,;; r What Does the Soil Need ? . f.
The reader is ready to ask, how am I
and other planters to know what our 'soils
need to make them producegood crops,
you say the analysis of .the soil will , not
tell as? - t We reply, resort ; to tne plant
analysis, i Ask jour soil a series of ques-
hods sucn same " j
potash ? Do you need ammonia ? Do
you need phosphoric acid, or do you need
any two or all of thete? How shall I ask
these questions, and bow shall I interpret
the reply ? Select a plt of land which
will represent fairly your soil, or several
such plats, if you have soil differing ma
terially in character and supposed compo
sition. Next get a few pounds of muriate
of potash, a few pounds of sulphate am
monia, and some high grade superphos--nA
ntinsnhate. If vou have a
State Department having supervision of
spected and analyzed. Ask the chemist
ot your State College, or your Commis
sioner of Agriculture, to suggest the
quantities of each of these elements to
apply per aore, and then apply to one
plat, say three tows sixty feet long, only
potash ; to three others, only phosphoric
acid J to three others, only ammonia; to
three others, potash and phosphoric acid ;
to three others, phosphoric acid and am
monia, and to still another three, all three
of these elements, leaving three rows in
the centre of the plat without the applica
tion of any manure whatever. If your
soil needs nothing but phosphoric acid, it
will say so by giving the largest yield
where phosphoric acid is used, whether
alone or in combination. If it needs two
of the elements, that combination will
give best results. If it needs all three, or
the so-called complete manure, the plat
on which all were used will show the
best results. If individuals cannot afford
to undertake these inquiries, let clubs
combine to bear the expense, and impose
the investigation on their most careful
and accurate observer. If this cannot be
done, insist upon your. Commissioner of
Agriculture selecting careful men in dif
ferent parts of our State to conduct the
inquiry under his direction, he to supply
the material, etc., and publish results. If
you have a General Assembly with intelli
gence And statesmanship enough, get them
to establish one or more experimental sta
tions in your State with your money which
you pay for the support . of your govern
ment, to be administered-; by your, ser
vants). If you; farmers who read and
think and know the needs of the produc
tive industries of your States, will wield
the influence you should andean, if you
will, you can instruct your brethren of the
plow first, and 'then your servants' who

Lean and Fat Pork. .
A recent English - writer insists that
the coarsest Berkshire that can be - found,
if well fed and nursed for three months
and allowed to develop muscle ; in a pas
ture or straw yard, as the ' season suits,
and then properly: fed, may be brought
to a weight of 160 pounds in eight or nine
months, and in such hogs .both lean and
fat will be of the finest quality and' when
properly cured command the top of the
market. It is : claimed that to-day the
highest prices paid in London are for long
nosed Irish hogs of the coarsest quality; is
judged by popular showyard ! standard.
There are curious facts stated in illustra
tion of this point. A noted breeder sent
to the Royal Agricultural Society's exhi
bition, two old mates, one of the fashion
able type, the other a ' specimen of the
pure old Berkshire stock. The former
took the premium, of course, and the
owner straightway sold him- and bred
from the other for commercial purposes.
The moat famous caterers of London do
not buy prize hogs. 'The fancy bacon
carers aiso avoid ine aumpy ana exces
sively fat and fashionable style. ."
t8T" Live stock will require more at
tention now as the nights get colder and
longer, and this attention it is necessary
should be given by , the , owner or some
one with a direct interest in " its well do
ing. It is. worth remembering that an
animal in good condition at the start will
keep in good health .; and t vigor ' on less
fooa than will be required, to .bring it up
again if it once falls off and runs down in
flesh. . ' -' ' '
Be careful to give the cattle some dry
food when the pastures fall off, even if it
is only: a run at the straw pile, anddo not
neglect to provide shelter against' .storms
and high cold winds, now liable to pre
vail. When pumpkins haver Jbeen raised
now is the time to feed them, as many are
lost if kept. In feeding to sows with
young pigs remove the seeds, as they are
diuretic in their quality and , affect them
injuriously. Pumpkins are very helpful
in starting hogs intended tQ be killed for
pork this fall, but they should also have
good rations of corn. This is a good sea
son for thinning out your cows and get
ting rid of the poor ones. , Lambs .should
be kept in a ' pasture separate 1 from" ' thfc
older sheep and fed some : bran ' or corn
and oats mixed, as they need this help to
the growth of Iheir frames. -
t-ST" In feeding breeding bows care
must be taken to keep them . merely .in
good!growing condition, and not fat, while
carrying their young, for too high feed
ing makes it difficult and dangerous to
deliver their young, . as well as causes
constipation, from ." which'; cause ' many
sows eat their young. After the pigs are
farrowed, the sows should be fed all they
can stand to, for they ;. need it to keep
their litter growing rapidly and healthy,
milk being the very best thing for both
the lows arid their1 young. A . most ex
cellent feed is a slop made from corn and
oats ground and soured ; with hot water.
On this feed, in connection with ; what can
be given them from the dairy, they are
sure to grow rapidly, if theyZget; enough
of it and have., comfortable,., roomy and
cleanly quarters assigned to them. - ;
fcst" No one should ever place a light
or lantern on a barn floor, or on -a- shop
floor where there are shavings. -It is a
very easy thing to upset ai light o placed,
and the result is likely to be the conflagra
tion of the building. ,It is much more
prudent' to place hooks here And : there
about the premises, and have it understood
that they are solely to hang the lantern
upon, and that other things must be kept
off them. An unprotected, light 'should
not be allowed in barn ; nude any cir
cumstances. lIf ,,ihe"kerosehe"' Tamp had

Oats, and Rye.
Oats is the poor man's ,crop, for it will
grow on poorer soil than any of the small
grains, but this is not advancing the idea
that it likes a poor soil the best; a gener
ous supply of plant-food tells on it with it
great promptness and increase both yield
and quality wonderfully. '
1 The present is a very good time for Bow
ing oats, and it will come profitable bo wn
any time from, now on to the first of
December. We have raised fine oatson
our sweet pbtatoe patch by simply sowing
among the. vines ahead of the ploughs that
were turning' out the potato crop. -', Noth
ing further- was thought necessary the
oats found its way up through the dirt in
due time and grew like a swamp mead
It i3 hard telling what kind of soil is
best suited for oats, provided it is reasona
bly rich, for it seems to do well on a'l
kinds of cultivatable- and well-drained
Boils. If it really has any preference pro
bably lies in favor of eoil containing a pro
portion of sand. In preparing the soil for
the crop the usual and best way is to
break thoroughly and deep, working in
the fertilizer if one is used. The seed is
then Bown broadoast and harrowed in, A
good drill does the work better than
broadcasting by hand, but as these are
not very common it the South, hand
broadcasting is the method most general
ly resorted to. In some cases the seed is
put under by cross-ploughing after the
sower, running lightly; in others it is mere
ly dragged under with a busth or tree-top
moved by mules or oxen. One of . the
most slovenly ways of putting in oats is to
sow the seed on the rough land before
breaking, and then simply turn it under
with the plough, doing nothing more. Of
course it cannot come np so quickly, sown
in this war. still we must admit that we
have seen many very fair oats that had
been put in on this slouch y plan. If the
plough should leave the land rather clod
dy the clods might be broken by dragging
a brush over them. About two bushels of
seed oats will be required to properly sow
an acre of land broadcast. The yield on
fair land ought to be about fifty bushels to
Next to oats, rye is one of our best winter-feed
crops. It is not such a universal
favorite as oats, the civilized world hav
ing, by common con Beut, put it among the
plebians and forced it to do the agricul
tural drudgery on scant allowance. But
it is one of the most patient of growths
under neglect, ' cheerfully bearing more
abuse than any other crop; and yet,
strange as it . may seem, there are few
crops grown more ready to render a rich
and profitable return for good care and
good culture.. Give it a well-drained
piece of land and small quantity of some
fertilizing agent,' with a fair .showing ' in
the way of "putting in," and it may be
grown from year to year, on the same
ground, with better results than any of
the other cultivated cereals. ; '
The best soil for rye is a rich sandy
loam, though like oats,' it is riot very
particular relative to the mineral character
of the soil. In the old States of the North,
where it is quite extensively grown, the
usual plan is to turn up an old field which
has lain idle or been in pasture for some
time, and Bow it to rye .without manure.
In return the farmer gets from fifteen to
twenty bushels of grain per acre, and
straw which satisfies him. : But had he
added to the land a ' few cords of good
compost he would have harvested forty or
fifty bushels of grain to the acre, with
double the quantity of straw. ' The same
rule would work out the same results in
the South, where rye is perfectly at home
a paying crop might be made on poor
land, but a arop on land made middlingly
rich would pay much better.
As in the case of oats the present is a
good time for sowing rye' in the lower
South, and it will come very well1 if sown
several weeks later. The "putting -in"
does uot differ materially from that of oats.
About a bushels and three pecks will be
required to broadcast an acre. ' ; ,
lhe botanical name of our common rye
is Secale cereale. It was cultivated in very
early days, and Pliny seemed to think
that it had originated ' along the Bhores of
the Black Sea. It makes a splendid green
forage; and bears pasturage in winter ex
ceedingly 'well. We think'it - exhausts
land rather less than oats, which is Baying
a great deal for it. Both crops are valua
ble to turn under in the spring as a green
manure. Weekly Register. ' -

: ?A remarkable face attending all the
great railroads of the United States is the
immense wealth of their leading officials.
It is confined to no State, and is exception
al to all the other employments. The
grand t st talent and greatest learning in
law; physic, and other learned avocations,
accumulate a few thousands only in a life
time. But railroad officials, often rising
from mere clerkships, rod men, ticket and
other agents, with salaries running from
hundreds to a few thousands, eventuate as
possessors of many millions. It is no un
common thing to see a railroad president
from the humblest station in the course of
fifteen to twenty-five years, becoming the
ownes of five, ten, or even twenty mil
lions, at a salary whioh would not aver
age, for the whole time, over ten or twelve
thousand -dollars. These are mysteries
which the common people cannot under
