It is now ft suitable time to top-dress
the newly-planted wheat, oat, and grass
fields as well as the , lately plowed fal
low land for the general purpose of im
provement. Wheat and oats hav ing, for
the most part, been sowed late iu this
State, would be greatly benefitted by a
top-dressing of almost any coarse material
which would afford some shelter and pro
tection to the young, and necessarily ten
der, plants. Should the winter prove a
severe one, such protection might save the
crop, under the circumstances ; and, in
any case, it could not be other than bene
ficial to the grain, and also to the land.
We would advise, therefore, that farmers
who have planted any winter crop as
wheat, rye, oats, barley, 0r grass, should
top-dress the seed beds .with, barnyard
manure, litter from the ' woods,' straw, or
any coarse material that they have at
hand. Carry the material on. the land
only when the ground is frozen hard, or
the turning of the teams and carts will
cut up and displace much of the grain.
Let the litter be spread at once from the
cart, evenly aud rather thickly over the
surface, for if you undertake the work at
all, you had as well put on enough to do
some good. Of course the leading pur
pose of top-dressing the grain crops now
is, the protection it will afford them in
freezing weather, rather than any benefit
it may be to the soil and, therefore,
wheat or other straw will answer well
enough. If, however, the farmer has
stable or barnyard manure to spare, and
will heroically devote it to this use, the
frain will, beyond a doubt, show the wis
om of the application when the growing
weather of the spring comes again. Of
course the large grain planters, with their
hundreds of acres under cultivation, will
hardly be able to top-dress a tithe of their
crop. This, however, does not make it
any the less necessary. They must do
the best they can, and trust a good deal
to circumstances. Those who can top
dress their little plots for the home sup
ply ought, by all meane, to do so. It will
pay them in both the present and, future
crops. And the work should be done
without delay.- Already we have had
some hard freezing weather, and the
young and tender grain needs protection.
"And the fallow land that has been bro
ken up this Fall, if the ' farmer can find
the material, would derive, much benefit
from a good cover of litter, especially ot
the better kind, such as that from the
barnyard, the hog pens, and the compost
piles. For the general purpose of im
proving land, broadcasting is the proper
way to apply manure ; while for the bene
fit of a crop alone manuring in the hill or
drill is the better and more economical
way. Farmers are learning this,: and ac
cordingly they make more compost than
formerly, or use mainly such material as
may be readily and safely applied in this
They should not, however, neglect
broadcasting and top-dressing to improve
the entire body of the soil, and there in no
better time to do this than the present, or
belter way than by top-dressing with any
coarse manurial material about the farm.
The washing of the winter rain will dis
solve the fertilizing elements and incor
porate them with the soil in just the best
way to be of use to the succeeding crop,
and the slight' shelter offered the soil,
would also be highly beneficial. Any one
must have noticed the fine and mellow
condition of a spot of ground anywhere of
any kind of soil, that had been covered
with any coarse litter all winter. Though
the material may liUve been no more than
an inch in depth, and nothing but straw
or leaves, the improvement is marked.
And how much more so when the dressing
has been of rich manure.
We would say then, top-dress not ouly
the winter grain aud grass, but all your
fallow land also, as far as you can. And
always, when manuring for general im
provement, broadcast the matter; but
when manuring for a single crop, apply
manure in hill or drill. Get out to the
wood., then, with the carts, and
top-dress as much of your land as you
can. But take care to keep the carts off
the fields when they are thawing, or too
Boft to bear up the wheels from cutting
into the soil.
wf Under the heading. "Jute and
Indigo," the Florida Agriculturist says:
"We notice that a company has been
formed in Philadelphia for the purpose of
cultivating jute and indigo iii Florida.
Jute grows well in the State, and if it can
be grown with profit to compete with East
Indian cheap labor, will succeed, but the
culture of indigo here will bo a complete
failure. In the West Indies, with labor
at twenty-five cents per day, the cultiva
tion of indigo has been abandoned,1 and
now the chief supply comes from the East
Indies, with labor atoue dollar per month.
The labor of cultivating the plants being
light, it is just suited to the effete Coolies;
but even there it is doubtful if indigo wilt
be able to compete with the chemical dyes
that chemists are now making, to take the
Slace that it has hitherto been used lor.
Id records show that when indigo was
high in price, during the British occupa
tion of Florida, that the plants were
often eaten down by caterpillars, and the
whole crop ruined. Th is was the case in
many parts of the West Indies, so much
so that indigo was ever considered a pre
carious crop. A rainy season ruins it, and
a dry one kills the plants. The manufac
turing process is very unhealthy to those
engaged in it, the gases arising from the
fermentation of the leaves being very de
leterious. .We do not wish to condemn
needlessly any industry that would add
to the wealth of this State, but do not like
to see people throw away money iu
schemes that they have not well studied
before embarking in." -
- Cuek for Hoo Cholera. The Lewis
town (Md.) Gazette Bays that burnt corn
is a certain and speedy cure for hog chol
era. The best way is to 'make a pile of
corn on the cobs, effectually scorch it, and
then give the affected hogs free access to
it. This remedy was discovered by E. E.
Lock, at the time his distillery was burnt
in this country, together with a Jarge lot
of store corn, which was so much injured
as to be unfit for use, and greedily eaten
by the hogs, several of which were dying
daily. , After the second day not a single
hog was lost, and the disease entirely dis
aooeared. The remedv has been tripsin
a number of cases since, and has never
failed.' ; .

The smallest Crop since I860.
The National Department of Agriculture
under date of December loth reports the
condition of the cotton crop as reported to
the department lower than in anv season
since 1860. The general average of the
condition in October within certain limita
tions, affording the best indication of the
ultimate product, was 66, The nearest
approach to this figure in fifteen years
was in the short crop year of 1874 when
the average was 72. In June and July
the crop was within five points of the
standard of last year when the severe and
general drought set in, reducing heavily
the prospect, causing premature develop
ment ot the bolls and the arrest of the
growth, blight and rust. When the rains
came the second growth was too late to
produce much fruit. In addition to the
drought there was some loss from boll
worms aud much more Irom caterpillars.
The latter were reported in the Southern
and middle counties of bouth Carolina :
many of the Western and Southwestern
counties ol Georgia, Eastern and middle
Alabama, river district of Mississippi, a
few scattered tracts in Louisiana and Ar
kansas, and Western and Southern Texas.
The December returns of product oompared
with last year are astollows: .North Caro-
ina 71, South Carolina - 76, Georgia 80.
Florida 92, Alabama 83, Mississippi 73,
Louisiana 83. Texas 66, Arkansas 50. and
Tennessee 53. Returns of the condition
in October and the yield per acre estimated
for .November are more favorable than the
December returns of the comparative pro
duct, which are usually conservative and
somewhat lower than the outcome war
rants. Taking the reports of the season
together, up to December 1st the indica
tions point to a crop of about 4,900,000
bales, and a somewhat higher product ap
pears to be possible;
