Experiment in V? heat Culture?
We are indebted to a friend for the
following letter from Dr. A. C. FULLER,
of Laurens District, aa experienced and
practical formar, lt would give us great
pleasure to enrich our columns with just
such information as the Doctor gives,
and enable us thereby to assist in the
work of recuperating and energizing farm
operations in this section :
Hos. R. F. SIMPSON-Dear Sir:
Your favor of the *-2.KII nit., making in

Manure holds the same relation to th
finn that steam docs to tho entine; i: i
the force used to accomplish the result
Let thc one fail in the engine ?ind iii
wheels slop, let thc other be withdrawn
from the soil and its useful products rap
idly and constantly diminish. If the
farmer cannot manure every crop, the?
he should consider from which he can h esl
withhold the fertilizers. If he designed
growing a crop of oats, followed by one
of wheat, it would not be wise to npph
the manure to the oat crop and give nom
to the wheat. It would not pay as well :
the crop of manure would be sold in ??
cheap market. So, too, it might be inju
rious to manure a crop of potatoes and
ha\ e none to apply to the succeeding grain
Tht season ia which .manure should b<
applied, the stage of the crop, and th.
depth at which it should be placed, an
. also topics which the farmer should th uk
much about. Many consider that if ma
nure is only buried in the soil it is enough
no matter whether it be deep or shallow
whether the subsoil be firm or leachy
if the manure is in the earth, thc crops,
they argue, will get the full benefit of i;
-some time or another, i?ut this is not
always true, and it is certainly more
seicnti'ic and profitable farming to appl\
manure-not to increase the general fer
tility of thc soil with a view to be bone
fiiting several crops in succession-but
to duectiy augment the yield of a speei
ficd crop. This course will bring the
most profit, forproducts which command ( p
. the highest prices arc thu? largely in-js;
Doubticss most, farmers will assent to
the assertion that thc wheat crop need.- s;
manure as much as any other one, and rc
pays as well for its liberal application, tl
\j r the profits of this operation may bi- al
greatly varied by thc manner in which ii c<
is clo ie. Flowing ?ii manure deeply will tv
not give UH good results as placing it on. pi
or just under, the surface, lt is less labor
for tho larmer to plow in the manure, for
it is easier to haul it in on hard surface w
than over fresh plowed ground. And it
then is it ont of the way of the harrow m
and the drill ; but when buried deep it dr
does not nourish the young plant in it* th
first growth, uni impart to it strength and eh
size to endure the approaching winter, fri
Nor does it mulch thc surface and protect m
thc plants from heaving frost and blight- tai
ing winds. The rains in their descent be
wa<h the soluble clements downwards in;
?nd away from the searching roots. Sur- bh
face, manuring reverses these processps, tel
and is more rational and productive of an
moro immediate and visible results. At
Well fermented farm-yard manure is as
good enough for any crop, and the best int
manure for all, but the trouble is we can't res
get enough of it. Whenever the wheat ins
grower can alford to purchase and use the sui
fertilizers is a question which we must a f
settle by experiment and observation, mu
Lime may often be used with great pro- stn
fit ; plaster is beneficial in some seasons, ' the
and salt returns a libera! profit if sown
on land rich in humus. Fertilizer*] for
the wheat plant should be applied before
the seed iias germinated, as a general
rule, at lea>t before the spring growth
begins. The preferable lime is just be
fore sowing.-Kural New Yorker.
fj?r* The Phoenix Guano, on hand in
large quantities, and sold at the lowest fig
ures by WILCOX, Ginns & Co., Augusta, is
said to be one of the best fertilizers for
the Wheat and other grain crops. Try a
ton or two of it on your Wheat. And
send in your orders immediately.
OCT A correspondent of the Southern
Cultivator says weil, and says truly:
.'Every larmer who is cultivating
as much as twenty or twenty-five acres of
?and, could wei! alford to pay you ten
dollar/! for the Cultivator, and if he
would read understandingly, mid thou
practice what he would gather from the
experience of your numerous intelligent
correspondents, it would be the host in
vestment he could possibly make."

How deplorable1 is the improvidence,
or negligence, or ignorance, call it what
you will, of many of our farmers and
planters, who give ruinous prices for con
centrated manuros of doubtful valu*',
while they aro surrounded at home with
all the materials for making cm their own
?arms, at half the cost, a botter article
than they can purchase from the manu
factures? We would point t< immy a
homestead in Maryland ?md Virginia,
around which tho. ashes from tho dwelling
and quarters have been accumulating for
half a century without being turned lo
account, and yet good farmers ut the
North are glad to give ten cents per
bushel fi>r wood ashes mid haul them ten
miles. The wonders wrought by Colonel
Capron fifteen years ago in the. improve
ment of the poor lauds around Laurel
factory between Baltimore and Washing
ton, arc due to the application of
wood ashes brought from a distance of
twenty miles. How rarely is the carcass
of any domestic animal converted into
manure? and yet a dead horse will make
a cord of the bert manure, abounding in
nitrogen and fully worth ten dollars. How
often in riding across the country, do we
see the skeletons of horses and cattle
bleaching in useless decay ? And yet
many a farmer gi ves, or complains he
connot give fifty cents a bushel for Lone
dust, when he could make it himself at
twenty-five, simply by lotting the ! ?fer.?
in his vicinity know that he wil! give ?
half a cent per pound for old bo ie**. We
remember seeing on the road between
Culpepper Court House and Woodville a
luise colcotha accumulated in this way.
and the hones, we were told, were di<
s lived ina weak solution of sulphuric
acid and mixed with woods oar:h. |>r...
dicing a home made concentrated manure
superior to the best Peruvian guano, und
a' half (he cost.
The annexed on this subject was com
municated to that able Journal, the South
ern Cultivator by a correspondent whose
appreciation of that noble old Hornau.
Governor Wise, cannot exceed our own
In January, 1SG0, 1 wrote to Cul. Nut.
Tvlor, of tho Richmond Enquirer, re
specting the commercial manures to be
had in that locality. He hande l my let
ter to Gen. Wisc, to whom it made refer
ence in another connection, but who re
plied to this part of it in this wise. I
extract from his letter as a favor to your
" You can't have the concentrated ma

times their value. Make your own ma
nure/ A pit t.vo feet deep, eight by
ten square-the bottom made firm and
inclining to one corner; at tho lower
corner place a reservoir, sunk below the
corner, to catch the fluid percolating
through composts in pit ; in that reservoir
fix a hand pump; cover the pit by a roof
on posts seven feet high above ground;
then in the bottom of the pit lay muck
eight inches thiek ; then cover the. muck
with the manure, finir inches thick ; then
muck again eight inches, u;td then manure
foul* inches; and so on until you roach up
four feet high or four and a half, and
then top on with muck-muck at top and
bottom. On the top put a trough or shal
low tray, with lHes in the bottom, this
tray, the same size of your compost heap,
say eight feet long, four feet wide, and
four and a half feet higii-a full cord of
more than one hundred and tweniy-t ght
cubic feet. Then dissolve one bushel of

Pour that brine in the reservoir; then
lissolve three bushels of limo in water
f.o make a strong milk of Hine. Pour
that miik in the brine in thc reservoir,
ind mix well. Then put your tray on ih<;
compost heap, and pump the salt mixture
tito the tray, and let tiie mixture percol
ate through the compost. It will run
?nek into the reservoir,' and can bc re
lumped, say once every two days, and
n six days you will have a cord of ma
mre equal to guano.''''
I shall try this process in thc fall season
know personally th:it Ex-Governor Wise
s one of the best informed and practical
nen in America. It strikes me however,
hat the process he describes may be ad
antageously dispensed with, by making
he compost h^aps in the open field, and
nixing the salt and lime mixture with
he muck and manure, as the layers are
'Ut into thc pens, and leaving them well
overed, to bo used on the ground at
Janting time. His process is indispon
ible to making a commercial manure
>r transportation. .
I suggest it is not. improbable that the
true end. of enriching the soil, might bc
lore advantageously attained by putting
ie muck and manure in the open furrow
S once, pouring the mixture upon it, and
avering it up with a turn [dow. Tho
hole subject is suggestive, and may
rompt practical experiments of value.
FALL Tor-DRESSING.-Every farmer
ho has practiced fall top dressing, knows
is invaluable. This does not ari - so
uch from tho. feitilizing matter in thc
'casing, as from the fiict that, it. protects
e surface of the earth from sudden hi
langes of the temperature-prevents its L
?ezing so early in the fal!, or losing ?ts Ii
oisture and heat by a- too direct con- at
ct with the wind. In short, tho real w
nefit of full top dressing is ?ti its mulch- ta
? the soil. Stable manure is too vulua- |e
? to be used for this purpose. Far bet- m
. to keep this lo apply in tho spring, nj
d then cover it with earth immediately, j ac
least ninety per cent, of manure, used ac
fall top-dressing, is wasted by passing [ni
o the atmosphere. Nearly thc same J la*
mks can be obtained by fall top-dress \ Fi
: with leaves, by straw, or any oiher
stance tnat W'H cover thc surface. Let yn
armer try the experiment, by thus ve
Ichiuga small piece of grass land with kn
iw, leaves, or other like substance, in Al
fall, and apply the manure in the mt
spring; and on another piece, apply the
same quantity of manure in the fail, and
aive us thc result.- Ohio Farmer:

DRILLING ' IN WHEAT.-Whenever a
wheat drill can be used without injury,
this "method of seeding has a decided ad
vantage over all others. Hy the breaking
down of the minute ridges thus formed
in the soil, the plant escapes winter-killing,
stands the action of the frost belier, and

For this purpose, tak<* 100 pounds, beaten
into as small fragments ?us possible, pack
them in a tight ca?-k or box with 100
pounds of good wood ashes. Mix with
the a-lies, before packing, 25 pounds of,
slacked lime, and 12 pounds of sal soda,
powdered fine. It will require about 20 1
gallons of water to sat?rale thc muss, but
more may bc added from time to time to
Maintain moisture. In two or three
weeks thc bones will be broken down
completely, and the whole turned out
ipon a flour, mixed with two bushels of
iry peat or good soil, and after drying is
it for use."

STOPPING THE FLOW OF BLOOD.-House

reqtiently receive severe cuts, from which

langers life itself. Blood may be made
o cease, to flow as follows: Take the fine
lust of tea and bind it close to the wound
-at all innes accessible and easy to be
ibtained. After the blood has ceased lo

LAND MEASUKE.-Every farmer should
ive a rod measure-a light, slid' pole-just
5? feet long, for measuring land. By a
ttle practice he can learn to step a rod
.five paces, which will answer very
eil for ordinary firm work. Asccr- \
'ming the number of rods in width and
ngtb of the lot you wish to measure, '
ultiply one into the other, and divide
f 1G0. and you have the number of
rcs, as 1G0 square rods make a square n
re. If you wish to lay off one acre, *
eas.iire. thirteen rods upon each. This i
sksi only a rod of full measure.-Prairie W
[A four rod tape line is better, when
u have a boy to carry one end. It is

Geo. W. Kendall writes from Texas to
the New Orleans Picayune, and gives
the following sensible views:
Thc lessons which adversity teaches
are hard, yet they must be learned. And
these lessons are always useful. 1 know
that it comes hard for a young man to
walk behind a plow who once rode be
hind a fast trotter: nor is it agreeable to
a young lady to make and put on her
dresses all by herself, who formerly had
a couple of servants to take these irksome
jobs off her hands. Yet I can see no
01 her remedy, at le;ict for those who have
simply been ruined by the war, and the
list is a long one. That a large majority
have accepted thc situation cheerfully, I
am glad to.say is true-I mean the situa
tion to earn their own living; all must do
it. And there are many who think, and
I am one of them, that in the long run it
will be all tho better for the lising gen
eration of the South-a generation which
is to follow one notoriously brought up
in ignorance of work and indolence as to
any useful occupation. The race of men
growing up will be more muscular-the
women .stronger and heartier-and their
children again improve upon the stock.
'I have never heard that exercise was hurt
ful, and I have consulted good physicians
on the sulject.
How often do wc hear our people com
plain that they have been out all day
hunting for a servant, without success.
Had they turned to in the morning they
could have done all their work themselves
in a couple, of "hours, and saved money
und shoe leather by the operation Too
many people in the South have been
brought up to be waited upon ; they must
now tie their own shoes, and 1 repeat that
the sooner they begin, the better it will
be. 1 know that many think they can
escape this state of things by going lo
Brazil, or some other out oft he-way coun
try ; but toil is is' the common lot of the
poor man the world over, so far asl have
seen, and in no p.nt of ihe. world is toil
as remunerative as in the Southern States
of America. Let us work.
