fir Advantages of Small Farms
and Intensive Farming.
apt JSfSS* Bcatf at ibo August Meeting
or t?e sedgefield Agriculture!
Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen .JAt
oar last meeting it was decided that
I should prepare an essay on " The
Advantages of Small Farms and In
tensive Faining/''' I donot feel com
petent to do justice to the question ;
nor will I have.the time to enter into
full details of this matter.
Bnt aa the question is of so much
importances oar country and State,
I would feel like 1 was shirking a
duty not to say something ; and per
haps what I Bay may b? a key to un.
lock oar minda to the fact that small
farms are the salvation of our coun
try, and the only way for a farmer to
be happy-with cash in his purse to
spend for the comforts of life.
~ -~~&cmc* bad a talk with a northern
man, who said that in his country 40
acres was considered a good farm,
and 100 acres a large farm. In Chi
na, they say, a man can support his
family on 4 acres. I told thia north
erner that some pf our plantera had
2,000 acres of land ; and he asked me
if I knew that there was such a t hing
as being " land poor," -and making a
failure on a large farm wheo a email
one would pay.
It is the dollars saved, not made,
that make men rich. As I have nev
er owned a very large farm, I cannot
apeak as to them except from observa
tion ; bot judging by the want of im
provements, rotten barns and empty
cribs that I see, it seems that only a
narrow living cornea from them-and
not profits enough to keep the ho oses
in decent repair. You all know the
troubles of farming, now that tba la
bor of a large farm is generally jiagrp
to hardships and exposura ; and a liv
ing is all they want. And they can
live on very little-happy with a bor
rowed mole and an umbrella on the
road to church. Now who ia it that
keeps np all the happiness of the col
ored man ? The land owner of course ;
and the more negroes he has, the
more it takes to keep them up.
Houses to live in, firewood and
well water, and supplies, are all fur
nished by the land owner. If a crop
ia made, we may come out even ; if
not, the landlord loses. With these
losses, added to the heavy, drenching
raine and the uncertainty of seasons,
we Bee no profits io large farms.
So small farms mnst pay, or none.
Bat; say some, we have emull farms
too that do not seem to pay. This is
- true. -Bot whose fault is it? Such
farmers do not start right ; they shut
their eyes to the expenses, and lea e
it too much to the land to make a
crop, without; proper help, following
in the wake of the man with a big
Some think they must pnt in
large crop, and must take in all the
rocky knolls and gully-washed hills|
when it would be far better to leave
sack places alone, and select only land
with a good Boil to improve. Lat the
large land owner, instead, select a few
acres, that can be bnilt up to raise 2
balee-of; cotton or 50 bushels of oats
to the acre, and bring it up to a fine
state of cultivation. Do not let the
poor land eat op the profits of the
good lots. Do not let a trifling ten
ant eat up the profits of a good one.
Farming requireahard study. Law
yera, ministers and doctors have to
scratch their weary heads and learn
the principles and rules of their pro
fession; and likewise must a farmer
study the nature of his soil, and the
kinds of manare that suit it. Farm
ere have to count on the uncertainty
of seasons ; and they also have to
study human nature to deserve and
maintain the respect of their laborers.
These are the elements of success
ful farming: 1st, good labor; 2od,
good stock ; 3rd, good implements and
tools ; 4tb, good manure. First, good
hands with poor stock, ia time thrown
away. Second, good stock with poor
' land, is a waste of money. Third,
bad tools, even with good hands and
good land, ia a waste cf labor. Fourth,
all the best labor and tools and stock
on poor land, ia the most awful of all
wastes. Therefore hy all meaos mo
nure mil. This is the grandest de.
sideratum of all. Combine and change,
the manare. Some, I know, will say
that by the time we procure good
toola, stock and labor, and then ma
nore heavily, it will take al! the prof
its. I deny the assertion. Without
all this, you will reap nothing; with
all this, you have the power to make
good crops, and live in peace of mind.
Others will say they see no money in
either mode. And truly, by the way
some of as manage, it is a matter of
congratulation;that we live at all.
Bat let us see if there is not even
more than a Hying on a small farm.
Take an ordinary 4 horse, farm, and
reduce it to 2 horses and two hands;
let one-half of it rest. I think ten
acres of li?.ad with a year's rest will
make a bale of cotton more the year
following ; or else sow it down. You
can sow thia land, ieap and house
your produce for 3} dollars per acre.
Or you can do this work in spare time,
with your 2 horse farm labor. Yon
can raise from 10 to 20 bushels of oats
per acre on thie land ; you can feed
your two horses off of it, and buy
neither corn nor manure. Hire only
good, efficient laborers ; do not take
the refuse of the j aila and orphan
asylums. If you rent out any land,
rent only to good tenants, and tee
that they change the land and do not
wear it ont. Turn off promptly all
bad men. Take 40 acres, say, to cul
tivate, and sow down 40 acres every
year. Follow this plan. Give your
40 acres in cotton a liberal manuring,
and by sowing it in grain after cot
ton, you have a good stubble and oats
to feed on, besides some to sell. It ia
said that an oat crop will impoverish
sand land. I do not believe it, though
my own land is clay. Ten years ago
1 took land that was poor, and I have
been making many good crops on it.
"With good manuring, I have raised
as much as 1600 lbs. of lint cotton on
2 acres; on other lands I have raised
1200 lbs. seed cotton to the acre.
In 18811 cut off 80 acres of land,
lying well, flat and convenient. I
took 2 of my best mules, hired 3 of
the best hands, and sowed down 40
acres of it. I bought good implements
and used plenty of manure. My profr
its, net, were $800 on this land. In
18S2, changing my laud, ? cleared
$1,300 on this 2 mule farm. In 1884,
I cleared $1,100.
So I am decidedly of the opinion,
and I apeak knowingly, that the prof
itable method of farming is on a lim
ited area, well manured, weli pre
pared, and well worked.

A Blgber Average Couditlon Tbun for
WASHINGTON, Aug 10.-Returns
of the Department of Agriculture
make a slight improvement ol the
condition of cotton on the 1st of Au
gnat, the general averaga being 961
a point only once exceeded in the
August returns of t n years, 1880.
The average in August, 1882, was 94,
and only Sooth Crrolina and Ala
bama exceeded their present figures.
The State, averages are as follows:
Virginia 95, North Carolina 92, South
Carolina 96, Georgia 100, Florida 99,
Alabama 95, Mississippi 101, Louisi
ana 100, Texas 91, Arkansas 97, Ten
neasee 97. South Carolina, Louisiana
and Tennessee have made no change;
slight disadvantage * points, Jw
late, especially in the Atlantic States.
There has been little damage from
drought, rains or insects. A few re
ports from Texas, and occasionally
one from more Eastern States, indi
cate a lack of rain. A larger num
ber in the Gulf States, including a
few in Texaa, mention an excess of
moisture, which is injurious in the
flat lands. The shedding of forms
and bolls, with mst and blight, are
much leeH prevalent than nsnal. The
caterpillar has as yet done no damage,
though reported in several Counties
in South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama,
Louisiana and Texas; it is rare in
Mississippi and not reported in Ar
kansas and Tennessee.
The Country's Crops.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 10.-The fol
lowing is the Agricultural Bureau's
resume of the grain crops:
Corn has made improvement since
the last report. The average st?nde
4 points lower than the standard of
foll condition and indicatea a yield,
with reasonable moisture and favor
ing temperature hereafter, of 26 to
27 bushels per acre. The average for
August of 1884 was the same, but
fell 3 points during the 00 days fol
lowing, when the yield was 26 bush
els. In 1879 the average for August
waB'99 and the ultimate yield PO re
ported by the census was 28 bushels.
The increase has been 2 points in New
York, 3 in Virginia, North Carolina
1, Georgia 2, Alabama 1, Michigan 5(
Illinois 4, Missouri 2, Kaneas 7, Ne
braska 3, and Iowa 9. There has
been a slight decline in Pennsylvania,
Maryland, South Carolina, Tennessee,
Texas, Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana,
rn seven corn States the averages are ?
Michigan 96, Indiana 95, Illinois 94,
Iowa 101, Nebraska 100, Missouri 89,
Kaneas 90. Correspondents report
irought in some places and excess of
rain in others, but well drained and
openly cultivated land has suffered
it tie from drought or super satura
tion. The meteorological conditions
have been generally favorable. The
prospect has not been exceeded since
WHUAT.-The moist and hot weath
er following the 15th of July has ,
?aimed t ome damage to Spring wheat
n the Northwest, mainly in Wiscon
lin and Minnesota. While generally
JO ticed, its effects are variously re J
)orted, prominent Counties returning
rom 100 down to 85, and in a few 1
?asea down to 60, and 48 in the case ]
if Pierce County, Wisconsin. Most 1
f the great wheat ConntieB in Min
lesota report averages from 75 to 90, ?
hongh Dodge returns only 50. Some 1
f the less important make an aver- j
ge of 100. The reduction in the
rospective yield is greatest in Min
esota, amounting to 9 points. The
ecline ie 5 in Wisconsin, 4 in Iowa, '
nd 1 in Dakota. There is an increase 8
i the other Territories, and in New *
!ngland the average decline is 4 8
oints and indicates a reduction of v
,000,000 of bushels from tho expec
ition on the let of July. No reporta
geming the result of the thresh- ' \
ing of Winter wheat are received ex
cept m the South. In Texan the out
come ia greater than was: expected
and higher ratio yields are reported.
OTHER CHOPS.-The average for
oats has declined from 97 to OG, which
is 4 points higher than in August of |
laBt year. Bye averages 94, showing
continued improvement since the 1st
of Jun9. Barley stands, as in the
last report, at 92, which indicates
about an average crop for any series
of five or ten years. Theie is an in
crease in area of buckwheat and the
condition averages 95. ? medium
crop of hay is assured by an average
of 93. Tobacco makes a general av
erage of 91. The average for pota
toes is 95 against 97 last month.
SPLENDID CORN.-Mr. Jonathan
M. Miller exhibits at the Chronicle
office some specimens of native corn
stalks, raised by him near Augusta,
that merit attention. These stalks
are at least fourteen feet high. The
ears, two enormous oneB to each stalk,
are ten feet from the ground. The
seed from which these grand stalks
sprang is known as the Holley varie
ty. Mr. Charles Holley originated
this peculiar growth, and by so doing
proved a benefactor to the swamp
planters. The ears growing so high
up on the stalk are placed beyond
danger from freshets. We doubt if
any corn in this country can surpass
the Holley variety, for all good qu di
ties, and it seems certain that none
approaches it for swamp planting.
Superintendent at Graceville.
The office of Superintendent of thc
Graniieville Manufacturing Company
has been vacant for several months,
and during the time of the repairs on
the mill and extensive improvements
in the old grauite factory the double
duties ol President and Superintend
ent have beeu 6Ued by President H.
Now, however, that the busy season
is approaching, and preparations ar?
making to run the improved mill to
its full capacity, a successor to Mr.
Howland has been appointed by the
President and directors, and they
have appointed Mr. T. H. Rennie, a
young employee of the company for
the past two or threeyears. Mr. Ren
nie isa bright and business like young
man well posted in mill and mechani
cal matters, and ie perhaps the young
est mill superintendent in the country,
bbing only 32. He has been an over
seer in the card room, and has proven
so capable and promising that he has
been promoted to his present position.
This is a very high compliment,
The policemen on guard about Gen.
Grants tomb spent much of their
time yesterday in denying relic hunt
ers permission to pass the ropes, but
two men wearing Grand Army badges
were indefatigable in their efforts
Finally they accost ?d Eugineer Kel
logg and asked him to get them some
little trifle that they could carry
home as a memento of their visit. Mr.
Kellogg picked up a piece of snow
white maible that came from the
block the coffin rests were hewn from,
and which had been used as a wedge
in transporting them from thu yard.
It was the only piece he could find,
and he was puzzled which man to gi ve
"I fought with him at Vicksburg,"
said one soldier, eyeing the piece of
stone as eagerly as a hungry .school
boy would look at a big red apple.
'I went through the Wilderness
with him." remarked the second ap
plicant, as if he believed thal ought
to settle it.
"Well, I'm not enough of a lawyer
to discriminate between two such
claims as that," said Mr. Kellogg,
"bot I see another way out of the
difficulty." He crossed over to ono
of the masons, aLd JR little lump of
marble passed under the mallet and
chisel. . In a few seconds Mr. Kellogg
came back with two pi ?cea, each one
about the size of a goose egg. He
gave one piece to each soldier, and
sent them away radiant with happi
ness.-New York Times, August 9.
AFTER TUE FUNERAL.-General
Grant's funeral, cost $20,000. N- w
comes the pay. New York was en
riched millions of dollars by the
pageaut and ought lo foot the bi HP
but does not .volunteer to do no. An
attempt viii probably be made to get
Congressional liquidation, leaving
New York a clean profit. Phi adel

bossed the job for the money tiiere
was in it, and the Press rather maka*

We are gradually getting at the
uncanny side of the funeral now that

From the Reverend Clergy.
Among the many ministers of the
gospel, who have been helped by
Brown's Iron Bitters, the Rev. E. A.
Spring, Corpdon, Iowa, says, "I used
it for general ill-health and found it
i great help." Rev. Jas. McCarty,
Fort Stevenson, Dakota, says, "It
;ured me of severe dyspepsia and
ncreaeed my weight twenty-five
jounds." The Rev. Mr. Offey, New
Bern, N. C., Bays he has taken it, and
considers it one of th? best medicines
inown. The Rev. Mr. Whitney,
lingham, Wis, says, "After a long

A MARVELOUS STORY
TOLD IN TWO LETTERS.
FROM THE SC " York, Oct IS,'1882.
" Ceniltmen: My / lier resides at Glover,
Vc lie bas been a great sufferer from Scrof
ula, and tho inclosed letter will tell you what
a miu vel?os effect
lias lind In his casa. I think bli blood most '
Lavo contained the humor for at least ten
years ; but it did not sh ow, except th the form
ot a scrof nions sore on tho wrist, until nt *
five years ago. From a few spots which
reared at that timo, lt gradually spread so as
to cover his entiro body. I assure you ho was
terribly afflicted, and an object of pity, when
he bogan using your medicino. Now, therearo
few men of his ago who enjoy as good health
os ho lins. I could easily nomo fl?ly perno ns
who wonld testify to tho facts in his case.
Yours truly, W. M. Pniuupa."

a duty for me to s ta to to you the benefit I
have derived from tho uso of
Six months ago I was completely coveredwlUi,.
a terrible humor and scrofulous sores. - Tua
humor caused an incessant and Intolerable
Itching, and the skin crocked so as to causa
the blood to flow in many places whenever
I moved. My sufferings were great, and my
life a bnrden. I commenced tho cse-of tho
SARSAPARILLA in April last, and have used
it regularly siueo that time. My condition
began to Improve nt onco. Tho sores hava
nil healed, and I feel perfectly well In every
respect-being now able to do a good day's
work, although 73 years of ago. Many Inquire
what hos wrought such a cure In my case, and
I tell them, as I have here tried to tell you,
AYER'S SARSAPARILLA. Glover, Vt, Oct.

tho bowels, and thus restores vitality and
strengthens tho whole system.

A Terrible Cough Cured.
" In 18571 took a severe cold, which affected
my lungs. I had a terrible cough, ai id parsed

sleep, nnd fttforded mo tho rest necessary

continued uso of the PECTORAL a perma
