AN UMPIRE'S VALEDICTORY.
An umpire went.sallying out into the east,
Out into the east ere the sun went down.
He thought of the club that loved him
And the quickest way to leave the town,
But men must chin and boys must cheer,
And the umpire's lot is hard and drear,
Along with the crowd and ita groaning
A map stood up and called out Foul !
And called out Foul! with an angry
Then made for the gate with a sudden
While the mob with bricks tried to
knock him down.
For men will fight and boys will jeer,
And luck is best when the gate ia near,
To escape from the crowd and its groan
A doctor waa working the best he knew
The beet he knew how, aa the sun weat
He thought as he plastered the broken
Of the awful yells aud the missiles
thrown. . :
Fir clubs will play and mobs will fight,
.a.nd the' umpire's lucky if he lives till
To escape from the crowd and its groan
The CopdiUatt of Crops fo sooth |
COLUMBIA, S. C., August. 4.-The
State Department of Agriculture fur
nishes the following information re
garding the growing crops, derived
from the reports of its county and
Thc favorable condition of the cot
ton crop during June has been fully
maintained in.July. Throughout the
Slate generally the plant shows a rep
id and healthy growth, and the re
ports indicate one of the finest crops
grown in the State for many years.
?-In some sections the raine have been
excessive, and in others there has
bseu insufficient rainfall, but theee
cindi tiona exist only in a few locali
ties, and are hot general enough to
appreciably affect the crop.
The correspondents with scarcely
an exception; report that where the
trop has been well worked, and this
has been done very generally, the
prospects for a^ foll yield: are very
promieiug. , Caterpillars have ap
peared in Aiken, Darlington, Orange*
burg, Sumter, Beaufort, Berkeley,
Charleston, Colleton and Hampton,
but so far have done no serious harm
-but farmers are apprehensi .'o of
damage that may be done by second
The planters have begun the use
of Paris green in aome of the lower
,_counties, and this will be resorted to
iu other sections if necessary. Slight
Sledding ie noticed in localities, but
the crop baa sustained no injury from
" earo'cauae. ooma correspondente pay
that the plant is growing too much to
weed and is not fruiting well.
In a few townships labor baa cot
been sufficient to work the crop, a: d
that ie still grassy, and a small ana
has been abandoned from thia cause.
The condition, August lat, is re
ported: In upper Carolina at 101,
middle Carolina at 99 and lower Caro
lina at 98, average for the State, 99.
The following was the condition cn
the firet of Auguet in the years men
tioned: 1881,72; 1882,94; 1883,
79 and in 1884, 84. T?e condition is
higher than any repored by tbe Na
tional Department of Agriculture
6ince 1870. In that year it was re
ported at 101. The next highest re
porta made by that department were
in 1372.1880 and 1882, when it waa
estimated at 98.
The corn crcp is unusually good,
and many of the correspondents ex
press the opinion that it will be the
largest yield ever obtained in the
State. The early corn is safe for a
foll crop beyond all contingencies,
and the late planting premises equal
ly as well. The condition is reported
in upper Carolina 105, middle and
lower1" Caroliifa 101"; average for the
State 102;-'.against 87 for the esme
period last year.
The condition of rice ia reported
92 in the upper counties, and in lower
Carolina at 97. A correspondent in
Berkeley says : "It baa l&en almost
--~itripo^ibki owing to the frequent
rains, to destroy the grasa infthe rice
crops, but the prospects now Le V6iy
fine." -", .
The emaller crops have been necea
sarily neglected on account of the la
bor needed to keep the more import
ant crops well worked, and the condi
tion ie consequently lower than il
WGuld otherwise have been.
Sorghum ia reported at 98, augar
cane 95, peas 99, Irish potatoes 97
and sweet'r-otat'oea 99.
Facts About Hops.
?5 ii 5? ft . ii
From an, article on the position ol
the hop trade in Bradstreet's, we take
the following :
The American crop of 1884 was
estimated in round numbera follow? ;
New Yoik State,- 135,000 bale? ; Pa
cific coast, 75,000 bales ; other States,
10,000 ' balee ; total, 220,000 balea.
At present writing there aro probably
33,000 balea Pacifies, and 40,000
New York St atea Bli ll in first bands
at a conservative estimate. Few deal
era hold any hope to mention, but th?
brewers are almost all stocked up to
the fall. The new orop will be met,
therefore, by a surplus of about 70,
OOO bales on hand, or one-third of the
largest crop ever grown in the States.
The cost of raising hops in New
York State is given at 12j centtt per
pound, against 10* cents on the Pa
cific coast. The latter is so isolated
?rom the centra of consumption, how -
eyar, that 3 cents per pound must be
add?d for freight charges. Curre
quotations are 12 cents for clio
States, and 10 canta for Pacific-bei
below the coat of production, and r
lees the new crop should fail, pri<
moat inevitably go lower till nt
With a good crop wo shall not
surprised to soe prices drop fivo cer
per pound, which will barely cov
the cost of preparing tho hops I
inaiket, after taking them from t
polee. In any caae, however, it
not anticipated that good hops w
be left standing on the polea, even
the Pacific coast, where labor is
scarce and dear. Human nature
the same everywhere, and there a
few farmers who will not take t
chances of the future, and incur
little extra expert;e, rather than fa
a dead loss.
The best qualifi?e never go a bc
ging, but with the present accomoi
tion of stock, another season of ov
production will cause the lower grad
to be almost wholly neglected, unh
they sink to a sufficiently low ebb
induce speculation. There is probat
no other farm product which di flt
ao widely aa hops, between the big
est and lowest grades.

hat we have practised feeding dry

vs have believed it in every case bet

?nt, we have soiled or stall fed our
tock chit-fly, for many years, during
he nnramer sea-on, using large quat.
ities of green food, such as green rye,
lats, barley, corn, millet, clover and

ho hay mows for euch dry fodder as
vu happened to have on hand, and
ustas freely aa in the winter season.
)ne year we fed cored green rye ex
lusively, with the exception of grain
ar a period rf three weeks, after the

ry fodder aa very convenient to have

a fodder ia ordinarily cut and cured,

lough in the case of cattle that are
ccuBtotoed to it we have been able to

We are thia cummer keepiug actw

ie stable, which is cool, comfortable c
id free from troublesome Hies. It s
ia much lesa work to care for a cow
by this method than to cut green food
for her daily, or to drive her even a
short distance to pasture. Then the
manure can all be saved and applied
where it will be of mest use, instead
of being scattered about among weeds
und bushes, and in the pasture brook
or spring. The oiling system is sure
ly gaining favor through the country
year by year, and is being adopted in
part by a great many cow owners.
No more grain is required with dry
fodder than with green, but most
farmers would find it profitable to
feed cows more grain in summer than
they do. Their milk yield would
be greater, and the cows would keep
?ii better condition.-New England
