DIRECTIONS FOR ITS CULTIVATION
A VALUABLE PAPER.
The following instructions for
the cultivation of sorghum have
been furnished us by Messrs Lewis
Wilhelm & Johnson, of this city,
and will be of great interest to
persons who contemplate the cul
tivation of sorghum this year.
There is no longer any doubt of
the fact that sugar can be made
successfully and profitably by the
new process, and we advise farm
ers to give the following a careful
When we assert that a superior
article of syrup and a fair article
of sugar can be made from sor
ghum canes we know that we
have all kinds of prejudices and
objections to meet. We can only
meet these objections and over
come these prejudices by the as
sistance of.farmers who are will
ing to give sorghum a fair trial.
To do this they must begin by
procuring and planting pure seed.
This need not be urged upon those
who have planted pure seed and
made a gallon of syrup to four or
five gallons of green juice, while
it takes from seven to ten gallons
of juice of hybredized canes to
make one gallon of very ordinary
syrup. There is no other remedy
for this falling off than the plant
ing pure, well manured seed. In
order to procure good seed the
cane must be carefully cultivated
for the seed alone, and not for the
syrup, by allowing the seed to
mature and dry on the stalk in
A year ago we paid as high as
sixty-five cents per pound for seed
to distribute gratuitously to far
mers. Last summerwehadtheseed
eultivated by careful farmers. We
are prepared to fill orders for pure
seed at cost price. We do this.
hoping to remove the prejudices
:;nd make the cultivation of sor
Ah;m a success.
In planting, we advise farmers
1o avoi is much as possible.
black, mucky soils; if planted up
on bottom lands at all, it should
be dry, sandy soil. Very rich
soil of any kind is not favorable
to the production of light syrups.
Good laid, not foul with weeds,
should be planted in drills. As
much of the cane should be al
lowed to stand as the ground will
bear. Of this farmers must judge
for themselves. A large over
grown stalk is not the best for
syrup or sugar, but the medium
or even small stalks are better
than the large, rank cane often
seen of rich soil If the soil is
not good or is foul the seed should
be planted in hills.
Sorghumi whbile growing requires
very close attention until it is
well started, and then it will leave
weeds and everything else in the
hack-ground. The seed should be
prepared first by cleaning and
then by pouring warm water over
it until covered two three inches
in the vessel. If well stirred the
light chaffy seeds will rise to the
surface, which should be removwed.
The vessel should then be set in a
warm place until the hull of the
seed shows a disposition to burst,
then the seed should be spread
out until nearly dry, and in this
condition should be placed in the
ground. If tl.is plan is strictly
observed every seed will grow.
if planted in drills one seed in a
hill is sufficient. If planted in
ills two to five seed are all that
The ground should be well pul
verized. The best way is to throw
two furrows together and plant
the seed on the ridge. It should
be covered as lightly as possible,
and the cane will appear in a few
days. It will require careful nurs
ing for a short time, but it will
soon become strong and will over
come all obstacles. It should not
be "thinned" too much. Let as
much grow as the ground will
The best varieties of cane for
syrup are the old fashioned Chi
nese, or black top, and red top, or
Liberian cane. The most success
ful for producing sugar, so far as
yet demonstrated, is the Oomce
anna, or black lmphee, or African
These few hints will suffice for
the present, but before the cutting
season we will publish a pamph
let containing minute directions
for harvesting the cane and man
ufacturing the syrup, sothat where
there is sugar naturally we may
have the benefit of it. We will
also give directions how to make
te skimmings and waste profita
ble. In short, we will show how
to make sorghum the most profit
able orop in the country.

and I. and now we haven't many
neighbors,, though those we have
are good ones.
One day, about ten years ago,
I went a way from home to sell
some fifty head of cattle-fine
creatures as ever I saw. I was to
buy some groceries and dry goods
before I came back; and, above all,
a doll for our youngest Dolly. She
had never had a store doll of her
own-only the rag babies her
mother bad made her. Dol
ly could talk. of nothing else,
and went down to the very gate
to call after me to "buy a big one."
Nobody but a parent can under
stand how full my mind was of
that toy, and how, when the cattle
were sold, the first thing, 1 hurried
off to buy Dolly's doll. I found a
large one, with eyes that would
open and shut when you pulled a
wire, and had it wrapped up in
paper, and tucked it under my
arm, while I had the parcels of
calico and delaine. and tea and
sugar put up. Then late as it was,
I started for home. It might have
been more prudent to stay until
morning, but I felt anxious to get
back, and eager to hear Dolly's
prattle about her toy.
I was mounted on a steady-going
old horse of mine, and pretty well
loaded. Night set in before I was
a mile from town, and settled
down dark as pitch while I was in
the middle of the wildest bit of
road I know of. I could have felt

so well ; and it was almost

I am not supersititious-not
very, but how could a real child be
out on the prairie in sue-h a night,
at such an hour. It might be
more than human.
The bit of a coward that hides
itself in most men showed itself to
me then, and I was half inclined
to run away, but once more I
heard that cry, and said I:
"If any man's child is herea
bouts, Anthony Hunt is not the
man to let it die."
I searched again. At last I be
thought me ot a hollow under the
hill, and groping that way, sure
enough I found a little dripping
thing, that moaned and sobbed as
I took it in my arms. I called my
horse, and the beast came to me,

A Genuine Snake Story.
The statement published in last
Sunday's Times, that the steam
ship Mexico, Captain Pitfield,
when, on her last trip, off the Tor
tugas, steamed through a tangled
mass of snakes of all sizes, has
since been the subject of much com
ment. "Snake stories" are pro
verbially uncertain, but we are
now enabled authoritatively to de I
clare that this particular story may
safely be relied upon:
Our-original account was incor
rect in one particular only. In
stead of two hours and a half, as
stated, the Mexico was no more
than one hour and a half in passing
through this horrible mass of
writhing reptiles. They n ere of
all sizes, from the ordinary green
water-snake of two feet, to mon
sters-genuine "sea serpents"
of 14 to 15fleet in length. The lar
ger snakes, when the swell pro
duced by the movement of the
vesssel reached them, would, we
are informed, partly raise them
selves up from the water, as in the
attitude of striking, and dart out
their tongues wickedly at the
waves. The greatest interest-as
was natural-was manifested by
those on board the Mexico Dis

sight that, so fatr as is shown by
sea annals, has never yet beeti

which may, possibly, never greet
human eyes again. We can think
of no valid explanation on the
subject, unless it be-taking our
inspiration from the "day"-that

ROUND DANcES.-The Virgin

the subject of dancing. The Rich

the subject may be gathered from
the following excited sentences :
Maidens, do you not remember

If no other reason than the

enchained, led captive by her for

streams from her many wounds!
The laurel wreath torn from her
brow, lies at her feet, bedewed
with blood ; she raises aloft her
beautious hands, and her moun

of her manacles-and yet she sees
in all her woe. a spectacle more
terrible than chains or blood. Her
unnatural children, who should be
pouring halrn in those wounds,
who should bind up that broken
heart, mock at her grief, by throw
