ROTATION OF CROPS.
The persistent habit that we
have fallen into of cultivating large
areas of poor land that often do
not pay one-half the cost of culti
vation is the main cause of our
poverty. This habit should be
stopped, and our poor lands im
proved, else inevitable bankruptcy
awaits us. This is to be done in
two ways: first, by manuring and
second by a rotation of crops.
Both of these should be put in ope
ration, and perseveringly followed
up. Every pound of manure shouP
be saved and applied to the soil,
and a good rotation at once
In the adoption of a rotation
system, science comes to our aid
and clearly lays down the proper
data to govern us. Our main agri
cultural plants are divided into
three classes: lime, potash and
silica plants. These different classes
take from the soil different ele
ments, and different quantities of
the same elements. For instance,
tobacco extracts from the soil
large quantities of lhme, while
beets and turnips take very lit
tle. Both wheat and tobacco
require lime, but in unequal quan
tities ; wheat only 6 per cent.,
whilst tobacco takes up 43 per
cent. of its ash ingredients.
Tobacco, which is a lime plant,
and corn, which is a potash plant,
both take up potash; but in une
qual quantities: tobacco only 25
per cent., whilst the ash of the
corn-stalk contains 71 per cent.
Now the principle to be carried out
in a rotation system is to have such
a succession of these different
classes of plants, as to rest the soil
as it were and save it from too
great a drain upon any one ele
ment, and thus prevent exhaustion.
Thus, to commence with a potash
plant, say turnips, beets, potatoes
or corn. This should be followed
by a silica plant, say wheat, oats,
barley or rye, and this to be suc
ceeded by a lime plant, viz : clover,
peas, or lucerne, or tobacco. A
soil may be so constituted as to
produce a very good yield of one
crop, and a very poor ~one of ano
ther, by reason of its deficiency
in some one element needed for
one of them. A soil deficient in
lime, but abounding in potash and
phosphoric acid, will produce a good
crop of turnips or potatoes, but a
poor one of tobacco. A heavy
clay soil is well adapted to wheat,
but unsuited for tobacco; whilst a
light gray is best suited for tobacco,
but unfit for wheat. The soil is
a very complex affair-requiring
much experience, observation and
study to understand it thoroughly.

We know of at least one farmer
in South Carolina who intends
this winter to enjoy home-made
I sausages whether they be "stuffed
up in - or set down in dabs."
In a letter of the 18th September
"In June last I planted fourteen
acres of speckled peas, and turned
my hogs in upon them last Friday.
Thirteen of them are fine porkers,
and four shy, wild bucks ; these
last I will sell on the hoof. I am
feeding about a bushel of corn in
the ear daily, besides all the slops
with a little bran mixed and al
lowed to sour; occasionally a
sprinkling of sulphur is added."
We are satisfied a majority of
the farmers of South Carolina
might do as well as this one with
hogs, and yet how few there are
that do. Let us calculate the cost
of his meat.
Since those shoats were weaned
last spring, say six months ago,
they have cost the trouble of call
ing every afternoon from the
range, and a half peck of corn ; or
say twenty-five bushels of corn
during the time, and we know
they did not cost that much. Then
there was the pea crop from four
teen acres, worth as much as the
twenty-five bushels of corn ; for
the vines and refuse left on the
ground will repay for seed and
cultivation. Then for forty days,
we will say, these hogs will receive
daily three pecks of corn and a
half bushel of bran, (slops cost
nothing,) or say thirty bushels of
corn and five dollars worth of
bran. The aggregate cost then
will be eighty bushels of corn at
seventy-five cents per bushel, (for
that has been about the cost of
corn to merchants, the farmer who
had to buy paying them ninety
cents to one dollar cash, our
friend raised his,) or sixty dol
lars for corn and five dollars
for bran, or sixty-five dollars for
the feed ; the manure will remun
erate for the attention. The four
wild hogs will sell at the expira
tion of the forty days for twelve
dollars each, and one of the thir
teen will sell for seventeen dollars;
these five will return the expendii
But we will say the seventeen
pigs had to be bought at weaning
time, and cost $4 each, or $68.
The four choice2t of the twelve
remaining bogs will sell for $17
each, or $68, and hence our friend
nets up a clear gain of eight fatted
hogs, weigh we will say 170 pounds
net. He has but six in family ; a
hog to the head is sufficient.
Hence he may sell two more and
buy his groceries. Is this not good
reasoning? Any lying about these
igures ?-D. Wyatt Aili:en, in .News

The Commissioner of Agriculture, in his
report for the year 1875, speaks as follows:
"There can be no doubt of the general
adulteration of all malt liquors. In England
and other countries, where heavy penalties
are imposed, and an increasing vigilance
practiced to detect and punish such frauds,
by a system of inspection of all malt liquors
manufactured before exposed to sale, the
practice is very common. How much more
in this country, where there are no laws on
the subject, ad no officer to carefully ana
lyze the products of the brewery? Some
years ago, Professor Mapes, of New York,
analyzed the beer from a dozen different
breweries, and all were found adulterated
with noxious substances. It is said that the
sale of drugs to brewers is a profitable part
of the trade. This is perfectly infamous.
Cocculus indicu's, (fish-berry,) nux vomica,
(dog-button, from which strychnine is ob
tained,) are some of the delectable substan ces
found in beer! These are potent poisons,
and the brewer found using them should be
droned at once in one of his owni vats.
The British Parliament passed a law to pre
vent this nefarious business. The following
is an extract: 'No druggist, vender of or
dealer in drugs, or chemist, or any other
person, shall sell or deliver to any licensed
brewer, dealer in or retailer of beer, knowving
them to be such, or shall sell or deliver to
any person on account of, or in trust for, any
such' brewer, dealer or retailer, any liquor
called by the name of or sold for coloring,
from whatever material the same may be
made; or any material or preparation other
than unground brown malt, for the darken
ing the color of worts beer, or any molasses,
vitriol, honey, quassia, coccolus indicus,
grains of paradise, Guinea pepper, or opium,
or any extract or preparation of molasses, or
any article or preparation to be used in worts
beer for or as a substitute for malt or hops;
and if any druggist shall offend in any of these
particulars. such preparation, &c., shall be
forfeited, and may be seized by any officer of
excise, and the person so offending shall for
feit five hundred pounds.'
"Under this law, very many druggists and
brewers were brought to grief, and yet the
practice continues. Unless the American
public are ready to admit the immaculate
purity and innocence of American brewers,
they must be content, while drinking their
beer, to cherish the belief that they arc at the
same time guzzling some narcotic poison or
damaging medicine. In view of the unpre
cedented growth of the barley crop; of the
great increase of the number of malsters and
brewers; of the vast unknown quantities of
beer that are drunk in every city and almost
every town on the continent, it is the dictate
of sound wisdom that the attention of legis
lators should be called to the subject of the
adulteration of our malt liquors, and severe
penalties should be inflicted as a preventive."

1. SEMI-ANNUAL PLAN.-The year is (livid

ed by a vacation of 6 weeks. New pupils
can be classitied as well one session as the
other. This plan has great advantages, too
numerous for our space.
2. ONE-STUDY FEATURE.-Instead of seve
ral difficult subjects at once, each pupil
pursues one leading study at a time, thus
enjoying the benefits, and forming the hab
it, of concentrated attention. The follow
ing paragraph will explain the plan.
The Regular College Course embraces 4
departments, each containing 6 sessional
studies. Each session is divided into 4 sec
tions of 5 weeks. The 1st section is devoted
to Belles-Lettres; the 2d,to Natural Science;
the 3d, to Mathematics; the 4th, to Latin.
Each pupil has 3 recitations a day in her
appropriate department study, 1 in the cor
responding elementary branch, and 1 in
spelling. This system is developing new
advantages almost every day.
3. PREMIUM.--Every pupil whose two ses
sional reports average 75 or more is entitled
to a discount of?10 to 50 per cent. from her
next session's regular tuition.
