EDITOR SOUTHERN CULTIVATOR.
-There are more ways for far
mers to economize thdn by eating
corn bread and wearing homespun
clothing. In this country labor is
the dearest factor in farming.
Therefore, horse-power should be
used as much as practicable.
Land being cheaper in many local
ities Uhan anything elso, that sys
tem of farming should be followed
that utilizes the most land, and
least labor, implements,&c. Fenc
ing in crops is often practiced,
where fencing in stock would be
cheaper. Poor crops are very
nearly as expensive to make as
good ones. Therefore, as a gene.
ral thing, it pays to make as large
crops as drainage, manure, im
proved implements, good work,
stock, good seeds, and thorough
cultivation will produce.
It does not pay to let your soil
deteriorate and finally become ex
bausted. It requires more labor
to make a crop on a thin soil than
on a rich one. The loss in pro.
duce while your soil is becoming
exhausted, is enough to buy three
such farms. Renters are no ex
ceptions to this rule, if they rent
for long enough periods. A great
portion is applicable to short pe.
riods; all of it when the farm iE
in a high state of cultivation. It
never pays to pasture any cultiva
ted crop. The objections are, cost
of cross fences, waste of produce
loss or idleness of the soil, and
damage to the soil by trampina
of stock. Land can be too dear tc
even have pastures of the grasses
practice soiling instead, with othei
products. Pasture grasses. thai
do not manure, waste and decay
like cultivated crops that are uo1
gathered at the proper time. Far
thermore, the soil becomes corn
pact and does not tram~p so badly
it pays well to pr otect stock froa:
in clement weather. The food savy
ed in a few years would put ni
commodious buildings. It als(
pays well to keep stock in gooc
flesh. They pay for food by
growth. The saving of food by
inferior and scant feed is over
balanced by loss of growth, stunt
ed stock, and increase of feed re
quisite to restore fiesh or to fatten
As Josh Billings says, "whet
ui start down hill u find every.
thing greased for the occashun.'
But going up hill, you have to fur
nish the ''ile" yourself. It pays
well to have good stock when you
have food to correspond. It takeE
less food for a given amount of
growth. More flesh in proportion
to the less valuable horns, bones
and entrails. In the matter of food
for man and beast, there is much
room for reform. The cost of
food for man comes in the follow
ing ratio: fruit. vegetables, bread
and meat. For stock, pasture,
hay, oats, peas and corn.
They should be used in propor.
to requirements of flesh, muscle,
heat and fat. For stock, they are
adapted in the ratio indicated.
Perhaps it is very near true of hu
Sell for cash. Buy the same
way. Do not rush into mar

is a medium between. Be satis

raise produce for which there
is a market at home-do not drib
bis it out. But sell in bulk to your
merchant, for cash. IDo not be too
parsimonious when you get be
hind in cultivating or gathering
your crop, to pay good prices for

It is now conceded that the free

ASHES AND BONES.
A correspondent of the German
town Telegraph writes as follows
In 1866 1 had a worn farm wbic
needed renovation, and not beinj
able to procure manure enough b.
ordinary farming, I bought leache
ashes. They cost, delivered tw
and a-half miles from home, tweE
ty-five cents per bushel. Iapplie
them at the time of seeding, a
the rate of one hundred and fift;
bushels to the acre, in connectio
with other manure, the whole b
ing well harrowed in. This pra
tice was continued for ten yeari
having used in that time sever
teen thousand bushels.' My so
was a hard gravel, and in som
cases hard clay loam. The ashe
produced both a mechanical an
chemical effect on the soil. The
made the soil finer, and in m;
opinion eet at liberty latent plan
food by breaking down the mii
erals in the soil ; it was darker i
color after the application. Tb
effect was to largely increase tb
hay crop. As this course was bi
gan before the high price of ha
in 1870-71, it proved veiy profi
able. Hay then sold at $30 pe
ton at the barn, twenty tons bein
taken from seven acres in the la
ter year at a single cutting. Whe
the crop showed signs of failui
we plowed and seeded with ash(
and manure as before, but wit
hardly as good results as at firs
It took more ashes for the secon
than for the first application I
produce the same amount of ha:
This is the general verdict of tho!
who have used them extensivel:
The ashes induced the growth i
red clover, which continued froi
year to year. We cut our fiel(
twice in a season, often gettin
more at the second than at tl
first cutting. Our fields came I

productiveness. We had conti:

We have taken bone, using half

the large farmers in Salisbur
Mass., (a few miles from here
who formerly used large quan1
ties of ashes, have for years giv<
up their use and substituted bol
in place, with the very best su
cess. An Irishman who had wor
ed for one of them bought an o
run-out farm in a town two mil
away ; and surprised the nativ
considerably by buying a numb
of tons of bone-dust. They pr
dicted that it would never pay at
that they would look a long tin
at $50 before paying it for a t<
of bone. After several years' tri
I find on making inquiry that
has proved a successful and pa
ing experiment. And the be
farmers in that town are no
using large quantities of bone ai
feel that it pays them well. The
is no doubt but on lands whii
are properly grass lands, th
ashes and bones will be found be
eficial, and when they cani
bought at a reasonable price, the
use will be found profitable.

- Th BEER.
ThGommissioner of Agriculture, in his
d report for the year 1875, speaks as follows:
"There can be no doubt of the general
e8 adulteration of all malt liquors. In England
e8 and other countries, where heavy penalties
are imposed, and an increasing vigilance
r practiced to detect and punish such frauds,
by a system of inspection of all malt liquors
- manufactured before exposed to sale, the
d practice is very common. How much more
in this country, where there are no laws on
e the subject, and no officer to carefully ana
lyze the products of the brewery ? Some
)a years ago, Professor Mapes, of New York,
l analyzed the beer from a dozen different
breweries, and all were found adulterated
it, with noxious substances. [t is said that the
sale of drugs to brewers is a profitable part
Y- of the trade. This is perfectly infamous.
Cocculus indicus, (fish-berry,) nux vomica,
(dog-button, from which strychnine is ob
w tained,) are some of the delectabe substances
found in lVecr! These are potent poisons,
d and the brewer found using them should be
drow.ned at once in one of his owna vats.
e Trhe B3ritish Parliament passed a law to pre
b vent :his nefarious business. The following
is an extract: 'No druggist, vender of or
t dealer in drugs, or chemist, or any other
person, shall sell or deliver to any licene%d
3-brewer, dealer in or retailer of beer, knowing
e them to be such, or shall sell or deliver to
.any person on account of,or in trust for, any
irsuch 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,
r- or any extract or preparation of molasses, or
any article or preparation to be used in worts
Dbeer for or as a substitute for malt or hops;
dand if any druggist shall offend in any of these
particulars, such preparation, &e., shall be
a- forfeited, and may be seized by any officer of
excise, and the person so offending shall for
D feit five hundred pounds.'
"Under this law, very many druggists and
brewers were brought to grief, and yet the
g p.ractice continues. Unless the American
public are ready to admit the immaculate
purity and innocence of American brewers,
they moust be content, while drinking their
beer, to cherish the belief that they are 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
g 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."

HOPE FOR ALL!
Consumption is generally supposed to be an
incurable disease. Why ? Because medical
men, who of all others should have been the last
to encourage such an uDphilosophical and dan
gerous assumption, have insisted upon and pro
pagated It with a persistency which seems al
most incredible in the light of science and of,
truth. We used the term 'dangerous'advisedly,.
for what cn be more depres8ing and injurious
to the consumptive than brooding over the idea
-founded solely upon the flat of his physician
that his malady is mortal, and that the utmost
that can be done for him is to render his exit
from this world as easy as possible. Such mel
ancholy and hopeless reflection a, this belief en
genders among consumptive patients, does as
much, if not more, to hasten their departure for
the land of shadows, as the tubercles in their
lungs. Away with such a hopeless theory.
Happily the GREAT MASTERS OF MEDICIE
have entered their protest against it and confuted
by the jmost positive testimony the monstrous
fallacy. Dingerous as pulmonary phthisis is,
its terrible ravages may be stayed and the lungs
restored to a sound condition even after suppu
ration has taken place. Every experienced sur
geon knows that post mortem examinations of
aged persons who have died in the ordioary
course of nature have repeatedly disclosed the
traces of pulmonary ulcers entirely cicatrized.
The argument, therefore, against the possibility
of healing a pulmonary abscess because the im
mediate seat of the disease cannot be reached,
has not a leg to staud upon. Over fifty instances
of the discovery of cicatrized ulcers in the lungs
have been recorded by the medical faculty of
Paris, and such eminent authorities as Revinus,
Malphighi, Du Haen and scores of others, French,
English and German, might easily be cited to
prove their certain curabilitr.
To treat any malady rationally its character
ard morbid influence must be known. The dis%
secting knife has disclosed all the internal char
acteristics of consumption. We know that tu
bercles in the lungs vary in size from granules
smaller than a pin's head to that of a large bean.
These develop into open ulcers technically
known as vomical which afterwards spread over
a surface several inches in diameter. Their sacs
are filled with a yellow, greenish. grayish matter
generally very oftensive. The membrane itself
is greatly inflamed, and the ends of the pulmona
ry artery and vein connecting with the diseased
parts are clogged with vitiated and purulent
mucus. Death must ensue either from suffoca
tion or hemorrhage if speedy relief is not obtain
ed. It is obvious that something is required
which wi! enable the sufrerer to raise and eject
the poison rankling in his lungs, and choking
the air passages, and which will also allay the
grievous irritation of the inflamed parts. No
preparation known to materia medica accom
plishes this double object so effectually and speed
ily as HOLLQWAY'S CouGH CURE AND LUNG
$SAM. That incomparable remedy loosens
and liquifies the poisonous and fmtid accumula
tions in the lungs and bronchi, subdues with
wonderful rapidity the inflammation of the dis
eased parts, and prevents the possibility of hem
orrhage. At the same time it tones and strength
ens the muscles of the throat and enables them
to throw off the vitiated matter without strain
ing. The transcendent merit. of HOLLOWAY'S
COUGH CURS AND LUNd BALSAM is the thor
oughness with which it does its work. Its im
mense superiority to the multitude of officinal
and proprietary medicines, designed for a simi
lar purpose, which have preceded it, lies in the
fact that it is an ABsOLUTE ERADICANT of pul
monary and throat diseases, while they at the
best were merely palliations. It is not alone
that the 11reparation dislodges the pulmonic
virus, it possesses balsamic properties peculiarly
adapted to soothe the lacerated lung, while by
its tonic operations it greatly facilitates and has
tens the healing process. As apreventive Hot
LOwAY'S COUGH CURE AND LUNGBALSAMiS
equally efficacious. Coughs, especially the dry
hacking coughs which are so common, are terri
bly fruitful sources of consumption. The suf
ferer at first has a feeling of rawness in the
throat, tightness across the chest, then danger
ous inflammation sets in, which may give rise to
hemorrbage or the formation of vomical, if it is
not speedily checked and the cough loosened.
HOLLOWAY'S COUGH CURE AND LUNG BL.&sAM
accomplishes this with a degree of promptitude
and certainty which astonishes the patient. No
type of throat, lung or bronchial disturbance
can resist its curative influence. It overcomes
the most obstinate forms of this class of disor
ders. and breaks up at once the most violent
paroxysms of coughing. All its ingredieats are
purely vegetable. Some of them are culled from
sources entirely new "to pharmacy, and all are
possessed of properties of marvelous remedial
efmcacy. The unsolicited testimonials which its
proprietors have been constantly receiving since

This Sarsaparillaisacombinlation of
drake,Yellow Dlock-with the Iodides
of Potassium and Iron, and is the
most efficacious medicine yet known
for the diseases it is intended to cure.
Its ingredients are so skilfully
combined that the full alterative
effect of each is assured, and while
it is so mild as to be harmless even
to children, it is still so effectual as
to purge out from the system those
impurities and corruptions which
develop into loathsome disease.
The reputation it enjoys is derived
from its cures, and te confidence
which prominent physicians all over
the country repose in it proves their
experience of its usefulness.
Certificates attesting its virtues
have accumulated, and are con
stantly being received, and as many
of these cases are publicly known,
they furnish convincing evidence of
the superiority of this Sarsaparilla
over every other alterative medicine.
So generally is its superiority to any
other medicine known that we need
do no more than to assure the public
that the best qualities it has ever
possessed are strictly maintained.
