Land upon which the oats are to be
own should be broken with a two
orse plow just as early as the soil can
e turned and the vegetable matter
vell covered up. About the 10th of
September, after the manure has been
Iistl ibuted over the surface, we sow
the oats at an average of two bushels
to the acre, and harrow them in nicely
and well. Stable manure and cotton
seed are here found a most excellent
fertilizer, and1 we do not know that we
can commend anything better. The
cotton seed are crushed before being
applied, to prevent germination.
Treated in this way any ordinary farm
should average thirty-live bushels of
oats to the acre, and realize one hun
dred per cent. on the cost, if the crop
sell at fort.y cents per bushel.
Oats cannot be raised with uniform
success if slovenly planted. The land,
in our opinion, should be thoroughly
prepared and the seed del)sited upon
a mellow, fertile bed, thoroughly pul
verized. It may be that we can take
a Disc harrow and go over much more
ground and leave it in fair shape as to
appearances, but we doubt if the suc

lu this section a Sne corn crop was e
grown in the year 1876; for live years a
after that season the dry weoather. of r
duly cut off the corn crop to less than a
half. The farmers bogan to despair of p
growing on old upland corn in suffi
cient quantity to feed the farm stock. r
in the fall of 1881 an tinprecedentedly I
large crop of Red rust-proof oats were a
sown and the season was favorable for t
fall oats, so the farmers harvested an c
enormous oats crop in May, 1882. t
Most farmers thought they had at last i
hit upon the plan of raising grain
crops for stock, as the yield of oats
that season per acre was in many cases
fully fve timea greater than corn and
the cost of growing an acre in oats
was much less thau growing an acre in
corn. But since the year 1882 the oats
crop has been a complete failure in
Monroe county, A few years since a
gentleman from Hanco.k conuty spent
a night with the writer. After supper
the subject of growing oats came up,
and this gentleman remarked that Mr.
W. J. Northen, of Hancock, had been
heard to say that he had kept an accu
rate account of the different farm
products raised or grown on his farm,
and that he had realized more clear
money on sheep than on any other
farm product; and that next to sheep
he had realized more clear profit from
As the season is near at. hand when
farmers sow fall oats it occurred to
the writer that the readers of the Cul
tivator would be pleased to hear from
Mr: W. J. Northen on the subject of
oats raising. Does Mr. Northen sow
Red rust-proof oats or has he found
some variety less likely to be killed by
hard winters? A short time since I
received a letter from Mr. John H.
Dent, of Cherokee, Ga., and lie sug
gested that I should write an article
on eats for the Cultivator. Mr. Dent
says in his section of Georgia the Red
rust-proof oats are a failure as they
are too liable to be killed by cold win..
tere. IIe said for a numlier of vears
he was enthused on the subject of Retd
rust-proof oats, but he has now aban
doned them. He thinks they are suit
ed for a more tropical climate where
the winters are iltd and the springs
Mr. Dent says: "The oats I want
Is a hardy variety that stands cold and
grows tall, for I value straw as much
as the grain. I want long straw so
that I can cut high and have a heavy
stubble to turn under for the benefit I
of the land." This, I presumne, is the t
variety that most farmers are after. t
Let us hear from you, Mr. Editor, on i
this question. For a number of years
an oats club in Baldwin county has I
been experimenting in growing large
crops of oats, but I uc not know what
variety Is sown. Some large yields
have been published as grown by men
in that section. In 1882, Mr. V. F.
Dewberry, who is a neighbor of mine,
had a field of eight acres that he
thought made 100 bushels per acre; lie
did not, however, measure themt. Dr.
Moss, of Monroe, made 137 bushels
that year on an acre. Some six or
eight years ago, Mr. Jim Rose, of
Upson county, made 138 bushels p;er
acre on a plat of eight acres. Three
years ago the writer made sixty-four
bushels ied rust-proof oats on an acre
of land that was only moderately good
land; but in 1877 the writer sowed on
the 10th day of August oats in a field
of tin gray land he had in cotton at
the last plowing lhe gave his cotton.
The yield was twenty bushels per acre,
and as the cost of the crop was simph)l
whait it cost to cut them thev tdid niot
cost to lay them dlown at the 'crib over
five cents per bushel.
Bunt on the following year lie sowved
again at the last pilowinig or cotton,
but August and Septenmber wer~e very
hot and dry so that the oats were badl'y
killed by heat. Of all the varieties of
oats sowvn in this section, none have
yielded such large crops as the Recd
rust-proof; btt they have become too l
uncertain a crop to rely on.
Does the editor know anything; abouti
the "Tonm Smith" oats? 'It is -qid of
thenm that they growv tall on poor lantd I
and yield well. If such is the faict.,
and they are rust-proof, it would be <
well for the farme.is to give them a C
trial., In the August number of the t
Cultivator, for the year 1884, page 2i>7, J
Bill Arp says seedi oats and wheat I
ought to come from south of the sec-t
tion in which they are sown. Let the
farmers also hear from the editor on I
this subject. lias lie tried the plan of<
sowing Oats fromi more southern blti
tuide, and If so, what wvas the result ? (
One of my neighbors, Mr. A. C. Jack
son, brought somae oats from Macon
county, kniowni In that section as the I
S-Chapman" oats, because Mr. William I
>Ai~mani, of D)ooly, first brought (
in that section. rThey' are, how- I
the same as the "Burt" oats. I
inned one bushel of this variety of <
and sowed them the 1st of March;
'nsed acid phosphate on them at the I
Tte of-200 poun11ds perCt acre. TVhe oats e
grow- tall but the gralin was very light. e
I shall not sowv them again. Men f
differ In regard to the time to sow RIed
rust-proof oats. Capt. McMullin, of f
Monroe, who was a very successful t
oats grower, saidl from the 20th of
September to the 10 of October was (
thd proper- time to seed that variet y of I
oats. Mr. Thomas Mat'shtall, of M on-- t
roe, who is also a successful oats C
grower, prefers to begin sowing tihe 5
1tof December and sow until e
Christmas. My observation is that t
early sown oats are heavier than late a
sown, If cotton seed wouhl atdmit of v'
sowing on land the last week in Soe ,
tensber without coming up, I would
always sow at that time; but to use
cotton seed on eats, a farmer has to
wait until the last of Novemnber., which
Is entirely too late to sow that variety a
of oats. In Coweta county, someh
eight or ten years ago, the farmers a
sowed oats in their corni and cotton 'l
fields at the last working, antd the
yield on some occasions was entor- v
mousn. About the same tiane Rome v
very larqo yields were repor-tedi from r~
Bonth U..arolIna by sowing In cotton t
and corn latIds at the last working.

WAeHIKOTON, October 20- A triead
cf Senator Butler, of South Carolina,
said to-dav: "It is true, as the WVorlcd
has stated, that Senator Butler has
stopped going to the State Department
and it is also true that his colleague
does not'inteud to go there any more.
The exact reasons have not been stated
but Senator Butler was not offended
with the Secretary of State because he
did not promote his son to the Consu
late of Marseilles. It would have been
natural for Mr. Bayard to have paid
Mr. Butler the courtesy of promoting
his son, but the fact that he did not,
would not have been a cause for griev
ance on the part of Mr. Butler. The
reason why Mr. Butler has stopped
going to the State Department is be
cause Mr. Bayard treated him with
''One day hc called on him to pro
sent the claims of a gentleman for the
Venezuelan mission. As he entered
Mr. Bayard's room he said:
"'Are you going to give my man the
mission that I wrote ytu about?'
" 'No, no, no,' said Mr. Bayard, al
most without turning his head. He
then began an attack upon Senator
Butler on account of the Morgan ap
pointrnent. Mr. Butler repudiated all
responsibility for that appointment.
lie said that he had carried this respon
sibility before the public, and had said
nothing, but that no one knew better
than Mr. Bayard that he was in no way
responsible for Morgan. He had not
even asked to have him appointed
Mr. Bayard's manner was so oficusive
and his charge so unjust that the South
Carolina Senator became very angry.
lie drew himself up very stiffly and
started to go. Mr. Bayard, to concili
ate him, then began to ask him about
the case of the man ho had presented
for the Venezuelan mission, but Mr.
Butler brusquely declined to say
another word on the subject, and left.
"Two days after this interview Sen
ator Butler's candidate was appointed.
Butler has not gone to the State De
partinent since then, and will not so
long as Mr. Bayard is there. The
South Carolina Senator, if lie were
asked about this matter to-day, would
disclaim having ony grievance against
the Secretary. lie simply came to the
conclusion that he would not have
anlything to do with him. Senator
Wade Ilampton dropped Mr. Bayard's
acquaintance for another reason. lie
made a request of the Secretarv to
transfer a consular friend of his to
another point. If this request had
been refused Mr. IIampton would not
have complained, but the Secretary
treated him with great rudeness, and
made no answer to his request."
The stories that some of the Sena
tors tell of their treatment at the
hands of the Secretary almost sur
pass belief. The gratuitous rude
ness shown by Mr. Bayard to his old
collcagues is hard to understand. Sen
ator ?ePherson, of New Jersey, called
up.on him the other day, and the first
thing Mr. Bayard said to him, before
the Senator had opened his mouth,
was: "Be brief, sir; my time is val
uable," as if the Senator were a des.
perate office-seeker, who was making
an unwarrantable trespass upon his
attention. Gov. Manning, one of the
leading men of South Carolina, a man
of high social. posit,ion, early in the
hiistoryv of the Administration wi'ote
letters to lie President and the Secr
tary of State, indicating a desire to go
abroad. The President wrote him a
veryv polite note, saying that the mat
ter' had beeni referred to the State
1 )epartmeunt. Mr. Bayar'd n'ever an
swer'ed the Governor's letter', alhiough
lhe had been a guest in his house in
South Cairolina, and was under nutm
bei'less obligations of' cour'tesv to him.
Theire is niot a Demiocr'atic~ Senator
herec who has not had ani experience of
a disagr'eeable chai'acter' with the Secre
tar'y of State. Mr. Bayard issupposed1
to be planniing a brilliant foi'eigni pol
icy, aind has adlvaniced views upon01 the
subject of the Nicaraguan Canal.
WVhatever lie may propose, lie may be
certain that it will be killed in the
Senate, as lie has lost his hold on all
his fr'iends thiei'e. lie has, by his
course this summer01, uteiv yd(estrIoyedl
all possibility of his having any sup
por,'t friom Congiress on any foi'eign
pohcy3 that lhe may have on hand. lie
will be practically reduced to the posi

A Lawsuit Over Cuilbreath's Estate:
(hrom the 7sdgefield (:hronicle. )
Last Friday an interesting case w
, argued before Judge Roath, in t
s Probate Court in this village, the fac
? being us follows: Dr. W. A. Culbrea
t liad made application for letters
adiministration on the estate of i
brother, 0. T. Culbreath, claimii
that Mrs. F annie Culbreath, the wido
of 0. T. Culbreath, had waivel hl
right to administer. Mrs. Culbrea
denied that she had waived her rig
or consented for Dr. Culbreath to a
? minister. She claimed that the pro
Sorty belonged to her children, and s
regarded it as her (lty" to adininistt
on the estate f'or their becefit. I)
Culbreat I presented two papers, oi
signed by Mrs. Culbreath, the oth
by her brother, Dr. Prescott, at
claimed that the papers gave him tl
right to adninister on the estate. TI
paper signed by Mrs. Culbreath simp
waived her own interest in the pro
erty, and she 'said that if the papc
meant atnything more than this the
she was deceived as to its purpot
when she signed it. The question ti
to who should administer was argue
at some length by Mr. J. C. Sheppar(
representing Mrs. Culbreath, and M
Ernest Gary, representing Dr. Cu
breath. Judge Roath rendered h
decree in favor of A1rs. F'anie P. Cu
breath, granting the letters of admit
istratioti to her.
