Five Bales to the Acre.
Mr. T. C. Wartheo, a thrifty planter
living near Sandcrsvillo, (Ja., has man
aged to raise five bales of cottou to the
acre, and thus explains bow be did it.
"Tbc soil is sandy, with clay subsoil,
lias been in cultivation for sixty or
eighty years, I suppose. About half of
tho acre was an old dung-hill, tho other
half very poor before manuring. The
guano I used was Kcttlcwell's A. A.,
or l'hospho Peruvian, 1,100 pounds;
raw pine stra.v from the wood, b'O ox
cart loads ; grc;n cotton seed, 00 bushols;
stable manure, well rotted, 400 bushels.
The pino strnw, cotton seel and stable
manure I hauled out in Jnnuaay, and
strewed broadcast over the laud , thou
turned under with a two-horse plough,
breaking oi; ht inches deep. Then with
a sixteen inch scooter ruu in tho two
horse furrow, breaking from five to
seven inches ; in the whole thirteen to
fifteen inches deep. I then followed in
the scooter furrow with the guano or
subsoil furrow, so on, till completed. In
February I repeated the breaking in
the same manner, leaving off mauuring.
In March., the same again, breaking
caeb time crosswise, or in opposite direc
tion. In April, I harrowed the laud
I twice, to level the soil and d -troy the
youug vegetation. Then 1 checked off
my rows thsee feet each way, with a
small bulltouguc plough, and on the
13th day of May I planted my cotton
seed in the hill, six or eight seed, drop
pod by hand and covered with the foot;
the seed wheu covered being on n level.
The t-ecd were the "Cluster Cotton"
variety. I purchased them from IUvid
Dickson, Esq., Oxford, Georgia, to
whom I must confess I am indebted for
my tuccess, to acertainexte.it. The
t?ced, 1 am confident, wero half the
buttle. The cotton was thincd to one
stalk to the hill iu June, with exception
of the outside rows, iu which I left two
stalks. Theu I ploughed with twenty
four-inch sweep "Dickson's," shallow,
one fin row to the row, and about eight
days alterward 1 repeated the same,
running <>:ie furrow to the row, just
scraping tho earth enough to destroy
the young weeds and gras*. Did not
u-e a hoe in it, iu order to avoid sinking
the cotton, in fact, had no use for any.
as the cottou grew so fast the shade
