Uncle Sam's Farm or
Gen. R. E. Lee's 2?
One of the most famous farms in
the United States is being conducted
by Unole Sam, a genuine horny-hand
ed farmer, on a portion of the historio
estate formerly the home of Gen.
Robert E. Lee. Two hundred acres
are set apart for farming operations,
the remainder of the estate being the
National Military Cemetery, where are
buried 16,000 Union soldiers, who
lost their lives during the war be
tween tho States. A few of the Custi.s
and Lee ancestors arc also buried in
an obscure portion of Arlington.
Unole Sam is not engaged in farming
for his own profit, but for the benctit
of the farmers of tho entire country,
who will be giv^n thc rosults of the
most expert agriculturists in thc
country, who aro in the employ of
the Government and who manage tho
For moro than a year laborers have
been engaged in clearing the land and
preparing it for crops. Modern build
ings are in course of construction and
within a short timo the farm will be
in full operation. All branches of
this important industry will be con
ducted at the Arlington farm. The fin
est nattle will be bred and a model dairy
will be in operatio'. Butter of the
best quality will be manufactured and
if it is possible to do so better grades
than are cow on the market will be
made. Breeding of superior wheat,
corn and oats will also be attempted.
Diseases of cattle will be studied.
New fruits will be introduced and
those already grown in this country
will be grown to perfection. Disea?oa
of pears, peaches, plums and otha*
fruit will be studied with a view to
stamping out the troublesome ail
ments of fruits and making fruit

expeoted and Secretary Wilson is tak
ing great pride in directing this work.
That portion of thc Lee estate which
has been set apart "or farming pur
poses is about the poorest piece of
land in this section of the country,
having been worn out. It was entirely
unfit for agricultural purposes and it
tras necessary to fertilize and improve
it. /The experts of the agricultural
department expect to demonstrate
that tho poorest land in the country
can be profitably utilised for success
ful farming operations. Gen. Lee's
?Grmer home is one of the most beau*
tiful spots in the v?oinity of thu Na-"
ttonal Capital. The mansion stands
OB the brow OT S ali!, which slopes
away half a mile to the Potomac, 200
feet below. The view from the porti
co of the old mansion has been famed
for a century. When Gen. Lafayetto
vasa guest at Arlington he pronoun
ced the prospect from the poroh ono
of tho most beautiful ho had over
looked upon. Since Gen. Lafayette's
visit the view has been cha ged* new
beauties being added, while some of
the old ones were destroyed by the
ravages of war. The completed Cap
itol, with its imposing dome, the sym
metrical Washington monument, the
beautiful Congressional Library and
other arohitootual features have taken
their places in the picture, while a
grove of majestic trees whioh graced
the slope below the house were utter
ly destroyed during the greatest civil
conflict ever waged. Arlington House
waB built in 1802 by George Wash
ington Custis, the son of John Park
Custis, whose widowed mother became
Mrs. Martha Washington. When
Col. John Parke Custis died, at the
siege of Yorktown, Gen. George
rvashingtou adopted as hid own tho
two children, George Washington,
Parke Custis and Eleanor Parke Cus
tis, who lived to be considered ooo of
the most beautiful women o? her day.
Thenceforward Custis was a member
of the Mount?Vernon household until
after tho death of Mrs. Washington
in 1802, when he removed to his Ar
lington estate. The portico of the
mansion, with its great Dorie columns,
was modelled after that of the Temple
of Theseus at Athens. At the rear
of the mansion ->re the original ser

war tho rooms of thc mansion
were stored with a rich and valuable
collection of mementos and memorials,
many of whi<?h wero brought from
Mount Vernon. They consisted of
portraits, pictures, silver table ware,
household furniture and ornaments.
Some of these aro now on exhibition
in the National Museum, while others
have been returned to their original
place at Mount Vernon. Mr. Custis
was a talented man and much of his
timo was employed io painting battle
scenes of thc Revolution. Tho old
well, from which Gen. Washington's
table was supplied with sparkling
water, has been preserved, and visi
tors to this historic place arc permit
ted to lower thc bucket and drink of
tho refreshing water. After the death
of George Washington Parko Custis,
Gen. Leo who married tho oistcr of
tl.t younger Custis,occupied thc estate.
Gen. Lee left Arlington April 22,
1861, to take tho field at the begin
ning of the civil war. After tho de
parture of Gen. Lee and 'his family
tho Federal troops took possession of
Arlington and the precious mementos
with which tho mansion was filled
were dispersed and many of them have
never been recovered. The homo of
Gen. Lee is now occupied by tho
superintendent of the grounds. In
the room on the left of the hall, for
merly tho main drawing room, is kept
a register in which visitors record
their names. With thc advent of the
Federal troops tho mansion was con
verted into headquarters for tho
officers and thc grounds into a camp.
As tho war progressed and tho wound
ed increased in number a hospital was
established. When other, cemetery
grounds no longer suffioed for tho
burial of the dead the level plateaus
and grassy slopes of Arlington were,
by order of Quartermaster Gen. Mcige,
devoted to the purpose of a military
cemetery. By the irony of fate the
first gravo prepared was for a Confed
erate prisoner. Before tho close of
the war tho property was sold for de
linquent taxes and thc Govcrnmeot
purobased it, paying$26,100. In 1877
George Washington Lee, heir under
the Custis will, instil ted suit to re
cover tho estate. He succeeded in
establishing his legal title to the
property, but was barred by the Unit
ed States Courts from further aotion
to seoure possession. The claim was
adjusted, however, to his satisfac
tion by the payment to him' by the
United States Government of $150,
000. George Washington Parke Cus
tis and his wife are buried at Arling
ton. A marble shaft marks their
graves, whioh are in a retired spot
near the limit of the southwestern
plateau. Gen. Lee and Mary Custis
wero married in tho drawing room of
Arlington, where visitors to-day regis
ter thoir names. Many of the leading
Federal generals are buried at Arling
ton, and one of the most interesting
spots io this historio place is a mons
mont to tho unknown dead. Their
names, their friends, and their homos
w>re all unknown. Tho simple and

Soldiers aro buried at Arlington
every day. By far the most interest
ing seotion of the cemotery is looatcd
on ibo southwestern slope, lt is
where are buried the "boya in blue"
from the North, South, East and
West, who gave their lives to their
oountry during the Spanish ww, whoo
the South attested its,loyalty to the
Government and oemonted the Union
wita blood shed on the battlefields of
Cuba and made the nation a woild
power. No other oountry on tho
globe can boast of auch an historio
farm. A short distance from the
graves of dead Confederate prisoners
and Fedeal officers and of the descen
dants of those who wore tho blue and
the grey can be heard the busy far
mers at their labors, the result of
whioh will be given to all alike. It is !
the hope- and wish of the Secretary
of Agriculture that North and South,
East and Wost, will benefit from the
work being carried on within tho con
duce of the historio estate which hts
figured so largely in tho nation's des
tiny.--Nows and Courier.

Justice Jones' Ont Crop.
finn yield? of oats thia year have been
noted recently io this correspondence.
In this connection the result of an
experiment made by Mr. Geo. \V~.
Jones, manager of Judge Ira B.
Jone's farms, is weli worth mention
ing. Judge Jones made a practical
test of a theory in regard to oat plant
ing that Col. Redding, of the Georgia
experiment station, bas been exploit
ing for several years, a leading feature
of whioh is the non-covering of the
seed by ploughing or barrowiog, as is
usually done. For tho purpose of the
experiment Mr. Jones selected ten
acres pf very oridinary upland. The
ground was first broken up with
ploughs and then Harrowed. The
breaking was done diagonally across
tho terraces and the harrowing parallel
with them. Then, ?vith a four-inch
grab, furrows eighteen incb^o apart
were run, along with the terraces,
throughout thc field. Thus prepared,
seventeen bushels of oats were sown
broadcast over the ten acres. Noth
ing whatever was done to cover the
seed. Tho preparation of tho soil
and tho sowing were done in the
month of October. Judge Jones
himself was sceptical as to results,
but his manager was so confident ti
success that he volunteered to pay
all expenses in-case thc experiment
proved to be a failure.
Some two or three weeks ago tho
oats on the land were cut and harvest
ed; and, notwithstanding the fact
that this has beeu a very unfavorable
year for small, grain, the yield turned
out to bc 523 dozen bundles. The
total expense, cost of seed, ploughing,
harrowing and harvesting, was $39.85,
leaving, at present price of oats, a net
profit of over ten dollars per aero. No
fertilizers of any kind were used.
Similar land planted in the ordinary
way did not make a third as much.
One of the advantages of the fur
rows referred to was tho protection
they afforded the oats from the dam
aging effects of freezes. Every freeze,
io fact, Judgo Jones says, instead of
doing injury, acted as a "working" to
tho crop.-News and Courier.
Cotton and the Negro.
Now Orleans, La., Juno 26.-The
Chroniclo says: "It is notorious
that nearly all tho cotton ?B the pro
duct of negro labor now, as it was in
the days of slavery. If it is true,
then, as the Southern whites allege,
that tho employment of negroes are
now more diversified than they for
merly were, the inference regarding
their comparative efficiency as free
men is obvious."
The Chronicle is wrong in its facts
and mistaken in its conclusion, as you j
will find, if you turn to the United
States census or inquire of the United
States department of agriculture.
The biggeBt cotton produoing coun
ty of the South is Williamson County,
Texas, whioh produced 89,237 baleo,
according to the oensus. Its popula
tion ls 33,755 white and 4,392 ne

per cent of its farm kbor and raise less

ond biggest cotton pro. nc .* is Ellis
County, also in Texas, with 86,639
bales; population, 42,216 whites, 4,841
negroes. The negroes furnish 12 per
cent of the farm labor and shout the
same,percentage of the cotton orop.
And so on down the list.
Of the nineteen biggest cotton
Counties in the South sixteen aro
overwhelmingly white and nearly all
the farm work is done by whites.
This tendency has been marked for
years and the production of cotton in
most ot the Southern States is shift
ing away from the black belt to the
The increase io the ootton produc
tion of tho South in the last two do
cades is due mainly to tho labor of
tho whites. The crop of ante bellum
days was tho produot almost wholly
of negro labor. The Chronicle is
mistaken in supposing this to be tho
case toda j. The negro Counties gen
erally produoe less cotton than in
slavery days.-Chicago Chronicle.

Colton Mil! Loss.
Spartaoburg, June '?'i.-Thc direc
tors of the Cliftou mills have issued a
ciroular to the stockholders betting
forth the losses and present condition
at these mill towns in concise, accu
rate manner. The loss on mills Nos.
1 and 2 is estimated at $300,000, and
when these factories are again put in
shape for operation, the company will
have 50,000 spindles and necessary
loom accompaniment at work. At
Mill No. 2 four warehouses, along
with 1,794 bales of cotton were total
ly destroyed. Sixty cottagca and a
number of lives were also lost at this
mill. An inspection of tho property
of the Clifton company entire, on
Paoolet river as it now stands, places
au estimate of its value at $1,000,000
by the directora. This will provena
solid basis on which to reestablish the
mills. About 9,000 bales of cotton
were also saved from the flood and no
manufactured goods lost; so with
quick assets in hand to convert into
cash, au amount moro than sufficient
to cover all indebtedness is realized.
At a recent meeting of tho direc
tors of the D. E. Converse Co.-the
Glendale mills-the coming semi an
nual dividend duo on July 1, wa"? re
scinded. Tho loss at Glendale Nos. 1
and 2, is estimated at from $60,000 to
$65,000. The capital stock is $300,
000, which will be increased** to $500,
000 in July.
A meeting of the central relief com
mittee was hold this morning at whioh
reports from sub-committees at tho
Cliftons and at Paoolet were heard,
and various matters discussed. There
aro a number of sick people at Clifton
who are being oarred for by the com
mittee, through the sub committees.
A number of flood sufferers in the
county have been aided by the com
mittee. ? At Paoolet mills the com
pany and the sub-committees have
taken the matter of oaring for the de
serving in hand, with knowledge of
the amount of tho relief fund, and
they have, as yet, made no report. As
near as praotioable in the future the
central relief committee aims to have
an itemized statement published of all
moneys received and disbursed.
$145,000,000 Worth of Eggs. *
George Fayette Thompson, of tho
Agricultural department, has written
a treatise upon the modern hen which
contains information of interest. In
tho first plaoe Mr. Thompson declares
that the average get-rich-quick: con
cern stands in about the same relation
to an up-to dato hen aa docB an ioe
wagon to an automobile. As a rapid
accumulator of financial resources the
hen is in the same class as oil wells
and gold mines. The thoroughly :
modern hen no longer wastes her time
hatching eggs. She leaves that work
entirely to the inoubalor, while ehe
devotes the time thus gained to the
more profitable labor of producing
Consequently, Prof. Thompson has
discovered that there is a proportion
ately smaller number of fowls, but by
the adoption of labor and time saving
machines the lesser number has been
ablo to produce a constantly increas
ing output of eggs. . The treatise con
tains so much interesting information
about the hen and her product that
Seorotary Wilson has determined to
inoorpo-ate it in the forthcoming year
book ok the department of agriculture.
Prof. Thompson, who is also a sta
tistician of reputation, has discovered
that in the oity of New York each
family of five persons consumes on an
average four eggs a day. In Chicago,
if it is accepted that the city has
?reached a population of 2,000,000, the
ratio of egg consuming is higher and
every person in the oily manages to
consume on', whole egg each day in
The production of poultry abd eggs
is the most profitable of all industries.
Mr. Thompson estimates that a thor
oughly modernized bin can realize 400
per cont, "profit for her owner. In
thirty-three states and territories tho
value of eggs exceeds the value of tho
poultry product. Thc egg product in
the United States amounts to more,
when measured by dollars and cents,
than the combined gold and sihror pro
duction. This does not take tho poul
try into account, at all.
The value of the combined poultry
and egg product would be nearly 'dou
ble that of the precious metals. The
value of the industry is just six times
that of the wool pvoduot. Still, eggs
have taken only an inconspicuous
plaee in tariff debates. Protectionists
and tariff reformers aro in a perpetual
row over vrool, but the hon makes no
olamor for protection from congress.
Neither baa there been any - protest
against,the introduction of maohinery. J
Prices did not fall with the introduc
tion of the incubator. Instead, the

themselves to the education of the hen i
