CULTUKt OF UPLAND RICE.
By Small Farmen With the Least Kxpendl
luro of Fland Labor and Ki]icn?e.
To raise upland rico cheaply and
without much hand labor yon ueed now
ground ur old fields which bavo pyown
tip in broomsedge, for on old binds the
gr.v.:? is vary difficult to koop our. This
laud should be woll broken and rows
laid ofl about three feet apart. Tho |
grain should be planted on n small bud,
'as that tho yonng plant may bo culti- ?
vated befnro the grass begins to grow. !
In selesting your seed bo sure that yoii ;
get the white variety, lu planting drop
a few sesd?13 to 15 in a bill?about
every IS inches. A peck or a half bushel
of seed will bo sufficient to plant for n
very largo family.
Yon begin your cultivation as soon as
tho young plnuts will allow, by giving
it it hoeing in order to kill nil grass that
may bo up or coming up. Ah for the
rest cf tho cultivation, it can be done
chiefly with tho plow, tho chief object
being to koop out the grass. Onu or two
more hoeings way be uocossary, as the
case may require.
When tho rico is ripe, which can bu
told by tho grains assuming n t;m color
nnd by turning of the stem, it should
bo cut, tiotl into bundles and bung out
to dry. To hang tho rieo for drying
place a polo upon forked sticks, ns tho
rldgo polu of a tent, and put tho riee on
this, pulling tho head of tho bundle
open and placing it head downward
that tho rain might bo kept out.
When it is thoroughly dry, take it
down, bent it out and carry it to tho
hnllur. If there is no hullur convenient,
yon should not let this hinder you from
planting, as yon can very easily beat it
out with a mortar nnd pestle. Tho fore?
going is from a Georgia correspondent
of Southern Cultivator.
Tnlno cf the Sorghum Crop.
Tu ft bulletin from tho Texas station
it is learned that sorghum in Texas not
only withstands tho drought, but ii par
excellence the forage crop for localities
subject to hot drying winds. According
to the bulletin, sorghum yioldsnn abun?
dance of forage, giving from two to
three cuttings a roar ami furnishing
from 10 to ;.'0 tons of green fodder to
tho acre. This is n fair average, though
maximum yields of 36 to 80 tons nro
recorded. Tho yield, however, is con?
trolled largely by soil, cultivation,
method of seoding and climatic condi?
tions. Each aero will furnish from four
to eight ions of dry hoy, which forms
a nutritions food for all kinds of stock.
As a soiling crop it stands unrivaled us
yet, for by the time tho opposite limit
of n patch suited to the sizo of tho In rd
has been reached tho other side will bo
ready to t ut a BQCOud time, ami so the
process continues from early spring to
killing frosts in tho autumn.
The South Buys Leas Meat.
Tho south buys less of her meat than
formerly, but the bill is too largo yet.
This is the way a southern writer puts
it: "Do you know, my friend, that you
can turn off a litter of pigs at the same
time your wife will hatch a flock of
young chickens ami can put yonr pigs
on your Bermuda grass, and by tho
timo the wifo or poultry man can have
tho chickens largo enough to bring -10
or CO cents per bead in market yon can
pnt yonr pigs on tho market at to
Rural New Yorker, commenting on
tho foregoing, says: "Think of n -tain
that can product.* tho grass and olovet
crops grown in Louisiana importing
moat. You might just as well think of
sending nmrblo or graniio from Georgia
to Vermont and Now Hampshire or
bringing nitrato of soda from Pern to
replace the nitrogen that leached out
of your barnyard!"
Rico In Texas.
The acreage of rico in Texas near the
gnlf of Mexico will bo twico as largo
in 1895 as it was in 1804. A great
inany people havo found homes in tho
localities adapted to rice growing, and
ns this crop pays better than cotton it
is likely to be grown until tho market
is glutted nnd tho pric? declines, in
the meantime the new tariff does not
interfere with tiiis southern industry.
The duty on rice is maintained at its
old figures.?American Cultivator.
Homemade Sod Cutter.
A simple, device, which was original?
ly skotched for Gardening, represents
a homemade sod cutter. ?
A SIMPLE DEVICE.
Tho cutting part consists of an old
iBW blade, the back of which ought to
bo kept sharp. Sods cut with this tool
nro of oven thickness ami width and
ertunra on at tho sides, so that tiiey lit
closely and tightly together.
