Still Clings to His Views Concerning
the Best Time to Spread Manure.
Rrolher "Brutus" has givon me a broad
side on the time of hauling manure, and
from the reading of his article, nny one not
tcqtiainted with my sentiments aud teach
iiiRS on the subject, would think me 1 ml iff
rent to the saving aud care of the uianuri
My teachings have always been that Hi'
fnrmer's land was his Hank, and the sur
plus or available fertility of the soil tin
sum that he cau check on annually, am'
that the availablo fertility could only bt
kept up, or maintained, by returning ti
the soil as much each year as tbe crop
irown br.d removed.
Then, of course, it becomes a matter ot
paramount importance to know how ti
save and judiciously apply each year tin
greatest possible amount of fertilizers tt
My observation, aud an experience ot
forty odd years in practical farming sbowi
ue that the latter part of summer aud earh
full is the best time for hauliug an 1 spread
ing tbe bulk of the manure made nnd saved
each year. I will not deny, for one instant,
the grand results attaiuod by vaj friend
when bo hauled and spread bis manure in
the spring. Neither do I dispute the granri
results of S unson when "he slew the Phil
estinos hip and thigh with the jaw bone ol
an ass." Tho slaughter was something
wonderful, nnd so of niy friend. But jusi
to think what SaniHou could bavo done had
be been possessed of a bettor weapon; just
so with my friend ''Brutus." Consequent
ly after looking carefully over the whole
subject, I am constrained to advise the
average farmer to haul and spread the bulk
of his fertilizers, iu the autumn. On hit
clover sod or any other sod intended for
corn, the next spring. As all of our com
ground goes to wheat each time, it is found
that the land fertilised as recotnuieuded is
iu the best possible condition for raising a
good crop of wheat, nnd nlxo for the clover
aud grass that follow the wheat. Now
here is where the beauties of the Bhort or
three years' rotation comes iu, to bIiow
which it becomes necessary to recapitulate.
To begin with a clover sod, we haul all
of the manure, coarse and fine, good, bad
and indifferent, on to it, after harvest, as
fast as opportunity will permit. Then we
break this as early as we can next spring,
and are sure we hare done the very best
thing possible to put our land in good fer
tility for a corn crop, and also for the
wheat and clover that follow the corn.
Then we repeat tho same process after the
clover has stood one year.
We, by this method get three crops for
one plowing. We never have auy plowing
(breaking up) to do except iu the spring
when the land is loose and mellow, and
tbe weather cool. We haul the manure
when the gronud is solid and the manure
light and easy to handle, and at a time of
the year when the time for such work can
best be spared. I hate found that the time
of greatest leisure to the former, except in
the winter when "no man can work," is in
the autumn, betweeu wheat harvest and
The chaage produced in the soil, by
even the poorest and coarsest kind of litter,
when spread in August and September, is
something wonderful; iudeed, it is fully
equal to that produced on my friend "B's"
land, when hauled in the spring and imme
diately plowed tinder, and according to onr
experience, and we have tried both ways,
a little bit better.
But in conclusion, if you don't haul out
your fertilizers in the fall, be sure that yoa
do haul enough each year at some time or
other to keep up an increased and increas
ing fertility of your soil, and be sure that
erery particle that can be used to increase
the productiveness of your fields, is saved
and used to the very btst advantage
A poor plan well followed is decidedly
preferable to no plun at all; therefore let
every farmer adopt the system of rotation
best adapted to his soil aud his own wauts,
aud a plan which should be "iron clad" as
were, but a plan of his own, for every
person can follow, aud adhere rigidly to
plans of their own much better than a plan
laid out by some cue else.
Iu justice to myself, I wnut to say right
here that it in not that I think myself wiser
than my neighbor farmers that I write
more thau they, not at ail; for all that I
know, nearly, I have learned from seeing
aud reading how other people do. My
maiu reasou for writing is for discipline;
for the training of my own miud and
thoughts. If iu so doing, I cau induce
others to think more, and be better farmers
aud help to make our county papers more
readable aud useful, my eud in writing is

Railroad—An Project for
Columbus Trade—The Different
Special Correspondences Ohio State Journal.
WASHINGTON, C. H., April 5th, 1885.
To people who know that the old town
f Washington C. II. lay dormant in the
mid for almost half a century, it issurpr s
tig enough to flud how it has, in recent
.ears, waked into importance, activity and
ife. The splendid system of free turn
nikea completed some years ago aud which
iow traverso every part of Fayette Vonnty,
tave to the town its first impulse. Since
'hen it hns become quite a railroad center,
he Cincinnati and Muskingum Valley, the
Springfield Southern, the Dayton narrow.
;age aud tho new Midland all passing
through the plice. Real estate has taken
on values unheard of until a year or so ago,
lew buildings are springing up on every
side, and the town, while it claims six
housand, doubtless numbers at least live
The people of W.ishiugton 0. H. (I wish
hey c mid get rid of those last two letters)
ire not content with the railroads they
nave, aud I found them agitating tbe sub
ject of an extension of the Midland line to
'he city of Maysville, Ky. This is a revival
if an old project, startod with the first
'irth of the Midland, and which ban long
been considered a desirable object by the
people of southern Ohio uud eastern Ken
tucky. It is a project, too, iu which the
Jitizens, and especially the business men
ind capitalists of Columbus might to be
leeply interested, as tbe building of this
would bring the Capital City into
direct relatious with a great region of coun
ry, the trade of which, now utterly cut off
from her, would then flow as nuturelly, to
ind from ber, as water ruus down hill.
That this extension of the Midland will
"ventually be constructed, I do not doubt.
The questiou is shall the men of the present
njoy the benefits, or shall those benefits
Do left to revert to future geueratious?
Meantime three different routes are
pokeu of as possiblo for the extension,
and each has its advocates : First, a route
leaving the Midland nt Washington C. II.,
md passing, either through Leesburg or
Lexington, to Hillsboro, and thence to
Sardinia, which latter place is a common
point of departure for Maysvillo for all
three of the routes. The second proposed
route is to have the extension leave the
Viidlaud at Sabina, midway between Wash
ington and Wilmington, "ruu to Vienna,
thence to Hillsboro, and thence to Sardinia.
The third route leaves Clinton Valley,
where the Midland forms a junction with
the Cincinnati, Washington ,t Baltimore
road, and thence, not touching Hillsboro,
goes direct to Sardinia, as the others.
I have carefully examined these proposed
routes, and, were the Bubject uot so exten
sive, should be glad to diavuss the details
of all three. Each has its advantages, but
ou the whole I iucliue to think that the
route from Washington is of greatest ail van
tage to all the larger towns involved, would
open up a richer uud more extensive coun
try in Ohio and would insure better returns
on the capital employed to build it. That
it would bo the best route for Columbus T
think there is no questiou at all. Tho dis
tauce from Washington to Hillsboro is
twenty-live miles. For four of these tho
present Midland could be used, leaving
twenty-one miles to coustruet. From Hills
boro to Sardinia is a narrow-gauge line of
seventeen miles which could be absorbed
by the new road and changed to staudard
gauge, leaving thirty additional miles to
build, by way of Georgetown and Ripley,
to Aberdeen, ou the Ohio river, opposite
Maysville. LoDg ago, or soon after the
Midlaud road was projected, the above line
was graded for ten miles between Sardiuia
and Georgetown, and this work could now
of course be made available. How easy a
thing it seems to bring Washington aud
Columbus, by this route, into close aud
mutually profitable relations with a popu
lous aud productive sectiou of Ohio, uud
witn tue coal, mineral and timber regions
of eastern Kentucky! The business men
of Columbus alone could afford to build
this Hue eveu if nobody else should give a
I said I should uot present each proposed
route in detail; aud so I shall conteut my
self here with brief tables of distances, by
each from Columbus to Maysville :
Columbus to Washington 39
Washington to Maysville 70
Columbus to Washington, as before 39
v sslungton to riabina 10
Sahina to Vienna 22
Hillsboro to Muvsville 45
Columbus to Washington 39
Washington to Clinton Valley 32
Clinton Valley to Maysville 50
The one special argument for tbe Sabina
route is that it takes 111 the flourishiug and
ambitions town of Vienna; aud the special
considerations which attract attention to
the. Clinton Valley route are the easy grades
rrom tnence to Sardinia, and the additional
mileage for passengers and freight that
would be given the present Midland road.
It is a question, however, whether the
greater business that would flow over the
line from Washington to Columbus, if the
direct route from Washington be taken,
would not more than compensate the Mid
land for any loss on tho mileage above re-
But whatever the route chosen the trade
of Columbus will be greatly bem fited
Tbe territory to be opened up to her by
this extension is aboot all that is left foi
her to avail herself of, ex-pt what may be
reached by tbe Columbus uud Eastern and
a possible new rood to the northwest. The
construction of the Midlaud line has reu

Our Exposition Letter.
[From our regular correspondent.]
NEW ORLEANS, LA., April 3rd, 1885.
Homo new and attractive exhibits are
tlmost constantly being added to this
"greatest show on earth," whoso last days
bid fair to be its best. Tho latest aingle
object of universal interest to be placed on
exhibition, and one deserving of more than
a passing notice, is a complete working
model of Cap . F.ads proposed 'Teliuaiite
pec Ship Railway," now on exhibition, very
appropriately, in tho Mexican section of
the Maiu building, and is constantly sur.
rounded by an interested crowd of specta
tors. This most interesting "model" shows
the entire practicability of lifting the
heaviest vessels out of the water by menus
of pontoons, or floating docks, almost pre
cisely such as are on the river in (bis port
the ordiuary method in ue for docking
ships iu all commercial countries. The
"model" shows the sinking of the Tiontoon
in the dock to receive the vessel when she
is raised by a lifting block which is capable
of lifting a vessel of five thousand tons
gross weight ; the dock will be 4"i0 feet long
7o feet wido and 1" feet deep, arranged
with a system of hydraulic rams placed on
an intermediate deck of thn pontoon. The
object of these rams is to distribute equally
the weight of the vessel. Tho pontoon ia
guided in its upward nnd downward move
ment by strong anchor rods, or columns,
passing through it freely, and firmly secured
in the foundations of tho dock. Upon the
pontoon is placed a carriage for supporting
and moving the vcRsel, nnd, as shown in
the model, receives an I moves off with the
ship with as much apparent ease as any
railway train. The "track" or railway, will
have six rails, three standard gauo tracks
of I feet 8j inches each. A full detail of
the proposed railway would occupy too
much of your space and could not bo made,
clear with out the aid of diagrams, but the
working of the "model" conclusively dem
onstrates its entire reusability, and the
gentleman in charge of the exhibit remark
ed to your correspondent, that "they would
certainly not be advocating the enterprises
if any doubt existed in their minds of the
success of the system. "
It may be ad led that nil the best engineers
iu Europe and America hive given Capt.
Eld's plan their endorsement, audit only
remains to obtain the necessary capital,
when the work will ho begun and prosecu
ted to a successful completion. Soveral
surveys have already been made to find a !
suitable routo rctosh the Isthmus, and the I
distance it is known emu be reduced to 1:14
miles of track, at a cost not to exceed fifty
millions, though dipt. Fads himself be
lieves he cau complete the entire work at ft
total cost of thirty-five millions. The re
sult of this mammotli undertaking wil be
to revolutionize the currying trade of tbe
world, nnd canuot fail to be of incalculable
benefit to the people, not only of America,
but of Europe and Asia. To the people of
the entire Mississippi Valley it must espec
ially prove of vaHt commercial interest.
opening up, as it must, now and most de
sirable trade with tbe eutiro Fucifle coast,
and its now far off Islunds. This route
will reduce the distance of ocean travel be
tween Sau Francisco and New Orleans 12,-
fil below that via Cape Horn, and lessen
the distance between the former city and
New York, by water, 10,7'd7 miles, and be
tweeu Sau Francisco and Liverpool tbe Ship
Railway will reduce the ocean travel from
j.Kll.T via Cape Horn to 7,527 miles or a
saving of fifty per ceut. Auyoue cau thus
see what important results are inevetable
ou the completion of the new route. That
onflicting interests are likely to antagonise
the enterprise may readily be expected, but
when the people learu of its certain advan
tages they will overrid all opposition and
compel the necessary aid to insure its suc
cess, which will be another step towards
the solution of the vexed problem of cheap
transportation. Mr. E. L. Cortbell, Chief
Eugineer, is in charge of tbe "model" to
explain it and illustrate tbe commercial fea
tures by a large map of the world.
The exhibit mado by this territory is
called tho "Gem" display of all the States
aud judging from the valuable minerals
and other products shown Idaho is cer
tainly a rare gem. It has been the good
fortune of your correspoudent to meet quite
number of gentlemen from this territory,
and if the balance of Idaho's population
are made from the same cloth" it must iu
deed be a pleasure to dwell in such aeouulry,
not even takiug into consideration that
Idaho's climate is doubtless, the year rouud,
tbe most delightsome withiu the boundary

Slioup, of Salmon City, a very wealthy
gentleman, is the IT. S. Commissioner,
while Mr. A. J. McNab, a proniiueut miner,
is tho acting commissioner now present iu
charge of the exhibit. To the interest
these gentlemen have taken iu showing up
Idaho's great wealth, the "Gem" territoiy
is indebted for a representation at the
World's Pair, as all the expenses so far have
been born by them, and they are not at all
light amounting to soma $25, (100. Th
Legislature of Idaho should not fail at their
next meeting to re-imburse these gentlemen
for their publio spii iteduess. Although

from which her thrifty people derive wealth,

AN INTERESTING BOOK
Which will Attract Both Old and
Young, and Which Contains Instructive
Matter for All.
There are some books which should be
found in every household : The Bible, a
good dictionary, au alumnae, and a reliable
book of reference iu case of sickness.
These should form part aud parcel of the
library of every family iu the land. Dr. S.
R. Hartinan's new aud revised edition of
"The Ills of Life," which is now ready, is
the book of medical advice and information
which should always be withiu reach. It
touches ou nil matters relating to the ills
which flesh is heir to, which cau be re
lieved by medical treutineut; gives their
nature, symptoms aud effects, aud shows iu
plain, distinct language the methods and
medicines to be used for the relief of the
patient. Every kind of fever, every dis
ease of tbe skin, all ailments which affect
particular organs of the body, such as the
liver or kidneys, all functiouul disturbances,
catarrh, dyspepsia, neuralgia, and the host
of enemies which attack the body, are
treated of iu "The Ills of Life;" aud not
only are both acute aud chronic forms of
lisease discussed, but this invaluable littlo
book contains an immense amount of hy
gienic advice in reference to the care of
the body, its prest vation in the normal
condition known as health, the causes
which produce those disturbances of the
system which we call sickness, and minute
and careful directions for restoring the
various disordered functions to their natu
ral working, and tho body to its natural
state of health.
This is no catchpenny volume. It is no
medium for advertising patent medicines.
The prescriptions given iu it are the results
of years of experience aud medical research,
and tan be filled at auy drug store. It
tells, iu language which the child can uu-
lerstand as well as the adult, not only tbe
conditions by which health may be pre
served, and the means by which it is im
paired, but shows what t do to regain it.
It is a book for tbe country as well as for
the city; it as useful to the rich family as
to tho poor one, and finds' nut only au ap
propriate but a necessary place in tbe hum
blest cabiu and the stateliest mansion. The
first edition has beeu read by hundreds of
thousands of readers, aud umtiy a suff rer
who, like tbo woman iu Scriptu e, "had
spent all her living ou physicians," blessed
the day when this book fell into ber bauds,
Tbe present edition is much enlarged and
improved, containing new matter of the
highest importance, uud is already in great
demand. It is uot sold, neither is it indis
criminately distributed, but will be cheer
fully sent to auy one desirous of leading it,
on reception of the requisite address and
two cents to cover postage.
