with the highest of hopes and pros

A Novel Experiment.
That is a novel experiement that
Mr. Henry Caldwell of (Spartanburg
is making, that idea of breaking up
-corn land with dynamite, and it will
be watched with: great interest. How
it is going to turn out, we confess
that we 'have no idea, and we shall
not attemipt to predict. There are
those who think that the deep break
ing up of land in the spring is fatal
to a good crop the same season; but
are of opinion that the result will be
beneficial later on. There is a com
monly accepted theory that b,acteria
is one of the most important, and an
absolutely essential requisite to the
production of good crops. The ex
prts assert as a fact 'that lightning
~kils the bacteria in the ground sur
rounding, wherever it strikes. We
have an idea that this killing is due
to the intense heat as well as tosthe
shoek. The explosion of dynamite
would be accompanied by both heat
and shock, but it may affeet the bac
teria adversely. Of course, also there
may be hbad effects from the tarning
up of too much elay subsoil at this
season. But, however, all this may
be, we do not want to 'be understood
as sugesting any unfavorable eriti
cismn of Mr. Caldwell, whether his
crop is a gqod one or not, we admire
the ori'ginality of his experiment, and
we think 'he is entitled to applause
for trying to do something.
