' Suggestions for Conducting Grass Demonstrations.
The grass demonstration conducted
under the supervision of the Farmers'
agents in certain counties in the Piedmont
section of North and South
Carolina have proven successful be
yona expectations. Since it has been
^ demonstrated on numerous farms
rthat grasses and clovers can be
grown for meadows and pastures with
L ease and profit, we wish to extend
? and encourage the work to the exW
tent that it will become a part of the
r cropping system of every farm. To
aid in further promoting interest
along this line, the Farmers' Cooperative
Demonstration agents will
furnish all information as to the
selection of land, its preparation,
seeding and handling the crop on

suitable land ia a place easy of access
to the public view. He is to furnish
at least one ton of good agricultural
lime, and from 300 to 500 pounds of
acid phosphate per acre. The dedemonstrator
will be required to keep
an accurate account of the cost of
preparation, seeding, fertilizer, lime,
and the handling of the hay crop.
The hay is to belong to the demonstrator
and 'he will furnish the local

weighed, give as accurate an estih

* The thorough preparation of the
land is a prime necessity. It should
be plowed not less than 8 inches deep
a month before planting time. The
plowing should be followed by harrow,
roller or drag to put in perfect
condition for planting. The ideal condition
will be found where a good
rain has folowed the preparation and
r settled the soil. The harrow can be
run after the rain to procure a suit
able seed bed upon which the seed
r should be sown broadcast and covered
with a light harrow or weeder.
In case there is not an abundance of
moisture, a light roller may follow
the seeding to firm the seed been and

The Atlantic Coast Line's especially
equipped exhibit car left Wilmington
Monday night, the 18th, with one
of the very best Southern exhibits
that has ever been sent out, with a
view to attract settlers to the Atlantic
Coast Line territory, viz: Virginia,
Xorth Carolina, South Carolina,,
Georgia. Florida and Alabama.
The first stop will be the Canadian
National exposition, which will De
held at Toronto, August 3rd to September
8th. Then the car will double
back and the exhibit will be displayed
at various fairs in New York State,
and the New England States, until
The exhibit consists of sixty-three
glass jars of fruits and vegetables;
seventeen glass jar? of grain, peanuts
peas, rice, etc.; fifteen glass jars of
pecan nuts; Georgia and Florida

corn; peanuts and miscellaneous
products; grape fruit, pineapples,

bales of different kinds of hay
grown in the South; cocoanuts; a
small bale of cotton; cotton on the
stalk; sweet potatoes; corn on the
stalk; shotwing the prolific varieties
with four to six ears to the stalk.
A great deal of time was consumed
in getting the very best products
grown in the South, and much time
was consumed in preparing and put
ting up this exhibit in an attractive
A fact which the Southern farmer
should be proud of is that this exceptional
exhibit was secured from regular
farms and not a single item from
an experimental farm.
In addition to their regular "Nation's
Garden Spot" booklet, they
prepared a very handsome booklet
containing twenty-five Deauniui agricultural
and horticultural views
along the Atlantic Coast Line, especially
for distribution on this trip.
The exhibit is in charge of two experienced
men who will take special
pains to explain the exhibit and the
conditions in the South to all visitors.
We think this kind of advertising
should certainly attract settlers to
this unexcelled country if they can

At this time, one and one-half years
before its formal opening day, February
