I semethiag m>er Abeet AS to Its IH
In a former article I referred to the
importance of legaitbons nrots in the
restoration of our bhad so as to make
the maximum crops possible, and spoke
of the southern cow pea in starting
this improvement.
Within the ,past five years another
crop has been introduced to the notice
of our farmers that promises to be the
greatest aid and ally of the cow pea
for the southern farmer that has yet
been tested. This is the annual win
ter growing clever, now knowni as
crimson clover. There Is no plant that
fits in so well with the cow pea as a
forage crop for the south, or as a
renovating crop. I have been urging
the merits of this clover upon the ee.t
ton farmers of the south for several
years, and not only on the cottoa farm
era, but on all of our farmers alike
AMr. R. P. MeAnally, of Saxon, N. Ci.,
writes that he tried crimson clover
three years ago, but it grew only nine
Inches high and he discarded it. But
recently he was induced to give it an
other trial with the help of 800 pounds
of kainmt per acre harrowed in wsith
the seed, and now he reports a won
derful growth-"as thick as the hair
on a dog's back." This shows that ilis
soil needed the help of the potash in
the kanit to enable it to gather
nitrogen for him. The great ad
vantage to the cotton farmer In.the
crimson clover crop is that he can sow
it all through his cotton field after
the cultivation is over in August and
will have a green pasture all winter
in place of a bare soil mashing away
all through the winter rains, and will
have a growth to plow under
for corn in the spring that will
insure him a good crop. Then
as I have said, it fits in well with the 4
co. pea crop, for as soon as the peas
are cut for hay he can sow the clover I
seed on the land after stirring it with 1
a cutaway harrow, and can pasture it I
till time to put the land in order for
cotton.
Mr. Wm. Choice, of Spartanburg,. . 1
C., writes that he had an outlying
farm that he tried to sell as he had
more land than he needed, but failing 4
to do so, he asked my advice how to I
treat it, as the land had been badly
run down under the old one-crop- 1
planting systenm. I advised him touse 1
liberally potash salts and dissolved a
phosphatic rock, and sow it down in i
crimson clover. lie prepared in Au- a
gust a large field and did as directed.
The results have been, he says. more
than satisfactory. "In April, follow- a
ing. the clover was in full bloom, and
made a large crop of hay which was 1
1ff in time to plant cotton. Planted
on the clover sod, without any other
manure, and the young cotton now
shows that rich, rank growth which is 1
a fair harbinger of a good crop. This i
goes to show that a proper rotation,
with crimson clover as the basis of re- I
cuperation, will make the farm rich r
and at the same time give paying
:rops.
Here, then, we see the effect of one
well-fertilized crop of crimson clover,
the hay from which futly paid all ex
pense of fertilizers, in giving the prom
ise of a good crop without further fer- 1
tilization. No bills for complete fer
tilizers at a high price to be paid out
of that cotton. This shows what I
have for years been insisting upon,
that the true way to fertilize for our
sale crops is to use the cheaper forms
of mineral plant food to grow a heavy
crop of the plants that are going to
p capture for us the nitrogen that costs
a so much in a complete fertilizer,
and thus not only get a heavy
I forage crop to feed for the making of
a profit out of stock, and to make our
manure pile larger. but thus fix ni
trogen in the land for the succeeding I
crop of cotton or corn. This is in ef- 1
fect not only getting the fertilizer
free for the cotton crop, but the mak
lug of a profit in doing so and at the
same time have the satisfaction to
know that our soil is actually being
improved by the process. It has been I
well said that "the coming farmer of r
the south will be a legume farmer." a
Cow peas and crimson clover, with a 1
liberal use of the cheap potash and
phosphates, lie at thie very foundation i
of all rational farm improvement in a
the south. I:y their aid the land need c
never, either in winter or summer, be c
left to the wasting of rains and sun by I
lying bare, but between every hoed crop i
may be covered with a growth to yield '
profit while it gathers fertility for the c
land and food for the sale crops. But c
it must not be assumed that these t
crops will bring all the elements of 1
futility to a soil that has been ex-l r
hausted by long tillage and exposure t
to tire leactlingR effects of rain and sun.
If you want the leguminous crops you g
must feed them. They will gather t
nitrogen for you free, but they can not I
get the potash and phosphoric acid
that the crops of former years have
taken away from the soil, and with
nut these are given them they can not
get t:.e nitrogen they would with as
well-developed growth, and you will d
not only use the hay crop they would c
give, but thie effect on the soil for sub- a
sequent crops. Nothing from nothing t
and mnthing remains. It will pay far
better to put a liberal dressing of the I
cheap mineral fertilizers on the pea 1
and clover cropas, thai to put the same
money value in a high-grade fertilizer
on the cotton crop direct, and not only
pay better in the cotton crop, but in I
the permanent improvement of the
soil. Having these two crops then as 1
sheet anchors in our efforts to grow
cotton cheaply, we will take up in our
next the various rotation of crops that
may be practiced with cotton as the
meoney crop, or, in other words, the
Sway in which we will change from
planting to farming.--Cor. Farm and

A FRUIT HOUSE.
Some flints to Tbose Who Have Fruit to
(Store.
In some localities it is rather difficult
to secure a good cellar without consid
erable work. Often draining by dig
gint a trench is necessary; and, whcn
this Is the case it w~ill often pay to
build a fruithouse above the ground,
rather than to run the risk of water
flooding in and damaging the fruit and
vegetables. A fruithouse, if well
built, so as to be frost-proof, is much
more convenient than a cellar in many
ways, but good care must be taken in
doing the work if good results are to
be secured.
Two by six-inch studding will be the
best; that is, not less than this should
be used. They can be placed two feet
apart, and it is usually best to brace
the corners. Eight feet is plenty high,
and in most cases six will be sufficient.
It should be built close to the ground,
so that it can be banked up readily on
all sides. On the outside rough boards
can be nailed on first, and over this a
layer of tarred paper or heavy stratr
paper, and then the whole should be
carefully weatherboarded.
When it can be done, it will be best
to fill the space between the studding
with sawdust, taking care to fill ia
tightly. Rough boards can be nailed on
the inside, and over this tarred paper
should again be tacked.
Overhead a tight layer of boards
should be put, and on them a good
layer of sawdust. A chimney, or place
sor ventilation, should be provided.
('are should be taken to make tight;
the door and ventilator should
be all the openings. Good, close
fitting doors, one to open outside
and one inside, will help. ]Boxes
or bins should be built inside and
about four inches away from the
wall. This will give airspace between
the wall and the fruit. To make
doubly sure, an old stove set in the
room in which a little fire may be
made in the severest weater, will be
found a benefit, as a very little fire
will lessen very materially the danger
of damage. A house of this kind, in a
winter like the last one, will keep
fruit and vegetables without freezi;ig,
but in winters such as we sometimes
have, a little fire will be necessary.

The Bacon hlog.
The Danes find the bacon hog the
most profitable--a very different ani
mal from the lard hog, and fed on
more nitrogenous nutriments. The cow
and hog dovetail together very fitting
ly. The hog groVws cheapest on the
pasture and beside the fields that gr-ow
its grains. lie is most profitable is a
subordinate department, because ha
can not consume the coarse foddlers
of the farm. lie furnishes the
best iparket in which to sell the
by-pry.cts of the mill and dairy.
The hog 'akssimilates more of the most
cocentrated feed stuffs than any
other animal of the farm. Quicker re
turns come from him than from
horses, cattle or sheenp. He pays the
rents in Nuropean countries. Ie lifts
the mortgages in the northern states.

THE GREATEST KILLING.
inme Men shot to Death Ia One !tight by
a Gambler.
In the way of prompt and deadly
shooting nothing in all the red caletb.
dar of homicide in the fat west beats
the record of the gambler, Riley, at
Newton, Kas.. made one night in 1871.
The Santa Fe railroad had been built
to that point during the year, and a
flourishing town had grown up around
the terminus to which the Texas cattle
drives that had been going to Abilene
were turned. One night the Texas
cattle drives were in for shipment, and
the cowboys were celebrating. Some
of the Texans had a grudge against
the officers of the town, and so they
came in prepared for trouble, and they
set about making itstraightway. They
killed the city marshal, the deputy
marshal and another man early in the
evening. Later they poured into Pink
ham's dance hall to the number of
twenty-five or thirty.
Their first break was to assassinate
a harmless citizen. Riley was in the
dance hall and the man just killed was
a particular friend of his. Without a
word Riley stepped back to the big
double doors in the front of the saloon
and closed them. Placing his back
against the doors, he drew a pair of a
revolvers and fell to shooting, one man
against the crowd. Men tumbled left
and right, and shots rang out all over
the room in response to the cracking
of Rilev's ph.tols. Shots perforated
and splintered the door all about him,
but he stood there firing until his
pistols were emptied. Then leaping
over the counter he caught up a re
volver that lay on a shelf beneath and
kept on with his ~flring. Before he
had emptied the pistol that he found
behind the bar the men inside had
forced the front doors open. Those
that could rushed out and Riley shot
his last man in the middle of the
street.
When it came to counting up losses
it was discovered there were thirteen
dead men in the town, due to that
night's shooting, of whom nine cow
boys had fallen by Riley's hand. A
doctor, hastily summoned to the scene,
came to the side of a cowboy who was
d, ing. "How is it, Doe'?" asked the
wounded man. "Am I going to pull
through?" The doctor shook his head
and said: "I'msorry, my poor fellow,
but I can not give you any hope."
"'How about the man who shot me,"
said the cowboy, "is he dead?" "No,"
answered the doctor, "he was not
even wounded." "I know better than
that," said the cowboy. "I know he
was hit I was right by the side of
him when he shot me, and before I fell
I fired and hit him under the arm. You
examine him and you'll find that he's
wounded there." When the doctor got
round to Riley hie examined him and
found that he had received a flesh
wound under his arm, which in the ex
citement of fighting he had not no
ticed. Riley left the town after the in
quest and didn't appear there again.

A Mystery About Blood.
There is something very mysterious
about the color of human blood, or,
rather, as to what causes its red color.
The physiologists say that "the color
of blood is due to the red corpuscles
which are contained in the vein
fluids," but this does not entirely cx.
plain the mystery. An aggregation of
blood corpuscles are red, to be sure,
but in small numbers they are yellow,
while one or two cramined separately
are found to be a very light straw
color. Why a large aggregation of
these tiny discs should convey the im
pression of red to our sensesM while a
few show a yellow and a single speci
men alight straw colar, is something
that the editor of "Notes for the Cu
rions" would like to see explainel-

Inereasing navigation converges to the
common eastefa tefmlne at BUEalo.
The existesnce of the great lakst has
nltde possible the so-called northwest,
since it has permitted the products of
the northwest to reach asarketa at a
much lower flgtre than has been
psslble by all rail. from Duluth to
Buffalo, eleven hundred miles, it costs
about one-third as much as it costs to
transship and transport across New
York state. Inclkeaing competi
tion from those counDries of
the world possessing cheap land
and cheap labor makes it
imperative on the producers, the farm
era of the northwest, to search out, if
possible, some way of getting their
crops to the eastern markets at a lower
rate than they have been getting. To
every producer in the northwest it will
be of interest to know that on Septem
bet 94-96 there Will be a convention
held hi the city of Cleveland for the
purpose of developing in a large way
the facts relating to this deep water
navigation from Iluffalo eastward.
With a view to decreasing the cost, it
ii necessary to use the existing lakes
and river, with supplementary canals,
and to reduce the cost from Buffalo
nsat in some such ratio as has been se
cured in the upper lakes. An eminent
engineer, C. N. Dutton, who has given
the matter a great deal of study, has
prepared the following statements and
figures, which I beg to present, with
out comment, simply asking that they
be read and thought on:
"Sixteen great states, naimely. Ohio, Indi
ans, Illinois. Kentucky, Michigan, Wisconsin
Minnesota, lowa, Missouri, North Dakota,
South Dakota. Nebraska, Kansas, Montana,
Wyoming and Colorado. must ship their sur
plus agricultural products from the great
lakes to the seaboard. Deep-water navigation
would effect an immediate reduction in f(eight
costs., and consequent increase in crop values
of an average of five cents a bushel on grain
and potatoes, four dollars a ton on hay and
live dollars and upwards a ton on straw.

inereased annual earning of 3l33! per acre If
the market value of land depends upon
its earning power. and the ratlo of ln
crease of value be taken a; four times the In
crease in yearly earnings, then the improved
farm lands of these sixteen states will in
crease in value $9.3354 per acre. or $1.86,0003.000
as the immediate result of the opennlg of the

"Vast as this sum appears, it Is a partial
statement of the gain to the west resulting
from deep draft navigation to the seab3ard.
because It is based on the short crops of 1614,
and does not take account of truck, fruits,
small grains, dairy products, poultry, eggs,
horses and mules, and wood, timber, bark, state:
neither does it take account of mine products
and maaufa:tures, or the increase in values in
city and manufacturing p: operty."
This movement has received the in
dorsement of most of the United States
senators from the west.
Last winter the legislature of Minne
sota memorialized congress in support
of this measure. Senator McCleary, of
Mankato, is gathering data from Canm
ada and the United States with a view
to urging it in the narthwest and in
congress.
The east has no transportation ques
tion. Hier manufactured goods, worth
perhaps thousands of dollars a ton, are
not perceptibly affected by a slight dif
erence in freight. The farming dis
tricts of the west are vitally affected
when all profit in their crops is eaten
up by the carrying charges. As a na
tional question it should be borne in
mind that the manufacturing east re
ceives her raw products largely from
the west; also her cheap food supplies.
In turn she finds her best market in the
farming states of the west. It should
also be remembered that the enormous
cash balance annually required abcad
to settle the foreign exchange mungt be
provided in the main by the western
and southwestern farms or by gold.
The pressure is urgent. The naviga
tion cannot be provided soon enough
if commenced now. The convention at
Cleveland will be marked by the pres
ence of many specialists with specially
prepared papers covering a wide range
of public matters. As chairman of the
executive committee, I respectfully re
quest correspondence with commercial
bodies, public oicdals and the papers,
if in any way it may lead to fuller in
formation and a quickened interest. In
particular, I desire assurances of sup.
port which can be shown at the proper
time as evidence of popular sentiment.
