r cetoixa primary
So fs hove hcfttl Very little
concerning the coming primary,
however, we have heard it suggested
that the primary ought to be called
early say July. We sec no fensdn
tor such oction. This wxy&d a do
me an injustice to the farmer ele
ment of our county, and their rights
Wl wishes should be respected.
Farmers have just as much riflht to!

In 1892 the primary was VYled for
Jul'vlSth. that day no fewer
than thirtf ve teshers were run

thresher fom five to ten voters were
mployed. These men had to either

their votes entirely. As a result, a
great many did not vote at all-.

the early primary in 1S02 vas that
It w3 general ejection year, aud
that the primary should be early so
that all local differences would be
Settled and the sore places healed
ter before the November election.
Hut there can be no reason of this
kind this year. This ia an '"off"
year, and if the great State of Mis
souri 'rih her ' 'beastly Democratic
majority" cannot take care of her
self without depriving the farmers of
tSeott county of a chance to have a
"fair shake" at the primary, then
let 'or slide.
If candidates prefer to make a
short campaign, then le'- them Wit
a while. We see no nesd for an
nouncing prior to April or May. Of
course, some papers are anxious to
urgea early campaign, but that
o'.v indicates that they are a little
short run and need the announcement
fee. We see no need of the candi
dates stirring up the muss so early.
April is early enough to announce and
tho primary should not be earlier
than August 15th. By that time
wheat threshing would be practical
ly over with, and the farmers would
have a breathing spell.
In speaking of the primary of 1892
we do not wish to be understood as
casting any reflection upon the com
mittee that ordered it. We believe
that they acted in good faith and did
what they thought best. And we be
lieve that they will agree with us
that it would be a mistake to call it
early this year.

What a wonderful change ! Does Mr.

There is, in our opinion, but one
way for the people in the country to
get good roads, and that is the same
way people in the cities get them.
They must build the roads them
selves. The day on which we sur
render our self-reliance and sit dowu
in despair to wait for government in
terference will mark the death of
personal liberty in the land. When
paternalism comes in at the door,
freedom flies out at the window.
The commune is not the republic.
Socialism is not independence. Cen
tralization is the abyss in which the
institutions our forefathers fought
for will be engulfed. Communities
that are too poor to build good roads
are communities that do not want or
do not know how to make themselves
prosperous. Prosperity in the agri
cultural districts is not the cause of
good roods, it is the result of them.

Nothing could be more truly or cer

arc things more to be desired in this
busy world of ours than even good
roads, and the chief of them is per

idea established among us that tho
government is only a great corncrib
which must care for and feed our
stock; that there is a nameless some
thing or somebody in Washington
whose duty it is to look after our per
sonal and individual welfare, then
we shall have reached a ruinous stage
in the history of our country. There
is neither reason or excuse for the in
terference of the government in con
struction of good roads. It is the
business of each separate community
and of each separate county to at

THK COW PEA.
From Colman's Rural World.
That farmer who makes a study of
his business will very readily per
ceive the value of . legumes in his
crop rotations; not only to obtain the
highest results from a present finan
cial standpoint, but to best preserve
or improve the natural fertility of
Nitrogen is undoubtedly the most
valuable ingredient taken from the
soil, and the most costly one to re
place, where commercial fertilizers
are Used for reaching that end. To
the farmers of the West the question
of purchasing nitrogen has hardly
presented itself, they finding it more
profitable to obtain this element by
growing the legumes. The clover
has long held flrt rank among these,
and has been found not only to large
ly increase the fertility of the fields
but to produce large quantities of
provender, besides yielding abundant
The cow pea is the legume that
has held the highest favor in the
South for many years, and is gradu
ally extending its domain northward.
In South Missouri it is being exten
sively grown on fruit lands,, and
either eaten down by hogs or else
plowed under when it reaches its
greatest luxunence. In roan re -

rapid, and doubtless adds in one sea
son more nitrogen to the soil than a
cTop of clover, while s forage for
stock, especially hogS) it is found to
bs most excellent.
At present the seeds are hard to
obtain and cost one dollar or one dol
lar and a quarter per bushel. They
may ba bought in Memphis and per
haps St. Louis and Kansas City; it
is probably best to have your local
seedsmen order them for you. Avoid
weevily peas. It is claimed by many
that the weevil attacks only the
starchy matters and never injures
the embryo, however this may ba,
careful experiments have proven
that weeVily peas more often fail to
sprout, while those that do sprout
are found to be less thrifty than
those vines grown from good seed.
Thete are three main objects in
the culture of the cow pea, it may be
grown for plant food or manure, for
forage and as a money crop. As a
manurial crop it is either sown
broadcast and haiTowed in, or else
sown in corn after the last plowing.
The method of sowing will determine
the amount of seed per acre, it vary
ing from one to four bushels, weight
sixty pounds to the bushel. When
alone it is best to sow earlv as nosei
ble in the spring, waiting until the
'ground is warm and danger of hard
frosts is past. Some growers prefer
to wait until the first, or even as
late as the middle of June in order
to avoid the ravages of the pea bug,
prevalent in some sections. In this
locality, however, I think it unad
visable to wait this late, especially
if the crop is to be harvested. When
sown in corn the object is manure or
forage and the sowing is necessarily
late. As a manure the crop should
b3 plowed Under just before coming
into bloom, as it has been found - to
hold at that time tho highest amount
of nitrogen. If desired, pat ash and
phosphoric acid may be added in a
commercial form; and these, together
with the nitrogen found in the pen,
vino, will add the three great retjui
sit.'s to the soil.
In diversified farming it is more
profitable, especially on the fertile
lands of the West, where other ob
jects than the enrichment of the land
may be looked for to pasture the
pea crop before plowing it in. It
makes a splendid food for the hog in
particular. Care should be taken in
turning cattle and horses in upon the
crop, as death may follow over eat
ing. They should not be turned in
hungry, but should be fed, watered,
and salted before; they may then be
left in as long as desired. Swine are
very fond of the pea hnd there is
nothing, psrhaps, superior for laying
on lai. it is nest to turn them in
when the pods are fully developed
and the pea soft. This treatment
not enly lays on a large amount of
meat in the stock, but the Wfwse
roots and manure add very materi
ally to the fertility of the soil. Sown
in corn it adds very much to the val
us of the stock field, as well as to
the enrichment of the soil; while the
soil itself is protected from the
washings of late rains. This method
of sowing yields from three to fifteen
eusheis ot seed per acre.
Owing to the low price of wheat
and the lessening of the yield caused
ny continued croppings, the growing
01 cow peas otters two very promi'
nent inducements. At the price
now received lor the latter the pro
fits must surely surpass those of
wheat crops: the yield of peas sown
broadcast being from fifteen to forty
Dusneis per acre, on our rich Missis
sippi lands probably ranging nearer
the latter figure. Aguin nothing
will add more to the richness, and
therefore value of our lands, than
the growing of this Valuable legume.
The cutivation is easier than the cul
tivation of corn; and the harvesting
may, by proper methods, become
more cheaply done.
It is already manifest that this
plant is to reach a much more promi
nent place on our farmsj and toe dis
cerning man who takes up its culti
vation before its products are cheap
ened will acquire the greater profit.
It is he, who learns that when a
product has reached a state of over
production, it is to his best interests
lo grow another upon which he teay
realise tne pest results from ma labor.-
