True as Gospel.
The greatest drawback to agricultural
success is carelessness or something worse
ia the methods ot farming. There are
two underlying principles by which buc
ceasfal farming mast be governed ; - the
production of the supplies for home use at
home, and making these supplies on as
few aores as possible.
No farmer can succeed, if he relies on
farming for either a living or profit, who
has to buy his farm supplies. Instead of
buying be should have something to sell
every year; not only every year, but, by
diversifying crops, bave something to sell
throughout the seasons.
Ana he is a very slipshod , farmer who
cultivates an acre of land, year after year,
through a life time, to gather fifteen or
twenty bushels of corn and wheat, and
withal depend only on his corn and wheat
thus raised for his supplies and for a
surplus. The shortest road to agricul
tural prosperity is within the reach of the
farmers themselves, and themselves only,
and the reformation must begin directly
on the farm. All eggs must not be put in
one basket; and labor most not be wasted
on too much territory. Farms are im
proving, in many particulars, but vast
room still exists (or most important
changes for the better.
And, our farmers should be encouraged
in individual effort for improvement in
their condition rather than be taught to
look to outside agencies for help. The
man who depends on accidents or luck for
making money will end in the poor house,
and die, in fact, a pauper. A farmer who
believes he can be made rich by extrane
ous agencies, or governmental manage
ment will soon bave all that be hath un
der mortgage to his more intelligent
neighbor. Each man carries his own
destiny in his hands; each must be the
arohitect of bis own "fortune. Reforma
tion must begin at home, and only then
will prosperity prevail there. Asheville
The old method of cutting and caring
for newly-cut hay by hand required a
longer lime to carefully cure the product
thau is dow requUito. By the use of the
horse scythe, spreader and rake, grass
can be cured quite as perleutly in one day
as it formerly could in two days. If the
machine is not started in the morning till
the dew has dried off, and the tedder is
kept at work well up behind the mower,
there is no difficulty in curing hay enough
to haul in the same day it is cut, if the
grass is mature and the weather favorable.
Cut grass that is fully exposed to the sun
and air for two hours will have little
moisture left in it. It ia not necessary to
wait till the whole field is as crisp and
dry as bones before beginning to haul to
the barn. It should bo the aim to have
just as much of the curing done in the
cock, on the wagon and in the mow as
possible. Hay makes as fast white being
loaded ou the wagon and in taking it to
the barn as it does in the field. A little
"sweating" in the mow will lo uu harm,
for a little moisture can safely be led to
go off by its own heat, without injuring
its feediug qualities. Farm, Herd and
From the Raleigh Farmer.
Will you or some experienced farmer
give through the columns of your most
excellent paper the best method of apply
ing cotton seed for manure ? Does it add to
their fertility to crush them? If so, what
is the best and cheapest machine to crush
with? Can they be crushed wheu cotton
is beiog ginned and kept until time to
apply them wiihout damage?
Uespectfully, A. G. Cox.
In reply to the above, we would say
that the Nonpareil, mill, made by some
one in Cincinnati, Ohio, the Universal
mill, or the Barbour mill, made by the
Barbour Machine Works of Eufaula, Ala.,
will, any of them, probably do the work.
The Brown Cotton Gin Co. of New Lon
don, Conn., makes a small cotton seed
huller adapted to the farm. Raleigh
We think good machinery for the purpose

It is pretty well known that honey
crystalizes under the action of light, but
remains liquid in a perfectly dark room.
Why this change takes place is at length
suspected to be due to an action similar to
photography. As food for bees it is
worthless when crystalized. Hence the
reason why bees succeed only when work
ing in the dark. - In relation to the change
produced in bouey by exposure to the
light. M. Scheibler found that the same
agent which alters the arrangement of
iodine of silver on the excited colludion
plate and determines the formation of
camphor and iodine crystals in a bottle
causes the syrup honey to assume a crys
taline form. This, experimenter inclosed
honey in stopped flasks, some of which
were kept in perfect darkness, others ex
posed to the light. The invariable result
was, the sunned portion rapidly crys
trlized, while that kept in dark remained
perfectly liquid. Farm, Field and Stock
man. Heaves in Horses.
In heaves the great point is to correct
any faults in feeding, watering and work
ing. Keep the patient in a cool, clean,
well aired stable; feed sound oats or
ground feed morning and noon, without
any hay or straw, but at night a few
pounds of well-cured timothy, or better,
straw may be given after the grain; do
not put to work for at least an hour after
any meal, and let exercise be gentle for
the first half hour; never overdrive; if
there is any tendency to costiveness give
daily two or three ounces of Glauber
salts, more or less, as may be necessary to
keep them easy. Without such careful
management, all other measures will prove
unavailing, and this care alone may be
sufficient to check the disease in its early
iSf A thorough farmer, who knows
his business, will never worry about sor
rel. It is as good as anything to hold the
land together till we are able to enrich it
and grow a more profitable crop. When
we get ready to do that, the sorrel will
back out before any properly fed - crop of
a better sort, and stay out until nothing
more vigorous wants that spot, or is ready
to take it.
127" Many persons think that corn is
the best food for poultry. It is if you do
not wish eggs. For eggs, feed so(t food,
bran and meal; . with a little salt, in the
morning, and - a little cayenne pepper
added every other morning; -corn, wheat
or oats in the evening. A sole dieti
corn produces too much fat.
A eood thins? concerning swine cholera
is well said on page 230 of the June Cul
tivator: That by giving swice a variety
of wholesome food, au abundance of pure
water, comlortable, clean shelters and
quarters, and keeping as near to nature's
treatment as the conditions of domestica
tion will permit, we may nearly or alto
gether prevent the appearance ot swine
cholera, is supported by so much evidence
that it cannot be denied with reason. My
father indulged in the expensive luxury
of frequent outbreaks of cholera among
his swine for years; then, becoming con
vinced that rational,' careful treatment of
the animals would prevent this disease,
he stopped his searcii for a remedy and
gave all his attention to sanitation and
hygiene in the swine lot. That was al
most twenty years ago, and there has
been bat one outbreak of disease among
his swine since, and that only carried off
five or six pigs. He has always been
known as an extensive grower of the
best hogs. He has reared nothing but
pure-bred swine for a quarter of a century
at least; hence he has further demon
strated that pure-bred swiue may be pro
tected from the disease. There is no rea
son why disease should prevail among
swine more than other animals, except
that swine are kept under conditions
which are very unfavorable to health.
Swine plague is produced by a bacterium,
it is true, but other diseases produced by
bacteria are quite common, and it is well
known that general weakness favors these
diseases, while a vigorous body is more
than a match for the bacteria. No remedy
for the genuine swine plague has been
discovered; but that it may be almost, if
not quite, prevented has been demon
strated by many swine raisers, and the
measures of prevention are those which
make swine raising all the more profita
ble, aside from the prevention of disease.
tSgf" How many farmers iu North
Carolina can tell what it cost to produce
the various crops of their farms ? If they
be wanting in this important information,
how is it possible to know what are the
losses or profits ot the farm ! Suppose a
merchant should be unable to tell what
his goods cost him. How could he know
what his losses would be until bankruptcy
should suddenly show him au exhibit, in
whose dark.face the word ruined is writ
ten. We know of no more useful or profit
able lesson to be taught by the clubs,
alliances and grauges, than the one they
may give in farm book keeping. What
does it cost to fence laud ? What is the
cost of raising wheat, oats, clover, the
grasses, corn, tobacco and rye? What
does it cost to raise sheep, hogs, cattle,
colts, to a certain age? What does it
cost per ton to make a good fertilizer for
the various crops? Raleigh Progressive
- 22? The farmer who lives on a farm
lacking in fertility should make close cal
culations how many calves can be raised

tT" People in the country mak lor
themselves so few social pleasures that

Is one of the most fatal scourges which
afflict mankind. It is often inherited, but
may be the result of improper vaccination,
mercurial poisoning, uneleanliness, and
various other causes. Chronic Sores,
Ulcers. Abscesses, Cancerous Humors,
and, in some cases, Emaciation, and Con
sumption, result from a scrofulous condi
tion of the blood. This disease can be
cured by the use of Ayer's Sarsaparilla.
I inherited a scrofulous condition of the
blood, which caused a derangement of my
whole system. After taking less than
four botiles of Ayer's Sarsaparilla I am
and, for the past year, have not found it
necessary to tiso any medicine whatever.
I :nu now in better health, and stronger,
than ever before. O. A. Willard, 21S
Tn inont St., Boston, Mass.
I was troubled with Scrofulous Sores
for five years; but, after using a few
hollies of Ayer's Sarsaparilla, the sores
li'-aii'd, and I have now good health.
1 lizabi'th Wnrnock, 54 Appletou street,
Some months ago I was troubled with
Scrofulous Sores on my leg. The limb
was badly swollen and "inflamed, and the
sores discharged large quantities of offen
sive matter. Every rcmedv failed, until
I used Ayer's Sarsaparilla. By taking
three botiles of this medicine the sores
have been entirely healed, and mv health
is fully restored. I am grateful'for the
good this medicine has done me. Mrs.
