Plaster for Wheat.
Please ask some of your correspondents to give
us an article on plaster for wheat. Is it a good
fertilizer on quick, saDdy land for wheat and
oats? T. B. R., floral CoUege.N. C.
Answer. We do not remember to
have heard or read of any recommenda
tion of plaster as a fertilizer for wheat.
It is a very common practice at the North
to apply plaster to clover when bows in
connection with whelt; bat the applica
tion is made for the benefit of the clover.
In some cases of this sort it is claimed
that the plaster benefitted the wheat, and
it is not impossible, but doubtful. Plaster
does not contain the elements of fertility
demanded by wheat, as it has only sul-
gbnrio acid and lime, the latter element
eing more cheaply supplied in other
forms than plaster. It is generally un
derstood that plaster acts beneficially as
an absorbent of ammonia, and it is possi
ble that it may improve a wheat crop in
this way. If any readers of the Culti
vator have bad any experience on this
Hoe we would be glad il they will lay the
same before the other readers. Southern
Tin this section, plaster has long been used as
a fertilizer for wheat. Char. Democrat.1
Some Grass Talk.
The statement which follows will sound
. like nonsense to many "cottontots," but
will be recognized as truth by many
thoughtful, progressive agriculturists
now, and by all in the near future.
On the bestowal of more and better at
tention to grass and stock will depend the
success of Southern agriculture. Let the
reader look around him and he will find
that the planters who are farmers, who
have given most attention to stock, grass,
and the so-called small industries of the
farm, are the moBt successful, most pros
perous and the best contented with their
profession. But, says one, "This is not a
grass country." Not a grass country,
when all the iarm labor is engaged for six
months every year in the most strenuous
efforts at killing grass a grass which
produces a hay, if merely "let alone,"
interior to cone one that seeds itself and
is excellent either for hay or pasturage.
We prepared two acres of land in 188G,
early in May; sowed one to German mil
let and allowed crop grass to grow upon
the other. We harvested, in round num
bers, 4,100 pounds of hay from the acre in
orop grass and 4,750 pounds from the
German millet. We harvested a heavy
ciop of German millet hay on the 23d of
July that was sown on May 26th. The
bay cured and boused in less than sixty
days from day o( seeding.
With crop grass, German m i 1 1 e t ? lespe
dtza, Johnson grass, lucern, Texas blue
grass, Texas millet, Indian corn, peas, rye
and barley from which to make selection
everywhere in the cotton belt, and the
clovers and cultivated grasses added in
the upper half of the belt where the lands
are clayey or calcarous, we are without
excuse if we fail of an abundant supply of
forage and pasturage for stock of every
description. If we will cease to ' run
alter strange gods" and devote ourselves
to the encouragement of the forage plauts
which our God intended for our soil and
climate, the bale of Western hay would
become a stranger in our land, and Chi
oago beef and oleomargarine would no
longer find purchasers in our markets.
Good Christian people are melted into
tears of sympathy for the poor heathen
Chinese and the benighted African, while
they fail to recognize the fact that they
are surrounded by objects' as worthy of
their gushing charity and philanthropy
whioh tail to attract their attention. So
with us. We spend our time and money
in vain efforts to climatize Northern and
European grasses while equally valuable
candidates for our favor come unbidden
and are even spurned s nuisances.
With crop-grase, Bermuda and lespe
dezi for summer pasturage, and barley
and rye for winter pasturage, and green
soiling, with all of these, Johnson grass
and lucern for hay, and Indian corn and
peavines in the silo, fat beef and mutton
and golden butter should take the place
of Western bacon and oleomargarine. If
we will employ a tithe of the energy and
industry in encouraging grass to grow
that we devote to its destruction, there
would no longer be heard complaints
against the South as a grass country.
The heaviest yields of hay on record have
been made in the cotton belt. Col. Geo.
W. Scott, grew at Decatur, Ga., 9,800
pounds of clover hay at one cutting. J.
S. Newman, Auburn, Ala.
The common turkey is a native of North
America. Its name arose from the con
fusion that at first existed relative to
identity of the bird with the Guinea fowl,
which is known as a native ot Turkey.
There is no better place for keeping tur
keys than a large, open shed. It should
s be so constructed as to protect the fowls
from the inclemency of the weather, and
especially from wet, which plays sad
havoo with them. Have high perches,
but do not neglect to make a broad lad
der for them to walk up to roost. It
might be asked why a ladder, when the
turkey in its wild state roosts on trees
and other high. places? When we fatten
fowls in the domesticated state, they be
oome heavier than when wild, and the
weight is too much for the strength oi
their wings. While enjoying their liberty,
they take exercise which preserves them
from "aldermanio proportions." Avoid
roosting on trees; many a flock has been
wiped out of existenoe in. consequence of
this. There is no surer way to introduce
roup among your fowls than iu allowing
The female begins to lay iu spring.
As a rule, she will make her nest in some
obscure plaoe, where she will drop an egg
daily or every other day, until as high as
twenty eggs are laid, according to the
maturity ot the bird. A turkey hen is a
very persistent sitter, aud will often half
starve before she will leave the nest. Il
kept in the bouse all the morning, which
is the time they lay, the possibility of
hiding their eggs is avoided. In l he sec
ond layings, the number ol eggs rarely
exoced thirteen. Incubation varies from
twenty-eight to thirty-two days. Young
turkey chicks hould be removed from
(be nest shortly alter they are hatched.
In feeding poults about two or three
months old, such boiled herbs as wild suc
cory, taroip-tops, and uabbage sprout,
are suitable. Boiled potato skins and a
few potatoes may be given, mixed with
bean, oats, barley or buckwheat.' Wheu
six months old, boiled potatoes mashed
and mixed with meal, and fed fresh in a
slean vessel, continued for about a month
morning and -evening, will develop a good
weighty sod fit iLera tor the market. It
the early market is to be met, do nut fail
to keep the Jowls a greater portion of
their time in darkness, acd curtail as
much of their exercise as possible. Tor-
key poults must be protected against cold
or damp weather, as well as intense sun
shine. In case of rain, they should be
housed at once. The turkey raiser mast
constantly keep his eyes open, and never
neglect the slightest act oi kindness or
cleanliness. A great many turkeys die
annually for waut of these. American
Oak Leaves as a Fertilizer. -
1. I have in woods a heavy layer of
oak leaves. Will they, as they contain
potash, be valuable as a fertilizer for next
crop, if decomposed and used with proper
chemicals, for cotton and corn on deep,
alluvial lands? If so, when put them up,
and bow, and what put with them to has
ten decomposition : will have no stable
manure; what is best to use with leaves
as a fertilizer for both crops i
2. The soil of this land is two feet deep;
how deep ought the soil to be broken
when plowed the second time with two-
horse plow next spring r A lieaaer,
Itexmqton, Jx. U.
Oak leaves contain a good deal of pot
ash and some other elements of value, and
if decomposed are a good application to
soils that are deficient in vegetable matter.
Their value is chiefly due to the organio
vegetable matter they contain. On deep
alluvial soils it is doubtful if it would pay
well to apply them. It is a question that
may easily be determined by experiment.
Put them up in the fall or early winter,
sprinkling each well-trodden layer of a
foot thick With lime enough to make them
white. Keep the mass wet, but not
leaching. In the spring you may mix the
decomposed leaves with acid phosphate,
any convenient proportions, and also
kainit. But no beneficial chemical change
will be brought about by such a mixture,
and the same results would be attained
by making the application of the leaves
and the phosphate and kainit separately.
Iu other words, if mixed together before
applying to the soil the mixture would be
worth no more than the sum of the value
of each applied separately. Such mate
rials as leaves, muck, etc., are much more
needed by soils that are greatly worn,
especially sandy uplands.
2. If the land has been long in cultiva
tion, and is as deep as represented, it
would doubtless be well to turn il over as
deeply as possible the first time, and as
deeply as may be done with a one-horse
plow the second lime. A deep soil cannot
be too deeply plowed in the preparation
The Prize Holstein Cow.
Smith & Lamb, Syracuse, N. Y., writes
as follows: "Your readers will doubtless
be interested to know how the Holstein
Friesian cow, Clothilde, has deported her
self since she won the sweepstakes butter
prize at the New York show. May 6,
eight days after calving, she was shipped
to the show and was on the cars two days
and nights. After being in the show-ring
on Tuesday, her butter test was com
menced on the same evening, May 10.
Her milk record for the 24 hours was 63
lbs. H oz., and her butter record 2 lbs.,
thus giving her the prize. Returning
home we shipped our cattle at New York,
May 16, and in 24 hours on cars she gave
82 lbs. 4 oz. of milk. Her yield of milk
continued to increase until May 31, when
she gave in one day, in three milkings,
101 lbs. 2 dz. Since then she haa given
in one day 100 lbs. 6 oz. Two days ago
she completed a week's test of butter.

Are constantly exposed to danger from
Colds, Whooping Cough, Croup, and
diseases peculiar to the throat and
lungs. For such ailments, Ayer'a
Cherry Pectoral, promptly adminis
tered, affords speedy relief and cure.
As a remedy for Whooping Congh,
with which many of our children were
afflicted, we used, during the past win
ter, with much satisfaction, Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral. For this affection, we
consider this preparation the most effi
cacious of all the medicines which have
come to our knowledge. Mary Park
liurst, Preceptress, Home for Little
v anderers, Doncaster, Md. .
My children have been peculiarly sub
ject to attacks of Croup, and I failed to
find any effective remedy until I com
menced administering Ayer's Cherry
Pectoral. This preparation relieves the
difficulty of breathing and invariably
cures the complaint. David G. Starks,
Chatham, Columbia Co., N. Y.
I have usid Ayer's Cherry Pectoral
in my family for many years, and
have found it especially valuable in
Whooping Cough. This medicine allays
all irritation, prevents inflammation from
extending to the lungs, and quickly sub
dues any tendency to Lung Complaint.
J. B. Wellington, Plainville, Mich.
I find no medicine so effective, for
Croup and Whooping Cough, as Ayer'a
Cherry Pectoral. It was the means of
saving the life of my little boy, only six
months old, carrying him safely through
the worst case of Whooping Cough I ever
saw. Jane Malone, Piney Flats, Tenn.
