The Abase of Lands.
From the early settlement oi this coun
try, especially in Tennessee, tne custom
among farmers has been to select the best
available lanas tor image, to Keb u
oat ot them in shortest time, and then
clear others and put them through the
tame oourse. No care in the timber, nor
regard for the wearing out of lands was
exercised. The result is growing mani
fest in worn-out fields, gullied hillsides,
reduced area of first-class agricultural
lands, and decreasing yield per acre of the
staple products of the Boil. The time has
come when the farming people will find it
difficult to find new farm lands of most
desirable kind and locality in their virgin
state, and inviting to be cleared. The
time is near when increasing population
and increased demands for increased farm
products, coupled with the decreased
extent of productive lands, will call with
an imperious voice for a hall in the pro
cesses of farming, and reversal of the
methods of the past. Instead of aban
doning fields after a few years of murder
ous cultivation and seeking for new
grounds in the dark fores.-, we will have
to recognize the fact that we must take
care of our present farms, and by judicious
tillage and good treatment reBtore to them
life and vigor, and the fertility and pro
ductiveness which they originally pos
sessed, and which they have so largely
When our forests were limitless; when
land was more abundant than people, and
so cheap as to be had for tne entry and
occupancy; when a winter's clearing
would substitute a new for a partially
worn field, there was no thought of a pos
sible end to the system; but now when
tobacco growers are looking with keen
eyes for eligible spots for plant beds, and
the owners of the best farms in the State
find rail timber exhausted and their fields,
year by year, yielding less and lens, the
necessity is more and more apparent that
our methods must be changed; aod that
instead of abusing our landed heritage,
as in the past, we must preserve and im
This .cannot be done in a moment. It
will be the work ot time to make it uni
versal; but those who begin first will be
first to reap the fruits of the required in
evitable reform. Restoration will be the
watch-word of farmers in the future. We
have taken from the lands so much with
out recompense, they demand in a voice
that must be heard and heeded, a return
for their liberality. Tennesses Farmer.
Absorbents in the Stable.
This is the time ot year when absorb
ents Bhould be used freely about the sta
bles. Fermentation goes on rapidly these
days. Noxious gases are soou created
from the excrement, both liquid and solid.
The pungent odor of ammonia renders
the air of the stable unfit for the breath
ing of animals confined. It will soon rut
the best leather, and lrom this one may
judge whether it be fit to go into the
lungs of an animal. An odor that it of
fensive to the nostrils is dangerous to the
welfare of the animals that breathe it;
and what horse-stable is not offensive to
the senses? Even with doors and win
dows all open it is almost unbearable.
Not only are the animals injured by
breathing such air but there is a great
waste of fertilizing material attending it.
When the air reeks with ammonia a great
waste of that valuable element is going
on. Parity and economy both demand
its retention in its proper place. This
oan only be done by the tree use of ab
sorbents in the stable. For this use some
thing that will abBorb and retain both
liquid and gaseous manures. I place
muck at the head of the list for this pur
pose. Its absorptive capacity is some
thing marvelous. It will hold three limes
its own weight of liquid matter, to say
nothing of what it absorbs. It is valua
ble of itself as a manure, containing a rich
supply of plant food only second in com
pleteness to stable manure. Add to this
its value as an absorbent, and we have a
truly valuable auxiliary to the manure
heap in this muck absorbent.
It should be taken out of the bed and
well cured before using. It is a good plan
to have out a year's supply ahead. A
good quantity should be kept stored con
veniently by the stable for use at all times
and seasons. A few shovel-fuls scattered
over the floor behind the horses every
morning after the stable has been cleaned
will keep the room pure and sweet com
paratively. Next to muck, comes the dry road-dust.
This can be gathered in quantities almost
any time and stored in a good dry place.
It is a good thing to have about the prem
ises in quantity. Store away a few bar
relfnls at least for the hen-house. Nothing
can excel it for this place. The increased
value of the manure pile will much more
than pay for the labor of providing ab
sorbents, for much liquid and gaseous
manure is now allowed to go to waste.
Shrinkage of Corn.
Prof. Scoville of Kansas has been ex
perimenting to ascertain the shrinkage in
corn after it is ripe and placed in the
crib. Reports of his test are given in the
Kansas City Indicator, from which we
learn that six different varieties, weighed
Oot. 6, and stored in a room without any
artificial heat, showed an average shrink
age of 15 per cent thirty days after stor
age. One variety lost a little over 8 per
cent. On Feb. 28, 145 days from date of
gathering, the lot was weighed, and the
average loss on the whole amounted to
21 J per cent, and in one variety, called
the mammoth, the loss was exactly one
third, or 33 per cent. From the above,
the farmer may make a very close calcu
lation as to the advance in price of corn
which he must obtain in spring to make
it equal to the loss sustained in shrinkage
An ingenious plan to save a dy
ing pear tree was adopted in the garden
of L. M. Chase of Boston. The mice had
girdled the tree so that it seemed bound
to die. Mr Chase planted four small
trees around it, and close to it, cat off the
tops, pointed the ends, and, making in
cisions in the bark of the pear, bent the
small trees, and grafted them upon the
dying trunk. They all lived, and that
tree draws its nourishment from the small
ones. This season a bushel of handsome
peart were taken from it.
dT The advantages of spreading ma
nure from the wagon as ilia drawn out
are a saving of labor and a more even dis
tribution of the double salts (ammonia,
potash, phosphates, etc.) in the soil by
rain. If the manure is heaped on tb
field and gels a heavy rain before thread
ing, the ground under the heap receive
an undue share of the best part of the
manure, which not unfrequently render
these spots barren for a season or two.
Do you want to see the salvation oi the
South ?" asked an amateur farmer of us
yesterday morning, as he marched into
our sanctum, with a couple ot ounaies o:
dark green foliage.
We confessed our desire to see such
and he laid upon our table the bundles of
foliage, with the remark :
"There it is Spanish groundpeas."
He then informed as that it was the
cheapest and best teed for stock that
could be raised, combining both forage
and corn. The stalks grow from two to
three feet in height, are heavily leaved
and succulent. On the roots are grown
the peas, which are larger than the ordi
nary ground pea, and are more proline.
The stalks grow up straight and branch
iog, instead of trailing upon the ground,
as do those of the ordinary groundpea.
When the peas are matured the stalks are
palled up, the peas clinging to the roots,
and are thrown into small piles, where
tbev soon cure in the sun, making a most
excellent fodder, while the peas have all
the fattening qualities of corn. As a food
tor cattle it cannot be excelled, and is
especially fine for milk cattle. These
peas can be grown upon tne poorest
ground, and indeed seem to do as well as
when richly fertilized. Where they are
grown in large quantities the practice is
to mow off the vines, cure them into hay,
and then turn the hogs into the field to
fatten upon the peas. Ii desired the peas
can be easily stripped off the vines after
they are cured and can be readily sold in
the market at $1 per bu&hel.
Our enthusiastic friend made the fol
lowing comparison between raising corn
and Spanish peas upon poor ground:
"On ground that will raise ten bushels of
corn to themcre, forty bushels ot peas and
two tons of forajre can be raised. Inti
mating the corn at 75 cents per bushel,
we have $7.50, while the loader is proba
bly worth $2.50, making a total ot f 10
Estimating the peas at 50 cents per
bushel, we have $20: and the forage at
50 cents per hundred, we have $20, mak
ing a total of $40. And in this I have
really estimated the peas at only half
their market value. 1 tell you it is a big
thing, and one which our farmers will
do well to investigate." Amencus (tra.)
A good farmer should never de
pend upou his neighbor for what he can,
by care and good management, produce
on his own farm. He should never beg
fruit while he can plant or graft trees; he
should never borrow vehicles or tools
wheu he can make or buy them; he should
never refuse a fair price for anything he
wants to sell; he should never undertake
to cultivate mora land than he can till
thoroughly, for while well-tilled land is
constantly improving, hall-tilled laud is
growing poorer every day. He should
always have a supply of dry kindling
wood or summer stove wood ready for his
wife, if he wishes to avoid chilling looks
from her, he should never have a brokeu
pane of glass in his house, or a gate that
will not shut. His taol-liouse should be as
clean as hi wife's sitting room, and he
should have "a place for everything, and
everything in its place."
Charles Reed was squeezed so
badly in the California wheat corner that
he had to give up 10,000 acres of the beet
farming land to the Nevada bank in order
to protect his paper. If now the bank
were compelled to give it up to actual set
tlers, would it not be a gain?

la a pertinent article on swine
feeding the National Live Stock Journal
says: "Now the true way to fatten pigs,
at any season of the year, is to give a por
tion of coarse food, each as turnips, beets,
carrots, potatoes, oooked olover hay or
grass, the last being the natural food of
the pie and in summer always at nana.
If we take all the boss fattened in the
United States in a year, and change the
time of fattening from cold to warm
weather, one half the grain now fed will
make all the pork. This would be a sav-
iner of food, at least, to the amount of
175,000,000 per year."

A Word to New Beginners.
After 33 years of close observation in business,
I am fully convinced that by far the greatest
number of unsuccessful County Merchants is
tracable to their "first purchase." How? I will
tell you. By being lured bv men representing
"Northern Houses" to go there for their first
purchase, and many a one in doing so is thus vir
tually "busted" before getting home. Why?
1. Buying in Northern Houses where the
Goods kept are not selected (like mine) to suit
this section only, the chances are that the new be
ginner will Duy me most unsuitable biock ior
his section; hence he has his shelves full, yet
none to suit his customers. Fatal mistake No. 1.
2. In the excitement and rush of Northern
Market he buys twice, perhaps thrice, as much as
he can and ought to. Fatal mistake No. 2.
3. The injudicious and disproportionate quan
tities brought too much of some things and not
enough of others (generally the most needful)
the new beginner finds out, too late, that while he
has more Goods than he ought to have, yet must
order more Goods to help Bell off the badly
bought ones, thu9 beiDg loaded too heavily at
the start you can imagine the rest. This much
and more could be said, but a word to the wise
How to avoid all this:
I have now been in business near you for 33
years, commenced from the stump up at a cross
road and grown up with the country, know ex
actly what and how you ought to buy, and I
point (with just pride) to my record as a man
and merchant, and say come to me and I pledge
mv record to take good care and protect you, and
you will say, as hundreds of others have done, 1
owe my success to you.

Are constantly exposed to danger from
Colds, Whooping Cough, Croup, and
diseases peculiar to the throat and
lungs. For such ailments, Ayer's
Cherry Tectoral, promptly adminis
tered, affords speedy relief and cure.
As a remedy for Whooping Cough,
with which many of our children were
afflicted, we used, during the past win
ter, with much satisfaction, Ayer'a
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
lmrst. Preceptress, Home for little
anderers, Doncaster, Md.
My children have been peculiarly sub
ject to attacks of Croup, and I failed to
tind any effective remedy until I com
menced administering Ayer's Cherry
Pectoral. This preparation relieves the
dUnculty of breathing and invariably
cures the complaint. David G. Starks.
Chatham, Columbia Co., N. Y.
I have used Ayer's Cherry Pectoral
in my family for many years, and
have found it especially valuable in
hooping 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, Plain ville, Mich.
I find no medicine so effective, for
Croup and Whooping Cough, as Ayer's
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.
