This is the time of year when absorb
ents should be used freely about tbe sta
ble. Fermentation goes on rapidly these
days. Noxious gases are soon created
from tbe excrement, both liquid and solid.
The DQDcrent odor of ammonia renders the
air of the stable unfit for tbe breathing of
animals confioed. It will soon rot tbe
best leather, and from this one may judge
whether it be fit to go into tne lungs 01 an
animal. An odor that is offensive to the
nostrils is dangerous to the welfare of the
animals that breathe it; and what borse
atabla is not offensive to the senses?
Even with doors and windows all open it
is almost unbearable. Not only are tbe
animals injured by breathing each air but
there is a great waste of fertilizing ma
terial attending it. When tbe air reeks
with ammonia a great waste of that valua
ble element is going on. Purity and
economy both demand its retention io its
proper place. This can only be done by
tbe tree use of absorbents in the stable. For
this usesomethiog that will absorb and re
tain both liquid and gaseous manures I
place muck at the head of the list for this
purpose. Its absorbtive capacity is some
thing marvelous. It will bold tbree
times its own weight of liquid matter, to
sav nothiner of wbat it absorbs. It id
valuable of itself as a manure, containing
a rich supply of plant food only eecond in
comDleteness to stable manure. Add to
this its value as an absorbent, and .we
have a truly valuable auxiliary to the ma
nure heap In this muck absorbent. It
should be taken out of the bed and well
cared 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 shovelfuls
scattered over tbe floor behind the horses
every morning after the stable has been
cleaned will keep tbe room pure and
sweet comparatively. 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 id a
good thing to have about tbe premises in
quantity. Store away a few barrelfuls at
least for the hen-bouse. Nothing can
excel it for this place. Tbe increased
value oi the manure pile will much more
than pay for the labor of providing ab
sorbents, lor much liquid and gaseous ma
nure is not allowed logo to waste.
Weevils in Grain.
Numerous remedies have been tested
and recommended for weevils in grain
bins. Once the weevils are in tbe grain
as certain a remedy as any is probably
bisulphide of carbon introduced into the
bio, which is then covered to confine the
vapor. An objection urged by some
against the use of bisulphide of carbon id
that tbe vapor arising from it is very ex
plosive, and therefore careful handling is
required. Aniseed is one of tbe old reme
dies. This is placed near an infested bin
and is said to attract the weevils, aud
these can then be destroyed. Millers re
sort sometimes to kiln drying to destroy
In this as in many other cases the best
remedy is a preventive. When possible
avoid storing grain in bius that have been
infested. When it is not practicablelo
change the place of storage' fumigate tbe
granary with burning sulphur. Fumiga
tion should not only be done before the
grain is placed In the bins, but repeated
in tbe course of a month or two after it
has been stored. An abundance of light,
with thorough cleanliness in the mill, will
be found beneficial. Millers advise white
washing the grain bins inside and out,
and washing the floors occasionally with
hot water. Expose the wheat to the
light by frequently stirring it or pouring
from one bin into another; this will also
prevent its becoming heated. The weevil
is adverse to light and air, hence tbe ad
vice to frequently expose it to the light,
with ample ventilation.
Farming that Pays.
Every farmer should aim to raise all
tbe farm products needful for domestic
use first. The independence of farm life
lies right there. He grows every supply
for his table, so far as bis soil and climate
permits, under his own eye. He is de
pendent on no one for the necessities of
life, or even for the luxuries of his table.
Every variety oi fruit suited to his locality
should be produced for his own use, let
him, live near or remote from the city.
Then let him increase the acreage of every
variety that pays in the market to his
ability to handle it without loss his
losses will often over-balance bis profits.
It is not wise for tbe grower to put him
self at the mercy -of others. If he- does,
he will often find their tender mercy
cruel. They will let his perishable pro
perty go to waste unless they can secure
the lion's share of tbe profits.
Besides grain crops and slock growing
as a branch of farming, every farm
adapted to it should have growing on it
an orchard of every variety of fruit de
manded by the market at paying prices.
Do not ran so much to one kind of fruit
that you would suffer heavy embarrass
ment if it fails. All kinds of fruit seldom
fail in one year.
Chicken cholera, writes W. Emerick of
Illinois to an exchange, is a disease of the
liver, and may be cured by different reme
dies. But prevention is better than cure.
After losing our chicks we dosed those
left with everything .recommended and
still they would die, but for five years we
have kept two boxes in the hen house,
about two feet square and five inches
deep. One is filled with dry ashes, re
newed occasionally ; the other with
slacked lime, made wet when put in.
The latter soon dries. It is then broken
up and renewed as often as needed. Feed
more wheat, not so much corn. We J0e
no more chickens now. W e believe this
is a preventive as well as a cure. But
clean water, clean quarters, and clean food
will save hogs as well as chickens. This
is our experience, for we never have
cholera now with our chicks or among our
hogs, while our neighbors who do not pay
strict attention lose more or less every
year. Have also a trough with palt and
ashes in it, under cover for the hogs, and
they wiliest the mixture freely. "It ill
do tbeoi good."
15" The advantages of spreading ma
nure from the wagon as it is drawn out
are a saving of labor and a more even dis
tribution of the double salts (ammonia,
potash, phosphate, etc.,) in the soil by
rain. If the manure is heaped on the
field and gets a heavy rain before spread
ing, the ground nnder the heaps receive
an undue share of the best part of the ma
cure, which not (infrequently tender these
spots barren for a season or two,
The President of our State Agricul
tural Society, W. G. Upchurch. Esq.. has
been interrogated by Dr. Satchwell of
Pender, as to the best breeds of btooded
cattle, especially in relation to tbe modi
fications. We commend o the attention
of farmers and stock raisers tbe following
reply of President Upchurch :
Raleigh, N. C, Oct. 28, 1887.
Dear Sir: Your favor of the 25th inst
received. In reference to your questions
regarding the value of various breeds ol
stock in our State, I must say that my ex
perience is quite limited, having dealt
almost exclusively in Jerseys. .
Before buying I gathered some in
formation from agricultural papers and
stock raisers, and concluded to adopt the
Jersey. It is my opinion that they give
more milk and butter to tbe same amount
of food than any breed within my knowl
edge, and in case of surplus stock, they
meet with more ready sale, and better
prices than any breed I know of.
It is true that tbe bulls are more
vicious and considered very dangerous.
They cannot be trusted.
The Jersey, when properly cared lor,
stands exposure to beat and cold remark
ably well and is very hardy.
As regards blooded cattle's adaptation
to ordinary pasturage for forests, I don't
think thev will prosper so well. I don't
know of any breed, blooded or native,
but that deserves better treatment than
to be left to rove in the woods amongst
ticks and snakes. I found fifteen years
before the stock law wa9 passed that I
could not afford to raise cattle and allow
them to run at large.
The Holsteiu has only recently been
introduced into our community, and our
neighbors who have tried them seem to
be partial to the breed.
Ibe Guernsey is a good cow, some
larger than the Jersey, aud one of my
friends is making a success breeding and
dairying with her
The Ayrshire is not so handsome, but
very hardy. They are copious milkers,
good beef cattle, and altogether valuable.
However in all herds, as in everything
else, some are better than others, I have
feebly attempted to tell you what I know
of cattle-raising, and hope it may be of
service. Very respectfully.
W. G." Upchurch.
JSf" One of tbe largeet wheat fields in
the world is that of ex-Congressman C.
F. Reed of Stanilaus county, California.
It consists of 10,000 acres in one unbro

Joaquin River. This will give 400,000
bushels which will load ten large vessels.
A yield of 40 bushels per acre.

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 uounty Merchants is
tracable to their "first purchase." How? I will
tell you. By being lured by men representing
'.Northern Houses to go there for their hrst
purchase, and many a one in doing so is thus vii
tually "busted" before getting home. Why?
1. Buying in Northern Houses where the
Goods kept are not selected (likemiDe) to suit
this section only, the chances are that the new be
ginner will buy the most unsuitable stock for
his section; hence he has bis sbelvts full, yet
none to suit his customers. Fatal mistake Mo. 1.
2. In the excitement aud rush of Noitueru
Market he buys twice, perhaps thrice, as much as
he can and ought to.. Fatcl mistake No. 2.
3. The injudicious and disproportionate quan
tities brought too much of some thing-) and not
enough of others (generally the most needful)
the new beginner finds out, too late, ihat while he
has more Goods than he ought to have, yet uius-t
order more Goods to help sell off the badly
bought ones, thus being loaded to 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
my record to take good care and protect you, and
you will say, as hundreds of others have done, I
owe my success to you.
