Mr It. E. Beaver of Cool Spring town
ship, made this year from one bushel of
Peterkio cotton seed, 1400 lbs of seed
cotton. The white cotton was kept sepa
rate from the stained and made 1058J lbs
a bale of 404 lbs. lint, or about 39 lbs.
of lint to the 100 lb, of seed.
Mr W. B. McLelland of Concord town
ship, made this year 4 bales of ootton off
of 6 acres, and has 40U to suu ids. ic pic
yet. It averaged a bale to 1500 lbs. of
seed cotton and paid the toll. He used
no commercial fertilizer bat composted
well, using acid in his compost.
Mr R. P. Pope of Shiloh township,
doesn't set up for any great shakes as a
farmer, bnt he ran a two-mule farm this
year, made 11 bales of cotton on 18 acres,
and in addition to this 204 bushels of
wheat, 125 of oats and 350 of corn. He
will consequently live at home for the
next twelve months.
Mr Jonathan Davis aud son, of Con
cord township, made this year on .18
acres, 13 bales of cotton ranging in
weight from 430 to 500 lbs., using no
guano, but using in their compost 14 sacks
of acid at a cost of $36. Statesville Land
mark. Making Cream Churn Easy.
A lady friend, an experienced and suc
cessful butter maker thus explains how
she makes the butler come quickly as cold
weather approaches. She keeps the cream
crock in the cellar as cool as possible, and
as the natural result it is too cool for good
batter making. If the cream is directly
heated over the fire it is apt to make soft
batter, as every housewife knows. v bat
she does is to make a quart or a little
more of sweet milk, heat it quickly over
the fire and then mix it with the cream
already in the churn, adding enough to
bring it up to the right temperature.
The butter comes quickly by this method,
and is not made soft late in the season.
It is not a plan adapted so well to butter
making in hot weather, for then the cream,
unless kept on ice, usually needs no warm
ing. Some use hot water instead ol milk,
but the advantages ot the latter is that
the warm, sweet milk imparts a better
flavor to the butter and greatly improves
the buttermilk, besides, of course, making
more of it.
There is probably only a very small in
crease of butter that comes directly from
the heated sweet milk. Possibly this iur
nishes no butter; but it does separate the
butter particles more correctly from the
cream than is possible otherwise. The
yield of cream and butter from milk
should, under most circumstances natu
rally increase in proportion to the milk as
the amount of butter is lessened. A far
row cow, five or six mouths after calving
gives less, but richer, milk than she does
at first. But what avails this to the but
ter maker, if he or she cannot separate the
butter from the cream in which it is en
closed. Adding warm sweet milk seems
to entirely remove this difficulty, and has
many other incidental advantages.
Utilizing: Coarse Fodder.
Corn fodder, straw, and even marsh
hay at times, are the sole dependence for
feeding. In such cases these inferior fod
ders may be made up by the addition ol
the richer foods which can be purchased
and used at such a profit as will be satis
lactory to the dairyman. And in feeding
these coarser fodders, the use of roots with
them will be found exceedingly valuable.
The succulent roots being almost wholly
digestible, aid very much in the digestion
of the coarse fodder; and for winter feed
ing a supply of mangels or sugar beets
will be indispensable for the most profit.
In a similar way the use of malt sprouts
steeped in water, which makes a sweet
semi-liquid pulp of an agreeable odor and
taste, mixed with cut straw and oorn fod
der, has been found to keep up the yield
of milk; and with a slight increase in the
mixed meal, or ground grain food, to pre
vent any deficiency in the yield of butter.
Well cured corn fodder, or 'the stalks of
the corn crop, cut before frost, so as to
preserve the greenness and sweetness of
the leaves, has yielded, with the addition
of a peck of sliced roots, as much and as
good butter as that made from the best of
Some Sound Advice.
Mr B. F. Perry of Greenville, S. C,
read an essay at the Inter State Farmers'
Encampment, at Spartanburg, that is
chock full of sound sense. In concluding
Mr Perry says :
"Lastly, the farmer must appreciate the
importance of persistent, industrious ap
plication to his farm. No business man,
whether mechanic or merchant, can ex
pect to make a success in his vooation
without unremitting application. The
push, energy and devotion to business
displayed by the active business men of
live oities is a standing reproach as well
as an example to us farmers. Keep up
with the progressive age. Talk about no
money in farming, when Dr. Parker of
Colombia, made on one acre 203 bushels
of corn; Mr Wharton ol Georgia, four
bales of cotton; Mr F. E. McKenzie of
Greenville, fitty bushels of wheat; Mr
Wylie of Lancaster, 180 bushels of oats,
and Mr C. T. Lowndes of Charleston,
1,000 bushels of turnips. Gentlemen, the
trouble is in us; not in the land, but in
Feeding Milk Cows.
Will some of the readers of the Culti
vator give me some information about
feeding milk cows? What is btst to leed
them on when failing in milk? I have
started a dairy business with cows raised
in upper Georgia and South Carolina, and
running them without calves for nine
months, they are now failing. I fed first
four months on bran alone. I found they
fell back. Since then I have been mixing
and changing; sometimes bran and then
corn meal, ground feed corn and oats. I
have a pasture but it is rather hard, and
all my changes seem to do no good. I
salt regular; maybe too much salt. My
cows go too much to fat and not to milk.
If any one will give some dots about feed
ing milk cows, 1 will be thankful. iv. (j.,
Answer. Cows ought to be abundant
ly supplied with "roughness" in the shape
of good grazing, nutritious hay or green
forage, as much as they will eat. Corn
meal or coin in any form 11 not a good
milk-producer, but goes to making fat.
Wheat bran is good for milk. Southern
Mr John M. Stahl suggests to the
fruit-growing readers that they will, in
general, find it bard to use a more
economical fertilizer than wood ashes

Shelter the Fowls
Writing to the Home, Farm and Fac
tory, on the above topic, Mr E. W. Geer
says: When tne young broods are
weaned and leave the coops, where the
mother hen has hovered them for several
weeks, they look for a higher roosting
place; they go into trees, open sheds,
barn-lofts, and all such place?. But now,
as the autumn rains and cold, frosty
nights are coming, we should see that all
fowls are under shelter, both old and
young. Sometimes during the hot sum
mer months the older fowls take to roost
ing in trees, but now, as they are moult
ing and some of them almost featherless,
they should not be allowed to roost oat.
Such houses as. we are now building for
our fowls are very good and cheap. We
take poles 8 feet long and build a pen,
then with others 12 feet long, we build
another around the first on .three sides,
north, west and east, leaving a space two
feet between tbem to fill in with wheat or
oat straw, lay some poles across the top
and cover with straw, putting on a good
thick layer, and build up to a point like a
hay-stack. Tie seme poles together at
one end with wire, and throw them across
the lop to keep the wind from blowing the
straw away. Now for the front, which is
facing south and single-walled, cut a door
three feet wide and six feet high, and also
cut a plaoe for a window, single sash.
Take some lime mortar and plaster up the
cracks that are left and you will have a
warm, bang shelter for your chickens that
will preserve the highest combs of the
Leghorns with but'very little cash outlay.
A Good Farmer.
Mr Julius J. Clamp ot Due West town
ship, is one of the successful young farm
ers of Abbeville county. He made with
one horse this year ten bales of cotton,
and all the corn and wheat that he and
his horse can eat next year. If we had
many such farmers as Mr Clamp this
country would be prosperous, no matter
whether we get any more railroads or
build factories. We will thank somebody
to explain why other farmers make only
three or four bales of cotton to the horse,
and have to give, a lien for their corn and
flour next year. This is Mr Clamp's third
year at farming. The first year he made
seven bales, the second, nine, the third,
ten. Abbeville S. C.) Banner.
With such an example as this belore bis
eye, it is not surprising that Col. L. L.
Polk eloquently and earnestly exclaimed:
"Young men of the South, let us turn our
faces towards the rising sun and with
hopeful energy, with wilting hearts and
ready hands, rejuvenate the grand old
homestead ot our ancestors, and by fideli
ty to principle and unswerving devotion
to duty, transmit it, with all its endearing
associations and cherished traditions, lo
those who are to come after us, with the
lamp of liberty, burning with tindimmed
splendor upon its sacred altars."
HIT Mr James II. Daniel a practical
farmer of Cedar Grove township, and a
close observer of things, says: That the
sovereign remedy for the prevention of
the "Yankee Cabbage Bug" is to thor
oughly swim in water the cabbage and
turnip seed, that the egg and imperfect
seed will float leaving the pure seed,
minus the egg; sow these and yon will
not be troubled with the bugs. Mr Daniel
says that he adopte this plan every year
and he is never pestered. Hillsboro Re

March 19. 1887.
Is one of the most fatal scourges which
afflict mankind. It is often inherited, but
may be the result of improper vaccination,
mercurial poisoning, uncleanliness, 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 bottles of Ayer's Sarsaparilla I am
aud, for the past year, have not found it
necessary to use any medicine whatever.
I am now in better health, and stronger, '
than ever before. O. A. Willard; 218
Trcmout st., Boston, Mass.
I was troubled with Scrofulous Sores
for five years; but, after usin a few
bottles of Aver's Sarsaparilla, the sores
healed, and I have now good health.
Elizabeth Warnock, 54 Appleton 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 remedy failed, until
I used Arer's Sarsaparilla. By taking
three bottles of this medicine the sores
have been entirely healed, and my health
is fully restored. I am grateful for the
good ihis medicine bus done me. Mrs.
