The terfa is supposed to be poetical,:
and may be so; but does anyone know
why the deer runs away?

was a hudtlel of shanties and the over

of these lines was crossing what was,
then represented on the 9.ehool maps.

light, though the sun had not yet risen.
when the wazons started. Soon the
leader stoppeddn.si.(Lnce, and every one
saw on an eminence or "roll" a splen
did antelope, standing and looking at
the wagons as though surprised. Not
a sound was made on either side until
the silence was broken by the sharp
crack of a rifle. The antelope fell, but
only for an instant, and then bounded
away. Arrived a: the place where he
eell, a little blood was noticed, and,
'rising the "roll," the stricken deer was
seen making his way not from, but to
the herd, some 40 in number. Then
was seen a ratlier curims sight in the
early light. Catching sight of the wag
on, the whole herd moved away at a
,,mart pace. but not at a panic gait.
The wounded annial had reached the
berd, i,ut was not wanled; for two or,
three bucks made for him, and as long
as we watched them chased and horned
the poor animal until presumably he

some reason peculiar to antelopes, they
wanted no "stricken deer" about and

ROTATION OF CROPS
ADVANTAGES OF THE SYSTEM
IN COTTON 'CULTURE.
Valuable Suggestions for Southern
Farmers by Professor Massey,
of the North Carolina E.
T has been said that the nature of
the cotton crop forbids its neiug
grown in a re,-ular farm rotation
as is practice: among good far:n
ers in sections where money crops
are grain and stol1. TiL utter
fallacy of the notion that this can be
the case with any annual crop has
been repeate-.lys town from the :x
perience of those who hn.ve brokcn
away from 4he o?f time imethod?s of
cotton growing, and have shown that
cotton fits as weil into an improvinw
rotation of crops as nay other of our
hoed crops. It is true tha its use in
a ro*t:on necesittates a rather longer
rotation than where there i; but one
hoed crop in the rotation, for where
cotton is grown there corn must al
ways of necessity be grown also, an.
to properly locate two hoed crops -n
a rotation, so that both can htve a
fair chance for success, involvos a
lengthening of the series of crops.
This is a matter of no disadvanta7e,
however, as it gives more divers:ty to
the farming, and opens up more o:
portunities for the profitable keening
of stock on the cotton farm. We
would .lay .it down as a rule that no
progressive farmer in the South shon
disregard, that two Clean cultitAcle
crops should never follow ea:,h
other in successive seasons on the
same land, unleEs a leguminas
crop can be gotten in between them.
We will suppose that the farmer in
the coast plaia, the true cotton blt.
will adopt for his crops cotton, cora
and winter oats. Now, the triv i:e '
in a rotation of erops is to so nau
his rotation RnI fari intion as tI
the largest amonut of the money er
cotton, per acre, while steadily
creasing the fertility of his soil. 1e
will study the art of u,iu, ferti;
izers so that he can get by in!au o
the rotation he uies, not olyw
cost, but a an ata! pronit, the m
expensive portion of a high grade
tilizer the nilrogen, which w-hea

he farms without sush ae :
rotation, in the old one crop pl. :. h
mut buy the nitrogen, and maus t'Is
be handictpped in growing cotton la
competition with a neighbor, who
farms while he plants, with the at e I1
cost in the crop of the nitrogen his
neighbor makes a protit in getting
from the air while he pays a heavy
price for it on the market. It is easy
to see then that while his neighb:or
may find a margin of profit in the "ot
ton crop, he may at the same 1rc
lose money in the culure, an i ot
only lose money on the crop, but ad
that his land is growing poorer and
poord.r at the same time. And thi's is
today the condition of the great m c
of cotton growers of the South At
lantic cotton country. Now let us
assume that the farmer is going to get
out of this destractive system,cr ratu
er lack of any system, and that he
sides cotton. And he is not going to
do this because of some misty notion
that he has that he should diversit
his crops, and grow some other thing
besides cotton, just in the same wa
thct he has been growing cotton.,u
that he has determined to use te
other crops as a meens toward
the development of his land for the
more profitable culture of cotton. Hec
is not going to grow a lot of corn
this year so as to be able to say that
he has grown enough to iast for say
eral years while he grows cotton, buit
he is going to use these extra crops as
any business man would use the stocli
he has for sale-to help pay his -x
penses. He will get ria forever of
the idea thati his cotton is the u:iy
thing to get money out of, but will
turn all his surplus of any kind. into
money, and thus tend toward the a: e
ing of the cotton crop a surplus erop)
for profit. The change from apat
ton which has been run for years in
the single crop of cot ton until it will
only bring cotton by the appii- on
of a complete fertilizer, to a form~
where a variety of crops are grown in
a systematic manner, cannot be done
all at once unless the owner has a suir
plus cash capital. But it can be Ooue
gradually by any man of industry and
perseverance. The one thing which
our people need to learn is the value
of concentration in farming, and to
realize that a few acres heavily fer
tilized and well cultivated will give
more profit than many lightly dressed
and scratched over. If, therefore,
the man who wishes to change his
practice will drop off about half th
area he usually cultivates in the cot
ton crop and use on the remainder all
the fertilizer he has been accustomed
to use on the whole, he will have a
fair chance to make more clear money
than he would on the whole, for t-he
extra dose of fertilizer will not
only give him a better crop of~
the staple, but will also hicil)
in the adoption of the rotation we
prpose. We will suppose that he
does so, and in August, on his welt
caltivated and enriched acres hesrows
al among his cotton seed of orimison
clover at rate of fifteen pounds per
acre, and if hy any means he c'-n a:
ford to buy a few hundred pounds of
acid phosphate and potash for a top
dressing on the clover in the fall hie
will be that much further ahead, and
the nmoney will be invested where it
will pay a better percentage than in
bauk stocks. We will assume that ne
is~ cioug to keep some stock to a'id to
h: profits of his farming and Lo fau s
ishi manure to lessen the need
ijureaSed fertiizers. The clover tw i
give hi:m, if treated as we sugzes,
fine crop ot hay in April or Mg
wich he will of course save for sico
feeding. He can then plow toe stub
ile at once and sow the cow peas
broadcast, and as soon as well fte
with mature nods turn in the ho.:s,
for you will surer3v want to ra:se por::
as a matter of food encl prof:t in far.,
ing, and the hogs will use the peas
proitably as they can be used in any
other way. After the hogs have r?
e ed and grown fiS on thez pear. t-m
them oil to finish on corn and pliw
the land for winter oat usine on th
oats aout 400Q pounds per acre of th
606 pounds of acid phosphate to 100
of muriate of potash, the previous
I crops of peas and clover having put
an abundance of ammonia in the soil,
and paid for the doing of it in fatten
ing the 'hogs, so that you are now
savdd the cost in the fertilizer. The
chances are that you will at once get a
heavy crop of oats. As soon as the
oats are off sow another crop of peas
on the broken stubble to be cut
later for hay, and in August
all among the peas sow crimson
clover again, to be pastured in the
fall and winter after the pea vine hay
is saved, and kept closely pastured
whenever the weather Will permit un
til time to prepare it for the cotton
crop. By this time there will be alit
tle excess of nitrogen for the cotton i
crop, and the potash and acid phosphate
should be used to balance the ration
for the cotton and to insure again a
good stand of clover in the cotton. In
August all among the cotton sow
crimson clover again, and in the win
ter haul all the home-made inanure on
the clover, and in early spring, as soon
as the clover is in bloom, mow it for
hay and at once plow the laud for corn,
anti do not be afraid to put the plow
pi,Ut down deep if your sibosoil 2:
e'ar. Cultivate the corn wel, but
.illow and do not hill it. After the
la-t working sow crimson cl)ver !:eed
again, to be cut for hay the follow
ing spring and to be followed by yeas
in cow hay, and then to be put in or
der for oats in the fall and thus repeat
I the rotation from year to year. By
the time you have gotten around to
the cotton on the second rotation you
will find that you can grow the crop
without buying any fcrtiLizers. and
thereafter if you add a fair tupply of
:cid phosphate and potash to your
pieas and clover, and ime the soil when
it comes in corn, you can keep up the
soil to a high state of productiveness
of the sale crops without direct fer
tilization, and if. you feed alt the for
a-e grown, you will have enongb
. homn-made manure to cover the corn
jield every year. Then when you tind
that your soil is improving fast, do
rot be tempted to put, it all in cttou,
b!ut stick to your test and keep up the

Log-Rafting on the Pacific.
The latest big loa raft experiment on
the Pacific coast has proved a great
success, the first entire success in the
history of such attempts. The raft
was built on the Columbia river, and
ctntained between six and seven mill
ion feet of lumber. It was made of
piles so closely bound together that not
a timber of the whole great bulk was
movable. The raft was started froni
Oregon late in July, in tow of the
ste-amer Mine,,la, and arrived in San
Francisco on Aug. 2, aftpr as smo-th
a trip as though it had floated down a
plneid river instead of over a con
siderable stretch of the Pacific ocean.
It would have taken several score of
ships to trasport the lumber, and the
owners of the raft have cleared some
thing over $22.O by the success of the
experiment. Several similar rafts have
nen staried on a simildr tr;p. but, while
one or two have been a modiled suc
cess. several of the largest have gone to
pieces in stormy weather and been a
total loss.-Chicago Chronicle.
