Mow ft la Hhown ou o. Farm In iii or^la Som? -
Illing for Kvery Farmer lo Read.
(From Ibo Atlanta Constitution.)
In roplying to inquiries elsowhore,
mention is niaelo of a recent visit to Ute
farm of Mr. Orme, near West Point,
Georgia. It is an historic farm, the first
terracing of laud in thc manner now so
gcucmlly practiced having been done
there. A former owner observing that nu
old hillside ditch ruu nearly on a level,
and which had become obstructed, tilled
up and overgrown with weeds and grass,
bad caught tue washings from above and
saved the soil, conceived the idea that a
narrow bcd or dani run on a leve w uld
do the B0?1Q thing. Ile prece ' d to
construct some of these, and thinking
that the edge ot' n terrace more than
three feet high would l e very incon
venient in a field, located Ut om at Mich
distances apart that the difference in
level between two successive cues should
bc just that amount. Subsequent ex
perience has shown that he hit upon thc
very best distance. When Orme subse
quently purchased thc tann, he quickly
perceived tho value of the discovery, und
terraced all his lund as rapidly as it was
brought into cultivation. Tho result is
simply marvelous. Without a hillside
ditch on the place, and. entirely through
the agency of terracing, steep' hillsides,
which were formerly defaced by great
gullies, have changed uno smooth, level
terraces, susceptible of highest cultiva
tion. Whero the lines of level had been
correctly run, the results nero perfect;
in a few instances, incorrect running had
caused slight wash, s. We saw terraces
which wt re established some fifteen
years ugo. Tho .<oil had accumulated on
their upper sides until the intervi nmg
surface had become almost or quite level,
just as it appears in yards and gardens
where the work is done with spade and
A little bod ulong tho line ot level is
thrown up by two furrows of a large
plow, the centre of tho bed not being
disturbed and remaining firm. This
strip, about a foot wide under the bcd,
is very important, as it prevents the bed
from being cut through by heavy rains
before the growth of grass and weeds
have strengthened it. To facilitate this
strengthening, grass seed aro sown on
the boils as soon us they are thrown up
blue grass perhaps the best tor thc pur
pose. Nothing moro is required bid to
repair any point through which water
may have cut before the bcd was wei:
established, to mow down every year thc
weeds, bushes or briars that may have
sprung up, and to plow well down t<< thc
upper edge of the terrace border to keel:
it from widening too much. Thc lo wei
edge of the border should be kc pt nicelj
trimmed by running the plow near it,
but care should be taken never to under
mine it. If these rule- aro observed, tin
uncultivated terrace bord .r will not ex
ceed a foot and a half in horizon'a
width, though its vertical height m.rj
reach th rei feet.
Such is thc process by which a broken,
hilly farm has been held firm against tin.
ravages of water, and which, by judicious
cultivation and manuring, has beeu
made one of the most beautiful and val
uable in the country, ll thc terrae,
border or beti can only bo held until it
becomes linn and tilled with roots. UH
battle is won. If it is broken, promptly
repair it, and as Mr. Orale's experience
clearly demonstrates, you will finally
succeed. His land is now no mon liabh
to wash than thc most gently inclined
planes. The manure put upon it is in
no danger of being carried into thc sea,
He holds both soil and manure firmly ii
his grasp. Pointing to tho soil whicl
has been held by the terrace border, alu
which, in some cases, hau accumulate!
to the depth of two and a half or th rei
feet, Mr. Orme very pertinently asked
What would have become of that soil i
only hillside ditches had been present'
Would it not all have been washed inti
and carried away by those ditch sV Wi
could not answer no. Our faith in ter
races has been greatly strengthened bj
inspecting this tarin. They have bool
tested-testeil by prolonged time (fiftcei
years i, tested on deep declivities aud ol
gentle inclines, and tested oil a variety
of soils; in each and every case thc vcr
diet is, successful.
