Ilroom corn Is a species of sorghum
nrown especially for its lops which are
?s? (i jn manufacturing brooms. The
crop is one about which Inquiry is
frequently made by farmers and the
following is written in answer to such
questions, n Is not a meat money
crop, not more so than cotton If equal
to it. and requires more in the way ol
equipment tor its handling, more la
bor at harvest time, anil more skill
in preparing it for market than does
the cotton crop. It is a crop in which
the profits depend very largely upon
the quality of the product offered for
sale, the price ranging from up
to about $100 per ton acording to the
quality. Five hundred pounds of cur
ed brush per acre is considered a fair
The best quality of broom com must
he straight, of good length, line tex.
ture and cured in such a manner as to
be a good green color when put on
the utarkel. There are two kinds
grown, one known as the standard
broom corn and the other as dwarf
This latter is grown extensively in
the central west.
In order to secure the quality ol
stalk mentioned above it is very im
portant to have well bred seed and
it is almost impossible to buy such
seed in tl.pen markets. One going
into the business of growing the crop
begin at once to select seed with tin1
view of improving the plants from
year to year.
Any soil that will mow sorghum
will produce broom corn, and the fer
tilizer applied need not differ from
that used on (he corn crop when the
same quality of land is cultivated.
Since the object in view is a uniform
product in quality and time of matur
ing, meat care should be taken in pre
paring the soil. It should be Well
plowed and then harrowed, until a
tine bed is secured.
I.ate planting is. best on account of
the fact that tin' young plants make a
very slow growth when the weather
is at all cool, and the crop will come
into hand at a season when there is
not liable to be much rain. The seed
should he fertilized with a planter
that is adjusted to drop a few more
seed than you want plants (four td
live pounds per acre) and under such
conditions of soil and season as will
insure nood ami quick germination.
Cultivation similar to what the corn
crop requires is all that is necessary.
Weeds and grass should always be
kept down and the Boll mulched with
loose earth by frequent cultivation
with small toothed implements. On
land that will produce thirty or forty
bushels of corn per acre one stalk
of broom corn should bo left every
four or live inches and thinner as the
soil becomes less productive. It Is
important to have a full stand, as
there is a meat tendency to sucker
when the plants are loo thin on the
laud and the brush from sinkers is
rarely of any value, and is not ready
to harvest with the remainder of the
The tops- should be cut eight inches
below the bead when the bloom is
falling and before the seeds are Piled
out, if the best quality of brush is ob
tained. The brush is immediately
battled out and the seed stripped off
the same day. The seed stripping, on
a large scale, is done by machinery
that may be purchased from manufac
turers. Improvised methods like the
curry comb with long teeth or a steel
spiked comb attached to a frame Or
side of a box answers very Well Whore
there Is only a small quantity of brush
to be stripped.
The curing, in order to preserve the
green color, must be done under a root
and away from the sunlight. The tops'
from which the seed have been re
moved are jpvoud In layers three Inch
es thick on latticed racks where there
is tree circulation of air. When no
juice can be squeezed out of the stalks
by twisting them, the curing is com
plete and the brush should be removed
from the racks. This will require
from four to six weeks. It is then
bulked for a period of ten days or
two weeks to go through ii sweat when
it is ready to be bnled. The tops
should be very carefully sorted into
different grades, as mixed brush never
sells well. The baling is done with
a horse power press. The tops are
lapped tgether in the middle of the
balo and the butts stand out nt each
end. Itales usually weigh about three
The crop requires very earful and
prompt work at every step and consld
erable outlay in the way of equipment
is necessary. If one haa had no ex
perience. In the growing of broom
corn, It would be well to start on a
small scale and learn things from ex
perience about the business that It Is
Impossible to got any other way.

HOW TO (THE RHEUMATISM.
It Is an Internal Dlscnsc and Requires
an Internal Remedy.
The cause of Rheumatism and kin-;
died diseases Is an excess of uric
acid in the blood. To cure this terrible
disease this acid must be expelled and
the system so regulated that no more
acid will be formed In excessive,
quantities. Rheumatism is an internal
disease and requires an internal reme
dy. Rubbing with Oils ami Liniments
will not cure, affords only temporary
relief at best, causes you to delay this
proper treatment, allows the malady
to get a firmer hold on you. Liniments
may ease the pain, but they will no
more eure Rheumatism than paint
will ? hange the fibre of rotten wood.
Science has at last discovered a per
fect ami complete cure, which is call
ed "Rhoumacide." Tested in hundreds
of eases, it has effected the most mar
velous cures; we believe it will cure
you. Rheumnclda "gets at the joints
from the inside." sweeps the poisons
out of the system, tones up the stom
ach, regulates the liver and kidneys
and makes you well all over. Rheu
maeide "strikes the root of the dis
ease and removes its cause." This
splendid remedy is sold by druggists
and dealers generally at 50c. ami $1

Most everybody rode on horse back
to the church at the "Grove. The
young men were on the look <mt to
help down and hitch their Bwectheurt's
horse, after preaching to escort his
girl to the mounting block.
Tow Acklllg watched the door for
the appearance Of Vera llix. and
walking >i|i to her. asked for the priv
ilege of Boeing her home. She turned
and kicked out one toot at him. and
walked off. Tom followed, and she
turned on him with the exclamation,
"why don't you leave, don't you see
I have already kicked you?" Vera had
heard the girls talking so much about
kicking the boys she though she would
have to do some of it. And in her
simplicity, she gave Tom some of the
real shin-kicking in order to turn
down the young man. What a nice
time the young folks had running
horse races! Better than riding now
in rubber tired buggies, with fifteen
men noddies, with hardl) room enough
for two feet, let alone four feet.
