umns 6t )!cur paper that a Farmer wish
es to know the best mo.de of underdrain
iug. Fifteen years ago I mndo an un
derdrain by nailing two planks together.
One, of. said planks 1 inch thick by 5
iu6iaefl Wide, the, other 1 by 4. I placed
thro*? brackets across the open side and
laid it in the ditch with that -side down.
I then broko all joints of tho underdrain
"with small prices of boards and filled up
the ditch. Said drain is running just as
freely, and is as good to-day as it was
when I first put down.
I put down about 1000 feet last spring
of tho same kind of underdraining. The
ecst is small and the drainage good.

THOUGHTS FOR THE MONTH.
Unlike the lost, the present mouth, calls for
great industry arid activity on the part of the
farmer. Harvesting crops already made, plant
ing those of fall and winter nnd preparation of
land for next year's crop, such as turning under
wcedfl, pea vines &c, now demand attention?a
word of caution u> our young friends who have
little fanning experience. Cotton picking will
bounder full headway by the end of the month.
It js excellent ride never to let the opening get j
much ahead of the picking?keep close up with
it. The. reason is two fold) 1st, tho sooner it is
picked after it opened, the cleaner nnd nicer it
will.be, and the less danger of being beaten out
and lout by storms; 2d, the days are now long
and WAitM and a band can pick much more
m a day than in the short and cold days of Oc
tober and November. When cold weather sets
in cotton picking is one of tho most disagree
able jobs to ba done on tho farm. Cotton
picked now, will be green and damp?not fit
lobe put up in bulk nor to be nicely ginned?
in bulk it will heat, ginned it will "knap," that
isgatliw in little knots, a feature greatly ob
jected to by purchasers. The only renfody is
to sun it?that picked in tho forenoon should
bo!>prciul in tho sun all the afternoon?that
picked in tho afternoon not having the dew
upon it may be put away a* once, if not packed
in large heaps.
To avoid risk of lire, ginning and packing
should keep pact? with the pickii?;?and the
bales as form as packed distributed in different
places. Tho gin house is the most dangerous
place to keep chiton; experience since the war
has shown thai intentional ->r accidental Arcs
n?o most apt to originate there. It lias greatly
surprised us to observo tho numerous instances
during tliovpast flvo years whero farmers have
lost their entire crops by keeping it ginned or
unginncd in their gin houses?the number of
such cases being, wo believe, larger in Georgia
the past winter than in airy previous year, If
prices are at all satisfactory the safest and per
haps the best plan is to sell its fast as it can be
prepared for market. As said just now, the
danger from fire is diminished, the cotton
weiglurWell, and the money it brings can bo
used at once to pay honest debts, or'put'at in
terest. I Farmers as a class are far behind mer
chants and other town people in "turning their
money over." Wo havo known than to keep
hundreds and thousands of dollars in the liands
of their commission merchants for months and
sometimes years, losing, the interest entirely?
fearful that if loaned out, they could not get it
when they wanted it. Of course prudence
should be exercised in the matter, but there is
no good reason why farmers should keep
money unproHtably locked up more than other J
As soon as corn is dry, gather and house it?
the longer it remains in the field the greater
the quantity which will rot. Some of the ears
will always be on the ground, others will be
standing erect, so that the rain can penetrate
them and still others.exposed at the end from
attacks of birds and other animals. These if |
gathered promptly may be savsd. If house
room is ample, store away in shuck: it will keep
better and the shucking will, be good work for
rainy days in winter. Besides time cannot bo
well spared from cotton picking to shuck it
As opportunity offers gather peas?now is a
good time to pick those intended for seed if]
ripe. Whippoorwill peaa sown early, are ripe]
by the lBt of August or sooner. Will some one
who has seen the matter fairly tested tell us
how many bushels in tbo hull will yield one of
Oats sown last autumn were badly weather
killed?in the first place it was too diy for
them to make much growth before cold weath
er, and the first cold was eudden and very severe.
The winter al?o was one of the coldest known.
It would not, therefore, be fair to judge of the
certainty-of fall oats by last winter's experience.
Our own observation is that, properly managed,
it is as sure as any crop we raise. Some un
certainly attaches to all. Corn" is eminently
uncertain, cotton often fails and spring oata are
very unreliable. We urge our readers to sow
full crops of oats and to do it during this
month. Every day of delay after the middle
ofScplember increases tbo uncertainty of tho
crop. At the risk ol being tiresome, we repeat
tho conditions of success; prepare the land
well. ? If not already rich, make it bo. It is
useless to sow fall oats on poor land. On such
land they are almost sure to be winter-killed?\
manure will carry them safely through. Select
a variety not liable to rust. Sow ip drills and
fill the drills in part only, when covering the
seed; this protects the plants from cold and
from being lifted out of the ground fly frost;
during the dry weather graze moderately .with
sheep or calves until cold weather sets in* and
in the spring give a moderate top-drcssmg of |
somo ammoniatcd feitilizer. If they should
fail it will be known in time to sow the same
land in spring oats, which can then fall heir to
all the preparation and manure applied.
Whenever the ground is damp enough, two
horso turn ploughs should bo kept constantly
going, burying the weeds before thoy have ma
tured their seeds. If bands cannot bo spared
from the cotton field biro extra liands enough
for this purpose?no work on the farm pays
better than fall ploughing. It is a luxury to
work in the spruig, land well turned in the
fall, it is so loose and mellow.
A Priceless Receipt for Farmers.
? Every farmer who has to fenco Iub land
kuowB too . well how quickly posts planted in
the earth become rotten, especially in a damp
spot. All of them will welcome the following
process to prevent rottenness, a process as
wonderful in its effects as it is Bimplc and ab
most costless. It is taken from Lc Bicn Public,
of Dijon, Franco.
Take linseed oii, boil it and mix it with char
coal dust until the mixture has tho consistence
of an ordinary paint. Give to the posts a
single coat of the mixture or paint before plant
ing them, and no farmer, even living the ago of I
patriarchs of old,-will live long enough to see f
the same posts rotten.
"Home years ago I discovered the way of |
rendering wood moro durable in earth than
iron itself," says the author of tho communica
tion, "but H seemed to mo so simple, and so
inexpensive, that I did not think it worth
while, to mako much ado and fuss about it.
Po3ta of soft wood thus prepared wcro removed
after remaining seven years in earth, and wcro
found an Bound as when they were planted,
The only precaution to take is to ubo only
well dried posts before covering thorn with
tho charcoal paint."
Tho above receipt is certainly cheap, and
seems to bo well worth tbo trial. If what is
said of tho efficiency of that Bimplc and cheap
(about two cents per post) process be only half |
true, certainly it would save yearly millions
of dollars to tbo farmers and telegraph compa
nies. For it is said that the farmer, oven in.]
his teens, who will plant posts having received
n coat of this Perpetuity Post Paint, will never
live long enough to scu tho same post rotten.
BUSINESS THAT WILL PAY
from $4 to $8 per day, can bo# pursued in your
own neighborhood; it is a rare chance for those
out of employment, or having leisure time;
girl* and iw?ys frequently do as well as men.
