Stabled Gotten Seed as a Manure
EniTOK Sot'TIIKKX Ct r.T?VATOIt:?
Just about three yeatfsago, I" made a test
on n small scale, ol'stniblcd cotton seed
as n manure for cotton, and promised in
my artiel? m your paper about it, that I
would give the result in tho fall, but neg
lected to do so. I havo now tested jth?m
thoroughly fo* two years, and think I
can confidently recommend thetu to the
farmers of the country. The enclosed
article on flic subject was intetttJcd for
your paper, but I thought I would send
it to the nearest newspaper first.
J. W. CRAWFORD.
Cold1 Spring*, Piekeus co., S. C., Feb. 14, '74.
For two years I have used this manure
(?Imost exclusively") for cotton, Applyi?g
only fifty to sevcuty-five pounds of guano
per acre, with the planted seed, in bot
tom land. ' ?? . ?'?
Previous to the dicovery of this, ma
nure, I used guano almost entirely. 'My
success with this manure has giyen the
greatest satisfaction exceeding any guano
J have tried, and I have used the' 'befcf
kinds. I will state the results of the use
of this manure.. 1 live near the noJthcrn
limit of tho cotton belt?almost tin dor
the shade of the Blue Ridge. The lauds
planted-arc very old, mostly in sedge 27
years ago, when 1 came in possession of
them. They were originally good for
this papt of the country, aud have been
planted iir eotton for 20 years, except
during the war. The yield of tho crop
hist year from 55 acres was 43 bales, of
420 lbs. This year 40 acres have made
35 bales, of 430 lbs.?Thcae crops were
made entirely with this manure, except
75 lbs, of guano to the acre, on half the
land (bottom) each year. Had the cat
erpillar not injured 20 acres of this year's
brop, the yield would have been not less
than ten bales more, which would have
been 45 bales from 40 acres. I feel cer
tain of this yield-, as the same land made
1,430- lbs, per acre last) year,, and only
750 this, which is the belter cotton year
of the two.
' The mode of making and applying this
manure is simple ami easy, but requires
attention, I will stale, in the first place,
I have four moles aud one horse, and do
not make any of it during the months of
June, July and August, an it would en
danger the health of the place.
The mules stand haltered in separate
stalls, and in eaeh one I put about 35
bushels of seed- right from the gin house,
These seed arc stirred daily w'th a ma
nure fork, mixing the excrement tborugh
ly with the seed;, every other day would
do, but is better done every dayr only rc
quiring about twenty minutes to do it.
1 lind it requires about twenty days to
get them thoroughly mixed with exerc
meat.?At the espiraSron of this time
they arc carried out nnd deposited in an
open log house, well covered,and remain
till 1 am. ready to put them on the land
Occasionally they should be thrown about
in this house to prevent burning, or fire
fanging. Burning deteriorates their
value' and i: cannot be obviated, unless
a very large shelter is used, or mixed
with somctbong else that will prevent the
escape of ammonia, which is objectiona
tic, ns it increases greatly the labor of
nanling ami applying.
1 apply them by preparing the land
j'nst ns I would for any other manure,
which should bo deep and close. I apply
about 35 bushels per acre; 20 or 25 is
enough ibr old red hit d. as they will
born the crop in dry time on this kind of
land, On low, moist land. '10 bushels or
move would not bo loo much, but when
this quantity is put on, the plough should
be run through them after they arc dc
posited in the furrow, mingling the soil
with them, so they will not present any
mechanical obstruction to the roots of
the plaid, while young und delicti to, In
fact, this is a good p'nn with manures,
but more particularly where they arc
abundantly applied. I bed on them ns
with other marure. \N hat I claim for
this manure is, shut it is the only substi
tute for gun no?that is, it is the only
manure oxecqf guano, that can be exteh
sivelv used. Ofc?>iir?o it can no* Im?
hauled and applied w easily and rapidly
ns guano, but lour mules etm haul enough
for four cr five acres at ono load, and
three hands can apply them about as
fast as one can guaivo- I use handled
baskets in 'distributing 1110%!,
Many farmers say they have nofj seed*
enough to make this manure. I reply
thatl bought no seed for last year's crop
or this, but sold over 200 bushels, and
had about this much left aftor planting
cotton this year. If 800 or 1000 lbs. of"
seed cotton aro vnade per ocre, it will be
sufficient to manure the land.
In conclusion, I will say that those my
neighbors whe* have . followed ?this ex
nmple, and those who have seen crops,
verify all I sayjabout it. If the farmers
of the country will.carry cut this plan
!nsStated, and are* not. greatly delighted
with the result, I shall be sadly disap
The general use of cotton seed applied
in tins way would ruin every guano com
pany and saue millions of dollars to the
planters. I hope I am not over sanguine
about this matter. I try to be practical.

FARMERS AND PLANTERS.
Steeping and Preparing Seeds before
This preparation,lately introduced to the Ag
ricultural wofld,appeaffr?m recent experiments
to surpass all that lias ever been attempted in
that line. It nut only contains all the elements
and fit I'oud forthc sCed in its infant state,,which
enables it to come up strong and vigorous, but
positively claim that no rust smut or blight can
exist where it is applied, and proving a certain
preventive against the Potato rot. It dissolves
readily, and forms a mucilage by which any
material can he made to adhere to the seed.
Coal Tar being a very small portion of this val
able compound to prevent the ravages of birds
and? insects,-? hut so united and prepared us to
form a dry powder, which dissolves readily,one
pound- producing one and a half gallons, or
fifteen ponnrlrt?of mucilage! On every farm there
are to he found in abundance valuable, mate
rials for rolling seeds in before punting, which
should never he neglected. These are rich dry
black earth and wood ashes, or limo,nnd should
he mixed in proportions of onu part of wood
a?iu\- ?>;? lime, to tlireo parts of earth. Ry the
aid of the mucilage, much of thi- material can
he made to adhere to each Hieil, which never
Jails to show good results. It ha* been tried on
corn, rice, cutton, wheat, potatoes, peas and all
the cereals wftli marked c flee I, none showing
any signs of rust, blight or fuiiguf where it was
applied. Put up in 6n'e pound Packages at HO
cents per pound, which dissolves and form one
and a half gallon of Mucilage, suilicicnt to roll
seed for one acre land. (100 Planters used it last
season with remarkable success,
livery Fanner and Planters should use it.
