Sowing Tfinothy and Mowing: Ozab
Editor of the Rural Carolinian: I
have been requested by several planters
to report my experiment in raising grass
the past season.
I selected a field of river bottom laud
that had been planted in corn the pre
vious year, and on which the native grass
had gone to seed, after the eorn bnd been
laid by. I bioke the land with two
horse ploughs in January, lolled it, so as
to break thoroughly tho clods, and hnr
Just as I had finished this work and
???8 ready to sow my grass seeds, the riv
er came out, and freshet followed freshet,
ttntil the land had been under water two
or three weeks. When the water left, I
was forced to break the laud again, as it
bad been packed by the water. I broke
with single horse twisters, and where
necessary I determined to plant them,
and about the raiddlo of April I sowed
rny clover, Timothy, herds Jaud orchard
grass the land being in fine order.
From the time I planted there commen
ed a drought, which lasted three or four
weeks. The seed remained in the ground
until early in May, when a heavy lall to
rain brought it up thickly, but, unfortu
nately, the rain which brought the seed
up, brought down another overflow of |
the river, which lasted until about the
middle of May. The planted grasses and
the clover were then about one inch above
the ground, and did, not appear to be
killed by the overflow. I am sure the
clover was not injured. When the water
receded and the lands dried off, tho na
tive grasses put out, and in a short time
overrun all I had planted.
About the middle of July, I began to
recover from my disappointment, and by
the 1st of August had au immense crop
of crab-gras?. In damp s;o'.s a few smart
weeds started up, but I had them cut
down with grass bjades, anp th?y were
followed by crab-gras. It rained nearly
all through August. About the 25th
started my mower, and cut about eight
acres aday, with two mules of medium
size. The grass was from four to five feet
high, and so dense that it stood erect after
being cut, and I was compelled to keep
one prime hand behind the mower to
open the track for tho mules on their
next round. I had fifty acres in grass.
I cut and saved at least 2500.000 lbs., or
5,000 lbs. to the acre, and I am sure
left one-third of the corp ungathcred.
If the season had been favorable,
should have finished cutting the crop by
the 10th of August, and would have had
a second crop to cut by the last of Sep
tember. I am now baling the hay.
put-about 400 lbs, in a bale, and use
three bands of wire to bind it. The wire
cost about ten cents to each bale, which
is cheaper than hoops of wood, an they
are put on very rapidly. I hire the
baling and pay 25 uenjs for 400 lbs. Five
hands and one mule, twenty bales each
day iu my cotton screw. I have been
offered one dollar per hundred for th(
hay-expect to get $1.50 in April or May,
1 have no doubt that our bottom lands
will produce good crops of clover or grow
any of the cultivated grasses. These
crops are growing north of us and south
of ub, as low down as middle Georgia
Planters desiring to plant grasses should
procure the pamphlet you have for sale,
entitled "Grasses of the South," by C. W.
Howard, of Kiugston, Ga. The work
all the information any one could desire.
In making crab-grass it is only neces
sary to plough, and roll, and harrow the
lands in April, May, or June. Get
teams to haul it and houses to bold it.
There is no limit to the quantity that
can be made, and the buy is good if well

A. II. COLQUITT,
In order that our patrons may be kept fully informed relative to the security and progress of
the Company, on which thousands are greatly relying for the future welfare of the families, we '
take pleasure in submitting the foregoing statement, which we trust maybe as satisfactory to
them as it is gratifying to u.?.
During tho year 1873, the income of the Company was $1,643,249,70. whilst the total outgo
of the Company for the same period was $529,006,41, leaving the net income for the year $1,114-,
183,29, augmenting the assets of the Company to $2,248,026,35, January 1st, 1874. f he entire
liabilities of the Company, at same date, embracing the reserve on policies in force nntl losses
reported and maturing, amounts to $1,76,943,385. which, deducted from assets, leaves a surplus,
as to policy-holders, of $304,046,69.
In view of the monetary panic during the four hut months of the past year, at a time, too,
when our receipts should be the largest, it is a source of satisfaction to the management and a
gratifying evidence of confidence of our patrons, that tbs Company is among the few that shows
increase of business and assets. Commencing the pa-^t success of the Company as an earnest of I
continued prosperity, we earnestly solicit the cooperation of our patrons in extending our business I

preparation, made chiefly from tbo na
tivo herbs found on tho lower ranges of
tbo Sierra Novnda mountains of Califor

aro extracted therefrom without tho uso
of Alcohol. Tho question is almost
daily asked; "What is tho cause of tbo
unparalleled success of Vinegar Bit
tens f" Our answer is, that they reuiovo
tbo causo of disease, and tbo patient re
covers his health. They aro tho great
blood purifier and a life-giving principle,
a perfect Renovator and Invigorator
of tho system. Never boforo in tbo
history of tho world has a medicine boon
compounded possessing tbo reninrkablo
qualities of YTskoar Bitthrs in healing tho
sick of every disease man is heir to. Thoy
are a gcutlo Purgativo as well as a Tonic,
relieving Congestion or Inflammation of
tho Liver and Visceral Organs in Bilious
The properties of Dr. Walker's
Tinhcar Bittrus aro Aperient, Diaphoretic,
Carminative, Nutritious, Laxative, Diuretic,
Sedative, Couutcr-Irritant Sudorific, Altera
tive, and Anti-Bilious.
Grateful Thonsands proclaim Vin

No Person can take these Bitters
according to directions, and remain long

means, aud vital organs wasted beyond

Entire country during tho Summer aud
Autumn, and remarkably so during sea
sons of unusual heat and dryness, aro
invariably accompanied by extensivo de
rangements of tbo stomach and livor,
and other abdominal viscera. In their
treatment, a purgative, exerting a pow
erful inlluence upon these various or
gans, is essentially necessary. There
is no cathartic for tho purpose equal to
l>n. J. Walk lilt's Vinkgak Bitteus,
as they will speedily remove the dark
colored viscid n pit tor with which tho
bowels aro loaded, at the sanio titno
stimulating the secretions of tho liver,
and generally restoring tho healthy
'functions of the digestive organs.

In those, as in all other constitutional Dis
eases, WAI.ICIitt'H VlNKOAIt BlTTRRS have
shown their great curative powers iu tho
most obstinate aud intractable cases.
For Inflammatory and Chronic
lthCUinatistn, Gout, Bilious, Remit

tho Dlood, Liver, Kidneys and Bladder,
those Bitters have no equal. Such Diseases
aro caused Ivy Vitiated Blood.
Mechanical Diseases.?Persons en
gaged in Paints and Minerals, such as
Plumbers, Type-setters, Gold-beaters, and
Miners, as they advance in life, aro subject
to paralysis of tho Bowels. To guard
against this, take a dose of WALKKIt's Vin

Scurfs, Discolorations of tho Skin, Damon
and Diseases of tho Skin of whatever liatno
or nature, aro literally dug up and carried
out of the system iu a short titno by tho uso
of those Bitters.
Pin, Tape, and other Worms,
lurking in tho system of so many thousands,
aro effectually destroyed and removed. No
system of medicine, no vermifuges, no an
tnolminitics will free tho system from worms
like theso Bitters.
For Female Complaints, in young
or old, married or single, at tho dawn of wo
manhood, or the turn of life, these Tonic
Bitters display fo decided an influence that
improvement is soon perceptible.
Cleanse the Vitiated lilood when
ever yon find its impurities bursting through
the skin in Pimples, Kmntiens, or Sores;
cleanse it when .von lind it obstructed and
sluggish iu the. veins; cleanse it when it is
foul; your feelings will tell you when. Keep
tho blood pure, and tho health of tho system
