I'AIISI AND PLANTATION TOPICS.
From the Rural Carolinian.
deled plants and their teachings.
A friend who had devoted much atten
tion to vegetable physiology, especially
in its relation to agriculture, lately
showed us two interesting specimens of
dried'plants. One was the common
oat, which the botanists class among
the Graminece, or grasses, and the other
vetch, a leguminous plant, allied to the
garden pea, the bean, the lupines, and
n the clovers. The plants had been grown
in flawex-pots, from which the ball of
earth had been taken and carefully
washed away from the roots, leaving
them unbroken and entire. The oat
plant, or, rather, olump of plants, pre
sented a mass of roots whioh would be
likely to astonish the nnobserving farm
er and] opbn his eyes to the necessity
of giving his crop breadth and depth of
soil, as well as something to feed upon.
The bulk and weight of the roots was,
we think, two to one at least as com
pared with tho parts growing above
ground. In the votoh, on the contrary,
the proportion was reveraed?the roots
making not more than one-third of the
entire bulk. Now the vetch, like the
olov&gg, js Jfpund to bo exceedingly rich
in nitrogen, and therefore very valuable
as a green-soiling crop. Whon plowed
under, it enriches the soil by supplying
the roquired nitrogenous plant food, j
Where and how this and similar plants j
get the vast amount of nitrogen, whioh
they store up to enrich the soil, is, per- I
hap:?, an open question. It was former-1
ly believed that plants like vetch, gar
den peas, buckwheat, etc., whoso roots
are comparatively small and of limited
extension, absorb ammonia directly
from tho atmosphere through their
leaves. Lato experiments seem to show
conclusively that this is not tho case.
They get it through the roots exclusive
ly, but it still appears certain that it
must be the atmosphere that supplies
it. It is (in its elements) in the air, tho
rains and the dew whioh permeate the
soil,; and in that laboratory of nature,
and decomposed and mado available in
the form of ammonia. These facts, thus
briefly and imperfectly stated, teach
several lessons of immense practical
value to tho farmer. l.'That different
olasses of plants have different modes of
feeding, as distinctly shown by their
roots. 2. That -certain leguminons
plante, and probably all of them, in a
greater or less degree, ore great pur
veyors of nitrogenous plant food, and
should therefore be made use of as
green soiling crops to onrioh tho land
for the grains and tho fibre-bearing
plantb, tho limo and other nub elements
being; cheaply obtainable to complement
them. 8. That in view of the fact that
the fertilizing elements whioh are elab
orated in the soil come so largely from
the atmosphere, it is of the utmost im
portance that the land \)o well broken
up and the soil kept loose and porous
by judicious1 and-frequent cultivation,
no that air and moisture can freely pene
trate it. ,HHJ
IMPROVEMENT OF CLAYEY SOILS.
One of the principal defeots of olayey
BoilB, especially where they rest upen a
subsoil of the samo nature, is the ex
cess of water which is held in thorn.
The only effectual way in a majority of
oases to get rid of this is by thorough
nnderdraining. This draws off by im
perceptible degrees all tho exoess of
water and opens the soil to the free ad
mission of the air, which in its passage
through it imparts warmth and suoh
fertilizing gases as it may contain.
Open drains or ditohes, though less
effectual, are useful. In some oases
water furrows', terminating in some
ravirie'oY 'flit?h, serve a good pupose.
Lime is exceedingly useful as an ameli
orator of olayoy soils, iudnoing chomi
oal combinations, the mechanical eiTee.
of whioh is to break up tho too groat
tenacity of the clay, while it adds, at
the samo time, an element of fertility
which may perhaps bo wanting. Gyp
sum, or piaster of Paris, has tho same
effect in a still moro powerful degree.
Ashes, coarse vegetable manures, straw,
loaves, ohipa, etc., aro also very useful,
adding new materials to the soil, and
tonding to separate its particles and de
stroy thoir strong cohesion. Olayoy
lands must never be plowed whon wet.
CLOVER AS AN ACCUMULATOR Ol-'NITROOEN.
Wo find it stated that Dr. Voolokor,
by a series of tho most exhaustive an
alyses of soils and of plants, has discov
ered and established the fact that an
immense amount of nitrogenous food
ncoumnlates in the soil during tho
growth of clover, especially in tho sur
face soil; amounting, inolnding that in
the olover roots and tops, to thrco and
a half tons of nitrogen per aoro; equal
to four tons and a third of ammonia.
If this be a fact, the wonderful effects
of olover, votoh, and similar plante on
the soil cease to be mysterious, and tho
farmer need no longer buy ammonia in
his commercial fertilizers, bnt only add
to the soil the limo and other ash ele
ments required, whioh can bo choaply
furnished in available forms.
CHEATED?THE BROMU8 BE0ALIMJ8 SWIN
Bometimo ago a speoimen of wheat,
in whioh there were a few grains of
chess, or cheat, was presented to the
Philadelphia Academy of Natural
Soienoes. It seemed at first as if the
scientists wore to bo confounded and
naturo made to con trad iot herself. The
speoimen laid boforo the learned men of
the academy was a head of wheat, to
which small branches of chess were
united, and apparently in n vory natural
manner. The specimen was finally re*
ferred to the " microscopical section,"
who report that the thing was a trick.
The ohess was nearly inserted into the
wheat stalk, and held there by a sub
stanoo" which tho committee believe
to be gum tragaoonth."
winter PLANTING in the south.
In ordinary seasons, our winters in
the lower south, or South Atlantic and
Gulf Ooast regions, are so mild that the
hardier vegetables grow finely, and re
main uninjured during the coldest
months?December and January?-but,
occasionally, severer freezes occur, and
tho gardener must'be content to take
some risks, even in the ease of tho
hardiest speoieB. This, in tho limited
operations of the family garden, he can
well afford to do, for failure costs mere
ly a little not unpleasant labor and a
few seeds, and success rewards him
with an early and excel lent crop. An
excellentoontrivanoe for securing plants
in rows against frost consists in two
boards, a foot wide, nailed together at
the edges in the form of a threo-cor
nerod trough, made of light thin
boards; these are easily handled, and
a few such protectors will be found very
useful. - It is bettor that tho ends
should be closed, though the more shel
ter of the lateral pioees will bo sufficient
in cose of light frosts. In planting
seeds of any kind at this soason of the
year, it is best that tho rows shoul d be
slightly elevated abovo tho general sur
face, and tho covering be light. A good
way is to saw on the surface, and then
scatter or sift over them a little vegeta
ble mold or light soil.
Cabbage WonM.?After trying vari
ous remedies, we have found boiling
hot water from a watering-pot, the
simplest, easiest, and most effectual
modo of destroying the cabbage worm.
If applied quickly and not too long on
the leaves, it produces no injury. It is
easy repeated as ocoasion requires.
It may not bo possible to proouro
sand enough for mixing with large
quantities of roots intended as food for
stock. Tho next best thing to bo done
is to keep them seoure from frost, light
and air, and to prevent heating and fer
mentation by the ueo of air-flues. Oar
rots, rutabogaB, beets and mangolds
should bo stored before they are dam
aged by frost, as thoy never keep well
after boing frozen.? Western Mural.
Family Glue.?We make our glue
in the following way; Crack up the
glue and put it in a bottle ; add to it
common whisky ; shako up, cork tight,
and in three or four days it can be used.
It requires no beating, will keep for
almost any time, nnd is at all times
ready to use except in the coldest
of weather, when it will require warm
ing. It must be kept tight, bo that the
whisky will not evaporate. Tho usual
corks or stoppers should not bo need.
It will become clogged. A tin stopper,
covering tho bottle but fitting as closely
as possible, must bo used.
The United States of America pro
duce annually about 275,000,000 bushels
of wheat, or about 6} bushels per cap
ita. Of this amonnt they consume
over 230,000,000 bushels, or about 5J
bushels per capita; and havo about 42,
000,000 surplus left for sale, The
United Kingdom of Great Britain nnd
Ireland produces annually about 05,
000,000 bushels of wheat, and consumes
100,000,000 bushels, or about 6} bush
els per capita. It has therefore a de
ficit to purohaso, amounting to as much,
of wheat, as all it produces, or 95,000,
000 bushels. Thus, England has two
bushels of wheat to buy where wo have
ono to sell.
Staiu Carpets.?To prevent the pilo
from separating at the edge of the stair
and wearing off, pads are usod ; these
aro mado of a low grado of cotton, cov
ered with tho choapest muslin. A quilt
or comfort that has soon sorvico will
answer the purpose of stair pads. In
additiv, u to increasing tho leaso of use
fulness of tho earpot, tho pads provont
noisy clattering of feet, aud, in ense
tho baby should fall downstairs, tho
injury rocoivod would bo materially
lessonod. Whon first laid down the
oarpot should bo several inches longer
than needed, that it may bo disposed
of after each shaking so that n fresh
placo may oome to all tho edges. A
wisp or small diiBting broom is tho best
for sweeping stair oarpots. After thor
ough sweeping n wot cloth may bo used
to good advantage in removing all dust.

PREPARING FOB WAR.
A. Special Alssiago from tho President?
Recommending an Appropriation for
The president sent the following
message to the senate and honae of
In my annual message of December
1, 1878, while inviting general attention
to recommendations made by the secre
tary of war, your speoial attention was
invited to the importance of the prep
aration for war in the armament of
our sea-coast defenses proper. This
armament is of vastly more importance
than fortifications. The latter can be
supplied very speedily for temporary
purposes when needed. The former
cannot. These views gain inoreased
strength as years roll by. I have now
again the honor to call special attention
to the armament of our fortifications,
and the absolute necessity for the im
mediate provision by congress for the
procurement of heavy cannon. The
large expenditures required to supply
the number of guns for our forts, is tho
strongest argument that can be ad
duced fcr a liberal ssnusl appropria
tion for their gradual accumulation.
In the time of * war suoh preparations
cannot bo made.
The constant appeals ' for legislation
on tho armament of fortifications, ought
no longer to be disregarded, if congress
desires to prepare for important mate
rial, without whioh the futuro must in
evitably lead to disaster. This subjeot
is submitted with the hope that the con
sideration it deserves may be given it
the present session.

Dr. Walker proclaimed that he had pro

the sinking system and euro every form
of disease not organic, the inorednlons
