What a Milionare Said About Half a Century Ago. The. News and Courier rpro sis liiis e nu-mber e -o .2dicle from Mr. Geo. . swritten fifty ea which he now says e has no reason to change: In upper Georgia we have the mountain ranges producing luxu riant native grasses and wild pea vines to feed the "cattle on a thousand hills." I know that the -erroneous opinion prevails with many that our climate and soils are not adapted to the cultivation of such grasses as can be made into good hay. This is quite a mistake. I have seen the best meadows in New England, but nowhere have' I seen grass grow more luxuriantly than in Georgia. It is to be regretted that this im portant branch of Southern agri culture is so much neglected. The cultivation of grass is a sub ject of vast importance to our people. We have thousands of acres of land, too wet for grain and cotton, that might be sown down with grass and yield a handsome profit to the farmer. No grass has succeeded so well - in Georgia as the Herd's grass. It flourishes on wet soils and reclaimed swamps, but will thrive on most soils;. makes an excellent spring and winter pasturage, and can be mown twice in one year. This valuable grass is more exten sively cultivated in Habersham County than any other section of the State. It was introduced into Nacoo chee Valley by Major Williams, *in 1835. The Major has tried the celebrated Bermuda, Meai, Guinea and other grasses, but found none equal to the Herd's. The farmers of that valley under stand the value of good hay and hiave more than a hundred acres of fine meadow. Herd's grass is easily propa gated; is perennial and, when once introdluced into good soil, will flourish with a little care for years. The land intended for meadows should be thoroughly .cleaned of swamps and roots, then ploughedl and harrowed. T~he grass seed should be sown with oats, broadcast, afterward harrowed and brushed in. March is a good month for sowing. The oats will protect p The young grass from the hot sun; cut the oats, grass and weeds as close to the ground as possible. 2 You will not get much hay the first year. Meado~ws are often injured by pasturing, espec~ially L in wet weather. and allo~wma WHAT'S ON YOUR a FEET yfill you with pain and anguish ed-may make you look ill kmpt. it glad and to make you look wcll. we're pretty sue to salt.

During the winter months turn the 8 bran sace soi etie from standing wit#r after the 1st of March. Harrowing in the fall j is beneficial. When the time for mowing e arrives remember you are to 1 "make hay while the sun shines." I Let each mower be followed by a 9 boy, whose duty it is to take up C the swath and shake it out as thin as possibfe where it grew. e In the evening the hay should be a raked into winrows, and after- i wards put into cocks five or six j feet in height. If the weather is d good the hay will be ready for stacking or housing in two or three das. It is a great saving t ityunder shelter, hence the necessity of large barns. Intimately connected with grass growing and hay-making is the e daiy business. At a future time E I my ofera few hints upon this t subject. My father established in the mountains of Georgia the first cheese dairy; in the manu facture of cheese he had fifty1 head of fine milch cows. Let our men of the soil awake from their Rip Van Winkle sleep, be true to themselves and we can and will be an independent people. ~ Ever yours, G. W.W. To Re-organize Farmers' Alance. e At the recent State farmers' institute th'e following resolu- C tion looking to the reorganization I of the Farmer's Alliance was passed: Resolved, That it is the senti ment of this meeting that we go home and enter into the work of a thorough reorganization of the C Farmers' Alliance on a non-parti- I san and puely business basis, a and that ahose who have never affiliated with the order are cor dially invited to assist.

Under the above head Edito Petty of the Carolina Spartai makes the following wise sugges tions that are applicable also t< the farmers of Fairfield county The luxuriant growth of pea vines, late corn and grass hai made many farmers feel as i they would have a great abund. ance of food for horses and cattl Some of them are flattered witi the idea that they will makb mough for two 'years. The idei hat there is going to be s ibundance made th's fall will nake many farmers indiffement, some of them will neglect theb )lain duty. Others will let old ashioned lazinesw dictate thei >lans. Corn will be scarce in the .ounty before planting time next ipring. Many farmers will have o buy. Hay will also be in de nand. There will be two farm srs with a short supply to one vho has any for sale. Thousands >f sacks of flour will be hauled ut to the farms. At least oner bird of the farmers will have to >uy seed oats. This is the con lition that confronts the county s-day. To meet it and rise superior to let every farmer prepare his md well and sow wheat enough D supply every family on irm. Let him sow oats enough > feed his stock at least four ionths. A rich lot sown in rye ill give early pasture or two Irly cuttings of fine hay. But ist now let every one go to work ith grass blade and cut all the rass he can find. On everyfarm, Eter all these rains, there, any bunches of grass that ' urn out fine hay. Even second 6te grass is much better for a mgry mule than stable logs and >rse troughs. We saw a lot of ass a few days ago in whi x ini o swamp ass and a fer reeds, that was about 15 inches igh and the land was smooth. L and with a good, sharp blade, ould cut a half ton a day on that At. Next March that half ton rill be worth $7.50 at least. 'here are many barren stalks of orn, especially on the early lots. f they are cut, well shocked and ured, they make fine feed. These uggestions are made for careful, adustrious farmers who need a ittle exhortation to make them .o their best. rood Changed to rPon Putrefyint food in the Intesties roduces effects like those of arsenic, nt Dr. King'.

I have shown in a prvious rticle in this paper that the kouth could, with sufficient labor nd capital, produce ten times as iuch cotton, for one item, as it ow produces. This alone would qual the value of the present gricultural output of the entire ountry. When all mankind be omes as civilized as European eoples are now and wear as iany clothes, it will require 50, 00,000 bales of cotton to supply lem. If the South keeps up its iresent proportion of the world's otton supply it will sell 38,000, 00 bales, which, at present rices, would be worth more than 11 our exports of wheat and ieat.
