Valuable and timely suggestions.
A large supply of barnyard manure,
with which to make compost, is every
year regarded as more and more essential
on the farm. Commercial fertilizers give
so much better results in conjunction with
stall manure, than when used alone, that
every farmer is anxious to have a full
supply of the latter. He wants enough to
go over all the land he cultivates. This
can only , be had by the use of ample
quantities of litter. During the busy
crop season, he did not feel perhaps that
be had time to stop his teams and hands
to haul leaves; but for some months now
he will have ample time. A rude shelter
under which litter could be stored and
kept dry is very desirable. Thus ar
ranged a limited quantity could be put
in the stalls at short intervals, and become
thoroughly incorporated with the drop
pings of the animals. Wet leaves hauled
directly from the woods and put in the
Btalls, not only brings discomfort to the
stock, but adds so much water as dead
weight to be handled and hauled out.
Where there is a choice of oak and pine
leaves, the latter are rather to be pre
ferred; some persons regard them of little
manurial value analysis does not con
firm this view. Freshly fallen leaves of
the common old field pine contain the fol
lowing quantities of manurial substances
in a hundred parts:
Analysis of Pine. Stratc.
Ammonia (potential) 0.47
Phosphoric acid, 0.24
Sulphuric acid, 0.05
Now compare the above with ordinary
damp or green stable manure.
Analysis of Stable Manure.
Phosphoric acid, 0.50
Lime, ' 0.50
The pine straw contains about four
fifths as much ammonia, about one-half as
much phosphoric acid, about one-third as
much potash and about one-half as much
lime as the manure. Piue straw is recom
mended also because it breaks up and
mixes with other ingredients readily, and
rots more easily than oak leaven. After
the pine leaves have lain on the ground
for a long time much of their fertilizing
contents have been washed oui by rains,
and they are then less valuable. Make
pens of poles or rails, fill them with the
pine straw and cover with planks, an be
fore suggested, planks makw the be6t tem
porary roofs, especially during winter,
when they are not much warped by the
Litter the stalls now as rapidly as they
will bear it. From time to time fork up
the edges and dryer parts and throw
them on the ,wet spots. A very large
quantity of manure can be made in the
next three months it one goes about it in
earnest; and all of it will be needed to
make up the compost heaps in February.
To increase the richness of the manure,
and facilitate its rotting where much lit
ter is used, cotton seed may be scattered
in the stalls occasionally. To prevent
loss of ammonia a little kainit may be
sprinkled in the stalls ; a pound, or less,
a day to each stall will suffice. Where
one proposes to use kainit in his compost,
this is the best manner of doing it; it
will become thoroughly incorporated with
the stall manure; and thorough mixture
of its ingredients adds much to the value
of a compost. Southern Cultivator.
Tilings that we Need.
We need more pasturage for cattle
sheep and hogs more land devoted ex
ilusively to grass and fruit growing for
consumption by stock. We must keep
our stock on our own premises, and set
apart large portions of the farm for them
to range over. This can be done in most
instances without interfering with the
We need cool dairy houses and nice
cellars aud springs of cool water, all util
ized in the making of first class butter.
A thoroughly equipped dairy does not
exist in the South, where general farming
and planting is the rule. Wo need good
butter and sweet rich milk in our daily
repast. To have butter that is better
than soap grease we need dairy houses
and all the necessary appliances for suita
ble and cleanly handling of milk and of
We need graperies on almost every
farm, and, near towns, in every garden,
grapes for dessert, grapes for lunch, grapes
for jams and jellies, grapes for tarts, dried
grapes, pickled grapes, preserved grape?,
brandied grapes and grapes for wine, for
the cup that exhilerates and does not
beastialize. Concords, Catawba, Isa
bellas, &c., and that incomparable gem
of southland the Scuppernong. Yes, we
need graperies ; we need vines in every
nook and corner of the farm. Not mere
stumps pruned to death after the style of
other sections, but vines left to grow and
spread of their own free will, with plenty
of spreading room and a good support al
We need more rich bottom land for
corn and timothy ; marsh and alluvial
land for grazing ; orchards and pasturage
grasses put on the hillsides; a better
division and a more general separation of
stock one kind from auother more sowed
crops and less tillage, and we need cattle
and stock sheds, comfortable, clean aud
dry, that shall be cool in summer, warm
in winter, and always healthful.
We need, especially need, more origio
ality and less copying in our modes of
farming. Our sectional features of cli
mate soils and plants are distinct, and we
need different methods of doing things.
In a word our agriculture is peculiar and
our plans and operations should be pecu
liar too. No copyist, but discoverers we
Symptoms of Hog Cholera.
The following are such symptoms as we
have observed to attend the disease known
as hog cholera :
Coughing, falling off in flesh, diarrhoa?,
vomiting especially soon after eating.
Failure of appetite. Red and watery
eyes; ears droop, the back is humped,
head hangs low. Reddish or purplish
spots on skin along the belly and the in
side of the thighs. The hog is sensitive
to the touch, as if sore. At times consti
pation instead of diarrheal Hog seeks
the shade and lies flat for hours; no dis
position to move.
As long as they will eat there is hope.
On first sight ol symptoms give each hog
a tablespoonful of magnesia. We have
cured several slight attacks with this sim
ple remedy. A little later give quinine,
ten grains in a little meal mash. Force
the food down if the hog will not eat.
What the South Wants.
From the Southern Planter.
The following from the pen of a dis
tinguished Kentuckian, we heartily en
dorse, and such should be the sentiments
of every true Southern man:
"I am tired of hearing the depreciating
cry of "We want Yankee brains and en
terprise." What the South wants is
Southern brains and enterprise. What
the South wants is common sense and
action. The old ruling class was not and
is not a more inefficient class than the
same strata in New England. On the
contrary, history 6hows that when we ap
plied ourselves to the thing in hand we
excelled the North. We had more good
statesmen and orators than the North.
Our military men were the foremost. In
manners and taste the South, with her
smaller cities and sparse population was
at least equal, aud abroad held superior to
the North. In physical development they
are and have been superiors to the North.
Slavery prevented manufactures and com
merce, and interfered with common edu
cation, and therefore was a block to most
of the progress of modern civilization, me
chanics, arts, road!, buildings, snips, ana
all that. It prevented invention and the
intelligent use of the methods already
known. It warred against economy and
self-restraint. But slavery is gone for
ever and the road to progress lies full and
free before us. If we take the slave line
as the border of the South, we have a
larger and better surface and soil than
the North, and also better climes.
We are the place of the great world
staples cotton, corn, tobacco and rice.
There are vast fields yet to be occupied
with the sugar cane. The cotton and all
tbeee other staples should reach their
highest preparation (or consumption 1m re.
We have all the minerals of the world.
We have the clime for the best peaches,
apples and cherries', not to speak of the
banana, orange, lemon, watermelon aud
many small fruits. The vine and the silk
culture must succeed here, if anywhere in
America. The South has the best timber;
the wood of the sunny South is firmer,
stronger and more varied than in the
North, and itsgrowth more rapid. When
forestry becomes an art and culture, as it
will be, the South will be the place of its
highest success. When sorghum and the
sugar beet, the one lor 6tock and the
other for sugar, shall become the great
Btaples, and they will in time, the South
will be the place for their culture. 4 e
have also the site for flax and hemp, and
the beM wheat aud barley. There is
plenty of capital in the South for all
legitimate purpose. Where comes the
money for our foreign travel, our summer
watering places, our extravagance in
household and personal decoration? We
have enough to begin with and more will
join us if need be."

G. W. Mullis, Monroe, N. C.
Rockingham. N. C, April 0th, 1885.
This certifies that I have used the medicine
named Hornet's Nest Liniment, sold by W N.
Mullen, and am satisfied that it has real merit.
I can recommend it as a good remedy. Will
do what is claimed for it.
T. W. Guthrie.
Dear Sir : My little boy fell and bruised his
shoulder and arm so that he could not use his
arm. I used a small bottle of your Hornet's
Nest Liniment. It gave him use of his arm
after the first application, and cured him in a
short while. I have used it in several other
cases, and find it to be an excellent remedy.
J. W. Elliott, Pineville, N. C.
Oak Gkove, Union Co., N. C, Sept. 12, 1835.
W. N. Mullen : I used your Hornet's Nest
Liniment on my little boy, who was suffering
with a severe attack of diphtheria, his throat
being so badly swollen that he was past speak
ing, and it relieved him in a few hours, and
cured him perfectly well. I have also used it in
other cases and find it of great benefit, and never
intend to be without it in my house.
Respectfully, R. L Cut hbertson.
