AGRICULTURAL. Pasture and Hay Grasses. The study ot the more important graaaes for hay and pasture lauds, and of the artificial formatioo mod treatment ol natu ral or artificial, permanent and temporary meadows and pastures, and of the intro duction of the same into the State, was early recognized as one of the moat im portant questions the rarm could take up, and the growing interest manifested in our work shows the importance attached to the subject by our farmers. Although the subject is a good one in itself, and worthy ot great effort, there is danger, as in all new undertakings, that the efforts, being wrongfully applied, may fail of the desired ends and bring disap pointment and loss on the individual worker, and more or less discredit upon the subject. Therefore a few words of warning and a very brief survey of the subject and of the line of experimentation we intend to pursue may be in order. We want, first, a grass, or mixture ot grasses (and clovers), thai will give ns a big return for our outlay, either for soil ing or hay. This will usually be only ob tained from an anuual or biennial plant and necessitates a reseeding every year or two: Second, a grass, or mixture of grasses (and clovers) that will furnish a moderate return for our outlay, in grazing or hay or both, which under proper treat ment will stand by us in all seasons, and even improve from year to year, raising the value of our land, as it surely will, to $100 or $150 per acre. Let us decide which of these we want and work up to it. We are all pretty well acquainted, or ' think we are, with the management and rotation merit of orchard grass and red clover, timothy and red top, but with us they are nearly all better suited to alter nate husbandry thiu for permanent occu pation ol the laud, and as we have no sys tem of rotation of crops, we are left every two or three years with a piece of land we should like to keep in gras, but are compelled to break up if we would get a proper return f rom our laud for the money invented. The question is olten asked, "Which is the most valuable grass?" or "What would you ad viae uie to put in?" This depends First, upon what the grass is intended lor, whether for hay, pasture or lawn, and tor what kind of stock. Second, upon the soil, and, Tnird, upon the climate. There is little doubt that, considering all conditions ol soil and climate in this State, the most -valuable grasses we have for Iny or pasture are Bermuda, crab and Johnson gras, although there are many who consider it little less than a crime to introduce or encourage either of these. But in spitu of the lack of encouragement, and iu the face of every opposition from the cotton planter, these grasses have come to stay, and if attended to will prove of great value when stock alone is considered. Like most of the grasses, they rauai have the best land on the farm and be well treated to be seen at their best. It is admitted and urged that on a coitou plantation or other farm where these grasses cannot or will not be con fined to their respective fields they must not be introduced; but when they are in troduced and well oared for, they are per manent and yield large crops. For such farms or farmers as do not want these grasses, there are other grasses aud clover? which, if grown together and well treated, will form a pasture or meadow that will last for years. But here we come to the artificial formation ol a permanent meadow or pasture, a sub ject of which we in this State know little or nothing. In the western part of our country there are large areas of natural pasture consisting mainly of one or two grasses, aud some ot the lamous ox-pastures of England are said to consist main ly of perenuial rye grass and white clover, but the English meadows and pastures generally contain at least leu or twenty of the valuable grasses and clovers. In the artificial formation ol a perma nent meadow or pasture, there is great difference of opinion among writers in re gard to what grasses to use. In practice and in the natural meadows timothy, or chard grass, English rye grass and the clovers have usually a prominent place, but there are writers who condemn the use of any of these iu a mixture for the permanent occupation of the land. In deed, the same difference of opinion exists in regard 'to others of the valuable grasses, depending probably upon the soil and cli matic conditions which prevail. On ordi nary pasture land all admit the great value ot meadow fescue, meadow fox-tail, and generally of orchard grass, tall meadow oat, timothy, Kentucky blue, red top, yellow oat, sheep's fescue, crested dog-tail, English rye grass and red and white clover. Land containing a mixture of all these grasses could be used for early grazing, then a crop of hay taken, and it would then afford grazing for the rest ol the year. The crested dogstail and sheep's fescue are chiefly valuable for grazing sheep, and these, with hard fescue and white clover, will make a good sheep pasture, and would perhaps be the best pasture for our sandy lands and gravelly hillsides. For hay alone we believe a mixture of promise would be orchard, tall meadow oat and English rye grasses and red clover, as they are all valuable grasses, and on the separate plots of the pure grasses on the Farm facing the Hillsboro road they blossomed together and were cut at the same lime, Hay 10 and 18. But we believe, after hearing the evidence of what has been written of late years, that this mixture would be better placed in a rotation of crops, where it would oc cupy the land some two or three years, aud not in a permanent meadow, although this might depend largely upon the soil and climate. Of the other grasses grown on separate plots on the Farm, Italian rye was the earliest, yielding a cutting on April 27 of about two tons to the acre of hay. (This weight will likely be changed when we figure the yield on an average water basis of all the grasses.) Another cutting was obtained from this grass May 26, with fair results, and we are likely to get a third cutting by the 20th of June. ' Next in order of earliness came the or chard, tall meadow oat aud English rye grass and red clover, cut on the 16th and 18th of May, as above. These should have been cut s few days earlier, but they were saved for visitors to the lostitute to tee. The meadow fes cue waa out May 26, at least two weeks after the above were ready to out. Tim othy and red top are coming in blossom together, and will be out about June 15. Of the Kentucky blue, Texas blue (not headed dbt yet); Johnson (just comirp; into bloom Juno 13) ; Bermuda and crab grasses and Lucerne, set out in separata plots' last fall, we cannot say rauob, as it takes two or three years for any of them except the orab crass to get well estab lished. The fowl meadow grass is not beaded out yet. The other varieties of grasses and clovers on trial at to farm were mostly seeded this spring, and not much will be heard from them this year; Later some striking results will be given on the preparation and fertilization ol our poor land for permanent - meadow and pasture, while in August and Septem ber more work will be undertaken in this practical line. We want to grow most of the grasses on small, separate plots, to note their babita of growth, adaptability to foil and climate, their value for feed in both hay and pasture, and their period of growth and time of maturity. This will aid us in deciding whiob will likely prove valuable in mixtures for bay for this soil and climate, and which will mature or have most active growth in succession from early apriog to late fall or through the winter for permanent meadow and pasture. Also we will put in several mix tures that seem likely to prove of value for bay, for general pasture and for special pasture for oattle or aheep. Some of these mixtures have been tried and recom mended to ns by farmers of this State. We want to keep the farmers posted on the work we are doing on this important subject, to invite critioism and help and advice while the work is being started. We want each farmer to realize that we are working for bis individual benefit so far as we are able, and expeot his hearty co-operation. It is not enough that they give a certain amount of' money for the prosecution of the work, but they should realize that this binds them to lurlher and constant support, and to see that we do the most good for the State that our means will admit. Let us bear from some of our Farmers' Clubs on this subject of grass. Milton Whitney, SupL N. C. State Farm. Kaleigb, June, 1887. Protecting Animals from Flies. At this season of the year the annoy ance cauaed to animals by flies and mos quitoes often amounts to positive agony, and at all times, in what is called good corn weather, it is sufficient to prevent the stock eating unough to keep them in good condition. The animals will stand in the water or pais the greater part of the day in the shade, rather than expose themselves to the sunshiue, going out to eat only when driven by hunger. They lose flesh, the flow of milk thrioks, and a loss is incurred that cannot be easily made good again. At all times a good feed of graiu is beneficial to stock, but it is especially so when flies are very annoying, since it will do much to prevent shrinkage of flesh and milk. Horsea and milch cows may be proteoted, in a great measure at least, by wiping them all over with a spouge dipped in soap-suds in which a little carbolic aoid has been mjxed. Bulls confined in stables often suffer enough from the attacks of flies to drive them half mad, and there is no doubt that the continued fretting caused in this way develops a savage disposition. The most satisfactory results have followed from sponging with soap-suds and carbolic acid mixed for a Jersey bull cotfioed in a tall.

JORDAN & CO., Hay 15. 1886. Springs' Corner. S. Wittkowsky, CHARLOTTE, N. C. In hauling down this day (May 2d, 1887.) the flag which for nine years bore proudly and tri umphantly the name of Wittkowsky & Baruch and hoisting in its stead that of 8. Wittkowsky, I deem it not improper to give to the world tue reasons for the change. - The conviction grew gradually on Mr Baruch and myself that both the Wholesale and Retail establishments could not be run in connection satisfactorily, as neither departmentcould receive that thorough and undivided attention that each required, and hence the change. I selected the Wholesale because I bad given that Department for nine years past the most attention, and for a like reason Mr Baruch took the Retail. My name having now been before the public over thirty-three years (long before many who read this were born) and trading as I do now in many instances with the third generation, and my name having become a "household word" in both the Carolinas, I deem it needless to further speakof myself than merely announce to the world that I now, under my own name, will con tinue the WHOLESALE BUSINESS In all its former branches, occupying the same Store-Rooms (the largest in the State) and em ploying the same force as before. 1 shall now be able to give my personal and undivided attention to the details of the busi ness, and my old friends and new ones loo, will always find me at my post. My main aim will be to build up a much larger WHOLESALE trade than any of my former firms have ever enjoyed, and to reach a class ot larger buyers which my connection with a Retail establishment heretofore precluded. 1 am now in daily correspondence and nego tiation with Mills and Manufacturing establish ments all over the country, with Massachusetts, Vermont and Pennsylvania for my Boots and Shoes; with North Carolina, Virginia. Ten nessee, Georgia, Kentucky and Missisiippi for my Woolen Jeans, Cassimeres and Blankets, and shall thus continue through all the various lines I keep, so that when the next Fall business opens I will present to the trade such colossal quanti ties of Goods, and of such Styles and Qualities which my Third of a Century experience so well fitted me to select, and at such prices which that experience and Ample Capital alone can obtain, and I thus early beg you to withhold placing Fall orders until my salesmen place my claims before you. A new era is before us; Progress and Improve ment is everywhere the "shibboleth," and Char lotte is abreast with the times; and as (thanks to the Inter-State Commerce Bill) Charlotte can now ship to you at much lower rate of freight than any of her heretofore competing markets. A word as to the present : I am now receiv ing my second stock of Summer Goods, but as the times will not at present warrant the expendi ture of sending my Salesmen to you, I suggest that you send mo your order, which will have my personal attention, and if when you receive the Goods, they, or any of them, should not suit you, you are at liberty to return them at my expense. Now, friend, lay the above not only to your own heart, but tell your neighbor, too, about me. w tin my very best wishes, I remain, lours respectfully, 8. WITTKOWSKY.

WILSON CO., rT Hm advantage overlooked when manure is applied on the aoil, aa com pared with the use of commercial fertili zer, is that with the decomposition of manure is a liberation of carbonic acid gas, which acts upon the soil chemically and assists in providing a greater amount ol plant food by rendering inert matter soluble. The value of manure, therefore, does not depend solely on the amount of material added to the soil, but partly to the cbemieal effect. ' HARDWARE! HARDWARE! !

It causes Headache, Mental De- -pression, impairs the Sight and Hearing, . destroys the Appetite, and, when long continued, causes Enlargement of the Liver, Inflammation of the Bowels, and Piles. Constipation is speedily cured by Ayer's Tills. For a number of months I was troubled with Costiveness, in conse quence of which I suffered from Loss of Appetite, Dyspepsia, and a disordered liver. My eyes also troubled me. I waa compelled to wear a shade over them, and, at times, was unable to bear ex posure to the light. I was entirely CURED BY USING three boxes of Ayer's Pills. I have no hesitation in pronouncing this medicine to be the best cathartic ever made. James Eccles, Poland, Ohio. I suffered from Constipation, and, con sequently, from Headache, Indigestion, and Piles, for years. Ayer's Pills, which 1 took at the suggestion of a friend, have priven me effectual relief. I commenced taking this remedy two months ago, and am now free from Constipation, the re moval of which has caused my other troubles to disappear, and gTeatly im proved m.v general health. -W. Keeler, Amherst. Mass. I suffered from Constipation, which assumed such an obstinate form that I feared it would cause a stoppage of the bowels. Two boxes of Aver's Pills cured uie, completely.
