NO 23 EXPERIMENTAL FIRM m pro Objects and Purposes of Those, Managing It. Mr. Lyman E. Carrier who has been in STAUNTON for a few days doing work in connection with the State Experimental Faim on the New Hope road near STAUNTON left for his laome at Blacksbnrg yesterday. Mr. Carrier occupies the chair of Agronomy at the Virginia Polytech nic Institute at Blacksbnrg, and he thus has to do with agriculture al most entirely. The session at Blacks bnrg is just'closing, which hurried Mr. Carrier home, but he will return here in a short time and go more ac tively into the work for which the farm was bought. Mr. W. W. Sproul whose interest in experimental farm ing is well known, was instrumental not only in getting the agricultural department of the state to purchase this farm, but to get it to purchase any farm. When he had obtained consent to buy a farm, naturally Au gusta was selected by him as the lo cation for it. The farm, bought, those in charge think, presents as many ad vantages as any that could have been selected not only on account of posi tion but on account of climate and soil. The farm is being laid off- into squares of one-fourth, one-half and one acre lots, and experiments to demons trate the use of fertilizers will be numerous and it is to be hoped profit able. Then pure seeds will be raised. Pure corn will be grown there in or der to improve the seed corn of this section particularly. To those who do not know what is meant by pure corn, we desire to say that Professor Carrier says it is corn that has been kept fiea from common or hybrid corn Corn growers find that pollen can be earned for a long distance, and that inferior corn will mix with fine grades at long, distances. One of the things to be done here next season particularly will be to raise pure corn, as well as other pnre seeds, so that the farmers of the state may get the best. The farm was bought rather late to do much this season. The most of the land was in crop when purchased, so that another season must pass before full experiments can be made. The growing of Alfalfa will be demonstrated, and the crops which contain tlie greatest number of elem-1 ents which permanently enrich ground, will be experimented with. Mr. Carrier has advertised for a Ctent farmer and our farmeis 3 well to read that* advertise now appearing in the DIS ! H. The farm needs some re pairs in the shape of fencing etc., but in a short time this will be done. Onr people will do well to bear in mind what is being done there, and Ie season advances visit; the farm >cc for themselves. 0 THE SUPREME COURT !. H.
