Thoughts for the Month of January. f
The farm year coifncides pretty closely I
with the civil or legal, and the beginning if
of a new statute year, affords a natural 1
and convenient occia3ion to examine what I
progress has been made and in what di- I
rections the indications point for the a
future. During the last fifteen years I
very great changes have taken place in t
our agriculture-changes both practical f
and theoretical. We have entered upon I
a new era. Its dawn began before the
war, when Mr. David Dick son and a few
others in the South firmly grasped the
idea that soihe were impoverished by the i
exhaustion, not of all, but of a few of
their ingredients, and that these could be
chei)ly and profitably proctred and ap
plie in coininercial articles, the supplies
of which were abundant, and the bulk is
so small as to admit of ready application
to the soil. The destriction of slavery
gave a great impulse to the new idea
because labor becanie a cash commodity,
an11d inl ibisencie of coiputlsory process, a
very (ear one ; and the necessity of sup
plemeiting it by fertilizers and by labor
saving implements, forced itself upon
the attent on of farmers. The views and
practices of Mr. Dickson, published in
this journal, in forin of letters, dIiring
the years 18G7-68, gave shape and form
to the new policy, and awakened a won
derful degree of thinking lald experi
inenting among the farmers of the South.
So great was; the interest developed that
the circulation of the Cultivator ill
creased in twelve nionthis from tinder
three thousand to over fourteen thousand
copies, and we found it necessary to issue
a seiarIte edition Of the "Let teir" them
sel ves. Encouraged ai(d stimiltted by
fresh hopes, the farmers seized the iel
idea anid pushled it, in nunily inistances,
wildl, extravagatntly ai(i ruinously.
The proper coiilitions inider which con
cetirated clemical fertilizers should be
applied the best paying quatntities, the
best com)bintatioTis antd proportions--these
pin0611ts had not beenl Vet filly settled, and
there was, in the e'i*y nattire of things,
inich groping inl the dark. That many
mistakes should be iade was iatural ai'd
to be expected. The his(orv of this
imveiment reseblIes that of all great dis
coveries. discovery of a great prin
eiple oir law is fo1lowed for imay years
with an iufolding of its bearings or prae
tical applicttions. Theoretical stigges
tions have to be verified by trials, by
Fats, by experimeit anrd experience.
Tiine is rettisite for this; in agriculture
a loig time. because it takes at least a
vearI to nu'o an experiment. For the
last tenl yeat rs this work lhis been going

dition to the profits from1 the ?ale of lint
Thie above is, howvever, a st rittly gen- f
eral atnd conlnercial view of thei mat terf
--the farmer. however, has a persoinal
anrd spe'cial iinte rest in it. A bove we (
htave assumiid that the farmer sells all hiis ,
seed to the mills except those reserved
for planting putrposes. If we stopped -ii
right ther-e, it is clear that his lands u
would be .rapidly .impov'erished by this fi
heavy drain upon its foa til izing elements. tl
To prevent this, he must buy back from si
the mills the cake and the huills from his n
seed. If he enin geut these, transportion hi
at same price he sells~his seed for, he will
be gainer, in that those substances will
contain all the fertilizing teleent4 (if the e
eeding stock and for manure. Contra y
o a wide-spread belief, the oil has very
ittle value as manure. At present prices
or which seed are bought and cake and
Lulls sold, a farmer would lose quite
Leavily. We see from the New Orleans
)emocrat of recent date, which contains
full and interesting account of the cot
on seed oil industry in that city, that
he net price of cotton seed to the farmer
Lt present is from $6.50 to $7.00 a ton.
From that ton he should buy back 1,000
>ounds of hull and 750 pounds of cake,
vhich are the quantities respectiv ly
nelded by a ton of seed. At the mills
it piesent prices, these would cost him
1,000 pounds hulls, at $7.00 a ton. .$3.50
150 pounds of take, at $20.00 a ton. . 7.50
That is to say, he has to pay $11.09 at
the mills for the same inanurial elements
that he sold for $7.00. From the farm
er's standpoint, it is clear that the price
paid for cotton see(l is too low, or those
for hulls and cake too high. Witi a
proper adjistment of these, the oil mills
would be a great and very profitably in
dustry to the count ry. At present they
are very doubltfil blessings. Not only
do the farmers w 0 sell seed and buy
cake lose )y the operation, but in poiit
of fact the greater Iortion of the cake
mnade is sold to British and Northern
farmers for stock feed, and a regular
drain upon the fertility of our fields is
being (constantly made.
The increasing appreciation a d uitili
zation of cot ton seed as a manure, not
only for grain, but in conjunction with
phosphiate , for cotton also marks a very
decided advance in the system of clieni
ical farning (luring the last ten years.
In addition to his advocacy of chemical
fertilizers, Mr. Dickson was very largely
instru mental also in iitrodumiing the
'sweep" as an iniplement of cotton cIil
ture, for econoimzing labor. Modifica
tions of it in the shape of "heel scrapes'"
have since been made, and ''cultivators."

and mechanical nprovements have tlius

dreamed of twenty years ago. In this
connection ve must not fai to mentiol
the great improveient in cotton seed,
brought about by judicious selection and
breeding. It is no mean factor inl tihe
production of the extraordinary cotton

Aniother marked feature of progress,
in the last decade, haus b~een the exten
ive substitution of oats for corn, as
stock feed. This is pre-emninently a move
in the right direction. Oats require less
labor than corn. Oats are inmade by the
winter rainus--corn is cuit off by the
droughts of summer. Oats arrest the
washing awvay of the soil and sup~ply it
with humus, a matter of the very first
mp jortanuce in a cotton 'ounmmtryv-corn
does neither, but helps on the hoss of soil.
A rotatioii of cotton and oats, followinmg
(eachi other im regular successionl, is an
admiirable one ini every respect ; we cani
suggest none better for thme cottdin States.
Anmd as January is an excellent nmoiith
for sowinig oats, we urge the reader to
sow down in oats a large part of hiis cot

long and~ continuous cotton culturie.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, in one of his
lectures, describes with the clear sweep
of a painter the vital necessity of en
ergy and labor to even the most gifted.
In the present day of steam and punctu
ality, the lazy man, no matter how ex
traordinary his acquirements, must al
ways fall behind in the race of human
life. Ho says :
"Genius unexerted is no more genius
than a bushel of acorns is a forest of
oaks. There may be epics in men's
brains, just as there are oaks in acorns,
but the tree and the book must come
out before we can measure them. We
very naturally recall here that class of
grumblers and wishers who spend their
time in longing to be higher than they
are, while tey should be employed in
adlvancmug themselves. These bitterly
moralize upon the injustice of society'.
" Do they want a change ? Let them
change--who prevents it ? If you are as
high as your faculties will permit you to
rise in the scalo of society, why should
you complain of men ? It is haod that

for higher station, take it--what hinders

Life In Germany.
With an outlay which seems miserably
small to the American, Germans con
trive to lead a merry life. Fine music
and drama at cheap prices, tho love of
out-door life and the multitude of holi
days which allow him to gratify it, a
passionate fondness for singing, an
abundance of beer, cheap wines and ci
gars, will atone, in the German mind,
for a great many other deficiencies. As
to books, there is no country where they
are cheaper or more abundant. Ten
thousand new titles are printed every
year. In Prussia, compulsory education
secures a good average culture. The
new eipire is far ahead of us, not
only in the organization of its army,
but in the organization of its civil ser
vice and the conditions of tenure of of
fice. Its schools are in many respects
superior to ours. We have borrowed its
kindergartens and might borrow with
advantage son' featuresof its university
life. We have adopted its postal-cards.
The money-order system is very con
venient, the money being brought to
your door. And do we not owe an im
mense debt to German learning ? As to
music and art, we must stand with our
hats off. With all its sauerkraut, sausage
and beer, there is a charm abiout
German home-life that cainiot be ig
nored. There is a sweetness of affee
tion in the fanily circle, a fidelity to
friends, a stability of character and a
homely ingenuousness which the most
obstinate prejudice can hiardly resist.
It is a frank and innocent life, always
open to inspection.

swimmingly for a short time, lbut a short
time only. Like all its kindred of

insolvent. A morning or two after this

seeing that the mining camps pay high
prices for food for thousands of men and
beasts. But even farming, though the
crops are abundant, has its risks, as the
following story, told in Mr. Hayes'
"New Colorado," plainly shows:
"I was mining up Central City," said
an " old timer," " and there came along
one day a man with onions to sell. We
were glad to get vegetables about there.
" Well, sir, I didn't say anything, but
I allowed that farming must be a better
business than mining, and I had better
go into it myself. So I quit my claim,
and struck a ranch, and hired a Dutch
man at $100 a month to take charge.
" Well, my vegetables bogan to come

"Then says he, 'Joe, I must have
those cabbages,' and he offered me
$1,800 for the lot, and I took him up,
and ho pulled out a bag of gold-dust.
But I didn't want it in the house, and I
told him to put it in the bank, and give
me a check when he liked, and to send
for those cabbages any time.
"At any rate, there was $30,000 in
that crop, and I began to feel tony, tony,

Scotchinen and Jews.
Jews. are to Germany very much what
Scotehinien are to England. They
comC, they see, they conquer. They
invade the country at every 'point ; be
gin their career in a garret and termin
ate it in a palace. Many of the most
successful merchants, lawyers and phly
sicians in London are of Scottish extrac
tion. Lord Mayor McArthur is an Irish
Scot. Dr. Andrew Clarke is a Scott. So
is Mr. John Pender, and so are a score
of other equally eminent and opulent
individuals whom it is unnecessary to
particularize. Trhe Scot has an awk
wvardly persistent mnannci of standing in
the Briton's sunlight and of being the
foremost to seize the prizes and the dif
ferent good things of life. His nation
ality is quite as clearly defined and his
instinct is quite as aggressive and pre
hensile as in the case of the veritale
Hebrew ; he has fewer amiable qualities
1by way of compensation, and lie has in
finitely less sense of humor. Yet En
glishmen, when they have been hope
lessly distanced b~y the canny aliens
from beyond the Tweed, try to live in
pec and amity with their rivals, and
have no more notion of making theohomo
coutiecs too hot to hold them than they
have of repealing the civil disabilities
relief acts. Ini art, literature and~ muon
ey making the Israelite can beat the
Teuto,1 just as the Scot frequently does
r the Briton. Frankfort-on-the-Main, the
'secondl commercial city in Fatherland, is
