The name and postotlice hdilresN .should accompany each letter, net ne.OHiinly for pul.lication, but as a guaranty nf good faith. It is our purpose to open this column to a free exchange of i-xjierienet' and opinions between its readers. A New Wny 1 OinwtiiB StruwburrlrH. Tuere U no doubt but that, in many parts of the country the "lull or "slool plan is a tail lire because ot hard winter. Fruit is much larger and liner givwn by the ".stool" system (thai is keeping ine runners dipped oil J, and the reasons for this are thai the ground gets better cultivated, and the plants, being worked on all sides, make a luxuriant growth anil bear in proportion. Now, if Me can adopt some plan by which the soil can be belter Mined all around the plant, we know line fruit will be attained. Therefore we propose what we style the "matted hill system," which is as follows: Prepare the grouud well, mark it three or three and one-half feel each way, as for corn, and at cadi crossing ot marker set it strawberry plant (or, if you have plenty of them, two in each place will be safer and bet ter). Keep the cultivator running both ways, and iptite often, as plants commence to run freely; and by doing this, and when cleaning the lulls bv hand, drawing stray plants and covering vwili earili. a mailed lull will soon be found one and one-half to two feet across. AVe have noticed thai wiu-ii there were vacan cies in matted rows, and ciur.ips of plants here and there, the truit was much liner ihan where the mailed rows if plants were continuous. Knots of strawberry plants run much further than one would suppoM-.aiid where the ground is tilled with tluui the hnest is not so tine as when thep can have more room. We advise the trying of this plan by those who have plenty of land and horse help. After they arc through bearing, a small plow with a sharp knife or wheel, can be run through both ways, and hills plowed down closely, ground leveled oil', and cultivator and hoe run through as be fore. Fruit liaordu: IkOHi'N 111 The ever-blooming roses are best for house culture in pots because they bloom quicker and more continuously than any of the others, and besides this, their style and habit of growth is more bushy and better adapted to the pur pose. They can be kept nicely with other growing plants, and w ith proper attention to their re(Uirements will bloom freely. (1) Do not lis too large pots if possible, nut more than three or four inches. The rule is, one size larger than the plants have been grown in. The smaller the pot provided, of course, it is large enough to contain the plant the (juick cr and stronger the plant will start. It is very dillicult to get a small plant to live and grow in a large pot A rose will not bloom much till the pot is well filled with roots; therefore, small pots facilitate quick bloom. It the pots are old, they should first be thoroughly w ashed ; if new, they should be soaked in water, other wise they will absor") the moisture from the plain. ('?) Have good rich soil mellow and friable. That made from old decomposed sods is best. If manure is Used, it should be old and thoroughly composted; Iresh manure is injurious. '(:!)' I'm some bits ot broken crock ery, charcoal, or other similar material, in the bottom of each pot to lacilitate drainage, then enough tine earth to raise the plant to a proper height. It should not be much deeper than it was before. Next put in the plant and spread out its roots as near ther naiural position as possible; then till in tine earth and press fu in ly uown with the hand. When done, the pot should not be quite full ; a little space is need cd for water. (4) When lirst potted, water thoroughly, ami if the sun is strong, shade for a few days; then give full light and air. Though the plant should not Ik; allowed to wither for want of water, the earth should get moderately dry before watering again. Too much water is "worse than not enough. Very little water is needed until the plant starts to grow. Uttitlf to li'ixr Vulture. TlIK OlIHilNAL OF THF. CLLTIVATKIi POTA TO. A potato plant (Sttlttiitim Ftittlltri) grow ing in great abundance in nor' hern New Mexi co is supposed to be the original of our culti vated potato. This native plant forms one of the chief articles of diet of the Navajo Indians. The squaws dig up the small tubers with w hat ever implements they can obtain, often using a strong, smooth piece of wood w ith a wedge shaped" end. The plant grows on low, rich spots, and by spring the earth is turned up in every conceivable direction in the search for the potatoes. The latter are from one-half to three-quarters of an inch in diameter, and of rood tlavor tastinir somewhat like boiled chestnuts. The Navajo Indians consume such large quantities at a time as to cause griping pains, and as a remedy take ut the same meal a quantity of earthly matter containing mag nesia, which relieves the stomach. Some vears ago a quantity of the tubers of Ibis species of iMtato were received and distributed by the department of Agriculture. Reports "from various localities stated that, in many cases, these improved under cultivation, and in creased largely in size. 'ientijic Aim riruu. Esolaxd's Food Sltply. The agricultur al returns of Great Britain show a small in crease in wheat and barley, and a decrease in otits. The acreage of wheat has increased 50, 00". Estimating Ireland at a slight increase, thf total acrcaee of wheat in the t'nitrd King dom is 3,400,000. The new crop is fully up to the average, and better than for some years. It will yield llWO.OOO quarters, leaving 13.000,. 000 quarters to be drawn from abroad. The French wheat crop is lieheved to be below the average, and the French will 1 buyers instead of sellers. The present prices will probably be maintained.orpcrhaps be slightly increased, but there w ill be no scarcity. The jmtatocrop will be about the same as" last year. Young cattle have increased 40,500 and lambs 263,000. The rnciltc Wht Cmp. The surplus of California wheat available for exportation is estimated for this year at 050,000 to 750,000 tons. The exportable sur- 'ius of Oregon is about 100.000 tons. The uropean demand for this grain will ! good, and a beneficial activity will result in the busi ness of sailing vessels plying between San Francisco and Europe. Sailing vessels have had too little to do all the world over of recent years, and the employment of .VK) sailing ves sels in carrying this year's C alifornia wheat to market will vary this dullness agreeably. IJots, says the Canada Fmiwr, cannot be killed in the stomach of a horse. The best thing to do to prevent their getting there is to taim otTfhe long hairs from the shoulder, fore lec. jaws, and breast, on which the bot-tiv de posits her eggs, smear the points with, oil, to prevent their adhering. This should lie done in summer and atitumr. when the bot-flies are around in winged form. It is a good plan to scrub off the Lot-fly eggs with sap daily. Cabba lias a superior value for feeding Durooses. Lnsrhsli cattle feeders assert that their Leasts progress fater on cabbage, mixed with nlentv of fine cut wheat straw and cotton cake, than with any othr vegetable. Cabbage contains one part flesh-forming substance to turee ot Ileal prouuonp, uue iu iMjutKR-s uic flesh forming is only one to twenty. Cabbage ia alo rich in mineral matter. From Texas. Texas, Sept. 2, 1878. A serious drouth still prevails here, much to the discomfort of the traveling public, who are compelled to bieathe dust on every hand. The cotton crop has been cut short at least three-fourths, with very little advance in prices over last year. The dry weather favors the gathering very much, and the crop will be put on the market one month sooner than ever known before. (Quarantine and a thorough reform in clean liness seems to be the leading topic of most Texan cities just now, especially where they are directly connected with'the fever district. Texan cities have thus far escaped the terrible scourge, tint the memory oi iPOt ami vni burns vividly in the minds of many of our c itizens. 1 lie type ol the present is the most malignant and ungovernable ever before known. Greenbackers, with their Hat money policy are creating no little stir throughout the coun try. Their state convention, which convened at Waco a few days after the Austin conven tion adjourned, was rather a mixed affair, the worst of which was that of- the negro element trying to bring a nominee of their own race ami color. Hut in this Sambo was too weak and had to succumb to the artful demagogue who assured him of their fidelity to the col ored brethren. Gen. Hainan ot Calvert was nominated for Governor, and Gen. Ruins of IvauH'inan for Lieut. Governor. Upon the whole th convention was a moiley crew.com K)sed mainly of old political aspirants and free negroes. The new noin iuees have already entered the field pretty sanguine of success in the November election. Chief Justice Hub erts has resigned li is ofHce and will enter the contest immediately. It ia thought by many that the race will be a close one. Since Green backisin has grown to be a stern reality in stead of an idle tale, Ex-Governor Throckmor ton and Governor Hubbard will canvass the state in his behalf. II. Q. Mills, congressman from this district was unanimously nominated for re election, at Kryan. Mr. Mills was the only member from Texas that opposed the electoral commission, and has ever since gained the confidence of his constituents. The brorder troubles along the Hio Grande seem more quiet than usual, but the cessation is only for a short period, when it will break forth with renewed energy. If the truth were known in those border troubles, Texans would be to blame as much as Mexicans, for the game played is one of never failing retalia tion. LlTTI.K Ikxax. From Brooklyn. JSuooklyk, LaSallf. Co., Sept. 5. Not much news this week; everybody mind ing his own business. Plowing progressing slowly; threshing begun lively, and machines going in every direction; wheat yielding from 10 to IS bushels per acre. Mr. John Goinmes returned from Kansas last week. He likes it so well that he wishes to sell his crop and go to the land flowing with milk and honey immediately. Mr. John Foulk has taken some of his choice colts to the fair at Princeton. Mr. John I). Wagoner has secured the win ter term of school in district No. 2. Mr. iJownian is going to build a large corn crib this fall. Mr. Jacoby has rented (). I). F. Conkey's farm and Mr. lloiislough, who had rented lt this year, has rented Jacob Deaner's. Mr. P. J. Zenenck, of Four Mile Grove, gave some ot his tncmis in tins neighborhood a visit last babbath. Daniel Miller, Esq., was at Princeton last Monday on business. There was a party at Starved Rock last Sat urday, They report having a good time. Mr. John Gons was married to Miss Mary Nowman last Sabbath. Henry Neis was struck in the face by the forefoot of one of his large Norman stallions last week, and severely injured. Hakky D.vlk. From Blue Jasper. Munr. Eth'tr. During the past eight weeks our little city, located here on the Am braw, has been alive, as it were, with teachers, teachers not only from our county of Jasper, but also teachers from Richland, Clay, Cum berland and Crawford counties, attending our Normal school, which has been so successful ly contlucted by Prof. Arnold, assisted by Prof. Arthur Marshal of tliis county. Mr. Arnold is a graduate of McKendrce College, and a student of the Illinois Wcslcyan college and the State Normal, and, although a young mail, is an exceedingly ripe scholar and a most in defatigable worker, and I am confident when I say that he has done more during the three years he has been with us to advance and awaken an interest in education in our coun try than was ever before accomplished that I but speak the truth. Prof. Marshall, a stu dent of the State Normal is also an able teach er. A very interesting and instructive feature of the term were a series of lectures delivered at the Court House by Prof. Edwards, of Mc- Kendree College, Owen Scott, Superintendent of Effingham county, and State Superinten dent, S. M. Etter, all of which were largely at tended and listened to with attention and let us hope great profit. Jasper has been iu the backwoods for many years, but we feel proud of J. F. Arnold and confident that he will pilot? us out in time. Mr. litter on Friday evening, Aug. 30th, at the close of the Institute, deliv ered one of the finest lectures we ever heard. The Court House was crowded, and after bring introduced by Prof. J. F. Arnold, Mr. Ktter addressed the audience for over two hours on school government in oue of the ablest and most telling speeches we ever heard. All that heard him went away well pleased ami ex. pressed themselves that he was the proper man for the high position that he occupies. Am bra w. This is from the Cinte-tifit Jtmrittil, New Harm.
