A New Grain for the South. From the Southern Lumberman. The Rev. H. H. Piatt, of South Caroli na, who was for some time a missionary in South America, has presented to the public a new cereal which he calls millomaize. It is found in Columbia in large quantities and fomis the common food of the working classes there and is also used for working animals. Mr. Pratt has been successfully growing it in South Carolina for several years. The cakes made from it, ground into meal, are preferred to corn meal bread. The Savannah Guano Company’s chemist pronounces it superior in food qualities to wheat. Experiments show that from 50 to 100 bushels of clean seed per acre can be raised. Mr. Pratt describes the plant as follows: ‘•The plant is allied to the sorghum and Guinea corn families, and should not be planted where there is any danger of mix ing them. The grain is smaller and more raeally than the Guinea corn, the heads , arc larger and more compact and the color is milk white instead of red. It differs from the sorghum in this, that the sugar it contains is fully converted into corn when the grain matures —so that the pith of the green stalks becomes as dry and tasteless as that of Indian corn when the stalk is dead. In Barranquilla, on the coast, wher<* we have a dry season (which is really a drought) of five or six months’ continuance, I have had it planted in my garden and after it had ripened one crop of seed, I have cut it down to the roots, in the midst of this dry season, and had a second c.iop, of inferior quality of course, to shoot up at once from the roots. I have been told that a third crop of fully ripened seed can thus be made from a sin gle plant. Ido not know what this can imply (for the soil at that season gets dry as a potsherd and nearly as hard), unless it means that above most other plants this lives oft' the atmosphere, which there cer tainly is densely charged with moisture from the sea. It was this unlimited ca pacity to stand drought which induced me to bring the seed home, in the belief that it would be of incalulable service to our Southern States, where our crops so often fail from drought.” Take Good Care of Your Cows. There is a loss that all farmers can guard against and that is the effect of the winter storms, both of continued cold rains and early snow storms, that come so suddenly and chill the cows to the very marrow. It makes no difference in how good flesh the cow may be, the sudden cold will shock the system and there will be' an almost total suspension of milk, the draughts upon the system to withstand the cold calling for the part that should furnish the milk sup ply. It is not a great job to put the cows in the warm stable, and from those fall stores that have been provided, so feed them that there will be no diminishing of the milk. The deal of “toughening an old cow to stand the cold” is one of the relics —we had almost said barbarisms—that needs to be expunged from every dairy man's creed. It is a practice that requires a double restorative in the way of care and feed and has its after effects that could have been avoided if the stable and a lib eral feed had been substituted. The careful owner of a cow should always consider that the udder is a highly ner vous and vascular organ, provided with a finely diffused circulatory and secretive ap paratus, and that a slight injury may have a very serious effect upon it. It is most probable that the cell structure of the milk-glands is itself the source from which the milk is derived, and that these cells are replenished from the arterial blood con veyed to and distributed through the ud der. When, therefore, it is considered that in a cow giving thirty pounds of milk in twenty-four hours, all this quantity is ac tually produced by the two fold change of blood into cells and of cells into milk and cream, the activity of the organ which per forms this enormous work must be, indeed, wonderful; and it should not be surprising that a supposed insignificant circumstance may produce some unexpected and serious results. Bearing this in mind, one who keeps a cow should ever be watchful and cautious against the least variation of treat ment that may so easily affect the condi tions of the milk. Wheat Raising in Belgium. Belgium is the most carefully and elab orately cultivated country iu Europe, and the Belgian farmers raise larger crops per acre in their small, unfenced and finely lined farms than are raised anywhere else. Fanning there partakes of the nature of gardening; indeed, it would be called gar dening elsewhere. Wheat is the impor tant crop, and the management of it is par ticular to what other people would call an extreme. The seed is sown in the fall— spread broadcast and thick over rich and well prepared plant beds, similar to those which Missouri tobacco raisers prepare for their tobacco seed. The young wheat comes up thick, rank and strong in the fall, and remains so all winter, forming a mat on the ground. In the spring the ground is thoroughly prepared by deep plowing and harrowing, after which it is marked off in drills ten inches to one foot apart, one way. The wheat plants are then pulled up from the bed in bunches and carefully picked apart, one at a time, and dropped at distances of four to six inches in the drills in the field. After the dropper follows the planter, who, with a trowel or thin paddle, makes holes in the drills at the proper distances, and sets out the separate plants in the same manner as strawberry, tomato or tobacco plants are set out. When the work is done there is a wheat field planted in drills one foot apart, and with the plants six inches apart in the drills. It is a tedious and particular pro cess. But on the small five-acre Belgian farms, worth 8200 to 8500 an acre, it am ply pays for the trouble. The Belgium wheat fields after being planted are care fully cultivated between the rows by hand until the plants are too high to admit of further work. The plants branch into stools, from each of which shoots up stalks bearing heavy heads of grain, and when the harvest comes the yield is 100 to 150 bushels of grain to the acre. The quality of milk is impaired by al lowing cows to drink foul water, and to eat improper food. All know the bad effect of turnips in winter, and of wild onions and other weeds, cropped while at pasture, in summer; but now comes up something which has not been thought of as injurious, heretofore. This is from grass and hay grown on boned land, or such as is ferti lized by sewerage. Distillery slops, per haps, is the worst of all food for milch cows, and we do not like it any better for fattening pigs. Milk from the cow, when given impro per food or drink, affects cheese made from it, more seriously than it does butter; but in either case it is bud enough, and some times, when drank, it is the origin of deadly fever and various other fatal dis eases. There are many farmers who have extra good butter cows and do not know it. They have poor pastures in summer and no shelter and indifferent feed in winter. In the house they have no convenience for making butter; the milk is set where there are no arrangements for keeping it cool in summer, and in the Jiving room, exposed to the odors of the kitchen, in winter; and neither the quantity nor the quality nor any index of what a cow can do is kept. RAISING PIGS. Cor. American Dairyman. The true farmer will keep a pig. lie will commence with a breeder. What breed? In an experiment with all, or nearly all breeds, Columbia County, Chester White, Poland, Suffolk. Berkshire and Essex, I settled on the last two as the best fitted for all purposes. The farmer wants his pig to have the meat properly proportioned ; he wants the chine and spare rib to have as little fat as is consistent with the relish of eating these pieces. And while he wants good thick middlings, he wants some lean on them. If there is much he can trim it off, to fry fresh or make into sausage-meat. The ham and shoulder he wants streaked with fat, or it will get dry and hard. He wants to fat his hog to get as much lard as pos sible, and not effect the pieces designated. All these qualities are combined in the Berkshire. The Essex nearly as much so, with the advantage of maturing earlier. The Berkshire has my preference as the hardier of the two. The Berkshire is the most thoroughbred hog in the world, from which the Essex is an outgrowth. The pure bred Berkshire is black, will have four white feet with a star on his forehead. The hams will be streaked with fat; not dry. The Essex is entirely black. There is a breed of hogs of a russet color, a cross from the Berkshire. More depends upon care and attention than on breed. While it would take a great many years to breed a hog as pure as the Berkshire, there is no class of animals can be improved so rapidly by in breeding as—requiring no science or skill in that respect —as cattle. If your sow has more than six pigs, destroy all over that number. A good foundation for six is better than a poor start for more. A good start is what succeeds at the end of the race. Remember, in the breeding of animals a few good ones and not more than you care and provide for are better than many inferior ones. The care of hogs should not be neglected. First of all is cleanliness. The hog is naturally neat, unless you compel him to the contrary. A good, warm sty in winter, a cool place in summer. Have the yard dry, with straw for bedding, and remove it every week for fresh straw. Never bed with hay, especi ally stale hay. It is poisonous. Forest leaves will do. Be at all times familiar with your pigs. Domestication is the true theory. I was going to tell how to feed the hogs. You had best breed your own hogs. Do not wean all the pigs at once. Take off a pair at eight weeks old. Don't put them in the barn nor under the barn. Nothing is so bad for hogs as to root in earth that has been covered up for years by a building. Saltpetre or brine is poisonous to hogs. Have a small tempor ary pen, wean them two at a time at in tervals of two weeks, let the last one or two remain twelve weeks. This mil be the premium pig, and the sow’s udder will not get inflamed. Feed the little pigs with skim milk. If your pigs come in March or April, with proper care you can make them Weigh 250 to 800 pounds by De cember. The breeder must not be fed too high for a few weeks before breeding. If solid, firm pork is desired, two weeks before slaughtering feed nothing but dry grain, twice each day, with all the cold water the hog can drink at noon. During these two weeks clean the nest out every day, and the meat will not smell disagreeable in cooking. Ensilage. A Philadelphia gentleman who has just returned from a visit to the celebrated Havermyer farm at Mahway, Bergen coun ty, N. J., states that Mr. Havermyer is a great believer in ensilage and has no less than 8G silos on the place; 24 of them are ; 14 feet long, 8 feet wide and 80 feet deep, while the other 12 are the same width and length, but only 22 feet deep. The ensi lage is stored in these silos and fed to his splendid herd of Jersey cows, of which he has 117, and all perfect beauties. He has 8(1 acres ot land sowed with corn for ensi lage, which is cut by two Ross cutters, each of 15 tons per hour capacity. The corn is cut iu half width lengths. After being pre pared the ensilage is fed to each cow at the rate of about 40 pounds morning and eve ning. During the day the cows are turned into a ten-acre field where there is plenty of shade and water. On this treatment the cattle thrive and give a much greater abundance of milk than by the old method of feeding. Our informant states that he also visited ! the 140-acre farm of John Y. Smith, of Doylestown. Bucks county, and found that gentleman was feeding his cattle in like ‘ manner. He has four silos 40 feet long, 20 feet deep and 10 feet wide, which are divided into four compartments. Mr. Smith stated that before he began feeding ensilage he could keep only 24 head of cows on his farm; now he has 84 and keeps them better than he could in the old way. From his investigations our informant is firmly impressed with the belief that this method of feeding cattle is a great improve ment over any other and that it will event ually be universally adopted.— Westchester, Pa., Jeffersonian. Direction of Rows of Wheat. An old wheat raiser, who is generally successful, said in conversation the other day that in his experience he found it best ' to drill his wheat cast and west instead of north and south. llis argument was that in the winter and early spring when we have thawing weather during the day, and freezing at nights, wheat drilled east and west would not heave out or winter kill, as would that drilled north and south. He asserts that the sun being in the south, and the wheat stalks being between the ridges made by the drill hoes, the sides of the ridges would thaw out while the north sides, being shaded, would not thaw out so much, and the wheat roots would not be so liable to be killed. If drilled north and south the sun would shine alike on both sides of the ridge, thawing it out and causing it to spew up, throwing the wheat up and letting the roots be exposed to the freezing at night, hence he had always, if possible, run his drill east and west. Again, he said that in the early spring and summer, when the wheat began grow ing, it received more benefit from the sun’s rays drilled in this way than if drilled north and south, consequently the yield on fields drilled east and west were better than if drilled in any other direction. His argu ment impressed me so that I concluded to try the experiment of sowing two plats ad joining each other, the quality of land being as nearly alike as possible, sowing one and one-forth bushels to the acre on corn land that had been plowed well and kept reasonably clean of weeds when the corn was growing, and thoroughly harrow ed before drilling. I have never before taken any notice of which way I drilled.— Country Gentleman. In some parts of the Western States burning the stubble of the preceding crop ' is the usual preparation for wheat. This has the advantage of destroying the eggs of the insects that prey on wheat, and if successive crops are to be grown year after year, it •is probably the only successful policy. But it would be better to plough the stubble under, grow a greater diversity of crops, and not be ruined by the failure of any one of them. If the young clover after harvest is not pastured, it will often cut a load of hay per acre, worth for winter use even more than the summer crop of hay, and far more valuable than the pasturage lost. rr m ■ Living Down a Bad Reputation. From the Staunton (Fa.) Vindicator: There is no stronger evidence of the re cuperative power of the Southern States than the astonishing progress they have made in the face of the most malign adver tising that ever afflicted a people. If at the close of the civil war, the victorious half of the Union had turned in energeti cally to aid the defeated half, had advertised to all the world that the South was fertile, organized emigration companies to it, and used all the machinery which it has so successfully used iu populating the West, it would still have been wonderful that a section so thoroughly prostrated by a four years war and change of labor could have risen in so short a time to what the South is now. It would have been remarkable that in eighteen years Georgia and South Carolina could have made the cotton man ufacturers of Massachusetts tremble for their future; that the two Virginias could have drawn much of the iron manufacture from Pennsylvania; that ships could be built and launched in Southern waters; more railroads should be built in the South than any other section of the country; that she should be holding great industrial ex positions such as those of Atlanta and Louisville —in short, that she should be even on her feet at all. We say this would have been surprising had all the friendly aid that we have mentioned been extended her. How much more surprising must it be then when we look at the real state of the case. Of all the peoples in the civilized world the Southern have had the most up hill time since the civil war. They made their new start with the name “Rebel” pinned to them. They were fleeced by all sorts of adventurers under form and color of law. The National government was openly inimical to them. Instead of call ing attention to their fields and rivers and minerals, the Northern press called atten tion to every crime, every isolated idle community, every poor and wasted field, the utterances of every cracked-brained political fool, as the best evidences of the moral, agricultural and political condition of the Southern country. When political campaigns came along the unlucky South was advertised with a brass band. Every hustings at the North was crowned with a speaker blatant over the crimes at the South, the political murders, the thrift lessness of the people, and the generally to be dreaded character of the country. The Republican party annually took the dirty clothing of the Southern people and washed it in the great national wash tub before the whole world, often throwing in a few hundred extra bloody shirts of their own manufacture to make the washing more impressive. As if the patriotic efforts of our Northern brethren were not a sufficient burden, the South had Republicans scattered all through her borders who were busily engaged in pro viding the outrages to order. They were handy witnesses to prove what the civilized Republican party was trying to establish, that the South could hardly be called civ ilized. Instead of talking of the openings at the South for enterprise and capital, the topic of their conversation was outrages, proscription, and the like. No country of modern times has had such external and internal foes to drive away prosperity by evil report as has the South. If the gov ernment had posted Mason and Dixon’s line with sign boards labeled “Small Pox,” “Cholera” and “Yellow Fever,” it could not have done more to repel prosperity from entering this section than the Repub lican party has done for us iu eighteen years, through its orators, its press, and through the officers of the National. Go vernment who have been, up to the present time, under its control. We say that with such a character as was given the Southern States by the Re publican party and universally accepted by the civilized world, it is a wonderful tri umph over adverse and malign advertising, that the South has won by her own unaided efforts a place recognized in the commer cial, manufacturing, agricultural and po litical world. A people with less stamina in them, with less of all that constitutes men in them, would have been beaten down by a combination which actually included their own national government. And yet we sometimes hear of what the Republican party has done for the country. It has done nothing for the Southern States, ex cept drive off emigration and lower the price of her acres, by publishing to the world that they were unsafe and unfit for a residence. The Southern States have done everything for themselves. The Re publican party has done much for one sec tion of the country. On that section it ' has lavished its positions of trust and profit, its proceeds of the Credit Mobilier Swindle, its assets from the Star Route thieves, its assets of a defunct navy, its assets of the great Babcock National Whiskey Ring, its gigantic Pension list, but in this section it has done nothing, absolutely nothing, ex ' cept to advertise it to the world as a place , unfit for civilized people to live in. If there was nothing else to prove the vitality of the Southern people the fact that in the face of such a character, in spite of such efforts of the Republican part} 7 (composed to its lasting shame, be it said, of their own countrymen) to place them and keep them out of reach of the civilized j world, they have forced their way up into an important place in the eyes of that world to a position of weight in the affairs of the nation, and are to-day the rivals in manu facture of many of the Northern States, would fully prove it. Large Farms. — The statistics given by the Los Angeles, California, Daily Com mercial, as to the immense farms of that State, are astonishing. It quotes a list of a dozen large California farms, and adds the following, in the southern part of the State ; “The late Dan Murphy, of Santa Clara, with his 16,000,000 acres; Haggin & Carr, with 800,000 acres; Miller & Lux, with 000,000 acres; Gen. Beale, with 200,- 000 acres; H. M. Newhall, with 48,000 acres; Lankershim & Co., 50,000 acres; B. F. & G. K. Porter, 80,000 acres; Moffit & Maclay, 20,000 acres; E. J. Baldwin, 20,- 000; J. & L. Bixbey, 80,000 acres; j. Ir vine, 48,000; John G. Downey, 75,000; I. W. Heilman, 25,000 acres; Richard Gird, 80,000 acres; James S. Flood, 187,000 acres; Thomas R. Bard, 50,000 acres; D. Freeman, 50,000 acres, and numerous other farmers and stock-growers whose farms ex tend into tens of thousands of acres. There is nothing in the world that hurts a man so much as the habit of grumbling. Some people are like snarling dogs that never see a stranger, whether he be friend or foe, without snapping at his heels. The good in life is never good enough, and the bad is always worse than it is. The Lord couldn’t fix things right for some folks whom we have known, because which ever way a thing is done they always want it the other way. An old sinner of this ilk once confessed on her knees that she had had a heap of trouble in her life, and tha t most of it never happened. It is a good rule not to suffer from the toothache until the tooth begins to ache. Finely flavored, aromatic, sweet butter can only be secured through the use of a percentage of new milch cows in the dairy at all seasons. Darlington, the famous Philadelphia butter-maker, milks his cows for butter only three or four months after calving, then diverts their milk to cheese or to the supply of the city milk trade. Butter made from the milk of farrow cows is inclined to crumble and taste cheesy. Whistlers are always good-natured, says a philosopher. Everybody knew that. It’s the folks who have to listen to the whistling that get ugly. Movements of Colored Republicans. From the Baltimore Situ. One of the most striking features of the general political situation is the increased activity of the colored element of the Re publican party. The scope of the move ment is unmistakable. A complete change of leadership is contemplated, involving nothing less —where the colored element furnishes the larger part of the Republican voting strength—than replacing the present white Republican officials with colored ones, and this, too, not only in the unre munerative positions of party organizations, but also in the paid offices of the Federal, State and minor local governments. There can, of course, be no objection to this. The majority of a party is entitled to name its candidates and control the party ma chinery. White Republicans consented to it beforehand in giving the colored man the ballot and welcoming him to their party. They have always stood up —espe- cially in the South—for the competency of the colored voter to discharge the duties of citizenship. They have especially contend ed for his right to the benefits of the bal lot —to elect and be elected. They will only be acting consistently with their prin ciples, therefore, in acquiescing in the pro posed transfer, in this city and elsewhere, of the party control to a new basis. The claim of such prominent colored papers as the Vindicator , of this city, the Echo , of Savannah, and the Globe , of New York, is that their demand for at least proportionate representation in the management and ben efits of the Republican party cannot, after eighteen years of patient tutelage, be deemed premature or immodest. While they were learning the arts of politics the colored vo ters were content to vote their instructors into the offices. Now, however, that the period of tutelage is over, the favor should be reciprocated. Only thus will the excel lence of their instruction and the talent of the colored race for the discharge of high political functions be demonstrated in a way to convince the incredulous. It is not perhaps without justice that the colored press find fault with the Bourbon conduct of 30,000 white Republicans of Kentucky, who remorsely scratched the Rev. Mr. As bury, the colored nominee on the State ticket for register of the land office. Doubt less it is as obligatory on white Republi cans to vote for colored candidates as for colored Republicans to vote for white can didates. From the point of view of all Republicans it should be regarded as noth ing less than party ostracism of the most objectionable character to bolt or scratch a candidate on account of his color. No ob jection was made to Mr. Asbury’s record. On the contrary, he is represented as a man “of good education, broad ideas and gentlemanly character.” That he was scratched so largely cannot but be considered as giving point to the declaration made by Mr. T. Thomas Fortune in the New York Times of Tuesday last, that “the colored voters in this country are no longer in leading strings,” but “want honest treat ment and less gush; less bossing and more obedience.” The same colored writer shows in what various ways their discontent has been voiced by the colored people of the United States. “The colored people of Rhode Island in convention assembled de nounced the party and its methods, and put their denunciation in the ballot-box not a year ago for the Sprague ticket.” The tidal wave that swept over New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and Massachu setts last November Mr. Fortune declares was largely colored, the voters of that race giving at that time “ample proof that they were not machines.” The opposition to the holding of the proposed national col ored convention at Washington in June, he states, was due to the conviction among the militant colored element that the con vention, under the partisan leadership of Fred. Douglass, was “to be run in the in terest of politicians.” Hence the change of the date from June to September, knd and of the place from Washington to Lou isville. The Colored Press Association at St. Louis passed a resolution declaring it self non-partisan—a significant fact, in the writer’s opinion. The convention of col ored men held at Columbia, South Caro lina, some weeks ago, “condemned the management of the Republican party in the strongest language,” and their animus has been again exhibited in the recent let ter of a prominent colored politician of South Carolina to the Charleston News and Courier. The Plagues of History. The earliest plagues of which there are any account of, those described in Exodus, occurred in Egypt 1431, B. C. In 534, B. C., there was a plague at Carthage so terrible that parents sacrificed their children to propitiate the gods. In 187, B. C., in the Greek Islands, Egypt and Syria, people died at the rate of 2,000 a day. In Rome, A. 1)., 80. 10,000 people died daily. Another plague at Rome, A. D., 25G, took oft’ 5,000 a day. In 430 Britain was scourged so that the living were hardly able to bury the dead. During the years 740-749 Constantinople lost 200,000 of its population. At Chichester, England, in 772, 34,000 people died, and in 954 Scotland lost 40,000 people. Ireland was sorely visited in 1172 and 1204, and again in 1348-9. At that time 200 people were buried daily. In 1407 London lost 30,- 000 citizens. There was a fearful pesti lence at Oxford in 1741. The dreadful “sweating sickness” occurred in London in 1500 and again in 1518. In most of the towns half the people died, and Oxford was depopulated. In 1522 thousands were swept away in Limerick. The I sweating sickness revisited in England in 1528 and again in 1551. In 1003-4 30,- 578 perished of plague in London. Con stantinople again lost 200,000 people in 1011. In 1025 London lost 35,417 in habitants. In 1032 Lyons lost 00,000. In 1050 400,000 people died at Naples in six months. In 1004 London’s great plague took off 08,590 inhabitants. In 1720 00,000 people died at Marseilles. In 1773 80,000 inhabitants of Bossora, Persia, died of plague. In 1792 800,000 persons died of plague in Egypt. In Barbara 3,000 people died daily, and in 1799 247,000 people perished at Fez, Asiatic cholera first appeared in England at Sunderland, October 20, 1831, and in j North America at Quebec, June 8, 1832, and in New York, June 22, 1832. It revisited the United States in 1834, slight ly in 1849, severely in 1855, and again lightly in 1800-7. In 1829-30 900,000 people died of cholera in Russia and Germany. In 1848-9 53,293 people died of it in England and Wales, and in 1854 these countries lost 20,097, and Naples 10,000 persons. In 1805 00,000 people died of cholera in Constantinople. The simplest postofficc in the world is in Magellan Straits, and has been estab lished there for many years. It consists of a small cask, which is chained to the rocks of the extreme cape in the straits, opposite Terra del Fuego. Each passing ship sends a boat to open the cask and take letters out and place others in it. The postoffice therefore, it is under the protection of all the navies of all nations, and up to the present time there is not a single case to report in which any abuse of the privileges it affords has taken place. Keep your promise, to the letter, be prompt and exact, and it will save you much trouble and care through life, and win you the respect and trust of your friends. When a woman wants to get rid of her husband for an hour she sends him up stairs to get something from the pocket of one of her dresses. ■yjyTE DESIRE TO CALL THE : Thoughtful attention of farmers to the supe ° rior merits of ORCHILLA GUANO AS A 1 FERTILIZER FOR WHEAT and GRASS. [ The advantages resulting from its use are . not only an increased yield, but the perma nent improvement of the soil from the abun ’ dant growth of grass which is sure to follow. I ORCHILLA p Is no new thing. For eighteen years it has ;• been undergoing trial, and well has it stood the test. At first its progress to favor was ' naturally slow; but merit will, sooner or later, ■ have its reward, and now its sales every year I are largely increased over those of the pre ceding year, and the friends of its early days are its best friends now. . It has been used extensively in Maryland, ! Pennsylvania and Virginia, and from its abuu ■ dant success everywhere, we are justified in ; recommending it to you as being well adapted [■ to your soils. No fertilizer for your use has had such unvarying success and continued * popularity. Some of the largest and best ! farmers in these three states use it almost ex ■ clusively. . . It is Successful, because it is Nature s I own provision for her exhausted fields. It is Low Priced, because we have none ! of the expense of manufacturers, and, with ’ out regard to its high commercial value, we i base its price solely upon its actual cost to > import. [ We refer you below to some of the farmers who have used it, and ask you to enquire of them as to its merits. i i 1 Wooldridge, Travers & Co., IMPORTERS, 04 Bcchanax’s Wharf, : : Baltimore, Mil 1 i SAMUEL J. HOPKINS&BRO., Colesville, [ Montgomery county, Md., wrote, March 7th, L 1883:—“Some nine years ago we bought a i tract of land, about four miles from Sandy I Springs. It was very poor land, covered with r scrubby pines. We cleared it and applied manure, which we hauled from Washington, ; every year up to 1880. This involved a great ' deal of labor, trouble and expense, and that i year, hearing of the remarkable success of . Orchilla Guano in other sections, and its low . price, we concluded to try it. We put in a crop of rye with it, and had splendid results. ’ The next year we used four tons of it. Before > the crop was made we sold the place, but the i rye and grass which followed greu so rank •* that the new owner complained he could not cut it. We then bought our present home, , near Colesville, where we continue to use Or chilla, and the grain and grass we have been : growing from its use are as fine as can be ! found. We also applied Orchilla Guano in 1880 on the farm of Mrs. Richardson, which ’ adjoined ours. We there applied 400 pounds of Orchilla to the acre; it cost $25 per ton. 5 Beside it w’e applied Peruvian Guano at the ' rate of 600 pounds to the acre; it cost $52 per ' ton. At harvest the straw from the Peruvian , was about six inches higher than that from the Orchilla, but it did not yield one grain more rye. In our judgment Orchilla Guano ’ is as good a fertilizer as any other we know 1 of, and costs much less, and we think it suits ■ our Montgomery county lands.” I .1. C. BRUBABER, Uniontown, Carroll ■ Co., Md., April 26, 1882, says: “1 used 300 ; pounds Orchilla Guano to the acre broad cast, or put on with a fertilizer drill before planting, and I had the best crop of corn in ‘ th is section. It kept green during the drought ■ and made twelve barrels to the acre. I shall • continue to use it.” i > p CHARLES M. KING. Damascus, Mont gomery Co., Md., July 24, 1883, says: “I 1 have been using Orchilla Guano for a number of years. I formerly used a good deal of A. A. Mexican, and when that could no longer be had genuine, I was induced to try Orchilla. I soon found it had remarkable virtue, and have used it ever since, when I could get it. Its effects show plainly on my farm. Last ' year it made me twenty-seven bushels of wheat ) where I only had twelve before; and on that , field now stands clover over three feet high ! i It made me fourteen barrels of corn to the , acre last year, where I could only raise seven or eight before. 1 tried some this spring, by sowing it in February, as is recommended, ‘ and letting it lie till ready to plough and put i in corn, and where I put it any one can see the corn is greener and stronger. lam sat isfied Orchilla is a valuable improver of the ’ soil, and now that I can get it at Mt. Airy, at ’ low freight, I will use more of it than ever. It is sometimes slow, but it is sure .” > WM. C. BATTERSFIELD, Greensboro’, 1 Caroline Co., Md., August 1, 1883, says: “I 1 have been using Orchilla Guano for fifteen years largely. I have frequently tried other fertilizers, but fell back on Orchilla. I be lieve it a good, permanent improver of poor lands.'' JOHN M. SMITH, Sandy Springs, Mont gomery Co., Md., August 1, 1882, says; “I have used Orchilla Guano on a barren hill side, the soil being so washed oft’ as to leave the ground pretty much clear of signs of veg etation. It brought pretty fair wheat, and where there was any soil I find the timothy and clover well set, satisfying me there is vir tue in it. I purpose using it again.” WASHINGTON D. WATERS, Goshen, Montgomery Co., Md., July 3, says: “Or chilla seems to have given general satisfaction in this neighborhood. My wheat is better than I have had for a long time.” JESSE W. DOWNS, Dayton, Howard Co., Md., June 16, 1883, writes: “I have used Or chilla Guano for the past four seasons on wheat, corn, rye and potatoes, and find it equal to any high-priced fertilizer that 1 have used within the past ten years. On good land it makes fine crops at once, and on thin lands, I have watched its action carefully, and I can say with truthfulness that it is a sure and permanent improver of the soil. It certainly will make ‘poor land rich.’ I am sorry I did not get hold of it long ago. All who have used it in this neighborhood speak well of it, and will use it again this fall.” AGENTS: C. S.

Roberts, of Carroll coun ty, having used for some years Peruvian Guano, (which cost him $49 per ton) enter • tained a very good opinion ot its merits. I 1 proposed to Mr. Roberts that he should try . one ton of the “Star Bone” Phosphate, and if it did not do equally as well as Peruvian '. Guano, I would charge him nothing for it. He consented to try a half ton of “Star Bone” . on each of his farms, with the following results: Mr. Adams, a tenant on his farm near Union town, writes as follows : Uniontown, Md., July 25, 1883. James E. Smith, Dear Sir According to i Mr. Robert’s instructions I used last fall one . half ton of J. E. Tygert & Co’s. Star Bone 1 Phosphate sold by you, sowing the same t through the middle of a field on either side of which I had used Peruvian Guano in the same proportion with the Star Bone. I have no . hesitation in saying that the wheat where the “Star Bone” was used, was decidedly better . than that upon which the Peruvian Guano was used. Yours, Ac. Evan Adams. , Mr. John T. Baust writes as follows: ’ Westminster, July 25, 1883. James E. Smith, Dear Sir:—With the per ; mission of Mr. Roberts I tried J. E. Tygert ■ & Co’s. Star Bone Phosphate sold by you last fall, using one-half ton. It was sown along side of the Peruvian Guano and in same proportion; there was but little difference in the yield of wheat, but the difference through small was in favor of Star Bone. Yours truly, JohnT. Baust. James E. Smith — Sir :—This to certify that I used nearly two tons of J. E. Tygert & Co’s. “Star-Bone Phosphate,” sold by you, beside the old-fashioned Peruvian Guano- — for which I paid $49 per ton—and yours did as well and made me as much wheat per acre as did the Peruvian Guano, there being a dif ference of sll per ton in your favor. I will want eight tons of it this fall. Peter B. Mikesell, Westminster, Md.
