Matters of Interest and Vafoe to Farmers, Special! Prepared for This Paper. THE EXPERIMENT STATION. Tliis institution was organized by legislative enactment in 1877, and has for sixteen years been laboring for the bf-t interests of the agriculture of North Carolina. The fetation has issued daring thee j years a million arid more copies of bul- of North Carolina. - 'lha fund for the support of the sta t;m is l-rivetl from the general gov ernment, and Tit appropriation in re ceived by it from theState. Thestation desires and net-ds the active co-operation of... all people of the State, &r w ith out this co operation it can do but lit tle effectual and permanent work. Letters of "inquiry from any. person upon any agricultural subject vill be encouraged. Replies to same will be made at once by the member of the t-tation MatT mof-t competent to do bo, in whose pjecial field the question lies. All questions must invariably be ad dressed to "The N. C.

The regu lar bulletins contnin such subjects of immediate interest and value, and aro written in plain language for. popular reading.

A bulletin was written to be read by fnrmerH. The subject was one which nil fanners wish to learn more about, and was chosen for that purpose. It was writteu from the" farmers' stand I int and will be supplied free ip all farmers who write, for it. If you do not want it, don't send for it. Tin- bulletin is No. 79, of 24 pages, i-Mied by the N. C. Agricultural . Ex peiiment Station at Raleigh. Every man who farms should become ac quainted with the structure of plants and the forces exerted by them in growing; how thev take up food from the soil and nir, and how they store it i.t . i m i i ' 1 awav, anu-tiie iiest plans lor ineir cul tivation and care; how stable manure mav be preserved and utilized; how lime acts upon the soil, and what soils are most benefited by its application. All these are treated in a plain, practical way iu this bulletin. Green-manuring is also fully described, as well as the valne of recuperative crops and the proper rotation of crops. Some may av thnt a discussion of these matters i not truly experimental in their char acter, and does not belong in the bulle tins of an experiment station. It ia pretty well settled, however, from the favor with which the farmers have re ceived this bulletin, that they appreci ate its pages. GATES OF FOWLS. 1 "Gapes" is a disease well known to most gl owers of poultry, and often des troys whole broods of young chicks. The disease is caused by a very slender, tbj -end-like, reddish nematoid worm, scientifically known as syngamus tra cheitis. This worm is characterized by the permanent union of the paired sexes, and canuot be parted without rupturing the bodies. The female greatly exceeds the male in size. The matured worms are found only in the wind-pipe of fowls to which they cling leech-like on the walls, sucking the blood of the parts. The female of each pair produces 2,000 to 3,000 eggs which remain within her body until she dies. The best remedy is prevention. Keep the fow ls on dry permeable 6oil. Feed The worms mav either be withdrawn or else coughed out by the chick.- -Gerald McCarthy. Entomologist N C. Experiment Station. A Catawba county farmer writes to the X..C.

Whf-reoiily a few fowls are affected a bit of camphor about the size of a grain of wheat may be forced down the throat of each and will by its odor kill the worms. One -drop of turpentine dropped into the throat has given good results, i owdercil asanit'.da, 10 grains per head, may be fed in a mash of corn meal. C ho'ppe.l garlic or strong smell ing onions w illaUolu? found beneficial. turpentine rubbed on the outside of the throat will sometimes cause the orms to let go their hold. The use of a small feather or hair loop, dipped in turpentine and thrust down the wind pipe of the sick fowl is often effective. generously, including chopped onions or garlic occasionally. a.h oat the water trough or pan daily with boiling water If gapes is present among the lowis, separate the sick ones, add to each quart of drinking water four fluid ounces of a solution of salicvlic acid. made l.y dissolving lb erases of the dry acid in -four fluid ounces of clear,. boilei rain water. The ren in which the sick fowls are kept chould be as dry as possible, and the ground should ft pottaVcard. A list of names sent by one person cannot be entere 1 on . the mailing lists of the Station. Thetheory is that if a man really wants the publi cations he will gladly spend one cent for the information contained in them. A farmer in Warren county, X. C. eayg of the bulletins of the X. C.
