Tho Banana in Florida. Mr. R. W. Reasouer, of Manatee county, •'la., writing to the American Agricultu •ist, says that tho banana flourishes best in i very moist, rich soil, hut will not endure handing water about tho roots. The best [xissible location for a banana patch is on the hank sloping down to a lako or “bay head.The “springy” nature of the soil in such a location agrees perfectly with the roots of the banana, provided they are not planted far enough down to reach standing water. Tho preparation of the land for ba nana does not necessarily involve thorough grubbing of new land, as on rich hummock or hayhead tracts, the simple cutting of the trees and undergrowth and “budding" the palmettoes is all that is really necessary. On rich new lands of this soil the plants may be set immediately after the land is cleared, with no other preparation. The palmetto tops and most of tho brush and logs may be left upon the ground—cutting up brush in the first place somewhat. All this rubbish w ill decay just about as fast as the roots of the plants need it, and much of it can be knocked to pieces in a few months with an ordinary hoe. The plants may be set then in true Honduras fashion, of which a friend gives the following modus operandi, In the words of a native: “In de fus place,” said he, “we chops down do trees and burns all of dey tat we can; den we cuts de ba nana sprouts into pieces win an axe and makes little holes vid a mattock about so far apart (the distance illustrated hv stretching put his long arms), den wo chucks dem in and away dey goes.” On such naturally rich land a semi-annual clearing up with a sharp hoe, assisted by axe or hatchet, “machete” or bush hook, will be all the cultivation they will need for years. On moist hill-side land that is naturally poor the bananas will be greatly l>enefited by a very heavy mulch of grass and trash, re newed annually and rarely disturbed, except to kill such weeds as sprout up through it. When cultivated on high, dry land the ba nana needs different treatment, according to quality and character of soil, location and other circumstances. In Middle Flor ida, where the soil is all of a sandy charac ter, the banana will succeed almost any where where a good corn crop can be pro duced. Thorough preparation of the soil, fertilizing with commercial or home-made manures, and a heavy mulch (renewed an nually) will usually produce good results. In a few rich and favored spots, among the ten thousand islands, and along the main land of extreme South Florida, tho banana is planted and cultivated exactly as a crop of com is treated. The soil in these loca tions varies from a very rich shell hummock to a light-colored clay and sometimes a black loam. We are not in favor of this mode of cultivation, as the banana isasurfneefeeder, and cultivation with hoe or plow, however shallow, will in every case take most of the roots and retard the growth of the plant rather than hasten it. On the other hand a heavy mulch all over the ground would keep down weeds, keep the soil underneath light and friable, and furnish fertilizing ma terial as it decayed. Level or Hill Country. It has been a disputed question for many years, says the Philadelphia Record, whether level or hill country was better for growing crops, but as are so many differences in soils while the modes required for crops of all kinds are unlike, the experience of each farmer on his own soil can alone de cide the matter. The fact is that, under certain conditions, either mode may be bet ter than the other. On soils that are damp, with subsoils composed of stiff clay, the hilling system may perhaps be preferuhle; but where the soil is well underdrained, or the ground rolling, tho level may he more suitable. Cultivation of the soil is intended not only to clear off the grass and weeds but also to assist tho growing plants to obtain and retain the greatest amount of heat and moisture, as well as to afford more feed to the roots. Something also depends upon the kind of manure and fertilizer used, and upon the quantity applied. In an experiment tried by an agricultural journal potatoes were grown at the rate of 1,000 bushels per acre, hut the fertilizer used was in sufficient quantity to supply all the requirements of the crop. The level cultivation was prac ticed in growing the crop, and it is probable that a eomplote failure would have l>een the result had the hilling system been followed, for the reason that in order to dissolve so large an amount of mineral fertilizer plenty of moisture was necessary, which was re tained by the field being level. By culti ' ating the entire surface the fine earth served ns a covering, or mulch, thereby preventing evaporation, as capillary attraction drew ihe moisture up from below, the connection, however, being broken where tho soil was -tlrred. Hill cultivation would not only have required the hoe to a certain extent, hut would have caused the exposure of a larger surface to the air, producing greater evaporation. Corn growers are aware that flic roots of growing corn extend in every direction rind feed an near the surface as Fvrible, and for this reason many farmers check their corn in the rows and cultivate hi both directions, the dreiro being not to •tir the soil deeply, but to koop the surfneo Hue. But on stiff, wet soils bill cultivation is sometimes necessary, or the young corn "hi bo injured from heavy rains. All sei's that have been well tiled with drain tile will permit of level culture, ns the most tetm 'lous soils are pulverized by the air and heat 1 well drained. No rule, however, can be laid down for all to folio ,v, us hill or level culture depends entirely upon circum- W&Qce*. Harvesting Sweet Potatooe. Mr. T. B. Baldwin, of Texas, in the ■American Agriculturist, says that the sw cot potato harvest should begin immecli at,,ly after the first decisive frost. The 'iuos aro dragged off with nn ordinary turning plow, barely letting it iuto tho E ri >und botwcon tho rows. After this tho tulx rs ere lifted with a potato digger. In 1 1,1 absence of thoso useful implements tho "ork can he done fairly well with a turning plow, though greater care must be used in leaking up the potatoes, ns the turning plow "ill cover up a good many. f usual mode of putting up sweet po tatoes i n tho South is in banka or conical K 'up, containing from thirty to a hundred ,!n 'l drvy bushels each; tho smaller ones nro I I'd out olid put In a separate lawk for J'l After piling up tho crop cvwnly the II ;i ro covered with n layer of dry corn k,ulks or other litter, and then with earth, ." i h nc-,1 not be more than un inch and a “df thick at hurveat time, but which should be gradually increased to four or six inches as winter advances. Potato houses are used by some growers i'- preference to banking the tubers. When made witli double walls, with sawdust well packed between the walls, the cold Is effect ally excluded. Such a potato house may be partitioned off into bins holding from twenty to fifty bushels each, in w hich the tubers can be stored away in dry sand. When hanking sweet potatoes, either in a potato house or under an open shed, it is very important to leave an opening of six or eight inches at the top of the bank for ventilation. Soon after being dug potatoes seem to undergo a sweating process, which will cause rot if the air is excluded. In cold weather this aperture has to be closed with an armful of straw or hay'. The King Orange. Mr. Lynmn Phelps, of Sanford, Fla., in tho Florida Dispatch , says that he lately received from C. E. Cutler, of Riverside, Cal., a very handsome orange, “The King.” Size, seventy-six, color that of the Manda rin, skin a trifle thicker than the Mandarin, orange more heavier and more solid or com pact, shape very like the Satsuma. The orange pleased him very much. If it can be kept ripening as late as its period of ma turity in California (June), it will be very much to be desired. He preyoses to take care of the buds he has growing to see what Florida’s favorable will do for it. He confidently ex ists to show the fruit two years from the coming winter, possibly a year from next summer. This is Mr. Cutler’s description: “Tho King is sui generis the strongest acid and in its best ripened specimens the finest orange I have ever tasted. It reproduces itself from seed. Is very thorny and rigid and upright in growth. Very late (now June Ist), is about ripe, rough and free rind, ovals, blos soms very small and with little perfume. Altogether the tree is the least beautiful of orange trees. It was imported from Saigon, Cochin China, under government seal, by Dr. S. R. Magee, of Riverside. I have been the first to fruit it. Had two specimens last year and had two to three boxes this year.” The firm of Twogood & Cutler are well known and any statement,, they' may make will be trustworthy. Mr. Phelps will plant the seeds of this orange and test the reproduction. Its strong character would naturally lead one to the belief that it would reproduce itself, and in our favoring climatic conditions possibly improve. Curing Tobacco On and Off the Stalk. Recent experiments niq*te by a North Carolina gentleman in curing tobacco both on and off the stalk seem to prove that tho latter is tho proper method. It is held that the great hulk of nicotine in a tobacco plant lies in the stalk that in the old process of curing; this nicotine is driven to tho loaf and hence becomes an injury to it. Tho gentleman referred to above states that stripping the leaves as they ripen and cur ing them off the stalk almost entirely re lieves the tobacco of all nicotine, and, as a consequence, improves its quality to a con siderable degree. If this con be substan tiated as a fact it will greatly revolutionize the tobacco business with reference to cur ing. A great many planters hold that a leaf of tobacco broken from the stock be fore it is cured becomes lifeless and almost worthless. This ground is demonstrated to bo false by examining a lot of tobacco cured after being stripped. We have in our office a small sample of smoking tobacco manufactured from leaf stripped in the field and afterward cured. It has the pleasant aroma of fine smoking tobacco, does not affect the nerves, and does not leave a biting, unpleasant taste after smok ing as is often the case with most smoking tobacco. Whether these qualities ariso from being cured after being broken from the stalk we don’t know, but it seems most likely that this is the reason. Thorough experiments will be made this summer to test this matter, and if there is anything in the claim of non-nicotine tobacco it will soon got its quota of credit. New Use for Cotton Stalks. Mr. Daniel Dennett writes as follows in the New Orleans Picayune: We learn that some of the farmers around Summit, Miss., jjje getting more profits from their standing eetton stalks than from their baled lint. After the cotton is harvested they clip the tops and branches of the stalks, clear off and plow thoroughly and fertilize, and at the proper season plant peas for market, a row on each side, both rows supported by the cotton stalks. Thoy say that early pens al ways bring a good price in all of the mar kets, the only drawback having been the trouble and expense of sticking them. Grown on old cotton stalks the sticking costs almost nothing. If this is as great a success as they claim for it, early- peas can be raised for Western and Eastern cities, all the way from the Gulf shore to the Ohio river. In Southern Louisiana the gardeners often plant pens in the latter part of December. Southern Louisiana and Mississippi and Florida can send peas to market late in February- and early in March in large quan tities. The climate will to the end of time give tho Southern States the monopoly of the early jtea industry. Household.

THE MORNING NEWS: MONDAY, JULY 25. 1887. 1 fSi • . r* A thin, watery, tasteless apple-sauce is a libel on the apples and a disgrace to the c s'k. After washing the pieces of apples it a colander let them stp W with only w ater enough to cover them. Continue stewing until they can lie easily mashed through. Sweeten the sauce while the apples are warm; season with rose-water, lemon juice and nutmeg. Some very thin slices of fresh lemon peel, stewed with the apples, add greatly to the delicate savor. Too sweet apples do not cook well. Cocoanut Pudding. —Heat a pint of milk, stirring into it a small half cup of sugar. Dissolve two tablespoonfuls of corn starch in a little of the milk taken out be fore it is heated; add this hi the milk when it begins to boil Stir until it becomes a firm paste, thqn stir in tile tea ton whites of four eggs and after a moment or two take it off the fire. Then add half a cocoanut grated and set it to cool in a mold. Serve it with a boiled custard made of the yelks of the eggs flavored with vanilla or lemon. Molasses Cake.— One cupful of sugar, one cupful of butter and lard, mixed, two cupfuls of molasses, one teaspoonful of gin ger, one teaspoonful of nutmeg, one tea spoonful of cinnamon, one-half teaspoonful of cloves, a little salt, three-quarters of a cupful of strong coffee and two eggs. Boat all together, add four cupfuls of flour, after mixing well add one-lmlf cupful of boiling water in Which one teaspoonful of soda has been dissolved. Adding a few currants, raisins and a little citron makes it almost as good as fruit eako. Farm Notes. Pinch back the ends of the lima bean run ners as soon as they' shall reach four or five feet in height, so as to force them to send out laterals. YYhen eggs do not hatch well the fault is that the hens are too fat. The same is true with ducks. Corn and other grain should be fed sparingly at this season. Bhade trees sometimes require attention. Wood ashes should be applied around all kinds of shade trees at least once a year. The hedges will also be benefited by aslios. If weeds exist on grass lands they should be palled up if tho mower cannot, be used, as seeding of the weeds will soon destroy the value of the grass-plot. No weed should ever be allowed to produce seed. If the lawn lie frequently mowed it should have an application of fertilizer twice a y r ear to prevent injury from frequent crop ping. A mixture of 200 pounds sulphate of potash, 100 pounds superphosphate and SO pounds nitrate of soda per acre will lie found excellent. The plan of judging of the merits of cows by a comparison of “records,” instead of relying entirely on pedigree and color marks, is adding greatly to the value of our pure bred milk cows. Not only the quantity, hut the quality also, is considered, and so rapid has been the improvement that some of the “records” are seemingly- marvelous, The earliest sweet corn should grow hut two or three feet in height. Tho quicker the maturity of the stalk the sooner the ears will be formed, hence tail varieties, for early use, should not besought. Early- com is not usually prolific. The object should be to se cure the ears as early as possible, leaving later kinds to supply a succession. The Pearl variety is the earliest, but it is exceeded in quality by Evergreen Sweet and Black Mexican. Make a compost heap upon which to place the refuse of the farm, such as tops of vege tables that are not fed to the rakings and leaves, and add a proportion of manure occasionally. Upon tne neap throw soap suds, urine and other liquids, care being taken to have all materials cut fine. Dry dirt may- also be added as an absorbent. It will prove excellent for the garden next spring, ns its fine condition will permit of its being spread evenly. In selecting a bull, says a writer in the Ohio Fanner , reject as poison as nny ani mal that shows u mountain of beef in front and a light hind quarter; ho may-get you a beef animal, but his chances of getting milkers are poor indeed. The thighs should be thin ana wide apart, the scrotum well developed, of light color and soft texture; tho addition of teats is a good indication and the larger they are the more likely will they be transmitted in good size to the off spring. In spite of the waste com fodder, the American Cultivator thinks that growing corn and making pork from it comes nearer to making hog-keeping profitable than any any other plan. It is the method by- which nine-tenths of the pork crop is now made, and but for bog cholera would bo about as safe a branch of farming as any one could undertake. On most small farms pork is a by-product, made from what would other wise he wasted, and therefore to this extent profitable. No hog is quite so ravenous as a sow that is suckling a lot of young pigs. The inces sant drain on her sharpens her appetite amazingly, and yet she will grow thin while eating perhaps twice what she could fatten on without the pigs. But no food ever given to a hog is so well invested as what is toil to a sow sucking her young. At first the sow’s fix si should bo milk and wheat bran, but after the pigs are a week old some corn meal may- be added with no fear that she will grow too fat. The pigs will get all the fat and growth it contains. Popular Science.

It should lie allowed to stand three or four weeks before lielng used. Aseptol, or orthojienot sulphate, promises to take the place of curbolic acid ns a disin fectant and antiseptic. It is a syrupy brown fluid of aromatic odor and soluble in alco hol, glycerine and water, nnd is not irritat ing mas strong as 10 per cent, solutions. As an antiseptic it is saia to equal carbolic acid, while possessing also the advantage of pleasanter odor, more solubility, etc. A corresjiondont of the Engineer men tions that two telegraph operators, a nrdo nod female, lioth otherwise healthy subii <-t;, are lieiug treated in Berlin for a newly dr veltqscd ailment, namely-, the dropping off one after another, of the linger nails.
