Opium Production.
Being constantly in receipt of letters from
your State making inquiry regarding opium
production, in which industry I am inter
ested, and not being able to reply to ali ask
ing information, I take the liberty of writ
ing to your widely circulated journal,
hoping you may see fit to give this infor
mation to your readers and that I can refer
subsequent inquirers to your columns for
the information asked for.

obtained, has a wide geographical range

a larger scale.
The two principal variets are the Indian
or Winter Seed, which issom in November
or December, and the Euriean or Summer
Seed. The latter is the ariety generally
used here. The Indian mf be used in the
South, commencing as eay as possible. By
pursuing the above plan ae proper season

and no disappointment erne.
There can be no mot profitable crop
grown than opium wher the conditions of
its growth are complied nth and the same
attention given it as cabhges, tomatoes or
any other vegetable. Tb yield is just as
sure and osrtain; the mrket open at all
times; the freight mere); nominal—a com
mon trunk wilt centaiuseveral thousand
dollars worth. It does jot entail loss by
keeping. One pound or oie thousand pounds
can be just as readily sold. These are ad
vantages that no other product enjoys.
One thousand lollars per acre is a fair
valuation for a beginner to obtain. An ex
pert can do much better. This can be seen
from the followng data: 16 to 20 plants
yield 1 oz. opiun 16 oz., one pound, sells
for $5 per lb. iny one can see how small
a piece of grouid 20 plants will grow upon,
and from this calculate the great number
contained in an acre.
The reason whyopium has not heretofore
been raised in thi country was simply the
cost of labor. W could not compete with
the Hindoo, when 10c. per day is the wages
paid; and it was ilso supposed that there
was no other method for obtaining the gum
from the plant excqit scarifying the capsule
and scraping off the exhude. This state
of affairs no longrr exists. We have dis
covered a cheaper way of extracting the
gum in large or small quantities, and have
further discovered that the Hindoo obtained
less than one-fourth of the actual amount
of opium the plant contained, the mere ex
hude of the capsule alone, when the fact is,
every part of the plant, except the leaves,
contains opium, the method I use yielding
13-16 more than was possible by the old
method. My process for extracting the
gum opium is the cheapest and the simplest
known; the work is light, any manor
woman can do all that is necessary and will
find it both pleasant and profitable.
I would not advise great numbers to go
into this industry on the rush. It has its
peculiarities and its technicalities which, to
insure full success, must first be learned.
Commence upon a small scale. Invest a
dollar or so in seed, plant a few beds, se
lecting a time when the soil is moist as after
rain, attend as you would any other vege
table or flower patch. Observe closely,
follow directions, etc., and y r ou will then

formation. I have no seed for sale, but
Mr. George Reynolds, 41 E. Bay street,
Jacksonville, Florida, has imported some
seed for his own use from Europe; be will
sell some to those desirous of proving this
industry. One pound sows an acre broad
cast; it takes less if carefuily sown in drills.
There are no enemies to the plant in this
country. It does not need a rich soil or any
particular fertilizer. A light sandy soil is
well adapted to it, though it will grow on
the richest land. It stands cold very well.

Hen Manure.
Asa rule people do not sufficiently appre
ciate the droppings of the hen-house as a
manure for plants. Of all the manures
produced on the premises this is the most
valuable. But of course it does not all
present the same degreo of value. The
Irairie Farmer says much in this direction
depends on the kind of food consumed by
the fowls, though all is valuable more or
less. It stands next to guano, which is the
droppings of seafowls, and which has its
greater value in the fact that these fowls
subsist chiefly on fish.
Analysis has shown that a ton of average
hen-house manure has in it:

from the houses where 150 fowls roosted
was mixed with a ton each of plaster and

corn and potato crops, and the result was
such that neighboring farmers declared that

Vermin on Fowls.
Mrs. Kate Griffith, of Missouri, writing
in the Journal of Agriculture, says: I have
received several inquiries from custom ers
asking how to get rid of lice and all such
pests. All kinds of poultry are more or less
liable to be troubled with lice and other
little mites upon their bodies. Some are
blood-suckers and adhere to the skin and
suck their subsistence from the fowl’s flesh
and blood until they are exterminated.
Some roam over the surface of the skin,
mingle in swarms among the feathers and
gather in swarms upon the fowls. But they
are more easily shaken off or rolled out of
the plumage, when the fowls can enjoy the
opportunity to dust themselves every (lay.
The loss of feathers about the head and
neck is usually caused by these pests. They
thrive and multiply wonderfully upon their
bodies, and when the young chicks are first
hatched these intruders quickly find their
way from the mother hen’s feathers to the
soft down of her young. If not attended
to at once they will swarm upon the tender
heads and bodies of the chickens and often
destroy them before they are ten days old.
This is often the cause of the young broods
drooping and dying one after another, and
the owners often not knowing why they are
losing their nice flock of chicks. There are
a great many varieties of these pests and
they are legions in numbers if not iu spe
Whenever the appropriate means are used
mites may be destroyed or prevented from
accumulating. But to do this the work
must not be neglected. Any of them, large
or small, creepers, biters, roamers, feather
eaters or suckers are bad enough; filth and
neglect invite their presence. If the nests
and roosting places are kept clean we will
be less troubled. But we will rarely hnd a
poultry yard that is entirely free of all these
annoyances. Vermin may be kept under
by careful watching and the use of certain
remedies known to be “death” to these pests.
Sulphur mixed in the dust bath, where
fowls are accustomed to roll dally, will help
to rid their bodies of insects. Sprinkling
sulphur in the nests where the hens sit and
on the back of the sitting hen is also good.
Powdered tobacco leaves used in the same
way as the sulphur are good. Carbolic acid
or coal is sure death to them Mix either of
these with lard and grease the fowls slightly.
But this canuot be used about the sitting
hen, for any kind of grease or oil will ruin
the egg and cause them not to hatch at all.
Vermin in the fowl house, on the perches,
nest boxes, etc., are best destroyed by using
whitewash, in which mix carbolic acid, one
ounce to each gallon of the whitewash. This
not only destroys them but 'eaves the bousj
white and clean and destroys all bad odors.
Scaly legs are caused by these minute pests.
There are preparations advertised to re
move these scales, but home remedies will
serve to eradicate them. Mix half lard and
coal oil, rub it well on the legs twicea week
for two weeks, or less time, and the legs
will be clean. These remedies are all useful
in the poultry yard for health and cheerful
The Jersey Breed.
According to the American Agricultur
ist the Jersey breed of cattle was, ten or
twelve years ago, only the fashionable cow
of the rich amateur farmer, who could af
ford to pay hundreds of dollars for one of
these elegant animals as an ornament of his
lawn or well-kept pasture, and for the sup
ply of cream and butter for domestic use.
Gradually It became the fashion for these
wealthy persons to establish fancy dairies
and to make the ohoicest quality of butter
which was put in attractive forms, for sale
to consumers who could well afford to pay
a dollar a pound for a product which was
certainly known to be clean, pure and of
the most perfect flavor and appearance. It
was anew department in dairying, and
most beneficial in compelling the makers
of butter to follow his example set in this
way, or in inducing them to do so, in the
hope of securing higher prices for their pro
duct A wholly new business, commonly
known as sancy buttermaking, has sprung
up. and this has led to the expensive intro
duction of winter dairying and a large va
riety of improved apparatus. It is anew
instance of the new improvement in agri
cultural methods which has heen brought
about by the use of improved stock; and
just as the Ayrshire breed in Scotland, or
the Dutch breed in Holland, induces a re
markable change for the hotter in the pas
tures and in the culture of the soil, ns well
as the farm buildings; and by reflection, as
it were, on the farmers themselves; so the
Jersey cow has revolutionized the butter
dairy, and has improved it more in the past
ten years than every other influence has
doue from the beginning up to that time.
The Happiest Families.
Waldo F. Brown, writing for the Home
and Farm, says he thinks that the happiest
families and the most useful citizens are
found among those in moderate circum
stances, and that the life of the farmer,
taking farmers as a class, more nearly ful
fills than any other that condition for which
Agar prayed when he said “Give me neither
poverty nor riches, feed me with food con
venient for me.” I believe that most of us
are inclined to set too high a value on
wealth, and to forget there is only one man
in a hundred to whom wealth is possible,
for the power either to accumulate or to
retain wealth is a gift or a talent possessed
by the few and not the many. If the wealth
of the world was equally distributed today
it would bo but a tew years until it would
again be in the bonds ol the few- *** nl * n '

Ginger Cookies.—Two cups molasses,
one of melted lard, one of boiling water,
three teaspoonfuls ginger with flour to make
stiff dough. Roll thin.
Snowflake Cakes.—Half a cup each
butter and lard, two cups powdered sugar,
one cup milk, white of five egesand three
cups flour. Flavor with vanilla and bake
in small tins.
Butter Scones.—Dissolve one pound
sugar in half pint cold water, mix with one
pound butter rubbed into three pounds flour,
one teaspoon dissolved soda and two eggs.
Roll out into little cakes and bake.
Dressing for Salad.—Two raw eggs,
one tablespoonful butter, eight tablespoon
fuls vinegar, one-half teaspbonful mustard.
Put in a bowl over boiling water and stir
until it becomes like cream; salt and pepper
to taste.
Sour Milk Biscuit.—One quart flour,
two cups sour milk, two level teaspoonfuls
soda and two large tablespoonfuls lard. Mix
with the hand as bread-dough, only not so
stiff. Roll out about an inch thick; cut and
bake in a moderate oven.
Coffee Cake.—One cup butter, two cups
sugar, one cup strong coffee, three eggs,
half cup molasses, one cup water, one cup
each raisins and currants, one teaspoon
cloves, two teaspoons cinnamon, oue of
allspice, two teaspoons baking powder and
flour to make a stiff batter. Bake two
Tapioca Fruit Pudding.—One-half cup
ful tapioca soaked over uight in one quart
cold water. In the morning cover the bot
tom of a baking dish with anylkind of fruit,
either canned or fresh, sweeten the tapioca
with one-half cupful of sugar, add a little
salt and nutmeg, pour over the fruit and
bake one hour. Serve with sauce.
A good way to prepare eggs for break
fast is to make a baked omelet. Take six
eggs, three even spoonfuls flour, a little salt,
and beat them well together—the more it is
beaten the lighter it will be—theu add one
pint of hot milk and keep on beating. Have
a hot dish with some melted butter the size
of an egg and put into the oven. Bake
twenty minutes and eat when it comes from
oveu, for it will fall soon.
Peaches and GELArtNE.— A delicious
dessert is made of canned peaches and gela
tine in this way: Soak one half cupful of
gelatine with a cup of sugar and a dozen
halves from a can of peaches for one hour,
then pour on a cup of boiling water ana
pass all through a strainer. Be sure to stir
it all over the tire until all the gelatine is
dissolved. Set it aside to cool, and when
ready to congeal have ready a cup of rich
cream; whip the cream until light, add a
pinch of soda and stir it into the gelatine
quicklv, one spoonful at a time. Turn into
a mold wet with cold water and set in a cold
place to harden.
Orange Syrup is so easily made and so
convenient to have on hand for various uses
that it is strange more housekeepers do not
make it, especially in the season when
oranges are plentiful and cheap. Ripe and
thin-skinned fruit is Post lor the purpose.
Squeeze the juice through a sieve and to
every’ pint add a pound and a half of pow
dered sugar with a little of the grated orange
peel and the juice of one lemon. Boil the
syrup for fifteen minutes and skim as long
as any slstim rises. If it does not look clear
when taken off strain it. Next bottle and
seal up tight and it will keep for a long time.
Two tablespoonfuls of the syrup mixed with
a quarter of a pound of creamed butter
makes a nice sauce for a pudding or a plea
sant flavor for custards and ices. Mixed
with cold water and ice it makes a delicious
drink and can be safely given to invalids.
Farm and Stock Notes.
Turn under the weeds as soon as they ap
pear. By not permitting them to grow and
reed they can be entirely eradicated in a
short time.
Use plenty of fine manure around the rose
bushes, keep down the grass and keep them
properly trimmed after they have become
strong and vigorous.
When the milk foams and froths in the
churn the probability is tiiat the tempera
ture is not correct ; hence always use a ther
mometer when churning.
A sharp plow will save its cost in a sea
son’s work. All the farm tools and imple
ments should be put in proper order for
spring work if not already done.
Give the little girls a plot for a flower
garden, provide them all the seeds and plants
they desire and let them enjoy themselves
with the outdoor work. It will great iy pro
mote their health and also create an interest
in other directions on the farm.
As kerosene has been found excellent when
ured in the soapsuds for washing, care
should be taken not to apply such soapsuds
to peach trees or sprinkle it on the ground
arouud them. Kerosene is almost instantly
fatal to peach trees, only' a few drops being
sufficient to kill a vigorous tree.
, Farmers should consider that corn is not
a proper food for young stock. It will fat
ten them but does not encourage growth.
A young animal should be made to secure
bone and heavy frame, not fat. It can be
fattened after maturity. It is simply waste
ful to feed corn to young stock.
Milk fever is more prevalent with overfed
cows than with any other. After the cow
is dried off she should be given plenty of
hay or allowed on the pasture. She should
l ave no grain except at night, when a lim
ited allowance of ground oats may be pro
vided. If she becomes too fat before cal v
irig the chances will be that she will have
milk fever.
Mr. Miller, in the Husbandman, refers
to the fact that recent experiments made
by the Agricultural College of Michigan
showed that the Holstein calves made the
largest average gain, on the least quantity
of food in a given time, of all standard
breeds, excelling even the Short horns, the
Gateways and the Herefords. The more
the good qualities of this breed of cattle
are known the better they are appreciated.
Do not purchase more than two colonies
of bees to start with. If tho owner can
manage these successfully he will have in

good strong colonies and between 400 and
500 pounds of honey. If he should succeed
his knowledge must increase in the same
ratio as his bees. He must also expect re
verses like the past season, which has been,
with few exceptions, an entire failure all

The golden flowers of the dandelion are
shut up every night. They are folded up
so closely in their green coverings that they
look like buds that have never yet been
opened. There is one curious habit which
the dandelion lias. When the sun is very
hot it closes itself up to keep from wilting.
It is in this way sheltered in its green cov
ering from the sun. It sometimes, when it
is very hot, shuts itself up as early as 6
o’clock in tho morning.

A series of experiments lately made by a
Freuch metallurgist are said to have proved
that steel loses weight by rust twice as rap

Acidulated water was found to dissolve cast

this it would seem that steel bridges are less
affected by the seeds contained in the smoke
of the locomotives than are iron ores.
Experiments recently male at the Na
tional Theater, at Munich, Germany, in re

to have shown most satisfactory results in
favor of the former. On the other hand,
it is claimed for gas that it promotes venti
lation of factories, etc., where suitable
openings are provided; and the journals not
interested in the electric light frequently
make this point.
A method of preserving the natural color
of flowirs, recommended by R. Hogior,
consists in dusting salicylic acid on the

served by this agent. Another method of
applying the same preservative is to use a
solution of one part of salicy lic is 14 of al

Fits and Starts.
The fits and starts —using these words in their
literal m’eaniog—of the nervous people often
st rike the beholder as ludicrous. The nerves of
hearing of such unfortunates are painfully
acute, and impinged by abrupt, unexpected
noises, lead them sometimes to perform antics
worthy of a jumping-jack. At the root ol nerv
ousness, in some instances, is non assimilation
of food, and consequently innutrition of tho
nerves as of the other tissues of the body. This
prolonged is, of course, productive of serious
nervous disease. Tho remedy is Hostetter s
Stomach Bitters, that invigorates the stomach
and enables It to perform its functions prop
erly. Soon after commencing a course of it, it
will be found that the nerves grow more tran
quil by day, nightly repose becomes less inter
rupted. and appetite more vigorous and satisfy
ing. These are the initial indications followed
by the complete restoration of nervous vigor.
The bitters also cure fever and ague, liver com
plaint and constipation.
To Holders of the Mother Goose Re
ception Tickets.
It is earnestly desired that those who
have been entrusted with tiokets for this
entertainment for use or disposal, will make
their report to Messrs. Davis Bros., as re
quested, by 1 o’clock p. m., Monday, April
23, in order that the management can make
their report. Very few of the tickets seut
out have been returned, as nearly every
one recognizes the cause as a worthy ouo,
and have paid for their tickets, whether
unable to dispose of or to use them, for
which the management return thanks. This
entertainment will consist of ten beautiful
tableaux, containing over sixty characters,
and carefully selected from Old Mol her
Goose’s rhymes, also a concert by the lead
ing musical talent of tho city, viz: Profes
sors Steward, Schultze, ißo6ifeld, Messrs.
Rebarer, Walker, Edward Harden, Ward,
Brown, W. E Bwanston, Ur. Bulloch, Mrs.
Haynes, Misses Lazarou, King, t'arruthevs,
Bulloch, Coburn, Wakeuisui, Dale and Ber
The style of the entertainment will be
about as follows, viz: When the curtain
rises Mother Goose, seated on her goose,
and Little Boy Blue, fast asleep, ate the
only occupants of tliestage, A well trained
chorus beliind the scenes will sing the mel
ody of tae tableau* ‘'Little Boy Blue,”
which awakens him. and he by several
blasts from his horn summons the guests
who are to be preseut with Mother Goose
on the stage during the evening, and for
whose pleasure she is supposed to bo giving
the entertainment. The guests will appear
one by one, eacli announced by a blast from
Little Boy Blue’s horn, and upon their ap
pearance will be presented to Mother Go ■ e
by the inimitable and indispensable Mr. Ed
L. Brown, who needs no introduction to
Mother Goose or to a Savannah audience.
After all the guests have arrived and are
grouped on the stage, Mother Goose wiil
request them in turn to favor her aqd her
less musical guests with piano tnd vocal
solos, piano and violin duct.-, vocal duets
and quartettes. After each musical rendi
tion, the scenes will be drawn opart and a
tableau presented, which, including the
tableau and Mother Goose and her guests,
who remain on the stage all during the per
formance, form a dual tableau, so to speak,
of surprising loveliness. Among her guests
are to be reen Kings, Queens, Princes, Prin
cesses, Humpty Dumpty, Brother Jons
than, Paul Pry, Rip Van Winkle, Falstaff
and others too numerous to mention. In
this way the entertainment will lie a con
tinual one. The curtain w ill not descend
until the close of the last tableau, which
w ill be a grouping of all the tableaux in
one, making about 100 persons in costume
on the stage at one time. A full rehearsal
was held at the Theatre Friday
afternoon, and all the characters
ad parts were admirably ren
dered. The patronesses, who consist of
the following well-known ladies, viz: Mi s.

Murphy, Miss Alice Bourquin, Mrs. Gray,
arid the laoies of the First Presbyterian
church, and the management cau safely
promise to the public an entertainment
second to no amateur one ever given in
this city. The price of admission is only
50c.;n0 extra charge for reserve s als,
which brings it in the reach of aJ).
An idea seems to prevail that from the
name it is an entertainment calculated to
please children only, such, however, is not
the case; it will be an entertainment that
the severest critic and oldest theater-goer
can enjoy and appreciate,
The seats are oeing rapidly secured at
Davis Bros.’, and a crowded house is pre

of programme, will be presented. Tic first
one on Monday night, April 22, perform
