Valuable Ifii
ntn From
Cotton, C
Cult
I wish to relieve the minds of those
who are skeptical about our hands hoe
ing five to six acres of cotton to a stand,
per day, each. This year wo had 120
acres in cotton which we have cultivated
with our own hands and hired labor.
When it was time to hoe it out the first
time, we put in three Mitchell cotton
scrapes, following one myself. Directly
behind them my brother went in with
two negro hoys, one only fifteen years
old, with hoes (three hoes only) and two
hours behind the hoes three negroes fol
rith double shovel stocks and two
twelve-inch solid sweeps on them, dirt
rather plowing the whole row.
Behind these three sweeps not a
thing was seen,
two, and occasionally throe stalks
of cotton. All signs of scraper or
hoc wore hid from view. We went across
lng up,
except tho
green
this 120 acres with scrapes and hoes in
less than eight days. Tho sweeps had
to bo helped out by other sweeps, their
work being slower. The three hoe hands
did not only keep up, hut did it without
tho loss of much sweat. My brother had
to look alter tho hands, and would often
he out an hour or more; so we lost more
or less time each day. At no time dur
ing the hoeing out was a single hand
hurried up; on tho contrary, it required
sn effort to keep down their propensity
to race. My brother is an expert with
the hoe, and claims to he with the plow.
The land we had in cotton this year was
partly in cotton, corn and oats last year.
Naturally this red, sandy soil is the
foulest of all classes of soil. IVhat wo

Nothing is guess-work when
we have Nature for our teacher and do
our work on scientific principles.
For more than twenty years I have
centered every thought on corn, cotton
and cow peas, and not on general farm
ing. I have not read or thought about
much else, and my mode is almost the
opposite of that in general practice,
improve cotton simply for earliness,
do this I must have a cluster variety, so
much abused because it is so much fast
er than the ordinary farmer, that it will
load up before he gets through tearing
up the roots, the consequence of which
Is that the squares will dry up on tho
stalk (not shed off). The cause of tho
drying up of the squares on the stalks,
instead of shedding, as all late, long
liinb kinds do, is the same as a tree
deadened during blooming or cut
down with the bloom on the stems.
"When the process is slow they shed. So
with the cluster cotton. Wo deaden it
while under headway fruiting. My corn
improvement is ono ear per stalk, with
large cob and deep, soft grain, instead
of two or more ears per stalk with small
cob and flinty grain. I was severely
criticised at first, but read tho bulletins
from the experiment stations in Kan
sas. Missouri and Tennessee, the corn
states of the world now, and see the re
sult. They support each other in show
ing the largest eared varieties, mak
ing from one-third to double what the
early flint varieties do with two or more
ears per stalk. The soft grain will feed
much farther.

To
I have stuck to the bunch pea almost
single handed for a number of years, as
I have to the cluster cotton. On rich
land the running pea, or long-limbed
cotton, will make immense vines or
stalks, if tho season is the least wet, to
the detriment of the fruit.
1 have also condemned the theory that
the poorer the land tho closer the rows
in cotton. On the contrary, I have held
that the richer the land the better able
it is to carry extra stalks; in other
words, the thicker the cotton should
Stand on the land to gather up the ex
f plant-food and convert it into
lint cotton, in the three to four months
between tho cold spring and droughts
and worms of August. Of course, for
this purpose, we must have a close, com
pact, rapid-fruiting variety, and plant
early on very flat ridges. The slow fruit
ing is tho cause of excessive stalk
growth.
I have also condemned deep spring
plowing, but advocate fall plowing,
turning under all tho trash,
ridiculed the idea of plants feeding
through their tap roots or other roots
below where the air can enter the soil,
or taking in food through the pores in
the leaves. I have exhibited all tho
sympathy in my soul for the man that
makes a practice of cutting out crab
grass with a hoe, or cultivating a crop
just enough to keep the grass f:om tak
ing it. The horse is eight times as
strong as I am, and I can kill eight
times as much grass, and make eight
times as much crop with his muscle
combined with mine, than I can with
my muscle alone.
By deep breaking in the fall and win
ter, with thorough surface preparation
in tho spring, almost every cotton seed
planted will germinate quickly and
grow off fast. By selecting the best-ma
tured bolls from the thriftiest well-pro
portioned stalks of an early, fast-growing
variety, and the soil in the best condi
tion possible, we need not plant more
than a peck of seed per acre. I planted
fifty acres with ten bushels this year,
and got a good stand. With this thin
stand it is not necessary to thin out
until the cotton is from six to eight
inches high. We harrow off, if possible,
just before it comes up. As soon as it is
well up go around it with a'double
shovel. In another week go around
with the same stock, having a shovel
on front foot and twelve-inch solid
sweep on rear foot. If this does
not get all the grass, we put on
two Solid sweeps and go around again.
We get it clean of crab grass and
morning glories before we stop to hoe
or thin out. By having smooth, well
pulverized soils, our drills are straight
and our scrapers will not be dodging
hard places in the soil. The winter
plowing converted all trash into fertil
izers which, instead of clogging, helps
to lighten up the surface. With a sharp
scraper we can almost thin the cotton
to a stand, if the stalks stand half incli
apart and not in lino of tho drill. Thoro

of the Osage Orange and the
Hedge Plants.
We know of no plant that is superior
to the Osage orange for a hedge plant.
It is obnoxious to the objection that it
is naturally inclined to grow too large;
but this tendency may largely be con
troled by judicious pruning and cutting
back. This plant is in almost universal
use in tho West, as was observed by
those who were parties to the recent
farmers' excursion to Ohio.
Cartney rose is also a good hedge plant,
and is preferred by some to any. It does
hotter when combined with a ditch and
bank. Cut a ditch
proposed hedge row, say three feet wide
at the top, and sloping according to the
character of the soil, so that it may bo
two and a half or three feet wide and
t#o feet deep. Throw the soil on the
inside so as to make a bank of the
same cross section as the ditch. Pre
pare the cuttings by taking the current
year's growth in November, cutting in
lengths of about eight inches. Plow the
ground and manure it, if not, already
rich, along tho inner side of the bank.
Set the cuttings ono foot apart along the
row if abundant; if scarce they may be
put several foot apart, and made closer
by subsequently layering tho bottom
shoots. It is best to start with rooted
cuttings. As the plants grow now they
should be trained to grow up the side of
tho bank. Of course if an effectivo
fence is wanted at once, it will be neces
sary to have a straight four or five-rail
high fence along tho top of tho bank,
upon which, the rose plants will be
trained as they grow. The hedge should
be cut back every November so as to
give a bushy, thick growth. The single
white McCartney rose is tho best; the
Cherokee rose is not recommended.—

—A good-for-nothing cow in the herd

—The paunch of a cow, Prof. Arnold
says, is a silo in miniature. That is to

take place in the silo and in the paunch
are the same.

—You can overfeed as well as under

Give good nourishing food from tho
start, but do not force them; they are
neither hogs nor steers, and tho early*
maturity business may bo overdone if
you try to force them.
—Push the business of raising sheep
and growing wool, but observe reason
able limits. If every body goes to stock
ing up heavily with sheep, down go tho
profits. Keep a reasonable-sized flock
on the farm and there will be money in
the business.
—A "warm mash" on a cold day, early
in tho morning, is an excelent invigor
ator for an animal that does not have an
appetite. For brood-mares that aro
suckling colts it is excelent.
—We speak of a million bushels of
wheat as if it were a small thing, and it
is when compared with the hundreds of
millions of grain annually produced. But
a train loaded with five hundred bushels
in a car would have to be about fifteen
miles long to carry ono million bushels.

and gravel.
—Lime is said to make heavy soils
lighter and light soils heavier. As it
can do no damage when judiciously ap
plied, and is cheap when compared with
the benefits it confers, it should be used
on every farm. Land that is frequently
supplied with lime produces the best
grass.
—If the hoofs of sheep are pared so as
to keep the growth from being excess
ive there will ho less liability of foot
rot. The hoof grows faster on soft
ground than on stony locations, and tho
foot-rot appears sooner when the sheep
are kept on damp fields, much of it be
ing due to failure in keeping tho hoofs
pared.
—Young stock of all kinds are easily
and quickly affected by sudden changes
of the weather. If affected by sevore
cold they are liable to be stunted, and
will grow but little before the spring.
Exposures to cold and dampness is one
of tho principal causes of scours and
cold on the bowels of young stock.
—Wherever sheep feed, new, sweet
grasses flourish and weeds are destroyed,
says tho Kansas Farmer. For this rea

unless they gain the conlidenee of these
shrewd Yankees, are kept in the dark.
The birds are allowed to roam at their
own free will, to subsist on grasshop
pers, crickets and snakes until a fort
night before Thanksgiving. It is then
that the farmers spread themselves and
fatten the fowls mechanically, as it
were. There are several different ways
from which great results are attained.
One of the popular forms is to * nurse
them." Each turkey is taken be
tween tho farmer's legs and hot corn
meal is stuffed down its throat with a
spoon. After the first injection the
turkeys take naturally to the means em
ployed to feed them, and they are al
ways ready at meal times thereafter
to have the operation repeated. This is
the commonest method.
ith
Only the natives,
Strangers,
Another popular ono, however, con
sists of feeding the turkeys on walnuts
for a week or two previous to slaughter
ing day. A walnut, greased in fat, is
given to the bird, and it slips down the
willowy throat with ease. Care, how
ever, is exercised that the nuts are not
cracked or rough, as those would injure
the turkey's throat. One nut is given
each bird the first day, two the second,
three the third, four the fourth, five the
fifth, and so on, increasing one daily for
a week. If the bird does not pick up
then the diet is again taken up, but the
serving form is reversed. Seven are
given the first day, six the second, and
so on during the remainder of the week.
By that time the birds are plump and
fat, tho walnuts Icing possessed of a
certain nutriment which is of rare worth
to turkeys. Never did this mothod
fail.
Very few people have an adequate
idea of the extent of the turkdfy farming
business in North Stonington. Even
some life-long residents of the city as
they devour a piece of the juicy meat for
dinner do not know that that meat is
virtually native. Any one, however,
who cares to penetrate those forest fast
nesses can learn many interesting things.
All along tho highways waddle turkeys.
They march in endless numbers. In tho
early spring they forage for hatching
places, and require absolutely no atten
tion whatever. Behind huge piles of
stone, with which tho roads are lined,
can be discerned a dozen or more big
eggs, and in holes excavated from a
sandbank are sitting turkey hens.
The monster flocks, sometimes num
bering hundreds of fowl in each, gather
in the barn-yard only once a day for an
early meal on corn. The rest of the day
they hustle for themselves.
One of the most interesting features
of the turkey business is tho way
turkeys arc put on the market. The
farmer who dallies in this branch of the
bucolic profession is blessed with one
article which he does not have to cart a
dozen or more miles to town and hawk
around from door to door. All that he
has to do is to stand at his front gate,
whittle his pine stick and wait,
won't be compelled to wait long. Be
fore ho can mutilate tho stick much a
collector will come hustling along tho
highway in a big wagon.
These collectors arc city dealers'
brokers. They come to this section
year after year and buy thousands of
pounds of turkeys every season. They
pay tho farmer from eighteen to twenty
five cents per pound for his crop, while
a Vermont bird can he bought for the
former price at retail. The farmers
know the value and quality of their
turkeys, so do the collectors, and they
are willing to pay well for the Connecti
on t-rearod ones. The collectors canvass
the town thoroughly, making theii
headquarters at some central point,
from which prompt transportation to the
New York, Providence and Boston
markets can be had.
For years it was customary for the
late Senator Anthony to offer a prize for
the biggest and fattest turkey raised in
North Stonington, which he always sent
to the White House for the President's
Thanksgiving dinner. That turkey
never weighed less than twenty-fiv'o
pounds. Since Senator Anthony's death,
however, the custom has not been
so rigidity enforced. The farmersaro ex

sions have expressed their patriotism by

THE WOMEN'S HUNT.
Females Put On Men's dollies in Order
to Drive Away Evil Spirits.
A very curious custom is that called
the women's hunt, which prevails among
Rome of the aboriginal tribes of Chota
Nagpore, India. It is observed when
ever any calamity falls upon the com
munity-such as, perhaps, a visitation
of cholera.
The women put on men's clothes, take
up arms and go a-hunting—not in the
jungles, but in the nearest village east
of them. They chase pigs and fowls,
take as their own every thing they kill
and levy blackmail from tho heads of
the villages for the purchase of liquor,
else they allow themselves lo bo
bought off for a small sum of money and
a pig. Toward evening the hunting
party retire to a stream, cook and eat
their meal, drink their liquor and then
return home, having acquitted them
selves during the day in a thoroughly
masculine and boisterous manner.
Then the village that has been visited
goes on a similar excursion to the vil
lage east of it, and so on to the eastern
border of the district. By this series qf
excursions it is supposed that the evil
spirit is safely conducted out of the dis
trict without offending its dignity.—
