Hoth North and South the hab it of sowing something on the land to remain green in the win ter to protect the soil from wash ing is by no means as common as it ought to be. Hut in the re gions where the ground remains frozen most of the winter, and where such things make little or nogrowth, the necessity for it is not nearly so great as where there arc constant freezes and thaws and many heav v rain- dur ing the winter month-. And yet one will see mure bare iatids in the South than in the North at this season. A- nearly ,»li of our Southern lands arc verv susccp tsblo of washing it is particularly necessary to resort t" something of this sort to prevent it. And that is really but a -mall part of the advantage gained. Croat as it is. The positive impro'cm«nt of the land is -o great that it ought to be done even where the land is too level to wash. Speaking of the methods used at the Louisiana Lxperiment farm. l>r. Stubbs -aid, in an ad dress at a farmers' convention, that on the college farm the w hole face of the earth is covered with green crops, principally turf oats and hairy vetch. When once started theme crop* never have to be resown, and the vetch is whipping the oats out. taking field after field. About iSoo acres are clothed in green. Green crops keep the land from wash ing and leaching during the long warm, wet winters and these causes have done five times a* much to wear out lands as all the crops ever removed from them. These crops are being sown be tween the rows of corn, cotton, sorghum, peas, etc., at laying by t me. If every cultivated acre was mo treated in Mississippi, and the resources for grow ing food fully developed, she could grow the beef of Iowa, the l>«iry prod ucts of Wisconsin, the jsirk of Illinois and the mutton and wool of Ohio. We have nc\wr had experience with vetch except toa very limit ed extent, and then the stand was to poor too amount to any thing. but winter oats and crim son i lover, we have used a great deal with the most satisfactory results. We used both of these crops for running hogs on in the • spring and then put the land in ' 1 corn and cowpeas. We got splendid results. The clover made the very earliest green stuff we could raise for the hogs. Af ter both these crops vve got a tine crop of peas and corn. Both the corn and peas had to be early variety to get the land sown in turf oats and clover again. By using this rotation, we believe that the cheapest can be made that is grown anywhere, except possibly no alfalfa or biue gran*. We have not tried sowing cith er mi cotton, because the tramp ing in picking cotton and the shading during the early fall by cotton would probably prevent much growth, but it is well worth trying even in the cotton fields To do this t » the best advantage, the plan of dividing thy_fields by fences, and planting a smaller area and cultivating better should be adopted. This ;h good farm ing, moreover, it is profitable farming, and it differs from our present system in the most im portant fav t. that under it. a man raises his meat supplies at home and get largo crops to the acre and instead of wearing out tils farm have it constantly getting better. These two crops, or others answering the same pur pose arc the ones that some fer tiliser could be used on. with profit. A liberal done of acid phosphate would help greatly,' but a complete fertiliser would do still better. We have never known anyone to try this method that di 1 not stick to it.—Tri State Farmer and Gardner. Who shad say in the future, that the spirit ot agricultural progress is not abroad in the South. 'I he state of Mississippi has appropriated two million -do!, lars for the promotion of Agri cultural education among her farmers. The Senior Kditor of the Dairyman recalls with much pleasure the fact, that he has been favored in the ptst fifteen years with the privilege of atten ding four large Agricultural Con ventions in that state, two at Jackson and two at Vicksburg. In everyone of these conventions he was impressed with the splen did mentality of the men and women who composed them Where the people aic mentally, hospitable ami welcome the truths of science and investiga tion with the purpose of making them their own, there thought and prosperity will abide.
