| Anower—From your doficrlption of the ja.no,
! and of the cotton plants and their behavior,
I I agree with you tn your suggestion that y<> 1
I have too much ammonia in It. I do not know
| of any direct cure for tbi? difficulty. If you
wish to plant It in cotton you may add a
fertilizer containing nothing but
acid, which would tend to develop fruix rather
than "weed.” But my belief is that the land
is not in condition to plant cotton, and should ,
1 bo devoted to Indian corn, oats, grass, tor lr- 1
i stance o cr op ot sorghum or tome other crop ;
that requivt s a very rich, hh-;l?iy nitrogenous
soil. I believe lend can be made too rich for
profitable cotton product lor. I will suggest
I that If you plant It in cotton, that you use
f nothing but acid phosphate, say 300 to 500
. pounds per acre, and that yon select an early
variety of cotton, such as King’s Improved,
; or some other variety of that type.

I have it very well drained with open
ditches, and have it arranged so that no water
stands On it or runs on it except what falls
on the land. I cultivate ub is usually done
by the average fanner. I run a center furrow,
put In the fertilizer and bed on it, and then
work to keep it clean. I don’t break very
deep—only one mulu to the plow—the land be
ing very soft and no clay subsoil. This piece
of land has been cleared about forty years. I
suppose. If you will answer and give me In
formation desired through the great Farm and
Farmers department you will confer a great
favor on an old subscriber and ar. admirer of
the F. and F. department.
Answer—-Since you do not at ata that you
have ever applied any ferti Izer to the land
In question tliat contained potash, the sug
gestion occurs that potash Is needed. Suppose
you try (for corn) formula No. I, so often
published in this department, ae folio wh:
Acid phosphate (14 per cent).. .. ..1,000 lbs.
Muriate ot’ potash 30 ”
Cotton seed meal 1.250
2,280 ”
Th* above Is the regular com formula for
i ordinary uplands. It would bo well to In
i crease the muriate to 50 pounds and reduce
. the cotton seed meal tn 1,000 pounds.
For cotton, use the following?
1 Add phosphate • 14 re;* cent)l,ooo lbs.
Muriate of jiotash 7’5
i Cotton seel meal 700
L 775 -
The above If aJso the rr.gulsr formula for ;
! cotton on old uplands. You might modify 1’ j
J by increasing the muriate to 100 pounds and ■
■ reducing the cotton seed meal to 500 pounds .
|ln either oa«e. If kaintt bo more c< ir enh’.'t, j
I you might substitute it for the muriate c-f ,
potash, using 4 pounda of kainit for each ;
, jx>nnd of murta-t* in the formula.
i The above are only auggrstions--based on
your exjperlments. You should never use
j sound cotton directly ns a manure, If you
> can exchange them on fair terms for meal,
I say 1,200 to 1,400 pounds of meai for each
ton. of seed,

Wheat, rye and crimson clover are beneficial
to the soil to the extent to which they s-tvo

leave the stubble on the fields than to plow

on the land, and especially If Hme Is applied.
Later on rye may be seeded If wheat is not
deshed. Tne object should be tn cover the
land as a protection from loss, as the roots
of tho -plants serve to arreet the waste of

manure, and no estimate *f loss can be

manure, and a.ny adulterations will become
a.rparent when the manure Is applied to the
land. Nutritious food not only promotes
greater produ- ti->n on the part of the anl

the animal, it enters the manue heap in a
condition which renders it more liable to

Tlie Instructor fin butter-making at the
Ontario Agricultural College says that as an
average, on thirty-six farms where the milk
was tested for butter fat, tho separator saved
one pound of butter per cow each lyeck over
the gravity methods of setting, or 40 pounds,
worth SO. In the season of 40 weeks. A
herd of 10 cows would yield S6O more In that
time If tho separator was used, which would
soon repay its cost, besides the advantage
of less labor in caring for It and that, even
greater, of having tho skim milk perfectly
fresh for feeding to calves and xiies. And
if the cream Is taken to a creamery there Is
a lighter load In going and on load return
A good cow should produce at least on*
- pound of butter per day. This Is not an
extraordinary performanca for ar. individual,

( all the animals in a herd come up to such

; Popular Beliefs Concerning- Them
That Are Deeply Booted.
(New York Evening Post.)
I Then- are some popular beliefs not
! quite class-iblo ns superstitions which
• seem too deeply rooted for universal - d
i ircatlori to destroy. Several of these con
cern mad dogs The idea that a healthy
dog which bites a person must be killed
because if i* should at some future time
go rmd the person bitten would have hy
drophobia. Is reluctantly given up. “ven
bv some persons of education, bn n
more strange Is the belle) in mud
stones,** about which much ha.- be a
printed of late. There are many "mad
stones" In this country, and .lie believ< s
in their efficacy always know where *he
nearest one Is kept. In a sense these
jHtroiis stones are public institutions.
Some of them have curious histories.
j t hie Was the property ot an Or.io negio
named Depp, ami on his death was
placed In the state library at Columbus,
from Which, according to reports, it w a
recently taken and applied to the wound
of a woman bitten by a supposedly rabid
dog. The same report stated that the
d-’g was not mad. after all, but that the
woman receivr-.l blood poison ti'Otn the
stone and died. The stone's career of
healing should be ended by now.
A Virginia newspap -r recalls that an
other “madstone’’ was kept at the state
penitentiary for many years and .va ; .
tree tor the use of any person who want
ed it appiieti to ' l bi' ' (,r ot.-i'-r wound,
latter a “madstone." wbicli may perhaps
have been the same specimen, was sold
at auction tn the country for 539.
Perhaps the stone having the most rc- j
markabk history is in St. Louis, and «ne
of its 'cures’’ has recently been exploited ;
in the newspapers. It was brought to
this country 1367 by a Russian phy
sician who settled in Nevada. He said
that the stone had been used in Russia
for 15 years, in proof of which fact he ;
submitted document? written on parch- ;
ment in Russian, which the people in ;
Nevada had to take on faith, as they i
could not read the. language. He offered ;
■the stone for sale at. $1,500. and a farmer
who hod seen a similar stone elsewhere |
and had faith In it agitated the formation j
of a stock company to buy the stone. 1
About a thousand stockholders paid $1 ,
I eaeh and the remaining sum necess r-.
j was contributed by the present owtie*
I The stone was used on all the animals
! and most persons that were bitien
; dogs. In at least one case, the own’*
Isays, the dog was not shot on the sp- .
but kept until It died of unmlstakabb-

this stone that the neighbors are willlac
! to believe that an offer of $3,000 for It
I lias been refused.
