II IK EDITOR'S CHAIR. i,)V THINGS LOOK FROM 01 J It STAND POINT. The Opinion of The Caucasian and the Opinion of others which we Can Endorse on the Various Topics of the Day. I n k Caicasiam has -made too effort for a Clinton park. One was met with indifferenco, the other with strong opposition. We arc glad to see that our es teemed coiomporary, the Wil mington Sta", is also cranky on this point. It says : "There in one thing that our .Vwitli Carolina eities seem to be Insintr i'ht of in the march of pro (ius. ainl that is public parks. Cli.ii lutte, we believe, lias taken -nine t h in this direction, and KaW ili hits done something, but with these exceptions we do not know of a city or town in the State where there has been any movement ,(r this kind. The longer the selec tion of sites for parks Is deferred the more difficult it will be to select eligible ones in growing cities, and the higher the cost of the land, w hirh enhances in value as the cities expand, making very difficult and rosily years hence an undertaking which might le cheaply and easily accomplished now. In every city or town that has any future before it provision should be made for one or more parks, and they will be found to be in the future among the beet investments ever made by city or town." The Star overlooks the Eccles I'.irk, of Fiiyetteville, and the l'nriott Park, of Kinston. liut to come back to the main issue, shall we not have a park in Clinton? A park cannot be made in a day. If We commence now it will be years before it amounts to much. Catalogue of the N. C- College of Ag riculture and Mechanic Arts. The College is manned by a faculty of ieven professors, as follows : A. Q. I loll id ay, Presi dent; J. R. Chamberland, Pro fessor of Agriculture, Live Stock and Dairying; W. F. Massey, Pro fessor of Horticulture, Arborcul ture and Botany; W. A. Withers, Professor of Pure and Agricul tural Chemistry; D. H. Hill, Professor of English and Book Kceping; J. H. Kinealy, Profes sor of Practical Mechanics and Mathmatics; , Assistant Professor of Practical Mechan ics, with 15. S. Skinner, Superin tendent of Farms and Gardens; J. N. Hubbard, Stewart; Mrs. Sue C. Carroll, Matron. Tho first steps towards this College were taken by the Wa tauga Club, of Raleigh, in 1885i when it memorialized the Leg islature and secured the pas sage ot a bill to establish an In dustrial School. This action was followed by two large mass- meetings of farmers in Raleigh during the month of January, 1SS7, who secured the passage of an act, March 7th, 1889, amending the above act to es tablish a College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts. It provides that the College shall be gov erned by a Board of Trustees) consisting of a Board of Agri culture and nve other persons appointed by the Governor. The Governor appointed W.S. Prim rose, S. B. Alexander, Henry E. Fries, N. B. Brough tort and Elias Carr. On July 12th, 1882, Con gress passed a bill entitled "An act donating public lands to the several States and Territories which may provide Colleges for the benefit of agriculture and the mechanic arts' North Car olina s share under this act is $125,000, the interest on which at b per csut., is 7,000 per an num. This amount, which has been going to the University, was converted to the College togother with about $15,000 o the tax on fertilizers, and it is on this fund that the institution will be run. A general idea of the objects and aims of the College can be gotten 11 om the following ex tracts, which we make from the catalogue : "One of the creat objects of the College is to foster a higher appreci ation of the value and dignity of in telliirent labor, and the worth and rcfipectai ility of laboring men, Iwy who sees nothing" In manual la bor but mere brute force despises both the labor and tho laborer VOL.

"There is no conflict between the practical education which will be given by the Agricultural and Me chanical College and the established collegen aud the University of the State. Taking onr College as one department of learning and the above named, institutions as another, their spheres are widely different, and thoy should be of practical ben efit each to the other and both to the commonwealth. 'Brains, skill and pluck are need ed to develop these interests, and the College proposes to do its full part in the education of the youth of the State as far as it can reach them, In these all important factors. To make agriculture profitable is one of the great problems of the age. With its collateral pursuits it not only has been, but always will be, the most important industrial calling of mankind. 'The College is intended, not to produeetheorists,but practical young men, who will become intelligent farmers, horticulturist, cattle and stock raisers, dairymen men who will be interested in their work, and who will make their work profita ble " The building is 60x170 feet, three stories high, situated f of a mile west from Raleigh, upon 62 acres of land, donated by R. S. Pullen. The cost per year to county students is $100 and to others $130. First term opens October 3rd. CHAPEL HILL.

"There U do uwtrrlat inraffrvs tkt b w ell and prrtBawtt witUout agriculture! pro;rcm." 3rSo many agricultural pa pers are published and articles written by men, who have little or no practical experience as farmers, that, information and suggestions through such medi ums have fallen into disrepute, and doss but little good. In view of this fart, we wish to jget the views and tested plans of practical farmers forth! column each week. So farmers, send in an account of your success in any branch of Agriculture, for the benefit of the profession.nj Rtifr r BU4e4 SUck. The N. C. Bulletin of Agricul ture in its report,of the number of farmers in each county, who raise blooded stock, has only one for Sampson. It states that Rep. W. E. Stevens, of Clinton, is raising Jersey cattle, Merino 6heep, and Essex, Jersey Red and Poland China hogs. There are certainly other farmers in the county giving specUl atten tion to stock. If .such person will report the facta to, The Cau casian we will see the county is fully and creditably represented in the next irsue of the Bulle tin. Have we no thorough-bred horses ? To Brother Faruerti. Spec. Cor. to The C'ucalan. You can raise your own bacon cheaper than to buy it at any price. Instead of using so much corn, we should feed them on vegetables. Such as turnips, beets, potatoes, squashes, pump kins, cabbages, collards, which should be boiled. No one has any idea the amount of pork that dan be raised on an acre in vegetables, who has not tried he experiment. Keep your pigs J at from the time they will eat until killed. I offer the following mixture o preserve health in swine : i One peck ashes. " " charcoal. " pint salt. " pound copperas. " " Antimony (black.) Half a pound sulphur. Mix dry. The above mixture to be put in a box under shed where hogs can have access at all times and not turn it over. If your pigs cough give car bolic acid iu slops, one teaspoon ful to the bucket. Corn-cob ashes, salt and charcoal alone will keep your hogs healthy.

Those who do not wiah to bny Chicago hav next spring at $ 1 1 0 per hundred would do well to heed tl e advice of Commission er John Koninsonasgiveu in the last issue of the North Carolina Bulletin of Agriculture. We give an extract: . "Every farmer should recog nize the fact that forage for next year will be unusually scaxce, owing to the great destruction of hay by excessive rains during the past two month.. It is very probable that the scarcity of long forage for the year 1890, will be greater than has been experienced for several years By beginning in time, and sow ing clover and rye upon well manured lands, xarmers may correct this shortness to a con slderable extent Both clover and rye should be sown in Sep tember, to insure a remunerative crop from fall sowing." If you have not enough fod der on hand to carry your stock through ' the winter, make pre parations for putting your corn fodder up in good shape. Why not save all the latter anyway ? Yon could sell some of your hay; you know, to good advantage if you should find you have more than yon will need lor your stock. American Farmer. Don't sell your hay. Keep 0 more stoat and . raise more home-made manure. ATTENTION. Wilt it pay yon to advertise in the Caucasia:-?
