North Carolina's Grape Belt. L J. VANCB. Tho loDg-leat pino section of North Carolina is one of tho best regions in the south for grapet, owing to the climate, eoil and other natural advantages it enjoys. The sand, with a clay subsoil in some placet, affords a perfect drainage, and this is absolutely necessary. Thus, the development of Iruit culture in this section ol North Carolina has taken place within a few years. Since 1890 it is estimated that no less than 2000 acres have been planted to grapes and peaches in the belt, which is along the route of the Seaboard Air Line. The town of Southern Pines has become the center of a grape-growing industry. There are about 10U0 acres of vineyard within a radius of ten miles. The profits of peach and grape-growing in this section of North Carolina have attracted many northern people. Some of the largest vineyards are owned by northern men, who have dono much to develop and im Drove the country. Through the efforts of Dr. Von llerff, of New York, an ex periment farm was established a few months atro near Southern Pines. The farm is under the auspices of tho N. C. horticultural society and tho state expen ment station at lialeigh. Ibo prime object of tho directors of tho farm will be to ascertain tho needs of tho eoil in the matter of fertilizers best 6uited to Iruit crops. Most southern soils are deficient in potash, and, hence, a large number of experiments will be made to determine tho use of potash in combination with nitrogen and phosphoric acid. The re sults thus obtained cannot fail to bo of great practical benefit and importance to tho fruit growers of the long-leaf pine districts. Tho great increase of vineyard acreage in this North Carolina belt is due to the confidence placed in tho crop. If grape growing in New York and Ohio is profit able on land worth at least $100 per aero, it should bo more profitable in North Carolina where lands may be had for only $5 per acre. Labor is cheap, and the land can bo cleared at a cost ol per acre. The cost of planting, setting posts, and other material is loss than in the north. Perhaps the most expensive item is fertilizer. Tho land is first prepared by being cultivated in cowpeas, which provides humus to tho soil and nitrogen at a small cost. During tho first and sec ond years tho vineyards are cultivated through tho summer up to the middle of June, when tho cowpeas are planted. In order to obtain the best results it is nee essary to use annually a fertilizer con taining about 300 lbs of acid phosphate and 500 lbs of kainit to the acre. The cost of this fertilizer is about $5 per acre. Niagara and Delaware are tho only two varieties grown to any extent. They thrive in tho sandy soil, and bring tho best prices in northern markets. The usual methods of training grapes are racticod by the growers. Some use the tunson syBtem for both varieties. Many growers think tho Kniffen system best for strong-growing varieties like Niag aras, and tho uprightshorizontal Bystem for Dolawares. The North Carolina grapes begin to arrive in northern markets about tho first week in August. They are shipped by fast freight, the expense being about 50 cents per hundred pounds. As tho distance is not great, no refrigerator is needed, and tho fruit arrives in first class condition. Finally, the North Carolina growers have the ad vantage of sending their fruit before the markets of tho northern cities become glutted with grapes, and consequently receive the highest prices. Orange Judd Farmer. Z-$T Of all animal diseases probably the disorders affecting the hog are the least understood. Almost any ailment is called cholera and very little effort made to determine the cause, method of pre vention, or remedy. Although it may be a somowhat complex problem, live stock commissions and stato veterinarians ought to take hold of tho matter and, at least, attempt a solution. Just now hogs are dying rapidly in tho great hog-producing states of tho centra! west, the lows in liio aggregate being enoimous. Tho U. S. agricultural department made a partial study of swine plaguesome 3" ears ago. Tho work ought to bo renewed and carried on lui tht r.

It i.-t 03' no means uncommon to have tho Erfurt cauliflowers sufficiently large for 12 to fill a flour barrei, heaping measure, and it is quito common for 15 heads to fill a barrel. Such, however, is not the case this year, as tho early crop was nearly all ruined by stem rotcaused by excessive heat and moisture, while the late pla'.t ings were nearly ruined by drouth and cold. Occasionally a farmer has "made a hit" this year, ono man in particular having received from the product of one acre more than $S00. This is an antidote for the potato cfop at 25o per bushel and no sale at that. C. J. Y Suffolk Co., A. Y. The Vegetable Garden in November. C. L. ALLEN. The most important work to be done in tho garden at this season is to prepare for next spring to get in readiness the soil for the seeds and plants that are to be put into it. If tho soil is a heavy clay, or clayey loam, put on a liberal quantity of composted manure, throw tho land up in high narrow ridges, and let these be in such a position that the surface water will run off freely. Tho soil thrown up in this manner will, when planting time comes round again, be as friable as light loam. Then all that needs to be done is to level down, end it will be ready for the seeds. This month should find all root crops, as well as cabbage and cauliflower, properly cared for, so that there will be no'hing in the way to prevent the pro posed work for the coming year. The first thing to be done is to adopt some plan of operation that will make the vegetable garden ornamental as well as useful ; and there is no reason why it should not be so. There is no sbrub more ornamental than a current bush in full bearing, and no annual flowering plant moro pleasing than the tomato, with its largo clusters of crimson fruit The garden as commonly seen, overrun with weeds and planted without regard to order or taste, is not pleasing. But that is not a garden, but rather the neg lected spot where the garden should be. Tho lines in the vegetable garden must of necessity bo rectangular, but a straight line can bo as beautiful as a curved line; all depends upon how it is kept. Vege table plants would not look well other than in straight lines, and these can be arranged so that perfect harmony can be preserved, and beauty as well. Don't let the social overbalance the business end of farm life," said Far mer John O Donnell in a paper read be fore a farmers' institute on Long Island; set a day tor social intercourse and strive to enjoy 11 to the fullest. Don t allow the old family horse to be hitched up every day and you to follow, to take tea in tho evening when you should be in your barnyard directing and ovorseer ing the workmen in tho feeding of the faithful animals that contribute so much to your pleasure and tho profits of the farm. The wife and mother contributes more to the success of the farm and market garden than an3 of us care to admit." Low Wagon Wheels from Logs. Select a log of the desired size from a gum sycamore, or any other hard timber that does not split readily. Saw off the wheels, making them the desired thick ness. Then take out the spokes from an old wagon wheel, square the hub, and fit into tho center of tho log wheel. Tho wheel is then completed and will last many years on farms, or even for tho road, if well taken care of. Many of these are in use in this locality, and are quite satisfactory. G. M. Davis, Wayne Co., 111. Eirch Oil, A very large quantit3T of birch oil is manufactured in the wilds of Connecticut, and with a simplicity equalling sugar making in the Vermont forests. Birch twigs are cut into even lengths of five inches and thrown into water tight tanks having copper bottom. A coil of steam pipes is arranged in the bottom, and three feet of water poured in, the tops are hermetically sealed, steam turned on and the water kept boiling for six hours. Into the Bide of each boiling tank a steam pipe is inserted and runs in the form of a worm into a barrel of cold water, and cold water is flowing con tinually into this barrel. The steam rising from tho boiling birch twigs passes through this pipe and is condensed in the worm, while the oil drops from the end of the pipe intc a small receiving jar or pail. The oil as it drips down, being a dull brown, is carefully clarified until of a very light green, and, instead of chemical processes, clarification is accomplished by simply spreading a heavy woolen blanket over the wood inside the tank. In a proper kind of mill, however, the oil now drops out pure and ready lor market. One ton of birch 3rields four pounds of oil, and the oil is worth $3 or more per pound. JYeic York Sun. OVERWORK -INDUCED Nervous Prostration Complete Recovery by the Use of Ayer's Sarsaparilla " Some years ago, as a result of too close attention to business, my health failed. I became weak, nervous, was unable to look after my interests, and manifested all the symptoms of a de cline. I took three bottles of Ayer's Sarsaparilla, began to improve at once, and gradually increased my weight from one hundred and twenty -five to two hundred pounds. Since then, I and my family Lave used this medicine when needed, and we are all in the best of health, a fact which we attribute to Ayer's Sarsaparilla. I believe my chil dren would hare been fatherless to-day had it not been for Ayer's Sarsaparilla, of which preparation I cannot say too much." H. O. Hrxsox, Postmaster and Planter, Kinard's, S. C.
