The Crops, The Educational Work, etc., in Cleveland County. Messrs. Editors: Since I contrib uted anything to your columns, a sooth-sayer and proDhet, wiser in his day and generation than the ground hog, arose and predicted a very wet season by reason ot tnirieen new moons. But in this region we are dry as a powder house. Corn, on up lands, is twisting and turning yel low; a wail o-oeth up from the daugh ters of men bv reason of the parched gardens; but the moon prophet, the frog, the snake, the fog, the tree toad, the sand hill crane prophet, and others who are wise as serpents in forecasting the weather, continue to publish their forecasts with the solemn faith and assurance of the Seventh Day Adventist foretelling the end of time. With the moon votaries, no man dares to cut wood, kill hogs, plant corn or make soap till he consults the "alminick," and sees that the moon is of the proper size and shape. The sand-hill crane is weather wise, and when he files up stream you can put on your storm coat and hoist vour umbrella. Last week one of these long-necked fowls flew up Ilinton's Creek, and was pronounced as having a very judicial and weath erwise cast of countenance. The skeptical were duly warned, but the rain came not. Another delivered his auracular opinion that on June 15, 1905, we might look for floods on the dry ground, for he "seed" a fog on March 15, and that was official. The day appointed was COiispicu ous for a brazen sky and high north east winds. - Still another had "seed" a sun dog; an unclassified specimen not found in the lore of the Brushy Creek nor Polkville dog syndicates. This had been a harbinger of rain ever since navigator Noah had his attention called to the rainbow, and bore the stamp of infallibility. Still no rain. Another had heard the tree toad twanging his harp, but dry weather prevailed. The last and most authoritative in the list, is a preacher whose fleeting life has spanned 84 wheat harvests. As reg ularly as the migrations of the Wan dering Jew, he has, annually, there fore of tener than the visits of this peripatetic being of tradition, fore told in every May that this was go ing to be a dry year like '45. He says mankind has departed from the counsels of Jehovah, by following the vain pomp and glory of the world. He regards all desire for amuse ment, pursuit of knowledge, or en joyment in this world, as ungodly levity. He continually predicts tiiat the Lord will rise in vengeance, and then it follows, he and others pure in heart shall be the saints to sit in judgment. It seems that the farmers and the weather together, have advanced the price of cotton. I have been right eously rebuked for my part in organ izing the farmers, but maybe my time will come to laugh yet. A man who is in bad odor amon.? ringsters and their puerile satellites, and among professional office-seekers and their despicable incense burners, should thank Cod and take courage; for he is not far from the kingdom The history of all improvements and reforms, is that they are pro jected by dauntless spirits despised in their day and prereration. Later, when the pioneer has swung populor sentiment into line, the irrepressible office-seeker mounts the band wagon and proclaims with meg-apboni" eo ouence: "Behold I, even L did all tni" Tle cause of education lias had the press in its favor, also siu-h men as Governor Aycock and Mr McTver as its champions. But much of the real work has been done by obscure teachers, who had no rings in their noses nor col lars on their necks, woriung xur-a beggarly stipend, they were ridiculed, traduced and reviled by cliques and trusts, but they have their reward in seeing conditions brighten. Cleve land County is nobly coming to the scratch, but it took agitation, am later, voting. We have a three weeks' term ot Teacher's Institute this time, and the written pledge that the law will be carried out as to continuous at tendance of teachers. So mote it be. CORN CRACKER. Cleveland Co., N. C. Query and Answer About Pasture Making. Messrs. Editors : I have some good bottom lands that I have cut the oats and want to sow in peas, and would like for you to tell me what I can plant with the peas that will make me a ood winter and spring pasture for hogs and cattle. Tell me in your next issue of The Pro gressive Farmer. I want to try some alfalfa and ra.e in Sentember. I want to make a permanent pasture of this land, but want to sow some thing that will not be hard to get rid of, or that will scatter over my farm. I want to plant a small plot in Ber muda grass; that "is tine; I have seen lots of that in Georgia and Florida, and it makes a fine nasture. I don't know if it will go to seed here or not. J. HENIiY WOOTEN. (Answer by Dr. C. W. Burkett, Pro fessor of Agriculture, A. & M. College.) In answer to our correspondent's inquiries, it seems it would be best to seed nothing in connection with the coW-peas, unless he waits until late in the fall to sow clover in the standing vines. To sow any kind of grass with the peas would mean almost sure failure since the peas are rank and quick lh growth. Why not put the land to peas and cut for hay? Then as soon as off put a section to alfalfa, another to rape, and the remainder to rye and clover for winter and spring pasture. Bermuda is excellent for a per manent pasture; in fact, nothing is better. But Bermuda is planted best now or in the spring. C. W. BURKETT. Grand Lecturer N. C F. P. A. Prof. J. M.
