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

counsels of Jehovah, by following
the vain pomp and glory of the

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

time will come to laugh yet. A man

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

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.
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.
