Buying and Selling Cows oy Their Milk. Tho "North Carolina Experiment Sta tion proposes a plan for buying and sell ing cows. It is based on the yield of their milk, together with the quality of the same as determined by tests of tho milk. The rule is to pay for the cow at the rate of Si2 per gallon of milk given per day that is rich enough to show 34 percent of fat. To this price add or subtract one dollar for every one-fourth of one per cent of fat which is above or below, the Zy2 per cent. By this rule a cow is bought entirely on her merits. It is believed to be a conservative plan, and one if adopted (or one upon a simi lar plan ) will certainly raise the stand ard of cows and increase their milk and butter production, for if they cannot be sold easily for milk cows, tney win soon, be turned over to the butcher, and a bet ter animal be kept or a willing purchaser be found. The result cannot fail to be beneficial to all parties. An Illustration (Trofn a pnorograpn) 13 given in the bulletin showing the ap pearance of two cows, one of which produced 226 pounds of butter per year, while the other produced 296 pounds. This was determined in the above way by the testing of the milk, and shows the variation which may and often oc curs in two cows of the herd. The diff erence is 31 per cent greater than the poorer cow. The milk of cows varies in quality, and unless the quality is known together with the yield it of tens hap pens that cows are kept that are not profitable, and should be turned into beef. A New Cabbage Pest The cabbage maggot, the larval form of a fly, anthomyia brasgicse, is the most destructive pest of the cabbage in Eu- rope, where it sometimes destroys whole fields of young plants. It has been oc casionally troublesome in the United States since 1846. It has the past spring appeared in alarming numbers in a portion of the trucking section of this state. The fly is slender and gray colored, rather smaller than the common house fly. The female lays her eggs in early spring on the roots or stem of young plants, both in the seedbed and field.

Suppose 20 bushels of wheat and 40 bushels oats art; an average crop. Which draws out most plant food from the soil? The sta tion wheat experiments in 1891 yielded an average of 217 pounds of straw to 100 of grain. In 1888 experiments with oats at New York state station, yielded 128.4 pounds of straw to 100 pounds of grain. Using these relations of grain to straw the crop taken off from an acre of each grain would be for wheat : 1,200 pounds grai: l and 2604 pounds straw ; for oats, 1280 pounds grain and 1643.5 pounds straw. From the New York station report for 1888 the following ta ble is taken : It shows the pounds of plant food removed from the soil in 1 ton of 2,000 pounds of each article named : Lbs. of Plant Food in 2,000 lbs. of Wheat w,leat oa.,.

Beware of Travelling Seed Peddlers. farmers of the state should be on their guard against travelling seed ped dlers who, it seems, have been operating in the eastern, and probably other dis tricts of the state. A farmer near Rocky Mount, N. C, sends the Experiment Station a circular rtistnbutea by tnese persons. The following extract will suffice to show how they are trying deceive and swindle the farmers: "TRIFOLTTJM OR SWEDISH HYBRID. 'An everlasting, perennial plant It resembles all otner varieties Hover, neas. beans, etc.. grows two four feet high on ordinary land and is adapted to thin or sandy soil, it is iar superior to manure to plow under." To a person having knowledge or sucn matters, the whole of the above quota tion is pure fiction. The plant referred to is Alsike clover, a short lived peren nial adapted only to rich moist land and a cool climate. It has no value for North Carolina or the South outside or the higher mountain valleys. Farmers who buy and plant it under such repre sentations will be woeiuliy msappoinrea and will suffer loss of all invested in the Beed. The New Poultry Division. The North Carolina Agricultural Ex periment Station has added another di vision to the several aireaay m opera tion, to be known as the Poultry Divis ion. Among the specific studies for this division will be first to ascertain tho best breeds of poultry which can be re commended for different sections of the State, how t(j raise them economically, including the best treatment for dis eases and insects, and how to prepare and ship to market all poultry products. It will be the endeavor to foster the industry in North Carolina so that a profitable and financially paying busi ness may be inaugurated in almost any locality, or on any farm. As but little capital is required, the returns for the investment should always be large. The Station proposes to publish educational bulletins to bring the matter before the attention of the people of the State, and to extend such knowledge to all who raise poultry, as would be of benefit in the management, preparation and ship ment to market. The poultry manager in charge of the Poultry Division of the Experiment Station will be Mr. F. E. Hege, now of the Riverside Poultry Farms of New- bern, N. C. He will enter upon his work on December 1st, on the farm of the Station adjoining the State Fair Grounds. The raising of poultry and poultry products in xiorth Carolina tor market is susceptible of great extension, and this new departure by the Station will. without doubt, contribute largely to that end, and will prove, consequently, of great and far reaching value. Advanced Monthly Summary of Meteoro logical Reports For North Caro lina, October, 1895. The North Carolina State "Weather Service issues the following advanced summary of the weather lor October, 189o, as compared witn tne correspond ing month of previous years: Temperature. The mean tempera ture for the month was 55.8 degrees, which is 3.9 degrees below tho normal, and the lowest for October since 1873. The highest monthly mean was 62.8 at Southport; lowest monthly mean 44.3 at Lanville. The highest temperature recorded was 88 on the 7th at Rockingham; lowest, 18 on the 10th and 30th at Lanville. The warmest Oc tober during the past 23 years was in 1881; mean, 66.4 degrees; the coldest in 1873 and 189o; mean, 5o.. Precipitation. Average for the month, 1.86 inches, which is 1.80 inches below the normal. The greatest amount was 2.99 at Tarboro; least amount, 0.21 at Asheville. The wettest October dur ing the past 23 years was in 1887; aver age. 6.72 inches; the dryest was in 1884 average 0.81 inch. Wind. Prevailing direction, north east, which is the normal direction for October. Average hourly velocity, 8.6 miles. Highest velocity, 52 miles an hour from the northeast on the 4th at Kitty Hawk. FrosU were most general on the fol lowing dates: The 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 9th 10th, 11th, 18th, 19th, 20th, 21st, 22nd. . Solar halos were observed at various f laces on the 11th, 14th, - 15th, 29th, 0th. Lunar halos were observed on the 1st, 2nd, 28th, 29th, 30th. lot lormed in the western portion of The eggs hatch out in about five days. The maggots eat off the young rootlets producing what is often called "club foot;" they also bore into the larger roots and stems, causing the plants to turn yellow and soon after die, or re main as stiMited plants which refuse to head. The flies continue to breed all the summer and pass the winter as dor mant pupa in the hollow stems of cab bage and stnmps if left in the field. Some of the winged insects also hide away in cellars and places where cab- asre is stored, but the greater portion of the first brood of flies come from the dormant pupa in the field. The mag gots feed by preference upon the roots ol cabbage and other cruciferous plants collards, kale, cauliflower, radish, mus tard, etc. , but they breed also in stable manure piles, human excrement and rotten fish. remedies. The first and most essential remedy is to clean cabbage fields thoroughly of stumps. Either plow these under at least 6 inches deep and then roll the ground, or gather the stumps and com post them with lime. Never follow abbage by tne same crop on any nelo. If the maggots appear on plants in the seed bed, apply a good dressing of lime or muriate of potash to the soil, or suf ficient kerosene emulsion to wet the ground 1 inch deep. If plants in the field are attached tase a dibber or sharp stick and make a hole near each plant as deep as the roots of the plant and about 1 inch in diameter. Fill this hole with kerosene emulsion. If "the emul sion does not wet the soil on all sides of the plant make and fill another hole on opposite side. Usually one treatment will be sumcient lor each crop, but ir neighboring fields are left untreated they will breed flies so fast that a second treatment may be necessary alter ten days. The emulsion must be thorough- lv made. But it will be safe in any case if it is not allowed to touch the leaves of the young plants. the kerosene emulsion. Hard soap, xi pound. ; "Water, 1 gallon.

Chum this or pass it through a spray er or syringe until it becomes a thick cream and the oil does not separate from the soap. Dilute with 9 times its bulk of cold water before using. This remedy is equally as good for the onion maggot, cut worms and all other burrowing insects. "When thoroughly made it would not burn the plants, but if any free oil rises to the top it will burn. Gerald McCarthy, Entomol ogist, N. C. Experiment Station. In this case the wheat would carry off more phosphoric acid by 3 pounds and more nitrogen by pounds, while the oats would take 9 pounds more potash, than the wheat. It is a matter of common observation among farmers that oats are a far better forager than wheat. That is, given an equal chance, the oats can get more and do better than wheat. Hence it is ow ing to the recognition of less ability of wheat to produce as well under like con ditions that it is given the better of two fields where both crops are grown on the same farm and that determines the ap plication of commercial manure to the wheat of tener, or in greater weight than for the oat crop. Under equal conditions to start with, the cat crop would produce more, and would take more from the soil than wheat. It does not, however, on aver age conditions as met with, and the contention referred to, depends finally on the condition of the land previous to crorroinsr with wheat or oats, and on the application of commercial or other ma nure made for the crop. Grasses re quire an abundant food supply in order to make any considerable growth. They cannot find it after as close a forager aa oats has been removed from a rather noor field to begin with and but little hell) offered. They can find food after a wheat crop on better or even the same land, especially if some compost, stable or commercial manure was used to help the wheat. It will doubtless poyto dress land well for wheat and sow cow peas on the stubble to be worked in with gang plow, or disk harrow, and harvest the crabgrass and cowpea hay, which will result on many North Caro lina soils. In regard to time of sowing, there is a great deal of latitude for both crops in North Carolina. The custom is to sow in September or October. In the east it is allowable to sow later than in the west. Even as late as Christmas has produced a good crop of wheat here on the Experiment Farm. Early sowing saves some expenditure for nitrogenous manure by depending somewhat on the nitrates of the soil, which may be largely lost before late sown grain could feed on it. Wheat is doubtless more benefited by early sowing than oats.

"A bulletin recently issued by the North Carolina Experiment station (No. 115) describes the different methods em ployed for testing milk, cream, butter milk, etc., also for testing the adultera tions In milk. The Babcock milk test is the chief method employed for the purpose. It is described in detail and anyone with care and short experi ence can soon learn how to conduct a test, i Anyone who has several cows should know the relative value of each, and it often happens that a cow eats more food than is returned in her pro ducts. It is a waste to keep such stock. The Babcock test affords an easy plan for learning the richness and value of the milk. . A person possessing the ap paratus, which is simple and compara tively inexpensive, (costing only about $10r) can easily . test the -milk of the cows belonging to his neighbors and charge a small amount for the service. Such a plan would be helpful and sav ing to both parties. Or else several coald buy the test apparatus in common. The Growing of Onions. Would there be a possibility of my growing a good crop of onions on newly cleared land, with everything taken out and well plowed and worked t I want to grow a good crop. I have nothing but commercial fertilizers to use. My land ia light and high, a KOod sandy loam. How much fertilizer can I use and not burn the crop? Is the "Prizetaker" the best for me to plant, and mnrket under the '"New On ion Culture ?" What time are they ready to market set out February 1st. A. F. C, Chadbourn, X. C. Answered by W. F. Massey, Horticul turist. N. C. Experiment Station. You can doubtless grow a fair crop of onions on your Jand, by liberal fertili zation, and by repeating the heavy fer tilization, you can grow larger crops on the same land annually for a number of years. It takes several years fertiliza sion and culture to get the maximum crop of onions on a piece of land that has never grown that crop. I should use fully a ton per acre of a high grade fertilizer, and I would not buy any par ticular brand of mixed fertilizer, but would mix my own, for there is no brand that I am acquainted with which has as large a percentage of potash as the onion crop and your soil need. In bulletin 112, on Trucking in the South, you will find some formulas for home mixing of fertilizers. If you wish to grow green onions for bunching to ship m March, you should use sets of the Early Pearl or the White Potato onion," and plant them in October. The bulle tin referred to will give yon full direc tions. For a ripe crop for the home market or for early shipment ripe, you can use the Prizetaker, and . start the plants under glass in January, or if you want a crop that can be kept then sow seed in February of the White South-; port Globe, or the Red Opal. The Prize taker is the best for the "new onion culture," that is the starting of the plants early and transplanting in March, or with you in February, if well har-. dened off. They will be ready to ship in late June or early in July, while the onions grown from sets planted in Oc tober, will be ready to pull and bunch in March and ship with the tops on, in ventilated barrels. . ..

But that they do come from heaven to earth and that our daily lives are bkssid by their presence no one who accepts the record of Christ s minis try as veritable history can possibly doubt. Their doSnrs run through the pages of the Old TeatH merit like a golden thread in a costly fabric. The dark places in the life of the ancient He brews are illumined Dy tbem, and every prophet held communion with them and received from them the mandates of the Most High. Daniel, when speaking of the strait he was in, bald, "Behold, there stood before j me as the appearance of a man and he informed me and talked with me," and his experience Is so multiplied by others of a like nature that we are almost startled by their constant recurrence. They shine like stars on a winter night; and to them tl.e Hebrews were indebted for their courage and their national glory. The birth of Christ was announced by an ar.gl; the flight into Egypt with the Child was commanded by an angel; whin ihe temptation of Christ was ended He was ministered unto by angels; whn the- tearful women stood at the tomb it was an angel, "whose raiment was white as snow," who proclaimed the resurrec tion, and wneu the mob followed the Lord, and the dineiples talked of resistance byfonv, He rebuked them, declaring that it neeml He could call on "more than twelve legions of angebs i 1 adduce on!y a fv w out of many instances, hut they are sufficient to establish and empha&iz-i the fact that we are Sren though we do not see, and that beuveu holds the earth in its arms as a mocber her babe, No distance forms a barrier either to our longing or to their response to it.

What a glorious realm of fact is revealed tousl The poor roul that is being driven along the downward path by the fury of his passions is accompanied at every step by God's messengers the mes sengeis of His pity and His love and with their eupremest cnorts tney try to bar his way to further wretch ednees. The lonely heart that has been chilled by frosty misfortune, and falls upon a desperate mood that regards even crime with indiffer ence, is Burrounded by invisible agents who are doingall that heaven itself can suggest to make the way smoother and the sky brighter.

George H. Hepworth COTTON MILLS. The Ews and Observer' Big Indus trial IS6U. The Raleigh News and Observer yesterday issued its formerly an nounted North Carolina Cotton mill edition. It contains . tnirty-six pages of a complete, comprehensive, historical and biographical history of the cotton milling industry in North Carolina from 1815, the tir e when the first cotton factory was built in the state, to date. The facts and data were gathered from a three month's industrial cam paign by members of the staff of the paper; they are from the first hands, and therefore reliable, These facts show that North Carolina has in operation 184 mills, 989,093 spin-, dies. 24,624 looms, 24.825 operatives and is spinning 374,220 bales of cot-, ton per annum. It has invested in the cotton mill industry $16,710,-. 600, 90 per cent, of which is the cap ital of its own citizens. The annual consumption of eoN ton exceeds this year's production of the state by 40,000 bales. Tha new mills now bf;iDg erected and i that will be in operation by the spring of 1896, will run the number of spindles beyond 1,000,000 and the consumption next year will exceed 400,000 bales.
