Diversifying of crops, appears to be
the means by which, if followed by
the farmers of the South will enable

cotton the surplus crop and furnish

In tho Peo Dee section the farmers
have been raising profitable crops
of tobacco, and in other sections of

most progressivo farmers in tho up
country writes th folowing interest
Moore, S. C., Feb. 7, 1890.
In reply to yours on rice, would ay
I have, no practical experience, but
as I expected to try it this year, I have
investigated the subject thoroughly.
To aid you I send with this a let

Hf. G. Anderson of Anderson county,
and a pnmi h'et fr m the Agricultural
Departmnout at Washington, D. C.,
under separate cover from which you
will got all the information you need.
The panmuhlet is very full.
In my investigation, I concluded
that unless there was a mill to clean
it near by, the cultivation would nec
ossarily fail. [ have satisfied my
self that, this can be overcomo. The
Engloburg, Rice Hn ller Co., Syra
cuse, N. Y., manufactures a mill for
$300, and a separator or grader for
$30 more which will hull and pro
pare for market 10( to 14 bushels por
hour. I saw the mijil in operation
at Taylors Stat ion, Greers and
Greenvillo a few wveeks ago as run

(75 years p)robab)ly) aind says he

Th'le trouble wvith him wvas not how
to raise rise, but howv to clean it, and
after trying soveral mills and inven
ting one of his own arnd quitting t he
busiriess several t imes he finay got
the Engloburg Mill which has solved
the question of preparing for market.
