A Weeting.
The Oraugeburg Agricultural
Society held its third meeting on Satur
day last at Fair Building, Dr. \V. F.
Barton,'(Prcsident, presiding and Mr.
Kirk Robinson, Secretary. After
the usual opening business was acted
upon, the {'resident proceeded to call
for individual reports oi tho amount
planted und present promise of tho
col ton crop. Fvery member respond
ed, and from a summary of all the
reports it. may safely be stated that
this crop will yeild in the fall about
the same crop as the last.
Reports of the oat crou was next,
called and the members, with few
exceptions, gave most flattering and i
encouraging accounts of the p resellt
crop. Many hud planted double the
quantity of last yeai's. plnuti'*g ami in
better land; others reported one-thirl
more, while none p'an ted less. This
speaks well for our farmers and they
will find to their great satisfaction
that there will be bread enough and
to spare; that a s pirit of independ
ence w ill be enjoyed scarcely droamed
of heretofore; ami that an advance
w ill be rn ade in money yielding crops
which will give prosperity to the
entire County Some interesting and
very instructive information was
gathered in this connection concern
ing the raising of oats by then.se of
the pea as a manure It was gener
ally agreed that the cow pen, of our
ordinary varieties, was the best to
precede oat-*. By sown ng ibis pea in
the spring, at the rate of from one to
two bushels per acr and plowing
them under previous to planting oats
ill the fall, double the viel 1 of the
crop was obtained. Indeed. Mr.
W. A. Maekey .-aid, three^years ago
he planted a pciceofiam! in oats that
yielded a crop so trilling, it was
scarcely worth the trouble of gather
ing. The next spring ho planted
?peas on the land 'and turned flicm
tiiider, and planted *ats which gave
a satisfactory je.rrjp* .Me again planted

an inch of ih> land that hits not a
splendid crop of o ils. tie also ad
vanced the belief that cotnmou salt
and ashes would prevent rust iu
It was said'thai Dr Ravcncl re
commended tho Rebel pea as the best
variety for mauureal p rpors-'s from
the tact that they produced more vine
and roots than any other variety.
Mr. Midler said he believed one
variety of wheat, the George Crange
j Uns! Prool W heat, which he planted
! was indeed a mot proof wheat, this
was attested by planting two other
j varieties in tin-same field and in close
proximity, both ofwhich rusted badly.
Ail the se? I of this wheat are engaged
already by parties for next planting.
Tin- President recommended an ex
periment to the members as worth
trying on wheat and oats. Plant
during the spring two bushels of cow
I peas per acre and use 500 pounds of
the ash clement During the fall
months plow the crop under, and
plant w heat or oats. .M si satisfact
ory results had been obtained by this
proeess in other localities and he be

j the authority ol Mr. DauneHy in the
j Fork, I hut steeping w'heal in sulphur

Mr. NVannamaker asked to be in
formed whether twenty bushels of
(bad cotton seed was worth its much
a> the stnne quantity of live seed for
manureV In answer to this request
ii was generally agreed, the live seed
was the better Dr. d. v . Hoi man
believed (hat seed with the oil ex
1 pressed, was as good as live seed; that
ammonia escaped from the dead seed
. through the pioee.-ses'offermentation
j and the oil remained, which was per
I ftetly worthless as plant food.
Mr M. J. Keller asserted that he
w o hi hither gi o 20 cunts per bush
el lor live seed, than 10 cents, for
dead seed, In this connection it was
thought that dead seed msi one forth
I its value at least.
Mr. Mnckoy obtained the best re
stilts by putting his cotton seed in the
stables as be hauled them from tho
gin ui)-! allowing horses to trample
on them till needed for manure.
Dr. W. F. Barton's plan lor using
cottonseed and stable manure is the
For corn, use 12 bushels of cotton
seed und 100 pounds ot acid phos
phate, mixed.
For cotton, use the same quantity
ofslahle manure and dissolved bone,
J)r. Bowman and Mr. J. J. Sallcy
make a comp so heap of one layer
of stable manure a foot deep and one
of cotton seed the same, alternating
until the heap he large enough, clos
ed with St iblo manure. Twenty
hitshc Is of this mixture per acre gave
25 bushels of conn per t?cre.
Prof. Bibikov advises tho use of
stable manure alone; cotton seed
should be used mixed with lime, marl
is bettor, which c ?uso the seed to give
out ammonia and then ^absorbs it
again. Lime may bo scattered over
a (iclil where stable manure had been
use, for ihe same purpose. The prof,
had on exhibition three tea plants and
