We in Florida know really nothing as
to intensive horticulture compared to
some gardens around the great cities of
the north who have to make their profits
in six or eight months while we have
twelve They practice
gardening at a
truly high pressure
High cultuie is threesided it consists
of good tillage abundant fertilizing and
judicious planning as to the succession of
cropa Good tillage is not keeping down
weeds it is stirring the soil deeply at
first shallow later on and often for the
direct benefit of the crop There is no
fallacy so unfounded as that which uses
the hoe only when weeds become
spicuous Good tillage kills the weeds
while they are still under the surface I
never knew a true market gardener who
knew or cared much about
weed In a
certain garden of 100 acres I never saw
a weed unless it grew along a path or
about a compost heap I often think of
weeds as a divine blessing to the shift
less farmer to goad him to cultivate the
but to the wide
crop awake market gar
dener weed is almost
is a meaningless ex
Next to the care of the soil itself the
manure is the most important considera
tion to the trucker He Ices not consider
a good dressing of manure once in two
or three years to he suflieient that in not
high culture Every year regard
less of cost every acre must be heavily
manured For ordinary lands the gar
deners about IJoston use annually about
ten cords of horse manure to the acre and
J its cost is seldom less than 7 or SS per
cord The gardener usually has little
faith in the value of manure the second
year after it is applied lie applies it to
his land in a thoroughly con
dition and expects to reap his reward at
once For certain crops he even applies
it twice a year Even after several years
of this excessive manuring should a year
be skipped the crops vill almost invaria
bly fail to yield a profit
Tuter Hundcreon relates an apt illus
tration of this sort it is not new to older
renders but may be to younger ones A
market gardener of twenty years ex
perience and whose premises had always
been a perfect model of productiveness
promised to run a street through his
grounds Thinking this hind sullidently
rich to carry a crop of cabbage without
manure he gave it none On either side
of the street he applied guano at the ute
of 1JOO pounds per acre Ijjon the un
furtiliiiod part of the contiguous areas he
phnted early cnblmges From the fer
tilised ground his cabbages brought him
11QO per acre from the unfcrtilicd part
HiH per tCICU loss of 1000 an acre
Much has been MI id and bitten about
the ultimate exhaustion of soils and the
inevitable failure of agriculture The fa
mous market garden lands of Arlington
near Huston were arid wastes when the
British soldiers marched un Lexington
as poor as a Florida sandhill and even
llfly yttirs uuo they went called in do
lieJon Poverty Plains Today they art
htuniit the richest lands I ever saw

Now Freight Classification
The sew aoatfecra frahi ttMMcation
went into effect June 1st superseding
thexriaaeification made last winter and
which went JRto effect Februarv lit The
latter classification was made in uniform
ity with those made by the roads in the
trunk line and western territory and by
which a Urge number of goods were
raised from a lower to a higher grade
thus increasing freight rates considerably
over what they had been before
At that time protests were entered
against these changes on the ground that
they widened the difference in rates al
ready existing in favor of the large ship
pers as against smaller ones As a result
the trunk lines issued an amended classi
fication which remedied to some extent
the causes of complaint The southern
classification committee held a meeting
to consider these protests but the result
was not acceptable to the shippers as
there were no general modifications made
the classification of February 1st remain
ing in effect without any material
changes The new classification which
is now in effect is still less satisfactory to
the shippers than the former one
Mr W S Whedon cashier of the First
National Bank of Winterset Iowa in a
recent letter gives some experience with
a carpenter in his employ that will be of
value to other mechanics He says I
had a carpenter working for me who was
obliged to stop work for several days on
account of being troubled with diarrhoea
I mentioned to him that I had been sim
ilarly troubled and that Chamberlains
Colic Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy
had cured me Ho bought a bottle of it
from the druggist here and informed me
that one dose cured him and he is again
