FARM-WORK FOR AUGUST
Is the characteristic work of this month,
and, while it is true that the time em
ploy ed in stripping the blades from the
corn stalks in the usual manner, might
be much more profitably employed in
saving hay from properly prepared grass
or pea meadows, yet if no other pro
vision has been made for forage, it is the
part of wisdom to “pull fodder.” We are
not of those who would decry the value
of corn fodder, though ready to admit
that the cost of saving it is nearly equal
to, and sometimes more than its worth.
Well cured corn blades are equal to
the best hay, and far better than most of
the dry grass that has been brought from
the West the present season. Analysis
attests the truth of this proposition, and
a well raised cow or mule gives it em
phatic endorsement at the manger.
The value of corn fodder depends as
much on ite proper curing and handling
as does that of ordinary bay. It may be
bright and clean, and yet devoid, in great
measure, of nutritive strength, from hav
ing been wet, after partially curing, and
then dried, or from being permitted to
hang too long in the sun. The rule should
be to expose the curing blades as short
a time as possible to the fierce heat of
the sun, and to avoid the effect of dew
and other moisture. Arrangement for
properly housing, or stacking in the field
(temporarily),should be made before the
work of pul'ing begins, so that the hands
will not be unnecessarily hindered. Re
member last season. If temporarily
stacked in the field (and we prefer this
plan) the poles should be in situ before
commencing to pull. The blades should
be stripped and during the forenoon
hung in small handsful by the small
ends to the stalks—without tying. The
afternoon pulling may be tied in the old
way in small “hands” and hung on the
stalk. At 6 o’clock p. m. the fodder will
“tie.” and all that was pulled up to noon
of the same day should be “taken up”
and stacked in single stacks. This rule
should be observed throughout the sea
son as far as practicable. After the stacks
have stood twenty-four to fourty-eight
hours, the fodder may be “hauled up”
and stored in the barn or in large stacks.
But if the work is pressing the hauling
may be deferred until all is gathered.
Fodder saved in this way will be much
more nutritious than if allowed to hang
on the stalks twenty-four to thirty-six
hours or longer, as is often done.
August has sometimes been called the
second spring, because the usual garden
vegetables may often be succesfully
grown as second crops. If the early part
of the month be showery or seasonable,
turnips, beets, tomatoes, etc., may be
started and often do well. Tomatoes
succeed very well, as alate fall crop, from
cuttings planted from the old vines and
well shaded for several days. Cat-tail
and German millet may yet be sown>nd
if the fall be favorable will furnish a
usually much needed supply of green,
It should be borne in mind that the
ground for late summer and fall plant
ings of crops that are to mature befpre
frost, should be very rich and well pre
pared. For turnips there is no manure
equal to good superphosphate. In fact
superphosphate is a standard fertilizer
that may be applied with profit to any
profitable crop on almost every soil.
LATE COTTON CULTURE.
We commend the following from the
Southern Cultivator as expressing our own
views on the subject:
“Cotton differs from corn in having no
fixed period of maturity—frost stops its
growth, otherwise (as in tropical climates)
Ft would continue growing for years,
making small trees. It is desirable there
fore, to encourage growth and fruiting,
ip to the time when any fruit formed
may be expected to escape the average
killing frost. This varies with different
localities. In the locality where we write
the Ist of September is about the limit.
The perfection of cotten culture (if at
tainable) would be the promoting of
rapid growth from the beginning, up to
time of first blooms—then steady, con
tinuous but not rapid growth, up to, say
three weeks of the limit described above
—than a slacking off, with entire cessa
tion of growth, by the time the limit is
reached. This ideal whilst often beyond
reach on account of weather, is measur
ably attainable. The means are, rapid,
deep cultivation in the first stage, less
rapid and increasingly shallower culti
vation during the first half of the second
stage, with very little and very shallow
cultivation in the last half. Such would
be the procedure under favorable con
ditions, but, if towards the last, severe
drought prevails, the question of whether
continued workings will pay comes up.
With the crust formed by last rain
broken, it is difficult to see what farther
good plowings will do a cotton crop (if
it be clean) in the closing stages of
growth. T t sometimes happens, however,
that with a crop thus plowed there may
be small grass which does not attract
much attention, but which when rains
do set in, grows very rapidly and makes
the crop so foul that one may regret not
working it during a late drought. This
point should be looked after and guard
We are not ot those who ad
vocate the growing of every crop
—actually producing everything that
may be needed on our farms. There is
a limit in variety beyond which it is not
desirable to go. The more important
wants—in point of quantity—on a farm
should be supplied by the farm, and a
sufficient surplus of one or more of these
should be produced to provide others of
less importance. Food for man and beast
is the greatest necessity, beyond doubt,
that exists on a farm. But though variety
is desirable, especially of articles of food
for human comsumption, still it does not
follow that the farmer should attempt to
produce directly every article that may
be desirable. The true rule is to grow a
sufficient variety of crops, requiring to
be planted and maturing at different
times, to insure against a general or
complete failure. And this variety, as
a rule, ought to be confined to those
crops which are best adapted to eur soil
THE CHRISTIAN INDEX AND SOUTH-WESTERN BAPTIST: THURSDAY, AUGUST 4, 1881.
and climate, least subject to casualities
and failure, and most important.
Wheat is not one of such crops. Flour
bread is universally liked, but, after all,
four or five bushels of wheat or a barrel
of flour per head, is more than sufficient
for home consumption. Wheat is a very
uncertain crop in the Southern half of the
Gulf States, requiring special preparation
and favorable location of soil, and subject
to the great pest-rust.
Oats are a much more important crop
than wheat, and far more certain of a
profitable yield, and as they are sowed
at the same season and reaped about
the same time, it would seem that the
chief advantage of variety is secured by
planting only oats instead of wheat and
oats, except in specially favored local
If we could induce every farmer in
Middle and Southern Georgia to very
largely increase the area of oats, even if
wheat be entirely discarded, we would
hardly hesitate to do so.
Mr. John I. Parker of Thomas county
has this to say in the Florida Dispatch :
“Such are our advantages by nature,
and yet, with plenty of fertile, all-prod
ucing land, good labor, freely flowing,
never failing water, abundant timber,
railroads, good markets, mills, agricul
tural machmes, factories, preachers,
teachers, lawyers and doctors, we are
notwithstanding poor and bankrupt.
Why is It thus? Simply the overproduc
tion of cotton to the neglect of everything
else. Our trouble is, too much cotton,
too much idleness or loss of time, too
much credit, too much farm, a want of
pride and interest in our business, an al
most perfect lack of that public, enter
prising spirit which keeps a people alive
to their immediate interests and neces
Now let us make up our minds to be
well to do, thrifty farmers, hifih minded
honorable gentlemen, “the bone and
sinew of all other trades and professions,
the independent support of our families,
and the pride of the nation. Let us ed
ucate our children equel to any other
people, and make our homes the pride
of our families. It is not necessary that
we be rich to do this; we have only to
get "on the right track” and make sched
ule time, and that is “early to bed and
early to rise,” go to work, stick to your
work, go to town only when you have
business, have but little to do with pol
itics, never drive an empty wagon to
market, always sell more than you buy,
pay cash as you go, live within your in
come, owe no man, have a surplus of
everything needed about your plantation,
make everything not only meet but lap,
don’t try to put on too much land and mu
les and hire too much laborers, quit com
plaining about the merchants’ profits,
your doctor bills, lawyer fees, railroads,
etc., until you get “on the right track”
yourselves; organize just like they have
done. Let every plantation be an or ■
ganization within itself, and then, and
not until then, we can dictate terms to
them; we can then smoke our cigars,
drink lager beer, go to the springs as a
summer recreation, etc.; but I must stop
this, for I fear, I will lead you astray,
for it is not In your line of business to
drink lager beer and seek these summer
resorts, for you can drink corn and cane
beer, and you must be at home during
the day and during the night, and your
wife must be there when you are there,
and there you are necessarily absent.”
About the Ist of April last, I prepared
abont two thirds of an acre well, by
ploughing thrice, harrowing thoroughly,
and scattering fifty pounds oil manipulated
guano, and sowed it down in German
Millet. Yesterday, (July 20th) I cut it,
and notwithstanding the severe drought
in May and June, got eight heavy two
horse wagon loads of hay—between three
and four tons. I have another patch of
about the same size I prepared and sow
ed in like manner about the first of June,
putting on about double the amount of
guano. The drought struck it at once,
but still I will make at least half as much
more. If will keep my stock well, five
head, all through the winter, without a
dozen bushels es corn. It is both corn
and fodder. The seed cost me three
dollars, and the yield will be worth all of
one hundred dollars. It is all a mistake
about its exhausting soil, if we will allow
it to grow up In grass and weeds, and
turn them over this fall before frost. On
one of these patches, I had millet last
year, and there it is better than on the
balance of the same patch.
I sprinkled about one bushel of salt
tnrough it as we packed it away. This
not only preserves it from mould but it
makes the stock eat it up clean. Think
of it. One acre and a quarter of land,
at an expense of three dollars for seed,
and some three or four days work for two
hands, all told, from first to last, making
plenty of nutritious food for at least five
horses and mules for three or four
months. Is not this worth the little
extra trouble of a day or two, and is it
not better than to buy western corn at
extra prices to be paid for in cctton at
low figures? Try it.
Beech-Grove, Ala., July Ist, 1881.
[We commend the above to the atten
tion of farmers. It is not too late to sow
Germa a millet on well prepared and rich
ground, In Southern Georgia and Ala
bama. The chief difficulty is the heavy
dews that usually occur in September
and October—the time for curing the hay.
But injury from this source may be
avoided by a little extra work in shock
ing up at night.—Editor.]
Bur Clover.—We recommend a trial
of this comparatively new plan*, espe
cially by the farmers of Middle and
Southern Georgia. It is really not a
clover at all, its more correct name be
ing Spotted Medick— Medicago Sativa. It
is an annual, springing up in late sum
mer and fall, growing throughout the
winter and dying down in April and May,
after making abundant seed. It does
well on Bermuda sod, making a good
winter pasture on the same land that
had sustained Bermuda during spring
and summer. It is essentially a winter
grazing plant, and is not well suited for
hay, though we have seen very good hay
made of it. It self-seeding property is a
very valuable one. It produces an abun
dant supply of seed which ripen in May,
and the plant then dies —the seed cover
ing the ground and beginning to come
up in August.
