We extend to Bro. Taylor the right
hand of fellowship on that sermon,
and request that he continue to as
sail them until such an evil shall
cease. Our ministers seem to be
afraid to attack such things, lest they
should give offence and thereby de

that. The members of our churches
are not thrown together as often as

representation from all of our church

that are dear to us, great good would
be gained, and besides, the social

A SOUTHER!^ FARM.
THE HOLTON STOCK FARM, PROPERTY
CF R. E. PARK, MACON, GA.
I doubt if there is any man in the
whole South, wlio has made a ’suc
cess of farming, who is more widely
and favorably known as a cultured
gentleman of many attainments than
is Captain Robert E. Park, of Macon,
Ga., the owner and the manager of
the famous “Holton Stock Farm,”
eight miles north of the city, on the
Ocmulgee river. Captain Park is
not only a successful farmer and bus
iness man every way, but he stands
high in the literary and politcal cir
cles of the land. He is the Southern
manager of one of the largest publish
ing houses in America, and his recent
published letters on the political is
sues of the day mark him as a states
man of exalted conceptions, and as
a writer of rare and happy gifts in
the literal expression of thought.
Captain Park is a native Georgian,
and is somewhere on the shady side
of forty. He is a graduate of Ox
ford; was for some time in the famous
school at. Auburn, Ala-, and this is
still regarded by the man as one of
his alma maters. He went into the
army when quite young, in a com
pany raised in and around Tuskegee,’
Ala. In his command were a num
ber of men now famous, among them
being Judge Clopton, of the Supreme
Court of the State named. Captain
Park was wounded and taken prison
er September 19th, 1864, and for
eight months was in confinement in
Fort Delaware and other prisons.
During this whole period, until his
release in June, 18G5, he kept regu
larly a dairy of prison events, a work
which has since been published in
book form, it being one of the most
valuable literary productions pertain
ing to the war period. After his re
lease from prison, Captain Park fin
ished his education, and began teach
ing in the liigh school at LaGrange,
Ga. For four years he was success
ful in this department of life.
Captain Park has now one of the
most interesting farms in all the
South. In the amplitude of his wis
dom and observation, he learned the
lesson that there is more pleasure,
more interest and more money to the
farmer in putting the grain products
of his. farm in tot five sto«sk at home,
•nd on foot,
than in attempting succeed simply
in the sale of grain and grass in them
selves. The surplus—and the net
profit—of his farm is not altogether
in what is known as “fancy stock,”
but it is largely so.
And herein lies another secret of
this farmer’s success. He has learn
ed that it is quit AaS easy to raise a
horse or a cow to sell at 8150 or
8200 as it is to raise the animal of an
inferior type, that sells for less
THE SHETLAND PONY.
For many years Captain Park has
made a specialty of raising Shetland
ponies. His brood mares and stal
lions are imported by him direct
from the Shetland islands north of
Scotland, where this famous breed of
horse flesh has been propagated in
seclusion, and consequently in purity,
sot hundreds of years, just as the
Jersy cattle have been maintained in
such high purity in the other island
south of England.
The Shetland pony is a variety of
the horse long known for its quali
ties of hardiness and docility, and
for the ease with which it can be
kept fat. It is the rarest thing on
earth to see one with its bones visi
ble through the hide. The fellow
will live on a handful of food each
day, and then he is not so particular
as to how he gets it. He will pick
up a grain of oats off tho ground
about as well as a chicken can per
form the same operation. But the
chief value of the shetland pony lies
in its extreme gentleness, and in its
trustworthiness as a pet among chil
dren. It is in great demand by rich
people who desire it for use among
the little folks of their household.
Any child of discretion and ordinary
strength can manage a Shetland
pony, either in harness or under the
saddle. Their forte is in harness.
They are good trotters, getting over
ground in a manner that would sur
prise one not accustomed to their use;
and then they are always attractive,
both from the point of size and oth
erwise. Then’ colors have a wide and
varied range. The piebald or tho
“calico” is always a favorite. Tho
little animal is usually about forty
two inches in height, although they
run from thirty-six to fifty inches.
They are usually free from unsound
ness, and arc singularly exempt from
diseases, and they live to the ex
treme age of forty.
Captain Park has tho very finest
strain of this blood known, and he is
inconstant receipt of inquiries touch
ing supplies and prices. His cus
tomers are found in nearly all tho
Southern States. In liis published
catalogue are given full information
touching pedigrees, parts and prices,
It may interest the reader to
know that prices range from 850 for
a colt to 81,00 for the finest stallion;
8200 is an average price for a good,
Captain Park has other interesting
varieties of the diminutive animal on
his place. He has not only the gen
uine guinea pig, the size of a small'
rabbit—this propagated not for its
sausage product, but chiefly for pet
ting purposes—but he has also the
GUINEA BREED OF CATTLE.
This variety is the smallest known
of the ox family in domestication.
The cows are from thirty-two to
thirty-six inches in height; they are
of great heaviness of head and quar
ters, and their yield of milk is enor
mous for their weight, it being more
in proportion to size than the yield of
the larger varieties of cattle. The an
imals are hornless, or “polled,” and
the predominant color is red. Captain
Park keeps the best strains obtaina
ble in America. The breed is not
generally known in any country, but
it has long been one of my favorites
in the realm of small pet stock. It
occupies the same position in the cat
tle family that is held by the Shet
land pony among horses, so far as
gentleness, and abundant service in a
small outlay of food are concerned.
But the Guinea cow or the Guinea
bull is never so comely and valuable
as are tho picturesque fellows from
Shetland, and they occupy a secon
dary place on the great farm now
The great bulk of the pride and
capital invested on this “Holton
Stock Farm’’ is found in its big herd
of Jerseys. It is a marvel to one
not in the secret how the price of
Jersey blood has eyer reached its
enormous figures. Captain Park has
on his place a strain of this noted va
riety of cattle that produces a single
calf that will sell for 12,500 at two
months old! When I have said this
much, the reader may think I have
said enough in praise of such cattle;
and yet if further facts are desired in
substantiation of what I have said, or
in other mutters relating to the Jer
seys on this farm, I have no doubt
Captain Park will take pleasure in
answering inquiries. ’
Let me tell where some of the
moneyjeomes in on this place from
MONEY IN THE JERSEY.
There are kept here some thirty of
the Jersey cows. With ordinary
feed, they give ten pounds of butter
weekly each in regular season. The
cows bring calves usually at two
years old. When the calf is five
days old it is weaned, and henceforth
it must live on skimmed milk fed to
it artificially. It also has the run of
ample Bermuda grass in tho summer
and green rye and barly in the win
ter months. As soon as the calf is
two years old—if a heifer—it brings
from 850 to 8150, according to its
“points” or beauty. The single ser
vice of the bull of this breed alone
frequently brings as high as 8100.
The surplus milk from the dairy on
this place goes to the feed of Cap
tain Park’s large herd of registered
thorough bred pigs.
Here is another specialty of this
farm—its and fine pure-blooded hogs.
Captain Park says that after thorough
tests of various breeds of swine, he
has reached the conclusion that the
best hogs for general purposes are
the Berkshires and Poland Chinas.
The former stands highest with him,
as it makes the firmest and sweetest
hams and has the juiciest and best
ribs and sausage. The Poland Chi
nas are best for lard and the side
meat product generally.
The annual sales of the blooded
pigs from this place amount to sev
eral hundred dollars, the full product
from ten sows and two boars all go
ing into the market at some two
months from their birth—all except
a few of the least desirable of the
shoats, there being of these some for
ty to fifty slaughtered each season
for the family meat, the weight of
yearlings running from 135 to 300
pounds each; older ones going as
high as 400 pounds.
In addition to.the milk food receiv
ed by the swine from the dairy on
this place, the hogs in season are fed
on clover and cut sorghum. They
have also the range of the pea fields
in the fall and acorns from the oak
There is a very large acreage on
this farm devoted to grass and the
grains, but, as I have stated before,
none of these products go into the
market direct. The farm is cultivat
ed chiefly that its grain and grass
products may supply the live stock;
this brings in the profit. Some
choice acres are devoted to cotton,
the annual sales of this staple run
ning from twenty-five to thirty-five
bales, 500 pounds each. The money
received from the sale of this item
goes into the purse that is kept for
the actual farm expenses, so that the
net profits of the farming are all
really from the live stock and from
the butter sold.
Captain Park has been engaged in
fanning since 1877. His present
farm was bought in 1878 at a public
auction—743 acres at 87 per acre.
He subsequently added about 500
acres at prices ranging from 85 to
810 per acre. The place is named
“Holton” from Captain Park’s father
in-law, the late General William S.
Holt, one of the successful planters
and business men of Bibb county.
Much of the land now in best stats
of cultivation was once abandoned
areas, parts of the old plantations of
the wrecked owners of the recon
struction era. The present owner
has expended large sums in the work
of restoration and improvement.
'Die hillsides have been terraced,
and miles of gullies have been filled
and brought under cultivation.
For all this property, once consid-
dered but of little value without
slave labor, and costing only some
SIO,OOO Captain Park has recently
refused an offer of $40,000. This
shows what a farming genius can do
where there is a will.
The ground now under cultiva
tion shows 250 acres in Bermuda
grass and eight acres in Red clover.
Thirty acres of the Bermuda is
meadow land, from which some five
tons of hay are cut annually, on each
acre, the grass receiving the cutter
two or three times annually.
There were the present year fif
teen acres in sorghum, which is used
for “soiling” the stock, or cut aud fed
in a green state, a favorite method
on this place.
Captain Park is a firm believer in
the silo. Ho has in his stock yard a
huge one, constructed of brick and
portland cement. It is fifty feet
long, sixteen feet wide, and thirteen
feet deep. It holds 100 tons of en
silage. Twenty-five acres this year
were cultivated in corn to fill this
silo. Seventy five acres on the place
were run in peas, these usually fol
lowing the corn crop.
Among the most profitable of all
the farm products hero is barley.
Captain Park thinks that he is one of
the largest growers of barley in Geor
gia, he having nearly twenty acres of
this grain regularly each year. He
says he can make it yield him fifty
bushels of grain to the acre, while
his rye crop rarely goes beyond
twelve or fifteen bushels to acre.
These cereals are sown early in the
season, and hence the growing,
blades are ready in the winter as the
finest of pasturage for his pigs and
calves, lie says that his hogs are
so fond of the blades that they are
rarely tempted to resort to their
noses and go to rooting for their
livelihood in his fields.
The lesson to be learned from
this man’s success I shall leave the
reader to determine as ho or she may
road them. I shall not here pose as
philosopher to point the moral; I
have not endeavored to give any
adornment to the tale in the recital
of mere facts. I must here make my
acknowledgements to the generous
owner for many courtesies extend
ed me in a day spent in personally
taking in and observing and study
ing this most interesting farm. It is
a monument to Captain Park’s gen
ius and his heart in more ways than
THE VILLAGE OF HOI.TOE.
He has built a handsome and at
tractive village at the railway sta
tion that lies midway his plantation.
Here are commodious cottages,
school buildings, a brick store, club
houses, summer houses, all by broad
streets, bordered by long lines
o£ it ees transplated there; Not the
least of the noble work of this man
is a beautiful memorial church in the
village, an imposing building of
brick and granite, erected at a cost
of several thousand dollars—the of
fering of his own heart to the mem
ory of his dear dead wife, one of the
loveliest of Georgia’s daughters. In
this elegantly finished and commo
dious chapel, all denomination are
free to worship. Captain Park him
self is a member of Various organiza
tions, organizations devoted to benev
olence, to charity, to literature, to
education and public interest gener
ally. He is also a member of the
military staff of the governor of the
State of Georgia—appearing with
Governor Northen as a full fledged
“Colonel.” But the genial gentle
man eschews or ignores this title,
preferring that which he won fairly
on the bloody field of Virginia—sim
ply that of confederate “Captain.”
But among all the honors and
pleasures of this man’s life, there is
nothing that seemed to me to be
dearer to him than the honor and
•interest he feels in the life of the
plain practical farmer.
