Mr. Emmet S. Goff has been making somo
experiments with respect to the potato. It
is well known that the potato tuber is not a
seed, but a thickened, underground stem.
In pluuts grown directly from the seed it is
generally admitted that the choice of seed
has much to do with :he crop. Whether or
not a similar rule applies to plants grown
from bulbs, tubers or cuttings is a question
about which much difference of opinion ex
Can the productiveness of the potato be
increased by selecting the seed from the
most prolific hills?
In the fall of 1883 the largest and the
smallest hill respectively were selected by
Mr. Goff from the yield of our sample rows
of ten different varieties. The following
spring the largest and the smallest tubers
respectively were chosen from each of these
two hills, cut to single eyes and planted, the
cuttings of each tuber forming a row by
themselves. Thus there were four short
rows of each variety. The first of these
was planted with tho single eye cuttings of
the largest tuber from the most prolific hill,
tho second with those of the smallest tuber
from the same, the third with those of the
largest tuber from tho least productive hill,
and the fourth with those of the smallest
tuber from the same. In the fall the yields
were weighed and a similar selection made
for the next year's crop. In order to avoid
repetition the yields of each of the four se
lections for the two years 1884 and 1885 are
given. The figures are the average of the
ten varieties for each year and represent the
yield of each tuber calculated on a basis of
100 eyes in pounds.

The results in both these experiments are
so strongly in favor of the seed tubers from
the most prolific hills as to leave scarcely a
doubt as to their interpretation. Owing to
the rotting of potatoes in the fall of 1885 the
experiment could not be continued through
1886, as in only two out of the ten varieties
was it possible to preserve the largest and
the smallest hills. The two sorts were grown,
however, with substantially the same results
as in 1884 and 1885.
Another line of experiments was in the
direction of ascertaining whether large or
small seed tubers were the most productive.
The evidence is clearly in favor of large or,
at least, medium sized tubers for seed. Sum
marizing the plantings of 1884 and 1885 the
yield of merchantable potatoes per hundred
eyes from the largest tutors was eighty-four
pounds, from the smallest sixty-four pounds,
showing an excess from the largest tubers
of seventeen pounds per hundred eyes. The
total yield of potatoes was from the largest
tubers 115 pounds, from the smallest 100
pounds, showing an excess from the largest
tubers of fifteen pounds per hundred eyes.
In an experiment made the past season
with whole tubers of various sizes one hun
dred hills from tubers the size of large hens’
eggs yielded seventy-nine pounds eight
ounces of merchantable potatoes. The same
number from tubers the size of a black wal
nut yielded seventy-four pounds fourteen
Ashes for Manuring Purposes.
There is a great deal of inquiry about
ashes as a manure. The Southern Cultiva
tor has this to say about it: “Ashes from
hard wood contains from 5 to 7 per cent, of
potash, from a little over Ito 11-2 per cent,
of phosphoric acid, also some magnesia and
a good deal of lime. Their value, estimated
like that of commercial fertilizers, is about
tO a ton, as it takes about 40 bushels to
make a ton; the above is equivalent to 21
or 22 cents a bushel. Practically ashes are
a good manure for any crop, especially
when largely diluted with some good form
of vegetable matter. They are too caustic
to be used in drill unmixed with anything.
Bnt when mixed, from five to ten bushels
may be applied in drill to an acre. It may

much potash and phosphoric acid as wood
. ashes, and their manuriol value is propor
tionately greater. But they are so very
faustie great caution is required in the use
Df them lest they do more harm than good.
They should be used in comparatively small
quantities and diluted with very large quan
tities of vegetable matter.
“It is probably best to save and mix seed
vfroin all the pickings, provided they are
sound and well developed. But both the
very earliest and tho latest, are apt to be de
A correspondent of the Southern Culti
tutor nays that after mixing soil with the
manure, about half and half, it should be
drawn around tho plants so as to cover the
items to the. same height ns formerly, but
no higher. (It is a great mistake to draw
soil around the stems of plants with a view
of forcing roots from parts where nature
njvor intended there should be any. Even
" hen transplanted the stems of no kind of
pl mts should be set deeper in the soil than
they originally grew.) Thus arranged, the
manure will act far totter than it would if

the fact that tho soil is rendered porous

The Georgia Crop Report for May.
The crops in Georgia are considerably
totter than the crops of last year wore in
May. There is a marked increase in tho
acreage of food supply crops. The acreage
in com is 2 per cent, greater than the aver
age for the previous five years, and the oat
crop is increased 14 per cent, above the acre
age of last year. The condition of the work
stock is better than any year since 1883.
The prospect of the com crop in compari
son with the average of five years is, in
North Georgia, 101; in Middle Georgia, 91;
in Southwest and East Georgia, 93; in
Southeast Georgia, 98, and in the whole
State, 95. The condition of the crop is four
points better than that of the csrop of last
year at this date.
With respect to oats, the condition and
prospect of the crop is nine points better
than was the report of-last year at this time.
The acreage of wheat agrees with that of
last year, and the prospect in North and
Middle Georgia, to which the crop is mainly
confined, is very much higher than that of
last year at this time.
In the matter of cotton, there has been
little rain since the planting, and in conse
quence there is only about four-fifths of a
good stand, in the portion of the crop now
up. The prospect, notwithstanding, is re
ported as high as that of last year at this
There is a decided increase in the acreage
of sugar cane, rice, clover and grasses over
that of last year. This amounts, with sugar
cane, to about 20 per cent., with rice to
about 6 per cent., and with clover and grasses
to 7 per cent.
The peach crop is nearly an entire failure
in North and Middle Georgia. In Southern
and Southwest Georgia there is a prospect
of about a half crop, and in the other
southern sections somewhat less than a half
crop. The prospect of the apple crop is re
ported about two-thirds of an average; that
of the pear about one-third. The prospect
for the grape crop is reported 95 or nearly a
In concluding his report the Commissioner
says: “While it is gratifying to note an in
crease in the acreage of provision crops and
a general improvement in the condition of
stock, still the reports indicate that some of
our farmers are opening accounts and buy
ing supplies ‘on time,’ thus creating an in
cubus that with even the most propitious
seasons and the most fruitful harvest they
will be unable to throw off in the fall.’’
Rotation in Crops.
All good farmers understand the import
ance of rotation in crops. Those farms are
the most productive and hence the most
profitable on which the rotation system is
followed. The Philadelphia Record , speak
ing on this subject, says that there is no soil
that can be considered as inexhaustible in
fertility. It may produce large crops for
many years, but every pound of substance
removed from it takes away so much, and
sooner or later the yield will begin gradu
ally to lessen. Especially is this true when
the soil has been devoted to one kind of
crop. On the rich soils of the West the land
was kept in corn year after year, with good
yields as the result, but time proved the
error of so doing. The true mode of culti
vation is by a judicious system of rotation.
The soil may fail to produce certain c.ops
and yet be rich and well adapted to some
other kind. The three great elements of
fertility are nitrogen, phosphoric acid and
potash, to which we may add lime, and as
long as the soil contains these elements it
will be capable of growing any crop suita
ble to the climate; but the different crops
do not feed alike, some requiring an excess
of certain elements that are not in demand
to such an extent by others. A crop of wheat
takes away a large proportion of nitrogen
and phosphoric acid, but requires a smaller
proportion of potash. It is plain that by
growing wheat on the land for several years
tho nitrogen and phosphoric acid would be
largely reduced iri quantity, while the land
would still be rich in potash. By growing
some other crop that thrives tost on potash,
as clover, the soil would still be capable of
yielding bountifully, while the roots and
stubble of the clover would return a pro
portion of the nitrogen required for a suc
ceeding crop. By rotation, therefore, the
plant food Is not only proportioned to dif
ferent crops, but a system of renovation of
the soil is also tho result. No matter what
crops may be grown, it cannot be denied
that something cannot be derived from
nothing, and manure and fertilizers are al
ways beneficial; yet the best system is that
which utilizes the storage capacity of the
plants to derive a portion of the elements
required from the atmosphere, and rotation
is thus of valuable assistance. The inert
matter of the soil is reduced- to solubility,
the rains assist the roots to store up matter
and the soil is totter enabled to supply the
proper food required for each plant.
Something About Figs
Mr. M. Kerr, of Santa Barbara, Cal., in
a letter to the Florida Dispatch, makes
some interesting points about figs. He says
that he has liad considerable experience in
raising figs and states that up to date not a
single good variety has been introduced to
California, none at all comparable with the
varieties he has eaten in Italy and Spain.
The Adriatic and San Pedro, so much spoken
of of late, are fair table figs, but whfen it
comes to drying they are poor and worth
less. Tho meat is red and on that account
not suitable to dry. The fig pulp puffs up
easily and sours, and the skin, which is thin
enough in the fresh fig, Incomes thick and
tough in the dried. Ho advises no one to
plant more than one tree of any kind of fig
until the variety is tried and proven good.
A few years ago he planted the seed of the
imported Smyrna fig. Scooping out the
pulp ho washed the same in water, thus
separating the seed. These were planted in
shallow boxes, under a canvas cover and
germinated froely. Many of the plants,
however, grew to small trees and bore fruit
for two years. While some of the fruit is
small and poor, many of tho trees bear flno
largo fit?) and some even very fine.
He believes this is the proper way to get
good figs, and rather than buy high-priced
tigs, with fine names, he thinks every one
would do totter by raising a few seedlings,
which may prove of greet value. Besides,
seedlings raised will always do bettor than
