Tho Banana in Florida.
Mr. R. W. Reasouer, of Manatee county,
•'la., writing to the American Agricultu
•ist, says that tho banana flourishes best in
i very moist, rich soil, hut will not endure
handing water about tho roots. The best
[xissible location for a banana patch is on
the hank sloping down to a lako or “bay
head.The “springy” nature of the soil in
such a location agrees perfectly with the
roots of the banana, provided they are not
planted far enough down to reach standing
water. Tho preparation of the land for ba
nana does not necessarily involve thorough
grubbing of new land, as on rich hummock
or hayhead tracts, the simple cutting of the
trees and undergrowth and “budding" the
palmettoes is all that is really necessary.
On rich new lands of this soil the plants
may be set immediately after the land is
cleared, with no other preparation. The
palmetto tops and most of tho brush and
logs may be left upon the ground—cutting
up brush in the first place somewhat. All
this rubbish w ill decay just about as fast as
the roots of the plants need it, and much of
it can be knocked to pieces in a few months
with an ordinary hoe. The plants may be
set then in true Honduras fashion, of which
a friend gives the following modus operandi,
In the words of a native: “In de fus place,”
said he, “we chops down do trees and burns
all of dey tat we can; den we cuts de ba
nana sprouts into pieces win an axe and
makes little holes vid a mattock about so far
apart (the distance illustrated hv stretching
put his long arms), den wo chucks dem in
and away dey goes.”
On such naturally rich land a semi-annual
clearing up with a sharp hoe, assisted by axe
or hatchet, “machete” or bush hook, will be
all the cultivation they will need for years.
On moist hill-side land that is naturally poor
the bananas will be greatly l>enefited by a
very heavy mulch of grass and trash, re
newed annually and rarely disturbed, except
to kill such weeds as sprout up through it.
When cultivated on high, dry land the ba
nana needs different treatment, according
to quality and character of soil, location
and other circumstances. In Middle Flor
ida, where the soil is all of a sandy charac
ter, the banana will succeed almost any
where where a good corn crop can be pro
duced. Thorough preparation of the soil,
fertilizing with commercial or home-made
manures, and a heavy mulch (renewed an
nually) will usually produce good results.
In a few rich and favored spots, among the
ten thousand islands, and along the main
land of extreme South Florida, tho banana
is planted and cultivated exactly as a crop
of com is treated. The soil in these loca
tions varies from a very rich shell hummock
to a light-colored clay and sometimes a black
loam. We are not in favor of this mode of
cultivation, as the banana isasurfneefeeder,
and cultivation with hoe or plow, however
shallow, will in every case take most of the
roots and retard the growth of the plant
rather than hasten it. On the other hand
a heavy mulch all over the ground would
keep down weeds, keep the soil underneath
light and friable, and furnish fertilizing ma
terial as it decayed.
Level or Hill Country.
It has been a disputed question for many
years, says the Philadelphia Record, whether
level or hill country was better for growing
crops, but as are so many differences
in soils while the modes required for crops
of all kinds are unlike, the experience of
each farmer on his own soil can alone de
cide the matter. The fact is that, under
certain conditions, either mode may be bet
ter than the other. On soils that are damp,
with subsoils composed of stiff clay, the
hilling system may perhaps be preferuhle;
but where the soil is well underdrained, or
the ground rolling, tho level may he more
suitable. Cultivation of the soil is intended
not only to clear off the grass and weeds but
also to assist tho growing plants to obtain
and retain the greatest amount of heat and
moisture, as well as to afford more feed to
the roots. Something also depends upon the
kind of manure and fertilizer used, and upon
the quantity applied. In an experiment
tried by an agricultural journal potatoes
were grown at the rate of 1,000 bushels per
acre, hut the fertilizer used was in sufficient
quantity to supply all the requirements of
the crop. The level cultivation was prac
ticed in growing the crop, and it is probable
that a eomplote failure would have l>een the
result had the hilling system been followed,
for the reason that in order to dissolve so
large an amount of mineral fertilizer plenty
of moisture was necessary, which was re
tained by the field being level. By culti
' ating the entire surface the fine earth served
ns a covering, or mulch, thereby preventing
evaporation, as capillary attraction drew
ihe moisture up from below, the connection,
however, being broken where tho soil was
-tlrred. Hill cultivation would not only
have required the hoe to a certain extent,
hut would have caused the exposure of a
larger surface to the air, producing greater
evaporation. Corn growers are aware that
flic roots of growing corn extend in every
direction rind feed an near the surface as
Fvrible, and for this reason many farmers
check their corn in the rows and cultivate
hi both directions, the dreiro being not to
•tir the soil deeply, but to koop the surfneo
Hue. But on stiff, wet soils bill cultivation
is sometimes necessary, or the young corn
"hi bo injured from heavy rains. All sei's
that have been well tiled with drain tile will
permit of level culture, ns the most tetm
'lous soils are pulverized by the air and heat
1 well drained. No rule, however, can be
laid down for all to folio ,v, us hill or level
culture depends entirely upon circum-
Harvesting Sweet Potatooe.
Mr. T. B. Baldwin, of Texas, in the
■American Agriculturist, says that the
sw cot potato harvest should begin immecli
at,,ly after the first decisive frost. The
'iuos aro dragged off with nn ordinary
turning plow, barely letting it iuto tho
E ri >und botwcon tho rows. After this tho
tulx rs ere lifted with a potato digger. In
1 1,1 absence of thoso useful implements tho
"ork can he done fairly well with a turning
plow, though greater care must be used in
leaking up the potatoes, ns the turning plow
"ill cover up a good many.
f usual mode of putting up sweet po
tatoes i n tho South is in banka or conical
K 'up, containing from thirty to a hundred
,!n 'l drvy bushels each; tho smaller ones nro
I I'd out olid put In a separate lawk for

k,ulks or other litter, and then with earth,
." i h nc-,1 not be more than un inch and a
“df thick at hurveat time, but which should
be gradually increased to four or six inches
as winter advances.
Potato houses are used by some growers
i'- preference to banking the tubers. When
made witli double walls, with sawdust well
packed between the walls, the cold Is effect
ally excluded. Such a potato house may
be partitioned off into bins holding from
twenty to fifty bushels each, in w hich the
tubers can be stored away in dry sand.
When hanking sweet potatoes, either in a
potato house or under an open shed, it is
very important to leave an opening of six
or eight inches at the top of the bank for
ventilation. Soon after being dug potatoes
seem to undergo a sweating process, which
will cause rot if the air is excluded. In cold
weather this aperture has to be closed with
an armful of straw or hay'.
The King Orange.
Mr. Lynmn Phelps, of Sanford, Fla., in
tho Florida Dispatch , says that he lately
received from C. E. Cutler, of Riverside,
Cal., a very handsome orange, “The King.”
Size, seventy-six, color that of the Manda
rin, skin a trifle thicker than the Mandarin,
orange more heavier and more solid or com
pact, shape very like the Satsuma. The
orange pleased him very much. If it can
be kept ripening as late as its period of ma
turity in California (June), it will be very
much to be desired.
He preyoses to take care of the buds he
has growing to see what Florida’s favorable
will do for it. He confidently ex
ists to show the fruit two years from the
coming winter, possibly a year from next
This is Mr. Cutler’s description: “Tho
King is sui generis the strongest acid and
in its best ripened specimens the finest orange
I have ever tasted. It reproduces itself from
seed. Is very thorny and rigid and upright
in growth. Very late (now June Ist), is
about ripe, rough and free rind, ovals, blos
soms very small and with little perfume.
Altogether the tree is the least beautiful of
orange trees. It was imported from Saigon,
Cochin China, under government seal, by
Dr. S. R. Magee, of Riverside. I have been
the first to fruit it. Had two specimens
last year and had two to three boxes this
The firm of Twogood & Cutler are well
known and any statement,, they' may make
will be trustworthy.
Mr. Phelps will plant the seeds of this
orange and test the reproduction. Its strong
character would naturally lead one to the
belief that it would reproduce itself, and in
our favoring climatic conditions possibly
Curing Tobacco On and Off the Stalk.
Recent experiments niq*te by a North
Carolina gentleman in curing tobacco both
on and off the stalk seem to prove that tho
latter is tho proper method. It is held that
the great hulk of nicotine in a tobacco plant
lies in the stalk that in the old process of
curing; this nicotine is driven to tho loaf
and hence becomes an injury to it. Tho
gentleman referred to above states that
stripping the leaves as they ripen and cur
ing them off the stalk almost entirely re
lieves the tobacco of all nicotine, and, as a
consequence, improves its quality to a con
siderable degree. If this con be substan
tiated as a fact it will greatly revolutionize
the tobacco business with reference to cur
ing. A great many planters hold that a
leaf of tobacco broken from the stock be
fore it is cured becomes lifeless and almost
worthless. This ground is demonstrated to
bo false by examining a lot of tobacco
cured after being stripped. We have in our
office a small sample of smoking tobacco
manufactured from leaf stripped in the
field and afterward cured. It has the
pleasant aroma of fine smoking tobacco,
does not affect the nerves, and does not
leave a biting, unpleasant taste after smok
ing as is often the case with most smoking
tobacco. Whether these qualities ariso
from being cured after being broken from
the stalk we don’t know, but it seems most
likely that this is the reason. Thorough
experiments will be made this summer to
test this matter, and if there is anything in
the claim of non-nicotine tobacco it will
soon got its quota of credit.
New Use for Cotton Stalks.
Mr. Daniel Dennett writes as follows in
the New Orleans Picayune: We learn that
some of the farmers around Summit, Miss.,
jjje getting more profits from their standing
eetton stalks than from their baled lint.
After the cotton is harvested they clip the
tops and branches of the stalks, clear off and
plow thoroughly and fertilize, and at the
proper season plant peas for market, a row
on each side, both rows supported by the
cotton stalks. Thoy say that early pens al
ways bring a good price in all of the mar
kets, the only drawback having been the
trouble and expense of sticking them.
Grown on old cotton stalks the sticking costs
almost nothing. If this is as great a success
as they claim for it, early- peas can be raised
for Western and Eastern cities, all the way
from the Gulf shore to the Ohio river. In
Southern Louisiana the gardeners often
plant pens in the latter part of December.
Southern Louisiana and Mississippi and
Florida can send peas to market late in
February- and early in March in large quan
tities. The climate will to the end of time
give tho Southern States the monopoly of
the early jtea industry.

A thin, watery, tasteless apple-sauce is a
libel on the apples and a disgrace to the
c s'k. After washing the pieces of apples
it a colander let them stp W with only w ater
enough to cover them. Continue stewing
until they can lie easily mashed through.
Sweeten the sauce while the apples are
warm; season with rose-water, lemon juice
and nutmeg. Some very thin slices of fresh
lemon peel, stewed with the apples, add
greatly to the delicate savor. Too sweet
apples do not cook well.

to making hog-keeping profitable than any
any other plan. It is the method by- which
nine-tenths of the pork crop is now made,

No hog is quite so ravenous as a sow that
is suckling a lot of young pigs. The inces
sant drain on her sharpens her appetite
amazingly, and yet she will grow thin while
eating perhaps twice what she could fatten
on without the pigs. But no food ever
given to a hog is so well invested as what is
toil to a sow sucking her young. At first
the sow’s fix si should bo milk and wheat
bran, but after the pigs are a week old some
corn meal may- be added with no fear that
she will grow too fat. The pigs will get all
the fat and growth it contains.
