We had something to say last year
about the cultivation of the ramie
plant, under the auspices ot a stock
company, who’ wete experimenting
here. Mr. Gibson, who was then in
charge, planted out about an acre of
the plants, about like cotton, and we
have been very much interested in the
progress of the enlargement of the
experiment. Unfortunately the stock
company went to pieces, and Mr. Gib
son abandoned the ramie (arm. The
plants were out, however, and have
proven themselves very hardy and
able to take care of themselves, as will
be seen by the sequel.
Mr. J. ]. Biggs rented the place this
year and has not interfered with the
ramie plants, and on yesterday he
brought us in a sample of them, about
8 teet long and i i inch in circumfer
ence, which is the full growth of the
plant. It grows in clusters, and has.in
the past twelve months so spread
from the roots that the rows are now
one solid mass of shoots, These
shoots, in utilizing the fibre, are cut
off when about 3 or four feet long.and
others grow up, making about three
gyops in a season. The fibre is taken
from the shoots and manufactured into
a textile fabric somewhat similar to
silk in appearance. It is remarkably
strong and is very valuable, Mr.
Riggs brings us also some of the fibre,
which was taken from a young shoot,
and it is as strong as flax. It is to be
hope:! that some one will get hold of
the farm who will pursue the cultiva
tion and preparation of the ramie
with a view ol enlarging the industry.
This section seems, fiom experiments
made so far, to be especially adapted
to the growth of the ramie plant, and,
if properly worked up, it might be
made one of our most important in,
dustries. Mr. Gibson left several
.wagon loads of the fibre and shoots,
which had been cut, on the place.
It might be of interest to our people
to Irak*more into the matter, and hence
we TOve given this notice. The prop
erty, we understand, belongs to Mr.
Fearn. Ramie is certainly a success
in Thomas county.

The LeCente Pear.
In au interview with Sir. Ynrnudoc,
the introducer of the LeG'onte pear in
this section, yesterday, wc took occa
sion to ask him about the pear crop.
He said he never had a better crop
than he has this season, and that tliev
were doing fine. I11 regard to the
reports of damage by blight, which
have bqen circulated, he said that he
was not alarmed at all about it; that
ho had a little, but it did no matt rial
damage. It was like things hu
man, the LeCoutc was subject to dis
ease the same as any other tree, or
other thing of life, but in reality it
was less subject tliau any pear trees
known, and he had no apprehension
about the disease called by some
blight. He said, that the disease did
not attack any tree not in bloom. He
had not seen a siugle young tree with
a dead leaf on it. His belief was that
the dead limbs were caused by an in
sect which preyed upon the bloom
and burrowed in the limb, and was
only found in fruiting treesj.but what
ever it was, it was not a thing to alarm
pear growers, as the trees and fruit
were both doing as well as possible.
Mr. Varnadoe’s experience coin
cides materially with that of other
largo growers in this countv, and w®
are glad to be able to say that the
bug-a-boo, made by alarmists,
amounts to nothing. Thoinas county
does not stand in need of the sympa
thy expressed abroad for the great
loss in damage to our favorite crop—
Mr. Yaruadoe says furthermore
that there would be no complaint
about pears if people would pack and
ship their fruit properly. He always
ships in barrels, no wrapping or other
thing to exclude air, puts his fruit nn
in good shape, sends no culls, and
fillips only to New York. He says
the custom of shipping to different
points is an error. New York is in a
position to distribute the crop to every
point more expeditiously and to bet
ter advantage ns to rates, etc., than
any other point. He says lie ships to
New York for 60 cents, to Philadel
phia for 85, nnd that the fruit can he
shipped from New York to Philadel
phia for 8 cents; not only a saving in
freight, but if all flip fruit is sent to
New York it is possible there to dis
tribute it to such points as it can bs
sold without a possibility of finding a
glutted market from home shipments.
Mr. Yaruadoe has had years experi
ence in the business, and is (i safe
counsellor in all matters of this kind.
Our growers would do well to heed
his advice. He Bays, furthermore,
that he and his ueighbors together,
will send a car-load every other day
through the season to New York.
This does not look much like a lailure
of the pear crop in Thomas.
