ABOUT RESCUE GRASS
A CORRESPONDENT GIVES HIS
EXPERIENCE WITH THIS
PROPER SEASON TO PLANT
If Properly Carod For It Can Bo
Brought Up to a High State of
Production In Georgia.
Colonel O. B. Stevens, Commissioner of
Question. —I have read with much in
terest your article on Rescue Grass pub
lished in one of your monthly talks
some time since. I have determined to
try this grass this fall, and should like
for you to give me, if possible, the expe
rience of some who have tried it in
Middle and Northern Georgia. Hoping
to hear from you by Nov. 15.
Answer. — In reply to your inquiry
we ore satisfied that we cannot better
answer your letter than by giving the
experience of Mr. J. P. Baxter of Su
wanee, Ga., and Mark W. Johnson of
In reply to an iuqulry of ours Mr.
Baxter wrote us as follows:
Hon. R. F. Wright, Assistant Commis
sioner of Agriculture, Atlauta, Ga.:
Deak Sir— ln reply to your request
about my experience with Rescue Grass
I answer that I think it to be the finest
grass for winter grazing and the most
prolific grass of southern latitudes. Re
quiring a rich, loamy soil, coming up in
Soptembor, growing rapidly even, dur
ing the coldest winter days, affording
rich pasturage of the most succulent
stems and leaves from Dec. 1 to May 1,
or it may be mowed for hay two to three
times during April and May, and then
allow'4u to mature a crop of seed, which,
in gathering, will shatter or leave
enough seed on the ground to reseed the
land, so that one sowing, if properly
treated, will suffice.
I have been growing it for five years
and have, after mowing two or three
times, made at the rate of 100 to 150
bushels of seed per acre. Got off of 1
rod, measured, garnered and threshed
by others, \\i pecks, equal to 200 bush
els per acre.
The seed may be sown from Jui^to
Extra help employed to wait on thejtrade during this
Five Hundred Dollars worth Christmas goods just
received included in this sale.
There are some peculiarities about the
grass seed. They will not germinate in
summer, the colder the weather in win
ter the faster it grows, unlsss the stems
have commenced jointing, whenafreozo
will kill it down, only to come out
again in increased numbers. It makes
a gradual growth when not grazed or
mown. Mowing it down only hastens
its growth. I have had the same' plat,
part mown onoe and part twice, all ma
ture at the same time.
I have three plats which mature about
May 1 to 10. Owing to seed of heads
not all ripening at same time enough
seed will be left on the ground to ro
seed the land.
Two of these plats I break up about
June 1 to 15, fertilize and sow in peas,
the other I plant in corn and field beaus.
I think the grass by this process im
proved the last three years, and made
splendid erftps of pea vine bay and corn
and beans, the seed left on the ground
in May lying dormant until the cool
nights in September.
The seed are quoted by seedmen at 25
cents per pound, but about 100 pounds
may be had of Dr. A M. Winn <te Son
of Lawrenceviile, Ga., at 15 cents per
pound, or 10 pounds at 12 cents, or of
undersigned u small amount, say 150
pounds, ut same price.
Note —Thirty pounds will sow one
WHAT MR. JOHNSON BAYS.
Mr. Mark W, Johnson, in an article
which appeared in the Southern Culti
vator of Got. 1, said:
“This grass is comparatively a stran
gor to the cotton states, yet in some lo
calities it is well known and has been
cultivated for many years. It has sev
eral local names, erroneously given to
it, such as "Arctic grass/’ “Winter
grass, ’ ’ Danish Rescue, ’ ’ etc. Its proper
name, however, is Rescue grass and its
botanical name is Bromus Schraderi. It
belongs to the Bromus family, of which
there are several varieties, viz: Bromus
inermis, Bromus Mollis, Bromufc Pra
tensis—all of them being more or less
valuable for hay and winter pasturage.
More especially for pasturage. Some of
the group are annual and some peren
nial. They will grow on dry, arid soils,
where most other grasses would fail.
“Among the pernnials the Bromus
inermis is probably the best, as it grows
freely ou sandy, dry and arid soils,
where the better grasses wonld fall.
The Rescue is an annual, growing from
1 to 2 feet high, and is a remarkable,
luxuriant plant, with blades as large
as barley, affording excellent winter
pasture until the latter cart of May or
June (according to locality)', when it
goes to seed and dies down, shedding it?
seed upon the ground, which will oomo
up again as soon as fall rains set in.
After it sheds its seed the ground may
be; planted in some other cultivated
crop, such as will bo laid by not later
than July, and after cultivation ceases
the Rescue will come y,gain. In order
that it may reseed the ground the pas
turing should cease about May 1. A por
tion of the crop may be reserved for
seed, in which case the grazing could he
continued much lon per.
“Dike nl! the Bromu family, the Res
cue should be planted only during the
fall. As the so and are large, it requires
from 20 to 3d pounds per acre. Sow on
any soil that will make com, oats or
cotton; break soil fine, broadcast and
cover with harrow or a treetop drag.
Rescue gras ; will grow well ou the gray
and sandy soils of the cotton belt, where
orchard, blue, Timothy and clover will .
not succeed, and the coldest winter does *
not injure it ut all. Its chief value is ,
for winter grazing, or cutting oud feed- *
iug green, in such sections where the cli
mate and soil are not suited to the finer ,
grasses. When winter’s chilly frosts
bite all other vegetation off the field
this grass remains green and succulent
rescuing the cattle from hunger, hence
the name. ’’—State Agricultural Depart

The present admistration has done
one good thing for Winder. Although
it hr° made many improvements it hr*
reduced taxes way below what they
were last year.
This is one item that every man is
interested in. This administration can
also feel proud of the fact that the city
has made more rapid growth this year
than over before ,- n its history. We say
the above simply in justice to the men
