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 Agriculture: 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 Atlanta. In reply to an iuqulry of ours Mr. Baxter wrote us as follows: Suwanee, Ga. 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 sale. Five Hundred Dollars worth Christmas goods just received included in this sale. February. 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 ticre. 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 ment. - 4 City Taxes. ) 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.
