Sow Cow Peas. Would Ihftt Southern farmers could be im pressed with the importance of restoring and increasing the fertility of their soils, the im {H'actfe&'bililv of accomplishing it by the aid sf commercial fertilizers alone, and the cer dainty with which it can be done b}- means of what are called renovating crops, such as peas and clover ami Bermuda grass. Even when simply allowed to rest—all stock being •kept off—the soil will improve by the restoring eflcct of the weeds which naturally spring up ; o that by resting every fourth year, and planting the intervening years in cotton, corn, ■nmall grain, manuring the first two. any farm, In the course of two or three rotations, may be brought to exceed its original productive ness. But the comparative slowness of the process will defer most farmers from adopting and adhering to such a 93’steru. A crop of peas may be grown the same year the oats or wheat are taken off, and will improve the soil greatly more rapidly than the spontaneous growth. We notice in Northern papers that quite an interest is springing up in the mat ter of the ‘’Southern Cowpea” a* a substitute for clover in such soils as will not grow the latter freel}’, and the editors are besieged for information about them, which the}' give— not always very correctly. It would not surprise us at all if the inde fatigable Yankee should get ahead of us in the proper appreciation and extensive use of the pea as a renovator. The Northern far mer is more apt in seiiflng upon an} 7 advan tage he sees within his reach than the South ern is. We have long boasted of the value of the cow peas, the sweet potato, and of our advantages of climate in the growth of these two crops, as well as sugar cane and cotton, but we have never properly or fully availed -ourselves of these advantages, excepting as to the one crop— cotton. We do not raise 'one fourth as many potatoes and peas as we ought, and sugarcane—even in favored South Georgia—is a mere side crop. If we do not bestir ourselves, give less at tention to cotton and more to other crops, we may as well cease our vaunted claims. The North is now selling us a great part of the syrup we use, and will soon supply us with sugar, and perhaps after awhile we will buy our seed peas and sweet potatoes in Cincin nati !— Dixie Farmer. An Agricultural Creed. 1. Do not cultivate poor land. It is a feeble mother who can give no sustenance. 2. If your land is poor, you must limit the area of cultivation to your ability to manure —let it be ever so little—and you will be the gainer by it. 3. Exert yourself to produce manure on the farm. Such manure i9 the flour that makes ithe loaf, and a commercial fertilizer is only it leaven to it. Home made manures cost -some labor but little money, while commer cial fertilizers will bring you in debt, and are a kind of food which mother earth cannot entirely rely and fatten upon. We are not their enemy but active friend, when judici ously used, and can be had without too great strain on the farmer’s credit. 4. Bring to the aid of your manure pile green fallow crops, and try to clothe the bo som of mother earth with the green verdue of grass, from which live stock can be fed. 5. Keep as much stock as can he fed well, for this adds to the manure pile, and their increase and a few fat carcasses afford a big iutcrest on the investment. 6. Diversify crops as much as possible, and do not rel} r on one staple. This will make your manure and labor pay a profit in some places when they fail in others. 7. Manure! manure! manure! and, as be fore suggested, rely on the farm principally to produce it. It will “put money in your pocket.” 8. No grass, no stock ; no stock, no ma nure ; no manure, no improvement of the Jand.— Richmond Planter and Farmer. Soil Exhaustion. 'The soil is said to be exhausted when it "fails to give paying crops under the most fa vorable circumstances of tillage, weather, etc. This exhaustion is brought about by the re moval of the constituents needed by the plants, through the growth and removal of plants, without any corresponding addition to these food elements. Thus a soil may con tain enough phosphoric acid in an available form for ten full crops, but after that, if none of this substance is added to the soil, the crop cannot make a full return for the labor expended upon it. A soil may thus be ex hausted or deficient in only one of the several food elements, and yet it is not much better, as far as plant growth is concerned, than if all the elements were equally lacking. All crops do not exhaust soils equally—some re move more potash than others, and one re quires a greater amount of nitrogen than another. This is very clearly shown in the Jong extended experiments of Lawes and Gilbert at Rothamsted, England. It is found by them that the plots upon which continu ous crops of clover, beans and roots have been grown without any manure, have declined more rapidly than the land devoted to cereal grain crops. This is surprising; in so far as clover, etc., are generally considered as resto rative rather than exhaustive crops. A ju dicious rotation of crops is as much needed to preserve the even fertility of the soil as to keep it mellow and free from weeds. Cornstalks.— Mr. George Conner, of Bur lington, lowa, considers a ton of cornstalks worth more than a ton of hay for cows, lie feeds to each miloh cow one bushel of finely cut stalks, two quarts of bran and two quarts of cob-meal mixed and wet with water, both jporning and evening. /Twabner t s J ISAFCi r BitterSj WroTiamsm <■ Mothers, Wives, Daughters, Sons, Fa thers, Ministers, Teachers, XEnsiness Men, Farmers, Mechanics, AIJ, should be warned against using and introducing into their HOMES Nostrums and Alcoholic Remedies.
