Yellow and.white iniilo maize grow

Large African millet is very much

The Kaffir corn is low growing, but
produces manv heads of white grain,

more forcibly illu-trated the impor
tance of fill: plowing tnau is just now
being brought no ue to our understand
ing. The almost unprecedented cold,
the iong continued rain-, 'he iate sea
son, all combine to crowd into one
month the work of two or more, and
on the fall plowed lands, particularly
if snbsoiied, even wnere it has been
packed by the winter rains, the work
is found lighter, more rapid and more
satis actory than in tae fields, which
have remained unplowed -nice tne
crops were gathered, and which have
been in many cases beaten hard by tne
tramping of cattle.
This question of proper end well di

few farmers study it beyond tee mere
breaking and bedding, absolutely nec

we see any variation in the depth of

DANIELSVILLE, MADISON COUNTY, GA.. THURSDAY, April 4th. 1894.
ah ice, An ignorant or id n.n-eut plow

his work. Crooked or uneven furrows,

ten eutaiis much unnecessary work,
with painfully inadequate returns,
brood plowing not only requires prac
tice but observation a; wail, the close
scrutiny, which will enable tha farmer
to profit by orror as well a< by success.
In their eagerness to push on tho
work, farmers often niter pmseun ur
gmt conditions, are tempted to plow
tho land when too wet. No greater
mistake was evor main, for While some
thing may ba .gama t in present speed,
the end is no amount of bother aud
worry. Laud once plowed too wet

work when vine is pressed for time, but
thorough wont in preparation pays tiie
biggest returns. It has b seu repeated
ly ii mionstrated that half the area,
with prop *r and careful attention to de

less !i ird work, than twice the number

Southern railroads have stood
the strain of the stringent times
better than the other railroads of
the country. Their returns show
that Ihy have not only held their
own, but have ‘done something
better. The financial situation
compelled the roads to use econo
my, and while their gross earnings
are not so large, yet their net
earnings are Ja little on the in
crease. Home of the Western
roads have lost heavily. The single
gold standard Ims forced every
thing down, so Jthat there is no
telling where it will stop or what
the consequences will be. And
then if the farmers reduce the
acreage, so as to put a small crop
on the market, this will take a
great deal from them and dimin*
