Peach Output In Georgia.
Question —Is peach culture in Geor
gia likely to be overdone?
Answer —I think not. It is true that
the acreage of peaches will be greatly
increased by this season’s planting, aud
that the demand for peach stock can
with difficulty be tilled by the nursery
men. There will not, however, be a
greatly increased acreage of bearing
trees, and the corresponding increase in
additional markets, and in the popular
ity of the Georgia peach, will more
than offset the increase. There moat
be a large planting annually to keep up
the present acreage, as peaoh trees are
short lived and many die each year from
various causes. It is probable that fully
one-third of the trees planted this sea
son will never oome into bearing. To
grow peaches profitably requires the
greatest attention. Proper cultivation
and fertilization, careful pi nning and
treatment for inseot pests and diseases,
are necessary to success, and at least
one-third of the orchards of the state do
not receive snch attention, and they go
down. The Ban Jose scale has caused
the destruction of over 100,000 trees dar
ing the past season, and probably as
many more will be destroyed before the
winter is over. If the borers are neg
lected for two or three years, and dar
ing that time the trees produce a heavy
crop, the drain made upon their vitality
by the borers and the productien of the
crop, will cause a large proportion of
them to die.
Intending planters should not be dis
oouraged by these statements, for they
are encouraging to those who intend to
give their orchards the proper oare.
Money can be made in Georgia by the
intelligent fruit grower. It is estimated
that the peach growers alone have net
ted over 11,000,000 during the post sea
sou. One party sold four cars of peaches
for 96.468, and his entire shipments
■mounted to 90 cars. Some growers re
ceived poor returns on account of bad
handling, poor packing aud rascally
commission merchants, but good fruit,
well handled and properly shipped,
gave very satisfactory rstnms. I be
lieve there will never be an over pro
duction of choice peaches.—State Agri

been able to cure in all its stages, and
that isCatarrh. Hall’s Catarrh Cure is
the only positive cure known to the
medical fraternity. Being a con

is taken internally, acting directly up
on the blood and mucous surfaces of

foundation of the disease, and giving
the patient strength by building up
the constitution and assisting nature

Mule* With the Stagger*.
Question. —Two of niy mule* hav*
died with staggers. Is there any rem
edy for it. aud what causes it?
Answer.— There are two varieties at
this disease, knowu generally as blind,
aud sleepy staggero, according to th*
symptoms displayed by the sick animal
In blind staggers the animal rushes
around recklessly, running against or
falling over any obstruction in his veay.
In sleepy staggers the affected horse or
mule appears dull and stupid, standing
quietly with lowered head, or perhaps
with its head pressing against a fence
The disease, however, is the satn* in
both cases, and being a brain disease, is
very hard to relieve or central. Some
of the horse books assert that it is caused
by over gorging, but from ray own ex
perience lam sure it is brought oa by
eating damaged or rotten corn. It is
the general sentiment among farmers
that there is more damaged corn this
year than they ever knew before, at
tributable no doubt to the continuous
rains of last summer. Numerous com
plaints of this disease are coming to this
department, and I fear that the loss on
this score will be heavy throughout tile
state. In feeding horses and mules be
very careful to see that they get no
damaged corn, or you are likely to meet
with losses from this very fatal disease.
Wheu the disease is fully developed lit
tle or nothihg can be done to save the
animal, but if upou its first appearance
proper treatment is resorted to many
cases can be cured. The treatment con
sists in promptly bleeding the animal
freely, aud giving a good dose of salts
or oil. If the medicine (lees not act to
two and a half or three hours the dose
should be repeated. Prevention, how
ever, is better than cure, therefore you
should use every care to keep damaged
com out of the horse stable.—State Ag

Wheat Sowing so Georgia.
Question —Is it now too late to sow
Answer —Good crops of wheat hare
been raised in the middle and northern
sei ms of the state sowed as late as
the middle of January. You should
have sowed about tl., middle of Novem
her, provided the cold weather had by
that time destroyed the Hessian fly,
which is very apt to ruin a wheat crop
sowed before frost.
To hope for a fair crop, planted at
this late date, your ground must be
rich, either naturally or by the liberal
use of fertilizers. Prepare the land
with extra care for the reception of the
seed, and do not fail to broadcast frets
60 to 100 pounds of nitrate of soda to
the acre when the spring growth com.
mences. Then with a favorable season
you may make a fair crop of wheat. Be
sure to follow your wheat crop with
peas sown broadcast; they will not only
give yon a splendid crop of hay, Bhl
will also enrich yonr soil with nitrogen,
the most costly of plant foods.

When ,t puar orchard is badly blight
ed, the owner writes to everybody who
claims to know anything on the subject,
hi. I every one will write him to prune,
prone, prune, when really the truth'll
that the more he prunes the worse will
be the blight. When an orchard is badly
blighted, the thing to do is to let it alone
as completely as possible. Don’t prune a
limb, doD’t plow it or do anything else
to it that will stimulate the trees. The
trees are certainly in bad shape for two
Let them aloue till the trees make
but a small growth. Don't oultivate the
land. Then fertilize with phosphorio
acid and potash (no nitrogen). Kaiait
and acid are good forms. Apply broad
#g"t 600 pounds of each to the aare.
Less will do good; more will do more
good. Plow it in lightly, say three or
four inches. This shonld be done in the
winter between Deo. 1 and Jan. 16. If
done earlier, vegetation is too mnefa in
the way. If done later, there will be
danger of causing the trees to bloom too
In May give the orchard another
cultivation, most advantageonely done
with a ontaway harrew, plowing about
the same depth as before. The season
following give tbs same fertilizers and
the same plowings. If the trees are
rather vigorous, leave off the May plow
When you have atarredoutthe blight
and have got the trees to where they
make but a small growth annually,
whloh will be just before you oommenoe
the fertilizing and plowing described
above, then is the time to prune, prune,
prune. Don’t prune with a knife or
shears, bat with a saw. Saw off the
worst blighted limbs, the straggling
limbs, the chafing limbs and the very
tall limbs. Ont them half in two, re
ducing the tree nearly one-half.
Apply kainlt and acid annually; give
the orohard two plowings; never plant
peas, beggar weeds or turn under a
heavy erop of any vegetable growth.

“Head not to Contradict andßefute,

But to Weigh and Consider.”
He who offers Two dollars for One comes properly under the category
of being either a rogue or a dolt, for he offers the impossible. It is manifestly
impossible to give more than is received, else one finds he has broken all laws
of common sense; yet this is often made the new catch-penny inducement to
intending piano purchasers. We often read in the daily papers statements of
offers made on pianos of high class, “containing every known inducement,” for
an exceedingly small sum of money and on ridiculously low monthly or quar
terly payments. The impossible is proffered, and he who does it knowingly
falsifies himself and assumes that the purchaser is incompetent or foolish, else
he could not be caught in such a net of fraud and deception. There is no oc
casion for deceit, yet the history of the piano trade shows it to be crowded
with miss-statements regarding the grades and prices. We have found it nec
essary in the management of our wholesale trade to withdraw the sale of our
pianos from some of our country dealers. In order to close the accounts -with
these particular dealers we have found it necessary to take from them a num
ber of pianos of various makes and place them on our floors for sale, applying I
the proceeds of such sales to their accounts in order to settle the account with
them. We do not expect to give Two dollars for One. but we have in these I
instruments pianos of Standard makes, many of which could not be detected
from new instruments directly from the Factory w hen placed side by side with '
new pianos in our store, and which these dealers have been asking a reasonable
profit for, that will be offered during the next few days at very much lower I
prices than these goods have ever been sold. We shall make an extraordinary \
effort to close out every instrument on our floors of this class between now and !
January first. In order to do this w’e find it necessary to ofler these instru
ments at wholesale prices to dealers, or even less. We would advise any' one ?
who expects to purchase an instrument during the next few years to consult us
in regard to prices on these pianos at once. In addition to a large stock of the
above described instruments, w r e have probably’ the most complete stock in the j
South of Everett and Harvard pianos which are perfectly new and direct ;
f rom our two Factories. These instruments are made in all of the fancy w’oods
and are unequaled in tone, quality and durability. Remember that the Everett 5
piano is the only piano guaranteed for the entire lifetime of the instrument.
This guarantee is not by’ a salesman or a local dealer, but is a signed guarantee \
furnished by the Everett Piano Company themselves. . Would you like to see |
