dATTER AN IMPORTANT ONE
A Young Farmer Discouraged With
Farming amt the Low l*rlce« of
Cotton Is Given Advice.
To the State Chemist, Atlanta, Ga,:
Dkar Sir—lama young farmer al
most discouraged with farming and the
low prices of cotton. I had thought of
devoting more attention to my stock,
ami write to ask if chemistry can
throw any light on that subject, as all
farmers admit (hat it does ou the sub- i
ject of fertilizers. Can you give some 1
good formulas for feeding? I have a
good common school education, but
want you to be plain so I can under
stand what you suy. A. B. 0.
To A. B. C.:
Dear Sik—Your letter received, and
the questions you ask open up a wide
field for discussion, and are of the great
est practical importance, not .only to the
farmer, but ta the general prosperity of
the whole country.
Yes, chemistry can throw a great
flood of light ou the subject of stock
feeding, which is a part of the general
subject of animal nutrition. The sub
ject is usually treated last in nearly
all works ou agriculture, but I am
now going to write to you about it
first, because you seem specially inter
ested in it, and also because I believe
that if a general and intelligent inter
est in the subject of stock raising could
be awakened in the country it would do
more for our agricultural regeneration
than any one thing that I can think of.
I could answer the main question of
your letter at ouce by giving you some
formulas for feeding, but I am not
going to do that because you would not
see any sense in it. or any good reason
for it; and I desire that you should un
derstand the principles of feeding hast,
then you will take an intelligent inter
est in it, and be more successful in it
than if you went at it blindly by mere
“rule of thumb.” I am goiDg to as
sume that there are numbers of farmers
like yourself in Georgia with limited
but fair education, who are disgusted
with the all cotton policy, and that this
letter addressed to you personally is also
of interest to them, and so I shall print
it in : the “Monthly Talks” of the com
missioner of agriculture, that*> it may
have a wide circulation among the
farmers, and perhaps lie of interest and
benefit to them as well as yourself to
whom it is addressed. 1 expect to write
one of these letters for each of the
“Monthly T&lks.” according as I may
find opportunity and time to spare from
my other duties, and to continue them
as long as 1 think I have anything of
practical value to sav to the farmers. As
I am not writing these letters for those
well versed in scientific agriculture,
but for beginners, I shall commence
with elementary principles.
f will discuss in a brief manner some
of the principles of animal nutrition or
The auimal body is composed of water,
that constituting from 40 to 60 peroent
of it, and also of protein, fat and ash, of
which bast bones are the chief part. The
protein of the body includes all of the
matter in the body containing nitrogen.
The lean meat, the casein of milk or the
curd, the w A 0 of eggs, or albumen are
all forms of protein The term albu
minoids, derived from albumen, is often
used to mean the same as protein, al
though that use is not strictly correct.
The albuminoids are a class of bodies in
cludd under the general name of pro
tein. The flesh, the skm, the hair, the
muscles, the heart, the liver, the brain,
the blood, the nerves, aHI the internal or
gans, the nails, the horns, the hoofs and
in fact a large part of the bonegall consist
largely of protein. So we see this sub
stance, protein, is indeed a most im
portant one; life cannot exist without
it, and when we go into the market to
buy it in its most concentrated forms,
as in beef, mutton, pork and millk, we
find we have to go down into our pock
ets just a little deeper than for the other
necessaries of life. The carbohydrates
and fat are also necessary to animal lite.
The word carbohydrate is derived from
carbon (of which charcoal is a good ex
ample) and the word hydrate is from
the Greek for water. An example of a
pure carbohydrate is starch, we eat it
usually in the form of meal, flour, rice
and potatoes, of which it forms the
greater part. Sugar is the first cousin
of starch (indeed it can be made from
it) and is also included undier the term
carbohydrates. These carbohydrates
are the principal source of the fat of
our bodies, and are the chief source of
animal heat and the energy odf the body,
in fact they are a sort of fuel, and are so
to speak burned in the body, heat and
work being a result of their oxidation
or burning, just as heat and work or
motion are a result of the burning or
oxidatiou of coal in an enghie. So we
see these carbohydrates are important,
but we also And they are cheap as com
pared with protein; why are they cheap? v

Abuut Rescue Grass.
Question. —Please give me all the in
formatiou you cau lu regard to rescue
Answer. —Rescue grass is probably
the finest grass for winter grazing, and
the most prolific grass of southern lati
tudes. The grass requires a rich loamy
soil, and comes up iu September, grow
ing rapidly during even the the coldest
winker. It affords a rich pasturage of
the most succulent stems and leaves
from Deo. 1, to May 1, or it may bo
mowed for hay two or three times dur
ing April and May, and then allowed to
mature a crop of seed, which in gather
ing wliift-h.ittor, or leave enough seed
on the groudd to reseed the laud, so
that one sowing, if properly treated,
will suffice. After mowing two or three
times, from 100 to 150 bushels of seed
may be made on an acre. The seed may
be sown from June to February.
There are some peculiarities about
this grass seed. They will not germi
nate in summer. The colder the weather
in winter, the faster it grows, unless
the stems have commenced jointing,
when a freeze will kill it down, only to
come out agaia, however, greatly in
creased in thickness. When not mowed,
the gvass grows slowly, but when it is
mowed or grazed upon, the growth is
hastened. The plats upon which the
grass has been sown can be broken up
from June 1 to 15, fertilized and sown
in peas, er planted in corn and field
beans. By i his method the grass will
not only be improved, but splendid crops
of peaviue hay, or of corn and beans can
be made. The seed that are left on the
ground in May will lie dormant until
the cool nights in September.
The seed are quoted by seed men at
25 cents per pouud, but about 100
pounds may be obtained from Dr. A.
M. Winn & Son of Bawrenceville, Ga.,
at 15 cents per pouud, er 12 cents per
pound if as much as 10 pounds are
bought; also 150 pounds cau be obtained
from Mr. J. T. Barter of Suwauee, Ga.,
at the same price. The foregoing in

Culture of Upland Rice.
Question. —Please give me some gen
eral information in regard to the culture
of upland rice.
Axsweb.— The following plan is prac
tically that of W. H. Dickey of Abbe
ville, a successful grower of upland rice:
Low or hammock land is preferable for
the planting of upland rice; in order to
guard against drouth, however, the soil
should not be wet. Break the laud deep
aud close, and use the harrow if there
are nay clods, then use the small plow,
and trench your rows about 24 to 80
inches apart. Put in the drills 200 to
300 pounds of good commercial fertil
izer, or barnyard mauure can be used
with good results if well pulverized.
Drop the rice 12 to 14 inches apart, put
ting 12 to 20 grains in 4 hill, and cover
die same with a fork plow.
After this is done, the rice can be cul
tivated with very little trouble. Plow
shallow, using the scooter and scrape,
and about two workings will be all that
is necessary. One bushel of rice will
plant from two and one-half to three
acres, which on good land and proper
seasons will yield from 25 to 80 bushels
of rough rice pesr acre. One bushel of
the rough rice, when husked, will yield
about 25 pounds of beautiful white rice,
which has an excellent flavor, and is
considered by many to be far superior
to any other r*-e that can be found on
If planted in April the rioe will be
ready for harvesting about. Sept 1, and
as the head ripens before the straw,
you get from one to three tons of excel
lent hav per acre.
Mr. W. H. Dickey of Abbeville, Ga.,
has about 20 bushels of this upland rice
that he will aell for $1.60 per bushel,
sacked and delivered to freight or ex
press office on receipt of said amount. —

Seme Good Advice to Farmers,
To my brother farmers ; Noth
ing ou earth I enjoy more than a
country life. But it seems
. that a dark cloud overshadows us
now. Our farm produce has been
sold for such a low price that it
has been out of the power of a
number of our farmers to pay
their debts. What is the cause of
it ? Is it over-production '! The
cotton-buyers say so; but, my
friends, I do not believe any such
thing. I believe it is speculation.
How can it be over-production
and the country in rags ? It is a
very strange thing to me that the
farmers have to raise cotton to
clothe the world and go iu a man
ner nuked themselves. Now, Mr
Monopolist, you can’t sack my
head iu that wav. I know of fam
ilies right now that haven’t cloth
ing suitable to wear out on the
Sabbath day to hear the Word of
Hod. Someone will ask : “Who
is this ?” Perhaps I had better an-
6wer that question now: It is the
man that put the most of his land
in cotton. I have Examined all
the histories of all ages, and never
have I found a more energetic and
economizing generation than the
present. The city and town men
can suggest plans and almost dic
tate to the farmers. 1 would like
for them to explain to my satis
faction why they don’t get out of
the town and go to farming.
Farmers, read these statistics:
There was within 80days import
ed into this state 4,042 car-loads
of food stuffs; in one mouths’ time
there was imported into Georgia
by two railroads alone (507 cars of
grain, 190 cars of> meat, 571 cars
of flour, 208 cars of hay.
Now, any man with common
sense can see that with the im
mense quantity of agricultural
products imported into our coun
try, as just stated, and the present
low price of cotton, the all cotton
farming will not do to depend up
on any longer. Let us stop that
plan and plant more corn, sow
more wheat, oats and peas, save
more hay and raise more hogs,
horses and cattle We can do so,
and there is nothing lacking hut
the application of energy. Let
every man take hold of this mat
ter with renewed energy, and we
will establish a new independence
in the agricultural business. 1
hope you see by doing as I have
above stated we can cut off the
wide and extensive channel of
trade and speculation with for
eign people, and also the middle
man’s profit, which I houestly be
lieve will develop a great change
in our corn cribs and barns and
pocketbooks. Some of the farm
ers are waking up to their true
condition on this line. I would
be glad to see the correspondents
of the News-Herald speak out on
this subject. It seems that we
cannot get along without a cam
paign of some sort, and I suggest
that we have an “agricultural
campaign” and hold up on poli
tics for awhile. I feel satisfied
the News-Herald will help us out;
so speak out, brother, and let us
in the meantime raise our home
supplies, and peace and plenty
will abound in the land of Gwin

In Juutice to her fame,

To write a mother’s name.
Make ink of tear* ami golden gems
And rttinflhino mixed together.
Then on tho marble of thy Memory
Wo write the name of mother.

The People and the Seaboard Air Line-
It is perhaps not generally un
derstood outside the Seaboard Air
Line territory, how cloaely the
people and tho Seaboard Air Line
management stands. The people
recoguizo that the Seaboard Air
Line is doing everything possible
to build up the individual interest
along its line, and they are not
only saying kind words for Mr. E.
St. John, the manager of the Sea
board, but many favors are extend-
ed to the road by individuals
thus showing their appreciation of
the work that i« being done. Just
recently a money contribution was
•out in by the people in the lit
tle village Marlville, N. C., to as
sist in the circulating library feat
ure ; and only a short while aince,
a lady in Athens, Ga., made a
contribution of an entire library,
one lady made a contribution of
ten thousand strawberry plants
for tho experimental farms; a gen
tleman in Georgia gave a fine Jer
sey buli to be added to the stock
department; another three fine
It is out of the ordinary to have
the people working ao closely and
harmoniously with a great corpo
ration, that they will'actually
make donations to it, but this is
all brought about by tho broad,
liberal policy of Mr. St. John.
If other lines of roads would
follow the exumple of the Seaboard
Air Line, there would be less fric
tion between the people and the
Railroads, and much good would
No doubt but what the people
along the new lines of road that
will soon come under the manage
ment of the Seaboard system are
congratulating themselves. They
will certainly be able to see u
marked change in remarkably
short time, provided the same lib
erality is extended to them that
has been extended to the people
located on the old Seaboard Air
Line; and it will certainly be ex
tended, if Manager St. John is
kept in charge of the entire line,
and no doubt but what he will be
retained, for certainly his equal as
a Railroad worker cannot be found
in the country.
A fisherman on the Oostanaula
has b«en using beef liver as bait,
carrying the meat always wrapped
in a newspaper. The bait when
put on the hook rotains, by its
sticky nature, parcels of the pa
per. A good-sized cat-fish was
caught the other day, when, ou
dressing it, the fisherman plainly
saw the letters, “Now is the time
to subscrib#,” printed in the fish
on the inßide of the fish’s stomach.
