Their Operations If They Would
Well directed diligence and industry
are generally crowned with a suitable
return. To carve out a perfect form, to
frame a pure thought, to paint a beau
tiful picture is worthy of the highest
ambition. To do something, to cause
two blades of grass to grow where one
grew before, to act well our part, to
know that we are not drones in the busy
hive is an indescribable satisfaction.
The boy who lands a single fish or traps
hia first catch of birds, after a long and
weary day of anxious toil, experiences a
keener delight in the possession than he
could possibly feel had the same work
been accomplished by other hands. The
same is true of the man who turns the
fallow lauds and cultivates the respoP
eive soil that he may enjoy his daily
bread. Believing, therefore, that wheat
culture in its broad sense would be an
industry of vital interest to our farmers
at this time, wo shall devote most of the
space of our August talk to wheat. The
exact origin of wheat may not be known,
still we may reasonably conclude that
wheat was among the fruits of the first
garden When Hiram, king of Tyre,
was building the temple Solomon sent
him wheat; hence we conclude that this
most esculent grain was very early in
our history regarded as a most excellent
The first public letter issued from the
Department of Agriculture, after the
present Commissioner had been in
stalled, was an appeal to the farmers of
Georgia to sow largely of wheat and
oats. However, it is but justice to state
that the Macon Telegraph nearly a year
ago took up the wheat and grain ques
tion, and offered prizes for the best es
says on wheat growing. These papers
were read at a convention held at Ma
oon, and caked by that paper last Octo
ber. The attendance was small, but
the papers were good. Unusual as it
may seem, this daily paper kept up the
agitation in favor of wheat growing,
making it a feature of almost every is
sue, and a great many farmers were in
duced to plant who had not planted be
fore. A special point made, and in
sisted on, had great weight, and that
was that the negro farmer, who
had a wife or daughter in a white
man's kitchen, could make cotton
at 8 cents per pound; while the white
farmer could not make it for less than
8 cents. Therefore, there was a disas
trous competition between the white
and black cotton planter, and the for
mer was going to the wall on low
prices, while the latter was improving
his condition, and continuing to swell
the receipts at all the ports and all the
markets. The white man must make
a shift in his farming operations. In
order to make this point oome home at
once, and to give a zest to the start, the
Macon Telegraph offered gold prizes for
the best yield in wheat, and these
prizes were awarded at a second wheat
growers’ convention, which was held in
Macon on July 12 of this year. The
latter convention was largely attended
and the report from the wheat fields
was most gratifying. The honors went
to Spaulding and Washington counties
in the distribution of the prizes. One of
the most encouraging signs of the times
is the great interest in wheat and grain
growing which has developed in the
state within the last few months. It
may be said, therefore, that this work
has been fairly started; bnt much is yet
to be done, and this department will
oontlnne to contribute all it can to this
A FERFBCT VARIETY OF WHEAT.
Sinoe the growing wheat plant and
ripening grain have so many enemies to
encounter and climatic conditions af
fecting the yield of wheat, it is all im
portant to select a variety that can best
withstand the many drawbacks inci
dent to this grain. Hence, I will men
tion some of the characteristics incident
to a good variety of wheat. Get as
early a variety as possible, as a few
days, (some years,) means much with
this erop. Some wheat will fall before
ft ripens, while the stems of another
kind will maintain an erect position
until the grain is perfectly ripe. Select
a variety with a strong and stiff stem;
eeleot the wheat also that will best
withstand the extreme cold weather.
Other things being equal, get the wheat
that has a thin ekin or bran. With
these few suggestions, select yonr seed
wheat and have it ready to plant in Oo-
SOIL AND PREPARATION FOR WHEAT.
A farmer may sow the best wheat
and the bent varieties, and fail in his
wheat crop, if he has failed in thorough
preparation and continued good man
agement of his soil from year to year.
One of the chief objects is to keep the
vegetable matter and mineral portions
as near or as much on the surface as
possible, so that the roots of the plants
may strike out horizontally instead of
striking out iu a more vertical direction.
When they spread out horizontally,
they form a kind of mat in the soil a
few inches deep, which rises aud set
tles down bodiiv when the ground
freezes aud thaws. Hence the soil mav
freeze a number of times during the
winter and still your grain may not be
killed, as the roots are matted together
horizontally and the plants ure not
thrown out of the soil. On the other
hand, if the vegetable matter and fer
tilizers be mixed with a good depth of
soil, the roots strike deep, looking for
the fertile elements of the soil, and
they will be raised and broken by the
freezes. Now, if we can break or turn
over a few inches of the top soil, and
then pulverize the soil below this stra
tum, keeping the vegetable matter aud
fertilizers near the surface, we will see
a remarkable yield in the wheat crop.
We can remember before the war most
of our wheat was raised on newly
cleared laud. We could not plow it
deep, but simply harrow or scratch over
the rough new ground and put our
grain in. Then we had but little com
plaint of winter killed wheat. Then
nature did for us what we must do now.
We must, as far as possible, restore the
conditions of nature Then we had for
the seed bed of our wheat the rich ashes
of the burnt logs and brush harrowed
into the thin stratum of leaf mould.
The wheat might have been better in
those days had che hard subsoil under
lying the leaf mould been broken up
with a subsoil plow, without having
been turned above the rich mould.
Then to repeat, keep the soil that is
best, or a thin mellow stratum of rich
soil, at or near the surface. Subsoil as
the conditions may demand.
SOIL FOR WHEAT.
The question is often asked, why a
certain plot of ground, that yields a
good crop of almost everything else,
will not produce wheat. And why ?
Simply because the roots of the plants
cannot find in that soil the proper ele
ments of plant food to produce the
wheat grains. In one soil the little
roots find all they need for the perfect
development of ihe kernels of the wheat,
while iu another soil the roots send out
their numerous little mouths in search
of the nourishment they so much need
but never find. It is not in the soil,
and it must be supplied or you will reap
in vain. The soil adapted to wheat is a
so;} in which the predominating charac
teristics are ion in aud clay, aud this is
much improved by a large proportion of
lime, furnished either by nature or man.
Your soil must be dry, underdrained if
necessary, as it is impossible to make a
large crop of wheat if there is an excess
of water in the land. Another feature
in a good wheat soil is, that it must
have an abundant supply of nitrogenous
matter with sufficient phosphoric acid,
potash and lime. If the soil is lacking
in these elements, use plenty of barn
yard manure. Do not be afraid to use
plenty of it, and concentrate it. It is
better to put ten tons on one acre than
to spread it on two; you will make more
wheat per acre and save more labor.
Also apply plenty of wood ashes; this is
very important, as these ashes contain
phosphoric acid, potash, lime and solu
ble silica, all essential elements in the
constitution of the wheat plant. Dr.
Lee of New York says, “I regard it as a
fact of great practical importance, that
wood ashes, even leached ashes, found
on nearly every farm, contain all the
earthy elements of this iu valuable bread
bearing plant. ” The organic elements
of the wheat form about 96 per cent of
its substance. Mr. Todd tells us, that
water and its constituents, oxygen and
hydrogen, carbon and nitrogen, are the
four elementary ingredients of all culti
vated plants, besides their minerals.
These are indispensable, and fortunately
nature has provided an amount of car
bon and nitrogen in the air, if not in
the soil, more than equal to the wants
of vegetation. Much of our lands have
been run down by unwise cultivation
and are well nigh exhausted. These
lands need nitrogen and available phos
phoric acid aud potash and particularly
lime. To restore these elements to our
wasted lands, sow cow peas after grain,
and turn them unaer iu the fall, first
having broadcasted barnyard manure,
ashes and lime; continue this plan for a
few years, and your lands will grow
richer and richer, and your harvest will
be larger and larger, and the farmer
more independent as be grows older. It
is a well established faot, that without
nitrogon in some form it is impossible
to grow one kernel of good wheat. It
has been said by high authority, that a
quart of urine from a horse that has
been fed on grain contains nitrogen
enough to supply a bushel of wheat.
Do we appreciate the money value of
this animal product? Fill your barns,
stables and lots with some good absorb
ant—such as straw, cornstalks, leaves
of the forest, pulverized charcoal, swamp
muck, and at the proper time compost
them, all the product of the farm, and
you have a most suitable fertilizer for

Going Back to the Fame.
“Did you ever notice how many
farmers have quit their homes in
recent years aud moved to town ?”
remarked a gentleman on the
street coeuer yesterday.
“I have not only noticed that,”
replied a companion, “but I have
also noticed that a great many are
more anxious to get back than
they were to come away from the
farms. A once well-to-do farmer
came to me yesterday and asked
of,l could tell him where to find a
job. He said he had been in town
nearly a year, and in all that time
he had not averaged a half dollar
a day. He had always been a
good farmer, but when he found
himself with a family of six chil
dren he had decided that the coun
try was no place for them, and he
determined to move to town and
give them the advantages of good
schools. But when he got here he
found nothing to do. A number
of his neighbors had also moved
into the city and abandoned their
farms to negro tenants All of
them, he said, regretted the step,
as they had been sorely disappoint
ed m the conditions in the city.
Few of them found any employ
ment at all, and those that were
more fortunate were glad to earn
50 cents or a dollar a day, while
their wives had to support the
family as best they could by run
“My friend volunteered the in
formation that he was going l ack
to the farm as soon as he could.
He said he had rented for the
year, and could not get away at
once, but he declared if he ever
got fixed on bis farm he’d never
leave. He thought it would be
better next time to employ a gov
erness for his children rather than
break up and come away from the

A PATHETIC PORTRAIT.
There is a peculiar portrait in
Washington which has created
much interest among those who
know of its existence. Its pecu
liarity is that every year it has
been changed to show the changes
which time would have made in
the original. The portrait is by a
Washington artist, and is that of
his wife, painted mauy years ago
when she was a young bride. A
few years after the portrait was
painted tbe young wife died, and
so great was the grief of the artist
that he determined to keep her
likeness with him all the time,and
to do so he decided that year by
year he would change the portrait
so as to make it grow old with
Every year, on the anniversary
of his wedding day, the artist
locked himself in his studio and
changed the lines of the face of the
portrait, adding what he thought
would make the difference of one
year. There have been mauy an
niversaries of that marriage day,
aud consequently many changes iu
ttie portrait. Today the picture
is that of an old woman, the hair
turned gray, the face wrinkled
aud pale, but still beneath the
marks of time, as made by the
brush of the artist, can be seen
the early beauty of the bride and
the attractiveness of the young
Quite a sensation has been
caused at Rome by W. M. Bridges’
announcement that he had been
called to preach, and would do so
whether the Baptist church re
stored him to full fellowship or
not. Bridges was Floyd county’s
school commissioner, and has
twice been convicted of embezel
ment. The first time the case was
appealed, and a new trial secured.
He was agaiu convicted, and for
the second time the case went to
the Supreme court. It was argued
once, but the judges have ordered
a second arguing, which is to
occur in October. Before his
troubles Mr. Bridges was an or
dained Baptist minister, but he
was expelled both from the minis
try aud membership. Sunday
morning he attended services in
the North Rome Baptist church,
and there made a statement to the
effect that he was sorry for the
way iu which he had acted toward
his church and asked to be re-in
stated. The church went into con
ference aud Mr. Bridges’ request
was tabled. He then announced
that God had called him to preach,
and that he would do so, irrespect
ive of the church’s decision. He
then said that he would preach iu
that church Sunday evening, and
notified the janitor to have the
building opened aud lighted up for
him. After he left, the church
once more went into conference
and gave strict orders to lock the
church and not allow Mr. Bridges
to use it. It is said that a guard
was placed at tho door, but this is
not substantiated. Upon learning
this Mr. Bridges announced that
he would preach in the Congrega
tional Church Sunday evetiing.and
a tremendous crowd was out to
hear him. He states that he is go

wishes or desires of any of his for

A Tragedy in Beal Life.
“It’s a queer world,” said a New
York physician, as he laid the
morning paper aside.
“What prompted the original re
mnrk?” asked a visitor.
“Well, I was just reading an ac
count of a stabbing affair, And it
suddenly occurred to me that I
had known the man who did the
killing.” The doctor Bettled back
in his chair, and the visitor waited
for the story. After a few mo
ments it came.
“When I first began to practice,
I did an immense amount of char
ity work. Every fellow does that
at the start for experience, and la
ter he keeps it up for humanity’s
sake. I had pretty good success
with children and made quite a
name down in the tenement dis

great deal of my pocket mouey on
“One summer a woman began
bringing a Bick bahv to me. A
small boy, about 6 years old, al
ways came with them and seemed
fairly strong aud well, but the ba
by was a pitiful little thing, with
a thin, white face and big blue
oyes with a look of pain in them.
The woman seemed an ignorant,
honest soul and generally wore a
thick, dark veil to hide a black
eye or great blue bruise. It is
easy euough to figure out a thing
like that, you know, but she never
spoke of her husband or com
plained, so I didn’t ask any ques
“She brought the baby often,
and each time it looked more
waxen and scrawny, but I couldn’t
find out that the child had any
disease, and all tho symptoms
pointed to a lack of nourishment.
'“At last one morning 1 said to
tiie mother that I believed the
babv was starving, and I didn’t
intend to allow her to leave the
office till she had told the truth
about the affair. She looked stub
born for a moment and wouldn’t
answer, but then tears began to
roll down her bruised, discolored
cheeks and she confessed that she
didn’t have enough food to give
the baby. She worked hard, but
her husband drank and took every
cent she made and beat her every
day in the bargain. She was fond
of the brute iu spite of all that
and told me a long story about
the heavenly nature the fellow
had before he begau to driuk.
“Finally I told her I would
give her a quart of milk every day.
I wouldn’t give her the mouey,
because I didn’t covet the privil
ege of buying bad whiskey for her
hußband, but that I would pay the
nearest milk depot to supply her
with a quart a day. That would
feed the baby and leave some for
little Joe, who didn’t look so well
eh he did when the two first begau
calling on me.
“After that I did not hear any
more about the caso for a week or
two. Then my friends turned up
again. The baby looked worse
than ever, and the mother’s face
was a patchwork iu blue and green
but little Joe was quite rosy. I
didn’t understand it. The baby
was in a bad condition and I did
what I could for it. After I left
my office I went down to the milk
depot. The man said my woman
had had her quart of milk every
“I puzzled over the thing that
night. The next morning the trio
were at my office. The baby’s blue
eyelids were closed and I thought
at first it was not breathing, but
found a faint flutter. I couldn’t
see any reason for such a state of
things, so once more led the wom
un into my private office and shut
the door. Then I said :
“ ‘Now look here. There’s a
mystery about this, and you’ve
got to tell me what’s the matter.
That baby's starving to death,
and I want to know what you’ve
done with the milk.’
“The woman looked scared and
turned pale botween the bruises.
Then she gave a sort of wail and
jumped up, still holding the baby.
“ ‘No, the baby didn’t have the
milk!’ she said in a frantic sort of
way. 'I gave it to little Joe.
There wasn’t enough to feed
them both, and Joe began to get
sick, and I loved him better than
I did the baby. I ain’t had a
crust to eat myself, but I couldn’t
let Joe die. The baby is only a
girl, and if she does live she’ll be
unhappy like me, and I don’t like
her like Ido Joe. I thought both
of them were going to die, and I
couldn’t live without Joe, so I
gave him the milk and just let ba
by have a little. Maybe you think
I ain’t suffered watching the baby,
but I couldn’t spare Joe. Some
day he’ll be a man, and I’ll be
proud of him. A man cau do any
thing, but a girl would do just
what I’ve done. Joe shan’t diet’
“She was screaming the words
out., and seemed almost crazy. The
thing was awful. It made me feel
“‘Why, you idiot,’l said, ‘why
didn’t you tell me ? I’d have
looked out for Joe, too.”
“Just then the baby opened its
eyes—great, uncanny, weird eyes
in the tiny face It stared at me
in a miserable way that made my
heart come into my throat. Then
all the light died out of the eyes,
but they still stared.
“There was nc use saying any
thing more to the mother. She
sat. down and looked at the baby
in a quiet, stunned way. Then she
reached out and put an arm around
little Joe and held him tight. I
told her I would keep on payiug
for the milk as long as she wanted
it, and sho and Joe and the baby
“I never saw them again. When
I went to the house they had gone,
and no one seemed to know where
they had moved. Joe’s the fellow

EASE AND DISEASE.
A 3hort Lesion on the Meaning of A
Disease is the opposite of ease.
Webster defines disease as “lack
of ease, uneasiness, trouble, vexa
tion, disquiet.” It is a condition
due to some derangement of the
physical organism. A vast ma
jority of the “dis-ease” from which
people suffer is due to impure
blood. Disease of this kind is
cured by Hood’s Sarsaparilla,
w'hich purifies, enriches and vital
izes the blood. Hood’s Sarsapa
rilla cures sorofula, salt rheum,
pimples and all eruptions. It
tones the stomach and creates a
good appetite, and it gives vigor
and vitality to the whole body.
It reverses the condition of things,
giving health, comfort and “ease”
in place of “disease.”
