A letter fioin Pleasant GarJeu.
Guilford county, at which The Cou
rier has many readers, reeeutly pub
lished in the Greensboro Teleguiui,
gives the following intriesliiig
Pleasant Garden is only six
miles from Greensboro, in Fentress
Township. This township was tie
first in the county and one of the
tirst in the state to vote a local tax
for schools. Consequently ir. iu
a good school system, in nddiiio
to its regular public schools Pleasant
Gardeu hus the township hih
school, which prepares for collide
and the actual duties of life. Tliis
school is situated at Pleasant Gar
den and is at present being success
fully run by a faculty of four te.icli
ers. Its catalogue makes provision
for the music and the business
courses in addition to the regular
g:aleufc o k.
The rule that education brings
progress has found no exception
here, even though this has been con
sidered the quietest of places. Mr.
Edgar Tucker, of the l'mn of Tuck
er aud Krwin, of Greensboro, has
built a large handsome dwelling
here this summer and now with his
family occupies it. His new store
building has been completed and the
goods are being housed preparatory
to his opening in the near future.
In addition to this good fortune
to our little burg might be added i
the proposed new chair factory. The!
company with ample c ish has 'rga- j
nized and the site h is been selected ;
for the factory whicli vill add so!
materially to the tinancial welfare of !
this immediate community. j
The "Het Society."
Marshville Our Hume.
In a sermon at Trinity Metho
dist church tit Charlotte, last week
Dr. J. C. Kilgo said: "Have you
ever thought of it, that the men of
wealth of this country have all been
the sous of poor men? The sons of
rich men never accumulate wealth,
and when a rich man's son goes into
bankruptcy he goes into hopeless
bankruptcy. Aud do you Know
that the best society, so-called, has
never given to the wotld a great
man or a great woman? Aud that
is why I am glad that I do not be
long to the best society in my town.
I do not belong to the b.jst society
in my town and never have. And
my daughter does uot belong to it,
and I thank God the best sjciety
Continuing on the same line of
thought, Dr. Kilgo related this inci
dent: "I heard a Methodist preacher
in a district confereuce not long ago
make a report in which he said: '1
am sorry to say that some of our
best people play cards, dance aud
drit.k.' I told him that if I were in
his place I would amend that report
or move out of thatcommnnity. He
asked nie what I me-uit. and I an
swered that I would amend that re
port so that it would read 'some of
my worst people' do these things.
These people who constitute what
is called the 'best society' are not
the best people of any community
And in some instances the most they
can do is to nurse poodle dogs and
little fauntleroy boys."
The "best society" cuts its figure
in every little town. Those who be
long to the ' best society" turn up
their noses at those who do not be
long to the "best."' A young man
of Marshville said the oth.r day:
"There are three classes in this little
town when there should be only one
class." Judged bv "commercialism" !
which places a money value on
th.iigs, there are some folks in these j
diggings who caper in the "best so-1
ciety" and haven'c got teidiys ra-j
tions ahead. While they belong to
the "best society" ii -,heir town it is
a fact that they wouldn't be per
mitted to stay in the kitchen during
a swell reception among the "best
society" in the larger cities. Theie
fore the "best society" doesn't in
clude the sime grade of folks. Just
what the "best society" is depends
upon the 6ize of the town. Th
"best" in a small town wouldn't be
allowed as Servants to the "best" in
the larger cities.

In Virginia the practice is to follow
tuhacco with wheat and the wheat
with clover for two years and then
back to tobacco. On the tobacco it is
the custom to apply per acre 400
pounds of a fertilizer analyzing 3 per
cent ammonia, 0 per cent phosphoric
ncid and 3 per cent potash. This adds
to the soil a lotal of twelve pounds of
ammonia, thirty-six pounds of phos
phoric acid and twelve pounds of pot
ash per acre. It is noticeable that the
recpiirements of tobacco for phosphoric
ncid are very small, but as a matter
of held practice it Is found that the
crop will show signs of suffering from
lack of this substance uuless the avail
able supply is very much in excess of
the amount actually taken up by the
crop. Where wheat follows tobacco no
additional fertilization is given, de
pendence being solely upon the natural
resources of the soil and the remnant
of the application given the tobacco.
It is seldom that more thau ten or fif
teen bushels of wheat to the acre is
Tobacco is a crop that with nn In
crease in yield usually glvfs a corre
sponding increase in ipiality, provided
the soilteoudition and management are
right. It lias often been found that it
pays to apply very large amounts of
fertilizer to a tobacco crop where it
might not have proved profitable to do
so with other and lower priced farm
crops. The Virginia farmers generally
cultivate their crops deeply, thus in
juring the root system which is spread
ing near the surface. The rule is to
give the tobacco three cultivations,
using n one horse implement (the first
two with a double shovel plow and
ihe last with a turning plow), and two
hoeing by hand. Except In the ease
of low lying lields. where there Is dan
ger from standing water, it in lest to
discard the turning plow entirely and
use nothing but implements for shal
low cultivation. This has been fully
demonstrated in recent experiments
where the ciliciency and profitableness
of frequent and shallow cultivation of
tobacco have been studied. The shovel
plow may be used to advantage and
is recommended for the tirst cultiva
tion. At this time the roots of tho
plants have not spread into the row
and the soil is likeky to be packed
from heavy rains and from tramping
It at the time of setting. Ieep, thorough
breakiug out of the middles is to be.

ndvised at this time, and the double
shovel plow with narrow blades Is
about tlie best tool available.
As the plants grow and the roots
begin to occupy the soil between the
rows deep cultivation should be
stopped aud frequent shallow cultiva
tion substituted. For this purpose a
lire toothed cultivator (Fig. CO), with
an c!sli:tcn inch sweep and a depth
regulating attachment, is recommend
ed. This will keep down the weeds
and preserve an effectual soil mulch,
which retards surface evaporation with
out doing Injury to th roots. About
six cultivations are necessary to keep
the soil tu good tilth, or an average
of one a week between the setting and
topping seasons, the soli being worked
a little toward the plant at each cul
tivation. Caps Fop Haycocks.
For the benefit of those who are un

properly cecked, will shed water just
as well as clover In faet. many farm
era claim that It will shed water even
better and that it is no more difficult to

this' may be true, we urge the use of
