Complaint Against the Bill to Open It to Ag-
Ne w York Times.
The highlands of Alabama abound in
coal and iron ore. A glance at the map
shows a tr: ct, nearly 100 miles square iu
the northeastern part of the State, which is.
penetrated by no railroad. Three or tour
lines of laudgraut railways inclose it. With
in the lines hie millions of acres of public
land, and a great piirt of this land is very
valuable because of coal or iron ore depsoits.
The general law provides that coal lands
may be taken at a minimum price of $20
per acre, when lying within fifteen miles
of a railroad, and for $10 acre at a greater
distance. Manyattemota have been made in
the last four .years to secure the euactmeutof
law which would allow persons and corpora
tion to buy these lands, as agnculrural lands,
at $1.25 an acre. Bills have ueen introduced

Xeached and Uolcached Ashes.
The question is ofteu asked.: What is
the corn punitive value of leached ashes t
The answeis hare been widely differeut.
While some hare claimed that a bushel
of leached ashes is worth as much as a
bushel ef unteached, others do not value
them worth more than one-third as much.
Why this difference f Do not cultivators
observe alike, or is there a great differ
encs in ashes f While, uo doubt , cultiva
tors are aireless iu theh- obseTvattons,
and there is every leason to believe that
there is n difference in the quality of
asl.es, theie are other, quite aa iiupoi taut
reasons, why lhei)e is a great difference
of opinion as to ths comparative value
of leached ashes. '
The first is because there are ether
elements of value in the ashes besides

laird already rich In potash and deficient
in phosphates, it will be seen at once that
the results would be iwoie tavorable than
if ajiplied to hind rich in phosphates aud
deficient iu potash. While if the uu
leached be applied to the first, anil leach
ed to the last, the result weuld be verv
unfavorable to the bached ashes. There
is another cause of litis great difference
of opinion, which is a frequent misunder
standing iu regard. to the measurement.
While oue party uttIIPTB lands a bushel
of leached ashes to simply mean a hush el
measured of leached, another party menus
bushel measured before it is leached ;
as it requires three bushels of uuteached
ashes to make one of leached, it will be
seen at once that such misunderstanding
must lead to a great difference of opiu
iouastothe value, so long as farmers differ
as to the amount ot diuereur tertiiizers
the soil con tai us. '
Each farmer, by his own observation
aud experiment, must decide what his
own soil is deficient in. and iu what k.
has a surplus. The best way to do this
is to apply different fertilizers and note
the results: by applying a bushel of
leached ashes bv the side of a bushel of
unleached. IT he li nils that the mileach-
ed does the best it is an indication that
his land is deficient in potash, but if (he

that thc potash is not as deficient as the

Packino Bran. The Western Miller's
Association some time ago offered a prize of
$1,000 for the best method ot packing wheat
bran securlev in a small compass. Our read
ers should know that this bran, of which im-
immense quantities accumulate all the large
mills, is worth three or fonr timesas much in
Europe as here, but on account of its great
bulk it cannot be snipped to advantage.
Mr. H. Q.Hall, of Fayetteville, being at
traded by thc notice of the Millers' Associ-
tion, immediately set himself to the task
qf finding a solution of the difficulty; and
he has produced the model of a proposed
machine which, to our unpracticed eye,
seems to possess merit. It a tube and rod
which packs the bran with enormous fbree
into barrels or other vessels, which close
with a valve when tilled to the utmost cap
acity. Mr. Hall intends applying for a pat
ent for his packer. Fayetteville Observer.
