phase bear in mind that I am an
tindenrradnate in agriculture.
1 don't promise mine any cut-
and dried n-rcipt for building tip
worn nuil clay lands, ikt shall I offer
any quick, easy, "I 'heap John" way.
Tor I have discovered no such in my
limited exiierience. I can only give
you some tlui of what I have done,
my fail'ire Tnd successes, and let
you draw your own conclusions.
In I.VI5 I bought a worn-out farm
of one hundred and twenty -eif;hl
aeies, which h::d l ''n rented for a
ii-iinUr of years and umpi ly iivinc
r'nts. I pi iu- l .in account with th'S
Moore I inn, cliaiyjng it with every
hit of Lilmr. six per cent, inierest and
laves, n well a the original cost.
Tiler.' was some limber on it, the
best of which was at once cut and

n.tMed. Nome thirty-live acres were
cl-ared during the winter, put in
corn in the spring and wood deliv

old land wat put in cotton and (he
Korcr sown in peas. On some of
this pitorcr laud I sjvnt as much as
I 15 per acre in giivn manures, fer
tilizers and tillage More anything
was taken off.
Today this farm has a balance lo
its credit (f more than 1 paid for it
originally, and a fair growing crop I
with a crop of wheat is paid for
last year this farm gave me clear of
exenscs just about the amount of
the original cost. 1 have raised forty
four bales of cotton in one year, over
four hundred bushels of corn and
over six hundred bushel of wheal
on it. I have built up (tortious of it
from mere galls to lands bringing
average crops, while other part have
lieeti worked in cotton for the dollar
there was in it, thus breaking it
down. It is no niitdel farm, as such
are often deserilied : "Three dollars
eiit for each dollar taken off." I
have never sHMit many cents for
looks only, but have been working
for the profit there was in il. Often
I have had to build my tiiiances up
at the expense of everything else. I
have nut only kept a general account
with this farm, but an individual
account with each field and every
crop raised, as it has been worked
entirely by hired lalmr, under my
own suHTvision. I also keep an ac
count wiih one other farm w hich has
been rented all the time for live
yeirs. The profit there have been
from fifteen to twenty-live per cent.,
and the tenant, a good worker, has
made handsome profits also.

furrow of the liarren iiart. In De
cember about seven toils of lime w as
broadcasted ; in the spring the land
was disk-harrowed and six hundred
pounds of kainit with six hundred
pounds of acid phosphate was broad-
asted ; shallow furrows were drawn
about three feet apart and cotton
seed planted w ith six hundred iHiunds
of complete fertilizer. Late in Aug
ust crimson clover seed were sown
and worked in with cultivator. This
lint cost mc thirteen and a quarter
cents per suind.
In the spring of lMIS I roplowed
and drilled in oats and clover with
six hundred pounds of a complete
fertilizer. At harvest the clover was
lipiied off also. The lime, the fer
tilizer and the thorough culture of
the cotton had given a splendid
stand. During the summer and fall
the clover was mown and raked up
on the best places, only to be scat-
ten-d on the heavier clays. I he fol
lowing spring the best was taken for
hay and that on the ptorcr left w hen'
it was mown, and all the trimmings
f fence-rows and ditch-banks near
by were hauled and scattered there.
In August, 18'.)'.), this second growth
of clover was turned ; seed bed well
prepared with disk and drag har
rows, used alternately, with a twenty-live-hundred-Kiund
roller till the
middle of October, when wheat was
drilled in with aKuit six hundred
pounds of acid phosphate. In March,
l'.MK). a dressing of one hundred and
fifty pounds of nitrate of soda was
given. The yield was eighty-four
bushels, or twenty-eight bushels er
After the wheat, peas were nut in
and mown for hay ; crimson clover
was sown at once and turned in the
spring of 1001, for a variety test of
cotton. Of all the sixteen varieties
the Improved King gave the best
yield of lint. Last year tbe stalk
were dragged, then run around with
heavy team and large, straight
shovel. A two-horse slant-tooth har
row was dragged across tho rows to
put the stalks in the deep trenches,
and two furrows were turned back
on them and the land harrowed w ith
the rows, the corn planter following
m every row, as the cotton had been
planted in four-feet rows. As the
corn was coming up u was again
harrowed, regardless of rows, leaving
the land level. Son a long, nanvw
bull-tongue was run close around
tho corn and as deep as one horse
could pull it, and again tho ground
harrowed with two horse harrow,
About everv ten davs two more close
deep furrows were cut off the middle
with the bull-tongue, it taking about
eight furrows to finish and from
forty to fifty davs after tho corn had
been planted. In this time the nar
row cultivators had gone around the
corn twice. After the middles were
finished, corn from eighteen to twen-tv-four
inches high, nothing but
broad cultivators were used, cutting
about two inches deep, until silks
appeared, when peas were sown and
cultivators run : lor the last time.
Fodder was taken, including the first
blado above the ear, and tops' cut
later. When the corn was gathered
it measured thirty-five bushels per
acre. 1 he etaiKi while standing were
cut into six-yen. lengths with corn
knife, and then the peas, and all
chopped fine with a disk harrow and
oals and vetch sown about zoth or
September with nine hundred pounds
of arid and potash, and top dressed
in March with six hundred pounds
high-grade complete fertilizer. The
yield was at least two tuns of cured
hav per acre. As a fair stand of vol
unteer red clover is on the land, I
am leaving it, instead of sowing in
peas. This piece of land has paid
Urge profits oa all labor spent on it,
and will now yield three times the
crop it would have made in lam

was in blotHii, it was turned with a

wu wilh the wheat. In the spring
the wheat was cone over with weedrr
and clover seed sown again where il
had been w inter-killed. My wheatcrop
averaged about eight bushels xt
acre, at a cost of ?14o per bushel,
and the clover failed ouly in suits.
These were mow n and scattered over
the bald places with other refuse. In
189!), after turning for wheat, several
hundred bushels of raw cotton seed
were also scattered over these galls.
On a fine, smooth seed bed wheat
was drilled in with three hundred
pounds per acre of a high-grade fer
tilizer. At harvest my yield was a
little over twenty bushels er acre.
I And was hastily proiutred. fertilized
and peas sown for hay, and stubble
sown in crimson clover. A fine chance
of clover was ready In be turned for
cotton in 1'JOl, which was planted
anil cultivated flat. The field aver
aged a net profit of ifl'.V.W per acre,
and the lint cost me in actual work,
after deducting the cash gotten for
the seed, ?2.53 per hundred. And
could I have gotten forty-eight cents
per bushel for my seed I would have
had my lint free of oust. As this cot
ton was very late in maturing, 1 de
cided to plant again in cotton and
raise a cheap crop. A deep furrow
was run through the middles, then a
railroad iron was d lagged square
across the rows, breaking off the old
stalks and dragging them into the
furrow, a complete fertilizer was put
in and listed on and stalks plowed
nit. Ridges were then dragged down
mil rolled where the ground was
L-loddv, and cotton planted. This
vield was heavier, averaging three
hundred and fifteen pounds of lint
per acre, at a cost of two cents per
pound, the cheapest cotton 1 have
ever raised. At the second picking
last full rye was sown, as the crimson
clover sown in August had burned
ut. This spring ryo was top-dressed

lred pounds tier acre, a heavy crop
turned under and thorough prepara
tion made for peas sown with three

When I began farming I tried a
six-year rotation: cotton; cotton; corn
and peas; wheat; clover; wheat, fol
lowed by peas, and then hack to the
Kxiienence soon showed that a
shorter rotation would suit my lands
and pocket-book better, as clover so
often failed me, throwing the w hole
system out of gear. 1 adopted a
three-year rotation : cotton ; corn ;
wheat. Of course, catch-crops are
sown, and the rotation is not iron
clad. (Some of my cotton lands are
sown in crimson clover at the last
working, while others are sown in
rye at the first or second picking.

Deafness Cannot be Cured
by local ippliHIUons, as they cannot
reach Ihe diseased portion ol Ihe ear.
There is only one way lo cure deafness
and that ia by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed
condition of the mucous lining of the
Eustachian Tube. When this tube
gets inflamed you have a rumbling
sound or imperfect hearing, and when
il ia entirely closed deafnesa is the re
sult, and unlesa the inflammation can
be taken out aod this tube restored to
its normal condition, hearing will be
destroyed forever; nine cases out of
ten are caused by calarrb, wbics Is
nothing but an inflamed eoadilion of
the mucous tuiiataa,
