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.

Nome thirty-live acres were cl-ared during the winter, put in corn in the spring and wood deliv ered in the summer. The est of the 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. a'1' tutu to the history of some of I ho individual fields and crops. )i the fall of Ihllfi I fo'gan on a three acre piece, half of which was galled tit! to I he fed olay subsoil and barren; the other, with more gray soil, was covered with broom-sedge and small two-horse subsoilers.

I his wits turneil under w ill a good-sized plow and three mules, covering a big roll oi briars, weed!- and trash hauled and placed in each 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 acre. 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 Hear with me" till I give the his tory of one other piece of fifteen acres, which has been in cultivation about fifty year. Moet of the top soil bad gone to the red clay. When I bough', it in 18i)6, the yield of wheal wu two and t quarter bushels rye sown, in the spring, when rye was in blotHii, it was turned with a sixteen inch plow and three mules, and after the usual harrowing and rolling, peas were drilled in with four hundred oundsof acid and pot ash. That summer chip manure, scrapings from o4ton mill. wunI yard, with some rich soil was hauled on Ihe worst places. In September all was turned under and everything done to procure a stand of clover. wu wilh the wheat. In the spring the wheat was cone over with weedrr r- ... 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 with s complete fertilizer, two hun- lred pounds tier acre, a heavy crop turned under and thorough prepara tion made for peas sown with three hundred pounds acid and potash per acre. l"eas to be cut for hay and wheat to follow, and I want more than twenty bushels er aero next harvest. 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 beginning. 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. This clover and rye are turned for l,..t l,,rv.t ,,, i , i . per auicn is m-iii out irom tne rush work liol so well done, tljis. Thomasville Orphanage, siiraksthr vetch and eas have solved the prol-' timely words which every young per- lent of hav ; two hravv. sure crops corn and peas, or peas only for hay. The corn and pea lands go in w heat, rye or oats for grain, or oats and vetch for hay; all to be followed by a crop of peas for hay and part of the pea stubble to tie sown in crimson clover, or vetch to be turned for cot ton in the spring. I try U) get a full third of my arable uplands in cotton each year, for this is my money crop, while the wheat and corn lands are always divided with other crops. A good pea-hay crop w ill give as much feed as a corn crop, and improve die lands besides.

I have not said scanvly anything of stable manure, as none has r i madeon this farm except in bottom pasture. 1 kirp cattle, to le sure, but they are wintered on Ihe home farm, and all the manure is needed there. This farm is workixl entirely by tenants, for whom we furnish everything and on nine, mere is not so much profit in this, but il is hard to get out of old ruts. To show my appreciation of manure. I am now building a cow barn on the Moore Farm fifty-four by one hundred and ten feet, w here cattle are to lie fat tened, thai I may have the use of (he manure in building up my xir fields. I sadlv need more humus lo let water in and hold il there. IV caving humus matter gives heat, and this with hiinuc acid and water helps to set free plant food, as well as let i in l! in air and Keeping tnc soil m good mechanical condition. Now, a few words alio.it commer cial fertilizers. Kor some five vt irs I have Urn mixing mv own. I have made numerous tests on different crops and fields and make my mix ture tocorresiond wilh these results. I alwavs buy for cash the highest grade raw materials and mix a high grade fertilizer. This spring I bought sixtv-eight tons, all told, and the composition I top-dres.mil my wheat and oats with was made as fol lows : Thirteen hundred iounds of sixteen er cent, acid phosphate, live hundred Niunds nitrate of soda, tm hundred ninils muriate of iotash. and would analyze ten and a quarter ier cent, phosphoric uei I, four and tlinv-qua iters ammonia, live per cent, potash, ptuv. The cotton fertilizer that the most of the tenants used was made from thirt'-en hundred and fifty pounds acid phosphate, two hundred and fifty muuds tankage, two hundred pounds cotton seed meal, one hundred Munds nitrate of soda, one hundred )munds murialeof IHilash, giving eleven and a half per cent, phosphoric acid, three cr cent, ammonia, two and three-quarters ier cent, t.f IHilash.

(Judo a numlier of mixtures arc made and used every year. To this manipulation of fer tilizers some of my neighbors attrib ute my success. I pile them on reno vating crops, sometimes, like some one was giving them to me, but I bank equally on manure, good prepa ration, seltvtion of seed an 1 thorough culture. For instance, 1 have select ed my seed corn in the field for some live years, following our U'st author ities, and I see a wonderful improve ment. It all looks like it had Uvn planted just when the moon was right. vwiai s won ii doing at all is worth doing right," has been a motto of mine. 1 want good, heavy mules, strong, large plows, and men who can handle them, A boy and the one-horse Ilixie is a poor outfit to im prove clay land with. Kmr good, big mules, a good driver, a sixu-eu-inch steel turn plow and a good man to shake it well, will be more to my liking. After a crop is planted on thoroughly prepared soil the battle is half won. As I am not contented with a half-won victory, I insist on thorough, rapid culture, kept ii until lute in the season. Never over task hands with big crops. Keep them well up with their uoik, pav them promptly, keep them in good spirits and interested in their work. lhey are as proud of a good crop as yon are.
