FARMS AND FARMERS.
Short Talk With Farmers
r'AM. I ROTS SOCIAL
Snrincr mid nmmpr r-roiw bein '
disposed of, it is well to plan and
begin preparation for fall crops.
We are apt to feel like taking a rest
now for awhile and within nrnner
limits this is light and proper.
Farmers ought to visit each other,
inspect farms and compare notes.
Nothing is more profitable. Each
one has his own way of doug
things, and if one plan gives betlor ,
results than another, it can be sosn i
by all and afterwards adopted It j
ia a gTeat mistake to suppose that '
any one farmer knows it all. Some
may know more than others, but
every one is sure to be benefitted
by examining bis neighbor's ways ,
and methods. One is apt to get
narrow and one sided if he stays at
home too mnch and farmers above
all others need to guard against ,
this. But whilst resting and in-:
dulging in social pleasures, one can ,
plan and think, and talk over his j
plans and his neighbor's. They
may offer good suggestions from
' their experience. One may have .
' tried just what yoa were thinking
! of doing, and it did not work well. !
Another may be able to suggest
: something better.
Rye, barley, oats, ciover and
grass are the leading crops to which
' attention should now be turned. It
' will be eii weeks to two months
: before it is time to sow, but the
preparation of tho land should be
; gin at once. It is often too dry to
break up land at this period ot the
year. Hence advantage should be
' taken of every rain. Once land is
j well pulverized, it will retain mois
ture aad start crops much better
than that which has to bo broken
and worked at, jast at seeding time.
Deep and repeated stirring ot the
bu.. iw.v.y u i,,.uu
makes it dry ofl rapidiy. break it,
therefore, in aavance. and let it
take a rain or two before seeding

not form, it will be very apt to be
in good condition when seeding
time comes. After laad is once
well broken, harrowing will keep it
in good condition abmost indefinite
ly. This is a lesson which most of
our farmers have not sufliclently
learned; they rely on the plow too
much, on the harrow too little.
Another implement, whose im
portance we wish to stress in this
connection, is a heavy roller. It
onght to follow the plow and pre
cede tha harrow. It makes the
work ot the harrow much more
thorough. Moreover, rolling the
soil greatly facilitates the coming
op oi seeu m ury wearner. lmu
you never notice how mnch better
small seed, like the turnip, come up!
in tracks made on the fresu-stirred 1
soil ? Loose soil dries before they
have time to germinate. Press it
down, and moisture continues to
reach it from below. Notice in the
early morning how much wetter it
:s in a track than in the loose earth
around it. Now, good reader, if
yon have not a good heavy two
horse roller get or make one. The
present period of comparative leis
ure is a good time to do it. Get
two cuts ot oak timber, eighteen .
inches long and two feet in diame-,
tcr if you can. Eighteen inches
will do, but two feet is better. Turn
them twice as you would the rollers
of a sorghum mill. Bore a two inch
bole through the centre of each,
and put in an iron rod, which
should project four inches at each
end. Put a washer in between the
two rollers, and adjust them iu a
frame with tongue, and you will
have an excellent implement. Two
short rollers are better than one
long one, the first turns more easier
than the second and is more easily
For breaking the land you will
need either a good two horse turn
plow, or a two-horse scooter. The
latter is preferable, as it does not
expose the soil so fully to the sun
as the turn plow does. For harrow
ing, the disc harrow is the best. It
pulverir.es well and brings up noth
ing which has been buried by the
plow. Having selected the land,
break it once if the soil is wet
enough. If not after the first rain
follow the plow at once with roller,
and it with the harrow, and leave
it thus until the next rain, then
harrow again, and continue to har
row after rainfall till seeding time.
One who pursues this course, and is
watchful, will hardly ever fail to
get his fall crops started in good
time. Those who put otV prepara
tion to the last minute are very apt
to be caught. L. J.

river planters say that the outlook
tor a good crop of rice this year is
promising. Keports from other
sections, however, are not encour
aging. On the Savannah river the
indications are that the yield will
be by no means so gieat as that of
last year. A number of planters
have not taken interest in the crop
this year, and have allowed their
land to lay idle. Along that river
there are 2,-50 acres that were
cultivated last year that were not
planted this year, and this will cut
quite a large ligure in the aggre-
gate yield. The cool spring kept
back the early rice, and it will be
from nine to twelve days late, but
it has not been injured.

Pa compliance with this law Treasurer
Bain is looking up the various banking
institutions in the State and calling for
statements. On account of the great
number of private banking institutions
oi :!:e State he is experiencing some
diiliculty in finding them all out. There
: no provision for ;i ystematic "look
ing them up." and the treasurer is
v.iealy dependent upon replies to in-'
e'liiie; sent to county officers for his
nil rmati in of them. 1 ndividuals op

t , .-x amine the law and prepare their

far. reran.; have bet n received from
over half the counties of the State and
others are daily being made. Tho re

membered that while tho treasurer has
no authority to compel the publication
of the statement the lav. requires it.
