One of these i lines, as has been stated, is to run ! i by way ot the Virginia Midland and !

These are to be essentially all rail ; lines, and as such will come into, i competition with the water lines, 1 but it ia claimed that the rivalry i will be friendly, and that rates ; .wars are to be at an pud. Lach J system is to furnish its quota ol ; : cars, of a similar pattern, to carry j i 40,000 pounds, and to be marked with the names of the several lines, jthns: ''Atlantic Coast Dispatch,'' i etc. Kach company has gone ac tively to work to furnish the cars for these through "Dispatch" lines as early as practicable.

In the new order ol things the relations of the railroads to the water lines will differ from what they have Ixen in several important icspects, no doubt. But the fact of the exist ence ot these two rival systems of transportation should serve to se cure for Baltimore the lowest at tainable freight rates to the South. Fertilizing with ( lover. As regards keeping np the fer tility of the farm, bought manures are "too expensive, and it is hardly possible to make a sufficiency of home made manures; we then must resort to sowing clover, rotating crops, and resting part of the farm. Sowing clover is our cheapest and surest way of fertilizing, for when growing on the land, we can graze it or mow it for forage, and its 1 effects as a fertilizer last for several years. Waldo F. Brown, of Ohio, one of the most intelligent and sue , cessful farmers ! this of clover: of the West, says "With thirtv-five 'years of careful observation of the i effects of clover, I have each year valued it higher than I did the pre vious year; a crop of clover cannot ' be grown on my eoil withoat bene fiting; no matter what use it is put to whether naatared eat for bay, allowed to mature a crop of seed, plowed under, or burned off, and each farmer who grows clover can 1 determine for himself what is the best u he can not it to: the roots of clover are the most important . faetor in the fertilizing value of the soil, because their dried weight considerably exceeds that of the dried weight ol the top; and also because they are richer in food ele ments than the tops."

This can be rendered avail able in two or three ways, of which we will write directly. The next element is ammonia, which is pres ent in fresh bones t the amount of four per cent and more. a.) The first and quickest plan is to burn the bones in a log-heap and crush them to ptjwder with heavy pestle, nsing ashes altogether.

It is coetemplated that the Gov ernor of Virginia will join thePres- ident when going to Atlanta and escort him through theo'.d Domin ion, and that the ( io vernor of North Carolina will meet Inm at our northern border and accompany him as far as South Carolina, where the Governor of that State will join him and escort him through South Carolina to Georgia, where the Governor of Unit State will attend him. It is indeed tit and proper for such attention and respect to be paid the President of the Cnited States, and the courtesty will be more appropriately rendered since the honored guest is the honest, fearless and independent Cleve land. But this exhibition of re spect is iu striking contrast with the treatment accorded to r esi dent Washington by Governor Sam Adams, of Massachusetts, when Washington visited Boston. As the President approached that city it was understood that the Governor of Massachusetts would not '-all on him, on the alleged ground that the Governor of Massachusetts being within the State held the higher rank and the President must first pay his respects to him. Washing ton, if we jecollect aright, become very hot about the matter, and after reaching his headquarters, had word conveyed to Gov. Adams that he was in town, and the next morning Adams proposed to call, but Washington treated him cav- alierly and soon left Boston. But aitnougu Attains lam stress on the the alleged superiority over the President of a Governor iu his own commonwealth yet his dislike of Washington doubtless had much to do with his course at the time. ; Some of the ultra republicans those who opposed the Constitu tion looked with great disfavor on ; ashington, who warmly j advo cated its adoption, and among these ! was Sam Adams.

Short TaIU Willi Farmers on Farm Topic. FAI.T. oAT.S WHEAT. If one proposes to sow oats this autumn it is none too early to pre pare tor it. In the first place prop er seed must be procured. It is of first importance to sow seed from crops which have been continuous ly seeded down in the fall for several years, Seed from spring oats is not suitable for fall sowing. There is no question that plants acquire a certain adaptation to seasons and circumstances. Tall sown oats get the habit of growing through a longer period of time of tillering more; of resisting cold better. Those plants that are feeble or unable to stand severe cold get killed those with opposite quali ties survive and transmit their characteristics to their progeny. Thus a race of winter oats become established. In like manner spring oats acquire the babit of maturing in a shorter period of time, of with standing hot weather just the re verse of the fall oat. Now if fall grown seed are sown in the spring, and spring grown seed are sown in the fall, all these acquired habits become upset : or else no habits are formed, and plants uusuited to either fall or spring sowings the result. Whilst the oat is not as resi.-teut of cold as some other grains, there are varieties of oats which with stand cold better than others. What is known in upper Georgia, the "winter grazing" oat, will cer tainly stand cold better than the red rust-proof. We have tested this to our entire sal isfaciiou. Now it is altogether probable that what has been done either accidentally or by design in the case of winter grazing oat, may be done bo intelli gent procedure in the case of other varieties. By purposely sowing seed of the rust-proof, which has survived our coldest winters, con- tinuously year after year for many years, it is extremely probable that a cold enduring strain of that va riety may be established also. We noticed on our own farm, bunches here and there of rust proof oats, which survived the cold of the winter of 1885 and '80 one of the most disastrous winters to fall oats we have ever known. The same may be seen to a greater or less extent every winter when the oat crop is killed out. Now, why should not these hardy plants transmit their hardiness to their posterity ! We believe they can, and we urge upon tbe reader to test the point of trial. Fall oats have oeen Kineu so Dauiy 01 late vears farmers have become discouraged about sowing them, but the crop is too valuable in itself, and fits too nicely in our rotation of crops, to be abandoned without serions, de uigerous stermined and intelligent efforr to perpetuate it. Bet us try to breed up a strain of rust-proof oa's. Aside from sowing proper seed, something may be done to help the oat to withstand cold. One of our most intelligent and successful far mers in an adjacent county, informs us, that oats to which stable manure has been applied, are rarely or never killed by cold. If the seed are drilled in, so that the plants are a little below the general surface, they are somewhat protected from the cold winds, and may thus sur vive when others perish. Cold wiuds, unquestionably, intensify the effects of cold fields protected on the north and west sides by belts of timber especially old field pines, are, therefore, best suited for the crop. Rolling land, just as it thaws, after heavy freezes, would counteract the disastrous effects of , 'heaving." Soils that are least heaved by frost, should be selected for this crop. These are points which might well be looked alter, while seeding up winter oats. In all cases sow early, that the plants may get well rooted before frost if too forward graze a little. Manure enough to make strong and vigor ous plants, but heavy doses of ammoniated fertilizers in the fall are not advisable. They will make te plants too sappy and unfit them for resisting cold. They can be applietl as top dressing in the spring if the crop needs them. Plans and preparations lor a wheat crop are also now in order. If not occupied by auother crop, the land should be broken several times between this and seeding time. "ne good plowing, with several harrowings with disc or acme harrow will suffice. The surface soil should be in the finest tilth for this crop, and if the soil, after it has been-broken is settled by rain so much the better. Only keep the surface well pulverized. W.

The newspapers reported the following fatal cases, all of winch oceured during the first week of April, and all from a similar t-ause: In New York, a young man who was in training to enter the inter collegiate sports, died from heart disease, superinduced by tiie strain of excessive running: In Chicago, another lad was at tacked with hemorrhage while pole vaultiug, and died after a day's ill ness: In Philadelphia, a student of the the Pennsylvania I "ni versify died from the effects of too protacted strain iu rowing: and In Bet hlehcm.a student of Lehigh I'niversity was killetl by the break ing of a pole over which he was j umping. The newspapers al.-o contained accounts of three other accidents to young men while training for atheletie exhibitions, by which tiny were lamed or disfigured for life. Now it would be folly to base on such accidents as these a verdict against all athletic sports. But there is as mnch difference between the athletic exercises which strengthen the muscles, develop the chest and conduce to heallh and cheerfulness, and the feats, both useless and dangerous, which are undertaken simply for display, as there is between a canter on a safe horse in the sunshine, and the mad excitement of a race ground. Parents and college faculties should note the difference, and put a limit on the exhibitions on these athletic sport da s. It is not only the boys, however, who are ready to sacrifice them selves on the altar of vanity. There is a strong dislike among young girls to any tendency to stoutness. Tight-lacing, fortunately, is out of fashion. But girls sometimes diet themselves excessively to reduce the figure to the desired sym metry. Self-conceit is always dangerous to the mind, but in these cases it is actual murder to the body. Don't Complain. A country merchant was one day returning from maiket. lie was on horse back, and behind his saddle was a valise filled with money. The rain fell with violence, and the good old man was wet to the skin. At this time he was quite vexed, and mur mured because God had given him such hard weather for his journey. He soon reached the border of a thick forest. What was his terror on beholding on one side of the road a robber, who, with levelled gun, was aiming at him and at tempting to fire! But the powder being wet with the rain the gun did not go off. and the merchant giving spurs to his horse, fortunate ly had tiruejto escape. lAssoonashe found himself-safe, he said to him- self: "How wrong was 1 not to en dure the rain patiently, as sent by uulCLi-H-iiiint' provjdeilce! if the weather had been dry and fair I should not probably have been alive at this hour.
