an emergency, such land could be
utilized for an oat crop.
Again the oat has great loraging
power ability to get food from
soils where other cereal plants
oonld not. Hence it will grow on
poorer soils than most other grain
crops, and its lot has been to be as
signed to poorer fields. One reason
is it call for less nitrogen than
other grain crops. Lxpenments 1

j of oats, rye and wheat, call for res-,
pectively 50, 64 and 84 pounds of

cient supply has been previously
furnished a crop, a top dressing of
50 or 75 pounds of nitrate of soda
in the spring helps the crop won
derfully. Phosphate is indispensable to the
oat. Its influence is specially shown
in the increased production of
grain. A liberal dose of phosphate
with a moderate one of nitrogenous
matter meets the requirement of
this crop. Two hundred pounds
each of acid phosphate and cotton
seed meal per acre would make a
good ratio for an oat crop.
The oat crop needs a large quan
tity of water for its full develop
ment. Experiments have shown
that, other things being equal, the
crop increases up to the point
where 00 to SG per cent of ;ls much
: water as the soil can hold is pres i
ent. This explains the peculiar
adaptation of bottom lands to this i
crop; also, how short the crop is in
dry springs, on uplands. This ex-,

strongest points of the fall sown
crop, it explains also in part why
retainer and absorber of moisture.
Would it not be well to sow down
in oats a good slice of the bottom
land on every larm. As a rule such
lands have been run a long time in
com and need a change.
'or, let ns see what useful de
ductions oan be drawn from above,

France Does ot Want War Yet.
Paris, Sept. 4. A foreign diplo-
mat, inendly to trench interests.
though representing his country at Dublin Castle today. There wore pros
Berlin, has been interviewed by the ent Lord Lieutenant PSaron Ashbourne.
Figaro as to toe relations now
existing between the governments
af Paris and Herliu. lie said :
"The attitude of Germany to
wards Prance is the same today as
it was yesterday and as it will be
tomorrow if the life of the octo
genarian Kaiser is still further pro
longed and it the invalided Bis
marck still remains in tho land of
the living. The official lelations
between the two countries are of
course good, but they are not cor
dial. Care is taken not to tread on
each other's corns, and when that
. evil hour occurs vociferous 'beg
pardons' are heard on every side.
Unfortunately this friction is in
cessantly taking place owing to
the action of the frontier officials
of both Germany and Prance: and
after awhile some one will wake up
and announce that a beg pardon is
no recompense for down trodden
corns. Then there will arise an in
terminable correspondence which
will lead to nothing but recrimi
nations from both sides.
"The gentlemen of Wilhelm
strasse (German Poreign Oflice; are
noted lor their economy in the use
of ink. Yet hardly a day passes
that M. Ileibette. the Prench Am
bassador, does not receive an
official inquiry as to something
which happened here or about
somebody who didn't do something
to somebody somewhere else. The
elder members of the Diplomatic
Corps in Berlin, we who know
Bismarck's complicated character,
feel convinced that one of the these
days some little incident like the
Svunaebelo affair will bring about
a war : and the task of M. fler
beette at Berlin is, in my opinion,
to postpone that declaration of
war as long as possible. I believe
that he will for sometime meet w ith
success, and I have not the slight
est fear of a conflict arising at any
early date. Both the Kaiser and
the Prince Imperial are very sick
men, and not in the least desirous
of war. Every move that Bismarck
makes or causes to be made on the
European chessboard is directed
against Prance. To such an extent
has he exaggerated at Berlin the
military preparations in Prance
that there are many millions of
people in Germany who today be
lieve that across the border, in the
vicinity of INancv, there are thou
sands and thousands of Turcos,
Zouaves and Chasseurs Tonkinois
, . ?
ready to pounce upon Germany.
The diplomat concluded by
stating that Germany alone is re
sponsible for the lrontier lriction,
and that if such a cool, prudent
man as M. Ilerbette did not repre-:
sent Prance in Berlin, the history
of the war pour la revanche would
already have been written. N. Y.

Senator Vcorhees on Uooiu-.
Senator Voorhees. of Indiana,
who was in Kansas City recently,
being asked as to politics, paid his
compliments to Blaine and Tuttle
as follows: "It is difficult to fore
cast the political situation with any
degree of accuracy. To my mind
it is pretty rUain that Blaine, if he
wants it, can have the nomination
of the next Republican convention.
The little booms for Sherman and
other aspirants always boom up
just before the convention meets
only to demonstrate how weak and
shallow their claims are. The ac
tion of the Pennsylvania State con
vention has undoubtedly struck
the keynote of the Republican shib
boleths for the next campaign. The
rebel Hag incident and the iulant
industry argument will be the
stock-in-trade of the campaign ora
tors. By the way, speaking of the
rlag incident reminds me of the
man who hael a neighbor who used
to euter his barn at all times and
borrow his horse. He used the
horse so much that lie thought he
had a right to it superior to that of
the owner. The accommodating
owner grew tireel of maintaining
the beast for the benefit of his
neighbor, and one night went over
tQ tuat gentleman's house to get
lue 'J"'"- u,eL
uciuuui suuiSuu in iuuu,

ing: -1 know the horse is yours,
but it's very impolite of you nosing
arounel my house in the night.
Come in the daytime and ask ior
the horse, and perhaps I will let
you have it.' Gen. Tuttle thinks it
very impolite of the President to
issue an ouler for the return of the
flags, but it would be perfectly
proper if Congress should grant it
on the plaintive reepuests of the
various Southern States. These
men, like Tuttle, are not abreast of
the times, anel their utterances are
of no significance. The adminis
tration of Cleveland has been a
pronounced success. With Cleve
lanel at the head of the Democratic
ticket he will in all probability
be put there success is assured."

A o. ,v a::d Nnel Plan.
' t..te I-:::ui gration Agent J. T. Patrick
h s 1 ; ,u d and adopted a new plan
which will prove- a uvt of the progres
sive calibre of any section in which it is
pre-ente 1. It is ge-nerally understood
that manufactories add materially to

They will not. however, as a rule, in
manj- sections offer to invest money in
order to secure them, on the ground
that they have no experience in euch
business and fear a total loss of the in
vestment: but many profess to be will
ing to give certain amounts to any com
pany that will come among them and
put up a factory.
Mr. Patrick is in almost daily corres
pondence with factory men and capital
ists who desire to come to this State to
make investments, but the capitalits
naturally want some encourageme-nt
and evidence of good will. Mr. Pat
rick's plan is to determine by enquiry
what kind of factory would be most
profitable in a certain place, if tho citi
zens want the factory, and if bo how
much they want it. He is haying pre
pared blank forms for this purpose
which may be explained as follows: It
has been determined that is a good
location for a cotton factory. The citi
zens of have declared thev would
like a factory in their town, but they do
not wish to invest lare amounts in one
as they know nothing about the busi
ness, but some are willing to make do
nations in order that the factory may be
established in the town. The form seta
forth that the citizens of such town will
give one-half acre of land for the site I
of the factory and will also give certain i
amounts in money each, ranging from
s'10 00 to any amount. They eubscribo i
their names and write down the amounts 1
they propose to give. This list is re
turned to Mr. Patrick, who submits it
to some company seeking investment 1
and points out tho inducements offered
by the town of . Of course cot
ton factories would not be paying in- i
Hitutions in every place, but a different
kind of factory might be badly needed :
in some town, a canning factory in '
another, a spoke and handle factory in
another, an iron foundry in another,
and so on. For every industry of this
and many other kinds, competent men
are seeking locations. With the lists
which Mr. Patrick proposes to make up.
he can show anybody a desirable field
for any manufacturing enterprise and
show jut what kind of a reception and
how much encouragement will be given
to t!u- enterprise. He is in correspon
dence with parties who desire such in
foninti n .and who will act on obtain
ing it. News and observer.

from his visit to the
President at Oak View, and was seen
by a reporter of the Associated Press.
When asked whether the tariff and a
reduction of tho revenue had been dis
cussed by the President and himself
and Secretary Fairchild and Mr. Car
lisle, :md whether any bill had been
agreed upon, he said that this subject, i
as well as oiher public matters, had
been talked about, and that while there
was no deference of opinion among the ;
gentlemen present as to the necessity '
for an early reduction of the revenues:
and taxation, no measure for that pur- i
pose had been agreed upon, and none
would be without consultation with the
members belonging to the majority in 1
the House of Representatives. It was :
th opinion of all that there ought to be '
a very considerable reduction at the
earliest possible date after the meeting
of .Congress, but the manner in which
tho reduction should be made was con- j
sidered only in a general way and no
details were agreed upon. This, he
said, was all that could bo said about!
