Wheat should be seeded down as
qnickly as possible, except towards
the gulf and Atlantic borders. In
, these more southerly localities sow

which they are covered. Both of,
these ends are reached better by
drilling machines than by the ordi
nary hand sowing and plowing or
harrowing it. A good machine
will space the .seed properly. It
can be adjusted to sow a certain
amount of seed to an acre. It will
also put the seed in the ground at
a jierfectly uniform depth. This
should be from one to one and a
half inches: never over two inches.
At greater depths the seed will
come up, and ordinary observation
would not defect any difference,
perhaps, in the crop, but careful
and repeated experiments have
shown that when planted deep the
yield is smailer. The regular
spacing of the seed is of equal
importance. If possible each plaut
ought to have exactly the same
amount of soil, air and light. How
seldom, or never, is this attained
from ordinary hand sowing. If
one ia partial to broadcasting, by
all means get a broadcast sower.
With proper care and adjustment
these can be made to do very nice
work, and do it rapidly. We must
make up for the poverty of our
exhausted land, for our less man
ageable labor, aud for the sharp
competition of these latter days,
by nicer and more thorough work.
The time has come when we must
quit sliiMshod, belter skelter ways.
Extremes are not often to be
recommended, but in the case of
wheat they are in one respect. The
crop is so uncertain and unreliable
to oar climate that it is best to sow
a good breadth of ordinary land
without manuring it, else sow a
very lew acres manured very
heavily the extensive or the in
tensive. Objection to the first is
the amount of seed and of labor
requfred. Loth may be economised.
This land does not call for heavy
seeding three pecks per acre will
answer. On corn or cotton land
cat up and beat down the stalks
and cover seed with disc harrow
without previous breaking. One
hand and two horses can put in six
or more acres a day. The roller
1 following will go over the same
ground in a day. Land well culti
vated through the summer does not
' require additional breaking for an
i ordinary wheat crop. It has about
the right compactness of which we
spoke above, and needs only the
surface stirring which the harrow
will give. Ueavy yields per acre
are not to be expected under such
methods, but as the outlay is small
and land abundant, the profits may
be as great and the risk no greater
than under the opposite method.
When one has high, well drained
land adapted to wheat, it may be
, more profitable perhaps to break
deep, manure heavily aud prepare
thoroughly and sow only a few
acres. The thorough preparation
and high manuring are expected to
l give the crop such vigor as to
enable it to withstand adverse
circumstances aud this they will
do to a certain extent. Under
such treatment wheat will make a
partial crop, when under adverse
seasons, that which is un manured
I would make a total failure. The
' intensive method saves seed to
some extent, labor also increases
expenditure on manure account.
It one contemplates liming his
land, the present is a good time to
make the application. The effects
of lime are not appreciable for some
' months after it is applied. For
sumiiu-r crops it should Iv a j 1 1 i e 1
in autumn or early winter, lur fall
crops in spring or early summer.
As lime tends ut' itself to .-ink down
in the soil, it shouM never be
plowed in. but in ply sea! t erod on
the surface. In our leT, dry
climate moderate doses only ale to
be reeom tneia led Five t" ten
bushels per acre is ample. The
best form in w Ir.oh to use it is a
pond marl. Tweiitv to forty bushels
per acre of a rich mail might be
applied. The next best form of
lime 1- the a;r--iaked. of this live
to ten bti-.iiel per ac:e will be
enough. I'nnspiii'os contain a
good deal of lime, enough peihaps
lor ordinary crops w hen they ;)re
liberally applied. Direct applica
tions of lime are generally made,
not to supply plant-fond, but as an
amendment to the soil, to develop
its hidden iesotirces. Heavy clays
and lighter soils that are rilled with
vegetable matter are most benefitted
by it. As a rule also, regions
futiicst north in the cotton belt
are more likely to receive
from liming than those
south. Try an application
on a small scale, and note

Washington, October 2-1. The
President entered his private office
this morning at the usual hour, aud
assumed his official duties with re
newed vigor and a determination
to attend strictly to busiuess from
now until the Christmas holidays.
There was not a very large accumu
lation of private correspondence
upon his table, as his absence from
the city was well known to his per
sonal friends, and those official
communications which were ad-'
dressed to him he would not have
been troubled with had he been at
home. The oflice-seekers and po
litical visitors were quite consider
ate today and kindly remained
away from the White House,
doubtless preparing to call the
President's attention to "that little
matter after he shall have fully
recovered from the fatigue of his
recent trip. Secretary- Bayard,
Commissioner of Agriculture Cole
man, Commissioner of Internal Rev
enue Miller, Commissioner of Pen
sions Black, aud several other bu
reau officers called and paid their
respects during the day. About 3
o'clock in the afternoon Mrs. Cleve

went out upon a shopping expe

LOOK. Senator Gorman visited several
of the departments today, aud
upon every side he was questioned
as to the probable result of the
coming election in Baltimore. He
replied good naturedly and at the
same time confidently that the
regular democrat party would be
successful in spite of the claims of
the opposition. It was suggested
bv a prominent official that the
New lork press will naruiy poke
Us nose into Baltimore affairs any

further, in view of the political
trouble it is having in front of its

CANADA'S CHINESE TAX.
The complaint agaiust the Cana-'
dian custom officers by Moy Woog,
a naturalized citizen of the coun- j
try. has been returned by the State
Department for verification by'
oath. At the department it is said
that nothing can be done in the
case. The treatment received by !
the Chinaman was not a violation
of treaty obligations. Canada has
a law requiring a tax of 50 per'
capita on all Chinamen entering the
dominion. The tax was regarded
as prohibitory, or at least a certain
means to keep out of the country
pauper Chinese. The laws of the
United States covering this matter
are much more severe than those
of Canada. With ns Chinamen are
absolutely restricted from crossing
the border, no matter how long they
have been denizens of Canada.
When they apply for admission to
the States at the custom houses
along the border they are uncere
moniously bundled back to their
native country.

A Democrat's Yien s,
Li'iTDK JoI'kxal I have before me
your article of Sunday last on the return
of the delegates from Raleuh, in which
ycu say the Governor intends to turn
the State over to his successor as he re
ceived it. We beg leave to differ with
you. If you had been one of the com
mittee you would have been convinced
that the Governor has a policy for this
road, or to speak plainer, there is a deal
on foot to turn this road oyer to the
W. & YV . as soon as it i newly ironed to
Goldsboro. Do not understand that the
Governor said it in so many words, but
from hearing him express himself as
fully as he did, the writer came to that
conclusion, and other members of the
committee tvere of the same opinion.
The Governor would not state what
disposition he pioposes to make of this
road, which ij proof positive to the
writer he fears, and to make it stronger,
knows, this disposition he proposes to
make will not suit the parties along the
line of ths road, nor will it be to the
advantage of the county stock. You
eay his predecessor never extended the
road. etc.. and why should he'.' The
writer should think any Governor of a
State would like for historians, when
they come to chronicle the time he was
. Governor, to be able to point to one act
section, and not be compelled to simply
state; 'Governor was elected in
4.
wa3 inaugurated and served his
term." You suggest that the people
remain quiet until the nest election.
This is a matter we can not let rest.
The future cf this city and the welfare
of all the counties bordering on both
founds, depend on this extension. We
are com pletely shut off at this time by
the R. ec D. and W. & W. at Goldsboro.
We can not expect any prosperity as
long as this condition remains, and if
the Governor can turn us over to the
YV. & W. they wild use us as a feeder
and nothing more. We should agitate
this question in and out of season, and
keep hammering until we succeed, and
if wecannotaccomplishthe connection
before the comiDg election, we should
know if the future Governor favors our
proposition. We can not afford to take
chances again, as the railroads of the
State have become so powerful that the
Governors fear to go contrary to their
wishes, especially if they wish to go to
Congress from districts through which
the associate riilroad runs.

When the Pender county jagwump'.
Bone Taylor and Wiley Stokes, were
arrested -omelime ago for illicit dis
tilling in the Holly Shelter section of
that county, the revenue raiders sized
with other property a mule which it
was claimv .1 had been used by the
prisoners in hauling corn meal from
this city to the stills. The mule? re
mained in charge of an officer iu Pen
der, and recently parties sought to ob
tain possession of it tbrcueh a warrant
for "claim and delivery . " but the mule
was sent to this city. The papers were
then sent to Sheriff Manning to serve,
but with all his deputies searching high
and low, up to yesterday they had been
unable to find th-.t mule. Indeed, it is
said that the mule in quet-ti has im
proved si. greatly in personal appear
ance and in morals since h-1 came into
the possession of l lie government, that
it is doubtful if his own mother would
know him Wilcicgtoa Star.
