tributor to trade journals arid author
of "The Queen Cotton Seed Series
of Economic Tracts," is out irr a
short paper in the New York Forum,
for September, in which he enters a
plea in behalf of the "least ol all
seeds" in public estimation in the
past. It was regarded all over the
south as Ot but little value, fit for
manuring purposes and for nothing
else. ' : , -.
Mr Johnson thinks the signs indir
Cate that this "least ol ail seeds" is
destined to become "the greatest o!
all." It has gained favor and im
portance "by a hard 'and constant
struggle against ignorance and preju
dice." He says that it was long re
garded "as an impertinent by-procl-uct
interfereing with the markets for
the cereals." If his figures are cor
red then the world has indeed
gained a most important food prod
uct. We must copy at some length
Irora his paper as it is ol startling in
terest and will attract the attention ol
all cotton planters and wheat grow
ers. In fact all who need food must
be interested more or less. He com-!
pares wheat and cotton seed thus :
Wheat Protein, 11.87; Carbohy
drates 73.69; fat 2.oq; value $1.00.
Cotton seed Protein, 1757; car
bohydrates, 10.82; fat 20.19; value
1 $1.39. , .
The above gives the number of
pounds of food components and the
analytical value of 1 00 pounds each
of wheat and cotton seed, according
to the methods in use by the agricul
tural exDeriment stations. It shows
the surprising fact that, pound for
pound, cotton seed has a greater in
trinsic value than wheat. Neither is
the bulk, of the cotton seed crop by
any means insignificant as compared
with wheat. There are raised in the
southern states alone five-sevenths as
many bushels ot cotton seed as there
are raised bushels; of wheat in the
whole United Slates.
In spite of all the criticisms, just
and unjust, of the .southern agricul
! tural methods, the yield per year in
bushels ol cotton seed, over and
above the fibre, is greater than the
yield of wheat per' acre; and it is in
creasing. The reports of the United
States department of agriculture for
the .season of 1S97 98, the latest ob
tainable when those calculations were
made, place the average yield per
acre cf cotton seed jat 14.9 bushel
as against I
eventh avenues this morning. Five
firemen were overcome. The loss- is
estimated at a million dollars.
