The North Carolina College of Agri
culture has sent out a warning advis
ing farmers not to buy the fertilizer
formulas that are being extensively
advertised and sold. It says that la
the first place, most of the formulas
are of no value, and in the second place
that the agricultural colleges are al
ways ready to supply the very best
formulas free. It then publishes a
formula that had been purchased of
one of these agents for 5. It says:
One ton of the "fertilizer" would be
made up as follows:
558 lbs. Stable manure.
8 lbs. Potash.
4 lbs. Nitrate of soda.
4 lbs. "Copperas."
12 lbs. Muriate of ammonia.
5 lbs. "Phosphate add."
98 lbs. Warm water.
81 lbs. Lime.
927 lbs. New dirt.
243 lbs. Ashes.
60 lbs. Salt
2,000 lbs. Total.
Some of these ingredients call for
The substance acid phosphate, or su
perphosphate. Is in common use for,
fertilizing purposes, and phosphoric
acid is also known to the chemist, but
there Is no such substance as "phos
phate acid," and consequently, it Is im
possible for the farmer to purchase it
Muriate of ammonia Is not used for
fertilizing purposes and Is not li
censed for sale in the state for such
purposes. The only portion of it which
is of value to plants Is nitrogen, and
it can be obtained more cheaply In the
form of sulphate of ammonia, nitrate
of soda, or organic substances. The di
rections for making "Home Fertilizer"
are .to mix the chemicals with warm
water. Under these circumstances the
ammonia will be set free by the potash
and be lost
Copperas has been used upon experi
mental plots and found to be of no
value in promoting plant growth.
Nitrate of Soda Is valuable to plants
when enough Is used. In the "Home
Fertilizer" only four pounds per' ton
of compost are used, and this quantity
is too small to be of any value. The
nitrogen In four pounds of nitrate of
soda would be furnished by about three
dead cats and three dead cats to the
acre would not help the plants very
Commercial potash Is a mixture of
potassium carbonate, caustic potash
and caustic soda. It Is not used for
fertilizing purposes and is not licensed
for sale for such purposes. It is ob
jectionable because, on account of Its
caustic properties, it would tend to
set ammonia free, and because the
fertilizing element which it furnishes
can be obtained more cheaply from the
potash salts which are found upon the
market The actual potash in four
pounds of commercial potash could be
obtained from one bushel of ashes.
Lime is of value on some soils, but
when used it is best to apply it di
rectly to the soil at the rate of one ton
or more per acre. In the compost heap
it sometimes aids and sometimes
checks fermentation. Its value in the
compost heap is questionable, and it
Is not recommended for such use by
the leading authorities.
Salt does not furnish any element
which is needed by the plant and It Is
of no value in the compost heap. Many
years ago It was used In the compost
heap with lime, but it is no longer used
in that way, as it Is considered to ba
of no benefit
Nearly one-half of a ton of "Home
Fertilizer" is new dirt The only ob
ject in using new dirt in a compost
heap is to catch any ammonia which
might otherwise be lost For this pur
pose small quantities are sufficient
When large quantities of new dirt are
used the fertilizing strength of the
compost is weakened and a large
amount of unnecessary labor In hand
ling is Involved.
The Arrlcaltvral Resource of Alaska.
In his report of work done by agents
of the Department in Alaska, the Sec
retary of Agriculture, states that head
quarters have been established in a
building erected for the purpose in
bitka. A station has been located
at Kenai, Cooks Inlet and reser
vations of land for experimental
work, have been made on ' the
Yukon. The experiments thus far
made have consisted largely in grow
ing, different varieties of cereals, for
age plants, flax, and 'vegetables. Ex
periments in making and storing silage
and in making hay from native grasses
have been tried to a limited extent
The correction of the acidity of new
land with lime has been successfully
tried. Sufficient evidence has been ob
tained to show definitely that a con
siderable variety of vegetables can be
successfully grown in different parts
of Alaska. It has also been shown
that in southeastern Alaska and in
Cooks Inlet oats, barley, buckwheat
and spring wheat will mature with
careful culture and that the failure of
many attempts to grow crops in Alas
ka has been due to the natural acidity
of the soil and the lack of drainage.
When these difficulties are removed by
proper treatment the land is fertile and
productive. Prof. Georgeson, who has
investigated the Yukon valley, is very
favorably impressed with its agricul
tural possibilities. He found large'
areas of excellent agricultural land and
in the Dawson Chamber of Commerce
he found fine specimens of wheat bar
ley and oats raised last year. In July
at the time he visited the valley, he
did not find any snow even on the
highest mountains. Previous to his
visit the thermometer had twice rec
orded a temperature of 96 degrees. In
answer to criticisms that have been
made of the work of the Department
in Alaska, the secretary says: The
problem which the department has un
dertaken to work out is to determine
whether a sufficient agriculture and
horticulture can be developed in Alas
ka to form an important subsidiary
industry to aid in the permanent de
velopment of mining, fisheries and
lumbering which will undoubtedly be
the leading Industries of this region.
If all the food supplies of the popula
tion engaged In these industries must
be transported from, the United States
and Canada, it is evident that the de
velopment of Alaska will be , much
slower and uncertain than If a con
siderable. portion of these supplies can
be produced in the territory.
The question of what crops to grow
in the orchard is constantly being dis
cussed, but the tendency of the dis
cussions Is to recommend that no ex

grass and other aod grasses should be
avoided, as they deprlre the roots of
the trees not only of food, but of nec
essary moisture. This Is a great factor
in a Ay season. Wo believe that the
trend of public opinion Is In the right
The farmers that did not clean up
tbelr orchards in the fall before the
snow came should see to It that the
work is not neglected In the spring.
It should be begun as soon as the snow
is off the ground. All the dead leaves
and old twigs and other burnable rub
bish should be raked up and burned.
The clumps of grass in the fence cor
ners should be disposed of in the same
manner. This is for the sake of de
stroying not only the eggs of insects
but also the spores of destructive
fungi, which live over on the fallen
leaves and twigs. The latest investi
gations show that many of our worst
fungous pests are carried over from
year to year on the rubbish under the
trees. This to some degree accounts
for the non-success of spraying Some
times reported. With a thorough
cleaning up of the orchard -the spray

The treatment of bovine distemper

be avoided. The animal should havt

It is well to open the bowels at the
onset of the disease with one pound o;
common salts (magnesium sulphate).
If the extremities are swollen, a doge
of two ounces of nitrate of potash,
given as a drench twice a day, often
relieves the trouble, and at. the same
time helps to lower the temperature.
Where the temperature is very high
and does not seem to be affected by
the nitrate of potash, quinine may be
given in drachm doses two or three
times a day, dissolved In a little alco
hol and given as a drench. When the
animal is run down, sulphate of iron,
two drachms, powdered nux vomica,
one drachm, and powdered gentian,
two drachms, given in a little corn
meal night and morning, tend to build
the animal up.
If the breathing is difficult frequent
inhalations of steam containing a little
turpentine or tar as a rule work very
nicely. When the nervous symptoms
are severe, bromide of potash, four
drachms, and tincture of cannabis in
dica, one ounce, given every three
hours, often quiet the animal. A two
drachm dose of iodide of potash, night
and morning, given either by itself or
with the preceding powder, has an ex

it is well to blister the chest with a

quotes from some experiments of Prof.
E. S. Golf as follows: When potatoes
are placed for a few minutes in brine
the lightest or those of poorest quali
ty and most deficient in starch rise to
the top. By this method It is an easy
matter with the aid of a hydrometer to
determine the amount of starch and
hence the quality of the potatoes. The
author planted the light, the medium
and the heavy potatoes as indicated by
the brine test for two years in succes
sion, and, unlike European investiga
tors, noted no improvement in the
quality of the crops as a result of this
selection. He found that tubers grow
ing nearest the surface were of lowest
specific gravity or poorest quality, and
that the specific gravity increased with
the depth at which the potato grew.
This he ascribes to the cooler tempera
ture at which the tuber grew found
at greater depths. He also found that
potatoes grown in level culture, with
the consequent lower temperature
within the soil, had a greater specific
gravity than those grown in hills.

The Unltsd States DepartsMnt ef
Agricnltnre has mndcrtaksn a gssd
work in the securing for experimental
purposes the grasses that grow wild in
this country. F. Lamson-Scribner, ag
rostologlst ot the Department of. Agri
culture, summarizes thus the work thai
has been already done along this Una.
According to the provisions of the act
of congress, making appropriations for
the Department of Agriculture for the
fiscal year 1901, this division was di
rected to purchase and collect seeds
and specimens of valuable economic
srasses and forage plants, to be distrib
uted to the various experiment stations
under the direction of the Secretary
ot Agriculture, to ascertain their adapt
ability to the various soils and climates
of the United States. In order to carry
out this direction, plans were made
early In the season to undertake the
work with the beginning of the fiscal
rear. Mr. C. L. Shear, an assistant In
:he division, was put in charge of the
eed and field work, and immediately
after July 1 he began work in the field,
and several agents were employed to
vork with him during the collecting
eason. He was verbally instructed to
nake the collection ot seeds of valu
ible native grasses and forage plants
che leading feature of his field work.
There are many native grasses and
'orage plants of great economic value
;hat have never yet been Introduced
nto cultivation. This is especially true
if the grasses of the great cattle ranges
f the West, which formerly grew In.
uch abundance and which through
over-stccking and mismanagement have
row become almost extinct In the
iropagatlon and cultivation of these
.pedes, native to the soil and already
acclimated, lies the hope of the ranch
nan and the herder for restoring to
heir former carrying capacity the now
lepleted ranges and pastures. Partlcu
ar effort has been directed to securing
n quantity seeds of these wild range
grasses; also those of probable value
n the South for winter pasturage,
.hose likely to prove good meadow
grasses for high altitudes and those
especially adapted .to binding shifting
,ands, for which there is so much de
mand. Seeds of a few native grasses
jf highly economic importance have
jeen obtained by purchase from parties
living in the remote regions where
:hey grow. A number of varieties were
obtained in this way from the vicinity
jf Silver City, New Mexico. In all thl3
work it not infrequently happened that
long and tedious Journeys had to be
made to regions inaccessible to stock
oefore grasses In seed could be found,
and the collection was made by hand.
ome four tons of seed of about one
aundred and thirty varieties of grasses
and forage plants were thus gathered,
che quantities in each case varying
irom one to five hundred 'pounds.
Never before has so large an amount
of native seeds been collected by the
How t Pack Apples.
It is very essential that apples should
be properly prepared for market In
order that the best results may be ob
tained, and It Is with this end In view
that the following suggestions are sub
mitted: Country shippers and packers of ap
ples should make It a point to pack
their fruit honestly; that Is, have the
fruit run alike all through the barrel.
Do not endeavor to cause deception by
placing good, sound, large fruit on the
top and bottom of the barrel, and fill
in the middle wun a 101 oi suanj,
wormy and decayed fruit. It does not
pay. The deception Is easily detected
upon investigation, and merchants do
not care to have fraud practiced upon
them, neither do they care to practice
it upon their customers.
Full regulation-sized barrels should
be used. Take the barrel, one head
out, nail the hoops, and break off the
ends of the nails at the inside; place
a layer or tier of apples, good and uni
form sizes, 'smooth, bright healthy, as
closely as possible, stem downward,
on the lower end, then fill up, a basket
full at a time, throwing out small
wormy, gnarly and windfall apples,
and shaking the barrel well after each
deposit until it is full two lnchc3 above
the rim; place the head squarely on
the apples, and with a screw or lever
press force It into place and nail se
curely. Turn over the barrel and
mark name of apple with red or black
lead, or stencil. Bear in mind that,
to be shipped safely, fruit must be
packed tight, to prevent rattling or
In shipping apples the first of the
season early varieties shippers
should see that openings are cut on
the side of the barrels and also In both
ends, to admit of free circulation of
air, which will greatly help to bring
apples through in good condition dur
ing warm weather.

A crisis in the wool market Is re
ported from France, where more than
a dozen firms that were big buyers of
wool have suspended payment During
the last two years there has been great
fluctuation in the price of wool, and
during the last year the price has
been steadily declining. This has had
the effect of leaving the big handlers
stranded. The losses through the fall
of prices is reported to be in the neigh
borhood of $15,000,000.
In the beginning of 1898 combed
wool on time wa3 quoted at 77 cents
per kilogram. This price rose steadily
until there was an increase of 17 cents
in twelve months. The year 1899
opened with a strong, rising market,
and in December, 1899, the highest
price ($1.20) was reached. These two
years were prosperous cnes to all wool
merchants, but 1900 opened with a fall
ing market and during the last eight
months wool has fallen in price more
than 57 cents per kilogram. On Aug
ust 30 there were no purchases at 67
cents per kilogram.
The constant rise in the price of
high-grade wools has been acccuated
for by the dearth of merino sheep in
Australia and Buenos Ayres, where the
cross breeds seem to be driving high
grade wool out of the market Pessi
