VoMrC dAGRICULTURAt . Tobacco Culture. Oaur advice to the tobacco.grower I s that as soon a, the plant is well estab Ilsled in its new home the soil should be loosened around the plants with the hoe if this is not done the soil forms a hard crust on the top that often cuts the plant off a; it grows. Care should be used not to break the plant loose. Tobseeo should be cultivated every eight or at most every ten days until too large to get through between the arow without breaking the leaves too much. I think the more this crop is workod, if done properly and at the right time. the heavier and finer the tobaccm Tobacco seems to be one of the crops that does best if hoed a great deal, and might be almost termed a hoed crop. From my experience in cultivating tobacco I find there is a certain stage in its growth that it should be topped to make the best lest If you will notice, the firstfour or five leaves of the plant are smaller; these should be taken off Then, after the next ten leaves...

)UTHERN AGRICULTURAL r Southern Rural Lif. Man is naturally a social being, by virtue of a unified constitution of faculties and the general means of the education of his faculties originally the same everywhere. Language. the principal means of intelligent com munication, draws men together. and common interests cement the relation ship so necessary to the stability of government from the family roof-tree to the integral and general ligaments that bind a nation in unity, liberty and a common prosperity. We must acknowledge that the elements of sociality are not so favorable as in the North. We do not wish to be under stood that sociality is not a feature of Southern life. only that its fre quent repetition, more particularly in the country. is a measure prevented by isolation; nor do we insinuate that a general hospitality Is not general and sincere. The most important reasons for this are found in the fact that large tracts of land are owned by single m dividuals which makes the i...

mUTHERN AGRICUILTURAI Sweet Potato Culture Thi perhaps is not as valuable a market crop as many other garden crops, but I consider it one of the easiest of cultivation, and no garden or farm is complete without it. A sandy soil is generally recommended bor this crop, but I have been most esuccessful on rather clayey soil. The best results follow a heavy application of manure, yet the finest crop I ever raised was on a sod turned unader with ouat any manure. In preparing the land, break it not over four inches deep. If the land could be got mel low, It would be best not to break the land under the ridges, but it is not easy to pulverize the soil with out breaking a1 of it. The land should be stirred every week, or at least often enough to bring it into fine condition by the time you want to plant. Then, with a small turning plow, throw two furrows together so as to make a small ridge about a foot high and not over eighteen inches broad. The ridges may be three feet apart and the plan...
