B Tally thinks he has done wonders with a full-blooded Poland China sow, so I thought I would like to tell the readers of The Mercury about pa's old sow •be is half Poland China, quarter Berkshire and quarter just hog. He bought her for $8. She had 37 pigs inside of twelve months and seven days. The first litter was twelve, and saved tiine, seven of them he mac1 e neat of, that averaged 250 pounds each, which at 6 cents would be $105; two he let run for brood sows, which have pigs at present, and he can sell them for $30. The second litter ol the old sow was twelve pigs, and raised eight, which he can c sh for $5 each. Third l:tter she didn't have but 13, she lost two, leaving eleven, which can be «old for $2 each, and he is offered $26 for the old sow alone, so you see she has made in 53 weeks, Ipss her first cost, $214.

THE SOUTHERN MERCURY: dallas, texas, thursday, feb. «, 1890. THE PKRM. CUBY PAJEtM NOTES. The successful fanner works twelve months each year. Raise vegetables and fruits on the farm and save the doctor bills. The business farmer works six days in the week and rests on the seventh. . There is farming and farming, but successful farming is business farming. Thorough plowing of the land will make cultivation easier and crops bet ter. Tomatoes are the earliest vegetable raised, the most healthful and the easiest canned. To succeed in any business a • per- son has to closely attend to that busi- ness in «11 its details. A few fowls on die place with com- fortable quarters, will produce all the eggs and Iries a family' need. Every farmer should raise fruit suf- ficient for home consumption and to lay up for winter use. Great care should be exercised in selecting seed corn. A healthy growth depends upon a sound seed. The farmers of Texas should build out-houses and take moré care of their...

CORRESPONDENCE. THB SOUTHERN- MEBCURVi. BAhLAfl. TfcXA8, tHlB&DAY, FEB. 13, 1890. fhilfbrm Text BooksyOnr Present System a Burden. Texas will be called upon next No- vember to select and elect not only a state ticket but a legislature, a body of representative men whose duty it will be to pass such measures as the wel (are and best interests of the people demand, such measures as will tend to raise the burden of taxation from the people and conduce to local and gen eral prosperity. In view of this fact I think a public discussion through the presa of some of the more important questions will prove beneficial, and I am pleased to note that The Mercury has made arrangements with able wri- ters for the discuscussion of some of these questions in its columns. There is one subject, Mr. Editor, that I wish merely to call attention to in this ar- ticle, with the hope of attracting the attention of others more able to discuss the question than myself, and that subject is the question of...

Fanners cannot be too careful in their seed com. This is the season of the year when Ike good husbandman will prepare the garden spot. A well read man is a learned man.

If our present Etate constitution had not sought to give a monopoly of banking to a few state banks, would we have had more or less national banks in the states? Would interest have been higher or lower? Would the field gates have been 60 wide open for foreign capital? 1 he foreigner, you know, has got no mortgage on anybody's home In Texas, except the fellow who has no home.

THE SOUTHERN MERCURY; DALLAS, TEXAS, THURSDAY, FEB. 80, 1890. THE FARM. Watermelon Culture. This is an important crop in the South, because our"colored people will have "millions" if it takes their last penny, and very few of them are en- terprising enqugh to raise them. If they are raised five or six miles back from the railroad they cannot be ac- quired except by purchase. I plant several acres every year. Several months beforehand I begin to prepare my manure; I haul up a quan- tity of muck, mix with it about one- tenth its bulk of cotton-seed meal, and throw the whole mass at once in the box-stalls where I stable my horse and mule. It is their only bedding; for months they paw and stamp it, mixing it thoroughly with their droppings and «riñe. If need be, I shovel ii over once or twice, but I do not clean out the stalls until I require the manure for use. Horse-hoofs will stir compost ■ore cheaply than I can with a shovel. About the last of January is my time for planting. First,...
