Lynched by "Whitecaps." .o. Not long ago Calvin' Stewart, a negro, murdered Colonel Joseph Carter, an elderly gentleman, well known in the South, where his family have resided for years on the Hill Grove Plantation, Columbia, South Carolina.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 17 November 1893
It is very doubtful whether the chemical analysis of soils is of any value to the average farmer. The chemist may tell him if there is anything injurious to plant lifd there; but the plants will tell that, at less expense, by their condition and appearance. The chemist, again, may find a deal more of plant food in the soil that is soluble with acids, etc., but is quite un available to the plants through being insoluble in water or under ordinary coaditions of nature. The most satisfactory plan is to sow plots along with different fertilisers (containing nitrogen in one case, phusphoric acid, ptoah, lime, etc., in other plots), and have a t.trlot alongside each without any fertiliser. ,Teeulting crop will tell what might be expete if the whole field were fertilised with any Scular substance or combination of substances

A TOBACCO EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 17 November 1893
A TOBACCO EXHIBITION. --o It may have been the possible spread of cholera in our midst, or it may have been semethingelse, but Mr Du Plat is adding a Tobacco Exhibition to his long list of suo ceases at the Aquarium. Apropos of cholera, by the way, the catalogue says that -'during theplaguetoboceo was recommended andtakon as a prevention of infection, doctors and nurses frequently used it, and those who went round with the dead carts smoked per petually, for the universal belief was that no one who used tobacco suffered from the disease." However this may be, the exhibi. tion promises to be one of very great interest. lsOW TOI:ACCtO G;RiOWS. At the Aquarium, tobaccos of all qualities, brands and conditions will be on view. And the particulars concerning each, which are readily forthcoming, are very interesting. Tobacco, it seems, is a plant of such extreme delicacy that the slight dif ference in soils separated only by a few feet of land may alter the value of the tobac:o from sixpe...

DAN'L AND DAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 17 November 1893
DAN'L AND DAD. It was at a steamboat landing on the Arkansas river below Little Rock. There was an excited crowd in front of a ware. house at the landing, and several passen gera went ashore to find out what had happened. A young man, about 24 years of age seemed to be a sort of boss around there and we appealed to him for information. Pushing his hat over a little more on his right ear and squirting a jet of tobacco-juice at the left eye of the nearest dog, he replied : " Gentlemen, 1 bin tell ye all about it. Do ye want to see t he corpse"' "Then some oneis dead ?" " Dead as a coon-track, and it's my old dad at that !"

Life in India. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 17 November 1893
Life in India. ---o It is an Englishman's birthright to grumble, and the Tirhut planter is not be hind his fellows and countrymen in this re epect, says the " Calcutta Englishman.' But he means nothing, no Englishman does, when he grumbles; it is only an easy outlet for his discontented feelings when he abuses everything that comes in contact with him. So when the planter flings himself down in a chair, and cries savagely that "it's a ghastly country for the white man," you may rest assur.d that he is perfectly satisfied with the land of his adoption; and, looking at the matter eeriousiy 00 percent. of us have very little cause to growl at the gorgeous East. Planting may not be a very lucrative game until age and borrowed capital have given you the " pleasant hang of the thing." IBut compare it with the life that an average public school man would be fitted to follow at home, when the necessity came to him to find his own bread. For the most part office and bank stools with twelve p...
Iron and Water. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 17 November 1893
Iron and Water. The water supply of Antwerp is drawn from the river Nethe, and is puittled by pasning through cylinders containing iron filings. The water which leaves the river is the filthiest imaginable. After filtration it is absolutely pure both chemically and visually. The experienee of Antwerp is a practical illustration of the principle laid down by scientists that cona tact with iron removes by far the most dangerous properties from contaminated water. Thus experiments have shown that by thls means the percentage of organic mattersih re duced from 45 to 85 per cent.; of albuminoid ammonia, from 50 to 90 per cent. ; while free ammonia ie entirely eliminated.
Stringhalt. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 17 November 1893
Stringhalt. -0-o Veterinariaus have been unable to decide as to the cuse of this singular affection. Some believe that it is the result of a disease of the hlack, or aries from some malformation of it, while others consider it a nervous or muscular doicase. \Vhatever be the cause, the symptoms are most uouistakable, though some of the horse atffected may onl0y how them to a sdight extent. Iu the worst cases she seat of the troulle may be in one or both hind legs, and thee are raaaed with a tuick, jerky motion until the fetlock almost or quite touches the abdomen. It matters not whether the animal is trotting, walking or turning round, the motion in the same, and old and young horses are alike affected. Some animals will only show it when backing out of the stable; others only when turning round, and when they move forward they seem to step perfectly, and with no sign of the jerk so characteristic of this affection. It is thas habit with some horse- of ooly showing the rymptomus unde...
Proverbial Dairy Philosophy. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 17 November 1893
Proverbial Dairy Philosophy. -------o Milk adulteration may be brought about in many indirect ways. The dairyman who keepe his milk pure ean be trusted as an honest man. .sa hay is made when the sun shines, so is money iucseasxa Shst dniryman who nsauuos so that hie cows yield auuhaud J ,. .... e, prices are high. Some people seem to forget that the amonut of protit on a pound of butter often depende as as much on reducing the cost of the products: as in obtaining an enhanced price. The dairyman who dumps a mass of decayed garbage before his cows for economy's sake, is injuring his cuatoemer more than if he dilated his milk half with water. He commits an equally injurious act agi?ost his fellow men when he leaves the carcase of a dead animal unburied in the cow pasture, or daily milks with manure-begrimed hand. The factory manager who habitually has rich butter-milk, and whey on which a thick blanket cream will arise, is a costly individual to employ, even when working for his board...

AGRICULTURAL COLUMN The Wheat Yield of the World, ---o- Y "Beerbohm's Evening Corn Trade List" has l for years been peiistic, prophesying of deficiencies in stocks and advances in are prices which have not cc:urred. Our con sot temporary claims "that after allowing for sat the most optimistic estimates of the various e crops, we ind that the world's wheat yield de. promises this year to be about 19,000,000 quar. ters less than last year." With so serieus a possible shringare, " Beer bolm (lst September) writes consolingly aor of farmers and importers as follcws:-" Under i lbeeo circumstances we can only reiterate the of opinion that it is only a quoestion of a short time he before this altered state of sul ply and demand a must exert its inOtonee cn nrices." Every. he body interested in wheat-groawing can heartily h wish that this progocstication will be justified. sh But unfortuuna:oy the question is not one to be settled by interest and desire, and when we turn to "'eorge Dornbusc...

Cultivating Young Orchards. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 17 November 1893
Cultivating Young Orchards. The man who plants an orchard and thi?ks because he has ploughed his ground deep, r.d then harrowed it well, that he can let it stand uo until the weeda begin to grow, and then use a cultivator, a most ogregiouly mistaken in the likelihood of his making a success of his uolcr taking. It is positively necessary for the cultv ator tobe usedat once on the ground, just as soon as the trees are planted; and in order .o make the trees start and grow; my suggestion is to cultivate cultivate! cultivate . The remark hasbeen made that the growing of trees was only a question of "common sense." Thic is jiust the very thing you have pot to exerc,?e. Dol s it not stand to reason that when you plougb your ground, in upsetting it the gracd does not fell back very closely, there are more orless interstices or vacant places all about and throughout your land?

Developing a Milking Propensity [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 17 November 1893
Developing a Milking Propensity The question of not only strong milking habit in cows, and health and vigor to back it up, is a question that every dairyman is in terested in, and that the great milker is to be depended upon to hold up both ends of this demand is the mattei that is attracting atteun tiou. That great milkers are the types of vigor and easily reproduce themselves is a common assertion. On this point Professor Shaw, of Canada, has this to ay: The question may be raised here, What is meant by extreme milk development? There is no formulated answer to it which would give a consensus of opinion, or even perhaps what might be termed the conjoined opinion of a considerable number. I suppose, therefore, that it will be necessary to frame an answer. In the opinion of the writer, extreme milk development is that degree of develop ment in the line of milk production which is in. consistent with the highest bodily vigor, and which tends to the produation of progeny so defieient ...
POPULAR SCIENCE Photographing in Colors. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 17 November 1893
POPULAR SCIENCE Photographing in Colors. The question which aroused such a lively interest and such warm discuasion in all circles of society, as to the poseibility of photographing colors directly from nature would appear (Pays the Paris correspondent of the" Daily Telegraph ") to have at lat been solved in a satisfactory manner. The theory belongs to hM. Lipmann, who has de. voted many years of his life to the study of the subje:t, and the ptactical application is the work of a certain Louis Lumlere, of Lyons, who has introduced a series of im. portant technical improvements, the result of which have just been exhibited to the members of the Photo Club of Paris. It is a pity that the evening was chosen for the purpose, as it is no easy matter to distinguish colors and hues after sundown. Butenough was seen to astonish the members of the club, and send a thrill of joy to their hearts, which manifested itself in deafening applause. By means of his special prepara. tions the secret o...
