THIS little book has been written, the author tells us, as an elementary text-book on agriculture that shall differ from others in having a definite and limited field—the southern States of the United States. Wrhile the principles underlying the subject are universal, their applications vary much in different localities, and by confining attention to a particular area it becomes possible to present the subject in the concrete way essential for beginners. The crops, soil conditions, and general facts of cultivation are all within the experience of the scholar or his farmer friends, and he is not likely to be troubled with that bête noir of the agricultural teacher—the principle that is perfectly sound in itself, but not economical, and therefore not applicable, in the particular district.
