A FINAL DUSTING MAY
FURTHER PROTECT BOLLS.
Clemson College, Aug. 21.-Where
ever natural shedding is heavy and
the weevil is very active, and there
is little or no fruiting, no further
profit may be expected from dust
ing; but wherever -normal weather
conditions exist and not more than
normal shedding occurs and cotton is
still fruiting, another dusting is ad
visable in order to give every possi
ble protection to the bolls, said Prof.
A. F. Conradi, entomologist, this
morning after the weekly conference
in Director Long's office on the boll
weevil situation. Other facts and
suggestions developed at the cchfer
ence are given below.
The weather conditions are varia
ble throughout the state, ranging
from extreme wet weather in some
localities to extreme drought in oth
ers. In many fields throughout the
central and southern parts of the
state there is little fruiting at this
time, because of excessive natural
shedding combined with weevil punc
tures. In dry areas in the Piedmont
section natural shedding is very heavy
although weevil infestation is com
paratviely light. But the falling of'
oif fruit is generally attributed by
farmers to the boll, weevil.
The general weather conditions a
this time resentble those of last year
although the same e-tremes do no1
exist in the same localities in everl
case. The weather damage at thi,
time should ilot be overlooked b
farmers, and every effort should b
made to get most careful and impar
tial' estimates of the percentage ol
their crop loss due to weevil and the
percentage due to natural shedding
It must be remembered that, owin
to heavy continuous rainfall in cer
tain sections of the state, then
would likely have been a crop failur
regardless of the boll weevil. Thi
is important for people to considei
so that they may not get the idet
that cotton can no longer be growr
successfully. There- were cotton crol
failures on account of Weather long
before the boll weevil came.
COWS ENABLE GROWER TO
HOLD FOR BETTER PRICES
Beginning with 1918, each yeai
has been a long step ahead for H. B
Goodson, of Florence, S. C., a localit)
where the cattle tick has been eradi
cated. ire are the steps, year b)
1918-Raising cotton and tobacc<
and enough corn to feed the mules
In the fjl he had a 20 acre patch o
fine ryf for a cover crop, but it look
ed too good t be left uneateA. SC
he borrowed money at~4he. bank and
bought a few cows withkihe idea 1
.- -fattening them and putting them or
the market in December or Janual-y.
But, unexpectedly, three of the cows
dropped calves. They proved to be
fairly good milkers and he sta'rted
selling the milk to a distributing
plant in a town nearby. In the spring
he bought 4 more grades, bringing
the total up to 7.
1919-Continued milking the 7
cows. In the fall 7 more grades were
added at prices ranging from $35 to
$65 a head.
1920-Some of the neighbors had
bought Guernseys which \vere much
superior -to the cows of the locality.
In February, Mr. Goodson bought 3
purebre'd cows, and at a sale in
March he bought 2 more.
1921-This year the manure show
ed its value in building up the soil.
On a field that had been treated with
5 loads to the acre, with 50 pounds
of nitrate of soda at the last plow
ing, corn produced 55 bushels to the
acre. Previously 35 bushels had been
a good yield on this land.
1922-This year the fields that have
been receiving manure will make 3
to 1 over fields that have not been
But the whole story is not that of
increase of soil fertility brought about
by keeping cows. Mr.~Goodson now
has a herd of 12 purebred Guernseys,
10 cows and 2 bulls. Last December
he sold a bull calf to a bull associa
tion in the State for $250. He is
keeping another bull calf for which
he was offered $750.
"Besides producing direct returns,"
says Mr. Goodson, "my cows by stip
plying me with a regular inconle, en
abled me to hold my cotton -crop un
til the price went up. I have raised
most of smy own feet, and as a re
sult keepi'ng cows has meant little
outlay in money except for the ani
mals themselves. In the fall of 1919,
I sold my farm and have been rent
ing since that time. 1 am now buy
ing another farm and expect to build
a silo soon.
"In the spring of 1919, I was get
ting 11 cents a point for each per
cent of butterfat per gallon of milk
about 5 Ocents a gallon-and for 125
lays 7 cows brought me $12 a day.
Prices for milk and butterfat are low
er now, but they are high enough to
make dairying profita~le."
Since the modern bath tub was in

Saturda nig-ht rolls around.
