-Mr. J. W. Bowden, Editor of The
DEAR 'SIR: Mi! 0. A. Wylie,
Richburg, -Chester county, a suc
. cessf ul. fanner, furnishes this office
with an experiment in taisingcorn
and I have concluded to send you
his statement for publication, in
your paper with the view that our
farmers throughout the State may
be benefited thereby.
I see no reason why a first-class
.: agricultural paper may not be
made a success in our State if de
voted strictly to agriculture and
kindred interests by inviting the
assistance of farmers of the State
lo contribute to it-liberally. ,
Yours very truly,
THOS W. HOLLOWAY,
Sec. A. & M. Society.
Mr. President and Gentlemen of
*-(the Executive Committee of the
State Agricultural and Mechani
* cal Society of South Carolina : -
I beg leave to submit the follow
ing statement under Section IS of
the Rules of the Society :
In order to make the report of
the yield of corn on one acre more
intelligent. I submit the cost of
_ producing 342 bushels on eight
and three-four th s acres of nplaud.
* * The'land was in cotton
last year (1891), three acres of j
which was fairly good clay land,
five and three-fourths acres sandy
"^"Before the war the sandy land
was considered too poor to pay for
cultivation with slave labor.
The clay land was broken with
what we call Bide grab three inches j
wide, breaking five to six inches
deep. The.sandy land was broken
with a two-horse double foot plow.
plow, and I find it: a
implement and a'success.
About the first of April the field
waB run off.in rows on a level four]
feet wide with a shovel plow nine
bj ten inches, which made a wide,
open furrow five or six inches
deep. Into this furrow fresh sta
ble manure was distributed all
along as light; as it could be evenly
put in. The stable manure was
used on about five acres. On the
remainder of the field I used 200
pounds of chemical fertilizer when
corn was planted and 200 pounds
on side of corn at second plowing.
.The stable manure was left uncov
ered for a day or two.
About April 8 planted Mosby
corn and covered with light double
foot plow, using two very small
grabs, which covered the grains
about one- inch deep. Before the
corn came up, run a furrow in
middle of rows with the same
large shovel, which made splendid
water furrow. The corn came up
well. When about five inches high,
run around with a three-footed
cultivator, front foot of cultivator
run inside of opeoing furrow,
throwing just enough ,dirt to corn
to cover young crop*?jJ grass. The
roar or third foot of cultivator run
near enough to vrater furrow to
cover grass in same. The work
was so well done that hoeing was
not needed. I have not hoed corn
fop some years past, finding it use
less expense. ?** Thinned corn on
wet days by hand, leaving one
stalk, from eighteen inches to two
feet apart. For fear of mislead
ing others, I would say that I know
or no other variety of corn that
will bear such crowding iu drill
as Moeby's. I have been planting
this v?riety of corn since 1886,
and to r?mew my seed I bought of
Mosby one bushel at a cost of $3.
The exrjressage was $2.70. *
About two weeks after first plow
ing, the second plowing with same
cultivator, with all three feet of
cultivator set to throw dirt to corn.
This plowing filled the drill fur
row to a level and nearly filled wa
ter furrow. About this time an
excess of rain fell. For fear of
washing, and in order to retain as
much of the rain as possible, I
run one furrow in priddle of row
witt} game plow | lajd P.ff with.,
.p^e t?fr4 ftn4 Iwt. plowing was
dane with a one-horse double font
plow, using two worn eight inch
Until corn commenced to tassel
had had too much rain, from
. which it was slightly injured.
About the time the silks began to
appear rain ceased and there was
norain for three weeks; then a
good rain, and then thiee more
weeks of dry weather-the last
week the hottest of the year. The
corn suffered considerably-the
blades were burned up_ to about
eighteen inches on the stock. The
crop was on the public road and a
great many persons pronounced
the crop a failure, said it was plant
ed too thick, etc.,- but when the
fodder was stripped the ears show
ed up two to a stalk and in some
cases three ears'.
Notice that in each of the three
plowings that only one round in a
row was made, thus reducing the
cost of cultivation to a *%niniraum
on hill or rolling land from the
ordinary mode of cultivation.
In our low country the land clear
of obstructions could be cultivated
with a suitable cultivator at half
or at much less expense than on
hill land. Someday in the not
distant future the low country
will be the "Eldorado" of South
Carolina. " .
It will be a great day for South
Carolina when our farmers learn
that'econoray is the bed rock of
successfui farming. * The best of
them never think of the cost of
production. For instance. I have
a neighbor who is called a good
farmer, who gave me his plan of
cultivating corn, which cost him
as much for one plowing per acre
as the three plowings-cost me,
showing that at least one-third of
the labor is expended in cultiva
ting the crop is so much time and
labor wasted. That if this third
of the labor was* intelligently di
rected, the result would be aston
On weU-drained upland deep
plantimphas giveu the best re
My custom has been to scatter ih*
manure in the drill, causing the
.rootlets to seek some distance for
it. If concentrated at the hill the
rootlets concentrate at that p< int,
hence less substance to the roots
than if properly distributed.
Never plow laud wet. Run rows
ou a level so as to retain the rain
fall. Never put much dirt to com
early in the spring, and when once
you begin to plow, do so regularly.
In conclusion I beg to say that
the result of the experiment made
by me and that of Mr. Drake de
monstrates the fact that South
Carolina soil is capable of making
more corn per acre and cheaper
corn per bushel than any other
State in America.
As the result of the experiment
the * following statement is made
from eight and three-fourths acres
of land: ^
Breaking land, mian and horse
8 days, $8.00
Seed corn, 5.70
Planting, 3 men and 2 horses
1 day, 2.50
Hauling and scatter'g manare, 4.00
Cultivating, 1 man and horse
7} days, 7.40
Thinning. 1 man 2 days, 1.00
Total cost of production, $28.70
Average number of bushels on
8f acres 39$.
Average cost of production per
bushel 8 2-5 cents.
Largest yield on one acre 56*f
bushels, 6 cents per bushel.
Two thousand bundles of fodder
were gathered from the 8? acres of
land, worth as much or more than
the manure used.

Draining the Okefinokee Swamp.
The work of draining Okefinokee
swamp, the biggest undertaking of
its character in America, which
will eventually reclaim 220,000
acres . of the finest agricultural
land in the country, is progressing
at a remarkably satisfactory rate.
The great swan?p is situated in
the southeastern part of Georgia,
and extends northerly from the
border line of Florida. Creeks of
St. Mary's River and Suwanee
reach to the swamp. One of the
engineers in charge of Ufe work
was in the city recently and gave
the writer an interesting chat about
the scheme, which will open up a
section which for 'centuries has
been under water and muck, the

One hundred and fifty laborers
are now at work at the swamp, and

the swamp to St. Mary's River, is
being pushed forward as rapidly

jan accomplish it. After January
I, this force will be doubled, one
balf working during the day and
the other at night, so that this
year's results will be twice as much
as that of the last twelve months.
This canal, when completed, will
be 150 ft. wide aud 63 ft. deep,
with a fall of 125 ft. to St. Mary's
River. The most difficult part of
the construction will be through a
high knoll two miles long. Through
the middle of the swamp anothei
canal, sixteen miles long, will be
constructed, with small branches,
the whole to act as feeders to the
big drainage stream.
When thu latter is completed)

pacity of .30,000 gallons each pei
