Mr. George W. Scott, one of the
most progressive young farmers
who resides in the Long Branch
section, was in Edgefield Saturday,
and state*! while in conversation
with the Advertiser's representative
that he has 40 acres sown in peas.
He will mow what he needs this
fall and will turn the remainder of
the vines in order to improve the
land. Mr. Scott is a strong advo
cate of impro ving the soil by sup
plying more i.umus. In addition to
peas he expe< ts to try vetch and
clover this fali. Would that every
farmer in the . ounty would become
a Progressiv: in agriculture, adoot
ing new ideas and methods. Mr.
Scott make?? farming a profession

Hea vy Yield of Oats in Moss.
In estimating the splendid har
vest of oats in the county by town
ships, Moss township, judging from
numerous reports that have come
to us, is the banner township in the
county. Mr. C. M. Williams told
the Advertiser's representative Mon
day that he has never t een finer oats
grown than some that were har
vested by some of his neighbors this
year. Not only were the oats very
heavy on small fertile spots but the
large fields averaged well. Mr.
Ward Corley had 147 bushels of
oats threshed from two acres.
In reply to the question as to
how the season had been for the
thresher which has been operated
jointly this season bv his son and
Mr. W. T. Reel, Mr. Williams
said that over practically the same
territory in which 1,800 bushels of
oats were threshed last year they
threshed over 13,000 bushels this
year. That gives some idea of the
large relative yield over the county.
