How I Plant Oats In Cotta
Editor Southern Cultivator:
You say when you find a go
way to do anything, pass it on, s<
write you a cheap way. I put in r
oats last year in cotton, and thit
it the best I ever tried. I took t
Planet Jr. cultivator, took off t\
feet and adjusted thc feet so tl
outside plows would make a ft
row by the side of the cotton stal
and the center plow would make
farrow in center of cotton rc
Sowed the oats broadcast and run
V-shaped harrow lightly over ti
furrows so teeth would strike ridg
and fill farrow about half full. Th
pat oats in the furrow as perfect
as if you had used a drill, had tl
advantage of being in open furro\
two trips to row oompleted the jo!
bad three rows of oats to the co
ton row perfectly drilled. I fe
lowed behind the pickers in N
vember and in open furrow, whic
protects them (rom being killed h
the freeaes, and they stand dr
Another thing I found outaboi
oats last year. I sowed some UK
were recleaned "or graded" an
some just as they cerne from th
thresher. Those that had been r<
deaned cost more, but they mad
10 io 12 bushels more per acre tha
the uncleaned, on same land am
same preparation. Made 40 bust
ela per acre without fertiliser wher
oats were graded.

Selling Cotton Seed.
Mr. Editor:- Did you ever notic
how; Some farmers will sacrifice am
rob .'themselves to save a little trout
le and work. Great many, of th?
farriers around and near Edg?n*el<
haye ajiqnired the habit, of seilim
their seed ..at ;jfchV gins when the;
gin'to.sayC the-trouble of liand?trijj
an a - h au ling tn'?s? seed to market
So much so is thi? the case that th?
ginrier now each year contract:
with some mill to buy and haul ii
these seed at two and a half anc
three cents per bushel over anc
above the market price. Now these
mills make such contracts and al
low the ginner to pay the market
price out in the country and go tc
work and bold market down twe
and a half and three cents uudet
what it should be in order to bal
ance up even alter paying the gin
The Edgefield market now should
be forty cents per bushel and all
buyers are paying thirty-seven and
a half. Forty cents is being paid ai
some other points and should and
would be in Edgefield were it noi
for the facts stated. If farmers were
to bring their seed on to market in
stead of selling to gins there is not
the least doubt Edgefield would be
a better seed market both now aud
always. It would seem that they
are getting the market at gins when
really they are not.

How to Prevent Cheat.
Please advise me how to treat
seed oats to prevent cheat?
No treatment is needed by pun
seed oats to orevent cheat. You can
not grow a plant of cheat from oat
seed to save your life. The only
way to prevent cheat is to sow al>
uolutely clean seed oats. Then, u
the land is not already stocked with
cheat seed, you will have no cheat,
for the cheat grow* only from cheat
seed and from nothing else. If you
sow a mixture of oats and cheat you
will have cheat, but it is utterlj im
possible to grow cheat (Bromus se
calinus) from anything but cheat
seed. Much of our soil is already so
stocked with cheat seed that it is
hard to grow a perfectly clean crop.
But if there are no cheat seed in
your soil and yon sow none with
the oats, yon will not have any
cheat plants. If any come, it is sim
ply evidence that the seed were in
the soil or you sowed some with the

An Appeal to School Trustees.
Mr. Editor: With your consent
I wy aid like to call the attention of
the entire white school trnetees of
Edgefield county, to ( the report of
the state superintendent of educa
tion. In Tuesday's state, October
28. He says in his report that each
white child enrolled gets $12.57.
Each negro child gets 96 cents. Now
gentlemen I want to anpeal to you
and ask you if you can't do better
for these helpless children?
The negro is required to help
support all branches of the govern
ment, without any' representation
whatever and it does look like that
you would be willing to share a
part of your school fund with him.
I see gentlemen that there is only
one county in the state that givus
less for negro education and that is
Lee county. I Bee they give only 92
cents. Now gentlemen please con
sider this matter and see if you
can't do better. I am satisfied it will
be highly appreciated by the pa
rents- of these poor unfortunate
A. W. Si m kine.
Now is the time to do your fall
plowing. Few farmers know the
value of this work, because they
have done so little of it. It is very
unfortunate that so many excusa
themselves on the gronnd that they
haven't the time. Well, it. does not
pay to get so busy with all cotton,
endeavoring to pay the long list of
debts, the heaviest of which is un
necessary to make, viz., the bill for
foodstuff. It is not only time for
fall plowing, but it is high time to
change your system ot farming, and
to so arrang? things that you will
have time to do.the jyprk-whieb will .
pay.-.you .o^ftt,sIt;.U;.man^ement that
payson tho farra, 'far better than
luck, work or rains. Sd me will take
issue with mc, but we1 know we are
right. It is perfectly wonderful how
our farmers want to detract from
the successful farmer. We were
talking to a crowd of farmers and
mentioning a very successful farmer
who has made $100,000 fanning,
and one said, "He is not such a
good farmer, but the best trader you
ever saw;" another said, "Ho is the
luckiest man you ever saw." Not a
une gave him any credit for the
good management and work that
had made him so successful. We
want to say, this farmer not only
believed in but bas practiced for
forty years fall plowing.-Southern

The Nation's Hope in Poor Boys.
I remember speaking at a school
not long ago where I understood
that almost all the young men were
the sons of very rioh people, and I
told them I looked upon ihe.n with
a trreat deal of pity, because I said:
"Most of you fellows are doomed to
obscurity. You will not do anything.
Yon will never try to do anything,
and with all the great tasks of the
country waiting to be done, proba
bly you are the very men wbo will
decline to do them. Some man who
has been 'up against it.' some man
who has come out of the crowd,
somebody who has had thu whip of
necessity laid on his back, will
emerge out of the crowd, will show
that be understands the interest? of
the nation, united and not separat
ed, and will stand up and lead us."
-From "The New Freedom" by
A Night of Terror.
Few nights are more terrible than
that of a mother looking on her
child choking and gasping for
breath during an attack of croup,
and nothing in the house to relieve
it. Many mothers have passed nights
of terror in this situation. A little
forethought will enable you to'
avoid all this. Chamberlain's cough
remedy is a certain cure for croup
and ha? never been known to fail.
