Farmers to Ship Cotton.
0 f&umty Agent Carwile returned
|from Columbia, after a meeting there
.Monday of the Clemson College field
workers in the interest of the Export
Corporation, inspired over the fact
that the Southern farmers and busi
ness* men are no longer dependent up
.on the New Yo\rk Exchange to mar
ket the cotton for our people, as they
have been in the past. Among the
things brought out in this meeting
are: Over 81,000,000 have been sub
scribed in South Carolina by 5,000
subscribers; the Organization Com
mittee will apply for a charter on
the 12th of this month; then stock
will be sold in the other Southern
states; some of the cotton will be
shipped in the month of December;
the Corporation will buy cotton and
Avili handle cotton on a commission
i>asis; the Corporation will have very
efficient men in the field to buy and
handle the cotton.
Also, the Clemson agents planned
a series of meetings in the counties
of the state. Below is the schedule
for the meetings in Edgefield county:
Monday, November 15, ll a. m.
Edgefield Court House-speaker,
Major Henry C. Tillman of Green
Tuesday, November 16, 10:30 a.
m.-Red Hill-speaker, W. H. Nich
olson of Greenwood.
Tuesday, November 16, 3 p. m.
Johnston-speakers, B. B. Hare and
B. W. Crouch of Saluda.
Every farmer that cares about the
common cause is urged to be at one
of these meetings. Every farmer
should post himself on the workings
of the Corporation and should take
stock in it also. And for the reasons
the above meetings will be held.

j Fall Preparation of Seed Bed
The club boy who is working and"
planning for a big profitable yield
should select an acre that will be
cleared of crops early in the fall and
break it deep. Eight inches or more
is considered deep plowing but if a
turn plow is used, it should not go
[more than two inches below the pre
I vious seed bed. That is, land that has
[been plowed four inches will not
[stand over six inches this year with
a turn plow and eight inches next I
Not only is fall a good season for
seed bed preparation, but it is an
excellent time for working into the
land organic matter which is badly
needed by most soils. Cornstalks,
cowpea and velvet bean vines and
other litter, if turned under early in
fall, will have decayed by spring.
Just before'the fall plowing 10 or
more two-horse loads of manure to
the acre, if available, should be
broadcasted. Applied at this time, it
will be thoroughly decayed by spring
and ready for plant use.
The last step in fall preparation is
a winter cover crop. Rye is the safest
and surest one and will do well on
nearly any kind of land. A fresh
deeply broken seed bed is not be?t
for rye or other small grains; but in
spite of this, rye will make a good
spring pasture and much geen or
ganic matter to turn under. It may
be sowed from the middle of summer
to November. Oats and vetch are al
so good crops but not so sure as rye.
They do well together.-P. 0. Davis
in The Progressive Farmer.
Change Sows and Pigs to Green
A reader has a field of "velvet
beans ready to put hogs on. Will it
injure three sows and their 22 pigs
two weeks old, to turn them on these
It will not injure the sows and pigs
to turn them on these velvet beans,
but certain conditions should be con
sidered in changing the feed of
'breed sows suckling pigs.
In the first place, it is not good
'practice to turn a brood sow and
1 young pigs on green feed, if she has
not been accustomed to it, and allow
her to eat all she wants. The change
should be made gradually from dry
to green feed, or the milk flow may
be so stimulated as to cause the
young pigs to suffer from scours.
When the pigs are older they will
take all the milk the mother can
produce, but when young they may
not be able to do so.
Young pigs turned into a luxuriant
green growth, especially during wet
weather, sometimes suffer from an
irritation of the skin. We think it
would be a good plan to grease the
pigs before turning them into a green
growth, especially in damp weather.
It is also doubtful if it is the most
economical to force these brood sows
and pigs to get all their feed from
the velvet beans. A very small daily
feed of corn or some other such dry
feed will probably pay.-Progressive
