Banks of County Agreed to '
Help Farmers Buy Cows. '
The banks of Newberry county 1
have agreed to help reliable and re- 3
sponsible farmers of Newberry coun
ty purchase cows, according to an
announcement made public today by '<
the agricultural committee of the 1
Newberry chamber of Commerce.
This committee has conferred with all <
bankers of the county on the subject, j
and with but one exception all <
have agreed to do everything possi- i
ble to assist the farmers in purchas
ing cows in order that they may be .
in position to furnish cream to the j
Newberry creamery, which enterprise .
is now in full operation. <
The establishment of the creamery (
in Newberry means more, than can j
be said in this article toward fighting ]
the boll weevil, for if every farmer ,
in the county will milk two or three j
cows and sell the cream to the cream- i
ery and feed skimmed milk to the \
?hogs and chickens and make proper .
use of the natural fertilizer they get .
from the cows they wlil soon be in
position to run farms on a cash and
Every farme:: in the county who is .
interested in buying a few cows ,
should see his banker at once and ;
advise them of the number of cows ,
wanted and make necessary arrange
ments about paying for them. The
banks of the county who have agreed ,
to assist in this proposition are as
follows: Exchange Bank of Newber
ry, Commercial Bank of Newberry,
National Bank of Newberry, Bank of
Whitmire, Farmers Bank of Chap
pels, Bank of Prosperity, People's
Nationa? Bank of Prosperity and the
Farmers and Merchants Bank of
The banks absolutely will not take
chances on buying a bunch of cows
and sell them out just as they can;
every cow must be sold before they
are purchased. As soon as a sufficient
number are ordered to make a car
load shipment the order will be ?
The banks who have agreed to this
proposition are co be commended for
their act, for indeed they are giving
assistance when it is mostly needed,
and as stated above, all farmers in
terested should see their banks with
out delay.-Newberry Observer.

On Weevil Control in 1922. .
Clemson College, June 28.-For j
the purpose of summing up in conve
nient form the recommendations of ^
the Extension Service regarding boll
weevil control this year, Information .
Card No. 22, entitled "Boll Weevil
Control in 1922," has been issued and ?
may be had upon application from j
the Extension Service, Clemson Col- j
lege, S. C., or from the county agent. ]
This brief publication gives seven <
points on the matter of control of the i
weevil, these being restatements of
che suggestions made from time to <
cime by the Extension Service. They i
lave to do with cultivation, picking '
af weevils and squares, poisoning, <
plowing under stalks as early as pos- 1
sible in the fall, planting cover crops
ifter cotton, and practicing clean i
farming to destroy boll weevil hiber- ]
lation places. t
Advice as to Poisoning.
The advice given on the informa- 1
;ion Curd as to poisoning is quoted
"The following are the conditions
mder which poisoning may be ex
pected to be profitable, (a) On high c
fielding land, (b) Where weevil in- ,t
Gestation is heavy, (c) The use of an ^
ipproved dusting machine capable
>f covering the acreage for the appli
cation, acording to an approved plan 1
)f calcium arsenate meeting the gov
ernment specifications. (d) Under
reasonable favorable weather condi
Information in regard to machines
md calcium arsenate may be obtain-,
?d from the county agents.
The only profitable results so far se
cured in carefully conducted tests by
federal and state agencies were se
ared by the use of calcium arsenate
;n dust form properly applied.
Poison only when the air is calm
md the plants are moist, using from
live to seven pounds per acre for each
ipplication. When weevils are abun
iant when fruiting of cotton begins,
jne application may be made at that
time. Use no calcium arsenate that
iias not been examined by federal or
state authorities and pronounced sat
isfactory. The next application should
be made when the weevils have punc
tured from ten to fifteen per cent of
the squares, followed by two addi
tional applications four days apart.
Infestation counts should be made
frequently and can be made by any
farmer who follows the simple direc
tions furnished upon application. The
object is to keep the cotton thorough
ly dusted until the weevils are under
control. This may require a varying
number of applications of poison, de
pending on the season, and other con
ditions. If weevils should become suf
ficiently numerous to severely injure
the young bolls, one or two more ap
plications late in the season should be
In case of a heavy rain within
twenty-four hours after dusting, the
application should be repeated im
mediately. Always a carefully select
ed plot of cotton should be left un
poisoned for comparison with the
adjoining poisoned tract. This will
help to determine how much the yield
was increased by poisoning. .

Ten Reasons Why Hogs Should
Clemson College, July 3.-There
are ten good reasons why South Caro
lina fanners should grow more hogs
as a. part of their . general farming
scheme, according to E. G. Godbey,
Assistant Professor !of Animal Hus
bandry. They are as follows:
1. Hogs are prolific. They will
raise two litters per year and six or
more pigs per litter.
2. Returns come very quickly. The
sows will produce a litter at 12
months of age, and the pigs can he
most profitably marketed at 8 to 10
3. No other farm animal will pro
duce meat for a given amount of
4. A smaller amount of capital1 is
required for stock and equipment
than with other classes of farm ani
5. Hogs can find a place in any sys
tem of farming.
6. Pork is more easily cured than
are other meats.
7. Pork is the most ?nutritious
meat. It has a high protein and ener
by value, and the United States De
partment of Agriculture has recent
y determined that it is high in those
essential food factors called Vita
8. A large part of the hog ration
:an be made from waste products
is kitchen slops and spoiled grains.
They furnish a very profitable meth
)d of marketing skimmilk and but
9. Hogs help to establish and main
;ain a fertile soil, Approximately 80
)er cent of the fertilizing value of
heir feed is returned to the soil.
10. Hog production, if prope
nanaged, is a profitable business.
