Dear Slr: I read with interest your
every suggestion appearing In The

helping tho farmer. I have read
Farmers* Bulletin 1121, to which you
call attention, and there are many
others for tho asking from which

yours with reference to co-operative"
buying of fertilizers. In writing this
I am prompted by the suggestion of
co-operative buying of barbed wire

tons. The wire ls not bright1,, at least |
the samples were not, but pam satis

SHIPPING SWEET POTATOES OUT
Of South 'CferoUraa--Tho Marketing
Agents Giving Thought to 'Matter.
Clemson ?CoUe?r 'March ! 2&..
South Carolina Ts now becoming]
known in tne.svrettt. potato markets
of the'.country, and the extensiou
service marketing agents are giving I
their time and efforts toward send
ing out a graded product, and' that I
well packed, ventilated and loaded
for either a short or a long haul.
To date this season sixteen caral
of dweet potatoes have moved ont of j
this State to Eastern, Northern and
Western markets. Some of these
bavo gone as far Wost a? the Stato
of Iowa, and soveral have gone to
points in New York State, reports
F. lt. Harkoy, tho extension market
Most of those shipments have boen
made by members of t/e South Car
olina Sweet Potato Association and
hate boen sold by the Southern
States Produce Distributors Co., of
Columbia, which company has sign
ed a sales contract with tho Sweet
Potato Association. Potatoes ship
ped by members of tho association
bear the brnnd ""Sugarspuds," South
Carolina Sweet Potato Association,
Main Office, Columbia, S. C."
Tho grading and loading of one erl
more cars at each shipping point has
been made a demonstration of pro?
por grading and loading by an ox-?
tension service market agent, and
in several instances a great saving
ha? been effected for the shipper.
Sweet potatoes are a very perish
able ^product, and Ifave never re
ceived in this State the proper hand
ling to which they are entitled, since
they had not been shipped from this
State in ear lots until last season. It
Is, therefore, necessary that every
shipper make use of the experience
and a ?ssl tance offered by thc exton.

THE AMERICAN FERTILIZER O
TO SAY AUOUT FERTILI!
"WhRt South karolina farmers
"An 8-3-3 and an 8-4-4 fortllizer
are general favorites in South Caro
lina, though some others are used
with success. The applications of
the best farmers vary from 600 to
1,000 pounds per acre, and the in
crease from 1,500 to 2,000 pounds
of need cotton per acre.
"Typical reports from South Caro
lina farmers are aa folows:
"A. G. Clarkson, Wateree, uses
600 poundH of a 10-4-2 broadcast
before planting, and applies 100
pounds of nitrate of soda as a top
dressing. Ho gets 1,500 pounds of
seed coton per acre.
"R.. HL Bvisor, Summerton, usu
ally applies 500 to 800 pounds of an
8-3-3 fertilizer under the crop and
uses 100 to 200 pounds of nitrogen
ous top-dress, applied half June 1st
and halt July 1st. His yield is about
1,500 pounds of seed cotton per acre.
"P. B. Day, Jr., Trenton, applies
700 pounds of an 8-3-3 In furrow
bed; top-dresses with nitrogen at
the rate of 150 pounds, applied half

1,500 and more pounds of seed cot
ton per acre.
"James S. Culbreth, Johnston,
uses-an- 8-3-3 fertilizer, nppllyng 600
to 1,000 pounds fn the drill before
planting; side-dresses with nitrate
of soda and kninit when cotton is 6

"Wade H. Herring, Marion, uses
a 9-4-2, and applies 800 pounds and
100 pounds of nitrogenous top
dresses. He gets 1,500 pounds . of
seed' coton per acre.
YOu will notice that thoso farm
ers live in sections of the State whore
the- seasons aro* longer than oura,
the summer i's earlier and tho fall is
hiter, which gives the cotton plant
more timo to- matare. This 8-3-3
