Barker's Now Clover.
Those who travel along the road
between Walhalla and Westminster
will notice, just beyond the Barker
residence, an old cabin on the oppo
site side of tho road, with some big
plants growing around it, resem
p hiing weeds. This is a patch of sweet
clover-iMeliotus Alba. Some years
ago the seed wore sont here from
Oklahoma. Little more was thought
about tho plants. Now they are from
four to six feet tall, growing on a red
f gullied hillside.
The agronomist at Clemson. Prof
H lack well,, writes as follow.: regard
ing this sweet clo\et :
"it growa very aattsfaetorllj tu
most any part of the Piedmont soc
lion ul ?30nth Carolina, and is a
good soil-buildng crop. It is inocu
, lated with the same bactoria which
inoculates alfalfa. If inoculated it
is a valuable crop for poor hillsides
as a soil-builder.
"If it is planted thickly and cut at
the right time it makes a good qual
ity of hay. Howover, stock have to
j *f be taught to oat it, as very few stock
like sweet clover naturally. Once
horses and cattle are starved into
eating lt, they learn to Uko it. and
usuallly do well on it. The stems are
rather coarse if allowed to grow old
U of if too thinly seeded."
"I would advise you to encourage
the planting of it. By distributing
tho seed over pastures, waste ground
and gullied hillsides and roadsldos,
it will be worth much as a forerun
ner of alfalfa and as a soil-builder."
While In Anderson one day last
week Inspecting clover, alfalfa and
vetch demonstrations with the
county agent, Mr. Byars, we visited
the noted farm of Wade Drake. An
old field, which had formerly had
gullies in it \argo enough to bury a
small house In, was planted half in
corn and velvet, beans and half in
vetch. I asked Mr. Drake what an-?
swor he would give a farmer who
said ho would plant velvet beans in
his corn, hut lt pulled the corn down.
Mr. Drake answered. "I would get
rid of the corn." which shows how
firmly he believes in the great value
of velvet benns ns a soil builder.
