In regarding the testing of cattle for

This is dono so that tho greates'.

advantage of the work at one time
while the Slate veterinarian is there.
All cattlo on a man's place are
supposed to bo listed for test. Those
who have less than ten head of cat

tho nearest neighbor who has tho
largest number of cattle, in order to
facilitate tho work of the vetorinnr- '

grade cow is rarely appraised at over
$")0, while a pure-bred ls rarely ap
praised at over $100. After tho value
of the carcass is determined by tho
veterinarian, the owner will receive

About Sowing Whont.
Rocently a lotter was received
from a prominent planter of tho
county asking that an artlclo on
sowing wheat bo published In tho
pnpors. This Is very sound advlco,
quoting from his lottor: "With tho
monaco of tho bool woovlls, with
their advance plckots alroady in our
flolds, and with tholr army of untold
million? not many miles distant, and
with monoy from cotton or corn an
uncertain thing, we should bo sure'
to make our flour at home." j
Quoting from the agronomist of]
the experiment station at Clemson
In regard to wheat in the Piedmont |
section, ho states:
"The proper time to seed wheat
tn this section is tho earliest date
possible so that tho wheat comes up
after frost, as that will avoid dam
age by the Hessian fly, and is usually
early enough to give good results.
"It is advisable to sow with a drill,
although broadcasting gives good re
sults usually. If the land has no
crop on it now it should be worked
Into a firm, smooth seed bed. Most I
wheat in this State is planted in cot
ton or corn middles, however. A
throe-tube drill is usually used in
tho cotton middles
"A fertile soil should bo selected
and 200 pounds acid phosphate ap-1
plied per aero at timo of sowing, !
and barnyard manure used on thin
soils. In the spring top-dress with 7 5
to 100 pounds nitrate of soda per
"The variotles which have given
best results here (experiment sta
tion) are: Alabama Blue Stem and
Leap's Prolific and Dietz Mediter
ranean.. Wheat should grow well on
any of the well drained, good up
land soils. Four to six pecks per acre
ls usually required In the drill, and
moro for broadcasting."
Following the wheat a good crop of
cowpeas and cane can be grown for
According to NT. E. Winters, exten
sion agronomist of Clemson, two tons
of ground limestone can be applied
to a well prepared seed bed before
sowing the wheat and harrowed In,
(ben some acid phosphate, and In I
the early springt, last of February),:
ten pound!;- of red clover scattered
over the wheat and scratched In j
After tho wheat ls cut Ibero should
bo two cuttings of red clover bay.

farm in Oklahoma lasi year.
Inquiries are coming in at present
about making lawns. There ls no
vory definite data to go by from the
experiment station, but certain clo
vers and grasses have been known
to do well on fertile soil, - seeded
proporly and with a good season.
Some of tho lawn mixtures adver
tised by tho seedsmen may do well
under certain conditions, but these
mixtures usually have about twice
as many kinds of seed In them ns will
For lawns that will be partly shad
ed, fertile, limed and well prepared,
tho following mixture may be mndo:
For one acre-Four pounds whito
Dutch clovor, ton pounds Kentucky
blue grass, threo pounds Itnllan ryo
grass, threo pounds peronnlal ryo
grass. Total, 20 pounds.
In tho spring sow over this and
scratch In threo pounds pespnlum
dllatum grass seed per acre. In the
sunny spots, whore tho dry, hot dnys
of summer will do harm, probably it
will be necessary early in the sum
mer to put in some Bermuda roots;
?as Bermuda will stand more dry,
bot weather than anything else.
Two tons of ground limestone
should be cut in with a disc harrow
on the well prepared seed bod, and
then 4 00 pounds acid phosphate per
acre broadcaster and lightly harrow
