Thu Dollin- Mark.
Tho dollar mark is the sign of a
successful farmer. As you go along
the highways look for the signs in
the green holds spread out over tho
hills and valleys. And what ls tho
dollar mark of success? lt ls repre
sented by tho sign $ formed itt tho
Holds by tho two stalks of oats rep
resenting tho two perpendicular
lines and HAIRY VETOH twining
about tho oats. How many will have
"dollar marks" on their farms tho
coming yoar?
In tho summor time tho dollar
mark of tho fields ls represented by
tho running velvet benn, which
twines about tho com In summor
Just ns tho vetch twines about the
oats or rye in winter.
"Muscio Shoals" looms up in print
nearly every day. As a part of the
great plans for? its operation tho
chief plan of interest to tho farmer
la the milking of fertilizer, chiclly
hy tho' oleclrlcal process of obtain
ing nitrogen from the AIR.
Every farmer can havo "a little
?Muscle Shoals" on his farm. The
velvet bean, cowpea and soy bean
will do just what is planned for Mus
cle Shoals-lt will talco the nitrogen
out of tho air for uso of tho plants
and the onrlchmont of his soil. In
the year 1888 Hollriegol and Wll
far'h, of Germany, actually discov
ered and demonstrated that certain
bacteria living on tho roots of leg
umes (beans, peas, clovers and tho |
vetcres) use free nitrogen from tho
soil air and givo lt to tho host plants
on which they live. This was a re
markable disc >very which should be
used by every farmer to tho tulles*,
extent, especially in building up run
down land in this year of specula
tion in regard to boll weevil damage
A fertile soil means a better pock
etbook for tho farmer. Tho most
essential elements in a fertile soil
are humus and nitrogen.
lt is a good year to star', some
"Muscle Shoals factories" on tho
poor or medium lands.
They Grow Itt
Dresden Smith, Deputy Clerk of
Court, says that when lt comes to
growing crimson clover ho is ahead
of Mayor Brown, and we'll have to
hand lt to him. Ho is some clove*
grower-whether or not his neats
all other fields in the county.
Right along with him ranks W. H.
Glnzonor, of Koowee School District,
who has a Ano field of crimson clover
this sonsou.
But when it comes to vetch and
bur clover all hats havo to be pulled
to <3. W. Bauknlght, of Walhalla, for
ho is the pioneer in this line. All
of his land is covered with one or
the other of these two nitrogen
gathering crqps.
Ocon?o is developing good alfalfa
mon right along. Ono of tho most
outstanding successes of tho yoar is
tho flold of Larry Marott's at Fair
Play, whoso Hold was sown last fall.
John Brandt's field, near Walhalla,
which did not look so woll lust year,
Is doing much better this season.
Bottled inoculation did not fill tho
bill last year.
R. L. Brewer, of Friendship, start
ed off with late planting, too much
manure and grass seod in his alfalfa
last year, but it has taken on now
lifo this yoar and is making up for
lost time.
Try Somo Sudan Grass.
The man who would like to "pull
fodder," but has running volvot
beans to plant in his com should get
his "fodder" elsewhere. The best
feed of this class of roughage ls
Sudan grass. Its quality is about
tho same as Johnson grass or tim
othy. It is easy to cut, handle and
cure, and will make a yield of from
one to eight tons of cured hay por
acre. About 20 to 30 pounds of seed
per acre will be needed for broad
casting, or about 8 or 10 pounds for
drilling in rows 20 to 30 Inches
apart. If sown early, and on land
that would make extra good corn,
two or three cuttings may bo ob
tained. Geo. H. Briggs,
County Agent.
