Weak and diseased limbs should
not bo allowed io remain on fruit
trees during tho summer, Bark bee
tles attack weak and slow-growing
limbs and finally destroy the entire
treo. Cut ilie limbs out and burn
them.
Cultivate the young and bearing
orchards throughout tho summer
months unless they aro to bo planted
in some leguminous crop in June.
Peas or soy beans should be planted
bec ween tho rows of fruit trees and
the vines worked into the soil with
a disk harrow in early fall. Two ta
blespoonfuls of nitrato of soda ap
plied around the fruit trees one and
two years old will be very beneficial.
Scatter the nitrate of soda in a circle
aboi ? IS Inches from tho body of the
tree uni work it into the first few
inches of soil by hoeing.
?Rub off all suckers or sprouts that
appear on tho trunk of tho treo so
a.; to concentrate the entiro growth
Into thc permanent branches. Sum
mer pruning of newly set fruit trees
should be done during Juno. This
consists of remov?.ig surplus branch
es. After the yoting peach trees have
made a growth of 15 inches the tops
of ibo branches that are to be per
manent should be pinched out so ns
to force tho limbs to branch. This
will do away with tho necessity of
severe pruning next fall and will
cause the trees to form a larger and
more symmetrical head.
(?rapes and apples should ho spray
ed with Bordeaux mixturo every two
or threo weeks for the control of dis
eases which attack them and cause
the fruit to rot.

THE SWEET POTATO INDUSTltY.
Maximum Production of High Qual
ity Potatoes EssentlaL
Clemson College, Juno 10.-Few
crops are so well adapted to. South
Carolina soil and can ho so easily
worked into tho present farming sys
tem as the moist flesh Southern sweet
potato. However, the 'methods of
glowing and harvesting, curing and
maikoting as practiced in former
years are not acceptable in commer
cializing and establishing sweet po
luto growing as an industry. South
Carolina now produces annually ap
proximately 10,000,000 bushels of
sweet potatoes, or ten per cent of ibo
total annual production of the po
tato producing States of tho United
States, but South Carolina puts on
tho commercial markets rather less
Dian ten per cent of her production.
The commercial markets, mainly
Hie Northern markets, are accepting
only tlie highest quality product from
the storage houses and green or sum
mer shipments. Therefore the con
suming power of the lasting and eco
nomical market is limited to very
early summer shipments and to tho
highest quality storage house pota
toes rather than those potatoes kept
in tho old-fashioned dirt bills or
banks. Hence growers and prospec
tive growers of sweet potatoes must
realize Hie vital importance of qual
ity production, together with the ne
cessity of marketing locally and feed
ing to livestock the off grades, for
just as much expense is involved in
the marketing of a low-grade product
as in marketing ono of the highest
quality,
A profitable market may be had
for off-grades by supplying the farm
needs and local markets and by feed
ing to livestock. In short, at pres
ent profitable sweet potato growing
might be said to be contingent upon
combining this as an industry with
other diversified branches of agricul
ture-small dalry herds, hog rais
ing, beef cattle and horses and mules.
Extension Bulletin 52, Tho Sweet
Potato Industry, has just been pub
lished to give working information
on tho growing and handling of the
sweet potato as a commercial crop.
It may he had from tho Fxtenslon
Service, Clemson College, S. C., or
from County Agents.

TH KY WANTED A CHANGE.
(Polk County, Ala., Record.)
We wore gottlug. two-fifty a bushol
for wheat,
And corn at a dollar six bits can't
bo beat,
While cotton at sixty made pocket
books "sw,eot"
Dut wo "wanted a chango"
AND WE GOT IT.
Our horses and cuttle then Ulled us
with pride,
While our hogs and our shoep rode
high on the tide
Of prosperity's wave, which was thou
nation-wide-.
Dut wo "wanted a chango"
AND WE GOT IT.
Now wo'ro getting a quarter for corn.
It's so cheap
We burn lt for fuel. Our cattle and
sheep
Wo cifti't sell their hides, so we bury
them deep
For we "wanted a chango"
AND WE COT IT.
Thc working man then got his eight
"bucks" a day;
He had plenty of work, and some
time to play;'
His family was happy, contented and
gay
.But ho "wanted a chang?"
AND HE GOT IT.
The railroader prospered; his wages
were raised;
And so were the fanners' and drivers
of drays.
lt might have gone on to the end of
their days-.
But they "wanted a change"
AND THEY COT IT.
Now in hunting a joh is their time
mostly spent;
Tliey will work for half wages, for
they must pay rent;
Their children are hungry, and they
haven't a oem
But they "wanted a chango"
AND THEY COT IT.
Mr. Wilson was then working early
and late
His whole lime was given to matters
of State;
He "broke down in harness"-tho
load was too great
But we "wanted a change"
AND "WE GOT IT.
Now all wo can read of is "golf" and
"vacation,"
While nothing ls done for the need
of the nailon, ?>
And Congress talks on to tho end of
creation
But we "wanted a change"
AND WE GOT IT.
They tell us "r?action from war," the
old dears;
(Tho war has been over for moro
than three years) ;
Still millions go hungry, in rags and
in tears
But we "wanted a change"
AND Wi: GOT IT.
They talk about this, and they talk
about that -
Of "bonus" and "taxes" and tariff
that's flat,
But nothing is dono but put New
berry "pat"
For he paid for his seat-?
AND HE GOT IT.
And nov; when election time comes
round again,
Will the voters be willing to still
wear tho chain
Of tho G. O. P. gang, with their
promises vain
Will we want to change back?
BOY, YOU SAID IT.
