The extension horticulturists aro
now visiting the commercial grape
vineyards around Trlon, N. C., get

growers that will t?o givon those who

number of farmers from Plckens,
Greenville nnd Anderson will also
bo present at Clemson for the trip
through tho vineyards and the moot
In Oconeo county there are now
several who aro shipping grapes lo

Seneca, being tho largest, with Cal

Tho most wonderful small, vine

old vineyard, gcnorally called "The
Dutchman's Vineyard," which ls to

Figures obtained from several
vineyards during tho past few years
by tho horticulturists indicate an
average profit per acre of about two
hundred dollars. This, of course,
would be less where rot ls allowed

One field examined for boll weevil

Casey, examined at four corners,
showed tho following percentages:
36 per cent,'1 1 per cent, 9 per cent
and 2 1 per cent, thus giving an aver
age of 19 per cent. Both of theso
men aro using dusters, applying cal
cium arsenate. Mr. Martin had not
used tho machine previously, while
Mr. Casey had put on two dustings,
being interrupted by rains. They are
both applying tho first three dust
ings according to schedule now.
M. W. Gibson, of the South- Union
section, had the heaviest infestation
of any so far examined. The field
examined showed punctured squares
as follows: 58 per cent, 27 por cent

In tho Townvlllo Bectlon four In

fields of W. O. Prater, with those re

a field previously dusted, which had
shown tho most early In the season.
In another field 26 per cont and 12
por cent wero found. This latter field

that you do not KNOW where you

you aro doing. In this count only
squares aro examined, nothing after
tho bloom sheds being examined. A
square that has been damaged either
by a foedlng or egg puncture (is
counted. All squares on a stalk ore
examined, and other stalks in the
Kamo section, until the 100 squares

Sow Hur Clover Now.
Bur clover, a soil builder of dis
tinction in Nowberry county, and
scattered over tho Piedmont section,
should bo sown now In caso il has
not already been sown. It is differ
ent from tho other clovors in that
lt ls practically always sown in tho
bur, sown earlier lu tho season, and
requires much more seo'd to make a
etnrt than other clovers. It reseeds
Itsolf whenever allowed to make seed
In the spring, theso seed lying around
and coming up thick enough in tho
fall for a good stand, usually.
It is best to start with a small
place for a seed patch, usually on
good soil, or by mixing manure with
the seeds, using at least six bushels
of seed to the acre. These seed may
bo bought from farmers listed in tho
"Weokly Market Bulletin," published
(and distributed free from Columbia,
or from advertisements appearing In
your local paper, your farm paper,
otc. No inoculation is needed if tho
seed are bought In the bur, as tho
burs always carry soil sufficient to
Watch the Soys Grow.
C. W. Baunkight, of Walhalla, who
likes as much as any one In the coun
ty to soo good forngo crops grow,
and grows them on his farms, now
has as fine a crop of soy beans as any
ono In the .county, perhaps.
Between corn rows, with a few
plants In tho row with tljo corn, they
make a solid mass about four foot
high, the fine, slender, droopitlg
vines of the Otoo-tan reaching up
and bringing down tho precious ni
trogen of tho atmosphere, and they
form a picture hard to duplicate.
This variety is bettor suited for hay
purposes than others, having slen
der branches, which do not tangle
like peas, and of vigorous growth.
The Biloxl variety is also planted,
this variety being more Uko the
.Mammoth Yellow, being upright in
growth, of heavier stem and shorter
branches, with moro seed, which is
produced in a manner easy to gather
with a soy boan harvester, lt has
tho advantage of holding seed better
than tho Mammoth Yellow, accord
ing to Mr. Bnuknlght.
This method of planting the corn
about G to 7 feet between rows
and spacing it thicker in tho rows,
having a row of soys down the mid
dle, producta a good crop of corn as
well aa soya, according to Mr. Bali lc-,
night' and is a method which should
iii: .n universal practico,
W. T. Hubbard, on tho Seneca
Richland road, and Jas. H. Darby, on
tho Walhalla-Seneca road, have soy
beans planted along the roadside
which may bo observed by all who
pass. Some of the farmers who were
observed hauling hay last week lo
foed mules to make cotton to feed
weevils should pay moro attention to
all kinds of forngo crops, both sum
mer and winter, and their bank ac
counts would be larger.
