Homo Weevil Counts Higher.
Tho holt woevil continues to In
croaso in spots, and in nearly all
Heids therd was a groat difference in
percentages'in different parts of tho
In the Falrflold section W. L.
Miller had 28 per cent and S. H.
Snead 31 per cent in the heaviest
infested parts of the Hold.
In tho Ebenezer section H. A.Wood
had 20 per cont in his worst Hold.
John Cannon had no damage as far!
as could bo observed in one Mold.
This fleld joined rows with another,
owned by another party, who had
considerable infestation. This phe
nomena ls reported as frequently ob
served in older weevil territory, and
is a very important reason for hav
ing check plots where a poiBonlug
experiment ls being conducted, eo
that a heavily infested fleld which is
poisonod may not be compared on
an equal footing with a fleld which
has little or no infestation to start
with, or vice versa.
In the Keowcc school district J.
A. White had 28 per cent In ono?,
hold examined, L. Li. Sloan 16 per
cont, and J. L. Kell 2 2, 12 and 5 per
cent, averaging 13 per cent for one
Hold. Mr. Kell plans to start soino
Ih the Salem section W. M. Sloan
had about 2 per cent and F. R. Chap
man about tho samo In tho Acids ex
amined. Most of tho young bolls and
squares found on tho ground In this
section had fallen In consequence of
natural shedding, tho long dry spell'
following a long wet spell of weather.
In other sections there has been
a great deal of shedding of late, and
several have mis'akeu this for wee
vil damage also.
W. L. Veiner had two fields of
variable percentages, running to a
high percentage In ono fleld down to
a 10 per cont infestation in another
field. Both were dusted several
times, but no check plot was left for
comparison, lt was stated.
K. W. Marett, of tho Marett Farm
and Seed Company, is using a num
ber of hand dusters and a mule-back
duster on practically all of tho com
pany's farm, an^ states that ho be
lieves fchey are holding tho weevil In
check to a fair extent.
The dry, hot weather of lalo has
helped lo kill some of tho yoong
worm stages In ibo squares, thus
chocking the increase, but not keep
ing (he lhere i from steadily
it tntlug higher, however.
Pasture Specialist Coining.
More dows and more hogs, and an
Increase In cream shipping, always
follow In tho weevils' steps, but
ahead of moro livestock must come
better pastures and more forage for
any profit to bo derived from thom.
A cotton farmer is normally a
grass-killing man, who is usually at
war with grass. With tho coming oi
of moro stock, moro luxuriant grasses
and clovers must be encouraged and
fenced in for moro economical feed
S. L. Jeffords, specialist in pas
tures and forage crops, will be in

Wednesday, Aug. 21st, 22d and 23d,
and from his wide experience, gained
in several States, will havo valuable
Information along these lines.

What Homo Farmers Aro Doing.
John Brandt, who conducts a dalry
farm near 'Walhalla, gives us tho
following data on his alfalfa as of
date Aug. 1st:
Two acres wore sown In tho fall
of 1920. In 1921 ho cut it four times.
In 1922, up to Aug. 1st, ho has cut
lt throo times, getting seven, six and
five loads, respectively, at tho three
cuttings. Those wero two-horse loads
-about ono thousand pounds of tho
cured hay por load. Ho will got an
othor cutting this year, and roports
that ho is well ploasod with his al
K. W. Marott is preparing to sow
sovoral acres, W. H. Glazonor 1 %
aero, and J. H. Mt Whltmiro two
ncros of alfalfa. They aro turning
under somo pons now, and liming.
Arthur Brown, of Walhalla, has
started a hog farm on his placo nonr
Picket Post. Ho has ten brood sows
and is now ongaged in fencing In
separate ?grazing pastures and pre
paring to sow* rape, oats, rye, clovers,
etc., tor grazing. Hp has his herd
evenly divided, having, four Poland
China sows and four Duroc-Jorsoy
sows, all of good breeding, obtained
from reliable breders and from doni
'F. R. Chapman, of Salem, states
that he is delighted with tho Mung
beans he ls pidnung this yoar. In
four weoks, on moderate soil, with
slight fertilization, 'hey average
about 18 inches high, In good, vigor
ous condition, and havo tho nodtfles
and nltrogep-gatherlng bacteria oiiij
tho roots. Many persons eu route to
Camp Jocassee stop to admire the
M. Wv Gibson, of SoiCh Union; is
growing a good quantity of these
same Mung beans this yoar, and so
Is K. W. Marett, of Westminster. The
latter has a ten-acre field on the
Westminster-Seneca road planted In
these benns, and they are Bhowlng
up well ou a red hill.
Soil building is tho great funda
mental In successful farming. Sooner
or lator all farmers must be good
soil-buildors. Tho other class-the
soil-robbers-will bo put out of busi
ness, and that very shortly. Plan
now for good acreages of vetch and
clover this fall.
'P. A. Brown, of tho Koo woo sec- '
tion, has a lino field of late corn j
planted where a vetch crop was j
turned under this spring. Two hun- j
dred pounds of acid phosphate alone
Was applied to this corn, according to
Mr. Brown, and yot, after two weeks'
drouth, it had not lost ono blt of Its
green, growing color, and looked as
is two hundred pounds .of nitrato of
soda had been applied. Cane and
peas following crimson clover in one
torrace, and vetch and oats in an
other, did not show any difference,
but both showed tho good effects of
the preceding nitrogen - gathering
This demonstration bears out N.
E. Winters' assertions that humus
and nitrogen through summer and
winter legumes will work wonders
with our soils. Winters, "tho Billy
Sunday of Agriculture," will be in
our county Sopt. 5th, at Westminster
and South Uinon; Sept. Gth at Fair
view and Keowee, afternoon and
night meetings. Great crowds aro
expected at these meetings, and near
by'demonstrations will bo visited.
