Erutt Growers' Mooting.
Friday, Nov. 17th, at H a. m.,<in
tl? o school bu il dla g at Walhalla,
there will bo hold a. most important
meeting for orcbardists and pros
pective 'U'chnrdistn of Oconeo county.
Ideas obtained from tho Apple
Growors' Association of Cornella,
Ga?, Viii bo prosentod to those at tho
meeting, and it is hoped that a local
growers' association wil: be formed
at this meeting. A spirit of helpful
co-operation will thus bo doveloped
early, so that whon all tho nov/ apple
orchards como into bearing there
. shall bo a strong co-operative asso
ciation ready to help tho growers in
tho salo of their crops as well asith?
purchase of all necessary supplies.
Instructive and interesting talks
viii be made by Messrs.. George P.
Hoffmann and A. E. Schilletter, hor
ticulturists, of Clemson College Ex
And not tho least In importance
will be the grouping of a large co-op
erative order of apple trees as well
as general homo orchard soloctions.
Several thousand troos aro expected
to be ordered through tho new asso
ciation at a saving of many dollars
to prospectivo orchardists. Cash will
bo required deposited in bank sub
ject to draft with tho orders. Every
. one should be on time.
Wreovll Getting Hough roatmont.
From tho looks of many "cotton
fields hoing plowed and stalks turnod
under, and oats, rye, clover, vetch,
etc., being sown in! abundance' over
Oconeo county, it looks as though Mr.
Boll Weevil is going to have a hard
timo finding wlntor hotels.
This is tho most important step to
ho taken In the boll weevil fight. A
authorities and practical men agree
on this, and it should be n source of
happiness to tho cotton growors of
this section that tho woather has so
favored thom lately.
Let the good work koop on. Con-1
corteel, neighborly action now against!
tho pest will moan that next year
these same communities and farms
will profit by tho cleanlng-up work
this fall. *
There ls no single weapon against
the weevil that will always bring
success, but by using all the best
proven methods it has boon shown
over tho South in many instances
that cotton can bo produced with
profit on a limited acreage WHERE
THERE IS A WILL to do so. The
most profitable light ls started with
f early fall destruction of stalks,,
plowing them under and adding to
the humus of the soil.
Plenty of Corn.
It is estimated that G. T. Hawkins,
of the Madison section, will produce
over 2,000 bush'ds of corn In bis
bottom at tho junction of Tugaloo
river and Changa creek. Many fine
stacks of hay aro also to bo soon
there. A tractor has been of great
bonelll on this farm.
Bur Clover Everywhere.
On Ervin Spencer's farm near Ta
bor bur clover has been scattered
ovor almost tho entire farm, in cot
ton middles, in tho rows with corn
and velvet beans, in the garden and
everywhere. Mr. Spencer believes
that anybody can havo nitrogen fac
tories both summer and winter nt a
vory small expenso whero sood aro
saved on tho farm. Nearly twice as
much corn was producod in one ter
race whore bur clover was plowed
under as whero no clover was grown
tho preceding year. Tho 9 0-day vol-?
vet boan mado much hotter growth
than tho Osceola on this farm this
soason and produced over twice as
much seed. Volvot beans In summer
and bur clover in winter will soon
solve his nitrogen problems, and
with some acid phosphate and lime
stone profitable crops will bo pro
duced as his soil becomes richer and
Such was Wado Drako's experi
ence, oxcopt that votch was used In
elond of bur clover in winter. Thero
should bo sovornl "Wade Drakes" In
our county In a few yoars, as soveral
farmers in tho county are spreading
legumes nil ovor their farms.
In this same section S. D. Hunter
rivals Mr.?, Spencer in tho acreage
given to summer and winter log
unies, Mr. Huntor being a plonoer
grower of vetch, crimson clover and
bur clover. Geo. R. Briggs,
