THE Cole Cotton Planter ia simple ; it has no chain,
crank, or lever. The force feed wheel and atirrero are fas
tened solidly on the eteelaadeon which the drive wheels
are featehe^. It thus has full motion and distributes the
seed evenly without skips, or bunches. The coulter brings
ont. all clods and trash and the steel, fenders throw same to
each side, leaving a fine smooth seed bed; The long steel
?wordi presses out a smooth V shaped furrow of even depth
and tba seed are bound to lie in a straight line. This saves

The Tricks of the Trade and the Fer*
i tilizer Business.
Etceutly there waa sent out to the
press from Columbia a piece of news
about the amount of fertilizers beiug
used by tho farmers of this State, that
ia calculated to mislead some of the
farmers, and others, by not telling tho
whole truth about the increased sales
of fertilizer tags recently. Now, it
seems that theso fellows have not told
the public that this increase of eales of
tags dot? not indicate that more fer
tiliz?la are being used for cotton, and
that this increase may be accounted
for by a change in the law, requiring
all cotton seed meal to bo tagged,
whether it be used for feeding ur fer
Since the fertilizer companies can
redeem all tags not used, here is a
splendid opportunity for these fellowB
to lend a helping band to their neigh
bors, the "cotton beare," by purchas
ing alargo amount of tags, which has its
weight in ho'ding cotton down. Thia
is education in this business.
It waa A. T. Stewart, the famous
dry goods merchant in New York, that
did in his early business have a lot of <
fine coaches and well-dressed women
to make a regular business of visiting
his establishment daily for the ex
press purpose of demonstrating to the
fashionable people that his place of
business was the place for theso people
to trade. This waa one man's way ot
increasing his trade; this is educa
A large farmer, in order to advertise
hie anccess, Btanding and a reputation
as a large planter, loads 25 or ?0 ba!CB
or more cotton on a train of wagons
and will move them about the streets
of his town a whole day in order to
show the people that he lian the "real
stuff." The difference is, that the far
mer or common merchant exhibits
what he has, while the other two are
driving ap something in a "shady"
way that they do now > "??seas. This
is another kind of education.
Something over thirty years ago I
found a lot of old burnt nails and iron
in some fertilizers that we were using.
AA the etui: had CUBE over $80 per
ton, and I did not believe our soil
could "digest" metalice, we traced the
thing back to in? factory, where we
found them buying ashes from all
over the country and towns to oupply
this ingredient in this brand of goods;
while we farmers at home had not yet
learned that we were throwing away
our aeheB at home and buying them at
the rate of $80 per ton ana freight
This waa paying high for education
on the business Bide of farming.
flow many farmers are thereto-day
that aro letting their wood ashes go to
waste on the farm and buying their
equivalent in commercial fertilizers at
the rate of $10 to $18 per ton?
One of tho moat amuaing cases ol
educating the farmer on the fertilizer
subject, occurred only a few years ago,
when by accident a farmer (who owned
a email flock of sheep) discovered cow
end then in his guano a few little
round balla that bad escaped the
crusher in the factory. Now this far
mer considered himself a good judge
of the qualities of fertilizer and in
variably would insist on testing and
smelling all goods before be waa satis
fled about its qualities.' A little in
vestigation of those usually umform
nodules of guano aroused the ol&afen's
suspicions and ho called out to blason:
"John, this looks like eheep-bails, sud
smells like rn aiton and it taataa Uko a
sheep pen." By tracing this back it
was discovered that this fertilizer
factory bad imported a lot of nitroge
nous material from a sheep shed in
Ohio to supply the nitrogen in his fer
tiliser. The' goods analyzed alright,
but the thing that stuck to thiB farmer,
was that he was actually paying $25
per ton for commercial fertilizers that
was : shipped in here from Ohio, vrhile
he allowed his home-made material to
I go to waste.
1 The Farmers' Educational and Co
op?rative Union has foi- one of its ob
! jeots the teaching of each other lessons
of the business side of farming as well
ai science farming. Now, in order to.
be a teacher (all practical. Successful,
I good teachers) cn farming? it is not
necessary for a practical teacher that
be should know Greek, Latin and rhet
oric, nor how to workout problems
on the blackboard. It is better for him
to toll bis neighbor how to work out
these problem B bf farming on the land
with the boo and plow, etc.
