THE ALDRICH SYSTEM.
Gather lu Hay and Hominy Between
the Rows of Cotton Ls< Hore Co op
emt I on at Home in the Field
With Cotton, Corn pad
Farmers, don't trust too much to
others to help you, make an o lib ri each
and every man of you to help your
selves, try a fevr acres on the Aldrich
aystem of growing two rows of cotton
alternating with two rows of corn.
There is nothing to lose in giving this
plan a fair trial. We are sure that
the two rows of early corn will not
materially injure the two rows of cot
ton. We have been watching this
system of planting two rows of cotton
and two rows of corn since this plan
iirst came into notice, and ha ve come
to the conclusion that there must be
something in it, or about twenty good'
men we know of have been doing somo
good lieing about this thing. At least
four of our neighbors, as well aa our
selves, are to try several acron on this
"Aldrich plau" this season. Some
how cr other we have got it into our
heads that there may bu too much cot
ton on hand next fall, and in case
"something drops" we hope to have
more food tor both mac and beast, and
not trust to others for our feast.
Our plans are as follows: Where our
lands have already been fertilized nud
Erepared for cotton, take a large don -
le Jack plow and throw down the
whole cotton bed, with ano furrow,
in two rows and plant early corn in
bottom of these furrows, covering
corn with small double-foot plow,
then leave next two rows for cotton,
continuing the whole t?eld . i this
Elan. This early corn will mature and
e out o? growth by the time when
cotton needs all help possible to put on
a good crop of fruit and retain it. At
?he last plowing of the corn rows wc
are to sow inoculated cow-peas in
theao corn rows ahead of the plows.
By this plan an acre package of nitro
culture will inoc?late two aerea of
land. Of course, we will not be able
this season to inoculate all our peas,
but we will do BO as much aa possible.
Quite a number of practical farmers
report that they have made as much
cotton to the acre under the Aldrich
plan as they did by planting every row
in cotton and have the corn and peas
as a profit to the credit of this plan.
Now, farmers, be honest td everybody,
cut a good cumber of acres on tbiB
plan and let us hear from you.
Yes, we may say to those who have
cotent' theiracreago and are feeling
bad about it that this Aldrich plan
will give them a good opportunity to
relieve their conscience and at the
same time give them a splendid chanee
to make a profitable cotton crop at
most any old price and have more corn,
peas and fodder that bring ?rood prices
all the while and never fails to bring
good, fat hogs, horses and cows.
About book farming. It has been
quite awhile since we heard much
about tho once lonely fallow called
*'book. farmer," but since we have been
nnttis? the subject or rho new discov
1 ery of inoculating lands with nitrogen
producing bacteria before the people,
every now and then some fellow has
some smart things: to say about "these
visionary book fanners!" But as this
name cannot be applied to ono that bas
ditched in water up to his knees and
led teams of hands days and weeks at
a stretch with either the plow-or hoe,
we take no acception? tc this accusa
tion but fling it back into the face of
every one that uses commercial fertil
izers and call the whole army of cot
ton growers who use commercial fer
tilizers ? more or lets a great mass of
? Thia may 'or may not be to their
credit. The credit resta with the suc
cessful parties only.
Tho older cotton growers that were
at it during the latter part of the co's
may be able to recall the many funny
remarks then made about Dr. Rave
ooll's discovery of how to convert th?
black rocks on the coast into a guano
of such magic streegth^that 150 pounds
or SOO pounds would go as far and pro
duce os Kood results in a cotton field
na 10 tOSO loads of barnyard manure.
Thia discovery was then reckoned as a
kind of scientific, theoretical, visionary
book-farmer's dream or night mare
that might do for the Broad street far
mers of Charleston, but it would never
?work out these wonders on tba fields
of the practical farmer.
What do we see today on this line?
.TJast year the farmers ox South Caro
lina used 427,000 tons of commercial
fertilizers at an. approximate cost of
tho enormous sum of $7,200,000.
The younger notion of cotton grow?
era in our ?tate have grown into this
kind of thoughtless, drunken habit of
book farming until they no more now
think of planting cotton without
bought fertilizer than a besotted dram
drinker would think of taking ? meal
without his dram. Both aro habits of
doubtful good results ic many cases.
Since writing the foregoing we'nave
had an interview with several farmers
not far from Pendleton that tried this
Aldrich system last season, and some
of them will plant their whole i crop
thia year on this plan.
8. Lu McCarley, J. W. Durham abd
O. Brock are among the farmers who
have been successful with this system
of mixed crop?. These farmer* cr
pkds Ihs? ikv corn roots feed near the
surface of tho soil and the cotton roots
go down deeper for their main sup
port. Now ibero is good solid sense
and reason in ibis, and another good
reason for the remarkable resulto ia
that wide spaces between the double
rows give more air apace and sunlight,
which is ot groat advantage to the
I ?ni???ujt o? b?th corn and cotton.
