Encouraging to Farmers.
Some time back the Farmers' Union
of Anderson couuty made a tommi
request of Clemson College to allow
the farmers tho privilege of selecting
some of the speakers at tho coming
State Farmers' Institute, and the ofti
ciala there no d->ubt will grant this re
quest. All this bas a very encourag
ing outlook and is getting the farmers
in closer touch with their college.
Thie ought to make the fact plain to
the farmers that the agricultural fea
tures of Clemson College is there for
the benefit of the farmer, and if the
farmer will co operate with the College,
greatgood for tue benefit of the farmer
will grow out of it. Or, in other words,
tho agricultural feature of Clemson
College ia just aboutasgood orindifler- j
ent as the farmer want it to be or make j
The attempt to di verso a large class
of farmers from Clemson College have
done barm to the wbole State. This
opposition beyond doubt was used to
appeal to the prejudice of the loss in
telligent class of farmers to forward
the selfish motives of individnala and a
olasa of small 2x4 politicians, who
thrive merely upon the rat barn of
prejudice among the less progressive
class of our people,
The Farmers' College and thc Farmers.
Do the farmers of Sonth Carolina
realize the fact that we have in this
State one of the best equipped agricul
tural colleges and experiment stations
in the country T If they do we are sure
that the farmers as a whole do not ap
preciate the valuable work that these
institutions may be able to do for the
interest of the farmer, or they would
make better use of this grand opportu
nity than they have been doing np to
Recently the farmers have made con
siderable inquiry as to the real
merits of the much talked of Aldrich
system of planting mixed crops of cot
ton and corn, 2 rows of cotton and 2
rowe of corn, alternating in this way
through the whole field-but we have
not been able to find where any au
thoritative actual experiments have
been made as to actual comparative
test by actual measurements and
The committee on the good of the
Farmers' Union have taken up this
matter in a co-operative way with
?lemBou College, and some eight or
ten comparative teBts on different soils
will be made, this seaBon, which will
put the farmers in possession of real
knowledge of the facts as to the mer
ita of this system, as well as compara
tive valuea of crushed cotton seed

fertilizers on poor iandB.

151 bales, was second, having passed
