The farmers of the State will pleaso
take notice that the Committee in
charge of thia Bureau of Information
does not OBsuine, or pretend to, pose as
the great head or seat Of knowledge,
where any and all knowledge pelt alu
in g to the farming interest of the State
may be obtained directly from th'? in
dividual members of our Committee
alone; but we solicit short articles from
practical farm?rs for these columns
from every quarter of the State on the
subjects ol' how to grow profitable
crops and how to turn the profits of our
farm crops into the bands of the pro
ducers.. And then again the Farmers'
Union at the Crossing wants to hear
from, the Unions at tito Forks of the
Creeks, and the Flatwooda Union
wants to hear how the Unions in tho
Red Hills are doing. In fact, we want
to know more about each other, and
what ia the best way to get ut tho
things that are to the farmers' interest.
We know of no better plan to get
together and to learn from each other
than to maintain a Burean of Infor
mation to farmers in the county news
papers throughout the State.
when it is known ?o the farmers of
tho State that all the Committee in
charge of our Bureau of Information
are practical and progressive farmers
from tho fields, and that we ar? in
dose touch with our State and Gov
ernment Experiment Stations, it is ap
parent at once that our Farmers' Bu
reau of Information has behind it for
our support^ a source from which to
draw ?JJO? for its information on sub
jects of practical and scientific farming
that is not excelled.
We now have in preparation for oar
Farmers' Union cofamoB reports from
a corleo of co-operative experiments
on the subjeots of growing nitrogen in
the-soil and the "Aldrich System" of
rotating crops by planting two rows of
cotton and two rows of corn in regular
alternation over the whole field, and
changing these rows each season.
Our experiments are conducted by
practical farmers on their farms io co 1
operation with Experiment Statibus.
We expect to maintain proiUubio
prices for our prodnots by organisation
and loyal co-operation among far
. With the birth of the Farmers'
Union the farmera of the South have
taken their rightful position.

and push year interest forward.
