How Do You Like lt ?
Well, how do you like tho idea of
our Farmers1 Union column*?
If our farmers column is not ns good
as you think it should be, suppose you
chip in and make it bettor.
A good, practical farmer is euro to
know something which, if told, will
benefit bia neighbor.
Usually tho man that knows things
haa no trouble in telling what he
knows, and then bo stops talking.
Men that really know little, or noth
ing, talk long, trying to tell something
they don't know.
Farmers1 Institutes aro good schools
for both old and young farmers, but
they don't come your way but onco a
year, while our Fermera' Union col
umna visit you each week-that is, i?
you eubBcribo for your home paper,
If all your neighbors-foi- the want
of better knowledge of business-sell
their cotton crop fur what it coBt to
make it, or less, then you aro compel lcd
to take tho same price for yours. You

prices at the beginning, you must go
out and .bring in your neighbors with

Better come aCross, boys, and join
the Farmers' Union and learn to grow
the right sizo crop and then sell it
The Farmers' Uniun is standing up
against this bot battle against cotton
speculators and winning some advan
tages iu every skirmish.
If you ?hii: k you nave a better plan
to organize farmers and keep then: or
ganized than the Union, why let's have
it, and we will join right into it with
you, for we can never maintain profi
table prices to the producer without
organization and loyal co-operation.
- If you can grow all the nitrogen
needed in your soil free of coat by
planting cowpeas, why in thunder
don't you do UT Af ter the nitrogen is
placed in tho ground, then the pea
vine bay stack is a mighty good forti
fication for the mules ro stand behind
when rough times and March winds
come along. Mortgage mules are said
to like town hay b?st, but good Far
mers' Union tutu don't believe it.
- If you think that y,ou are a little
too good, too smart, too rich or tho in
significant to join in with your neigh
bors in the Farmers' Union, do go and
join, the Cotton Association' or S?UIB
other organization that is doing good
tor your Southern country.
Many of us Farmers'union men be
long to the Cotton Association, and wo
enjoy sitting in council with these
brig tit business men of the South. Wo
learn something every time we meet
with them; and it does the farmer good
to hear these big, rich men tell the far
mer that, every interest of the whole
South is dependent upon tho prosperity
of the farmer.' .
Af ter rubbing unnga^nat theseshrewd

we feel mighty proud and rich for a long
time afterwards; but when wo are in
deep trouble ab OIK- t be every, day ?.af

Very truly yours,
Mr. J. C. Stripling, Pendleton, S. C.
Dear Sir: Complying with your re
quest concerning tho results obtained
by the South Carolina Experiment.
Station, in our 1005 test of tho Aldrich
system, I will givo the following:
Two rowe each cotton and corn,
yield 040.4 pounds seed cotton per
acre; 1380 pounds of ear corn por aero.
Equal nrea aa abovo all in cotton,
10U9 2 of seed cotton per acre; all corn,
2520 pounds of uar coru.
Yea will see that tho half corn and
half cotton failed by about 000 pounds
per acre of seed cotton to make half
aa much aa the all cotton acre. The
Aldrich acre corn yield was a little bit
moro than one half tho aero yield
from tho all corn plot. But tho di flor
ence ia GO alight as to scarcely be
worthy o? consideration. The variety
of corn used in thia test was tho Marl
borough Prolific and the variety of
cotton waa Toolo'a. The fertilizer
contained 7.1 per cent of phosphoric
acid; 0.4 per cent, of potash; and 3 3
per cent, of nitrogen, 400 pounds be
ing applied to tho ucro. The cotton
and corn were P'????:^ at tho same
time. I am cou titi.nt tunt this should
not be thu ci^e. since the corn will
usually in our elim ?ito produce better
when planted eui ly, and if the corn
planting ia delayed until the cotton ia
planted the corn will go ic tho ground
from three to five weeka Inter than
would piobably bo better for securing
the beat yield of corn. A small t>tnlk,
early corn should bo grown, that it
may come oiVin timo to givo nil the
Boil area to tho cotton when the cot
ton needs moisture and plant food
more than atnuy other time.
I wish to impress upon you that this
is a one year's test and is by no means
conclusivo. Tho resulta could ensily
havo been reversed oy using differers
varieties of either cotton or corn or hy
having a different growing season for
the production of these crops.
It is the intention of tho station to
continue these tests in duplicate for a
number of years and in slight varia
tion from the plan herein reported.
Accompanying this test was another
in which four rows of cotton and four
rows of corn were used. Bnt this
plan gave inferior yields to the two
row system. Where these teBts were
ruado in 1003, in 1000 we will pursue
i hu same plan alternating cotton with
corn in one case; in another, cotton
will follow cotton; and in still another,
corn will follow com*
.We hope to also in the all cora plots
sod in one of the duplicates of the
Aldrich system plot to have cowpens
take the place of corn when tho corn
matures, by planting tho cowpeas in
the corn rows ut the time of laying up
the corn. ?
Very truly yours,
C. I?. Newman.

. ' _____ A "
Out of eight comparative tests the
Aldrich system of planring two rowa
Of corn and two rowe of cotton alter
nating on thia pinn with solid crops of
each eotton and corni we made lesa
crops of each-by actual measurementa
and weight-tinder the Aldrich system
than where solid crops of each cotton
and corn were planted, excepting in
one teat where we used 400 pounds
crushed cotton seed per acre! The
gain in this Instance waa Hi bushels
of corn and 1030 pounds of stalks per
aery in favor of the Aldrich system.
In consideration of the fact that a
large number of practical farmers
have endorsed the Aldrich system,
although they have done sb without
nu ' ting the test by actual weights and
tneisnreinents, wo are of the opinion
t lia ; there must b? some ad van tage in
the system Where early field varieties
of corn ia used along with late ma
turing varieties of cotton. Thus by
planting the corn as early aa possible
we may. remove the corn off the land
in time tu k'iM* the eotton more sun-,
light and thu UM . f ..tl the laud which
may be very ben? hVinl to a late ma

left rather thin on the land. In the
foregoing teat cotton and corn were
planted the same day. . ?
