- Aldrich system of growing Corn
and cotton together, viz: two rows of
cotton alternated with two rows of
corn, in comparison with solid plots of
Width of rows, 4 feet, corn 18 in.
in drill, cotton from 24 in. to 36 in.
L Florodora cotton and eighteen kar
at prolific corn was planted.
Four comparative tests each were
averaged in these counts.
Aldrich method-t in round numbers
averaged per acre 70 bushels corn and
5400 pounds stover, countill corn at
75 cents Per bushel and stover at 75
cents per 100 pounds, put corn pro
I ducts at $93.12 pec aere. '
Cotton was sold for 16 cents Per
I pound and the sced at $1. per bushel,
3 brought. the cotton products i) to
$113.16 per acre. Money value.
Solid plot.s of each corn1 and cotton
planted in solid crops as usually do.ne
iade in cototon 273 Pounds ill lint and
67 bushels (,I.* seed, which Sold for
$185.33 per acre.
Corn averag-ed 55 bushels and 4100
pounds stover, maki.ng corn products
$72.10 Per aere, and an average ot
$128.71 per acre (ounting both corn
an( cotton averaged up together.
Thi-s test shows a loss oi the Al
dr(ich plan of $25.57 per acre wheni
cotto.n was sold for 16 eents. But
couniting cotton at common prices, 1.0
cents, the loss 'to the Aldrich system
is reduced,. to $7.57 per acre. This is
on account of solid field of cotton

1 Counting Cost.
t When~ cost of prodnetion is -taken
into count and1( cost of picking cottoni
i. as against the cost of harvesting the
v corn crop by machinery, there is a
- difference of only $2.57 per acre
a against the Aldrich method per acre.
Finially our test for last year's ex
r perience shows that we have paid, or
- ~sustaianed a loss on a general average
ai of abouit $2.57 per acre for the priv
a ilege of rotating our erop) of corn and
e cotton in the same field, which p)rivil
e ege gave a goodl cirop of peas and
t vines on half the land.
a We are well pleased with the result
a of our A-ldrich crops last year and
will plant a larger area after the Al
a drich method this year.
. Under tihe Aldrich and Williamson
- methods of corn growving we made
ai upon an' average of the whole crop
r 70 bushels and 21 pounds per acre
, without any hand hoeing at any time.
Our cotton crop own the Aldrich moth

How Times Have Changed.
''The times are changing,'' said
Bailiff 'William Phipps. "You know
they used to say that you could al
ways look around and see a whbite
horse whenever you spied a red head
ed women .Generally, too, it was true.
'It's different now,
"I was walking the Circle yester
day and'sawv a girl so red headed that
I'd be willing to take out fire in
surance on her. I looked about for the
proverbial wvhite horse, and discover
-ed nothing but six automobiles. Ver
ily, tihe times are changing.''
