Practical Demonstration Shows That
One Acre of (train is Worth Two
Acres of Cotton.
More money can be made by farmers
raising oats, corn and hay than
by raising cotton By this statement
real, actual money that may be deposited
in a bank or invested in real ,
estate or government bonds is meant.
WJtile the above statement, no
doubt, appears to be entirely plausible
to "paper farmers," or to tr:ose
X?o sit in their offices or parlors and
do their :arming with paper and pencil,
to many others who till the soil
- "Ul ~
in an attempt to secure a tuimunauic
living, probably it appears doubtful.
T-iese "doubting Thomases" are tne
farmers who have been carrying out
the plans and ideas handed down
to them by their .athers and grandfathers,
following the same old rut,
and each* year producing nothing but
cotton, the South's "money crop/'
with the exception o: a few bushels
of corn and oats produced merely because
they did not think the land devoted
to the grain was good enough
But as set out in the first sentences
of this article', there is more real
4rt rnisin? nats. corn and hay
tlian in the "South's money crop."
This means more money to the acre.
By devoting the same land that he |
has been accustomed to planting in ;
cotton to grain crops the farmer will
have a larger bank balance than ever
N before, or will be iess in debt than Le i
hac ovpr been.
The above statements are not conclusions
drawn from reports of rec- j
ord-breaking yields made in the far
west or some foreign country where
the climate is different irom what
it is in the Palmetto State, but the
facts as set forth above 'have been
proven and demonstrated year after
year in Cherokee county on a farm
not more than a couple of miles out
side of Gaffney. And the proof is
furnished by one of the largest land
owners and successful farmers in the
Mr. J. A. Carroll superintends the
cultivation of 25 acres of his land
located about one mile and a half from
Gaffney on route 2. Twelve acres of

The entire farm was sown ii oats
during September of last year. This
crop matured and was harvested in
May of the present year, yielding an
average of 50 busaels to the acre for
the entire 2-"> acres. After gathering
the oats ue bottom lands were planted
in corn, and the uplands sowed
down in peas and cane for a hay crop.

Considering the situation mathematically,
allowing approximate market
prices for the products and the

that he made a clear profit of $72.00
per acre on his bottom lands and
$62.50 clear on his uplands.

Looks good, doesn't it? The above
is statement ot facts. Mr. Carroll
has been following this plan for a
number of years and finds it so far
superior to any other that he is contemplating
increasing the acreage ;
cultivated in the above manner.
Discussing the manner of cutivation
followed, Mr. Carroll said that
sowed the oats in the fall of the .
year during the montli of September, j
using a Cole furrow drill and a moderate
quantity of good fertilizer. Tpon
this crop being gathered in INT;?y
t e bottom land was immediately
planted in corn, v.: 1 i<_ i 1 a iIi make "')
bushels 10 the acre. The upland was
sewn down in cow p< as and sorghum
for a hay crop. This will produce
fully two tons to the acre.
Mr. Carroll grows some cotton, producing
a bale to the acre upon the
land devoted to the staple. He estimates
that this crop costs $3~>.00 per
acre for cultivation, and at this time
ue products realized are not worth
more than $70.00 to the acre at t'r.e
outside, leaving a net profit o: not
more tnan ?^a.uu, or aloout one nan
the amount n ied from the grain
The experience of Mr. Carroll will
be of especial value to farmers of
Cherokee county at this time if they
will only heed his advice, which is
to reduce the acrease eiven cotton
and increase the grain crops. "Tne
outlook now is that grains will be
more valuable next year than ever
before," says Mr. Carroll, "while cotton
may remain at a low price for
some time to come. It will be unreasonable
for farmers to continue
planting all of their land in cotton.

the fall of the year are much hardier
and have a better growth than when

of fall planted oats is that
they mature fully a month earlier
than spring oats, allowing two crops
to be made on the same land. I shall ;
