MARKETING OF FAIOI TIMBER.
Forest Service Says Ignorance of
Woodlot Owners Often Costs
Them Dearly. v j
Washington, Aug. 9.?The marketing
of farm timber presents some of
ti.e same difficulties, but in an aggravated
form, that the farmer meets in
selling other crops, says a forest service
contribution to the Year Book of
the Deartpment of Agriculture, just
issued. The farmer finds it hard to get
enough for his timber. Most farmers
now sell their sawT timber on the
stump to a mill man, such sales ordinarily
being made for a lump sum.
The mill man, experienced in estimating,
goes through the woods and sizes
up to the quality and value of the timber
he wants. The owner, being a
farmer and not a lumberman, seldom
knows anything about estimating timber
and has only C:e vaguest idea of
what it ought to bring. The conse
quence of tins condition is tnat ine
farmer often -receives only a small
fraction of the actual market value
of his stumpage.
Astonishing examples of wf;at a
farmer may thus throw away are often
encountered by foresters', continues
the article. For instance, a Massaformer
cnlrl a million ffiPt of
Vii UOV/l VO iui uivi uviu wv ? -
timber to a portable sawmill for $1,200,
and thought he had obtained a good
price. His neighbor, fiowever, who
knew something about timber, got
$7,000 for the same quantity of white
pine from the ivery same portable
mill man. The first farmer, on account
of f';is ignorance, practically presented
the mill man with $5,800; the second
owner was wise euwug-j iu icam before
he attempted to sell his timber
how much he had and what it ought
to bring him in money.
The productive capacity of the 200
million acres of farm lands throughout
the country which either have or
should have timber growing on them
is enormous, say the article. This
area is lareer than all t)':e national
forests puts together, and with an annual
growth of 200 board feet per ace
of saw timber?a moderate allowance
under the practice of forestry?it
would produce annually about 40 bil
lion feet, or the equivalent of the entire
lumber cut of the country, in addition
to not less than 120 million
cords of firewood.
These figures, continues the article,
probably never will be realized, for
fl:e reason that the present area of
farm woodlands is much greater than
if will ho ovontnnllv F"r>r pvamnlp
woodland comprises 31 per cent of the
entire farm area of the South, and undoubtedly
much of this land will be
put to other uses than timber growing.
Nevertheless, the farmers of tJ:e
United States now own at least 250
billion feet of saw timber and 113 billion
cords of cordwood, and this timber
should produce a substantial part
of their incomes. Farmers ought to
make the most of their timber, and the
public should be interested in this
question for tf'-e reason that the vast
aggregate of farm timber should be
available to supplement the other
sources of the general supply.

DO NOT PULL FODDER.
Serious Injury to Corn Crop From This
Southern Farm Practice.
Clemson College, Aug. 12.?One of
ti e most costly mistakes of Southern
farmers is fodder-pulling. Pulling fod
der not only reduces the yield of corn,
but also seriously injures the vitality
of the seed for the following year.
Experiments conducted in South
Carolina on the Coker farm in Darlington
county, proved that wnen fodder
was pulLed when the bottom leaves
began to turn, there was a loss of at
least 24 per cent in the yield of corn.
T f rmllo/9 nrbAn thrpp-fniirtn?: of the
leaves were dry, the decrease in yied
was about 10 per cent.
'But this is not tne only loss from
fodder-pulling. Pulling fodder has a
serious effect upon the next year's
crop by lowering the vitality of the
seed produced on stalks from wtich
fodder is pulled. (By pulling fodder,
therefore, a man not only loses on his
rnrront Arn.n Hut alsn damages his
chances of producing a good crop the
A good authority on the subject advises
that if a farmer feels he must
pull fodder, he.should leave at least
two or three acres of Lis crop unpulled
and from this select his seed
corn In this way he can keep up the
quality of his seed and not suffer the
second loss from fodder-pulling, t)':at
comes through planting inferior seed.

C-lemson College, Aug. 12.?"Sow

advice urged upon t):e farmers of
South Carolina for their fall practice.
On the theory that general conditions
this fall will be very similar to those

The other urges farmers to take "The

will be placed conspicuously. This
will be the first act of tt:e fall campaign.
Clemson College urges farmers to
sow large areas to oats this fall. To
this adivice is added the warning that
farmers should get their oats in the
ground early and not wait until late,
as so many did last year. The seeding
of oats should begin about the end of

State has every reason to feel satisfied

enough wheat for her own bread and
this is what should be done.
