de- South Carolina is to be the first State
t, in the United States actually to do
ion something that has been talked about i
ror for some years by both the sellers of
17, cotton seed and the cotton seed manu
ed facturers throughout the cotton belt.
Heretofore the buying of cotton- seed
u- has been upon a thoroughly unbusiness
ice like basis. Buyers scattered over the
he State gathered the seeds from the 1
farmers, irrespective of condition or
he quality, buying on commission and
led deductions being made by the mills
for bad seed upon the arrival of a car
load lot at the plant. The policy has
been a thoroughly cut-throat policy.
In the State of South Carolina an
at average of about 360,000 tons of seed is
rs- crushed annually, yielding about 160,
an 000 tons of cotton seed meal. All but
he about 40,000 tons of it, according to
of official figures, is used for fertilizers,
by the 40.000 tons being used for feed pur
o~f poses. No seed is bought outside the
State and the production of seed in the
at State is not sufficient to enable all the
ur- mills to run to capacity.

meal for feed purposes and stressed the
ce importance to the agricultural industry
cof the State for meal to be made of
such a quality that the maximum of

vill Commissioner Watson-speaking in
r-a tripple capacity, as representing the
th- department of agriculture, and primar

Tri- farmers' union and the manufacturing

all in that regard it made very little differ

d by Department of Agriculture, Fol
and Farmers' Representative
on of where the farmer had got only
iP per too for his seed when the price
or prime seed was ranging around $28
)er ton. He doubted if there was any
nore intelligence displayed in passing
)n the quality of seed than in many in
tances in the socalled grading of corn,
Ld there was indeed a necessity for
,ringing the deduction to a graduated
od intelligent basis for damage and
iot longer permitting wholesale deduc
ions for damage that might not more
han barely exist.
Commisioner Watson stated that he
vas willing to agree to the proposed
ystem of grades, provided the commit
ee from the crushere was willing to
iave the grading done under the direc
ion of the State department of agricul
ure. by experts in charge of the State
Dhemist Summers, and provided the
amples to be examined were drawn in
fair manner under directions prepar
d by the commissioner of agriculture,

inal, to be accepted by the purchasing
Dill. Commissioner Watson stated to
be commnittee that this would necessi
ae the employment by the State chem
st, during certain season, of at least
e extra man, and that the law did not.
ermit him to employ that man; but he
was willing for the chemist to select
is assistant provided the associatIon
rould meet the necessary expense, it
eing understood that the association
rould have no control over the help
This proposition was promptly agreed
o by the committee and acquiesced by
rof. Harper and Mr. Reid. There was
oe discussion as to the advisability of
fering a premium on the maximum
rice to be paid for cotton seed when
ee was offered showing absolutely the
op grade. Finally it was determined
.bat the very series of grades the~m
elves offered to the farmer a premium
or carefully caring for his seed and
,arryng it to the market in as near
rime condition as he cou:i. possibly do.
['hen the grading system was adopted
inanimously and on the part of the
nills the committee undertook to begin
mmediately a campaign of education.
The representatives of the depart

Lnd of the farmers' nion undertook to
oint out to all cotton growers the
Talue to them of using every possible
~ndeavor to carefully cars for, examine
nd handle their seed in such manner
is to get it to the market in the best
ossible shape, and to urge them when
artcularly badly damaged seed to put
ht seed in the ground for fertilizer
ad not to offer it for sale, the mills
anving declared through their commit
*ee that they did not wish to buy this
atter class of seed at any price.
The following is the system of grad
"Prime cotton seed shall be clean,
fry and sound, free from dirt, trash
nd foreign matter. Seed not coming
ip to requirements of prime seed shalli
e considered off seed. All seed shall
e graded before unloading as follows:
rake 10 representative samples of one
ound each from diefferent parts of
,he car or wagon. Thoroughly mix
ae into one composite sample, then
rith a square edge cut off about 100
:eed from the whole so separated pick
ap 100 seea in the order they are found,
he 100 seed taken by the above method
o constitute the representative sample.i
Deductions to be made as foilows:
No deduction for seed damaged un-1
er 9 per cent.
Seed damaged 10 par cent,. and not
wer 15 per cent.. deduct 7 1-2 per cent.

If seed go above 30 per cent damage

The drawing of the sample is to be
