far below. South Carolina having
used 280 pounds per crop acre,
Georgia 218 pounds, Alabama 210
pounds. Florida, Mississippi, and
Tennessee each 200 pounds. Other
States used still less. Little com
mercial fertilizer is used west of
the Mississippi river. North Caro
lina also used commercial fertilizer
on the highest percentage of cot

Virginia it was used on 93 per
cent of the cotton crop area, in

Georgia on 83 per cent, in Florida
on 80 per cent, in Alabama on 78
per cent, in Mississippi on 30 per

in Louisiana on 20 per cent, in

Texas only on 2 per cent.
In the- cost of fertilizer per acre

again led with an average of $6.35.
In Virginia the average per acre
was $6.19, in South Carolina $4.12,
in Georgia, $3.23, in Arkansas $3.02,

FORD RETAIL SALES
MAKE NEW RECORD
Company Reperts Total Sales Have
Reached 5,709 Machines a Day
Retail sales of Ford cars trucks
and tractors established a nW high
record during June,. when, according
to a statement issued from the Ford
Factory at Detroit, an average of 5,
709 machines were sold daily.
Ford sales have been showing a
constant increase each month thi
year; June being the- highest in the
history of the Company with a total
of 148,439 cars, trucks and tractors.
Of this number, 6,054 wecre sold by
the Ford Company of Canada and 9,
435 by the various European Fordl
Companies andl South American
Branches, reaching purchasers in
practically every civilized country in
With the closing of business for
June, Ford records dIsclosed the fact
that total sales for the first six
months of 1922 were well over the
half-million mark, the exact figures
being 652,261. This is also a new high
record as it is considerably in advance
of any previous half-year period.
July Ford sales are expected to
equal, andl probably eclipse June. The
estimated output of cars, trucks and
tractors has been pl1aced at 151,767,
altliough dlealers have requisitioned
more than 200,000.
Ford officials state that every at
tempt has been madle to supply their
(dealers with sufficient cars to fill their
orders, but that for the past three
months, prompt dleliveries have been
imp~ossible with some of the types.
The dlemand for Fordl enclosedl cars
has been especially hard to meet, due
to the ever-increasing popularity of
the Coupe and Sedan for all year
A reflection of general business con
ditions is. even in the record of Fordl
truck sales, wvhich show an increase
of eighty-four cent over last year.
Merchants andl farmers alike have
come to recognize the utility of the
motor truck in cutting transportation
costs and speeding up deliveries, and
the fact that they are buying nearly
twice as many now as a year ago
clearly points to better business con
