Your trop will be largely made or marred in the months of May and
June, if you get it started off growing nicely in these months, given
good preparation you stand a very much better'Chance of making a
good1croh and your crop will slatid adverse conditions better jn Joly
ano /^?g?si. *
lt a pig gets shunted in its early youth, it is almost impossible to ?
make a good rousing liog out of it later. If youi cotton is stunted, or ;
ii it gets sore shin or any of the other ailments to which-cotton is lia
ble, lt has to recover from this before it can take on its natural growth,
and it never does as well as it would if it had not suff?retf tit?setfrou
bies. Side dressing, In- supplying plant food, makes Uris plant rigor
ous and healthy and Strong and it grows off from the start. If you
break your arni and set it, and get it properly set and properly knitted
together, it is never as strong as before ii was broken. "A bird with
a broken wing never soars so high again."
And so it is with your cotton. Early attention and ?arly fertiliza- '?
tion is more than half of the battle. There is no question- of sirle ?
dressing paying. You notice what roi> dressing did for grim* *this
spring; as soon as the top dressing was administered, the grain came :i
out of the kinks, and if you administer side dressing to your cotton, it ;
will'come out" of the kinks. The preparation for a crop -has 'been .
unusually line this spring, and where the preparation is tine the farm
ing ls good and side dressing is bound to pay.
Some farmers have found side dressing unprofitable; that is because
it was applied too late; it should be applied early, as so'.?n as you bring
your cotton to a stand, because you do not care to side dress Cotton*^
that you are going to cut oui; anil as soon as you get the grass out of -v
your cotton, because you do not care to side dress grass; grass takes ^
care of itself in a crop* if let alone. As soon as this is done, then thc
side dressing should'be applied and you are hot going to apply too
much of it. Up to a few years ago France used more fertilizer Utan
(he whole United States of America and they did not use it all at once? 3
either. The French farmers make very fine.crops.
In a few years people will wdnder why We use so litlie5 fertilizer
now in making crops,. Joel JCey told the writer bf ?Mr. Hogers dow?T
in Florence County who''side"dressed his cotton every fime'h? cUlti- ;
vated it, and? when, he wound up cultivating his .crop, he.? hid used *
about l?Oiti pounds of fertilizer to fbi acre, and When he wound *ip
gathering his'crop. he had gathered 88o pd?nds of tint cotton tb the
acre; not seed cotton-lint cotton, two oates weighing 4-4o pounds j
each to the acre. Now, if this is not profitable,.'the. most.'of us had ,
better quit farminsr.
Side dressing your cotton prevents disease to which cotton ls liable'
because it is stronger and better able io wiihsiand these trouble*. ' ft
is stronger because it is better fed. A well fed pig or a web fed chi?d
can resist disease better than a little stunted child or pig.
Then, when a man's cotton crop grows off well. When it ls green,
and greasv and growing, it makes him feel better, it encourages bim
to work it better and he will have a better crop. Then, too, a man
feels his oats a little more with a good crop than he does otherwise;
it gives him better credit arid it gives him better- standing in
his community having a good crop of green, greasy " glow
ing cotton, than having a little yellow, rusty, stunted^
bumble bee cotton. The time is past when a man can main
rain his respectability and^grow bumble bee cotton. Some^ people
complain that thev cannot get their hahds to side dress crops, fcut this
Mr. Rogers had no trouble of that sort. He is like the .centurion
spoken of in the Good Book; when he tells man to do a thine rise
does it. :<.-. ?:?
' If you apply ali your fertilizer when you plant your cotton, th?
spring rains get a part of it ; the grass gets a party the cotton thai you
cut out in reducing your crop to a stariiJ has takdn aspart,+s^ yotlt re
maining crop gets probably not more thad half of what y^^tdown.-,
Now, snppose' you iise 400 ?pounds to the acre of io-a-2. goods.'
You.wlll have'12* ounces of ammonia; half nf this h?s beeii taken ut?
by tte tains; the grass and cotton you ti?v? taken out
have ?about 64 dunces of ammonia and you have f4,7oo' cotton statis
to Tertiihie' with this 'trounces of ammonia. The wonder is that sty
little fertilizer will make such a difference in the crop. Yo? c??'see
this diflerence ?by comparing a field fertilized, with a'field of cotton
that teviot fertilized. You will come td the conclusion that fertiliicT
men "are giving you good goods or so little would not make such a
difference. - .
As Voi?t OftH??i g^v.vs, your feriiHzer is absorbed and used up. and
??ofig'ili Ji?y and A;;gust": your cotton is putting on its fruit, and,
When this is goingon the strain on the cotton plant is grtitest Now,
iusi at the ^\T?".~ whwft th" ~-rai" is -Ti'^iet-:, i.;? :;?:;V;T;V cf p?i?it'f^L?~I

ing by the additional fruit thai th? ^iatk takes on, just htJthe trme when
yourplint is hurigering?and thirst'mg for plant food,.for sustenajKt^iOr
you might Say, for vittles, as the hart panteth after the water broofc,
the supplv 'is reduced and is decreasing arjd your crop sheds. What
else can \\ do ? wnen your 1fattn work is Heaviest On the mules, you
increase the food and then they do not hoidth?rr*?wn; suppose: you
did not increase their food when you increased their work; wouldn't
you expect them to shed too?
In every contest for corn or cotton that has been entered'into for
years past", the one who got the prize side dressedi??s xr?fy a?id more
than once. There is no accident' about fhis;'1t H'-a consequence. ;*A
man does not stand a ghost nf a chance of getting the prize in a-.crcp *.
contest who does not side dress.
In 1011 this county made the biggest cotton crop it has ever grown
and there was more side dressing used- than ever. That was not ac
cident, either, it was* another consequence. 1 You do riot expect ip
give your mule enough corn and oats Monday mornihg (o'lasf it urtu!
Saturday night, and you have no notion of giving it enough corn and
pats and water in April to last it until October, but that is what you do
when you fertilize youf cotton in April and expect it to feed a crop un
til it matures in October.
In ? mair's farming, his cotton crop is his money crop-his way of
making a profit and he only makes one cotton crop a year. That be
ing the case, it Will pay him to nurse hisxrop. feed ft, look of ter it; li
has been estimated that for everv donar a man spends in fertilizer he
gets back ?3:6o, leaving him a clean, clear profit of??%2.60 on eve*y
dollar he spends for fertilizer. The profit is greater than this on side
dressing, because In side dressing the crop gets every ounce of ferine
zer, where it gets not over half of that which is applied when the crop
is planted. . "
\ Few people realize thc value of side-dressing and the proUT in it.,
If they did, we feel sure they would firtd ftrmln^ very much#or^diiot
fitable. To change the reading of the text of the Good Book a tittle,
we?ill say when you know the truth, the truth Shall make you free.
Now, we are making a ??riii?zer especially adapted to side dressing.
If-takes a ?dlfferent fertilizer for side tire Wing than>K< dot? for ?"R
