TION OF CROPS
Held An Important Session in
Anderson Yesterday to Con
(From Wednesday's Dally.)
Those who know say that the An
derson county farmers' union has at
last wakened to the fact that the en
tire trouble with the south and the
southern farmer 1b to be found in the
amount of cotton planted eacli year.
This is the deduction reached after
the meeting of the union was con
With J. W. Itothrock. the president
of the county union, in the chair, the
meeting was called to order lu the
court house yesterday morning at 11
A report was submitted covering
the entertainment of the state union,
which met in this city a few weeks

olutions extending the official thunks
of the organization to the Anderson
chamber of commerce and to Clemson
College for the courtesies extended
the union while in session.
The report of the secretary shows
that several new applications for
membership have been received with
in the last few days und that these up
nHeant? have bee recommended for
membership. A substantial increase
In membership is now apparent und
if. 1b believed that the European war
is Irvmg a good effect on the county
unions because of tiie fact that the
farmers see the necessity of uniting
for their own protection on the mar
keting of crops.
A resolution was introduced and
adopted which Bays In effect that the
Anderson county union must get be
hind the effort to curtail the planting
of cotton and to further crop diversi
fication. This resolution would have
the union endeacvor to further the j
move calling for more grain and less
cotton to bo planted. The union pro
poses to build up the live stock indu.
try of this section and to promote the
rising of meats of all kinds in order
that assistance may be rendered the
Anderson cnauiber of commerce in its
efforts''.to secure a meat-packing
house for this city and county.
, The union entered into an election
of delegates to represent that body
at the southern cotton congress which
neets In Washington tomorrow and
chose J. M. Broyles, T. T. Wakefield
and F. L. Burrls.
The following were the resolutions -
as adopted yesterday:
. "Whereas the European war h p.s
caused the United States to become
excited concerning our market and
whereas we may have a continuance
of the war for many years and our
market may be all torn up so that we
will have to support ourselves inde
pendent of Europe and whereas cot
ton is our chief article of export and
our money crop.
"Therefore be It resolved, by the
Anderson county farmers' union now
in session that we adopt the plan of
living at home and making our own
living and a surplus to feed our city
neighbors by raising more wheat, oats
corn, potatoes, hay and all such ar
ticles and have our surplus crop cot
ton. And resolved second, that we
then hold such cotton until we can
get a profitable price for it.
; "Resolved, third, that we ask and
urge all the farmers of Anderson
county to come into the farmers's un
ion and help us build up the ruin,
thereby putting- ourselves Invclose
touch with ?ar.h other where we can
accomplish the desire of our hearts
and make an honest living for our
families and raise and educate, our
children so that they can go into tbe
world and be an honor to us and be
able to live like they- shoub* live and
thank their God that they were raised
on the farm and by tarru parents and
evic call us blessed *nd show to the
world that wc werr men."

If every farmer will sow five acres of oats to the plow,.and ihres
.?eres of wheat to the plow, on ground that Is well prenar-d and we*
Ifertilized, he will make enough wheat and oats to do him.
The Corn crop is likedy' to. b? short, in this section as ihe season \
have not been favorable for making corn. it the war in Europe
continues for x long-time, there-will be a tremendous amount of
corn and wheat ana oats exported to Europe and this will make
corn, wheat and oats hi_h.
September'is a good time to sow oats. Prepare the groumjkl-^
carefully and thoroughly befdfe you get to picking cotton, and fer
tilize it with about 3oo pounds to the acre of say, 10-1-3 or 10-l-4iL
your oats will get well rooted before the cold weather comes on and! '
if sown in the drill it is about as sure a crop as you can planfJ
Thest oats will come in early next spring and wiL help put a shdrtf
:orn crop. ^$|8
Now and then you hear of a farmer sowing oats in August, and we*
I believe the August sowing always makes a good crop. jj
September is a capital time to sow oats and we believe if will pay
ou mighty well to sow some this fall. fjj
It always pays to prepare your land well, and to fertilize if well J
