the price' Un' commodity could he put
on the tm-.rkel in such a way as to
stimulate the udvuncement of grain
The demonstration agents in th?
state report now that twice us much
small grain ls harvested as there was
u few years ago. and Hie fermera
should be encouraged yet more to en
gage In the product ?un of grain.
The present war scare is proof of
the need for more grain to he plant
ed, and the approach of the boll wei
vii ls another, lt ls not expedient to
neglect the planting of cotton, hut
the need of food is stronger than th?
demand for clothing, ami the object of
the government is to lunch every
farmer to produce ut least enough
food stuns for mau and beast and per
*ups enough to sell a little.
The old way of inoculating the
soil for planting leguminous crops j,
wu? to send away to get the soil ami L
to spread this over the area lo be
planted. The new way ls to apply f
the bacteria to tho Heed und the bac- i
torin come up in the form of a gela- t
tine and at first the farmers looked
upon it with suspicion. A traveling
salesman told the writer an amusing
Incident in a Pee Dee county.
Thio progressive farmor ordered
some of the Inoculation for the seed
and when he henrd that lt had como
up he drove over to the station with
a four horse team to get lt. There
was nothing for him at the freight
Finally he went by the poBtoftlce on
his way home to get the mall and
there he was handed a package which
j ho found to be his inoculation. It
was merely a phial - that contained
something that looked like gelatine.
"Well, bgosh, I'm slung again," was
tho farmer's comment, "19 for that | j
du med thing."
But he took it on home with him
?nd followed directions, inoculating
the seed by using the gelatine In a
solution as he was advised to do.
Then to see whether or not he had
been faked, he planted some seed on
tho same kind of soil without using
he found that the inoculated seed
had done about 5 to 1 as much. good \
[as the other. t
Tho bacteria for vetch must be us- t
?ed for vetch alone, and the bacteria
for clover for clover alone, lt will t
do no good to put vatch bacteria on t
alfalfa. The bacteria take up tho a
nitrogen which the. niants get from 1
the air and deposit the nitrogen In
nodules Just as ants deposit food for I
winter In cells*ln the ground. Theil
nodules decay when the plant is cut
()owu and in decaying release the ni
trogen. The nitrogen stays in thu ?
ground as a fertilizer for the next r
year's crop and lt is better far the .t
farmer to follow a leguminous crop, s
such as cowpous or vetch, with cot- *
ion or oats, or some crop which needs j'
the nitrogen that hus been stored Ju c
the ground. ,
Many farmers In South Carolina i
'.re learning scientific ways of farm- J
lng and are rotating their .crops so
as to use one of the soil one year r
that which has been put there artlll- j
dally the year before. Farming hail I
become a profession and .a high grade J
science. It Is' not merely a mailer ol' .
plowing and Bowing and cultivating
and harvesting, but it ls the science pf. i
applying knowledge to the soil to get n
tho best results the re from. All hall j
to the g regressive farmer and may. (
he ever be liberal enough to help his v
