Shipping Corn.
Not to Pickens but from Pick
ens. It has been a long time
since such a thing has occurred.
but we are getting back to the
days of yore when men with
wagons came in numbers to
Pickens county for corn. This
supply was not carried away on
wagons, however, as in former
days. but was shipped over the
Pickens and Southern Railroads
to Williamston. It was a solid
car containing five hundred
bushels and was shipped by om
enterprising firm Heath, Bruce,
Morrow Co.
Pickens county raised a burn
per crop of corn last year a grea
deal of which is still in the fields.
Corn is now worth on t .emar
ket here 75 cents per bushel and
it is said that there is a big profil
in it at that price.
Our people are just beginning
to learn how to raise corn, fron
50 to 100 bushels per acre, where
from 10 to 15 were formerly
made. And the corn made ir
this county is the best that is
grown anywhere. No o: e whc

Farmers Met in Courthouse
After the public sales Monday
quite a representative body of
farmers and business men as
sembled in the court house to
discuss the cotton situation and
to take some steps to better con
ditions for the coming year.
Many fav ored the Rock Hil
plan, but as that was already in
the hands of a conmmittoe, it
was left to themi to carrg it out.
To relieve the present situa
tion, the following resolutions
were adopted:
"Whereas, the low price
which farmers have gotten for
their cotton has caused money
to be scarce, which will necessi
tate farmers and other business
men to borrow money;
Therefore, be it resolved by
this mieetine, that the banks of
Pickens county be requested to
comply with the law in loaning
money and not charge a greater
rata of interest than 8 per cent.,
per annum, the legal rate."
Can't Afford It.
Many people posphone the
wearing of glasses on ac
count of the real or fan
cied strain on their pock
etbook.
Yet they would indig
nantly resent the insinu
ation that they cannot
afford good clothes.

From Six Mile.
On Feb. 2nd death caie to our
community again and took the
gentle spirit of Mrs. Keel Yates
from time to eternity. She had
been seriously ill only a short
time before the end came. Dr.
Black was summoned to her re
lief but medical aid was to nc
avail. Truly a kind and good
woman has gone from our midst.
Her remains were laid to rest in
the Six Mile cemetery the day
following her death. The sur
viving relatives have the syni
pathy of many in the sad houi
of their affliction.
Rev. A. E. Brown, D. D. will
lecture at Six Mile Feb. 9th
at 11 a. m. in the interest of the
school here. Hope that a large
congregation will greet him.

"Torrap"
.Cotton Acreage
I notice that the object of the
farmers is to reduce the acreage
>ne-fourt~h less than last year.
I am wondering how many
armers in Pickens county will
sign such pledges, I view the
onditions this way: Our farm
ers make the greaten portion
f all the corn used in this coun
ty. iTrue, a great deal is shipped
ere, and much of our cor~a gots
o other markets; and the cotton
lanted is largely a surplus. If
they want to cut the acreage.
lace the amount to each horse
hat is used and Is necessary to
se to make the crop. For in
stance, last year John Jones
lante-d twenty acnts of cotton
n Bill Jones four; is it right to
ut Bill to !hree and allow
John to plant fifteen? Somne of
h Southern states plant all cot
on, whioh means five cents for
:otton. If this.bu true, then we
an help them, and such condi
ions will enable the mass of our
armers to have their own hog
.ld hominy.
The p.-ople of Pickens have
one forwar-d and built factories
~nough to manufacture the cot
on wve make; that is just what
e need-more factories to con
ume our cotton, and then the
;outhern farmer and manufac
urer will be able to control the
nice of cotton and manufac
ured goods, but not until then
an we have a uniform pr-ice for
otton.
As to the State war-ehouses
don't think the State needs
hem. A warehouse will keep
he cotton alr-ight, but sooner or
ater it must go on the market,
nd the manuf actur-ers of the
ld world, with their cheap la
or can and will shut down
hen we undertake to hold a
ifteen million bale crop as was
fist year's. know-ing that if it is
teld until next year's crop is in
ight, there will be a 25,- or :
0000 bale crop to store or sell.
I think the far-mers would re
eive better :n-ices if they- mar
eted more slowly, as the man
facturer would not have to buy
year's supply in 90 days. as is
sually the case. I did not plant
ny cotton last year, but think
shall this year. I have planni
LI to plant one or t wo acres if it
ins the price. I will try to
ave hog and honminy, too, and

'About F
Dr. Brackett told the writer I
comid' up on the train from Co- 1
lunbia List spring that fish a:, p
an amnioniate lasted longer than i
any ammoniate used in fertili- It
zer. We have always been I
hean v- users of fish, but since E
Dr. Arackett told us that, we ]
have more than doubled the <
amount. Fish is the most ex- i
pensive ammoniate put in fer
tilizer. Some manufacturers i
don't use it at all, and we prob- 1
ably use more per-ton than any I
company in business. In the i
fertilizer you mix at home, you
get only the ammonia from cot- ;
tcn seed meal. In the mixed fer- I
tilizer you get from us tie am- I
Smonia is derived from nitrate of f
soda, sulphate of ammonia, r
high grade blood, cotton seed t
meal, tankage and fish scrap. i
You then have three different c
kinds of ammoniates-animal, c
ve:: etable and mineral. These r
different ammoniates last differ- I
ent lengths of time in the soil.
Nitrate of soda adts quickest t
and exhausts quickest, sulphate t
of ammonia comes next, blood s
and cotton seed meal next, tank- e
ake a little later because it is a I
coarser grain, and fish scrap last r
and lasts longer than any. i
As one of these exhausts, the c
other comes in. So that by this 3
combination os ammoniates we a
are making fertilizer that feeds t
and nourishes the crop from the t
time it sprouts, all through the s
working season, all through the t
laying-by season and until the z
plant is matured and the crop t
ready to be gathered. This is a f
complete fertilizer. t
Now, a fertilizer with an am- (
I moniate that is derived from e
4 cotton seed meal only, makes a t
pretty fertilizer and does first- i
rate while it lasts. d
The only trouble is that cotton c
seed meal exhausts and is done 1
with its work by the time the e
cotton begins to fruit, just the v
time when the plant needs more t
plant food, more ammonia, the o
ammoniate is exhausted and 4
, the plant sheds il fruit. And 4
that cuts your crop. There was y
less home mixed fertilizer used
in 1911 than any year within t]
tour knowledge, and it is a well f
j known fact that cotton shed less b
.in the year 1911 than any year t
'within otir knowledge, and the s
e cotton crop of 1911 was the big- a
,gest this country has ever seen. 0
Cotton iertilized with home
mixed guano always sheds like h
rips in the fruiting season. And d
cotton fertilized with a fertilizer P
containing much fish sheds less
than any other, and then home il
miixed faitilizer is not mixed as e:
thoroughly and completely as V
the fertilizer we make. You Y
could mix it as well as we do if 'a
you were equipped as we are a
and had the exrerienced help to is
mlx it, but you are not equipped is
and it won't pay you to equip ft
to nmix -fertilizer for one farm. *
It pays us because we mix fer
tilizer for from 4,000 to 6,000 tU
farms. I
Now, to show you that home li:
mixed fertilizer is not mixed z4
thoroughly, completely and reg- U
ularly, take a sample of your w
home mixed from different parts ci
of it, and have them analyzed, es
and you will find no two analy- Y'
:e.) alike. Your fertilizer does If
not ruri regular, and it can't un- si
less it is thoroughly mixed, your em
crops will not be fertilized regu
larly and so they wiil not be reg- A
ular. You all know that it is th
the regular crop of cotton that ki
turns off the best crops. In a n<4
field fertilized with your home to
mixed you will have some good
and some inferior cotton, show- th
ing that you have some good at
and some inferior fertilizer. A
T wo men were dining. One "l
complained to the other that the I
other that the egg he was eating at
was certainly not sound. The PC
other insisted that parts of it b
were splendid, and that is ?ust
the way with home nmixed fer
tilizer. In the last few years
crop contests of all sorts have th
been frequent and popular-.u
We have never heard of a
man taking the prize in a crop ou
contest who used home mixed
fertilizer. And we never have -
heard of a man going into a con
test relying on home mixed fer- b1<
tilizer. In such contests he al- mi
ways gets the regularly mized
goods from the factory, because fei
he knows it is better. Does it m
not stand to reason that a ferti
lizer manufacturer who is thor- er
oughly equipped with machin- m
ery to do mixing and has thor- un
oughly experienced men, whose ii
repu~tations, business standings ma
and salaries pepeed upon their wc
mixing the goods properly, does an,
it not stand toj reason that the 3
goods mixed a.nd manipulated u?n
by them will be hetter than the un<
goods mixed and manipulated I
by the negro tenant who is per- n
haps not over z'!alous with his tili
work nor over conscientious in a
the performlan1ce of his duties. the

Now, if the home mixer ues
he same material that we do-ir

otton is at its present Price, be
ause when cotton is cheap it
