Pickens County Man E
Is Model Farmer
Special to The Sentinel.
Clemson College, May 4.- p]
Pickens county has given the t<
state a concrete example of the if
possibilities of tenant farming a
where there is proper co-opera- a
tion between landlord and ten- e]
ant. In his latest weekly report o.
W. H. Barton. assistant state C
agent of demonstration in co- h
operation with Clemson College, a
"Mr. S. H. Maddox, of Norris, h
S. C., is a tenant on the farm of f(
Mr. E. W. Tate. Mr. Maddox N
is known in his community as h
the 'best farmer in the county' si
(Pickens). He began on dead ii
poor land four years ago, the t]
land being full of gullies from
knee to waist deep. With deep if
plowing, terracing and winter s<
cover crops of rye, he has in "
this short time brought the farm a
up to where, last year, he made cl
an average of 45 bushels of corn S
and 1,547 pounds of seed cotton q
per acre. He now has more a
than three-fourths of the farm d
sown to clover, vetch and rye to Z
to be turned this spring. c<
"This is a concrete example of c.
what a renter can do when the h
landlord properly co-operates. t]
And this is the secret of the n
whole affair. The landlord. Mr. S
Tate, furnishes free of charge e:
all cover crop seed and binds
himself not to advance his
charges for rental so long as Mr.
Maddox remains on his farm.
Mr. Maddox pays a certain per- .
centage of all he makes, and
whatever is to the interest of the
one is to the interest of the oth- C
er. Mr. Tate is delighted with h
