1. VALUE OF CRIMSON CLOVER AS
A CLOVER CROP:
Crimson clover is no doubt the
best winter leguminous crop to
plant in the orchard, as well as on
the farm. The acreage in crim
son clover in South Carolina is
its great value as a soil builder
is fast becoming appreciated.
Ii. TIME TO PLANT: '
Crimson clover may be planted
from August 15th to November
15th, but best results will be ob
tained from seed sown between
September 15th and October 15th.
Mi. AMOUNT OF SEED TO SOW
Twelve pounds of cleaned seed.
or twenty-four pounds of seed in
the bur, per acre will give a good
seeding. When sown as late as
October 15th, I would advise sow
ing fifteen pounds of cleaned see'I,
or thirty pounds of seed in the
V. COST OF SEED PER ACitE:
The price of crimson clover
seed was very high during the
past season, due to the increased
demand for -eed, and to the cut
ting off of practically all importa
tion of clover seed from Euro>e.
Even at the high price of $8.00
per bushel, the cost of seed for
one acre of crimson clover is only
V SAVE YOUR OWN SbED AND
8OME TO SELL YOUR NEIGH
Four hundred and fifty pounds
of crimson clover seed in the bur
may be harested per acre, which
will be sufficient to sow fourteen
acres. If the seed are sold at
seven cents per, pound (the price
last fall), this would give a gross
return of $31.50 for the seed per
VI. COST OF SAVING SEED:
Three men and one mule with
a home made seed harvester like
the one shown in the accompany
ing illustration can harvest from
one to two acres of crimson clover
seed per day.
V.1. COST OF HOME MADE HAR
The seed harvester ( Fig. 1.) il
lustrated above was made on the
farm in one day by two' men. The
total cost of this machine, includ
ing labor was $4.50. It was made
4 from scrap material picked up
about the farm.
VI. STORING OF SEED:
The seed must be dry wvhen
gathered, otherwise they wvill not
str-ip from the stems easily. The

(lemson College, S. C.--During the
muonths of March and April forest fires
aluently break out and burn over
iarge areas in South Carolina. The
utrong winds which we have at this
seson of the year drive off all of the
a-isture accumulated during the win
ter rains thus leaving the leaves, straw
andt other litter dIry andl very infiam

seed are removed fi the har
vester and immediate' placed in
oat sacks. They should then be
sunned for a few days until the
seed have thoroughly dried, and
then stored in the barn. A good
plan is to suspend the bags froma
the ceiling. This will get them
out of the way, and give a free
circulation of air about the seed,
which will prevent any possibility
of their moulding.
IX. A SIMPLE AND EFFECTIVE
WAY OF INOCULATING SEED:
Where clover has not previous.
ly grown, it is necessary to ino
culate the seed before sowing. Se
cure a bushel of soil from land
where crimson clover has been
grown successfully, and place it
in a water-tight barrel. Then adl
about thirty gallons of water, and
stir thoroughly. The seed are
then placed in an oat sack and
Plunged several Iimes into the
water until theny are thoroughly
wet. Remove ti. seed from the
sack, spread h-ic. out on a clean
floor, and allow :hem to dry in
the shade for a ,out two hours.
The seed are th.ati sown and the
land harrowed immediately. I
would advise sowing the seed on
freshly harrowed land late in the
afternoon, or on a cloudy day.
X. HAIRY VETCH AND CLOVER:
Hairy vetch and crimson clover
sown together made an ideal cov
er crop. Fig. II. shows a field
of vetch and clover sown Septey
ber 20th on land where neither
clover nor vetch had been grown
before. The photograph was
made when the vetch and clover
were in bloom. The seed were in
ocued as described above. Eight
pounds of clover seed and ten
p&Inds of vetch were sown per
XI. WHEN TO TURN UNDER:
It is necessary to turn under
clover when the soil is in good
condition, regardless of th'e stage
of the clover at the time. I would
advise turning under the clover
as soon after blooming as soil
conditions will permit, retaining
sufficient acreage for seed pur
poses. If cotton or corn is to fol
low clover, it will, of course, be
necessary to turn the land as ear
ly in March as soil conditions will
permit. Seed sown in September
will give a heavy cover crop by
the 15th of March.

the land is left perfectly bare. Such

There are a number of ways in
which the people of a community can
co-operate to prevent the damage done
by forest fires. In some sections of
the country it is the duty of the R. F.
D. carriers to report all fires seen by
them on their routes. Game wardens
in many states act as fire wvardenu
and have 'authority to summon men
to fight fires. There ought, of course,
to be organized fire fighting machin

this is net the case co-opertion

thing. If everyone wvho sees a fire
