PICKENS BANK TO BUY. "SEED
WHEAT FOR FARMilR.
County Agent T. A. Bowen in
forms us that the Picken$,Bank has
offered to buy a car load of seed
wheat for fall planting for the con
venience 'of the farmers of Pickens
county who wish to -sow wheat this
fall. This wheat will be distribut
ed at actual cost among the 'Farmers
who make their wants known._
This action is prompted by the
bank on account of the situation, that
will exist by the appearance of the
bol weevil. Those who are in po
sition to know state that with a mild
winter the boll weevil will do. great
damage in this county next year
and the farmers must get ready ::o
cope with conditions. More gradn
must b- sown and crops other than
cotton must be raised.
This progressive move of the Pick
ens Bank is in.. line with the public
spirited policy of the officers of :he
bank and in keeping ' with their
policy of helping to make Pickens a
better and stronger county.
Mr. Bowen states that arrange
ments have been made to get good
seed wheat from Tennessee at a cost I
of about $2.00-a bushel. Blue straw
or Leap's prolific seed may be ob
tined, but Mr. Bowen recommends
th blue straw variety for this county.
For the convenience of the- farm
ers arrangements have been made
for the following places to take or
ders for seed, provided orders are
placed before Saturday, September
