MAYNARD COMM1UNITY PICNIC
The l4ynard school picnic which
was given on the schoolgrounds by
patrons and friends of the school

sonal interests one day and come to-,
gether for the common good of all.
The people of the Maynard commun

to their school and they prove it in
a practical way by giving of their

way of the growth of the school

years ago and he said he hoped that

PLANTING FALL WHEAT.
Clemson College, Sept. 1.2.--A
great many farmers are preparing to
plant a fall crop of wneat this year.
We heartily approve this practice of
raising wheat for home consumption
and believe it should be more gener
ally practiced, says Prof. C. P. Black
well, agronomist, who believes that
our yields are too low here to make
it a profitable crop to plant as a
money crop but that it does pay a
farmer to plant enough for his own
use. He suggests that after the
wheat is removed in the spring the
land may be planted to either cow
'peas, s6y beans, peanuts or a late
crop of corn.
Most of the wheat crop of this
state is planted In cotton or corn
middles. This is a very good prac
tice, especially if the three tube drill
is used to do the planting. If the
land is plowed in preparation for
wheat, it should be plowed as early
as possible and medium deep. But
land should not be plowed deep just
before planting, for wheat needs a
firm seed bed.
There are several varieties of;
about equal value, some being best
in some seasons and ithers in other
seasons. The varieties generally
giving best results are Blue Stem,
Leap's Prolific, Red May, and Deitz
Time to Plant.
The best time to plant is the earli
est (late possible to get the wheat up
after frost. In order to avoid Iles
sian fly damage, wheat should not be
up until after frost, but the sooner it
comes up after frost the better the
yield can be expected.
