about all gathered, a very large grain
crop has been sown, and a lot of fall
plowing has T'een done, but a good
rain is badly needed as the ground is
very lard and dry.

According. to the Horry Herald
tome tobacco farmers in that county
have cleared this year over onu
housand dollars on their tobacco
rops grown on farms ranging from
wo to four acres. In addition, the
lame farmers have made good fool
rops, have money in the banks and
nough besides to keep them going
omfortably without drawing on
heir reserve. Commenting on this
statement of The Herald, the Pich
ns Sentinel says:
"There are many small pa.cne. ot
obacco grown throughout , Pickens
ounty for home use. County Agent
3owon says It could be profitably
,rown in this county on a commer
ial scale."
Why not? If tobacco can be
,rown in Pickens county and in
ther counties in this great Pied
nont Belt "for home use," and a
uperior quality of we d at that,
here is no reason why, as Mr.
3owen has said, tobacco could not
e cultivated here as a commercial
rep . It was said yesterday by two

cotton plariter . of this: caunty- that
the late Colonel ,T. 3. Moore experi
monted with growing tobacco as a
commercial crop about thirty years
ggo but without encouraging results
and that sinc . his experinent little,
or no interest had been taken in
growing the weed in Spartanburg
county as a money-crop. But that
is not like Spartanburg. There are
men still living in this county, who
will recollect when the cultivation of
cotton was not particularly promis
ing in Spartanburg.
The United States Census of 18i0
showed that in the Piedrmont Region
of South Carolina, embracing thQ
I eleven counties as they were then
known of Abbeville, Anderson,
Chester, Edgefield, Fairfield, Green
ville, Lancaster, Laurens, Newberry
Spartanburg and York--'748,510
acres of land were planted in cotton
on which only 274,318 bales were
'produced. It would not be regarded
nowadays, even with the bdll Weevil
at his worst, as very good farming
for the farmer of usual intelligence
and industry in this part of the Pied
mont Region to make only about
one-third of a bale to the are. The

low production, the lack of market.
iisg facilities, the uneettled labor
conditions of the period when these
figures were assembled, the newness
of the crop in this part of the State
did not deter the farmers from per
severrng in their mastery of the
art of 'growing cotton as a commer
cial crop, until last year, Spartan
burg ranking as the second largest
cotton-growing county in the United
States. It might be, we think it
would be, practicable for Spartan
"burg to be one of the largest to
bacco-growing counties in the United
States. Why not?
In its last number the Mullins En
terprise printed a very interesting
story about growing tobacco as a
commercial crop in this State. "Up
to September 1, the auction tobacco
warehouses of South Carolna an:l,
the markets of Fairmnot, Whiteville
and Fair Bluff, avhich are in what
is known as the South Carow,
bacco Belt, had sold 26,555,628
pounds of tobacco." "McFarland,"
a. person evidently of note in tobacco
circles, predicted early in August
that the auction houses would sell
this season in the South Carolina
Belt forty-two million pounds of the
finest tobacco in the world if the
farmers would go about the busi
ness in earnest, and any crop that
would 1Ti four milion dollars in I
