WAS THE TOPIC.
Addresses Wednesday to
Congressman Joseph T.
Johnson was Present.
Addrt ssi's by Prof. <*. if. Ball and
Prof. Newman?Tlio Latter Dis
cussed Fertilizers Instructively.
To about 40 farmers and citizens last
Wednesday, Prof. O. R- Ball, agrostolo
glst Of tho national agricultural de
partment and Prof. Newman of Clem
son inado in&tructivo addresses on
grass culture and fertilizers. Congress
man Johnson a*, whoeo instance Mr.
Ball came here was present and intro
duced tbo speakers. Tho talks were
plain und informal and tho audienco
was great'y interested. Many ques
tions wore askod and answered.
Mr. Capers Hellams inquired of Prof.
Ball a remedy for tho wild onion pest.
TbiH was a poser. Mr. Ball said that
the department was working to tlnd a
remedy but so far bad not succeeded.
Mr. Ball said t hat while cotton would
always bo our leading crop there was
necessity for other crops. Wheio Mis
sissippi uro; $1.14 cents for commercial
fertilizers South Cuolina uses 17.11.
By cattle raising the fertilizer will be
producod nt tho sam* time. I believe
fertilizer is a good investment but
there is no roason why a groat propor
tion of it bliould not be made through
llve-stoek. Live-s'.ock production de
pends on forage crops. South Carolina
is more blessed by far in rain-fall than
most grass producing sections.
T?3 speaker discussed the cow-pea
as a forage and fertilizing crop and
Raid the amount of hay from it could be
increased by better stacking methods.
Ho impressed the value of eorgbum
oane as a winter forage. Bermuda is
tho prince of pasturo grasses but not
for tho year round. "When buying grass
seeds got them from Southern dealers.
Their seeds are bettor adapted to this
climate. Don't buy catalogue repre
Bdntations of Northern dealers, wbo?e
needs were producod in other cllma'es.
Winter grass crops have the great In
cidental value of preventing lands from
being washed away by winter rains.
Beef cattle can be produced as cheaply
here as anywhere in the United States.
Col. Newman sa'd that every grass
must have its rest period. If grass is
kept eaten down in summer its life
will be destroyed,?leaves are neces
sary to plant life. Alfalfa should never
be sown broad cast. Wo can nearly
approximate pasturage the year round
in this sectimi.
Concerning fertilizers he said th'tt
when the cotton aeed wore sold to . he
oil mills an equivalent should bo p ir
cbasod in good fertilizers; else the lau I
was robbed. Lnnds should be prepared
for fertilizers and they should be dis
tributed in the right way. Stable man
ures lose half their value if left in the
Heids for a long time without being
turned in. He advised that stable
manures bo left in tho stalls until ready
for distribution. Manure from adult
cattlo is far more valuablo than from
young cattlo because growing animals
assimilate in Mesh and bone more of the
Col. Newman's address contained
numbers of good points which require
far too much space for Tub Adver
tiser to print. So did Mr. B^ll'd .
A THOUGHTFUL MAN.
M. M. Austin, of Winchester, Ind.,
knew what to do in the hour of need.
His wife had;"auch an unusual case of
stomach and Tlver trouble, physicians
could not help her. He thought of and
tried Dr. King's New Life Pillsand
she got relief at once and was finally
cured. Only 26 cents at Laurecs Drug
Co. and Palmetto Drug Co.
This command will hold their annua
re-union at Barksdale's Station on
April 11th. Everybody is expected.
Srould there be rain every day till that
' ime don't think that wo will not have
a meeting. We never fail. Everybody
bring something to eat.
