CROP ROTATION NECESSARY.
Farmers of the Stale Interested in Wilt
Resistant Variety of Cotton.
Columbia correspondence New and
The farmers of Sumter and Orange
burg counties have been bothered
greatly by cotton wilt, Congressman
Lever has heen active in securing relief
for his constituents through the medium
of the Federal department of agricul
ture. The department has been ob
serving this trouble for about three
years, with the result that a wilt-resis
tant variety of cotton has been bred,
and this seems to be the remedy for the
evil. The Hagood section of Sumter
County has especially suffered, and
several years ago Congressman Lever
sent a quantity of his wilt-resistant
seed to farmers in this community with
, the most satisfactory results.
Mr. Lever has recently received thei
following letter from the department
on this subject:
United States Department of Agri
culture, Bureau of Plant Industry,
Washington, I). C, August 12, 1907.
"Hon. A. F. Lever, Peak, S. C. ? Dear
Mr. Lever: Since our letter of July the I
23rd, in regard to the outbreak of cot-j
ton disease at Hagood, Sumter County,
S. ('., specimens have been received I
from Dr. M. S. Kirk, of that place,
and I find the trouble to be the cotton
wilt. I believe you are already quite I
well acquainted with our work on this]
disease. Mr. W. A. Orton, of our
laboratory of plant pathology, has justj
returned from a trip to the South, and)
reports that the disease resistant varie
ties now being bred are showing up
very well, the percentage of resistance
being higher than ever. In fact it is a
rare exception for a plant to become]
diseased from wilt, except where the
farmer has allowed the seed to become j
mixed, or has planted them in a field
badly infected with root-knot. We
shall have more of this cotton to distri
bute next winter, and will arrange to I
supply your correspondents at that|
We find it more and more necessary
to urge upon the farmers the necessity
for a rotation of crops in combination
with the use of our resistant seed. A
great many fields are affected by root
knot which is in most cases propagated
on the roots of the common cowpea.
It is, therefore, essential on wilt-infec
ted lands the use of the common cow
peas, such as speckled, black and un
known, be discontinued, and the iron
pea or the velvet bean substituted
therefor. Before planting a resistant
variety of co'ton, the land should be
put in oats, lollowed by corn or, iron
cow peas for at least two years. Yours)
truly, "A. F. Woods,
"Acting Chief of Bureau."

It is with pleasure that I give you

but a few hours longer, but thanks to
this remedy I am now strong and well.
I have written the abovo through sim

The Judge Uses Forceful Language
Judge W. B. Simmons of Fincastle,
Va., told the reporter that L. & M.
Paint was used on his residence in 1882,
and held its color well for 21 years; he
furthermore said that 3 years ago he
was induced to use another paint
and is sorry he did, because the other
paint didn't make good. The Judge
will now always use Ij. &. M., because
he knows if any defect exists in L. &
M. Paint the house will be repainted
The L. &. M. Zinc hardens the L. &
