\ WHEAT, THE GREATEST BREAD CROP(! j
!! (By Prof. J. N. Harper) I [
Clemson Extension Work Department
To obtain broad has ever boon the
struggle of mankind. The want of
it has caused wars and the change of
dynasties. Through the ages, the ever
constant cry l as been Cheaper bread.
Today with all of our complex civili
zation that demand is as potent as ever
and to obtain it economically will be
! the greatest problem for future gener
ations to solve. Wheat is. as it has
been since history began, the main ,
cereal from which bread is made. It !
is the most valuable crop of the world, i
.No other crop is adapted to such a j
wide diversity of soil and climate. It |
is grown within the Arctic Circle and
over the lOrpintor. teach year the world
consumes more than 3,000,000,000 bu
shels of this cereal.
The South should produce Its own
bread and it will when its farmers ful.
ly realize the advantage and full value
of diversified fanning. Diversified ?
farming is the only key that will un- |
lock the chest of gold that lies bidden |
In every acre of our land. To diver
sify properly, we must grow all crops
in systematic rotation. The best sys
tem of crop rotation for the South
Is one that contains a winter cover
crop. This cover crop can be either
a winter legume, such as bur < lover.'
crimson clover or vetch, or a cereal,
su'ch as wheat, oats, bailey or rye. If
the soil is impoverished and In great
need of Improvement, one of the le
gumes with ry<- should be sown to be
turned under in the spring. If. how
ever, the land is highly improved and
was well fertilized the previous spring
and summer, either oats or wheat
should be planted. Wheat is not a
profitable crop except when grown on
rich lain'. The phenomenally high
yields of corn that have been pro
duced in various sections of this state
during the past few years are convinc
ing. We know that we have a great
corn country, and this year South Car- i
ollna will probably produce as much
as 50.000,000 bushels of corn. Where
these largo yields of corn wi re ob-j
talued, the land will be sufficiently
improved foi wheat There are ihous-j
ands of acres of land in this State that
were planted in corn this season and
highly fertilized that should be sown J
down in wheat this fall. Now is the(
time to sow; it is not too late. Whom |

The type of soil best suitt d to wheat
is ?l>e clav loam Pefore planting the
land should be thoroughly prepared
by plowing as deep as possible and

'cgo experiment station has tested a
number of varieties of wheat and the
varieties that have given the best re
sults are the Red May and the Blue
Straw. Seed of these varieties can
be obtained at any of the)leading seed
It mses. Before sowing, the seed should
be treated with a solution of copper
sulphate to destroy the smut. This
solution is made by dissolving <5 lbs.
of copper sulphate in 10 or '20 gal
lons of water, using a wooden vessel
in which to make the mixture. Aftor
the seed have been dipped for a few
minutes, they should be spread out
to dry before sowing. Four to six

the neighborhood. It should be sown
any time after the first of October.
Wheat can, however, be sown later
than any olher of the cereals. The
seed can be sown either broadcast or
hariowed in or planted with a grain
drill. The latter method is the best
for the seed are placed far enough be-j
low the surface to obtain sufficient
moisture to cause Immediate germina
Wheat is a heavy feeder on phos
phorous and nitrogen, therefore it
should be liberally fertilized with
phosphoric acid and ammonia. At
least 300 or 100 lbs. of acid phosphate
and lt?0 lbs. of cotton seed meal, or its
equivalent, should be applied at the;
time of sowing: and another applica
tion should be made the first of March,
a similar amount being used. At the
time the latter application is made.1
nitrate of soda at the rate of 100 lbs.1
per acre should be applied. Most of
the (lay lands of the piedmont see
don of this state contain a sufficient
amount of potash for wheat. Wheat
when planted on the lands of the
coastal plain should also be ferti
lized with kainit or muriate of potash.
A second application of nitrate of
soda of about R0 lbs. should be made
the middle of April.
A small patch of wheat should be
grown on every farm for early spring
grazing and as a forage crop. Wheat
makes the best hay possible if it is
cut while In the dough stage.

reach the diseased portions of the ear.
There is only one way to cure deafness
and tha? is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed
condition of the mucous lining of the
Kustachiau Tube. When this tube is
inflamed you have a rumbling sound
or Imperfect hearing, nnd when It is |
entirely closed, deafness is the result,
nnd unless the Inflammation can he
taken out and thlR tube restored to
Its normal condition, hearing will be
destroyed forever; nine cases out of
ten are caused by Catarrh, which Is
nothing but an Inflamed condition of
the mucous surfaces.

for any case of Deafness (caused by
Catarrh) that cannot be cured by
