j 1 What is a Too of Manure Worth? |'
********* *vj** ********* +
We can not tell you specifically
what a ton of manure is worth. It
is practica)Jy not worth anything as'
; long as it remains in the stable or
in the yard. It is worth less poten
tially every diy it is exnosed 'o the
weather; for the rains wash out the
; liquid portion which is really the
j most valuable part of it. while its
place it taken by water, which has
no manural value whatever. Therefore.,
the value of a ton of manure depends
largely on yourself, or just how you
Manure is the residuum of animal
feed, that part of it which the animal
can not use. Its original value, there
fore, depends on the feeds. Manure
from animals fed on straw will have1
some value as a source oi humus, but
comparatively little as a sourco of
supply of the esseiltia elements of fer
tility. Manure from cattle fed heavily
on clover, alfalfa, oil meal, or cotton
seed meal, will have great value. Ma- j
nute from cattle fed largely on corn
will have great value, but less than
the last. So the value of the manure
depends very largely on the valUe of
its value varies also with the water
content Manure from cattle contains
a large amount of water. Maim re from
horses and sheep ha:- much less,
'jeeause. an nci'UUU of the shape of
the bowel, it comes in pellets or bails,
and hence has a chance to dry out.
Therefore, it has much more ultl'OgOU,
nhosphorus and potassium per ton
than that from cattle. This is partic
ularity true of sheep, on account of the |
exceeding dryness of the product.
'I'h.'it. again much depends upon* the
land to vlncli it is applied Worn-OUt
land that is hungry makes a much
better immediate use of it than land
that Is rich anil is therefore not hun
gry for manure. In other words, the
results are more Immediately appar
Much depends on the amount that
is applied. Ordinarily farmers apply
too much manure per acre. I'ntll the
day of manure spreaders they could
scarcely avoid ttiit?. as thev could not
cover the bround completely with a
smaller amount. Again, much depends
on the way It is spread. Manure
spread with a spreader Is worth often
one-third more the first year than that
spread by fork, for the simple reason
that there Is an even distribution and
the plant can utilize it all the more
Much of the value of manure de
pends upon the place at which it is
put in the votftton. When farm ma
nure has been applied on lard that Is
In good heart, we should follow it up
with a gross feeding ..?rop, such as corn
or potatoes, and then follow that ?Ith
crops not such gross feeders, or. as
one might *ay. more delicate In their
tastes or appetites
Too great an application of manure,
to wheat or oats or any vind of grain
on land thai is well supplied with fer
tility already will be v. ry likely t.
produce loo rank growth. You car.
safety apply almost any amount tc |
pastures, because the u:\ sses ni
gross feeders and Ihe danger of lo ir
lng is much less. The same Is t; uc < i
Again, the cash vnlue of n Ion o"
mnnur'j depends on the jtvu'koi price
of Ihe grains to be raised, A ton of
manure of any kind Is worth a good
deal more when corn ?-? ? ??'.'?' cenls n
hu ihi 1 than whi n ll Is hyenty.llve
eenls. or when wiienl is h dollar than
when ii is worth only half thai much.
In short, tlr? price of Ih'o cop hns
eii to do v, Ith t'i" value of ihe n ?
;::i it will bo seen thai we can not |
answer Ibis question d finitely. The,
number of dollars a mnn gets out of!
a ton of manure will flap! 11(1 quite as
much on himself and Ills management
as anything else. It Is up to us to get
the greatest possible vtlluo Olli of It.
The value we get one year Will be
more or less than we got the year be- 1
fore. The value we gel from it in one,
crop will be more or less than the
value in number.
Again, ivo do hoi get all Ihe value
! of manure out of a crop in the first
year. The results Will 1)0 SOOH for
two. three or four years, sometimes
longer. This Is the ivnson why Rug
land lUH laws which secure payment
to the outgoing tenant for the value
of unexhaut'ted manures. In our coun
try when the tenant on a one-year
least* moves, the landlord confiscates
the unexhausted -.nine, something
thai >\ iil '.e remedied by 'eglslatlon by
' and by.
The conclusion, therefore, is: Get
1 the manure out on the land just as
quickly as you can. The quicker you
get it out, the more valuable it is.
Von will get more value out of it If
! you apply It at that point In the rota
tion where it will he valuable all
through; for example, if you put it
on meadow or pasture which you In
tend to plow up and put in corn or
potatoes, if you get it out in the win
ter as fast as It is made, so much the
better. Von may have to lose a little
through leaching, but nothing like as
much from leaching in the held as if
you allow it to leach in the yard.
It is well to study this manure ques
tion carefully this winter. It is a by
product that is not yet half appreci
ated. Time was when men burned tip
their straw stacks to get rid of them,
when they dumped their manure into
a nearby stream to get rid of it. That
was in the days of agricultural ignor
ance. We know better now. We know
it has value, great value. We do not
know bow much in any given year.
What its real value is depends largely
on ourselves. When corn is worth
fifty cents, the manure from well-fed
cattle, if hauled out at once, should he
worth two dollars a ton. One hundred
tons of manure should be worth two
hundred dollars. There is often
enough manure around the barn to
pay off say two-thirds of the rent in
any given year, provided it is applied

in an account of the paroling of
Herman E. King, of Greenwood coun
ty, in "The state"' Thursday, It Is
stated that King Is "lighting against
an attack of pneumonia am) is threat
ened with a serious Illness, the first
in 10 years."
We would like to know what that
"serious illness" Is. There arc en
tirely too many reports coming from
our penitentiary of convicts suffering
from Tuberculosis. A little investi
gation into the penitentiary might find
affairs something like that at the
asylum, where it was shown thai tilth
and dirt abounded. There is no rea
son why the convicts in the South
Carolina penitentiary should not be
given every protection against this
dread disease. It can be avoided by
a certain amount of car > and the peo
ple of the Slate should demand that
this care he taken. If there is any
p|ace in the worin wTiere the direc
tions of scientists in th3 treatment
of this disease could lie carried out. it
should he in an institution of this
kind where the demands of the treat
