I DOES TOP DRESSING PAY?
5 THE ANSWER
Mr. J. I\ Acidy, of Greenwood, S. C, in 1910,
had five acres of cotton and in June, he decided to
experiment with SCOCO TOP DRESSER.
Mr. Addy personally supervised the fertilizing,
working and gathering the crop and reports the re
sults as follows:.
Land and Cultivation was the Same on Both Plots

Top Dresser $61.04. Net Profit in favor of Top Dresser
$40.26 per Acre.

The above was usod in two applications and was put well into the soil,
so future plowing would not disturb it.

Anderson Jlun Grows I.urgest Ton

Try for Record Again.
Anderson, S. C, April 25.?It is not
generally known that an Anderson
county, South Carolina, farmer last
year produced the largest yield of hay
over raised off of one t?cre of land In
the history of the United States. The
feat was performed, if it Is proper to
term it a feat, by J. R. Thompson of
Pendleton, Anderson county, who rais
ed from one acre of land a total of
12,705 pounds, creating the world's
record for hay production to the acre.
Mr. Thompson planted a combination
of orchard grass, Italian rye grass,
tall Meadow grass and Red Clover, the
blend from the four making a very ex
Mr. Thompson raised this crop of
hay off of an average ordinary acre
of land, but the same was produced
under the direction of the United
Sta:cs department, of agriculture, bu
reau of demonstration. He followed
instructions given him closely and
minutely. He planted the crop, un
der the direction of county agricultur
al demonstrator, .1. \V. Rothrock, joint
ly employed by the Tinted States gov
ernment anil the Anderson Chamber of
This year Mr. Thompson is planting
three acres to the same class of blend
ed hay, and expects to duplicate his
j fent of last year on the greater acre-:
The accomplishment of Mr. Thomp
son, in producing the world's record
hay crop from one acre is especially
Interesting as showing the wonderful
adaptability of Anderson and other
Piedmont count lea for the growing of
grasses, tints producing high gradeI
hays and in Consequence building up
of a great fat stock and dairying In
dustry* In fact, Mr. Bradford Knapp,
head of the Earners Co-Oporntivo
Domostrntlon department, agricultur
al department! at Washington City,
is reported as having recently stated
that no section of the world offers
better opportunities for tin- raising of
high grade stock than tin- Piedmont
So embused tire the agricultural de
partment with the successes made by
Mr. Thompson and others fn this dl-i
rectlon In Anderson and adjoining!
counties, that state United States ag
ricultural agent for South Carolina,
Mr. W. VY. Long, with headquarters
at Clonison College, vhen in Andor

partment would especially lake notice
of this class of development, an do
everything possible to encourage the
raising of legumes and grasses adapt
ed to the building lip of tin live stock
and dnriy industry in this section.
According to Mr. Long, who Is one
of the best posted agricultural ex
perts In the United States, the time
is close at hand when ti;<- Piedmont
counties will become among the great
est fa>l stock counties In the United
States, all of which will materially
increase the value of lands and tend to
build up other than destroy thorn,
and will in time create alinos-t auto

in this section.
