Your neighbors are using it and they say it increases
the yield of the crop to which it is applid, from 25 to 100
per cent. Besides this it causes that erop to store in each
acre of ground from 100 to 200 pounds of pure nitrogen
for the benefit of the next crop. Nitrogen in commer
cial fertilizers costs YOU about, 20,cents a pound. Use
Nitragin and you get it FREE from the air. Apply it to
all your Peas, Beans and other pod bearing or legume
crops. Can you afford to pay 20 cent a poud for Nitro
gen when your neighbor gets it FREE?

LEADES STATES IN
VALUES PER ACRE
Government Figures Place South
Carolina First. Cover Twelve Crops
Columbia, S. C., March 28.-"Very
often we hear it stated that if we could
only get the value of our agricultural
products per acre up to what it is in
the states of the diddle West, South
Carolina would be the greatest state
in the Union," remarked Commission
er Watson yesterday. "The truth of
the matter is that South Carolina has
a greater value per acre for the 12
leading crops--corn, wheat, oats, bar
ley, rye, buckwheat, potatoes, hay,
llaxseed, cotton, rice and tobacco, rep
resenting more than 90 per cent. of
the total area of all crops--than any
state in the Middle West, than any oth
or slate in the South and than any
other state inl the Union with the ex
m''ption of Nevada, Arizona, Massachut
Petts, Rhode ]sland, Now .1ersey, -'o1
neenitetot, the only six states which
exceed the distinguished little pioicer.
In Vol um01e of agriculture none of t hese
six states could be called an taricul
tural slate, as agriculttal states go
today, antd tha.t being true, whte:1 we
c(onsider the voune of prodlnieth In
mei(aisltre(l in millions of dollars. the
farm of I191;, for v:tiite per acre of
crops, belongs to South Carolina.
"Of course, nobody had dremCed,
perhap , that this would happet, and
1 hardly believed it nyselfr today,
when I got from Washington these
average values per acre of the 12
erons combined in each of the states
of the Union. South Carolina's value
per acre is $25.18, Georgia's is only
$20.80, North Carolina's is very close
ill) to the Palmetto State with $21.81,
Virginia's is $23.69, and then they tum
ble. The socalled great. agricultural
producing section of the Middle West
runs like this:
"Ohio, $19.29; Indiana, $17.28; 1111
nois, $14.87; Iowa, $17.01; Missouri,
$1?.29; Michigan, $16.83; Wisconi.
$19.41 ; Minnesota, $14.26; North iDa
kota, $8.15; South Dakota, $9.48; Ne
braska, $10.85; Kansas, $7; Tennessee.
"In the rest of the South not men
tioned above it runs this way:
"Alabama, $20; Mississippi, $19.62;
Louisiana, $19.05; Texas, $18.52; Ok
lahoma, $10.06; Arkansas, $18.56.
"In the Far West, with the excep
tions I have noted, New Mexico and
Navada, the highest figures are $20
and $20.25 in California. Up in the
East the figures are:
"Maine, $23.72; New Iampshire,
$20.11; Vermont, $20.78; Massachu
setts, $;12.34; Connecticut, $37.63; New
York, $19.33; New Jersey, $29.02;
Pennsylvania, $21.34; Delaware $18.47
"The average for the entire United
States is $16.31, which is just exactly
I cent more than it was in 1909.
"It ought to be pretty convincing
also to the people who come down
and 1(ook aroutnd the South and say
that' ir time condItions her'e wvere 'like
they are at home what a paradise it
would lbe,' to know that the aver'
age value per acr'e of these 12 ctrops
in the South Atlantic States is $22.54.
which is higher than in any other
section of the UnIted States. In the
North Atlantic States It is $21.08, in
theo Eaist Notrth Cenitral States it Is
$17.07, In the West Notrth Central
States it is $11.52, in the South Central
States it. Is $17.45, and in time far
Western States it is $19.59.
"Thme increases since 1909 show
that the South Atlantic States outstrip
thmo etirte coun ttry. In both the East
andl West North Centrtal States there
has been a steadIy declIne, and thIs is
triue of thme Notrth Atlantic States. In
other words, these oticial feeral fig
iurtes thait have just been 15ssued show
beyondtll qu (iestlotn of (lollblt that
abile we htave only as yet begutn to
scr~atch the surface or our opporntut
ntities here ini thte Soitth Atlantic
States, agriculturally, these S'tates
are today the leaders in agricutltur-al
itioduttion whent measurd by thet
only triue yard( stick, which is the~ ae
I ual valute of the crops produced on
each acre of land Cuitivatedl and
South Carolina Leiads.
"They bring to the eyes of the world
what is evetr more important to us
people hetre In S'outh Car'olina, andl
that is the fact that South Carolina,
vol ume of aigticutltural production con
sidlered1, is itndeed thme leading state
in the Amerilcan Unilon today in ag
rictultutral endeavor'. It demonstrates
to the outside world that the methods
we have been employing in thte last
' eile in South Carolina to increase

12 lending cr-ops of the country has

" occurs to me that we as a peo
ple ought to thank the federal gov
ernment for collatitng and publishing
to the world thiese official figures, for
fliey ar'n asiint answer to th.ma
from Iowa, the man from Illinois, and
the man from Cichigan, who cimes
down on a trip to look the situation
over and because things happen not
to be done exactly in the way he is
doing then, begins to discourse at
length about the great productive
power of his country and to scorn the
conditions that his eyes 'rest upon
"1 meet such every day, and here
after, for this yeast at least, I shall
keep these federal official figures with
me all the time, and when I strike
sm:ch a man, quietly hand them to him
to study and thenin a brotherly man
ner advise him to come aind 'make his
home in what ten years ago, when
conditions were pitiaole, I was hold
