Two Alken Cotinty Farmers Gio Into
New W*of Agriculture. Meet WithI
Alken, .uly 29.--W. W. Holley, Sr.,
and W. W. lLu1cy, .Jr., who live . few
miles from the city of Aiken and who
are disciples of the splendid gosl)el of
diversifl6d farming, have this year be
tween, thirty-live and forty acres of as
good tolacco as is grown anywhere
in the State of South Carolina, so says
the field agent of the Southern Rail
way. Mr. Perrin further says he Is of
the opinion that. with the possible ex
ception of a few stretches of rather
bad land, tle soil of Aiken County is
as a whole admiral21c for tle purposes
of tobacco'cultivation, and if it were
taken up on the proper scale, as good
trIlmeco as, is grown anywhere In the
tobacco belt could be produced in
Aiken County with about half tile work
required to raise cotton and at a deal
Hlowever, for soino reason lie farb
ers of Aiken County have never taken
very intensively or seriously to the
cultivation of tobacco, and (lie Iolleys
are practically pioneers In this phase
or farming, so far as Aiken County
Is concerned; it being understood that.
with tle exception o a ten-acre patch
at EIllenton, this county, no other to
bacco is grown in tle county. But
lespite the fact that this is their first
year with tobacco and that they have
been hampered not a little by Inex
periqence, tle Ilolleys have on the
whole been very successful With this
first- crop, tile most substantial dif
ficulty now con froiting them heing the
iatter of a market, since so far the to
bacco industr y in Aiken County is not
large enough to wairant the establish
mieint of (,%v(ei a branch market.
May Increase Scale.
However, If this difliculty can be ob
viated and (the Product disposed of at
a reasonable profit, Ithese very pro
gressive farmers expect next year to
cultivate tobacco on a more extensive
scale, since they have already paid
this year the first and big expense of
initlal preparation and now can in
crease their acreage' without having
to make at the saime time any very ia
terial increase in expenditures.
Four barns have been erected for
curing the tobacco. 'Phe first barn-lot
was cured last week. Although it was
the first. tobacco gathered and coin
posed inaluly of the grodind leaves, it
was a very pretty grade of tobacco,
notwitlhstanding the leaves being ex
ceptionally large and bright, and the
Iiollk1W darkies are already substitut
