FACTS ABOUT COMET.
Dates on Which Big' Carnet
W?I be Visible. Facts
That Should be
y ? . ' ? ' - . . .
Halley's comet is fast speeding to
ward -the'earth and in anot&er week
will be visible with the aid of-strong
glasses in $he early ? morning in the
East. Scientist all over the world
are deeply interested in the comet's
coming and while the average run
of people : know very little about
such things, they are preparing to
enjoy or be awed and thrilled by
the-gorgeous spectacle which will
soon fill the sky just the same..
On, April 16 it will rise at 4
On April 24 i> will rise at 3.30
After May 20 it wilL.be seen in
the West after sunset.
Oh May ?>4 it will rise at 3 p. m.
On May 20 it sets at 7.45 p.m.
On May 30 it sets at 10 p. m.
After the isis of June the comet
will be faint and will soon disap
pear out of sight.
It will probably be visible to the
naked eye by the middle of April,
- but it will then be in, the morning
sky and one must look for it in the
East about tr/0 hours before sun
rise. On ^Hy 14 the comet will pass
directlj between the earth and the
sun ,nd will Jae only 13,000,000
roiT<?8 from the earth. This will be
it? closest approach to the earth
and after this ? date the comet will
move rapidly away from the earth
and sun and will soon be lost to
view. On account of its rapid mo
tion it will be seen in the West'
again in the evening, from. May 20
until the early part of June, when it
-will fade rapidly as it hastens on
ward, along its outward path.
For some days_ before and after
May 18, if the prognostications of
astronomers are correct, th?Njo.met
will be , a magnificent object. It's
???ead is over 190,000 miles in diame
ter, and its tail is . moravian 5,000,

growing; Without doubt the bril-,

CURTAIL COTTON CROP.
In Order to Avoid Possible Dis
aster Farmer's Should Re
duce Cotton Acreage
I All reports indicate that the mills
I will by concerted action make a de
termined effort to keep down the
price of cotton. The farmers can

troling production of raw material.
.The following is a dispatch that
was sent out from Boston a few
days ago which shows what is"being
done to'curtail production by the"
"Fifty per cent of tb/ spindles in
southern cotton mills are, idle, ac
cording to statistics which have^
been assembled by the American
Wool and Cotton Reporter.
"The ligures show that the cur-/
tailnient in progress i not only in the
south but in ail sections of the coun
try, both north .and south, is more
extensive and drastic than has ever
be?n'known in the history of the
trade, even taking into considera
tion tte panic year of/1907.
'"The greatest curtailment comes
among the yarn mills, although re
striction of production among weav
ing mills is greater than ever be
fore. Mill after mill is closing
down entirely, until new cotton ar
rives or market conditions improve,
while, with the. majority of others
the amount of curtailment varies
from 20 to 100 per cent, with many
mills running on orders only. The
following, are the percentage of
spindles idle by states.
"Alabama, 36. per cent; South

Mr. J..W. JWarsh Winner of
Second Prize States How
Land Was Prepared and
By request "oj: the edftor of The
Advertiser, Twjill endeavor to give
the preparation and cultivation of
ray contest acre/ My land had not
been planted; i?;'a leguminous crop
for six years; .'therefore, it was not
in proper state^pf cultivation to ob-,
tain: best r?sultai On March 1st,
1909, I cut th? cotton stalks with a
cutter and oirtfre ?th cut them with
a disk harrow? patting them in
small pieces .and' pulverizing the
land at'the sarijcktime. At that time
the land was .Vipet and cold and I
could not plow.'jiscleep as I desired.
On March lfltb I laid, off land 6
feet-8 inches, v; with intention of
planting a rpw?in the middle later
in the seasou. '^'bedded out with a
single plow asleep ass a horse could
pull, leaving a?smalh ridge in mid
dle. On April '5th I straddled thu
ridge with disk .harrow pulverizing'
the soil well ?n# throwing the dirt
toward the bed.. The: same day l
broke out the sjnall ridge and fol
lowed with.subsoil. I put the plant
er -immediately"behind the subsoil,
putting the corn nine inches apart.
The corn came, up a very good
stand. x . " -'
On May vStfy I centre-furrowed
with shovel aud; followed with sub
soil, breaking, tie land about niue
inches and then bedded, to centre
furrow with turn plow, following
each furrow,with subsoil to corn,
leaving corn on narrow ridge for
about one month. During ttiis time
the corn was in a dormant state and
became as yellow as gold.'
On June 4th,; .the corn was then
about 15 inches high, ran around it
with. 18-inclf Qrangeburg sweep and
applied the -first fertilizer, 1445
pounds in these; furrows. The fer

the following compost: 20 bushels
cotton seed, 400 pounds of 16 per

cow barn manure. Immediately
covered this with "Dixie-Boy. Then

it only surface culture. June 15th
I plowed out with spring-tooth har
row. At this time the eorn was
about 4 feet'bigh. On June 22nd I
plowed very shallow with Victor
sweep. On June-30th planted second
crop in middle*, though this was not
profitable. Seasons did not suit it
and am sure my original crop was
cut shoit by trying to cultivate mid
The total cost of fertilizers on
original ero p.was $36.20, counting
cotton seed at market price and
stable manure at 81.50 per load.
This gives me a profit of 850 per
acre aside from the 10 won in your'
contest, which gave nie $60 net
profit per acre at feed* price for
corn, though I am selling this corn
at $2.50 per bushel for planting. So
you may figure returns from the

I gathered my corn about 10th of

of forage which will be worth $1.75,

After this crop is cut I will put
it to cotton and am expecting two.

good rain would like for you to see
the forage in about two weeks. I
believe agriculture is now in its in
fancy. We do not know what can
be made from lands of our God
favored section and1 we should at
?least be up and doing and striving
for the gold.
You are doing a good work by
arousing enthusiasm for corn rais

to say at the moment. Tell the boys

Twelve Things To Do This
1. Get the land ready for plant
ing staple crops. Don't stop with
plowing, but narrow and re4iarrow
until a perfectly pulverized seed
bed- is made. The best paying
work is done before planting.
2. " Get good seeds for planting
all crops. Don't depend on just
what you cari pick up anet don't
wait till planting time to buy or
3." Select, .prepare and plantspe:
cial "seed patches" for your seed
corn and cotton another year. ,
4. Get the harrows and weeders
out and bepn using them. The
new H's-1 Hordes and Harrows"
will do twice the work of the old
H's-"Hired Hoe Hands." -v .*
5. Keep the fire out of the fields.
As Dr. Knapp says, "Use more
sense and less ! fire." The greatest
need of our Southern soils is humus,
the most expensive fertilizer is ni-,
troge'n; rotting trash and grass^sup
6- Keep the garden going. Don't
forget that almost everything from
radishes to beans and from lettuce
to corn should be planted this
I. Spray and prune and cultivate
your orchard. Don't turn it over
to the fungus diseases and insect
pests, even if it is a little late to
start fighting them.
8. Arrange a series of lots for
hog pasturing. With Southern pas
turing crops we can make pork
more cheaply than Western far
mers can, but ive can't compete
using corn alone.
9. Get I usy in the peultry yard.
Don't have chicks hatched with no
provision made to take care of them
and don't put it off until hot weather.
10. Give the work horses special
care. Don't allow them to get poor
or havethemsuffering from sorebacks
II. Screen the doors and win
dows, clean up the back yard and
about the barn, get rid of stagnant
water about the house. Flies car
ry typhoid; mosquitoes cause ma
laria. Keep them out.
12. Fix up the-house and yard.
Don't allow your home to be lack
ing in that beauty which is its in
herent right.-Progressive Farmer..
