Two Big Field Meetings.

Thursday, Sept. 7th, nt ? p. m.
Anderson-Wado Drake's farm, on
Friday, Sept. 8th, at 3 p. nu
Oconco farmers arc invited to bO
present on a tour of inspection of
theso two farms, under tho leader
ship of N. E. Winters, soil fortuity
specialist, and S. M. 'Byars, Ander
son County Agent.
ACTUAL' RESULTS of plowing
under vetch and velvot bean crops
for sevoral years will bo seen, and
tho results explained by N. E. Win
tors, ''tho Willy Sunday of Agricul
ture." ;
Mr. Gaines, of Townvillo, is one r f
tho pioneer vetch growors of this
part of the country, and ho has
achieved marvolous results with tho
hairy vetch, "the klug of win tor leg
umes."" In gathering freo nitrogon
from the air, Muscle Shoals looks
small beside Mr. dalnes* votch crops.
Every farmer within forty miles
should bo on hand to soo the won
derful results obtained With hairy
votch mixed with oats and rye.
At Wade Drake's farm tho results
of vdch and crimson clover cover
crops will bo seen, and for tho third
consecutive time those prosont will
witness tho hold of corn whore large
applications of nitrate of soda failed
lo show any results, duo to the soil
having abundant supplies of nitro
gen brought: down from tho air
through summer and winter log
umos, liming and. proper fertiliza
tion, chiefly with acid phosphate.
At Mr. Drako's the party will also
seo tho results of his boll weevil poi
soning experiments of this season.
Mr. Drake used one largo duster and
several small dusters in his poison
ing, and ls reported to havo achieved
very good results. This experiment
will be equally as interesting as the
soil building, which lattor work has
made'Wade Drake famous through
out 'this part or tii? South.
Mr. Drako is also director from
this district in tho Cotton Growers'
Co-operative Association, and those
members who. wish to ash some
"MU estions ..bout tho handling of their
cotton should take ibis opportunity
lo.see Mr. IV.-?kc.
Oconco Coming; lo the Front.
Oconco has sevoral men, who aro
demonstrating tho use of winter
cover crops and summer legumes iii
tho economical building of a fertile
s'oil who aro hoing visited to-day
(Wednesday) by parties of farmers.
Within a few years wo should have
several farmers wlio havo practically
tho same outstanding success in soil
building that Mr. Drako has made.
"Poor Soil, Door Farmer; Rich
Soil, Rich Farmer."
A farmer's time could bo spout In
no bettor way than by taking ono or
both of theso trips. Orders will be
booked for a co-oporatlvo order of
votch seed at these meetings. Those
seed can probably bo bought for 15
cents, delivered, in a largo lot. A
chock must accompany each order.
Without check NO ORDER WILL
BE SENT IN, as theso seed will bo
bought AT COST. Any difference in
price will be pro-rated back.
Crimson clover can probably be
bought cheapest now from farmers'
stock in tho chaff, advertised iij farm
papers, tho Market Bulletin and in
local newspapers. ?
Clotho tho Earth Green.
Two-thirds of the faco of tho earth
in Oconoe county should bo sown
down this fall - oats, ryo, wheat,
oats and vetch, rye and vetch, bur
clover, crimson clover, red clover
and alfalfa.
The fellow who thinks ho "can't
grow nothiii' but cotton" had hotter
stop fanning. If ho hasn't alroady
stopped bc soon Will. While cotton
will continuo to bo grown in Oconco
to grow, nor cnn it bo grown as
cheaply as it was before thc advent
of the weevil. Thus tho farmer must
bo an "all-lho-year-round" farmer.
At this limo great attention should
bo given tho preparation for sowing
down tho farm in grains, clovers
and vetch.
Sowing the clovers, grains and
vetch requires very Httlo prepara
tion, as they aro usually sown In,
tho cotton and corn middles With
grain drills and tho clover broad
casted and lightly covered with a
cultivator or wldo, shallow sweep.
They respond to good preparation,
however, but require a firm seed bed.
Inoculation Is a necessity whero clo
ver or vetch ls sown for tho first
time. Get tho soil from a field that
has grown tho same or a similar
crop, Legumes that tako the same
Inoculation are: Vetch and garden
poas (English) ; crimson clovor ar.d
red clovor; bur cloveir and alfalfa.
