Vetch Continues High.
Prices secured from large dealers
In farm seods during tho past fow
days show that vetch prices aro
strengthening, lt is, therefore, ad
visable to order sood without dolay.
Crimson clover sood aro somewhat
cheaper than vetch, especially 'when
bought in tho chaff direct from tho
growers, and those sood can bo used
to advantage on good sandy loam
?oils when thoroughly inoculated
with soil from a crimson or red clo

bought for $1.85 to $2.00 and should
bo usod to a large extent this fall.

Visited Drake's Farm.
Approximately five hundred farm?
ors from over tho entire upper sec
tion of South Carolina wore on hand
last Friday at Wade Drake's farm
to seo for themselves his soil-build
ing methods. The long line of men
stretched across Mr. Drake's cotton
flold for a quarter of a milo, follow
ing X. E. Winters, who lod the way
and used a largo megaphone to ox
plain to' tho crowd what was hoing
shown. Quite a few leading farmer
of Oeonoo wore on hand, much inter
ested in what was being shown.
All of Mr. Drake's soventy acres
of cotton had boen dusted four timos
i with calcium nrsenato dust accord
ing to tho government schedule. Mr.
Dmke figures that this cost him $2.5 0
an aero. Ho dusted four timos in
July and quit !n August on account
of tho dry, windy and almost dewless
nights. Squares were picked up un
til dusting started tho ilrst of July.
Xoighbors stated that Mr. Drake had
tho woovll as thickly In tho begin
ning ns anybody. Tho dusting was
done properly DY MR. DRAKE HIM
SELF and his son. Ho did not trust
otliors to do tho work. Mr. Drake Is
well ploasod with tho rosults, and his
holds show a good crop of bolls which
will como very near averaging a halo
por aero. A dlfforoneo in crops fol
lowing crimson clover or volvet
heans plowed under was vory clearly
shown as compared to land on which
no legumes wero plowed under.
The 17lh big gully was Just begin
ning to bo filled up by Mr. Drake. A
largo bank of soil was puilod across !
tho lower end of tho 12-foot gully |
and a ditch arranged at ono sido for
tho escapo of oxcoss water noar tho
ton of tho fill. Corn with VELVET
BEANS In a row down tho middles
botweon tho corn rows was in ovory
flold. Corn with volvet beans follow

As a fertilizer under Ins colton Mr.
Drako used 3 00 pounds acid phos

and 100 pounds of fish scrap at a
cost of $7.35 flor acre. It is doubt
ful whether the fish scrap was nood
