Jas. H, Moore, of Long Crook, has
a fine Hold of Mammoth Yellow soy
beans which wore four feot high and
lapping tho rows two weeks ago. Mr.
Mooro states that bo bas been grow
ing them for six years. His two-acre
Hold shows that ho knows something
about growing thom. Tho dreaded
Mexican bean bootle was beginning
to work on them, but had already
danutged tho peas nearby to a great
er extent) showing his preference for
peas ?head of soy beans. Tho finest
sort of cabbages and Lookout Moun
tain Irish potatoes thrived on this
place. Mr. Mooro and othors of this.,
section of the county could make a
splendid showing at tho County Fair.
Rev. L. H. Raines, of Long Creek
Academy, has a Hold of Peach Plow
Trish pot a iocs, two acres in extent,
which will rival the best In tho coun
ty. More laud is hoing cleared and
a first-class1 orchard will bo estab
lished by Mr. Raines and by tho
school nt an carly ditto.
And speaking of irish potatoes,?
many a traveler along tho main high
way between Walhalla and Seneca
has paused In tho mad rush of speed
to look upon the four acres of Peach
Plow and Lookout. Mountain Irish

hundred pounds of 8-4-1 fertilizer

tho continued dry weather this field
would probably have been one of
tho rocord fields of tho county. Soy
heans and Mung beans' also thrive
on this place.*
John Cannon, of Ebenezer School

?liberally in building up this run

"1 sowed one and three-quarters
acrqs, seeding it about Sept. 20th,"
says Mr. Foster. "I began preparing
Hie land in January by faking out
stumps and scattering manure the
preceding year. Then sowed peas
and then rye* for the land. Turned
the land iii March with .tractor and
disc plow, and then harrowed it. In
May I sowed threo bushels of peas.
In August these vines wore cut un

".Five tons of ground limestone
per acre was applied just preceding
the sowing of the^ pens, and ?.,00 0
pounds of acid phosphate per aore
also. '
"Then the pens wore cut with disc
barrow and turned under with trac
tor and disc. Tho field was harrow
ed several times' beforo seeding, thus
allowing tho soil to become settled
and make tho seed bed fine on top.
The alfalfa was seeded Sept. 20.
