Farmer and Merchant Get Together.
In regard to planting Spanish Pea
uts in Clarenadon county" on a more ex
tensive scale than heretofore, I desire
to say that, for more than six years in
esrkation of this valuable plant there
seems to be nothing with more protdise
to our farmers as a third cssh .erop
than this ty pe of Peanut. Many of our
farmers have long since recognized the
superor feedinir value of Spanish Pea
nuts, and especially patches for hog -
ing, and have used them largely for
this purpose, but, few' if any know
that this same little shriveled,. measly
looking Spanish Peanut now has an all
the year round cash market and. is
growing more in demand -every year.
hese Peanuts are now being used by
the Sea Islaod Cotton Oil Co., of Char.
leston, S. C., who make both oil and
raluable stock feed from them.
Our land is admirably adapted to the
growing of these Peanuts anti, in view
>f tere being a certain cash market
for them they will often turn out more
et cash returns to the acre than any

s insurance against failure of other
rain crops cannot be successfully di+

i ni roiren gatherer is t land improver.
Where Peanuts are planted, the use of
ie, which is very necessary leaves
uh land in excellent shape for subse
luent crops of oats, wheat or legumes,
such as clovers, etc.
The length of time it takes to make
, crop of Spanish Peanuts, about four
nonths, is another big factor to-con'.i&
tr in thbeir favor. The same land can

That on the left was properly pruned. 1
The habits of growth and fruit- i
bearing of the bunch grape make it c
easy to prune and the work can be
done much more systematically than ,
with most other fruits: Furthermore,
it will stand very severe pruning with- t
out injury. The fruit is borne on new I
shoots from the preceding year's c
growth and unless the vine is con- c
tinually cut back, the fruiting area t
will become farther removed from the f
main stem each year and will produce t
long, naked canes, which - serve no t
purpose other than to convey plant
food to the, more remote fruit-bearing t
parts. Moreover, if the vine is left to
itself, more fruit will form than the S
plant can properly. develop. The im- 3
portant objects in pruning, then, are I
to get the most bearing wood in the I
smallest space and to limit the bear- 1
ing wood according to the ability of i
the vine to produce well developed s
fruit. Not infrequently vines are al
lowed to retain too much bearing wood I
and there is a consequent waste of 1
energy in the production at many 4
small, inferior bunches. For best re- j
sults, our common varieties more than
four years old should be pruned ,w as 1
to bear not more than fro sevety
to one hundred clusters.
The method of pruning Ie. deterain- I
edin part by the kind of training i
practiced. There are severel good 1
systems. One of the simplest, which 1
is also one of the- best for the South. I
Is that known as the double Knlfiin
system of training, in which are de
veloped two trunks, each of which 4
carries two arms trained to a two- i
wire trellis. 1
Use a one- or two-year-old vine tot 1
transplanting and cut back the top to 4
three or four strong buds. That vig- 1
orous canes may be produced, rub off
all shoots that appear during summer,
except the strongest three. Only two
shoots are necessary, but it is well
to leave three, in case' one should be

m in October, in ordier that. the
ants may become established before
vere winter weather begins and that
ie onions may grow off rapidly in
ring and mature early in June.
11l, if seed are planted very early
spring and conditions are favor
ble, they will make good .onions, al
mgh they will be smaller and later
ha those from fall-sown seed..
nions should be planted on very
ndy loam. Alter the land has been
oroughly prepared by deep plowing
nd repeated harrowing, apply ferti

one-half to three-fourths of an
