| SHALLOW CULTIVATION I
V «j*
At this time of the year we do not
feel the need of conservation of mois
ture, but we will later on. Deep cul
tivation causes a loss of much mois
ture. Shallow cultivation will hold it.
The plowing must be shallow, and es
pecially so from now on, and lots of it.
Press the feet of the Georgia stock
and the cultivator up toward the beam
so that the plow will run flat. Get an
old 14-inch sweep or buzzard-wing a
little later on and sharpen it on the
edge a little; fix it so the dirt will fall
back over the plow. Don’t sweep it
out and-leave a furrow; not too deep
because the plant has to have some
roots to live on, and the more the bet
ter. Deep cultivation will break and
ruin the important life roots after the
,fint cultivation.
Shallow cultivation—two or three
inches, or just deep enough to kill the
weeds and produce a loose much—is
the most satisfactory for corn. By
the time corn is about two feet high
the toots will interlace when the rows
are three and a half feet apart. It
has been found that 300 Ions of water
is required to produce one ton of dry
nutter in corn. To get the oest re
sults then, the moisture must be saved
and the roots must not be injured.
Shallov cultivation kills tlis weeds,
saves the life roots and produces a
dust mulch which conserves the mois
ture.

and crusts. In this condition the soil
moisture evaporates very rapidly and
the cultivators and other means of
light plowing must be set to work to
maintain the much-needed mulch
which holds the moisture. A crust
on the surface of the ground causes
the moisture to be drawn out of the
subsoil to the surface, where it is
quickly lost by evaporation. Run a
light harrow over the ground as soon
as it is possible after a rain, to pre
vent the formation of a crust. Then
shallow cultivation and lots of it will
hold the moisture which will be need
ed so much for big crops.
Good cultivation for the growing
crops is the main object now. Good
cultivation means lots of it, level and
shallow, so as to make a dust mulch,
which conserves the moisture, protects
the live growing life roots which need
the moisture so much. Cultivate shal
low.
Watch for mouldy corn chops. Hun
dreds of horses died at this time last
year from this cause. Balance your
accounts and see if it does not pay to
raise and save feed crops.
Let us live at home.

Commissioner.

J. Murrell and Deputy Sheriff C. 0.
Payne for the state, and the defend
ant, who denied any knowledge of the
crime w'ith which he was charged.
The jury which heard the case was
composed of W. N. Stewart, foreman,
H. E. Vaughan, John Oquin, Carl
Moss, B. J. Coker, Alf Hardin, E. M.
Edwards, Will Mabry, George W.
James, J. H. Glover, A. A. Wood

Immediately after the Will Sims

against Louvida Sims, that of being
an accessory before the fact to a crime
committed by Robert Threet. The

was all in by 3 o’clock this afternoon,
at which time the arguments were be
gun.
During the examination of a wit
ness this afternoon Attorneys R. G.
Bruce and E. M. Merriman engaged
in a heated controversy, and, continu
ing after being admonished by the
court, were fined $5 each for contempt
of court.
The court is progressing rapidly
with the trial of the cases and satis
faction is everywhere expressed over
the manner in which they are being
conducted. After the trial of the ne
gro woman today there remain six
other indictments against five ne
groes to be tried at the special term.

Just read what this ma:. has to say
and profit by his experience: “While
living in Mississippi I used Gregory’s
i Antiseptic Oil for almost everything
|—especially for HOG CHOLERA. It
proved an infallible cure in every
lease. I am now living in Muskogee,
Okla.. and can not get the Oil here,
j Send me four bottles of the 50c size
I at once, as my hogs are sick and I
know it will cure.”
