Winter' Cover Crops. :
, Tbe Agricultural Division of the N
C. ASt. L. Railway.
In pursuing tht agricultural improve
ment work of this department, seeking
to promote the better methods of farm
ing along the company's lines, permi
me to direct your attention to the im
portance of preparing promptly for your
winter cover crops.
It is urgently suggested that every
acre of your corn, cotton and small
grain tanas should be seeded at the
proper time during the late summer to
some form of winter catch crop, to
serve tbe three-fohl purpose of prevent
ing tbe erosion or washing of your land
to store nitrogen and other needed fer
tiltzing elements in your soil and to
provide late fall and early spring graz
ing for your stock. If turned under in
the spring, the cover crop will further
add humus and nitrogen to the soil.
will very greatly improve its mechanical
condition, and will enable it to absorb
and hold more moisture for the succeed
ing crop.
Immediately after harvesting your
small grain crop, it is strongly recom
mended that tbe stubble be thoroughly
disced and turned deep as soon as its
condition will permit. It should be
disced repeatedly to control rass and
weed growth until tbe appearance of a
good season after the first or middle of
August, when tbe cover crop should be
sowu. ' In the meantime, if your soil
has not been analyzed for lime content,
you would be justified in applying and
discing in two tons of ground or pulver
ized limestone per acre; if alfalfa is to
be sown, apply four tons. Eye and
crimson clover or hairy vetch are the
most satisfactory clover crops for green
manuring yet tried in Xennessee and
this section of the South, and are advo-
cated by both State and Federal Gov
ernment agricultural authorities.
Frequent shallow and level cultiva
tion of tbe corn and cotton crops s
urged. Such cultivation may be given
with a one-horse spring-tooth cultivator,
such as may be found ou the market
selling for about $ 6.50. Cultivation
should be continued as late in tbe sea
son as possible to keep down grass and
to conserve moisture, and the cover
crop sown between tbe rows during the
first favorable season after August first
or fifteenth, and harrowed in with' the
epriDg-tooth or spike-tooth V-shaped
barrow. If tbe rows are prepared and
cultivated in ridges, more or less of the
cover crop seed will roll away from the
crest of the ridges toward the center of
tbe furrow between leaving a consldcra
ble area unseeded, and the catcu crop
will appear in rows. If cultivated in
the level, practically the entire surface
of the corn and cotton fields may be
uniformly seeded.
The pugjestions are offered in the
earnest hope that the approaching win
ter season will find tbe grain and cotton
producing areas in tbe territory served
by these lines well covered with green
growing crops, rather than lying bare
and exposed to the season's washing
rains. 1

School Directors.
The new law passed by the last Legis
lature makes it necessary for directors
and teachers to sign a contract before
the school begins. Failure to do so sub
jects the teacher or directors or both to
a fine of twenty-five dollars.
No person can teach without a certifi
cate issued by the State Superintendent.
This certificate must be dated not
earlier than July 1, 1914. No payment
can be allowed to a teacher who has no
certificate. The directors can not issue
the warrant nor can the trustee cash it
without subjecting themselves to a fine
oi noi less man nve aoiiars nor more
than fifty dollars. Be sure to ask your
teacher to present his certificate.
If you bave not made the report of
the scholastic population, please do so
at once as no money can be placed to
the credit of your district till that is
done. Yours verv trulv.
