More Corn Than
N owfi and Courier.
To the Editor of The News and
Courier: For years The News
and Courier haw urged the fanners
of South Carolina to plaut
and produce enough of the
cereals to render themselves selfsupporting
and independent, but,
inasmuch as no plan was suggested
by which the farmers could
increase the yield of cereals
without curtailing the acreage of
cotton, the advice, though wise
and sound, has fallen on deaf or
inattenti *e ears.
i propose to present in this
paper a system of farming hv
which the small farmer, and the
big planter as well, may double
his production of corn without
diminishing his yield of cotton,
i and at the same time fultill a
promise made to the farmer edi
lor of The News and Courier. I
can think of no better way to do
this than by submitting my own

und cultivating a crop.
I liist break my land with sixinch
one-horse ploughs. Then
lay of! the whole of it in rows
four feet apart, purposing to
plant every two consecutive rows
in corn, leaving tiie adjacent
rows to be planted later in cotton.
In the furrows to be bedded
for cotton I put all of my stable
lot, cowpeu manure and cornpout
as far as they will go, and to
that add two hundred pounds of
acad phosphate, and whore commercial
manure alone is applied
I put four hundred pounds of
acid phosphato and cotton seed
meal, mixed in equal parts, per
acre. About the middle of March
I plant my corn, dropping a
grain in eacn step of the plough
man, who opens the furrows
atr-sh, and u cotton planter fol
lows, covering the seed. That is
to say, rows one and two are
plantod in corn, drilled about
two feet, apart in the furrow, and
rowMhree and lour are loft to
be planted afterwards in cotton.
Then live and six are plantod in
corn, and seven and eight left for
cotton, and so on, till tiie whole
crop of corn is planted.
About the middle of April the
rows left for cotton arc* bedded
at.(J .the cotton planted with a
planter. When the cotton rows
are planted it will bo the same

subsequent ploughing of the cotf

Ap soon as the cotton ha? been
planted the young corn will be
large enough to be plowed with
h hull-fongiied plough, and a furrow
on each Hide of the corn rown
will be boliicieut lor tue time.
Later unother furrow lapped
upon that with a pix inch turn
nig plough will leave the corn in
condition tor the cultivation to
be finished with '.a sweep, while
ploughing the cotton.
A farmer will sec at once that

corn with this ploughing, which
would be correct, the cotton costs
that much less to produce. Then,
by combining the two crops, tho
viold of corn is doubled. Kv thin
system a farmer would always
have earn to sell or to dispose of
in some other way, such as feeding
more hogs, cattle, poultry,
etc., and while doubling his
yield of corn and increasing his
production ot cotton ho can culI
tivute more land and at less cor-t
j than by the old system in which
I the crops of corn and cotton are|
I plumed in separate holds. Ail
being together, the working of
! the corn is not neglected in
i rainy seasons in order to got the
! grass killed in the cotton held. 1
jsaidthnt a fanner planting by
rnv system will always have a
i surplus of corn to r-ell or to feed
to cattle, hi gs or poultry, and

of feeding large quantities of
corn to cattle and hogs and poultry.

Am soon as the farmer begins
to feed and fatten hogs and cattle
the land about Ins homestead be
gins to improve permanently no
j matter how poor a s tnd hill ho
may have chosen to build on. In
! the tar East the cow is regarded
I fiR n sacred animal, and she
I ought to be so considered here,
i for intelligently managed she 'm
:im unmixed blessing. Any far
nier, no matter flow poor his land
may be, with this system of farming
can in a tew years become
independent and self-supporting.
It is a lixed fact that no farmer
! fails to prosper and progress who
I habitually hells corn or corn
{products, such as bacon, pork J
I butter, beef, etc. On each Bidet
ot every corn row cow peas should I
be piauted, and fertilized with
phosphate, the cheapest fertilizer
in the market, but the best for
peaH, then the next year when
the cotton is planted where the
corn grew the preceding year
there need be no expenditure of
money for nitrogen, which cotton
must have, and which is expensive
for the pea roots store up
i nitrogen' sufficient for any suc!
ceediug crop whereyer they grow
I luxuriantly. Velvet beans are
! Hotter than peas, however, for
i sandy land, because t.hev vield
j so enormously of humus if propjerly
fertilized, and seed grown in
thus latitude used for planting.
! The Florida growu seed will not
I mature here in time. The first
I velvet beans that I planted were
| disappointing, hut I planted the
few peed that matured, and the
following season found that my
beans matured pleritoouslv before
frost, as Mr. Varn, the Florida
planter, told me would happen.
This year I have about, half mv
crop with velvet heanw climbing
i the corn stalks while the other
! half has the running cowpeaa on
double rows. This system of
farming would in five years'
time, if generally adopted, so
build iiu the State as to cause
those who see it now to wonder
then. It would make true for
the sand hill of South Carolina
what the poet in prophetic hen
saw for the gullied, red clay hill
