PREPARATION FOR COTTON
Plowing and Fertilization Will Be i
Found Advantageous Just Now.
The average cotton planter has but ,
little conception of the necessity of
thoroughly preparing cotton land.
Most of them regard plowing as slm
ply a necessity only when the land
Is overrun with grass or weeds. How- j
ever, many are getting out of the idea, j
and realize that plowing at other j
times is a prime object in securing j
good crops, and in this connection j
they aro particularly realizing that j
fertilization or feeding to the plant j
certain plant food at the time of plow- J
lng. is also a very Important Item nec-!
essary to the successful out-turn ofj
a crop; especially at this season of i
the year, when there Is little else to |
do, plowing can be carried on U> great I
advantage, and it will lessen the
amount of work necessary later in
the season, when there is a rush on
There are certain rules which must
be observed on the farm In plowing
at this season. There is a possibility
that the new soil will be too wet and
sliould not be turned up and allowed
to sun-dry. This permits the plant
food to escape, and more than this,
it practically deadens the soil so ex-
posed in its wet Btate.
Harrowing tho soil is practically un-
heard of in cotton farming, nnd yet
there are tens of thousands of nc/es
of corn and other grain land In the
great grain belt that is always thor-
oughly harrowed before the crop is
planted. Farmers who will harrow
a small piece of cotton land will find
the experiment Very profitable. The
Idea to be carried out under tho pres-
ent conditions is to accomplish as
much as poasiblo With the least ex-
penditure of labor. To do this it is
necessary to have a half dozen flings,
but early plowing Is one of tho most
essential—thorough cultivation, a good
season, and above all, high fertiliza-
tion and proper handling of tho crop
will work wonders. Try the plan of
special preparation on a few acres.
Look out for tho difference In prof-
its and see if It will not Justify fewer
acres.—J. C. McAullffe, in "Farm and
OPPORTUNI7IHII IN ONIONS,
Oireat Profits Are Possible to Careful,
Probably no vegetable shown t
greater Increase In consumption than
the onion. Not only is domestic stock
largely increased, but the Importation
of Spanish and Bermuda onion is ot
great volume annually.
Tho onion is not only nutritions,
but possesses great medicinal proper-
ties for clearing the complexion and
renovating the system.
Market gardeners are now giving
as much attention to cultivating on-
ions us in raising cabbago, and al-
though the volume of production
shows reasonable growth, the market
has not been glutted with the stock.
The onion is a voracious feeder,
and thrives best on rloh soil; much
lands composed largely of Humus are
admirably adapted to the crop. The
land needs to be well underdrained
and protected from overflow, as wa-
ter standing on tho crop for any length
of time will destroy the bulbs.
Commercial fertilizers are used, and
these fertilizers should be rich in pot-
ash to insure a good bottoming of the
crop. Not all muck lands are natural-
ly adapted to onion culture, but can
easily be made adaptable to the crop.
Success in onion culUire demands
Industry and vigilance.
The white and yellow onion require
five pounds of seed sown to tho acre,
in rows fourteen inches apart, to in-
sure a good stand.
Tho large white globe variety re-
quire six pounds of seed per aire.
The weeds -must be kept down be-
tween the rows with a hand cultiva-
tor and out of the rows by hand weed-
ing. Onion raising is an industry ad-
mirably adapted to the farmer on a
large scale, or to truck gardoners who
sell their truck around cities. It. Is
an easy cultivated crop. Like picking
berrleB, children ten or twelve yoars
of age can do much of the weeding.
In raising onions the fashion of the
market should be considered, in tho
East the Rmall white and yellow on-
ions aro the most popular. In tho
West the large white, and in tho
South, tho red onion. Tho flat bulbs
two the most popular, and the color
can be Improved by the proper moth-
od of harvesting tho crop, which
should bo stored in a dry shed after
having been cured two to'four days
In the sun. The crop, like ithe apple,
can bo made nvost attractive by prop-
er grading and marketing in crates.

Now is tho time to think about the
price of cotton next fall. By diversi-
fying and properly restricting cotton
acreaKe, the total yield can be kept
within limits where tho price will be
satisfactory. That is really the only
sure way of playing the game. Tho
speculators have all along tried to
frighten tho farmers with two bug-
bears; first, that the mills had sup-
plies to last for two years; second, the
mills would close down. Well, an
Idle mill Is a dead loss to the owner,
It can not be turned to anything else;
whereas tho farmer can chnnge his
cotton factory to a corn, oats, wheat,
cabbage and potato factory, and still
manage to get returns for his Invest-
ment and and his labor. Hence, If the
farmer will but Intelligently regulate
his prices by the law of supply und
demand, there can be no reason, out-
side of his own lack of coheslveness,
why he should not win the day. Nat-
urally, the spinners try to get cotton
as cheap as possible and no one
blames them for that. Why then cen-
sure tho farmers when they try to
get the best price for their products?

Save all the Manure Possible.
Keep the stable lot well littered
with leaves nnd straw for the stock's
sake and for the land's sake, is the
advice given by the Southern Farm
Gazette. A load of manure in the sta-
ble Is worth more to the farmer than
a sack of fertilizer at the factory.
There Is a great deal more in stable
manure than mere plant food. It con-
tains myriads of bacteria that in some
way unknown to the average farmer
break down and liberate plant food In
the soil, which make it of far moro
value than commercial fertilizer con-
taining an equal amount of plant food.

Just a Texas Pig.
H. E. Slngletan recently shipped a
ten-months old Poland-China pig to
the A. and M. ColUgo of Texaa at
Ilryan that surpassed any hog of its
age we ever saw. It tippod the beam
at 3G5 pounds, nnd, besides Its weight,
It was pronounced by judges to be a
model hog and of the most perfect
typo of the thoroughbred registered
Poland-China breed. The A. and M.
College paid Mr. Singleton the fancy
price of $100 for this boar. A litter
mate of this same hog was bought
several months ago by A. L. Priest, of
ChambersvUle, for $(iO. Many years

study, observation and travel are
