Washington On Trusts.
Even in revalutionary times there
were “trusts”—in miniature, of coarse,
compared with the gigantic trusts of
today—which “cornered” supplies and
fattened upon the famine of the peo
ple and of the patriotic Continental
army. Writing of them, Washington
“It gives me sincere pleasure to find
that the assembly of Pennsylvania is so
well disposed to second your endeavors
in bringing the murderers of cur cause,
the monopolizers, forestalled and en
grossers, to condign punishment. It
is much to be lamented that each
state, long ere this, has not hunted them
down as pests to society and the great
est enemies we have to the happiness of
America. I would to God that some
one of the most atrocious in each state
was hang in gibblets upon a gallows five
times as high as the one proposed by
Hamau. No punishment, in my opin
ion, is too great for the man who builds
his greatness upon his country’s ruin.”
DOES IT PAY TO BUY CHEAP?
A oheap remedy for coughs and colds
is all right, but you want something
that will relieve and cure the more se
vere and dangerous results of throat and
lung troubles. What shall you do? Go
to a warmer and more regular climate?
Yes, if possiple; if not posible for you,
then in either case take the ONLY rem
edy that has been introduced in all civ
ilized countries with success for severe
throat and lungs troubles, Boschee’s

stimulates the tissues to destroy the
germ disease, but allays inflammation,
causes easy expectoration, gives a good
night’s rest, aud cures the patient. Try

HOW TO CROW WHEAT
PRIZE WINNER W. 1\ WALKED
GIVES THE METHODS
IT PAYS BETTER THAN COTTON
Unnecessary to Specially Prepare th<
Land Before Sowing end Sta
ble Mauure Favored.
To the Editor of the Macon Telegraph:
Having won the first prize for the
largest yield of wheat on 1 acre, also
on 4 acres of land in Middle Georgia,
I have received many requests for infor
mation in regard to my method of prep
aration, culture, etc., I ask space in
your columns to give the result of sev
eral years successful wheat growing,
hoping thereby to present to your many
readers some ideas that will be of bene
fit to them. I will write of this sub
ject by answering the practical ques
tions that are usually asked me.
Question —When is the best time to
Answer—Just after the first freeze or
killing frost in November.
By waiting until then many insects
that are so destructive to wheat are de
stroyed. To sow in October wheat
would be more liable to get killed in
early spring. As to the kind of laud I
suggest that you sow your best upland.
Nearly all wheat growers are partial to
red land, but I must say that two of the
poorest yields I ever had were on red
land. Tell me what season will
be next April and M*y and I can tell
you the kind of soil that will give the
My wheat land is not specially pre
pared for sowing. I sow wheat after
ootton that has been well cultivated. If
the stalks are large I usually drag some
thing over them, after which I plow
them up with a scooter plow and let
them remain where they are.
Q.—What is the beat manure, and
how do you nse it ?
A.—l use all manures broadcast
Nothing better than stable manure.
Oow manure, when obtained from cot
tonseed meal and hulls, equals anything
you oan use. Cottonseed are fine for a
rainy season, and will not leach like
other manures. As to commercial fer
tilizers, I know nothing of them. But
you can always rely on acid phosphate
and cottonseed meal, mixed two of aeid
to one of meal. Though dryer the sea
son the better the result Too much
meal will kill the seed wheat at the
time of germination.
Q.—What variety of wheat do yon
A.—lt is purple straw.
Q.—How do yon treat your seed
A.—l shake all of the small grains
possible out of the wheat by passing
through a fan over a 8 16 inch sieve at
about 80 degrees incline. If you cannot
secure your seed in that way go to some
place in your field where you have only
ordinary wheat and there cat off enough
for your seed. It ie perfectly natural
for wheat to have two grains to the
mesh, and when you grow more than
two yon will find a great many email
Q— Why select the best gralne for
A—Because it is the mother to the
little plant. The larger the grain the
more vitality it has, the more uniform is
its growth and all the plants are more
able to withstand injuries. To get the
growth aud ripening more uniform in
crease the yield, and to increase the
yield improves the seed.
Q.—How do you keep down smut?
A—l have never seen any smut iif
my wheat Neither will you if you
will annually put one-quarter of a pound
of well pulverized buestone into 1 gal
lon of boiling water. When dissolved
pour it over 1 bushel of wheat while hot
and stir until every grain is wet After
you have done this you should apply
slack lime just as much as will adhere
to each grain. You will find this to be
very profitable. The wheat will grow a
little taller and will stand a much harder
winter than without this application. I
sow my wheat broadcast in the manure
so as to give the little plant all the
strength and vigor possible during the
Q How rnnch wheat must we aow
per aore in order to get the best results?
A.—lf you select your seed wheat as
you do your corn, I say sow nothing less
than one bushel per acre. An acre of
land that will require two bushels to be
well seeded can be sown with one
bushel, and the yield will be nearly at
good, but not near so satisfactory.
Why? Because when it is thinly sown
the plant will spread, it shoots up irreg
ularly, is not uniform in growth, does
not ripen evenly, has a coarse strew,
and the only good thing that can be aaid
about it is that it has a good head.
Q —How do yon plow in your grain,
and how deep?
A—l turn under with a common turn
plow, and I suppose the seed could be
found on an average of from 8 to 4
inches under the top of the soiL I level
the ground with a harrow, brush or
anything that will put the ground in
good shape for the harvesting maohine
We have now six months to rest from
seed time till harvest
Q. —At what time do yon cut your
A—When yon see the heads begin to
turn down you can get your maohine
ready for harvest.
Q.— Why not cut on the green order
so as to have better straw?
A.—By so doing yon open up a chan
nel for mold and rust iu your next crop.
Give the little wheat germ all that na
ture calls for, and it will be more able to
ward off the much dreaded diseases.
Now, if we can trust our wheat in
the hands of nature let’s do our fields
likewise. Nature says to man, ditch
your land. Man says to nature, I will
terrace. And we evidently see that
man will follow man, whether he be
right or wrong. But I will add fpr
safety—good seed, good soil and proper
drainage Is a successful road for all
wheat growers to traveL I have seen
wheat under water on terraced land for
nearly a weak at a time. Wheat ie not
rice. Neither U an excesa of water
hemmed up on a hillside in keeping
with the law of nature.
I have been asked if the height of
wheat had anything to do with the
yield. That depends on the seasons and
the amount of manure yon used. Where
I raised tiO bushels of wheat to the acre
last year it grew to be 5 feet tall. I had
another piece equally as tall that grew
only 86 bushels to the acre. The former
was broadcast with barnyard man are,
about 16 loads per acre. Also acid phos
phate, two to one of cottonseed meal,
about 300 pounds per acre. The latter
piece had never been manured with any
barnyard manure, bat was broadcast
with cottonseed, about 15 to 20 bushels
per aore, and acid phosphate two to one
of cottonseed meal, 3(k' pounds per aore.
This pieoe of land, an ordinary year,
will yield about 1,000 pounds of seed
cotton per acre.
You caa safely use 400 pounds of acid
phosphate and cottonseed meal as above
Q. —Will it pay to raise wheat?
A—Yes. I raised last year 350 bush
els of wheat, at f 1.00 per bushel, $360;
13 tons of straw at 30 cents per 100, $72;
14 tons of hay, $140; total, $682. Leav
ing the land benefited 20 per oent. The
expense of these seven acres: Seed
wheat, sl4; preparing land, $7; fertil
izers—cottonseed meal and acid, $17.50;
barnyard manure, $62.60; harvesting,
$10; threshing, $8o; total expense. $136;
leaving $426 profit aud 11 months to
play aud one to work. If I had only
raised one-seventh of what I did I would
have had more profit than if I had raised
one bale of cotton per acre at 6 cents
per pound. Yours truly,
W. P. Walk**.
