TELLS HOW TO GROW
CROP OF PEANUTS
Peanuts have been used as a sub
stitute crop for cotton over nearly
every part of the south, where boll
weevil damage has been serious. The
average income per acre has about
equaled the average from cotton. In
southwest Georgia peanuts largely
replaced cotton the weevil came,
and are still extensively grown there.
The type of soil best adapted to
peanut production is one with a sandy
loamy nature, with a well-drained
A finely prepared seed bed about six
inches deep* free from trash is desir
able. A disk harrow should be used
in preparing the seed bed, as it wil!
settle the land, leaving the soil in ex
cellent condition to plant.
A weeder should be run over the
land before the plants come up, and
five to eight days thereafter until the
vines are of sufficient growth to in
terfere with the spiking-down pro
cess. One or two cultivations after
his will be required with a sweep or
Mltivator. Do not disturb the plants
after they begin to spike down, and
no fresh dirt should be thrown to
hem after this time. On good lands
200 to 300 pounds of acid phosphate
or a 10-0-4 acid potash mixture wil!
be found beneficial. On poor lands a
10-2-4 will be a good formula to use.
The White Spanish variety is best
adapted for our market and soil con
ditions, and may be planted from
April to the middle of July. Best re
mits will likely be obtained when
planted latter part of April or May.
The rows are laid off 24 to 30
inches apart and dropped 4 to 0 inches •
in the drill. From 10 to 12 quarts of
shelled, or 2 bushels of seed in the
hull will be required to plant an acre.

YES, BANKS SHOULD ADVER
“Should a bank advertise? The
answer is ‘yes,’ if it has something
w'Srth while to sell. If it is merely a
cold place, where people keep money
for the purpose of checking it out
conveniently, and where an occa
sional accomodation may be had,
then it has nothing to advertise, and
even the money that a bank spends
for what we call ‘card ad’ in the
newspaper is waste. On the other
hahd, if the bank is an institution
that keeps abreast of the times, and
occasionally takes the lead progres
sively in developing new fields of
service, it should be proud ‘to tell
the world’ about it. In short, that
bank owes it to itself and the com
munity to advertise its facilities.”

ISSUED MAY 8
Atlanta, Ga.—Splendid peach, ap
ple and pecan prospects, and one of
the shortest small grain crops since
1918, are features of the report re
leased today by the local statisti
cians of the Georgia Cooperative
Crop Reporting Service.
While there has been some decline
in condition of peaches since last
month, correspondents on May Ist
expecting 80% of a full peach crop,
against a corresponding figure of
86 % on April Ist—the prospects are
still splendid, and arrangements are
being made for marketing a record
crop. Reports of damage by storms
of May Ist were received from some
sections, but the main commercial
crop was not seriously damaged.
Expectations are for the largest
apple crop in the past four or five
years—B4% of a full crop being in
Small Wheat Acreage for Harvest
Only 80,000 acres of wheat sur
vived the severe winter and remain
to be harvested in Georgia this year,
compared with 189,000 aeres ih
1923, 190,000 in 1922, and 138,000
in 1921. Very great improvement in
the crop to be harvested has been
n»ted during the past month, the
condition rising from 58% last
month to 73% of normal at present-
Oats also have shown some im
provement, and are still improving.
However, the extremely small acre
age of fall oats surviving the win
ter and the low yield of spring oats
will give a total production the
shortest since 1918.
Preparation and Planting
Preparation of land and panting
are a little behind last year and
considerably behind the ten year av
erage. On the heavy clays of £he up
part part of the state preparations
have not yet been completed, and a
a large proportion of the corn and
cotton remains to be put in the
ground. This work has been going
forward with great rapidity during
the past few weeks. In the coastal
plain section the farmers are well
up with their work.
While the complaint of labor
shortage is very general, the farm
ers are going to be able to get their
work done and their crops planted.
The number of boys and women in
the fields is very noticeable:
Condition of Livestock Poor
The long, cold winter; shortage of
feed; late and poor pasture; and low
financial conditions in many sections
—are all contributing factors to the
unusually poor condition of live
stock at this time. Cattle are looking
better since pastures came out, but
are still very thin.
The amount of hay on farms is
slightly greater than the supply at
this time last year, although still be
low average. This situation is aggra
vated somewhat by the failure of the
small grain crop throughout most of
the state. A large amount of feed is
being hauled from towns.
Pastures have improved, but
grasses were late coming out and are
stil rather poor. Both clover and
Bermuda were badly winter dam
