charge he held for eighteen years.

j Mountain, where he has been for
| the past seven years.

Has Unusual Record in Cot
j Making 145 bales of cotton on 145
! acres of land this year is the record
'of B. E. Gold of Cliffside. In addition
!to this, Mr. Gold produced all the
grain and hay necessary to feed all
work stock on the farm. "This type
of farming will not bankrupt farm
ers even with present prices," stat
ed county agent F. E. Patton. -
! Mr. Gold, like all good farmers,
is continually studying his farm prob
lems. This year to aid in this and to
give the people of Cliffside communi
j ty a chance to study proper fertiliza
tion of cotton, Mr. Patton arranged
with Mr. Gold to conduct a five-acre
demonstration. This was located 1
mile from Cliffside on the right of
Highway No. 207 to Forest City.
•The main demonstration of five acres
; was fertilized with GOO pounds oi
acid phosphate, 50 pounds of mu
riate of potash and 100 pounds of
Chilean Nitrate of Soda at planting
time and 'side-dressed with 200
pounds of Chilean Nitrate at chop
ping- time. The yield was 1433 pounds
of seed cotton per acre. A one-half
acre plot through the center of this
field was fertilized with 600 pounds
of acid phosphate and 50 pounds
of muriate of potash at planting
time. No nitrate was used on this
plot. The yield was 527 pounds T>n
the half-acre or 1055 pounds of seed
cotton per acre. The Chilean Nitrate
of Soda gave an increased yield of
378 pounds of seed cotton per acre.
Farmers who are considering- their
cotton acreage for 1931 shoull
study this work of Mr. Gold rather
closely. He has demonstrated that
by putting- his cotton on the best
cotton land, using good seed and fer
tilizing- properly, he can produce
cotton at a profit under adverse
price and weather conditions. When
he coupled this with the production
of the food and feed crops needed, j
he insured himself against the loss-j
es that come to those who use pooi* j
seed on poor land, poorly fertilized, j
and who do not grow their own!
