The Pra-Xiit rts a Mo ley Crop.
A few davs since little War
ren, a son oi our live aui ener
getic townsman, W. A. Johnson,
dug the p a-nuts from a small
patch of about one -sixteenth of
an acre .vmcii in) piani.ea last
May. He was surprised to find
tint he h-id about ten bushels
of good, souudpeas, which were
worth 75 cents per bushel. ,He
planted two quarts and used no
manure. Th's is worth think
ing about, for it means that the
pea-nut will head cotton as a
money crop. An acre of land
that will not make a bale of cot
ton will produce f;om G5 to 100
bushels of pea-nuts. These
pea-nuts when bought by the
merchants here to sell cost about
1.10 per bushel. But suppo e
we estimate the average yield at
75 busho's per acre and the aver
age price at only 75 cents pet
bushel, and we have 55.25
Thi3 i3 not all you make. Thf
tops of the pea make excellent
forage, which will average more
thau a ton to tho acre. In addi
tion, the peas left in the g.onnd
will fatten from two to th-ee'
hogs. In fact these last two
items will about pay for the
raising of the peas, making the
value of the pea crop a net prof
it. Has any fanner ever made
that much on cotton ? No. Has
any olo ever made half of it?
Do our farmers average a fifth
of it? No. Do thsy average a
tenth? W9 doubt it, for many
are thrown in debt by the cot
ton crop. In short cotton, as a
money crop, is a failure. Then
what shall it he? If we don't
know, let us experiment. We
can find a cash market for the
pea as well as for the cotton.
For the benefit of such as may
wish to try it, we will publish
an article soon on the best meth
ods of cultivating the crop.
