On an acre, of cotton 1 1-16 staple, he obtained a yield of 1.276 lbe. of lint and 2,394 of seed. The result was a net gain of $165.38 on the acre. On his cotton, Mr. Johns used 400 lba. of a 4-10-4 fertilizer at planting and side-dressed with 100 lbs. of American nitrate of soda. With the same application on an acre of corn, he made 159 bu. of Hastings Prolific at a net gain of $140.65. Both demonstrations were con- dusted under the supervision of the American Cotton Association and Better Farming Campaign. Col. Harvle Jordan, Managing Director of the Association said that all of the Association's results last sea- son prove the value of intensive culture. "There are two things I'm sure of," eel. Jordan remarked, "And they are that we Southerners have to adopt intensive culture in the field and have to support our home industries. When I look at a result like this, made with our own Southern nitrate of soda, I think we have a combination the whole world can't bea'~." .
