Ill IVHOIIIIlU I Utl
In Building Dixie Highway Caused
By Threat of a Suit to be Brought
By Marion County Citizens
The time when the Dixie Highway
will be built thru Marion county is
eagerly looked forward to by many
of our citizens. At present, the road
is "up in the air." About ten miles
have been graded, at heavy expense.
It was supposed that the work of sur

But in the meantime they were served
with notice that a suit would be en entered

obtaining interest on the bond money
that has been in the banks since the

It was within the power of the com commissioners

an injunction could have been served,
but they considered it would be better
policy to wait until it could be found

they will make ho further move until
June 5, when they will have a hearing
before Judge Bullock.
The Star does not see how it will
be possible to collect any interest
from the banks, and it is of the opin
ion that delay in road building will
cost the taxpayers much more heavily
than the interest, if it could be col-
ected, would pay for.

In the last issue of the Floridian was

on figures and data obtained from practical
This standard grain crop is grown
throughout the county on all types of soil.
On the muck lands an average yield of 100
bushels per acre is actually harvested in
normal seasons. Lawton Martin, Corn Club
boy of Moss Bluff, for four successive year
made over 100 bushels of com per acre on
this type of soil. This kind of land can be
leased in almost any sized tracts.
In 1918 the1 average yield of the club boys
over the county on all types of soil was 48.3
bushels at an average cost of 32 cents per
On the better types of soil, other than
muck lands, with considerable humus con content,

profitably. Soils that naturally will not
yield over 20 bushels of corn per acre should
not be considered com soils and will not
pay a profit on f ertlizers other than manure.

matured Sept. 1st to 15th. The cost of pro production
duction production was $13.50 per acre. This field
would have no doubt warranted the use of
commercial fertilizers. Furthermore the
season of 1921 was the driest known in
many years, and the yield was badly cut.
The general practice in growing com is to
plant in wide rows, and to grow peanuts,
peas or velvet beans in the middles and
sometimes in the drill with the com. This
practice is a good one, especially when 'the
field is to be pastured.
On most farms com can be grown at a
much less cost per bushel than the market
price. It is extremely risky to plant seed
from northerly states. A few scientifically
trained farmers are doing good seed selec selection
tion selection work, and improved native grown seed
can be had.
The com weevil does great damage to
stored com throughout the winter months,
but this can be eliminated by fumigating
the corn in tight cribs, the extra cost of
which will be repaid by one season's saving.
Peanuts rank next to com in importance
as a field crop. Most of them are pastured
off as a part of the hog fattening system.
However, many car loads of the 1921 crop
were shipped out of the county.
Peanuts are frequently planted to follow
oats or some truck crop. Pine lands with
Clay subsoil are considered the best soil
types for peanuts, though with proper fer fertilization
tilization fertilization they will produce well on most soil
types that are used as farms. Acid phos phosphate,
phate, phosphate, and land plaster are to be chiefly
relied upon as commercial fertilizers. Two
to four hundred pounds per acre of acid
phosphate applied before planting will aid
materially in improving the crop. On most
soils the use of 400 to 600 pounds of land
plaster or gypsum per acre will pay. The
land plaster is scattered over the rows of
vines at about the time they begin to bloom

Recently much interest was aroused in the
large Virginia Bunch variety, and several
hundred acres will be planted to this variety
in 1922. They have had the reputation in
the past of producing too many "pops," but
for the past few years this trouble has been
overcome in an adjoining county by the use
of land plaster.
This variety is properly planted in 30-inch
rows with plants eight inches apart in the
rows. The vines are erect in habit of growth
and can be cut for hay at about maturing
time, thus making better hay than when
pulled." Virginia Bunch have sold this
season at about double the price of Florida
The very large number of hay plants, and
the ease with which they can be grown
makes every farmer independent so far as
forage is concerned. The list includes the
legumes: field peas, velvet beans, soy beans,

lespedeza; the grasses: Napier, Merker,

Soy beans are not widely grown, though

It will grow on almost any type of soil.
Since its introduction into Florida, about
25 years ago, it has spread widely over the

farmers, though its eradication in. a culti cultivated

Yields of one to two tons per acre have
been cut in Marion county, the higher
figure representing two cuttings per acre

in about 85 days.
Napier and Merker grasses are very sim

They are propagated from cuttings, these
being planted in rows and checked about five
feet each way. The original cutting sends

make large clumps. If not cut the stems

For feeding purposes these grasses are

add materially to the yield and quality.
About three-quarters of a bushel of seed per

Very little attention has been given to the
improvement of pastures in most parts of
the South. Marion county has been no ex exception
ception exception to this rule. In the past the open
ranges have been the pastures, and most of
this land is fairly well covered with wire
grass, several paspalums, some little Japan
clover and a large number of other varieties.
There have been a few remarkable pas pastures

of Florida, and some of these on lands not
naturally as well adapted to grasses as some
in Marion county. The most successful of
these are sodded with Dallis Vgrass pas pas-palum

New Zealand on the map as a dairy country.
Some very fine Dallis grass pastures have
been developed in South Georgia and Cen Central

Four of our cattle men have during this
winter seeded Dallis grass pastures; some
of these are also seeding Japan clover or
lespedeza and a few other newly introduced
Dr. N. W. Sanborn, poultry specialist' of
the Florida Agricultural College, and na
tionally known as an authority on such mat matters,
ters, matters, makes the statement that the best
kept, best systematized poultry farm in the
United States is located in Marion county.
During the year 1920 the one thousand hens
on this farm laid an average of 161 eggs
apiece. These eggs were shipped by ex express
press express to Miami. The lowest price received
was 35c. per dozen, the highest 95c. per
dozen, the average was over 50c
the winter months.
The prevailing blood in the dairy cattle,
at present, is Jersey, with Holstein and
Guernsey about even seconds. Most of the
cows are grades. v
One of the good dairy farms on which
about 35 cows are at present being milked
has reported a monthly labor cost of $100,
feed cost of $225 and all other costs $150. In
winter months the sales run as high at $1250
per month, while in summer they have been
as low as $300, when most cows are dry or
in small flow of milk. This too, was be-.
fore the days of the creamery.
This farm has Bermuda grass, carpet
grass and other native grasses in the-pastures.
They also plant pastures of cow peas,
sorghums, velvet beans, etc., which put the
harvesting up to the cows. Velvet bean meal
and com and cob meal are made of the
farm's products. Shorts, bran and cotton
seed meal are the only feeds bought.
Several car loads of dairy cows were
shipped into Marion county during the late
months of 1921 and early- months of 1922
and the demand for more is increasing.

The prices of eggs are always higher in
Florida than in other states. This is espe especially
cially especially true during the winter months. And
our climate does not interfere with high egg
yields during these high price months. A
freight train conductor a few months ago
telling of the eggs brought into and through
the state for the Cuban markets, said that
on his previous two trips his trains had in
them seven solid cars of eggs.

A few years ago pure bred hogs on Mar Marion
ion Marion county farms were rare. Today the
conditions are reversed and it is hard to find
a farmer raising hogs as a money crop who
does hot keep at least a pure bred male.
Poland Chinas, Duroc Jerseys, Hampshires
and Berkshires predominate in the order
named. The Boys Pig Cbob members helped
t make this change to pure bred stock.
