The Longtown Farmers Meet
mg Most SuccessfuL
One of the most successful of
all the meetings held in the
county was the one held Tuesday
night of this week at the Long
town school house. Farmers of
both races for miles around came
in great numbers to hear the
speakers on the matter of farm
preparedness. The school build
ing was taxed to its capacity!and
then there was not room enough
for all to find seats and many
remained outside the doors. The
speakers of the evening were
Rev. J. J. Montgomery, Thos. M.
Seawell and R. S. Rutland. Each
of these speakers make a most
impressive presentation of the
conditions before us and of the
plans and relief as mapped out
by the county committee. There
was much evidence on the part
of the-audience that the sugges
tions of the county ~committee
would be carried into effect. Two
other meetings will be held in
this section next Sunday for the
colored farmers. One at White
Oak church at twelve o'clock
and the other at Olivet at three
o'clock. Before the meeting
adjourned a committee consistinx
of Messrs, R. C. Reeves, W. E.
Wilds and J. C. Stewart was ap
pointed to co-operate with the
people of the community in an
effort to see that the suggestion
of the county committee is car

WORTH SAVING, ISN'T IT?
When feed your work stock a ration of COTTON\
SEED MEAL with corn. Dr. Tait Butler says
that if you are feeding your mule 14 lbs. of corn
per day, you can take out four pounds and put in
two pounds of cotton seed meal and get better
Four pounds of corn is worth 12 cents today. Two
pounds of cotton seed meal is worth four cents---a saving
of 8 cents per day on each animal fed. In 365 days you
would save $29.20, if you put into practice the advice of
Dr. Butler, who is conceded to be the highest author'ity on
feeds and feeding. It is as necessary to SAVE as it is to
PRODUCE, and "Saving" and "Producing" are the
watchwords of today.
In The Progressive Farmer, of March 24, 1917, -Dr...Butler.
recommends the following ration for work stock when cotton seed
meal is used.
(1) 1 part cotton seed meal by weight to five parts of corn.
(2) 1 part cotton seed meal to 4 parts corn, 4 parts oats.
(3) 1 part cotton seed meal to 10 parts oats.
"To be fed with usual quantities of grass hay, corn, fodder."
* These are war times. Corn is human food.
BETTER SAVE IT.
A pint to a quart of cotton seed meal fed daily will
produce good results.
