Some Plans by Which a Farm Can Sac

We ^feol that the fermera aro no
paying enough alten ti ni to buviug
land and building home?? for them
selves and families. About the first
duty of every farmer should be to
have a home of his own. For to
have a home means that you are ablo
to protect your famiiy. Ir, means
that your word stands for some-*- ,
thing in the community where-.vou '
live> . It means that peop'e ? a n
corn? to. you, iqstead of yosu^atways

better position to serve, yourself ?nd
family, your country and your God.
We fully understand that it ia not
an easy thing in these days of, low
prices of cotton and other farm pro
ducts, to save moneyjon the farm^
The family must eat and wear.
Tho doctor must "09 paid. The
preacher and teacher must havo
their pay. lt's hard. I t takes
good heads, good hands and good
hearts to euoceed. It takes a good
head to plan right. Ir, takeB good
hands to carry out good plans. 1^
takes an honest heart to stay away
from the courts and jails. Our peo
ple lose thousands of dollars every
year going to courta. The mau who
works hard every day, stays at home
day and night as he should, is sel
dom asked to attend court. This
kind of farmer can buy land.
Now lot each farmer without a
home, set his pygs^to buy one. We
will name two common pegs,. We
will also tell you how you may drive
them down. We would name the
first peg GOOD TRA.DE.
Find a healthful place for your'
future hom?. Buy land where, yoa
can build your houso ou a hill, or a
place where water rims off freely,
the'phalu of titles from the Indians
on down should be unbroken.;- Get
a goodjawyer to look . this matter
i up. Bny a good (fertile) farm, if
; possible. However,.if you are a- good
! farmer ye? may bo able to make a
good (fertile) farm out cf a poor

fifty aores. unless yon haue some
money -with which to make your?
