uthe?e two witueeses said what 1

does not go lower, the people will
have the means with which tc
supply their needs.

1 Model Farm.
The writer enjoyed the privi
lege a few days ago of visiting the
homo of Mr. and Mrs. W. T. Wal
ton , than which there is no more
delightful place in the county to
visit. We walked with Mr. Walton
Dver his fertile fields and viewed
bis magnificent crops.-His five
acre field of corn about which
much bas been said is a remark
able sight. It was planted, ferti
lized and cultivated after the Wil
liamson method and will make
seventy-five bushels per acre.
Alongside this fine corn is a field
of cotton equally as fiue. The field
contains sixteen acres ard Mr.
Walton has already ginued fifteen
bales from it, and will get ten or
twelve more. He expected to get
thirty bales from the sixteen acres
but, like everybody's cotton, it
was cut short by the drought. Mr.
Walton not only knows how to
have the soil fertilized and tilled
to tho best possible advantage but
be is a good manager also. Nearly
everything that is consumed on
the farm is produced at home.
Mr. Walton says he never bought
but two sacks of corn in his life
and that , he sold fodder to get
the money with which to buy it.
Very few farmers in the county
can show such a record.
I wish to inform my friends
that I am in the cotton Beed mar

Sammy Was Sneaking Over
The Back Fence When a

"Where have you been all day?" she demanded. "Your
mother has been worrying herself sick about you." "Don't'
mind her," says Sammy. "H:r worrying is about over;
mine's just bsginnin'."
Sammy is like some of the fellows who devote the tmall
half of their time putting out apologies for the real thing
aud the big half in dodging the kicks from their customers.
About the time they ought to be enjoying a good reputation
and be laying by a hard-earned dollar, their worry has just
begun. If you're using the "BABCOCK" jobs, the worrying
can belong to thu other fellow.
