Modern Farm ?\
Notes of Inter?
Fruit Grower ?
Credit System Bad.
, I have been watching country life
In che South for many years and have
c?me to the conclusion that the "ad
vance system" is Just as great a mis
take on the part of the merchant as lt
1B on the part of the farmer, for the
First, the merchant takes great
risks, which, of course, he tries to
cover by increased charges. But even
though these charges are Increased,
the staples of life are not such arti
cles as a high percentage of profit will
adhere to, and the merchant is prac
tically trading gold for a promise to
pay. It the crop fails, he is obliged
to carry and carry and carry, and
may ultimately, as in thousands of
cases, be obliged to take a farm, for
which he has no use.
Under a cash system there will be
a great reduction in the sales .of some
staple foods, such as bacon, .potatoes,
beans, lard,'vegetables, canned goods,
hay, corn, etc., all articles that carry
low profits. The farmer, however,
will buy with his surplus more dry
goods, clothing, shoes, furniture, etc.,
for his family, better teams, farm
implements, wagons, buggies, etc., on
which there is a much greater profit
for the merchant than on staple arti
cles of food. The merchant can turn
his money in thirty days, Instead of
a year. Ten per cent, clear profit
turned monthly ls better than 120
per cent, gain received annually.
Again, there ls something about
raising cotton, tobacco or any other
crop, to pay a debt, that saps the vi
tality of the farmer and affects the
quality of his tillage. It really low
ers the grade of farming.
If the merchants will join with us
In urging the farmers to raise all
their food.supplies and try to produce
by better tillage double the crop per
acre they now produce, the result as
it affects the merchant will be that
all business will soon be on a cash
basis and the volume will be three or
four times as large from the farmers
alone. The advent of more money
will bring - diversified Industries
among the farmers, and eventually
will attract manufacturers to the
If there are idle farms in the coun
try, Instead of calling meetings for
the purpose of raising funds to secure
Immigration, call meetings to encour
age the farmers who know the coun
try and are loyal to lt, to universally
adopt the following plan: First, pn>
vide their own food supplies from the
farm. Second, double the average
product on every acre under cultiva
tion and let each worker on the farm,
by the use of better teams and tools,
till three times as many acres as at
present, not fn the one crop but in a
variety of diversified aird profitable
crops.^ This would cause an imme
diate ? demand for more land and
wouldv provide the money to pay for
lt. This makes every man on the
farm more than six times the indus
trial: power he now is and" gives him
a love of the/ farm. This is better
than to leave him in discouragement
and secure Immigrants to come and
buy him out.
It appears to me, therefore, that
the farmer will immeasurably gain
when he produces what he has hith
erto bought in the way of living. He
is not compelled to sell his crop Im
mediately upon the harvest. When
he does sell he trades for cash. The
greater amount of money he has is
very helpful to the family, but the
stimulus to his self respect is perhaps
the most import?nt item to be consid
ered. The merchant will ba equally
benefited by the greater volume of
business and by the quick return of

Over-enthusiastic supporters of the
various movements for the control
of the price of cotton tob often lose
sight of the fact that a product "well
bought is half sold."
On one occasion we heard the
leader of a great cotton growers'
movement seriously declare that we
knew enough*about making cotton
and that all the South needed now
was to get the worth of. her great
staple product We should not-miss
any opportunity to strengthen and
'improve our marketing, but it 1B the
'height of absurdity to neglect the
''pro?uctlon Bide. The man who makei
his cotton for six cents a pound, nc
matter how high the selling price
has Just four cents a pound greatei
profit than the man who makes it a
a cost of ten cents. Likewise th?
man who makes a bale to the acn
will make a greater profit than thi
man who makes but half a bale. I
is, therefore, nonsense, if not some
thing worse, for any nan rto cJ?in
