Feeds The Meal to Stock.
On seeing Mr. David Strother's
wagon heavily loaded with cotton
seed meal last week, the writer ask

stock feed or fertilizing purposes.
He replied that instead of putting
meal in the ground he feeds it to
stock and fertilizes with the manure

and' gets his money back for the
meal, .leaving the manure a clear
profit. Other farmers should do

Mr. S. N. Timmerman, of Elm
wood, belongs to the minority of
Edgetield county farmers who raise
their corn, meal, flour, bacon, hams,
lard, potatoes, peas, hay, etc., on
the farm. While he has .been a
regular wheat grower, Mr. Tin mer
man, along with hundreds of others,
is going to give especial attention to
his grain this year. He remarked
to the writer Saturday that he could
not understand why it is that when
farmers make a failure in thtir cot
ton crop they double their resolu
tions, prepare the la.'d better and
fertilize heavier the n xt yearjwhere
as if they sow wheat at? fail; they
giye up making any further, effort,
and quit. Would that farmers had
half the perseverance in growing
household necessities that they have
in growing cotton ! If you failed in
wheat last year, or the last time
you planted it, don't give up but
try again. Suppose you fail this
time, the loss will really be very
small. The land can be planted in
corn next May or June, in ample
time to make a fine yield. Is this
not reasonable argument?
