Taxes More Than Double.
While in conversation with Mr.
Luther Brunson Monday he spoke
of the steady advance in the state
and ?ounty taxes. Some time ago
among some old papers he came
across a tax receipt which was is
sued to his late father, the Rev. D.
r?. Brimson, in 1870. At that time
he paid tax on 840 acres of land,
the amount beiug $27.75. Mr. Lu
ther Brunson now owns 239 acres
of the same tract and he pays
?27.35 cents in taxes. This amount
also includes his tax on personal
property. Judging from the increase
in the levy this year, the worst is
yet to conic Those of us who are
living in 1930 had better deed our
land to the state and rent it each
year, letting the state pay its own

I Seven ye rs ago the 20 acres im
I mediately ? .round , oar home was in
j about as 't?.d condition as possible,
j It was fuii of washes and gullies,
and the best portions would not
make over 10 bushels of corn to the
acre. A portion was considered so
hopeless that it had been given
over to pasturage. This was a
'benefit, inasmuch as/the turf of
wild grasses partly checked erosion.
All our land was so poor that we
began to build up these 20 acres
Our method has been simple. We
began by filling washes with refuse
scattered about the farm-corn
stalks, cobs, leaves from the wood
lots, etc. Our idea was to utilize
materials on hand so as to prevent
waste, and to do the worK in spare
time. Horse and cow stalls were
heavily bedded with coarse straw,
leaves, or uneaten hay, and the ma
nure was taken out often. It was
always carried at once to some part
of the 20 acres. We made an effort
to dress the worst parts of the field
first, leaving the manure spread out
on level portions, bat turning it un
der as soon as we could get to it
wheu it was applied to slopes. Of
course, this manure spreading was in
additionjto what we grew on the
Our main dependence was upon
rye and cowpeas. Fortunately they
will make some growth on poor
land. We grazed the rye and turned
it under in spring, then later plant
ed peas. We only plowed the peas
under in the worst spots because we
needed the hay. But got most of it
back in manure. Running cows
and hugs on the rye added to the

In addition to fertilizing we have
plowed deeper and deeper. Not yet
as deep as we ought, but for the last
two years we have plowed with a.
small plow as deep as three stout
mules could pull it. That was
pretty well into the subsoil. Of
course, there was nothing original
in our methods; we just kept ever
lastingly at it, and we would not
let anything go to waste. Chicken;
manure, toilet waste, ashes, every
thing was put back on the ground.
The ashes, by being spread fresh,,
have added a good bit of lime to
the soil in seven years.
