To Our Farms
Georgia Boy's Big Idea Sets
Farmers In Many States
To Talking-Leading Men
And Firms Get Behind It
In This County.
That the day of small beginnings
and ultimate greatness of accomplish
ment is not over is certainly proven
to be a fact by the case of John B.
Jobson, who, in the opinion of Atlan
ta capitalists, practical farmers and
government agricultural experts, has
given to the South and to the coun
try one of the greatest inventions of
the decade-one which, in the prac
tical words of Loring Brown, a lead
ing farmer and writer of Georgia, is
"now sweeping over the South, and
is going to give us a crop increase of
at least a fourth."
Mr. Jobson has invented a plow
that's all. Hfe hasn't wrought out a
new rapid-fire man-killer or fashioned
a model sword; but he has, it is
thought, produced an idea that will
make available, without a penny of
extra cost, thousands of tons of nat
ural fertilizers that have lain dor
mant right under the feet Of the
farmers of the country, but which have
been so completely locked up in the
soil that they have heretofore been
of no profit whatever.
The Jobson System of soil culti
vation and this remarkable plow will,
it ls claimed, open up new possibili
ties In soil tillage that have hereto
fore been impracticable and entirely
beyond the reach of the backbone of
this country-the "one-hoss farmer."
With its simplicity and practical
adaptability to the one, two or three
-horse stock; its easy adjustment to
clay, loamy, hard or shallow land;
its peculiar handling of the soil so
that it can be worked several days
earlier than the ordinary plow in
wet land, and its wonderful digging
and turning power which gives lt
more efficiency per horse-power-all
of these combine to make lt some
thing 'which has set the farmers of
this and adjoining states to talking
deep plowing as they have never
talked it before.
That Mr. Jobson's plow comes high
ly recommended is readily seen In
the hearty indorsements of such men
as F. J. Merriam, editor of The South
ern Ruralist; W. A. Parker, vice presi
dent and general manager of Beck &
Gregg, one of the biggest hardware
firms in the south; W. L. Hunnicutt,
editor of The Southern Cultivator;
Hon. Jas. D. Price, Commissioner of
agriculture; Dr. J. R. Horn, of Lu
verne, Ala,; R. C. Carlisle, U. S. Agri
culture expert; E. G. Willingham, Sr.,
of Atlanta, and many others from all
sections of the country.
That this plow and the Jobson
Common Sense Methods have strong
.backing in this county can not be
denied when we consider the names
of the progressive dealers who are
helping to introduce the plow and
secure for our people the crop in
crease that will necessarily follow.
These firms, who are now giving
out copies of the Jobson paper, "Com
mon Sense Farming," are as follows:
W. L. Dunovant, Edgefield; V.
E. Edwards ct Bros., Johnston;
Trenton Fertilizer Co., Trenton;
Middleton cfc Rich, Meriwether; J.
W. Blacknell cfc Son, Plum Branch;
T. Garrett Talbert, Parksville.
For the county of Spartanburp-,
alone, there are actually 21 Jobson
agencies, and it is understood that
there are many other firms in Edtre
fielcl county who have applied, and
will no doubt be enrolled.
