Letter From Rev. G. W. ?Bus
se? to One of His Church
jv Greenwood, S. C.
Nov. 2'9, 1921
r Dear Brother Johnnie:
I am feeling a little better for the
last few days abd hope to be well
enough to be at the Grove next Sun
day, but my health is sb treacherous
I feel constrained to write you this
letter for fear I may fail to get there.
If I fail to get there, I want you to
take chaTge of the service and con
duct'it. .Read this letter and conduct
it as you feel best. '
' As next Sunday isvto be "my last
day as pastor, I would like toy?xpress
myself to all the church my deep felt
gratitude to them and to . God for
their,great and continued kindness to
me during these many years, but re
words fall lifeless to the ground and
I fail to .be able to convey to
them what I feel ? wish to.
Without exception the entire mem
bership has been kind and thoughtful
. of me all these years, bearing with
. my infirmities and weaknesses, ^ all
of which I feel unworthy. More and
more as I get nearer home I realize
my weakness and unworthiness, and
my entire dependence'upon God. By
His grace I have come this far and
am willing to trust that grace to the
end. And I feel like doing as Paul,
in the closing chapters of one of his
letters to one of Iiis churches. He en
' deavored to call the name of , each
. of^ his brethren and commend and en
courage them in their church work.
So feel I as I wind up my work with
I have enjoyed my efforts to
preach the Gospel these 50-years,
but have never been able to do it as
well as I "have desired. No sermon of
mine has been what I wished it'to
be,-but I trust that God has blessed
my work to some extent Now I am
called on to sheathe my sword and
lay down my arms, but I have no
complaint to make, for I feel that it
is God's will and Providence and it is
all right I only hope to be able to
yield and uncomplainingly close my
life in that spirit and way which will
be most to this Saviour. I find that
there is a sweet, Sustaining power in
the religion of our Lord Jesus. I find
the promises of my iLord more and
more sweet and sustaining as I draw
nearer and nearer the borderland.
I would urge each brother and sis
ter to hold fast their profession and
press on to the end, leaning heavily '
upon that promise that "As thy days
so shall thy strength be."
In conclusion let me urge you to
Tally around your incoming pastor,
Brother .Seago, hold up his hands,
cheer him in his work as you have
done your humble servant.
May the Lord be with you, guide
and bless you is my humble prayer in

The Self-Supporting Farm.
Under'boll weevil conditions it is
considered extremely important for
e?ch farmer to raise as nearly all of
the staple food and feed crops as is
possible to supply all needs of the.
landlord, the tenants, and the live
stock. , -
These things can be grown at
home much more cheaply than ?they
can b? purchased from other sec
tions,; and producing them should not
interfere with the production of sta
ple cash crops but should round out
a well balanced cropping system .
0*n any farm on which a good ro
tation is followed for the purpose of
building up the fertility of the land
and maintaining a system of diversi
fied agriculture, all^of these crops
can be grown economically and to
good advantage. ^

One cow should be bred* to freshen
in the spring and the other in the
fall and in this way about two gal
lons of milk per day may be pro
duced if proper care and feed are
All feeds for the family cows
should be home grown.
It is important to prepare one to
two acres of permanent pastures-for
each cow in order to "produce the
dairy products for the home more
The milk cows should be pastured
on the cultivated fields, in the fall
when possible an j" on oats and rye ip.
the winter and early spring.
The milk'cows, should be bred only
to purebred bulls of a dairy .breed.
The cheapest means of insuring the
service of a good bull for a few cows
is to organize a dairy bull association
The keeping of a flock of laying
hens on the farm is an important
part of good general farm manage
ment. On every farm there should be
at least. 30 to 40 laying hens
It is more advisable to k?ep pul
lets and yearlings than birds over
For general farm conditions, ?he

Purebred poultry stock produces
a greater number of eggs, a more
uniform product, makes possible the
selling of eggs for hatching, and
creates a greater interest in poultry.
It will take four hogs averaging
150 pounds each to supply pork for '
the" average family of five.'

to produce a 150>pound pig. '
If buttermilk, soy b?an ^pasture,
rape pasture, or corn and.velvet bean
pasture is available, it will not be
necessary to buy tankage.
\ A splendid way to fatten hogs is
to turn them on corn and velvet I
beans and let the hogs do the har
It has been thoroughly demonstrat
ed that good pastures will-save aoout
two-fifths of the grain ration.
. One or two acres of rape or rye
for winter pasture and access to Ber
muda pasture for summer, will pro
duce sufficient grazing for a brood
sow. and her litter.
It is important to use only pure
bred'boars; as this is the most eco
nomical way of improving the herd.
The surplus feed crops resultVn]
from diversified farming may be
sold through the dairy cow profitably
if a convenient ' market is available.
A .silo is recommended for herds j
of ten or more cows. Corn and sor-1
ghum are the best crops for ensilage.
Balanced rations for milk produc
tion should be made from home
grown feeds; corn, velvet beans, oats j
cottonseed meal, peavine hay, alfalfa j
hay, soybean hay, silage. ?
