23,000 acres, and docs not mako a halo of

Nows says he is an all-round farmer,
who farms all tho timo, and adds: "To
work Irs farms, which average from (?00|
to 3.000 acres, requires 140 employ?es.
700 horses, moro than 100 wagons and
many ploughs, harrows, cultivators, oto.
Half of his land goos under tho plough
yeai ly. About 2,(XX) acres aro sown in
wheat, and tho rest is planted in corn.
Other land is laid down in clovor, timo
thy and bluo grass pastures. Kvory year
ho buys and fattens from 8,000 to 10,000
head of cattle. Ho kcops 12,000 hoad of
hogs at all timos, and solis about $80,000
worth yearly." If it is praoticnblo to
farm profitably on this scale, without
raising any cotton, it should bo practica
