THE AGRICULTURAL CONTESTS.
Invitation Issued for AU to Take a,
Part in Making Things Interesting.
Brother Farmers, Ladles, Girls
and Boys: Let us all join the contest
and see who can do the most to build
up our county. We have dimed from j
only a few bushels to over a hun
dred per acre. If we raise our corn
we can make our own meat; if we j
raise our wheat we can make our
Hour, and raise plenty of oats to !
mix with the corn to feed on, and ic ?
will be better for the Btock, for they
have indigestion the same as man
does. When we raise these necessi
ties of life we will have our cribs,
smokehouses and garners at home
Instead of in the WeBt, and then we
will quit paying freight one way and
postage the other.
Why can we not forge to the front
with our beautiful mountain scenery,
pure air and sparkling rivulets,
backed up by our noble women, rosy
cheeked girls and a soil unsurpassed
by any? When people In other parts
of the State and in other States that
want to buy land and see what a
great yield our lands make in wheat,
oats and corn, they will come here
and purchase our lands. This will
be the means of bringing good peo
ple into our midst to help us build
up our churches, schools and govern
ment. T. Y. Chalmers,
