Overcoming tho "Fodder Disease."
This is a line year to bogia to con
quer the "fodder disease." There is,
or there should be, more land than
usual to uso tor hay crops, and so
long as there is land for growing
hay, and mowers to cut it with, wo
.should forgot that there is such a
thing as toiling In a fodder held.
"Give me a mowing machine ono
hour and 1 can make more good feed
than I could make all summer pull-,
ing fodder," says Winters. "I never
pull any fodder," says S. W. Foster,
of Newry, "tor I consider lt too ex
pensive a method of making feed."
Others who know' something about
farming say the same thing.
Plant now larger acreagos of cow
peas and sorghum, for it is hard to
boat this combination on medium
soil. Then there is Sudan grass,
which will give two or three good
cuttings. Then for good solis a fine
feed can be grown of soy beans in
rows, cultivated a few times and
mown for hay. Then if you have some
good fields of vetcli and oats, such
as Mr. Foster and Mr. Bnuknlght
have, you will have less need for
working hard In a fodder field and
cutting your corn yield at tho same
time you are pulling fodder.
"Grow more hay" should become
Gie motto of tho real farmer.
Have Cotton Cruded.
Tho official government cotton
grader stationed at westminster lias
graded around throe thousand hales,
most of it being for farmers In tho
section around Westminster, li'he
grading work of Mr. Anderson has
been very satisfactory, and some ex
cellent results have been shown.
In several instances about twenty
five bales or more have been grouped
together to bo offered for salo in lots
with excellent results. There is only
ono thing more satisfactory than
knowing tho actual grade and grade
valuo of your cotton, and that ls
gotting the price for it, and this has
boen accomplished in Westminster
a number of times. In fact, those
who have watched the markots closo
ly in tho Georgia towns and towns
of Oconeo say that a number of
times tho Westminster market has
hoon ahead of tho Georgia markets,
or up with thom.
A much larger number of farmers
from othor paris of the county
should avail themselves of tho op

portunity of having their cotton

Good Seed for Oconeo.
Good seed are hoing, grown and
selected on the farms of W. R. Earle,
of the Earle's Grove section, and W.
K. Marett, of Westminster, ihy a
number of careful selections and ear
to-row tests carried on under the
supervision of the extension service
breeding expert, Mr. Carberry.
W. It. Earle is putting In fifty ear
to-row tests of the Douthit and Bald
win varieties of corn, and is using
25 of the 50 selections of "Earle's
Special" long staple cotton seed,
which was made with the expert
plant breeder last fall. This will
insure continuous improvement in
the variety which Mr. Earle is
breeding.
Mr. Marett is putting In .'{0 plant
to-row tests on Cleveland Big Boll
and 48 ear-to-row tests on Douthit
corn.
These progressive plant breeders
will soon he in position to offer some
choice seed to the farmers of Oconeo.

THE CUPBOARD.
A brownie was allowing the boy and
girl adventurers some of the interest
ing things about the Hospitality ho
tel where lived Sir Hearty Cordiality.
The boy and girl were Oil their way
to the House of Secrete where they
were going to find out that tho great
est secret In the world was that of
Knowing how to play fair and to be
real pals, each with one another, sud
that all other secrets led to that one.
"We have keys to the doors," said
tue brownie, "but we don't like to uso
them. We have them beeauso you
know folks mustn't abuse this fine
Hospitality hotel. We want to show
hospitality ami we want to bo liked
In return. But wo don't want to be
made use of-and not cared for at
ali l
"Rut you must use the key to open
this cupboard. Every one who wants
to see within the cupboard must use
lt. It opens once and that is usually
enough for those who want something
that ls within."
"It sounds very mysterious," said
the girl.
"Open the door," said the brownie.
"Turn this key."
The girl put the key In the lock. It
was a very large key. She thought
the door would slick and that the lock
wouldn't work at once, but to hor sur
prise it opened So suddenly and .so
easily thnt she was almost frightened.
"Rut there is nothing inside," said
the boy. There were shelves and
"Ute th? Kay."
shelves und shelver, and there were
hooks and hooks and hooks.
"If you look a little further along,
at tlie end of th* top shelf, which you
can reach if you stand on your tip
toes, you will see some photographs,
You must take one."
The boy and the girl looked as the
brownie directed when all at once the
shelves began to fall and the hooks
began to go about, catching' the girl's
hair and giving it little pulls and
catching the boy's ear and giving lt
little twigs.
"This ls awful," shouted the boy.
"Oh, I can't get out. The door ls
closed and we're in the cupboard."
Rut no sooner had be said that than
tlie door opened again, the shelves all
appeared as shelves should appear,
.ven and quiet and orderly and the
hooks were quiet and in their places.
Master .Thoughtfulness lind now
Joined them. "Were the hooks and
shelves trying to teach you a lesson?
Well, we couldn't stand for thnt."
"What did they behave like that
for?" asked the girl, still a little
frightened.
"Don't be frightened," said the
brownie, "for I promise nothing like
this will happen again. I couldn't
help lt, I really couldn't. If you had
been only guests it would have been
different, but as you're adventurers
and are on your way to the House of
Secrets you can't miss things by the
way.
"The shelves and the hooks fall
upon creatures and pull at their hair
and their ears when they get the
cbnnce both here and through their
workers through the world to make
folks feel little guilty twinges whon
they remember that there was n time
that theg went off by themselves to
eat some cake or had a larger piece
of pie than some one else nt the table
when they were doing the cutting.
They do that so that creatures will
keep away from doing any of these
things. They won't go around If
they're not needed. They're not so
fond of work as all that.
"They merely love tho Hospitality
hotel people so much thnt they try to
punish inhospitality mid anyone who
doesn't like the word 'Share!'
"Rut get your photographs! .lt's
bed* time." The boy end the girl
readied to the top shelf and found n
lot of photographs. They were very
small. And yet they could tell iquite
plainly when they looked nt the two
they had taken that they were of Slr
Hearty Cordiality standing outside the
Hospitality hotel.
"If you will sleep tonight wh the
photographs close to your hearts the
likeness of Slr Hearty Cordiality will
never be forgotten by you. That ls
yet one more secret you're learning
tonight."
Ever Steady-'? Capacity.
It was reported that the Hver

the members bad outgrown the Sunday

reason was that the class Ideal had
developed beyond the capacity of the
