Put it to any
Power Task
While the Fordson Tractor has power
in plenty to drag plows and harrows
through tho heaviest soil, it is light
enough, small enough and so easily
controlled that it can handily be put to
many tasks about the farm, that will
save you time, money and work.
In fact the Fordson will do every power
job, both draw-bar and belt, more quick
ly and at less cost than it can be done
with any other form of power. So every
month the whole year 'round the always
dependable Fordson will prove itself a
paying investment, because of its capa
bilities, its economy and efficiency.
We will gladly explain and demonstrate
to you the many F ordson money-mak
ing, time-saving features. Call, write
or phone.

Lust Call for Cover Crops.
For several days following the
rains the season has been good for
sowing vetch nnd rye, votch and
oats and crimson clover. A large
number are growing these crops the
coining season, according to a local
seedsman, who states that be has
had to order another ton of vetch
seed to supply the demand.
Be certain that soil from a (leid
which has grown tho legume you
desire is used with the seed to inoc
ulate. Make the seed sticky with
syrup-water mixture, and mix in tho
dry soil. Keep away from direct ex
posure to the sun to avoid killing
the bacteria. Many failures cann;
last year through improper Inocula
tion. Strive for successful inocula
tion and there will probably be a
successful crop of vetch or clover.
Oconee's hare hills should bo cov
ered this winter with green crops,
so that the boll weevil must hunt
other quarters which aro dry.
Holl Weevils Plentiful.
That the boll weevil has moved
with his family into Oconee has been
fully determined during the past two
weeks hy inspections made in a num
ber of cotton fields over the county.
Not only are many live weevils found,
lou many small, medium and /une
large bolls were found punctured,
and the young stages hatching out
in practically every field examined.
As many as two weevils to tho boll
were found near the foot of Pc Li'
Mountain on S. J. Isbell's pHuce.
(Punctured Ibolls containing young
weevils were found.
Going to the other end of the
county, at J. ll. Shirley's place near
Townvllle, Mr. Shirley showed in a
field of late cotton that there wore
as high as 30 punctures (partly feed
ing punctures) per boll, the punc
tured bolls all rotting. Mr. Shirley
states that this field was to demon
strate that the late planting meant
certain failure.
All of this means that Oconeo
farmers in the future who plant cot
ton do so at more risk than ever be
fore; that cotton grown on a smaller
scale must be given the careful at
tention that has proven of advant
age in other boll weevil sections, such
as fall destruction of stalks and
cleaning up, early planting of early
varieties, etc.
It further Indicates that as cotton
is not so safe in the future, that all
nome supplies must he produced
that can possibly be grown; that soil
building must help lejsen the tre
mendous fertilizer dobts, and that
yields may bo increased per acre.
And in addition, certain other
money crops must be developed to
help provide cash in addition to cot
ton. This means more apple orchards
and more livestock and hogs, with
an abundance of feed for them; more
sweet potato storage houses to help
market the potato crop to advan
tage. In order to market successfully
co-operaitlve car-lot shipping must
come to carry the producta to t^ie
right-markets, where there is a de
mand.
This cannot be done in a day, a
week or a year, but is IS BOUND
TO CO.MK, and with it will come a
prosperity the Oconee farmer has
never known before. Delaying too
long will be dangerous.
Fino Bull Bought.
The Oconee Jersey Bull Associa
Hon received last week from one of
the foremost Jersey farms in Vir
giiiia a bull of the most excellen
breeding, costing a little over $200
tlollvered. This bull was Prim'
Doublo Finance, an 1 S-months-old
Einimal, sired by Double Finance, a
famous bull, having won first place
at tho National Dairy Show of Ohio
over fourteen entries, and the sir
of Double Finance's Snowdrop, the
junior champion of the Southeaster
Fair in Atlanta last year. On the
dam's side there is an official recor
of 10,010 pounds of milk and 71
pounds of butter,
Good records go back several gen
era lions to Oxford Lad, whoso daugh
tor won the certificate of merit foi
the highest but.ter-fat test on the
Isle of Jersey, from whence some of
the ancestors came. One of the an
costors sold for $4,500 and another
for $3,500 In .Inno of this year.
An association can buy better bull
than any individual al the least cost
per member. The annual show will
bo held in Walhalla, probably on
\'ov. 16th.
Over tho Farms.
W. B. T. Looney, of the Fairfield
?ioetion, lias a wonderful crop of vel
vet beans, the Osceola variety, grow
with corn and running all over it in
great profusion. Tho large beans
liang in great clusters, there seem
ing to be several pounds to th
?talk. Mr. Looney states that thrt
it tho bunches weighed two pounds
Tho corn shows up well also. The
only fertilizer applied was stable
manure in tho drill. Tho soil seemed
Lo bo of only medium fertility.
Blakely King, of Oak way, has coi
mrvosted in shocks along tho road
near Oakway, and In the mlddh
crows a fine exhibition of the bunch

Stop Savers.
While many devices In other
groups also save steps, there are a
few pieces of equipment which may
he called distinctly stop-savers. Chief
among these i# tho kitchen cabinet,
which combines a pantry, table and
shelf space into ono article of fur
niture. No one piece of kitchen
equipment does more to co-ordinate
utensils and working processes than
tho manufactured kitchen cabtnot.
Tho newest models have flour and
sugar bins, cereal and spice con
tainers, rack shelf space and adjust
able moulding boards. When used
with a stool, such a cabinet savos
endless stops 'by grouping within
arm's length of the worker both sup
plies, utensils and lools needed tn
many kitchen processes.
The serving tray on wheels Hs
another distinctive step-saver. Sev
tral models are on the market
somo with single, others with double,
tray, mounted on rubbor-lired wheels
that cnn bo steered easily. Such a
tray enables tho home-maker to
serve a complete meal with one or
possibly two carryings of dishes, or
to clear the table with similar ease.
This kind of tray can also be used
excellently as n stack-table when
there is no drain to the right of the
sink, or il can be used to wheel
clean dishes fe the pantry, avoiding
constant trips and the dangers at
tendant on tray carrying. Larger
?ind more massive styles are found
in tho tvptcal'holel dish-cart, which
can be used equally well in tho large
household.
A unique refrigerator, most ex
cellent in country homes particu
larly, is a worth-while step-savor.
This "elevator ice-box" looks like
other small refrigerators, has three
compartments, hut is operated hy
clock-work pulleys. It ls so installed
that the pressure on a button in the
door causes the ice-box lo risc up
into the kitchen or a similar pres
sure causes its descent into the cel
lar. This saves tho hundreds of tedi
ous steps entailed by the country
home-maker who has to koep many
food products "down cellar." And
If the cellar ls cool, this Ice-box can
bo satisfactorily used even without
an ice supply. Any other device or
equipment which co-ordinates work,
such as these: A tool basket with
compartments, a house-maid's bucket
with places fur rags, foap, powder,
etc., speaking tubes or "house"
tele; '.' ;.. can be grouped pro

Every time I see in the dear old

I think that I will say something,
though it may be worth nothing. It
seems to mo that you could lay a I
pipe lino from tho Issaqueena Falls'

tunnel, say Ave Inches (or larger) j
that would flood your town with the j
fall lt. has. It seems to mo that would
be Ibo cheapest and freshest and 1'ie '
purest water you could over get. Hut
you may say that this ls none of my
business, and I acknowledge that.

I cannot help it that I was born in
