All Flesh is Grass.
Do you believe that all flesh is grass?
If you do. stop worrying about the
tine grass among the cotton; it is just
possible that something might torn up
to make it pay better to pull the cotton
out and let the grass grow
While you are sweating *ver four
acreB to get one bale pi cot* on, it is a
good time to think a little. 1 T<*w mucb
etter and cheaper it would be .0 grow
one bale on one acre and pnt .he other
three in peas and corn. O- j bale to
the acre means one-fourth ine amount
of hoeing and plowing; and yon all
know that it is better and quicker
work to hoe an acre of good cotton
than it is to hoe the little possum-ear
looking stuff that sticks close to the
ground; you can also plow closer to the
long shank good cotton than yon can
to the little measly looking staff that
takes four or more acres to the bale.
If you get in a tight place and it
looks like you cannot get over all your
cotton in time, hoo out two rows and
leave two rows, take a large shovel or
double-jack plow and hitch two mules
to it and throw down the whole bed at
one furrow and put in early corn in
the two rowa left out, and the chances
are that you will make about as much
cotton on the two rowa as. you would
on the four rows, and you will have a
great chance more corn and forage at
If you havo already so much corn
planted as you may probably need,
cow peas are good for both man and
beast, and. this pea crop is about the
only crop we usually plant for a sum
mer crop that always leaves the land
richer than before planting.
We have seen some fine crops of peas
and corn grown on abandoned cotton
land without using the hoe at all; mix
the seed peas and corn together and
cover lightly down in the deep furrow
with a double-foot plow and then
.work earth to the crop with small cul
tivators, leaving rows about on a level
when plowing the last time.
You can never make a bale of cotton i
to the acre by just dumping down
large quantities of fertilizers in the
furrows; you will have to plow deep and
mix the manure with deep ploughed
Are you planning to try a package of
nitro-culture on cow peas? If you do
it might put yon on to a plan that
would revolutionize yonr whole system
of farming and change your habits
from a kicker to a happy and prosper
Remember that it matters but little
how cheap you grow your cotton it you
allow the buyer to set prices for you.
He is the one that reaps the profits,
regardless of the matter of cost to
If yon or some of your family were
oick you no don M would send for a
doctor, and iL' you had a case in court
it is the custom to employa lawyer
who understands the law to manage
your aide of the ease for you
Well, now, when it comes to selling
your years' crop of cotton for a profit
able price yon are up against a prob
lem far more difficult to aolve than any
of the above. In order to command
the situation you must co-operate with
at least 200 cotton growing counties
whose combined crop of " cotton
amounts to something like three hun
dred million dollars. You can never
make prices and maintain these prices
until you concentrate your cotton and
Eut the Belling of this cotton into the
ands of your best business men. It
is f oolish to say that you have no
honest men among you to whom you
can trust to do this business for you,
when we all know that you are com
pelled to trust some one to price your
cotton, whether it be the man that
wants to buy it low as he can, .or the
man that is with you.

Fertilizer Tags to the Rear.
We have about enough of this tag
question; it is high time qow that we
make up a summary of all the evidence
in this and rest the case with the far
mers. Let the farmers tack this
whole subject up on the wall for future
reference. This guano subject is one
of the kind the more you stir it the
more it stinks. We have just heard
from a good man in Georgia that he
baa found twenty-five thousand extra
taga in his fertilizer sacks. Mow this
looks like the climax, and it is time to
let the curtains down on this show up.
Wa are' all no doubt sick and tired of
this disgusting thing, some of ns now
get vigorous if we smell fertilizers
passing along the road.
Wall, Mr. farmer, what do yon think
about paying for these tags that have
been thrown await Are you going to
When this tax on fertilizer was up in
the legislature many farmers and fer
tiliser man said then that the fanner
would bave to pay for theae tags, and
the way the thing now looke tho fer
tilizer men don't expect to pay this
bUL if thoy did, thoy conld net afford
be throw the taga around so carelessly.
Farmers, it is time to talk less about
thl? affair and do something.
