Plant a Patch of Rutabagga Turnips.
We never fail to get a good stand of
rutabagga turnips, nor do we fail to
make a good crop any year.
Rutabaggas are good feed for cows,
hogs, horses and people, and a fair
crop of 800 bushels to the acre, can be
grown moat any year. We fed our
bin: feed of last year's turnipB this
year May 10th when our spring tur
nips were ready and full grown.
Commence now by ploughing and
thoroughly pulverizing a good piece
of stubble laud. After you have the
land in good condition put on all the
manure or fertilizer intended for this
crop and plough it in with small turn
plow or disc harrow. It is very im
portant to have the land well pulver
ized and smooth; paok it down well
with roller or some kind of board or
You Bhould rnn a cultivator or disc
over this every 10 days or less time,
following it with roller or drag. This
roller or drag brings the moisture up
near the surface in dry weather and
keens it there.
About the 15th of August work oil'
rows 18 to 20 indien wide, put in seed
in this trench and cover by running a
wheelbarrow in the trench. You can
cultivate moisture into the land and
not have to wait for rain to get a good
stand of Rutabaggas.
Hold up there, all ye faithful that
have held out to the end should now
be charitable to those who have broke
the faith and sold their cotton for 7i
cents or even at 8} cents, for these mis
guided, unfaithful brethren appreciate
their loss and are feeling bad enough
about it. Do not abuse these weak
brethren for not using better faith and
judgment, when they really did not
?ave any better faith or judgment to
use. These unfortunate brethren di d,
beyond doubt, the very best they could
for themselves as they saw it, but the
worst feature about it is that these
follows were too selfish. They did
not take broad enough vie w about this
matter; they never once took in con
sideration the fact that the counsel of a
body of our wisest and best men are
worth more than the counsel of one
man, or that two heads ia better than
one, if one ia a sheep's head. Some of
these cotton growers were frightened
into selling because they did not
possess the grit and good judgment to
resist the bluff and deceptive, lying
schemes of the cotton bears, while
another claaa of cotton growers were
forced to take what was offered be
cause they had no safe and cheap
storehouses to place their cotton in
that they might hold it off the market
as a collateral until prices were profit
How long will it be until each and
every cotton (-rower is cognizant of
the fact that each and every cotton
grower?loth small and large alike?
are interested in the welfare of each
other as to the price of cotton'/
How long will it take the indepen
dent cotton grower to appreciate the
faot that he suffers loss by the unbusi
nesslike methods of his lens fortunate
neighbors in selling their cottonT
How long will it be until the truth
of the situation comes home to the
more independent'business class of
cotton growers that if ever theoe less
fortunate, unthoughtful neighbors of
theirs gain knowledge of how to do
better for themselves chat the men in
possession of theso factB must teach it
to those who have it not?
Remember, that unto thoso to whom
much has been given much is expect
ed. Use your talents for good ami the
good wiU grow in you.
How long will it be until the truth
in tuis matter can bo driven into the
minds of the prejudiced cluss of far
mers, that thee- organized efforts
among farmers does mean that wo are
all in it for tho money and prolits
there is in it for each and every one of
us? But we are not in it to make this
money off of the farmer, but we are in
it to make money by demanding an
equitable profit for our labor and thu?
protect and retain that which by right
already belongs to us.
How long will it take our best men
to recall too lessons of tboir youth
that a fence is just so strong as il?
weakest place, and that if one-half
the cotton growers act tho fool in sell
ing their cotton that all cotton grow
ers suffer as though we were all fools?
If you expect a man to cut wood for
you and this man has no axe you will
have to furnish the axe or the wood
cannot be cat. So it is about soiling
cotton. If evor these unfortunate
Jiroducers that are mines of good
udgment and business qualifications
become tho possessors of this impor
tant information the farmers that have
it must carry it to thoBe that have it not.
? A storo belonging to John L.
Bain in the mill district in Dillon
was burned. It is thought that the
fire was sot by one of his customers
who was angered by what Bain called
his "dog list" whioh he posted on his
store door of those who would not pay
him on pay day.
? An examination shows that Ben
jamin H Gaskill, a broker, who died
four weeks ago, had swindled Phila
delphia banks out of nearly a million
dollars by forged papers. The reve

he was supposed to be wealthy and

the men who fought in the war with
Mexico met in Dallas reoently. Many
of these are men of considerable dis
tinction, and practically all of them
have lived on this earth for much
longer than the time usually allotted
to men. Probably 75 per cent of them
are far past the three-score and ten
mark. Although all show tho effects
of age, they still givo evidenoe of the
virility of the manhood of this coun
