A good weeder ron over cotton or

vast amount of young weede and grass
and will pay for itself everyday over
again when used with good judgment.
In sowing peas on stubble land last
season we tried to plow a piece of land
with a two-horse plow, but after plow
ing a strip across the Held, concluded
to wait until it rained. When the rain
did come wo got into a hurry and plow
ed in all tho hold with one-horse plows,
running right across the strip plowed
deep with two-horse plow, aud the re
sale was that the deep plowed strip had
n richer color all tho season and the
pens grew about ono foot taller than
Will Mr. Williamson reply?
Now, if Mr. Williamson's stunting
procees proves with all ot us to be ns
prolitablo and satisfactory as it has
with Mr. Williamson, we can then see
what h fool wo have all along been for
losing BO much sleep over the stunting
corn habit of our free negroes and some
of our white tenants, too. We have
watched this seemingly und void able
stunting process going on about us,
more or . lesB every year, with a great
deal of displeasure; counting the ap
parent lo&s as we passed by. But if
Afr. Williamson's success in thia im.
proved stunting corn practice proves
to be no good with others aa with him
eelf, we can truly say to one another
along the line, farmers, "what fools
we mortals be." .
Mr. Williamson-wo do not *nce
doubt-baa been thoroughly convinced
that hie etnnting plan ia alf right or he
would not practico thia plan, let alone
advocate it in publie print. Bntwbat
we want to know from Mr. William
eon now is, how does he know that
there ia more in the stunting of bia
oom than there waa in the aide appli
cation of the fertilizer? Did Mr. Wil
liamaon make repeated, comparative
teats upon different soils and different
season B by the actual weighing of the
different yields and aotual measure
ments aa to the area under bia com
parative teot? or did bo form bia con
clusions, like many of. un have done
before, by i he mers looks of the thing?
We would like to hear from Mr.
Williamson oh thia eubject. aa many of
our people are making these pointed
inquiries of Our bureau about these

Williamson, and the breeding of new

Mason, Tro fool very m?i?h ?ike there is
something doing along the right line
by onr fermera, which ia gratifying to
the whole progressive family of our
farmers. ? - .. .
Thia progressive turn of the minda
of our Ho ut her a farmers away from the
all cotton ayatem to the more sensible
rotation plana and the inclination to
build np -the land upon a permanent
8lan of rotation ia like the dawn of a
right new day for our Southern farm

And hero ia another thing, Brother
Stribling, r.bout this corn raising
proposition: Mr. T. M. Wolborn, one'
amone: the most progressive members
of our Union, and ono whoso ability ns
au up-to-date farmer ia recognized by
UH ali, says that bo can take a pieco
of land, iuu it in corn every year, nnd
by planting peas between each hill of
com and theu sowing them in the mid
dle ot lay-by time, can improvo it fas
ter than be can to run tho name land
in cotton every year and put all the
atable manure on it that he eau inako.
Now, listen at some old knotty-headed,
one-sided, all-cotton raising farmer
say that ho don't believe it. Well,
then, come around and take a peep at
Broiher Welborn's farm and see if
you don't go back home and order you
a kicking machine nitb which to give
yourself justice foi haviug no moro
farming sense than you've got.
And now, in conclusion, wo want to
say that Five Forks Union preaches
and practices crop diversification, and
the other fellow can do just as he
likes, but when he comes around to
buy corn from us, and we lind that he
doesn't try to raise it. wo will put a
Erice to him that will givo him the
