of cotton goods in all departmen'As of
their- numerous plants.
Cotton bags, cotton sheetings, -and
cotton coverings; for meats are being;
substituted for other -material where
ever possible. An ordinary year's re
quirements for this fi-m amounts to
over ten million yards, an I with their
present "Help the iSouthi" poicy their
consumption of cotton goods will be
very largely increased.I
One item alone, that of using Cotton
instead of jute tainkage press cloths,
has ad-led 300,000 yards to the Swift'

TREES ALONG COUNTRY ROADS~
Not Only Useful as Shade to Stock ln
Fields, but Add Greatly to Beauty
At a, recent farmers' Institute meet
ing the planting of trees along the
country roads was advocated. It -is~
a plan worthy of consideration every
where. Trees beside country -high
ways are not of less valne and im
portance than along the streets of a:
city.. They are not only useful as -
shade to the stock in the fields and
to those who travel along the roads,
but they add greatly to the beauty:of
the thoroughfares and are a distinct
asset to the farmers by increasing'
the attractiveness of their land, says
an Illinois writer in Farmer's 'Re
The theory of the speaker was that
the trees should be planted inside of.
*the road boundaries and not .on the
frm land, and that the plantingshould
be done as a part of the road improve
ment at public expense or by local or-.
ganiztons out of a common fund.
The work would have to be done 'with
system, of course, and provision made
for the care of the trees once tliey
were planted, but this system could
easily be worked out. Objection
might be raised in some quarters that
shaded roads would yt dry out eas
ily after .rains and would, therefore,
be muddy at inconvenient times, but
the proper training and trimming of
the trees would remedy this diffculty.
Every one, even -the farmer with
out a shade tree on his premises, ad
mits the attraction of a shaded road
on a hot summer day. Every traveler
on such a day greets a bit of woods
or an overhanging orchard as an oasis
in a desert land arnd 'U.shes that it

al land owner wno has lined his side
of the road with shade trees-or even.
with fruit trees-is regarded by the
traveler as a good Samaritan and
blessings go out to him. The time
will come, perhaps, when trees along
he country roads are desirable. and
