GEO. R. JAMES SAYS
A FEW THINGS Of INIEREST
George R. James, of Memphis,
Tenn., is known to many of our read
ers, and has spoken before the 1hila
delphia and Sout!hern implement deal
ers' conventions, and we have hoped
that every man could know this giant
of intellect, this man of untiring ef
fort, this nina with constructive
genius. - 1 *
Mr. James lives and farms in a cot
ton section and on December 29th he
spoke to the Memphis Chamber of
Commerce on "The Remedy for Fin
ancial Depression in the Memphis Dis
trict," which includes M ississippi.
He reminded his audience that his
facts were predicated on (a) his per
sonal observations and investigations
made during a period of ten to ewelve
years; (b) upon experience gained in
operating his own farm; (c) informa
tion gained while acting on the War
Industries Board as chief of the cot
With the foundation laid, Mr. James
said that the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture showed that in
1919 Arkansas, Mississippi and Ten
nessee produced an average of 164
pounds of cotton per acre, while the
average in Virginia and the Carolinas
was 253 pounds per acre. He record
ed his personal experience as a farm
er and said:
"It may he said that our people can
not get a better production, but my
own experience shows this to be a
fallacy. When I bought my farm at
Porest Iill it had 210 agcres in cotton.
I purchased the place in August and
when the time came for gathering the
0rop and the harverting was all com
pleted, my cotton p roluction amount
ed to just thirty bales-an average
Of one bale to seven acros, or n little
less than one-half of the average pro
duction in the Memphis trade terri
"Operating my farm along the lines
suggested by Mr. C. T. A mes, director
of the llolly Springs, Mississippi, F~x
periment Station, I was able to in
crease the pr-oduction from one bale
to seven acres to slightly more than
one full hale per acre, in less than six
years time. This result was obtained
by (a) terracing the land at a money
cost of less than one dollar pr acre.
(This terracing controlled the distri
bution of the water on the place and
eliminated the tax or dr ain up ..o the
land imposed by the winter rainus
leeching out the plant food as built up
"b) Tlhe next step was liming the
land wvith crushed lime rock, an aver
age of two tons Pet acre, at a cost of
less than $5 perP acre for the limestone
and lahor of distribut ion. (All of the
lands in the brown loam setion are
deficient in lime, andl it is my opinion
that these lands can never be brought
to a high degree of fertility without
this necessary ''nient being art ilical

A MANNING INTERVIEW
Mr'. White Tells ilis Experience.
The following brief account of an
interview with a Manning man eleven
years ago, and its sequel, will be read
with keen interest by every citizen.
W. R. White, S. Boundry St., Mann
ing, gave the following statement
March 19, 1908: "1 suffered with
kidney trouble for some years. 11
would have to get up a good deal dur
ing the night to Iass the kidney secre
tions which were highly colored and
containedi a brick-dust-like sediment.
I suffered constantly with backache
and there were sharp pains across my
loins. My back ached badly and I
certainly wa sin misery. I used Doan's
Kidney Pills and they gave me splen
did relief, making me feel better in
NEARLY TEN YEARS LATER, or
on February 15, 1918 Mr. White said:
"It is always a pleasure to recommend
Doan's Kidney Pills. I found them
the onjy remedy that did me any good,I
in fact Doan's cured me of all my
Price 60c, at all dealers. Don't
sisoply ask for a kidney remedy-get

seed and cultivation, and with the
winter cover crops of crimson Clover,
or r-ye and vetch, 'for the land's sake,'
entirely turned under in the spring.
"(d) This wvas followed by a crop
of corn with peas or soy beans, the
corn gathered and the balance pastur
ed by live stock.
"It is from personal experience,
therefore, as well as from observation,
that I absolutely know that every
acre of land now in cultivation im
West Tennessee, Arkansas an( Mis
sissippi can be made to produce, by a
sane program of soil building agricul
ture, equally as much cotton as is pro
duced on the average in North Caro
lina, South Carolina and Virginia."
Mr. James pointed out the waste in
labor by not using the. best imple
ments and showed the saving by this;
spoke of the waste in packing for
foreign shipment; waste in ginning
and classification at the gin.
Speaking on the general cotton sit
uation he said that there is now in the
markets of the world enough cotton
to meet al Ithe 1921 requirements, and
predicted that only a 5,000,000-bale
in 1921 would restore prosperity to
the South in case waste was eliminat
He summarized the items of waste
in the territory to be:
Soil fertility -------- -------$20.00
Labor (cultivating only) . - .__4.16
Imported stock feed .. .._-----2.50
Weather an( packing damage -..7.50
Linteis-waste in ginning -- -.1.40
Grading and classifying - ------1.00
Freight and storage 1.00
Boll weevil (10 per cent. of crop .t
12 cents) -- ...- ....- _.._-.00
Total waste-.... --. ...$43.56
le next pointed oui, that a wvaste of
$43.56 per hale meant a loss of $43,
560,000 in the Memphis territory. Ile
placed tihe remedy as being in the
hands of the farmer, the merchanut,
the banker and all the people, and in
