NOW IS THE TIME
TO DO THINGS
By H. B. Ralls, Southern Represen
tative, American Hampshire Swine
No greater opportunity ever pre
sented itself, for the bringing into
play of the nerve, sand, red blood,
grit and the never quit qualities of
our forefathers as they came home
from the Civil War, to take up the
work of reconstruction. Our troubles
today are small compared to theirs
and as I study the situation it seems
to me a good time to build over, on a
better foundation, and now is the time,
of all times, to get busy doing it.
There is no use sitting around wait
ing for good times to return, because
these good times won't come until we
mako them come. We have got to dig
this thing out and we had just as well
get at it.
No greater prophecy was ever writ
ten, than that of Henry W. Grady, in
1888: "When every farmer in the
South -shall eat bread from his own
fields and meat from his own pastures
and disturbed by no creditor and en
slaved by no debt; shall sit among his
teeming gardens and orchards and
vineyards and dairies and barn yards.
pitching his crop in his own wisdom
and growing them in independence,
making cotton his clean surplus and
slling it in his own time and in his
ci osen market and not at a master's
bidding; getti-ig his pay in c-sh and
not in a receipted mortgage, that dis
charges his debt but does not restore
Uis freedom, then shall be breaking
the fullness of our dry." Tris new
day is coming V pass 1nd if we
measure up to our responsibilities, it
will not be long.
Georgia is now the sixth pork pro
ducing state in the Union and other
food and feed crops and fruits are be
ing produced in like proportion, but
we are really "just piddling along,"
when we compare what we are doing
with wvhat we could do, if we wvould
live up to our opportunities and ad
vantages. is it piossible that God has
blest us so wonderfully, in soils, eli
mate and ia in fall and~ it is so easy ''to
make enough stuff~ to do us," that we
have become too well sat isfied anrd
lost our ambit ion for achievement and
the good things of life?
I madec a trip through Southern
Cali forniai in .Ja nuary, wherie I travel

get a good, well developed case of dis
satisfaction and I think most of us
have it. We are so sore and tired and
disgusted and disheartened, that we
almost want to crawl off and die. But
we are not going to do that, we are
going to apply the remedy, WORK,
and get well and we are going to mas
ter this new system of Mr. Grady's
and use it in developing this wonder
ful country of ours into a section of
beautiful homes and churches and
schools and towns and cities, like it
ought to be.
All of the old time "squeeze 'em"
bankers are going to (lie soeic of these

responsibility and obligations to their

The banker, the business man, and
the farmer of the South, are going to

we may eat bread from our own fields
and meat from our own pastures and
sit in independence, amid our own gar
dens and orchards and vineyards and
dairies and barnyards, the only way
under the sun the cotton acreage will
ever be reduced and a fair price ob
tained for what is produced.
I think it is a mighty good time to
do this thing now. It would make us
forget a lot of our troubles and the
sooner we start, the sooner we will
realize "the fullness of our (lay."
