A couple of our leading farmer

of enough other hogs to make up F

once and make arrangements abou

We. will do our best to take care o
your ipterests in selling these hogl
and if possible see that you get th
full market price for the class of stuf
that you put on the market.
Remember, that if you are expect
mag to iarket any hogs by the fifteen
th of October, they should be gottei
off of any such feeds .as peanuts o
soy beans and put on a full corn fee<
to give them a smooth, hard flesh
Soft hogs will be docked on the mar
kets, so do not have them soft.
Following this shipment I hope t(

Next year is going to be anothe
fine year for the farmer to live a
home, and for his livestock to live a
home. Therefore don't neglect plant
ing your small grain crops at the pro
per time. I think that most farmer
can well afford to plant a few acre
of wheat.. It is foolish for us to plan
anything like a crop of cotton in 1922
-and we are going to have more lan,
than anything else.
For your wheat select a good piec
of land, nQt Your poorest, and prefer
ably one having a fair amount of cla
in it. If there is not too much litte
on the land prepare it by thoroughl
disking with a good disc 'harroi
Where this can be done, I prefer it t
plowing the land, as we need a firr
seed bed for wheat. If necessary t
plow do this some time before plant
ing in order to give the soil time t
settle, and if a roller is available I
will probably pay you to pack th

e The cotton crop is far below what
t ;yas expected even thirty days ago,
r Many of our farmers are only getting
I from three to seven bales on from
r forty to sixty acres of land. And the
situation is becoming alarming, as it
a is a fact that many of the land rent
ers will not make anything like the
rent, and just what the outcome is
going to be is yet a problem unsolved.
But in discussing this matter with Mr.
C. M. Davis, one among our oldest,
and honored citizens recently. Mr.
Davis said: "There must be spirit
of co-operation, or a spirit of live and
let live, between the landlord and the
renter, and between the landlord and
the merchant. In other words it
seemed but reasonable that the land
lord should take say one bale and let
the merchant have one bale, and by
so doing, the landlord, the renter and
the merchant might be able to bridge
over the boll weevil londition. But
if the merchant fails of course the
renter will be out, on account of not
having any one to help him along
text year, and of course this will
orow the landlord out, as Ie will not
have any one to work his land. Mr.
Davis further said that he was prae
ticing just exactly what lie is pireach
ing, and knows that lie is doing noth
ing hut h3is duty. We belove Mr.
Dais has exactly the right ioea as to
the above, and wve believe it is going
to take the best mi . and the bc.
brains in this country to hold the p~eo.
ple and1( the business together for the
next few yeairs. And if there ever
was a time in thd hiistory of our coun -
ry that men should be men, it is this
very time. And wve are unwilling to
believe that wve have any men in this
great southi fhi(d 0f ours who wvill set

WILL CATCH WEEVILS
Estill, Sept. 19.-Farners here are
jubilant today because they no longer
fear the ravag as of the mighty boll
weevil. Frank Baker, a young Jew
ish merchai.t, left yesterday for
Washington to procure a natent on a
recent invention of his with which
he assuires his friends th it the boll
weevil will surely be pit to rout.
Fro mthe meagre' informa :on released
by Fr:znk it seems t1.it his machine
will be operated only during the (lark
hours of the night and is equippiel
with a light which, when the weevil
is disturbed from his peaceful slum
bers by a projecting piece of the
machine, he will be attracted by the
light and fly to certain death and
(lestruction. It is possible that local
interests will buy up the patent rights
and make bumper erops here while
the rest of the world continue; to
plant cotton to feed the weevil.
