This is one great trouble with our
farmers, they go by jerks and follow
the craze, whatever it may be
heat, tobacco, cattle, sheep, hogs or
horses and by the time they are
well established in one thing the
market is glutted, prices decline and
the craze is over. We raised great
crops of tobacco until the land was
worn out and prices declined. Then
many went into the line cattle busi

fertile farm, where there is good
iving, easy circumstances, the land
free from mortgage and some money
ahead, and we will show a place well
stocked with cattle, hogs and sheep,
good horses and mules and a farmer
who pays more attention to his farm
than he does to politics, stock stores
and horses. And you will never
catch him spending a half day meet
ing with his neighbors at the depot
to divide out a barrel of coal oil in
Ave gallon lots to save one cent on the
gallon, nor even five cents. It costs
ess to raise cattle, hogs and sheep
than anything else that is produced on
a farm, even at low prices. Afield
in clover will produce more per acre
in live stock than one that is run
every year in wheat, and it will the
following year produce double as
much in wheat or corn as the one
eft to rest, growing weeds while the
owner is running the joint stock
store; while the man with the clover
field will have more money at the
end of the year than the man who
devotes his time to training trotting
horses for the races. Every reader
must admit that these are plain,
that facts solid can't be controverted.
We desire to impress them on
our larming people, hoping that they
may profit by experience. This is
unquestionably a tine hog growing

stead of having a great surplus of
meat to sell, as in years past, we are
buying our bacon from Western far

demand here all summer at a pre
mium and not enough to supply the
city demand. Just now we would
urge our farmers, while raising as
many fine horses ns they please, to
