INCREASED COTTON PRODUCT.
improvement in Agricultural Methods In
j Twenty Years.
tjSomo recently published figure? nnd
other data with regard to the growth
fit cotton production, are interesting,
gays thp Savannah (Ga.) News. In ISiS
tho average yield per aero was SCO
pounds. During the 20 j ears tho acre
age devoted to cotton cultivation in
creased 128 per cent., while tho pro
duction increased 183 per cent. That
is .to pay, tho farms of the present day
are much more productive than wero
Uioso of 20 years ago. Tho reason
"is, as every practical farmer knows,
that agricultural methods have been
greatly improved during the time. In
'vesors and chemist's have labored with
tho farmer to the end of bringing tho
Sands up to a higher state of product! ve
ncss. Tho former have produced new
.implements for the cultivation of tho
soil in an improved and at tho same
,timo labor-saving manner. The latter
lave instructed tho farmer U3 to the
chemical elements needed for the en
richment of his soil, and the fertilizer
manufacturer has provided those ele
ments in comenicnt form for utilla
'tlon. Kule-o'-thumb farming has to a
great degree given way to scientific
farming. Those farmers who have not
their own test tubes and text books no

,which supply useful and accurate in
formation with regard to soils, fer

work. The farms, like everything else,

John R. McLean's
Without a single exception, there
is beyond doubt no greater or more
popular newspaper in the United
States than the Cincinnati Enquirer ;
or a more successful publisher than
its proprietor, Mr. John R. McLean.
The old-time prices for the Daily
Enquirer have been maintained, and
its circulation largely increased each
year; hard times and cheaper jour
nals failing to arrest its onward march
and high appreciation of the public
for its true worth and merit.
The Weekly Enquirer at beginning
of the campaign year was offered at
50 cents a year, and its circulation
increased by the addition of over
200,000 new subscribers j the most
substantial andfcaveted itestimonial a,
publisher could desire. i
When asked for the secret of such
success, Mr. McLean frankly answers:
The Enquirer has no opinions to force
upon its patrons, it simply prints the
facts and tells the truth that the reader
may form his own opinions. By
maintaining the price of the paper,
more news and greater variety can be
furnished, and every class of business
interests catered to, which a cheaper
journal cannot afford.
The very liberal support given the
Enquirer by the public at large, makes
it incumbent upon the management
to serve it faithfully with zeal and en
terprise in minor matters as well as
those of greater magnitude.
