Atlanta, Ga.-(Special.)---The cred
it system under which the agricultu
ral south works and stays poor is an
alyzed in a striking way by H. G.
Hastings of Atlanta, chairman of the
agricultural committee of the Cham
ber of Commerce, and a membiler of
the executive council of the South
easterns Fair. He does not mince
words lan talking about the situation.
"Every season during the last Arty
years," he says. "there has been trou
ble In the cetton belt whenever the
crop was lare and the price low, or
the crop short. Eaoh time the cry of
hard ties goes up, and the reason
baek eof it is that the farmers cannot
get enough money to pay their debtst
out ef their po-called cash crop-cot
tone. It is disheartenlg beoaisen it is
me absolutely annecessary.
"A cotton tfarmer's debts are large.
ly for food and grain, harged up.
against him oa the merchants books
at two to three times the price that
those same Items could be produced
on his own acres, and usually without
serious interference With a crop of cot.
ton as large as he now make.
"The trouble is that most cotton
farmers owe their erep Instead of
owning it when made.
"The credit way looks the easy
way, but it strangles most farmers
before they get through life.
"I have said repeatedly in public
addresses that no state or section of
any country can be prosperous that
is regularly dependednt on another
section for its food supplies. What
is true of a state or section is true
of the Individual farmer.
"The great exhibits of grain, hay ,
and food products shown at the South
eastern Fair held tin Atlanta in No
vember, give the lie to the statement
that these things cannot be growns
here at home successfully and protf
"A good big home gardena kept
planted and rightly tended through
the season will produce half of the!
living besides furnishing an abund
ance for canning or drying from the
"When we make our food and agrain
we will have few ! no debts at the
store; we will own instead of owe
our crops when made, and fairm
wealth will accumulate in the south I

Helps With the Lessons
At night when the children gather around
the sitting-room table studying their lessons for
a the next day, the telephone often rings. A little
neighbor a mile down the road wants help from
his school-mates. Children as well as grown-ups
et pleasure and profit from the farm telephone.
Do you know how little this service costs and how
valuable it is?
