Having started upon the pursuits
of life on the farm, then the traits
of character and habits will be
formed that will make life a success
or a failure.
Every farmer should study the sur
roundings of his farm and compare
them with those of other farmers
and bring them up to the highest
possible standard of improvement
year after year. Special care should
be taken that all out-bnildings, or
chan s, pastures, etc., should bo so
arranged as to be as convenient as
possible to the dwelling, thereby
saving time and unnecessary worry.
System should be scrupulously ad
hered to on the farm.
Everything consumed should, if
possible, be . raised on your farm,
thereby avoiding the necessity of
going into debt for supplies that
could be produced on ihe farm. It
is the little things, when properly
looked after and cared for, that
gives life its most valued sphere
and distinguishes pleasure and pros
perity from vexation and poverty.

favorable conditions from now on,
it will be impossible to make half a
crop. In the eastern and northern
parts of the county the prospects
are more encouraging. Mr. K. E.
Hornsby, of Crainesvillez and Es
quire Jim Couner, of Teague, both
of whom were here Tuesday, in
form us that they have had good
rains in their sections and that crops
are looking well. The southern
part of the county is also badly in
need of rain. In the immediate
neighborhood of Bolivar crops are
