'July and August Are .the Princi-
pal Harvesting Months,
Says Report Just
. Missouri farmers plint crops ten
months in lie ear, according to a report
on planting time Just completed by E.
A. Logan, agricultural statistician for
Missouri, and Jeell Mayes, secretary of
tue State Board of Agriculture. Ine
, farmer's only rest from planting comes
taring tbe months of December and
, January.. The busiest months are April,
May and June.
, The report shows that farming is not
the "hit and miss game, which many
pesons think, but that it requires plan
ning and investment of capital with the
t employment of much skill months anead
of "cashing-in time," jnst the same as in
other lines of production. Planting real
ly begins in tbe fall of the year before
the harvest with the seeding of winter
heat and rye in September and Octo-
cer. A considerable, proportion ol al
falfa and timothy is also sown at this
time In February clover, timothy, and
bluegrass reed are sown but the spring
work is nually considered to begin with
tbe planting of oats, barley and potatoes
, In March. In April the real rush begins
vtth tbe planting of com, which contin
ues through May and lata into June. Soy
beans, kaffr, sorghum, cane, fcroomcom.
cow peas, millet and garden crops are
also" planted during rhis period. July
and August are the principal harvesting
months and little is planted except buck,
to heat ajd turnips.
Tbe record shows not only when crops
are planted but what the average fanner
considers the best time for 'planting each
crop. The percentage of planting by
crops for each month is as follows:

1920 A GOOD YEAR;
SAY BUSINESS MEN
they will rise very much for tome timet"
'A good year and do not think, that
the coming year will be any better for
the business man," said L O. Hockaday
of the Higbee & Hockaday Clothing
Company, when speaking cf the old year.
"Lower and more stable conditions will

TO TEACH JAZZ
Business conditions will become stead
ier with tbe coming of tbe new year, in
the opinion of Columbia business men.
Prices of some commodities are due to
drop some more and those on other arti
cles will increase slightly.
"Our business for the past year has
been about bke the average. Gains on
one article are offset by losses on
another. I think that with the coming of
a new year that conditions will become
settled and remain stable. Taken all
around, the past year has dealt leniently
with me and I have hopes for a success
ful year in 1921," said W; E. Johnston
of Johnston Brothers Grocery.
"We have bad a fairly goodjrear but
Ao not look for any pronounced change
in business in the coming year, said A.
L. Ferguson of the Virginia Pharmacy.
"As for a Jail in drug prices, there is
none to be expected, since the price cf
drugs did not rise much during the year.
All toilet articles and tooth pastes and
other commodities which contain a per.
centage of alcohol, -will not decrease and
there is a possibility jf a slight rise. A
man's business is what he makes it," con
cluded Mr. Ferguson.
"We have no reason to look forward to
a bad year," said C B. Miller of the
Miller Shoe Company. The year was
featured by high prices and a audden
drop since November, but I see no reason
for a continuance of the slump which is
"Last year was the greatest year for
the clothing manufacturers In the last
thirty 6ve years," said W. II. Rucker,
travelinc: renresentative of the Sloan &
Forns Hat Company of St. Louis. I have
been on tbe road lor the last thirty three
years and my sales this year exceeded by
far those of any other year. Prices are
bound to come down and to remain sta
ble for some time. I do not think that
