day people lay off to come to town;
whether there is any thing to be sold
or not, they come; then why not thke
advantage of it and make that a day

your competitor gets part of the

MADE MONEY ON CABuAGE PATCH.1t
People who aro talking bard timesi 1
that there is no money to be made on
the fa in, would (10 well to follow the I
example or Dr. B. F. Smith.' This I
gentkcman has a lot in Elberton con
taning lss than thice quarters of an
aer--to be acurate, '70-100 acres -
ou which he has cleared already this
year. $185. This profit came firom
the production of cabbage. Last fall
he planted this plat of ground in
this vegetable, which have' been laid
by, and Friday he sold the crop for
$250 to Mr. J. 0. Ginn.
Within the next montb this crop
will be harvested and sold, after
which Dr. Siith proposes to put the
same ground in celery. on which he
hop(s to again make a big profit. The
doctor says he owns and operates a
three horse farm, and has pitted his
lot against the profits of his farm for
this year.-Elberton Star.
The Star, iml ain editorial, which fol
lows, speaks of what can be d .no
with a cabbage patch; and if it can
bo (10110 therc it can bo dlone here,
and elsewhero. Cabbage culture can
be made to pay in Pickens county
just as much as an.ywhere in the
State. Dr. Smith, at Easley, has a
plat of ground planted in onions,
andl he proposes putting this plat in
cabbage as soon as the onions are
taken up. lie is planting for market,
and incidentally for a profit, which
he will make.
'1 here is enough fruit that goes to
waste in this county to keep a big
cannery busy; then with the canning
of vegetables and the krauting of
cabbage, both for market, handsomne
money can be made. The Star sa3s
of cabbage culture:
"Heretofore the raising of cabbage
in the middle and lower portions of
our state has been, in rlmost every
every instance, a signal failure. The
mountaineer comes down front the
sun-capped mountains and verdlant
hills of North Georgia every winter
with loads of fine large cabbage, I
which ho readily sells in our market. I

dIo and1( lower sections should not

>f this city, has solved the problem,
mnd answers the question by his own
lemonstrationi, that we can.
