Whe? be's only weak and mortal.

A NEWSPAPER'S MISSION.
The mission of a newspaper is not
alone dlscuaslon of profitless political
questions, the publication ot
or thc smearing of neighborhood gos
sip which should be consigned to
Such ls not thc mUslou of thc dig
nified newspaper. The paper that
would help itself must always be
ready lo help ha town. Whatever adds
lo thc population and wealth of thc
town holpB the gaper. The prosper

terdependent, und tho paper th tl ls
eager lo help its renders is generally
not ni lowed to go un re warded. We
repeat "generally" for wo have seen
some very public spirited and reully
creditable pupers that received very
little suppori from the community.
Along this line we quote some in
teresting comments from the Manu
facturers' Record up;>n the subject
"What a Newspuper ("un Do." The
Record says: :
"If those papers that have formed
the habit of giving their space lo
iMiiitics and sensations would study
tho needs of their towns and aid In
movements to supply them, they
would (ind the business ot newspaper
masing more profitable, moro pleas
ant, und, in the long run, fur more
"Then* are so many communities III
the South that need to ho awakened
to their own opportunities for ptrofit
uble enterprises that hardly anybody
knows anything about that every
newspaper in that section ought to
trumpet them in every issue. To do
less seems a neglect of duty. I?ot
thoso who have not heretofore pur
sued that policy Btudy Industrial con
ditions anti commercial possibilities
In their rommunities so tliat they can
discuss them clearly nnd intelligently,
and then muko a rule that no issue of
their papers shall go to press without
ono or more articles treating of such
matters, and they will be surprised
to hnd what interesting subjects they
have been overlooking. They will
also be surprised to find how readily
their readers begin to appreciate thc
new doparture, with what a spirit of
enthusiasm they will Immediately im
bue the people general ly. and how
great amount of good that will fol
low tho continuation of such efforts.
"A newspaper ought to regard itself
and bo regarded hy others as a busi
ness proposition, and not as a politi
cal ono, and lt ought to lay tho foun
dation of its own business upon thc
broadest, most enduring basis hy
earnest efforts to build up thc busi
ness of its community."-Columbia
Put the Idle Acres to Work.
He would not be regarded as u
wiac business man who kept half hts
capital idle, nor Is tho mannfa.turlng
plant likely to bc* prosperous which
run:, or operates only up to half ifs
capacity; and yet half the lands ot
thc South arc producing no crop of
value. Those lands which arc bring
ing in no revenue arc consuming thc
fruits of our labor from the cultivat
ed acres. It takes too large n part of
tbec rops of our cultivated acres to
pay the Interest and taxes on the Idle
lt, therefore, follows that the lands
Which are producing nothing ot value
should be, put into permanent pas
tures as far as conditions and capi
tal will permit. Wc mention capital
advisedly, for it requires money to'
make a pasture. An area of waste
land does not become a pasture by
merely enclosing with a fence. It Is
true that such land will produce
some grnslng, and If ' it will furnish
enough feed to pay for the fence, and
no moro money is available than is
necessary to build this fence, then
that should be tho first step taken to
wards tho making of tbc pasture; but
a fence alone will not often produce
a ..'?.(id pasture on Southern lands.
Pasture plants are slow growing
j plants and in the struggle for exist
ence, if unaided by man. they are
overpowered by rang or vigorous
growing non-pasture plants. The sec
ond step, therefore, in making a per
manent pasturo is to destroy and
keep down the non pasture plants. To
the extent that this Is done, or to thc
oxtcnt this ls practicable, will depend
tho valuo of tho pasture and the feed
lt -will supply. The third essential

Are Yon Lctiinir Your Lands I#oaft
:*Let us consider a typical Southern
hill farm of 160 acres: Such sn
average farm will have from 40 to BO
acres in cultivation, from three to
ten-acres In a pasture, so-called, and
the remainder, from 80 to 100 acres.
Is lying ont, a source of loss, rather
than a source of income. This waste
?.nd represents an Investment' of
from ?to to $S0 an acre, and the in
terest qn this plus taxes will amount
to from $1 to $2 an acre each yeer.
How to 'uange this loss' into a gain
ls a problem we must solve.
. How this can be done ls nearly al
ways largely a local problem, but it
ls certainly safe to say that in nearly
avery case tbe pasture area should
he enlarged and grasses and clovers
seeded. . Particularly ts this the sur
oBt means of making profitable tho
rougher lands that should, not be put.
under cultivation. Then it will often
pay well where only one or two
horses and mules are used, to put
inoiv of the level br gently rolling
lands under th? plow, In order that
Implements may bo handled to great

Getting Big Crops at Small.Cont,
For tho average general crop farm
er the biggest single factor in soil
productivity is humus-rotted straw,
clover leaves" and stems, peavlnes,
cotton and corn stalks. The farmer
who Alis lils Boil chuck full of -this
material has taken out thc be:,*
drouth insurance known. Moreover,
if a large part of the humus is obtain
ed from such soil-building crops aa
clovers, (feas and beans, there need
be no money spent for fertilisers like
cottonseed meal and nitral, of soda.
The manw ho does not h ow the
wonderful value o? humus has yet to
