Twelve Things to do in January.
(1) Start the year like a business
man. Take an inventory of your prop
erty, and begin an accurate account
of receipts and expenses.
(2) See that all 1!>0!) debts are
promptly cleared off. There was nev
er a better time to get even with the
world and then stay so.
(3) No land should be bare In win
ter, but if any is without cover crops,
plow in readiness for spring planting.
( t) See that all slock and poultry j
are properly sheltered. Shelter i%
cheaper than feed.
(6) Send for catalogs of dealers In
improved seeds, implements and ma
chinery. Plan to grow more produc
tive varieties of all crops and culti
vate with all possible cheap horse
power instead of expensive hand labor.
(C>> Set about getting an improved'
breed of poultry, hogs and cattle this
(7) Clean up the sprouts and brush
and 11(1 up the gullies that separate
yolir patches and unite them in great
broad, evenly cultivated fields.
(S) Don't go crazy about the old
line, "money crops." There is money
in corn and hay and cattle as well as
in cotton and tobacco.
(!>) Drain that wet place on your
farm. It Will probably be the most
fertile spot you have.
(10) May out a scheme for your
winde farm, indicating the crops to go
in each field, all arranged with due
regard to the value of rotation.
(11) Keep in health by using warm
clothing, fresh air In steeping rooms,
moderation in eating, and prompt at
tention to colds. Let patent medi

organizing hoys' corn clubs in your
