FINE FOR FARMERS
Unprecedented Progress Marked tho
First Month of New Year?Some
Observations on the General Situa
tion in the County.
While the weather is always n topi
cal subject with the farmer and the
"weather men" the variety prevailing
during the gerater part of January
was quite remarkable?much of it
spring-like? and practically all of
it favorable for farm and other out
door work. Not In recent years has
there been more headway made on
the farm in the way of preparing lands
for the approaching planting season
than has marked the first month of
Indeed, tho fields look like the fann
er was on the very eve of the planting
season or the first week in April in
this section, as so mucti advanced
ploughing h:.s been don? already. And
it is quite noteworthy that this pre
paration is being done on a more
thorough scale than usual the plough
ing is deeper and better, terracing
and ditching more ONtenslve, and, up
on the whole, the entire system of
farm operation appears to have moved
up several weeks. Many farmers are
preparing their own fertilizer, too,
while the sales of the commercial
brands v ill doubtless exceed all pre
ions years, according to ngents who
represent different guano concerns in
Another evidence of the farmers'
preparedness for the IfJll crop season
is observed in the replenished and
excellent condition of his stock. He
has rid himself of all "plugs" appa
rently, in exchange for young and
larger mules and horses, particularly
mules. And it is further observed
that an increased number of the
l,aureus farmers are going in for im
proved farm machinery, new turn
plows, harrows and the like.
Nineteen eleven starts out pro
pitiously for the planter, and augeni
well tor all kinds of business.

he was quite succ?snral in his prac

his wonderful skill in old chronic
cases that be went over to Honea Path
to interview him. And ho came back
