8 FUTURE OF GOOD FARMING. 8
The day is coming?I may not live
to see It, but It 1? coming?whon In
stead fit a beggarly average of less
than 200 pounds of lint an acre all
over the South the bales of the crop
will be counted by the number of acres
planted, and the number of acres will
diminish rather than increase, while
the auxiliary crops will attain an im
portance that will mako us ashamed'
of the old Idea of merely growing
We will grow the supplies, of
course, and a great lot of them to soli
and to feed to hogs and cattle. And
it is the young men of the blood of
the Old South who are going to be the
leaders in this development. Not
that we will not welcome good men
from other sections, but the native
young men of the South are getting
their pride aroused and they are not
going to leave the future to men from
elsewhere, but they arc themselves
going to be the loaders. They are
hard at work, these Southern youths,
in the schools and colleges and in the
farm crop contests. They have no
old notions or superstitions to over
come, and the blood of the Old South
is going to mako the New South.?W.

In an nddrcss before the Dallas

Dobbs, president of the Associated Ad

among other things:
"In Seattle there Is a certain bank
that was 16 years getting Its savings
deposits up to $3,000,000. During that
period a certain young man had work
ed up to a position of some authority.
Ho went before the board of direct
ors and suggested advertising. They
were duly shocked; In fact, some
indignant. Hadn't they been adver
tising all these years, publishing at
stated intervals their financial con
dition? Hadn't they gotten out book
lota showing the front of the build

Hadn't they Issued calendars and
souvenirs, all In strictly dignified
"Tho young man, however, persist
ent as well as logical, finally ?ecured
an appropriation. They secured tho
services of a high-class advertising
man who was skilled in bank adver
tising. In ten months the bank in
creased its savings deposits to $6,000,
000, or, In other words, accomplished
under the force of advertising In ten
months (and that was during tho
panic threo years ago) what It had
taken them 18 years to do without ad
vertising. Today they havo savings
deposits exceeding $10,000,000.

unclean thing can be advertised In

Tho standard magazines are even in
advance of the dally papers, and are
eliminating from their pages every
advertisement of a questionable na
ture. Many of our best publications
today stand back of and guarantee the

"One publication that I know has
turned down in the past 18 months
approximately $200,000 worth of busi

or mine worth more In tho columns of
this publication? There aro no laws
in our statute books that require this
rejection on tho part of tho publisher,
but It is the high laws of moral eth
