Farms are being made ready for
the planting of the 1913 crop. In
twelve months time things have great
ly changed. The farmers here are giv
ing more attention to the planting of
potatoes, molasses cane, grain, etc.,
and when they plant this spring cot
ton will be left In the background.
Many were the unfortunate citizens,
here, who staked their absolute de
pendence In cotton In 1912. and many
experienced the "fall". The descent
might have been very pleasant to
some, but It had such a landing, that
those that "took the ride" care not
to take It again. That's why the farm
ers are turning their attention to the
raising of pork, the more extensive
production of corn, increased acre
age of molasses cane, and sweet po
tatoes, and decreased cotton acreage.
When the year 1913 closes, if the)
Hillside farmers have followed these
methods, there will be found here a
more prosperous people than was
ever known here before.
