Valuable Jerusalem Artichoke.
It appears from Professor Stra.
kosch's figures that the most effelent
of all economic plants is the Jerusa
lem artichoke. This justly valued
vegetable produces on an acre of good
land about 7,127 pounds of starch and
other digestible substances. It takes
from the soil Incidentally $20 worth of
material. But the differenee between
consumption and production, in terms
of value, is $110.
Nations are supposed to be sover

even rural comnunities. The right of
self-preservation Is inherent and im
prescriptible, and nation, state, city
or countryside has the right of quaran

The correspondent of a Syracuse (N.

a cure. Ills cheerful assumption that
whatever does not kill, cures, is at
least refreshing.-Springfield (Mass.)

TO THE FARMERS
Of Laurens County
We have purchased this space in this paper for
two months solely for the purpose of giving out,
through the office of the County Demonstration Agent,
information bearing on the importance of Laurens
County's raising her own
FOOD FOR MAN
FEED FOR STO0CK
this year. One of the greatest assets and attractions
of farm life is that old doctrine of "Live at home and
board at the same place." If you were not material=
ly benefittced by 18 cents cotton and $60 seed this
winter, thini it over and see if it isn't because you are
having to buy many, many things you should have
raised at home.
Now rend this from a leading paper of the state
of February 24th:---"How prices here compare with
a year ago."

WE KNOW that "food and feed raised at home"~ is the first es
sential of good farming.
WE KNOW that the farmer who is not practising this can't stand
the strain of adverse circumstances, should they come.
WE BELIEVE that a county of farmers practising this would be
the best kind of a place to do a safe banking business.
WE BELIEVE that a full and frank discussion of why we should
do this and of how we can do it, (not as critics but as
friends) right at this time of year will put the county
on a better food and feed basis next fall and winter,
and leave cotton money for surplus.
Think over this, and read what will appear next
week. We are ready to help to the full limit of ke
