Sorghum as a silage crop Is one of the most valuable crops available to this section to those who are using silos. Anv of the lanre stalk, late maturing varieties, such as Honey Dew Drop, Japanese seeded Ribbon cane, and Texas seeded Ribbon cane make larger yield of silage per acre than corn. Sonrhum also stands extreme seasonal conditions better than corn. It has yet another advantage that- Is worth much to the man who expects to rent the machinery to put his silage away. It stands from two to three weeks at the mature stage without much deterioration while corn fires up and dries out. T,nd that will uroduce six tons 01 corn silage per acre should produce ten tons of sorghum silage. It compares fvnnWo vtAth rnm as a feed. It is a little lower In protein and fat content The comparative tests at the state A. & M. college this winter showed that sorghum silage put on a gain on the steers about as fast as the corn silage when fed pound for pound. . Everv silo owner In Noxubee county nhnnld nlnnt some sorsrhum this yeart for a silage crop. Plant enough to fill your silo and if you don't use it all, it can be shredded for stover. Peanuts Improve the soil; peanuts produce profitable hay crops. Are you skeptical? Ask any reliable man that has given the white spamsn peanut fair trial. . As a bar to poverty and an aid to prosperity, you should plan to plant plenty of peanuts for pork. M. K. tlALBTEAU. SORCHUM FOR SYRUP. Sorghum used for a syrup crop is not a big money maker. There are so many factors to be considered before the pro fit per acre can be estimated. There is some money though in tne crop u int0llitrnnt.lv handled and the manuiact- ure of the syrup be economical. The four factors that govern tne profit are: First, the yield per acre must be made large. Second, harvest ing tho i-ron pVipsdIv. Third, making the svniD at the mill as economically as possible, and fourth, a high grade syrup with uniformity must be put on the market. I shall not go into details about this rrnn. hut if anv one or anv community is Interested in planting sorghum for syrup. I shall rv"syad,,oMve quantity is. large enougn'toihake"large shipments. I have inquiries out now ror special prices on the seed in 100 bushel lots. About six to eight acres can De piantea with one bushel of seed, r mo out at once what acreage you will want to plant and be ready to send me the mon ey for the seed as soon as i announce the price per bushel.

Thn owners of these lands have in many instances devoted their energies to the raising of live stocK on tnese hicrh nriced lands and to the fattening of, this live stock by the feeding of the splendid crops of corn that tneir ianas ar ran diiw nroduce. The wealth and prosperity of the farmers of that region has resulted from tnese operation. There is no branch of the live stock In dustry that has been more profitable in the north than the raising ana latten ing of hogs. Thera is everv reason why the rais inrnd fattening of hogs should be wnrA nrnfitnhle here than in the north. Cheaper lands; more lavorame cumaw conditions; cheaper labor; greater varie- tv nf f Aprla. etc. It is true that, in their present condi tion thA avpmce farm lands here will not produce anything like the yields of ti.it tiiA farm lands of the north produce, but our lands will produce jeanuts and some corn. na penuw q.,H a little corn will Deal corn io ubbiu when it comes to a "show down" in the economical production of pork. What does the experiment station re ports show in regard to peanuts as com pared with corn for fattening hogB? At the Alabama experiment station it was found that an acre of good peanuts was equal in feeding value, to a little more than fifty-seven (57) bushels of corn. Everyone knows that oran.ary land' will produce a good crop of peanuts. The Askansas experiment station re- .ta thA fnllnwlno-: One acre of corn a oo n nf four bunarea mmy-nix (436) pounds, while one acre of peanute rrtwra o train of twelve hundred flfty- now nnnnds. A good crop of thA land of the north would not produce one-half of that amount of porK, ii.,i State Sunday School Convention Durant, March 16, 17, 18.
