many of the farmers in White

prog ’arn V e controlling thought
was the converting of tire crop
grown it to actual money. There
j are many things that can be
i grown in abundance in White
County,but there are not sc
many things for which a suc
cessful market is assured. The
program suggested is as follows,
Crops in Season

Corn with Peas or
Beans in the Row
Hay — Lespecleza
oi- Peas
Cotton ‘
Throughout Entire Year
Poultry, Hogs and Dairy.
Our very recent experience
with both radishes and stiaw
berries is, or should be at least,
proof conclusive that we need a
number of “MONEY CROPS”
The radish yield and the radish
market this year was not by any
means what it has been in pre
years. However, some few
made nice money out of the ra
dish crop. Others made less
and some made nothing. The
fact, however, remains that ra
dishes grown in the right quan
tity over a period of several
years is as dependable a money
crop as strawberries or other
produce of similar kind. Ra
dishes should not be grown in
large quantities by each inciivid
al farmer; that is to say, the av
erage fanner should not have
more radishes than the force he
has at his command can take
care of without interfening with
other crops he may have plan
ned to grow during the season.
You will note that strawber
ries are listed second among the
crops in season. All of us know
what the strawberry has meant
to White County. With regard
to the amount of acreage each
farmer should have in strawber
ries the general opinion seems
to be that there is more danger
in getting too many acres of
strawberies than there is returns
and \>ill require far r&as -.ateof
and will interfer less with other
crops than many acres not well
taken care of will do. Too man
y acres Of bevies become a lia
bility in that it is expensive to
care for, it would interfere with
other crops and the grower is de
pendent largely on the help he
gets from others. It is a busi
ness prop.: it ion for each straw
berry gi'owe to figue out the
number of acres he can handle
j together with the other crops he
\pay be growing during the sea

of fully utilizing his time and
A sweet potato association has
recently been organized and will
build a curing house in Searcy.
This association will become af

iici» >»eeii u ieu out for several
years. There are some thirty
odd towns members of this ex
change at this time. It would
appear that this plan is going to
bring the sweet potato to the
front rank as a dependable mon
ey crop
White County is especially
adapted to the growing ofLes
pedeza hay. The analysis of
lespedeza hay shows that it is a
’wonderful hay. There is no
more need for White County
farmers to buy alfalfa hay ship
ped in from distant points or
timothy hay than it is for the
places where alfalfa, clover and
timothy are grown to ship in les
pedeza hay. The fanners of
White County can grow on a
comparatively small acreage as
much lespedeza hay as they need
money can buy. In addition to
the lespedeza being a good hay
crop there are other hay crops
and will have as good a hay as
such as peas, which on some land
possibly would be better than les
pedeza. The point is that White
County can grow its own hay
and can grow it in abundance.
We have some land in White
County that grows good corn.
Generally speaking our average
[corn crop does not compare with
the average com crop of other
places. However, we are bless
ed with another advantage not
1 enjoyed by other places. To il
lustrate: We can plant right in
jthe row. with the corn soy beans
! or some kind of a pea that will
i mature with an abundance of
| fruit.
j Cotton is and always will he
jc«a 3f the dependable crops for
this section of Arkansas. It is
[not a mistake for each farmer
to grow some cotton. The dan
ger lies more in the average far
mer attempting to grow too
much cotton. The kind of cotton
best suited is a problem for each
farmer to solve for himself.
The above program should be
54,000 People ...Were Killed By
Railroads in the Past
Ten Years.
During the last 10 years 84,000
people have been killed and in
jured in this country while tres
passing or walking on railroad
tracks and bridges and unlaw- j
fully riding on freight and pas-1
senger trains.
Nine thousand of this number
were children under 14 years of
age, twelve thousand were be
tween 14 and 21 years; nine
thousand were hcboes i nd
tramps, the remaining fifty-four
thousand were useful members
of society, including clerks, in
dustrial workers and profession
al people, the majority of whom j
lived in the communities in which
they met death or injury.
It is generally thought that j
train wrecks cause most of the!
casualties on railroads, but this,
is not the case. Fatalities to
trespassers, that is, persons who
have no business on railroads,
amount to seven times the num
ber of all classes of people killed
in train accidents.
This is a needless waste of!
human life and it will be stop-!
ped when the public spirited!
citizens of every community a- j
waken to the significance of this
killing and maiming of human
Indeed, great improvement |
has already been made- Be- j
ginning in 1903 and up to 1915 |
the number of trespassers killed j
and injured on the railroads of
the United States was about 10,
000 per year, but during the last
three years this has been re
duced to an average of about 5,
000 per year, notwithstanding
reinforced by the growing of ]
poultry. All of us • know what I
can be done in the way of grow- |
ing poultry and we have a posi
tive, dependable market at any i
1 and all times of the year.This
can become a positive source of
income to the family.
a large increase in population
and corresponding increase in
railroad business.
This splendid result is due to
Safety Education in the home,
newspapers, schools and indus
tries, and the efforts put forth,
by railroads through their Po
lice and Safety Departments to
keep all persons off the tracks
who have no business to l>e there.
To further prevent death and
injury from trespassing, teach
ers, preachers, editors, business
men and women and all other
public spirited citizens era urg
ed to use their influence in hav
ing these simple precautions
1. Do not walk on railroad
tracks or bridges. Use the streets
and highways.
2. Do not alow children to
play around railroad tracks, stat
ions, turntables, cranes, cars, or
other railroad property.
3. Do not crawl under or be
tween cars. Do not attempt
to board moving trains or cars.
4. Do not craw/ under or go
around crossing gates when they
are down. Stop until train pas
5. Before crossing tracks at
crossings STOP, LOOK AND
LISTEN to see if a train is com
ing, and after a train has passed
make sure no other trains are
approaching in either direction.
