Tbia game bird has been so ruthless ly destroyed for many years is now finding protection among^quite a num ber of farmers. Tbe farmer who takes care of his quail, through the fall and winter is doing tefam justice, but if he does not carefully keep tbe hunter off at all other times of the yoar be might as well let them go during the winter. We often see some kind-hearted (?) farmer who protects quail three hun dred and sixty days in tbe year, that his friend may go out amongst them and shoot right and left for the re maining five days Some farmers allow trie bunting of squirrels and rabbits, but bow many quails will these men kill on the sly while rabbit bunting? You must know yi ur man, and ^strictly forbid hunt ing bv anyone you are not absolutely sure is square. I have been told (bat the quail is the only bird that will eat the adult Coloiado potato beeile; lots of people say they will eat the boll weevil. If so or not so, lend a hand and help us to protect this little friend of ours. Do your part fiist, then urge others to do as you have done. I beard a 'hunter say not long ago that a farmer who forbids hunting on his land was cranky) but be didn't have any land). It hunters bad tres passed on htnr like they havo on me be would get', cranky, too. Three vears ago this fall there were three or four negroes shooting birds around a hig house that I bad on my^fartn that I stored mv baled hav and farm tools in, and that evening the house burned down , tbs fire caused by a match thrown down bv some of tbe smokers. Ida there I was with a total loss of about twelve bnndred dollars for my bouse, bay and tools And in a short time after that I missed a nice year ling, and in looking around I found him dead, on examining found he bad a big load of bird shot in one side (but of course no bird hunter shot him. he shot himself). Now I think it is time to get cranky. Post your lands and piotect your birds and not only your birds but your woodland, vour meadowlano, your outbuildings from fire and vour stock^from being shot by some careless fellow. If one doesn't have a right to his own acres and bis own quail, who does? Or if a feliow wants to bunt on your premises.^ought he be gentle man enough to ask the privilege? I respect a gentleman anywhere I meet him but I do not like an intruder. It hope the legislature will either put quail on the protected list ot make the open season begin December 15. J, B WILLIAMSON. a Holmes County Land Will Produce More Than the $250 Per of Illinois, Provided. Editor Lexington Advertiser: .Dear Sit—As per vour tequest I now try to give vou a report of mv experi ence in trying to faun here near the edge of tbe Delta, adjoining Tchula on east side. My nephew and I begun on the worst worn land on the place, from best I'm able to learn bad been robbed and butchered for eighty veais started our work in spring of 1908, using twelve inch turning plows tun ning them six to eight irches deep, part of the time using a disk plow running it eight to nine inches deep, and after thoroughly pulverizing with cutaway and drag harrows, planting corn, Kaffir corn and soy beans on the level precisely as we were accustomed to in Illiiois, though quite frequently advised by natives our style of farm ing positively would not do in this country, that we must plant on ridges if we wished to grow a crop. Now in order to run turning plows six to eight of in We ! inches deep in •'round plowed scarcely half that depth, any time previous, : we tun the double sction cutaway harrow first, which mellowed up the land ai d made the turning plows run! much lighter and do fur better work. Ia past four gessoes we lave not failed ! to grow ranch toe test corn on tbej place and find that where tenants p'a t cotton on land we tet ried the J year before, tti> co'ti n \ ield is much , larger and they claim the land is much easier worked One.pat. h of land in particular that bad been thrown out br the two last former owners we broke ud with a disk plow in 10OU nine inches deep. And last year the tenant farming it in cotton bad by far the he-t crop on this seven acres patch of auy of bis thirty-two te'S plant'd. I find that more teed stuff per acre could be grown bere than on Illinois #250 pet acre lend, provided the customs of tbe good people here would only permit it In this ti ne fully ninety per cent of the people (white and black) are determined their bogs, cattle, horses and mules shall run at large tbe year around to get their living as best tbev can on land their owners pav neither tax nor rent on, regardless cf state law. tick law, Divine law,or the laws of common sense and common decency. But right beie I must sav a few words in justice to tbe Jews. Ita lians und Syrians. Not one of whom so far to mv knowlege had an animal stealing its living on our plane at any time. While on Easter Sunday I Igot sixteen bead of cattle out our fields thatlbelonged to pu fessing Christians. Now how is it possible fot one to cany on an intelligent system cf di versified agriculture with any and all town stock (scrub animals included) at large tbe year around and country stock at large from November 1 until spring crons are planted? Whist, oats, berlev vetch, etc., should be growing in the winter, not only foi ihe mo ey tout ia in them out for an intelligent crop rotation and 'to pre vent soil wash, and because the ooll wetvil is now bere Not even an out break cf glanders here has stopped or even checked horses and mules run ning at large in this town except for the five that were killed and a few more that were quarantined tor about three weeks. Now as negro labor bat been found thermos: inefficient of our fifty nation alities working on the canal, why should we not arrange to get along with less of it bv using uptodate farm inaebinerv. moior plows, plenty of good posture with our own good stock to graze it (instead of scrub stock be longing to tbe nublic); and raise 'the price of cotton by planting less acre age and being able to hold tl till price suits? While in Oklahoma in fall of 190? I saw farmers bringing in their cotton to have it ginned and taking the bales home to bold for a bett«r price That year tbe gieen bug took all tbejtf wneat and oats but their other crop#! and live stock waa allright. Bo the* were enabled to hold their cot ten* Wculd not this way be the best, t*>, enhance cotton prices? And would it not be better to give the man who wants to a chance to quit cotton, and let the all cotton family have his ten ants? Ho can do this provided you are kiDd enough not to handicap him with vour diabolic stock nuisance The Oklahoma blanket Indians have learned it is to their interest and tbo interest of their country to obey stock laws. It is a pity some of them can not come bete for missionary work. Respectfully submitted. ED J BEALE Early Christmas Shopping.
