Now is the time to start to plant your fall garden, if you expect to ^ keep the club market going this fall < and winter it is quite necessary that 1 you begin now to get ready for it. i We need a good mc-rket in our oun ty so let us all work together for this ' end. We cannot have this market or 1 expect to get any where unless we : cooperate together in this work and J try to gain some notice of progres- 1 siveness in our county. How can we 5 make a start toward this end? By 1 starting now to produce our own veg-j^ -J.-U1? 3 ? ;a_ ? I giauied cina xx uits m uur uwii cuuuij instead of having to spend our mon- 1 sy in other states to get the things 1 that we can raise here in this county. ? This can be done by a little thought ^ md work and I feel that it is to the 2 interest of the people of Abbeville 1 ;o keep all the money they can in this c lounty. ? If the farmers and farm women * ivill try to raise the produce that the c nerchant has Jo buy from other stat- t ?s I feel sure they had rather give pou a fair price for it than to have ^ t shipped in. ^ Do give this a serious thought and segin now to try and build up a ^ standard market and to supply the lemand. We can do this by coopera- ^ ;ion. ^ We will be glad for everybody t| :ome to the market and see for them- a lelves what we hope to accomplish in ;he future.
