lu the South's Agricultural Transi
tion-South Must Feed Itself.
(l*y V. P. Latham.)
That ilioro is now taking place a
change in the South in its cropping
.system, farm management, and tho
character and kind of products pro
duced is evident to thoso who are
studying tho trend of tho times.
As a people we aro slowly freeing
ourselves from the "all cotton" pro
gram, und are embracing a saner
system that embodies tho require
ments of producing moro und moro
of the home supplies on tho farm
where consumed.
This chango is not tho result of a
sudden desire of the South at largo
to abandon Its delusive idol, but ra
ther by the force of a changed con
The march of tho boll weevil and
the excessive cost of moving supplies
from tho Western farm to that of the
cotton planter is forcing the wide
awake farmers to think ns they nev
er thought before, and they aro dis
covering that if the South is to pros
per it must llrst feed itself.
In this transition (for such it is
to bo) tho soja bean is ono of tlie
most valuablo agents known to thc
agriculture of the South, and if given
half the attention that is now given
cotton lt will becomo a financial life
net that will save tho home of the.
present c e-crop farmer when Iiis
unsound structure tumbles, as lt
I know of no plant that will work
into our farm system with as little
friction as beans can be made to do,
nor do I know another single plant
that embodies as many outstanding
advantages for the South/rn farmer
as it does, with tho one possible ex
ception of corn.
There is not a farm in tho South
that grows cotton, corn, small grain
01 livestock that this plant should
not bo grown on.
On tho cotton farm it will furnish
forage that will keep the mules
sleek, lt will make a feed that will
rank with alfalfa in the production
of milk, cream and butter that you
owe your family.
On the small grain farm beans
will utilize the land from harvest
time until frost, tho crop to bo used
in any of above methods, or may be
turned back to the soil, in which
event it will carry with lt a valuable
amount of nitrogen that hns^ been
extracted from tho inexhaustable at
mospheric supply and combined with
a vegetable base in the best form to
put vigor in your worn acres.
On the corn farm they lit admira
bas and utilize the soil from August
(when corn ceases its draft) until
frost, producing an extra crop with
little cost except the seeding that .
mcy lie used in a multiple of ways,'
grazing and fertilization tho most j
profita ble.
"Where hogs are a part of the pro
gram, as they should be on every !
well-regulated farm, you have a com- '
lunation that will cut deeper into!
tho ham and bacon bill than any I '
have ever studied.
The live farmer who really goes
after results will soon observe that
tho acres planted to soy beans will
result In the production of a greater
amount of milk, cream, butter, ba
con and feed for live stock than can
be bought with the proceeds from a
Uko acreage in cotton, with an ex
pense; loss than half the former.
When the habit of homo produc
tion 1 as by the help ot heans been
established, a new ray of hope will
exist, and lt will Instil a certain in
dependence that will soon become
tho pride of tho farm.
The farmer who will consent to
cut his cotton or tobacco acreage
this year at least one acre to the
mulo and plant to soy beans, utiliz
ing the crop beforo October 1st, will
havo the opportunity of immediately
making perfoct preparation with lit
tle cost for that permanent pastur
age that ho has been- needing and
droading all of these years.
Ihe above conclusions aro the re
sult of some twenty years actual
growing of this crop; my observa
tions aro based on experience, and
my hope is that tho South will rec
ognize tho great value of this plant
and lncroaso its uso a thousand-fold,
thereby allowing nature to replenish
tho millions of mistreated acres in
tho cotton bolt with nitrogen from
tho inoxhaustablo supply of tho air,
and do it now.

Anniversary of Eventful Day.
(Seneca Cor. Anderson Mall.)
Fifty-seven years ago to-day (May j
1) was an eventful day In Anderson.
Everything was as near normal as
possible so soon after tho collapse
cf the Southern Confederacy. The
paroled soldiers of Leo's Army had
just returned to their homes and
had not begun to get adjusted to
their environments. Some of the
young people were having a May
day picnic-no cloud, no warning of
impending danger-when there burst
upon tho community like a tornado
that gang of renegades and outlaws,
Brown's Raiders, breaking into
houses, stealing and destroying ev
erything and anything-horses, sil
ver, jewelry, money-without stint.
Old men wore hung until almost dead
to try to force them to tell 'whore
their valuables wero hidden. It was
an awful time. Is thoro any ono in
Anderson, now who can recall the
experience of that day?
