The chief reason why the land
owner js land-poor is because the
South is cottonrpoor. JNot that
the Soqth raises too much cotton,
but because it dops not raise enough
of other things. It should raise as
much cotton as it dops, biit it
should rajse a proportionate amount
of stock, provisions, cereals and
It
does not do this be
cause its labor and tillage are de- ,
fective. It raises what it does by '
reason of its very productive soil,
and in spite of the defects of labor 1
and tillage. To improve the labor '
it must be under good control, and j
to do that it must be well and
promptly paid, and that requires
the best instead of the worst tillage j
of the soil. If QU I y half the acrqasre i
If only half the acrpage i
now planted in cotton was made to ;
produce double the amount to the
acre that is produced, there would
be just as much cotton produced.
In addition to this, it would be
much more easily gathered, for all
planters know that cotton can be
gathered a third faster on fine thick
cotton than on short crop cotton.
Half the acreage is just twice as eas
ily gathered and cultivated and that
would allow plenty of time for the
raising of cereals, grasses, horses,
mules, hogs, and so forth. The
demand for labor would be lessened
and that would enable the farmer
to get the best and enforce con
tracts. The problem is simply to
thoroughly cultivate less land in
cotton instead of attempting to
scratch as much as is now done.
Take any land that lies well and
till it as it would be tilled in the
North or Europe, aud the land
owner »ill soon be rich and inde
pendeut instead of poor and etw
ually trying to t'make arrange
ments" as is now the case. The
secret is to make big crops of cot
ton on a small surface. This can
be (tone by manuring, rotation of
props, and deep and thorough
plowing in the preparation of tbe
land. }Vhen this is done success
j fully, the cotton crop will be al
most entirely a surplus and univer
sal prosperity will result.—[Vicks
