In a few hours we will be uiQered
into a new yer.r, and following an
old custom we resolve to "turn over
a new leaf" or in other words we
make a pledge to ourselves that we
will strive to do more good deeds and
to live better lives in the future than
we have in the past. As a servant of
the people, and in a most hvnible man
ner we would like to offer a few
suggestions as New Year resolutions
for the Negroes of Nashville and
First, the new year begins on Sun
day. Let every one get up, put on
his best clothes and attend church
services somewhere, and make a lib
eral contribution as an offering to the
anise of Christianity.
Secondly, revive to keep up the
church-going habit for twelve months.
Thirdly, carry the children to some
Sunday-school every Sunday and re
frain there with them. We guaran
tee, that, every one who will adopt the
sug.afcstiong thus far outlined will say
at the end of the year 1911 that they
have made material progress and have
Increased their moral courage as well.
Again, it would be a grand thing if
every husband and father would re
solve to work every day possible In
the new year and stay away from
picnics and excursions.
Let every man, woman and child
not resolve to, but start a bank ac
count. Every ptstor of a church
should resolve not to advocate steam
boat and railroad excursions. The
business men should resolve to have
some kind of an organization that
will meet monthly.
Let us all resolve to do everything
that we resolve to do, and in the best
manner we .know how.
Since we know Nashville has a po
pulation of over 100,000 we can re
alize khat our responsibilities are great
er ynan they have been at any time
pa it. The only way to meet these re
sponsibilities is for every citizen to
' do his whole duty toward making the.
city better. Every one can do some
thing; the rich, the poor, the great,
the small. First of all we should
have a well-regulated and clean city.
The cottage should be kept clean
and tidy a3 well as that of the
palace, for the only way we can
have a clean and beautiful city is for
every one to take an equal interest in
trying to keep it so. We must clean
up the front yard and the back yard
as well. Servants must feel that it
is their duty to do their level best
at whatever they may be engaged;
and then these same people should
take the same pride in their homes,
however humble they may be.
Nashville has a great reputation as
an educational center, and her citizens
thould feel a pride m being residents
of such a popular city; but we must
not lose sight of the fact that the only
way for Nashville to maintain her
popularity is for every citizen to be
come a booster at home and abroad
They must also understand that the
word ' Booster" means you must hus
tle all the time, and that the results
of your hustling must be presented in
the most tidy form.
We wish to express our admiration
of the Christmas editions of many of
our contemporaries. The folowing
are deserving of special mention:
I he Florida Sentinel, Journal and
Guide, Richmond Planet, Atlanta In
uepent, New York Age and the In
dianapolis Freeman. , Many others
show signs of prosperity. The ap
pearance of these papers' suggests the
power they could exert if they were
organized, and had some way of un
derstanding each other. But so long
as thty go at it single-handed their
influence will remain in the weakened
cendition it is now.

Public sentiment has at last been
awakened to the conditions to be
found in the alleys of fvshington.
One of the leading civic bodies in
the city has taken this matter under
consideration and a thorough investi
gation is to be made of the alleys
and the facts gathered to be brought
to the attention of the proper con
gressional committee with the ulti
mate purpose of having all alleys
converted into minor streets.
This is a movement which especi
ally touches the colored necple of
Washington and one in which they
should be interested. A large ma
jority of those who live in the alleys
are colored people, and more can be
clone to help them by the colored peo
ple than by anyone else. The alley
problem, as it is called, is not so
much a problem of the alleys, as it
is a problem of clean, sanitary liv
ing. What our alley population
needs most of all is to be taught how
to live. The colored churches and.
organizations ran do more to help
these unfortunate class to learn how
to live than can any other agencies.
In the upward movement, therefore,
for the betterment of our alleys and
their population the colored people
here should allow themselves to be
left out. Washington American.

Problem of Farm Help.
The scarcity and, in some localities,
the entire absence of efficient farm la
bor, has greatly hindered the intro
duction and development, especially in
the South, of intensive methods of
cultivation, which are the only sure
means of bringing production up to
the high level attained in tountries
where farming lands are scarce.'
This has brought on a further dis
cussion of the treatment of farm la
borers and the inducement, or lack
of inducement, to life on the farm.
It Is generally acknowledged that the
average farmer, in his treatment of
farm hands, does not make the life
very attractive, and that the only so
lution of the problem lies in a radical
change in the method, especially in
so far as it concerns their home and
family life. 1 is suggested that the
married laborer should be given the
preference, and he should be pro
vided with a cottage of his own, with
a piece of land, one to five acres,
which he may cultivate for his own
Benefit, and of which he should be of
fered an opportunity to become the
owner. The idea could be extended
so as to include the settlement, on
similar tracts,,- of enough laborers,
with their families, to supply all the
needs of the farm in busy seasons.
The necessary investment in each cot
tage, so provided, would not be large,
and the possession of a little "home
of his own" by each laborer would go
far to substitute, at a lower cost, per
manent employment for the nomadism
which is tolay such an unwholesome
feature of ihe industrial situation on
the farm. , .
The idea yet exists among many
that lime is a fertilizer. If lime is
applied no commercial fertilizer need
be bought, think scores of farmers.
This is far from being the case. Lime
is needed in many soifls, but not to
take the place of the phosphoric acid
and potash of commercial fertilizers.
Its function is to sweeten the soil, to
make a sandy soil more compact and
a clay soil more open, and to liberate
plant food that exists in the soil.
Lime will usually stimulate the soil
to greater production for a few years,
but if no stable manure, commercial
fertilizer nor green manure to used the
yields will fall off until they wi bo
below what they were before lime was
Note the effect of lime one season
in an experiment at the Pennsylvania
Experiment Station: Manure 6 tons,
lime 2 tons, 5784 pounds of hay per
acre; manure 6 tons, 4,006 pounds;,
lime 2 tons, 1.88P, pounds; and no lime,
no manure, 1,010 pounds of hay per
acre. But the yields of all products
on the four different treatments for
25 years were respectively 18,016
pounds per acre, 17,383 pounds, 11,632
ponds, and 11,663 pounds per acre.
The manure was applied every two
years and the lime every four years.
A rotation of crops with good tillage
made the yields on the no fertilizer,
no manure plats better than than they
would have been under average con
ditions. It will be observed that the
yield for the entire period on the ma
nure plot was nearly as good as where
lime was added too. Manure had
practically the same effect as lime.
This is a point of common observa
tion; manure helps get clover, lime
hflps get clover, and in many in
stances the combination gives the
largest returns.
'Use lime and watch results from
year to year, but do not cease to use
