Sweet Clover vs. Tobacco.
Charlie and Garnett Hall, two
hustling young sons of Larkin
Hall, who resides east id" town,
made a splendid record this sea
son in gathering sweet clover
seed. They gathered !f:JS.7(l worth
of seed in seven hours, and in ten
days gathered and sold $2H0
worth. They uvoraged $11.50
each per day, which is pretty
good wages for two boys". This
beats raising 7 cent tobacco to a
frazzlo. There are thousands of
ways of making money on the
farm without raising so much to
bacco, but it is hard to make the
people believe it. There are many
crops, of tobacco in I'endlcton
county that will not bring $25)0
after they are stripped and ready
for the market, und it takes ten
days to strip these crops. Ful-
mouth Outlrtcil?.
To haul one ton, therefore, took
twelve days, which, reckoned at
three dollars a day for man und
team, was an expense of thirty-
A bond issue was
wire was improved so that the
same team can haul a ton to the
load und make the round trip in
two dayr, at a cost of six dollars.
In Madison County, Tennessee,
before the roads were improved
a bale of cotton was a load for a
team. Now the same team can
haul ten bales to the load in less
time. Figure it out.
Second, good roads improve
farm values. A farther in Lee
County, Virginia, owned a tract
of one hundred acres which he
offered for $1,800. In 100S the
road past his farm was improved,
and thoimh he fought the im
provement, he has since refused
$3,000 for this place. On this
sjyiie .roaiLA tract increased from
fl,000 to $9,000 in value after the
improvement of the highway.
Third, road improvement means
better access to school und better
schools. It means the facilitation
of the rural mail service, which
is now hampered in many pluces
