In these times when the presence
of the boll weevil makes the grow

almost impossible, it is well for far

of that pest. There may be some
thing of truth in the following which

ABERDEEN, MISS IS SIPPI.
Dear Sir :
The season is approaching when your mind will turn to this
question "How much cotton shall I plant per mule?" Two ideas
will come in your mind: ,
First If I over plant in cotton, I will reduce the price to
less than it will cost to produce, and if the boll weevil destroys
my crop, lama failure and cannot pay my honest debts. If I use
an over supply of fertiliser, it will increase the cotton crop
to where it will force the price down.
As we see the situation for the farmer in this and surround
ing country, he. should not plant more than six acres per mule

We have succeeded in making arrangements with the manufac

factory will not permit us to sell on fall terms only to land
owners, and not then if crop is under mortgage.
You must plant early, fertilise well, work quick and often,
keeping grass and weeds out, working to a level not forget
