Representative Rankin of Mississippi ami Linehur ger of California, locked horns again oyer the number of enlisted men contributed by their respective states to the World War. Mr. Rankin, "In reply to the gen tleman from California, I desire to say that when I stated that I might otfset his "(,0U0 ex-service men in California who he says, are I in favor of the largest personnel for the navy with something like 100,000 from Mississippi who are in favor of economy in naval and military expenditures, 1 did not state that all those men from Mississippi were members of the American Legion. An ex-service man has the same right and the same voice in public olTairs, whether he is a member of the American Legion or not. He tells you that Mississippi furnished about 08,000 men difring the war and that therefore my figures were exasperated, but he overlooked the fact that thousands of ex-service men have moved to Mississippi since the war closed. "We had two training camps in that state, Camp Shelby, at Hat tiesburg, and Payne Field at West Point, and when those boys from other sections of the country came there and saw what a wonderful country we have and what great prospects are there,, they Mocked back to Mississippi after the war by the thousands. "And if my distinguished friend from California had the privilege, the pleasure and the honor of train ing in Mississippi for the gallant services which he rendered overseas, especially if he had been a single man, no doubt today instead of wast ing his time trying to convince this House of the proposition for which he stands, or of tantalizing himself with the prospects of going to the- senate, he would be down there in Mississippi cultivating his cotton fields or mowing his alfalfa and singing, "Praise God From Whom all Blessings Flow.' County Agent Notes .J REPORT OIL IS BROUGHT IN NEAR CHARLESTON Charleston, Miss., April 21. Re ports that oil has been struck in the oil well recently started at Teasdale, near here, caused much, excitement in this vicinity Thursday. O. R. R. Pace, superintendent in charge, paid that oil had been struck, hut he did not know how much. Mr. Pace said that oil hearing sands had been en countered at an approximate depth of 5G0 feet. A rock which he thinks was the cap rock, was met at 450 feet, then came a strata of brown shale and then, according to Mr. Pace, the drill entered oil. Try The Progressive Farmer t'KI.MSON O.OVKU IN MOXKOK COUNTY While over in the Amory and Smithville territory Monday I visit ed the farms of Mr. Jim Allen and Kelly Davis, and on both farms crimson clover was being plowed under that was over knee high and as thick as could urow. Probably 2" or i0 acres of clover was growing on each farm, and 1 will say that if anybody can find a crop that looks better than a field of crimson clover in full bloom, I would like to see it. Mr. Allen and Mr. Davis have been growing this clover for several years now, so of course have rich land and every year their farms are becoming richer and richer. The clover that is being turned under on th.se farms will add as much fertilizer to the land as could be gotten from fifteen or more sacks of cotton seed meal. I heard Mr. Geo, R. James make this statement, and it is a fact worth remembering: As the soil is so are the people. If the soil is rich we will have wealthy people, and if the soil is poor we will have poor peo ple. It tines not matter how intel ligent a farmer may be or how hard he works or saves, he has no chance of making anything except a hard living on poor soil. SOMK CKfft'S TO PLANT NOW. Every farmer in the county has plenty of time to get seed and plant a crop of velvet veans, soy beans or peas to furnish feed and some fer tile land to plant another year. There are thousands of acres of loam land in this county that should be planted in velvet beans to furnish some feed for the cattle in the win ter time, but there has not been enough of these beans bought in Monroe county to plant over 600 acres. Most farmers gay-that they will not plant velvet beans because they cover the corn, but I think that when corn will not make over 15 bushels per acre and often less than 15 bushels, it should be covered with something to hide the poor soil. A peck of soy beans or velvet beans cost very little; this amount is sufficient to plant with an acre of corn, so why not get a few pecks to grow with your corn and produce twice as much feed on every acre of land.
