Rankin Defends the State.
Washington, April lr During
the discussion today in the Hou-e
of tli navy personnel. 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
"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.'

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
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
