DO WOT STOP FERTILIZING.
There was one thing adopted by
the New Orleans cotton convention
which is contrary to good farming
and, therefore, regrettable ; that is
the resolution urging a decrease in
the use of fertilizers. Better advo
cate an increase in the use of fertil
izers and a decrease of 50 per cent,
in acreage. The policy of taking
from the soil annually without giv
ing anything in return has com
pelled the producer to cultivate
three times what he would have to
cultivate had he used fertilizers.
Il is just as necessary for the farm
er to feed his soil as it is to feed his
mule. Suppose the convention had
advocated a reduction of feed for
mules; it would have been just as
Fertilize all you can, is what the
Reveille shall always advocate.
"LIVIHG AT HOME."
When the tendency of the farm
ers of any section is toward im
proved grades of live stock, poultry,
etc., there can be no doubt that in
a few years those farmers will be
In Claiborne county now it is al
most out of the question to sell a
fanner any but first-class stock, and
the better grades of poultry are in
demand. There is a general tenden
cy, too, to "live at home," which
strongly indicates that whether the
price of cotton is high or low,
the producer will not be materially,
affected We have reached the
stage at least where cotton does not
occupy the entire time and thought
of the farmers of this section. This
is a change for which we should be
very thankful. Raising cotton is
profitable to the small farmer only
when it is raised as a surplus crop.
Corn, the small patches, hogs and
poultry are the main things to be

Hon. J. McC. Martin addressed
the convention and explained to the

Shot While Trying to Escape.
. Last Thursday Justice Willis of
the second district attempted to
arrest Tom Coleman, alias John
Williams, colored, who is wanted
in East Carroll parish, La., on a
charge of assault with intent to
kill. While in the the act of hand
cuffing his prisoner, the negro ran,
and Mr. Willis fired at him with a
a shot gun, striking him in the
leg. Coleman was brought to Port
Gibson and lodged in jail. His
wound is painful, but not serious.
