Drakh Half Your Living Without Money Cost A right or wrong start in 1917 will make or break most farmers in the South. We are all facing a crisis. This war in Europe puts things in such uncertainty that no man can foresee the future with any degree of clearness. • The sure and certain increase in cotton acreage means lower cotton prices next fall. Cost of all food and grain products is high, so high that no one can afford to buy and expect to pay out with cotton. It's a time above all others to play safe; to produce all possible food, grain and forage supplies on your own acres; to cut dowq^the store bill. A good piece of garden ground, rightly planted, rightly tended and kept planted the year round, can be made to pay half your living. It will save you more money than you made on the best five acres of cotton you ever grew!
