GREATER : MISSISSIPPI
BY
H. E. BLAKESLEE.
Progress of Tiik Eradiiatlon in
Mississippi.
The greatest drawback to diversi
raising In Mississippi I«* being grad
ually removed by the extermination
of money appropriated for this work
and the control of other contagious
ilseasos of animals In the state has
of the cattle tick. The small amount
of
r bee extuindsd with exceptionally 1 *•
.good results, for which great credit c
,Is due the farmers in the counties in
Khich the work is being. doue, for
the intelligent co-operation and cor
dial support given the Live Stock
Sanitary Board in their efforts to
eradicate the ticks and establish a
more profitable system of agriculture,
In beginning the work last year it a
took some time for the farmers to
become familiar with the methods
of destroying ticks and to appreciate
the importance of the work, but a
campaign of education by holding
numerous meetings and distribut
ing suitable literature, and the mov
ing of the national quarantine line :
down to the state line between Alls
alsslppi and Tennessee in a few coun
ties soon awakened a deep interest
on the part of the farmer. The Mem
phis market has been closed to Mis
slsslppl cattle except to be sold lit
quarantine pens at a great disad- !
vantage.
The boards of supervisors of DeSo
so, Tate and Tunica counties have
shown their appreciation of the work
of tho Sanitary Board by appointing It
County Commissioners of Agricul
ture to, assist in exterminating the
ticks In those counties. As the re
suit of which there will be no diffi
culty in having these counties placed
above the quarantine line at the
end of this season. The work in Mar- j
shall nnd Benton counties is also
progressing favorably, though these
counties were more heavily Infesten
but with the proper co-operation
there will be no difficulty In getting
both counties free nt the end of the
Much credit Is due Dr. J. A. Kler
nan who supervises the work for the
federal department In this state. Ho
Is one of the most prominent authorl
ties in the country in t.his line of
work, and he has been untiring in
Uls efforts to assist the Sanitary j
Board in every posslblo way. The
local farmers union in every case
have given their cordial and earnest 1
support. It is a remarkable record, j
and highly creditable to the Intelli- j
gence of the people that of the many ;
thousands of farmers which the ofll- j
cers of the Sanitary Board have to
deal in the five counties where the
work is being carried on, that every ;
farmer with the exception of two in ;
Marshall county have appreciated the ;
Importance of the work and have glv
en the Sanitary Board active copera
tion In destroying the ticks. Numer
ous requests are constantly being re
ceived from farmers to have the
Board take up the work, but lack of
funds prevents this being done at
present, though In some counties th<'
large cattle owners have signified :
their willingness to raise by public !
subscription as the losses in the va- \
rious counties each year Is much
greater than the total cost of destroy- !
ing the ticks. I
AVithoutJncreasing the number ot ;
cattle now owned in the counties ot
Benton, Marshall, DeSoto and Tate
and Tunica, the eradication of the
cattle tick and placing them above
the quarantine line will increase tne
revenue of the farmers in these coun
ties about
The saving of this vast amount of
money will be accomplished by the j
expenditure of $5,000.00 on the part

The Hrowned-Out Cott.in Land.
«
The question, as to the best dispo
sition to he made of the many acres ;
of drowned-out cotton land, is a
pressing one, anl farmers have little |
time left in which to find an answer,
The present deplorable condition
of tho crops over a large area of the
state is not altogether a result of
bad weather, as many seem to think,
but is to a large extent, the lnevlla
ble result of the unprepared condl
tlon of the soil when the crops were
planted. This season and the cocdi
tion of crops should teach a lesson
that will never be forgotten, and
that Is that, it is money, time and

New Y*ork.—One of the most dras
tic upheavals In Now Y'ork city's po- :
lice history occurred when Mayor
McClellan summarily removed Com
missioner Theodore A. Bingham for
insubordination after tho latter s re
fusal to comoly with certain révolu

The mayor's order came at tbe coc- \
energy well spent to^îoro'ighly pr®. !
pare the land before plaining. The \
previous preparation of the soil will j
this year, in many case*, mean the :
difference between a fair success and
and a failure. We have recently I
seen fields of both cotton and corn
practically free of grass where the
crops looked healthy and vigorous j
with the promise of a fair yield. In
the same section and planted soils
of like character, we find many acres
of cotton and corn dwarfed In sire,
yellow In color, some of the cotton
still dying.'and much of the corn. If
worked out, will produce little but
fodder. These lands are so grassy
they look more like a good pasture
than a cotton field. The explanation

the other case the
touched In the fall, and In the spring
rush to plant early, the land was
half-prepared, in many caaes.
Rule one-horse plow,
the rain we have had this land is still
rough and cloddy, and would not
have produced over a halt crop had
weather conditions been favorable,
How long will we of the south con
tlnue this slip-shod method of farm
Ing, and charge all the failures to
bad luck and bad weather? One of
the great obstacles in the way of suc
cessful farming is the failure to plan
ahead. Note the wild scramble each
spring for good seed. We did not
think last fall at gathering time,
when it would have been so easy to
have selected good seed of known
land was not
rith
After all
spring,
Now what are we going to do with
this drowned out cotton land? Will
It be economical to pay wages to
clean out the little sickly cotton on
half prepared land or to work out
that dwarfed, yellow corn that will
make nothing much but fodder?
Would it not pay better to break
this land with a two-horse plow and
turn under and kill the grass, Uar
purity, that we would need them this
row well and plant cow-peas In rows
of three feet apart, cultivate the
peas about twice with a fine tooth
cultivator or side harrow and gather
from ten to fifteen bushels of peas
per acre which will be worth next
spring from $1.50 to $2.00 per hush
el, and at the same time the vines
and roots will put into tho soil for
next year's crop, from $8.00 to $10
worth of plant food per acre? To.
plant, cultivate and harvest the pitas
crop will cost ve'ry little. One bush
el of peas, if a good planter is used,
will plant about four acres. On the
best of this drowned out land, early
maturing varieties of corn may be
planted. Mexican. June or Learning
Yellow will mature If planted now
on well prepared land and worked
rapidly. Soy beans may be planted,
Just as cow-peas are, ns late ns the
middle of July. This plant when
planted thick makes an excellent hay
and if planted in rows and worked
once or twice will yield from fifteen
to 25 bushels of beans per acre. It
these beans are ground and mixed
with corn or corn chops you have a
splendid feed for all classes of live
stock. Sorghum can be planted as
late as July 15th. The early amber
or Orange sown thick makes a large
yield of good hay. Peanuts, Irish
and swoc* potatoes may be planted
a s late as July 16th.
I think it would be a good plan
to put moat of this land In cow-peas,
This crop is a profitable one either
for hay or seed, and will supply the
soil with the two most needed "ile
mjnts, nitrogen and organic matter.
