Number 2G Ghiokasar Will Mst Out of the Rut. Volume 2 0 Q Praise be the Board from Whence all Blessings Flow Messrs Walter Chandler and J. L. Jagoe of Okolona, Harry Bays of Woodland and 0. M. Harrill of Houlka, and Messrs. L. T. Fox and W. E. Scott, all prominent bankers and business men of their respective localities met in Houston Wednesday to see if a government expert Demon stration Agent could be secured for Chickasaw county. A large number of counties in the state have these men and you only have to read the papers to tell the difference in the progress of those with them and without them. News comes from all over the state of big crops of this and that, things grown on one acre where the old timers worked a dozen, and many other startling results where scientific farming made good. Poor old Chickasaw never gets a prize now nor even a nice mention like other counties who have agents at the call of any farmer in his district. Chickasaw must come across. This man generally gets $1,800 per year, for he is an EXPERT and is worth it. The government furnishes $G00 and the rest is up to the county. He goes from house to house, makes talks on farming at every crossroads or small store and has a ready answer for any question the farmers might ask him on any farm subject. He teaches them how to make dairying pay, hog raising, poultry, cat tle, mules, sheep, goats, horses, how to put up silos, how to do everything on the farm at the least expense. He farm better than he ever did. Of course there are farmers who wouldn't look at a pamphlet for five dollars. They sneer that book farmin' is bunkum and no good. Just a contrast now. The man who takes good farm papers that give in a simple way the make good experiences of other farmers and who reads themfrom"kiverto kiver,"also who reads the bulletins sent out by the stations, does BETTER farming than the man who "can't be told a thing 'about farmin.' Pick out yonr men and see if that statement is correct or not. See if the percentage favors the won't read, never did read and the "you can't tell me nuthin" farmer. In this land of enlightenment, where practical examples jump up all round us, it does seem that more men could make good on the farm. They do in other states and they read every line they can get about farm ing. The experience of other men is worth unlimited good to YOU and we certainly do want to see the farmers take hold of this man who is coming and make him tell them HOW TO FARM. The Board by a three to one vote made the proposi tion possible and we leel sure that in after years Chicka saw can take her place among those who WIN big prizes in every department of the farm. Whatever comes up along this line The Hummer sin- thing along. We do tot KNOW HOW TO-FARM but we certainly enjoy read- CONGRESSHAN T. U.

Mister Farmer, it is never too late to learn farming. how certain lands should produce certain crops and how other fellow has made good. In that way he gets practi cal training, A man like that is worth unlimited good to the people. Where these men have worked in other counties they have made the most progressive strides ever known to Mississippi agriculture. We get dozens of county papers and we can always tell whether the county of each publi cation has a demonstration man or not. If that county was so fortunate to get him we can see the results of his good work reflected in the pages of that particular paper. Where a county is doing things the papers just naturally tells about it, for it means much to the paper man and much more to its readers. Right here we want to say that the people should appreciate a county paper more tiian they do for the good they do is of untold value to the pro- a gress of the county. If a farmer sees in his paper where Bill Jones, who lives ten miles up the creek, has raised an extraordinary crop of a certain kind, he unthoughtedly stores away a desire to "beat" that Jones fellow next year. Rivalry among fanners results in bigger and better crops. The paper plants the seed, as it were, and the farmer reaps the benefit. That is why this paper wants the farmers to tell us of their big yields of certain crops so that we may print them, thereby letting the other man know what he is doing. This paper goes into many homes outside of Chick asaw and we wish it could be filled with BIG DOINGS of the farmers. The demonstration man also helps in another way. Outsiders will hear of his work, read his reports and write him concerning a home in the county. His recommenda tion is worth much if he gets co-operation among the peo ple at home. We need more capital coming into the coun tywe need more farmers who know how to raise more things than cotton and two nubbins, We need progressive men who will co-operate with their neighbors. This pulling against each other is pure cussedness why can't Chickasaw get out of the RUT? CO-OPERATION is the remedy please take a dose NOW. So these bankers, men who are interested in farming, decided to help pay part of the expenes if the Board would do their part. Instead of the county paying $1,200 to make up the $1,800, the bankers will pay $300 leaving county to pay $900. You can see just how interested they are in it. Right now the bankers and stock holders of Chickasaw pays two-thirds of the taxes and they are willing to pay this $300 more just to get a good nun to go about the county DOING GOOD. Any farmer can call him at any time. It is true that farmers receive government litera ture on farming, farm papers as sample copies and other good literature to benefit the reader if he will only read and practice its teachings. Literature of this kind is in tensely PRACTICAL and it will teach any man how to .et's get together and make farming hum and pay off old .-Id debts that are staggering you RIGHT NOW. done-WILL YOU CO-OPERATE?
