To !Lj get a source of income at this season [U means much to every man who fol- p lows the plow. Many sections have fg successfully met this problem but so 2 far our county has not. This year we have the greatest fij opportunity that was ever offered us 2 along this line. The plan is practical ^ and within the reach of anyone who [y wishes to try it. Listen to its sim- 5 plicity. 5 We have over 1500 bushels of di- P sease—free sweet potatoes bedded in 2 this county, and when we say that b these slips are free from disease we P know what we * are talking about. Why not a hundred men plant one 2 acre each of these early slips, say Ej the first of May. This will give us p a hundred acres of Nancv Hall pota- 2 toes that will be ready to market in P August. I have never known sweet p potatoes to sell for less than $1.00 2 per bushel in the month of August. ^ I am fully convinced that sweet po- [U tatoes at 50c per bushel at harvest Sg time is a better monev crop for this b countv than Cotton at 20c per pound, 'l Think and figure a little for yourself = and believe you will agree with me. — Now men, think it over quickly and make up your decision. There jEj will be between four and five mil- g lion slips for sale in this county this p year and the Farm Bureau is go in" 3 to make every possible effort to ^ place every slip that is certified b'- P the State Plant Board and guaran- £jj teed to be free from Black Rot. Of 3 course we don’t expect to sell all P these slips in Lafayette county, in jj| fact don’t think we will have any 3 trouble in selling all of them if we P do not sell a one in this county. But what I would like to see is for our 2 own people to take up this first pull- gj ing and let the other people have [0; the balance. I feel sure that we cd will have sufficient slips in the Lj] -ountv to paint one nunureu acres [ui by May 1ft and let’s put them out. Pick out an acre of good sweet po tato land, put it in shape and place your order for slips. We are adver ting in many papers and if you vant these slips you will have to ?eat the other fellows to them. Think ibout it and talk about it but don’t keep on talking and thniking about t until all of tire first slips are sold, ren or fifteen cars of sweet pota toes sold in August would make a lundred men feel like they were sell ng cotton. We want everybody who is inter red in this CASH MONEY CROP POR AUGUST to meet us at the ffourt House at Oxford. Saturday, 12:30. Apnl 22.

Potato 1 9 2 I p 3 3 - 3 c._ l 7 (LrS | nP-ii | Last year I returned to Lafayette County to engage in 3 farming and soon became convinced of the possibilities of the g | Sweet potato crop for this section. I obtained some vine grown l seed through our County Agent and thoroughly dipped them ac- p j cording to instructions. With slips and vines together I’ve set g=‘ 3 about 22 acres. From seven acres of our earliest potatoes we har- || jj vested over fourteen hundred bushels. The later planting did not g 3 do so well. Total yield was a little over 2500 bushels. These pota- pj jj toes were cured in a curing house built on plans furnished by the |g 3 department of Agriculture. The plan must be a good one as our || 0 loss from rot, cuts and other sources was less than one per cent. §| 3 We have bedded out 1200 bushels of these potatoes and Ig 1 they were all carefully and most thoroughly inspected by a repre- || jj sentative of the State Plant Board. The inspector also supervised || | the dipping and when the big job was finished he was good igj | enough to say that we had the finest potato bed he had ever seen. S We mention the above facts to show that we have spared || 1 no pains or expense in order that we might produce potato slips ^3 1 that are free from BLACK ROT and STEM ROT and w'e feel no j® | hesitancy now in saying that our slips will -be absolutely FREE || I from these diseases. || I After the past year’s experience, we have more confidence p I than ever in the sweet potato industry for this County and this || I year we expect to plant between fifty and one hundred acres. We || 1 expect to have about three million slips for sale and will offer §1 | them at $2.50 per thousand, or $2.25 in lots of 10,000. If you should || 1 desire any of our slips please leave your order with the Farm Bu- || 1 reau as all our slips will be handled through this channel. We |§ 3 think the Farm Bureau is the most beneficial institution ever es- |i 1 tablished for the benefit of the farmers and we are glad for two | | per cent of our out-put to go to the support of this institution. g I Hopkins and Hutchinson 1 I OXFORD,MISS. * I 1 Vv' -V ' ya .
