GOOD HHALTH BASED ON WHOLESOME ROOD HABITS Good food habits include more than leisurely eating, cleanliness and order in everything that has to do with food and meals. Equally im portant are u liking for all kinds of wholesome foods, even if they have not always been used in the home or neighborhood, and eating reasonable amounts, without being greedy or overdainty Every effort should be made to train children in such good food habits, urges the United States Department cf Agriculture. If older people have not learned them, they, too, should try to do so, for such things are important not only to health but also to economy. To re fuse t . eat some wholesome dish abiip'y because it is new may prevent the use of some very desirable and economical food. To feel that there is any - irtue in providing more food than is needed shows poor taste as well as economy. The health and appearance of the family make a go d test of the whole someness of the diet. If the members are strong, weil developed for their ages, free from ailments, and full of t energy and ambition, it may safely j be said their food agrees with them. I But if they are listless and ailing, or ; not as well developed either physical ly or mentally as they should be, and ! if a competent physician finds that there is no special disease to account for these bad symptoms, a mother may well ask herself if the food is right, and if not, now she can make t so. In such cases she might, for in stance, apply for information on food and diet to her county leader in agriculture and home economics and to the home economics department of 1 her State agricultural college. WHAT THE COUNTY AGENT DOES The duty of the farm and home demonstration agent is not to show each farmer how to run his farm or the home or how to bring up the children but it is to organize the various agricultural forces of the county in such a way as to obtain co-operation for more profit and more satisfying rural life. There is little need to argue the value of the demonstration agent. His usefulness and his accomplish ments speak for themselves. The. woman home demonstration agent has done just as fine a work and as her part in the building of a better farm life, and in improving the farm home. The boys’ and girls’ clubs are starting many a hoy and girl in the right direction, and their teach ings are valuable because they take the mind and spirit at a formative period and guide it in the direction of a better agriculture. The exten sion movement is bringing science to the farm, is making the discoveries of our colleges and the practices of our best farmers available to the tiller of the soil. Just as an illustration of the worth of the county agent the difference noted in Rankin County, Mississippi, between one year when there was no ounty agent, and the next year when there was, has been rather commented upon in that state, and we give it here as a very striking ex ample of what can be accomplished by an agent in 12 months. Rankin now has a wide awake agent who be lieves in co-operative shipping, ac cording to an official report from that state. This report says: ‘‘This year our county agent or ganized a co-operative club and looked after the marketing of our produce. Also he gave us informa tion as to treating seed and the proper fertilizer to use. This year our gent marketed 22 car loads of potatoes, co-operatively, for us, and secu ed top market prices. Some of the farmers in this community made over *100 per acre. This increase of, 0 '• cars is due to the efforts *f the cA gent as we had never been ab^^^^^jto.market our produce at buSfls of seed wheat right here in thi* community thriugh our agent to \ planted this fall. The expen enccBof Rankin County with its ago* can be duplicated in many counties.”—Virginia Extension News COUNTY SUPT. LAWSHE MAKES STATEMENT To The Public: )n the 5th day of January I was gr. en my commission as county superintendent of Yalobusha County, i' ler the able leadership of my p decessor progress has been made in our schools but there is yet a g at work ahead. 1 am highly pleased with the outlook for the mesent administration. There are many things for which we must wc,rk if we give the boys and m-Is of the country the square deal they deserve. Three of these de cree special mention here: (1) better school houses, (2) longer terms, and (3) better paid teachers. These we can have, and these we will have if the parents and tax payers will only stand together for them. In the election of last November in amendment was added to our Hate constitution which, if given proper support by the legislature, will bring aid to our county. The ■Hate department of education is Handing pat in its endeavor to eejua - iv i■ the rural school system of the state. 1 sincerely trust that our 1) ard of supervisors, hoard of trus tees, and the public in general will co-operate with me in securing our share of any aid that might be of fered. To the teachers of the county l \ w -h to offer a word of commenda tion for the loyal and faithful work v u aro doing. Yours is ft noble W ,rk and one for which you should be well paid. It is your duty to unite and join with me in an effort to raise the standard of teaching m the county. Let’s use more force and hurl more bricks of education | against the wails of ignorance than i we have ever done before. I must also add a word of enuorse ment for our county agents. There is little need to argue the value of these people. Their influence and their accomplishments speak for themselves. The boys’ and girls clubs are starting many a boy and girl in the right direction, and their teachings are valuable because they take the mind and spirit at a forma tive period and guide it in the direc tion of a better agriculture. The ex tension movement is bringing science to the farm, is making the discover ies of our colleges and the practices of our best farmers available to the tiller of the soil. There i» no end to the value of the press to the educational, agricultural commercial and moral development of the country. Our county papers ale to be commended for the spirit ir which they give this page. I ask tl e public to watch these columns ir the future for any information I way have to put before the people. C.

Alley, District Agent yesterday and she said she wanted me to stress '•aiming for market this year more than any other phase of work. There is great demand for jellies, preserves, pickle and ketchup, the former to he put in tin cans and the iatter in glass containers. Tomatoes sold this year for $1.76 to $2.00 p^r dozen, beans $2.00, berries $2.40 peaches $3.25 and jelly at twenty five cents per glass. I have sold up to date every can for sale in the county except ten dozen tomatoes As you know, some of the girls are paying their way to school with the money they made by canning.

UET YOUR LESPEDEZA IN MARKETABLE SHAPE BEFORE BRINGING THEM TO MARKET Seed Is Moving Freely. We are shipping lespedeza seed as jrder:; received. Several farmers iave brought seed in to ship that we lad to turn down because they were not properly cleaned. Now, before ircu can get your seed on market you mist get them in good shape. You ,vii: have to run seed through cieaner it least twice or maybe three times. Seed should be free of dirt, and all foreign material. I am sending out samples and of course if seed shipped io not come up to sample we will iave trouble. It is my intention to try and ship seed just a little better than sample. ,. Any person having seed to se.l, write me number of bushels and I ,vill place them for you. Iliad rather y ou would store them in your respec tive town, and notify me and then when 1 get order I can ship seed with out delay. As I have stated to you befoie it we would hold seed and not quote them for less than $7 per bushel, we ivould get it, but some of the farmers ire anxious to sell therefore l have quoted soed at $b.50 per bushe*. * believe that seed will move fieely at this price. We have gotten out one nrder at $6 and have several to get jut at $6.50. Lespedeza is a wonderful crop and [ wish that every farmer in Yalo busha County would plant some les pedeza. Lespedeza will make you from $20 to $50 per acre, and is one of the best soil improvers that we have. Any farmers in County that want to purchase seed write me and 1 will -get them for you. A. G. HAMILTON, County Agt. SORGHUM CHECKS ARE BEING MAILED We have received returns on car of sorghum shipped from Coffee ville before Christmas. This car was shipped to Chicago and was in trans it several days. We had only half car and therefore had to load with County Agent, Lafayette County. We received $1.12 per gallon for num ber one and five cents less for num ber two but will have to pay freight from Oxford to Cotteeviiie, therefoyi mo’asses will net you about $1.07. You will get statement with checks. A. G. HAMILTON. County Agt. One of the wonders of the British Dairy Association show, according to the London Daily News, was a Danish appliance for keeping milk fresh for two years or more. No piUervatives are used. The apparatus is known as a “homogenizer,” and the preserving force is a pressure of 2,000 pounds to the square inch. v, MARKET REPORT „ 0 FUTURE HOG MARKET MORE ENCOURAGH I cm in rc-eipt of letter from Com. Firm, St. Louis, stating tk they are of the opinion that he will sell for $16.50 by Feb. and spring will be bringing $18 per ci Of crurse no one knows just wh the market will do, but I feel that tj men that are in direct touch with t market are better posted than aii one else. If you have a bunch h oates, if possible carry them eei spring. If your neighbor h shoates that he is going to put on ti market buy them, if you are in position to care for them, and ear them until spring. There is a quan ty of damaged corn that can be f< to bogs. At this writing the extreme top $14.70 per cwt. This means th best Southern hogs will bring abo $14.20 in St. Louis. CATTLE MARKET Cattle market is advancing som on good kind. Canner cows $5.1 ‘o $5.50. Cuttei-3 $5.50 to $6.0 Common to medium bulls $6.25 t $7.50. Medium to good bulls $7.C t-o $8.00.

PEAS ARE HIGH The cow pea crop is extremely short, not only here but over the en tire south. You can get almost any thing that you want to ask for your peas 1 believe that $5 per bushel would be a fair price. If you have peas to sell let me Ttnow what you have and 1 will sell them f°f >r°H Also give variety. Peas should be sacked in inside coffee hags, and should be cleaned well. A. G. HAMILTON, County Agt. SORGHUM SEED. I find that a good number of farm ers over the county have sorghum seed for sale. The sorghum crop was short the past year and sorghum seed should be a fair price. We have had several inquiries for seed but have net quoted anyone at this writing. Write me the amount and variety that you have and I will sell them for you. . A. G.
