What of the coming/irop year? When the Christmas holidays are dually passed this conies to be one of the big questions on the farms, big and little of Mis sissippi. It is a question as vi tally interesting to the towns and cities as to the farmers, be cause the towns and cities quite as much as the farms, depend for sustenance on what is taken from the earth. What sort of a year is next year going to be? What sort of crops are we going to grow and bow are we going to grow them? The professional man, the news paper man, and even the bu>i ness man, can sit in the city and theorize on what the fanner ought to do, but after all is said and done, the tardier knows his own business about as well as the next man, and he may be quite as fond of a certain set of the ories as the city man, but he has found that in practice the the ories do not work out exactly as they promised. In this period of change, for we are in the year of the great est change in farming conditions Mississippi has known since the war, there are certain outstand ing (acts upon which even the I city man can ponder- For one j thing, everybody knows that the boll weevil has issued a decree that cotton farming can never again be as it was. When we come to think of it the one fact or of outstanding influence which has brought about this change is the boll weevil. The heavy rains of course hurt badly last year, but if it were not for the boll weevil we would go on raising cotton just the same and accord ing to the same methods as we did in the past. No sensible man believes that the farmer in Mississippi is grow ing in its entirety. He would be foolish if he decided never to grow aav ot the great staple of which the South has the world PHILADELPHIA, MISS., THURSDAY, JAN. 18, 1917 wide monopoly. But he would be equally foolish, if be staked li is all on a cotton crop, because the prices are tempting now. Cotton is going to bo grown, not only because the price is high now, but because it is reas onably certain that the price will be high next fall. But the intelligent farmer knows that he can not grow cot ton as he grew it ten years ago, and that he has no'business put ting all Jus eggs in one basket. In Ihe immediate future cotton will have to be grown with intel ligence and with care. A wary enemy is always in hiding now and the farmer has to light him off as best be can The intelli gent farmer is going to do as many of them did JaM year grow exceptionally large crops of food stuffs. This has been the econ omic weakness in our cottongrow ing we have not made the farm grow as much stuff lor man and the animals to eat, as it could produce. What is more, in cities like Jackson, there is a an 1 growing market for certain food stuffs. The* farmer will do well to make a note of that fact. He can sell always in Jackson, hay, syrup, potatoes, velvet beank and peanuts. These 'crops could, with profit to town and country be doubled in a year, It will be a great day for the country and a great day for the town when such crops become like cotton, staple crops beingrnarket ed every month and so in every month of the year furnishing a ttupply ed money for the chan nels ot rptail trade. —Jackson News’ II DMTHEIORDER. ~7 “Up-up ! Oh monkeys I” Then silence for a half a min ute. Oh Spencer! Worst call has sounded, ' At this tlie cor poral raises his head, yawns and grunts a time or two and sniff’s the cold air Hey youse lie calls, Get out of them bunks. A chorus of snores testify that we have not heard. Unfortu nately the evidence is against ua for the corporal and Shorty are the only ones in Ihe tent that snores in their sleep! Get. up moukeys and roll, yells the cor proal. You heard me Tennessee you’re tent orderly today get up and start that lite. Why don’t you get up yourself Fin running this tent, You do as I say, not as I do. Get up Wingo. Is corpral Jenkins up yet ? Better get out to that kit chen Shorty you kitchen police. Get up Tennessee and make that lire, Charlie Chaplain sanitary detail man get up over there. The tent orderly gingerly oozes out of bed curses the war and starts the fire. All out the rest of you mon keys, orders our corporal, Get them clothes on. We roll dut of our hunks and begin dressing but there is a very evident lack of enthusiasm for the job. The chill air rouses energy however and soon the tent is filled with sounds of bantering and laughter. About that time the old man of the sanitary detail slides out of his bunk and hollows I tell ye my name is not Charlie Chap lain and I’m going to knock the hammer off somebodys head if ye don’t stop calling me that. When assembly for reveille is sounded we began nosing our way out into the chilly air out- Patience, Tolerance and Triumph. side. The tap sergeant is already out blowing his whistle and hollowing I’m going to put every one of you on extra duty if you don’t get out of them tents. Our corporal in some mysterious way has dressed at t|ie last minute and takes the nonguard as we file out of the tent. Every man of us shiners pokes his hands into his pockets and shuffles into rank lor roll call, morning exer ci e and the beginning of the days work. ' After the morning exercise comes the placing of quarters a job that every man would like very much to shirk. As we start down the company street the ser geants and corporals begiuballi g Hey there you that went into that tent come out and pick up this trash. You monkey pick up that cigarrette stub and by the time the job is done you can see only about a half dozen men. Then comes that which every soldier is glad to hear, mess call and the shuffle that takes place to get in line for the breakfast would make you think of a drove ot bogs rushing to the trough for feed when they hear the call. The line is complete the mess seargant gives the word the dish ing out to every man his allow ance is started and the squatt ing begins. Every fellow says that he is cheated, some fellow got two slices of bread and he got only one. Someone over on tlie other side says, them cooks aint no good they can’t cook. Then you hear the cooks begin t- stir and retort at the accu IS za tions. Now that breakfast is finished and scanty it was. The real work of the day begins. Corp orals and sergeants incharge of pit and scoring details for the target begins calling their men hurrying out to their posts all roundly abusing the war. Next comes the call for the men to get their rifles and go to the range. Out we hurry into the cold and out 011 the range stand in • the cold, the wind so cold and hard that your clothes seems as thin as mosquito bar. After we have stood in the cold, till we are chilled through shivering and shaking we are marched up to the firing line to shoot. We lay ourselves up on the ground and try to catch an aim the rifle rocking so that you are as apt to hit the othar fellows target as your own. Fin ally a report is heard you find yourself slid several inches back ward by the kick of the rifle, your elbows smarting from the slide over the rocks and a red flag playing before your target. Another feature of the day is when an extra detail is called to do some errand. Ou a / cold December day the writer was peacefully resting upon his bunk while a good fire in the heater kept the tent warm, a sergent outside was coming down the line calling everyone in the tents out to help dig a lattrim pit. the writer, knowing well what would happen if he stayed there rolled olf his bunk and attempting to make his escape under the back of the tent and out the back way. He got caught in fly of the tent and kicked up a dust in the tent that looked like a sand storm. The day passes on, the routine work is almost done, retreat has sounded and the boys begin to scout for wood to keep the cold out of the tent during the night, A fellow will go down to the corral, grab a load of wood slip Cotton Production Of the South Saved from Destruction by Invention of the Tucker 801 l Weevil Catcher. This machine was demonstrated and tried on a few crops of cotton last season, hut was not perfected early enough in the year to be offered for sale or placed in the hands of the farmer for last crop, but they are now being man ufactured and will be ready for use when the next crop of cotton is grown, and the weevil appears. Write to the following parties, who are farmers that made crops of cotton last season by using this machine, when others who were not fortunate enough to have the machine failed altogether. , B. L. Allen, Newbern, Alabama. F. M. Lavender, ~ „ C. A. Webb, Marion „ R. K. Green, Greensboro ~ T corroborate the statement these parties may make, we would suggest also .your writing to: J. A. Blount,Pres. First National Bank,Greensboro, Ala. J. M. Moore, Pres. People's bank, Marion, Ala. j||!tj| . T * We have one of these machines ordered and it will be at our store in a few days. We would ask the farmers of our county to inspect this machine which we believe from the reports we have secured, is a solution, to a big extent of the boll weevil situation. Henderson=Molpus Cos. Philadelphia, Miss. out and back to his quarters cut his wood and go to pick it up some fellow soldier has stolen about half of it and then the lan guage you don’t hear at Sunday School is spilled out stroug and loud. The day is done and the the shadows of night are hovering over the camp. Someone who has been out comes in. The sand whipped into his face and eyes by the wind. He looks over at his bunk with a haybag for a mattress and two blankets for cover. He longs for that good bed he used to sleep in at home and says Old Sher man was right, war is hell. He then rubs the dirt from his eyes and says. 1 don’t see why they can’t find a better place to camp,' its hell sure enouhg to have to slay in this war to fight for this poor dirty land like there is not enough land in a better country. 1 don’t see why they dont let the Maxicans have this place for they would starve to death on it any way. Then the sleepy and weary soldier crawls over into bis bed to pass thß nigh away.
