„ WHAT A PARMER CAN DO.
Carroll County Man Demonstrates j Advantages of Dcversifled System. ] The Commercial Appeal of Sun day contained a picture of a train of wagons belonging to a Carroll county, Miss., farmer, and had the following to say of him: Asa demonstration of what the fanner can do with a diversified system of farming. Ike Jones sent 14 wagon loads of various produce from his farm in Carroll County, near Black Hawk, to Greenwood, Miss. The produce was sold soon after' it was offered in the city and brought between $l,lOO and $1,200, not including some of the- cotton which was held for a slightly bet ter price than was offered. Mr. Jones says that all the pro duce was raised on his place, that he doesn’t owe a nickel to the wholesalers or the banks, and that what he has done with diversiflea tion can be done by any other far • mor in the hills or in the delta. , In the train load of wagons, each wagon being drawn bv stock, raised on Mr. Jones’ place, there were the following: One wagon load of chickens and eggs, vegetables, corn, cornfed hogs, home raised beef, baled hay; twr wagon loads of peas, cotton and peanuts; three wagon loads of cot ton, and one wagon each of Louisi ana molasses and sorghum syrup. Just what Mr, Jones is doing b best told in the following letter to his son at Greenwood, written a few days before he sent the wagon train over: Dear son—Every man you see is preaching hard times and no money Claim the banks will not financi them to grow cotton, and they can’t do anything but go deeper in debt all the time, and the country b ruined unless someone comes to the assistance of the farmer. Tin truth about the whole thing, as 1 see it, the average man of Missis sippi is too lazy to work. Preach hard times, high taxes, too many good roads, bond issues for consoli dated schools and abuses the de velopment of the country in gener al. If the poor “devils” would go to work and stop all this rotten-talk the country would soon be back tc normal. As we have the finest coantty in the world here in Cen tral Mississippi. I am a little short of ready cash, so am going to get you to place some of my surplus farm product* with some of your delta farmer who need such as I have, and en gage the other produce with tin boarding houses and hotels. As soon as the weather clears up and the gloomy spell changes to sunshine I will send you twelve wagon loads. One wagon load of chickens and eggs from your mother’s yard oi One wagon load of cabbage, pota toes and other vegetables. One wagon load No. 1 ear corn. One wagon load choice baled hay. One wagon load clean, sound cow peas. One wagon load of one-gal. cans of Louisiana molasses. . One wagon load of one-gal. cans of sorghum molasses. One wagon load of fat beef cattle, home-cured and breakfact bacon; One wagon load of fat porkers, one ham 42 pounds. Three wagon loads of cotton to be disposed of at market price. Seven of these wagons will be Trawn bv 1 1 home-raised mules. Son, your • Id dad has been firm ing for 46 years, and in all this time the one-crop system has never been started on my farm. I have plenty of corn, three-year-old hay. four-year-old syrup, five-year-old bacon, two-year-old cotton, which is a side issue, and have never made a crop failure or begged for bread. If the farmers of Mississippi would wake up, go to work and stop preaching hard times, petty politics and such rot, put their shoulders to the wheel and all pull together for the good of themselves, their fellow-man and the country in gen eral, what a grand old state Missis sippi would bet Let me know when you get my produce engaged and I will send it to you. Your dad, IKE JONES. FROM~*lf AN WHOKNOWS. SPEAKING before a convention of newspaper men not long ago Hon. A. P. Sandies, for years of the Ohio State Fair Association, said; v “The country editor has never made a million dollars. Asa rule he makes more donations to the community than any other half dozen folks. A town is always on the map if it has a real, live weekly paper to make a noise, advertise its merchants, and make people think. The rural paper is a power that is recognized by the political boss more than it is recognized by the home folks or even the home mer chant. The, clubs, the lodges and social events all want space in the home paper whether the subscrip tion price is paid up or not. The profit in a country papei* is often the money that is Credited .on the hooks of the editors and never col lected. The good editor is so busy getting out bis paper and doing his •work that he does not have time to .collect Everybody ought to take the home paper, so they will have a place for their funeral notice and so they will be sure of getting one their folks won’t be ashamed of. •Oo around and subscribe now—-and pay for it in advance," „ —Newton Record ■NOTICE OF BOND HALE Scaled bid* will h** received until 12 o’clock N July . 1922. -ame belli? the Ist Monday of said month, hy the Board of Supervisor 4l of Neshoba county, Mississippi, for S4OOOOO of Bloomo CotisoUdated School I'istiict Bonds of said county.
