THE FARMER’S OPPORTUNI
TIES IN NESHOBA COUNTY ByO. C. Roberts, Dixon, Miss, The opponuniiies nr environments of a farmer living in Neshoba Coun ty are equal to, and in some Instan ces far exceed some of the other counties.in the hill district of Mis sissippi. It has been my pleasure to visit in twenty five of our counties, and 1 am convinced, after close observa tion, that none of these are superior to Neshoba, when we take every thing into consideration. Every cuunty'aud ev>>ry state has its natural advantages and disad vantages. Neshoba county forms a square of 24 miles, containing 88, 000 acres of land. A large percent of this acreage is a sandy loam .soil, with an ideal clay subsoil. This soil whjch constitutes a large per cent of each farm, as a rule, if properly handled will produce maxi mum crops. The possibilities of this land are still hidden to a large ex tent. Mature has given us a long list of plants that will grow and thrive on Neshoba soil as soil-builders and market crops. Our rainfall and mild climate make it possible to keep a crop growing on our lands the entire year. If we work our stock we must feed them, and if we work our laud we must feed it. A fat horse and a rich acre of land are Just alike. We keep them fat by giving them a well balanced ratiou: Nowhere in the south can a farm be bought for less money, than in Neshoba Coun ty. We also have many thousands of acres of ceek and swamp lands, now being drained, which will some day in the near develop into a great corn belt. Stock-raising can also be made profitable by utilizing our natural advantages. No county in the state is ahead of us in the poultry business. We have two rail roads and one well equipped town to handle our farm products, live stock lumber and etc. We have schools and churches in every rural com munity, which are the two great great agencies for developing a peo ple to high ideals -and lofty aspira tions. Our population of 22,000 has a creditable i eoord for loyalty to the laws of the land. I feel safe in stat ing that 00 1-2 percent of our people are law abiding citizens. 1 also (eel that this same percent has respect and regard for Christianity. To re spent and honor Christianity and obey the of ouf country, are the two most important opportuni ties existing in Neshoba County, today. A mental and financial igiant, though a moral wreck is aud will always be. a failure. Consolidated schools and good roads are both valuable assets, aud lam proud to state, are growing iu the minds of the mass of people. It takes time to bring these things up to their best. 1 feel that there is an under-current drifting down the avenues of time towards these valuable conditions. Neshoba County has an abundance of timber and good water, We also have a splendid mail service carried on daily by ten Post Offices and nineteen rural routes. A net work ot telephone lines reach every nook and corner of the county. , Boiled down to its lowest analy sis, w - have a good place iu which to live. • . ENDORSEMENT OF MRS. AR NOLD FOR CONGRESS July 27, 1922 This Is an endorsement from friends and neighbors of Mrs. J, E.
