TIIK STOCK FOOD FKAl'Ih I am tiutnkful that there are two farm papers In the South and two In the North which tell the truth about the stock foods. One of Uie greatest embarrnMimenta I had In editing a Northern farm paper was that while I wrote nuitter denouncing the swindle on the fanner*, 1 waa never allowed to print It, for the stock food people paid alnmt •*.000 a year iu advertising, and we helped them lo |>o the farmer* brown. Tliank Heaven, I can say wliat I believe to be true in The Southern | arm Cinartte.——I*rof. \V. K. It is impossible to maintain soil fertility with out liie stock, and sooner or later the South unit ometo see it. ll'ith the cattle tick exterminated and our Southern fanners feeding that invaluable , attle food, cottonseed meal, to millions of dairy and beet animals, not only will the preservation of soil fertility be assured but the prosperity of Southern | agriculture will be equally well established.
