AH over the South there _ _ _ are little odd cor* nen of Land, about the bouse or doom by the creek, or in the pig lota, that could be planted to pecans and made to yield profits of which their owners have neveT dreamed The planting of regular orchards too. on a com mercial scale offers great opportunities for those who can wait s little while to realize on their investment. On page l 5 Mr. Dunbar Hunt tells about this orchard, how it was planted how it has been cared for. the varieties, the returns and all. It may surprise you a little to hear that he has one pecan tree standing tn front of his residence that yielded last year sixty dollars worth of nuts. Ml'e rather expect you will want to plant a pecan grove of your own when you have read his article, and there are lota of worse things you might do. for thla time It haa about aold me out I will rha&gc and renew it aoon.

Don't forget to look on page 11 and read. too. that battle-cry adopted by the Tennessee dairymen. It might fit your case exactly. Of course, you are looking for our other Tennessee piece, because you surely want to make more beef and make it cheaper. Our report of the Farmers* Cnion meeting should interest mil who wish to help bring about better price* for cotton; and there are other new* items of especial Interest to farmers On our editorial page we are treating a matter of tragical importance to all our farmer readers —the fearfully high Southern death-rate from ty phoid fev. r. malaria, and hookworm disease, each trouble being largely preventable by proper sani tary precautions. We hope that the figures given with their fatal significance will awaken our peo | pie to the seriousness of the situation, and a 111 | tie later we shall have some of the best medical authorities in the country tell Southern Karin <■« readers how to lessen this fearful drain upon j the lives, happiness, and property of the Southern people. Those appetizing old-time Southern recipes on page 11 should Interest men and women alike; and so should Mrs. Stevens's account of the work of ths Woman's Farmers* Institutes. Her paper treats of the work In one county, but the applica tion of the principles and methods outlined may be made just as effectually and with as much profit in your county as iu any other.
