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.

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.
