Are you fiinilier with I.e-l,tduza?
It is a natural roduct of South -

it does, in few other places in the
Have you planted any yet? If
not, d(o so at once, and make it a
part of your annual crop hereafter.
No les distinguished authority
than Dr. WV. 11. 1 )alrymiple, of the
Louisia:na State 'niversity, has
after careful tanalysis, pronctnced
it superior to the fanIous Timothy
hay of more northern latitudes. as
regards ,oth nutritive value and
as a soil buildler.
I know a IIiman who caine from
Scotland and tsettled in Loui-i.,:
only va few cars ago, workii, f,
mionthlyv wages on I, Loiliaiaia
farmii until lie had estalblihed his
worth .sufficiently well to ciable
himil to get assistance in the pur
chase of a small farm. Last year
he sold eight thousand dollars
worth of lespedeza seed, besides
saving enougllth of the hay to mlailn
tain the dairy lie has built uip in
the llmeanil time.
Can you beat that with rice,
with sugar, or with cotton?
And the beauty of it is, it is a
cheap crop, requiring no cultive
tion after planting, and timaking
moneiy for you steadily while you
are busy with your mlain crop.
What about it brother? Are \yol
going to plant a few acre this year?
You still have time to do it, but
there is no time to waste.If you art:
in any doubt about its value give
yourselves the benefit of the doubt,
plant lespedeza and be happyv.
The great farmers of this coun
try and of the world are those who
plant plenty of hay and produce
live stock. If you are going to be
a farmer, don't play at your game;
be a farmer right.
