W. D.GOOCH, Com. Sonme Southwest- M4 ern Reflections Ha Among the people the sweet tiri lxtato sentiment is growing. ,,,, It fits in so nicely after early , Irish potatoes or oats have So been harvested, and leaves time after the sweet pota:to " Pro has been gathered to get a __. fairly goodxl crop of pea vines, to be turned under or mr nake E' hay. It brings yon goxl moniey in August, and enables you to pave the way for getti-ng ;'an ulnder the tyranny of tW: ;.,,-- re. crop system. It makes it almost necessary for you to have a few pigs to_. fatten on the culls, which are not large enough to be mer chantable. ' It keeps your land in go xd tilth and fits neatly into a sane system of crop rotation which combines the principles : of profitable production and soil improvement. Every\ farmer should plant at least one acre for the early +. market this year. You won't . t get rich from the proceeds of a single acre, but von can't Sloose much under the most unfavorable circumstances possible; and vou will have made a start away from the , onie-crop curse and in the direction of agricultural in dependeence and real farming. t ''"But why plant potatoes?" vou ask. Because the others . are going to do it and a mar ket will be created. If every 11 one should plant a different crop there would'nt be enough of one product to justify ' buyers in coming after it. i Therefore, lets get together Oil sweet potatoes---orgalize ie for "Potato Day," plant about yI the same time, cultivate well I and harvest them early enough i to get the fancy prices that the gourment is glad to pay e for the first products of the season. It's his money we're i after.
