A Letter to Farmers.
To the farmers of Washington
parish as to common sense farm
ing. Some people get an idea.
into their heads that no mrran
knows anything more about
farming than he does, but at the
same time the farmers will say
that they can see that there is
something wrong and something
has to be done. Now comes the
'the question, what shall I do to
.ward improving my fare? I will
say the first thing, your ex
peues are too heavy. Why? Be
cautseyou are paying a wager
hand at the rate of $20 a month
to plow a little 2 inch diamond as
you call it and break about i1.2
acres land. per day, when if
fi WVuld get a 12 inch Avery
turniag plough and put two
:mulesto it the same man could
break 80 acres per day, but I
:ould not advise you to flat
ibrgak your laud hereº Bed your
coin landis the-fall of the year,
aad la off your rows six feet
piTttlay your first two furrows
4aboat24 inches wide then take
i ore farrows of of your
i ddles with your 12 inch turn
i*z plow and that will leave you a
. ildle about 18 inches wide and
Sthe tklre your 12 middle buster
" latl&l out your middleS. and
h6 e you will have your land . in
bdhape for the winter. You
;'I a cultivator and one
4nd a pair of mules can
e e hundred acres a great
ris thsn he can work 25
with. a single plow. So
.4aae one nman and a pair of
will do the work that it
takes four men and four
ble to do;, but don't you get a
ltIator unless you are going
100 acres of land this
i :. it would be the best 'thing

meat and bread off of the Market
for twelve months? Every mil
lionaire would have to pull
the bell cord over a mule's back.
am I not right? All I know a"
bout farming I have learned it
just as you have, by getting af
ter a mule Monday morning and
chasing him all the week I
chased a mule for 80 long years.
I began it when I was only 12
years old and I do say I have a
right to know what I am writing
I went to school about twenty
seven months all together. We
had the.famous old blue back
speller and Davies' arithmetic
and we used to have spellina
matches every Friday evening.
Two boys would spit on a chip
and throw it up, wet or dry so as
to see who got fi't choice. Well
1 am getting off of the question,
so will get back in line.
There are plenty farmers
working many farms but they
have quit the single plow as it is
a dead issue. As to the boll
Weevil you will not have them as
plentiful as you have had, then
get rid of your stumps and get
some tools to do something with
and prosperity will follow. In
working your crops you do
enoughwork each year ,to work
fouqr crops, I mean to work four
times as you do each year. My
advise to the farmers of the par'
ish is for you to improve your
corn and cotton you have been
planting a small kind so long
that it has run out just like hogs,'
chickens, and cattle. You have
got to improve your breeding in
these things on your farm. Of
course this question will be left
to you. With best wishes and
kindest regards to all hoping
you' will live a thousand years
longer and your troubles be little
ones. 8. P, Ventress,
