Put Old Fields in Grass.
Southern 'arm , l a( itttc:
There are are more ways than one
of making every acre a profitable
one - of getting paying crops
from every acre in cultivation.
This does not mean that every
atcre is to hbe tended in cotton or
coin or oats each year, or even
in cowp,';as or other hay crops.
It is not necessary to plow and
cultivate land every year to get a
paying return from it. Indeed,
there art thousands and thlous
andts of acres in the South that
will be paying a'res only when
we quit cultivating them at all -
that is, when we put them in
grass allnd keel them for Iermlia
nent Iastures. Short, stee p
hills that wash badly; ragged,
rocky tields; bottom lands that
are overlflowed with uncertain
regularity, all these will pay far
better in grass than in cultivated
crops; and more than this, if
thtey are treated right, they will
get better and give larger re
turns as time goes on.
We Iave to)o much so-called
)asture, land that is grown up to
pines and briers and brush, or
that is mecre untillable swamilp
land: but of real pastures, where
grass grows in sufficient quanti
ty to make fat cattle and sheep
and hogs, we have entirely too
It is all folly to say that grass
will not grow in the South, ler
inuda is one of the best Ipasture
grasses, and it grows almost
everywhere. ('arpet grass, Jolln
son glass, an(d redtop are valua
ble, too, in various sections; and
Texas bluegrass pIromises much
ts a winter pasture. Doubtless
there are other grasses that will
rl'ove to be of almost equal im
portace with these when we go
to investigating. ' For it is a fact
that we have made as yet no se
rious atteml)t to establish pas
tures. We have turned our stock
out and allowed them to roam at
large, imagining we were pastur
ing them. So running, they
have injured the cultivated lands,
sp)read contagious diseases and
made tick eradication an almost
Pastures, good p1astures, well
set with grass, well fenced, pro
vided w\ithll water and shade, are;
one of the crying needs of our
section-one of the things we
must have before we can raise
the sort of stock we should, and
before we get rid of the cattle
tick, that burden which hinders
our progress to prosperity.
We would not for a moment
lose sight of the great value of
the many annual pasture crops
that we can grow; but we do
wish to emphasize the necessity
of supplelenting these with the
permanent p)asture of perennial
grasses. We have said it before,
let us repeat it: "Every farm
needts a prmal' lltlet pasture."'
(Grass will not grow on land
too poor to grow anything else;
but much thin land will pay bet
ter in grass than in cultivated
crops, and this land will get bet
ter itself and hell) to imlrove
the rest of The farm by making
it possible to keep more stock.
Get the old fields in grass; this
is, in many cases, the very best
way to make them produce go3d

The annual uzIeting of the
stockholders of the Bayou Sara
Ice Co. will be held at the office
of the company in Bayou Sara,
at 11 o'clock Monday, Jan. 24.
lHow About This?
A farmer in this parish recently sold some cattle for
5 3-4 cents per iound. .lJust think of that, and we have
been selling our cattle otf for about :; vents. right along.
That farmer has learned just what cattle to sell and he has
solved the problem well. Hogs are selling to-day all over
the United States, in the markets for 89..00 per hundred
pounds on foot. Think of that. a 3540 pound hog bringing
you about $30. At that rate, two three hundred-pound
hogs are worth as much as a it.( pound hale of cotton at
12 cents per pound. Now, just think of that. West Feli
c'iana can raise hogs and cattle cheaper than almost any
other section of our great country: besides we can raise
here profitably, crops of corn, cotton,. lepedeza, peas. soy
beans, sugar canel, a t nd lRtatoe-, and all of these are sta
ple crops, and will sell. There is no use of our "having
the dumps" in a country that will grow all these things.
Let's all make upl our minds to make the biggest and
cheapest crop ever made in West Feliciana, in 1t:10, and
we will all be happy and all have plenty of money to put
