FARMERS AND THEIR AUTOS Not Bought for Pes , but Because Machines Can Be Used to Much Advantage in Farming. Recently there has been consider able pessimism expressed by country bankers over the alleged reckless ex travagance of farmers in buying auto mobiles, and some state bankers' as sociations have gone so far as to ex press in official resolutions their dis approval of farmers taking their money out of the banks to buy ma chines and intimating that credit will be refused those who try to borrow money for that purpose. These pessimistic "warnings" by the banks are so uniform in charac ter and are sent with such marked regularity as to arouse the suspicion that they emanate from a certain source and are intended to conceal a sinister purpose. Perhaps this activ ity on the part of certain powerful financial interests may be explained by the reports that a great trust is being formed to take over all the prin cipal automobile factories in the United States, and if the business can be demoralized by frightening people and thus preventing them from buy ing machines the central plants can be bought for less money. While it is true that thousands of farmers have bought autos, it will doubtrlsa be found on proper investi gation that most of them had the money in the bank to pay for them, and that very little borrowed money has been used for this purpose. The report sent out by a Wall street agency that farmers all over the west were mortgaging their land for this purpose and that one bank in Kansas City held 58 farm mertagages which had been placed to get money to buy automobiles, have been proven to be entirely untrue. Parmers are buying automobiles not as bankers do, for pleasure-but because they have learned that they can use them to a great advantage in their farming operations. A trip to town which usually takes three hours with a good team can be made in forty minutes by an auto, a saving ot nearly two and a half hours, and the team can be kept at work in the field meantime. This saving of time and the labor of a team and man In the field is well worth while and highly commendable. Thousands of autos are used every day by dairymen, fruit growers and truckers to deliver their produce to market, and these machines, loaded to the guards, may be seen daily on the streets of market towns in every state, east, west, north and south. Many farmers also use their autos for power to run separators and oth er light machinery on the farm, as It is the cheapest power that can be supplied. And if in addition to these needs the farmer uses hib auto to take his family to town or to church or to visit his friends with comfort and celerity while the work teams are resting, he is merely showing further evidence of his conservative business judgment and good common sense which we may safely cOntinue to trust. ABANDON BIG PEACH ORCHARD Bearing Trees to Number of 225,000 Profitable Crop. An item appears of curious signifi-l cance with regard to agricultural production in the south. It is that what is described as the largest peach orchard in the world, that of the Bayley estate of Americus, Ga., has been cut down and burned and the ground given to cotton raising. The orchard contained 225,000 bearing trees and for years has been among the first to supply the northern mar kets, says the Pittaburgh Dispatch. But while there have been immense shipments, large quantitles went to waste and the owners believe that they can get more profit out of cotton on the same ground. It has besan one of the chief claims that the ruth's greatest hope was In diversit,1 Its agriculture and espe cially ie falsing fruits and vegetables for nnhern markets. Yet it appears from chMs that the cost of shipping is an lammPnse drawback for the south eran prterlucers of perishable eropse, the greater part of which has to be sold is the north. Yet it remains the fact that there are few Junctures when the southern peaches cannot be readily sold, and if northern raisers can eta good peach crop at all they s, sell their product at good rates. It is true that cotton gets a far bet ter price now than when the southern fruit movement began. Yet we find it hard to believe that this great peach orchard would not have yield ed its owners more than the cotton crop is likely to. Water in the Cow Pasture.
