My Dear Mr. Dlvidson: May I be permitted to extend to you my hearti est sympathies in your recent bereave ment? I first met your son, Lt. Joseph M. Davidson, at Fort Myer, Va., and we served together thereafter In the same battalion. To know him was to love him and admire his very fine qualities. His loss is both a personal loss to his many friends and to the regiment as a whole. During the first action in which ilis battalion was engaged in the early SIpart of October he acquitted himself in a most distinguolshed manner, dis playing marked coolness and personal bravery and very sound judgment. He was of Inestimable value to his battalion commander at a time when all of his company commanders and Imost of his other officers were aso During the last drive whioh brought Germany to her knee Joe was in com mI and of "C" Company and he handled it, a reported by Major 8weeny, with tacticdlslill and personal bravery, be ing at all times an example to his He met his death while leading his s men against a machine gun nest t which was holding up the advance of r his battalion. His actions throughout this engage ment were such as to warrant his rec F ommendation for the D. S. C. (Dis 5 tinguished Service (roes), to which he I. is unquestlonably entitled. a While certalaly nothing can com pensate his lo, it still most help to I know tint he was gratly belovid by II the men and ClOer of his regiment, I, all of whom feel his loss; sad that he d died sest galaNsy lealgg his men. - Asa yeiof y tmost y m pathy with yoe In yea bereavement is 11 which I join you sad that if there Is a any service I can reader you I am at h: your disposal, I remain, a, Most sineerely yours, d BwAan H.

I have been dealing witl: the efer' of the fertilizer industry and the use of fertilizers on agriculture, because as I have said, the elects on buslnefs ,generally must result from the effec' on agriculture, and I is obvious thb they must be Innumerable. :'The ter tililer business in the Sout h is one of the most important, and c.oncern . our prosperity more directly than any other industry, and in its eflects no other industry so ramilee into other business or has a greater effect on the industries and business generally Helps Railroads and Manufacturers Perhaps among the intii-i ie' whict 'are more particularly and i t. Itl ben efited by the use of comi.lc. -'al felrit Isers are the railroads .,.i: com.utet Icarriers, which first bring tt tilize: ,to the farmers, and in returin tran port the increased product- of th. farm to the ends of the earth: and finally when these products are sold. for a third time, the railroad- are call ed upon to bring to the farmer his supplies of foreign and domestic prod nsts. The se o fertIuiser has made mert spIdle in the South, more oil millts more live stock, mere people and more commerce.

For instaace, when a bale of ootto with the seed st worth $160, our average per acre yied at em-third eO a bale is worth $5; bet when we ia ereose this to twelr4ds of a bile. weIth $10, we have a ges prolt of $50 with which to pay for the coot of the berease. Of eoume the cost of his mereosed yield, if the matter be geN ail judideeusly, will practically mover be as'mch as $50. More often than net, ia n t, It will be $3 or lees, leaving a set proit aof $2 or mre per aore. And the same role will hold with other orepo sad livestock as well.

G. Hastings, President of both the Georgia State Chamber of Commerce and the Southeastern Fair Associa tlon. Mr. Hastings repeated substantially his statement of a year ago when he said: "Unthinking people are apt to attribute the present measure of farm prosperity in the South to the high price of cotton rather than to its ral cause. "Just as soon a pmeea began to ap pear probable last all, there w a distinct let-up in the planting of wheat, oats and other small grains. One Georgia cotton farmer said to me, 'If we are going to have peace, we are not going to plant any wheat in my neighborhood.' "Of course the high price of cot ton has helped, but if it had not been for the increased supply ot bread, meat, vegetables, rain and forage made on the farms, there would have been little prosperity for any one bat the suply merchant. Cotto was anad is relatively lower In price than food stufs, and will continue to be for years to come. "An extra two or three mllion bales in the 1919 cotton erop will smash present attractive prles, while the world-wide demand for bread and meat and the disoganisatn ot Seed production in Dhrope inoldent to the war, means high food prmes ever where for yeas to come. "High fooeed prles. are a eetalt and low cotte pries are san al certainty it the Soed and ga sla e of 191,. 1917 and 1918 are thrmew bhe into cotton in 1919. Herein lies the danger to our present farm prosper ity. If we.go back to our old before the-war system of growing all cotton and buying all tood and grain, we will Set another Jolt like 1914 with rea sonable certainty. "Present BSothern arm prosperity ean be maintansed in oe way only. Produce on home acres, so far as po sible, every pound of food, vegetables, grain, hay and forage needed by fam ily and livestock, them put every other available acre in cotton or other eash crop. This method means cash crope made with little or no debt-the crap owned by the producer at the end of the season instead of 'owed' to the supply merchant. "Food and grain production at dent for home needs, insures contin ued farm prosperity. Dropping back to the old way means debt like a >i stone around the farmer's nec." N WTflE a o.
