For years our farmers have made thi
sporadic attempts at raising odds an
and ends of various crops other
than can, rice and oottun, recom- pe
'9 mruded by agricultural experts as av
suitable for this eotion. And for
the most part they have been suoo
ceruol enough in the production hi,
7" end of the game, their principal be
difficulty having always been in vi
the disposition of their crops after eo
they were made. hi
'his year things will be differ- hi
out. they are dtfferent now, and
any staple feed or food crop the
farmer can make is in live demand
at more than' profitable prioes.
Practically there is nothing left ft
to sell in the local market, two
reeks of advertising for eorn or a
potatoes, cash at the track, cou
pled with two days soouting "
through the country, having failed C
to locate a carload of either. o
'his is as it should be at this
season of the year, and bespeaks a
fat prospect for those farmers tI
who are early on the market this ri
spring with Irish potatoes, oats, '
heay, and who in late summer and s
early fall will be ready to supply B
sweet potatoes and corn to an ex
hausted market. The farmers v
who, in conjunction with their li
cane or cotton, put out good
acreages of provender for man or
Least, and who raise a few pigs or o
cattle not only for their own use d
but a surplus for sale, this year, p
will never retoun entirely to the f,
one-crop system. I
While there will be no dearth ,
of buyers it should interest our a
own St. Martin farmers to know,
there be-is now, in fact-a lodal t
cash buyer for carlots of all staple 9
farm products. Paul E. Switzer, c
who most of you know through t
his community development work _
in this seotio, has located here
and, among other activities will
be constantly in the market for
products, and always available for
information on proper methods of
growing, fertilizing, packing, etc.
Look him up at the Messenger
office and R. J. Gary C,' store.
