The plan of profit-sharlnlg will solve the farm labor problem, says Mr. Harbert. Give the tenant an opportunity to raise hogs, chick. ens, etc.. of his own and he will take a real interest i*. his work 1r4d in thi farm Then when' he is offered fve or six dollars a day for outside work he will refuse with the yleas that he has interests of his own to look at ter. The common method of profit-shar. hits in the South is for the landlord to furnish land, teams, farming Im plements and house for the tenant while the tenant furnishes the labor. The tenant then gets one-half of the trops produced. Mr. Harbert advocates firmness, kildness and sympathy In deailn with farm help and giving thm a opportunity to raise something fto themselves.
