S THE LABOR QUESTION SOLVED
Ac Regards the Farmer---Improved Ag
Y ricultural Implements Did It.
The expense account, as in all
ss. businesses, has been quite an item
with the farmer. and has been the
means oftentimes of reducing his
income below the cost of making
,n the crops. Of this expense that
_ of labor constituted quite an im
portant part, while that of mule
0 flesh and feeding same was by no
9, means a small quota, it usually re
quiring about one hand and a mule
to work twenty acres of corn. But
. the improved agricultural imple
ments have wrought a wonderful
ad improvement in this line, as we
know of an instance where three
hands are tilling THREE HUNDRED
m ACRES of land. This we assert ad
: visedly, and in it are supported by
c, one of unquestionable veracity, on
whose farm the work is being
m. done. With such information as
m. THa PROGRESS has furnished inthe
last two issues alone, the ability to
" raise hogs at a total cost of one
m. half a cent per pound, corn at ten
cents per bushel, to cultivate one
. hundred acres with one hand, to
raise fifteen bushels to the acre (a
small calculation), with a ready de
m: mand for both pork and corn,
there is no reason why prosperity
:n. should not perch on every hill-too,
o stalk across every field in North
These articles are not visionary
conclusions drawn on paper simply,
which flee as soon as a practical
test is put, but are based on real
ity, by repeated experiments by
men who have grown prosperous
e- from their practice, and who have
rn some time ago practically settled
y7 the matter.
ie In them all, there is no one
which is more beneficial than these
labor-saving implements, as they
will greatly aid our farmers to be
se come independent of the demoral
n ed negro labor.
y On any of these articles or edi
torials we invite the conclusions
la of contrary opinions of those who
to will do so, for the sole purpose of
1 teaching or being taught, and will
7 gladly publish all communications
,y addressed to THE PROGREss, to that
t- end, free of charge. So let us hear
1e from you, if we differ, and if we
6 oannot furnish the proof of our as
d sertions we will be willing to go
down foot, but our word for it, we
will prove every one.

until the regular meeting of the

SYou were sincere in all you said.
for I know if you have one virtue
which predominatei over any one i
rt of the many you possess. it i3 can
dor and sincerity, therefore you
are not at fault in but one respect,
and that is in being led astray by
the extravagant theories of your.
friend, who seems to deal more in
rt imagination than in actual practi- 1
cal experience; hence I desire to
Id direct your mind into the channel
of reason. In the first place we E
th will take up corn producing, and (
see what it takes to produce aE
bushel of corn on the hill lands in
Louisiana. The river planters can a
at not raise corn so cheaply as the j
hill men, their rich soil being bet- 1I
ter adaptediob raising cotton, from u
which they can realize more than s
bh y devoting it to corn raising. We
first select a good average hill
0- farm and place the rental at $2 per c
acre. Should we fertilize, to make -
a trial for the best results, this will
;j cost $3 per acre, labor to put in or
der and planting $3: it will re
q(ire to cultivate this acre labor
a 3, use of mule and foeding :1, to
e- gather and house $2. makling a to
tal of $13. We produce on this
acre 50 bushels of corn. This. as
i- you see, brings thecost of produc
i- ing to 26 cents per bushel. If you
e. claim that our figures are extrava
gant, to produce the amount
named per acre by one half (and I
a dare say most any farmer of prac
d tical experience will not agree with
you), you will find that it still ex
)f ceeds the figure you name.
is Now we will try and find out by w
n what unheard of method pork can of
be raised at Y cent per pound. It b
requires, by the experience of the
most practical farmers of the
n Northern and Western States, fi
g from 10 to 15 bushels of corn to w
,f produce a 200 pound porker; it
should he be swilled and have
e plenty of grass. 10 bushels will be
o sufficient. but fed in the ordinary
way it will take all of 15 bushels 1
of corn to take him from a wean
ling and make 200 pounds of good
pork out of him. u e have already I
found that it costs 26 cents to pro
a duce a bushel of corn on Louisi
ana hill land; 15 bushels will then
make our porker cost us $3.90, or
in a fraction of $4; hence we can 2
e safely say that it will cost us at
t lea4t 2 cents per pound. A hog
,loses one-fifth, or very near it,
which will be 40 pounds. At 2
cents a pound this is 80 cents,
Smaking $4.70 net, which comes 2
s very near 21 cents per pound by
t the time he is landed in our smoke
house. Should one live near tim
ber, where acorns are plenty, he
can make it cost him less, but such 6
pork is never desirable--nothing
to compare to corn-fvd. Your
practical farmer may be situated
r thus, and his hogs may pryey upon
his neighbors' corntieds, where 3
fencing s poor, as he must give
his hgs all the advantages possi
ble in order to be safe in making
this extraordinary statement.
I have hurriedly gone over this 2:
