It is with pleasure that I announce my readiness to start a new
year with the friends and patients I have made during my short res
idence with you. My office is now more thoroughly equipped than

encouragement to stay here, and I, in return, am trying to show my
appreciation of their patronage by doing all in my power to give

I have come here to stay. My bid for
your patronage is based on the fact that

do not forget to make every possible

Put in Winter Cover Crops
Do not forget the value of wheat,
oats and rye for cover crops. There
are four distinct values of these
three cover crops.
First: They produce fine winter
Second: They lessen the washing
of the soil and loss of fertility.
Third: The green plants use plant
food that is being liberated through
out the winter and when they are
plowed under a great deal of plant
food is saved that would be lost
Fourth: The P>»»ts P,0'ved under
in the spring will not onn add fer
tility but humus to the soil and
thus increase its. moisture holding
capacity. . , ,
If you have any question to ask
concerning these cover crops or care
for bulletins on this subject, write
to the Extension Division, University
of Arkansas, Fayetteville, Ark

Take a Little Time Off

the most independent man /i the

some play with your work? Attend
the community and county fairs and
do not miss the reunions and picnics
in your neighborhood. These meet

to exchange ideas with the other fel

Plant a Home Orchard
There are hundreds of homes in
Arkansas where a real fruit tree
cannot be found, and thousands of
others where the planting was con
fined to 'the fence corners or ter- j
races. Such should not be the case, |
but every farm home, whether occu- 1
pied by iand owner or tenant, should |
j have a well kept orchard of from
one half to one acre Only a few
I trees of each kind of fruit will be
needed to supply an abundance for
j the family. Do not forget that home
j grown fruit will do a great deal to
| decrease the cost ot living as well
as home grown vegetables, and
i fruits as well as vegetables are a
( necessity and not a luxury for any
I well fed family, o'rite to j. S. Knox

j vision of the University of Arkansas

tions for the best pla<-e to plant a
home orchard, the time to plant, the.
care of trees, etc.

Raise Our Own Mules
Arkansas buys most of her horses
and mules from the north. Because
of the war tne saleable animals in
the north have been bought up and
we will soon find, when trying to
replace the draft stock now in use
in the state, that it will be almost
'"impossible to find good mules or
uorses, regaruless of the price that
we can and may be wilting to pay.
If we are to make corn or cotton we
must have draft animals and the
surest way tor us to avoid disap
pointment and a probable loss of
time and money is to attempt to
breed and grow our own draft stock.
Arkansas should have more mares.
The northern part of the state with
its possibilities for pasture could
produce such animals most econom
ically while even cotton farmers
could well afford to have a few
mares on their farms for this pur
pose. We have recognized the value
of growing our own pork. Beef
animals are being introduced rapidly.
We must now give some attention to
the production of our draft stock.
With the movement of the cotton
crop scheduled to begin this fall at
a time when a combination of gov
ernment and commercial business
will be bringing tremendous pressure
to bear upon the railroads, the Com
mission on Car Service of the Rail
road’s War Hoard has issued in
structions prohibiting the shipping
of cotton in less than 65 bales per
car and requiring as many more to
be loaded as the size of the car
furnished will permit.
Notice to this effect has just been
sent to ouyers of cotton, with a re
quest. that they place orders for their
requirements on a basis of not less
than 65 hales or multiples thereof.
In the Southwest and Mississippi
delta districts, the average car will
load 65 bales and in the Southeast
district the average car will load 76
bales. Consequently buyers are
asked to order in multiples of 65
from the Southwest and 75 from the
Southeast districts.
The New England territory will be
taxed to the maximum capacity of
facilities this fall and the acceptance
of freight by the railroads serving the
territory north of the Ohio and Po
tomas rivers will have to be carefully
regulated. ,

A statement from the governor’s
