Nov. 26.—County and city councils of defense were urged today by Provost Marshal General Crowder to assist the local exemp tion boards in classifying the nearly 10,000,000 men subject to the select ive draft. “There is in every city, in every hamlet almost, a council of defense,” said General Crowder. “The organi zations were built to help the nation in its emergency. This is their op portunity. Everywhere are men who need help in the preparation of their questionaires. The legal advisory boards will be the advisory commit tees. They will need men to go into the homes and factories. Meet ings should be organized, posters should be displayed, lists should be prepared, all looking to the help of the man and the quickening of the nation’s man power into action. ‘I an. confident that as a result of this call every local board will be aided in its efforts and every dis trict will be visited. The 20 days following December 15 should find every 'patriot on duty.” General Crowder said that county and city councils of defense and civic organizations have offered to assist the local and district boards in securing clerical help and in other wavs. The boards were urged to encourage such offers and to co operate with the organizations as far as consistent with their duties.

Nov. 27.—Last week I failed to write you on account of having been called to New Orleans to judge the agricultural products of the great fair and live stock show, and I wish I could have the space !.to tell you of the things of interest seen at that great fair. On my re turn trip I traveled by daylight, a distance of 500 miles through a strict ly cotton country, and I saw only seven crews of cotton pickers in the field. Between Memphis and New Orleans, a distance of 400 miles, there was not as much as five bales of unpicked cotton in the fields to be seen from the train. This means that nearly all of the cotton has been picked and ginned, and that the world is going to be surprised at the small cotton crop for this season. It means too. that cotton will be selling around forty cents a pound before next July. I have been trying to make money for the farmers this year by advising them to hild their cotton. Some have taken my ad vice, and everybody, to a man. who has done so, has made money by it, and can make more. I am your sen tinel on the watch tower, and it is my duty to tell you these things. If you fail to take heed, and lose i money, it is your fault. . say to the Condensed Statement of | People’s Savings Bank I * Marianna, Ark.

The speculators are in many Instances making as much on your crop as you are, or more. Cotton has been sold in Liverpool this month for forty two cents a pound. It costs six cents a pound to deliver it. How many farmers are getting thirty six cents a pound? Don’t rush your cot ton to market. Hold it. Warehouse it and borrow money on it. •The early frost hurt cotton twenty five per cent. . Millions of unopen bolls are in the field. They are worth money. Machines are made to break these bolls so they can be ginned. Some ginners are putting them in. others will. Save these bollst. Gather and dry them, if your- ginner cannot use them or gin them ship them to some ginner that can, or run them through a thresh ing mashine or pea huller, and then the ginner can gin them. Dr. < B. Ganna way of Russellville is putting in a breaker to handle these bolls, and will pay from $1.75 to $2.50 a hundred pounds for them. Don’t lose the value of these green, frost killed unopen bolls. They are wrorth money Now is the tim* to breed your brood sows for pigs next spring. Don’t delay or overlook this matter. Breed every sow and gilt on the place. Prepare some ground for spring pasture for the pigs. Sow it in rape and spring rye in February, i Clover can be sown In February or March when land is suited. Sow a patch of sorghum for the hogs to be turned on in July or August, when other grasses are burned out by dry weather. Plant soy beans | for fattening in the fall. Plant whip poorwill peas or velvet beans in all your corn and along all fence rows ditches and turn-rows. Put the idle spots to work. Remember that a good fat hog Is worth about as much now as a negro baby was before the war. Raise pigs and j calves and "rass. There Is n0 nr tax on eith* and there is money h them all. Go to it in hogs cnttk sheep and goats—the things t5 make human food. It pays. It k safe. Ask me for advice or heln when you need it. That is whan am here for. ^ Don't fool your corn and hay away. Corn is selling at a dollar a bushel in some parts of the state. Hold it. Good hay is worth $2$N a ton. Don’t sell until you get Iti value. -o TO GET ALL SLACKERS. Washington.

This is both econo- § mical and patriotic. It pays the farmer and also serves the nation by I releasing corn for human consumption. On this point some agricul- I tural organizations of the south have printed and circulated thousands 1 of conies of the following statement bv Dr. Tait Butler III II “There are in the eleven cotton states 6,500,000 horses and mules. | 11 If each of these were fed two pounds of cottonseed meal per day it jj would release four pounds of corn each day from the usual daily feed jf of about 14 pounds, and 200 days of such feeding to all horses and !| mules would release 100,000,000 bushels of corn for human food—and j 11 the mules and the horses would be benefitted by the change. “4 pounds 'of corn at $1.55 per bushel costs 11 cents. ;; “2 pounds of cottonseed meal at $40 per ton costs 4 cents. "The feeder would thus save 7 cents per day on each head of | stock, or a saving of $14 per head in a period of 200 days.” I Marianna Cotton Oil Mill * • '
