OF INTEREST TO FARMERS.
Annual Conference to Be Held at Tuskegee, Ala., Jan. 18, 1911. The next annual meeting of the Tus kegee Negro farmers’ conference will be held at Tuskegee (Ala.) institute on Wednesday and Thursday, Jan. 18-19, 1911. Farmers throughout Macon and adjoining counties report an increase in farm products this year far beyond any previous time for several years. This increase has come about large ly through a better knowledge of how to till the soil, the selection of seed and how to take advantage of plant ing time. Many of the former meth ods of farming have been done away with, and year by year farmers are pursuing more advance methods along all lines of agricultural pursuit. Many of those who cultivate large acreages attribute much of their suc cess to the information received at these annual conferences. For these and many other reasons the 1911 con ference should be more largely attend ed than ever before. PRESS ASSOCIATION TO MEET IN MUSKOGEE.
