In the face of these conditions, as the farmers of the South consume much, more wheat and other foodstuffs, than they pro duce,; it is essential that they change tactics and start a new regime' in farming. ;c:--;si'.-.;fV; V." This Is an old song, we ; know. One that the ; farmers of . the South have heard overand ; over again.' But. it : is true, nevertheless, ' and the farmers .of this section will never . become truly Independent until; they adopt it. The Augusta Chronicle.. in:dlscussing this subject says: - "The x fall-time this fall -is the best time, to begin the work. Plant heavily of oats, espec ially selected: seed and best varieties, plant" some -wheat, some rye and bar ley to. help along 'the live stock for they, will need It during the "coming winter, and spring' and, they will save grain and hay This is a lesson that should be easily learned by the far mers of the cotton belt, for no mat ter what the price, "of cotton they can not " buy hay- and grain cheap enough to warrent them n ' buying it." . ; : "It is gettin g .to-be . a "common prac tice among the mtst progressive far mers to improve their field crops by selecting their seed - from the most, promising ,, plants." And this ,1s the only radical means of securing' a great er yield per acre and the sooner thjls plan is put into universal practice just1 so soon will bur farmers become self-sustaining. The - land they culti vate should produce more cotton and grain to the acre, and this can be accomplished only by proper seed, se lection, and i thorough cultivation. As soon as the farmer begins to pay at tention to what he might term the small and ' Insignificant things that come before him from day to'-day, there will open up an era of prosper ity such as lie has never known be fore; It has opened to thousands and the "way is open to thousands more. A better day Is his, it . Is his birth right,": and the sooner he taikes, posses ion to what is offered . the sooner he will become prosp'erlous and happy '"The propriety of seed selection and proper cultivation is bing demonstrat ed daily by many of our . Southern yield up beyond their expectations by following sound ' progressive : methods in their work. And what they have done , is -possible for every farmer to accomplish." What . .the . Southern farmer wants to do is to enlarge his production in the way of grain props, thus enabling him td keep a large number of live stock which will bring him greater returns, than trusting to his cotton crop alone. His salvation lies in a greater, diversification in everything that he produces.' No better advice could be given the far mers than the. Chronicle gives above. If all he farmers of the South would follow it. this would scon become the jcheii and most, prpsperqus section or me soutn. urangeDurg iimes-ue-mocrat . v , '' " r Choctaws to Wind Up Tribe .

"The surprise that metropolitan newspapers, betray, in spite of their efforts . to conceal it, at- the; ability displayed by. "country'' lawyers; and judges is amusing.
