Headers of the Farm Bureau News will remember tho peanut demonstra tion carried on by Emmet Davis of Ranchvale last year. We are now ready to report the results of this demonstration, as Mr. Davis has just finished threshing his maize and still has the peanuts on hand. As you will remember Mr. Davis planted his peanuts and maize in al ternate rows, that is, two rows of peanuts and two rows of maize, al ternating all the way through the field of twenty acres, or in other words, half of the land was given over to each crop. The mails threshed out at the rate pf fifty bushels per acre, or five hundred bushels from the ten acres actually planted to maize. Besides getting this good crop of maize and peanuts, Mr. Davis has fattened out ten beautiful hogs on the land after the crops were re moved. Mr. Davis is so thoroughly eon verted to the advantages of this sys tem that he is going to use it with his entire crop this year. He figures that this system will relieve the labor problem to great extent because livestock can harvest these crops and at the same time return a good pro fit to the owner. ' Besides these advantages it is a well known fact that peanuts add YEARS RELIABLE RESPECTFUL REASONABLE FREE USE OF CHAPEL PRIVATE AMBULANCE I Magic City Fur. & Undertaking Co. 1 JOHNSON BROS. Night Phone 235 t Day Phone 211 fertility to tho soil and we may rea sonably cjpect an increased yield of grain this year from the land which raised peanuts last year. Mr. Davis will use the same land again this year but will plant his maize in the rows where the peanuts grew last year. By this system of rotation Mr. Davis is solving the fertility problem and at the same time getting bigger yields and bigger profits. Let Mr. Davis tell you how he does it He says the little Spanish pea nuts are the best for this system. MARKETING (Curry County Farm Bureau News.) The problem of the farmers is no longer making two blade of grass grow where one grew before, but it is making a fair profit on what he pro duces. The farmer must make fair labor income or be compelled to give up the business. He cannot afford to raise crops at present prices and pay the excessive price for labor, and expect to hold his standing in society. So the problem of marketing is one that must be solved, and we have no hopo of it being solved by anyone but the farmer himself. Marketing Is one of the major pro jects in the Farm Bureau program this year, and this organization asks for the co-operation of every farmer in the county to help solve this most important problem. There ara sev eral committees at work now, and it is hoped that the farmer will co operate with them in order that they may arrive at something definite. Let us all get together and be prepared to more adequately handle the crops in the future than we have in the past. We will take In your tecand hand furniture In exchange for new good.
