But he has to use som< systemL to succeed. 'There is mt reason why we should not raisi enough meat and lard to do u through the year. It only takes i little corn to make a four hundre< pound hog, and a few counties cat raise better corn than Pickens county L and it would help to have a little patch of clover to turn the pigs or in the spring. Why can't we rais our own pigs instead of sending tc Tennessee for those long nose swine?' We have men in Pickens county that haven't bought a sack of flour in yeatrs, anid they are men of ftm liies. They say we can't raise wvheat mn this county. These men do. Of course5( this is not ,a good wheat coun try like the western states, but we can r'aise wvheat. and oats both by iriving then some ttentltioni and wvhat we lose on a short crop). We gain it all back by enriching our .soil. When the small grain comes off, sow the ground in peas for hay, and plant a fewv rows for next year's seed and someW for co~oking purposes, and bear in mind that crushed peas will make fat hogs. We can raise good cows, andl we should consider a cow a big help towar d our living. Give her the attention she dleserves and she wil.l bring you value return in good milk and butter. And then don't sell the young calves just because you dlon't like to hold them wvhile the wvife milks or because you don't like to put out a little extra care to keep them. The calf will make a cow some daty and bring you more money. The thing wve should put the most care to is our garden.' It should be a source of supply for foodstuff through the summer' season. Stake oflf a corner in your cotton patch and have a good garden. Drop a few beans in your newv groundl corn, and through the wviIter sell some milk and butter you get 'from your well cared for cow. (;et some sugar to preserve the fruit that falls andl goes to waste. Every land owner should have a good orchatrd. It doesn't require a great dleal of wvork andi it is worth an ef.. fort when you can have a dlish of Elberta peaches on your table. If we will take some of the time we spend talking hard times we can have a yard full of nice Rhode Island reds, white Wyandotts or Plymouth Rtocks. We all hlave chickens but we turn them loose to shift for them selves and pay them s'o little atten tion that they are not much profit. Give the chicken lot a little of your time and care 'and you will have chickens for sale and some to eat when the preacher comes, and eggs that wvill buy your coffee, soda and lots of other -little things Vou need from the store. Nowv is the time to raise corn, oats, wheat, potatoes and meat and other Ithings WO need at home, and let our cotton crop be our surplus profit. Then if cotton is twenty ,cents o .
