1 have traveled t,hrough every state
from Florida to Maine, and Pickken
county has more. advantages for tht
farmer than any other section I havt
ever seen. 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.
