Well I believe our people are pre
paring to plant more cotton than ever,
and alter "holding up" on fertilizer
tnme last year or so, are using more of
it this season than ever before. I am
glad to say, however, there seems to
be more comnposts used than formerly,
except a certain class of farmers who
sell all their cotton seed and every
thing else that Is salable about their
promises. Thcr'o is scarcely any- fell
i ng the a mount of injury done by sell
ing cotton seed off the farms. At a
low estimate. the cotton crop of this
township will be reduced by at least
100 bales by the short-sighted.policy.

are jubilant over prospects, as there is
reason to believe the fail oats will be
the finest for several seasons..
