HINTS TO FARMERS
Rsv. J. D. Norris Writes tills Week to
the Tillers of the Soil.
During President Cleveland's first
administration a np-v cabinet ofllce was
created, tlmt of agriculture. The seero-
. tar; of agriculture of the United States
co-operating with the agriculture col
leges of the various states and territo
ries, also the state secretaries of agri
culture and the various experiment
stations, 'Liberal appropriations are
made by Congress and the states annu
ally to aid, encourage and advance the
agricultural interest of our country.
These departments and agencies have
ami are still preparing annual reports,
pamphlets, bulletins and books, and are
sending them out free to millions of our
farmers. The most thorough tests and
scientific inventions are being made by
the most competent and best equipped
persons along all agricultural lines each
year. So the best Information obtain
able is being given the people free on
Let every farmer write to Hon. Jos.
Wilson, secretary of agriculture, Wash
ington, D. C, and request him to
furnish them each month a list of all
the publications his department pre
pares and he will do it; write to your
congressman to send you a copy of the
last year book of agriculture, and you
will get one; write to Hon. O. B.
Stevens, commissioner of agriculture
of Georgia and request him to send you
Jiis great book, “Georgia Historically
and Industrially,’’ free, and other ag
ricultural information, and you will
get much literature that will interest
and instruct you. Attend all the great
expositions, state and county fairs you
c in, take and read one or more good
agricultural magazines or . papers; sul-
scribe for u poultry paper, a dairy
^-paper, your church paper, and of course
you Will take, pay for and read the
Vienna News first.. What is called the
.“Farmers’ Heading Courses” are be-
A timing quite general and popular, and
exceedingly valuable. It originated
with the Farmers’ Institutes. In many
part- of the country farmers’ institutes
are held very much as the school
teachers have their institutes. ■ -
It would be a great thing if the
farmers of Dooly county would have a
good fair each year in connection with
a farmers’ institute. We should have
a county poultry and stock association
held with the county institute and fair.
The plan of the fanners’ institute it
. conducted on the Chautauqua plan.
. Study such subjects as Soils and Crops,
Live Stock Feeding and Breeding,
Dairying, Fruit Culture, Gardening,
Farm Economics, Domestic Economy,
etc. The best text-booka on these
subjects are studied and used at the
institutes. Let the farmers get them
good farm libraries by all means.
Fanners should give more attention
to good seed, they lose even million of
dollars each year by using poor seed.
A little care and attention given to the
selection of good seed would remedy
this great loss to our farmers. Be sure
to use good seed, even if it becomes
expensive, it will pay you to secure
the best. All the money you put into
good seed will pay you amply.
Farmers should give more attention
to marketing their produce. If you
have cotton, see that it is gathered
clean, well ginned and neatly packed
before marketing it. If you raise
fruit, put it into neat and convenient
crates, and in packing, grade and label
each crate and it will pay you. If you
have eggs, let them be packod in a
. suitable basket and be sure they are all
fresh and clean, no one will buy atale
filthy looking eggs; If you have batter,
see that it was made from good milk,
_ churned, carefully worked and stamped
free from hairs and and such things, in
clean vessels and cloths.
" Pare water on the farm is ’ of tbs
greatest importance to man and beast.
Be carefol to locate the well inthe best
place to obtain the purest water. See
that no impure drainage affect* the
well. Let no fertilising materials dr (ft
into the well. Keep wells well covered
If pumps'or windmills are used, then
secure the best, bee that your stock
and poultry arc well supplied with pure
water. J. D. Nouns.

The postoffice was moved next
door into the Hargrove building
Monday, which was formerly used
tor a millinery store by Mrs. R. P.
Mitchell. This is a much: larger
and more suitable building than
the old one.
The-building was leased from
Mr. Hargrove by J, W. Roberts,
and rented to Postmsster Middleton
Mr. Roberts recently purchased the
postoffice furniture and fixtures
used in the office at Cordele, prior
to the time of its being fitted up in
new and larger quarters with new
furniture. It is in first class condi
tion however, as it had only been
used a few years.
The change was a needed one,
and our people feel under many
obligations to our clever postmaster
for his keen foresight in giving us
u commodious building and thereby
rendering himself better able to
give the public the very best service
Dr. H. A. Yountan*. Vienna’s
up-to-date jeweler and optician, has
moved into the building vacated
by Postmaster Middleton, where he
will be enabled to give the public
a better view of what he has for
sale. Mrs. Mitchell has moved her
stock .of millinery goods into the
store formerly occupied by Dr.
CARD TO THE PUBLIC.
Vienna, Ga, June 80th, 1002.
As you doubtless know, I sold to the
Vienna Cotton Oil Co., or rather to
Thomas Eggleston, as trustee for same,
my ginnery and transferred my com
mon lease on the Roundlap compress
and bat-former and condenser along
with some good will. Now good people
who stood with your shoulder to the
Roundlap Ginnery and not only patron
ized it, but helped me with the “new
and untried” package, I ask you to
allow me to thank you again for your
loyal aupport and I trust the same good
will, will be rendered the new concern,
as they are able and willing to extend
to you the same glad hand as glnnera
and buyers of cotton, also other prod
ucts as they may manufacture from
time to time.
A goodly portion of this company (s
composed of our neighbors and best
business men, who once could not sc*
the advantages of putting their cotton
up In Roundlap bales, but like sensible
people have changed their minds and
will put their great nuns and dollars
to the Big Wheel of the East Vienna
Ginnery and roll out more round lap
cotton than ever before. Hoping all a
pleasant and prosperous business with
the new company, I am,
Very truly yours,
D, B. -Thompson.

Americas, Ga., Jane 30.—The
ordinary of Sumter will, at an early
date, call an election here on the
local option question. Sumter has,
supposedly, been “dry'! for the past
four j*ears, but the enormous sale of
liquor here illegally wi’hin that
time induces the belief that the
next election will make a change.
The county is infected with blind
tigers and the sale of whiskey goes
on as undsr the former regime,
while neither the city or county
derives any revenue therefrom and
city taxes are at the too notch
already. Some 1,700 voters are
registered, and the number will be
increased to 2,000 before the date
of the proposed election.
The third district convention of
Georgia Masons, composed of
lodges in all the thirteen counties
comprising the third congressional
district, will assemble in Americus
in annual conclave July 23. Three
hundred delegates are expected and
the session, lasting three days, will
be one. of interest in Masonic
circles. Many prominent Masons
from outside the district will like
wise attend the convention at
guests of the two lodges here, A
great barbecue feast at Magnolia
Deli will be an interesting feature
of the occasion. .
