RAISE MORE FROM
THE SAME FIELDS
Present Drouth Convinc
ed the Farmers the
Value of Deep
This long dry spell has proven to the
farmers of this section the absolute
Necessity of deep plowing at the right
time and in the right way. Crops in
deep, well prepared seed beds have not
been hurt, while those in Shallow, cloddy
seed beds are drying up.
Our section is well blessed with good
seasons, but our farm lands must be
properly drained and properly plowed.
Farm drainage means water control
It not only means carrying the excess
water off of the land but it means, also,
terracing on hillsides or sloping fields
to prevent soil washing and deep plow
ing to conserve the moisture when
needed in times of drouth.
At the present time we have to work
on a smaller margin of profit, and
naturally we should want to take
all measures possible to make ev
ery acre of land produce just as much
is possible for it to do.
V The roots of the plants in what is
called “thin soil” are confined near
the suffacev Consequently they are
cut off by the water line, and cannot
penetrate deeply enough to receive the
necessary food supply. The result is
that the plant soon turns yellow, sick
ens*and dies. Whereas the plant roots
in well drained and deeply plowed soil
run down and spread out which in
sures a vigorous, healthy growth.
The man who attempts-to grow a crop
on undrained land or shallow plowed
soil, regardless of the season, is con
stantly confronted with the question,
“am i”sure of a crop this year?”
Whether the season be wet or dry
the man whose land is properly drained
is always sure of a crop, which ena
bles him to mature his plans without
The tractor owner has at hand the
best power in the world for doing this
work looking to bigger crops.

ing, what the tractor will do, and we
look for bigger and more profitable
crops as the result of these demonstra

Several of Our Business Men Would
Have Farmers Get Together to
Consider the Present Crop
Several of the business men of Win
der have suggested that we have a
meeting of the farmers and business
men of Barrow county to discuss the
presence of the boll weevil in this sec
tion. If this suggestion meets the ap
roval of a goodly number of our eople
and they will notify the Winder News
a day will be set for the meeting. We
can invite some exerts to be present
and advise the best line of procedure.
Do Not Kill the Birds
Do not kill the birds. They are more
useful than you can imagine. It has
been estimated by men who have made
a close study of bird life that the
birds in Georgia destroy .'11,6811 bushels,
or fifteen carloads of insects each day
of the spring and summer. These in
sects, if left alone by the birds, would
destroy many thousands of cars of de
licious fruits and vegetables.
The people of our Southland are very
indifferent about the protection and care
of our birds. In the northern states
birds are considered very valuable and
in the hack yard of nearly every home
there is a bathing pool for the birds,
and on the trees and fences are boxes
for their nests. There the laws pre
venting the killing of song birds are
strictly enforced, and the little boys
are taught to love and protect his little
feathered friends that come for several
thousand miles from their winter home
in South America to destroy the in
sects that would deprive them of deli
cious cherries, apples, peaches anil
many other fruits and great quantities
Parents of Winder, do you know that
there has been a most destructive in
| vasion of little birds and their nests
by our boys this spring. Some of
them have been seen with pockets full
of eggs and many nests have been
found torn to pieces.
Please do not allow your hoy to do
this hut teach him the importance of
saving the birds and offering them ev
ery inducement to step and build witli
us. This spirit will make of your hoy
a greater and nobler man and when
lie is old lie will reflect with pride upon
his boyhood days and thank you, his
father anil mother, for this sweet and
beautiful sentiment taught him when
a boy. A BIRD LOVER.
THE SEINING LAW.
I wish to call the attention of the pub
lic to the law on seining for fish, as I
understand some parties have been
seining. The law forbids seining be

each year, and any parties violating
this law will be subject to prosecution.
Better obey the law.

Winder Should Have
A Bargain Week
During the Winder should
put on a Bargain Week. We can ad
vertise our town, give the surrounding
section real bargains in goods, and pre
pare to draw the trade of this section
to this city. Trade will improve by
fall and we ought to put ourselves in
shape to reap the full benefit of the re
vival of business.
Every business house would profit by
the movement. The cost would be very
small, hardly felt by any one in Win
der and it would mean great sums to
all business enterprises during the fall
months. The cities that place them
selves squarely before the public dur
ing the next two months are the ones
that will reap the rewards.
Let's have a real bargain week,
something to attract the people every
day in the week, and let them know
that Winder is the best place in this
section to buy goods. Get them turn
ed towards Winder now and we will
get their trade during"the fall.
Concerted action among our business
men will win. What say you?
