fijj'jo bales ginned to October 18tli last

about two-thirds of a crop.

OR. BUSH RECOVERS
STOLEN BUM CAR
The Ruick ear of Dr. W. L. Bush,
.which was stolen about two months
ago. lias been recovered, thanks to the
splendid service of the Ruick Compa
ny. When it was reported that the
ear had been stolen the Ruick Service
Company at once instituted a lockout
for the car and it was located in Wash
ington City, a few days ago. Sheriff’
Vamp went to Washington for the car
and also to get tin* man that stole the
ear. He will return this week with
both. It is almost impossible to steal
a Ruick car in the United States and
get by with it as that company lias a
finely organized force that keeps up
with every reported theft and they
soon run down the criminal.

Tomorrow (Friday) is Armist: •(*
Lav. All tile Edited States will stop

thus reminding all our people of the

to add your prayer to the other prayers
of our city and section at that time.
For two minutes we will stop in our
work and offer our silent prayers to
Almighty God for deliverance.

Program For Farming
The farmers of this section will be
interested in plans for next year, and
The Winder News, always anxious to
be of service to its patrons, gives some
of ilii* plans that have been worked
out by fanners over in South Carolina,
which is in about the same latitude as
Winder and Barrow county.
Cotton production in this Piedmont
section is safer than in the lower sec
tions and will continue to he profita
able in average years, provided due
ran* is exercised in meeting weevil
conditions. The acreage idiould he
strictly limited to an amount which can
be perfectly handled by tin* available
labor. Ample foodstuffs. including
corn. peas, velvet beans, potatoes, sor
ghum wheat, oats, etc, should be
grown. A suggested division of acre
age for a 30 acre farm lias been made
by one of the most successful planters
in the Piedmont region and may he
found useful, although it should lie
modified to meet individual needs. Ten
acres in cotton, six acres in corn with
peas or velvet beans, eight acres in
wheat and oats, followed liy pea vine
hay and Lookout Mountain potatoes
one acre in sweet potatoes, two acres
in alfalfa, three acres in sorghum, tor
tal 30 acres.
*,.n ample number of hogs and a few
cattle should be carried on this farm
and for these a permanent bermuda
pasture should lie provided.
In order to light the boll weevil, all
cotton stalks should be destroyed—
turned under- —as soon as the cotton
is gathered and before the hatchings
of new weevils in the late fall. Lv
iv farmer should do this, as it does
not do much good for a few to do this
work while their neighbors let the wee
vils hatch out.
During tlie fall and winter destroy
ail cover in which weevils may lie hid
ing. burning ditch banks and margins
of woods and cleaning up around
stumps. Fodder and hay stacks should
not la* allowed to remain near cotton
Cotton should he liberally fertilized
with a quick acting fertilizer contain
ing about 50 pounds of available phos
phoric acid per acre. Where the weed
grows tall only a small amount of
ammonia should he used as it always
Early planting of approved varieties
of eotton with plenty of seed. The far
mer should save three bushels per acre
for seed, planting two bushels per acre
by April lth, in this section of the
state. The other bushel should lit* re
served for replanting purposes. Cmler
boll weevil conditions the lies! crops
lire made from early plantings.
Cotton should be left thick in the
drills. The distance should vary with
the heighth of the natural growth of
tiie plant, three inches or four indies
n and being too close as a minimum and
eight or tell inches as a maximum.
The question of poisoning for boll
weevils is still ill the experiment state
but it is believed that poisoning with
calcium arsenate helps some, espe
cially if done at the proper time un
der favorable conditions.
Everywhere every farmer and tenant
should raise an abundant supply of
food stuff, and this foodstuff Is* prop
erly conserved. The man with a crib
full of com and hay, a smoke house
full of incut and molasses, a hundred
bushels of sweet potatoes in a storage
house, and a garden full of vegetables,
with plenty of milk and butter cannot
