THE MONEY QUESTION.
Soma men have solved the problem.
Old Uncle Jack Rich has been living
in Butte county and on the same farm
for more than a quarter of a century,
He is illiterate and has but one rule
on finance which is “Get in more than
you pay out.” He never makes more
than three bales of cotton to the plow,
and has doubled hie real estate in the
last tea years.
Rev. J. G. Kimbell always makes
corn and peas, and such forage as he
needs at home and thousands of cot
ton, and he too gets in more than be
pays out. He has more than doubled
hie real estate within the past five
years and cauld buy one fifth of his
possessions every year it he was so
Mr. H. G. Asberry, who is compar
atively a young man, has more than
doubled his real estate, besides putting
several good houses on some of his
farms, in the last eight year*. He
makes all his farm supplies at home,
raises fine cattle and largo hogs, mak
ing great heaps of manure in hi* cow
and horse lots, ia addition to the com
mercial fartilizers he uses. He never
makes over seven bales to the horse.
All of the above gentlemen live on
adjoining lands in Butts county, and
are well known in our county as pub
lic spirited citizens, who build up
school houses and never have gny
business in oenrts except aa jurors.
