McMullan Is Named
4 Hart Crop Observer
Appointment of Hon. W. B. Mc-
Mullan, of Hartwell, Ga., as crop ob
server in Hart county for the Sears-
Roebuck Agricultural Foundation In
dex, is announced from Chicago by
P. V. Ewing, director of research for
the Foundation and editor of The In
dex. He will form a link in the na
tion-wide chain of county agricul
r tural observers elected because of
' his first-hand knowledge of farming
conditions and his ability to' observe
these and intelligently interpret
The Index, to which the observer
from this county will contribute, is a
compilation of the monthly reports
of 3,650 observers in every section
of the country, and this number is
being added to steadily. All the
observers are practical, thinking,
farm-minded men, each chosen be
* cause of the opportunities he has to
observe the needs of agriculture in
his own locality and for his ability to
apply economic principles to current
farm problems. As a group, they
represent a cross-section of the
thoughts that hte man in the, furrow
is thinking, and their joint analysis
of existing agricultural conditions,
as expressed in The Index, is con
sidered a forward step in helping ag
riculture help itself.
Raising Poultry For
Money In Hart Co.
That there is money in raising
poultry was clearly shown at the
' meeting of the Kiwanis club last Fri
day, when County Agent C. A. Bry
ant, Prof. W. W. Thomas, of the
Mt. Olivet school, and Hon. W. B.
r McMullan had figures setting forth
Mr. Bryant told of the record Hart
county is making in the poultry in
dustry, and urged the raising of
• poultry as not merely a side issue
in Hart county but that we should
place it where it deserved to be, —
a real money “crop” the year ’round
and one that would bring hundreds
of thousands of dollars annually in
the county. He stressed the impor
* tance of diversification.
Mr. Thomas quoted some first-hand
figures that illustrated his remarks
most forcibly. He said that poultry
raising was of sufficient importance
to demand the attention of every
farm home in Hart county, stating
that we could, with the co-operation
of all, make this one project bring
into the county annually over sl,-
000,000 through the. sale of eggs and
I poultry. Proper feeding and care
' was stressed. He told of a neighbor
who had 15 hens and received no ;
eggs while he had 15 hens and re
ceived daily now 12 eggs.
Chairman of the Program Commit
tee W. S. Long then introduced Miss
Annie McLanahan, Hart county’s ef
ficient and most popular Home De
monstration Agent, who was accom
panied by Miss Epsie Campbell, of
the home vocational work, State Col
-4 lege of Agriculture. Both made short
~ though very interesting talks to the
Mr. McMuullan told of a proposed
poultry exposition for the counties
of this section of Georgia to be held
in Hartwell sotpe time this fall, de
tails of which are being worked out.
It is fitting that such an exposition
be held here since Hart county is
now producing and selling more poul
try and eggs than any other north
east Georgia county.

OVER THE WORLD SAYS
London, Sept. 18.—Everyone is
warned by the spirit world through
medium of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
that a great catastrophe hangs over
the world. Sir Arthur says he has
■ been receiving messages from the
spirit world for the last three years
to this effect and that lately they
have become so pressing he feels it
necessary to make them public. He
asserts that the suffering and de
struction which will result are to be
taken as a chastenting for the evils
of today. Only through this man
ner can the world be saved.
The nature of the impending cat
astrophe that Sir Arthur is unable to
specify but he says that the chas
tening will last three years.
“The world has grown far too ma
terial. We must be taught that life
has a spiritual and not a material
purpose,” he said. Sir Arthur de
clares that England will escape from
the catastrophe more lightly than
almost any other nation. Why, he
does not say.
The tax books for Hart county are
open at the Court House and those
who wish to pay their 1925 State
and County taxes may do so.
The levy for the year is appearing
in The Sun at this time, as fixed by
the Board of Commissioners. The
rate is slightly lower than for 1924.
Tax Collector Joe Whitworth states
that he has the receipts filled out
for every taxpayer in the county and
will be glad to turn them over to
said taxpayers upon payment in full.
The county officials will appreciate
the prompt payment of taxes this
year by all who can possibly do so.

L. S. BROWN WANTS TO BEGIN
WORK ON ROADS WITH AS
MUCH SPEED AS IS
Hartwell, Ga., Sept. 22, 1925
Editors of The Sun:—There is a
great deal being said now about
Bonds to work the roads of the
county; some say they don’t know
whether they will vote for or
NOW, I AM FOR BONDS, and I
suggest that the Board of Finance i
plan to begin work on the roads not i
later than the 20th of October, if
the bonds carry; if they don’t carry i
the plans can be called off. Appoint I
three men in each Militia District, of j
which we have eight. We have four
members on the Board besides the
chairman; let each of the four have
two districts under his supervision
and to visit the roads each week until
the work is completed, and not allow
this work to go on after March Ist,
unless upon consent of the three men
in each Militia District and of the
Commissioner to whom they report.
I want bonds and want good roads,
and want work to begin as soon as
it possibly can. If we wait until
we vote on bonds and sell them it
will be 1926 and we all know it is
hard to work roads in the winter.
I think if you will follow this plan
and let the people know how the
program is to be carried out our
splendid Hart county people will vote
If we don’t give the farmers work
to do they will go somewhere else
to work and you can’t blame them.
They are leaving now and if they all
leave who will work our farms?
Let’s vote for bonds and BEGIN
THE WORK AT ONCE.
L. S. BROWN.
BONDS FOR ROADS
The amount of funds available for
road improvement in Hart county
does not justify a very extensive pro
gram of expensive roads.
We cannot build a good road in any
community without taking funds that
justly belong to some other com
It is necessary to either increase
the amount of revenue by at least
two hundred per cent, or give up the
idea of building many more roads.
Good roads are very desirable and
are worth all they cost to any com
munity. There can be nothing fair
er than a system of allotting the
funds to each section. A certain
amount of funds allotted to each dis
trict with a reserve fund for equaliz
ing the distribution is very fair.
Along with the equalization of the
bond money we should have a guar
antee of the same equalization of
the county funds, gasoline tax and
the convicts. There is nothing that
carries a guarantee of fairness ex
cept a straightforward system of al- j
lotment and distribution. Should we
fail to carry bonds in Hart county,
we should have an allotment made 1
of the limited funds that we do have i
and distribution made to each dis
trict in Hart county. Nothing would
inspire confidence anj’ more than a
guarantee to each district in Hart
county that each and all of us would
get our share of funds. A certain
amount of county funds and the gaso
line tax should be allotted each year
to paving, a certain amount to road
construction and a certain amount to
general maintenance of all the roads.
When one section has spent all that
was allotted for any given year, then
be patient enough to wait. If bonds
are voted without a definite under-

A large audience heard Hon. J. Ed

Mr. Conwell’s speech was very

throughout. He reviewed the his

telling of the great work already ac
complished; telling of the relief given
the south Georgia farmers in 1923,
and of how they propose aiding the
farmers of the drouth-stricken area.

the foreign spinners in an effort to

Tampa., Fla., Sept. 13, 1925.
Editors The Sun: —After a short,
delightful, painful visit to dear old
Hart lam at home. It was indeed a
pleasure to shake hands with so
many of my old friends once more.
But my feelings were anything but
pleasant when I found after visiting
four sections of your county that
conditions were even worse than I
expected to find, and I say to you
frankly that the situation demands
immediate action on the part of the
people in Hart as well as every other
county in the drouth-stricken district.
It is so serious that it should receive
the consideration of those who have
been so wonderfully blessed with
good crops in south Georgia. If I I
were Georgia’s governor I would at
once convene the Legislature in extra
session for the single purpose of au
thorizing the issue of road bonds not 1
less than 50,000,000 every dollar to
be expended in the drouth-stricken
district. Add to this the amount due
from the federal government and cal- ,
culate if you can, but you can’t, for
no man can even estimate the benefits
to be derived from the expenditure
of this money among a people who ,
are certain to suffer if relief does not
come in some way, and must come
at once. If the State should issue I
bonds it would demonstrate to the |
world how an enlightened people can 1
meet, and change into a blessing,
what now leemi to be the greatest
calamity that ever happened to the ;
State. Yes, I mean exactly what I
say: If this awful drouth should be
the cause of an issue of .fifty to one
hundred million dollars bonds for
the building of roads it would not
only bring relief to those who other-

; Prices May Be Even Better Than
September Car Brought Bring
Them To Hartwell Early Oct. 1
The car-lot poultry sale will be
held in Hartwell Thursday, October
Ist. We have just received definite
i information as to the date of the sale.
The sale will open at 7 o’clock, A.
! M., and close at 10 o’clock, A. M.,
I which will give three hours for the
sale. So please have your poultry
i on hand early and avoid the rush of
' the lust hour.
Just at this season it is advisable
i to cull the farm Hock carefully. Sell
off the undesirable birds and those
that do not promise to pay a profit.
With the monthly co-operative sales
it affords you an opportunity to dis
pose of the surplus poultry at the
best possible advantage. In view of
the fact that Hart county is harvest
ing the shortest crop in her history it
should behoove every farmer to make
just a little stronger effort to in
crease the surplus in the poultry in
dustry. It is true that the returns
from it are small but they are steady
You will recall that the prices re
ceived for the September sale were
25c per pound for fryers, 20c per
pound for hens, and 10c per pound
for roosters. And as yet we have
received no information as to what
prices will be for the October sale
but indications are that they will
be higher. We hope to have prices
at least one or two days in advance
of the sale and will notify as many
of the people of the county as possi
ble by telephone and otherwise. Re
member the date, Thursday, October
