FARMER. CONSIDER YOUR FEED DILL!
Why throw away 30 per cent, of your feed when you can bring your corn to us in the shuck,
and after all expenses are paid (you furnishing bags) you will have 21 per cent, more and better
feed. This feed will contain molasses, to make it dustless and well-balanced for heavy-worked
stock. If you will stop and consider what your feed is now costing you, basing corn at $1 per
bushel, you will find that it is costing you $35.72 per ton. By having it ground it will reduce the
price $6.54 per ton, and, in addition, give you a better feed.
Won’t this saving of $6.54 be good pay for bringing 25 bushels of corn to us for grinding into
feed? This is also a very superior feed for dairy cows.
For your information we give the analysis of cobs and shucks when ground:
All we ask is a trial.
Yours very truly,
McBride Grain and Feed Company
Attention, Mr. Fanner!
You can have this Bull Gas Tractor this spring and save you from
having to buy high-priced mules. This tractor is designed especially
for small farms ranging from 80 acres and upwards. It will take the
place of five good mules, and can go day and night. Once the guide-
wheel enters the furrow a 16-year-old girl can operate it successfully.
What This Wonderful Machine Does
It delivers 12 horse-power at the belt and 5 horse-power at the
draw-bar, and will actually do the daily work of five horses or mules.
Never gets tired. Travels faster than horses, and eats only when it
works.” Pulls plows, seeders, harvesters, molvers, drills, threshing
machines, grinds feed, saws wood, and does any stationary belt work.
Write to-day for further information, and if you want this Bull
small farm tractor for spring work your order should be placed now

THE HILLS OF FAITH.
Oh, the Hills of Faith in their g-owna of Rreen
That smile at an April sun.
Are the hills of life, when the imps of strife
Are dead to their deeds undone:—
They rise from the j?ray of yesterdays.
And, living: the dreams of Youth,
They tfive to the soul in quest of a goal
Hope, and the courage of Truth.
Oh. the Hills of Faith, in their robes of brown,
That croon with the close of day.
Are the hills that thrill through every ill
in trust of an endless May; —
For the Hills of Faith are boundless in scope—
They live, and with strength sublime
To guide hearts that stand in each dreary lane.
And shuli through the years of time.
Oh. the Hills of Faith in their shawls of white
That look on a sensate sky.
Are the hills that call, e'en through Fate’s dark
To the heights that never die;
For the Hills of Faith are Temples of God,
Built high on this cold earth's breast.
”'here the weary may, at the end of day.
Find love and eternal rest. —John Scott.

It brings sadness merely to suggest
that the twenty-fifth annual reunion of
Confederate veterans, to be held this
year at Richmond, may be their last
great gathering. It will soon be a half
century since the last shot of the War
Between the States was fired. April
9th of this year will be the fiftieth an
niversary of the surrender of General
Fifty years is more than the average
lifetime, it is but twenty years less
than the proverbial threescore years
and ten, and since most of the soldiers
of the Confederate armies were at
least within two or three years of their
twentieth birthday when they went to
the war, it is plain that the veterrns
soon will be very few.
And yet the South does not like to
look forward to the time when they
will be so few that the great annual
reunion cannot be held, when the pa
rade of the old men in gray will be par
ticipated in by but a handful. The
veterans themselves face the future as
gamely as they faced the armies of the
North. They were ready to die for the
South fifty years ago, and are glad of
the added half-ceniury of life that haB
been theirs. Their steps may be slow
er, their carriage leBS erect, but the
Bame old fire is in the eyes of the sur
vivors as one by one their comrades
drop out of the ranks.
The last great reunion! Whether it
be this year or next year, or ten years
hence, it will be a sad aB well as a
pleasant meeting. The armies of the
sixties melted into carps, the corps
shrunk into divisions, the divisions gave
place to brigades, and now the brigades
are reduced to the size of regiments.
Soon there will be but companies left,
and as the ranks thin and are closed up
the once great armed strength of the
Confederacy will be but a short line of
men, all old, all still brave, all ready
for the call that will leave behind them
not one comrade, but only the memory
of them, which their Bons and daugh
ters will keep ever green.

The Cotton Acreage and Fertilizer,
There is a wide difference in the views
expressed by leading farmers as to the
best method to be employed this year,
as related to the cotton acreage and the
use of fertilizers. Some farmers open
ly advocate the policy of using no com
mercial fertilizers under the cotton
crop for this year. They believe this is
the shortest and surest route to a re
duction in the acreage.
Another class, equally as intelligent
and honest in conviction, favor a slight
reduction in the acreage, and the yse of
something like half the amount of fer
tilizers formerly used. They contend
that, owing to the drouth of last sum
mer, the plant did not take up the plant
food in the soil, and that much of this
will be available this year. It seems to
be the policy of this class to make a
slight reduction in acreage, and an ap
preciable reduction in the use of com
Another class advocates cutting the
acreage fully fifty per cent, and using
an ample supply of commercial fertili
zers. This plan, they say, offers the
best solution of the problem.
In the meantime, while no price has
been fixed on fertilizers for the present
year, it is stated by some who are in
position to know that the price will be
increased over the ruling price that has
existed for several years. The manu
facturers claim that since the quantity
used will certainly be curtailed, it wilt
cost them more to keep their plant and
force going than it would if sales were
normal. If it develops that the price is
increased, this fact would result in a
further decrease in the use of fertili
zers, and a reduction in acreage.
Thus it will be seen that there are
numbers of angles to the present situa
tion. as related to the cotton acreage
for the incoming crop.
