TO OUR PATRONS:
On account of the European War we find that the advance in potash is so great it is impossible
for us to maintain the high quality of our Georgia Belle brands of fertilizers without charging a
price which we consider excessive. In addition to this, we find many of our customers have deci
ded to use meal and acid and greatly reduce the cost of their fertilizer for this season. For these
reasons we have concluded it was advisable for us not to undertake to put out any substitute for
our well-established brands, and we are therefore not going to manufacture fertilizer this season.
We wish to thank every one of our customers who have given us their business in the past.
Being farmers ourselves, we are in a position to sympathize with our farmer friends, who no
doubt feel that their year’s work was a loss on account of the low price of cotton. We hope it will
teach each one of us a lesson, that we should make our living at home and use cotton as a surplus
We hope for an early cessation of war in Europe, and then in the early fall potash will be avail
able at a reasonable price and we will be in a position to continue to manufacture our well-known
brands of fertilizers. Yours very truly,

Fanil Demonstration Agent Appeals
Last year Coweta county secured a
farm demonstration agent who did
some splendid work for the farmers gen
erally. 1 refer to Mr. II. G. Wiley,
who iB now engaged in the same work
in Stephens county. The people of
Coweta were pleased with the demon
stration work last year and have decid
ed to carry it on this year by placing
me here as their agent. I want to say
through The Herald that 1 am here for
business. I am here to serve the far
mers, and ready and williug to do so at
any and all times. I want, to help make
the people of the county self-sustaining.
Coweta’s land is good, its climate is
good, its people are good, arid there is
no reason why it should he backward
along agricultural lines. On the contra
ry, there are reasons why it should lead
all other counties. Let everybody work
for the betterment of rural conditions,
and see if we can’t make Coweta the
banner county of the State. Most of
us already know that farm demonstra
tion work is purely co operative, so
that is one of the reasons why we make
an appeal for help and co-operation.
We must co-operate if we ever hope to
make a success of this or any other line
of work. The demonstration work will
he of benefit only to those who want it,
and who will not only carry it on on
their own farms, hut who will help to
spread the gospel of better farming and
rural improvement. Let’s talk it over
with our neighbors wherever we meet
them, determined to study our fuim
and its needs, and see if we can’t make
some improvement each year that will
mean something to us in the future.
Why not he real farmers instead of be
ing soil robbers? Farming vitally con
cerns us all —men and women, boy» and
girls. Farmers feed the world, and
when they make a failure we all suffer;
so let us all manifest greater interest,
in real farming this year. Let's see it
we can’t grow our home supplies for
both man and beast, and then grow all
the cotton we can. Hut first be sure
that we grow everything we want for
The demonstration work belongs to
us all. It belongs to the good women
and girls as well as to the men and
boys. Much good can be done by the
ladies if the men will only give them a
chance. Husbands and parents, won’t
you give your good wives and girls a
chance to help you pay, or keep down,
the grocery bill? If so, let them have
a good-sized home garden, and they will
show you what they can do. Let your
girl join the Girls’ Canning Club, and
see what she can make on just one-
tenth of an acre of ground. Help her
to grow these tomatoes andean them
for winter use. Let her help you feed
the family in this wuy; and then, too,
she will have a nice dish for her
“best fellow” when he comes. This
may seern a small part of the demon
stration work, but it is not. It is a
very important part of it. Just think
how many good vegetables can be grown
on a small plot of ground!—how much
a good garden is worth to a home!
Think of the good vegetables that can
be canned and pickled. Think how
much fruit can be saved in the
same way. This is what the canning
club work stands for. Now, don’t think
that your girl is not interested in this
work, for she is. I already have the
names of about forty girls who wish to
join the dub, and who want to make
the beHt out of it. So, you see, it is up
to the fathers and mothers to give them
a small plot of ground to help them to
help you feed the entire family, and at
the same time give the girl a chance to
be a winner of a prize ora free scholar
ship at the State College of Agriculture.
Her expenses will be paid from the
time she leaves home until she gets
back She will see something, and learn
something, that will beof benefit to her
in after life Give her a cnance this
year and see what she will do for you
and for herself.
I urn going to ask thr fathers to help
me in one other way, viz: Let your boy
join the Corn Club. Let him have just
one acre of ground and help him to
make the biggest yield of corn you ever
heard of. Give him a chance to be a
real farmer. Give him a chance to
place before other boys, other fathers,
and the community generally, an ex
ample of crop production under modern
scientific methods. Give him a chance
to meet with the future leaders of
Georgia at the State College of Agri
culture next January. 1 not only want
to ask the fathers for help with the
hoys’ and girls’ work, but I also ask
the teachers over the county to help in
this way. They can see the boys and
girls more than I, so I ask them to
please lend me their hearty co-operation
in this work.
Just one other thing I want to men
tion. One very important thing that the
demonstration work seeks to do is to
get the farmers to practice a system of
crop rotation. This is the only way we
can hope to maintain the fertility of
our soils, and at the same time increase
the crop yields. I want forty or fifty
farmers to start this system in a small
way this year, just to see what good a
change of crops on a given piece of
land will do. Let me help you on three
acres, if no more, and let’s see what we
can do for that piece of ground in three
years without additional fertilization.
Just let me know that you have the
three acres and I will come and see you
and help you arrange it. Now, let
about fifty farmers do this and wo will
show what can be done.
I would like to see every farmer in
the county on his farm right away,
hut that is impossible. I can’t get
around as fast as I would like to with
a horse and buggy. But remember
that I am here for service. Call when
you want me and I will do my best
to reach you.
Yours for service,
J. H. Blackwell,
Farm Demonstration Agent.
To the Housewife.
Madam, if your husband is like most
men he expects you to look after the
health of yourself and children. Coughs
and colds are the moBt common of the
minor ailments most likely to lead
to serious diseases. A child is much
more likely to contract diphtheria or
scarlet fever when it has a cold. If you
will inquire into the merits of the va
rious remedies that are recommended
for coughs and colds, you will find th it
Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy standB
high in the estimation of the people
who use it. It is prompt and effectual,
pleasant and safe to take, which are
qualities especially to he desired when
a medicine is intended for children. For
sale by all dealers.

The early fly’s the one to swat. It
comes before the weather’s hot, and
hits around and plies its legs, and lays
at least ten million eggs, and every egg
will bring a fly to drive us crazy by and
by. Oh, every fl« that 'scapes our swat
ters will have five million sons and
daughters, and countless first and sec
ond cousins, and aunts and uncles,
scores of dozens, and fifty-seven billion
nieces; so knock the blamed thing all to
pieces. And every niece and every
aunt—unless we swat them so they
can’t—will lay enough dodgasted eggs
to fill up ten live-gallon kegs, and all
theso eggs, ere summer (ties, will bring
forth twenty trillion dies. And thus it
June. So men and brothers, let us rise,
goes, an endless chain, bo all our swat
ting is in vain unless we do that swat
ting soon, in May-time and in early
gird up our loina and swat the flies!
And, sisters, leave your cozy bowers
where you have wasted golden hours,
and, with ardor in your souls, roll up
your sleeves and swat the Mies.
