Vol. 50—No. 28 Buy at Home; Georgia Products There has been so much talk about practicing economy by buying at home, using Georgia products, thereby creating a home market for your grains, etc., we beg to advise that we are in po sition to furnish you with one of the best balanced feeds on the market, made from home-grown products. If your merchant does not handle our feed you can buy direct from us at following prices— McBride’s Ground Grain Molasses Feed, $1.60 per 100 pounds. McBride’s Alfalfa Molasses Feed - - - $1.70 per 100 pounds. The analysis of our ground feed is as follows: Protein, 9.29; fat, 3.78; fiber, 5.80; carbohydrates, 61.17. cent, of fiber (fiber is filler) in our feed and compare with some of the other feeds offered for sale. Why throw away 30 per cent, of your feed when you can bring your corn to us in shuck and after all (you furnishing bags) you will have 2 1 per cent, more and better feed. This feed will contain molasses to make it dustless and well balanced lor hard worked stock. If you will stop and consider what your feed is costing you, basing corn at $1 per bushel, you will find that you are paying $35.72 per ton. Oats at 75c per bushel, you are paying $46.87 per ton. By having it ground it will reduce the price $6.54 per ton and in addition have a much better feed. Won’t this saving of $6.54 per ton be good pay lor bringing 25 bushels of corn to us for grinding into feed? For your information we give analysis of cobs and shucks after being ground: Cobs, protein 2.4, fat .5, carbohydrates 54.9. Shucks, protein 2.5, fat .7, carbohydrates 28.3. This is also a very superior feed for dairy cows. When you harvest your oats don’t thresh them, but have them ground, straw and all, into feed. This will save the expense of threshing. You can cut your oats high, leaving a high stubble lor improvement of your land and at same time reduce the straw which will improve the feed. This with molasses will make an ideal feed for your stock. This is an age lor economy, and Note the low per expenses are paid by utilizing all your products you will solve the feed problem.

A SONG OF TRUST. I cannot always seu the way that leads to heights ahove;— I sometimes quite forget that lie loads on with hands of love; But yet 1 lenow the paths must load me to Imman- u* l’s land. And when I roach life's summit I shall know and understand. I cannot always trace the onward course my ship must take, But looking backward I behold afar the shining wake Illumined with God's light of love; and so I on ward go. In perfect trust that He who holds the helm the chart must know. I cannot always see the plan on which He builds my life; For c. : t the sound of hammers, blow on blow, the noise of st rife. Confuse me til! I quite forgot He knows and over- seeB, And that in all details with IIi« good plan rny life agrees. I cannot always know and under-'and the Mas ter’s rule; I cannot always do the tasks He gives in life’s hard school; But. i am learning, with Ilia help, to solve them one by one. And, when I cannot understand, to say, "Thy will ho done.’’ Trying to Fool the Fanner. Macori Telegraph. The recent rise in cotton on the New York exchange, with corresponding slight advances in the spot markets throughout the South, is the most sus picious occurrence noted in months. The sinister angle of it is that this ad vance comes just before the Southern farmer i3 getting ready to pitch hiB crops. There is no real reason or excuse for cotton going up. Rather, it ought to be going d’ wn and hitting low levels now, with millions of bales unsold and with no prospect of being sold. I idustrial conditioiic are such that spot cotton cannot be in any great demand any where. England and the United States are alone in the manufacture of cotton goods in the entire world at this time and England is buying far far below her usual amount In all rhyme and reaso:,, as the time for the new crop ap proaches the price should he falling lower and lower. If the price of cot ton were determined at this time on its actual v..!u“ according to the law of supply and demand, it should he selling at around six cents a pound. And yet futures in New York are skirting the ten-cent mark! There is only one explanation of this, which is no mystery to the man who knows markets, and that is a simple one. There can be no doubt but that the price is • nine deliberately in flated or, it x •hang- ck-d by the big spinning n' po ’ UM g interests, just when the Urm-r getting ready to lay out his land for planting, so that increased acreage may be stimulated. If the spinners and speculators —the latter of the sort who can buy cotton and hold it indefinitely—can get even a ten-miilion-bale crop from the South this year, cotton will go to four and five cents next October. And it won’t get stronger for some time afterward, war or no war. Here will come the opportunity for the spinner and the spinner’s huying agent to lay in cotton at about one-third a fair price for it, and enough of it to keep the mills run ning long enough to declare enormous dividends. They are trying to goldbrick and humbug the farmer. It has been often done from New York. Every time there seems to be an indication of acreage reduction along comes the New York exchange just before plant ing time and Bends the price up a few notches through the simple expedient of its members huying and Relllng from each other in public, with more huying than selling, and getting out from un der after the exchange closes each day. This is precisely what it is doing now. Given the prospect, fictitious or other wise, of enough price for cotton in the fall to pay his debts, and the average two-horse farmer, who produces nearly all Lite cotton, will plant nothing else. This is known by the spinners, for whose benefit the cotton exchanges, in the last analysis, are run. So we have ten-cent cotton again at planting time. Ten-cent cotton with the greatest war in the world on—with millions of halos unsold because there is no de mand, or likelihood of a demand for the staple—with the acreage reductionists declaring that the prospects are, de spite all their efforts, that too much cotton is going to be planted this sum mer again—with all these, cotton goes to ten cents on future deliveries! Mar velous! Every farmer should be warned of It is done Himply for its moral effect. And it is having its effect. The Tele graph learns that a good many farmers huve perked up and fallen for the “hunk” of the spinners. They are talking already of going pretty well in for a sizeable cotton crop. It is utter foil} We have gotten through thiB one winter. What an other one like it will do no man can say. It must not be. The cotton crop must be slashed all to pieces this sum mer, no matter to what attitude the exchanges hoist future prices. Every newspaper in the South should raise its voice in decided warning—and raise it loudly and long. Warns Planters. Max B. Wellborn, head of the At lanta Federal Reserve Bank, who was the honor guest at a banquet given by the bankers of group three at the Alabama Hotel, in Anniston, last week, stated in an interview in his homo paper that the increase in the price of cotton within the past few weeks is due to reduced sales of fertilizer, and the expressed determination of the cotton planters to curtail the acreage this year. "While every man who is really con cerned and interested in the welfare of the South is delighted to Hee the value of our great staple approaching nor mal,” said Mr. Wellborn, “there is an opportunity in the present favorable condition for some of the planters to do much harm by departing from their formed determination to plant less cot ton than in the past. The planters have won a victory already,” continued the banker, "in that they have slowly forced the price of cotton up. The price is still far below what it ought to be, of course, hut it will continue to rise juBt as surely as the planter ad heres to the policy of curtailed acreage, and puts into practice the doctrine of diversified farming. I am a farmer myself, and I will plant only fifty per cent, of the acreage which I have in the past given to cotton.” Nothing So Good for a Cough 01 Cold When you have a cold you want the best medicine obtainable, so as to get rid of it with the least possible delay.

It is a price fixed out of all reason, and does not mean a thing in the world. Use of Cotton in War. This interesting information concern ing cotton and explosives comes by way of the Philadelphia Record: "In ordinary years the powder plants of this country turn out 10,000,000 pounds of smokeless powder, in the manufac ture of which they would consume 20,- 000 bales of cotton lint. Owing to the enormous demand for explosives in Europe, the productive capacity of the Dupont works alone has been increased to 10 or 12 times the normal total capa city of all American powder mills. Ger many, France and Russia use cotton lint almost exclusively in the produc tion of their smokeless power; and, al though the other nations employ picric acid and coal-tur products in larger measure, all UBe guncotton to some ex tent. The estimate that 1,200,000 bales of cotton will be turned into explosives this year seems moderate. This may explain the unexpectedly large export demand, which will probably approxi mate 7,500,000 or 8,000,000 bales, in spile of the great curtailment in the cotton manufacturing industries of Europe consequent upon the war. The fifty-seven warships in the Dardanelles are ‘burning up cotton' at a monstrous rate. A 12-inch gun uses 300 pounds of powder per shot, and it is theoreti cally possible for a battleship to use from 5,000 to 0,000 pounds of powder (or 10 to 12 bales of cotton) a minute by firing all its guns.
