again to the fact that this department
is prepared, the same as last year, to

year through the use of inoeulents
makes it really imperative that no far

Nevertheless, many good farmers now

When the final figures are in it will
be 9hown that Georgia has more nearly
lived at home than in any year in the
past fifty. Preliminary estimates of
the Federal Department of Agriculture
show that the State has produced 64,-
900,000 bushels of corn as against 56,-
000,000 in 1914; wheat, ;1.129,000 bushels
as compared with a crop of 1,694,000
last year, and 16,100,000 bushels of
oats as against 9,000,000 for 1914.

shows a ten per cent, increase over

to do. In this country, for instance,
we must not only get the betterments
of science actively in use on the farm,
but we must educate the children so
that they will become pleasantly aware
of the interest, realities and satisfac
tion of farm life. Herbert Quick has
made this point everlastingly clear in
his new book, “The Brown Mouse." It
ought to be read and pondered over by
most of those who have anything to do
with rurn! education. It is useless to
cry "back to the soil" to those who
have been steadily trained away from
it during eight or ten years of school
ing. Note, too, that the farmer can
ruin himself by doing a good :ob. If
the wheat-growers all took this sage
advice about getting a European yield
from each American acre, the price
would probably go to 60 cents a bushel.
The world-old war between the city
dweller’s cheap food and the farmer's
profitable crops must be brought to
some sort of a fair settlement. This

either end, but it has not been clearly

Commissioner Price calls attention to
the fact that while the department is
persistently urging farmers all over
Georgia to raise their own wheat and
eat home-made tlour, it is at the same
time seeking to protect all the people
of Georgia against bleached tlour—at
least to the extent of letting them
know just what they are eating.
t'nder this ruling every barrel, sack
or package of tlour offered for snie in
Georgia which is bleached by any pro
cess. or artificially matured, must have
stamped upon the package in capital
letters of solid type not less than one
inch in height the word “bi.kached."
Following this word in smaller type, if
desired, must be given the process, so
that the statement on the package must
read either "bleached electrically," or
"bleached by chlorine.”
Manufacturers and dealers in tlour

extension of time for conforming to

extension, and will use every effort to

market-controlled prices do not insure
this result. Whatever is necessary in
the way of joint action, Government
regulation, etc., will some day have to
be undertaken, and the generation
which combines this statesmanship with
proper rural education will very nearly
settle the farming question.
“Good-bye, Old Summer-time.”
.Sara Hcaumont Kennedy.
Yesterday, over the western hills,
the summer sun went down. The sea
son which three months ago we hailed
as the "good old summer-time” has
crystallized into a memory, a memory
that glorifies with the compelling touch
of ends attained and hopes achieved,
or shrivels and blisters under the
scourge of failure.
It came out of the eastern dawn—
this dead-and-gone summer—with roses
and bird-song, laughter and love, and
it slipped over the western horizon
empty-handed, for, one by one, it had
dropped its treasures as it journeyed.
And some of us caught the roses, and
some the thorns, and some learned the
bird-song and some held the empty nest
Some of us saw it go without regret-
nay, even with relief; and some of us
held yearningly and tenaciously to its
last golden hours; some of us will cov
er its exit with the lilies of gladness,
and some will hide its footprints under
I the rue of broken hearts.
All that is left of it now is the paling
| glow of the aftermath, the reflected
radiance of what was so recently a
splendor of sunshine and rainbow
tinted blossoms. Impartially it gave
of its warmth, its color, its perfume
its purple vintage: but with all too un
even balance did it weigh its favors of
joy and hope and happiness. But
! what is done, is done; and whether we
j have bound up full sheaves of its gol
den grain or been only gleaners in the
rilled fields, we look back to-day and
say, with that touch of sadness that
always comes with finality: "Good
bye, old summer-time, good-bye.”

When a neighbor tells us that he has
