THE HOG AS A SOURCE OF
REVENUE FOR .COWETA COUNTY—
With tho lessening, of our income from
til© cotton crop, duo‘to tho inroads of
tho boll weevil and tho unsatisfactory
price, farmers nro turning in ovory di
rection mol looking for new sources of
revenue. In iny judgment tho hog as a
money-hringcr is one source of revenue
we cannot afford to overlook.
Ill tho first place, if wo will rniso tho
hogs we rail turn them into money. Dur
ing tho winter there is a considerable de
mand for dressed hogs by the local mar
kets, nnd to a certain extent throughout
the year. Hut. of course they cannot use
nil our product—especially if we increase
it considerably. Hut, there is always a
demand for hogs by the packing houses
and a mnrkot, price for hogs jUBt ns there
is for cotton, and we can market our
hogs whenever there is a car-load to sell.
Arrangements have been mado so that
we know wo will have a solo about May
1, 1922, ami this Hummer's pigs can be
gotten ready by that time. It seems to
mo that tho farmer who neglects tills
opportunity to add to his revenue js
standing in his own light,
Another item in favor of,the hog as
oao of our supplopiontnry money crops
is tho fact that ho can ho made to util
ise waste products and turn thorn into
money for us. Qur surplus corn which
we frequently koop over till rats or woo-
vils eat it, our cull potntoos which if put
on tho market will bring down the price
of good onos wo lmvo to sell, waste mel
ons and fruit mill garden truck, all will
help to grow a hog, and through him can
bo turned into money. <
Now ip tho time to plant winter graft
ing crops for your hogs. On rich land
rape can ho grown profitably, and If you
cannot, fence It- in it cun bo cut and
thrown over to your hogs- It Is ula^
time now to plant rye for bog grafting
For grazing in the early spring burr
mid crimson clover give excellent returns,
the former of which should be planted
at once and tho latter next month.
I sometimes hear men complaining that
they do not know whoro they cun get the
inuuc.v to pay their taxes this winter.
Now I believe that ami gaud hog to the
pl,,\f would pay the taxes of Coweta
count,v, and a good Juno or duly pig, if
fed all tho waste-food nml food of one
hind or another, with snmo grain and
s iur milk nr tankage, could he made to
weigh 200 pinitiils by .Ian. 1.
Let us iiinko the hog innlro up for

IS' YOUR CHILD
If tho average parent wore asked the
direct question ns to whether or not his
children wore physically sound, it is safe
to assume that the majority would an
swer, “Why, I certainly hope so,” which
would really ha nil ovnsioa of tlio_ main
question, for when wo considor that of
the 22,000,000 children in the schools of
tlm United States Homo 10,000,000, or
considerably more than half of them,
have ono or more physical defects, the
condition of any individual child might
well remain doubtful.
For tills reason there linn been estab
lished in many places n careful system

FARMER’S PROBLEMS- ARE NOT
I can’t get interested in tho fanner.
Why should 11 Why all this hullabaloo
about tho farmer and his troubles.’ If
he wants to farm, lot him, If be doesn’t,
bo win quit.”
Thus snys the city man to hinigelf.
The city half of America cares very
little how the country half lives. Hut
the city half cores immensely how the
,-itv half lives. Ami if the Country half
docs net find it possible to live decently,
then its members will quit farming iu
such numbers thnt present prices of food
and clothing will seem merely a jnhe
compared with the prices thnt will stare
us ill the face if thnt ever happens.
Ho the question is not “Do you core
wluit happens to tlm farmer?” but “Do
you rare wlmt-you hnvo to pay for v.hat.
you eat anil wear?” •
' Farming today is being transformed
from a home-ranking' occupation, produ
cing’a cheap surplus of food, into the
greatest and most important national in
dustry thnt we have—our basic supply of
food and clothes.
Land is no longer clienp, plentiful, and
naturally fertile. Farming men nnd wo
men nro no longer willing to break tlicir
bucks nml spirits, or to supply themselves
with cheap help by breaking tins backs
and spirits of large families of children.
Yon cannot blame them.
Tlio only thing to do, if the city is to
he clothed and fed, is to help tlio
country half put farming on a money
making basis. Most of this problem
falls where it should—on" the farmer
himself. He ims made more tlma a bo-
ginning. The principal help we can give
him is to show a little common sense un
derstanding of what ho is up aguinBt.
It will help if legislators remember
that nil tlie Government can do for the
farmer is to see that ho 1ms fair trade
and co-operative organization conditions
under which to manage his affairs.
It will help if financiers remember
that all financiers enn do for the farmer
is to, son that he lias needed'credit facil
ities with which successfully to finance
It will help if transportation systems
remember that all tlioy can do is to see
that lie gets a square deal in tho matter
of freight rates,
It .will help if manufacturers and dis
tributors will seo that tlie cost of-process-
ing nnd handling between farmer and
consumer is minimized, so that consumers
eon buy food nml clothes out of wages
been 100 per cent, higher than in pre-
wur times. These cobIs have not been
pnsseii on entirely to .the consumer, but
have been deducted in part at least front
tlie farmers’ quoted prices. These de
ductions lmvo unquestionably been tlie
greatest' demoralizing force which the
farmer hns had to meet during the past
fifteen months. ' ■' .
Tho farmer hns been forced to pay
for the tilings lie buys ’from flic 1 sale of
raw products that ure bringing him nl-
moBt pre-war prices.
An example; It takes 300.pounds of
Wool, at present quotations, or tho clip
of forty sheep, to buy an ordinary suit
of clothes. To get a pair of ordinary
dress bIioob tlie farmer has, to hand over
the money income from tho sale of ten

cotton will purchase only an ordinary
No fair-minded funner will deny thnt
certain margins above bundling charges

tlio present one presents itself it is little
wonder that tlio farmer is getting inter
ested in eo-operntive mufkotlng,< The
American Fnrin^pureau Federation mid
other powerful,groups of farmers have
organized to meet tho emergency by
shortening thewrouto from tlie producer
to tlio consumer, -They are not planning
to eliminate useful machinery, but they
do intend to eliminate tlie parasitic
'growths that now exist along the Hales
Let these organizations realize that
the 'farmer is not a merchant, but a pro
ducer, and much good will result. «

the vast multitudes of failures.
Colds & 'Headache
“For years have used Black-Draught in our family,
and I have never found any medicine that could' take its
place,” writes Mr. H. A. Stacy, of Bradyville.Tetin. Mr. Sta
cy, who is a Rutherford County farmer,' recommends Black-
Draught as a medicine that should be kept in every house
hold for use in the prompt treatment of many little ills to pre
vent them from developing into serious 1 troubles.
Lot them bo’ managed by men w'I^iho
business experience and ' knowledge of
markets will prevent the disastrous fail
ures that always accompany co-operative
buying and selling, when business judg
ment is absent.
And, finally, let tho city man realize
that the gears of industry and of agri
culture have to mesh. For at bottom the
solution of tlie farmers’ producing and
soiling problem is tho solution of your
own food nml clothing problem.
RAILROADS MUST CUT RATES.
Washington, Aug. .18.—Railroads must
share with the fanners and others the
burden of the presont economic situation
by reducing freight rates, Secretary Wal
lace said today before the Inuterstato
Commerce Commission, which is investi
gating fates on grain'and liny.

to process the farmer’s products and sell

those patents _lho need for immediate
attention to the conditions noted on tho
card. In ninny instuncos this will bo a
simpio matter; but., again, there will ho
a grbhp of parents who Hud it difficult
to realize that tlicir child who seems so
well ronlly 1ms any such condition ns
enlarged tafnsils and adenoids, which ex-'
pose him to Infection not only' from die-
on so germs from without, but' from 'thb
constant absorption ol' germ products in
tlie system. For instance, in the general
examination of school . children somo
ten million were found to bo suffering
from somo' form of tubercular infection,
and when wo couple-with,this tho furthor
foot that in the examination of 100 ton
sils romovod in olio school throe-fourths
of them wore found to be infected witli
tlio germ of tuberculosis, it will nob bo
Irani to uniloratnnd why onjiirgcd tonsils
and uderioids should be removed.. There
are many other ill's caused by these con
ditions. . .
Again, the physical cxiuiririntibn of
school oUildron will reveal; whether tho
child weighs enough to support his
height, thus determining \ybothor or riot
it is properly nourished; whother tho
Vhild.'is mentally equal, to normal chil
dren of tho fltmfe age; whether its activ

what they should bo for a normal child.
