NEWNAN, GA., FRIDAY,
OCTOBER 21, 1921
Vol. 57—No. 3
We motored down to Senoia Monday
and observed the crops (or where crops
should have been) as we passed along
Unquestionably the present cotton crop
is the poorest that we have known since
3866. In that year the plant ran to
weed and shed its fruit, as it has done
this year. The corn crop failed iu 1806
also, and those able to buy it had to
pay $2 a bushel. The present corn crop
in Coweta is but little better than that
of 1866. Under these conditions the
farmer should need no persuasion to plant
more liberally of wheat and oats than
lie has ever done before. They will need
no urging to reduce their cotton acreage
their experience with the boll weevil this
year has taught them a lesson. On the
trip mentioned above we saw but one
open boR of cotton, nil other fields be
ing absolutely bare. We noted, how
ever, that a much larger acreage than
usual' had been planted in sweet pota
toes. This may prove to be one safe
crop that may be depended on in the fu
ture, and we trust will prove a profita
ble one. Anyhow, it is quite obvious
the farmers realize that the cotton crop
lias “done its do’’ and they are plowing
under the stalks preparatory to sowing
The rent question is- worrying land-
owners now, along with their other
troubles. It is difficult, if not well-
nigh impossible, to find a responsible
tenant who will agree to give a rent
(or cotton) note. The average renter
is insisting that the landlord share nil .
l ist's with him, as it would be foolish ‘
to promise cotton in payment of rent.
One landowner who has been renting
his farm for twelve bnles of cotton told
us a few days ago that the best offer
lie could get for the place next year
was two bales.
A lottou buyer remarked the other
day that he grew fat or lost flesh accord
ing to the fluctuation of the cotton mar
ket. As prices advanced he begun to
pick up, but got thin when the trend
was downward. Tiiis fairly describes the
emotions of moat of our farmer friends
