Seed Irish potatoes from almost
any section of the country well
apapted to the crop may be planted
in Georgia with good hesults so long
as a disease free, prolific strain of
good variety has been sleeted.
The Georgia Experiment Station
has, for a number of years grown
Irish potatoes, the seeds tubers of
which came from several different
sections of this country as well as
from Canada. The data, as a whole,
indicates very clearly that the kind
and amountof disease infliction car
ried in the seed tubers has a greater
influence on the yield than does the
section of the country in which the
seed potatoes were grown.
A few examples are here given for
one year which was very unfavor
able for Irish potatoes.
Maryland, Irish cobbler, certified
seed, 78 bushles per acre.
Virginia, Irish Cobbler, second
crop seed, 43.
Maine, Irish Cobbler, 62.
.Maine, Bliqs, 47.
Arkansas, Bliss, certified seed, 47
Virginia, Bliss, second crop seed,
The following year was more fav
arable to Irish potatoes, as indicated
by the following yields from dif
Wisconsin, Bliss, certified seed,
120 bushels per acre.
Canada, Bliss, 103 bushels acre.
Georgia, Irish Cobbler, 116 bush
els per acre.
Virginia, "Irish Cobbler, 115 bu
shels per acre.
Canada, Irish Cobbler 116 bushels
Georgia, Green Mountain. 124
bushels pre acre.
The mosaic diease is one of the
troublesome diseases of the Irish po
tato. This disease is carried in the
seed tubers and can be controlled
only by selecting disease free
plants in the field. The Red Bliss or
Triumph, so commonly grown for
the early crop is especially suscep
tible to the mosaic disease. An in
spection of the tubers does not dis
close the presence of the disease,
and growers have to depend upon
the reliability of the seed growers
and the dealers. In some states the
growers, who make a specialty of
growing disease free seed potatoes,
have their fields inspected by cap
able state officials who issue cer
tificates to growers of disease free
seed stock. Such seed potatoes are
thus sold as certified stock which
usually command a premium o v er
ordinary or commercial seed pota
ttoes. Certified seed potatoes do not
always give larger yields than com
mon seed stock, just as a registered
dairy cow may not give more milk
than a common grade cow. How
ever, the certified seed potatoes will
generally produce the best results.

BOY, TAKING BIBLE
OFF HIS HAND
Locust Grove, Ga.—Having fol
lowed literal! thescriptural injuction
that “if thyright hand offended thee,
cut it off,” Herbert Little, 19 year
old youth, Friday was recovering
from his wound and the loss of
blood at his home about three miles
from here. He hacked at his arm
nine times, he said, and when he
came running to his parents late
Wednesday night, his hand was hang'
ing only by a thread of skin, and
there was nothing for the doctors to
do but finish the amputation.
Althoughthe agony he was suffer
ing was plainly written on his face
as he revealed what he had done
and he lost consciousness from loss
of blood while the doctors were
Working on his arm, at no time did
he express any regret for what he
had done, nor would he tell in what
respect his hand had offended. He
intimated that he might tell when
he gets well.
His parents, Mr and Mrs. H. H.
Little, had not thought of the boy’s
mind being affected before he cut off
his hand, but it is now recalled that
he had been acting in a peculiar
recent rough weather he would not
go anywhere without carrying his
Bible along, and it is said that he
sought to be alone, preferring soli
tude along tile lonely roads to com
painoship with his friends.

school. One of his uncles is ?heriff
of the county, and his family is well

MUST GRAZE ON
Atlanta, Ga., Mar«h 27.—-The grow
ing interest in dairying in Georgia
which, livestock meti here say, is al
ready resulting in an improvement of
dairy stock and in the adding of dairy
equipment on many farms, has em
phasized the necessity for suitable
and ample pOsturagff for the dairy
stock. Good pastures are a necessity
if the cows are to be given the chance
they should have to produce rich
milk abundantly, according to offi
cials of the Georgia department of
The need for good pastures is
urged by state agricultural depart
ment officials in commenting on the
incre&sed interest in dairying.
Pasturage is a feature of dairying
that should not be overlooked in the
opinion of everts of the state de
partment of agriculture. Cattle that
are denied good grating ground are
forced to nibble on such grasp as they
can find, agricultural department offi
cials say, cannot be expected to pay
their way as well as cows that are
grazed in fields where the grass is
suitable and plentiful, where there is
a good place for them to stand under.
It is as necessary that dairy cows
should have good pasturage as it is
that they should have suitable shelter
from severe weather in the winter
time, department officials stated.
The tickets will be restricted to five
or more persons, with a final limit of
twenty-one days, including the date

Farmer’s Business Outlook Is Bettep
Declaring that the holiness outlook
for the farmer was never so good as
it is today, Hon. J. J. J3rown, Geor
gia’s commissioner of agriculture, to
day pointed out some of the factors
that lead to this opinion. Principal
among these is the fact that hun
dreds of thousands of people are now
employed -in ■ the Various • industrial
plants of the country, and that the
last decade has witnessed an enor
mous increase* in the number of
workers. None of them are produc
ing things to eat, the commissioner
says, and since they must be fed the
folk who p- .iduce the food should en
joy a good business.
Demand, Mr Brown shows, is cer
tainly the basis for profitable busi
ness of any kind, and there is no
doubt, he points out, the number of
people who are merely consumers
and not producers in so far as food is
concerned, is increasing at a rapid
rate In all reason, therefore, Com
nflksioner Brown, as well as other
agricultural experts, say it looks as
if the farmer’s business should con
tinue. to grow more and more profit
But, on the other hand, the com
missioner says, one continually hears
the complaint that the farmer is not
getting the prices he should, and that
he is having a hard time to make
ends meet, and at best enjoying mere
ly a competence and that he is far
from reaching the pot of gold that
lies at the end of the rainbow. And
there is much foundation for these
statements, Commissioner Brown
says. In this connection he points to
the value of marketing associations
and as they are perfected the farmer
will soon be able to get good prices
for his products.

S4OO worth of the rarest cham
pagne. In fact it was so rare that
the well known Athenians who
bought it “slight unseen”are rearin’
now because it won’t come.
The man suffers the heaviest loss
as a result of the visit of Mr. Haas
originally bought only SSO worth
of champagne. Where he fell was
in indorsing the check for $350 as
accommodation to Mr. Haas. The
check was turned down.
Mr. Haas sold one Athenian, a
well known member of the ycunger
business set, $350 worth of cam

and ordered his bank to refuse to
honor the check. In the meantime
Mr. Haas sold SSO worth to another

j HOW ABOUT FEED
CROPS FOR 1924?
For more than a quarter of a
century the writer has been able at
the beginning of each year to can
didly state, ‘“ftiis is one year when
the farmer cannot afford to fail to
grow all the feeds required to feed
well all the livestock on the farm.”
And we have said and written this
plain truth, year after year, with a
strengthened convicition of its sound
ness as a basic principle in Southern
Feed is always scarce and high
when the time comes around for
making the next crop. There is no
question about the soundness of the
statement that it is best, because
safest and most economical, for the
Southern farmer to produce the
feeds for his livestock, nor is there
any ! question about the statement
having been made often' enough for
all to have heard it. But it is
equally certain that many Southern
farmers have not fully accepted this
statement as facts. They have taken
it in many cases as advice which
they felt bound to reject.
We are quite well aware of all
these things that probably a repeti
tion of the facts this season will have
as little effect as during past years;
but again we come forward with the
“original” statement that “This is
one year when no farmer can afford
to fail to produce his own feeds,,
especially the feeds for his work
stock.” Why is it “especially im
portant that we grow our feeds in
First because a large part of the
South is short of feeds for making
the crops in 1924, which means that
these crops will be made aj a higher
Second, because ofthe present
good price of cotton there will be
an inclination to increase the cotton
acreage, which will itself tend to
reduce the acreage to feed crops.
Third, a larger acreage to cotton
and a smaller acreage to feed crops,
or rather a larger crop ofcotton and
a small crop of feeds, will tend to
lower the price of cotton and m
: crease the price of feeds,
Fourth, it is more economical to
grow the-feeds needed than to buy
them, taking one year with another.
The only case when this isnot true
is when the farmer is a poor farmer,
or an inefficient producer of feeds.
But there are sometimes efficient
cotton prodcurs who will challenge
the accuracy of this fourth reason
for feed production.
They may be divided into two
classes. The first, a very large class
are very poor farmers so far as pro
ducing feed is concerned. The other
ciass, a very small one, are very ef
ficient cotton producers. This class
is very much smalller than those who
think they belong to it generally be
lieve. Most of those thiink they are
such good cotton farmers that they
can afford to buy feeds for work
stockk with cottonm oney are great
ly mistaken. If feeds were genearl
ly cheap when cotton is high priced,
theory would work out more frequ
ently; but where feeds are not pro
duced they are always high priced,
and in the South when cotton is low
priced, because of a large crop, feeds
are generally higher priced because
of a poor crop.—The Progressive

The love of animal for its' master Is
a theme upon which poets, essayists

without that feature. It happened on

For one of the elaborate scenes

There was a slender* column of
cavalry and a horde of infantry,
coming from opposite direction and
joining to pass through a narrow
gate. The tumult of shouting and
beating of hoofs was tremendous. In
the midst of the flashing s etrne Kerry
was crowded by a charging group of
horsemen and fell—right beneath the
hoofs of onrushing beasts!
Cries from everyone who ‘taw the

Director Rupert Julian and every
worker around rushed through the
squirming mass ocf tangled humanity
as fast as crowded bodies ccvid be

The beast was standing with legs
outstretched, rigid, covering the body

had lain without moving. One swing
