AD VAN t AGE OF LIVESTOCK
For th* avcrag-j farme r , under
av r.ge conditions, live sock
f :rming will he found to he he
fie-t and most pr til able. This is
the kind of firming which ln.s
brought many run down f i*ms up
to the h gh 8 acdard of produt; ion.
i Ids is the kind of farming which
has hr light h * hnst p ofit
and at the same time made a bet
ter farm each year.
There am wlmre it would
he best to sell the raw products
grown on tlm farm if rightlv man
aged. If we li we a good, high
pticed market (or our produce so
that w e 3in a fiord to lo.k to o'hei
means in getting fertilty, then 1
would say practice it, whether
-oiling market garden stutf or
whatever it may be. But unless
we have specially good markets,
we had better look more to live
stock as our means of getting a
living and a profit, and at the
same time making a farm worth
more each yp?ir. The easiest way
of handling a farm is by live stock
In Selling our grain and hay in
town, even if we do get a good
ptice, it takes some little time to
haul it. How much easier it is to
feed on the farm and drive tlm
feed to maik<t on foot, and then
we have the manure which we can
make double wages in hauling out.
We get a profit in the time we
spend in Hauling out the manure,
but in selling hay and grain in
'own we are 10. sing that much
from our farms, besides it takes
days of time.
I nevpr take a loal of fped to
sol 1 unless 1 always think of the
fertility I am taking oft my land,
and vou can rest assured I take
biit little. On ttie other* hand, I
never haul hay, and feed onto the
farm hut what I feel good over one
thing, and that is over the gain the
land will g- j t in fertility, whether
1 make anyth ng in the feed ng or
not. If every man would have
thes j thongii s in mind, and it
will pay him to do so, we would
have more rich farms.
Iu hauling stuff like grain and
hay to market, there is always an
ad led expense. Either you haul
it for nothing, or else y u add the
w nth of hau'ing and make the
other man piy you. Now, if the
other man can afford to boy and
pay you for hauling and feed, then
surely you can afford to feed it
right on your own farm, where
you save the hauling, and get the
manure, and feed it 10 stock which
were raised on the farm.
The way i always figured to do
was to grow just what I would
feed and ami to have just enough
stock to eat it, allowing plenty;
but I sometimes had to buy, hot
this did not hurt me as bad as
when I sell feed, knowing that I
get at least one profit. I never
sell grain unless it is an extra high
price and I can spare it.
It has been said that grain
farming makes rich farmers and
poor sons. This may seem true
in one sense, as it would seem at
first that the father has been sell
ing off the large crops of grain each
year and pocketing the money, and
now he leaves the worn-out farm
to his boys, who, if they try to
farm i,t will have to struggle to
make anything. I believe that il
the father had followed live stock
farming rightly he would have had
more than by the grain farming,
and still have a well fertilized
farm to leave to his boys. I be
lieve that with live stock farming
we make as much or more in the
present, and sure to make more in

Damage to Property Esti
mated at Ten Thousand
No Lives Lost.
The storm which swept over the
country hist week was very severe
in the vicinity of Iti,sing Fawn,
damaging property to the extent
of almost #10,000.00.
The residence and barn of Mr.
John Bhmsit situated in the
southern suburbs of the town
were badly wrecked. The house
was blown from its foundation,
turned partly around and set off
to one side without injury to its
occupants. ‘The barn was almost
totally demolished. Mr. Blansit
was damaged about #2,000.
The fruit orchard of Mr. Green
Evatt was badly damaged by the.
SEVERAL HOUSES WRECKED.
Several unoccupied houses be

at the Eising Fawn furnace were
badly wrecked, and a number of
freight cars of the A. G. S. E. E.
Company were blown from the

The furnace structure was badly

done in that vicinity about ten

FOUR STATES SUFFER
Many Lives Lost
Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi
and Louisiana suffer great loss of
human lives and millions of dol
lars in damages to property from
the effects of the tornado.
The suffering is much greater
and more widespread in the strick
en districts than was at first antis
ipated and a call on the people
for aid has been made by the Gov
ernors of the different states.
The number of lives lost run into
the hundreds, to say nothing of
those who were injured. Towns
were destroyed and communication
with the outside world cut off for
some time and the victims left to
make the best of what little was
left them. Many are without
food, shelter and clothing. Those
who are rtble to do so, should
respond to the call for aid of these
victims and contribute freely.
GOV. SMITH’S APPEAL
“Telegraphic reports which have j
been made to show at several
points in Georgia the recent
cyclone has left in its wake a far
greater degree of suffering than
was at first supposed, and I deem
it my duty to call on the people to
give speedy relief to those who
have been so suddenly stricken
and who are now without shelter,
food and clothing. 7 7
The department of the gulf is!
taking active relief measures and
has sent ofticei*s to several points
to report on the situation.
In South Georgia and North
Florida serious floods are threaten
ing towns and villages along the
Chattahoochee and Flint rivers,
which are reported to be well
above flood stages.
The weather bureau on the 29
sent out flood warnings for these
means of keeping up tbe fertility
of the soil. They are changing
their plan to part live stock for the
main reason of fertility. If we
have a good cash crop, it is a good
plan to have a part of live stock.
Let at least a part of live stock
farming he your method for safety
now and in the future. —National
