It appears that the county is ending up the year with a good to bumper crop of cotton, corn, soybeans and even pecans. This is the first year I ever saw pecan tree limbs propped up to keep them from breaking under the load of tuns. I do not blame farmer's pessimism in August and September for my poor judgment in estimating the crop. I was out in the fields day after day. I. like many of you, just couldn't see the bumper crop on Sept. 1. Crop Keporting Service The Crop Reporting Service says that Mississippi County farmers had 221,400 acres of cotton last year, averaged 457 pounds per acre and produced 210,000 bales. I think the measured acres of cotton in Mississippi County this year is in the neighborhood of 180,000 acres. What will be the production? The report also says that Mississippi County soybean acreage was 165.000, averaged 14.2 bushels per acre with a total production of 2,346,000 bushels. Perhaps the acreage is up this year. Surely the average yield is up considerably over last year's extreme drought. Will the county set a production record? Back to cotton, the U. S. .D A. reported Oct. 24, "Yield per acre this year is estimated at 405 pounds. Sixty-four pounds above 1954. Q. S. A. cotton yields have set new records in each of the last three years. The 1944-52 average is only 279 pounds per acre." Good Reatllne In the November issue of Successful Farming magazine is an article entitled. "What You Need to Know about Potassium". Since the use of potassium is becoming more important in crop production in North Mississippi County. I would suggest that you would like to read this article. In the November issue of Farm Journal you will find an interesting article "How Bad Off Are Farmers?" They present facts, not propaganda. modell for all lion- dord form Iroctort ...for AUTOMATIC SOU SMOOTHING, • DIRT MOVING SEEDBEO PREPARATION!

New Suede garments are no longer considered a luxury. The special "quilion" chemical treatment now given suede makes it very practical and easy to keep them in wearable condition. If you have ever owned a suede jacket, coat or vest, you know its weaknesses. It soaks up stains and streaks. Dry cleaning has been a major undertaking. Only a few cleaners were willing to touch suede because it required special techniques and extra steps. Often it came back from the cleaners with its original texture gone, the leather dry and stiffened and the coLor ruined. 'Quilion" treated suedes are water- resistant, stain resistant, and dry cleanable. ketchup spilled on a "quilion" treated suede jacket can be easily washed off with water and blotted dry because treated suede is water resistant. Linen Storage Linen shelves in many of today's small homes are too few, too short too deep and too far apart for convenience. To make best use of such space D. S.

(Courier News Photo) are hard pressed to keep up with i The FARM LABOR supply Is ade- " •- quate except for this seasonal shortage. The mean temperature for the past week, as determined from the reports of 21 stations, was 61 degrees which is normal. Weekly means ranged from 59 degrees at several stations to 65 degrees at Stuttgart. Extremes ranged from 25 degrees at Gilbert on the morning of the 25th to 80 degrees at Gilbert, on the afternoon of the 21st. There was an appreciable amount of rain at only 4 stations with the heaviest weekly total, 0.05 inch, at Mountain Home. Frost was reported over much of the State on the morning of the 25th. Ideal harvest weather enabled farmers to make good progress during the past week. Continued open weather would be welcomed by most farmers engaged in harvesting their crops. However, some areas of the State, notably the northwest, need rain for proper growth of fall seeded small grains and legumes. COTTON picking is 50 to 60 percent complete in most major producing counties. Most of the cotton is now open. Rapid progress was made in picking during the past week and gins the volume of cotton brought in. Mechanical pickers are playing an important role in harvesting the crop which is yielding well in all areas. The RICE harvest is as much as 90 percent complete in some counties. Some ice is down and is slowing up harvest operations. Excellent yields are reported. SOYBEAN harvest is underway in all areas but progress varies widely. Yields show a wide variation but are mostly good except on fields hit by dry weather In northeastern counties. Much CORN has been harvested although delayed somewhat because of heavy labor demands for picking cotton. Combining of GRAIN SORGHUM continues. Good yields are reported for both these crops, particularly early corn and sorghums. Benton County reports some frost damage to some late planted sorghum fields. HAY harvest is complete but some silage was put up during the week. FEED supplies are ample. Seeding of SMALL GRAINS continues with much acreage already up and furnishing good grazing. In northwestern counties additional rainfall is needed on recent plantings. OATS is the principal small grain crop already seeded. Seeding of wheat is just getting underway. The SWEET POTATO harvest is | well along and good yields are re-i ported. Some SORGHUM SYRUP j is still being made. STRAWBERRY , beds are mostly in good condition! although hurt some by dry condi-; tions in Searcy County. PECAN harvest is beginning with a good crop in prospect. SPINACH stands I on many fields in Crawford County; are poor and replanting is wide- j spread. \ CATTLE are in good condition on pastures and early planted oats, j The plentiful feed supply has made | the demand heavy for feeder calves, j Additional COTTON PICKERS are needed in practically all the major cotton producing counties. WARNING ORDER IN THE CHANCERY COURT, CHICKASAWBA DISTRICT, MISSISSIPPI COUNTY, ARKANSAS Barbara Thorn, Pltf. vs. No. 13,128 Grady Thorn, Dft. The defendant. Qrady Thorn, is hereby warned to appear within thirty days in the court named in the caption hereof and answer the complaint of the plaintiff, Barbara Thorn, Dated this 12th dsy of October, 1955. SEAL OERALDINE LISTON, Clerk. By DONNA SIMMONS, D. C. Claude F. Cooper, atty. for ptf. Ed B. Cook, atty. ad. litem. 10/14-21-28-11/4 —unless they are in long, narrow folds. In double-row storage, everydaj articles can conveniently go in front giving a back seat to out-of-season reserve, seldom-sued, or guest supplies. (This may discourage the family from grabbing "Sunday best" linens for daily use.) Compact folds are easy to handle and use more vertical height and less shelf space, clearance space of about three inches at the top o! stacks makes it easier to get linens on and off shelves. Boiling small articles such as doilies, dresser scarves, and table mate on tubes for storage takes time and patience, but prevents creases and utilizes deep, narrow shelf space. Sometimes shelves are so far apan that there is plenty of room between them for half-shelves. These can be fastened at the back or along the sides of the closet where they do not interfere with the visibility of linens on the deep shelves. The "little linens"—pillowcases, napkins, dlshtowels, wash - cloths, potholders—will fit on a shelf just eight inches deep. On shelves, this shallow, linens are in a single row o they are easy to see, and easy to ;et in and out of storage. Root Vegetables Root vegetables are abundant in he fall and add variety to fall and vinter meals. In contrast to the leafy green vegetables, the root vegetables are not rated as good sources of calcium or iron but they all contain small amounts. They also contain small amounts of some of the B-vltamins. Each has a contribution of vitamins and minerals to make. Root vegetables supply relatively few calories. Carrots, turnips and rutabagas supply fewer per serving than beets or parsnips, but they are all low- calorie foods with the exception ot parsnips, each supplies only about 35 calories per serving— about the same amount as a teaspoon (1/3 pat> of butter or margarine used for seasoning. A cool moist place is best for jtoring root vegetables to keep them crisp and plump until used. In preparing them for cooking, make the parings thin or scrape no more than skin deep. To shorten cooking time cut vegetables in | pieces, or slice, dice or shred coarse- t ly. To keep whole beets from losing; their bright color during cooking, do not peel, and leave on an inch or two of stem and tap-root. Young tender vegetables will cook with the addition of little or no water but older vegetables require more. Their cooking time is longer ind there is more danger of boiling dry. Add vegetables to boiling, salted water. Bring the water back to boiling, then turn heat low to cook gently. Cover the kettle and cook only until tender. It's Time To Gather walnuts and pecans. Rake and burn old rose leaves after frost, if leaf spot is present. Dig and store cannas, dahlias, and caldiums before severe frost injury. Store in damp (not wet) peat moss, sawdust, or sand in basement. Divide and transplant hardy spring-blooming perennials. Prepare storage space for late fall garden crops. Mirror's Support Approximately eight tons of 3fi per cent nickel-iron alloy castings were used in construction of the structure to upport the 200-inch telescopic mirror at Mount Palomar Observatory, California.
