Much has been said about "What's wromy with agriculture" Lno {inures used herein largely answer the question as it relates to Mississippi County. Statistics can deal only with the 'average/' and while some of our farmers are not affected by the conditions as set out herein, they are much in the minority—the big majority coming in that class called the "average." .MISSISSIPPI COUNTY HAS :!ll.:-'IHM!u!e>:— 1.112 llm-si'h— 5.50S Caltle- ll(j«s— 1!I!>,!>;17 Chickens.

Mississippi county's average cotton yield is SHI pounds of lint. Figure this at lOc a pound and you hnvc 533.10. Add $9, wl.icli is about the average value of the seed, and you have a total PIT i.cre yield of $-12.10—on 55.5H more than the average feed value per acre. Then figure the uncertainly of the price of cotton, tlie difference in production and gathering coat and see which pays best. It's Not Too Late To Play Safe! ^ _, V' Although most of the cotton has already been planted in Mississippi County, it's not too late to plant a few move acres of feed. Only about four more acres of feed per farm will give us what we need. Take a look at tlie cotton market report at the left; remember that's the New York market too—not Blytheville's; remember Blytheville is about 130 points lower than New York and then figure if you can afford to not grow more feed with 8 cent cotton staring you square in the face. If you decide it cannot be done; put a few more acres in corn and soybeans and be sure you have all the feed you need this coming year. A few acres less in cotton may mean the difference between a little profit and a big loss this year. $109 Prof it from 1 Sow Cow-So w--50 Hens Don't Forget Soybeans IHBnnTUUi^H^mW^HH^B^^^- Neio York Cotton NKW YORK, May 1.

I cow on each farm will just about meet our home needs and save us S7P,0.000 ,1 year. 1 In'ond sow on each farm will raise all the meat and lard we need and save us RG80.016 a year. •! 1 hens to the farm will save us S-lll.I-UW a year. These three together will make ?172 a year for each farmer in Mississippi count. The Rlythevillc Oil Mill will buy all you can raise and pay cash money for them. There's plenty of time left to plant them and 25 hn-hcls per acre will heal 10 cent cotton a mile. Your livestock can live all winter on a soybean field and save you a big feud bill —ask Charlie Abbot if yon don't believe that. They will increase your production next year by 2. r > per rent in either corn or cotton. Bo sure to plant soybeans this vear.
