Many volumes have been written upon ttie subject of fertilizers yet much is to be -'written and learned. .Getting on this subject is somewhat like the fellow's grace. ^ Being caUed'upon to say gface at }diniieif^and^pt being accustomed to ''the'; job, said he never could fiiidta stopping piaoe. i Jeff x Welbdrrii of Tiexas.a practical farmer 'a v few years ago, made the claim that any ,iu,an-: tity 1 of fertility could be brought up from the earth by proper til r lage. Mr. Welborn finally defied - the scier-ttsts of the world and founded a farm ; paper to teach his theory^ The old fellow has passed to his r^wardi but we see more truth thaii fiction in -his teachings. Half the battle in successful farming is the thorough preparation of the soil be"fore the seeds are planted. thVb. G.·'A. and is preparing for a large'cro'p-this year. Guess he has quite a lot of confidence in our, organization." If one man can run the price of cotton up to 18 cents it looks like the whole united . cotton section ought to be able to get 10 or 12 cents for their cotton., ' T h e r e is no sense in -the farm-: ers rushing their cotton on the market in three months. This is faster than the railroads can handle it and the middle-men find warehouse room. It is the big cotton growers' fault'that we have low prices for cotton.and it is to him we look for the needed reforms in systematic marketing and diversification. He is in the association to stay.. We little fellows can de- pe'nd upon him. It is our duty to lend pur aid and we must do it if we succeed.

Good corn is made by "streaking off" and planting. We-have never done this, but may have it to do this spring; if we do we can tell more about' it than we know now. I will not do.this if I can get my corn planted by the iOth of April. I'd much rather have April corn with a well prepared seed bed than March corn "streaked off" and planted. It is all bosh about April corn being no good. There will not be a half week's difference in the time of maturity in corn "streaked off" and planted the 15th of March and a thoroughly prepared seed bed and planted the first of April; besides we run no risk m hitting a dry time to - plow out the-middles. FERTILIZER. To compound a fertilizer to meet the requirements of corn in the proportion to the amounts removed from the soil, we must use 900 pounds of seven per cent, cotton seed meal, 800 pounds si/teen per cent, acid phosphate . aiid 700 pounds kainit. Now as pur soil is found to contain enough potash to make fifty ·bushels of. .corn per acre, we may discard the kainit and save three or four dollars that is thrown away when we buy a · complete fertilizer. So the right proportion to mix a corn fertilizer .is 900 pounds, seven per cent. / cotton seed meal and 800 pounds sixteen £er cent, acid" phosphate. A fertilizer compounded as above will analyze about 6-3. A 7-2-2 . fer.tilizer contains nine pounds acjd phosphate too much, lacks 37 pounds .being enough nitro- geh and 40 pounds of potash. Soil in, my inimediate com|S munity inakes. good corn with :; . ^bttqn seed meal alone. This is .evidence that our piney woods ." soi) contains sufficient plant food other : than nitrogen .to; make a good corn'crop. : - " ;. COTTON NOTES. x -United we stand, divided we COTTON GROWER'S STATE CONVEN- 1 TION. The Cotton Grower's State Convention was a decided success in every particular. It was one of the most representative bodies ever gathered together in one place. The trend of thought showed that our people see eye to eye and are of one opinion; are only seeking justice, and are for a clean, non-partisan business proposition.' -^ - Mr. J. C.Clark, of Coahoma, was elected president, M. A. Fisher, of Port Gibson, secretary, M. A. Carmical,of Jackson, treasurer. Mr. Clark is a plain business farmer; Mr. Fisher is a newspaper man of some note,and the treasurer, Mr. Carmical, is under a §6,000 bond, which insures our safety. Thoroughbred Eggs for Sale.
