Gibbs and Clarence Mrs. Clarence Elliott $2.00 A YEAR : Z! SELLS NEW YORK HAY IN FAR SOUTH. Says a recent news bulletin issued at Cornell University.ln New York State, "A farmers cooperative com pany in western New York has found a strong demand for hay in the South. Recently this company has sold in the following cities: New Bern, N. C., Lavonia, Ga., and Rocky Mount, N. C. Other shipments have also been made to other points. "This hay has been handled through a broker at J5Q cents per ton brokers age fee. The hay has sold on a price basis of f. o. b. shipping station, the terms usually being draft on arrival,, inspection allowed, national hay asso ciation grades and rules to govern. The prices realized on the hay have ranged from $27.50 to $33 per ton." Now, isn't this a pretty how-to-do. asks the Extension Service workers of the State College and Department of Agriculture? New York farmers are selling hay in North Carolina," realiz ing $33 per ton to themselves, with one of the shortest growing seasons of the United States. North Carolina a natural grass country and with an all-the-year-round growing season, paying lVew York farmers $33 per ton for hay, when it is one of the eas iest handled crops that the State knows. An economic study of the hay sit uation in North Carolina reveals the fact that though we increased our acreage during the last three yars by 150,00 acres, the acreage for 1918 was only 590,000. On this area, 684,000 tons were produced, worth, according ot a recent study of this subject, $14, 364,000. In spite, however, of this increased acreage, this known value of the hay crop, farmers from all sec tions of the state import hay by the car load. ' . . ' c . Recently tt:Wib(u tehdinga 'iaietinj ln Chamber of Coininerce, It - wa notic that two car loads of hay were being'- unloaded during the short time of . the meeting. -! It is true says 'the Extension workers, that " good cold cash can be realized on cotton and tobacco, but what is the use of spending- this cash for food and feed stuffs grown out of. the . state when these can be produced abundantly; within the state. As Dr. Knapp has said, "the State should first buy a ticket for home before plunging on the cotton and tobacco gamble." . A LETTER TO JUNIORS. One of my boys told me the other day he had earned some money work-' ing for his uncle, and proposed to save it and buy some clothes. This morning I learned he is spend ing his mony on soda water and mo tion pictures in the village, and is not . expected home until the money is all gone. - How much better if he had bought thrift stamps until he had saved enough to get the clothes. , I The Polk county Fair will encour age the boys and girls to plant spec ial crops on land rented from their parents, to keep a diary of their sum mer's work, to exhibit in the court house," next October. Prizes ranging from 25 cents to $10 will be given, which the winners are urged to save. Special prizes for those writing the best reports and making, the best drawings. H .. ; If you are 12 years old you will, be in a separate class from the 15 years old. The largest prizes will be of- those who are doing agricultural club ; work. - Write J. R. Sams, Columbus" for in structions, or A. F. CORBIN, Mill Spring. Mr. Walter Horton was a visitor in this section, last week. Don't; forget that Polk county will welcome her 'returned soldier boys with a big celebration at Columbus, on hte Fourth of July. Everybody in ;he county owes it to the boys to be here. Cosmetic Art. From the looks of some of the wom en when It turns cold. It would be a good ' proposition to sell different shades of powder for hot, warm, cool and cold weather. They say that they sell different shades for day and night white for the daytime and blue for i-ose under artificial light, so, why noX for different degrees of temperature as well? However, probably some bright genius has already thought this up and patented his compound and It may not be well advertised as yet. Grit, -
