I have .been writing about the im
portance of stopping land from wash-
ine away and building it back to a
state of fertility that will pay to
either cultivate, or put to permanant
pastures. jHow. can this , be done.
One way is to just turn .it over to
nature,: of course this is a slow way :
but better, thai to keep on cultivat
ing it making the case , worse each
succeeding year. Weeds, briars,
grass and bushes will eventually take
it and finally rebuild the soil, and in a
long time make it just 5as good as ever
Another ..way is to help nature, cut
and haul brush, straw, weeds and
other refuse Srom otKer parts of - the
farm that do rot need them so badly
and fill) all guies and bare paces and
let alorke fxrept to scatter some grass
seed anVespedeza seed. This is an
other shjjf" rjway. As it "will

don't get discouraged if it takes a
few years to -build up a good perma-

much work. The first thing to do is
to make up your mind to do it. The
second thing to do is to roll up your

dreamed that I went away from Polk
county. I dreamed that as I went
out I beheld the old fields all scarred
with gullies. I thought there had
been a great storm and the cotton
fields and corn fields had their . ter
races broken and the soil and fertil
izers, corn stalks and cotton skalks
were piled along the . road, having
been washed down from the bare
fields. I dreamed that Pacolet river
and White - Oak creek had overflowed 11
their banks ten. times after the plant-

was harvested. I thought I saw bare
foot men and women little boys and
