An Outline of What To Do This Sear.
1st The soil is fundamental and
no matter how, fertile we get it, the
first crop removed from it leaves it
poorer, hence soil building will be an
everlasting necessity; and the cheap
est and best mode is to grow legume
crops, such as cow peas, soy beans,
velvet beans, etc., . and the vetches
and clovers., alfalfa, etc.
2nd. We must, after building up
our soil, learn a crop rotation that
will keep the soil up when once built
up. ' ,
3rd. Permanent pastures is just
as essential to good farming as good
corn fields and cotton fields.
4th. When good pastures are es
tablished-then comes good live stock.
cattle, sheep, hogs and poultry to
consume these good pastures.
5th. Last yearrwe undertook
pure bred poultry project, by which
we desire to free Polk county from
scrub chickens. This we want to push
with all our might this year."
6th. We have undertaken the im
provement of swine growing, and s
Hampshire Swine Breeders Associa
tion has been organized, and we want
as many farmers as possible to join
this movement and by so doinsr
standardize the hogs of Polk, county.
7th. We want to do more commun

club at every school 'house in the
county would be a good thing and is

important are Soil Building and Con

Captain John W. Wilcox answered
the sudden summons of death on
New Year's night. He had passed a
happy evening with the members of
his family, and retired early as was
his custom, waving a smiling good
night to his sons (who have been

New Orleans, August 4th, 1840. He
served in -the war between the

Ala.; Commander John W. Wilcox, of
the U. S. Navy, Mrs. Arthur Tufts,
of Atlanta, Ga.; and Louis D. Wilcox
of Baltimore. -
Captain Wilcox followed the pro
fession of engineering for a greater
part of his life, (having been for years
city engineer of Macon, Ga. For a
short time in his young manhood he
iperated a locomotive, and in his de
clining years the 7 great engines that
thunder up the grade into Saluda had
a peculiar fascination for him, many
a summer resident of Saluda having
witnessed the sight of a white-haired
old gentleman standing near the track
at the top of the grade, waving his
hat to the man at the throttle "of the
straining monster as it passed up the
road, a symbol of the thought that he
has made the grade and passed on' to
