One grand error of the Southern
farmer is the holding on to so much
unproductive land. Most farmers, we
dare cay might,) in some way make
productive more land than they do.
We say, in some way, either by till
age, by pasturage, by fruit, nut or
timber culture: or by tenantry. But
where a man has fairly done what he
can, according to his means and .labor
force, lie has no need for more, and
should not keep it if he has it.
. The secret of successful farming ev
erywhere is to make the whole farm
productive. Every square yard of
sou should yield its quota to help fill
the farmer's bin and barn. Land that
yields no income, and is not likely
to do so even in the life time of the
owner, is a dead weight, drawing upon
the rest of the farm in taxes, interest,
etc., and fearfully curtails the profits
of the productive acres.
This error is far worse when much
of the unproductive ground of the land
lies within the enclosed portions.
Then there is an j additional annual
tax lor fencing,?gr6tind travelled over
in working, &c. The rule should be
to make every foot of an enclosed or
cultivated field productive, lhere
should be no waste ground on account
of stumps, stones, trees or other im
pediments. An idle square yard of
ground not only cuts down the gen
eral average, but is an expense on the
labor bestowed upon the rest.
The hillsides! fence corners, mead
ow ground and woodland of f every
farm can and should iu some way be
made to yield something in the gen
eral routine. 1 he departments ot ru
ral iudustry are;multitudinous some
thing for every soil, locality, season
and market. The true policy is, to
make every acre do someiiimg. i
there are more acres than can be work
ed, some should be sold.
