for a few years it would produce

alone naturw would restore it. This
mij:ht have been the wisest thing to
loat that time and under those cir
cumstances, but no one w ho has given
it ant thought will contend that it is
' the thing to do now.
There were, even More the war.
S 'tne exceptions to this rule. Chief
.Instil Thomas Uurtin, whose hotr.e
ami farm was within a few miles of
where I live, was a large farmer, and
it was he, so understand, who first
introduced red clover into this sec
tion of the State. J know from oth
ers that he improved Ins land, advo
cated improved methods of farming
ami was considered ahead or the
tunes.
Notwithstanding the recent intro
duction ,,f unproved farming implc
incuts, the majority of our farmers
today are pursuing the same policy
their father did. and the yield of
farm product is not increasing. Our
young men are leaving the farms for
the towns, and the farms are allowed
to wash away or grow up in briars,
sassafras and pines, or they are turned
over to bo worked on shares brsomr
one hise only idea is to gel as much
as Kissilile out of it w ithout any care
for improvement. I hoe to say
something to encourage young men
to stay ii Kn the farm, and to con
vince them that fanning in its true
sense is a most invit ing held, and that
it can lie made a success.
I am Mire that a majority of the
people do not realize what these
lands are capable of doing under a
proKT system of cultivation and ro
tation of crops. When we consider
our tine climate, with a market for
everything at our very doors, this
section, presentsthe ideal home for the
small farmer. The Western States,
with tlnur limited variety of crops,
although making a greater yield ier
acre, cannot coniote w it It us because
of the greater variety of crops that
can be grow n on these lands, and the
market for them at home. 1 want to
show that these lands can be im
proved, and that it is being dune.
The people in Alamance know that
Mr. I.. Rinks Holt bought one of the
oorcst farms in the county, and to
day it is producing line crops and is
paying lum. Mr. John Tmlinger of
llaw Kier bought a worn-out tract
of land and is now producing crops
that arc a sin prise to his neighUirs.
We see what has been done by (Jen.
Carr at (Vnmm-heo, und Mr. Duke
Bt I'niversity Station. It may be
argued that these gentlemen, on ac
coi.nt of their wealth, niv able to im
iirov their farms, when an ordinary,
farmer could not. It is my purpose
to show how the same results can be
produced by a small farmer without
wealth, except that it may take a
longer lime. Any young man of

The matter of feed Is of
tremendous importance to the
farmer. Wrong feeding is
loss. Right feeding is profit
The up-to-date farmer knows
what to feed his cows to get
the most milk, his pigs to get
the most pork, his hens to
get the most eggs. Science.

Are they fed according to
science, a bone food if bones
are soft and undeveloped, a
flesh and musclo food if they
are thin and weak and a blood

Scott's Emulsion is a mixed

energy can take a worn-out farm, and
if he lives his allotted time he can
see it in as high state of cultivation
a either of these farms. I seak
very decidedly about this, for I ieak
from experience. I believe 1 can
best illustrate my point by telling
what I have done and expect to do
at Melville Farm.
Twenty-five years ago I left school
to take charge of the farm where 1
was raised. 1 thought there was no
place like it in all the world. My
sisters and brothers, knowing my
love for the farm, and desiring tliat
the old home should be kept togeth
er, willingly sold their interest in
the farm to me. I only had enough
money to pay for a half interest in
this farm. It contained six hundred
acres om-half in timber, and the
t her in a run-down condition, hav
ing Wn worked by negro tenants.
It was badly washed ; galled place
w ere in every field, and were getting
larger. Fields were full of stone and
irregular in sham-. A few more vears
of such cultivation and it would have
been worthies, because you could
get nothing from it.
there was urion this farm at that
time about fifty acres of land, that
were producing an average of ten
bushels of wheat or twenty of corn
lcr acre. As near as I can recollect,
the year I took charge of the farm
the crop w as one hundred bushels of
w heat, seventy-five of oats, two hun
dred and fifty of corn and a little
hay. The work stock consisted of
five horses, a fewr sheep, ten head of
cattle and some hogs. The year 1901
it . . i .... j T i . i
mis same larm pnxiucca eigni nun
dred bushels of wheat, fourteen hun
dred bushels of oats, from one thou
sand to fifteen hundred bushels of
crn, besides nearly twenty-five tons
of clover hay and some peavine hay.
I lie larm is now earn ing about
fifty head of cattle, forty sheep, thirty
hogs, eight work horses and a few
colUi every year to supply work stock
for the farm. I wish now to tell how
this has been done, and I believe the
way 1 have done it is the best way to
improve these lands. I took fifty
ai res of land a a nucleus to build
on. 1 would find a few acresof good
land in nearly every field. I Ix-gan
by sow ing peas and clover, keeping
sbx'k to consume the food raised, and
with the moderate use of fertilizers,
I have gradually increased the pro
ductiveness of the farm. I have made
it a rule to apply all manure direct
from the stable- U the galled spots in
the field, rather than (as was the cus
tom of many) to apply it to corn in
the hill. Ity this application of ma
nure I would at once stop these
places from washing, and get them
in condition to grow clover and pea.
Having pursued this plan for this
number of years, you can now hardlv
detect any of these spots. I extend
ed this plan, until 1 am now making
my best crops on land that had gul
lies ten feet deep. 1 have made it a
rule every year to get as many
stumps anl rocks off of the land a
possible, to get the fields in better
shape, to make them larger, to clean
out all little thickets and briar
patches, and to leave the field in bet
ter shape than when I began it
I have now adopted this rotation.
I do not say that it is the best, but it
is what I am doing. For the first
year wheat; second, corn and subsoil,
it possible; third, oats and clover
sown together in the spring: fourth,
clover to be mow n for hay; fifth, peatt
to d mown or picked lor wed, and
sown to wheat in the fall. I adopt
this rotation because it give good
results and uniform work for the
team throughout the year. You will
see I take off the land three grain
crops and raise two ammonia-grow
ing crops, i hose two crops of clover
and peas make splendid .prepara
tion for the grain crops to follow.
My corn is cut in the fall, about Sep
tember, with a corn harvester, and
set np in shock, where it remain
until after I finish sowing wheat. 1
I to receive the oats and clover. The
advantage of breaking in the fall is
that I can get the oats in early, about
February. Some niay ask, -Why
have a pea crop follow a clover cmp,
would you not make just a goal a
wlicat crop after the clover ?"
The dilliculty has always been that
if I deended on a wheat crop after
clover I would take a big risk, ami
often W a wheat crop on account of
not being able to brisk the land stun
enough on account of dry weather.
1 begin in the spring, when land is
too wet to cultivate crops, to break
the land tliat was in clover the year
Wore, and sow it in peas. If we
should have a drv summer I am sure
of getting in a wheat crop, and hav
ing the hind in goal condition, lie
sides having cut a ea crop for hay
I keep about fifteen registered Jer
sey milk cows and feed them cotton
set d meal and bran. The cow Urn
is so arranged that I can drive
through it to get the manure. The
stables are well bedded, and the ma
nure is hauled to the poor places and
spread direct from the wagon. I
bought a piece of land adjoining my
farm that contains fifty acres. It hail
been cultivated, but as I have before
descrilied, it was thrown out because
it was too poor to cultivate. Fullv
eight acres of that land had the top
soil washed oft to the clay, the re
mainder being grown up in sassafras,
briars and second-growth red oaks.
I first began t treat that land de
pasturing it with sheep, then, after a
few years, I gave it a iiuod plow inc
and subsoiling and a thorough grub
bing, taking up everything bv the
rtiots. I made fourteen hundred
bushels of oats (in this land, besidtn
feeding some in the sheaf. One year
I had eight hundred bushels of
wheat, and another I had as tine a
crop of corn as I ever saw grow. Tit-
day that land is in peas and clover
ami uniform all over, and vet mv
wagon is running, as 1 write, apply
ing manure to the pi ores t sots I can
detect in the field, preparatory to a
wheat crop.
ror many years I was troubled bv
heavy rains washing the hill sides
into the little branches, and by the
little streams overllowing and wash
ing the top soil awav. This was
esiccially noticeable if I was culti
vating it in corn. I am now adopt
ing the policy of putting all such
land into permanent meadows. If
the hills arc washed by heavy rains
the soil is caught by the meadow
and is deposited licfore it reaches
the stream. If the stream overllows
the meadow is improved. After every
big freshet 1 am not grieving that
my land is washed away.
I have endeavored (as much as my
means would permit) to use machin
ery, and my constant aim has lieen
to increase the product and to re
duce the labor. No more labor is
required now on account of machin
ery and improvement in size of
fields than was required when it pro
duced only one-fourth as much.
I feel that I ought to say that I do
not U-lieve I could have succeeded
as well as I have had it not been for
the help of my family. I married
soon after going to the farm, and my
wife has been bookkeeper all the
time and general manager when 1
was away. My little boys do the
milking, attend' to the cows, separate
the milk, feed the calves and do the
hundreds of other things which, if 1
had had to hire, would have serious
ly hindered my plans. What I wish
to impress upon others is that if I
have succeeded under these circum
stances, others can. If this spirit of
improving farms, and making them
more attractive, is followed up from
year to year, we would all be sur
prised at what a wonderful change
it would make in the appearance of
this country. It is my imrposc, if I
live twenty year, to double my pres
ent production, 1 believe it can lie
done.

A IV Farmer's Long Bridal Tour.
Charliiltr OWn-iT
Mr. hps- atts Brawley of M ores

ed from an extendetl bridal lour.
Aliout the middle of S ptemU-r he
was married to Mis Patterson, t lit

soon after the ceremony and traveled

all they touched 2." State.
-Mr. llrawley is an interesting char
acter. It will be rivalled bv readers
of the Observer that he raised a crop
of cotton for less t linn three cents a
few year ago. The statement was
made in the jiewspaK'rs at the time,
and he was criticized for it. Nunc
went so far as to deny it. But Mr.
Brawley ha gone forward with his
farming and money-making until he
is a man of considerable wealth, lie
is a graduate of the Ciiiversity, and,
among other things, knows how to
enjoy his money as he makes it. lie
sets aside so much ever- year for
pleasure. His business is carried on
with the system and method of a
well regulated bank. He keens a strict
amuint of everything that he carries
in and everything that is taken out.
He pays cash for what he buys and
sells a surplus of every crop raised
on his farm. He buys cattle, all
grades and sorts, and conterts some
into beef and turns others into milk
era. He considers himself lucky if
he gets his money back, makes i5 a
head and gets the manure. His liarns
are not the kind you see on pacrs,
in papers and magazines, but are
built for convenience and comfort.
Mr. Brawley is thoroughly practical
There is no theory and but little sen
timent in his way of farming; he
uses common sense and industry.
Two months and a half make a
long bridal tour for any one, much
less a "hV farmer." Mr. ltraw lcy's
friends congratulate him on licing
able to do such a thing. His educa
tion come in to help him enjoy him
self. North Carolina should beiimud

remarked a citizen tlie other day.
'Yes." said a farmer, "it will pav to
save it all. even if you have to crack

We are confident such a scheme
would work out all right provided a
