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 PBS&IFHT 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. Dut how about the children ? 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 food if there is anemia?

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. When young men are educated to be farmers, as the doctors, lawyers and preachers are for their profes sions, you are going to see in this 1'ieilmont section just what I am de scribing, not in a few instances, but on a large scale.

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 of such a farmer. Cool Springs Items. C-orreifionitt'iKt' tit The Juurnal, I F. L Dec.. l -Mr. W. T.
