Let us grow clover and grass on the hill;
While intensely the le Is and flats we till.
The cows and hens wil settle our, daily bill;
While the beeves, shoe and tobacco the coffers fill.
And when orchard, ga den and sty the larder fill,
Then, with a smile, wil Mary greet her Bill.
THE FARMERS WAREHOUSE
The subscriptions to the building
fund for the Farmers Warehouse con
tinue to swell. At this time approx
imately $8,000 is available; $2,000
more is needed. Every farmer m
Madison County should be interested
in this building. The company will
be incorporated under the North Car
Kna atMtP laws and will issue certi-
stand that the rate of payment is
$2.05 per 100 pounds of 4 milk.
This is at the rate of 51 cents per
pound butter fat. The hauling
charge is 30c per hundred pounds of
milk. For if,' milk this would be
at the rate of 7V4c per pound fat,
leaving a net payment to the produc
er of 43a.ic ner nound butter f t.

MORE LIME, MORE CLOVER-This
also means more corn. The yields
of clover on two more lime and clo
ver plots were secured .during the
past week. On the Allen Bros, farm
Mars Hill, R. 1. the plot receiving no
lime yielded at the rate of 832Q lb s.
to the acre, most of which was grass.
The 1,000 lb. plot yielded at the rate
of 5600 lbs; the 2,000 lb. plot at the
rate of 8800 lbs. and the 8,000 lb.
plot at the rate of 10,080 lbs. This
is of course green weight. There
would have to be a correction made
for the cured weight
On Zeb Whitt's farm the results
secured by the use ot limestone are
still more outstanding. On this farm,
the 'No Lime' yielded but 1600 lbs.
to the acre; the 1,000 lb. plot, 6600
pounds to the acre; the 2,000 lb.
njot, 10400 lbs. to the acre; and the
3.C00 lb. plot 13,600 lbs. fo the a
cre. The use of 1,000 lbs. of limestone
secured an increase of 3,140 lbs. of
grass. 2,000 lbs. of limestone se

320 Standard Bred White Leghorns
during the past week. These are all
pullets, 4 to 7 weeks of age. They

out. M. M. Davis secured 120; Mrs.
T. A. Woody, 100; W. O. Rector, 50;
and J. N. Ramsey, 50. These pullets
will make a valuable addition to the
Leghorn flocks of the County.
