In a news leieu e just issued '.V.
I'nited States Department of A-H-lulture
calls attention to the im
pending hay shortage throughout the
. ountf) due to drouth in the big
liny producing regions. In connec
tion with this announcement the De
partment takes occasion to point wi
the fact that timothy hay is bringing
from $25.50 in Atlanta to $27 in
Memphis, and that alfalfa is bring
ing SoO in Atlanta and ?25 in Mem
phis. And mind you ,t his is right
in the middle of the hsing season,
a fact that can hardly be taken to
forecast anything other than high
prices throughout the next twelve
months. Moreover, the wheat crop
of the country is many millioi:
bushels smaller than that of UC!
it has been predicted that the total
production will scarcely exceed con
minptive demands within our conn
try, affording no exports. If then
is no wheal for export we may rea
sonably expect high prices to obtain
for this product also. With wheat
high corn will bo relatively high, too.
And all taken together, there is jusf
one conclusion. That conclusion is
that if the South does not prepare
to take care of itself somebody is
going to wake up mighty sick.
Fortunately our planting season is
not yet ended. A mixture of fifty
pounds of Mammoth Yellow soy
beans planted in rows, or peas broad
cast, or sorghum broadcast, or sor
ghum and peas mixed and broadcast
at the rate of one bushel of peas
and one-half bushel of sorghum to
the acre, are all crops that can lie
planted with a fair degree of as
surance of success even on up to
August. Of course, we should not
expect the yields Twin these late
plantings that might, have been pro
duced from earlier plantigs. If we
make no more than a ton to the
acre, however, such yields will prove
tremendously profitable under exist
ing circunTstani es. Even under ordi
nary oondiitons plantings of these
crops should be made. The South
lias never yet produced an over
abundance of roughage. Southern
Will Simply f-iatioi.al Committee
With Facts About Its Thirty
Thousand Electrified Farms.
Definite activity Is in progress in
I California, the one state where actual
farm electrification is further ad
vanced than lu any other, to collect
data which will be of benefit to oilier
states Interested In this subject.
The national Committee on the Re
lation of Electricity to Agriculture will
i be the clearing house for the tnforma
l tlon secured. The arruUfjement result
j ed from visits to California by Dr. K
j A. White, director of the comnihtee.
! He Informed a gathering of California
j agricultural and electrical men of the
national committee's purpose and as
sisted In the organization of a Cali
fornia state committee.
In California, thirty thousand farms
use electricity. Their consumption of
energy in a typical ,-ar amounted to
564.000, OUO horsepower hoars.
Eighty par cent of tiiis energy was
employed to operate irrigation pumps
Nearly half of all the electrical energy
expended on California farms is de
rived from electric motors.
At the same time, much use Is made
of electricity on California farms for
typical farming operations. There are
also nuty California farm homes
which are completely electrified.
Several sub-committees are gather
ing general information on the Tall
fornla farms which use electricity. One
committee will gather data on costs
and kinds of uses of electricity. An
ather willinvestigute the question of
rates for farms.
The third committee will find out
how electricity la 'used In California
farm houses and how it makes lite
more livable on the farm. The fourth
committee will study the economic
utilization of electricity on the farm.
Poultry farms and dairy farms will
be given special study, as will the
farm shop. Refrigeration and the
praying ot plants will also be looked
Into by one of the committees.
It is to be expected that the Investi
gations under way In thirteen other ;
states will find much to aid them in ',
the information obtained frotu California.
The stock of hor: and mule colts
in this country is at a low ehb ;o.
and progressive farmers in North
Carolina will find in this an p. '
tunity to make money, think I'm!'.

large business is so t r .at an amount of capital

The new money put into a railroad, therefore,
must be profitably employed, either in in
creasing capacity for service or in effecting
economies of operation.
The Southern, never yet able to control all
the new capital its management would be
pleased to invest, necessarily has to give
preference to productive improvements, such
as yards, shops, engines, cars and tracks.
But it is because it has devoted its resources
to necessities rather than non-productive
improvements like monumental passenger
stations that the Southern has been able to
keep its service abreast of the demands of
the territory it serves.
