To the Farmers of W. North Carolina
Be Prepared For 1918
From “Power Farming;.”
If we could see our cuatoniers individually and ask then! whaC
preparation they were making for carrying on their farm work next
year, we would probably find that many of them have thought little
or nothing about it Perhaps vou feel that it is too early, that you
have practically all WifilSr to think and plan; and, therefore, you do
not need to hurry particularly.
But is it too early ; have you got three or four months to pre
pare at your leisure? Positively hot; if you prepare as yoi^ should.
Furthermore, every farrper has both a patriotic and an economic
duty to perform that demands action on his part right now. We
must consider how a delay or failure to our duty will affect other
Your prepartion consists principally of having on hand and ready
for use the supplies and equipment you w'iH need, especially seed,
fertilizer, and implements. It is not too mu2h to say that, taken as
a whole, the most important of these are the implements.
For several months back We have pointed out to our customers
the possibility of an implement shortage next season. This possi
bility has now become a certainty. Just how serious the shortage
will be is, of course, not yet khown; but if we were farming, know
ing what we do, we would most certainly do what v/e are advising
our custmers to do in this article. And that is, we would lose no
time in placing our orders for what implements we would neea next
In normal timers this is rot necessary. But these are anything
but normal times, and it becomes a patriotic duty this year to order
early. It is one of the many ways in -Which the man on the farm
can “do his bit.” If everyone vVould place his order now, it would
help manufacturers and dealers greatly to guage the demand for
implements for next season, and especially to make known to those
in charge of priority matters at'Washington their needs^ for mate
rials. The man on the farm must realize that the day of an over
production of farm implement is past, imebably for ever,- and that,
in addition to an actual shortage, the price must of necessity be high.
And what is more, the price will continue to be high for some
time to come. But if our patriotic and our economic duty is indi--
viduaiiy reali7.ed—if it is, as it should be, our first tbought->-We will
not permit the mere matter of price to stand between us and the
equipment we need to carry on our businoss mos t efficiently and
In view of the jmpleme-nt-ahortage and as a matter ef goo J farm
ecopmy, -w’e want to urge a careful inspection of the implements at
present on the farm. Perhaps some of those which you thought
had reached the limit of their usefulness and which had be dis
carded for further use, could possibly be overhauled and repaired so
as to give fairly good service at least for another season. It is ad-'
visable to do this wherever possible, not only for economic r asons,
but also becausie irwill Kelp greatly to .elieve thofitagd of equipment
next year
This irepairing of Worn-out or discarded implements should be
attended to as soon as the farm woi-k slacks up, so that the repairs
may b© made in piety of time. Delay in this respect is decidedly
inadvisable as it may take several weeks in some cases to get the
repair parts needed.
In prep_aring for 1918, the ^ct that the labor shortage will be'
more serious than ever will unquestionably be the biggest problem
for the man on the farm to solve. It ic not only extremely difficult,
as well as impossible, in a large percentage of cases, to get the labor
needed to carry on the farm work, to say nothing of the quality, but
farm boys are being drafted into the\ military service. This will
I'esult in placing many in a serious situation. And yet our patriotic
duty demands that we Work harder than ever, and that we use
every means st our disposal to offset this shortage andjnot only keep
our production up to normal, but to increase it if possible.
The labor situation is so serious and the demands upon the man
on the farm for increased production are so great that the labor-
saving possibilities of farm implements will be considered more
seriously than ever. And in prepaaing for 1918 a great deal of
thought and study should be given to the matter of how labor can be
saved and how the labor shortage can be offset by using maciiines
and implements that reduce the amount of labor required.
Anticipating the shortage in implement and the difficulties and
delays in transportation, we have bought large stocks in all. lines in
advance; are prepared to supply our trade while they last. We urge
every one to order early. You will save money by doing, so. and
possibly not be able to get what you need later.
Write at once for information and prices of anything you will
need this spring and summer.
