Always Been Live- j

ton Royster, prominent and suc
cessful farmer In the Beams Mill
Iallston community a as. a live-at
home farmer before Governor Gard
ner thought of the idea as a means
of bringing- the country safely
through a period of depression. Ev
ery since he started farming, lie
has made it a practice to raise
enough food and feed to provide
for the plantation’s needs and has
something to sell on the market ail
the year round.
Mr. Royster determined to cu
his cotton acreage last fall, when he
£<>* ed 40 acres in small grain, lie
raises some cotton, out his land is
built up and with Intensified cul
tivation, he gets a bale to the acre,
or thereabouts, raising about 55
bales a year. Mr. Royster is a grain
farmer and has been since he
started farming for himself. His
first year on the farm, he raised
sorghum, hogs, cows, peas, wheat
and oats and put his attention to
these rather than all of his ener
gies to cotton and as a result, he
has prospered and added consider
able acreage to his holdings.
When asked if he ever tried lei
pedeza which is encouraged in the
county this year. Mr. Royster re
plied: "Yes. I have raised it and it
is a fine soil builder.’’ He has 14
head of cattle, about. 8 hogs and
never goes to market for anything
that can be produced On the farm.
Counting his family and his ten
ants whom he “runs,’’ he is feeding
33 people. This does not include
one tenant family who make their
own supplies. All hands are busy in
season and out on the farm. They
arc now ditching and draining bot
tom lands, tending to the live stock
and marketing milk. Much of the
ice cream sold on the Shelby imr
ket Is made from m-.k from the
