OJy R. W. Shoffner, Cleveland
County Farm Agent.)
Mot so many years ago the farmer
was often spoken of as “a rube"
or a “hayseed." He and his family
were supposed to be different from
their, relatives In the big cities.
That, of course, was in those good
old days of dusty turnpikes, toll
gat-es and rubber-tired buggies. It
was when a drive of 15 miles to
spend the day was quite a trip.
TO-day All of this has been
changed. Tire rural free delivery
mall, smooth wide highways, fast
automobiles, the telephone, the
radio, the gas engine, the truck and
the- tractor- give the farm family
leisure and an opportunity to travel.
These newer things are bringing the
whole world to the farm hothe or
allowing the farmer and his family
to go quickly and easily out into
There are others besides the
county agent who believe that there
are golden opportunities to have a
real home on the farm. Well, here

ment of the home. As a matter of
fact the development of the home
In this country is essential to suc
cess on the farm. Under these
natural conditions all essentials to
home life are present, and the home
will develop itself if given a chance.
"The fact that the great masses
of the poor people have turned
their backs on the one great life
opportunity that was In their reach,
and taken up their abode in crowd
ed. unattractive sections of cities is
a very positive proof that the great
educational need of this day Is
education In life values. In a mea
sure many of these country people
were excusable for leaving the ru
ral sections of a generation ago. But
today the country offers so much
more to the poor man In the things
that really count, it Is difficult to
understand why these people should
prefer the city.
"It Is the natural and worthy
ambition of every typical American
to own his own home. Home own
ership carries with It an Important
moral quality. Men who own their
homes, other things being equal,
are recognised in law as being
superior In character and citizen
ship to the men without property.
In the rural sections of the South
home ownership Is within the easy
reach of every normal man, how
ever poor. The great masses In the
cities are of necessity renters. The
demand Is so great on their earn
ings, many of them do not even
attempt to own a home."

Duke Heiress Has
Two Trust Funds Are Held To Be
Exempt From J. B. Duke
Washington, July 14.—Two trusts
aggregating $30,634,000, created by
the late James B. Duke for his
daughter, Doris Duke, today were
held exempt from federal estate
taxes by the board of tax appeals.
The board overruled the commis
sioner of internal revenue who in
cluded the trusts in Duke's gross es
tate and sought to collect a $9,040,000
deficiency tax. It allowed a deficiency
of $500,000 which was admitted by
the executors of Duke’s will.
Duke died in October, 1925, leav
ing an estate valued for tax pur
poses at $101,606,000, exclusive of the
trusts established for his daughter
in 1917 with the Farmers’ Loan and
Trust company of New York city.
Petitioners in the tax action were
the three executors: Duke's widow,
Mrs. Nanaline H. Duke, George G.
Allen and William R. Perkings.

Pulling Fodder Is

Spartanburg Herald.—The cotton

costs the South a fortune. It's the
fodder pulling habit—and old South

one that reduces the yield of corn
to an extent far greater than the
farmer has ever realized.
Pulling fodder is absurd. Its un
