Crops, Soil Anrt Money Stan dard Of World. 'By Janies C. Elliott.' Cleveland is an average Pied mont county adapted by climatic conditions, soil fertility to corn, cotton, tobacco, the small grain crops, clover, gras es and legumes with a great variety ot^ vegetables and fruits, well adapted to live stock raising, dairying, pool’ey raising, and bee culture Bees are essential to fruit growing. With so great a variety of products, a fail ure is scarcely possible First, tall and Winter. growing crops are least expensive and should cover most of the arable lands for soil Improvement Not more than one fourth of lend should be in clean culture crops Winter crops improve the soil, sum mer crops clean culture crop'', ex haust the soil and are costly in la bor and commercial fertilizers. Rye and barley may be pastured in fall winter, and early spring—but not when the land Is wet. Sorghum is wet. Sorghum, early corn and soy beans should provide summer feed, fed green to all live stock, especial ly milk cows. Most so-called pas tures are only fit for stock to ex ercise In. Successful farming requires the conservation of natural resources. There is more in the man than in the land. Success depends on the energy and intelligence of the farmer. He can have such varie ties as he wants but he must im prove the fertility of his land. Tliere Is no profit on poor land.; Land tenure is of short duration from generation to generation, ; Land is the foundation of life. All | the people have an interest right in the land, to see that it is im proved and not abused, but made better for those that follow with increasing populations. Farming, for a good living is j sure. Every lick counts. Depending! on cash crops is a gamble that feel-! dotn pays. Me ny products may be! turned to cash. When one fails to pay, find something that will pay [money and markets fix prices. Un der this world depression all pro ducts are affected alike by the ! single gold standard making the poor poorer and the rich richer. Only the few that control the gold, fix prices and change values. The gold standard has bank rupted the world. There is not gold enough to pay one dollar on the thousand of indebtedness. The remedy Is In silver with more and cheaper money to pay taxes and debts. If such relief does not come | soon revolution and repudiation ot all debts public and private will result. All the wealth and conven iences are here. All needed is fin ancial adjustment to relieve the ombaraasing situation. Cause and effect, supply and demand regu late all things. And providence helps those that help themselves, As we sow, so we reap. When we go wrong we punish ourselves.
