Robert S. Garoy, residing near
Heaver1 City, makes an affldavit to
satisfy enstern critics in regard to his
alfalfa crop last year. Off of lifty
acres of land he threshed and sold
1,010.83 worth of seod ant has 100
worth left. He sold and fed 100 tons of
hay oil thu same land, realizing DG0 for
Mm liny, and making a grand tntnl of
13,030 69 off the fifty acres. Thills a
UUlii hard for the farmers bacs east to
swallow, but solid facts always do
make a good mouthful.

A dispatch says tea thousand por
sous, mostly Americans, witnessed a
bloody bull tight in Mexico recently In
which six ferocious bulls and eight
horses wero killed. It is u sbamo that
American-) will disgrace their nation
ality by lending their support to such
heat tics p.istlmes. American blood
h always stilted to a boiling point
when a downlioildpii ami defenseless

The oorn crop will not consist of so

A wiso man sometimes changes his

accordance to an old saying fools nevei
do. And you all know when wo raised
corn and sold part of it for 8c, 10c and
123 per bushel and hnd ralsod noth
ing more to sell, and even hogs when
we fed it to thom were $2.50 to 13 60
por hundred, undor a democratic nd
ministration. Then it was easy to run
in dobt, though hard to crnwl out.
Wo had bottor bo wise than rich, if
poverty is the mother of all arts, for it
is an ill wind that blows nobody any
.Tha f armera'cortainly know from sad
experience that for success ia the- fu
ture wo must depend on a mixed crop

acres of alfalfa, or putting out more
cane and kaffir corn than we can feed,
for each of thom and also millet, will
do well oven in a dry season.
