An Iowa farmer and hia son work-
ed the farm and kept accounts for a
year. At the end of the year they
comparecí their results with accounts
kept by other farmers and summa-
rized by extension workers. They
made a list of what had proved to be
their strong and weak points as re-
vealed by the comparison. Their
strong points were found to be good
crop yields and good returns from
hogs. livestock returned $170 for
each $100 of food consumed, and the
hog receipts amounted to $140 per
sow. The weak points were found
to be that dairy product receipts
were only $3' per cow; also that the
farm allowed for only 41 acres per
man, 17 crop acres per horse, and
that it was cut up into 12 small ir-
regular fields. As the result of this
analysis the father and son made
j some changes the following year.
' They rented more land to bring up
thr number of crop aires per man
| and horse. They replanted the fields
¡and reduced the number in the inter-
est >>f efficiency of l¡il >r. They in
t rodueed a nnr:or rotation for hogs, j

County Court, Burleson County,
There is hardly a single day that
passes but what the citizens of this
city are making some kind of up-to-
the-minute improvement, not only
for the benefit of themselves, but for
the benefit of the entire community
as well. Churches, homes, store
houses, offices, garages, etc.,are all
either being built or improved.
Now comes the Harvey-Schiller
Kurniture Co. who announced the re-
cent purchase of some new equip-
ment that is absolutely necessary to
give the best possible service in
their particular line. They have
purchased a brand new combination
funeral car and ambulance which
they propose to induct into service at;
a very early date, to bring their fun- ¡
era! directing service up to the stand-
ard and afford them an opportunity
of possibly adding an additional fea-
ture un ambulnce service that has
never been in vogue before.
Mr. Harvey, senior member of the
firm stated fhat the new coach is of
the Henney make, and will be very
handsome in appearance, and serv-
iceable in practice. The motor will
be constructed with eight cylinders,
for quietness and to reduce vibration 1
in starting and operation. The body
is to be finished in the latest color.
with blue gray Spanish leather up-
holstering of the Bomgarden type.
The coach will be so built that it |
can be easily and quickly converted
into either an ambulance or a funeral
car, which ever the occasion might
demand. While not in use it will be
arranged and kept for emergency as
Mr. Harvey stated that the new
coach is finished elaborately through-
out. It will have a very comfortable
cot for the use of a patient. There
will be two chairs for attendants
and an electric fan. There will be
a side door for the convenient en-
trance and exit of attendants.
When the coach is desired to be
used for funerals it can be quickly
and satisfactorily arranged for the
purpose and will afford them the
best means of rendering the public
the most up-to-date service.
The old car which hay been in
servil e for some six years will be re-
tained by the firm and will be rented
to the colored trade when sought.

BETTER HOME MARKET
FDR DAIRY PRODUCTS
If all the Southern folks and town
folks w< ul<l remember these four
simple ideas, it is impossible to say
how greatly they would enlarge the
market for dairy products: -
1. When a cold drink at a soda
fountain is wanted, consider whether
anything is better than cold, nourish-
ing sweet milk, or a glass of cold,
health producing buttermilk.
2. When dessert is wanted at any
hotel, cafe, or restaurant, or for one's
own dinner-table on Sundays or any
other day, remember that no other
dessert is so nourishing, wholesome
and universally acceptable as well
made ice cream (made with plenty
of real cream). In the language of
the popular new song:—
We all scream
Kor lee Cream.
3. All boys and girls, and most old-
er people, should drink milk at meals
instead of coffee or tea. In the fust
place, it is more healthful and nutri-
tious. And this second fact may also
deserve consideration: Coffee or tea
takes money out of the South, and
even out of America; milk keeps
money right in our own neighbor-
hoods and in our own pocketbooks.
4. Just to the extent that the
farmer and his family use milk and
butter instead of store-bought food
products, just to that extent he is
getting his living in a way to get and
keep profits on his own labor and
keep these profits in his own pur e;
there are no expenses for freights,
commissions, storage, middleman's
services and middleman's profits such
as food products call for. Editor

E. C. Peters, who lives near Dean-
ville, came by the News office the
other day and left $1.50 for another
year's subscription to the Caldwell
News. He reported much replanting
of cotton going on around his com-
munity, but says he himself played
lucky by not having any cotton plant-
ed when that late spell of cold weath-
er came along.
Mr. Peters has been a citizen of
Burleson county for twelve years and
as a matter of fact, is a well content-
ed soul and is always optimistic of
the future. He believes in growing
a small crop of cotton, ample feed
and also in having a good flock of
chickens. He and Mrs. Peters have
111) white leghorn hens which are
laying from 60 to 75 eggs a day, and
now he has in addition 200 chicks
six weeks old. He says the chickens
pay for their keep and produce a
profit, but they are not any great
big money makers. He believes in
cotton for a money crop. Last year
he had 18 acres in cotton from which
he gathered 9 bales. This was just
about his limit of capacity to work
and the half bale per acre was a good
Mr. Peters lives in a hilly section
ami says he plants both his corn and
cottun in 42-inch rows which helps
to retain the moisture better on land
where water drains off quickly. In
his corn field he plants blackeyed
peas between the corn, the corn being
planted every other row, and later
the peas in the alternate hills.
He also has his Irish potato patch
but he says he has not been extreme-
ly successful in getting a heavy yield
of them. To successfully grow po-
tatoes he believes there is much to
study out as to the proper kind of
soil or the kind of season to cope
with; and then there is the potato
bug with his meddling which may re-
All of which pictures a routine of
endeavor on the Peters farm that
looks promising for the harvest a-
head and keeps the optimistic spirit
of success well in hand.

Depression in the sugar-cane in-
dustry in the United States, brought
about largely by decreased yields
caused by diseases, has resulted in
an expedition to New Guinea, organ-
ized by the United States Department
of Agriculture and composed of de-
partment specialists and others, who
started on this expedition early in
April. An airplane will be used in
searching the island for disease re-
sistant canes. New Guinea is be-
lieved to be the native home of sugar
cane and it is probable that varieties
tilerant or resistant to diseases have
developed there naturally, and it is
hoped that resistant varieties can be.
