Advice from Cousin Alexander Copeland on How to Make Farming Pay

Mr. A. Copeland, a successful farmer near Spartanburg, S. C. was asked how can farming be made to pay, and he answered:
"By working six days in the week, drinking no whiskey, chewing no tobacco, and making all the domestic manures possible. But you must not spend too much time in making these home-made manures. Use commercial fertilizers to finish out. All lands should have some help. The reason that farming does not pay is that farmers do not work six days in the week, and much they do is lost for want of judgement."
