A THRIFTY FARMER OF SCOTTSBORO
--------
Miller Kelly Has Worked Wonders With
Worn Out Land That Had Been Abandoned
-------
Scottsboro, July 13.—Miller Kelly, is one farmer that believes in diversifying his crop. He has now growing on his pretty farm, one mile west of town, cotton, corn, peanuts, sweet and Irish potatoes, alfalfa, sorghum and peas, all in a high state of cultivation free from grass and weeds. A few years ago this farm that now looks like a well-kept garden was a terrible thicket of briars and bushes—one that had been allowed to run down and considered worthless and worn out.
Mr. Kelly also has fine hogs and a heard of fine cows. His home, barn and outhouses are all good, and you can see thrift and industry all about the place. He uses the latest improved tools for cultivating his crops. He always sells at a fancy price his King’s early cotton seed. In the last few years by grading his seed up every year he has brought them to as near perfection as can be. He and his four sons comprise the force.
