The wind was blowing a gale and the flames swooped down almost to the roof of the Yoconi house. The roof and the side of the house next to the fire were scorched.

TERRACING INCREASED YIELD HY 20 PKKCF'Vr Increased production of 20 per .cut in cotton and corn iwsiilte-l from terracing of two l'arnis*ip Ail,sir county where a cheek was mm|e, says Marry H. llayinaii. county :.g-en 1, Mr. and Mm. Frank Finch of Decatur, Ark., were guests of bis parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jason Finch, lasl week. A story in the Service, issued like this: ! "Milk and cream from Hi cows netted F. A. Strauss, of near- Stilwell. a net income of S 1,01)0 last year besides the feed they furnished for other stock on the farm, lie raised all the calves from these cows and kept a herd of hogs and 500 chickens which were fed skimmed milk. It is estimated that each of these cows was worth $22 per mouth, says Harry H. Hayman, county agent." Mr. Strauss has what might lie termed an ideal farm. He says (hat he decided long ago that he coilh\ not make a living at straight farming and for Hie past few years lie has devoted his time to dairying, poultry raising and hog raising. What he grows on his farm is used mainly for the purpose of feeding his livestock and poultry and derives Irs cash income from these sourc-es..................... Mr. Slrauss says that bis average income from his farm is between three and four thousand dollars. He grows almost everything that is used on the table so that most of. the income is net. 11 is a revelation to look inside the cellar al the Strauss farm and see the many things that Mrs. Strauss lias can ncd for the winter months. A continuation of the journey on io the smoke bouse and the potato bouse will show a few reasons why Mr.Strauss doesn'l need 'farm relief" to make money. Early in the fall his barns were filled lo capacil) with hay and :-;raiii to winter the stock. The cow stalls arc in the- center of the hugh bay barns and are as warm as a steam heated parlor. Over-head carriers help pile and manage the hay that he stores for winter use. A farm light plani suppl'es electricity for light at the house and the barns and to run the motor for the cream separator. A windmill pumps witter for the water system. In a sturdy built stall stands a registered and prize-winning Jersey bull. In the hog lot there is usually two or three liltcr.s of new Duroc pigs. Over the whole place there is the hum of industry aiiil the feeling of peace, happiness anil prosperity. In talking lo Mr. Strauss he attributes all this to diversified farming and hard work. He says thai the farmer must work al his job every day and every month in the year. He must plan months and years ahead and study his problems just as much as any other business man.
