Dealers Who Don't Watch Their Step
are Likely to Find Themselves
in Trouble
Orlando, Jan. 15. -Complaints are
being made to Federal Food Admin Administrator
istrator Administrator Braxton Beacham that deal dealers
ers dealers in feed are raising their prices
above all previously fixed margins,
and instructions have been issued by
Mr. Beacham to his staff of inspeo inspeo-tors
tors inspeo-tors to report every dealer who ad advances
vances advances his charges above a reason reasonable
able reasonable margin. A recent message from
Washington sets at rest any doubt as
to the continuance of control .of
prices by the food administration in
dealing with feeding stouff. This
'message reads as follows;
"Some feed dealers seem to have
'the impression that all restrictions
are off. While specific margins for
wheat mill feeds have been removed,
the rules limiting permissable annual
net extensions are still in force. The
note :o rule XXV-B-7 limits whole
salers to four per cent on'gross sales,
and rule XXV-J-1 limits retailers to
six per cent oh annual business."
i Since Administrator Beacham some
- lime ago fixed the margins of profit
for feed dealers at retail in this state,
no change has. been made by him in
the schedules then established," -and
he points out to the trade that those
margins are still in force. Those
who persist in raising their prices to
an unreasonable point are taking the
risk of encountering the enforcement

at the present time for the sole pur
;..-pose of preventing undue increase in

Whatever may bo the direct benefit,'
It is obvious from a study or the sit situation

is due more largely to the use of

Aim At Above ihe Average

(Prom Progressive Farmer, Dec. 31.)
For the average Southern farmer,.
we cannot think of a better resolution
for the New Year than one "calling
for. better than average yields. Aver Average

over a period of years, little more
than a living wage. But as the indi individual

cotton must see that our average of
about one-third of a bale per acre can

average rate of 15 to 20 bushels per

This statement Is reflected in the
fact that these tame lands In parts
of South Carolina are silling freely
for more than J10O.00 per acre.
I have been dealing with the effect
of the fertilizer industry and the use
of fertilizers on agriculture, because,
as I have sald.the effects on business
generally' must result from the effect
on agriculture, and it is obvious that
they must be innumerable. The fer fertilizer
tilizer fertilizer business In the South is one
of the most Important, and concerns
our prosperity more directly than any
other Industry, and in its effects no
other industry so ramifies into other
business or has a greater effect on the
industries and business generally.

Perhaps among the Industries which
are more particularly and directly ben benefited

spindles in the South, more oil mills,
more live stock, more people and more
commerce. The tobacco crop and our
trucking industry, requiring Intensive
fertilization and plant, food, would be
practically unknown to us. Ships bring
raw material from foreign shores in
greater quantities and in return carry
away more cotton and grain.
Cheapens Cost of Producing Crops
The commercial business is affected
In even greater proportion than the
farmer himself, and there is no farm farmer
er farmer in the South who is not benefited
by the Judicious use of commercial
fertilizer. Large crops give to the
people a greater supply at a lower cost

to the consumer, while on the other
hand small crops not only increase the
cost of production, but may increase in

It was my pleasure some years age
to know many more manufacturers
amd dealers in fertilizers than I know
at present, but I wish to testify to
the high character and intelligence of
those with whom I became associated.
The proper use of commercial fertil fertilizer
izer fertilizer by the farmer is obviously of vital
importance to the fertilizer industry
as well as to the farmer, and it is a
matter that should receive thought and
careful consideration at all times by
those who promote the industry

cotton with the seed is worth tl50, our
average per acre yield of one-thifii of a
bale is worth $50; but when we in increase
crease increase this to two-thirds of a bale,
worth $100. we have a gross profit of
$50 with which to pay for the cost of
the increase. Of course the cost of
this increased yield, if the matter be
gone about judiciously, will practically
never be as much as $50. More often
than not, in fact, It will be $25or less,
leaving a net profit of $23 or more per
acre. And the same rule will hold with
other crops and livestock as well. The
higher the yield per acre or per animal,
within certain limits, the greater the
net return.
The new year and the years to come
hold great things for the thinking, pro progressive,
