PUBLISHED WEEKLY. WINNSBORO, S. C., WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 1902. ESTABLISNED 184
Some Timely Sugestions.
Mr. Editor: I desixe to call at
tenAion of all those who are inter
ested in the fowl and pet depart
ment of theoFairfield Agricultural
Society, and in fact all those who
desire to improve their flocks of
ultry, that now is the time to
begin work. I believe our de
partment was the best feature of
the air; certainly attiacted its
full share of Yisitors, and was
favorabl spoken of by *11. This
is gratiyging and ought to en
courage us to put forth our best
eforts for this year.
riuMdparticularly urge those
who intend buying improved
fowls,.or eggs for hatching to do
so at once, . or at least to begin
preparation for receiving them.
A eiistion asked by agreat many,
and one that perplexes all of us
is what -variety to buy. The
questioi should be: Do I want
eggs An- abundance or chickens
for the table? For there is no
breed of fowls that-excels in both
these particulars. The best egg
producers are not the best table
fowls, and the best table fowls
are ;not the beat egg producers.
Solim hsve to face this difficulty
anddecide at the outset what we
want, eggs or chickens. However,
this question is not so important
to us 1s it is to our less fortunate
northern and wastern brethren,
for we have unlimited range, ideal
climate, and mild winters, all of
which have to be considered by
those not so well favored as we
are in their selection of any par
ticular variety. It is not so im
portant then what breed, but that
we select srcme breed. Keep them
pure and vigorous by always se
leeting the best one for breeding
purposes and.by introddeing new
blood each season or as often as
eeded. r1ovide warm and com
ble narters for them, feed
t e fat and
of course, if too fat, cab
My. Keep them well supplied
with'clean, pure water, change
their food from time to time,
give them a little more attention
and our flocks of fowls will soon
b.dome a source of profit and
pleasure to us. Now, if you are
interestad and have determined
to order a trio of fancy fowls, or
perhaps one or two settings of
eggs, as suggested in the begin
ning, do so now. The early
hatehed chickens are generally
the best ones. You need not in
vest much money. Eggs from
some of our-most reliable breeders
can be~purchased at from one to
two dollai s per setting. Select
the variety you like bet, send on
your'mloney, give the eggs to the
best hen you have, and when
they batch, give them your atten
tion and you will be surprised at
the pleasure they afford you, to
say nothing oif the profit. Tis
fall select your best ones and
bring them with you to on:r
county fatr, and -in pleasant
rivalry with your neighbor enter
them for a prize. Help make
our departent the best feature
of the fair, and by your presence
helpinaie'it a time of pleasant
and profitable social intercourse.
I write this -with the hope that
it may ini.some measure stimulate
those who'have already done so
much towards improving the
* quality of fowls in our county to
renewed efforts to strengthen
their purposs andl to encouirage
them in establishing-this industry
5n our midst. I have said nothing
atbout the various breeds. All of
them have same good quality; all
of them have their champions. I
simply desire to emphasize the
importance of getting some dis
tinct variety, and giving them
some attention. It will pay you
in pleasare, it will make your
home more attractive, it will pay
S you in dollars and centsi.
8 If I have not already taken up
too much of your valuable space,
permit me to give the experienee
of two gentlemen, one a farmer,
the other a bookkeeper in one of
our largest grocery stores, show
ing the importance of keeping
nothing but improved chiiekeus,
boIkth in egg~ and meat production.
The farmer broughlt two coops ef
chiskens to town, one tilled with
high grade Plymouth Rocks, the
other fitied with mngrels, com
-o brn nya fowls. He readily
disposed of the foimer at otiree
for a dollar, but had some/trouble
selling the latter at 2W and 25
cents eac. Tre i& lesson in
we shon learn. The
other a most reliable gentleman
of our town gathered* 15 dozen
eggs from a flock of 15 hens dur
ing the month of January. A
few of his hens did not lay during
the month or his average would
have been even better. This
same gentleman called my atten
tion to the fact that his flock of
hens have laid eggs, five of which
weighed 14 ounces, and that he
had weighed eggs that were pur
chased in the store and that 13
of them only weighed 17 ounces.
I would like to touch upon this
matter of size and quality of eggs
offered for sale in our town, but
forbear believing however that
eggs should be bought and sold
