'Wide Tre W'diins.
One of the best w's to Pre
vent the formation of ruts and
to keep earth roads in repair is
by the use of wide tires on all
wagons carrying heavy burdens.
In most foreign countries they
not only use the four to six inch
tires on market wagons, but on
many of the four-wheel freight
wagons, in addition to wide tires,
the rear axles are made fourteen
inches longer than the front ones,
so that the hind wheels will not
track and form ruts. Water and
garrow tires aid one another in
destroying the roads, while on
the other hand wide tires are
road wakers. They roll and
harden the surface, and evety
loaded wagon becomes in effect,
a road roller. The difference be
tween the action of a narrow tire
and wide one is about the same
as the difference between a crow
bar and a tamper; the one tears
up and the other packs down.
By using wide tires on heavy
wagons the cost of keeping roads
in repair would be greatly re
duced. The introduction in re
cent years of wide metal tires
which~ can be placed on the wheels
of any narrow-tired vehicle at a
nom.'nal cost has removed a very
serious objection to the proposed
substitution of broad tires for
the narrow ones now in use.

The Remarkable Growth of Cotton
The cotton oil industry in the
south has made remarkable
strides. The Manufactur e r s'
Record reports a growth of from
40 wills in 1880 to 500 mills in
1901. And the limit has not yet
been reached, if indeed all the
possibilities of cotton seed are
comprehended. There has been
an increase in capitalization -in
+ 'eof $46,500,000.

MEET THE HIGH PRICE OF MEAT. b
How Farmers Can Make Money Out of a
Cattle. The Best Food Right at Home. is
What makes the price of beef so e(
high? The piice of anything is high C(
either because the demand outstrips
the supply, or because of some combi
nation of dealers to artificially raise
the price. -'
But whether a price is naturally or
artificially high, the~ remedy is the
same-greatter production on an inde- 'I
pendent basis. Fortunately for con- ti
sumers of beef, and fortunately for the ti
southern farmer, theie is no trust or
combination that can prevent a most
lavish production of beef, if only the
way is pointed out.
The breeding of cattle on a farm, at
least i: an unsystematic manner, is "
natural and almost spontaneous. But H
in the absence of some systenatic way sI
to fo'ow up the subject, and select the j..
proper animals. and care for thein c
through the winter, and finally prepare
them to inake fat, tender beef, there
is no proper beef production on the
farm. The farmer in the cotton region
Is surrounded with all the elements to
make beef raising successful. The
climate is such that there is natural s4
forage most of the year. It requires 01
just a little forethought to provide for
the few winter months. The mate- ls
Iial-cheap material-is always at
hand, cotton seed meal and cotton seed
hul:s. The meal and hulls are offered tc
just as you want them by the Southern r
Cotton Oil company, of the Carolinas
r.ndJ Georgia, and may be bought at
any of the local mills or from head, T
riuarters at Columbia, S. C., Atlanta.
Ga.. S:' .nnah, Ga., or Charlotte,
N. C. Mixed in the proper proportion, ai
this makes the most nutritious and ac
I eptable feed that is now available. It
is a feed, which by varying the propor- r(
tions will answer equally well for a
;ustaining ration or for a fattening
tation. It contains all the ingredients
of nutrition, namely, fat, nitrogen and
r-arbohydrates. The cotton seed meal fr
contains fat and nitrogen and the hull I
A- good sustaining ration is made up
of 24 pounds of huls and 4 pounds of
mneal per day, and a good fattening
iation is 20 pounds of hulls aud 5 tI
pounds of meal. These proportions in sI
both cases must be varied to suit i -l
flividual .cases---''. -- -T" K
iiion and taste of the animal. In
fattening cattle, the ration should be
jin with more hulls and less meal and
he proportion. of meMl gradually in- "
creased. A steer may b~e fattened ano at
out ini good canditioni for the nu:rket y
.nx 400 pounds of cotton seed meal and \l
one ton ,if hulls. At average prices.
the cost of this feed in the southern
tates would be about $9i.00.
There is great profit in fattenIng t
beef for the market. even at ordinary
ridcs, but at present the Industryv W
hould prove unusually attractive. The -
