of Good Breeding and Individuality.
Clemson College, Dec. 22.-Never
toefore waa th? farmer in South Caro
lina so serious about a serious matter
as today. Just how he can emerge
iron: a cotton-covered crysalis and find
?his land stocked with good hogs, cat
tle and sheep is truly a difficult prob
lem. The quickest, cheapest and best
way to improve live stock is to invest
in the right sort of a sire and, having
purchased him, give him good feed
and care, says Prof. L. V. Starkey,
Chief of the Animal Husbandry Di
TiBion, who makes the following brief
suggestions in the form of fourteen ad
vantages of a pure bred sire of good
breeding and good individuality.

the herd as rapidly as 50 pure
The value of a pure bred sire is
not seen entirely in thp ..rst gen

couraged by a good market for
their breeding stock.

community, it is an easy matter
to purchase one or two pure bred
females and soon be in the pure
7- Co-operation Possible:
If there are as many as four or
five pure bred sires in the commu
i nity there is an excellent oppor
tunity to co-operate by exchanging
8- Pure Bred Sires More Valuable
Than Scrubs After Their Period
I of Usefulness is Over:
1 A 2.000-pound pure bred bull is
i worth more for beef than a scrub
which usually weighs 1,200 to 1,400
A pure bred sire will sire individ
uals more like himself than like
the dam. This is due to concen
trated blood lines.
16*-Increased Value Through Uni
Buyers will always pay more for
a uniform carload of livestock j
than for a mixture of scrubs and
11- Offspring Worth More:
A calf is worth $5 to $10 more, a
yearling $15 to $20, and a two-j
year-old $25 to $30 more if sired
by a purebred bull.
12- Wealth Created:
The farmers' gain is not some-j
, body's loss, for a farmer can j
; raise a better calf and no one is !
the poorer. He thus creates
1S-Good Influence on Owner:
When a mas has purebred live
stock on his farm he naturally
takes more interest in it and feeds
and cares for it botter than he
The pure bred bull means more
money, which m turn makes pos
sible better homes, better st hools,

Methods of Pruning at Planting.
?Correct methods of pruning should be
carefully employed; otherwise, tho
.hap? of thc tree might be completely
destroyed. At planting, all broken,
[bruised and otherwise damaged roets
should be removed, and the tree in
spected for diseases and insects.
For apple, pear and plum trees two
years old, three to five well branched,
remove the central leader and all out
er branches back eight or ten inches to
.utside buds. One-year whips of ap
ples and pears should be cut back to
single stem of 24 to 30 inches, and one
year whips of peaches and plums
jShould be cut back to single stem 16
ito li baches. One-year cherry whips,
should be cut to 24 to 30 inches high,
and two-year cherries should be cut
to three to five laterals and a central
leader each eight to ten inches.
Two-year grapes should be cut to
two canes six inches above ground,
two or three buds each. Muscadine
grapes, two years, should be cut te
three to fire canes six to eight inches

it is hermetically sealed
