BULL ASSOCIATIONS HELPFUL
Acted as Wedge to Stimulate Dairy
Interest and Promote Better
Methods in South.
<Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
An example of how bull associ
ations, organized through the help of
the United States Department of Ag
riculture, act as a wedge to stimulate
?dalry interest and promote better
dairy methods ia a community is il
lustrated by the work which has been
done In Spartanburg county, S. C.
Five years ago little dairying was
done in this county, according to
dairymen of the department, but now
the Industry is making rapid progress
and up-to-date methods are being prac
ticed largely as a result of the organ
ization of a bull association.
Tho interest io- dairying dates from
the beginning of the purebred bull
movement In the vicinity of Carapobel
lo In 1916. At that time a breeder, in

.the hope of starting an Interest In bet
ter stock and creating a demand for
tis animals, presented a purebred bull
to the community. Little Interest was
taken, and the gift was accepted with
reluctance. The community was made
np pf small farms and there were few
Following this a dairymen's picnic
and exhibition of iive stock was held,
and MS a result of extension work car
ried on by the dairy division of the
depariment In co-operation with Clem
son Agricultural college more people
became Interested and bought cows.
Zn 1917 a co-operative bull association
was organized, from which developed
a live stock- show, and the members of
the association developed a keen Inter
?est in comparing the dairy animals
Another show was held In 1920, at
which prizes, offered by merchants and
bankers consisting of cash, merchan
dise, and savings accounts were
awarded. One of the features of the
show was a program of short talks on
local problems by the county agent,
leading farmers, and representatives
of the commercial club and the State
hersey Breeders' association. As an
indication of the Interest that was
?aroused those attending the show
voted unanimously to hold a commu
nity fair next fall, to include not only
dalry stock but other agricultural
SPRAY TO KEEP FLIES AWAY
Beat Time to Apply Repellent Is In
Morn?ng After Milking or Early
To keep cows quiet and contented
they should be sprayed to keep flies
off. A good time to spray is after
milking in the morning and before
milking time in the afternoon.
With a portable cart, made from a
half barrel by attaching wheels and
a spray pump and nozzle, two men
can spray 40 cows in five minutes.
"Thirty gallons of mixture will spray
40 cows twice a day for 10 days.
Formula: 4% quarts coal tar dip,
4% quarts fish oil, 3 quarts coal oil,
'3 quarts whale oil and 1% quarts oil
of tar. Dissolve 3 pounds laundry
soap In water, add the above Ingredl
-ents and bring the whole up to 30
gallons with lukewarm soft water.

BEST TIME TO SELECT CALF
if Dam Is Wide, Deep-Bodied Cow
(Giving Liberal Supply of Milk
Useful Animal ls Assured.
The best time to select a cow ls
at a few months of age, when lt may
be seen with Its mother, or, at any
rite, before lt ls weaned. Observe
the cnlfs mother. If she ls a wide,
deep-bodied cow with plenty of size
and Is giving a liberal supply of milk,
you may be reasonably sure that the :
calf, if Bl .-ed by a good bull and prop- j
erly cared for. will grow Into a useful
breeding animal. ?
A New Experience.
The writer returned from Sumter
to Columbia on Sunday night, Aug
ust 14. It had been a beautiful
Lord's Day filled with the sweetest
memories and spent in company
with some of thebest of people. We
doubt if America contains ?ny bet
ter people than those who were with
us in the morning and evening ser
vices of that good day.
The train from Sumter to Colum
I bia leaves Sumter about 9:30 o'clock
and reaches Columbia about 11:00
?o'clock. A few miles out from Co
lumbia the train was suddenly stop
ped. Soon a stream of men, partly
masked, came pouring through the
coach looking to the right nnd left
Handkerchiefs were tied over their
faces just below the eyes. Their hats
were pulled down completely over
their foreheads. All of them were
armed with pistols. The writer look- j
ed tc? his left, and saw that a num
?ber of men were outside the car,
'similarly disguised, walking to and
fro, heavily armed with guns and
something like five or ten minutes
some one cried out that "They are
not on here" and our train was al
lowed to move on. Upon inquiry I j
learned that it was a mob or part
of one that had been circulating S.
C. and Ga. for some days and that
it had stopped the train to search
for two prisoners who were supposed
to be aboard.
This writer does not remember
ever to have had an experience in
South Carolina that was so distress
ing. Personally there was nothing to
I fear. But the sight of an armed mob
on a Sunday night, trampling on the
I law of the State, and doing so with
utter impunity, searching for men
upon whom they might wreak their j
vengeance, was a first hand revel- j
ation of an element in our society
that in' some degrees removed from
those the waiter had been with all
We have in South Carolina two
classes that are about as far apart
as the poles. Perhaps every civilized
country has these same two classes.
But in some civilized countries the
better class is doing the ruling. In
South Carolina the better class is not;
and if one is to judge from recent
incidents, the better class is afraid
to tackle the lower fellows of the
baser sort.-Baptist Courier.
A Catholic Country.
We have all been reading of Aus-,

mo3t pitiable of any country in Eu

such desperate straits, unless it be

Austria is reduced to about one
third of its former size. It has lost
its mineral lands, its outlet to the
sea, and all of its associated provin

point to the countries around it. And
these, even those that were former
ly a part of the same kingdom, have
erected tariff walls that interfere
with Austria's trade. The country

does not make enough of any of the
necessities of life for its own people.
It cannot get raw material for its
factories, and it cannot get the
goods that it makes into other lands.
For generations it has had great pro
fessional and educated classes and
these, are now perhaps the most
hopeless of its citizens. They have
no openings for the things that they
can do and are unfitted for the man
ual labors that might be possible for
them. Austria's debt is so great that
it cannot borrow any money to pur
chase raw material, and its currency
has sunk almost to nothing. It is in
a pitiable condition beyond all des
cription. Dejection has settled down
on all classes and they walk in Egypt
Such is the condition of the land
that was for generations, and until
five or six years ago, the greatest
Catholic state in the world, the coun
try that was most subserviently de

Austria to this condition. But it is
a fact that it has reaped what every
other country has reaped that has
been devoted and loyal to the Pope.

It might be said that these calam

hardly be denied, that where Cathol
