TURKEY FATTENED ON RANGE
Flesh Gains in Flavor and Tenderness
in Way lt Cannot If Fovi is
Confined.
It is Jost as important to have turk
eys In good plump condition before
marketing as it ls chickens. However,
a good many farmers regard this as a
'hard job simply because there is con
siderable misunderstanding as to the
correct way to go about the matter. i
Turkeys, if taken aright, are easily
fattened; in fact, easier than most
other fowls. But If turkeys have had
free range all summer, you cannot
fatten them with any satisfaction in
an enclosure. The change will cause
them to fret and' refuse' to eat and
thus they will lose Instead of gabi in
?weight. On the other hand; if they
range too much while being fattened,
they will "run off' the beneficial ef
fects of your extra feeding. The right
plan is therefore a compromise be
tween these two extremes. Teach the
turkeys to come up every evening at
least, and then stuff them with ali they
will possibly eat. You will soon find
them ranging at short distances only
and coming up even between feeding
times, where they should always be
able to lind some sort of attractive
food.
Don't try to fatten the turkeys on
corn alone. A close diet of new corn
often results bi bovyl troubles for the
turkeys just as it does for hogs, and
a' sick turkey is usually a dead turk
ey. Mix the fattening ration; variety
ls desirable for several reasons. Equal

parts of wheat, oats and corn, make
a good ration.. Give also an occasional
mash feed of equal parts of corn
. meal and wheat1 middlings which
-. makes a very rich feed, especially
if a quantity of ground beefscrap or
green cut bone is added.
As the turkey takes on fat, the
N flesh turna t? ? rich golden color. If
allowed reasonably free range while
the fattening process is going on, the
flesh gams in flavor and tenderness
In a way lt cannot if the bird were
fattened in close quarters.
PROPER FEEDING BIG FACTOR
No Matter How Good the Breeding
\May Be, Good Care Must Be
Given for) Best Results*
Breeding plays an important part
In successful poultry operation, but
the factor of good feeding and the
proper management of the flock plays
a far more important part than many
poultry keepers have been led to be
lieve. Breeding, no matter how good,
can accomplish but little in produc
ing results unless backed by proper
feeding and care. The best of breed
ing will give but poor results if the
proper care and feed are not com
plied with.
POULTRY TERMS
. A poult ls a turkey in its first
Nyear.
\By a trio ls meant a male and two
legales.
What is known as a yearling hon is
ene having laid 12 months.
A breeding pen is usually made up
of from six' to fourteen females and
a male.
A setting of eggs is usually counted
at 12, although many poultrymeu give
15 eggs.
When a chicken weighs between two
and three pounds it is called a spring
chicken.
A pullet is a female less than a
year old, and when over that age it
is a hen.
A stewing chicken weighs about
three' pounds and a rooster four or
more pounds.
A broiler ls a bird weighing two
pounds or less and which is six to
twelve weeks old.
A male bird less than a year old is
known as a cockerel. When over a
year old it ls a cock.
A poularde Is a pullet deprived of
the power of producing eggs, with
the object of great size.
Cramming is a system of forcing
feed into young fowls, either by hand
or machine, so as to put on extra
flesh.
The male chicken ls a cock and a
male goose is a gander, the male duck
a drake, th? male turkey a tom or
gobbler.
A cepon is a male bird deprived of
its generative organs for the purpose
of improving the weight and delicacy
?f Its carcass.
CARE ESSENTIAL
FOR YOUNG CALF
Young Animals Should Be Fed
Separately in Stanchions,
Never Together in Trough.
BREEDING GF CIS IMPORTANCE
Breeder Should Be Careful to Give
Them Same Amount of Milk at
Same Temperature From Clean
Buckets Every Day.
The first important factor in raising
good healthy calves ls breeding, and
the second ls the care they receive be
fore maturity.
The proper feeding of the calf be
gins before lt is born. Cows In a poor
condition give birth to weak calves
that are difficult to raise. A cow
should be "dried ofT at least six weeks
before calving. When about to "fresh
.'en" she should be given a clean stall
to avoid danger of Infection. If there

Them.
has been any white scours on the place
the navel should be disinfected with
tincture of Iodine Immediately after
birth.
Give Calf First Milk.
The calf must have the first milk
or colostrum, but may be taken from'
Its mother on the second or third day.
In case the cow should die ia calving
or develop disease, like garget or milk
fever, whole milk from another cow
should be substituted, and the calf giv
en two 05 three tablespoonfuls of
castor oil.
Whole milk should be fed until the
calf ls two or three weeks old. Skim
milk may be gradually substituted. It
ls of the utmost importance that calves
be fed the same amount of milk, at
the same temperature, from clean
buckets, at the same tin e each day.
Never feed enough milk to quite sat
isfy hunger. Sterilize the milk buck
ets, which are used for feeding the
calves, each day, the same as the milk
cans.
' Don't Feed Together.
You can't raise healthy calves by
feeding several of them, of different
sizes, In a trough. It ls economy to
feed calves In stanchions, asserts Geo.
H. Glover of the Colorado Agricultural
college. They will spill less milk and
cannot suck each other's ears, which ls
detrimental. The fat that has been
removed In skimming may In a meas
ure be substituted by adding a handful
of linseed or cornmeal to each pall of
ml'k. Calves will begin to eat hay and
grain at an early age, especially If
they are In the same pen with older
calves. The main thing In raising
calves ls cleanliness, regularity, and
freedom from overfeeding.
CATTLE TUBERCULOSIS IN U. S.
Map Made Showing Approximate Per
centage of Animals Infected
With Disease.
Tests of thousands of herds through
out the country have eaabled the
United States Department of Agricul
ture to make a map showing the ap
proximate percentage of cattle in va
rious states and counties Infected with
tuberculosis.
In nearly half the country, largely
In the South and Southwest, lt ls
shown that less than 1 per cent of the
cattle have the disease. In other
parts of the country the Infection
runs from 1 to 15 per cent, and in still
other localities, aggregating more than
50,000 square miles, more than 25 per
cent are believed to be tuberculous.
The figures are based on five years
of systematic testing, and should
prove of value In directing eradication
Work.
LEADERS IN EXTENSION WORK
Reports . Show 42 Young Men and
Women, Former Club Members,
Now Community Chiefs.
Reports to the United ?tates De
partment of Agriculture show that 42
young men and women, who, as boys
and girls, enrolled in club work to
learn the best way to raise a pig,
make bread, or do some other thing,
are now acting as local leaders of ex
tension work In their home communi
ties In Colorado. A number of former
club girls are leaders of canning, cloth
ing and millinery clubs. A grown-up
corn-club boy, now on a farm of hi?
own, has been community chairman
on crops and live stock and leader of
the boys' club for two years. A stock
judging team, which won lirst pince
at the .Colorado state fair, was trained
by a former duh member.
The Case of Joe Tolbert.
Senator Dial does not expect Jo
seph Tolbert to be confirmed as
United States Marshal for the West
ern District of South Carolina, re
gardless of the recent renewal of his
nomination by President Harding.
Tolbert's confirmation failed in the
list session cf congress, but is brought
up again by the president's action. It
appears that Mr. Tolbert never ap
peared before the sub-committee ap
pointed to investigate the charge
brought against him by Senator Dial,
and it was for that reason his case
failed in the last congress. Tolbert
was summoned many times to appear
but never did so.
Upon Tolbert's second nomination
by President Harding, Senator Dial
again objected and a new sub-commit
tee has been appointed consisting of
Colt of Rhode Island; Brandegee, of
Connecticut and Overman of North
Carolina. If Mr. Tolbert appears to
answer the opposition of Senator
Dial these gentlemen of the senate
will have the responsibility of report
ing to the senate, upon the Tolbert
case.
It is understood that Mr. Tolbert's
strength "with the president is because
of the interest the Republican Na
tional Committee has taken in his
case. Tolbert is the ranking member
of the national committee and has ap
pealed to the committee to stand by
him. The National committee is
therefore urging the president to
have Tolbert confirmed. Regardless j
of these influences Senator Dial is
still of the opinion the senate will not
confirm Tolbert's appointment.- I

Would Jail Intoxicated
Chauffeurs.
? member of the North Carolina
state legislature has signified his in
tention of introducing a bill provid
ing that anyone convicted of driving
an automobile in North Carolina
while intoxicated shall be sentenced
to serve time in jail or on the roads.
A New York judge said last week
that automobile accidents were be
coming so numerous that it might be
necessary to limit the number of
pleasure cars in America's largest
city.
There is no doubt that the automo
bile situation in large centers of pop
ulation is becoming a larger prob
lem, and the report of 53,000 deaths
due to automobile accidents in this
country during the past year has
caused . considerable thinking among
the people.
Of course not near all automobile
accidents are caused by intoxicated
chauffeurs, but it is reasonable tc
suppose that a good per cent of them
are.
A man with a tank full of gas and
a body full of booze is a dangerous
animal. The North Carolina legisla
tor may be right in thinking that the
fear of a road sentence would have a
sobering effect upon the drunken
driver.-Greenville News.
