GOES IN FOR HOGS.
B. 31. Aull Plans Big- Hoe: Ranch Near
Anderson county is to have the largest
hog ranch in the Southern States,
and p^ns already laid warrant the
conclusion that the farm will be operated
i long methods heretofore un
know.i to this section 01 ine country.
This farm is ;.ow being arranged by B.
M. Aull, a farmer who lives 11 miles ;
norch of Anderson, in Autun neighborhood.
Mr. Aull has already fenced
and cross-fenced his ranch, and is
now at work putting in swine houses
and other quarters, all of which will
be completed within a short time. He .
will start immediately with about 500
hogs, all of imported stock, which
will be bred with weJl known breeds.
Mr. Aull proposes to put one-half
of his land in bermuda grass, and ]
about two-thirds of the remainder of
his land into grain. He will pasture
his hogs on the bermuda grass in tie
fall and winter, and in the summer
will feed the hogs on grain. In this
way he will not have to import or

expects to raise the hogs at a cost of !
production under that of the Middle
West of at least 1 1-2 cents a pound
This development is considered one
of the very biggest of its kind, not only
in Anderson county, but in the entire
Southeast, as it is believed to
be the forerunner 01 ine creaung 01 a
mammotli live stock industry in the
Southeast, where it is known that
large Western packers have for some
time contemplated entering and' putting
in plants. It is stated on reliable
information that just as soon as
sufficient hogs and cattle are raised in

While Washington, with a production
of 4,099,775,000 feet in 1912, still
holds first place in the country, the increase
for'that State was only 35,000,000
feet over the total for the preceding
year. On the other hand, Louisiana,

feet, gained 340,000,000
feet over the previous year.
In 1911 Oregon was in third place,
but last year gave way to North Carolina.
Texas went up from eighth
place in 1911 to sixth place last year.
Arkansas dropped from sixth to sev

twelfth to eighth. Wisconsin dropped
from seventh to ninth, Michigan held
tenth position, and Minnesota fell
from ninth to eleventh place.

the leading producing sections. Both

south was greater. The census for
1900 gave the southern States 38.7 per
cent of the total output of the country.
In 1907 this had increased to 45.7

Among the various species of lum

its long lead, the total for that wood

To Aid Live Stock Industry.
Assistant Secretary Galloway, of the
department of agriculture, says a
?** - ' ? il , ^ I
wasnmgion aispaicu tu tut; .\ew5 auu
Courier, has tentatively agreed with
Representative Lever, chairman of
the Louse committee on agriculture,
upon a plan for the encouragement of
the live stock industry in South Carolina.
The idea is to select about fifteen
counties where the greatest interest
is manifested in the movement and
then to apportion these counties between
two experts who will co-operate
with Clemson college and the department's
present farm demonstrators
in the Palmetto State.
.'After these persons, acting together,
shall have organized live stock associations
in the respective counties
fa<-rnlor Vincinocc nf livo ctnptf P
monstration will begin.
Mr. Lever thinks that this is the best
arrangement possible under the circumstances.
The modern traveler (the herioc explorers
of old belong to another
class) is formed by leisure, opportunity
and a certain easiness in pec
uniarv matters?like that plant whose
seed vessels burst in heat, so explodes
his shell of habit when the sun
of prosperity shines warmly, and forth
with he is scattered to the four winds.
"It's a small world," quoth he bromidi
cally, as he goes to and fro over the
earth, and finds therein many delightful
persons resembling himself. Like
the man in the cabinet lined with mir
rors, his reflections are numerous,
and all alike. Xo wonder he feels
like Sancho Pancho Pansa's hazelnut
inhabitant of a mustard-seed world.
