Somewhat Venomous' IMorl'_e Poultryrh_.c ... ! .
The N. O. States rightly
enough characterizes as venom
ous those newspapers which
still seek to lay the blame for the
Exposition fiasco upon Governor
Sanders As our readers know,
although we are no admirer of
- the Governor to put it mildly, we
have never been so palpably un
just as to ascribe this failure to
' him, hence we-have no share in
the epithet "venimous news
papers" and no feeling in the
Smatter whatsoever. •
But we do characterize as l
venomous indeed a statement i
made in the Wednesday issue of E
bthe States itself, while comment- I

i More Poultry for theFarms.
No careful observer can fail to
ly note the increased interest in
-I poultry raising in the South
ch during the last year. Like all
be other live stock raising, it is
or especially receiving attention in
,l the area being invaded by the
of boll weevil. It is simply astonish.
7e ing what capacity this little bug i
a. -the.boll weevil-has for making
to men think and even act. Alli
jn lines of live stock are receiving
- more attention than ever before
1e and poultry is coming in for its
share of increased attention.
is But, strange as it may seem the
Lt greater part of this increase in
f poultry interest is among the
people in town and to a much
s less degree among the farmers.
V This appears to us wrong. (
Surely there is no place where t
5 the opportunities for raising f
strong, healthy poultry at a min.
i|mum of cost, are so good as out c
on the farms- Not only is this c
true as regards the production i*
of utility poultry-eggs and birds a
for food-but it is especially true of
of the production of faincy poul- t.
try and birds for breeding. si
By much care, constant work ei
and intelligent feeding .and man. pi
agement, good poultry is pro- bi
duced on the small lots in or he
near the towns; but it requires gi
more intelligence and poultry
knowledge to raise good birds
s. under such conditions than it
does to accomplish the results on
Sthe farm. Why then, is most of
our best poultry raised in the
h small towns or near the cities?
The range which may be given
s the birds on the farm, except
e perhaps during the breeding
season, is almost unlimited and
this means a variety of feed,
Isuch as poultry require, and
I ample exercise, two things most
essential to the ecnomical pro.
B duction of vigorous birds.
B It requires some knowledge to
3 raise good poultry and this can
only be obtained by reading and
studying the experience of others
as set down in poultry journals
or agricultural papers and in
books, and by actual experience
in the handling of the birds. In ,
the past this has been thought
too . small a business for the 1
farmer,but if that is still the idea,
we insist that the women and i
children should be given an op. I
Portunity to add this additional t
industry to the farm. Nor would i
we limit them to the production
of eggs and the growing of birds a
to be used as food; but would in- a
sist that where the inclination t
exists they be given a chance to a
produce the best, to be sold as
breeders, or eggs to be sold for
hatching.-Starkville (Miss)Pro. a
