thc insane. Governor. Blease's un

"I am writing this letter to you to
beg that you will bend all your ener

of gentlemanly .conduct, high char

fulness and honor. I have evor. met,

Senator Sullivan now haa on the

which will allow tho city of Anderson

been favorably reported in the house
and ls practically assured of passage.

waa no auch, thing as a dual-purpose
cow. this being H COW which was
equally fitter! for the beef type and
the dairy type and said that oaca
required a special breed pf cattle. He
advised that dairying in' this section
of tho country was far more lucra
tive If properly carried out and if tho
farmer lived near to. a town. nc
Bald tbat it took the aamo amount
of feed to produce one pound of fut
on beef oMiUo ?hat lt does for one gal
lon of milk..
Tho association voted to stand
behind the 'Jersey cow as the dairy
type and then took up u discussion
of which type of beef cattle was pre
ferable. Eleven members signified
their intention x of breeding cattle
along extensivo Unes and by a ma
jority vote, adopted the Hereford as
the type. (Mr. Watt advised that
thoBo who contemplated the purchase
of stock consult with him before do
ing so.
, Thc question of the proper type of
hog to use for breeding purposes
was taken up and aroused some con
siderable discussion. Tlie Berkshire
waa finally selected as the best type
for this cou nt rv.
Five of those present said that they
were extensively engaged in the
raising of mules and a discussion waa
engaged ip relative to brood mares.
The Percheron, weighing from 1,300
to 1,400 pounds waa said to bo the
beat type , for breading purposes. It
waa tlie concensus of opinion that It
is better to send west for tho breed-1
era rather than to buy oa tho local
market.
The .next*'meeting of the association
is to take ?lace In Andufson on Feb

than usual on account of tho fact
that there b> a conflict "of datos with
