WHO BUILT FIRST
SILO IN THE STATE?
Col. Clark of Columbia and Col.

farming in South Curolina, also be
ing personal friends, there is now a
friendly contest among their friends
?a examining the records, etc., to see
whether a IUchlaud or an Anderson
county man holds the houpr of build*
ing the first silo lu South Carolina.
Col. J. C. stabling's statements as
to the first silo are as follows:
Thai In February 1880 he inspected
the silo, feeding of ensilage and tho
stock fed 'rom the silo of Charle'a
K. Harriso; i ' Plckcnaville, Md., and
at the Soot ii (Jan Una state fair et
1880 he made a statement before
members cf the state agricultural and
mechanical society that thlB new
method of preserving stock feed waa
a success. This statement induced
this society to offer a premium of ?if
ty dollars, for the best sample of m
silage at the 1881 fair, ir as many as
four of the members would pledge
to build a silo and make this the con
teat, whereupon Col. II. F. Crayton
of Anderson, W. A. Clark of Colum
bia, Alexander McBeo of Orcenville
and J. C. St rib! ing cf Pendleton an
nounced they.would build sites. This
contest resulted In J. C. Strlr.Uug
winning the $50 prize ut the State
fair in 1881, because of the fact that
the silo of W. A. Clark was not f-n
lalted at this time.

Thia schedule as above was duly

by J. e. Strlbllng before the fair of
1881, and below will ho fou.i l a ropy

commissioner of agriculture, A. P.

bis urguments against ensilage upon
this knowledge, tbe farmer can read
ily eeo that he too needs practice
as all know that stock do better on
green crans than they do on dried
hay, to say nothhlng of spoiled hay.

"Another greet advaatuge ip feed
ing ensilage is that it 1B in a very
convenient condition for feeding. It
being moist, dry meal or bran can be
stirred in and mixed with thc moist
forage and ult, meal and forage is
eaten together in just the desired pro
portions. The meal is raised and re
masticated with the forage, which en
sures good digestion of the meal. If
the dry meal, or meal in slops, ls
fed with dry long forage cf any kind,
lt will be observed that the meal or
slop is devoured first, ant*, not being
mixed with the forage, (which holds
it in the first stomach,) the meal or

find the meal fed to the cow in the

This makes' it plain that fully one
half the meal and slops fed cowa in

That the pea vine ls the most desirable
plant to ensilage on account o' its
