South Carolina is better prepared to
clay for the raising of live-stock than
ever betore in her history. Not only
is there more dry feed and pasturage
in the state, but at last there are mar
kets also--good markets. that put the
South Carolina stock raiser on an
equal footing with the citizen of any
other locality. Having made many
preparations and taken numerous pre
liminary steps and after making two
actual experiments last year, the ex
tension division of Clemson College is
prepared now to undertake to super
vise the feeding and marketing of
thousands of cattle and hogs this win
ter aind spring and is making arrange.
The live stock markets of the state
are at Greenville. Greenwood, Rock
1111. Columbia, Florence and Charles
ton. At each point livestock pens are
under construction. These cities are
concentration and selling points. A
man raising cattle and hoks will ship
them for market to the one of these
points nearest to him. The railroads
have granted what is known as a sell
ing-in-transit rate which will help
greatly in reducing the cost of trans
portation. In short, the facilities for
marketing are already here.
Buyers Coming Here.
W. W. Long, state agent and direc
tor of extension at Clemson College,
has made arrangements with a number
of prominent stock buyers of the east
'ert markets to attend the sales in
South Carolina. There will be two
sales periods this season, one a mid
winter sale and the other a spring
sale, and the buyers will come to
South Carolina on these two occasions
and go from one to another of the cen
tral market points. This reverses the
older order of things, under which the
So1th Crolina farmer shipped his cat
tle to eastern markets and trusted to
his luck for what he could get for
*This co-operative marketing plan
has received wide attention outside
the state and a nutmber- of leading
farm pulic(ations have noticed it fav
orably. 'it is also considered by the
United States department of agricul
ture as one of the best methods possi
ble of developing the livestock industry
of the South.

ing farmers so to arrange their fl
nances that they can feed some cattle
this fall and winter.
How to Select Feeders.
Farmers who have not yet selected
their feeders should (1o so at once. In
choosing feeders, look for the animal
with the blocky form. Do not take
rangy, leggy stuff with shallow bodies.
The constitution of the animal has an
important bearing on his value as a
feeder. This is Indicated by a short,
broad head, broad muzzle, open nos
trils, large heart girth and clear eye.
Look especially at the head, as the re
mainder of the animal generally corre
sponds to the head. Pick a short,
Another important point is feeding
capacity. Just as a dairy cow is a
machine for turning feed into milk,
so is a beef animal a machine for turn
ing feed Into beef. Select feeders with
big feeding capacity.
Quality, which is important also, Is
'indicated by general form, fineness of
hair, size of bone and horn and thick
ness of skin.
Farmers who have stock of their
own breeding are advised to keep
them for feeding and not to sell them
off grass this fall. It is profitable to
.finish cattle. The finished steer is the
one that brings the most money.
Care of Cattle.
The care of feeding cattle is most
important. There is much truth In the
old Flemish proverb that "the eye of
the master fattens his cattle." Two
men may give their cattle exactly the
same feed, yet one lot of stufr may do
much better than another, merely be
cause of the difference in care. One
point to remember is to watch the cat
tle closely for scours. When an animal
scours the chances are that it is get
ting too much feed or unbalanced feed.
Another point to be observed is regu
larity of feeding and watering. Let
ting a steer go several hours past Its
feeding time may cause it to gorge It
selt to such arr extent as to develop
serious trouble with its: digestion. In
general, a safe rule is that the cattle
that are best cared for wifl fatten best.
The feeding of the cattle and~ hogs
for these co-operative markets will be
directed by the demorrstration and er
tension forces of Clemson Coflege. The
feeding will be supervised' directly by
the county demonstgation agents.
wll'ile all special cases will receive at
terrtion from the ivestockt specialists:

The Kaiser says Germany is "unite-d."
Maybe- so, by force. But when. one
looks at some of' bhe Gerrman figures of

Would once wear a Carhartt Overall, no
storekeeper could ever sell him another
brand. There is more cloth in it; the cloth
is woven in the Carhartt Mills in South
Carolina; the dyes used are right; the fit
and feel of the Overall is a good deal better;
it will outwear two pairs of the ordinary +
kind. Cost a little more, but goes a lot 0 ,
further. If you stood every man in overalls
in this country up in a long row, likely
every third or fourth man would have on a
pair of Carhartt's or be sorry he didn't. +
