STOCKS MARKS |
By W. D. S.
"Well Herbert, can you toll me
what an under-bit in u lion's right ear
was? And what was the use of It?"
In years past cattle, hogs and sheep
roamed over the old Holds and swamps
of tills COUllty. I'llfeiicod lands were
usf<| by the public as a stock range,
stock had to bo marked to show the
ownership. Hence the terms now ob
solete were then in great use. "A split
in the rlghl with a sinallow fork in the
left, or a smooth out off, with an un
Every fanner marked his young cat
tle, and when he turned them out In
the summer to graze and roundlng-up
time came he was ntdc to pick out
his own stock. Much depended on
tlx1 indentiflcatlon of stock -next win
ter's supply of bacon from the hogs,
stall-fed beef from the steers, and
the winter's supply of wool clothing
from the sheep for both white and
!;!:?.:?!;. Even the negrofiH In thfl quar
ters bad their marks on their chickens
to prove property. A certain toe on
the right or left foot was cut oft' of
the little chickens. Our mothers
marked geese in the same way. They
also took a hot iron and punched a
hole in the webbing between the toes.
Others cut so many rings in the loath- \
eis around their necks. Much de
pended on these little things. The
feathers had to lie plucked from the
Hock at the right time?when they
were ripe?before the quills were
blood sliotten, or next winter's feath
er hed was a failure.
These marks tended to keep the
peace of the settlement. Showed the
ipilck ownership of property and kept
down lights and law suits. One time
"Aunt I'radey" sent out bor son Itoh
to collect up !!:?' WOUdci'lllg geese.
Unfortunately he met up with a neigh
bor hoy on the same errand. They
got into a dispute about the geese and
the hoy struck Hob over the head with
a stick and killed him fur hours. The

Tills custom of free pasturage has
had a had Influence on our people;
ii has established rights which the
courts do not sustain a man to roam
over the land of his neighbor, fish and
hunt when he pleases, just like the
cattle did in olden times. Tins is
one reason it is so hard to enforce
game laws in South Carolina. People
will have to he gradually educated up
lo respect the rights of the land own-'
er. The fence law has done a good
work along this line.
