FEEDING YOUNG PIG8
CLEMSON EXTENSION WORK. ARTICLE XLII
At this time of year most of the
sows have farrowed their spring lit
ters and it is very Important that the
little pigs bo kept In a thrifty, grow
ing condition and developed to maturi
ty at a minimum cost. A fender
around the farrowing pen made of
poles or scantling ahout ten inches
from the wall and eight inches from
the floor will save the lives of many
little pigs and prevent the sow from
crushing or injuring them.
t'ntii the pigs are a month old the
only way of feeding them is through
the mother, and th? amount of milk
given by the sow lias a decided offecl
on the future development of tho
Our plan of handling bogs at (Mem
son College is to keep the sow with
young pi^s In the farrowing pen which
has a small lot adjoining for three
to four weeks after farrowing, then
turn them out on green rye. clover,
and Bermuda grass pasture or rape,
Which are the only green crops we
have at present, Separate small
movable houses are provided for each
sow and in addition to the feed given
the sow. which consists of a little
corn and wheat middlings, the pigs are
fed In separate pens on skim milk and
middlings made into a thin slop, and!
TO SET PRISONERS FREE
WHO ARE I IN ILL HEALTH
Governor Mouse Announces that Pris
oners who are in Chronic III Health
at the Penitentiary wIH be Given
Columbia, May 10. Following a per
sonal Inspection of the penitentiary
this morning in company with Chair
nun Sanders of the board of direc
tors, Governor Blense announced Ids
Intention to SOt free all prisoners dis
abled by chronic ill health.
This will remove from I lie big prison
many convicts serving life sentences.
The governor will in each case re.
quire a certificate, from the prison
physician as to the fact of the (Us
ability. He said such convicts were r,
burden to the state.
The governor also said lie would not
call a special?sesslon of the directors
but at their mooting on Juno 7th would
urge them to cancel the hosiery mill
contract. If this cannot be done leg
ally, an effort may be made to have
the mill condemned by the health au
thorities on sanitary grounds.
Governor Blease issued the follow
"Columbia. S. C. May 19.
"In company with Chairman San
ders, of the borad of directors. Dr.
Butler, prison physician; Capt. C. C.
Roberts, captain of the guards, my sec
retary. Mr. Blackburn, and Mr. Green,
of the News and Courier. I have made
a thorough inspection of the peniten
tiary buildings and grounds. I find
the buildings and grounds clean, well!
kept and, in my opinion, the sanitary
conditions are as good as could bo i
expected, taking into consideration!
the goneral condition of the buildings. '?
I find that new building:; are needed (
and Improvements needed In the old
buildings, Which I think the legisla
ture should appropriate money for or
allow the directors to use the money
which they have or will have on hand
for there purposes.
"I lind some prisonors who are help
loss and in a pitiful condition. Upon
their nssurnuco to me thai they have
a good home to Which they can go,
and that they will not be a burden
to the county from which they came.
I promised to parole them, which I
Intend to do (as soon as 1 can get the
proper information from the clerks of
Courts? upon the recommendations of
Dr. Butler and Mr. Sanders and Capt.
\s to Hosiery Mill.
"As to the hosiery mill?this Is an
old building; some of tho machinery
is old and out of date, and In my opin
ion not In proper condition for ser
vice. I find the building clean and
tho machinery seemingly well kept;
however, I am of the opinion that no
convicts should ho required to do work
In this mill. I believe It detrimental
to their health, and I do not believe
that it is for the best Interest of the
people of the State and for that rea
son I think the hosiery mill contract
should be cancelled and other labor
provided for these prisoners. If It
were voluntary It would bo all right,
for these people to work In this mill,
nt their own risk, as Is done in the hos
iery mills and in the cotton mills all
over the State, but I do not think
that the State should compel labor In
this mill. As, In my opinion, it Is de
trimental to the health of the prison
ers and will result In great Injury
both to those w'thln the walla and to
the citizens of the State from those
who leave the walls and go among tho
people at large.?News and Courier.
!f no milk is available use middlings
and ground corn or six parts ground
corn and one part tankago. The llttlo
pigs also learn to eat the green feed
and when two months old are weaned.
Having learned to eat well, they will
feel the loss of their mothers very
llttlo nor are tholr digestive organs
deranged by any sudden change of
Tills system of feeding Is continued
until the early sorghum. Spanish pea
nuts, and later soy bean lots are ready
and the corn and cowpeas. it is im
portant that the pigs be given plenty
of Clean water and shade and kept
free from lice by using any cheap
'navy oil or a five per cent, solution
Of any of the standard coal tar pro
duets used for this purpose. Farmers
must not forgtt that srze is largely
the result of feed as well as inheri
fance. and while the pig may Inherit
large size, it requires constant, liberal
feeding to develop it.
In our experiments this year we are
arranging to determine the number of
pounds of pork per acre that can be
derived from the different crops easi
ly grown in this state. We would al
so be glad to gel In touch with farm
ers who are feeding pigs this Stimmer.
