N spite of the statements of popru
lar historians roasted turkey with
giblet gravy and with cranberry
or apple sauce was a very popu
lar Sunday and holiday dish In many
places many years before turkey be
came standardized as the central dish
of the Thanksgiving day dinner in
Plymouth colony and among the Puri
tans and their descendants settled
along Boston bay and the north shore
The story that turkey was the main
stay of the Thanksgiving 'ay dinner
of the early colonists of Netv England
seems to have come from the pen of a
visiting Englishman at Plymouth, who
described his travels in a book publish
ed in London just after the great tire.
le also told the absurd story of the
starving condition of the pilgrims and
of their being reduced at one time to
a dinner of three gralis of corn. The
fact was that none of the early or late
colonists could have starved at Plym
outh or elsewhere along the north or
the south shore, as the sea teemed
with fish and shellfish and the woods
were alive with game. As late as thir
ty years ago Brant Rock and Marsh.
field, near Plymouth. Mass., were re
sorted to by hundreds of hunters of
wild birds, and to this hour deer and
wild bird shooting is good in Plymouth
What the pilgrims and the Puritans
craved in the early years of their
settlements were roast beef and nut
ton, pork, wheaten, oaten and barley
bread, venison pasties made from the
red deer stock, native to England;
jams and jellies from English fruits
preserved with brown sugar from the
orient and English inead, ales and Iol
land spirits. Most of them disliked
Indian corn in all forms of products
for human consumption, and they (hIs
liked oysters, clams, lobsters, mussels,
scallops, turkeys and native venison.
It was only when marriages of the
early English settlers and their de
scendants In New England with In'
dians brought about many persons of
mixed blood that the English preju
dices against certain native American
food products passed away. To this
day English travelers find some of our
foods which we consider delicious
strange to their palates. Matthew Ar
nold, traveling in America, was asked
to taste griddlecakes. "try them, my
dear," he said to his wife; "they're
not nearly so nasty as they lookl "
As lately as fifty years ago many
families in New r England of undoubted
descent from the pilgrims and Puri
tans regarded roasted or baked turkey
as an Indian dish and would have
none of it at any time, preferring for
Thanksgiving day dtmer roast beef, a
saddle of mutton, pork spareribs, roast
goose with apple sauce or farm raised
ducks with barberry sauce. The wild
turkey was saved from extinction In
New England only because the farm
era noticed that those birds and the
partridges served well in ridding the
farm lands of Insects and weeds.

WHEAT IS GOOD CROP
Farm Demonstration Agent Thinks
Muoh WIU Be Planted in County
Orangeburg, Nov. 14.-Wheat grow
ing in this section has proved to the
farmers of Orangeburg county that
there is a considerable saving to be
realized through its cultivation and
that it can be grown to great advan
tage throughout this section.
L. S. Wolfe, farm demonstration
agent, has been asked if there would
be as much wheat planted in Orange
burg county this fall as there was
last year, when it was taken up more
as an experiment than for any other
purpose. Mr. Wolfe said that he ex
pected to see fully as much wheat
sown this year as there was last year,
though no one farmer would put in
a very great quantity of wheat, but
that the combined acreage through
out the entire county will be fully
equal to that of last year, if not larg
er. Mr. Wolfe pointed out the advan
tages of a farmer making his flour
at home, and said that this was the
main objectof the farm demonstration
work, to teach and show the farmers
how to make those crops at home
which would enable hii to live with
out buying his food supplies and oth
Considerable attention will be paid
to the planting of rice in this county,
the experiment of wheat having
proved so successful, that another
step is to be taken whereby it is
hoped to induce the farmers to pro
duce their own rice at home, which
will result in another great saving.
In speaking of the plan to have the
ofilce of the secretary of the Cham
ber of Commerce and Agriculture the
headquarters for the farm demonistra
tion agents, Mr. Wolfe said that it
was working satisfactorily.
lie pointed out that the fariers
are glad to know that there is a dell

can consult with the agents. A large
number of farmers have called upon
the demonstration agents since they
have had their headquarters at the
