FARM ADVICE BY
THE COUNTY AGENT
Plow under all cotton stalks just
as soon as you get through picking.
By doing so you break up winter ho
tels for the boll weevil and thereby
greatly add to, your chance for mak
ing a cotton crop next year. A very
effective method if turning under
cotton stalks with a two-horse plow
is the use of a good heavy chain to
bend the stalks over ahead of the
plow. Hook one end, of the chain to
the double tree and let it come back
to the plow point and hook to the
other end of the double tree, mak
ing the letter U.
All those who made mounds round
their fruit trees this summe- should
remove them now. After you have
removed mounds take your knife and
scrape around the trunk of the tree
where the mound was, thus scraping
off all eggs and killing young lorers.
Don't forget about getting your
wheat seed, as good wheat seed may
t scarce, as practically every farm
er is expecting to plant some wheat.
Your county agent bought some good
wheat seed for the farmers this
week and will take pleasure in help
ing you to get some.
If you are counting on getting
something out ->f .our hickns have
plenty of green crop.for them to eat
this fall and winter. Plenty of rape,
alfalfa, wheat, oats, rye and clover
for your chickens to eat will malke
them grow and lay "to -beat the
band." Improve your chickens by
carrying out the following methods:
1. The producer and non-produ
cer are easily' distinguished by a
areful. study of the individual birds.
2. Culling should take place from
June to October, inclusive.
3. The producer is active, heal
and should be kept.
- 5. Vigor and condition are indi
cations of the heavy producer, which
sh'ould have a 'fine head, prominent,
full, round eye; lean face; closely fit
ted wattles and earlobes and large
6. The heavy producer has a
large, open, and moist vent, free
from yellow pigment. The slacker
hen has a small, dry, puckered up
vent, showing considerable -yellow
7. The abdominal region of a
heavy orAucer will show great depth

spread, keel straight and extended
well to the rear.
8. The abdominal region of a
poor producer will show a shallow
