At a meeting of the Poultry
Association, held on the 24th!
ult., there* was not as large an
attendance as was desirable, but
those who were there were
"keyed up to the top notch,"
and if this enthusiasm does not
ooze out before Dec.' 2d, the
Pickens County Poultry Show
will be one of the best ever in
the South.
Exhibitors from a distance
- are daily writing for informa
tion and for premium lists.
They state they heard a great
deal of the show last year and
that they will be competitors
this season. Those who exhib
ited from a distance last year
will be with us this year and
will try to get their friends to
exhibit. They speak in the
highest terms of praise of their
treatment and of the excellent
condition of their birds on their
return from the show. For all
of which the Poultry Associa
tion is extremely grateful.
At this meeting committees
were appointed and urged to go
to work. There will be no more
meetings held except c6mmittee
meetings until after the fair.
Those wishing to become mem
bers can make application to the
secretary or president,or through
any member.
The finance committee are at
work soliciting subscriptions to
help defray the expenses of the
show;,' the committee on pre
mium list are at work prepar
ing the copy for the printer; the
conmmittee on advertising are
working the business world to
take space in the premium list
and want all the patronage they
can get. If you want to sell
chickens. eggs, cattle, horses,
feed-stuff, farms, hardware,
drugs, dry-goods, or what not,
put it in this premium-list, and
this nediun is a mighty good
one through which to reach the
This associatlion is a wonder
f it helper in the development of
the fine-breed-of-chickens indus
try, and we know of several
pens of birds that have been re
cently )ought for no other rea
son than to exhibit at this show.
Others who visited thdshowv last
year have procured improved1
breeds for the money there is in
thenm, and the chicken industry,
am a whole, inx this colminy, is on
a boom.
What are you~ going to ex
hibit? The association has ar
ranged for the judge to be on
hand two days-one day will be
spent on pointing up the chick-*
ens and one day wvill be devoted
to talks on chickens. He will
impart lots of inftormation on
the care and raising of chickens
that is the actual and practical
experience of a m'an who has
devoted a whole lifetime to this
one industry, and which it will
take you a lifetime to learn for
yourself. This talk, while it is
intended for the members of the
* ~ association, will be free to all
who are in the. hall at the time,
amt will be worth hearing.
Ainothei' feature this year will
*be coupo.1 tkets and-the hold
e of luckyi coupon~s will be
and publishtd later.- :nis, o
itself, should insure a large at
tendance on each day.
Another innovation is th(
grading or pointing for defects
of chickens, not competing foi
prizes, and belonging to novicel
who do not know what to looli
for in a breeder or exhibitior
fowl. Any one can enter theii
chickens for this judging upor
the paying of a nominal sum,
only 10c, but they cannot entei
these chickens in the rekulai
competitive contest. They musi
keep their chickens away until
that day and 'will be allowed
space which will be set apart
for 'them at the time. If you
think you have a pretty good
pullet or cockerel, this is thE
chance to find out whether you
had better keep them for breed
erf or put them on the market
for broilers.
The management are very
much enthused over the outlook
for the fair and are meeting
with much encouragement.
Frc m present indications it will
be as much of a success as thE
agricultural fair was. Let every
member work and work hare
from now until' the time foi
holding it.. Do not wait foi th(
other fellow to do it, but wort
