Delightful Barbecue and Re
union of the Winn Family
As the beautiful sun rose in the
eastern sky on the morning of Au
gust 7, the wind (Winn) began to
stir in every direction to see who
should be the first one to get to
their father's home, Mr. W. B.
Winn, for the family re-union.
At seven o'clock they began to
come one after another until finally
they all reached home once more to
talk of their childhood days.
They gathered in the antique oak
grove around the springs where the
carcasses were being prepared, and
talked about the many pleasant
hours they had spent around the
springs. You could hear the mer
ry and the chattering of the grand
children's voices mingled in with
But to think, when we began to
look around and count them, they
had increased from twelve to thirty.
It was a great pleasure to the
father and mother to have their
children and grand children gather
around them. Mr. and Mrs. Winn
have ten living children, eight
boys and two girls, six daughters
in-law, four grand daughters and
eight grand sons. So you may
imagine what a pleasant day they
spent, especially when they gathered
under the stately oaks with their
branches extending over the long)
table laden with an abundance of
delightful food spread by the'
springs of beautiful clear water.
At 1 o'clock dinner was announ
ced and barbecued hash, meats, iced
tea, lemonade, etc., were served and
The guests were Mr. and Mrs. J.
O. Seigler, Messrs. Calhoun Seigler,
Earl Fuller, Ed Reynolds and Bob
As night drew near they all de
parted for their homes with bright
and happy faces looking forward
for the next annual f.tmily rc-union.
Who Owns The Birds.
The New York Tribune of May
26 has an editorial on the protec
tion of our birds that is so clearly
and strongly put that it shouid have
the widest possible reading. We
give it in part:
"Our lawmakers have been care
fully trained to believe that the
men who kill are the sole dictators
of the fate of the game birdu and
many others. Nine Americans out
of every ten to-day have in their
heads a well"defined state of mind
which passively concedes that the
sportsmen, gunners and 'game hogs'
actually own all the game birds and
may dictate their fate.
"But every tenth man has learned
differently, and the day of, reckon
ing has arrived. Ninety-five per
cent of the birds, game and not
ganie, belong to the people Who
don'k shoot and never kill. When
ever they decide that there should
be no bird shooting anywhere iii
the United States for five years that
decision will prevail. The real
sportsmen wili concur; the gunners
will object. The game birds do not
belong to the gunners any more
than to the barbers or the station
ary engineers. The question of what
the gunners will agree to in the line
of real conservation is now a mat
ter of acedemic interest only.
"Through their greed and selfish
ness in shooting up to the "bag lim
it' ?nd beyond the heedless sports
men, the gunners and 'game hogs'
of this land have brought our once
bountiful supply of legitimate game
to an alarmingly low point. They
have shown us that the way to
bring back the birds is to stop kill
ing them. If this spells 'prohibi
tion,' as some of the killers already
declare then prohibition let it be,
for our bird fauna must and shall
be saved."-Our Dumb Animals.
Tura Under Legume Crop?.
It is the business of the farmer
to take out of his soil in cYops
every pound of nitrogen, phosphor
us and p< taesium be can get oat of
it, bat it ie equally as mach or more
nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium
rn some cheaper form.
If the supply of any plant food
is abondant and little of it is re
moved from ? the land, . ae -may be
true of potassium when nothing
but livestock or lint cotton is sold
from the farm, he may draw on the
reserve supply in the soil fora
time, but generally the only safe
plan is to put back as much of each
plant food as is removed by the
crops, and not returned in stable
manure. In the case of nitrogen,
much more must be put back than
the crops remove from the soil, for
ibis plant food is largely leached
out by rain water that drains from
To sell nitrogen in milk, beef,
pork or in grains at a high price,
and gather it from the air with le
gumes for little or no cost, when
the feeding value of these legumes
is considered, is a profitable busi
ness and should be followed by the
farmer to the utmost limit. If he
does this by growing two crops a.
year, one of whioh is a legume to
be plowed under or fed and the
manure returned to the land, he can
buy phosphorus in the form of
ground phosphate rock at a very
small part of what be gets for it in
the products sold, but if he buys ni
trogen at 20 cent* a pound, then he
must also buy phosphorus in the
form of acid phosphate at a cost of
four or rive times what it would
cost him in ground phosphate rock.
From this it is seen that the farmer
who grows legumes and at least
plows some of them under, not only
gets his nitrogen for a small part
of what it costs when bough: in
commercial form, but he also saves
three-fourths of the cost foVthe
phosphorus needed which must be
brought in all kinds of farming to
maintain the supply in the soil.
A great roany seem to fail to
realize that the aim of the farmer
should be to take the largest quan
tities of plant foods possible from
the soil, in crops, and a still greater
number entirely fail to appreciate
the fact that these plant foode
taken from the soil must be replac
ed. When they are bought at the
prices charged for commercial ni
trogen and for phosphorus in acid
phosphate the farmer is either
"swapping dollars" or robbing his
land. It is better to buy these plant
foods in commercial fertilizers than
not put anything back into the
soil; but if the greatest profit is to
be obtained, he must gather his ni
trogen from the air with legumes
and put his land in condition so
that he can use the cheapest form
of phosphorus by plowing these le
gumes under or feeding them and
returning the stable manure.-Tait
