THE S.NYDER SIGNAL. S.VYDER. TVXAM
THE SNY1ER glONAL. ENTPER. TEXAS, FRIDAY, DEO II, mt. . I II II Oron James IXh1. On Thursday, December 15, 121, following a long and trying r.lness, our neighbor and Brother, Ores C. James of Fluvanna, auccumbed to tuberculosis. The patient had been nick about a year; during which lime he bore his affliction with great pa tience and fortitude while, at the i.ame time, h was making a Eard tipbt against a aupc-rlor force of the Ored diaae. Brother James waa. 23 years old l.-.st Aupust, and had been married to Miss CcOon .Dorn twenty-one months. Th devoted young' wife f.tood faithfully and lovingly by her nfflicted husband to the end; while the two own brothers, Messrs. Cyrus and Uyrd James and their mother, "Mrs. Pat Weems, bautlfully eiropli fied the true sp.rlt of family devo tlon through all those long months of trying affliction. It Is also proper to note that many relative and friends truly manifested their sym pathy by both words and deedsj Brother James made profession of faith In Christ more than nine years ago, and united with the Presbyterian Church of Fluvanna; where his church relation continued to the day of the soul's translation to the para dice of Heaven where he meets the father whom he had never seen, and where he awaits the eoming of wlfs and bother and brothers and sitters, with alt the redeemed In Christ Jesus. The funeral service was held on Friday In the Presbyterian church, where some 300 people assembled to pay their tribute of respect. The ser vice was conducted Jointly by two Methodist ministers, Rev. Terrell and Weems, and He writer. Again we are reminded of the all Important matter of being ready for the inevitable, whether that be soon or late; also, of tho most consoling of all truths, that it Is well, eternally well with those who "prepare tft mwt thy God." In the last hour Brother James at up and serenely toW those present that the end had come, all is well goodbye. Jas. II. Tate. At tho rtainview roultry Show. Quite a number of Scurry county people attended tbe Plalnview poul try show including JoeMerrltt, hU twoaons, J. J. Koonsman, W. R. Bell, Chas. Olen and E. J. Anderson. While there three parties purchased about 15 pens of chickens for themse!vcs and for various business men of Sny der to be on hand at the Snyder ahow either for exhibition or for sale as breeding Mock. The Plalnview show waa on ,h biggest to bo held in the country this season and had birds from all over the United States. The Plainview country however, had it not been for the immense amount of poultry raised would now be in ex tremely hard shape ai their staple crop of wheat was practically a fail ure. Their poultry rotnrns have amounted to more than $1,500,000 In Hale county tnls year4 While there Mr. Anderson was a guest of Kiwanis Club Luncheon and addressed them on the subject of extension work be ing carried out in this county. Strange as it may seem they have never been organised up to the pres ent and informed him that they were going to adopt the Scurry county pro; gram as oumr.ea 10 ineir mioii committee.

Farmers Mercantile Company Closed Monday, Dec. 26 From Dr. C. E. Walker. Dear Mr. Editor: . Much is being said iu regard to Three Cows, Four Sows, and a hund- dred hens on every farm in Scurry county. This is a good move by our Chamber of Commerce in tbe right di rectlon and we should feel proud of and encourage them, but let us aect the cows very carefully, there are many who do not pay for the feed they eat and who would care to milk a cow. six hundred times a year for no pay what ever. Shall we go on with our eyes clos ed with cross breds and scrubs or shall we breed up instead of down, according to United States Govern ment figures the average milk cow gives 362T pounds of milk and 160 pounds of butter per year, while we have the world record cow for milk and butter but the average is far be low. Holland, Switzerland and Den mark, on account of ao many poor animals on our farms. It does not take a large sum of money to buy a bull from a register of merit cow, making as much as 9000 pounds of milk and 400 to 600 pounds of but ter per year and the off springs from scrub' cows with first calves would be a better cow than her dam. would rather have a heifer out of a poor cow in this country and from a poor bred and registered sire than have a heifer out of the beet cow and a Scrub sire. A good sire is half the herd, a scrub sire is all ot it. Why go ahead year after year rals ing anima that lose you money. Why not raise the kind that will keep you instead of you keeping them. I hare been out orer moBt of this country and if there is a registered Jersey sire here I never heard 4 him. We have a few registered Holsteins that are making moneq, why not two or moro farmers go in together and buy a good sire, the cost would be small and results surprising. Life is too short to be( wasting time ctohi breeding and recrosslng and expect ing to get a mllfc cow. Ycm wir never get any where. It is sot done that way. Pick out the bred most suited to your needs and stick to It, oe tbe beet sires to be had and feed them, we find 60 per cent of all a cow cats 13 required to sustain her body and ony after than amount is provided can there be any return to the feeder. This being true ie should have a hearty eater and see that she ret it, while if they have not the ability to produce milk they : are a failure as a Dairy cow, and bhould be turned over to the butcher nnd repVace her with a more desirable ', cow. If we will bred the right type of cows, it would only be a short time until when jou have a surplus you will not hav to hunt a buyer, the buyer will hunt you and at a good price. Surely the time is full ripe for mo to wake no and look around at others who try wd are making money, why can't we, I am for better sires and a pure bred live Stock Association of Scurry County. I will glad'y castrat any scrub or trade bull free of charge if you will replace him with a registered bull. T.T. C. B. Walker, Snyder; Texas Dorn, t0 W.. W. Wrritt and wife.
