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
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.

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;

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
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
I will glad'y castrat any scrub or
trade bull free of charge if you will
replace him with a registered bull.
