THE PENSACOLA JOURNAL WEDNESDAY MORNING, JULY 30, Big Centennial Plan3 Taking Concrete Form (Contlrfued from Page One.) elected by both the legislature of 1915 and 1917, had done everything she logically could to put It on. Only the worla war stopped it formerly and nothing: could stop it now, it was said. A site for the exposition must be given, but no steps have yet been taken to guarantee this. One thousand acres is necessary. The bugbear of housing was not thought to be formidable by the com mittee. Pensacola has really more room than other cities contending for the honor, it was said, as every avail able hotel in Florida is now taxed to the limit of its capacity. - The fact that expositions benefit any-community which willing to pay the price not so much in local money expended, but in aid solicited fromtbe state and federal government, was ox plained when the following , record from other celebrations was given: In 1893. the World's Columbian Ex position was held In Chicago, this being the first really great exposition staged in America. The federal government appropriated $5,840,392.64 for this expo sition, the state of Illinois $800,000 and the city of Chicago, $5,000,000. Stock in the amount of $3,000,00 was also issued while miscellaneous contributions amounted to $3,000,000. . . . There were a total of 21,480.141 peo- pie paid admissions to the Columbian exposition, the grand total attendance being 27,539.041. The Cotton States and Industrial Ex position, which was held In Atlanta in 1895, cost $2,000,000. The federal gov lenmsnt appropriated $200,000, the state of Georgia $17,500; city of At lanta $75,000, and the county of Fulton $75,000 for this exposition.

Statistics of over 10,000,000 wage earners show that during 1918 the mor tality' wan higher by more than SO per cent than prevailed In 1917., This was due to the Influenza, epidemic. And yet. the death rate for 1918 be fore September 1 was lower than for the corresponding period of 1917. Be--ginning with October (flu epidemic got under full swing in. . September) the death rate began to rise above the figures of 1917. In October the mor-. talityate was 30.42 per 1,000 as com pared" with 10.94 in October, 1917. an excess of 87 per cent. The November death rate, 49.48 per 1,000, was the highest of any month of the year. That was the peak month of the flu-pneumonia epidemic. In November, 1917. the death rate was only 13.56 per 1, 000. Peak of Epidemic Passed in Novem ' ber. The death rate among these workers declined . in December, being 23.8 per 1,000. But that is large when com pared with the death rate for Decem ber. 1917. when it was 12.03 per L000.

National Crop Improvement Service. 1 At two or three weeks of age the pigs will begin-to manifest anr Inter est in the food of the sow. At this time unwearied pigs should have a low et trough barred to keep away the bigger pigs, and they should be en couraged to go to It to satisfy. their hunger. The use therein of sweet milk and a little mill feed or pig meal will soon Induce them to eat a great deal In this way, thus supplementing the milk of the sow and hastening their sturdy growth. - ' Weaning at four weeks of age is usu ally not of good practice; if not ac tually cruel, the change Is too sudden for best results. Two litters a year may be had If the pigs, are encouraged to eat. while still nursing, and If they are not weaned until six or eight weeks of age. This probably Is the better practice. When pigs are left with the sow for periods as long as ten to twelve weeks she will wean them hersedf, but It Is time wasted, for two litters are Im possible. When weaning takes place the sow should be returned to the pigs two or three times so that the udders may be milked out. MATURE HOGS QUICKLY. The hog which weighs, from 200 to) 290 pounds Ic the hog which the pack er wants and is the cheapest and best hog the farmer can raise. According to Doctor Henry, the amount of grain required per hundred pounds of gala la as follows Weight of hogs. . ; For 100 lbs. gain. 100 to M0 lbs. 437 lbs. of feed 160 to 200 lbs.. 482 lbs. of feed 200 to 260 lbs......... ..........498 lbs. of feed 259 to 900 lbs. 511 lbs. of feed 800 to 350 lbs 638 lbs. of feed From the farmers' standpoint there is greater profit in putting hogs on the market at 200 to 200 pounds. - In marketing hogs young, the risk of loss from disease is also, lessened. He Is therefore justified In feeding the Tery best feeds obtainable while the hog is capable of making his greatest gains. ; BEGIN TO RAISE 1.HOG8. j jPi G;ad Yoe Alive - ; i ' ;.; ifS- 1 Ol I Ha When you "bottom's up" with a bottle of this joy juice, you have a mighty sigh of satisf cation. ; For the zestful lime flavor cheers up your heart and makes you feel like a live one.

It will be more economical In the end to buy a purebred and raise good pigs. Tou can always sell registered stock because the demand is greater than the supply. As a rule purebred sows or srilts are better feeders and will respond to good care better than scrubs. All swine should be purebred, but not necessarily registered, although registering adds to their sale value. With a bred gilt, or one to be bred to farrow early in the spring. It need not take one long to raise enough hogs for the farm meat supply. We will not miss our German frank furters if every farm home will learn how to cure meat and to make pork sausage and specialties. Every produc er or pork should cure his own hams and sides at least . enoueh to meet the demands of his own household and his own hired labor. Home-cured hams and bacon- are always In demand among your neighbors, provided of course that you do a good Job. You cannot expect to get a good price for Inferior work.
