Mlaa outside the State was 5,906, or a total of 19,52 7 of horses and mules. If these be rated at an average of $150 each, the total expenditure reaches the enormous sum of nearl) $ j.OoO.OuO. An entire session was devoted tc the discussion of the eradication ol the cattle tick. Encouraging reporu were made of the work of tick eradi cation In Montgomery, Wilcox, Dal las and Elmore counties. The Asso elation passed resolutions endorsini the warfare against ticks and urglni county commissioners to pfovlde suf detent funds from the county trees uries to employ an adequate numbei of local Inspectors, in addition t< those provided by State and Federa authorities. Strees was laid on tb< fact that the greater the number o men and the shorter the time requlr <k! for complete eradication of ticki in any county, the smaller Is the tota cost of the work. V., V«|TV. IVMVW MVO •WVfta that a part of the time during whict the official* work in any county li effective chiefly in getting the farm er* interested, rather than in de stroying ticks. Thorough and ef fective work cannot be done until public sentiment thoroughly sustains the authorities. Considerable attention was given to the subject of fitting live stock for the fairs. T. U. Jones, speaking on "Fitting Hogs for Show and for Breeding." pointed out the necessity of a correct choice of the beet ani mal and care In feeding a balanced ration. He reported an Improvement in the demand for the best grade of pure-bred stock and urged breeders of this class of animals to make lib eral use of printer's ink in advertis ing. Mr. Allgood, In fitting pigs for the show ring, would begin a few weeks after birth, by weaning and separating from the sow a part of the pigs, so as to leave the dam dur ing the latter half of the suckling period oniy mree or lour oi me most promising pigs from which the show pig Is to be chosen. He makes free use of a brush In Improving tbs hog’s coat and on this brush uses a little kerosene. • Mr. T. J. Watt reported a success ful experience with pure-bred Berk shire* in spite of predictions of neighbors that be would not be re paid for the heavy Investments be made iu the best obtainable founda tion stock. He stated that he has been able to produce pork at a price as low as $2.45 per 100 pounds live wight. In this ease the food was peanuts supplemented by a little corn.

Hits begin with several promising pigs in order to get one ready to become a winner at the fairs. This is be cause even experienced breeders are liable to make mistakes in attempt ing to pick out the best young pigs. His plan of feeding is to feed for the production of lean meat through out the pig’s entire life. Thirty days before showing he begins to wash, curry, and grease show animals and to keep them in perfectly clean quar ters; indeed, his whole herd is given every month a greasing with a mix ture of 1 gallon of cottonseed oil, 2 ounces of carbolic acid and 2 ounces af salycllic acid. A week before the exhibition the dally greasing is made with equal parts of sweet oil and 1 alcohol. Mr. T. J. Blow, of Escambia County, related a favorable experl ’ ence in raising Shorthorn cattle. They are sustained throughout the > winter by grazing on a field of velvet 1 beans. These beans are grown in I altfirnato rnwa with nnm +Ka wawta ' being eight feet apart and the stalk I pnray CTDADATAD I being twice as thick In the drill as I UALMIfl guAnnlUnl 1 usual.
