J. E. GLADNEY Manager, WEST POINT, MISS. r' Live Stock hSotes. The Live Stock World says: Georgia bought $5,000,01)0 worth of meat from other states last vear and taised but $7,580,000 vorth of cattle and hogs for -laughter. No wonder some people down there are in the poor white trash category. Uriah Peak, of Silver Springs, Tenn., says in Home and Farm: I'alking about large Jack colt3, here-are the facts about my Jack. He was three years old in May last, is full 16J4 hands high, 87 inches from crown of his head to the root of his tail, 44 inches from tip of ear to tip of lips, 35 inches from tip to tip of ear, b8^ inches ,irth, 72 inches flank, 22 inches forearm, around knee* 15 inches, stifle 27 inches, jaw, 38J4 inches, nose at corner of mouth 22 inches. Secretary Wilson annouced re cently that from the reports that are constantly being received at his departmedt he could foresee no decrease in the demand for good horses: that he regarded the automobile as no more ofa menace to the horse industry than the bicycle had proven, and that he was inclined to regard re ports to the contrary as evidence of an effort on the part of certain unscrupulous horse speculators to produce a rush of stock to the market with a view to “bearing” the prices. An exchange says: “Kill your dog and buy a pig with the dollar you save on dog tax. The scraps you feed the dog would make the pig weigh 300 pounds, and then you could sell it and give your wife the money.” Yes, kill your dear faithful, mindful, trustful old dog and buy a pig. But when you come home after a hard days toil and expect that same pig to meet you two blocks away with a joyous little cry of welcome at every jump, yonare disappointed. Sometimes when you feel unusu ally “blue” and it seems as if the whole world wes “knocking” against you, don’t expect it to nestle up to your side and, laying its head in your lap, wag its tail in unalloyed sympathy. Don’t expect it to forsake its meal of “scraps” just for the privilege of uoiug v wu I will pan ivu uu u ivutij drive or walk. Don’t expect it to do any of these “little things.” There’s a vast difference between your most constant friend and a pig.—Ex. Hog Raising in Texas. Texas has never figured very extensively in the aggregate production of either corn or hogs, l'he largest portion of the agri cultural area of this state has oetn dovoted to cotton, wheat and oats, with corn a third or fourth place. For this reason, it is claimed by many stockmen that bogs will not be raised in great numbers until the acreage of corn is increased to an extent that will justify it. Texas has a wonderful future as a hog pro ducing state, but the farmers must get away from the idea that corn is the only desirable feed, tirow rape, alfalfa, soy beans, Kaffir corn, milo maize and ither crops to feed with corn. Recent meetings of hogmen nave been the means of working a revolution in feeding methods m the corn belt. Prominent feeders have told of their ex perience in feeding a balanced ration. One feeder, a well known man In Indiana, stated that he had never been able to make a gain of more than ten pounds for each bushel of corn fed when it was used exclusively as a fatten ing ration, but by feeding rape ind soy beans in connection with the corn bad frequently made a gain of sixteen pounds with the bushel of corn. He paid 55 cts. a bushel for corn, and the rape and soy beans to balance the corn cost about 15 cents. Any intelligent farmer will readily observe that the profit is in the balanced ration. Texas farmers who have been discouraging the production of hogs have had their eyes opened recently by the success of stock men in counties where no corn is grown at all* There is a num her of counties in the Staked Plains region of Texas, such counties as Howard, Scurry, (larza, Cior deii, Mitchel and Damson, that are producing hogs of the finest quality. The business is vet an experimental stage but is grow ing rapidly. In the semi-arid section the principal crops grown are Kaffir corn, sorghum, alfalfa and milo ma'ze, and they pro duce abundantly without irriga tion. These feeds will make hog raising in that section possible as well as profitable. The time is past when corn is the only cereal that will make good hogs —Exchange. One Man’s Plan. Bono, Johnson County, Texas. I was raised on a farm, have been Harming thirty-five years, rented ten years, and am satis fied with my lot. I enjoy walk ing over my farm to see where I can make some improvement or repairs, slop a wash, cut a ditch, ♦ oolz i-o/i iit I ,-n m n l/o /> rru fa olon — ~r *• ” " -- o-’ r for another crop; come through the pasture, look at the cows, and to the hog lot, give the pigs some charcoal, salt and ashes; then to the henhouse, stop a crack on the north side, and as Bill Arp says, “Speak a word of encouragement to mother.” Tell her the cows are doing well, the pigs are fat and the prospects for another crop are good. I have just read a letter from Hico by D. Eskin. It is good. Yes, Brother Eskid, co-operation is not the plan. Let me suggest one. industry, economy and pa tience will lead the farmers to in dependence. When l was a boy we did not buv lamps, .oil or matches. We used flint and steel and tallow candles, I was 12 years old when my mother bought her first cook stove; had no organ, machine or Duggy. We paid cash for what we bought, thought times were good, did not grumble about hard times. How is it now? Do people buy on time buggies, organs, machines and many other things they could do without and pay nearly double their value? We all like to have such things and should have them when we have the ca3h to spare, but I had rather ride a pum uuic (tuu illicit 10 lue croaking of the frogs than to be foraver in debt and being dunned. The industrious young man who does not buy luxuries on time will be able to have them before many years. If be buys them on time while young he may do without them when old. K. L, Hamilton. ^ -m The other day I overheard a merchant and a farmer talkin'.* over the advantages and disad vanta'gesof their respective occu pations. The young firmer saio* that while he had done-“well enough” in the several years since he began farming.' he had lost quite a lot of stuff, some hogs and other stock, and there always seemed to >be something to cut dov\n the profft. Then spoke the merchant on this wise: Young man, you say you have been do ing well enough since you began for yourself some years ago. Now in view of my own experi encc as a farmer and a merchant, I will tell you what I would do I would stick to the farm and keep right on doing well enough for several years more. You are leading an independent life. It some fellow comes around and goes to ripping you up the back, you can kick bim off the place and go on with your work in your own way and its nobody’s busi ness but your own. With me it is entirely different, If a man with a real or imaginary griev ance comes in and talks to me, I’ve just got to smile and take it and keep my mouth shut or the chances are I will lose his trade. You see lam dependant, and my advice would be to stick to farm ing.—Ex. HARDY *6tockV To obtain new cus tomers we will send* the projier time this fall lbeau ul Flowering Tree and I Russian .
