The following article concerning co
operative creameries in Tennessee tf
prepared by W. T. Magruder. Jr.,
State Dairy Commissioner, and ahowi
the progress being made in the State in
that direction, and evidences the growth
of the cooperative movement.
The farmers of Tennessee are grad
n.n. ..akeninor to the fact that co-op
eration pays among farmers just as it
does among business men in the cities.
More farm products are being sold eo
operatively now than ever before, and
as farmers learn of the advantages of
buying and selling cooperatively, more
enterprises of that kind will be .started.
The cooperative creameries of this
t.ta. have 'done more than anything
else to show the farmers that coopera
tion pays. Through the co-operative
creameries thousands of farmers are
selling their cream and many are buy
ing in the same way, what feeds and
other supplies they need,
That these creameries have been very
successful is indicated by the number
of new ones that have been started and
the quantity of. butter that they turn
out. Wherever a ct6perative creamery
has been stsrted the dairy industry
takes on new life, and many more fann
er. trt to mir.'M cows because they
,ko Hair .i p Davs and that co-
tl ..nncr.tiii rrpameries will re
moo thp rream of any farmer who has
cream of good quality to sell, and every
body receives the same price for tne
cream sold in any month, no matter
who they are or where they live or in
what quality they bring it to the rream
Try. No cream of bad quality is taken
by any creamery, because the managers
of these creameries know that it la im
oossible to turn out butter of good
qualnity from cream of bad quslity,

Tennessee, and the amount of butter

Lait evening I was talking
With a Doctor spry and gav;
Who told me of a vision be had
I think twas Xmas day,
While snoozing in his cbatr at home
The vision came to view,
For be saw an Angel enter.
Dretaed in garraenta white and new.
Said the Angel "I'm from Heaven. "
The Lord just sent me down
To bring you up io giory,
And put on you your golden crown,
You have been a friend to everyone
And worked bard night and day.
You have doctored many toius nds
Atd from many received no pay.
C Anwna nn fin to trior?
For you have labored hard,
inrf ik o.mA Lord is preDaring
Y ur eternal and just reward."
Then the Angel and tne uocior
Stmed up towards Glory's gate '
Rf when naiainsr close to Hdea
Tne Angel murmured "wair."
I have a Dlacetoshow you:
It'a the hottest, place In hell, f
Where tne patients woo wuuiuu i

And looking up the Doctor ssw

And he longed for nothing more.
with fan in hund he watched them
As tney stzz'ed and burned.
For his ryes would rest on debtors
Whichever wsy he turned
Said the Angel, "come on Doctor
There's tho pearly gate to sec,
But the iwctor oniy m&rraureu

which indicstes no possibilities ot soc
cuessful reformation and rehabilitation
r the coctrol methods recommended
t these experienced farmers. About
three-auarters of them ssy that it does
not pay to raise runt, while the balan:
maintain that the "Tom Thumbs" of

cessfully only when well bred and when
plenty of cheap feed is available and
dependable markets are readily accessible.
The value and Importance of the dai
ry cow as a soil builder can hardly be
over estimated and the proper saving
and usinc of the manure is the princi
pal factor which determines whether
or not the dairy farm grows r'u-r or

Bdvs' Corn Clubs were organized in
37 Tennessee counties in 1921. The
total number of community corn clubs
was 186 and the total enrollment of
boys was 2,154. This was an average
of 68 members to the county and al
most 12 to each community club. It
was required that 6 bos be enrolled
before a countv or community club was
The task before each club member
waa to follow the instructions of his
county agent in the growing of an acre
of corn. Tbey were given instructions
regarding tho type of soil to use, meth
ods of preparing, fertilizing, plant
ing and cultivating. They wtTd also
instructed as to the variety of corn
m st suited to various types of soil :id
A laree cercentaae of the 2,151 boyi
succtsiifully grew their acres of corn
and the county agent succeeded in col
lecting 701 complete report booklets
showing detai'a of the work and the re
sults obtained. A compilation of theee
reports furnishes interesting food for
thought to every person interested in
the agricultuial development of len
The 701 boys who submitted complete
repor's grew 39,175 bushels of corn or
an average of 56 bushels per acre, Tc
grow this corn it cost $11,984 ur an av
e raize of 30 cents a bushel.
The average yield per acre of all
farmers as reported by the Government
was 26J .bushels. While this yield is
slightly above.the ten years average, the
corn club.boys have produced more than
twice the average fur the entire state.
It is interesting to ikndw that it cost
tfce boys an average of $16 80 to grow
each acre of corn. The average'market
price of corn in Tennesaee;on November
1, was 50 cents per bushel. At this
price the 66luthels would brirg $33 04
leaving a net profit of $16.24 per acre.
But the corn fed to .livestock is worth
more than the price it will bring on the
market io the fall of the year. Many
of these boys who are in the pig club
are finding that corn fed to bogs is
worth 75 cents a bushel and that ia the
value Dlaced on their crop, At 75 cents
per bushel the 56 buxhela would be
worth $42 00 leaving a net profit or
25.20 per acre,

the corn club oovs of Tennessee have

Pays to Fatten Poultry
Manv Tennessee farmers are learning
that it cava to finish hoes and cattle.
Heavy feeding and close confinement for
two or three weeks adds finish weight,
thereby increasing the price per pound
and the number of i pounds. The poul
try specialist, Division of Extension,
baa found an excellent fattening ration
to consist of 2 psrts finely ground corn
meal and 2 parts wheat shorts, moisten
ed with butter milk or sour milk to a
mortar-like consistency. All the hire's
will eat if fed three times daily, It ia
not uncommon for a good, husky bird
weighing 1J to 2 pounds to add three
quarters of a pound, or 35 percent of
iuorginial,weight,in two three or weeks.
I the birds are thrifty, 34 pounds of
this feed will add a pound of weight..
the maximum gain can usually be ob
tained in 15 Ito 20 davs The bird
should be marketed as soon a their ap
petite begins to wane, If the mixture
is properly saturated with buttermilk
or sour milk, no water need be given.
With . prestnt feed prices, fattening
young birds by intensive feeding should
te profitable. Heretofore, the por
duce men have been finishing tht.ni
after obtaining them from farmers.
There ia no reason why this cannot be
done by the producer instead of the
