REES LIVE STOCK ISJFARM ESSENTIAL Necessary for the Preservation of the Fertility of the Lands Few Feed ers Appreciate Difference In Qu ty Meal. , ' (From Tuesday's Daily Herald.) (C. C. Flannery, Assictant Live Std Specialist, representing the Divlsi . of Extension, Knoxville, and Co-Operating with Commercial Club Nash ville, Tenn.) , It is difficult to succeed in any bus ness which is disliked by the person engaged in it. If a feeder dislikes a certain animal on his farm, it will nev er be given a fair opportunity to de velop. If he is a breeder of hogs and sheep and he thinks more of, the one than he does of the other, the one he prefers will receive more attention and thereby make .the larger profit. Farmers in Tennessee, are inclined to give their-best thought to the .cash crop, -on the; farm, and. th,eyv then ex pect the neglected and poorly, cared for livestock to market very expensive crops at .profit. If.. live stock' do their pa"rt,they must have their part of the attention and their part of a well bal anced ration.,, You must like your livestock as well as any crop on the farm. Live stock demand daily at tention. If there ever was a time when farmers should make live stock a definite part of a well, regulated program it is now. No farmer can ex pect to achieve . permanent success unless he keens live Stock; If be keeps a good number of, live stock to care for them well means success over a period of years in marketing the products of the farm. The way we care for our live stock wil determine the Drotit that we secure in market ing our crops in this way. It is en tirely possible for one feeder to mar ket corn and hay through cattle of the same grade and bought at the. same price at a profit, while another feeder under identical conditions loses mon ey. ' In addition to feeding, a good system includes the saving of manure For It is an established fact that the farmer who doesn't care for the ma nurs cannot compete with the farm er who does, for the products of the farm must be sold on the same mar ket. Eventually the farmer who keeps no live stock will be unable to compete in the production of crops with the farmer who keeps live stock and cares for it as he should. Farmers generally expect too much of their live stock. If the feeder who feeds will do his part many losses will be prevented and the live stock business will be put on a surer basis, Here are a tow cf the i.ioKt common mistakes made by Tennessee feeder? who have heon feeding for many years: . , 1. No apparent recognition is giv en between 36 per cent and 40 per cent meal. - 2. Farmers everywhere in Middle Tennessee are feeding too much cot ton seed meal. Never feed more than 6 pounds per 1,000 pounds livweisht 3f 41 per cent meal. . !!. - We have a tendency to get the cattle on full feed to rapidly.; Cattle In 'the early feeding period should be made to consume much roughage, un Wss the feeding-. period is extreme iy 'short.. ''Your profits will be deter mined very largely by the amount of cheap feed they consume. ' .." ; "4. f-Too, much, expensive feed is be ing ted. When corn and cotton .ead meal are increased . th,e amount of ough feed used by the' cattle is imme diately reduced. We cannot feed cat tle as they are fed in the corn belt. 5. Cattle standing in mud will ii0t make the gains they should. Cattle should be well bedded. If tho winter is severe the gains made by bedding will be more noticable. ' C. Cotton seed meal should be thor oughly mixed with si'.age and not fed peparately or placed on top of the si lage. Always feed some roughness with silage and meal. " 8. No attempt is made to balance a ration by some feeders who have fed for many years. For economical beef production and a well balanced ration keep this in mind. (a) Never feed clover of soy bean hay alone. It is an unbalanced feed when fed alone. (b) Never feed timothy hay alone. Timothy hoy is an unbalanced feed and will scarcely maintain cattle dur ing a period or four months. c) Never feed oat hay alone for the same reason. But clover hay or soy bean hay with oatr timothy hay wfll make a ration fairly we?l balanced aud may b& fed with profit at present to good cattle. d) Cctton seed meal is cheap anl should be fed in small amounts to bal ance oat straw, corn stover, wheat straw, and other cheap roughage. ' STUDENT'S CLUB LIBRARY WILL BE OPEN TO PUBLIC HEREAFTER-THIS. SPLENDID IN STITUTION WILL BE OPER ATED WITHOUT CHARGE. MEMBERS MAKE ANNOUNCEMENT James Wooten Memorial Junior Lib rary Has Always Been Free to the Put lie and Will Continue to Be Small Charge in Certain Cases. (From Friday's Daily Herald.) At the last meeting of the Students' Club, the members made an Important decision, which was, to make their Circulating Library free to the public. The club has always, had a desire to do this but lacked the funds.. Now, they find that they can secure several hundred books, yearly, as a loan from tho state library and with this free source of reading matter, supplement ed by the dues of the club which have always been applied to the expens of running thelibrary, they can throw it open to the public without cnarge The only exception lo this will be the newest books and magazines' for which, a small weekly "fee will be charged. 4 ' f ,- ' ' , ; The James Wooten Memorial Lib rary,for children, a branch ClrcuJat ing Library, has been free since its inception, three years ago.wi -! The history of the Students Club Library is interesting and shows the determination and tenacity of purpose of .this public-spirited band of Women whose organization has, for many years; meant much to Columbia. In 1902, they started a public read ing room by giving a donation party A few chairs, a book-case, a table and fifty books were the contributions. A hula tater, a public reception, was hold, when a number of other books were given, and with these as a nuc leus, the circulating library was open ed. Thus for( nineteen years the Jjb rary has been in active operation. The hope and desire of the club during all these, yeajs have been to mako their collection of books the nucleus of a large public library, properly housed in a building owned by the town. In 190G, it seemed that their ambition was about to be realized for they sec ured a projnise from Mr. Andrew Car negie 'to donate to the town $10,000 for a library building provided the usual conditions such a gift imposed were complied, with.'' The club went to work with great v. zeal and after much effort were ready to meet Car neglo's conditions; viz, a building site, and an annual appropriation of S1.000 for tme city council for the maintenance of the library. They sec ured $1,400 to buy a lot and succeeded in getting( a progressive city council to pass an ordinance to provide the maintenance fund. But alas! for their hopes.' The incoming council resceml 3d the library ordinance and the Ca:- nogie Library was dead. Not daunted, however, they continued to enlarge their library and sought ever to setve the public the best they could with out any definite income. The annual memoersnip lee or one dollar and a half charged the readers, was never sufficient to cover the cost of the lib rary and the Students' Club expend cd the entire fund from their dues for its upkeep, thus making their own reading matter cost twice that of sub scrlbcrs. , During most of the, time, the members served as librarians! Several years after the organiza tion of the library, the Maury Dry Goods Company generously offered the club a home for their books in their building. - " " - "' ' ' , When the Maury Dry Goods build ng was destroyed by fire, the library was burned without a cent of insur ance, it seemed to the Club that they could never replace their hundreds ol lost volumes but they started to work again and today they have a thousand books on their shelves besides four hundred belonging to the children's library. In the collection of books in addition to fiiction there are many valuable works of reference, books on art, liter ary, art, criticism, etc. The children's library, whiclrwas, or ganized three years ago as a memorial to Jame3 Wooten, has an excellenlly selected list of books and the club is highly gratified that it is being well patronized by the young people of the commuity. , . To keep the library up to its past ctandards, the Students' Club may have to call, on the public for assist- nce, at times. The library will be .thrown open to the public Wednesday afternoon, Feb. seoend. - Miss Alford lias been engag ed as regular librarian. GOV.

In "an effort,'4' as "the annexationists understood, to agree upon the lihes for the great city the committees met. For the annexationists were appoint ed W. S. Beasley, William E. Brittdin and Robert J. Harlan, while the oppo sition was represented by Robert L. McKimiey, William B. Greenlaw and John Slrelby Coffey. The opposition insisted that the merits of the issue of annexation should be the subject of the conference. Tha annexationists declared that the issut of annexation was settled and was not a matter for the conference to discuss. That terms and conditions and lines only were to be discussed. On this issue there was a radical disagreement and the confer ence parted as far aiart as when it was convened. One side apparently understood that the conference was held for the pur pose of agreeing on the details of an nexation, while the other aide just as stoutly maintained that the confer ence was for the purpose of discussing and opening Up the whole subject of annexation, Of course with views so widely apart there could be no' agree ment. . . It is understood that at least one member of the legislative delegation has requested that no more lobbies be sent to Nashville by either side, as the delegation is in possession of all the facts and expects now to take the responsibility for a final decision. It s generally believed -that as the result of the failure of the conference Sena tor Looney. will pass theannexation bill in the senate on the third reading and send it to the house. That puts the entire responsibility up to the Maury delegation in the house. So far tbe annexation bill has never been in troduced in' the house, but that will not be necessary for In due course the senate bill will come up on third read ing In the house and must either be killed, burled in committee or passed.
