? For The County
Next Monday will be a busy day in
Brevard, with induction into office of

large number of people will be in

Judge Walter K. Moore is sched
uled to hold this term of court, but
as he is very ill another judge will
be sent here m his stead. It was not
known Wednesday night who will
come, but many believed that Judge
H. H. Koyle Sink, now holding court
in Haywood, will be sent to Brevard
for this session. This is not official
however, as no one would so state ex
cept in the nature of a surmise.
In the matter of the installation of
the new officers, but few changes will
be made in the personnel. The new
board of county commissioners will
have only three members as against
the five members heretofore constitu
ting the beard. Of these three, two
were re-elected, these being W. B.
Henderson and L. V. Sigman. W. L.

O. L. Erwin, former chairman of
the board, was elected as county
treasurer, and will succeed Mrs. Jus
tice in that office. ,-a !

county surveyor, while Dr. J. B.
Lynch will go in as county coroner.

familiar routine to the new officer.
The clerk of the court, Otto Alex
ander, was re-elected two yeas agoj
for a four-year term, and his office is |
not affected by the recent election,
nor will it be involved in the program

iPIG CLUB BOYS ARE~
1 TESTING NEW FEED
The Pig Club boys have just re- J
ceived 1000-pound co-operative ship- 1
ment of supplemental hog feed man-i
ufactured in Iowa and endorsed by
I the Iowa State College. This feed is
to be used by the boys in connection
with home-grown grains, and is be
lieved to be one of the most econom
ical feeds obtainable. One part of the
| concentrated feed is used to twelve
parts of the grain ration and eon-j
[tains a well balanced formula con
i sisting of protein, vitamines, Iodine ?
The boys are very enthusiastic in!
their pig club work and are making
a careful study of feeds, choosing J
those that will enable them to raise j
the animals at such low cost that!
they will realize some profit from !
even with a low market when they ]
are ready to be sold. It was after i
considerable study along this line!
^hat this particular feed, known asj
Iowa Big Ten was selected and j
through quantity building they were!
able to get it at a very reasonable!
figure. Twenty boys are engaged in
the project, under the supervision of
Prof. Glazener, vocational agricul
ture instructor in the Brevard High
An interesting fact about this new
feed it that every members of the
concern manufacturing it is a prac
tical farmer and has made a careful
study of the subject of feeds. Another
point mentioned is the fact that it is
endorsed by the Iowa State college
land Iowa is well known for the high
| type hogs raised there.

I to the work by caring for the indi-!
Ividual graves in which they are in-;

tlie chicken and legg business, the)
B. ar.d B. Feed and Seed company*
takes the figures on a flock of 100;
hens and show where the flock will I
earn over $25 per month. j
One hundred hens, Mr. Brittain
says, will lay an average of 1,500
eggs per month, or 15 egg.? per hen
each month. The B. and B. is r.ow
paying 30 cents per dozen for eggs,
which would amount to $37.50 for the
1,500 eggs. Figuring corn at 58 cents
a bushel, Mr. Brittain says that $3
worth of corn plus $6 worth of lay
ing mash will feed the flock for a
month, leaving a net earning of
$28.50 from the Sock of 100 hens.

Why does a wan whose wealth al
