HAS STORIES OF J. W.
The March issue of the West
ern Sportsman magazine " carries
the first installment of Raymond
W. Thorp's personal interview with
J. W. Anderson regarding western
frontier life in the 1870's. Mr.
Anderson is an uncle of Mrs.
Thomas, C. Harbison of Highlands.
He went west at the age of 16,
and at 87 recalls vividly the ex
citing life on the western plains
in those "day,s when he numbered
among his intimate friends such
personages as W. F. (Buffalo Bill)
Cody and Wild Bill Hickok.
The article is illustrated with
two pages of old photographs and
tells how Mr. Anderson received
the appellation of "Whiter Eye
Jack."- Mr. Anderson finally settled
in California where he owns a
beautiful home in Eagle Rock. Mrs.
Harbison visited in the California
home of her uncle a few years
ago and heard many of the stor
ies,- which she says have lost none
of their fascination or hair-raising
qualities in the magazine form.

T. J. Fagg, Macon county as
sistant tarm agent, in his report
to tred Moan, district agent, gives
the following account of the dem
onstration farm of A. M. Wilson
of Highlands :
Excellent results are already be
ing noted from new calcium meta
demonstration farms that were "ap
proved in 1939 a,nd '40. A. Al. Wil
son, calcium meta demonstration
farmer of Highlands -township, is.
doing a very fine job as a demon
stration farmer particularly- on pas
tures and meadows. Mr. Wilson is
following good rotations in his
farming program, he is keeping
his land covered at all times with
a cover crop. He uses grass and
sapling clover in rotation with his
row crops. He states that lime and
calcium meta ohosuhate are increas
ing his yield and growth of clover
and grass to a great extent. Check
plots bear out this statement In
the spring of 1940 Air. Wilson took
one acre of the poorest pasture cm
his farm and limed it at the rate
of one ton per acre.- He also ap
plied 150 pounds of calcium meta
phosphate to this acre. He then
seeded this plot of pasture to blue
grass, herds gras,s, orchard grass,
lespedeza and white dutch cloyer.
He now has a very good sod of
grass on this acre. Air. Wilson says
that before he limed and phosphat
ed this pasture he had been un
able to get a stand of any kind
of grass, and he is highly pleased
with the results he has obtained
from these two materials. He is
seedine more of his nasture this
spring following the same method
he used on the one acre last year.
Air. Wilson is not only demonstrat
ing the value of lime and phos
phate, but he has also purchased
a bure bred Durham' bull to use
on his cattle and for his (neighbors
in the community to use. He has
seeded his lawn and improved the
appearance of his grounds and is
planning this summer to finish ceil
ing some rooms in his home.
