PROFIT FROM SWINE
One of Most Lucrative Lines of
Industry in South.
Best Way Is to Graze Hogs on Pas
tures Especially Prepared for Them
Two Common Methods Are
Quite Objectionable. ,
Hog raising is one or the most
profitable lines , of animal husbandry
In the south if wisely managed, and
one of the most unprofitable if con
ducted in the ordinary way, that is, if
the hogs are raised without care and
fed without knowledge or Judgment,
said the late S. A. Knapp. Two meth
ods of hog raising are common in tne
southern states, both equally objec
tionable: 1. When managed by the first meth.
dd the hogs are allowed free range
in the woods and swamps, fenced or
unfenced, subsist on grass, roots,
acorns and grubs, breed indiscrlmi
nately and the survivors are slaught
ered at two or three years of age,
weighing net from 50 to 125 pounds.
Such animals furnish inferior hams
and shoulders, provide scarcely any
lard, and do not make a compensating
return for the use of the land. The
owners are liable to heavy losses
from diseases, storms and other
causes, and the product does not meet
FAULTY DRAFT HORSES' FEET
"are Must Be Exercised In Buying
Animals, as Much of Usefulness
Depends on Pedal Qualities.
When buying draft horses, the
farmer should look the feet over care
fully, for much of the horses' useful
ness depends upon Ufe feet.
The hoofs should be ample in size,
sound, smooth and symmetrical in
shape. The hoof Is a continuation of
the skin of the parts above. The
color of the skin decides the color
of the hoof. Dark colored hoofs are
preferred. Color counts for little,
however, if the hoofs are of poor
shape and texture. The horn should
be smooth, waxy looking, and , free
from cracks or ridges and the cornets
(hoof heads) should be open, promi

2. The second plan Is to keep tha
hogs in small lots and feed corn
mainly. This has been proven un
profitable with corn at the ' average
price in the south. Hogs thus fed
show a feverish condition, are restless
and are generally found rooting in the
The cost of raising hogs when fed
on corn alone is generally estimated
at 5 cents per pound, live weight,
when corn is worth 50 cents a bushel
and 7 cents a pound when, corn is
worth 70 cents a - bushel, that Is a
bushel of 'corn' will usually make ten
pounds of gain live weight when
carefully fed , to thrifty hogs. This
agrees with results at experiment sta
tions. But corn is not usually fed
with care, and when raised on corn
alone hogs are seldom very thrifty,
consequently the cost will average
much greater than this. Investiga-,
tions show that seven pounds of gain
to the bushel of corn Is nearer the
result when corn is fed on the cob
without other food. This would place
the cost of live gain at 10 cents a
pound with 75-cent corn.
The best way to make hog raising
profitable in the south is to graze the
hogs upon pastures prepared especial
ly for them, supplementing the green
food by the addition of, .a small grain
ration. Upon thl3 plan tyogs.can be
raised at an average cost of 1
cents to 3 cents a pound, depending
mainly upon the management of the
sows and pigs and upon an economic
plan of fattening.
GOOD CROPS FOR DRY FARMS
MIlo Maize, Kafir Corn, Sorghum, Pea
nuts and Millet Found to Be Ex
cellent In Southwest.
In the southwest nothing answers
better than milo maize, kaflr corn,
sorghum, peanuts and millet These
can be grown in any part of the coun
try where care has been taken to
conserve the moisture enough to give
the plants a good start Milo maize
is favored more than kaflr corn for
the reason that it will mature in a
slightly, shorter time. Kafir corn,
however, has the advantage that it
makes more fodder and fodder of a
better quality. Texas farmers plant
kaflr corn and plan to feed it in the
bundle. If they expect to head it
and feed it as grain alone they use
bpanisn peanuts are becoming very
popular in some parts of Texas, "and
as they are leguminous plants, they
fill a most important place in dry
farming. In fact, they occupy exact
ly the same position as red clover
and alfalfa do in the south. For a
long time it was thought that they
would not be adapted to dry farming,
but recent experiments both in Okla
homa and Texas demonstrate the
value of the peanut
To get the best results, the nuts
should be soaked for 24 hours and
then planted in a moist soil a little
before cotton planting time. About
one bushel per acre is usually plant
ed, and they are planted whole. This
will make the rows about 3 feet
apart with the plants about 15 to 18
inches apart in the row. . If there is
sufficient moisture to start the plants,
they will stand a long period- of
drouth without apparent damage.
Then when the rains do come they
will immediately set a large crop of
Tfce hay is harvested by mowing
over the vines with the ordinary
mower, and when properly cured this
hay is classed along with second-rate
alfalfa. The yield often amounts to
two tons per acre; For harvesting the
nuts the most satisfactory method la
to turn the hogs in and le them root
the vines up themselves. It is no un
common thing to secure from 600 to
1,000 pounds of pork per acre from
Spanish peanuts. Of course, if hogs
are not available, the vines will have
to be pulled and the nuts will remain
on them. As there isn't any very
strong market for peanuts, the only
reason for growing them is to use in
connection with farm animals. When
concentrated feeds are scarce, there
is no reason why Spanish peanuts
could not be grown with a great deal

FRESPASSERS ON RAILROADS
Many Lives Lost Every Year From
This Cause Reasons Why Tress
passing Should be Stopped.
Washington, D. C Statistics com
piled by the Interstate Commerce Com
mission are directing popular atten
tion strongly to the large number of
peoplo who are annually killed and In
jured while trespassing on the proper
ty of the railways of the United States
Refering to this subject in an address
delivered "before the Railroad Club of
Richmond, Va., President Finley, of
the Southern Railway Company, said:
"While speaking on the subject of
preventable accidents,, let. me call at
tention to the great, loss of life on
American railways by trespassers on
railway property. I will make no men
tion of the thousands of cases of per
sonal injuries 1 sustained annually by
persons trespassing on railway proper
ty, in connection with which the rail
ways are called upon to pay out an
nually large sums, or of the great dam
age done to railway property caused
by acts of trespassers, I will simply
refer to the loss of llfo.
' "The statistics of ' the interstate
Commerce Commission show that no
less than; 51,083 people were" killed
whiles trespassing on the property of
the railways of this country during the
ten years, 1902-1911, and that" out of
the total number of people, 10,396, kill
ed for the year ended June 30, 1911,
5.2S4, or more than 50 per cent, were
trespassers. The railways, at an ex
pense of millions of dollars for the in
stallation of block signals, have car
ried the prevention of collisions so far
that the total number of passengers
and employees killed - in such acci
dents annual Is about 400. While we
Bhould aim, through greater efficiency
of operation, to eliminate these acci
dents entirely, is It not worth while
for the governments to take some
action to stop the evil of trespassing
which costs an average of over 5,000
"If for no other reason than for the
protection of those who participate in
it trespassing should be abolished in
some way. I mention this in the hope
that not only those interested In the
welfare and prosperity of our rail
ways, fcnt In the welfare of the nation,
will do everything that is within their
power to aid in bringing about the
enactment of such reasonable and
helpful legislation as will result in a
great' saving of Kfe, and,' at the same
time, relieve the railways of the coun
