By L. A. AMMON
The Farmers Federation of Ashe
ville, are under promise to send a
truck as far as Rosman every two
weeks, beginning Friday, May 1st.
Farmers can meet the truck along
the highway and sell their chickens
at Asheville prices, less what it
would cost to send them to Ashe
ville. Get the dates in your head so
you will not miss the proper Fridays.
The time to start at Rosman will be
about 10 o'clock, a.m., aad reacn
Brevard about noon. Then on down
the line, reaching Blantyre about 2,
p.m. The exact time will depend 011
the amount of chickens to handle.
For those above Rosman. I will \
be glad to handle their chickens if j
they will express them to me on the
morning train of the date, at Ros
man or Brevard. I will see that the
chickens are weighed, and send them
their check. May send them col
lect and 1 wili take cost from check.
This weeks prices are as follows:
Hens. 20c tb ; Friers, 1 and 1-- to 2
lbs. 45c tb ; Roosters. 9c lb.. Eggs
in cases only. 25c dozen. Turkeys,
20c tb. and Ducks 14c tb .
If we wish to keep this truck com
ing our way. we must grow chickens
for sale, as well as for eggs, and
when one grows friers through the
entire season, it proves very profit
In picking out hens you may wish
to sell, of hens that have a yellow
skin, or shanks, pick the ones that
still have the yellow. A heavy laye; ;
soon losses the yellow in shanks and
beak, and she uses it for coloring
the volk of the egg.
If you have to choose between
selling two year olds and yearlings,
watch for the leg coloring', and
among the older hens you will often .
find some that have grown baggy be
hind with fat. This,, in many cases,
-is due to being egg bound, and the
hen is good for the pot at once, as
the excessive fat will sooner or later
cause a stroke; drop off of roost
dead with dark comb.
Do not rush anything to market
that has a fair worth in egg produce
tion, as the truck will be back later.
From the present outlook, it will
not be many weeks till all those in
terested in poultry will be called to
gether to form a poultry association,
for the good of business in the
Would be glad to have any one
terested. to speak to the ^a"n
Agent, so he can better judge the
sentiment of the- growers.
Observation on Acreages
From what I know and can see, we
will not have potatoes enough to sell
Greenville as many as the past year,
as we only have about five hundred
bushels surplus this year. White po
tatoes seem to be about one-fourth
Corn crop looks some larger than
last vear. Many old fields have been
plowed up for the first time in sever
al years, but they are poor yielders
and* will not increase the total yield
Expect some increase in sorghum
cane, as it is proving a good crop.
Most every one is planting beans
as usual, trusting the beetle will be
less troublesome this year, and so
far, he has not shown up in numbers,
as he did by this time last y?er.
The early cabbage crop will
considerable larger than last year,
but not more than can be handled
here and over the mountain.
Lime Season Ended
The lime season has ended with a
large tonnage handled. The special
price ends the first. More than
1.020 tons of lime were used this
vear. If followed by clover, it will
mean around 800 extra tons of clover
Transylvania County led the State
in vield of corn per acre last year,,
and' there is not much reason why we
should not do it every year. Our
seed beds are much better prepared
this year, and we will give them a
hard race again for the honor.
The general outlook for the Coun
ty this year, is very good. Prices
will doubtless be better for most
things, and every one seems to be in
a good spirit to do a real summers
