The third annual Haaood countv
ram sale was held at Clyde on Sat
d:y, July 23. A number of private
sales were arranged during the day,
but the main interest was the auction
a?e starting at 1:30.
Seventeen rams were sold to the
nighett bidder, all purebred and al
most all registered. These were all
mature rams, most of them either
yearlings or two year olds. Six
teen were Hampshires. While the
bidding wa6 spirited, tlw prices were
not high. The top being f20.00 fcr a
fine yearling sold by Win-Mock
Farm to C- L. Moody, of Cecil Town
ship. Besides those sold at auct.on
four or more changed hands at pri
Two rams went to Bunombe, one
each to Macon and Madiecn, and the
remaining seventeen to Haywoccl
The bulk of the auction sal? was
the offering of Win-Mock Farm of
Advance, North Caroloina. Mr.
George Evans, manager of the farm,
brought five yearlings and seven two
year olds. These were all in excel
lent breeding condition and were ap
preciate! by the farmers as shown by
the number who bid on the offeiings.
Mr. A. C. Walker ef Clyoe. Route
1, had a fine group of ram lambs, some
of which he told at private sale. Mr.
Walker has been a breeder of Hamp
shire sheep for nearly forcy years.
The results are shown in the fact
that the sheep of Haywood county are
of superior quality to those of any
other county west of Asheville. By
the excellence of his breeding he has
made the Hampshire the predomi
nating breed of the county.
Other breeders had a few animals
in the sale, and the quality brought
sales at reasonable prices.
These buying at auction were L. H.
Biamlett, Robert McCracken, J. M.
Queen, Medford Lestherwood, W. D.
Ketner, and Matt Davis, of Waynes
ville, Z. V. Ferguson and C. J. Rogers,
of Crabtree, C.E. Owens of Delhvood,
J. G. Garrett of Leicester, J. B.Hipps,
L. C. Moody, D. J. Noland, and C. C.
.Zvans, of Canton.
The ram sale in the last three years
has placed sixty purbred rams on
farms in Haywood county, and quite
a number in addition of registered
;emales. Some young breeders are
starting in the business, who in a few
years will be offering high quality
registered Hampshire sheep to farm
ers of Haywood and other Western
Carolina counties. Some of these
are N, W. Carver, of Waynesville,
Route 2, and Ray Mann, of Canton,
One of the goals of the 5-10 year
farm program set by the county com
mittee was to standardize to the
Hampshire breed. With the present
predominance of this breed it would
be a forward step when every lamb
leaving Haywood would be of the
same breed and type.
The annual ram sale was organized
by Jas. L. Robinson, County Agent,
three years age. He has spent con
siderable time in working up the in
terest in the sale and the offerings
hi-vp been improving each year.
Mr. L. I. Case of the U. S. Depart
ment of Agriculture was present at
the sale and discussed some of the
methods of management to increase
-rnfits in sheep growing.

In view of the recent deplorable
happenings among criminals it is
gratifying to know that we have at
least one warden of a large prison!
who has an understanding and sym
pathetic attitude toward his prisoners.
If one has not the time to read
the entire book (I venture to say that
no one who begins it will put it down
until the last page is read) he can
nick out chapters here and there
which will grin the imaeination and
cause one to do some pretty serious
thinking, and the last chapter itself
is a wonderful summing up of the en
situation. . -
