We read in the sacred book, "the hrst shall be last and . the last shall be first," so winter has come at last. As our items last week reached you too late, for publication, you may add these items: , I. Henderson savs that something scares his cow and makes her break loose, and runs his dog off, and he believes it is a bear, so he brings the cow to the house and ties her near at night. Such a thing might be, as he lives niim up on tne mountain near the woods. , " We want to know when Jim Brock and Dr. Bushnell run, and where they intend to run. In Saluda the. turns are so short some one is liable to be run over, and with such giants, as they are would be equal to an: auto accident.

Sams, County Agent HERE IS THE RIGHT FEED FOR YOUR BABY CHICKS 36 v The feed for baby chicks whicn ims been used with success by the Poul try Department of the - North Caro lina State Agricultural College is, ac cording to Dr. B. F. Kaupp, head of this work, composed of infertile eggs, boiled hard, rolled oats and bread crumbs. One hard-boiled egg, one teacup heaping full of breakfast rolled oats, and one heaping teacupf ull of finely pulverized stale bread. Either wheat or corn bread will do. The egg , contains much stimulative substance called vitamine, and greatly aids in starting chicks off. Feed this mixture for ten days to two weeks and then gradually change it to the following dry mash and grain feed: C i. 1 . . parts ground oats, z parts corn meal, 2 parts wheat bran, 1-2 part bone meal, and 1 part meat meal. Mix well and keep in small hoppers before them at all times, and three imes a day feed small quantities of small chicken feed or finely cracked corn and wheat. Keep green feed and grit before the chicks at all times. Keep their quarters clean, supply plenty of fresh water in clean vessels, and they, should grow well on this ration. Give them milk to drink. Dr. Kaupp will be glad to furnish information on how to brood chickens, how to operate an incubator, or to send plans of types of coops and houses, free of. charge. "I like to read the city papers, and other printed things, but I wouldn't miss the home news that my country paper brings." There's a difference - between a bucket of water from a pump and a bucket full from a faucet, a difference of many steps that a home water sup ply system would save. 4 W. W. Gray $ii'p of Women.

GOOD I0AD PHILOSOPHY A Hen Does Not Stop Scratching Because Worms Are Scarce J When the worm crop is below parrMr&. Hen goes right, on scratching. In fact, she scratches harder and longer and deeper than ever. I Take a tip ftom , the lowly hen. When opposition is raised against bonds and good roads, fight harder then ever. DON'T WAIT START NOW AND KEEP IT GO ING. Remember, Your Community is judg ed by its roads. If you love your commun ity help pull her out of the mud. North Carolina now has 73 govern ment accredited tuberculosis-free herds. Only seven states . have a ' larger number, and Virginia is the only one of the seven in the South. The country editor had his day at farmers' week at the State College of Agriculture at Ithaca, N. Y., during February. Among the facts brought out in the discussion was that - the country newspaper at the present time is facing, even more than is the city paper, the problem of rising costs and scarcity of help. By no means was the sentiment of the conference that the day of the country newspaper is past. Indeed, one man said he felt that perhaps never before "had the country paper had so much of a duty to perform as it has today" because of the unrest and feverish activity of American life. The local paper, he said, places emphassis on the homely things of life and lends stability and sanity to the community.
