Last Monday and Tuesdav as vou
will remember were cold days, and
in faact it has not been very sultry
all the week. Fans have not been
necessary to keep the personal tem
perature down to normals The wind
for the most of the week superceded
me aninciai ian. Any way, in spite
of the cold, rain, wind and mud, and
frozen ground; for we had some of
all; we succeeded in getting in some
good work. Mr. Luther Durham,
Tryon Route 1, took advantage of a
lull in the wind and sowed a nice
bunch of permanent pasture. Then
having an engagement with Mr. W..
B. McSwain, we fell in there Wednes
day p. m., the third, and sowed grass
seed until moon up, and then had tc
retire before comnletinsr the iob.
Now, I am going totell you some
something I saw at" McSwain's. 1
saw two things on that farm, one ol
them wpuld make a hungry cow's
mouth water to look at them. The
thing that would make a cow's moutl
produce an extra amount of saliva at
sight is a green grass field. This
piece of grass was sown one vear age
last October. It has had little at
tention and has almost wintered six
head of . cattle this winter and. that
without other feed, and these cattle
are in an excellent condition. Next
vmter Mr. McSwain will be ready tc
show farmers of Polk county how tc
winter cattle on pastures. All doubt
ing Thomases who still think thai
grass won't grow in Polk county just
:all around and talk with Mr. Mc
Swain and let him show you a few
ihings. The other thing I saw that
would make a hungry human's moutr
water, was a Rhode Island Red pul
let grown by Mrs. Hershell McSwain
lhis pullet, if owned by Dr. Kaupp..

And when I say farmers I mean fruit

time to "begin plans by which you can
have something creditable to carry to

But the purpose of this little talk
is to get everybody in the harness for
