50,000 BALES FOR l!»2t
A major industry for Shelby and
Cleveland county in 1924 would bo a
, mighty good thing t» strive for, but
' ‘i the most profitable thjig in which
more people would participate in the
Profits would be a cotton yield of 51,
000 bales. With favorable weather
that is a dry summer—it is pus ibl
. to accomplish this goal, but the be -t
Way to do it is to “build farms.”. Bv
this we not only mean to improve th
farms we hav^.by a more livrcn
use of fertiliser, but there are thou
sands of acres lying idle which should
be cleared and improved. To do this
we need more farm hoipe; and nior >
farmers. There are hundreds of goo 1
v 4 white families in South Carolina and
Georgia who have been discouraged
by the weevil ravages in their section
Who would gladly come to Cleveland
and ’deittify themselves'with the fan >
i ing life of our community, if the
> were told of the farm ng pos-ibilitle
* , here and our supposed immunity frbrn
»• •* the worst of the weevil ravages. Lm 1
^ year we had approximately 42,09”
In cotton and made nearly 39,000
- bales—a record which comes only s>
. * little short of a bale to the acre.
*■ . With facts like these and \v‘t’\ th >"
. sands of acres in the coun’ v that cj>->
be cleared and deveioned into a h:"h
”/7 state of cultivation, there is ampl <
n . room for more good substantial whteb
farmers throuhg whose veins flow
pure Anglo-Saxon blood. This sugges
tion on our part is something wh V
should engage the attention of th >
* newly formed agricultrul association
and the Kiwanis club and is a means
v in our opinion of producing 50,00'
bales of cotton during 1924.

Dairy Cows Improved hy
. Advanced Registry Test !
“N’n one thin?; has done so much to !
increase the productivity of pure bred j
dairy cattle in New Jersey as advanced
registry testing,” says \V. It. Itohbers.
dairy expert at the agricultural ex
periment station, New Brunswlcki
“The average production of all cows
has been given by the United States
census ns 4,000 pounds of milk n year.
Pure bred herds under the advanced
registry testa soon develop cows which
produce twice that amount of milk
without additional feed cost.
“Core in the management of cows
.Increases their productive capacity. It
is the care incidental to advanced reg
istry testing which often results In the
cow doing much bolter during her sec
ond testing period than her first.
“By means of these tests and the
records kept the hopelessly unproduc
tive cows arc detected so that the
dairyman can eliminate them from the
"It has long been recognized that
the bull Is the most important factor
In improving the herd. Through ad
vanced registry If is possible for Ihe
dairyman to observe whether or not
the daughters of the bull are better
than their dams. In tills way superior
bulls are discovered and are chosen to
raise the standard of the herd.
“The advisory experts maintained
by the department of dairy htishupdry
at the. State College of Agriculture,
New Brunswick, are always glad to
answer questions on advanced registry
or any other phase of dairying.”
Feeding Test Made With
Corn Silage and Fodder
The dairy cow has long found favor
because she is aide to convert large
quantities of bulky roughage into a
Concentrated and highly nutritious
product. There are, however', certain
roughages on which a cow produces
much better. As the business of dairy
ing is to produce milk profitably rather
than merely to convert fodder into
milk, a comparison of the Common
farm roughages is valuable.
A careful feeding test was made at
the Iowa experiment station with corn
silage and fodder, alfalfa and timothy
hay, and a combination of corn fodder
and timothy hay.
The use of corn fodder in place of
corn silage reduced the milk produc
tion G per cent, and the fat produc
tion 3 per cent. When silage is worth
•ID. 50 n tan, an acre o? corn yielding
eight tons. If converted into silage, is
worth Slid, while if converted into fod
der the value is reduced to $10,21.
When alfalfa 'hay was replaced by
timothy la a good dairy ration, milk
and butterfut production was reduced
7 per cent. When both alfalfa liaj
and silage were replaced at the same
time by fodder and timothy buy, the
milk yield dropped IS per cent an 1
fat 11 per cent.
If possible get the corn crop In the
silo. Timothy hay shoo'd he old and
clover or alfalfa bought to take Its
Wash Milk Cans Clean.
The cleansing of milk vessels is best
done by tl: t rinsing* them In cold or
lukewarm water to remove the urilk
after which they should be scrubbed
with a brush Inside and out. Use
hot water and washing powder and
then rinse in clean, hot water.
Show Up Poor Cows.
Almost any cow can make a profit
on pasture, but the feeding of grain
and roughage indoors soon shows up
the pw>r ones in dairy-improvement

ANSON IS CONSIDERIN'!;
ORGANIZING FOR A FAIR
The organization of a county fair is
being strongly urged in Anson. It is
believed Anson county could have
ni ■ of the best fairs in the state. It
a leading agriculture county and is
’■> ginning to take an interest in nian
ifacturing enterprises of different
.'nils. The idea of a county fair re
■ iverf endorsement at t he community
' i;. s held last fall in that county, and
he'project is being strongly set forth
y the chamber of commerce.
Tost* have shown tIniT rapidity 1»
one of the essentials in milking a cow.
Massaging the cow's udder with the
hand excites nervous action which In
turn stimulates action of the milk
glands. The more rapid the massage
movements, the greater Is the nervous
stimulation of gland action, and a
greater amount of milk 'will he yield
ed. Not only is the quantity of milk
increased, but the faster the milk Is
drawn the richer it is m butt erf at.
