But if you act in time you

of them are lower than they
were last fall . . . Look at this
new 1933 Goodyear Path

pertwist Cord body, it turns
in more miles, more blowout
protection, more safety, than
you could get from any tire
costing four times as much

worn, dangerous tires with
Pathfinders all around. No

A little dog, forlorn and sad
Beside the home that once he’d had.
They’d moved away and left him
He’d loved them so, it did seem queer.
He’d tried to run and follow them
But they had gone too fast for him.
He wished he had a bone to chew—
That always helps when one is blue.
T’was getting cold and very dark—
Perhaps they’d hear him if he’d bark!
He waited all that livelong day.
They never came—they’d—moved—
away!—Our Dumb Animals.
BY W. B. COLLINS, County Agent.
The beef cattle outlook at present
is very discouraging. I would not ad
vise farmers to hold back too much
and wait for better prices. Any beef
cattle you have for sale should be
sold as fast as reasonable prices can
be had. Grain and feed prices will be
comparatively high and there is noth
ing in sight that will justify buying
feed to carry cattle over another
year with the expectation of getting
higher prices.
Every farmer should read carefully
and study the cattle outlook, publish
ed in The Alleghany Times this week
and next. This Outlook is released
by the United States Department of
Agriculture and is the most com
plete information to be had.
We had a very successful farm
tour on last Wednesday. About 35
interested farmers made the tour.
Visits were made to the following
Edd Hawthorne’s, where we looked
over his field of certified seed Irish
potatoes, which we estimated to yield
better than 200 bushels per acre.
At this field Mr. H. R. Niswonger,
Horticultural Specialist, made a talk
on seed selection and growing certi
fied seed potatoes. While on this farm
we saw a herd of well-bred beef cat
tle, Lespedeza being successfully
grown, a fine yield of soybeans being
grown to plow under in preparation
for- next year’s potato crop, a part of
the flock of over 300 turkeys which
were hatched in an incubator and
reared in a brooder.
Carl Hampton’s Farm, where we
looked over fields of Kobe Lespedeza,
Korean Lespedeza, and Common ^s
pedeza. Every one was impressed
with the fine growth of Lespedeza
found on Mr. Hampton’s farm. The
Common Lespedeza on his farm was
affording a large amount of fine graz
ing at that time.
W. B. Collins’ Farm, where we saw
the Trench Silo which had just been
completed. Mr. F. R. Farnham made
a talk on the value of silage in win
tering livestock and the advantages
of a Trench Silo. This Silo was con
structed at a cost of $15.00 and it is
estimated to hold 35 tons of silage.
The farmers present at this meeting
were impressed with the small cost
of this silo and the most of them
think that the Trench silo will prove
an economical means of wintering
beef cattle.
On this farm we also saw a good
growth of Common Lespedeza which
had been sown on an old pasture last
DeWitt Bryan’s Farm east of
Glade Valley, we saw the finest yield
of string beans I have ever seen
grow in this county. There is 4 acres
in the field of beans and they have
been averaging yields of 250 bushels
of beans per acre. Mr. Bryan had
about 40 people in the field picking
beans when we arrived and they had
picked about 300 bushels of beans
that day. High yields of beans are
being made on this farm by plowing
under a crop of soybeans and cow
peas, sowing the land in rye and
turning under the rye and beans.
About 800 pounds of high grade fer
tilizer and 65 pounds of beans are
used to seed an acre.
We have visited several merchants
in regard to making up our premi
um list for the Alleghany Agricul
tural Fair. At present it looks as
though our premium list will be
about the same as it was last year.
I would like for the farmers and their
wives to begin making preparations
for an exhibit at the Fair.
