Caring for Own Stock; Prom

Fulfilling their promise in assuring
all couiara that they would have a good
time at Annual Lincoln County Jer
sey picnic, the Jerseynien did them
selves credit In making a big success
of the affair. Animals from the pure
bred herds of L. A. Hulburt, H. R.
Hartloy, C.& C. Christiansen, Charl.e
Miller, and B. W. Sperling, and from
the Calf Club members make an ex
hi bit which would be a credit to any
livestock show;. The value of the
proper foundation animals and the use
of good purebred sires In improving
the quality of the offspring, were fea
tures shewn. One very interesting
four generation exhibit, beginning with
the wonderful old cow Rosaline Eu
gania, owned by Christiansens, this
cuw s daughter, Fox, owned by B. W.
Sperling, daughter of this cow Fox
the Second, owned by Mr. Hulburt,
and Fox the Second's calf, sired by
Mr. J. W. Roger"s bull, were Bhown
and mado a most interesting study.
. Professor Fitts of O. A. C, gave a
very interesting Illustrated talk on
breeding, illustrating the points by, us
ing the animals on display. Follow
ing his talk the Cc:: Club member
were given a lesson In judging ana
tii u ltfuunea to score a class of four
calves. The alertness of the young
sters and their Interest in the subject
was wonderfully Illustrated in the re

than three fourths of the youngsters
placed the best calf first and a large
proportion of Uiem got first and sec

youngster, Garald Andersen, made a
per fact score, placing the four calves

GOATS PAYING AGAIN
SAY CLINE BROTHERS
Cline Brothers of Eddyvllle who are
two of Lincoln County's largest goat
growers, sold their 1922 clip from 600
goats for approximately $1100. When
it is considered that this money was
made principally out of brush and
browse from the highest hill tops. It
has a deep significance to Lincoln
County Just suppose we were an
nually converting all of each year's
crop of hill land goat pasture Into mo- j
hair. But there are some problems
to be met before this can realized
- mure iv uiu yreutuury tiuiuitu proD
lem. There is a need for a winter
feeding system to be developed In or
der that a given range will carry thru
the winter the number of goats neces
sary to keep tho feed down during the
spring and summer. Nevertheless
$1100 from 600 goats is not so bad.

In keeping with our announced pol-1
Icy to publish all the news for all our
readers, we have pursuaded County
Agent Cooter to add to the second
issuo of each month a special "Agri
cultural News Section.'' In this paper
we hope to have presented the pro
gress our farmers n-o making, a dis
cussion of new projects, new meth
ods and practices, in short the kind
of news that will be enjoyed by the
fanners, and by the business and pro
fessional man as well. Wle want to
help build up our dairy industry, bur
berry -business, Increase and eneour
age our small stock. Industry, get more
farmers on the land, get more land
cleared and reclaimed; and to do this
we need to know what Is going On In
these lines. Anything that helps the
farmer to make more money help
the business man, for his business Is
proportionately Increased. , j
We believe this new department
wlll.be a good proposition all the
way around. It should be a good thing
for our subscribers, for the average
subscriber takes the paper for the
news it contains. We believe that if
we can increase the news in our paper
we can Increase our circulation and if
we can ncrease our circulation we
can then get more results for our ad
vertisers. We are not running the
