a sort of sensation a few yearr ago by
paying $750 for a Duroc boar and
$900 for a Duroc sow in one of J. J.
McLaln's sales on Spring Branch
Farm near Anna. The price of the

with McKinney friends this week. He
will be auctioneer at three sales in
McKinney between now and late fall.
He says he is advertising Collin
county at all his sales.
The Progress edition of the Poland
China Journal contained 102fi pages,
the largest edition they ever issued.
Parvin & Cunningham were well
represented in the advertising columns,
having one double page ad and one
single page ad.
One of the leading Fort Worth daily
papers carried a front page cartoon
on the George Llllard $3,200 sow.
The press of Texas believes in pure-
bred livestock but there are a lot of
newspapers, like a lot of individuals,
that can't see the size of the business
and ita great future.
J. F. Parker of Blue Ridge now has
about fifteen head of mighty good

Jim Cunningham was in from Pros-
per Friday on business. He says that
the stuff that goes in their Poland

going to sell twenty or more daugh-
ters of the great Texas Grand Cham-
ipion Council Hill Bus'er. They will al-
so sell a number of fine sows and

attract attention such as has not yet
I been seen in a Poland China sale In

The following item from S. W.
Ohaney, McKinney, R 2. appeared in
The Poland China Journal: "I only
had one gilt to farrow this spring. She
is Lady M Timm 832866. At Uie age of
15 months, June 4. she farrowed nine
pigs—six sows and three boars. The
pigs were sired by Big Timm 347219
by Sievers Big Timm. The gilt saved
all nine and the pigs are doing nicely.
Lady M Timm is by Texas Timm. So
those pigs have two crosses to the
original Big Timm of Nebraska,
which, I understand, was three times
grand champion. Lady M Timm was
farrowed by Texas Hadley by Chap-
ter's Model, grand champion of the
Texas State Fair in 1916. Their
granddam was Bue Grass Hadley,
first-prize winner in her class at the
Missouri State Fair in 1915. I feel that
1 have pretty good bloodlines as well
as good individuals, as Lady M Timm
won first in her class last fall at the
Collin County Fair."
The boys and girls of Collin oountv
who own Jersey calves will do well to
read the new folder recently issued
by Mrs. J. Riley Green of Wolfe City,
which tells how to select and fit Jer-1
says for the show and sale ring. The!
Secretary of the Collin County Pure- 1
bred Livestock Association has quite
a number of these folders In hand and
will gladly give them to boys and girls
or to adults as for the matter for they
contain good suggestions, care, feed-
ing and grooming the Jersey.

Located in the heart of the Mis-
sissippi Valley, the Illinois Central
has always been deeply Interested in
aiding agriculture, and at the present
timo it. is doing everything within its
power, with the facilities at lrml, i<>
help tho farmer. It is true the Illinois
Central is not able to furnish all tho
ears requested for (.'rain loading on
its lines at tho present time, nor is it
able to furnish all the cars requested
for shipping agricultural machinery
from the manufacturing centers to
tho farms, but it is striving to do
its level best under the unfavorable
circumstances which exist.
Within the last few weeks the Illi-
nois Central has addressed a letter to
every banker, newspaper, county
farm adviser and home demonstra-
tion agent located along Its lines In
tho SUites of Kent ucky,Tennessee and
Mississippi, tendering cooperation in
developing the farming Industry, and
particularly the dairy Industry. B Is
the Intention to increase these efforts
until tho farms in tho Illinois Cen-
tral territory of tho South are
brought up to the standard of the
farms of Iowa, Indiana and Illinois,
developed tho road has in recent
years taken a leading part in trying
to Improve tho breed of live stock.
But, the question naturally sugK^Vts
Itself, what are some of the concrete
examples? One is that the road
purchased one hundred purebred
bulls, fifty of which were given away
as prizc>s to the boys and girls be*
longing to the Baby Beef and Dairy
("liihs along its lines in the States of
Tennessee and Mississippi.
The company retained tho owner-
ship of fifty of tho pure-bred bulls
and placed them In communities in
Tennessee and Mississippi for brecd-
inf purposes, free of charge to t>\«
farmer#. This lias been tho meai>¥
of greatly improving the herds in thd
Illinois Central territory. Once start,*
ed, tiio movement grew rapidly an<5
spread in all directions.
At one time it was thought that the
hest grade of cattle could not bj
raised in the State of Mississippi.
The Idea has been entirely exploded,
because during the past few year*
cattle bred and reared In the State of
Mississippi have taken first premium
in the foremost live stock shows of
The Illinois Central has also been
very active in promoting the dairy In-
dustry by establishing up-to-date
creameries. It advertised that it
would furnish a butter maker for one
year at its own expense at any point
on Its line where the farmers anil
business men would establish a
creamery. Thus something like nlne-^
teen creameries were established In
the South. Tho dairy prolucts of
Mississippi In 1919 amounted to
$2,400,000, while In 1912 the total
dairy products of this State amount-
ed to hut $4,400.
