The veterans are in a much better
state of mind now that »the corn is
tasseling and the young roasting
ears are appearing. They know that
it is only a matter of time until
they will he holding ail ear by both
ends sliding it between their lips and
sipping the delirious kernels which
give them strength to go forth for
another' day's work. Then, too, there
will lie a good sale for the young corn
and they ran certainly use the money.
Many will have to buy disks in order
to make a good seed bed. They, will
have to make some prolit on tliAir
corn as the last Hood certainly did
not help their rollon any. Many of
tlie furmers have very poor drainage,
and i he water is still several inches
ii]i on their cotton. The grass and
"ruckle' luirrs are coming mighty
fast, and then no one knows just
what damage the Ilea hopper, boll
weevil and many oilier insects will
: do. Much of the cotton must he
thinned and cleaned, and with help
so .scarce, it does not look too bright
j for the future, saying nothing of the
| job they fare trying to get il picked.
The writer will help the vets pull
their corn, dig his potatoes or any-
thing around the farm, lull when it.
comes to picking or pulling cotton,
i please let me do something else,
j We were fortunate in having four
goud men from Victoria talk to us
at the last meeting, namely John
Crawford, James Oliver, James Hull,
and II. .1. l’terson. Mr. Hull and
Mr. Peterson arc with the Soil Con-
servation Service in Victoria under
the direction of our good friend Mil-
laid Shaw. They are veterans going
to school in Victoria, and are getting
the help of the men connected willi
tile soil conservation service. Uoth
of the hoys told us they would not
lie wit limit the assistance of these
men as il was just like having two
more partners helping you willi your
work ami seeing to it that you made
prolit where you hail made u loss
hefore. In several of their lields he
lore the Soil Conservation Service
assisted them they had a solid sheet
of water after each caiu.l'ur several
days, Hie laud was light, and as far
as crops growing there, il was a lotul
loss. .\uw wince they have giod
drainage they have good crops, and
a few hours after rains the water
is all gone. Imst week the hoys said
they had eleven inches of rain, but
as tlieir land was terraced the
drainage ditches took the water off
John Crawford and Jumes Oliver
are working together as partners.
Crawford has 400 acres and 40 cows;
Oliver owns TOO acres and JO cows.
Crawford lias a Grade A Dairy,
while Oliver does not, hut they are
now working toward iliat end. The
reason that they want both to have
Grade A Dairies is that the price
milk from a Grade A. Dairy is, base,
$0.45 per 100 pounds, with 7 cents
added for each point; while the price
for ungraded milk is, base, $3.50 per
100 pounds, with 7 cents added for
each point. There is just as much
work with cows in a dairy that pro-
duces ungraded milk us there is
from cows in a Grade A dairy, but
the price is about double.
Crawford has milk that tests from
4.0 to 4.0 ou the average from mouth
to mouth. A dairy specialist comes
from A. & M. each month and-^ests
the milk. Once each year all the
cows are Hangs and T. II. tested.
This lias to he done in all Crude A
dairies, lie vacillates heifers be-
tween 4 and S months of age. -lie
say,s that if a heifer or cow is vac-
cinated after siie is .S month old she
will always show a slight reaction
to tlie liungs test. The writer is
glad to slate that a law lias recently
been passed making it compulsory to
brand a II on the jaw of every cow
if she shows positive to the Hungs
Another interesting subject dis-
cussed by Mr. Crawford was pure
Apple cider. The writer... is fond of
Ibis, hut the last tiling we would
have thought of doing with cider
would have been feeding it to Jersey
| cows to increase the butter fat. Some
I of the vets said they would have
drunk the eider and rubbed the .’bottle
| on 1 lie cow. However, Mr. Crawford
j says as his milk tests high ill butter
i fai, in fuel higher Until most dairies,
he gives most of the credit to the
apple cider he puls oil (lie rows feed,
j This is giii'ii two ounces in the morn-
ing and two ounces al night, lie
sure you give the pure apple eider
and not grape vinegar. The writer
is giving this informal ion for dairy
cows ONLY, and not for lisliing
parlies, so don't blame me if you fall
out of the bout. *
James Oliver made un interesting
talk, in fuel both boys bold a round
table discussion and ' it *is hard to
state just wbut each dtie said. We'll
just give them both credit for such
line talks. James told us in regard
to clover they found it puys to plant
just a little early rather than too
late. lie says this neighbors have
planted clovers- in August and Sep-
temlier and they have gotten just as,
good results us when planted later.
When the seed are put in tiie ground
early, they just lie there, and when
the times comes for them to come up,
they will start growing. They have
had just as good results in Victoria
County by just disking their land
and planting as they have from fiat
breaking. He says the extra work
does not pay. They plunted 13 acres
the HutiuiVi clover in October and
started grazing in Junuary. After
tile IJubum hud gotten a good growth
they put five cows to the' ucre for
three months. They also have 47
acres in Hubatn and Dallis Grass,
and says this combination Is......JugL
about the best anyone can get.
Mastitis is something they are
bothered with over there in their
dairy herds. Tills eon be caused by
the cow living hooked on the bug,
lying on a rtick or any hard lick ou
the cow's udder. They have hud
success in ninny cases by applying
hot Epsom salts/packs to tlit* udder,
and by handling it gently. When you
mill; lie easy with the teat.....do not
pull too lim'd. Penicillin is used
sometimes, hut they say if too many
needles and other practices are used
on the bug too often they do more
harm than good. After a matter of
time if the trouble is not cured, Ibis
quarter will lie sealed off so that no
mill; is produced there.
For bloat they use Mineral oil.
pounds of milk dully.
Mr. W. II. Hamblen and Mr. I. T.
Taylor talked to the veterans last
week. Mr. Hamblen tulkeil to the
veterans on contracts uud advised
them on many subpects they should
know when transacting business.
Mr. Taylor talked about the veterans
school |and its begintng. We hope
they will visit us again.
Mr. Arvile Elliott of Victoria talk-
ed to the veterans about land values
and cotton insects, lie thinks land
values are too high and are due for
a tumble in the near future.
The writer wishes to thank the
following for wonderful dinners: Mr.
and Mrs. Dick DeNeefe, Mr. and
Mrs. Walter Schwarz, Henry Reie-
liardt, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Oasuer,
Joe Marek and liis parents. We

These boys made as interesting
talks as we have beard in some time.
We lmpe they will return and talk
to us again.
We failed In state Unit one of
dairy herds is composed of 80'/o
registered Jersey cows. They arc
gelling their best production from
these cows, and are thoroughly eon
best for a dairy herd. They own
throe five star Jersey hulls. They
have their goal set high for a 1000
pound butter fat cow. They say I lief
may not reach this goal for some
time, but they are headed that way.
They will sell their grade cows for
around $150.00, but their registered
cows do not leave the burn for less
than $200.00 cash. The writer plans
to make another round of the dairies
in Victoria County and try to get
100 Jersey heifers. We have our
goal set at 300 more Jersey cows for
Jackson County. When * there Is a
break in the eattle market, and w.o
expect a good break this fall, milk

The writer and Jimmy Airhnrt
went to the Dairy Show at Weimar
last week, and we have never had a
better time. There are 15 Grade A
dairies within six miles of Weimar
and they produce around 00,000

plan to do so much and seem to do
so little, although we have traveled
1030 miles in May up to date. Tho
good people of Edna and Jackson
County have been kind to me, uud

more than they will ever know. If
we ever leave this good country, and
