r Teaching” is the term
Commonly applied to carrying agricul
tural information out from an agricul
tural college to the farmer. Extension
teaching wqultl soon end in failure if
,a college did not prove that it had
-practical knowledge to give to the
farmer. During the last eight years
the Georgia State College of Agricul
ture has boon doing extension teach
ing, that is, it has been going out to
meet the farmer in institutes, field
(meetings, farmers' schools, educational
trains, etc. The figures will tell the
story more forcibly than words wheth
er or not the farmers of Georgia arc
finding the services of the College ac
ceptable or not.
In the last eight years 5,179 exten
sion schools, field and miscellaneous
meetings have been held through the
influence of our extension depart
ment, In co-operation with railroads,
boards of trade, chambers of com
merce, farmers’ organizations, boards
of education, fair associations, wom

dividuals. In all 1,282,088 persons,

Means Winter Eggs
More eggs can be obtained in the
late fall and early winter when the
prices are highest by hatching the
young chicks early. Pullets of the
heavier breeds, as the Plymouth
Rocks, Rhode Island Reds, Wyan
dottes and Orpingtons, begin laying
when about six months old. They
should be hatched during February in
Georgia. The smaller breeds, such
as the Leghorns, Anconas and Minor
cas, begin laying in a shorter time,
about five months, and should be
hatched during the month of March.
It pays to hatch early, feed well and
have the young birds matured and
laying when next winter's highest
prices are paid for eggs.
The male birds should be mated
with the females at least two weeks
before eggs are saved for hatching.
Small, weak or sickly birds should be
culled out of the breeding flock. Only
healthy, vigorous males and females,
with well developed heads and bodies,
should be used. Low vitality parents

Recent Bulletins of College
The College of Agriculture is almost j
constantly issuing circulars, bulletins
and other forms of publications, all
of which are free. They are made j
as timely as possible and applicable
to conditions in existence now. The
fertilizer situation has developed cir
culars on potash and rock phosphate.
What to do for potash, of course, is
a vital question. Warning is issued
in this circular against use of caustic
soda for potash, efforts being made
by some people to sell such materials
in Georgia as a substitute for pot
ash. The bulletin on the use of rock
i phosphate as a substitute for phos
phoric acid tells what may be expect
ed and warns farmers not to expect
immediate results from it.
Circulars on lime have been issued
from time to time, and one is in
course of preparation touching new
phases of the lime question as devel
oped recently in the state. Particu
larly for the use of corn clubs and
demonstration agents, a circular has
been issued on corn cultivation.
"Farm Management Under 801 l
Weevil Conditions” is the subject of a
timely and important bulletin issued
to tell how farmers can cautiously
change their farm practices, but urges
them to keep on growing cotton to a
ACUTE CATARRH OF PIGS
Dr. W. M. Burson, Veterinarian, Geor
gia State College Of Agriculture.
Cold in the head often occurs in
pigs during cold, wet weather. The
disease is frequently seen among pigs
not properly sheltered, or which are
overcrowded in insanitary surround
ings. Pigs that burrow under piles
of manure or stacks of forage are
most commonly affected. Exposure to
cold rains and draughts and dipping
during cold weather are other causes.
Symptoms. Frequent sneezing,
dullness, inactivity, reduced appetite,
eyes watery and inflamed, cough, dif
ficult breathing, discharge from nos
Treatment. Correct the in
sanitary conditions, provide prop
er shelter, prevent overcrowding.
Feed on warm slop of bran
or shorts. Give a laxative dose of
epsom salts or castor oil in the feed.

breathing is difficult, steam with hot
