REACHING k MAN I IN THE FIELD Andrew M. Soule, President Georgia State College Of Agriculture. 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 en’s clubs, churches, schools and in dividuals. In all 1,282,088 persons, calculating attendance on the num ber of sessions held, have been reached. Extension Attendance Summary. Educational Trains. Number Attend- Miles Year. Meetings. ance.

Early Hatching 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 mean low vitality cjjicka. a larger Wood's Productive Seed Corns.

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 limited extent. 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.

Frequent sneezing, dullness, inactivity, reduced appetite, eyes watery and inflamed, cough, dif ficult breathing, discharge from nos trils. 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. If nasal passages are clogged and breathing is difficult, steam with hot water to which turpentine has been added.
