THE LYONS PROGRESS, LYONS, GEORGIA.
BY C. G. GARNER, County Agent, and MISS WILLIE MAE VANN,
Home Demonstration Agent.
Have the Pou’try Sales been of
any benefit to you? I would like to
have some letters from farmers who
have made use of these poultry sales
tefling what they have meant to them
I want your opinion as this sea
sons runs are over with for the spring
and there very probably wiE not be
any more sales until this fall. If
you like them or if you do not like
them, write me.
Total Amount Poultry Sold in
Toombs County has marketed ac
cording to my records of the Sea
board cars and the Georgia and
Florida cars from the foTowing
points: Vidalia, Lyons, Ohoopee and
Normantown, 21,285 pounds of poul
try for $4,549.49. In addition to
this a large -quantity has been sold
through Alston and Uvalda since
those points are close to a largb poul
try producing section of Toombs,
but we have no way of telling what
portion of the sa r es at those points
came from Toombs County. The
above amount represents a full car
load and half of another carload that
has been sold in this county fron
March 29th to June 21st —three
months. There is no way of telling
the actual saving to the farmers
since the cars have kept the Savan
nah and other Georgia markets in a
healthly condition. By doing that
every person who has either shipped
or sold chickens in any way has ben
efited by these sales.
Total Carried off by Seaboard Cars
The Seaboard cars that have made
five trips have carried off 121,567
pounds of poultry and paid out to the
farmers $26,229.03 a’ong the route.
That much poultry in addition to the
regular receipts that the Georgia
Markets have been receiving would
nave depressed many of them. But
the Seaboard is not the only road
that has been operating these cars.
Others have been loading cars regu
larly. The Georgia and Florida have
made fivet rips. Many others have
made one or more trips. The total
results have been that large quanti- j
ties of Georgia poultry has been ship-;
ped to New York and relieved what
appeared live an over production in
poultry for this season. Really we
believe that this one factor has saved
the poultry producer of Georgia
many thousands of dolars and has
been a big factor in saving the poul
try industry from a big slum which
w-ould have ruined it as a cash crop
for the farmer. A great deal of
credit is due the Seaboard Air Line
railroad for their untiring efforts in
making this a success and sfso to Mr.
J. A. Relly Poultry Company of At
lanta who haves tuck by the cars
faithfully and given the top of the
market on each run and often run
cars at a loss when they did not load.
Miss Vann has worked faithfully in
this county and has demonstrated
culling poulrty to many farmers and
their wives. She has brought in
much poultry and been of much help
in notifying the farmers of the sale.
The merchants of all of the towns in
1 this county have stuck by the cars
i without a sing’e exception that I
know of. They have contributed
i much to the sucess of this enter
i prise and the farmers of the county
- have shown their appreciation.
Stag* Sold at Frier Prices
One of the commission men in
, Savannah, D. Kirkland, wrote the
! county agent a nice letter saying that
be could use all the stags that came
into these sales. We appreciated
that offer very much as the cars does
not care' for the friers over 2 1-4
! pounds. We did not use his offer
| because the hotel here bought al’ of
j the overgrown friers as they prefer
| them to the small frier and thus help
i ed in handling the poultry.
Kill 801 l Weevils
Toombs County has the best pros
pects for a cotton crop she has had in
several years. These cToudy days
are fine for dusting each night and
keeping a coat of dust on your cot
ton. Try to dust your cotton once
! each week any how. Calcium arse
nate can be bought now for 11 l-4c
Miss Ollie Powell. Hope she will

delivered Lyons, Vidalia, Ohoopee,
Uvalda or Normantown. At that
j price you can afford to risk losing a
dusting or two in order to protect
j your co<tton. By all means stap on
, top of the weevils. If you have him
completely under control you will not
need to dread the cloudy days, but
I you do not a cloudy wet spell will
a good crop.
The lazy man always blames the
weather for his failure. The hust
ler is too busy to lay the blame, he
just naturally keeps a jump ahead of
the grass and of tihe weevils and
makes the cotton crop. Calcium arse
nate dusted on is good insurance.
You can get Feeny hand dusters
from the First National Bank of
Lyons for $11.60 delivered which is
the wholesale cost, or you can get
the Springfield for $5.00 You can
get the Johnson Duster for $40.00 or
'-ou can get the Georgia for $70.00,
i the Woodruff for $63.00. The Per
| faction for $67.50 The Perfection,
C orgia and Woodruff are giving ex
f-'ptionaVy good results and some of
Johnsons are doing equally well.
If you will use a two row duster for
i while you will not use a hand dust-
Ic" 'rg. You can dust 18 acres of
, on. by dusting all night with a
j't .v : - ow machine and there are very
few people who will use a hand ma
ch're on more than 5 acres and use
regularly. Keep your cotton dust
ed at least once each week and lets
| make a cotton crop this year. Others
have done it, why not you?
Save the Hogs
Reports indicate a short hog crop
for Georgia this year. That means
the Georgia butchers and packers
I v4’l have to pay a better price for
Georgia hogs. Be sure to save your
hogs and do not le* the hog eholrea
o r s w?ne plague kill them. I have an
I idea that nitrs are going to be
j hard to vet th’s fal 1 to put in the pea
! nut fio’ds and the bean fields. If
vou raise them yourself you will
have them but if you hove to buv
j t>iero vou wil' very probably have a
| hard time getting them.
