Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - May 12, 1920, Big Stone Gap, Virginia Farm i of pumpkins nine children and a a shiftless husband on eighty acres & v of land.? to courier. � a United states gets Basque shepherds. One Hundred and fifty basques the first to come to the United states in Tea years have settled in Montana Oregon and Idaho to engage in the care of sheep and raising of grapes. A few basques Are already scattered Over this country and practically All of them Are As Good citizens As can be found. There Are half a Hundred of them in Colorado and they Are the Best sheep herders who Ever came to this country. There is quite an old Colony of them in Nevada and they Are All Rich. The basques come from the northernmost province of Spain. The basques americanize quicker than some of the Peoples of Central and Northern Europe because they Are More eager to learn the English Lan Guage. They Are supposed to be descended from the aboriginal Popula tion of the Region from whence they come and to have less admixture of other blood than any race in All eur rope.?Denver Field and farm. Dairy doings. Don t feed out All the Clover to the cows. Have a Nice lot for the sheep. They will get As much Good out of it As any animal on the farm. The Bull s dam is a. Big Factor in the Success of his progeny. Get a Bull from a Large producing cow and the More such cows in his Pedigree the better. A cow which is gentle and which has never been known to kick will soon learn to kick if she is beaten. She will treat you pretty much As you treat her. The Man who cannot milk without abusing cows has no business in the cow stable. A kick or blow will retard the secretion of milk and May injure the cow for time to come. Small undersized heifers should not be bred too Early. It is cheaper to have vigor and size at a greater expense of feed so As to get the Heifer into the Herd at Twenty four or Twenty seven months. No Farmer would think of putting his family on a ration of bread alone or even bread and potatoes for one Day yet we see Many a Man compelling his dumb helpless animals to eat a single roughage ration for months at a time. Governor Hoard once said on the color question of grass had produced Green butter the Ole Margarine people would be colouring their product Green. It has been said where substitution is possible fair Competition is impossible. The Dairy interests of the country do not object to the Selling of Oleomargar Rine As Ole Margarine it is not jealous of its Competition but colouring the stuff yellow permits fraud does away with Competition. Dairymen Are no trying to annihilate Ole Margarine but the fraud it has a Painter s after Franz Lenbach had painted the portrait of emperor Wil Helm i.
