Not illustrated. 1906 edition. Excerpt: ...of the State. We have made some progress in the northern part of our State in eradicating the cattle tick (Boophilus an/rmlatus.) Our State gives a small sum for this purpose, and we employ four inspectors during the spring and summer months to look after the work. We need more effective aid from the United States Government in the progress of this ' work. The Department has sent out through the weekly press six columns of printed matter, which has been published in about one hundred and eighty-five county papers. This printed matter has not been sent out regularly every month, but from time to time, as in his judgment the Commissioner thought best. This matter costs the Department about $185.00 per issue. During the past year we issued five or six thousand books, prepared by Prof. J. T. Derry, Historian and Statistician, and R. F. Wright, Assistant Commissioner, covering the resources and advantages of our State, most of which have been distributed. We have also issued and distributed about twenty-four thousand copies of the commercial fertilizer Bulletin No. 42cents for season of 1904-'05. This bulletin was in the main prepared by our efficient State Chemist, Prof. John McCandless. Within its two hundred pages are found the tables and analyses of commercial fertilizers sold in the State of Georgia during the season of 1904-'05, and we note with pleasure that these tables show an improvement in the quality of fertilizers sold in this State, and they further show that our farmers. are fast learning the benefits accruing to them by the use of frtilizers of a high grade. In this bulletin will be found, also, the laws, rules and regulations governing the manufacture and sale of fertilizers; letters on agricultural chemistryshow more
