The development and extension of truck.farming in the Atlantic coast states has been coincident with the development of transporattlon facili ties throughout that section. The phenomenal growth of the great con suming centers of thei country has stimulated a curresponding growth and extension of the food producing territory. eslpeclally of that capable of producing perishable truck crops. Transportation facilities, together with cheap labor and cheap lands at the south, have made it possible to produce products out of season at the north in competition with greenhouse products.

MODERN METHODS OF SHEEP SHEARING GREAT HELP .Many Improvements Over Old Days When Wool Was Gath. ered by Allowing Animals to Rub and Squeeze Each Other. The earliest method of securing the wool was to drive the sheep quickly through a narrow passage, and the squeezing and rubbing of one against another loosened and detached the wool. Later, an "improved" plan was adopted, which, in our ears, sounds somewhat inhumane, although, as a matter of fact, if done at the right time, there would probably be noth ing painful or %e ere about it. The sheep were caught, and the wool was pulled from their backs by hand. This practice continued for many hun dreds of years, for although Laban and the other great pastoralists of his time clipped their sheep, Pliny tells us that, in his day, when Rome was in the zenith of her glory, "the sheep are not everywhere shorn, but the custom of pullin...
