The 148,000 teachers and the 7,000,- 1
00 pupils of the South are being urg:d
by their educational and agriculturil
leaders to assemble 3,000,000 farners,
their families and friends, in the
9,000 school houses on November 27
or an hour, in order to survey and *

or the farmers of the nation have this
rear produced ten billion dollars' 1
vorth of crops to feed and clothe
tearly 100,000,000 people here, with a
urplus fcr other nations.
Knapp Agricultural Day is the offi-;
:ial designation. The South wishes to
lonor the memory of Dr. S. A. Knapp .
s the founder of the Demonstration
vork and the Boys' and Girls' clubs, i
"his is fitting, because 100,000 demonJ
trators are making larger crops on ^
heir farms and Corn Club boys are j
ttracting world-wide attention by j
.rowing mere than 225 bushels on one j
ere at low cost. The indications are ; ,
hat several of the 75,000 boys will i j
his year break all records. It is tit- f
ing, because 25,000 girls, in the harest
season, are filling pantries with ,
t'hnipcnmp food and selling the sur
ilns. rt is a duty, because Dr. Knapp i (
aught a new method in agriculture
nd the lessons must be more widely ,
mpressed and unfailingly transmitted.
Representatives of England, Russia,

New York, Nov. 3.?Sunday was a
day of comparative quiet in the presidential
campaign camps. President
Taft, remaining in New York on his
j way from Utica to Cincinnati, con'
ferred with National Chairman Hilles,
State Chairman William Barnes, Jr.,
and other political advisers; Col.
; Roosevelt had George W. Perkins and
j ethers of his political aides at Oyster
j Bay, and Gov. Wilson, resting at nis
j home in Princeton, was in telephonic
j communication with his headquarters
in New Yorl:.
| The day -brought forth no changes
i in plans and no important developments
in the wind-up of the bitter fight
..nat is to terminate with Tuesday's
election. Forecasts issued by Senator
Dixon, Progressive chairman, and William
F. McCombs, Democratic chairman,
reiterated their predictions of
Saturday as to the ouecome. President
Taft and his advisers spent some
time on a statement issued before
President Taft left for Cincinnati.
Managers Are Hopeful.
I TTinrh candidate's manager express
I ed again the conviction held by his
committee in the successful termination
of his fight for election. At the
respective headquarters desks were
cleared up, clerical work brought tc
an. end and preparations made for dismemberment
of the big organizations
tomorrow. Exaggerated reports of the
accident to Gov. Wilso nearly today,

over the telephone that he had
suffered only a slight injury.
The Republican vice presidential
situation occupied much attention in
Republican circles. Re ports were
I current that an attempt was being
I made to sound out Republican sentii
ment throughout the country as to a
satisfactory choice for the place made
vacant by Vice President Sherman's
death. While- the president's intimate
friends disclaimed such an intention,
names of several possibilities were
brought forward by various men prom
inent in Republican circle?.
William Barnes, Jr., on leaving President
Taft's apartments at the Manhattan
hotel made the following statement:
"The Republican, battle has been
carried on in this campaign in the interest
of sane and intelligent government
and straight thinking. The candidate
for vice president to be nominated
by the national committee
ought to be a man who fits in with the
meaning of the party. I think Mr.
John Wannamaker is such a man. 1
hope he will be named at the meeting

clared Col. Roosevelt would carry the
"Approximately 6,000,000 votes will
be cast for Roosevelt and Johnson
out of a total vote of 15,000,000," he
said. "The fatal error in Democratic
estimates is the assumption that Wilson
will poll the Bryan vote of four

program has appealed mightily to the

! "We say that Roosevelt will re ceive *
! at least 60 i>e<r cent of the Taft vote
for four years1 and not less than 15
per cent, of the Bryan vote of that
year. Thus he will carry New Yori

j time he will have at least 297 votes in

266 to elect a president.'

mail directions for killing grasshoppers."
Before attempting to give & remedy
for the grasshopper plague, a few
words in regard to its early stages oL'
growth will not be out of place. la
order for the grasshopper to multiply
to any extent, the soil in which the
eggs are laid must be undisturbed and
there must be an abundance of food
available. The most favorable condition
for grasshopper development
seems to be found in the alfalfa sections
of the west. Where it is possible,
one of the best preventive measures is
to cultivate the ground. The soil need
not be disturbed below the first two
otirfopo frvr rnnsst nf thft
illV/ilCO Ul out Luvv, vi _
eggs are deposited very shallow. We
fully realize that in many cases this
cannot be done so as to completely
destroy the grasshopper, but where.it
is possible to plow and cultivate in the
fall, the number can be greatly decreased.
There are t'vo ways of destroying
the adult or c,rown grasshopper. One
is by the use of the. hopper dozer.
Various forms are in use. but one that
has given verv goort satisfaction can
be built of sheet ircn. ten or twelve
feet long, and about twontv-six inches
wide, with a board across the back,
against which the grasshoppers will
fly and then fall into the bottom of the
( nopper aozer. i uc uuuum vi uui*per
dozer should be made water tight,
bo that a quantity of water may be
poured into it, also a small quantity of
kerosene. The hopper dozer should be
mounted on low skids or small wheels
i ;ud drawn by one or more horses.
The grasshoppers will be collected in
the hopper dozer and killed by coming
j in contact with rhe kerosene. This
! whole structure is rather inexpensive
1 and has proved a very good method of
destroying the grasshopper.
The bureau of entomology of th<*
United States Department of Ast?culture
has recommended a poisonr 1
bait, which is known as the "crrd' >
mixture." and has given very goo 5
results in some sections. The mi>*
j ture is made as fellows:
One-half barrel fresh horse drorI
pings, in which is mixed one poun<1
I each of salt an i pari* green. If th >
j droppings are not f'esh. the silt m
dissolved in water and mixed with th *
manure and poison.
Then this mixture is scattered freely
ahnnt whprp the erasshooDers arf>
abundant. Dr. Fletcher, entomologist
for the Dominion of Canada, cites an
instance where this poison mixture
was scattered around a portion of th->
field, with the result that this portion
stayed sreen while the grasshoppers
seriously Injured other parts of th?
same fie'd. The criddle mixture has
been preferred to other brands of poison
because its effect on other forms
of animal life Li not so serious.
