One beautiful summer's clay a Grasshopper was hopping mer
rily about, singing with joy as if he had not a care in the world.
Soon an Ant passed that way, dragging along with great ef
fort a large crumb of bread he had found by the wayside.
*"My friend, wait awhile," said the Grasshopper, "stop and
chat with me. What is the use of working all the time when you
* might be enjoying yourself in the sun ?"
"I am storing up food for the winter," replied the thrifty Ant.
"You had better be doing the same."
"Oh, I'll worry about winter when it comes," laughed the
'foolish Giasshopper, "there is an abundance of food here at pre
sent." But the Ant continued on its way to the nest.
After a while winter came and the thoughtless Grasshopper
soon began to suffer tho pangs of hunger. He recalled that the
ants had accumulated great stores of food and called upon them to
share their stores with him, but they would not listen.

CATTS WINS CASE
Charges of Accepting Bribe Is Ois
Tern Applied to Affair by Ex
Chief Executive of Florida.
Lake Butler, Fla., May 15.
Charges of accepting a bribe during
his term of office against former
Governor Sidney J. Catts, of Flor
ida, contained in a grand jury indict
ment returned more than a year ago,
were dismissed here today when Cir
cuit Judge Long sustained a defense
motion that the indictment be quash
Today's action cleared the former
executive of any malfeasance in of
fice growing out of his alleged ac
ceptance of money to influence his
vote.for the pardon of a life term con
vict, J. J. Coleman, while governor he
was ex-offlico chairman of the pardon
Still pending against him is a fed
eral indictment charging peonage in
that he is alleged to have held two
negroes on his farm in West Florida
to work out a debt.
The former Governor apepared
here today for the second time to
stand trial on the acceptance of a
bribe charge. Once before when the
case was called up a continuance was
granted on motion of the prosecution.
The indictment was returned at
Starke, seat of Bradford County,
wvherein is located the State peni
tentiary, in the spring of 1921. It
charged specifically that the former
governor had accepted $700 in the
matter of Coleman's pardon. At this
time the Governor's offigial actions
were the subject of a legislative in
vestigation. Subsequently, the legis
lative committee made public its re
port which, however, contained only
a resume of the testimony of witness
At the time the indictment was
returned the Governor was out of
the State, andl Bradford County of
ficials charged with serving the
warrant for his arrest; professed
not to know of his whereabouts.
Within a few clays the federal indict
ment charging peonage was retur-ned
at Pensacola and on this indictment
Mr. Catts was arrested at Albany,
Ga. Hie came back to the State under
bond on that charge and then went to
Starke to give bond on the State
charge. He had not heard of his in
dictment there, ho said.
Subsequently a division of Bradford
county was created which necessitated
the transferring of the case to this
The former governor was highly
elated at today's result, and asserted
that the federal charge would re
sult in his acquittal. He termed the
entire affair as political persecution.

FERTILIZER HELPS TO .
BEAT THE BOLL WEEVIL,
"If you are going to fight the boll
weevil for the cotton crop, have a
crop worth fighting for."
In certain sections where the use
of commercial fertilizer is necessary
to produce a full crop, many farmers
are disposed to figure that if they
poison they cannot afford the addition
al cost of fertilizer. But, say the boll
weevil specialists, "if you are going
to poison, you can't afford not to fer
tilize. "If you fertilize, you can't
afford not to poison." One is an in
surance policy to protect the other.
,At least, that is the Government view
of the matter, based on years of ex
perimentation by specialists of the
Department of Agriculture at the
Delta Laborartory, Tallulah, La., and
observations covering the entire cot
"There is a tendency," says B. R.
Coad, director of the laboratory, "to
expect the impossible of poisoning
with calcium arsenate. Now, calcium
arsenate dust is the one thing, as far
as anybody knows, that will control
the boll weevil, but that is it does.
It will not produce any more cotton
than the ground would produce if
there were no boll weevils. A' great
many farmers, however, get the idea
that if they must bear the expense
of poisoning they can not afford to
buy fertilizer. Others get the idea if
they buy fertilizer they can't afford
the expense of poisoning. Both class
es of farmers throw money away.
Highly fertilized ground will, of
course, grow more cotton sometimes
than the weevils can destroy. If it
is exceptionally good ground, it may
grow so much that the owner does
not notice the boll weevil injury and
probably thinks he is making a full
crop. The management of one of the
biggest plantations in the delta
