Italy to come into the war; Ihw he'was
agairt the'eourse followed towards Ru

BEST STORY OF THE DAY
-Mother," said John Worth, after tbev '
had finished their simple noonday meal.,
"1 can see no way out of it except to use
the money that the turkeys bring for the j
)h, John," said his wife in a dijano-1
ointed voice, "I had been planning to use I
that money to buy a phonograph for the
"I tnow that you have, dear." repled I
her husband, "but I have been ,0 the bank
this morning and it is impossible to bor
row money and will be for some time.
The, market L off on everything and I did
not gel anywhere near what I h4 expeeN
ted for the stock that I sold, jou know.
Besides, Lucille's expenses at high school
have been considerable."
Mrs. Worth took a handful of dishes
from the table ami went into the kitchen
to conceal her disappointment. Her hus
band followed her after a few moments
and found her poking the fire in prepar
alion for heating the drhwater. He ca
ressed her gently, then hurried outside tc j
It was late in November in the fall o
1907 and the panic had made money ma
ten especially tight. Mrs. Worlfi, assi
ted by 9-year-old Johnny, had uorkci
with the greatest care all through lb
summer caring for tlie turkcy Lucillt
the oldest of the four children, had finis
ed -country school and was at a lor(
fifteen miles distant attending her fl'S
jear of high school. The .three others
were still going to the little conntn
Mrs. Worth was anxious to maka thr
tome on the farm at the foot of ihe
Ozark, a, attractive for her rlnldren
Like moil children they were fond of
the phonograph, and it had been Mrs
Worths ambition from the time she set
ihc turkey eggs in the spring ti buy a
phonograph with the money. When she
saw that the prospects of raising.a flock
were good, she let little Jphcn, in on the
secret. How Jus eyes had shone!
The secret was too good for Johnny i
la keep, so-he toldlthe rot of the child
ren what was to Le done with the "tur
key money." All the children, even Lu-
eileaway at high school, looked forward
to Christmas and the joy that u to be
brought into the home by lite phono
Mrs. Worth's ees were dimmed by
leati as she waihed the dishes; still, as
she looked through the window that
Ltleak afternoon and saw her husbantTTn
bis shabby, coat as l.n scooped oTf tlie
load cf corn that he had just brought
in from the field, slirTknevr tliat he would
never have asked her 10 make the sacrl
(ice iMie could have devised any other
way to secure the money he must have
Villi 'which to pay Ids taxes.
-The afternoon wore erf and at 4:30
o'clock the children came from school
It was Mrs. Worth's custom to take a
few minutes off from her work when thev
came home each day to sit down and
greet them. This day her heart was
heavy., but she concealed it as best she
could. Alter each of the children had
been to the pantry to get somethirg ir
eat, Mrs Worth told them that it was
necessary for papa to use the money that
the'tirrkeys wovrld bring to pay the taxes
with that sear.
Charley, the oldest boy, looked v en
solemn, little Susie began to cry and
Jchnny's eyes filled with tears bat h'
went on out to help hi, father and oHe
brother with the chores. Later in th
evening, he stopped after putting an arm
fnl of wood into tlie woodbox in lb
kitchen, slipped up to his mvther n
his arms about her reck and said: It

"The postoftce department is erne"
ing an excentionallv heaw rrs. of

there is the danger of havin the ?

is useless' to pack the goods in 9im"
pasteboard boxes for they are ant to h

been due to poor packing. We luv

Chinch bugs and the Hessian fly are
causing much trouble to farmers in Mis.
souri, according to Mj. BurrilL The farm,
ers did not realize last harvest season that
the cliinch bugs were in their fields un-
Ul they had begun to harvest. To pre-
rant and. to exterminate as nearly as
possible the pests for the following year
Mr. Uurrul is recommending that the
farmers get bjsy this fall or winter a-i)
id thtir fields of the pest at once. 1
The acvke he gives is this: TJ.at hi
' fan- fields, be ause if yot.r wheat field". 1
.-e infested with the Ira; nn-v as swil
- the wheat is cat they will migrale to
he corn field and ruin it. The wa 10
event this is to trap the bugs befor-'
it wheat iipens r cvci before it has'
ten come through d e groend.
A plan sometimes used Ly tie farm
ts is this. A ditch is made all around
ibe entire field with a plow. This ditch
is filled with, liquid gas, tar or a heavy
'oad oil. Holes are' dug from twelve to
ijhrecn inches deep at Intervals along
hi ditch from twentr to thirty fee
a f cn the e ;e of ta- !hi Hie bn s
1 not cress is cr lUe to inil t-av !
i-g it and fall i-rto the viles anJ Cv e
T can be killed by p-m-inj ke mt
to the holes.
Another plan somsicus s l-
.en c-ce is rnafcle to trap ;h-m b the
r -e me -od a deep f arrow is flowed
around the field and a log is dragged
back, and lorth, across the furrow until a
sty ditch is foimed from which the
1 -fes cannot escape once they have got-
en into it.
These rJkns for getting the bug ate
cry good bat for this time of the year
such plans will not be of much good,
hey appl 1 .only to the spring. In the
-ly s ins and also in the winter the
s d 'e in grass rubbish and dead '
lves. and the best wav 10 get them!
rw is by barring all of this rubbish in I
"d around fields. Those that are hid
rs in other places will be killed by the!
"1 1 of the winter. Also oce must not
iink that the b-Jgs aln-a;s hide near the
-elds'to whkh they do damige. Same
'"rats' they ma? be found quite a distance
ora -the EeWs. The winter, Mr. Bar.

rill says, the farmers should barn all
of the rubbish around their fields and aU
the' tufted grasses that can be found in
or near the fie'ds and they will not have
muclt trouble with the chinch bug in the
It is also well, he says, to put up bar
riers and spray in the spring to prevent
the bugs from getting into those"iiM
that do not have them already. Oil
sprays are used mostly for these 0IWf,
