Are you making cretonne doilies?
If not, then you are not in the fashion
at all, as they are quite the rage at
present. One department store sells
cretonne jiixt fur that purpose and
it is possible to cut it so that a bunch
of dainty flowers will be in the center

rrotehed with mercerized thread in
a very simple pattern and almost
before you know it you have a set
of pretty breakfast cloilies.

It seems that as long as the present
Mayor and Council continue to raise
chickens and permit them to feed on
and tear up other peoples' property,
the ladies of the Civic Improvement
Society will receive little success with
their petiton to have an ordinance
passed that will oblige the chicken
raisers to keep the disturbing clement
at home. What's the use of having a
"city beautiful," if everyone cannot
work in harmony to make it so?
The Civic Improvement Association
is surely doing it's part to help the
city, and while the city itself has
responded in many ways it must be
amitttcd, still, it is a most discourag
ing fact to see one's efforts continu
ally being torn up, and all because,
since the thoughtless ones will show
no consideration for their neighbors
of their own free will these officials
will not see that they are forced to
keep the "scratchers" within their
Mr. Mayor, and Councilmen, put
yourself in the place of your neigh
bor, who is paying for a lack of
brotherly love and consideration,
wouldn't you be up in arms? would
you do everything within reason to
have the continued offence stopped?
I wager to say you would indeed.
Why not then at your next meeting
get together, ond use your influence to
better these conditions?

Because of the shortage of clover
this year, a greater acreage of cow
peas will be put out than usual. The
cowpea is well suited to take the
place of clover and because of its
nitrogen gathering power improves
soil and makes hay that is rich in
protein. In fact, it ranks with clover
and alfalfa. The cowpeas is a south
ern plant, is very sensitive to frost,
and will not thrive in a cold wet soil.
Cowpeas should not be planted until
the soil is thoroughly warm. This
is rarely before May 15th; usually
June 1st to 15th is the most satis
factory time for seeding. Cowpeas
will grow on land where alfalfa will
not grow at all and where clover
does not thrive. Acid soils are not
favorable to its growth but cowpeas
will often make a fair crop on thin
land that shows a decidedly acid
That the cowpeas is a soil builder
is unquestioned, and, because of its
nitrogen gathering bacteria leaves
the soil loose and friable. On rolling
lands where the crops have been
taken off and nothing returned, loss
from washing has sometimes occurred.
This may be averted either by pas
turing off the crop, or by giving the
soil a dressing of manure, or even
straw, in fact, anything to hold it.
Where cowpeas are grown continually
on rolling land and everything taken
off and nothing returned, washing
is the inevitable results. The result
would be the same with any culti
vated crop if the soil was not pro
perly taken core of.
For this Ecction the New Era
(Blucx) pea, and the Whippoorwill
are the most popular and best known;
often the mixture of the two is used.
The New Era is an early variety
that matures in from 75 to 100 days.
It is more erect and vines less than
the Whippoorwill, which mature some
what later. There are a number of
other varieties, but they are not
generally grown here.
Cowpeas make excellent hay hay
that will take the pluee of clover,
pound for pound, and this will no
doubt be the principal reason for
seeding this year. Cowpeas may be
profitably grown in mixtures. Cow-
lea" in corn are very satisfactory
They may either be dropped in the
I. ill at planting time or brn.-olcaMcd
before the last cultivation. Both
method have given goo-1 satisfac
tion, but the former is usually pre
ferrable. Corn nnd cowpea
make an ideal hog pasture because
the constitute a balanced inlioii.
Lambs al" do well on such forage
and do not molest the cars of corn.
This mixture is also satisfactory for
ensilage and is often used for that
Cowpeas and Sorghum.
In some sections of tne south this
mixture is popular. The two kinds
of seed should be well mixed and
sowed on well prepared land with
a grain drill. One bushel of peas
and half bushel of sorghum seed are
usually sown on one acre. Amber is
the variety of sorghum generally
When cowpeas are drilled alone
5 peeks of seed is the amount usually
put on one acre; if drilled in rows
21-30 inches apart and cultivated
half bushel to 3 pecks is sufficient.
Larger yields of hay have been ob
tained by cultivating but the increased
cost has made a difference in favor
of thicker seeding nnd no cultivation.
Cowpeas, will do better if sowed in
a well prepared seed bed after all
danger of frost is passed.
The man who has no clover this
year cannot do better than to plant
a few acres of peas.

Washington, June 28. That gov

later would announce its views as to
the time to be consumed In argument.
