Escape in Runaway. ,.
Last Saturday afternoon as A.
K. Stevenson, of one mile north
of Farmington, was enroute to
Farmington the animal he was
driving became frightened at a
passing automobile near the
Stevenson home and ran away,
throwing Mr. Stevenson violent
ly from the buggy into a barbed
wire fence. He sustained sev
eral bad cuts and bruises about
the face, left side and lower
limb. The man who was driv
ing the automobile was a doctor
from St. Louis. He picked up
the injured man an,d took him to
his home and dressed his injur
ips, which we are glad to hear
are not serious though are quite
painful and will cause him to be
laid up for a few days. The
mare was not hurt, but the
buggy was pretty well demol

WHOSE YIELD IS LARGEST?
Every one of our farm readers
in Cape Girardeau county
Girardeau county will
no doubt be interested in the
fact that the Missouri Ruralist
of Kansas City is offering a
beautiful silver cup to the Mis
sourian who has this year grown
the most wheat per acre on a
measured area. They are devot
ing a great deal of attention to
this matter, as this enterprising
publication insists that the entire i
world should know about Mis-j
souri's best wheat grower, and !
that when he is found he will be
the equal if not superior to the
best in any state. We earnestly
urge that every reader of our
paper who has made a good yield
cf wheat this vear or who has a
neighbor with an exceptionally
good yield, take up this matter)
with the Ruralist and win the i
cup. There is no expense at-1
tacheu to entering this contest
and the man who wins it will
confer a distinction upon his
locality which will be of benefit
to all. Similar trophies will
later be offered for the best
yields of corn and alfalfa.
Cape Girardeau County grows
as good wheat and has as good
farmers as any county in Mis
souri, weneeutnat cup; lets
go after it. Write to the Mis
souri Ruralist at Kansas City,
Ceef Was Never So High
GRADE, or so Fine, that it was
too good for our stock. The
choicest that ever fed upon pas
ture land, or drank from a clear
running brook, is what we look
for and get. The cow that was
in such good condition that it
jumped over the moon, would
have been the meat tor us if we
could have lassoed it. When you
want prime, juicy mervts call up
on us and you will get the finest
in the land.

One killed and thirty-one in

afternoon on trestle No. 192,
near Chaonia, about fifty-five

The Hessian Fly.
BY SETH BABCOCK, Dep'l of Atricllure.
Cape Girardeau Slate Normal School.
No wheat raising country is
free from the fly and because
Southeast Missouri suffered but
little from the pest during the
past season does not assure us
that we will not have trouble in
the future. Since nature, by
unfavorable weather conditions,
is lessening the effect of the fly,
we should double our efforts to
control the pest. Man wages a
loosing warfare against all in
sect pests when conditions are
favorable for their growth and
development. The most effec
tive time to strike is when their
own parasites have them down;
then the aid we give is of most
The one effective way of fight
ing Hesiari Fly is by late sow
ing. All the adult flies perish
with the first frost, the pupa or
flaxseed stage being the only
way the insect can pass the win
ter. It naturally follows that if
all volunteer wheat is killed and
no wheat is up before a frost
has gotten rid of the adult
female flies, our wheat will be
free from fly. Drilling should
be delayed until the first or sec
ond week in October, or even
later if the weather remains
The fly travels readily from
one field to another and one
early sown field in a neighbor
hood is enough to infect all the
surrounding fields. Wheat wis
