A systematic organization of the
homesteaders along the Oklahoma
Texas lxirder has lieen lu progress
(luring the past three years looking t.
the extermination ofthe prairie dog. a
pest that is still a menace to crops and
orchards throughout western Oklaho
ma atid the Texas Panhandle country.
says the St. Louis Glooe-Democrat.
This organization extends from Heaver
countv. Okla.. Uowu into the Texas
Panhandle anil nuiuliers hundreds of
farmers in its membership. In one 1
vicinity last spring three t'ns of poison
was used in this c:imp;wi;n of extermi
nation, and a similar amount will he
fed out this spring in the dog villages.
The campaign has been carried even
Into the Texas and Oklahoma legisla
tures, where Litis have been passed
providing for the placing of bounty on
scalps. In the Oklahoma legislature
such a hill was parsed in 11M."i through
the efforts of Hepresentative Tom
Robinson of Greer county. It give)
the township trustees the power to au
thorize a levy by the county commis
sioners, the fund to he used in boun
ties. The oiieratioii of this law, which
is similar t. the Texas statute, lias
been very successful in several por
tions of this locality.
It has been found by the homestead
ers that the ;ily way in which results
can be obtained is to carry on a cam
paign over a considerable territory nt
the same time, as the dogs, if driven
out of one locality, will merely naive
to another "town." The little animals
migrate frequently and often appear
suddenly in large numbers In localities
where thev have not been seeu before
in many years.

time anioug the prairie dog towns,

long speed, to avoid the holes with a
cleverness that was simply marvelous."
John P. Hrauu. a farmer residing
near Mil.onvak-. Ivan., has discovered
that common laundry soap kiJls prairie
dogs with great rapidity. Hrauu had
about ion dogs on his farm, and. al
though he had used traps, catching
about thirty, the rest of the colony be
came wise and would walk around the
traps, ignoring them, one Uog was I
caught in a tra,i and oulv slightly in
.lured, and !liis uuinial l'ra'un took to
the house for his children. It was
placed in a cage, where one day the
children fed It a stnnil piece of laundry
soap. Within five minutes the dog
was dead. This decided P. rutin to ex
periment. n::d. cutting a bar of soap
into small squares, he distributed them
freely throughout the town. The next
day there was not a dog left tj tell the
.tory. He maintains that 1 cents'
worth of soap will clean out the big
gest dog town on earth.
All manner of schemes are tried by
the western farmer, however, to rid
his place of the dogs, only to see them
return, probably in greater numbers, at
a later date, la recent years the de
partment of agriculture at Washing
ton lias been trying to secure a fatal
and contagious malady that will wipe
out the prairie dog and similar pests,
including rabbits and gophers, but thus
far nothing has lieen secure;!. It Is
admitted that traps and poisons will
work for a time and in localities, but
that nothing short of a contagious
tal disease will kill off the pests.

Proves That Parasites Caucc Hair
Nine-tenths of the' diseases ol th"
scalp and hair are caused by parasiiii
germs. The importance of tiiis discov

be overestimated. It explains why ir
difiary hair preparations, even of the
most expensive character fail to cu.v'

they can not kill the dandruff genu.
The only hair preparation in the world
that positively destroys the dandru't
parasites that, burrow up the scalp
into scales called scurf or dandruff, is
Nowbor's Herpicide. In addition to its
destroying the dandruff germ Herpi
