to the Boy
You don’t want your youngster
to take all the fun out of his life
trying to look after his clothes.
Rather, what he should have are
clothes that will look after them
selves—Saks Clothes. Strong and
sturdy; full of style—for that
makes the boy manlier and
made to meet all the rough and
tumble that enters into the day
of the wide-awake boy.
We go so far as to guarantee

The little, brenfhlosa night sounds

STRYCHNINE USEFUL
TO DESTROY RABBITS
Good Lively Machine Gun Is
Harmless in Comparison.
Record of 1,000 Animal* to One Ounce
of Poison Made in Gooding Coun
ty, Idaho—Campaign* In o*H
er Weatem State*
(Prepared by the United State* Depart
merit of Agriculture.)
A good lively machine gun Is harm
le*g when compared to strychnine—
at least when It Is used to extermi
nate rabbits. In Lincoln county, Ida
ho, the farmers, working in co-opera
tion with the biological survey, United
States Department of Agriculture, re
port that ooe ounce of the poison killed
400 rabbits. Farmer* In Gooding coun-
U did even better with their poison
and averaged l#6q rabbit# to the
ounce. Minidoka county, conducting
a poison campaign under the direction
of the bureau, killed 40,000 rabbits.
These figures are Illustrative of the
work that has been done under gov
ernment direction In exterminating
rabbits In the western states, where
they are so plentiful as to he extreme
ly destructive to orchards and crops.
I.argo-scale campaigns were organized
in Idaho, Oregon, Washington, Nevada,
Utah and Arizona under the leader
ship of Department of Agriculture rep
resentatives , and along co-operntlvc
lines In which the state government*,
the state extension service, and the
land owners assumed a share of the
responsibility. In addition to the poi
soning methods, great rabbit drive*
were conducted, some of which re
sulted In the killing of ns many ns
10,000 rabbits.
The representative* of the hurenn
of biological survey emphasize the fact
that. In the West, the rabbit Is n seri
ous menace. Rabbit* often devastate
large field* of grain and destroy val
uable orchards and vineyard*. There
are Instances where orchards repre
senting the work and savings of a life
time, and which constitute the sole
support of the owner, have been com
pletely destroyed In a single night by
Jack rabbits.
SUPERIOR BRACE FOR FENCE
Timbers Firmly Mortised In Afford
Great Resistance to Heavy
Strain of Wires.
The constant strain of a wire fence
soon pulls the posts over. This Is es
pecially annoying when the fence ts
built on a curve. Hr re I* a rail brace
that presents great resistance to the
destructive force of the wires. It Is
placed 18 Inches above the surface of
the ground, and la mortised Into the

end. The posts ere wt a rod apart,
and are fl or 7 Inches In diameter, so

will Just Hi In between the poets. The

the jlost# should be (Irmly net In holes
three feet deep. 'Hie woodwork will
then outlast the wire.
CAMPAIGN FOR BETTER SIRES
Mors Than 3,000 Person* Have Agreed
to Breed All Live Stock to Pure
bred Sirs* Only.
The better alres campaign recently
passed the 3,000 Skill rk. This means
that more than 8,000 persons have
agreed In writing to breed all live
slock kept on their forms to pure
ared sire* only. It Is one of the re
sults thus far accomplished hy the
United States Department of Agricul
ture, In co-operation with the stoles
and county agents, in a systematic
campaign begun only 14 months ago
to exterminate scrubs—especially
scrub sires—throughout )the United
Stales. Breeders and owners of all
classes of live stock and poultry are
co-operating In the effort which even
tually will mean a higher qualify av
erage of the country's live stock.
GETTING PRODUCTS TO CITY
Object In Building Roads Should Be
to Enable Farmer to Get Beet
Price* for Crops.
Since the use of public roads Is
primarily In the transportation of
farm products and farm necessities,
the aim In building them should be
to serve the best business of the na
tion, of which more than one-half 1s
farming, and the roads should form a
state system connected with the sys
tems In adjoining states.
This means that the road, Instead
of being from farm to one market,
Is one from many farms to ninny mar
kets. By cheap, quick delivery to
shipping points such system will en
able the farmer to have access to
competitive markets and thus at all
times to secure the heat prices for his
produce.
Inexpensive Palm.
A pretty, Inexpensive palm can be
grown from one or two tecds of a
common dried date. The sod should
be rich and the plant should be welt
watered.
