Many varieties of kinds of cut worms may be found doing injury at this seasou of the year. Practically all of the Harden and truck crops are subject to iniurv. This ueut mav be easily controlled, as a rule, by sprinkling poisoned brau mash around the infested plauts late in the even ing. The poisoned bran mash con sists of about one quart of wheat bran mixed with one 1 tablef?poonful of uowdered arsenate of lead or 1 teaspoonful of paris green, and pint of water, to which the juice of an orange or a lemon is added, and 2 tablespoonful of molaBses or syrup Mix the sweetened water, flavored with the orange or lemon juice, in the poisoned wheat bran, after which it is ready for use. This poisoned bait should be scattered about the iufeBted plants late In the evening. If the garden or truck crop is treated in this manner and happens to be near the the range of poultry, it would be ad visable in such case to cultivate the ground the following morning in or der to cover up any particles ol poisoned bran that may be present. Information on control of other garden insects will be found in Ex tension Circular 15 of the University of Missouri College of Agriculture, Columbia, copies of which may had free. material is soft, deep ruts and hotel re formed.

The roller is run back and forth over the rutted part of the road until the material has been loosened. Then a grader is bitched behind the roller and the loose material is shaped to the proper surface. Finally the road is thoroughly rolled, just aa if a new gravel road were being construct ed. Des Arc Items. be Everybody interested in the possibilities of war finds in "The Birth of a Nation" a thrilling association with the issues of to day. The North and the South in internecine struggle ; the strategy of tho Petersburg campaign and of Sherman's march to the sea; Lee's surrender to Grant, and the aftermath of the war in tho reconstruction periods; Petersburg and Appomatox and Ford's Theatre, the foothills of South Carolina and the wild rides of the Ku Klux Klan live again in this 12,000 feet of Superb Motion Picture, which took eight months to produce, and cost 500,000; employed 18,000 people and 3,000 horses. The crisis of 1861-70 all these form a series of political events that enchain tho spectator's interest. Out of the terrible conflict a new nation, united by spiritual as well as geographical ties, was born. - . Never in the history of the moving picture business has there been a photoplay equal to "The Birth of a Nation," and while tho high cost of making this picture has kept it from being played only in the very largest cities, we have been requested by so many to get this picture, if possible, that we have now made arrangements to show the same oil SATURDAY, MAY 4, 1918 You may never have an opportunity again to see this picture or anything that will equal it. There have been many who went hundreds of miles to see this play and we have heard of several making their second trip to see it. Hence don't let the oppor tunity pass by, while it is near you. There has never been a person who has seen this play but says it is one of tho greatest pictures ever made and worth many times what it will cost you.

It cer tainly was a treat for me and my comrades, for candy is a very rare thing where we are located. I never have received a letter but I am going to write and thank you for the candy. I received twenty-nine letters the same time that I received your candy. So you can see that I bave plenty of writing for a few days. But I am al wava irlad to have a word of encour- agement from D.

March 16th, 1918, More Substitutes In Bread. Colomhia, Mo., April SO.-Amend-meuts and additions to the baking roles have been made which will be instrumental in saving greater quan tities of wheat flour, according to an announcement of the United States Food Administration. These changes became effective April 14. The substitute content of all bread and rolls must now be increased from its 20 per cent requirement to 25 per cent. Under the baking rules Issed Feb ruary 1, bread and rolls were the only bakery products that required wheat flour substitutes, unless these prod ucts were called Victory cakes, Vic tory pies, etc. Under the new amend ments and additions, alt bakery prod ucts must contain a certain percent age of wheat flour substitutes. The substitute content hereafter required in the va rious products follow ; Sweet yeast dough gooas, my, per cent; crac kers, 15 per cent; cookies and Ice cream cones, 33a P" cent; cakes, 33,' per cent; pies, 33tf per cent; frleil cakes, 33 i per cent; pas try, 83H fer cent; batter cakes, waf fles, quioit breads such as muffins and Brown bread 66?,' per cent.

Tll nniOUllt will be three billiou dollars. The govern meat reserves the right to allot bonds ud to the full amount of any oversub cription. The interest rate will be ii : ur cBnt, tier annum and will be . , i " - i dated and bear interest from May 9 191S. and mature September 10, 1928. Tim first coudou will ue lor vzv dvs' interest, payable September 15 1918. after which interest will tie payable semi-annually, March 15, and September 15. This arrangement as tn the Interest dates is made in order to avoid having the interest payments on the third series of bonds fan ap proximately upon the same days as t hose of the Liberty Loan. These bonds are not convertible and are not subject to payment on the part of the government prior to maturity. The bonds ot tne ursi ana unrond issue are convertible into i!4 per cent interest-bearing bonds, but carrying the same maturity as tne original issue and are not converti ble into bonds with the same maturl tv as the third issue.
