Fair, whose farm is eighteen miles southwest of Lub bock, will gather an average of a half hale of cotton per acre on one hundred acres of cotton grown on his place this year. Sir. Farr was here Wednesday cn route home from 1'ost City where he secured the heip of ten men in gathering the crop, they I. ft Wed nesil.-iy evening for the farm, and as the entire one hundred acres of crop is open and needing attention he exoects to make regular trips to the gin Mr. Farr farmed for several years in Hell county, and declares that as a cotton producer it is far behind the times us compared with the Plains country, and emphasized the fact that farmers who farm as care fully here as in Central Texas will find the Plains a leader in produc tion records. To raise one-half a bale of cotton this year he wa. compelled to culti vate the growing crop five times, and as it took continual work to ac complish that, his teams were never out of the field, as just as soon us he had finished going over tho crop the first time, he started over it the second time, keeping what moisture that had been in the ground intact, and the plants were kept growing all the tune. Ills first planting was hailed out, and the crop irom which he is gath ering the r"inarkable yield has heeti made absolutely without rain, which is further evidence of the quality of Plains soil and the adaptability of cotton to this section. When asked how much he would have raised this year if more rain had been received, Mr. Fair refused to make any statement as to the approximate yield, other than that '"cotton pickiiig would have lasted far into the spring." "Too much I nn! under cultivation hv one farmer is the cause of .some of the short crops," Mr. Fair s.i d. .

The Use of Nature Material in The Home (By Emma B. Dashley) The little child idiould make na ! mi's acquaintance as a friend and playmate and in so doing he will store up joy and peace for his afler viae. knowledge of nature mak:s a child realize more fully his part in the infinite conception and gievs hun a background of beauty, thru play the child ran first be introduced "i the absorbing world of nature about him. The stringing of nature mateiial in the fall is very fascinating to hildren because of the various col ors and shinies available. Corn and peas, pumpkin and squa-h seeds may be gathered and strung with the join! weed that is found in damp places and can be cut in inch lengths. This reed grows to a height of two feet, and has a him k ai.d white ring between the joints, whiih adds greatly to lis appearance und beauty. Kosc-hips, thornappo s, bitter-sweet and mounlaiu-ash berries are very artistic strung with this joint-weed, comfcinng one, two or three of the red with one of the green. We string them in the fields using No. if Shurpe's needles and No. 30 thread, and let the children wear their c hains home. Milk weed pods give much pleajre, and nmi y tilings can be made from them. By placing two black pin near the thick end of the pod for I'Vi s, we make a hud W ith a beak. Open the slit ah'tig the side, look I;.--ide, and t on m a fish with s ales (ieedsi. I he children take the con tents out, und use the empty pod for a bout, putting un inch slick across the center for a seat, and suilmg it on the water. Out of doors it is fun to blow some of the mm. Is up in the air, and try to keep them up. Mothers can make beautiful fluffy pillows from the down of the milk weed by taking off the weds and putting the down in a case. Du this before the down becomes too dry, or it will fly all about. The pillows are very useful, us they are soft and fluffy. F.ven the brown needs may be utilized if saved. In the winter, the children und eve n the older peo ple can play with them in masses on the table, making circles, squares, wreaths unci other fiut pic tures.
