In spite of the continued dry
weather, J. N. 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

of the short crops," Mr. Fair s.i d.

The Use of Nature Material in The
(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
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.
