Mr. Park, of Forreston, who made the talk on June corn «aid that he thinned hi· corn from two to three feet in fh· hill. An indoatrial agent for a railroad is an official we never heard of ami! recently. Now nearly all the road· «η Texas have tuch men, and aach of them ii an expert in the land bus iness aud well versed in scientific farming, the raising of fruits and vegetables and other farm products profitable to the roads in freights Ihey have found that it pav* to have these men to travel over their lines and induce people coming to lexas to sertie near their lines and engage in profitable farming. None but the very best talent is employed hv the roads for this work, and these industrial agents in Texas are now takiug a live interest in the organi zation and inaintainauce of the farmers Institute throughout lexas. If the country alone ani line ot railroad fails to make a crop that line suffers its proportion of loss by reabon of such failure. Mr. ataiiley NVatsou. industrial agent of the Houet >n aim Texas Central was at our meeting 011 the 1.5th and ex ρ ι ·% ι η all this t·» us in a plain oractical way. that ail understood.' said he, if your crops fail fr >m any I cause we satfer as much ai d,;. ihfcti why should not the railroad 1 represent be interested in vour wel- I fare·.' You suffer first, said he. and ! we next, and consequently the roads | are furnishing free transportation "ver their lines to all the Kovern inent experts who travel over the state to meet with these farmers in- ' stitutes, organize and instruct the' farmers of | e\.ts on what the.v have learned towaid exterminating the boll weevil and raising cotton in spite of him. Said he: "I wish this meeting success and that you r.Ilis county farmers may continue' prosperous and happy." Air feeler, industrial agent of, .v. envitiir! that on account. t other and pressing busiuess he was unahle to be près-' ent, and expressing his regrets 1 he whole world is stirred up over! the destruction the bull weevil is' doing in Texas. The cotton trills <>f : England, Germany and other coun tries, are troubled over it and the I cotton mills north and .south in this ' countr.·. which have millions of dollars invested in machinery for niakioir cloth, are imur fearful that ι rt e weevil continues to spread as rapidly as they have ia the past, that the day is not far distant when all this machinery, or a part of it at least, both here and in the old world, will be standing idle. Should tae weevil oontinue to spread us rapidly as they have the las' few year.- it will be a calamity, not onlv ' t.. tue people who produce cotton but to the millions employed in the! mills. Cotton furnishes employ-! ment to more people than any other! product of the world, and hereto- ! fore the man who raised it probablv g-'t less out of it than any one o'f ! the many who handled it, but if! present prices continue and the farmer can succeed in raising good I crop» of the staple he will begin to make back what he has been login* 1 ail these years of low prices. 1 hope the good Master w:ll grant our 5"' c lunty farmers prosperity from now on. 1 · Every farmer in EUig couut whether he assigned lund to bë worked under the direction of the government experts or not, should encourage his neighbor who did so These directions will he o.ily such as have been tried in lex is and found successful in producing cotton despite the weevil. .Mr. j ι in Larson, wîio wis raised on Grove Creek, north of Waxa- i hachie, and graduated at the Α Λ ι M College uiaiiy years ego, and who proved himself go apt aud ex pert iti his studies that he was given direction of the big farm at the Col lege, was the next speaker. He said he knew whereof he spoke when he said the best farmers in the United States were iti Ellis county, and said that his old friend, with whom he was raised, Osce Good win, told him that day that the far mers of Ellis county were now pos sessors of the biggest batik ac counts they ever Had, and said he, we have come, not to t»*ach you, but possibly to learn something, and give you our experiences in fighting boll weevils and raising cotton in spite of them. Mr. Carson said the newspaper was the best friend the farmer had in giving the informa tion needed on every subject. He said it had been found by actual test that a boll weevil could not be poisoned, and that some expert mathematician had figured out that one pair of weevils could produce in one season twenty million bugs to eat cotton. The "best way to flfht them, was to pick up the first squares that fall off and burn them, break the land early, harrow aud plow it often during the winter months, use a little fertilizer to make cotton mature and open quickly, and plant early northern seed. Said he planted last year on the experimental farm at the Col lege twenty-five different varieties of northern seed, and that he had found the Hawkins, Shines, Row den, and in fact most all of his northern seed had yielded well, pro ducing from 1400 to 1000 pounds per acre right where the boll weevils were as thick as fleas in a sand bed. Hut this, said he, was done with early norther seed aud fertilizing; could not possibly have been done without the very closest of work. Mr. Marshall, the professor In charge of the stock department at the A. 4 M made a splendid talk. Said he would not breed a cow to anything but a pure high bred bull. It cost no more to feed and care for a thoroughbred animai that was registered, than a scrub, aud when you came to sell them the registered animal told the tale in dollar* and cents. He said that now while cat tie were low was time for the far mer to start him a herd at a very small outlay of money. The time is coming and it is not very far off when cattle will be soaring high again, and If the boll weevil came, which he believed they would, In this county, pure bred cattle and hogs would swell the farmer· bank aeconnt. Messrs. J. W. Bussell, R. K. Br win and J. M. Lancaster made abort talka and to the point. Every one preaent manifested a lively interest in the proceedings. A unanimous vote of tbanka was extended the visiting speakers for their splendid addresses. All who wish the bulletin· issued by the A. à. M.

HOOD I MARTIN S CONFIDENCE IN HYOMEI Not a Penny to be Paid Unless it Cures You of Catarrh. "I'se Hyomei and be cured of ca tarrh," Kay Hood Λ Martin. When a responsible business house like this comes out and advertises that Hyomei will not cost a penny unless it does all that is claimed for it, it show» what remarkable confldeuce they have in this scientific medical treatment. A complete Hyomei outfit consists of a neat inhaler, that can be car ried in the pooket or purse, a medi cine dropper and a bottle of Hyomei, and costs but $1. The inhaler lasts a lifetime and when extra bottles of Hyomei are needed, they can be obtained for j()c. This treatment does away with all disagreeable and dangerous stomach dosing. Kreathed through the Hy omei inhaler for a few minutes four times a day, it impregnates every particle of air taken iuto the air passages aud lungs with germ-kiil ing and health-giving bslismi. in this way It'cures the moat chronic and deep-seated catarrhal diseases of the air passages and respiratory organ·.

Cot. W. G. Herrett, of the Dallas New·, than irbom there are no more far-aighted political prognoaticatora is tbia country, writ!*» his pa*.ar of the Hearst Mid Cleveland sentiment in tha east aaya: "Democrats «ho s if they will go fishing before they will vote for Hearst—and actually many Demo· cratic Congressmen here told me they would do this—awake to the realisation that they are between the Scylla, Hearst, and the Charyb d's, Cleveland. They realise that they are being "pocketed" by the New Yorkers. They argue that Mr. Cleveland is a passive candi date, for they say he would not come out and «rite articles for the newspapers, as he has done in the last week, nbout "imperialism." the Isthmian canal and other live politi cal questions at this time if he were not a candidate. According to their reasoning, if Hearst can go into the convention very strong, the New York democrats, or rather Tam many, which controls matters there now and which is believed to be par tial to Cleveland, will avail itself of the situation to get what it wants. The party throughout the country, because of the triumph of Tam many, is under some sort of pledge to make some New York man the candidate. This does not proceed from gratitude to Tammany, nor is it wholly intended as a compliment to that organization.
