Imubtless a great deal of the so

Throughout the state many counties
have boys' corn and pig clubs. It
if interesting to read of the fine
corn and the good hogs these young
farmer* are placing on exhibition and
the profits they reap from their ef
forts are an incentive to greater ef
forts and should stimulate other
toys to become club members. The
Dttroc Jerseys placed on exhibition
by the boys in Waxahaehie during
tlie past few days are superior to the
swine exhibited at the Dallas fair
thirty years ago and would be
favorably noticed there now.
The canned fruits, vegetables, pre
serves, marmalades and pickles plac
ed on exhibit by the bright faced
lasses of the county are as fine as
one could wish to see.
Last but not least in importance
lr. the county farm demonstrator
v.ho is furnished instructions by tlie
Washington department of agricul
ture and will assist any farmer who
desires to get out tint deep ruts of]
tludltkm. and become a real live di
versify, enterpi ring producer of
any and all crops adapted to onr
soil. Good finn ing in the result of
the Investment of five parts of eom
iilon sense and five parts industry,
but our farmers have drifted into a
one crop practice and they probabo
need to have the necessity of experi

direct way than homes to them

matter. If i have been correctly in

The corn and pig club boys will
grow up and become the farmers of a

a more valuable training than all the

Ho endeth the "day of rest."
No wonder “ome of the papers
are too exhausted to get out a Mon-j
day edition and the Art Museum
hasn't the strength to open its doors.
When you do pry your way into the
museum on Tuesday, however, you j
feel there is not much loss to art by
its Monday closing.
At present there is a modernest
exhibition of the works of Zito Clt
tadiui in an annex of the museum.
New York. I am sure, would go quite
mad about Zito. Most anyone would
have to to appreciate him.
One tasty little bit of his con-j
servulively dubbed "A Study” seems i
a hectic and sanguinary portrayal |
of an inflamed tonsil. Several small
canvases, however, of sea and rocks
in gorgeous coloring look, at a safe
distance, strangely like what they
are intended for.
Art may be long but Buenos Aires
isn’t exactly long on ait. That is art
as confined to painting.
Architecturally Buenos Aires ranks
well and as to its monuments and
groups of statuary, they put those
sculped monstrosities in most ol our1
North American cities, especially
New York, to shame. To be sure
like everything else in Buenos Aires
whether it be to eat or drink or to
wear the sculptured art is imported
but even so good taste lias been
shown in its selection.

And while on the subject of the

this idea. The real Argentine Tan
go is danced only by the primitve

the low dance halls and dives within
the city. No cultured Argentine
lady or gentleman could or would
do this dance in its true elemental
slate. The Argentine Tango that
we know was evolved in Palis and
owes little save its title to the orig
inal native dance. Because of the
associations of the name when the
