August Lecourt claims the unique distinction of being the first man to successfully carry on the industry outside of the stipulated season lim it. A visit to his silk farm on No veryber 20, revealed a healthy and ravenous swarm of silk worms greed ily devouring leaves gathered from trees planted in April. The silk worm season, authorities say, ex tends from February 15 to October 15. Accordina to Mr. Lecourt his first investment was in 300 trees, pur chased from the nursery of Dr. Osi gian. When planted the trees were two feet high; within a year they were 15 feet high. The trees leave profusely, Mr. Lecourt claims, bear ing leaves as large as 10 by 12 inches. Mr. Lecourt declares that *a heavy crop of leaves continues from April to October, the weather seemingly not affecting their yield. A room in Mr. Lecourt's residence has been modeled after a nursery for silk worms. Hd has constructed several tiers of shelves, wherein the worms feed unceasingly upon the tresh mulberry leaves. . After a meal lasting from 25 to 30 (lays they begin to spin the much desired silk, a quantity of which Mr. Le court has already retailed at a high ly satisfactory price. Mr. Lecourt is a silk worm en thusiast and declares that his chosen work is both fascinating and re munerative. An elaborate pro cess is employed in selecting the silk, after the cocoon has been spun. Those which appear to be of the fin est texture and finish are steamed to prevent the destroying of the fibre by the moth, which comes to life approximately 15 days after the cocoon is woven. It is necessary, however, to keep the supply of eggs in undiminshed volume. Numbers of the cocoons are allowed to mature. The moths furnish the eggs for numberless other worms. Female moths lay from 300 to 800 eggs in their period of existence. Every member of Mr. Lecourt's family have become imbued with the silk worm fever, and all assist in the operations. With results coming in from his efforts ,he declared, he contemplates increasing the capacity of his nursery. The volume of his crop next year, he hopes, will more than double his 1919 crop.

Panama Was Outcast City. Panama Is the oldest city on this continent inhabited by white men, and is the great curiosity shop of America, George A. Miller writes, in his book, "Prowling About Panama." Some of the cities of the canal zone are among the cleanest and healthiest on earth, but laziness, shiftlessness and Inef Actency are in full sway in Panama. Economic waste meets the prowler at every step. Probably Panamanians had less op portunities than cltizens of some of the other cities to learn advancement Ia these Ines, due to the fact that they were on the defense against the encroachment of conquerors for past centuries, its author says. Not until the present republic was set up, under the protection of the United States, was the city say better than an outcast of the world. i Kitchen cl White Enm Bedroom 0i ullp,'rior Quality 9Qilt ',ol Mixture Bl.nkl i. ill W\ool Blanket, .. t 1littinR Art Squares "i1 'ongoleumi Art Squares .. t C'?rex Art Squares i i ussols Art Squares .
