The boll weeil Ih now being poison
ed successfully and cheaply by farmers
in Fayette and Caldwell counties. B.
W. Marston, e LToisaans, the man who
.rast used Paris green in this country
to kill the army worm, is leading in the
work. Poisoned cotton has no live
weevil left on it, but there are dead
ones found under it.
Poisoning is simple. Paris green of
guaranteed purity is put in a sack
made of eight ounce osnaburg, and
this sack tied to a stick, is shaken over
the young cotton having weevil on it.
It must be done when the wind is not
blowing. The weevils are hungry for
fresh food after a winter of fasting
and they feed upon the tender "bud"
and the stems of young leaves until
the squares come. These leaf parts
are easily dusted with poison and will
kill the weevils within 24 hours after
eating. We watchst, under a micro
scope, a weevil busily gouging a
trench with his olll. He was working
on a tender leaf stem and bent to the
work most earnestly, succeeding in
cutting a hole one-calf inch long and
one sixteenth deep and wide. Dead
weevils may continue to be found for
four of six days after the cotton has
been properly poisoned. The cotton
should be fleshly poisoned every week
or oftener, until fresh weevils quit
coming to the cotton or the plants be
gin to form squares. When the squares
begin to form, poison will have little or
Apply enough green to show plainly
on the foliage. It should be put on
when no wind is blowing. Poisoning
early in the season means that the
farmers can reduce the winter broods
now coming from their hiding places,
and protect cotton to a large extent.
This adds a new step to the tested
"cultural methods." It may entirely
take the place of picking up squares or
picking off the weevil which has proved
so expensive. Early poisoning will en
able the cotton to mature ahead of the
great swarm of late summer weevils
especially if given thorough midsum
mer cultivation. Paris green may not
be the best poison, but it is certainly
reliable. The entire method is cheap
and farmers can put it into use at
once. On small cotton a half pound of
Paris green per acre Is sufficient This
does not solve the bell weevil- problem,
but it will help to solve it.
With long winters in north Texas
and Paris green to kill a part of the
first crop appearing in spring, we have
a new opportunity to fight the weevils
and run them out ea north Texas.
Cotton growers must wake up to this
neow sitation and make the fight The
United States government appropriat
ed a quarter of a million dollars with
which to fight the weevil. The gov
ernmnent agents re actively at work.
But this great rork can not be done
unless intelligent farmers and business
men give the state and national ex
perts their cordial co-operatica.
When the weevil reaches the Red
river counties it will go straight
the Arkansas and Louisiana
to the Missiseippi cotton valley
lands, accoring to the views of all
experts. Here the cotton crop of toe
south hangs by a thread. The states
east of us are interested in this fight
to crowd back the weevil, from north
Texsa, as much or more than from
east Texas, and will lend us their sup
part. If need be, with the United States
department of agriculture.

brown mate sings happily tnhe genial
sunshine of May. The days and weeks
may pass beforl their young come
forth, but they ,know but one law
that of nature and instinct, and they
lay and sit and are filled with promise
and hope. And, I verily believe that
if we should unwind the centuries of
the past, and turn back to the days
of Gallus Bankiva, the progenitors of
our domestic fowls-of all fowls, we
would find them just now nesting and
laying and adjusting them.elves to
conditions the most favoraile of all
for hatching and brooding their young.
There is use to set eggs now, and
there is use to hatch chickens in May
and in June, for the grass, the bugs,
worms, and the sunshine all combine
in the first warm glow of the year to
inspire growth and thrift.
We need now but to give heed to
the surroundings most congenial to
the mother and her brood, and we may
raise our young stock as successf:"
as in March or April.
We should get out to nature in the
open, and give the chickens freedom
and range. Have heed to the condi
tion of the coop, and keep it well
oiled inside with kerosene, and every
few days dig up a fresh spot for the
hen and little ones to scratch and
cleanse their feathers in, and by this
simple means we will have destroyed
the source of the sleep that some call
the sleep of Death.
Dry feed of cracked grain and mil
let or other small seeds in litter, will
give the little ones something to work
for; and this added to the chase of
the insects and the foraging after
green will make them thrive and grow
until at the round-up in the fall they
will have developed quite as large as
those earlier hatched.
We should not attempt to raise as
many broods now, as we did earlier
in the season, but it is well worth
our while to set some eggs and get
out several late broods that will add
to our season's work in point' of num
bers when the setting time is wholly

Spanish Peants For Horses.
Spanish peanuts make a good feed
for horses as well as cattle and hogs.
During the past winter my horses
were "off feed" and I kept them on a
peanut diet for three weeks, working
them as usual, and they not onif re
gained their normal appetite but im
proved in general appearances. The
Spanish peanut is smal', clings to the
roots of the vine and when planted
not too deep in sandy land are easily
gathered. Pull the vines up and store
in a dry place. When ready to feed
horses, placrvines with clinging pea
nuts in your horse trough and the ani
mals will do the rest Peanuts are
very prolific in Grimes county and
more farmers should raise them.

COULD HEAR IN GERMAN.
A Horse That Was Not Used to In
structions in Any Other
"I bought a horse at an auction not
long ago, said an Eighth avenue butcher
according to the New York Press "and I
thought I had got a bargain until I tried
him a few days; then I concluded that I
had been stuck. The horse was sound,
had good sight, but he would not obey
commands. He would-not stop when the
driver said 'Whoa!' nor start when he said
'Git up!' The animal seemed to be deaf,
and the first chance I got I sold him to a
German baker at a sacrifice.
"Shortly after that I met the baker, and
he shook my hand cordially and expressed
himself as being very much pleased with
the horse I had sold him. I wondered at
this and asked if the horse seemed to have
any difficulty in hearing. To my surprise,
the baker said the norse could hear a
well as any horse he. ever had.
" "Does he stop when you say "Whoa!"
-sad start when you say "Git up?"' I
" 'Oh, no!' exclaimed the baker, 'I don't
ry dot! I talks to him in German!'
'That horse must have belonged to a
German before he was put up at auction.
That is the only way I can account for his

Catarrh of the Stomach is Generally
to Produce Artificial Dips
tion is Generally Taken,
Hence Pepsin Pancreatin and a Host
of other Digstive Remedies
Have Been Invented.
These Remedies Do Not Reach the
Seat of the Difficulty Which
Is Really Catarrb,
L- U. S. Senator M. C. Butler from
South Carolina, was Senator from
that state for two terms. In a re
cent letter to The Peruna Medicine.Co.,
from Washington, D. C., says:
"*Icra recommend Peruna for dys
pepsia and stomach trouble. I have
been using your medicine for a short
period and I feel very much relieved.
it Is indeed a wonderful medicine bhe
sides a good tonic. ".--M. C. Butler.
The only rational way to cure dyspep
sis is to remove the catarrh. Peruna
cures catarrh. Peruna does notproduce
artificial digestion. It curescatarrh and
leavesthe stomach to perform digestion
in a natural way. This is vastly better
and safer than resorting to artiflcial
methods or narcotics.
Peruna has cured more eases of dys
pepsis than all other remedies con
bined, simply because it cures catarrh
wherever located. If catarrh islocated
in the head, Peruna cures it. If catarrh
has fastened itself in the throat or
bronchial tubes, Pqruna curesit. When
catarrh becomes settled in the stomach,
Peruna cures it, as well in this location
as in any other.
Peruna is not simply a remedy for
dyspepesi. Pernna is a catarrh remedy.
Peruna cures dyspepsia because it
generally dependent upon catarrh.

Of Todurrin, Disfigurinl
Every child born into the
world with an inherited or
early developed tepdency to
torturing, disfiguring humors
of the Skin and Scalp, becomes
an object of the most tender
solicitude, not only because of
its suffering, but because of the
dreadful fear that the disfigu
ration is to be lifelong and mar
its future happiness and pros
perity. Hence it becomes the
duty of mothers of such afflict
ed children to acquaint them
selves with the best, the
purest, and most effective
treatment available, viz.: the
CUTICURA Treatment, con
sisting of warm baths with
CUTICURA Soap, and gentle
anointings with CUTICURA
