A recent trip up the Red river
valley showed that sonme of the
planters were preparing to mitake
a determined fight against the
tbll weevils during the coming
season. Not only were the cot
toli stalks being gathered and
burned, but on several plkces the
land was li.ing plowed. This ik
in accoihdaice % ith the govern
ment ,lemontration work, as the
only effective iltethlotd to su'eees
fully combat the ravages of the
cotton pest. Breaking up tlihe
land a. soon a-: po,.ible after
the crops are gathered, and hlar
rowing it during the winter, deep
plowing. anVI early planting with
select a;nd s.toundi -e,' I.unt w)t'
supplemented itli intensive
methods of cultivati"in, that i..
c.n-itaut workiing. Th'1e idea is to
push the crops to an early
maturity in order to fore-,tall the
ravages of the ho! weevils.
The.e deadly insects become
destiuctive by rea-on of their
propagation, about August. If
the crops are sufticiently matured
before this date, they Ibecome
exempt, in a large mIeasutrte, fronl
the danger of the inriotds of the
weevil. This plan ha.s been sur
ceesfully followed in Texas, and
can be duplicated wherever it is
Those who have followed the
idea oft ntensive cultivation, and
supplemented it with the early
use of paris green. have made
good crops during the past. It
is noted that the same planters
are now pu-hing their woIk for
the coming season. If practical
knowledge of the benefits of this
style of cultivation and the
experience gained from anll actual
test, had not demonstrated its
efficiency. they wotuld not have
repeated the experiment.
There is a foil to the devasta
tions of the weevil, and the
results from demonstration work,
are the most effective to achieve
this end. At least this method is
urged as the best now adopted.
and can be verified by a test
experiment on a few acres.

Calamity howlers are the worst
class of people on earth. They
make themselves miserable and
all their neighbors uncomfort
able. Not sati-fied with the
blessings that surround them,
tbey want more than earth can
afford. If they would energet
ically strive to help themselves
they would feel better and do
better. They still, howl and
growl and yell for their neighbor.s
to help them. They are like the
teamster with a loaded wagon
which bogged down, and then
stood and called on the gods to
help him. Hercules came to his
aid and pushed the wagon out of
the mud. He taught the lessdb
that the gods help those who help
themselves. This age is not one
of disinterested kindness and
charity unless the recipient of
gifts shows the need of aid. A
strenuous age demands a stren
uous life, in order to succeed.
Be thankful for gifts, andi
exhibit a spirit to deserve them.
Self help is the best help, and
snarling and growling will not
mend the broken fences.

A Happy Community.
It is an indisputable fact that
there is more unusual quietude in
Winnfiedld over the political
campaign than in any other town
of the same proportions in the
State" While miany localities are
at fever heat and plunged into
warm discussions. here there is
neither strife not display of bitter
antagonisms. There may be a
number of eaunies for this happy
condition of aff.tirs.
The people are intelligent and
earnest readers of current events.
Miayhap each has Intelligently
considered the situation and made
up his mind how to ca:st his ballot.
Certain is it that there is little
he.itancv in dcl.: uitng a prefer
ance. Not I~.s is it a fact that
this never causes any heat"ed argu
iment. It is received with a laugh
able comment and good natured
t)banter to :'show hands."
.Again the reign of peace might
be attributed to the studied ab
sence of political aspirants to dis
cuss the leading issues of the
camp:ugn. Thus far Winnfield
can boast of only one open air
gathering, and the quiet presence
of the "'gutu shoe" candidates
who unannounced came and as
quietly folded their tents and stole
away, like the Arabs of the desert.
Aiotlher, and most cogent rea
son of all, is the earnest and un
ceasing effort of the people to
push the car of progress ever for
ward, for there seems no halt in
the spirit of development. It is
a patent fact that when a man or
a community is engrossed in its
own affails, there lis no time to
give lteed to the business of oth
ers. particularly when the affairs
and concern of "the others" have
been satisfactorily settled and
Dr. E. W. Neal, from Vivian,
Caddo Parish, will lecture at the
parish union which convenes here
in Winnfield on December 17,
at 10 a. m. Hle will deliver a
public lecture at the court house
at 7 p. in. the same day.
We want every business and
professional man in town to hear
hmimn, he is an orator and if you
miss his speech you will always
regret it. Come one and all.
LLdies as well as men are invited
to hear this great man.
