THOMPSON, manager of the South New Mexico Farmers' as sociation, is campaigning to des troy the grasshoppers In the upper valley. While the hoppers have ap peared in large numbers they are in no such quantity as' over in the Pee8 valley, but they are In sufficiently large numbers to do a great deal of damage. Mr. Thompson has had state entomologist D. E. Merrill, of State College, make a trip over the valley to suggest action to tne urans. " entomologist says if the weeds are cleaned up along the ditches and roads, things will be much Improved. He also suggests the construction and operation of "hopperdozers" for catch ine as manv errasshODDers as possible. Mr. Merrill's letter to Mr. Thompson, following his visit to the upper val ley, says: On my visit to your region this week I found that you had plenty of grass hoppers that are native with you, but there was no .sign of a scourge. You will doubtless have trouble in places with the grasshoppers on the later crops as you did last year and sev eral years previous, if you do not use some of the means at your command to thin out their ranks now before they have reached the adult stage. When they have come to the adult, winged stage they are very difficult to treat and they "are large and eat more and will have eaten for a longer time even- as young ones. By reducing their numbers now you may avoid any ap preciable damage to your crops. Then look out for the p'reventive. cultural treatment to reduce their numbers in succeeding years. Worse Where Weeds. The hoppers, so far as 1 could see through the region, are worse along fields that have lots of creeds along the borders and along ditches that are badly grown to weeds. They were plentiful along roadsides where there were weeds for protection. Attention to such places makes for a better ap pearing farm and countryside and les sens the number of brceiing places. Stir up the soil in these places in the winter or spring as well as keep the weeds down In the summer. The sum mer weeds furnish resting places for the hoppers and also protection from some of their bird enemies that would THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HAIR PROMISES AND HAIR RESULTS .Promises won't overcome hair trou Mt The manufacturers of Newbro's H rj'icide promise nothing which Is not justified by an intelligent use of this preparation.

Monday night the school board launched a movement to screen-El Paso from the ntes. If the suggestion of the board is carried out, provided it Is within the province of the city coun I. owners and landlords with dwell ing's to rent will be compelled to have them properly screened. That this suggestion be made to the city coun cil, was made by J. E. Morgan, after the reading of a letter from alderman W. & Clayton. The alderman in his letter dwelt on the necessity for clean liness, carrying it out by the proper screening of houses. Alderman Clay ton stated that the greatest problem existed in Chihuahuita, and suggested that the children of that section be taught the necessity of cleanliness, in lectures to be given by the teachers of the schools. The alderman cited one case in his letter, which he said had bfkn nl,l Mm . , .. , J siclan. It was the case nf a mti nik- Mexican baby who had been left alone. So weak was the child, the alderman said, that it was helpless to resist swarm of flies which infested the home. As a result of the attacs of the files, the alderman said the physician told him that the child's eyesight was permanently lost. The alderman had- something to say about children disturbing the enjoy ment of those who attended the band concerts at Cleveland square. These cuiioren. ne said, were not the chil dren of Chihuahuita. the latter loving music too well. Compulsory education is the propo sition that is now agitating the school board. Dr. E. H. Ervin. president of the board, is strongly in favor of a law of this kind being passed. Com pulsory education is his hobby and he i working to carry it out. The basic principle of the movement is to take voung boys and girls of school age off the street Education Is the solution Of mOSt difficulties 1 lh. ilnntni'. k. lief. Only the present lack of equip ment prevents the board, from carrying out the plan of compulsory education, it was stated. In order that Spanish, considered one of the most important studies, might be taught in the schools, four vacancies have been created. At the beginning- of the fall term Snnn.sh will be taught in all the schools. The classes will include the first and fifth grades. Applicants for this position must not only be able to read and write the language. but must also be able to speak it fluently . The basement of the Lamar school will be repaired and fitted up as a kindergarten and sewing room. The proposition of moving the kindergar ten from the Sunset school to the viias is oeing considered. The Sunset school is located near the Mesa which is equipped with a kindergarten, a.id by moving the equipment to the "Vilas, it is thought, more children will be served. The suggestion of W. A. Burke su perintendent of the manual training department, that a training depart ment, be Installed at the Vilas school, was taken under advisement. The resignation of Miss Mamie Sex ton, principal of the San Jacinto school, was accepted. The schools have $13,585.71 to their credit as shown by the report of school auditor F. E. Sawyer.

More de tailed reports of the storm here In dicate that considerable damage was done to crops in this vicinity, the greatest damage being done to canta loupes and alfalfa. The hail beat the cantaloupes into the ground and knocked the blossoms jj-uni iue vines, wnne in other places the water from the arroyas flooded the cantaloupes and alfalfa fields. There is at the present time consid erable water standing on the Paseo between Las Cruces and the state col lege, and on the Dona Ana road at the north end of the Alameda. A severe electrical storm visited here last evening about & oclock and was accompanied by heavy rainfall. Art Bxhifelt Held.

It has been done in other sections and there is no reason why it can not be done here. It Is only a matter f cin vincing the nople that It is neces sary. You will always have hoppers. There Is no magic way to cbarm them away. Foresight and intelligent ac tion In the matter will do the work necessa ry. One species of hopper you have" In great numbers will be full grown now in a few days. They are beginning to come to the adult stage now. It Is one of the damaging kind. So you will have to act now to get it A second species, in less numbers, will be ma tured about July 1. The third, and largest in numbers and In size of In dividuals and so most damaging, will not be matured till about the middle of July. It Is rtow very small. It Is the one that damages the late- crops most. Get them now before they ma ture ua you nave tnem out of the way. Use Ifenperdezer. You can reduce the numbers without much trouble or expense by using the hopperdozer and the poisoned mix tures. You can not get all of them, but you can get enough to bring their numbers down to normal. But you -will all have to do it .Your association should be able to effect that The hoppers from an uncleared field will soon cover a cleared one and the thrifty man be made to lose the bene fit of his work. You will have to come to this matter of cooperative control sooner or late, and it better be sooner. Use ef the nopperdozer. In a recent notice the experiment station recommended the use of the hopperdozer as a means for getting rid of some of the grasshoppers in fields after a damaging infestation was no ticed. From the nature of the machine it will be seen that it is most effective if used early in the season before the hoppers have reached the adult winged stage. At that time the "nymphs," or young hoppers, can not fly out of the way nor can they jump so far but that they usually strike the machine somewhere. And, once in the liquid in the pan, they are less able than the adults to crawl, swim or jump out Measures for the preventing of the hatching of the eggs are to be first considered. Then watch closely to see if many young hatch out and if they do, use the hopperdozer when they are young; do not wait and watch to see if the hopperdozer will have to be used. Use it and then watch. Every young hopper killed means a saving in what it would eat to grow to maturity, and it stops any risk that more eggs than ever will come from this rising gene ration before being killed, possibly. Ktr FfeM Work. The hopperdozer is manifestly better adapted for field work. Usually small patches may be cleared in ways suited to them in particular. The essential parts of a typical ma chine are the pan. the back stop or shield, and the runners or wheels for transporting the machine. A hopperdozer to be puUed bv hand may be made by taking sheet iron, bet ter if galvanized, and making a pan 8 feet long and one foot wide wit!? front side and ends two inches high and the back turned up one foot Or the back may be made about four in ches high a-d the extra height made by canvas on frame. Triangular end pieces may be put in and the whole rivited and soldered till water tight Runners made of two by four inch timbers or of metal, such as old wagon tire, suould be put under either end and allowed to project about a foot in front of and behirid the pan so it will ride better. The rope for pulling the machine Is fastened to the front end of the runners. It Is better if tho hitch is made so the power is applied at the end. for example, a man or boy at either end. leaving the space directly in irum ot me pan open. A partition get more of them if they could not i n tne middle of the pan keeps the liquid from slopping: too much. If the hoppers are In the older stares, tho one foot back may be too low. In that case, increase the height with a can vas shield as desired for back and ends. A strengthening cleat across the bottom and up the back of the pan helps greatly. A device to scare up the hoppers before the edge of the pan reaches them is made by tying a small rod or pole to the hitch ropes so It will drag parallel to the front of the pan. To Use Xaehlse. To use the machine, pour Into the pan about three-quarters of an inch' of water and add a quart of cheap kerosene. Wet the shield with water and oil. also. Run the machine over the region infested and remove the nuppers or supply liquid as necessary. The cost of the machine ought not to be over 12.00. Cheap oil may be had lor a few cents a gallon, especially if bought in b For use witn horse power the dimen sions may be increased as desired, pro viding heavy enough iron for the pan is used in proportion. The length may Increased toll or l feet and the wWth to from 20 inches to IS inches and the depth to four inches. With this depth it is well to leave a lip on the front edge wide enough to slope down from the top of the front edge to the top of the runners. Three run ners should be used. Low wheels may be used If desired, set under the ends of the runners. Wheels catch less of higher vegetation than do runners if the machine is used in a field of such sort Partitions should ue put in the PiniTery three or four The -V r w maae as nigh as desired, but usually about two feet high is su flcient for back and ends when the hoppers are not yet fully grown.

Attor ney general McReynolds disapproves both of the two latest plans for the dissolution of the Union Pacific mer ger which a few days ago were sub mitted by the Union Pacific raiiroaa to the United States court at St. PauL The attorney general will attend the nearing on the plans to be heard on Thursday at St. Paul by circuit judges Sanborn. Hook and Smith and will op pose the adoption of either plan on the ground that each is too vague to meet the requirements of the supreme court's decision ordering the dissolution m. me merger under, the Sherman law. Mr. McReynolds indicated that he would not go before the court with an insistence of a receivership, for the merger, as he said that was a question for the court. If a plan of dissolution of the merger, satisfactory to the court, is not submitted by July l. the supreme court mandate provides for a govern ment receivership to accomplish the dissolution. Mr. McReynolds said he sympathised with the efforts which Robert H. Lovett and.Jther attorneys for the Union Pacific had made to draft a plan of dis integration but that he could not bring himself to agree to the propositions now before the court.
