Roswell Honey Production Totals $54.

TINTf MS IS
At Least 100 Men Are En
gaged in Bee Culture
WHEAT ACREAGE AT
Roswell, N. M., Dec 11. The honey J
production of the valley between Ros
well and Carlsbad. Including the Hope
country, brings into the coffers of the
bee men each year $54,000, by a care
ful estimate of Walter Gill, of the Ros
well Seed company, who is familiar
with the bee industry. ,
There are between 5000 and 6000
stands in the valley, and figuring 35,000
bees to the stand, there is quite an
army of the working little fellows, to
taling 21,000,000,000, which produce
each year about 20 cars of honey.
There are at least 100 bee men in this
district. Possibly the largest dealer is
Cteorge K and son, H. C. Dudley, of
Denver. They have stands at Dexter,
South Springs, Hagerman and Loving.
These men usually come down to the
valley in March and stay until August,
when the season is over. They have lit
tle land and products for the bees to
feed on, leaving the little busy bodies to
go to nearby orchards, alfalfa, etc. The
orchard men and others do not object,
as the bee is one of the greatest polin
izers to the fruit The fruit men at
first did not like the idea of so many
bees and did nothing to protect them,
but now they spray at times -when it
is least harmful to the bees.
Industry I Thriving:.
In the last two years the bee industry
has greatly increased. At first the bee
men got good money for the honey. Two
years ago the local market 'was glutted
and the honey remained on the hands
of the producers, as there was not
enough to ship out to the open mar
kets. In the last two years it has be
come different. The markets hunt the
valley honey and they have come Into
their own again. The ruling price is 7c
to 10c extract: lie to 12 l-2c a pound
for section, and bulk comb, 10c.
HAS PERFECT Q3H0N
Specimen of Denia Onion Sent to De
partment of Agriculture Is De
clared Finefrt Kver Sent There.
Alamogordo, X. M., Dec 11. Several
-weeks ago a specimen of onion known
as the Denia onion was sent to H. C
Thompson, assistant horticulturist of
the United States department of agri
culture, by Lieut. Oscar B. Luek. of this
city, for his opinion. The specimen,
which consisted of several onions of
the class, was grown by T. M. Boat
right on his farm about one mile
south of the city. The onion was de
veloped from seed secured about three
years ago from Denia, Spain. In the
process of development Mr. Boatright
has taken ae nearly perfect specimens
each year from which, to grow his
seed, and the result has been practic
ally a perfect onion. Regarding the
specimen, Mr. Thompson has the fol
lowing to say in his communication to
Lieut. Lusk: "In regard to the onions,
I will say that the symmetrical speci
men is the finest Denia onion I have
ever seen with respect to shape, size
and the general external characters. The
top is very small and this is a very de
sirable feature. If you should select
this tjpe of onion for several years 1
fee sure that you could produce a
type as good or better than the Denia
onions imported from Spain. In re
gard to your section of country, I will I
rat- that fTom th rftnArto TfrA Tibvk
been receiving for the past five or six T
years, I am convinced that your terri
tory is one of the best for the pro
duction of Denia onions. The only ques
tion that has been In our minds in con
nection with this is whether or not
the seed could be produced satisfac
torily in your territory. If the bulbs
run anywhere near the shape and size
of the specimen you sent, it seems that
the seed grown in your territory is as
satisfactory as the imported seed.
Mr. Thompson states that he is for
warding an ounce of seed of the Denia
variety with the request that an ex
periment be made and the result for
warded to him at the close of next sea
son. He also states that he will send
a variety of Denia seed he is receive
from California. Mr. Thompson's let
ter says his western trip is to be made
soon and W. R. Eidson, president of
the Commercial club of this city, has
sent him a formal invitation to visit
this city this winter.

It is estimated that at least 100 will be

becoming more popular as a silage

PECOS COTTON IS
NOW BEING GINNED
Second Season's Crop Results Prove
Satisfactory: Staple Is Fine and
"White, Longer Than I'ranl.
Pecos, Tex, Dec 11. The Pecos gin
is running day and night in the gin
ning of the 1918 cotton crop of the
Pecos country. This is practically
the second season that cotton has
been tried in Reeves county, and the
results obtained are most encourag
ing. Not only Is the staple grown
here of a finer, whiter quality, but it
is longer than that grown from the
same seed in the "seasonable" districts,
and brings more per acre, than the
farmer of those sections derives from
the sale of his crop. An average of
a bale to the acre is not at all un
usual for the irrigated farmer. In
fact, two or three men, who took spe
cial pains with their cotton, have pro
duced two bales to the acre
One man near Pecos has given the
long staple, (Sea island or Egyptian
cotton,) a trial this year. He states
that he will grow about 400 pounds

for his crop.
WINTER WHEAT IS
Dalhart, Texas, Dec 11. Winter
wheat is growing rapidly and is be
ing pastured by large herds of cattle
to prevent its loss from the freezes
that are predicted to follow. Many
farmers who have not sown wheat will
sow large areas in the spring, and
tome -will probably sow as soon as the
soil dries sufficiently from recent
Cattlemen are jubilant over the con
dition of the herds and the mildness
of the weather. Grass is said to be
well cured and full of nutrition for
winter grazing, though somewhat
shorter than usual at this season.
Land owners and tenants are plan
ning for large acreages in crops next
year, as it is believed that the moist
ure now in the ground when supple
mented by the usual snow-falls of the
late winter will insure ideal condi
tions for germination and growth.
SONORA WHEAT IS

Douglas, Ariz., Dec. 11. The Amer

twothirds of normal, the mill has se
cured a practical corner on the supply

tinuous run at the rate of j0 barrels
daily for many monthb. according to

Alpine, Texas, Dec 11. Brewester
county farmers are congratulating J.
F. Miles of Sunny Glen ranch, five
miles northwest of Alpine, on the crop
of kafflr corn he has harvested from
his Irrigated land. The crop ,has av
eraged from four to five tons to the
acre, and has paid, $80 to the acre,
which Is equal to the best results
gained on the black land farms in
east Texas. The land on which Mr.
Miles' crop was grown is alluvial,
formed by soil washed down from the
surrounding mountains. It is irrigated
by water diverted from a flood water
creek on the adjoining ranch of Brame
Hillyard, and ditched for over a mile
to irrigate the two ranches. Thus the
flood water from a watershed of over
90 square miles is turned into a val

advice of the government and
other experts with devices of
his own, and hopes to es

RAISE RECORD CROP
Chandler, Ariz., Dec 11. Remark
able agricultural results are being se
cured by a number of Indian school
boys at Sacaton. who are cultivating
ten acres each under tne supervision of
farmer E. -W. Hudson.
In January, 1913, the young Indian
farmers planted oats, and in June they
harvested 75 bushels to the acre. About
July 26 the same soil was planted to
acclimatized Mexican June corn, which
since produced 100 bushels an acre.

Does Mercilessly Driving the Scarlet
' Woman Redound to God's Glory?
Rev. A. W. Elliott, President The Southern Rescue Mission, Atlanta, Ga., has just
completed one of the most interesting, complete and truthful books that ha3 ever
been written upon the social evil; no one can deny this after perusing its pages.
He does not say that these women should be driven hither and thither by a
band of sinful men, for if he did he would advocate a thing that Jesus Himself did
not do. "Jesus was unable to organize a band for the condemning of fallen
women," says Rev. Elliott; "He failed to find a single man that was clean enough
to take a hand in a crusade against unfortunate women." .
"God will not bless those who are not working strictly for His gwry. It cer
tainly cannot be for God's glory to mercilessly hound a sinful woman, 'when sinful
man is to do the hounding," he says.
Mr. Elliott is the founder of The Southern Rescue Mission and has given sir
years to rescue work, having entered more than three thousand houses of ill-fame
and talked face to face with over fifteen thousand women of the underworld,
embracing a territory throughout the United States. He admits that he helped
form the sentiment that resulted in the closing of the restricted district, which
he states has done society a grave injustice because these women have been lit
erally spread all over every section of the various cities. Just recently Elliott
made a tour of the country as far north as Chicago and west to California inves
tigating results of the closing of the districts, for the purpose of writing intelli
gently the final pages of his book "The Cause Of The Social Evil and The
The book gives a full and truthful analysis of the causes of the downfall of
women as well as a sane method of handling them, and should be- read by every
person who is interested in the welfare of the young and who believes in justice
Mr. Elliott is a member of The Baptist Tabernacle, Atlanta, Ga.
