This la the year to can something!
The amount of fruit and vegetables

A TOUR of China or Jnpan, with Its
opportunity to learn something
at first hand of the wonderful
civilizations ceuturies old, Is an envia-.
ble experience. Hut still more wonder
ful is It to visit those countries not as
a mere tourist, but as nn honored
guest, to be the recipient of gra
cious and unfailing courtesy and hos
pitality, to be entertained by digni
taries and royalty.
That was the experience of Kath;
erlne Stinson. the girl aviator, who
traveled in Japan and China through
out the winter giving exhibition flights
and who arrived in San Antonio to
visit her family before going to Chi
cago to begin another series of exhibi
tion flights In the United States and
Canada. Medals, loving cups, valua
ble gifts from the president of China,
from Japanese royalty, from clubs,
mayors of cities, ministers In the Chi
nese and Japanese cabinets, were
showered upon her, and she was dined
and feted and honored as though she
were a royal visitor.
But the honors have not spoiled her,
as they so frequently spoil others, or
changed her from the charming, unaf
fected young girl that she Is. One can
readily understand that, though her
skill and courage as an aviator
brought great admiration, the courte
sies and attention were largely for her
self. "You always wear a smile," the Jap
anese people said of her, and it is safe
to say that she smiled her way Into
the heart of Japan and China, aero
plane and all.
Surprised by Homage Paid Har.
"I did not believe that there was
ever such wonderful treatment to be
given one anywhere in the world," she
said, "as I received In China and Ja
pan.' The attention 'denoted bo much
thoughtfulness and care. Everywhere
the professional aviators offered as
sistance. There was no professional
jealousy, and they gave me every as
sistance. It was as If the whole peo-
pie wished to show their friendship to
ibe American people through me."
The attentions which she received so
modestly began from the time she
landed In Yokohama and continued
throughout Japan and China, and
many of the friends she had made
came to Yokohama to bid her goodby.
Everywhere she was presented with
gifts, medals and loving cups. The
Jlji Sbimpo, one of tbe large daily pa
pers of Tokyo, presented her with a
handsome medal in gold and enamel
with a map of Japan, surrounded by
exquisite workmanship. The medal
bore the inscription: "To Miss Kath
erlne Stinson, in admiration of her
skill and courage. Presented by Jljl
Sbimpo, Tokyo."
Tbe city of Tokyo presented her with
a magnificent medal attached to the
colors of Japan. The National Aria
tlon Society of Japan also presented
her with a decoration the rising sun
with a deep red stone for the center.
The decoration . presented by the city
of Yokohama was engraved with the
flags of Japan and the United States,
Racatvaa Costly Preaenta.1
The city of Nagoya presented her
with a beautiful medal, the gift being
made by the mayor of tbe city. From
tbe city of Osaka, where the most
beautiful cloisonne is made, she re
ceived an exquisite cloisonne decora
tlon. The Imperial Aero society in
Tokyo presented her with a beautiful
diamond ring, most Ingeniously carved.
In China she was presented with lov
ing cups and various tokens of admira
tion and esteenw Among the gifts was
a check for $3,000 from tbe president
of China, a loving cup from the city of
Peking and innumerable other gifts.

Stale Fair Will Do All In Its
Power to Assist In Greater
Production From Soil
As the foundation of our country's
success is based on agriculture, so is
the foundation of the world's greatest
State Fair firmly fixed upon the de
velopment of the soil and its resources.
Better farming methods, advance
ment over obsolete ideas, extended use
of God given special opportunities of
this imperial commonwealth cannot be
more advantageously taught nor more
quickly learned than through the
agency of the Tennessee State Fair,
Nashville, Sept. 17-22.

est factor for betterment that has ever
been Instituted. Realizing the super
Importance of the farmers' mission in
life rthe production of the very essen
tials that make possible our existence
every effort and every attention has
been employed to place this agricul
tural department well to tbe forefront,
to give It the place of distinction which
It so Justly deserves.
To the farmers of Tennesse. the
management of tbe State Fair of Ten

position of agriculture, secure In the
belief that those for whom It la In

for a greater show this year. It la a

any excuse for not finding anything and
everything wanted at the auto show
at the Tennesse State Fair, Xiahvlfle.
Icpt. 17 to 21
At 1 o'clock we will sell 40 head of two year old Mare Mules. These are
the good kind, being selected in Missouri. They are out of large Percheron
Mares and have the foot and bone, head and ears lhat make high selling

We will buy on the same day Mules 4 years
old and up.
Grow more wheat. Increase
your acreage. Increase your
yield per acre. To do so you
must remember these injunctions:
1. Prepare the seed-bed well.
Study your conditions to see how
this may best be done on your
farm Grains demand a seed
bed firm and compact underneath
and with a puvlerized surface.
- 2. Fill the soil full of fertilizer.
Phosphate, nitrogen; lime, man
ureall these will help you to
get high yields, if you use them
3. Sow good seed.
Good seed means free from
shriveled kernels, free from
weeds, and of a variety that will
yield well on the soil to be used.
4. Treat for smut, if necessa
If you have to seed infected
grain, treat it carefully with
5. Use a grain drill for sow
If you cannot get one, broad
cast Sow I to 1J bushels to the
Sow October 10 to 20.
In the absence of local wheat
of special merit, get pure seed of
one of tho following varieties:
For Average Uplands
Fulcaster (bearded)
Kansas Mortgage Lifter (beard
Poole (bearded)
Mediterranean (bearded)
Currells Prolific (beardless)
Fultz (beardless)
Eor Rich Botlom-lands
Fultzo-Meditorranean (board
less) ' Early May (beardless)
Clean all seed wheat with a
fanning mill to remove small
grains, weed seeds, and smut
balls. Heavy grains yield more
than light ones.
If you have to sow seed infect
ed with sfnut, treat it carefully
by either the bluestone or the
formaldehyde method.
phate applications, such quanti
lies of nitrate of soda, sulphate
of ammonia, lime nitrogen, and
farm yard manure available
should be used as top dressings
especially over thinner areas of
wheat fields.
lime For Wbf al
Fortunately for Tennessee,
limestone is available in many of
its counties and by the use of lo
cal portable and stationary crush
ers lime may be transported to
thousands of acres of wheat by
farm wagons or trucks. The lo
cal crushers will be a great con
server of freight cars if the re
lation of lime to nitrogen supply I
becomes fully appreciated.
No greater service can be giv
en our farmers, in their efforts
to meet the Nation's call for
greatly increased yield of wheat,
than for the counties where lime
obtains, to pTace rock crushers in
available places and crush at cost
thousands of tons this fall and
winter. While lime will be most
efficient, if applied and disked in
to the soil before seeding of
wheat, top dressings during the
late fall, winter and spring
should not be underestimated.
To supplement lime and phos-
Clcan Your Seed.
Apparently, there has been a
decided tendency among manu
facturers to build fanning mills
too light. When selecting a fan
ning mill, first determine defin
itely the frame work and body of
the machine to see that it is well
made of good material. The shoe
which carries the sieves should
be especially well made to with
stand the vibration and conveni
ently arranged for adjustment of
sieves. The length of stroke in
shaking the sieves should be adr
justable, as small seeds require
shorter strokes than the larger
ones, The air blast should have
adjustment that will make it a-
daptable to all conditions either
by a change in speed or in the
supply of air admitted into the
Clean and healthy seud will in
crease your yield. Co-operate
with your neighbors in securing
and using a fanning mill this
