in Industry
IN accordance with its fixed policy of
dealing fairly with all, the Standard
Oil Company (Indiana), has inaugurated
an Industrial Relations Plan, which is de
signed to promote a spirit of co-operation
and mutual understanding between those
responsible to the 4623 stockholders for
the management of the Company and
the nearly 10,000 men and women who
make up the personnel of the Manufac
turing Department.
This Plan provides that representatives,
elected by the employees of the Manu
facturing Department, together with
representatives appointed by the man
agement, meet in joint conference to
consider, discuss, and pass upon all ques
tions, involving the efficiency, welfare,
and happiness of the working organ
ization. This Plan provides an effective means of
communication and contact between the
management and their employees.
It affords these employees a voice in all
matters pertaining to their employment
and to theirworking and living conditions.
It is designed to promote co-operation
and confidence between the manage
ment and their employees by recognizing
their common interest in all matters per
taining to works organization, industrial
efficiency and social wellbeing.
The adoption of this Plan by the Com
pany and its employees is but another
step toward perfecting the service which
the Company is striving to render the

Licenses Raised for More Revenue
Appreciative of the fact that more
revenue for the current expenses of
the city government must be obtained
since the abolition of saloons has cue
down one principal source of funds,
a special adjourned meeting of the
City Council was held last Monday
night, adjourned over from the regu
lar meeting for this purpose, at which
time an ordinance No. 37H revising
the license system of the city and in
creasing license fees for most of the
ordinary businesses from fifty to one
hundred per cent, and even more, was
passed. Caruthersville Democrat.
Fourteen Hogs Stolen
One night last week 14 head of
hogs were taken from the pen at the
Oddy Layton Feed Store here near
the public square. The hogs would
average in weight about 185 pounds
each, or about $43 per head, or in other
words about $G00. The fact that there
was no break in the fence, and the
gate tightly closed, shows plainly that
the porkers were led out and driven
away. Up to the time these lines are
-written, no trace of them has been
found. Perry Co ntnSyuu bli)660ti(i.D

Mississippi County to Have Agent
Mississippi county will have an ag

For some time the county has been
without an agent and now one has
been secured, O. H. DeWolf, of Kan

DeWolf is a graduate of the Col
lege of Agriculture of the University
of Missouri, class of 1917. Since his
graduation he has been with the J.

' Some Record
Countv Farm Agent Jas. M. Ellison
informs us of an instance of extra
ordinarily rapid growth and culture
of corn in this county, as related to
him by Albert Kelley, a farmer in the
Pulltight neighborhood. Mr. Kelley
states that he planted forty-five acr?s
in corn, which came up, was plowed
three times and laid by within a per
iod of three weeks from the date ot
its planting, being almost breast-hign
and of a rich black color at the time
of completion, clean of weeds and very
thrifty. If there is a place anywhere
that can beat this record, we have
yet to learn of it. Caruthersville
Visiting By Airplane
Mrs. Emory Mathews of Sikeston
established a precedent in this city
for traveling in a most modern fash
ion Tuesday, when she came over
from Sikeston in an airplane for a
short visit with her mother, Mrs. Geo.
VanLear. Mrs. Matthews is the first
to use an airplane for a "taxicab" in
to Charleston, and one of the hrst in
Southeast Missouri, a Vanduser bank
er acquiring this honor last week by
hiring the Sikeston plane, to take him
back home after a business trip to tho
city. Lieut. Fawlkner, the aviator
who brought Mrs. Matthews over, is
the same airman who made the
flights around Charleston last week,
giving over fifty persons here their
first experience in the latest mode of
locomotion. Charleston Enterprise-
Missouri Cobalt Co. to Re-open
Notices were posted at the plant of
the Missouri Cobalt Company this
morning announcing an increase in
wages of the employees, effective tho
first of August. The amount of the
increase is not stated on the notices
and at the present time is a matter of
conjecture. Probably the market
price of the products of the mine at
the time of the raise will determine
the rate. An official stated that the
mine and mill work would be resumed
not later than the middle of August
at the old capacity. They were closed
something over a month ago because
of the extremely low price of copper.
The ro-opening of these two depart
ments will furnish employment for
an additional ninety to a hundred
men. Fredericktown Democrat-News.
Boy Drowns
Lee Smith, the 14-year-old son of
Mr. and Mrs. George Smith of Mine
La Motte, was drowned Sunday eve
ning in the lake back of the mill at
that place.
Lee, with another boy, Fred Dublois,
had gone to the lake and Lee was the
first into tho water. He waded out a
few feet and stepped into deeper wa
ter and became frightened. The Du
blois boy went to his assistance but
became frightened and ran home, a
distance of a half mile or more where
he reported the accident.
Several rushed to the lake as soon
as the affair was reported but no
sign was found of tho missing boy.
The Dublois boy showed where he
disappeared and Avery Green and
Will Johnson went into the water and
found the body almost in the exact
spot where he went down, lie was in
about six feet of water and had been
there about three-quarters of an hour.

Plowing With Fordson Tractors
A new occupation has developed in
Southeast Missouri in the way cf
tractor service for the trade.
Two young men A. G. Murphy,
better known in baseball circles as
"Peg Leg" Murphy, and Gene Mitch
ell, both from Farmington are now
plowing on the A. J. Matthews farm
at Oran at contract rates.
Plowing began about two weeks ago.
Recently Harvey Haile, another Farm
ington boy, came down with another
tractor and began plowing for the
same men. Now two Fordson tractors
are plowing steadily all day on the
big farm.
Contract rates average $3.00 an acre
and the two men operating one tractor
plow about 15 acres each day, begin
ning about 3 a. m. and quitting near
midnight. One of the men gets up
early and plows till noon; then the
other takes the tractor and plows un
til late into the night. The tractors
each pull two 14-inch plows and the
expenses of the machine will approx
imate $5 a day for oil and gas for
each one.
When asked if paying $3 an acre
was better than plowing with teams,
Emory Mathews replied that It was,
especially when the ground was dry.
"They can mnko money," he said,
"and we can save by it.
"Whore are they going from your
place when they finish plowing?"
"Oh, we will put them to disking,"
he replied, for plowing on the Clover
dale Farm at Oran is a job of a thou
sand or so acres. Sikeston Herald.
Later Earl McAtee has taken the
place of A. G. Murphy.
An Old Fault Finder
An irritable and fault finding dispo
sition is often caused by indigestion.
A man with good digestion and bowels
that act regularly is usually good na
tured. When troubled with indiges
tion or constipation take Chamber
Iain's Tablets. They strengthen the
stomach and enable it to perform its
functions naturally. They also cause
a gentle movement of the bowels. Ob
tainable everywhere. (adv.)
No convenience adds more to the
comfort and well-being of the family
on the farm than a good system of
running water. After it has been in
use for some time the farmer and his
family usually wonder how they ever
got along without it. Carrying water
is hard, tiresome labor and usually
must be done at the busiest time.
when other work is most pressing.
Extension Circular 49, by F. C. Pen
ton, explains systems, from the sim
plest to the most elaborate, by which
running water may be had in the
farm home. This circular may be had
upon request from the University of
Missouri College of Agriculture, Columbia.
The Best Physic
When you want a pleasant physic
try Chamberlain's Tablets. They are
easy to take and mild and gentle in
effect. They are highly prized by peo
ple who have become acquainted with
their good qualities. They only cost
a quarter. Obtainable everywhere.

Leaf blight diseases which attack
tomato plants cause a great deal of
loss each season by defoliating the
plants and causing their premature
death. A. L. Hailey of the East Dale
Canning Co., Seymour, Mo., sprayed
his forty-acre field of tomatoes la3t
year at the suggestion of tho Missouri
College of Agriculture. While spray
ing was started too late to be fully ef
fective, Mr. Hailey estimates that the
crop was increased at least one ton
per acre by spraying. Tomatoes were
worthe $15 a ton. the spraying cost
less than $5 per acre, even though la
bor was scarce and expensive. The
leaf blight is very prevalent this year,
and may do serious damage if not
checked. The material recommended
for spraying tomatoes is Bordeaux
mixture made up of four pounds of
copper sulphate, four pounds of lime,
and fifty gallons of water, the mater
ials being dissolved separately and
then poured together. If fruit worms
are troublesome one and one-half
pounds of arsenate of lead powder
may be added for each fifty gallons of
spray. A small compressed or knap
sack sprayer is most convenient for
spraying. Generally, the earlier
spraying is started, the more effective
it is in keeping the plants green and
healthy. Eggplant blight and fruit
rot are controlled by spraying in the
same way. Celery blight, melon
blight and mildew are also checked
very well by spraying with Bordeaux.
