The acreage of clover in St. Fran cois county will and should tie in creased this year. After the soil has been sweetened with limestone, clover has been found to grow well on land that formerly it would not grow on. In some communities, a large number of farmers are applying limestone to their soil. On the average they nre using two tons per acre. That this -n.;nn will innfl1 in nther pommun- UJCM'blvi. . - ' - . ities, is assured, as some farmers in these other communities are getting a ton or more to put oh a half acre of . ifumiM.trat inn nnrnnxefl.

The ordinary roughage, such as corn stover and ordinary grass hay, is low in the necessary protein. On many farms, this protein is supplied by feeding such concentrates as bran, oil meal, or cotton seed meal; but these concentrates are expensive and on most farms should be in large measure replaced by a leguminous forage crop, such as red clover, which can be grown in the place. Red clover is one of the most highly nutritious forage plants, either in the green state or cured as hay. . The clovers have been justly ranked as the principal foundation of a per manent system of agriculture. By the proper utilization of the clover in the rotations, it is possible permanently to maintain the supply of nitrogen and humus in the soil. The fertilizing value of red clover .s not entirely m the hay which would be plowed under if the crop were to be used for Kreen manure. Experiments show that JO to 50 per cent cf the fertilizer value of the clover may lie in the root, and stubble which are plowed under, even though the hay crop is removed. In one experiment, an experiment station found that the red clover produced on an acre, contained 122 pounds of nitro gen, 68 pounds of potash, and t pounds of phospnonc aciu. qnently happens that the yields of grain crops are increased as much as 10 bushels to the acre by turning un der clover sod. ' However, the only real addition it makes to the land is . i - i ,nni;.fl tafrfttnar with me nunius n r the nitrogen it is able to extract from the uv The other fertiliser dement, .nk nti nntnsh and phosphoric acid, most needs be drawn from th. il It self. As soils commencing to K low yields are likely to be low n nitrates, the use of clover will bring largely in creased returns for a number of years, unti the other fertilizer elements be gin to fce depleted. Under such con ditions, the clover acts in one sense as a stimulant to the soil, m that it induces tho soil to give up larger quantities of the other fertilizer ele ments than it would otherwise be called upon to do. In as much as phosphoric acid and potash are not added to the soil toy the growth of red clover thereon, it is untimately nec essary to supply these in the 1171 -commercial fertilizers, or in the form of commercial fertilizers, or in the form of barnyard manure, from time to time. , The best time to sow clover, ac cording to W. C. Etheridge, Professor of Field Crops at the Missouri College of Agriculture, is in early spring, when the ground is alternately freez ing and thawing. The seed should be gown in the morning when the groud is hard ad the seed will be worked in to the soil by the alternate freezing and thawing of the soil during the next few days. Seed of the highest quality should always be used. It is extremely wasteful to spend time and money in making preparation for clover and then to use low grade seed which not only germinate poorly, but also introduce a multitude of noxious weeds into the soil. What About Chinch Bugs? " Mr. Farmer, did you know that one day spent this winter, or early spring in burning the chinch bug harbors and another day spent in getting or l : .. .ai.liksi n An likewise. may save you may ousneis oi corn next summer? A day spent this spring in burning, is worth an untold amount to you, if you have chinch bugs on your farm and I am afraid many of you have. You may be trust ing to the weather to kill them, but I would rather trust some nre. ny not supplement the weather man with a little kerosene and matches rightly applied? Remember, one female chinch bug killed this winter or early spring may mean aoout iu,uuu less w " eat your corn next summer. If chinch bugs were present on the farm last year, the chances are that some are there in hiding now. . It might be well to make a thorough search for them and start a fire cam paign against them. If you are in terested in putting on a campaign in your community, or on your farm, yon can receive help by calling phone 445, or coming to the Farm, Bureau office. Terraces' Save; Fertility.' Erosion in one 'season often robs the soil of more fertility than can be put back by turning under several crops of clover; according to Patterson Bain, Jr., of the Missouri College of Agriculture. Plant food is annually washed away in greater quantities than required to produce a bumper crop. To stop this waste is simple. ' The method was understood thousands of years ago in many parts of the world, in Europe, China, and South America In Peru, for example, whole mountain sides were terraced so successfully that to this day on their "stair case forms" the centuries-old terraces still hold the soil in place. Even in the United States, terrac ing has been in practice for more than one hundred years. Briefly stated, a system of Mangum terraces consists of a series of broad, smoothly crowned ridges, aDout ntteen inches high, which carry at a slight slope never more than six inches in one hundred feet the water in the channels above them to suitable outlets. Mangum ter races can be constructed simply and at slight expense with a road grader, ditches, or home-made drag, much as dirt road is crowned. The construc tion cost per acre varies from one to two dollars and the upkeep averages twenty-five to fifty cents. There is much land that is being farmed in St. Francois county that would be greatly benefited by terrac ing. The Executive Committee of the Farm Bureau, realizing this, Is adopt ing terracing as one of the projects to be worked on the year of 1922. In every school district of the county are farms on which soil could Be saved by terracing. Demonstrations have been staged in many communities in the county. It is well worth a farmer's time to make a visit to one of these fields and see these terrace dams. Here is a list of farmers who have construc ted one or more dams: C. I. Garrett, Bismarck; Ed Powers, Bismarck; Ot to West; Bismarck; John Werner, French Village; Wm. Mund, Hazel Run; Robert Booth, Salem; Chas. Hopkins, Farminpton, Route 4; H. Chandler and C. C. Schuttler. Unity district; G. C. O'Bannon, Knob Lick; and Chas. Covington, Cross Roads. Some requests have come in for more work of this kind. If anyone is interested in this, see the County Agent and plans will be made for this work at some suitable time. Early Gains Arc Cheapest Definite figures have been obtained hy the Missouri Experiment Sation, to yrove the general experience that early gains on hogs are cheapest. In 1921 an investigation was conducted to find what was the relation between the amount of feed consumed by swine and the quanty of pork produced. Pigs weighing 100 pounds each wer placed on a ration of corn shorts and tankage and grown to weigh S00 pounds. One oie was killed and anal yzed at the beginning, and others at weights of 200 and 300 pounds. All lgs were fed the same ration ana ent in a dry lot. so the exact amount of feed consumed could be determined. In this was it possible to estimate the Brain required per pound gain in live weight, in fat and In lean meat ' The result agreed with general ex perience in regard to Weignt. "A the pigs became heavier, more feed was required per pound gain. In going from 100 to 200 pounds, 4.3 pounds grain were required per pound gain, while in going from 100 to 200 pounds 5 pounds grain per pound gain were required. It was somewhat surprising that as the hogs became heavier, the amount of feed consumed per pound gain of fat became somewhat less. While the pigs were going from 100 to 200 pounds, 10.8 pounds feed were con sumed for each pound of fat gained, and in growing from 100 to 300 pounds 9.3 pounds feed were consumed per pound fat gained. In regard to the production of lean meat, the results were more favorable to the lighter hoes. In gaining from 100 to 200 pounds, 12.5 pounds feed were required for each pound gain in lean meat, and in growing from 100 to 300 pounds, 20 pounds feed were required for each pound of lean meat gained. The result indicated that when a heavy grain ration is fed, lean meat is not produced economically af ter a weight of 200 pounds is reached, while fat is produced most economical ly from the point up to and beyond 300 pounds. HOME DEMONSTRATION .NOTES I. C. U. Has 1922 Program of Work. The I. C. U. Home Makers' Club met at the home of Mrs. F. H. Best, Friday, Jan. 27th. Officers for the coming year are: Mrs. T. B.

' Two New Communities Organize Women in the Davis Crossing Com munity met Tuesday, Jan. 24th, at the home of Mrs. W. J. Layne and dis cussed the various subjects in which they are interested. A whole year's program was not made but the women will take up some work in poultry and clothing; Later, their program will be completed. ' ., "'In the" Stono community, Wednes day, ten women came to an organiza tion meeting held at the home of Mrs. Ed Ethser. They chose the followig subjects: Home Care of the Sick, Household Conveniences, Millinery, General Care of Poultry. Their lead ers are Mr?. C. F. Henrich, Health; Mrs".

All the Year Around Garden "I can't find anything to cook;" "3 don't know what to plan for meal: this time of year." These are mutua! :omplaints at this season wherevei (arm housewives are gathered togeth- Special-Grand Jury Ordered i . After closing the special term of circuit court this week, Judge Huck ordered another grand jury to be summoned for the next term of circuit court, which will convene Feb. 16th. This course was decided upon owing to the peculiar conditions which sur round the klling of James Birchall near Frankclay on the evening of De cember 10th. last. While two are now under arrest for that murder, it is feared that devel opments in the case will be difficult to secure, owing to the fear of some who might be able to give important information regarding such killing that they might be made to - suffer should they tell what they know. This, The Times is infomed, is the reason for the ordering of another grand ju ry at this time, as thero was a sev eral weeks grand jury session at the last term of circuit court. . As infor mation given the grand jury is sup posed to be absolutely secret, it is the thought of Judge Huck in making this order that such a body will be able to secure more information in regard to the killing of young Birchall than could otherwise be obtained. The County Court will perhaps se lect the grand jury at their regular monthly meeting, which convenes next Monday. er. Now, while there is still time to plan for a garden, is the time to pre vent this food famine of next year. After the long winter months, ev eryone craves crisp green food and these are the first seeds we sow: let tuce, radishes and onions. Then we plant for the summer days. Too of ten we do not, in laying out gardens, think of the late winter and early spring weeks when "it is so hard to find anything to cook." In forecast ing gardens, there must be three very definite things in mind. 1. Plat lor the summer season when a family can' practically live from the garden. , 2. i or the early winter, when it is possible to have variety from the root vegetables stored. o. Lastly, for the late winter months, when the stored vegetables have lost their erispness and fresh ness and it is still too early to have the fresh things. The easiest way to meet this third provision is to -plant for a surplus of summer "vegetables which are to be canned and dried for winter ' use. The women whose shelves are thus stocked are not a.nong those who wail, "I cant find anything to eat." Avoid Catching Cold "Common Colds" are due to germs, and colds of this kind are usually spread by contact spread by spray from the nose and throat of persons with colds. Keep away from persons with a cold. Don't sneeze or cough without cov ering your mouth with a handker chief. An old cloth or paper napkin makes a good handkerchief for a cold as they can be burned. Don t spit on the floor or sidewalk. When cold seems to be severe and aggravated in character as is some times said, "heavy on the chest", the family doctor should be called at once. The line between a cold of this kind and an attack of pneumonia is hard to distinguish. It is important that you should have medical advice early. Most cases of pneumonia start with a cold, and many cases of tuberculosis are the direct result of whooping cough and long standing cases of ''band cold with a cough." The season is here when pneumonia is getting in its deadly work. Avoid stuffy overheated rooms in your homes, schools, churches and places of amusement. All you need do is spend an hour or so in a close, over heated, badly ventilated room with a person who already has a bad cold and you will soon develop one as se vere or more so than the person from whom you got your infectin. Avoid sick people. Mr. and Mrs. Tom McCheshey, formerly of Farmington, who for sev eral years have been living in St. Louis, have been visiting relatives and friends here the past week. They left this morning for . Salem, III., where they will take charge of a laundry. Coming! Coming! Dr. S. Bark Cadman, of Brooklyn Tabernacle, New York, "Universally acknowledged one of the world's greatest preachers," will fill the third num ber of the Farmington Lyceum Course, in the Mon arch theatre, on Monday night, February 13th.

" ' SINGLE ADMISSION, 60 CENTS Constitutional Election Tuesday The following is the complete vote of St. Francois county, as polled at Tuesday's election for Constitutional delegates. The vote is unusually light, an4 demonstrates clearly that the people generally are caring very little about a Constitutional election.

TEACHERS' EXAMINATION The next regular county teachers' examination will be held at the Farm ington high school building on Fri .nl Safiirlav Mnrrh 3rH and 4th. beginning at 8 a. m. on each day. The subjects will oe given in me name or der as has been the case for several years. For Information circular, lists of old questions, etc., write J. Clyde Ak ers,i.Earmington, Mo. 5-4t. G. N. Baker, who has been tn charge of the Standard Oil station here since it was established more than a year ago, has been relieved of that work, for the stated reason that they were putting in younger men in those plac es. While the manager in this- terri tory told Mr. Baker that his work had been entirely satisfactory throughout his service with them, his discharge from that position, he stated, wgs wholly on account of the company's plan to install younger men. Durintr his service Mr. Baker has devoted about fifteen hours of every twenty-four hour day to his work for the company, and his many friends are inclined to feel that he has not been treated right in this matter. He, and his good wife have been so anxious for him to make good that she has carried to him each day two meals, in order that he might be con stantly on the job during his long hours or work. If the statement ot the manager is true, that his services have been entirely satisfactory, then it does not seem either right or fair that he should have been relived in such manner. Another Surpass ing Home Talent The presentment of "Cheer Up" at the Monarch on Wednesday and last evening, under the auspices of the Ladies' Aid Society of the M. E. Church, South, was certainly one of the best entertainments ever produced in this city. What makes such a statement even more remarkable is the fact that it was entirely a home tal ent production. In fact it seems to the writer that each new production by the exceptional talent of this city seems to surpass all previous efforts. Whether or not this is absolutely true it is impossible to say, but The Times feels perfectly free to say that it will be no amateurish performance to com pare with the splendid production of ''Cheer Up" the past two evenings. While the orchestra was comnoned entirely of young folks, it would be amicuit inaeed to Improve upon their performances. i It was composed of the followng: Piano, Virginia Morris; saxaphone, Willard Marbury; cornet, Louise Lang; alto, Leonard Marbury; Trombone,-Douglass Heifner; Bass, Ted Graves; drums, Joe Applegate. Mrs. John Robinson presented in most interesting manner the prologue of the entertainment, first introducing "Kiddieland" in Daisy Days. Little Gwendolyn Robinson and Helen Spaugh sang solos in this interesting cantata, in wmen they were assisted by fifty other little daisies. The next scene was especially well receiveu, oeing a --college V,norU8 , with Ted Graves as soloist, assisted by Mary Tetley, Bessie Denman, Le lia Davis, Evelyn Ware, Virginia tveitn, Helen Karsch, Margaret Syl vester, Louise Lang, Eula Bugg, Flor ence Hunt, Eugene Morris, Donald Garten, Harry K. Denman, Leonard Marbury, Harry McLarney, Karl Na tions, Joe Swink, J. M. Karsch, E. J. McKinney, Kinley Bugg. Miss Herwig appeared as soloist "In Little Old New York", being as sisted byNaoma Garner, Ethel Le Pere, Myra Dobbins, Miss Wilson, Gertrude Black, Miss Huss. The Boogie Boo Girls next presented a pleasing specialty, with Kathleen Counts as soloist, while in this galaxy of attractive youth were Elsie HayH, Virginiia Byington, Alma Coffman, Evelyn Wallace. Gladys Miller, Helen Marty, Gail Downing, Barbara Tul lock, Maldyn Brewer, Beulah Beatty. The next was a "Carnival Act," in which practically, all the talent partici pated w we-very --enjoy aide, t 'Mr; Whorlev aooeared as the official "spieler," and the manner in which he acquitted himself indicated previous experience as a balla-hoo artist. He conducted an enjoyable contest, and awarded a "loving cup" to the win ners. Those participating in this were Allen Burks, Walter Blomeyer, Wilbur Akers, Henry Warren, Clarence Car ver, William Gardner, Houck Tetley, Opal Evans. Then followed an interesting chil dren's cantata, in which Coriney Wil liams appeared as soloist in "Ma," in which the following participated: Aleen McAtee, Mildred Graves, Ruth Allen, Maxine Byington, Emely Mc Kinney, Gladys Richards, Eugenia Morris, Mary Williams, Dorothy Rob inson. Georgians Williams, Virginia Heifner. In the next number Corrine Wil liams again appeared as soloist, with a splendid rendition of "Peggy O'Neill," being assisted by Grace Wil loughby, Bernice Byington, Martha Harlan, Dorothy Courtney, Helen Evans, Majorie Rinke, Anna Marbury, Edna Garner, Helen Elayer, Edith Du la, Ruth Crowder, Viola Le pere, Ruth Kite, Mary Manley. "12th Street Prunes" was a special ty that brought forth npporval, and was participated in by Eugene Morris, Harry K. Denman, Harry McLarney, E. J. McKinney. Here followed an eight minute in termission, while the lighting effects were being perfected for the remaind er of the program, which presented Country Club Farty, consisting ot Helen Graves, Martha Raines, Elnora Baker, Mary Williams, Jennie Carver, Willa Horn, Virginia Marbury, Allen Burks, Walter Blomeyer, Wilbur Ak ers, Henry Warren, Clarence Carver, William Gardner, Houck Tetley, Opal Evans The effect of this stage setting was very pleasing, showing each of several small tables illumined with indivduol lights, around which were seated the club members. The first number on their program was the "Gibson Man", sang by Myra Dobbins, all joining in the chorus. "Main Street" was sung by Mr. Whorley. Here the musical program was broken into by Bernard Harter and Joe Swink, black-waiters for the par ty, who brought forth a number of hearty laughs by their bright bits of nonsense, closing with a duet. The following numbers were all splendidly given: "Do You Ever Think of Me", Vir ginia Marbury, Houck Tetley. "Alice Blue . Gown", Helen Graves, assisted by Country Club Party. ' f'Shadows", Allen Burks, assisted by Country Club Party. "Senora'l, Lelia Davis, Evelyn Ware, Louise Lang, Margaret Sylvester. , "Sweethearts", . Soloist, Martha Raines. i . The Boogy Boo Girls here presented another pleasing specialty, singing in their captivating manner, "Ain't .We Got Fun." ' " : "Life is a: See-Saw" was a fitting close to this most excellent perform ance, which was sung by Miss Her wig, assisted by the Country Club."- Practically all the credit for these two evenings of unusual enjoyment is due to the members of the Ladies' Aid Spciety, to whose untiring efforts Big Law Suit; Heard Here ( Judge Peter Huck convened a spe cial term of circuit court here Mon day morning, for the purpose of hear ing a case wherein Samuel R. May nard is plaintiff and the St. Joe-Doe Run Lead Co. is defendant. The is sues in this case date back to about 1906, and involve several millions f dollars. The points at issue appear to be somewhat technical, and The Times will make no effort to elucidate them, as the only' local importance in the case is tho fact that it originated in this locality and is being heard here. Another noteworthy development in this hearing is the large amount of eminent legal talent that is employed in the hearing. While E. A. Rozier is actively in charge of the defense, he is being assisted by Albert C. Wall, a celebrated attorney of New Jersey, D. N. Kirby of St. Louis, and Mr. Ashley of Kansas City. The plaintiff, Mr. Maynard, is rep resented by H. M. Langworthy, of Kansas City, who has demonstrated his ability to handle this case in a sat isfactory manner to his client. He is assisted by A. L. McCauley, of Car thage. The fact has been developed in this hearing that the plaintiff is perhaps the largest stockholder in the great corporation that Is defending the suit. Herndon Chubb, another of the large stockholders, of New York City, was here this week as a witness. . This visit proved to have been his first to the lead belt, in which he has such large holdings. The taking of evidence was complet ed Wednesday evening, the plaintiff being the principal witnes, and was on the stnnd most of two days. Ho proved his ability to take care of him self throughout the gruelling cross ex amination, making his contentions perfectly clear. It was then agreed to hear arguments in this case on March 9th, after which court was adjourned. FARMINGTON PRIEST TO BE MAPLEWOOD PASTOR.
