Thousands of farmers testify to these facts. Just why farmers will continue in keeping unprofitable hens after an opportunity has been given them to learn to cull U uncertain. Reports from farmers over tht county show that there are quite a few who do not ' cull. Mr. Townsley and Mr. Schroeder, poultry extension' specialists from" the Col lege of Agriculture, were in the coun ty Tuesday and held a culling school for county- agents and poultry com mitteemen i at Roy Johnson's. Some points discovered recently about char acteristics of good and poor layers were brought out af the culling school-, Mr; Townsley advised the agents in' their culling work not to cull flocks that had not received a pro tein feed Jthis summer. The culling practice 'sometimes receives a set back when a flock of this kind is culled.-) Those henSufekaaed as culls are culls sometimes, because of a lack of feed tnt goesto.niake the eggs, con sequently, whn they, are separated and all fed' according" to instructions, some of the culls will lay. '..Efforts will be made to hold culling demonstrations in every community of two, or three, school districts in the countyfupon, requests by people whose chickens haVe been teceiving a pro tein feed. These requests may be made by phone or letter to the Farm Bureau office. . The "farmers should remember that it is 'not possible for the acreirt to cull every flock in the county and that efforts must be made by the fanners to attend a culling demonstration tn their community ev en if they must go two or three miles to see it. Each flock Should be culled two or three times during the months of July, AnfruSt,' September and Oc- i tober, therefore the quicker the flock owfier, learns, to-ycu4;ihe better off he frs. ..... .... ,.... . - Here are' hi requirements to (get your fleck culled: been feeding a ra tion with protein! notify the- County Agent bjnetteferptiOneTlrUte r arm Bureau of if c ftwtrn ate hd hbf lias been arranged, notify . everyone within a radius of two miles, of the dwoorTrtTBtion; have; the bjehs enclosed ina Brnau spuce wnere canny caugut, tllll!?

The close pasturing and burning have resulted m destroying millions of these bugs. It is felt that some credit is due the Farm Bureau in this work of getting the farmers to take 1 steps' in control methods. ' : ,, i i . 1 'MARRIAGE LICENSES ! July 7th ; ' ,'. W. A.

They just naturally would go on a fox trot, so that the large verandas were kept comforta bly filled by those in the mazes of the dance, the glamour of which was add ed to by the beautiful moonlight, listed by an attractive array of Jan anesa lanterns. - - ..''J , . About ten o'clock (" splendid lundi bn was served, which was just what was most needed to put the :l final touch of approval on an unusually en' joyable evening. Taylor Smith, whose untiring efforts and large expenditure of money has made this splendid club house and grounds possible for this community, is entitled to and is de serving of the hearty support of all lovers of good clean sport and splen did amusement. '' ! An Ideal Rest ahd-i ,RecuperatingNook 'I".'-' ' ',' (7Th'e camp 'of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. C. Foister, on Wolf Creek,' about - five miles south of this city, is certainly an' ideal spot for rest, recuperation and pleasure. Splendid trees furnish constant shade for their tents and camping grounds, which is practically on the banks of the stream, which abounds in game fish. Right at hand there is also a bathing pool, which furnishes much pleasure. : F some time past Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Watson and Jimmie have been sharing this camp with Mr. and Mrs. Forsier, until it is now more common ly kiown as the Forster- Watson Cam. There- one who is run-down can soon regain their normal vigor in hunting, fishing, bathing or in any thing1 else they may feci inclined for; or, they can sit around the "camp fire", which in truth is a real stove in a fly-proof kitchen,' and hear har rowing tales of every description, as there are usually "warriors'!' present rwho have "fought,' bled and died" on many fields of valor. ..1, I ' It is certainly a real pleasure to be permitted to 'enjdy the hospitality of that tamp, either for an hour, a day or a week. - No one who has an invi tation ta enjoy the hospitality of that camp can afford to forego such . a pleasure, 1 nor will they, if they sus pect even a part of the pleasure that there awaits them. Notice to Public The coal situation . is extremely grave. 'At present it is impossible to get coal at all. We are now burning wood, endeavoring to keep the plant in operation the full 24 hours, but the wood supply is limited and only through the very closest co-operation of the consumers of light and water can this be done. Patrons of the plant will please use only such light, power and water as is absolutely necessary. ,C. A. TETLEY, Mayor. Bloomsdale Club Failed DeLassus For some reason, , of which The Times is not aware, the Bloomsdale ball team failed to put in their ap pearance Sunday afternoon, at DeLas sus for the game that had been ad vertised for that date and place. Such disappointment left , the DeLassus team with an off day, and the team de cided to go to, Freuericktown and see the game there between the home team and the Marquand club. . The re port given The Times is that Freder lcktown won the game, by a score of 9 to 3, with the assistance of - most atrocious umpiring in favor of . the home team. ,, ,1 ,.. ',. . At the conclusion of the main event, a movement was Btarted among some of the local fans for a five, .inning game between the home team and De Lassus, which was soon arranged fpr. But, our report is, the quality of um piring failed to improve in the slight eat degree, and Fredericktown claimed the second game by a score of 6 to 5. The Times informant says the consen sus of opinion, Qf,the; spectators was that DeLassus won by a score of 6 to 4. DeLassus. .hopes, to meet the .Fred ericktown team on their own grounds soon, when they declare, that while they will give them a square deal, they will also gjve them a sound; drubbing.

The school opened last week with about twenty in attendance. At the present time there are thirty enrolled, and they are arriving every day.'1 -y .: . I will not be long until there will be a hundred or more in attendance, and somewhat later, when there ia 250 or mora taking vocational training there, the value of this school, in benefits that will be derived by those in at tendance, as well as to this entire com munity, will be more fully appreciated. That the school will be filled to capac ity in time there is no doubt. , But this is something that cannot be pressed. Those who will attend are their own moral agents. ' DeSoto Beats - i - The Farmington ball team played the DeSoto team Sunday, at the lat ter place, and were defeated by ' a scora of 4 to O. ' Notwithstanding the fact that our boys failed to score,1 it was a well played game,' from start to finish. ' iThe local team was unable to bunch their bits, which was largely due to the fact that the DeSoto pitc er persisted in using an- emery ball, even after it had been excluded by agreements , 1 , Next Sunday's game will be played on the home grounds, with the Wa bash railroad team of St. Louis, as contenders. The Wabash team is com posed of high-class ball players, among the best in the amateur game, and a real contest is expected. ' ' Every ball fan, as well as every lev. ejr of good, clean base ball, should boost for and attend this game, there' by encouraging the management," as well as stimulating the players to put forth their very best efforts. Play will start promptly at 2:30. Admis sion 35c; children 25c. ' - GEORGE WILLIAM HARLAN At 2 o'clock - Tuesday afternoon, July 11, Rev.

Illinois College at Jacksonville, ill., and later took work at Andover college and at Princeton .University. Immediately after finishing his school ing he came to Missouri, where he has spent his entire life. . Those- were pi oneer, daysi.. without tha comforts lot the 'modern home 6r ease in travelling.

Tha num ber of passing ears counted in this poll was 1207. '."'.:" - Such data U for Information and use of the Chamber of Commerce, Last Sunday's -travel over that road was -apparently somewhat less than usual, owing to several causes, tha principal one ' of - which, perhaps, is the high price -of gasoline, which is certain to cause a reduction in the use of automobiles. While the pas sage of 1207 automobilea over that road in eighteen hours is certainly a very low average, it is an indication of the heavy' travel that road is con stantly compelled to handle, day after day, as Sunday travel is not much more brisk over' that road than the regular week-day 'travel. .-. ;. , Ii 4 , 1 V .
