SOME FACTS ABOUT GRAPES
' Considerable grape trouble has been
reported recently. The black rot is
the most serious enemyp of the grape
in Missouri and affects both leaves
and fruit. On leaves it causes dark
spots that are larger on the lower
side. On the fruit it begins with
small spots that spread until the en
tire fruit is covered and causes fruit
to dry and hang on the vine all winter.
If possible, plow under all leaves and
dried fruit in early spring or rake and
burn such trash. The spray calendar
for grapes is:
No. 1 '
What to SDray for Anthracnote,
black rot, downy mildew, insects
(chewing), aphids.
When to Spray When second or
third leaf shows.
What to Use Bordeaux 4-5-50 plus
2 pounds powdered arsenate of lead
or 4 pounds paste form.. Spray both
sides of leaves and canes. Veryi m
portant. No. 2
Spray, same as above; time, before
blossoms open; , use same mixture as
above. (When plant lice are found,
add 1-2 pint nicotine sulphate to each
50 erallons.
No. 8
What ot spray for: same as above;
time, after fruit sets; what to use,
same as above, very important.
No. 4
What to spray for! same as above;
time, 10 to 14 days after No. 3; solu
tion, same as above. ,
To prepare bordeaux mixture: Dis
solve 4 pounds copper sulphate (blue
tone) in water, slack 4 pounds of un
slacked lime in water, adding the wa
ter very slowly until steaming uni
formly. After steaming has ceased
add water to make a creamy solution.
The two solutions should be poured at
the same time into the spray tank.
Never use metal containers for bor
deaux mixture.
' Grape sprays should be put on at
the rate of 80 to 100 gallons per acre.
When fruit begins to form, spray di
rectly on the berries, using a fine noz
ile. Although it Is too late to do any
thing for grapes this ' year,; yet
thought should now be given for next
year's crops... .. t
Bring in Exhibit for State Fair.
Only three weeks until the .Farm
Bureau exhibit Tor the State Fair must
be shipped. The exhibit material
should be coming in now. . Few peo
ple who have had no experience in pre
paring bundles of the grains and
grasses for exhibit: realize the time
that work of this sort requires. If
the.1?? are not already prepared when
aasembled at the Farm Bureau office
or the" Carleton building, a great
amount of work is required to get
them in a crediatble condition. Hence'
the necessity of early assembly. Bring
' material labeled with the variety name
add the name of the exhibitor written
plainly or printed. Your co-operation
is necessary if we win. , The follow
ing are needed NOW: :
Corn in ear, 10-ear samples. . . ..
Wheat in sheaf, 2 samples each. '
Oats in sheaf, 2 samples each.
Rye in sheaf, 2 samples each.
Sudan grass in sheaf, 'i samples
each, needed soon. - .
Alfalfa, 2 samples from each cut
ting. . . .
Red clover, 2 samples. ;
Alsike clover, 2 samples each.
Sweet clover, 2 samlpes each.
Orchard grass, 2 samples each.
Blue grass, 2 samples each.

ielly can not be made from all juiaes
by rule of thumb. Jelly making is an
art founded on scientile principles. A
good jelly will quiver when removed
from its mold. It will be so tender
that it cuts easily with a spoon and
yet be firm enough that the angles
made by the spoon will retain their
shape. It should be clear and spark
ling. Water is the main constituent of
fruit juice. In it are dissolved small
amounts of flavoring materials, su
gar, acids and a substance called pec
tin. Pectin iB absolutely necessary in
jelly making. Anyone can find out
whether fruit juice contains this jel

from the white part of lemons or
oranges, and there is commercial pec
tin for the busv' housewife so she
won't havet o go t4 the trouble of

blackberries. 8-4 cup of sugar to one
cup of juice is plenty. For cranber

Add the sugar hot, so as nor to stop
the boiling of the juice, cook the mix
ture rapidly and do not try to handle
too large quantities. From two . to
six glasses may be made with good
results. Test the juice five minutes
after the sugar is added. When the
jelly "heets" off from the spoon, it is
done. If one has a thermometer that
test is most accurate with a centi
grade thermometer, fruit juices jell at
102 to 104 degrees. With Fahrenheit
thermometer, you will have jelly at
206 to 208 degrees. ,
Make Your Own Dustless Mop.
Dustless dust mops and dusters
may be prepared from soft discarded
cloths by enclosing them for three or
four days in an air-tight container
with a mixture made up of equal parts
of linseed oil, coal oil and turpentine.
After removing them fro mthe con
tainer shake and air and they are
ready to use. These dusters may be
washed, and when oiled will toe as good
as new.'' , ;
Use Your Double Boiler.
A double poiler can often take the
place of an oven. Biscuits, rolls or
muffins may be warmed, 'and it serves
nicely for crisping any of the ready
cooked cereals. Puddings, macaroni
and cheese and other dishes usually
baked in an over may be successfully
cVoked in the boiler. - ?
' Steps in Canning.
1. Clean and prepare product.
2. Precook, par boil, or scald pro
ducts that require it. If no prelim
inary cooking is needed, put. at once
into hot jars.
3. Pack products in jars that will
seal air tight. .
4. Add salt and water if vegetable
stock does not cover vegetable, add
syrup or fruit juice if fruits.
5. Adjust rubbers and tops.
6. Process required time.
7. Remove from canner and finish
sealing. ; v'
8. Place out of draft in cool place.

THANKS EXTENDED
The DeLassus base ball club wishes
hereby to thank the Farmington fans
for the reception and support given
to DeLassus at the ball game last
Sunday." DeLassus would like ! very
much to play the Farmington base
nail club again.
DeLassus B. B. C.
Interesting
: Ball Game
' One of the most interesting ball
games that has been played on the lo
cal grounds this season was that of
Sunday afternoon, between the DeLas
sus team and the home club. Not
withstanding the fact that the home
team and many or the local fans had
regarded the DeLassus team as being
a very inferior bunch, the visitors pre
sented a strong line-up and played ban
like veterans. In fact, they aroused
the local players and caused them to
put forth their best efforts, making
an unusually interesting and exciting
game. ...
The Delassus battery was particul
arly strong and clever, as was attest
ed by the many batters that expired
on the home plate. Also the first base
man lor the visitors exhibited rare tal
ent to attend to the initial sack. Nor
was the home team a second nine.
They were the same excellent team
with which manager Halter has an
nexed an almost unbroken series of
victories during the present season,
with the single exception of McCabe,
who has often attended first sack, who
was not in Sunday's game. But his ab
sence was hardly noted, as that sta
tion was ably looked after by Alva
Womack, who fills any position on the
grounds like a real ball player.
The score was 6 to 2 in favor of
Farmington. DeLassus wants an
other game with the locals, and the
game they played . Sunday entitles
them to it. ;
Next Sunday's game will be between
r armington and the Leadwood Amer
ican Legion team, on the home
grounds. The visitors will come with
an enviable reputation for ball play
ing, and expect to give a good account
of themselves. - The locals will be Put
to it if they keep up their record of
victories. liame will be called at 8
p. m. Admission. 25c and 35c. Lovers

COMPLIMENTARY TO
TRAVELING MEN
The following testimony as to the
worth of traveling men -as citizens of
any community, is reprinted from the
Saturday Evening Post. The Times
believes that every word of it is true,
else we would not reproduce it. There
are, we believe, fifteen traveling men
living in Farmington, which is, as we
see it, also most excellent testimony
of the drawing power of this com
munity for first-class citizens. Read
the following eulogy to a deserving
class of citizens:
Salesmanship is no longer the happy-go-lucky
matter it was. The mod
ern salesman is an' expert, a student,
a psychologist. His mission is to sell
goods, but he accomplishes his pur
pose by rendering service. He is a
counselor and friend. A postcard will
bring him from a distant city, and
once arrived ne wui study a shop or
store, take it apart to find the rusty
cogs, reanjust it to nt a modern plan,
and be gone with an order for the ma
chines or devices or goods his house
for sale. He is the hand-maiden of
efficiency, an apostle of pep, bring'
ing light into dark places and spread
ing the gospel of progress.
Now the salesman keeps fit. He
needs a level head. He -is a responsi
ble citizen, and his place on the pay
roll depends upon sound judgment
and an unblemished character. He is.
in many instances, the ambassador of
a great institution, digmlied by the
reputation of a firm that counts hon
or its chief asset. . .
Traveling men are good citizens.
Few men in other occupations are so
well qualified for the business of self
government. The traveling man knows
his country. He understands its
needs, its virtues, its faults. He
meets many men with many ideas,
reads much, debates much, and from
the random grist that comes to his
mill makes for himself a standard of
citizenship and a conception of good
government that are without bias or
prejudice or the narrowness that is
the penalty of restricted horizons.
. A government by traveling men
would be a sentible government, with
out, waste, delay, subterfuge or pet
ty bickerings, America loses much
because so ninny of her best citizens
are so frequently disfranchised by
their occupation. ,

Seed Wheat 7
Situation
Many farmers; are wondering where
thoy van get some good .seed - wheat
this year. The quality bf the - wheat
is bo far below normal thatt t will be
advisable for great number of farm
ers to secure seed from other sources
than their own farm. It is unfortun
ate that no wheat in the county was of
suincient quality to receive the stamp
of approval of the Corn Growers' As
sociation. However, the bright side of
the situation is that other Missouri
counties will have a quantity of certi
fied seed for sale. Since these fields of
wheat that passed inspection had less
than 1 per cent smut and less than 1
per cent of mixture, there is quite an
inducement for the farmers to pay a
premium on thia seed.
. .There are several reasons why mix
ture is undesirable. Some one variety
is best fore onditions in this locality
and the presence of other varieties in
the seed will reduce the yield. Prob
ably the most important disadvantage
of mixture of varieties is that ripen
ing of the different varieties included
is not likely to be uniform. ; If the
wheat is cut when the earliest of the
varieties mature, some of the grain
will be immature when harvested, and
if harvest is delayed until the later va
rieties have ripened, the earlier varie
ties will be over-ripe and some loss by
shattering will probably occur. The
principalc ause of this mixing of va
rieties is the traveling threshing ma
chine which carries sed from one farm
to the next. t ".'' '
The variety names applied to seed
wheat on the market are often mis
leading. Wheat sold for Fulcaster,
for instance, is in many cases very
different both in apearance and per
formance from wheat most commonly
grown under that name. For this sec
tion of the State the varieties of
Michigan Wonder and Fulcaster have
been found to be the best adapted. 1
; There is a common belief that wheat
grown for several years in the samel
locality will "run out" or deteriorate
iit yield and quality, and that frequent
cnange 01 seed is tnereiore desirable,
Many experiments to determine the
effects to continued culture of wheat
without change of seed have been con
ducted in various parts of the country
and under different conditions. From
the results of these experiments there
can be no doubt that wheat does not
necessarily "run out." On the , pon-
vrary, unaer proper conaitons, it
graauauy adapts itsell and becomes
more productive. Wheat from a dis
tant locality, particularly if the grow
ing conditions there are very different,
requires severaHseagoiig to Teadrit
highest productivity. . i ,
Under a vera ire farm ronJitinnu tha
yield of wheat frequently does de
crease steadily thro 11 eh a series of
years, but this may be due to causes
not at all associated with "running
out" of seed, as the term is usually
understood. Frequently the decrease
in yield is caused by the steady deple-
liuii vi m sou unuer continuous gram
cropping. What is needed is not a
change of seed but a change of farm
ing methods. Ulten the seed actually
does deteriorate, not because of degen
eration in the original stock, but be
cause diseases, weed seed, and mixture
01 other varieties are allowed to come
in.
A list of growers whose wheat was
certified will be published about Aug
ust 1st. interested persons may se
suro this list upon application.
THE SHIP SUBSIDY
The shin subsidy bill which ' Mr.
Harding is favoring, proposes to turn
over to the shipping trust $3,000,000,
000 worth of fine steel ships bought
by the government, the most modern
fleet in the world, most of them oil
burners. It is pointed out that these
ships were built with the people's
money and that the people own them,
but the Ship subsidy bill proposes to
turn them over to a group of capital
ists who control the shipping trust at
one-fifteenth of their cost.
More than this, the shin subsidy
bill would take $125,000;000 of the
people's money and loan it to the cap
italists to repair and recondition these
ships that have been permitted to go
down because of the fact that the
present administration has not taken
the proper care of them.
On top of this, the ship subsidy bill
would take $750,000,000 of the tax
payers' money and give it to these
capitalists inside of the next ten years
just for running the ships the adminis
tration proposed to give them at junk
prices.
There will be a lot of nronaganda'
sent out in a short time and Republi
can speakers will be telling farmers
that the ship subsidy bill is meant to
nenent tnem. 1 his will be to ease the
thing through, but the Republicans
will pass this bill while they still have
full power to do. v
This is only a brief outline of this
iniquitious measure. The bill does not
require any reports to be made to
Congress as to the earnings of these
ships. It would exempt the shipping
trust from the payment of Federal
taxes, in short, it would just give the
shipping interests a nice, soft thing
at the expense of the people. ' -'
While the administration is seeking
to fix this great burden upon the tax
ridden people, it is not concerning it
self about the condition of the work
ingmen and the farmers and not a
single measure is up that will tend
to-aid these two classes. ' "!
We don't like to harp on the mis
deeds of the party in power, but it
seems to us the middle classes should
get some consideration and that this
wasteful extravagance of building up
the millionaire class at the cost of the
laboring classes, should cease. Cen

Prohibition Officer Wm. Hogg, of
ropiar riiun. made a "drag" lor boot
leggers last Friday and gathered in
quite "school" of big and little ones.
This was the most sucessful drag that
has been made in thils county for some
time, so lar as numbers is concerned.
He brought seven in Friday afternoon,
all charged with bootlegging, and
lodged them in jail Friday night to
await the coming of Deputy U. S.
Marshals from St. Louis, who reach
ed here Friday night and escorted tho
coterie 01 alleged Federal offenders to

Primary Roads
: Equitably Settled
"Largely attended meeting of the
State Highway .Commission were held
in Jefferson City Monday. Tuesday
and Wednesday of this week. So large
was the attendance for the hearing of '
arguments, commendation and pro-
tests that the Constitutional Conven
tion concluded to. take a recess in or
der to give to the gahering he use of .
Representative hall. While many
countiM hv )aim iUMftA
Francois county had but four repre
sentatives. They were G. B. Snider
.of this city, Amos Norwine of Bonn
Terre, and Don Cameron and Mr. '
Tucker of Flat River. -
The hearing in regard to Primary
Road No. 4. in which this section of
the Stste is particularly interested,
came up during the first day of the
session. Advocates of the proposed
River Route were present in consider
able numbers, but their protests prov
ed to be absolutely unavailing. The)
State Highway Commission had act
ed on the recommendations of the'
Highway Engineers, and no discus
sion woudl be listened to regarding
change in the primary roads, which
it is also intended to feed by high
class auxiliary roads. But the prime
requisite of the primary roadways is
that they be made as straight as pos
sible, with but little regard to pass
ing through towns. They are not in
tended to be a "from farm to market
roadway," but for the purpose of
drawing great centers of population
as near together as is possible. Fri
mary Road No. 4 will pass through
Farmington.

A Busy Week in
Juvenile Court
At the opening of the special ses-,
sion of Juvenile Court last week, sev-
eral petitions were filed praying for
orders for adoptoins. One was where
a mother and four small children had
been brought before the court, the
mother having been convicted of some
misdemeanor. She was sentenced to
jail for failure to pay the fine that had
been assessed .against her, together
with the costs. A petition was filed
in the Juvenile Court, alleging that
the children wee being neglected on
account of the immoral conduct of
their motherf By order of the court .
the children i ere taken charge of and
committed to the home of detention.
Another petition was also filed, al
leging that a little boy was being neg
lected by reason of the immorality of
the mother. The court took charge of
the child and placed him in the care,
custody and control of the Presbyter
ian Orphanage. ;,
Two girls, aged 13 and 15 . years,
were brought before the court, and a "
petition was filed alleging that they '
were delinquent children. They had
run away from home, and had been in
the woods, west of Elvins, for three
days, in the company of several boys.
They were sentenced to three-year
