These floats will show the development of the Hereford and Jersey Cattle in the county due to farm bureau work. The other float will depict the health work pushed and developed by the farm bu reau. Best Fields of Wheat Traced Back to Seed Tested by College. WJiila insmectinir fields of wheat for the approved seed list published co operatively by tne Missouri yum th Umver- Corn riof MissoTrir insfecors of the! ?t3;L; f,,nH throughout the state University found throughout the state many superior neios wnicn are large ly of varieties recommended by the University as the result of repeated tests conducted in different parts of the state. It is noteworthy that many of the best fields traced back directly to Beed that was sent out in small lots to farmers from the University for testing purposes, says D. W. Frear, extension specialist in field crops for the Missouri College of Agriculture. In quantity of seed which will be I available and in general productivity, the Fulcaster variety is in the lead; , Poole and Michigan Wonder also make a good showing. Many farmers are buying seed each year of varieties "of which the pro ductivity ana quality is uhmiu.i with the intention of producing grain which can be sold as approved seed and as a result very few, if any, of these fields are of sufficiently good quality to be approved. This sug gests the desirability of farmers sow ing seed of known and tested varie- . ties which have ibeen grown in the state long enough to prove their pro ductivity. In some sections of the state the introduction of these new varieties is complicating an already i very bad seed situation by increasing the mixing of varieties caused by too many being grown in the same com munity. Usually in any community the same- variety of wheat can be raised with larger average yield and better results than will follow from . raising a number of varieties. . 1 Many farmers who buy seed from outside the state are induced to do so from seeing samples of threshed grain or heads and from, records of yield produced outside the state. Such rec ords, and samples are no guarantee as to what the ' wheat will do- when hroueht into the state and seldom do these varieties measure up to the claims ma do for them. Farmers who go outside the state to; secure ' seed wheat would save themselves money and disappointment in many cases, .if they would buy a bushel or two of the seed end try it out instead of making a laree purchase of the seed. ; This small amount of seed carefully thresh. ed and platted each year will in a very short time, give them enough seed with which to plant their entire field ". providing it proves to be a desirable - variety. x In addition;" to being of kriown va rieties, th seed Which is listed by th Corn Growers' Association, comer . . f mm fields which have been inspected .' and which are known to be of good quality, and the local adaption of which has been proven by their pro ductivity. Ample supplies of seed of tested varieties, will be on the ap nmvnl lint hi. vear and farmers de siring approvea seeo wm neiy ve little difficulty, in getting same. Those interested in securing some of this approved seed should consult their county agent or write the Sec retary, Missouri Corn Growers Asso ciation, Columbia, Mo. r , Chicken Culling Demonstration Being '6ne of the first fundamentals in profitable poultry keeping is tne elimination of those hens that do not produce eggs enough to pay ' board. Some hens, even when properly, fed and housed, will not be profitable to kei.il. "The future of a hen. if she has been properly fed and housed, can be judged by her past performance. There are certain characteristics that are associated with high egg produc tinn. The time to look for these charac teristics is now. Many hens are now moulting, which is not correlated with hiVh eee nrodiiction. The best hens do not molt until October 1st. Those hens showing little capacity at this time of the vear. when getting plen ty of the right kind of feed are the low producers. These . and other characteristics -that are related to egg production are being brought out at the culling demonstrations. Last week culling demonstrations were held at John Babb's in the Sink Hole community and at A. A. John son's on the Jackson road. A total of 20 people attended these demonstra tions. More vthan two hundred hens were examined and 87 hens classed as culls. Most of the peolpe present learned how to cull and promised to culr their flocks when they returned home. A culling demonstration was held this week at J. S. Horn's, north west of French Village. Two demonstrations are planned for today, Friday, one at H. L. Keith's on the old St. Louis road, and one at Wm. PatTs, near Doe Run. If you want a culling demonstration, leave your ap-, plication at the Farm Bureau office. r Picnic Plans Maturing The St. Francois County Farm Bu reau Picnic to be held September 1st, is attracting a great deal of attention and creating enthusiasm. Mr. John A. Montgomery, president of the Southeast Missouri Agricultural Bu reau, will make an address. Mr. Montgomery is well known in South east Missouri and has the reputation of bringing a message of interest and importance wherever he Bpeaks. "Barnyard golf" will be a big fea ture of the picnic. Cash prizes will be given to the best pair of horse shoe Ditchers from each community. Later this best pair of pitchers will be matched against the . ibest pair from other communities. The win ning pair from the entire county will be selected in this manner. A $5 cash prize will be awarded to this pair. The committee in .charge of the event is composed of Fred Kollmeyer, chair- 1 ... . . vtr r- :j man; uuo west, ana j. ty. iaviu. A base ball game will be played be tween the I. C. U. boys and a team consisting of boys from French Vil lage and Hazel Run. Harry Sutton is in charge of the (races and he promises to have some real exciting events. C. B. Denman has charge of the races for girls. One special event being arranged for is a water-melon eating contest. Of course, a big basket dinner will be one of the big features of the day. REPUBLICAN AID FOR THE FARMER The funniest piece of inspired Re publican fiction of modern times is be ing circulated in a large number of rural Missouri newspapers under the head of "Administration Went to Aid of Agriculture". This rare' bit of lit erature, obviously emanating from the Republican National Committee, is well worth dicestine from the stand- point of humor alone and readers of this paper who are mcKy enougn to have Republican neighbors are ear npctlv nninined to borrow their naners and chuckle over it. space iormas publication of this epic but we will do the best we can and print a little of . . it. Harken unto this: "On its accession to power, the ad ministration found the farmer in i slough of despond into which he had been plunged by economic conditions brought about in part ny the extrava gant practices or tne preceding re gime. In the shadow of threatening financial and industrial disaster that then lowered over the nation, the farmer, burdened by indebtedness and crop-poor as a result or tne tailing prices, loomed as a figure cast for tragedy. , His condition demanded im mediate relief and this the adminis tration has sriven him." How is that for sheer bunk? Ask any farmer Republican or Demo crat wnetner ne was more prosper ous under the laSt fifteen months of Wilson's administration or the first fifteen months of Harding' adminis tration and see what he says. Ask him what he thinks of live stock pric es, of wheat prices, or corn prices. Ask him and hear him "cues." "One of Mr. Harding's first acts was issuance of a call for an extra session of Congress in order that there might be prompt enactment of a tar iff measure which would afford the farmer quick relief from falling pric--s." the article savs. "This lemsla- ion was speedily put through in the ?orm of an emergency tariff and thf ubseauent rise of prices on agricul- ural commodities is convincing proof f the effectiveness pi this remedial iction." - -. , Fine words, but meaning nothing Ve have the official opinion of 'the Um';ed States Tariff Commission it self that with the possible exception of wool, the so-called emergency tar iff did not assist the farmer in the least. We know that under the tariff we paid more for our flour and got less for our wheat. And yet the Re publican National Committee, has the audacity to dub it effective "remedial legislation." - "But this relief was not enough, continues the article. (We should say not!) "Vast numbers of farmers were threatened with loss not only in stored crops but in lands on which they had been forced to place mort gages and liens. To enable them to meet the obligations thus created the War Finance Corporation advanced funds that enabled agricultural debt ors to come safely through th era of Some truth here. But who created the War Finance Corporation? Wood row Wilson and a Democratic Con gress.

State Journal. PLANTS POISONOUS TO UVE STOCK IN MISSOURI Jefferson City, Mo., July 31. Doc ton iDavidi Franklin Luckejr, Live Stock Commissioner of the bt. Louis live stock market, for more than 20 years State Veterinarian of the Mis souri Board of Agriculture, makes the following statement on "Plants Poisonous to Live Stock in Missouri": There are a great many plants in Missouri too numerous to mention that are poisonous if stock would eat them. Jimson weed is an example. The seeds are poisonous but are sel ,m if over, eaten. Either the ob jectionable taste of the plant or the natural instinct of the animals keep them from eating the poisonous ones found in Missouri. , except when pressed by hunger. ,- ; An outstanding fact is that the best bred cattle in the herd that is, the best eaters are so nearly always the ones affected. Scrawnjy poor feeders are scarcely ever hurt, except possibly in cases of wild-cherry In twenty years, of, observation, I VinvA known of two cases of cattle being poisoned on young cockle-burs,l one case oi norses poisoneu on wu talaria or rattle-box in the hay, and only a few cases of cattle poisoned on the wilted leaves of the wild-cherry tree. .

Badly Lop - - - ; Sided Game The hall game played in the Farm ington park, between the home team and the Leadwood American Legion aggregation, was perhaps the most one-sided game that has been played in this city, especially during the pres-1 ont season. While the visitors came with a rep utation for good ball playing, having defeated a number Tf fairly strong teams this season, their play Sunday did not uphold such reputation. In fact most of the players failed abso lutely to indicate the slightest base ball ability. ' . ; , There was a notable exception, how ever. Freeman, the boxman, proved to local fans that he has rare ability in foolingr the batters, of which the local team is strongly possessed. , He retired many of them in one-two-three order. The wonder is that he could "fan" any batter with the woeful lack of support he had. 1 The game was so weak and unin teresting that the local team appeared to lose interest, and during one inning they made a series of errors which en abled the visitors to score three times. Farminsrton scored 11. and in the sev enth inning the second baseman for the visitors, evidently becoming dis- pusted bv their inability to play, de cided to quit, and the game ended ir most unsatisfactory manner. The local team will play next Sunday-at Deslocre. aarainst the Lead Belt Arcadia Valley team, which is an un usually strong aggregation, which has been winning with great regularity atrainst all competitors. The Farm- ingtoil team will be strengthened con siderably for this game and are ex pected to give a good account of them- selves, It promises to be a fast game. j ' Greatly Improved Assembly Grounds The Times editor was privileged to visit the Methodist Assembly Grounds at Arcadia Tuesday. We were sur prised to find but few there that day, until we were reminded that the small attendance was the direct re sult of most everyone having gone home to yote, while those who re mained were expecting to make use of absent ballots.s- f , ' K' V- ' " - ThU"-enly shews that-those whft' -t-'-f tend -church assemblies are an mucn interested an the elections as are others possibly more so. And why should they not be? Much either for good or evil depends on the elections, and surely the church folks have a right to be as deeply interested in. election results as are any other class of citizens. Correct service along this line is really as much a religious duty as is any other. The writer noted a number of splen did improvements about those splen didly located grounds, prominent among which is the piping of the en tire grounds and cottages with the purest of water, which also enables the sprinkling of the entire grounds. The water comes from a splendid spring in Arcadia, and is supplied to the as sembly grounds from , an immense concrete reservoir but recently com nleted on the crown of a bill some dis tance away, with an elevation of more than fifty feet above -the tabernacle. Another improvement that will bring the greatest amount of pleas ure, comfort and convenience is splendid rest rooms for iioth ladies and gentlemen. Besides toilets, wash rooms and dressing rooms, tney are equipped with shower baths, the water for which is neated at tne engine house nearby. This structure was not only planned, but the necessary money WHS man mio?u uy ivc. v.. . gins, the able and capable Presiding Elder of this District. The trreatest crowds that have ev er assembled on tho3e grounds have alreadv fathered there, and even larg er gatherings are expected before the assembly : closes.

Attempted Burg lary Interrupted About 1 o'clock Sunday morning a burglar was interrupted in his work in the Donze Motor Co. by the proprie tor, Oscar Donze, and made his es cape without getting anything. At least nothing as yet has been missed from such midnight visitation. Soon after midnight Mr. Donze, who with his wife lives above his es tablishment, was aroused by what he thought was someone moving about on the first floor of his premises. He got up and -went down stairs to inves tigate, Dut failed to turn on a ugnt. Finding noting amiss, he returned to bed, but in about twenty minutes he thought he heard that same stirring about on the first floor. .. He aroused his wife and she also could hear the same disturbance. He again went to the head of the stairs, but this time his wife accompanied him, as she at once knew that things were not as they should bo and would not permit her husband to rush into danger. From the head of the stairs he asked who was below, thinking one of the proprietors of the garage in the rear might he causing the disturbance. Immediately after speaking, owever, they noticed the form of a man run ning into the garage. . Mr. Donze then raised a window and called to a man on the St. Francois hotel corner, who proved to be Night Watchman Geo. Sutherland, that there was a burglar in his place and to run to the rear and Intercept him. Before the Night Watchman could get to the rear of the long building the burglar had made his escape through a window. He had moved the safe several feet, apparently to get more lieht throueh the window preparatory to working on the combination. But he had not started such operation be fore he was compelled to give it up as a bad job. A Light Collision About 9 o'clock Sunday evening, while the motor truck of the Gardner & Merseal garage was headed toward Flat River on Liberty street, in an an swer to a distress call, Roscoe Wood ward in his Ford Roadster with two companions, attempted to pass with out siirnalinir. or if a slirnal was given it was not heard by W. A. Gardner,,! lwho was driving -th Iruefc '. t As" a consequence of lack of room to pass, the Ford necessarily collided with the truck, to its own detriment. At first it was thought the roadster was very seriously impaired, but it soon continued on its way under its own power, and a' thorough examina tion later disclosed but little damage, beyond crushed mud guards. None of the occupants were injured. Off for a Vacation Early this morning The Times edi tor and family left in their car for a two weeks vacation, which will be spent driving through this State, Ok lahoma and Arkansas.

Sidelights On the Primary Election Many county candidates, both Dem os ratic and Republican, were sorely disappointed with the story of the ballots. . , .' A complete tabulation of the votes in St. Francois county, for both the dominant parties, from each voting precinct, will be found on the second page of The Times. Judge J. H. Orten made a thorough and telling campaign. In fact he made practically house to house so-, (icitation for votes, and his election over strong opposition indicates thai he is some campaigner. , .- Philip Cole made a most commenda ble race in securing the nomination for Prosecuting Attorney setting a pace that killed all opposition. He ran 552 votes ahead of his nearest competitor, Judge Tucker. The indications as The Times goes to press is that David M. Tesreau, of Madison county, has defeated I. N. Thrclkeld, of this county, for the Re publican Judicial nomination. . While the returns are not complete regarding the Democratic nomination in this district, the- information at hand is that Dr. J. Scott Wolff, of Fes- tus, is the winner in that race, The tabulated returns from Tues- day's primary election, which appears on the second page of this paper, should be preserved. They carry much information that will prove to be val uable for reference in the future. "Bill" Bruett ran like a thorough bred in his race for Constable of St. Francois Township. Notwithstanding the fact that he had five Democratic opponents in the field, he outdistanced the combined vote of any two of them. . The result of the primary has doubt less left a number of sore spots among the defeated candidates. But all are doubtless .good . party men and will soon forget and forgive, and continue to fight, the. battles of the party as they have in the past, ' ti, i - ) .There were but three Rerhliin n- nbuncenwmitafeThr'TiBiiis, but-teachr one of those three were successful in carrying the Republican vote of the county. I. N. Threlkeld was one of the three, and while it now appears that he has been defeated in the dis trict, he carried St. Francois county bv something like 600 majority over his competitor, David M. Tesreau. We are simply giving thip information as a fact. You can draw your own con clusions. In the race for Democratic County Committeeman for St. .Francois coun- ty there was an interesting race be tween C. A, Tetlev. Mayor of Farm ington, and J. C Watson. While nei ther candidate did much personal work, their friends made the .fight for them. The total vote was: Tetlev. 860; Watson, 543; Tetley's majority, 327. It is thought the successful can didate will fill that position with the same efficiency that he has the office of Mayor. If that is true, then there can be no complaint among good Democrats. While Breckinridge Long carried St. vFrancois county by about 1.000 majority almost two to one against Senator Reed, it did not foretell the result of that race throughout the State, as the senator has evidently won the nomination by a few thou sand plurality. Such a result ap peared to be impossible to many Dem ocrats, up to the closing of the polls. That Senator Reed is a fighter, all must now admit. He turned what ap peared to many as certain and over whelming defeat into victory. The 1 result again proves that the Ameri can people love a fighter.
