There are dates in the fall, however, when the fly do?s little dam- Hge These fly-free periods »re shown i on the accompanying msp. There is no remedy for the fly once it has gained a foothold in the wheat fieid. The control consists in keeping it out ,and, using the fly-frey dates fer planting will aid greatly-in this, Frnnfion says. Some growers'confuse the’.Hessian fly with the wheat joint wnrii, straw worm and other peats. Thij, pesi is chiefly injurious to wheat though it may cause some damage to barley and rye. Oats are never dantaged by this particular insect. It does its damage by maggots feed ing between the leaf sheaf and the stem. Plants are killed or seriously In jured and the yield consequently re duced. The small, so-called "flaxseed” noticed on the wheat stems are the resting stages of the Kessian Fly. The adult flies come from these flaxseeds. The fly is very small, resembling a mosquito. Seven other aids to control will help in keeping down infestation of Hes sian fly, in addition to the one im portant thing of planting on fly-free dates These, as given by Mr. Brannon I are as follows: I "Practice crop rotation. Do not sow : wheat on wheat stubble if it is pos ! sible to avoid doing so. “Plow under all infested stubble, when possible, soon after harvest. “Destroy all volunteer wheat where i possible by harrowing, disking, plow- TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 27 198* THOUSANDS VISIT NEW FORD EXHIBIT Show Closes Tonight With Full Showing of Fords and Talking Picture Several thousand persona have visit ed the open-air automobile show be ing sponsored by Clements Motor Company on the Curb Market lot back of the post office, it waa announced today.

The trouble about feeding a man be fore you reform him is that after he is fed he docs not want to be reform ed. ing or some other method.
