Early plowing and frequent working of the seedbed helps to retain soil moisture. A light harrowing or disk ing early In the spring cultivates the wheat and forms a soil mulch that pre vents the escape of winter rains so needed by the wheat when filling and ripening. Experiment stations have found that wheat, well supplied with available plant food or growing on rich soils, can produce a bigger crop with less moisture than It can on a poor, soil or on one not well supplied with available plant food. Wheat on rich soils continues to grow even If the supply of moisture is scanty. Sup plying available plant food to wheat enables It to produce larger yields on the same amount of water. This Is especially Important when the ralu fall Is below normal. Organic matter holds water like a sponge and releases It to the wheat for arermlnatlon.

The approval of a company command er is' not sufficient. " The question of the shipment ' of parcels to France first carae to the at tention of the war department when the commanding general of the expe ditionary forces cabled that conges tion of such articles had reached such a point that French railroads were unablo to handle the loadr A board appointed by the secretary of war and the postmaster general examined 5,000 sacks of parcelpost mail, and found that the articles being sent not only, in the main, were absolutely un necessary, but undesirable. The in vestigation showed that the amount of such mail had reached a total of 500,000 pounds a week, and was stead ily increasing. Relatives and friends, according to a recent statement by the war de partment, will find they often can do a greater service to soldiers by send ing them money for the purchase of articles in France than by forwarding the articles. Tobacco is now being supplied as part of the army rations, and merchandise of nearly all kinds may now be purchased m France through the huge general store es tablished by the Quartermaster corps at lower prices than charged by retail ers here. Pro-Germanigm We hear so much about various brands of Pro-Germanismi these days that some times we get just a little bit d'sinterested when some new al leged piece of Pro-Germanism news is floated. This matter may be traced back to a carefully laid plan of German spies and agents in this country, who realize the fact that new ideas and new inventions catch almost instant favor with the people of th s nation. It is a fact that we are apt to go wild over some man who has recently, been discovered to be possessed of greater ability alone: certain lines than his fellows. We read an advertisement of what a cer tain food will do for us and immed iately try it and whether or not the food is of any value or not, it usually enjoys a short lived popularity which is astounding. It is the same way with new ideas and new matters com ing up in everyday life throughout the United States. The present time is. however, one when every loyal citizen must double his guard to see that the ideas which are put up to him are all American and that they do not come from Pro- German sources., Many a person has within the past two years "join ed" some society which had for its aims and obiects the highest ideals, only to be discovered later on that the membership of the society stood for everything Pro-German and in sidiously against this country. ror the above reasons every Amer ican citizen whose patriotism is of the right kind wfll terrain from taking up with any of the new fan cied orders or societies formed for some purpose or omer, unless mey absolutely know the reason of the so ciety. Sign no paper, petition, pray er or any other document handed you by anyone unless you know thorough ly the motives of the movement and then, of course, they must be pat riotic through and through. A number of Pro-German schemes have been floating around recently, within this and other states, which, while not directly attacking the gov ernment or being openly for the en emy, had as their aim and object, the dividing of the mind and attention of the people of this nation, , thereby keeping their minds off from the measures necessary for the winning of the war, through the fact that the so-called society and its aims should come first, the war, government and other vitally necessary matters sec ond. . . , : ; . Remember, that in union there is strength, that there is the strongest kind of. union among the enemies of this nation -and that with discord among our own people, their victory is more likely than if the people of the United States are united on one common cause the winning of the war. .: OFIOGAUUTEREST Some People We Know, and We Will Profit Hy Hearing About Them.

The Hessians were purely mercenary soldiers, and had no love for the cause for which they were fighting. Their career as fighting men ended lUddeDly on a certain Christmas eve when Washington crossed the Delaware. As soldiers the were not a very great success, but the damage which they did to America did not end with their capture at Trenton. Unknowingly they Introduced Into this country the Hessian fly, which was destined to become our greatest wheat pest. According to tradition, this fly, or rather the larvae of the fly, was brought to this country In the straw which the Hessian soldiers used for bedding for both man and animal. It found congenial conditions in America, multiplied enormously, .and now infests practically all wheat producing regions. The annual loss due to its ravages must be far up in the millions, tind there Is no present prospect of eradication. , . The Fly Lives Over Winter in the New Seeding of Wheat The fly Itself is very small scarcely a quarter, of an Inch in length, and as for looks well, it looks like a fly. Eggs for the spring brood are laid early in the neason. The small grub goes down to the base of the plant and lives on the plant tissues, and later on goes Into a cocoon or chrysalis form. Emerging from this it lays eggs again on the fall-sown wheat, Just as soon as the wheat gets above the surface of the ground. It I this second brood that Is so destructive, and which forms the "flaxseed" form seen on Infested wheat. Seed Wheat Late. The time of emergence of this second brood of egg-laying flies Is fixed by nature. If the farmer can only foretell this, and delay deeding the fly will go off looking for other pastures, and may even die without having found oppor tunity for laying its eggs. But the Weather Is Against Late Seeding. Right here Is where late seeding to control the fly Is against the best farm practice. Winter may set In early and destroy the young plants. Unless the wheat has made a good growth before the ground freezes np, Its chance of surviving the winter is slim. We must delay seeding or the fly gets the v.heat. We mist have good growth or winter gets It. What Is to be done! Experience and actual experiment has shown that by using fertilizer wisely and. carefully not only can late-sown wheat be made to catch up to early sown and thus the Hessian fly be outwitted and the weather man fooled all at one operation ; hut at the same time the crop can be greatly increased. This adds to farm profits so that It may be that the Hessian fly is a blessing la disguise at least to those farmers who through its ravages are enabled to teach themselves Mtho better way." LATE-SOWN FERTILIZED WHEAT "CATCHES UP" WITH THAT SOWN EARLY HEl'J PENSION - DID- PROVIDES ' FOR UJCREASES OFFICERS TO GET ONE-HALF PAY DEPRIVED OF SOLDIERS HOME PRIVILEGES WHILE DRAWING PENSION. , Congressman Joseph W. Fordney has received a letter from commis sioner C. M. Saltzaber of the bureau of pensions outlining and detailing the several pension increases granted by the amendment to the Sherwood pension law of May 11, 1912, enacted June 10, this year. By the amendment material in creases are granted to the veterans of the civil war in accordance with the period of thoiir sifrVl-xv Soldiers and sailors who have been receiving pensions under some other law than that of 1912 will have to file appli iations in order to rece.ve the benefits of the new law, but for the others the increase goes into effect automat ically. Belding veterans, of whom there are quite a number, will probably all benefit by the terms of the amend ment. They are waf ned to expect some delay in the effectiveness of the act, however, because there are 268,-' 000 pensioners on the list and the bureau will have its hands full for several weeks bring.ng them all un der the new. schedule. The letter to Mr. Fordney follows: "The act of June 10, 1918, amend ing the Sherwood pension law of May 11, 1912, provides the rate of $30 per month for soldiers and sailors of any age who served 90 days and less than six months during the civil war and were- honorably discharged and who are now receiving a lower rate. Those who are 72 years of age or over and who servea six months are entitled to receive $32 per mopth; those who served pne year, $35 per month; one and one-half years, $38 per month', and two years or over $40 per" month. These increases will be granted automatically and without appliction of any kind to the pension bureau, to all soldiers and sailors now pensioned under the act of May II, 1912, and who have attained the re quired age and served the necessary length, of time. "Soldiers and sailors who served during the civil war and are pension ed at lower rates under some other law, but who are entitled to pension under the act of May 11, 1912 will be required to file an application under that act in order to receive the bene fits of the new law. . "The pension bureau will make these allowances with all the dispatch possible under existing conditionsA special force for the adjustment of cases within the provisions of the new law has been organized, which will handle these cases exclusively. It should be borne in mind by those con cerned that there are now nearly 268,000 pensioners under the act of May 1, 1912 and all are urged to ex ercise patience and consideration. Whije every effort will be made to hasten this jwork there will be no avoidable interference with the pro gress of claims now on file or here after filed under other laws. A spec ial effort w.ll be made not to interfere with the adjudication of widows'' claims. , , ' . , , "It will be wholly impracticable to make any payments at the increased rate on July 4, 1918; but it'is hoped that payments due, August 4, 1918, may be made at t!.e rate provided by the new law. It will not be neces sary to write the bureau about these .ncreases. t Letters of inquiry will simply delay the work of making al lowances. ,"-, "No attorneys' fee will be "allowed or paid for services in securing in crease of penso n under the act of June 10, 1918."
