Raising Toatatoea Far Coaaaaerelal
Seventy-five girls of the county have
already joined the Canning Club, ac

West of Calera the blackleg got a
little start 'among boiiio cattle, and
might have resulted seriously if not
stopped by vaccination. L. E. Watklns
acclnated nine head of Jersey cattle
nnd J. W. Damron, living east of Wat
klns a little piece, vaccinated seven
head. The vaccination Is done every six
months for two eurs, which It Is be
lieved makes the animal forever Im
mune from the disease.
Cheeklag Hog Main With Crude OH
Tom Tlllery, who lives four miles
Worth of Mead found a sort of itch or
hog mange among his stock, which
seemed to be getting the better of
them. Upon expert advice Mr. Tlllery
gave fifty head of hoga a crude oil
dip. This treatment Is found to cure
the hogs of the mange, which If not
cured will ruin the animal.
Sold Twenty Hoga T Cooperative
The Cooperative Live Stock Develop
ment Association of Oklahoma City
has bought twenty head of fine two
year old gilts from E. C. Terrell, to
be used for breeding purposes by the
association. The stock was raised on
the fine hog ranch owned by Mr. Ter-i
rell just south of Albany, which Is
operated by H. WJsely.
I'nlng Sweet Cloter Far Paatare aad
C. W. Scruggs, who occupies the
Frank Lewis farm five miles north
west of Durant has found sweet clover
very profitable for fattening hogs
and for general pasture purposes. Five
acres of It, seeded a few years ago,
furnished pasture for fifteen head of
hogs, besides the calves and work
stock, and then goes to seed. The hogs
fatten to fine condition with no other
feed than the clover. Mr. Scruggs
is planting twelve more acres this
year which he will use for hay.
K .1. Mldklff who lives next to
Scruggs. Is also planning to plant sev
eral acres for pasture
Maklnic Demon! rat loa qa ".prlag
Jess Boyd, who lives four miles
northeast of Durant is making a dem.
omitratlon on spring Barley this year
under approved rules. He is planting
five acres to this seed, which is drilled
In to the ground already plowed, using
a bushel and a half to the acre.

Should We Have "Humps"
in front of Credit Grocery Stores
and Oil Stock Peddlers?
TO FORCE AVTOISTS
TO SLOW DOWN
Des Moines, Iowa, Jan. 31.
Speeding autoista in Iowa will
go up in the air at railroad
crossings if a bill introduced in
the State Senate today becomes
law. It provides for "humps"
in highways a short distance
each side of the tracks and is
for the purpose of making auto
mobile drivers approach slowly
and thus reduce chance of acci
dents. The humps would be of con
crete full width of the road
way, six inches high and with a
10-inch slant, placed from 50 to
iuu feet from the railroad
track. Durant Democrat.
Great many folks get to liv
ing to fast because thev can
buy it on time, the deeper they
get in debt the faster they live
and the faster they live the
deeper they get in debt.
Why don't you at least try
paying cash for your groceries,
pay less and pay as you go.
Writing in Durant Daily
Democrat Feb. 7th, Mr. W. E.
Creath, Pres. and Gen. Mgr. of I
the Blue Oil Co., who has just
struck oil in Bryan county, '
says "I believe it wise at this
time to warn those who do hot
know the business to stay out." '
' Every time we see a derrick
going up Tom, Dick and Harry
and everybody expects to be

night, but about all most of 'em ge"t is

breeches" setting around on drilling
timbers waiting for their "gusher to
Same thing is true of "Prune Ped

the conclusion that quiet (?) meditation and peaceful associa
