A timely article on the subject
Of windbreaks from the pen of
Harvev C; Stiles horticulturist of
the Saint Louis Brownsville and
Mexico road is published in to
day's Herald. This article should
prove of special interest and value
"to people who are now engaged in
clearinsr land in South Texas for
agricultural purposes. Professor
Stiles suggests that belts of the na
tive timber running at right angles
to the prevailirg winds be preserv
ed in order to protect the tender
vegetation of crops which will be
(planted on the land thus cleared
and 'likewise to prevent the shifting
of the soil until rows of tall-grow
ing trees planted on the lee of such
belts can be raised to serve as wind
breaks. This idea commends it
-self to The Herald as one which
is worthy of the special considera
tion of land owners and planters in
general A perusal of . the article
in -..question will doubtless repay
the time-given it.
These are progressive times and
the farmer as well as everyone else
can improve on old methods by
studying the advanced teachings
of men who have ma'de. scientific
study of agriculture. When men
devote months and sometimes years
to patient and persevering research
and careful experiment the re-
sults of their work should be worth
something. Hence the subject of
dry-farming by which farmers
who have adopted it are raising
crops without irrigation and with
scant rainfall throughout a large
area of the West should commend
itself to the attention of the farm-
ers all over this region. Irriga-
tion is expensive and if good crops
can be produced without it a tre-
mendous saving would be made

To Retain Color In Cotton Goods
Delicate shades of cotton fabrics

be laundered and still be as pretty

lon of cold water wet the goods
thoroughly in this' wring dry and
hang m the shade. When thorough
ly dry they can be laundered. There
is no odor left from the use of the
turpentine. This method has been
tested time and again and always
with perfect results. Housekeeper.
What Foods Weigh.
It may be convenient to know
that one quart of flour weighs one
pound': a quart of cornmeal one
pound and two ounces; a quart of
best sugar one pound; a quart of
powdered white sugar one pound
and one ounce; a - quart of best
brown sugar one pound and two
ounces; that ten esgs weigh one
pound though this depends some
what on the size; sixteen large ta

Here is a variation of cranberry
jelly: Take off the stems and wash
half a cupful of raisins and boil
them in a cupful and three-quarters
of water until the water is reduced
to a cupful. Then add a pound of
sugar ana a quart of cranberries
and boil fifteen minutes. Strain
out the skins and seeds and turn
into a mold.
A Good Cement.
For mending hard substances like
metal or glass there is nothing more
satisfactory than melted alum. Sim-
ply melt the alum over an intense

ed was mended in this my forty
