Destroy the Mosquitoes.
The best farmers have planted
their cotton in rows wide enough
apart so that the sun can get to it,
and by cultiyating until the bolls
begin to open it is thought the
yield of cotton will be increased
By the abondonment of New
Chwang by the Russian army the
gateway to Manchuria has been
closed to the business world. This
will, as long as that port is block-
aded, seriously interfere with ex-
ports to that country, and will fall
heaviest on the cotton export trade.
The farmer who keeps live stock
to consume the grain and hay pro-
duced on his farm, sells beef, pork,
mutton, wool cream or butter,
poultry and eggs. These are all
finished products from the farmer's
point of yiew, and all of them car-
ry all the profits that it is possible
to get out of farm products.
While cotton probably will al-
ways be the leading crop grown in
this state still that by no means
follows that productions in other
directions will not be large. The
one crop idea in Texas is dead,
and a diversification of crops will
henceforth be the rule. Corn,
wheat, oats, rice, hay, garden, or-
chard and dairy products will be
produced in the future in greater
quantities than ever before. Texas
of course, will maintain her lead
iu the growing of cotton, and she
will also lead in the growing of
other crops as well.
When you carry flour across the
room hold a basin of pie tin un-
der the handful instead of sifting
it all the way from the pantry to
the stove or table. Or better still,
take what you need in a basin and
save all the waste and also the
trail of white on the floor.—Farm
The following article on the des-
truction of mosquitoes was embodi
ed in an address delivered by State
Health Officer George R. Tabor at
the conference of local health offi-
cers in Austin March 31, and which
was printed in pamphlet form for
distribution. The Heraldwas fay-
ored with copies and believes that
every person living in South Texas
should wite and secure one as it
contains invaluable adyice concern-
ing yellow fever and the best meth-
ods of combatting it:
The United States Department
ot Agriculture last year issued a
bulletin on the destruction of mos-
quitoes, which is reproduced here
and which should be placed in the
hands of every person in Texas for
"You are responsible for the
mosquitoes in your own house and
dooryard. Read the rules carefully:
ul. Mosquitoes breed only in
water; usually fresh, standing wat-
er in artificial places.
"2. Mosquitoes occur in the vi-
cinity in which they breed. Invas-
ions from long distance are except-
"3. The young mosquitoes or
'Sviggler" lives in water at least
ten or twelye days.
''4. Although the wigglers live
in water, they must come frequent-
ly to the surface to breathe.
"5. Coal oil on the surface of
the water prevents the wigglers
"6. Destroy the breeding places
and you will destroy the mosqui-
"7. Empty the water from all
tubs, buckets, cans, flower pote,
and yases once everv forty-eight
"8. Fill or drain all pools,
ditches and yarious excavations, as
postholes left unfilled, etc.
"9. Change regularly every day
all water needed in chicken coops,
"10. ' Treat with coal oil all
standing water which can not be
screened or drained (one ounce of
oil will coyer fifteen square feet of
surface). The oil does hot affect
the water for use if the vater is
drawu from below.
"ll. Put wire netting oyer
cisterns, wells and tanks of water
in every-day use.
"12. Places in which it is un-
desirable to piape oil, such as wat-
ering troughs for stock, lily ponds,
etc., can be kept free of the wig-
glers by putting in gold fish. The
nymphs of dragon flies and tadpoles
of frogs alto feed on wiggles.
"13. See that the plumbing a-
bont the place is in perfect order.
Prevent leakage of pipes or clog-
ging of valves.
"14. Inspect all cesspools and
see that the covers are absolutely
"15. Clean away all weeds,
grass and bushes about the ditches,
ponds and other breeding places,
since these afford a hiding place
for the adult mosquitoes.
"16. Clean up vacant lots and
back yards of all cans, tins, bottles
"17. First do away with or
treat all places .where mosquitoes
are known to breed, and then be-
gin work on places where they
-'18. As a citizen of your com-
munity you should feel a personal
responsibility for the destiuction
of the mosquitoes in your district
and seek to co-operate with your
neighbors in the work of doing
away with breeding places. In-
spect and treat vith coal oil, gut-
ters, culyerts, ditches, manholes,
catching basins, etc., along the
roadside. Manhole covers should
"19. Where oil is applied to
standing water it must be distri-
buted evenly over the surface.
Use a hand syringe, or, if the area
is great, a knapsack sprayer.
"20. Houses should be cleared
of all winged mosquitoes by the
burning of insect powder. The
mosquitoes will fall to the floor,
and should be collected and burned.
"21. Relief in any community
or district depends entirely upon
the co-operation of the members
of the community."

Farm lands in the Southwest in-
vite-homeseekers. Such property
is as cheap now as it ever will be,
and the soil is as fertile as that in
any other section of* the United
States. It but awaits the plow to
yield a rich harvest and cause its
owner to aing a song of content-
ment which will echo around the
globe.—Farm and Ranch. -
Essentials in Successful
The weeks as they are passing
now is the time to paye the way
for good spring litters, and this
may be accomplished by a sensible
system of feeding, combined with
some common sense care, says
Farmer Stockman. Without at^
tempting to enumerate all the
items that would be included in a
good system of feeding and proper
care, there ara few that are of yital
importance which no man can af-
ford to lose sight of,
In feeding one should aim to use
a considerable variety of food. In
the corn belt this would ordinarily
include some shorts, a little bran,
some corn meal and also a small
proportion of oil meal, and so
much the better if to all this could
be added a little tankage. Those
who ara in a position to use skim
milk to mix these meals in making
a slop are specially fortunate, al-
though good results may be ob-
tained without the milk. Not only
do the foods mentioned furnish
the constituents required by brood
sows in a satisfactory manner, but
after all, a ration may be compoun-
ded in this way without being so
very much more expensive than
straight corn. It will be a little
higher, we admit, but the extra
cost is not a matter to be consider-
ed in yiew of the better returns
that will result from using a varie-
ty of flesh forming foods.
Next in importance to the use
of a proper variety of food con-
taining a large supply of protein
is the matter of comfortable quar-
ters. This refers to comfortable
sleeping as well as feeding quar-
ters. Sow should not be kept in
close, stuffy pens for any consider-
able length of time, and if one is
obliged to keep them in such quar-
ters at night they should have ac-
cess to a yard in the day time and
should be induced by the system
of feeding employed to take con-
siderable exercise. Where sows
are fat and heavy it is a good plan
to scatter some straw over the
yards and feed the corn part of
the ration among the straw. They
will root around for hours, and
this experience will build up the
nauscul&r tissue and pave the way
for a successful farrowing period.
* It is not a good plan to allow
many sows to occupy the same
sleeping quarters, because they
pile up and necessarily breathe
over and over again a polluted at
mosphere. This is a very fruitful
source of weak pigs. It is an easy
matter to temporize partitions so
that this piling-up process may be
ayoided, and it will pay to do the
Sows should be treated kindly
at all times, and some little at-
tempt should be made to accustom
them to being handled. If they
are a little wild at first their fears
may be overcome if sensible at-
tempts are made daily to show
them that you are not their enemy,
but their friend. To haye a sow
sufficiently docilo to be handled
with out her exhibiting fear may
make the difference between losing
and saving a whole litter of pigs
at far rowing time, so that the re-
sult more than justifiies the smali
effort involved on the part of the
feeder in getting well acquainted
with every sow.
