Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Williams
and family were called to Bul-
lard Sunday to be at the fu-
neral of MVs. Bettie Roark,
mother of Mrs. Williams,
whose death occurred on Sat-
urday. Mrs. Roark had only
been ill a few hours and the
news of her death came as a
profound shock to her daugh-
ter and family. Their many
friends tender sympathy to
them in their lonely sad hour,
at mother and grandmother's
going.
Mr. and Mrs. Will Crosby

and Mrs. Gregg Crosby Sun-
day.
Mr. Wyatt, Mr. Simmons,
Miss Hilda Gant and the basket
ball girls of G. H. spent Satur-
day in Rusk.
Miss Jessie Kelly visited in
Nacogdoches Saturday.
Mir. and Mrs. Homer Town-
ly and family visited relatives
at Douglass Sunday.

Method
of Fertilizing Cotton
OUT of all the experimental work and farm
tests with cotton fertilizers daring the past
SO years, there has developed this one method,
«af<? and sure for cotton from North Carolina to
Texas. It meets every need of the crop for plant
food; reduces every risk; is economical; and guar-
antees you maximum return on your fertilizer
investment. And it's so simple—
At Planting Time (/or ore« acrc)
SO to 100 lbs. Chile&n Nitrate of Soda.
25 to 75 lbs. muriate of potash.
300 to 400 lbs. superphosphate.
This gives you enough phosphate and potash; i
the Chilean Nitrate gives the crop the best pos-
sible start and encourages maximum growth
during early spring.
30to40 Days Attar Planting (for one acrc)
ISO to 200 lbs. Chilean Nitrate of Soda side-
dressing.
This gives the crop greater vigor and resistance
to pests and disease; makes bigger bolls and
carries more of them through to earlier matur-
ity; increases yields and improves quality.
Mr. and Mrs. Sherman Davis
of Alto visited with Mrs.
Davis* parents, Mr. and Mrs.
Lee Ash, Sunday.
Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Goff
spent Saturday night and Sun-
day with Mr. and Mrs. A. B.
Goff.
Mr. and Mlrs. Massey and
children with Mr. and Mrs.
Finn McNaughtin, spent the
week-end with Mrs. Maggie
McNaughtin at Turney.
Mr. and Mrs. Frank Ingle-
dow of Lufkin were week-end
visitors of W\r. and Mrs. Allen
Jeter and Mrs. Chas. Murphy.
Mrs. A. Magrill of Tyler was
their guest for the week.
Mr. and Mrs. Joe Crusetur-
ner and baby were Sunday
afternoon guests of Joe's par-
ents, Mr. and Mrs. Geo.
Cruseturner.
Mr. and Mrs. Claud Ash
spent Sunday in the home of
Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Mar-
shal.

Tint's all there U to It I The important part of
die recipe is the nitrogen. Chilean Nitrate can
make a good fertilizer out of • poor one; will
make a good fertilizer better. A little Chilean
Nitrate at planting time and plenty of it later as
aide dressing jost about takes the gamble oat of
cotton farming.
If yoa cannot find oat whether your planting-
time fertiliser contains Chilean Nitrate; the way
to make sure is to bay fertiliser low in nitrogen
and mix Chilean Nitrate with it at the rate of 200
to 400 lbs. per ton. In this way yon are certain of
enough of the best nitrogen under yoor crop.

WATCHING THE
GROUNDHOG
I Old Father Time has a way
I of mowing down weeks and
j months in a hurry, and here we
i ere back to the time when the
i men who make our weather
| forecasts take a back seat while
| the groundhog makes his.
Customs change, but not this
one. There will be just as
many people around Alto won
dering this time "if the ground-
hog saw his shadow" as there
ever was before on February
2. Aind this community is not
an exception to the rule—the
groundhog's movements will be
watched and inquired about in
every state in the union. Older
citizens accept it as gospel that
if he sees his shadow we are
dut for six more weeks of win-
ter weather. And even though
the younger generation of
weather sharks wink an eye
when discussing the subject
they, too, always manage to
cock the other eye skyward on
Feb. 2 to see if the sun is going
to shine.
There may or may not be
anything to the belief thaS the
little animal can forecast >or a
period of six weeks ahead; we
don't know and we don't want
to get into an argument by ven-
turing an opinion, since senti
ment is pretty well divided.
But this we do know, that if the
groundhog can offer as many
alibis for missing it as offered
by some of our local fore-
casters then he is entitled to
qualify for the Ananias Club.

Now that the government is
about ready to start taking a
census to find out how many
people there are in the U. S.,
Alto residents will be interest-
ed in a few advance predic-
tions. Louis Truesdell, who
will have charge of the census,
estimates the count tp be taken
starting April 1 will show a to-
tal of 122,000,000 people, or
17,000,000 more than we had
in the census of 1920, He also
estimates that of this number
46,680,000, or 89 per cent,
support themselves and the
rest of the population. And
while on the face of it that
doesn't speak so well for our
love of work, bear in mind that
it includes the aged and infirm,
sick and crippled, and all de-
pendents of whatever nature.
Also remember that, according
to population, this is a larger
percentage of actual workers
than any other nation on earth
can boast. We know we're a
great nation in a lot of ways,
but this new census is going to
tell us many things we never
dreamed of along this line. It
ought to prove one of the most
interesting things in the entire
| year.
What some of the younger
set around Alto really need is a
car with t*o-horns, one to wy
"Look out" and the other to sky
"1 told you so!"
Not all of the people who are
hard to talk to are d^af. Some
of them are just dumb.
WHO IS TO BLAME?
This is a true story that hap-
pened in a town in Iowa.
A man entered a store and
made a small purchase. As the
merchant was wrapping it up
for him the customer pointed to
a package under his arm and
said:
I wonder if you would mind
wrapping this up a little better
for me. It got kinda damaged
in shipping?"
"Not at all," said the mer-
chant. "What have you been
getting?"
"Some kind of patented salt
I've been reading about in the
farm magazines," replied the
customer. "It was announced
in an advertisement the other
day that they had just got in a
carload and were selling it at a
special price in 10-pound lot, so
I sent for some to try out. It's
something new, I guess, and
I'v.e never seen any of it, but I
thought I'd try it out on this
special offer."
, "What did it cost ypu?"
queried the storekeeper. The
ciBtomer told him.
*"Huh!" snorted the store-
keeper. "Special, my eye!
They just hooked you, that's
all. I have it right here and
sell it every day at ten cents a
pound less and you don't have
to take it in ten-pound lots
either."
"The deuce you say!" re-
turned the customer. "Don't
that beat all ? I've been read-
ing about it in the farm papers
quite a while and thinking I'd
try some, but I didn't know
where to get it until I read it in
an ad the other day, and then I
sat right down and sent in my
order."
"Better try buying it at home
next time," answered the pro-
prietor a little acidly, as he
handed him the re-wrapped
package. "You'd saved a dol-
lar on is:."
