WHAT WEEDS DO TO CROPS.
THE BREAD OF LIFE.
Break thou the breud of life,
Dear l/ord, to me;
Ah thou didst brink the loaves
Beside the sea;
Beyond the sacred page
I seek thee, Lord:
My spirit pants for thee,
O living word!
Bless thou the truth, dear Lord,
To me—to me—
As thou (lit!si bless tlie bread
Then shall nil bondage eeaso,
All fetters fall;
And 1 shall find my peace,
—Mary A. Lathbury.
Bays the Kansas Agricultural Col-
The ragweed, common In eastern
Kansas, removes from the soil 14.6
pounds of nitrogen and 3 pounds of
phosphoric, acid for each ton of
weeds, while tho same weight of
wheat In grain and straw removes
only 12.2 pounds of nitrogen and 22.4
pounds of phosphoric aeld. One ton
of wheat Is equivalent to a 18 bushel
Some weeds show even a more
striking comparison than ragweeds.
The plant food used by weeds is
taken from the growing crop when
the two are growing in competition In
tho same field. The only suro way of
retaining this plant food for the farm
crops is by controlling the growth of
Not only do weeds use the plant
food needed by the farm crops, but
they also rob the soil of largo quan-
tities of moisture. The leaf growth
of most weeds is large and henc«
evaporates a large amount of water.
Plan to cultivate the soil so the
growth of weeds will be as small as
possible and thus Insure larger yields
and greater profits.

Governor Hobby has not been hog
wild over education, but Ills adminis-
tration has been a truer friend to
education than any previous admin-
istration In the history of the state.
A more rocent evidence of this fact
is reflected in tho raising of tho
echolastic apportionment from its
previous high level of $8.50 last year,
to $14.50 for the coming term of
school. The increased apportion-
ment will mean tho acquisition of an
additional $85,000 for the approach-
ing school year for Collin county.

of the governor feel proud.
According to the Dallas Journal
Thomas B. Love, national commit-
teeman from Texas, and Mrs. Cone
Johnson of Tyler national cominittee-
voman, with other Texans who were
delegates to the Sh.n Francisco con-
vention, will attend the notification of
James M, Cox of his nomination for
President by the Democrats, to be
held at Dayton Aug. 7. Mrs. Nonie
B. Mahoney of Dallas will attend as
a member from Texas of the notifi-
cation committee. Clarence Merrltt
of McKinney Is the other member
from this state of the committee. R.
J3. Huff of Wichita Falls ajid Miss
Margie Neal of Cartilage are mem-

There Is considerable Interest in the
community exhibit feature for the
county fair to be held October 4, 5 and
6. Secretary Browder of the Chamber
of Commerce said Monday, and he is
expecting a number of communities in
the county to enter. A suitable prize is
to be provided for the best exhibit, ac-
cording to the Denton Record-Chron-
icle. Secretary Browder and Assistant
Secretary A. L. Scott are devoting
much of their time to arrangements
for the fair this fall, and farmei'3 over
the county are displaying Interest In
Its success, they report. Work on the
premium list and catalogue is now
well under way and they are to be out
some time next month. The fair is to
have two important divisions this
year—agriculture and livestock. Suit-
able quarters for both departments arc
being arranged and every effort is
being made to make this the mopt
successful fair ever held here. No fair
has been he'd for the past two years,
the exhibits having been discontinued
in 1918 because of the war conditions.
A Collin County Advisory Board to

Every Collin county farmer should
raise his own meat, If he does no
more. Cattle, hogs and sheep all do
well and every farmer—-either tenant
or landlord, who really desires to do
so, can raise his own meat supply at
a very little additional expense. In
fact, some surplus meat and lard
should be sold every year to help
swell the proceeds from every farm.
Cattle and hogs both are showing
a decrease in numbers this year as
compared with laBt year. The falling
off in hogs amounts to ten per cent
and In cattle to twenty-two per cent
In tho United States. This will likely
cause a shortage in moat production
that will greatly affect the market.
The population of the earth is in-
creasing. its meat supply should keep
pace with this increase.

pedestrians by tho dust raised by
your swiftly passing car? The sins
of omission are as great as the sins
of commission. One may not do any-
thing wrong, and still he may never
do anything good. It is a wise thing
to have a little credit in doing good
each day. As one does for others,
the habit grows, and from It comea
happiness and contentment."
With each political campaign comes
some bitterness, some unpleasant
things in most every instance but
there Is another side to these cam-
paigns. Here in Collin county there
are candidates who have won their
races and are thankful for the com-
pliments of the people and for the
trust placed in them, and then there
are those who went down in defeat
who made a good showing and who
surprised people by the strength they
developed. It Is true that we hear
much about the unpopular side of the
candidate's life but we sometimes
j'oiget to consider tho*. while there
a'e a few who Abu *4 their character
there are also those who sing the
praises of their virtues. In a politi-
cal campaign we find not only the un-
favorable but we also find the good

so generously known were It not for
