The Etension Service is recom-
mending a new and very simple
method of keeping cured meats.
It is by the use of refined cotton-
seed oil and the advantages of it
are as follows: -
1. It retards mold growth 100
per cent. •
2. It -reduces shrinkage, which
ultimately means a hard unpalata-
ble piece of meat.
3. It reduces contamination by
flies and skippers and veritiin 100
4. Oil, being liquid^ makes it very
practicable to alice pieces from
large chunk and then return un-
used piece for keeping perfect in-
- Procedure for its use is as fol-
" l.-Pack meat tightly in contain-
er to reduce amount of oil to cover
it . : i
8. The meat needs to be coveted
only about 1 inch.
5. Use of any kind of container
is satisfactory, crock beet, tin lard
cans very good, steel drum satis-
factory, wood barrels will work but
«35sorb some oil. "i—
4. It is advisable to cover con-
tainer for sanitary reasons.
5. Roughly speaking It will take
about 4 gallons for 100 pounds- of
cured meat. ... " . ."
Kinds of oil to use are as fol-
1. Good grade of cottonseed oil.
2. Peanut oil will work equally
8. Use only refined cottonseed
oil. This is because crude cotton-
seed oil will become more rancid
than a refined product.
4. If refined cottonseed oil can-
r- . I not be bought at. an oil mill close

of Rat Control
Given in County
FAIRKIELD, Feb. 3. (Sp) —
Four demonstrations on the
control of rats and gophers were
held In Freestone county on
Tuesday and Wednesday of last
week and a total of 45 persons
were present at these demonstra-
tions. Joe B. Lindsey of the U.S.
Department of Biological Survey
held the demonstrations in coop-
eration with J. W. Richards Jr.,
county agent. Due to the ex-
tremely bad weather a number
of persons were unable to attend
the meetings that were held at
Oscar Johnsons farm in the Dew
community, J. T. Bond's farm in
the Freestone community. A. B.
Carter's farm in the Kirven com-
munity and A. H. Bass' farm in
the Steward's Mill community.
Gophers may be controlled by
trapping or by poisoning. When
trapping the traps should be set
in the gopher's main run rather
than at the mounds thrown up by
them. Dig a hole about 8 Inches
square In the main run and set
a trap in each side of it.
When poisoning, strychnine al-
kaloid powder is used, % ouce to
a half gallon of cut-up sweet po-
tatoes. The potatoes should be
cut into cubes about ft inch
square and 2 Inches long. If the
cuts are not long enough the go-
j>her may carry them to his nest
without eating any of them un-
til late in the spring. Find the
gopher's main run by using a
sharp stick and working from the
mound. Drop one cube of the poi-
soned bait in the main run.
Red squill is recommended for
killing rats. It is slower to kill
(although it is sure) and there
fore gives the rats time to get
out of the building before they
die. In addition it is only poison-
ous to rats and mice.
The important thing about rat
poisoning is to get them to eat
the bait. There is no "best bait."
Best results are obtained by the
use of several baits all to be used
the same night. Ground, fresh
meat is good, especially rabbit
meat. Use 1 ounce of red squill
to one pound of ground meat.
Other baits such as ground bread,
baked sweet potato, fruits, etc.,
should be used. Use lots of bait
and poison all buildings the same
Red Squill is a poison made
from the plant and is put up by
companies and sold under pat-

London s Worry
LONDON, Feb. (U.R)—Immin-
ent threat of a meat famine con-
fronted 8,500,000 persons in the
London area today as 8,200 men
struck for higher pay at Smith-
field market, greatest "dead
meat'' market in the world.
The strikers handle the meat
for London and an area 100
miles around it—more than 3,-
000,000 pounds a day—and are
confident that they can paralyze
All entrances to the market
Evidence of the strike was
plain. Scores of meat van choked
side streets around the old Smith-
field area where Lord Mayor Sir
William Walworth killed Wat
Tyler, leader of the peasant's re-
bellion, in 1381. The branch rail-
way which runs under London
to the market was congested.
Four thousand "inside'' men
were immediately affected. They
demand a minimum wage of $20
(£4) a week, a 40-hour week, cer
tain overtime rates and a week's
holiday with pay a year.
These men were joined, in sym-
pathy, by the 4200 "pitchers"
who handle the meat as it comes

NRA IS CALLED
EVER ON BOOKS
WASHINGTON, Feb. S. (U.R)—
The NRA was "the greatest law

of the American republic," Gov.
George H. Earle of Pennsylvania,
told the United Mine Workers to-
day in a speech attacking "spe-
The governor also criticized
Alfred E. Smith's threat to bolt
the Democratic party in a speech
to the miners convention which
will later hear William Green, A,
F. of L. president, discuss the
question of craft unions versus
industrial unions. A move to
oust Green as delegate of the
United Miners wag defeated this
"Unconstitutional or not,"
Earle said, "the principle NRA
estbalished must and will be fol-
lowed by America in the days
"That principle was nothing
more than fair play established
nationally. It placed every state
on an equal footing. It was fair
to labor, and it was fair to in-
dustries in the various states."
The governor broadened his
attack to include Smith, the Lib-
erty League and sweat shops,
he said, "is by far the greatest
evil of our civilization. President
Roosevelt saw that. He not only
saw, he acted. The natioinal re-
covery act was his answer to the
challenge of the machine.
"Shall we have fair play thru
regulation of business and in-
dustry? I say we must have it if
our nation is to go forward. We
have had enough of sweat shops.
We have had enough of cruel and
merciless exploitation of workers
in mine and mill and factory.''

LAY PLANS TO
Climax of more than ten years
efforts, the X-All Highway Asso-
ciation is planning a notable cele-
bration early in March marking
the completion of the paving of the
popular Dallas-Houston road near
near Thornton and Kosse.
A delegation of civic leaders of
Kosse, including Gus Stewart, C. L.
Knox, W. R. Hammond and John
W. Young, called on E. L. Connal-
ly, president of the Groesbeck
Chamber of Commerce, and then
met with a committee of the Mexia
Chamber of Commerce Tuesday at
L. L. Steele, of the Mexia com-
mittee, was asked to go to Austin
Wednesday to confer with Gover-
nor James V. Allrod and htate
Highway Commissioners, inviting
them to attend, and a date will be
set that is suitable to the officials.
Also meeting with the Kosse dele-
gation were C. A. Chambers, W.
W. Barnett and B. H. Broilos.
Tentative plans call for a barbe-
cue for the visiting officials, offic-
ers'of the X-All highway asoscia-
tion, county officials along the
route and Chamber of Commerce
leaders, and others probably at the
new state highway roadside park,
between Kosse and Thornton. Ths
barbecue would be given by Thorn-
ton and Kosse, joined by the other
towns of Limestone county.
Ceremonies would include talks
by Governor Allred, State High-
way Chairman Harry Hines, and
others to a mass meeting at the
opening. A ribbon would be cut
permitting traffic to traverse the
newly paved strip.
With three days of fair weather
contractors will complete the pour-
ing of concrete on the final strip-
between Kosse and Falls county.
Two weeks more will find the road
in condition for travel.
The route —State Highway 14
from Dallas to Bremond and High-
way 0 from there on to Houston-
will be completely paved when this
strip is opened. There are several
short cuts being paved in Robert-
son county, tut the regular road is
in good condition save for the
curves in that county.
Plans are being made to adver-
tise the route to the state as the
"New" Dallas-Houston road. While
it. is the oldest route in the state,
it is newly paved. State officials
see a growing demand for the, road
which will pass Fort Parker, the
Mexia oil field, Texas A. M. Col-
lege, and other points of particu-
lar interest this year.

"Where is my wandering boy to-
night, This thought has doubtless
beat at the heart of every true
American mother. Especially the
mother who has tried, done her
best for that precious boy of hers.
A few nights ago my heart was
made sad at the groanings of some
one in front of my home. Calling
my husband to raise the window
near the front, my heart sank with-
ih me when I heard the pitiful
groaning of some mother's boy. I
quickly donned my coat, bonnet and
shoes, run across the pavement and
lo, there Is a ditch by the side of
the road was a well dressed young
man, groaning and vomiting. I
talked to him, told him I had come
to aid him In his distress, asked
him what I could do for him. He
cursed and said some ugly things.
I think he was unconscious. I wav-
ed my lantern in front of a car
coming toward me. The man stop-
ped, examined the boy and went to
town for aid. He was back in a
short while, carried the young man
to town. I asked them to please
carry the boy to a doctor first. For
he was a human if he was found in
a ditch and also some mother's boy
and I'm thinking of how she fairly
worshiped him and lived for him
alone and waited fondly for the
time her darling would be grown
and be her strong protection throu-
gh her declining years and how
those hopes have been filled with
fears and tears. I hope God will
speed the day when all temptation
will be taken away. There will be
no need to say:
" 'Thou be not with smiling lips
to youth that poison bowl. I hate
the cursed thing too much and
loathe it in my soul. I scorn the
hand that profers it. He is no
friend of mine. Oh, take the fear-
ful thing away and hide it from my
sight. I see within its rubyed
depths a deamon dark as night, and
from its fierce and unhallowed
touch, and from its fiery breath
springs dark and damning influ-
ence, and crime and shame and
"It's time American fathers and
mothers were waking up to their
duties. Some time he or she might
look at you through the iron bars
and say 'if you had controlled me,
I would not have been here, and if
your light had shined more bright-
ly I would not have lost the way.'
And, dear boy or girl, if your
mother and dad have tried and you
would not listen, beware. There
will be a message come speeding
over the wire, and alas the voice
will be still and folded on her
breast, the dear and loving hads
that oft have laid you down to rest
and the heart that you have tor-
tured with every throb made sore
will be tone bed by death's cold icy
hands to beat for you no more."
