THE ELECTRIFICATION OF THE
The Industry not yet completed of
the greatest Importance to the busi-
ness Interests in Bryan only second
to the construction of the railroad
Into the bottom is the electrification
of the College line. The esabllshment
of dependable frequent service to the
.college would mean from fifteen to
twenty families moving at once to
Bryan. This means thousands of dol-
lars added to 'the commerce of the
city. Bryan cannot afford to allow un-
necessary delay in this improvement.
Some plan should be worked out by
the business men in conjunction with
the management of the line whereby
this work can be pushed to an early
completion. A very little assistance
we understand will enable the work
to proceed with vigor enabling the
line to give rapid service at a very
early date. Every effort should be put
forth to this much desired accom-
plishment OUR "ED."
We were this morning tendered a
check for $2.."0 to pay for a political
convention call. This is the first in-
stance of anything like It during the
twenty years' experience of the Examiner-Review
and we haven't yet
quite recovered. The check came
from Mr. E. W. Crenshaw of Bryan
who Is chairman of the Twenty-second
Representative District. Mr.. Cren-
shaw Is evidently not acquainted with
the custom prevailing in matters of
this kind. We not only do not receive
offers to pay for political calls but we
are expected to publish miles of
gratuitous stuff of one sort and an-
other and the most of us fall for It
without cominent. The' check waR
promptly returned to Mr. Crenshaw
though we were very much tempted
to keep It and frame It as the one big
curio of our sanctum. Navasota Ex-
The Mr. E. W. Crenshaw referred
to above Is the best known man In
Brazos County and Is juRt plnln "Ed"
here at home. However he Is what
we call a real man. Our neighbor at
Navasota Is not familiar with such
doings. If you had one or two men
like "our Ed" In Navasota you would
gradually come to yourself and when
approached by a real gentleman it
would not take so long to recover.
Mr. Crenshaw knows that printers
have to pay their bills and their only
source of Tevenue Is from their ad-
vertising columns. The only trouble
with our neighbor at Navasota as we
see It Is that be needs a manager.
The Post learns from what It re-
gards as absolutely reliable sources
that during the State meeting of the
Farmers' Union last week at Fort
Worth a resolution endorsing the
Ferguson land rent plank was voted
down by an overwhelming majority.
The matter has been kept quiet for
political reasons but has finally leak-
ed out. And just to think the poli-
ticians at El Paso are preparing to
put it in the platform and thus com-
mit the Democratic party of Texas
to this malignant heresy even though
the farmers after a full and free dis-
cussion in their State convention
have repudiated it. Houston Post

SELECTING GOOD SEED OF
CORN AND GRAIN SORGHUMS
Maturity Is the first consideration
In selecting good seed corn. If ears
are pulled before they are mature the
kernels will shrivel and will not pro-
duce vigorous plants. As soon as the
corn is thoroughly ripe take a sack
and walk slowly along each row let-
ting the eye have sufficient time to
size up each plant. The seed for
planting should be selected only from
plants that show a decided tendency
to yield well plants producing two
or more good ears are to be preferred.
The stalks should be of good size at
the base gradually tapering not
necessarily tall. Strong vigorous
stalks of medium height generally pro-
duce the best ears. The ear should
be borne at a medium height on the
stalk. Plants that bear their ears
high up on the stalk blow down easily.
The shank or portion that joins the
ear to the stalk should be of medium
size and of sufficient length that the
ear may bang with tip down. Ears
that are borne upright on the stem
damage easily in wet weather. Select
from stalks without suckers. Suck-
erlng is an undesirable characteristic
and is to a certain extent hereditary.
Avoid the large ears on stalks stand-
ing singly with an unusual amount of
space around them. They will not
necessarily have a high producing
About twice as much seed as is
required for planting should be select-
ed so that sufficient seed will remain
after the ears of low germinating
power have been discarded when the
germination test Is made before plant-
ing. When the seed eara have been
husked from the standing stalks tho
next step Is to properly store them
for winter keeping. Remember Hint
they must have free circulation of it Ir
under conditions where the tempera-
ture does not change rapidly. This
Is to allow the excess of moisture to
evapornto readily nnd to prevent the
germ from being weakened. A Rood
method Is to suspend from the celling
or rafters of a well ventilated building
ten or more ears In a siring each ear
looped at about the middle on a dobua
strand of binding twine. Take a piece
of twine about ten feet long and
double it tying the ends together
forming a loop. Take one end of the
loop in the right hand and the other
In the left and standing erect allow
the loop to hang down until It. just
touches the floor. The end of the
loop in the left huml should be held
about six Inches higher than In the
right. An ear Is then placed across
the strings on the floor and the right
hand and the strings are passed
through between those held In the left
leaving a place in which to Iny the
second ear. This method Is continued
until the string is filled. The longer
string Is then looped through the
shorter and the corn is hung up for
Kaffir Mllo and Feterlta.
The seed of these crops for future
planting should be selected in the
field just as in the case of corn. The
plants from which seed is selected
should possess the following charac-
ters: 1. They should be vigorous grow-
ers? yielding-a large amount of grain.
This also means good drouth resist-
ance. 2. They should be early maturing.
This Is an Important character In dry
3. The heads should be large well
filled and compact
4. The heads should extend well
out of boot or upper leaf sheath. No
seed is produced on the enclosed por-
tion which often becomes moldy or
rotten If wet weather prevails.
6. The plant should be free from
suckers and branches. Suckers are
usually not profitable producers of
grain and rob the main plants of
water and food. They mature later
than the main stalk.
6. Avoid plants with pendant or
hanging heads. They are hard to
When harvested the seed should be
hung up for the winter in a well
ventilated place so that it will not
heat or mold. In sections where wee-
vils damage the grain during the win-
ter months. It will be necessary to
store the seed grain after it has been
thoroughly dried in tight boxes or
bins and fumigate It with carbon bi-
sulfide using at the rale of about ten
pounds of the liquid to eaih l.OO
cubic feet of space. This liquid
should be put In shallow pans and
these placed on the surface of the
grain. The bins or boxes must be
kept well covered at all times.

HOUSTON MARKET REVIEW.
Houston Tex. Aug. 12. Of timely
and reassuring Interest are tho re-
ports and official too that the United
States government is preparing
means to finance tho cotton crop and
that New York bankers also plan to
advance the cotton growers $400000-
000 at the rate of $10 per 1ml o to
assist in the gradual marketing of the
staple. It is their wlith as well as
the growers' that higher prices pre
vail for cotton and their advances of
actual rash will assure the planter
funds for Immediate needs and larger
profits through gradual marketing.
On the whole business Is readjust-
ing Itself from the shock ot ten days
ago when some European . crowned
feet were stepped on and the greatest
of modern wars startid. It Is appar-
ent now that America will benefit Im-
mensely. Marketing of the cotton
crop appeared as the only big prob-
lem but with two great forces tbe
United States government and New
York banking Interests assuring Im-
mediate money to the growers the
last crowd was swept away and the
growers may safely look forward to a
most successful year.
The world must be clothed. It must
be fed war or peace. In war destruc-

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY HONORS
Edith M. Thomas poet was born
at Chatham Ohio August 12. 18.'.t.
Her life as an author really began
when' she was but a few years of age.
Her early efforts had a quality and
merit seldom found In the rhymes
produced by children. While at nor-
mal school she contributed verses to
various Ohio newspapers. The fresh-
ness of expression the buoyant tone
and the exquisite finish of her lines
sot them In strong contrast with those
produced by most writers of the time.
Her works have appeared In various
publications among them the Atlantic
Monthly and the Century.
THE TANGO FOOT.
Few new things of general popu-
larity long escapo the doctors. They
manage to get Into business relations
with such In surprisingly short order.
Early In the automobile era the de-
votees of that mnchlno began to hove
new things the mntter with them. It
wns the same with the aeroplane and
now the tango Is furnishing Its modest
contribution In the shape of a tifngo
foot. We may expect a maxlxe knee
a hesitation hip and several other
terpslchorean disease specialists. The
symptoms of tango foot are thus set
forth by a New York doctor in the
Medical Record: Patient after a
tango day or night awakes in the
morning with a slight dull pain in the
outer front portion of the lower leg.
At first he or perhaps more probably
she thinks It due to rheumatism or a
slight bruise. But the pain continues
and increases and it becomes more
unpleasant to move the foot at the
ankle as in walking. Coming down
stairs is particularly disagreeable.
At this point if the tangolst Is of
the right sort the doctor "gets his
innings." Upon examination the lat-
ter finds slight inflammation of a ten-
don sheath running down the front ot
the ankle and foot Treatment: A
soothing lotion limited amount ot
walking and abstention from tongolng
the latter being the Important item.
The doctor records to dnte eight cases
of tango foot one "a seamstress who
worked the sewing machine with het
foot. Perhaps now that the facts
have been published the crop will in
crease. It is to be hoped however1
that these new dunces will not be al-
lowed to ruin the joints and tendon
sheuths of the lower limbs f our ris-
ing generation. In (Ik. e of some
of our more elderly tloltcs a mild
