THE CAPITOL POT "BLISS"
Only S lbs. of lint cotton will pay for an extra 4% of
potash in your fertilizer applied at the rate of500 lbs.
per acre. Use plenty of potash to prevent rust, reduce
wilt, increase yields, and get the profits you want.
Cotton Rust Is Potash Hunger
Cotton rust, which was more general last year than ever
before reported, can be controlled by liberal applications
of potash. The Arkansas and Mississippi experiment
stations have shown that potash will also greatly reduce
the wilt disease. The right fertiliser to use will vary with
soil and cropping conditions. Experiment stations recom-
mend 400-600 pounds per acre of a fertilizer contain-
ing 4-6% nitrogen, 8-10% phosphoric acid, and 4-10%
potash. Where rust has appeared use 8-10% potash
and a nitrogen-potash top-dresser if necessary.

The doin's in the Capitol are
getting interesting. The harmony
that prevailed for the first two
weeks of the legislature appears
now somewhat disturbed.
The thing had to come sooner
or later, It looks like trouble is
no respector of persons.
To start with Speaker Calvert
did not please a good many mem-
bers because he did not appoint
them on the committees they
wanted on. Every Speaker of the
last twenty years has had the
same trouble, and it generally
leaves some scars that are never
However, when the Speaker ap-
pointed young Alf Roark as chair-
man of the Committee on revenue
and taxation he made one ap-
pointment that everybody approv-
ed. Alf is the youngest member
that was ever made chairman of
this, the most important, commit-
tees of any legislature. He comes
from the old historic county of
Hardin, and his home people will
feel justly proud of his merited
Governor Allred is having some
trouble too. His close friends are
expressing some chagrin at the
Governor's change of position
from no new tax in his campaign
to a 13 million new tax demand
on this legislature. His friends
say they would not feel so em-
barrased if he had told them
wherp to get the money instead
of a general suggestion to tax dif-
ferent things. They say that if
he wants to tax oil, let him say
how much; if he wants to tax util-
ities, then how much; and they
say that if he still has his knife
out for sulphur then they say they
would appreciate it if he would
give them the cue as to the rate.
The Governor is having trouble
with the Game, Fish and Oyster
Commission, and it looks like the
scrap may get into the courts. The
Governor appears to be very anx-
ious to repeal the horse race bill.
He has his friends Graves and
Bradbury in charge of the repeal
bill in the House. But they will
not put it over. The idea is al-
ready expressed that the repeal
talk is just "hooey" and that the
bill will never come up. In sup-
port of this prediction, they call
attention to the fact that though
a repeal bill was offered at the
last session no effort was ever
made to get the bill up for consid-
eration. It will be interesting to

Amendment will come up soon for

It's an amazing story—-ho*v one man armed
with a single law book, two guns and a light-
ning-fast draw, nameo himself the "Law West
Oi the Pecos"—and made it stick! And made
the business of the court a profitable side line

a jail, where the punishment for every offense
was either aanging or a fine—and the fines

Amazing snci amusing—funn.ier than a

Judge Roy Bean, "Law West of the Pecos,"

THE RUSK CHEROKEEAN V"
ment of all minors male or female
under the age of 18 years. The
vote will be close. The opposi-
tion is led by Senator Holbrook
from Galveston. He says this
amendment is against the farmer
and contends that three-fourths
of the cotton crop of Texas is
made and gathered by children
under 18 years of age. If he is
right (and I think he is) then the
raising and education of families
in Texas would be impossible as
cotton production is yet the back-
bone of our Texas civilization.
I attended this week the grad-
uating exercises of 117 students of
the Austin High school. They
were all strong and vigorous, and
nine-tenths of them were more
than 5% feet in height, and many
of the boys were about 6 feet tall.
As I looked at this class of smart,
intelligent people who had al-
ready completed a far better edu-
cation than the mothers and fath-
ers who made Texas, I thought
to myself that it would be a dis-
tinct crime against these students
as well as reflection on our civil-
ization for any government to
have the power to prohibit by
law their employment by anybody
who wanted or- could give them
employment to earn a living for
themselves or their parents.
To prohibit by law the labor of
children under 12 years of a^e
might be alright, but to prohibit
anybody under 18 years from
making a living is foolishness and
I hope the legislature of Texas
will so vote.
But the big issue that won't
down is the Old Age Pension, and
it is making the legislators as
nervous as a cat on a hot rock.
It now develops that the liquor
revenue which is being largely
absorbed by a "horde of political
appointees, won't be enough to
pay the deliberalized pension, let
alone the constitutional pension
which the people voted. That old
fighting Dem. from Wood coun-
ty, Judge Ben Cathey whipped
through the House a bill that
gives to the Commissioners Court
of each county the right to pass
on the right of the old people of
their counties to draw pensions,
and to call attention to the draw-
ing of pensions by people who are
not entitled to have it.
Show How Rural
Home Eco. Better
Recognition of the important
part the home supervisor is play-
ing in the advancement of home
economics in rural life has just
come from the Texas State Home
Economics association through an
invitation to Miss Florine Durham
county home supervisor for the
Resettlement Administration, to
join the association.
Invitation to join the association
indicates recognition of a pro-
fessional standard of work in a
program which contributes def-
initely to a better understanding
of home problems and the part
home economics can play in cre-
ating a more ideal family life.
Miss Durham confines her act-
ivities to work with home-makers
in families who have borrowed
money from the Resettlement Ad-
ministration under the supervised
loan plan. She works with the
women in planning their annual
home budget, in executing this
budget, in carrying their share
of the burden of repayment. Their
''share" is the raising and conserv-
ing of every possible item of
food, the making of clothing, and
the planning of inexpensive re-
creation so that cash income from
crops may be applied against
The success of this plan has
been so pronounced that many
wives are conserving quantities
of food valued at more than the
total income the husbands make
from cash crops. The greatest
value of these products is not
in the raw product as it comes
from the garden, chicken pen,
hog and cow lots, but in the
finished products — butter, cured
meat, canned poultry, canned and
dried vegetables, and mattresses.
The home supervisor helps
these women grow a bushel of
tomatoes on a few feet of ground
and then convert the bushel of
tomatoes into an average of $2.30
worth of caned tomatoes and to-
mato juice; or fifty pounds of raw
cotton and nine yards of ticking
into a $15 or $20 mattress; or tame
and wild fruits into the family's
supply of fruit juices and jellies.
While she is teaching the home
maker and the girls to do these
things she is also teaching them
the health-giving properties of
various foods, of a balanced diet
