IT’S CHEAP INSURANCE
Some people still question the!
practicability of the trench silo—but
ask the man who has had experience
and he will tell you that he wouldn’t
be without one and will likely tell
you how profitable his silo has been
Filling a silo is neither hard nor
expensive. The crop can be cut with
a row binder and hauled to a cutter
which will chop and blow the mater-
ial into the trench—or an ensilage
harvester, which takes the place of
both, can be employed. The method
used can suit the fancy of the owner.
There is nothing complicated
about putting a crop into a silo.
Only a few simple rules must be ob-
served. Green crons with a reason-
able sugar content need nothing but
close packing to exclude the air;
therefore, cutting the material into
short pieces is desirable because this
type of silage packs better.
Some crops, such as alfalfa and
other forage crops containing little
or no sugar, require some cheap mo-
lasses to start fermentation.
The size and shape of the trench
how to fill it and treat each crop can
be learned from the county agent,
the implement dealer, or from a
neighbor who has given a silo a fair
trial and has experience. __
Many good farmers now hedge
against the summer drouth by pro-
viding Sudan grass or other culti-
vated pastures or keeping a supply of
ensilage in reserve. This assures a
steady flow of milk from the dairy
cows and continued gains in live
stock during that period of Texas
climatic peculiarity so commonly
called “the summer drouth”.
Shortage of feed xfor dairy cows,
beef cattle, sheep or hogs results in
losses which take considerable work
and expense to restore.
Trench silos cost so little to build
and fill that it’s mighty cheap in-
surance against feed shortage at any
The death angel visited our com-
munity last Thursday evening at
5:15 and claimed the tired spirt of.
S. L. Carpenter. He had been in,
very poor health for some time but
was able to go about with his work
until a week before he passed away.
Everything humanly possible was
done by doctors, loved ones and
friends, but the Master had called.
He was a kind and loving husband
and father; a good neighbor. He
will be greatly missed. He was a
man that never complained al-
though his body was never free from
pain. The sympathy of the com-
munity goes to his wife and children,
the little grandson he was more
than a father to and hie brother,
who was so devoted to him.
Mr. and Mrs. Dan Dixon of Paris
returned home Sunday after attend-
ing the funeral of S. L. Carpenter.
The farmers are all making good
use of the sunshine. The hum of
binders can be heard, and some are
baling hay. The ladies are canning
so there is work for all.

Lack of knowledge causes many

Many others, however, know how
the headaches, nervousness, cramp-
like pain of functional dysmenorrhea
due to malnutrition are helped
by the proper use of CARDUI.
Some take it a few days before
and during “the time,” to help ease
periodic distress. But CARDUI’S
principal use is to help increase
appetite; stimulate the flow of
gastric Juice; so ‘ aid digestion,
assist in building up physical re-

odical distress. Women have used
CARDUI for over 50 years. '

—Fannin County’s Only Ice Cream Plant—
iL. K. Hargrove is a farmer. It is
true that he lives in town and boards
at the same place, but it is also a fact
that he actually plants crops and
makes them grow.
This spring Mr. Hargrove planted
potatoes, as usual. Along came a
frost and bit the potatoes down—
way down. Hargrove says he did
not do a thing about it—just let na-
ture take its course, and its con-
science be its guide.
What happened? >In spite of the
adage that is to the effeidt that po-
tatoes killed to the ground by frost
are very dead, he raised a big crop
of them this year! He did not cut
them off, or anything.
Mr. Hargrove also states that one
of the best potatoe crops he ever
raised was produced after the seed
, potatoes had been planted when the
moon was not “right”. He says he
had to almost make' Charlie DeJour-
j net, a negro, to plant those potatoes.
| Charlie insisted that “the moon ain’t
| right. ”
When the time came to dig the po-
tatoes he had Charlie plow them up.
He said it was the biggest Irish po-
tato crop he ever raised. When he
asked Charlie to explain it, his ali-
bi was that i.t was an “accident!”
