Junk Room Is Made Dainty Bedroom
From junk room to bedroom, is the
bedroom demonstration record Mrs.
Otto Hudson of Wadsworth had to
give on the Club Achievement Day,
Friday, October 5th.
Starting with a room in which they
had stored junk, she finished a dainty
bedroom for her daughter, covering all
items specified in .the demonstration
club outline. Beginning with the floor,
which had to be levelled, she finished
floors, wood work, walls, and built a
closet from nn old discarded wardrobe.
“When 1 finished, my daughter cams
running in and said, ‘Mother, this is
just the way I wanted it to look’.”

FARM NOTES .

By F. 0. MONTAGUE.
Joe Birkner, dairyman and farmer,
three miles north of Bay City on High-
way 60, is preparing thirty aores of
his fine farm land for a permanent
pasture. His seed have been ordered
and within a few days now they will
be in the ground. He has prepared
the ground as you would for a gar-
den and a fine stand is to be expected.
If he has “good luck,” he should have
pasture there within two years that
will carry a cow to every acre ten
months out of the year. Inst ad of
working to grow feed and haul it in to
the dairy herd, he will Irt each cow
bring in her own feed—a bellyful at a
time. She will get all she wants,
when she wants it, and what she wants.
The mixture to be sown will consist
of Italian Rye Grass, Dallis, Carpet,
Lespedeza, Hop, and Black Medic. The
first three grasses, the last three clov-
ers which will give him a high pro-
tein green feed and a great land build-
er. He will sow at the rate of 22
pounds of the mixture per acre.
Mr. B. F. Curry of McCrosky is at-
tending the Wharton County Fair this
week with his paint Arabian Stallion.
The horse is in fine condition for the
Fair and will, no doubt, thrill the
hearts of all true horsemen. This is the
first time he has been fitted and shown
since he was shipped to Matagorda
County from Oklahoma several yeors
The corn-hog checks for this County
should coni' in within the next few
days and also the corn-hog referen-
dum is to be held this month, at which
time every producer will be given an
opportunity to cast his ballot as to
whether or not he wants a control pro-
gram in 1935.
And that is as it should be. If this
is to be a democratic country, and it
is supposed to be, then it should be
given to every producer the right to
say collectively what they need. Out
of all this delay and confusion we may
derive lasting good, certainly better
than the hog round way of doing
things where the producer gets little
for his toil.

The Story of the
NEW STUDY LAMP
A Pretty College Girl’s
Problem Started It!
* a i
IRETTY AS a picture and smart
as a whip, a certain college
girl, for no apparent reason,
was not making the proper prog-
ress with her studies. Her puzzled
parent, a prominent illuminating
engineer, visited his daughter at
the school. He found the lighting
for study purposes abominable and
decided something must be done
Something was done
about it! A committee
of the Illuminating
composed of the “big
shots” in the lighting
game, went to work
and set the specifica-
tions for a "study”
lamp. These specifica-
tions covered, among
other things, height,
type and size of shade
and minimum intens-
ity of light. The Elec-
trical Testing Laboratory was ap-
pointed to certify a manufacturer
to produce the lamp under the seal
of the laboratory and the society.
The result: The college girl is
doing right well with her studies
and the lamp is now offered to the
public. Thousands who have suf-
fered from improper illumination
for reading and study will now
The lamp; 28 inches high, the cor-
rect height for delivering proper
light on desk or table. Equipped
with a white glass diffuser which
throws light upward and down-
ward. Shade lined with pure white

Central Power and Light Company
We arc having one of the most beau
tiful spells of weather for fall farm
work you ever saw. The rice farmer
is really “doing his stuff” these days
in getting his harvest finished. He
knows the valu: of good weather. The
hay balers are also busy in baling both
prairie hay and rice straw. No doubt
thirc will be a sale for this roughage
in the drouth stricken areas through
out the country when bad weather sets
Now if more of our row crop farm-
ers would get ail steamed up and be-
gin listing their land for next year’s
crop, we would really be getting ready
for winter. Get all this rank vegeta-
tion turned under where it can rot
and will put the soil in a pulverized,
friable condition that will make the
little seeds come to a stand in a hur-
ry next spring. And, too, by having
the land listed ap will allow the farm-
er to get his crop in early which will
insure him of an early crop, ahead of
the hurricane period and the drouths.
It is just the best crop insurance a
fellow can take out. How about start-
ing the plows? It has to be done some-
time—why wait and take the unnec-
essary chance of getting in the hole.
Let us begin to tame these Matagorda
County farms by doing our haavy
Cotton states, whose production this
year, according to official crop esti-
mates, will exceed their Bankhead Act
allotment will need to purchase only
enough tax-exemption certificates to
cover 431,223 bales of this extra pro-
duction, whereas states whose pro-
duction will be less than their Bank-
head allotments will have for sale sur-
plus certificates for the 1,639,474 bales
difference between their production and
their allotments. Consequently, while
every effort will be made to secure as
large a return as possible for holders
of excess cottoa tax-emption certifi-
cates the Agricultural Adjustment Ad-
ministration reiterated that it would be
mathematically impossible for leach

plus cotton tax-exemption certificate
pool to net owner anywhere near as
much as $20.00 per bale. On the bas-
is of the September 1 cotton crop esti-
Drouthy conditions are not confin-
ed to America, according to reports.
Conditions are reported to be espec-
ially severe in Danube Basin and bu-
reau representatives estimate that the
Danubian wheat crop has been reduced
by dry weather to 100,000,000 bushels
below the 1933 harvest of 370,868,000
bushels. Such a crop would be one of
the smallest on record for the Basin
and would allow little or no exporting.
Crops in almost all countries of the
Northern Hemisphere have been dam-
aged and parts of the Southern Hem-
isphere, particularly Australia and Ar-
gentina, have been affected by drouth.
Rains came too late in Germany, Po-
land, Czechoslovakia and Austria to
offset damage to bread and feed grains.
Large stocks of 1933 broad grain crops
will prevent a shortage of bread but
live stock feed will be short. Russia
has had a severe drouth and short
grain crops are indicated.
Austin, Texas, Oct. 10.—The state
common school fund received the rec-
ord total of $8,496,212 as its one-
fourth “cut” of Texas’ gasoline tax
income for the fiscal year which ended
August 21, nearly $1,000,000 more than
in every previous year, Comptroller
George II. Sheppard announced today.
Schools receive one cent of the four-
cent gasoline tax.
Proportionate boosts went to the
Board of County and District Road
Bond Indebtedm ss, which also re-
ceives one cent of the tax, and the
highway fund, which gets the remain-
ing two cents.
Working his first full fiscal year
with an adequate field force under the
state's strong new “anti-bootleg” law,
the comptroller boosted gas tax in-
come $4,036,845 above last year to an
all-time high total of $33,984,848, his
annual report showed.
He attributed the entire gain to rec-
ord enforcement activity and the edu-
cations! campaign of the Trxus Good
Roads Association. In his state-wide
drive against the tax-stealing “rack-
et,” his 50 field men filed 99 felony
and 71 misdeamor charges during the
year, he reported.
The $33,984,848 income is broken up
into three parts. In addition to the
$8,496,212 for schools, another $8,496,-
212 goes to county tax relief in the
refunding of county road bonds.
Whereas the fund last year was able
to pay all interst on such bonds but
only 30 percent of the principal, the
increase will permit paying this year
of all interest and at least half the
principal maturities, if not more, Mr.
The remainder of the gas tax, or
$16,992,424, is still devoted to the orig-
inal purpose for which the tax was in-
vented—construction and maintenance
of state highways.
