It is possible that the paris
green campaign against the wee-
vil will prole a detiiment rather
1li.au a benefit to the state.- The
farmers, except those upon whose
farms experimental work is now
being done, who are now order-
ing the poison, probably are not
vising clue precaution as to the
quality as urged by the state
chemist in the Express some
days ago. Aside from this, the
use of paris green is not admit-
ted by experts in the government
service as being efficacious to the
extent of complete .annihilation
of the boll weevil., They admit
it will kill some of them, so will
beating them on the head with a
sledge hammer. The national
government lias appropriated
• $250,44)0 for this work, and B.
T. Galloway, chief of the bureau
of plant industry, who is in
charge, has enlisted the co-op-
eration of 5000 farmers of the.
state in cultural methods. While
the experiments with paris green
are on, these 5000 farmers should
stick to their work until some-
thing better is discovered.—Ban

B. F. Yoakum Buys 450 Acres

It is learned from a reliable
source theft during the past few
weeks a deal has been consum-
mated whereby B. F, Yoakum
has acquired some 350 acres of
land adjacent 1 o the Sap round-
house and fair' grounds. The

source it is learned that the pro-
perty will be used for machine
shops and terminals of the new
Frisco interests, ami possibly
new general offices will be erected
on the property. Another states
that the Sap is gradually break-
ing away from ail Southern-Pa-
cific interests and that passes
are again being issued to rail-
road men and also that freight
shipments hr ve been lately going-
east via the Santa, Fe route.
This and several more marked
incidents give a world of room
for speculation that B. F. Yoax-
urn has secured a man m San

be seen.—San Antonio Light.
It is most encouraging to note
the interest our people are dis-
playing in regards to the rail-
road proposition, and it is now
up to the road promoters to do
their part in the transaction,
for the citizens of the county will
