FOR IN MILAM.
Rockdale Tex. Feb. 28. A
fcow months back in 1921 sever-
'' nl communities in Milam County
were so opposed to dipping their
cattle that they blew up the
county's expensive concrete uip-
ping vats. But after a couple
of Texas Rangers McMordio and
Wheatley came hero and stay-
. ed several weeks the peaple bc--came
convinced of the benefits
from dipping and now are pe-
titioning the county commis-
sioners to have vats installed
the largo and populous settle-
ment of Hoyto up on the Santa
Fe Road being the last place to
send in a potilion. There is now
but- one smallsection of Milam
County under quarantine and
tho commissioners estimrtte the
work tlis year will not cost any
more than $10000 whereas it
cost about $40000 last year.
It is expected that 1922 will see

Austin Tex. Feb. 27. -The
effects of the several oil discov-
eries in Texas have reached as
far as the state insane asylums
and in various ways.
In the last few days lawyers
have been digging through the
records of the asylum in this
city the oldest in Texas for in-
sane looking for data regarding
persons who have been confined
Ono case involves $700000
and tho woman whose history
was under scrunity was confined
in the asylum 33 years from
1888 to 1918 according to tho
asylum records. However ono
side is contesting the date of
her death. Tho nimsMnn w
whether she over lived at tho
time the property was accumul-
ated one side contending that
she did and that her heirs are
entitled to their share of the al-
leged community property. The
opposing side avers that she was
not living with her husband
when the community property
was amassed. The latter say
fwd.eV.n 15)02 nml thc olllers
that death came in 1918.
Recently relatives of a wo-
man who has been in the asylum
th. state $7000 as board
nnd lodging for the 27 years she
"brco confined the' rate be-
mg $5 per week.
At this lime the relatives of
another patient are about to pay
thc Slate approximately $1000
for her board and lodging in the
institution. They advise that
they are onxious to pay it and
able to pay it now and as long as
she is a patient.
A number of patients have
had oil found on their land in
varying quantities but In no In-
stance have the relatives taken
the patient out of the asylum
and placed him in a private Institution.
College Station. Texas Feb.
28 Selection of the right vari-
ety of cotton seed is as import-
ant as selection of thoroughbred
stock for breeding according to
Dr. G. F. Freeman chief of the
division of cotton breeding of
tho Texas Experiment station
in onnouncing that the station
would furnish cotton planters
with a list of the proper variet-
ies of seed for their section of
the state. A good well-bred
variety is just as much superior
to the ordinary stuff as' a fine
Jersey cow ia to an old scrub
for making butter said Dr. Free
man. "A few years ago cotton
was cotton and just anything
wouiu dor but the improvement
in spinning and weaving ma
chinery the manufacturers dis-
criminate much more closely be
tween the diffcrnt kinds of cot
ton. For each grade of goods
they want a special kind of cot-
ton. Formerly we just heard of
short staple and long staple cot-
ton meaning the ordinary up-
land on the one hand and thc
Sea Islad or Egyptian on the ot-
her. Today however tho dis-
tinctions are much finer. There
is a difference in thc price of
inch cotton and one and one-siv-tccnth
inch cotton ad that dif-
ferece is increasing.
"It is not necessary to grow
a short staple cotton to beat the
boll weevil. Some of our best
staple verities arc as early and
prductive as the short ones and
when price is considered they
bring much more value per acre.
Let the Experiment Station tost
out the different varieties. Tho
state pays for that. You play
safe and get improved seed bred
In Texas if possible so that you
will know that theey are adapted
tp Texas soil and climate condi-
tions. "The best cotton for Texas is
the cotton which has been test-
ed in Texas and proven to yield
to the farmer the most dollars
per aero. In parts of Texas
where labor for picking Is scarce
and high priced tho size of the
boll is important. It takes no
more time to pick a large boll
than a small one. It requires GO
per cent more labor to pick a
pound of cotton frm a variety
having 80 blls to the pound than
it does to pick a pound of one of
the Texas big-boll varieties that
mhkes a pund from 50 bolls. Get
your planting seed early."

The Yukon Is ono of tho grent rivers
of the world. It Is more limn 2300
miles long nnd Is hoth the longest nnd
tho largest river Uowing Into I'nclflc
waters In tho western hemisphere sur-
passing by n ronsldernble margin Its
nearest competitors tho Columbia nnd
the Colorado. Among all thc rivers
of North America the Yukon Is sur-
pnmteri In length only by thc Missis-
sippi system nnd the Mackenzie It
is longer than thc St. I.nwrencc as
well ns all the other rivers except the
Mississippi system which Hows Into
the Gulf of Mexico or the Atlantic.
Tho existence of surh n large river
as the Yukon In thc l'ur North was
long unsuspected. A ltusslnn lieu-
tenant Zagnskln entered ltd mouth
by bout In 1812 nnd traversed It for
several Jiunrtrcd miles. The Hudson's
Hay company hnd discovered Its head-
jvaters In Cnnrulii; but thc two bits
of Information were not pieced to-
got hor. Tho existence of thc river
ns n stream of grent magnitude nnd
length llrst beenmo really known
through the daring and romantic proj-
ect of Installing land teleg.'nph wires
between America and Kurope ncross
Alaska Itehrlng strnlt nnd thc wastes
of Siberia. Hubert Kennlcott In con-
nection with this enterprise blazed
tho Yukon trait by descending the
river In 1805. Thc first trading
Mourner nscended the stream In 18C0.

WHISKERS IN ANCIENT EGYPT
Believed to Have Been Introduced In-
to Country By Hortemen Wno
Came From Asia.
Wlmt could hnve been the explana-
tion of black bushy whiskers on an
ancient Kgyptlnn? Historically so-
cially customnrlly they did not be-
long there und yet thus nccoutcrcd
lay the occupant of one of the tombs
In the Theban necropolis which thc
Metropolitan museum's expedition -nt
that place chanced to excavate. Ho
was named Aiefnmon "Charioteer to
the General" and In his colllii they
found his whip broken Into three
pieces nnd tied up In Its own lash.
Now In his day T. K. Wlnlock ex-
plains horses nnd chariots had long
Leon used In Egypt but It was still
remembered thnt they hnd first come
from Asia and probably tho best
horses nnd the most skillful drivers
were nllens. Tho Asiatics always wore
beards and so this Kgypt Inn char-
ioteer to bo In thc Ivclgtit of fashion
Imitated them. "It makes me think
of the days of hows nnd carriages
In this country" ndds tho nrcheolo-

men wore Kngllrti nnd so those of
Ynnkeo birth copied the English side
whiskers." Now York Evening Post.

A market report covering the
ficd of womens wear predicted
the other day that the stylo of
wearing wool stockings in win-
ter would not bo likely to con-
tinue during another season.
It noted that the fashion leaders
cared less for them as soon as
tlioy became generally popular.
When they ceased to be "exclus-
ive style" they ceased to be popular.
Thc fact that such warm
stockings seemed eminently sens
ble for wear in winter weather
particularly in this period of the
short skirls may not count with
devotees of style.
If this prediction proves to
be correct it will bo'an illustra-
tion of the contmon tendency
among women to look for origin-
al and exclusive styles of cloth-
ing. That feeling does not exist
among men to any large extent.
They dislike anything that looks
unusual and may subject them
to jollying for putting on airs.
But the women long for the
touch of choice originality.
This does not necessarily prove
that they have less common
sense than men- For ages wo-
men had to win their success as
the result largely of personal
attractiveness. Those who have
a touch of originality in their
dress have commanded a cer-
This is however an ideal of
dress and manners that women
are gradually outgrowing. They
are finding out that solid merit
wins in the long run in the busi-
ness field at least rather than
following the freaks of fashion.
Merit does not always promote
the best ambitious marriage
yet ono based on substantial
worth will bo more permanent
than those whore men are won
by pretty and stylish clothes.
The most successful business
women dress quietly after the
same unoobstrusive manner that
men adopt. They are not look-
ing much for exclusive styles
and if wool stockings or anv
other articles of dress are the
most comfortable and appropri-
ate they will be apt to wear
