The wail "we can't get any
tiling in Davenport" will be
out of order this fall. Just visit
the stores on both sides of Broad-
way and see all the new stuff
that is beiug unpacked. We do
not remember ever having seen
such a bunch of it being unpack-
ed before, and we keep pretty
close track on such things too.
You can get it in Davenport this
fall or it isn't made.

Inquiries Made by Farmers
Dig up that piano letter you
received last Sunday or Monday.
If you laid it aside unopened,
you overlooked a bet and you
will be sorry for it before long.
There is a blank in that letter
which gives you a chance to do
someone a great favor without
it costing you a red cent. Now,
really, what better can you ask?

you '"low how winter oats will do
£°I? w*ntt'r ]>H turc and rarly crop,
u^ .,,re ,u Ket "'*> •'est seed?—Geo.
urentna!!, I awiiae County, Oklahoma.
Winter oatB have done very well
with uu on the average of about every
other year. They are not a safe crop,
nnd ure not considered equal to wheat
or winter rye for winter pasture. The
best winter oats are the Winter Turf,
and seed may be secured from seed
companies. 1 know of no producer
t this time who has seed for sale. If
you get some variety of wheat to
plant we would advise the Karkof va-
riety. If you cannot secure this, a
wood, puro strain of Turkey Red
should be very satisfactory.—O. O.

E. B. Moore is showing signs
of breaking into the cotton bus-
iness like he did last tall, At
least lie has been bidding on

keeping him out of the mark' I
is the fact that local gin8 -will
not gin his cotton.

pleted by local m. W. A. under

inviting thorn to participate.
Several deputies will be put to
work at different points in the

is expected between the different
camps to have the largest, class
to lx> initiated here on the night

The following directions have proven
satisfactory for making grape juice:
All containers should be sterilized in
boiling water before use. To two and
n half pounds of grapes, without stems,
add one pint of water and cook until
soft, then strain well. Add one pound
of sugar to the juice and boil for five
minutes. Bottle and seal. Grape juice
way be made by the so-called cold pro-
cess by adding one gallon of sugar
to each gallon of juice. See that the
bottles are perfectly clean and well
sealed when filled, as in the previous
method. Both methods will make a
juice which should be diluted with
water to test before serving. A small
piece of lemon may be served with
each glass.—C. K. Francis, Chemist,
of the Oklahoma Experiment Station,
Can's and Kafir Poison Stock

corn, and suggest preventive, or cure

T'sually the animals do not die from
bloat or Indigestion, nor do they choke
to death. The plants are most dan-
gerouB in the following conditions of
growth: Young plants; second
growth; frosted plants; stunted plants.
As the animals die very suddenly it is
impossible in most cases to adminis-
ter an antidote. The remedies that
have been suggested nre the results of
investigations of poisoning of men in
tli« various cyanide Industries. The
following have been suggested: In-
halations of ammonia (household am-
monia) and subcutaneous injection of
ammonia; the latter would of course
have to be applied by an experienced
person or veterinarian. Large doses
of glucose; thiB material is usually on
hand in tho form of cane syrup or mo-
lasses. A large dose of some quick
acting purgative such as a mixture of
linseed oil. and epsom salts have ulso
been suggested. This should bo given
as follows: ' Dissolve the salts in wa-
ter and give to the animal, then fol-
low with linseed oil.—C. K. Francis,
Chemist, Oklahoma Experiment Sta-

Please advise how to keep Hertnuda
Brass fro n taking possession of valley
land — l.ei Hocker, Pittsburg County.
Replying to your inquiry with regard
to the control of Bermuda grass in or-
d' tr that it may not take possession of
v aluable lands to the exclusion of other
crops, will say that there is no danger
from this source if properly managed,
lu the first place, Bermuda belongs
on the .hillsides, on the thin uplands
and places generally where washing 1b
likely to take place. It Is not a rota-
tion crop to be grown on the regu'ar
fields as a part of a rotation system.
You will recognize this from the fact
that it is propagated by roots or sods
keeping from the seed. There is no
difficulty about keeping it out of your
crultivated fields so long as you are
careful not to let It get ovor the line.
This is very easily done. However,
should It be in possession ot' some of
your rich garden spots you can eradi-
cate It by simply plowing it during
the long summer drouth just deep
■ enough to expose the root system to
' l he h ot sun and keep it harrowed, tli us
dryip.g it out and if necessary, burn
I Ing 11. Any plant that is not allowed
to co roe In contact with the soli moist
ure and the air will not be able to live,
and even in small patches you can
eradl rate It by smothering It out; that
is, ta lie a heavy deep mulch and cover
the p laco over, which will finally cause
it to die.
While this grass does become a pest
in the lo ivlands of the MiBsisBippi val-
ley, the ti ling that Is interesting 99 out
of every 100 of our farmers is how to
get some of this grass started on their
farms.—J. A. Wilson, Director, Oklu

Everlasting sorrow. No one
[ ever went to a good business col-
lege with honest intent aud ser-
ious purpose who did not con-
sider it money, time and labor
well expended. Thousands who
have not gone regret llie fact
that they did not. You Qan go
if you really hunger and thirst
for an education.
Nowhere else will you find
such choise companions. The
earth s noblest young people are
in the colleges, and at no other
time of life can you make such
strong and lasting friends. Girls
and boys from oiu most cultivat-
ed homes assemble annually at
our college. If you do not go to
college these choice friendships
are lost to you forever.
Do not postpone your going to
college. Youlh is the time for
preparation, just as spring is the
seed—time The farmer who
does not plant his seed in spring
time has no harvest, If he hasn't
the money to buy the seed, he
borrows it. If you haven't the
money to go to college, borrow
it, and pay it back out of salary
earned after graduation. You
can do this; many of our most
successful men attend college on
Business education is an asset
worth thousands. Itiaaneq iip
ment for life's work. It gives
the power to earn. It desiroys
jioverty and enthrones prosperty.
It cannot be lost or stolen.

reader, not to attend the Oapitll
