The Capital City Business
College of Guthrie, Okla.. has
arranged this year, as usual, to
accomodate all its students who
desire to continue their studies
during the Christmas holidays.
Those who especially desire to
return to their homes to spend
Christmas, will be excused on
Friday evening, Dec. 22nd, and
will be expected to take up their
work again on or before Jaouary
1st, 1912. Usually aljout two
thirds of our students remain
and work right through the holi-
New students may enroll at
anv time during the Christmas
!iolida)8. We advise all to en
roll as early as possible. There
is nothing to be gained by wait-
ing until January first. We have
no term openings, our school is
ti<e same one day as another,
just like a bank, R. R. or busi
uess house. The students' work
is principally all individual in-
struction, and each and even
student is pushed each day to
tils full capacity. Slow students
are not overcrowded living to
keep up with fast ones, and fast
students are not held back and
discouraged on account of slow
ones. It would really be belter
o enroll and get Siarted before
the big January lush.
Upon arriving in our iity,
come direct to the College, where
vou will lie itiven prompt allen
tion and choice o: nice boarding
place with private family at a
cost of fr m $2.30 to >3.50 r
w*-ek for b"ard and lodging.

i Dear Sir; Your report to Benjamin
Hear:.s ey, Sec. st the State Board ol
j Agriculture has beea referred to me
• for attention. From jour report I uc
: Jerstand that you desire that a man
' be sent to investigate your orchards,
. reiative to a supposed infestation of
1 'h# Sail Jose Scale, and furthermore
■ you desire to know if a man can b -
' sent without expense to you. In an
swer to this 1 beg to state that the
Department of Entomology of this
College has been vested with the au-
thority by the State Board of Agricul-
ture to proceed in accordance with
th« state nursery laws and make due
nspection of not only the nurseries,
but all public parks, cemeteries, and
! orchards, relative to dangerous dls-
! eases and insect infestations.
A state appropriation has beer, made
! for carrying this law into effect, and
^ ( shall commence the operatisn of
i controlling injurious insect pests and
; diseases first in the larger cities in
I the state, and especially in orchards
I and parks already known to be ic
| tested in proximity to the state nurs-
j eriei. The control of diseases and in-
sects is a big problem and will cost
the state considerable money at the
I .east calculation. Therefore, I desire
to proceed in the most economical
i manner possible.
The laws are such that all persons
■ owning trees infested with injurious
; diseases or insects must proceed with
' '.he control of the latter in accordance
i with the direction of the Entomolog
1st of the Experiment Station. If these
directions are not fulfilled within a
certain length of time, as may be de-
signated by the Entomologist, then
the latter may proceed with the de-
struction of the Infestations or dis-
eases and charge the cost to the own-
er of the property. These charges will
be paid the same as tax on the infest-
ed property. In cases where parties
follow the directions of the Entomo-
logist, the expenses of the Entomo-
logist will be defrayed by the state.
The cost of control in every case will
fall on the owner of the property and
the expenses will be less in all cases
where the directions of control as
given by the Entomologist are fol-
In your case, I advise that before
proceeding with the work of control-
ling this supposed San Jose Scale,
that you send specimens to me of
your trees which you think are infest-
ed with the scale and I will make
identification free of cost to you, and
in case it is not San Jose Scale I shall
give you complete directions which
may be followed, so that you can
control the pest at the least possible
In sending specimens of trees, send
only pieces of bark or small pieces of
limbs. A piece of bark one inch long
and three inches wide or a limb the
size of a lead pencil will be sufficient.
You should use discretion, however,
and select such samples as you think
are infested.—C. E. Sanborn, Depart-
ment of Entomology, Oklahoma A. &
M. College, Stillwater.

To the Democrats of Oklahoma
On behalf of the National Federation of Democratic Precinct
Clubs, we call upon you as patriotic Democrats to organize Precinct
Clubs in your own Precincts, for the purposes set forth in the Pledge
and Cor. -titution. One resolute Democrat can organize a Pre' Inct Club
and as its president federate with other Precincts for un'ited action.
1 he Rule of the Few, for the benefit of the few, must be termi-
n^ed in order to lower the cost of living and end the reign of unjust
monopoly. This can only be done by giving direct power to the people
at tlie Precinct and federating the precinct powers of the people, which
u/ill be an irresistible force for good government.
I lie governing business begins at the Precinct and the people at the
Precinct must organize in the governing business for the protection of
the many or be governed under manipulated delegated power in the
interest of the few.
W e offer you a mechanism and point the way out.
Will you help?

BALANCED RATION FOR DAIRY
It is a foolish man who neglects to comfort-
ably clothe himself during the cold weather.
It is a "mighty ornery" man who neglects to
provide his family with warm clothing.
Warm clothes are not, necessarily, "fine"
clothes. They can be bought without a great out
lay of money if one is careful in choosing.
Make out a list of the things you need and
bring it to us. You will be surprised at how far
you can make a dollar go on the purchase of
heavy underwear, sweaters, coats, suits, gloves
and other items probably on your list.
You can't beat our prices, quality consider-
ed, anywhere, no matter where you try.
Do not overlook that clothing is especially
suitable as a Christmas present this year

cattle ami dairying Do you consider
the Hoisteln a suitable breed for this
! state? Would it be well to brinjr in an
animal to this country from the nnrth?
What government bulletins would be the
I best for me to order to study the cow
uestion?"—W. R. Pearson, Muskogee
A good balanced ration for a 1,000-
lb. dairy cow giving about 3 gallons of
milk Is as folows:
12 lbs. alfalfa hay.
25 lbs. silage.
4 lbs. corn and cob meal.
1 lb. wheat bran.
1 lb. cotton-seed meal.
The Holstein is noted for milk pro-
duction and when cared for properly is
one of the best dairy breeds. The milk
Is not so rich as that of the Jersey or
Guernsey, but on account of the fact
that they give such a large amount of
milk the total amount of butter given is
often greater than that from the small-
er breeds. Holstein cattle hold the
highest record for both milk and but-
ter production, although they are not
such economical producers of butter-
tat on the average as the Jersey or
Guernsey. To give these large yields
It Is necessary that the Holsteins be
fed liberally. The breed was develop-
ed to its present productive ability on |
heavy pasture and good feed and the 1
best care and on account of their large
size and great capacity they need plen-
ty of feed in order to prove profitable.
They are likely to prove a disappoint-
ment if run on thin pasture and given
an Insufficient ration. Large cattle are
j not so well adapted to hot climates as
smaller breeds and consequently the
| Jersey has been a more popular ani-
mal In the South than a Holstein, yet
; there are many good herds of Hol-
! steins further south than Oklahoma.
Only young cattle should be brought
from the North into the tick country.
Calves under three months old may
I take a mild form of the Texas or tick
fever which will not prove fatal, but at-
I ter Biy or eight months old they should
| be inoculated with blood from a cow |
that has had ticks as this will give
' i hem a mild form of the fever and ren-
1 der them immune to the tick. C. I.

W. J. BRYAN'S INDORSEMENT
The Commoner of October 6, 1911,
says: "The last Issue of The Com-
moner contained the constitution and
by-laws of the Federation of Demo-
cratic Precinct Clubs. The Commoner
is glad to give the plan a hearty en-
dorsement a*d to urge all progressive
Democrats to join such clubs. Senator
Owen rightly states the issue: 'The
first fight is to keep the party from
being captured by Wall Street.' The
predatory interests are always at
work and only vigilance can protect
the people from deception and be-
trayal. Tbe Precinct Club is the unit
—it is the forum of the rank and file.
Let all lend a hand."
