Kafir Corn Special Big Lodge Doings
The Kafir Corn Special arrived this | Monday night the old lodge hall
morning and delivered lis message, j |lere ,4a ulua| when the Camp meets
People always turn out to see and j WHS j|ie SWIle 0f abundant enjoyment,
hear people who ride in a special train gpiCu(j with the deep and solemn les-
«nd although the morning was cold 0f t[je degrees. Three candidates
and cloudy a good crowd met the train
this morning. And all were convert-
ed to the gospel of kallr corn and did
not hear anything that they didn't
know already. John Fields of the
Oklahoma Farm Journal made the
tirst talk giving an abundance of fig-
ures and statistics, He was followed
by a farmer from Washita county who
gave some of his experience in the
growiug of katir. He strongly Irecom
mends the planting of kallr early and
not just up to the tirst of July, also
that it should be planted thinner In
the row than is customary. In speak
of it being hard on the land he said
that It did not take any more ueutri
meut than to grow the same amouut
corn but as the katir stock grew until
frost it should be plowed under or
disKed up as soon as possible after
harvesting the crop. As the stay here
was siiort owing to the train running
behind schedule they did uot talk much
about the feeding of katir.
The negro who hung himself in the
jail at Enid last Thursday night after
the jury had handed out the verdict
that he be hanged by ttie neck until
dead, is reported as saying that If
(iov. Oruce would not hang k nigger
he would show him that he would.

From Expert Station
Editor Garber Sentinel:
We have no bulletins on the subject
of Shallu, feterita and the other un-
important grain sorghums.
Shallu is sold under a great many
names such as California wheat-, desert
wheat corn, etc. It has loose, open
heads, som. 'hiug like broom corn; the
grains are hard and flinty; it shatters
badly; and under no conditions what-
ever would I recommend the grow
ing ot tills plant.
Feterita is also known as Sudau
Durra. It belongs to the Durra fam-
ily. The shape of the head is very
similar to katir, but the grains resem-
ble very closely white milo. This
crop gives some promise of being ot
value. We are enclosing soma notes
on the subject of feterita'.

No M.W.A. Rate Change
There will be no change of rates in
the M. W. A. insurance order the
tirat of January. A recent Associated
Press dispatch from Hock Islaud, Ill-
inois, the headquarters of the lodge,
states that tne officers assure the
members that the old rates will be
continued pending the disposition of
the rate q uestion in the last court of
appeals, It is the general opinion
that the.new rates will never be adopted
or put into force and all members hav-
ing policias cannot be made to give
them up or be made to pay a differ-
ent rate than the policy calls for.
Members who have contemplated
dropping their insurance on account
of the change should wait a while be-
fore doing so. Do not drop out.
