Or THE HESSIAN ELY
IN GARFIELD COUNTY
lJy County A|fent Cwrence Roberts
In order to ascertain the facts rela-
tive to the present condition of the
Hessiau fly in Garfield county, the
county agent, Clarence Roberts, re-
quested the .State EutomoloRist from
the A. and M. college and experiment Decoration Day
at station at Stillwater, and Mr E. <• Pursuant to call the citizens of Liar
Kelley a United States government ber met Monday evening and the fol
man, located at Wellington, Kansas, lowing committees were appointed on
to come to Garfield county and lnves- £>tcorftnou Day exercises for Monday,
tigate the Hessian flv Infestation and v,liiy 31, J< 15.
give out all important information | Committee on Finance:
all the fields a good chance to show
what they will make.
County Agent Roberts is giving the
Hessian fly special attention and has
promised aid by the State Entomolo-
gist and the Government Entomolo-
gist in stamping this important pest
out of Gartield county.—Enid Daily
concerning the fly.
Mr. Kelley has made the Hessian fly
a special subject of study for about
ten years and is perhaps 'he best
authority on this subject in the United
States. The State Entomologist has
also giveu tiiiB ptst considerable study
along with other Insects that are iu-
jurlous to Oklahoma agriculture. Mr.
McCristy of the Enid Mill and Eleva-
tor company went into the infested
wheat belt with these men and gave
them all necessary support and en-
couragement in the investigation.
As far aB the present wheat crop Is
concerned nothing can be done to des-
troy the fly. The fly is now mainly in
a dormant condition. County Agent
Roberts couuted as many as twenty
four immature flies in a single stalk.
According to the general rule one fly
to a aiugle stalk is sufficient to cause
that stalk to fail to develop into a
proiitable head of grain. This insect
is not moving lrom lnlested iieldB into
non-infested flelds at the present time
and will not do so until thiB fall when
the flies will begin toemeige. Those
fields which are infested at the present
time will receive no lurther inletta-
tiona as far as this crop is concerned.
The instctB m wheat plants oi infested
lields will not come out of the infest-
ed plants and infest, other plants
thereby. Almost all of the flies are on
the flrst or Becond joints betwe.u the
leaf-sheath aud the stem in or very-
close to the soil. They will remain
heie until September or October, when
they will emerge up until about the
20Ui ol October. Soon after i merging
the fly will lay her eggs on volunteer
wheat or regularly sown wueat.
To the west and south of Enid the
infestation is not known to be sufli
clently serious to cause alarm, but in
the northeastern one-fourth of the
county the infestation is seriouB and
should be given careful attention by
the farmers. Not all flelds are in'est-
ed to the same extent. The worst
fields are olteu separated by seveial
miles. Between this will be fields
with but lew flies In them. Practically
all the damage to this crop is done but
the full extent caunot be lealized until
The question lias been raised wheth-
er the wheat could not be mown aud a
second crop secured as iu the case of
wheat which has been destroyed by
hail. The Entomologists are of the
opiuiou that a second crop of wheat
not beBecured following an infestation
of Hessiau lly, There would be no
objection however to trial experiments
since there is plentv of time for plant
ing any of the grain sorghums an kallr,
feterita, etc., or planting cowpeas in
Case the wheat failed to develop, lit - j

Why Dancing Is Wrong
I!y R-*v. Turner
Since the enormities of lewdfulness
of danceB. too commonly tolerated in
our time, is so disgraceful to the age
and so irreconcilable with the Gospel
of Christ, that 1 feel It my duty to the j
souls ot those who may read this ar-
ticle, to warn them, who run wit:, t e
world to "the same excess of riot" in
1st- Because, if there were i-mif
but dancers, no church deserving :h«
name woud have an existance.
2nd. Because, of the danger of tv
Christian duhiug their spiritual lite
and making their holy calling of no
3rd. Because, of the danger of its
f isciuaUoli to the unsaved; so great as
to of'times keep them from becoming
5th. Because, all who attend are
brought to the same level mentally,
morally, and spiritually.
6th. Because, ot the Bible example
or dancing. (Matt. 14: ii 7)]
7th. Because, of the lact that nine-
teen out of every twenty women who
fall can trace the beginuiug of their
sad state to the modern dance.
8th. Because, it lias no ideal.
inh. Because, it is an avenue of
10th. Because, it renders one in-
competent to attend to business.
11th. Because, the dance alone of
all favorite diversions of gay society,
requires the association of the two
sexes in it.
Because, it does not give what it
(,t) It, promises pleasure As pleas
ure is something that satibfles, it abso
lutely tails in its promise as it only
creates a desire. 1 herefore, admitting
any or any port of these statements to
be facts, can we still say, "I see no
harm it: the profligacy, licentiousness,
brothel, and all their afeudant evils.
With this concluding thought I leave
you to your own reflections. You may
| pass such criticisms on me on this ar
j tide as you Bee Et. But hear Christ
as he calls, "Come up higher and 1 will
Is'iow the things that shall be here-
after." Paul sajs, "Be not deceived, Dr. A.Mathers
Goii is not mocked, t r whatsoever a
man soiveth, that shall he also reap."
Yours in Christ's name,

(iOOU AND EVIL
The poet got his facts awry, con
cerning what lives after death; tie
good men do li eson for nye, the evi
passes like a breath. A noble thought
by thinker thunk, will live and flourish
through th theyears; a thought ignoliln
goes kerplunk, to perish in a pool of
teare. Man dies, and folks around his
bed behold hist.anquil, outworn clnj;
"We'll speak no evil of the dead, but
recollect the good," they say. Then
one recalls some noble trait which
figured in the ice-cold gent. "lie fix>d
the Widow Johnsiug's gate, and would
not charge a doggone cent." "Oh, lie
was graDd when folks were ill; he'd
stay and nurse them night aud dsy,
hand them the bolus and the pill, and
never hint around for pay." ' He ri^n

is planted by the use of the lister the
