The first appearance of the
hungry bandits occurred several
days ago. They were then very
small and black, but it required
only a few davs for them to ac-
quire the green color indicative
of the chlorophyll which they
had consumed in eating the
young cotton and other vegeta-
tion upon which thev subsist. At
first but little concern was en-
tertained at their appearance,
the current idea being that they
come every year, and do but lit-
tle damage during their visit;
but old settlers recall that every
year their numbers increase un-
til a concerted effort is made to
encompass their extermination.
The prevailing method of rid-
ding the country of any pest is
poison. Old settlers tell us that
three pounds of arsenic in a
half sack of bran, to which haa
been added a cheap molasses or
sugar to sweeten the bait, when
made into a soft mush and placed
in the region infested with grass-
hoppers, about a teaspoonf ul be-
ing used in each pile, is a verv
effective remedy for their ex-
termination. This should not be
placed near the barnyard nor
any place in which chickens
range. The poison is effective
two ways—first it destroys the
hoppers itself, and second, the
dead hoppers are eaten by the
live ones and the poison is thus
transmitted to those not eating
the poisoned bran.
Some farmers are raising large
broods of chickens and turkeys,
and these consume the hoppers,
thus enriching the exchecquer
of the producer and not requiring
the employment of the poison
remedy. However, those not
having the poultry must resort
to the poison.
The Courier takes pleasure in
helping in every way possible
the agricultural interests of the
country, and will be glad to give
space to any suggestions which
may assist in the relief of the

The following account of the
death of Mr. Homer Stuart was
given in th« Texa* papers:
"A party composed of Mr*1
Stuart and Mr. Riehardson and
Miss«e Sibyl Collins and Pauline
Gebhart were out in a pleasure
boat on the lake at Wichita PalU.
The boat began to leak and the
men rowed with all speed, but
when about 75 yards from the
shore the boat suddenly settled
in the water. Mr. Stuart and
Miss Collins jumped out over-
turning the boat, and started to
swim to the shore, but sank to-
gether after they had gone about
twenty feet; Mr. Stuart seemed
to be trying to save the voung
lady. Miss Gebhart and Mr.'
Richardson clung to the beat and
were rescued by some young
men from the pavilion." %
The remains of Miss Collins
were sent to Haskell. Texas, for
burial. She was the daughter
of Ex-Sheriff J. W. Collins of
Haskell, and was related to W.
C. Reeves of Eldorado and also
to the familv of W. G. Cousins.
Mr. Stuart was buried at Vernon,

Last Sunday morning Rev. C.
T. Davis delivered a discourse
in commemoration of Mothers'
Day. The church was tastily
and appropriately decorated, and
a large company of worshipers
was in attendance. Old-fash-
ioned songs were sung, and a
very sensible feeling of venera-
tion for "the old folks at home"
pervaded the service.
