ROME Dec. 4. -Germany haB al-
ready made informal suggestions for
the establishment of peace through
the papal consistory here next Mon-
day according to reports current in
Cardinal Hartmann of Cologne Is al-
leged to have brought a proposal that
Germany will evacuate Belgium and
northern France and agree to auton-
omous government for Poland If the
Vatican will make a determined effort
to bring about peace.
The cardinals representing the
allies particularly Cardinal Gasmtet
of France and Cardinal Bourne of
England are said to have been
sounded on the proposal. It is under-
stood that they replied that their
countries would not countenance half
way measures in any peace program.
It is understood that Pope Benedict
has been sounding representatives of
all countries interested regarding
their attitude toward peace. It Is ex-
pected that he will tell the consistory
that the failure jf the powers to call
the Vatican into their councils made
The Hague treaty a dead letter and
was therefore responsible for the war.

In Contrast with Other Parts of
State Grady County Shows
Slight Increase in Acreage;
Growing More Barley
That the farmer of Grady county is
turning his attention more and more
to wheat each year is shown accord
ing to a statement given out this
morning by Ag-.nt Cooper in the fact
that this fall is witnessing an increase
of from 5 to 10 percent over last year
In the acreage being sown to that
Mr. Cooper says that in all sections
of this county where wheat has
proved a money crop the acreage is
being increaseti. There are some sec-
tions of Grady however Mr. Cooper
states where wheat will never make
a good money crop. Such portions of
the county he says have a soil which
grows what may be called a "strawy"
crop the crop running to straw to
ihe elimination of well-filled heads of
Mr. Cooper further stated this
morning that while the season was a
little too dry for wheat this fall at
the same time he did not think the
late wheat had been damaged for lack
of moisture while the early sowing
teemed to have already secured a
deep enough rooting to guarantee that
the wheat would "stool" properly and
the plant secure thereby a good grip
cn the soil.
The late sowing however Mr.
Cooper thinks will prove the best this
reason. Some farmers he says are
still sowing and he further says that
he does not think they are making
any mistake but thinks on the con-
trary that with an open winter this
late sowing will come in for its share
of the coming moisture and develop
into hardy plants.
The greatest trouble the agent
says and the greatest danger to be
feared now for the late wheat is that
there may be a sufficient amount of
moisture in the earth to sprout the
grain with not enough moisture to
enable the plant to grow and secure
a firm rooting following this germi-
Mr. Cooper also said that a large
number of Grady county farmers had
sown considerable acreages to barley
this fall. This crop which has for
years proved the great stock crop of
the Rocky mountain and the Pacific
coast sections is now Mr. Cooper'
states becoming known through this
section as a most reliable crop for
stock raisers to plant.
Mr Cooper says that barley makes
a far better pasture crop than does
rye and that it withstands dry
weather while younger a great deal
better than does the latter grain crop.
The sowing of barley this fall ac-
cording to Mr. Cooper has been the
cause of quite a number of Grady
county stockmen increasing their
herds through having the assurance
of good pasturage for them through
the winter. Among those who have
bought extensively cattle to pasture
the barley sown this season Mr.
Cooper mentioned N. M. Driscoll who
has recently bought two hundred head
of Herefords and William Bryent and
W. W. Wheeler who have bought a
car each of feeders.
Returning to the condition of the
wheat crop of the present season. Mr.
Coopor stated that he felt safe in say-
l ins fully two-thirds of the crop sown
this fall was still in first-class con-
dition and reasonably safe from dam-
aging injury from the dryness of the

NO BOLL WEEVIL IN GRADY
O. C. Cooper United States demon-
stration agent for Grady county
stated this morning that up to the
present no boll weevil had appeared
in this section. Mr. Cooper said that
the weevil seemed to be getting
pretty numerous in most of the
southern tier of counties in the state
and it might be feared that later in
the season they would be found here.

night into day; and shortly before
midnight the mirth will give place to
'mpressive ceremonies. President
Moore will bid goodbye to the expo-
sition. From a concealed orchestra in
the dome of ehe Tower of Jewels will
float the strains of "Farewell to
Thee"; and somewhere in the dis-

Then the Panama-Pacific exposition
will be history.
As celebrating the wedding of the
waters through the Panama canal the
exposition surpassed all expectations.
By November 15 more than sixteen
and a half million people had visited
tha big display. Fifteen million visi-
tors by that date had been considered
a liberal estimate. The fair also has
been a financial success. Figures
made public today show a net return
of nearly a million and a half dollars
What will become of some of the
more beautiful features of the great
exhibit is as yet undetermined. San
Francisco is trying to save from the
wrecking crew the Palace of Fine
Arts. Destruction of most of the
buildings will be commenced soon.
Many exhibitors have turned to tha
San Diego exposition which plans to
continue for another year. Many of
the amusement c:i. .essions will move
to the other fair.
