Feed Yellow Com!
Did you knov; that yellow com makes better
feed, especially for hogs, than white com?
Well, it’s a fact, as I’m prepared to prove—
but you-can read the whole amazing story
for yourself in next week’s issue of
Of course, white corn still has its place; but
for real, downright, money-saving facts you
should know just what the color of the com
has to do with your fee, Vng costs.
But this new discovery is only
one of many up-to-the-minute
subjects discussed in this issue
alone: Some disgruntled
folks, speculators especially,
have said that the Farm Bu-

For the next several montV,
scarlet 'fever,, supposed to be
germ disease, will do its best to
invade the homes and schools
of Oklahoma, its dangers, un-
happily and only too well
known. The coming together of
children in poorly ventilate!
and over-heated rooms afford
excellent opportunities for the
spread of the disease.
Secretions fron the nose and
n;tuth and excretions from the
bowels, kidneys nr.d skin, are
carriers of the disease and all
objects exposed to such contam-
ination should be burned or at
least thoroughly disinfected.
It is a dangerous disease on ac-
count of its complications.
Sore throat is a symptom in
several infectious diseases and
it is much better to call a doctor
at once than to waste time ex-
perimenting with home reme-
dies, there is less clanger of
having an epidemic traced to
your door. Years ago we were
most concerned about persons,
in the “peeling” stage of a dis
ease. We know now that it is
the discharges above mentioned
which contain the germs, and
that the scales do not carry the
infection unless the skin has
been soiled with the discharge.
The appearance of scarlet fe-
ver in a home should be immed-
iately followed by a rigid quar-
antine, but take no chances and
be on the safe side. If there is
any discharge from the nose,
mouth or ears, continue the
quarantine under the di rection
of a competent physician.
Especially remember that if
no physician is called in, the
head of the family, must, at
once', report every case of infec-
tious disease to the health offi-
AT FILM ACTOR ’
It isn’t often that an India.!
smiles—scarcely over does he
laugh, but a group of Indians
n the Fort MacLeod district of
Canada recently enjoyed a
laugh that was probably the
most boisterous in which they
had ever indulged.
Irving Cummings, who plays
the part of a gambler in “Cam-
eron of the Royal Mounted,”
which comes to the Electric
Theatre Thursday night of next
week, was the man who furn-
ished the laugh. Mr. Cum-
mings was dressed in the role
of a frontier gambler, and he
looked the part. One day, out
m “location,” he came across a
group of Indians. Recognizing
his attire as that worn by the
sportsmen, and always keen for
a game of chance, the Indians
invited Mr. Cummings to “deal
’em up.” Mr. Cummings had a
spare hour, and wishing to
oblige, sat in at the game. In
a few minutes the Indians pos-
sessed every dollar that the ac-
tor had with him. T h e y
thought it was a good joke that
ameteurs could “clean out a
professional gambler.” T h e n
when Mr. Cummings explained
that he wasn’t a gambler but an
I actor, the Indians laughed loud-
er than ever. A few hours la-
ter. when Mr. Cummings again
passed them on his way back to
the hotel, the Indians were st 11
Mr. Cummings lost about $5.
He says he is glad it wasn’t a
larger amount. The Indians
might have laughed themselves

The boll weovil canned live
upon any plant as food except
cotton in this state. The adult
beetle needs to be well fed just
prior to going into winters.
After the bolls have becom 9 dry
and hard and therefore do not
furnish suitable food material
for the adults, they feed u pon
the foliage and. will continue to
feed on second growth from the
base of the cotton stalks if the
top has shxd its leaves or Deem
killed by uarly frost.
Harvest the cotton crop a.s
soon as practical. The pi ant;i
or cott on stalks may be ei ther
plowed under or uprooted, piled
in rov/s and later burned. Al-
low no green cotton leaves to
exist. See to it that no second
growth ocurs or reoccurs after
this fall treatment. Deprive
the boll weevil of his fall supply
of food and force him into hi-
bernation or starve him to
death. The pasturing of cotton
stalks is not sufficient to keep
down second growth.
Some farmers practiced the
burning of hibernating quar-
ters last fall and cotton growing
adjacent to such treated lands
showed less boll weevil damage.
Cotton plants should be re-
moved from the soil or destroy-
ed as soon as practical in the
fall. One month before a kill-
ing frost will give quite a long
famine period for the adult
weevils. If this insect is forced
into winter quarters on an emp-
ty stomach, it has one chance in
fifteen to survive and awake in
the spring from the long winter
nap. The destruction of food
Diants in the early fall and also
the destruction of hibernating
places-will go a long ways to-
ward reducing the boll weevil
damage to a minimum next
spring. The boll weevil hiber-
nates in timber, grass, leaves,
out-buildings, hay stacks, thic-
kets, and growths on the banka*
and delivered in the fall.
“Another argument in favor
of Tall delivery is that some
nurserymen use large storage
houses for keeping the trees.
Such trees are usually not con-
sidered to be in as good condi-
tion as those wintered in the
“In the dryer districts of the
State if the trees are covered
with soil, both roots and limbs,
they will winter better; howev-
er it is not advisable to cover
the tops completely in sections
where there are long continued
rains, especialy if the ground
remains wet and soggy for a
long period of time.”_
The acreage of sweet potatoes
in Oklahoma has increased con-
siderably; and while the yield
probably will be no greater than
last year, nevertheless in order
to dispose of the crop to the
best advantage, more modern
storage houses will be needed.
Plans and specifications for the
construction of storage houses
hav-e been prepared by the U. S'.
Department of Agriculture and'
can be obtained by writing for
a copy of Farmers’ Bulletin 970,
“Sweet Potato Storage.”
The principle of modern stor-
age for sweet potatoes is to keep
them warm and dry. The first
ton to fifteen days after placing
the tubers in storage, the
house is kept at a temperature
of 85 degrees F., the ventilators
being kept open so that exces-
vSive moisture is driven off. Af-
ter being cured the roots will
keep six or seven months. After
the first two weeks the temper-
ature is lowered and kept at
-about 45 to 50 degrees F.
