I have two requests to-day,
one from Bt atifo;d Knapp Chief
of the Bureau of Agriculture of
Washington D. C. and one from
Jaa. A. Wilson, Director of Ex-
tension and State Agent of Still-
water, Okla., calling our atten-
tion again to the importance of
making a complete farm survey
of all available wheat, oats, rye
and barley that is well matured
and suitable for planting purpos-
es. We want the address of
every man in the county having
any of the above seed for sale to
please bring or send us a sample
to mf office with the Tax Asses-
sor and put your address and
price on it: we also want the ad-
dress of every farmer in the
county that will need any of the
above seed for planting purposes
The Standardization Act ia a
law which means much to the
Wheat growers of this county,
provided that they organize and
standardize with the proper seed
Therefore, the community hav-
ing the seed ia in a position to
transform paesent failure to fu
ture success. Who will be the
first to call a school house meet-
ing for the purpose of organiz-
ing a community league to stan-
dardize on some one farm crop
or breed of liv© stock. ' Wheat
is a good one” I will come and
assist if "possible.
F. F. Packer, County Agent.
Notwithstanding the people ot
Lone Wolf had been misinform-
ed as to the day Col. Harvey
wou'd be through here and not-
withstanding the fact that har-
vest was in full blast last S *t.ui-
a large number of our c-ti
zens gat head up and went <>ui
to the Jake Downen farm
ami gave him a cordial reception
There were about twenty cars
ai d they felt in behind and ac-
companied the party to the river
Orjiy a short stop was made in
Lone Wolf. At the Hurvey foun-
tain just this side of the river a
stop was made and many cars
from Granite came out to greet
;he Col. and his party.
The Spring which Mr. C. M.
Davis has fixed up and given to
the Trail is a fine thing. Many
a weary thirsty traveler will in
the times to come, thank Mr.
Davis for his forsight and gen-
erosity. Two bands were on
hand at the fountain and dis-
coursed patriotic music. Col.
Harvey’s address in accepting
the fountain was a classic. It
was sensible and scholarly,
After imbibing freely of the
fountain’s pur© water, the party
moved on to Granite, and the
Lobe Wolf contingent returned
Lone Wolf Peoyle Give
$198, to Red Groes
I HOES, to p Cotton At Dead Cost,
Post Master Christopher, in-
forms us tnat the total subscrip-
tions to the Red Cross fund
amounts to $198. Coming im-
mediately after our subscription
of $7300. to the Liberty Loan,
we think this is a showing that
any town the size of Lone Wolf
should be proud of. Our citizens
can not be accused of being
backward or pinchy with their
money. Money was never given
for a nobler purpose than this
given for the Red Cross.

Hi A DU
Advices state that an immense
throng is in attendence at the
Amarillo Convention. To-day
orb ^morrow the mon^ntgps
dwstion as^p which of the con-
tending routes shall be officially
designated as the Ozark Trail
will be decided. While we have
every reason to believe that the
central route will bs chosen, we
are not going to be puffed up if
it is. or caat down if it is not,
Every dollar of money and every
day of labor apent in imgroving
the different roads is well spent.
The Ozark Trail has been in the
lime light for many moons. Hun-
dreds of columns of good roads
dope, has been printed each
week by the papers along the
line. An interest in high ways
never known before has been
Too late now to do much plant-
ing for increasing production.
Most farmers already have all
crops planted that they can cul-
tivate right. Some have more
than they can take care of. In
some cases, would it not be pat-
riotic for neighbor* who have
their own fields clem and culti-
vated to spend a little time visit-
ing the weedy field* of his nei*
s ghbors who have gotten behind
i with their work, taking tools
| with them, and making the land
11 give ita beat yield. Some ef tf*
» need encouragement when the
weeds are hiding the crops, and
a rew “parties” of this kind
would help to change crop fail-
| urea to profitable returns. It
| might also improve the patriot-
s im of nil concerned.
| it has been suggested that
11 “we ean often help our country
I beat by helping our neighbors.”
