THINGS WE DON’T SEE
The man with good eyes in his head
sees many things—if he uses them.
The trouble with most of us, though,
is that wo do not UBe our eyes as much
as we should, or at least not in the

An official town booster wouldn’t

were necessary to pay him a respect-
able salary for using his eyes while

Our irrepressible office devil has
broken out again. This time he as-

strictly fresh until the hen lays an-

Just argue in the opposite direction

About this time each year we try
to mention the vice president, if we
amembei his name. It is so easy to
nobody any good.
If wo could open up the safety de-
posit vaults of the United States, and
the old stockings, and the tin cans,
and delve into the other secret hiding
places, we would probably find bil-
lions of dollars hoarded up and kept
out of circulation in just that way.
A billion dollars hidden away is of
no earthly use to anyone as long as
it remains hidden. But bring that
money out and put it into circulation
and prosperity immediately takes on a
new lease of life.
We have too much money in dark

PLENTY OF MONEY NOT

we need—more than any other coun-

But plenty of money is not enough
We need to have that money in cir-
Any fool can ask questions, but it
generally requires wisdom to answer
Why do wc find fault with this town
without advancing a remedy for the
condition of which we complain?
Why do we look upon others as
grasping when we are doing all we
can to grab everything possible for
Why do we feel resentment toward
more favored people while we perhaps
feel ourselves just a little superior to
those who are less fortunately situ-
ated than ourselves?
Why do we kick the dog out of our
way and then expect it to refrain from
biting us when we get in its way?
Why do we stretch the truth in
putting over a business deal and then
roar when sonic other fellow hooks us
in the same way?
Why do we spread the faults of
>thers while using every endeavor to
cover up our own?
Why do we consider other people’s
children “fresh” while the same
faults in our own are generally looked
upon as an early indication of a high
order of intelligence?
Why do we double up with mirth at

become peeved when the joke is on
Why do we so freely criticize our
neighbors and resent their criticisms
Why are we always right and oth-

The boll weevil can neither subsist
or develop on any other plant grown
in the S ate than cotton.
It passes the winter in the full
grown stage which is a beetle. It can
pass the winter in no other stage in
It hibernates to some extent in cot-
ton bolls. I have never found it in
the cotton plants or on the cotton
plants in hibernation any place, Okla-
homa or elsewhere, neither have I
known of others finding it hibernating
on or in any other part of the plant
other than bolls excepting in stored
About the time of the first killing
fro3t, the adult weevils fly from the
cotton fields seeking protection in such
places as will furnish shelter from
moisture especially, und also low tem-
Immature weevils are easily de-
stroyed by the freezing of the bolls,
consequently development is discon-
tinued as soon as the cotton plants
are severely singed by frost.
The hibernating weevils begin to
appear normally at the time when the
young cotton plants are beginning to
appear in the newly planted fields.
These hibernating weevils do not all
issue at once but continue to come
forth until the month of July. The
early issuing weevils feed on the ten-
der young leaves of the plants and
later on the developing squares.
In the developing squares and
young bolls, the females deposit the
eggs in punctures made by their
beaks. A set of teeth is in the end of
The punctures made for the recep-
. ion of the eggs are very similar to
the punctures made in the squares by
the weevils for food purposes.
Rarely more than one egg is depos-
ited in one square.
When the weevils become numer-
ous and the squures become scarce,
the females will lay eggs in the de-
Often more than one egg is depos-
ited in a single boll when the weevils
are numerous and the bolls are scarce.
As many as a dozen eggs may be
deposited in a single boll.
The females may deposit as many
ag one hundred and forty eggs each.
The eggs hatch within two or three
Th larva, grub or maggot as it may
be called is footless and develops only-
in the square or boll and in a period
of from seven to twelve days.
The pupa, or transitional stage of
the larva to the adult, takes placo
in the cavern of the equate or boll
made by the larva in obtaining its"
food. The pupal stage requires from
three to five days.
The total length of time requires
therefore between two to three weeks.
The time for a generation being
about six weeks.
Three to four generations can de-
velop in this State in one season.
The total progeny of one pair may-
amount to between four and five mil-
lions of boll weevils.
From » practical and scientific
standpoint, we advise that cotton
plants be destroyed one month before
the occurrence of the first killing frost
in the fall of the year. This brings
about either a forced hibernation or
death from starvation on the part of
the boll weevils.
Experiments shew that where 43
per eent of the weevils can Uvo over,
under norma! conditions of hiberna-
tion, only 3 per cent can live (ver win-

It matters not how the cotton plants
are destroyed provided they are de-
stroyed at the time above mentioned.
They may be either plowed under, up-
rooted, piled and thus for a short time
act as a trap in which the adults may
collect, then as soon as the leaves are
dry enough they may be burned thus
destroying them. The roots and main
stalks do’ not need to be consumed by
fire. Enough heat will be generated
by the burning of the leaves, under
proper methods of burning, not only
to destroy all weevils present but pre
vent further development.
The pasturing of cotton stalks is
not advisable since a second growth,
sometimes known as seppa cotton, de-
velops near the base of the plant, on
which weevils can subsist along with
the stock that may be using the cot-
ton fields for pasture.
The next phase of procedure is
proper preparation of a seed bed for
the following crop of cotton. This
depends largely upon local conditions
and is well known to all county agents
and practically all cotton growers.
Along with this consideration, is
the planting of an early maturing
variety of cotton and as early as con-
ditions will permit of a good stand
that wil develop rapidly.
All county agents and practically
all cotton growers are familiar with
the rapid development of cotton plant
growth under proper methods of cul-
tivation. One of the main things to
be considered, of course, is frequent
cultivation, thus maintaining a thor-
ough soil mulch and smooth surface,
the latter eliminating shade made by
clods or other plants than cotton. The
ground between the rows should be
lower than the cotton rows, thus aid-
ing to a certain extent' the accumula-
tion of the fallen squares near the
middle and their consequent exposure
to sunlight which has a tendency to
dry them before he young weevils

Retail sales of Ford Cars, trucks
and Fordson tractors have again ex-
ceeded the million mark for the year
1921, according to a statement given
out today by the Ford Motor Com-
The Ford factory and assembly
plant production figures reached a to-
tal of 1,050,740 cars, trucks and trac-
tors for the year, with retail sales by
dealers approximating 1,093,000 which
in the United States alone surpassed
the 1920 retail sales record by 104,213
Ford cars and trucks!
The Ford Company says the out-
look for 1922 is decidedly optimistic.
In fact, concrete evidences already
exist in that car and truck retail sales
for December, 1921, exceeded Decem-
ber, 1920, sales by almost 25 per cent,
and Fordson tractor retail sales for
the same periods show an increase of
over 100 per cent for December, 1921,
as well as an increase over the total
tractor sales for the month of Novem-
These facts seem to indicate that
not only are the fanners buying more
freely but that the general public is
becoming more responsive and recep-
Another point brought out by a
comparison of production figures for
the past two years shows that Ford
enclosed cars are gaining in popular-
ity, as 23 per cent of the 1921 produc-
tion were Sedans and Coupes as
against a total of 18 per cent for the
Recent reductions in Ford car and
truck prices brought them to a new
low level. The touring car now sells
for $348, the runabout for $319, the
coupe for $580, the sedan for $645, the
chassis for $285, and the truck for
$430, all f. o. b. Detroit.
This is the fourth price cut in the
past sixteen months. During that
time the price of the touring car alone
has been cut from $575 to $348, a re-
duction of 40 per cent. Reductions on
some of the other types have been
even greater. .
The Ford Company believes that
this reduction, while not a large one,
is especially important at this time
as it should go a long way toward
stabilizing market conditions.
Ford is giving employment at pres-
ent to approximately 40,000 men in his
main plant at Detroit, the importance
; of which is emphasized when consid-
eration is given to the fact that near-
The exemptions provided by the re-
venue act of 1921 are $1,000 for single
persons (the term including widows,
widowers, divorcees, and persons sep-
arated from husband and wife by
mutual agreement), $2,500 for married
persons whose net income was $6,000
or less, and $2,000 for married per-
sons whose net income was $5,000 or
more. Under the revenue act of 1918
the personal exemption allowed a
married person was $2,000, regardless
of the amount of net income. The
personal exemption allowed a married
person applies also to the head of a
family, man or woman who supports
in one household one or more rela-
tives by blood, marriage, or adoption.
The exemptions for dependents—a
person who receives his chief support
from the taxpayer and who is under
18 years of age or incapable of self-
support because mentally or physical-
ly defective—is increased from $200
The act requires that a return be
filed by every single person whose
net income for 1921 was $1,000 or
more, every married person whose net
income was $2,000 or more, and by
very person—single or married—
whose gross income was $5,000 or
The requirement to file a return of
gross income of $5,000 or more re-
gardless of net income is a new pro-
vision. Net income is gross income
less certain specified deductions for
business expenses, losses, bad debts,
etc., which are fully explained on the
Returns must be filed by married
couples whose combined net income
for 1921, including that of dependent
minor children, equaled or exceeded
$2,000, or if the combined gross in-
come equaled or exceeded $5,000,
