The total amount of capital Invested
In the manufacturing plant of Okla-
homa last year was $31,027,886. and
the value of the raw material used
was $32,998,672. The employers paid
out $10,299,960 In salaries and wages
and $1,001,118 for rent, Insurance and
taxes. Altogether 21,147 people were
employed, Including 2,036 working
owners, 16,974 male employes, 1,808
female employes and only 307 child

the schooling requirements of the Ok-
lahoma child labor law.

A brief note was printed in the last
report of this station regarding the oc-
currence of the leopard moth In Con-
necticut. Since this note was pub-
fished considerable evidence has been
brought to our attention of serious
damage to shade trees, especially
elms, by this Insect. Pruning of the
trees and especially the removal of
dead branches reveals the tunnels of
the leopard moth larva, which is a
borer In the branches and trunks of
many species of broad-leaved trees.
Several specimens of the adult moths
have been captured In New Haven,
but It was not known until recently
that the Insect Is doing much Injury
to the trees In Connecticut.
The leopard moth Is a European
pest, and like many other very Injuri-
ous Insects that we now have to fight,
was accidentally introduced into this
country, being first noticed In June,
1881, at Hoboken, N. J. Three years
later Dr. E. D. Southwick found It In-
juring trees in Central park, New
York city, and in 1894 pronounced it
one of the worst Insect pests attack-
ing shade trees. The leopard moth
was soon found In other cities near
New York, and In 1907 Mr. A. H. Kirk-
land, then superintendent In charge
of the work of suppressing the gypsy
and browntail moths In Massachus-
etts, called attention to Its presence
city and after deeding 20 acres to the
state, plat and sell the remainder.

El Reno.—The Canadian Farmers’
County Institute at n meeting the

has bent notified and has aeeepted.

Walter Committa Suicide.
Fnpulpa.—Al Simpson, 33 years old,
a waiter, committed suicide here by
swallowing a quantity of Carbolic
acid. Simpson had been morose atm
melancholy for several days, due to
overlndulgence In drink.
In Boston. During 1909 the writer
was Informed of its occurrence In
Providence, R. I., and also that many
of the fine elms of Cambridge, Mass.,
were threatened with destruction by
this insect. The leopard moth is re-
ported by Professor Smith as occur-
ring as far south as Long Branch, N.
J. As It first appeared In Hoboken, N.
J., It will be seen that like many other
European insects introduced into this
country It has Bpread northward much
more rapidly than In any other direc-
The position of the caterpillars tun-
neling in the branches, especially
when they are In the tops of large
trees, render them exceedingly diffi-
cult to reach. If the trees are pruned
or otherwise gone over systematically
ever year or two the burrows will cer-
tainly be detected and can be treated
by Injecting a few drops of carbon
disulphide from an oil can into each
and closing the opening with clay, put-
ty, grafting wax or newly made hard
soap. The poisonous fumes penetrate
throughout the galleries and will kill
the borers therein.
Wilting branches Indicate the pres-
ence of the borers and should be re-
moved and destroyed. All twigs and
limbs that break off during storms
should be gathered and b lrned, thus
destroying many of the borers tn their
tunnels. All female mothi should be
destroyed wherever found.

[ERE Is no svreetner of plar

inforcing delight.—J. R. Miller.
A good complexion is worth striving
for. - An inactive liver, the caqee of
uahy complexion Ills, Is a condition
that may be remedied, If not cured, by
close attention to diet and exercise.
The making of beds, Is said by those
wh® know,, to be the best of exercise
f®r the liver. Those who sit s grsat
deal ace apt to have sluggish Uvs*. A
gsed rule te observe Is to s4aad at
toast half aa how after set lag. walk-
tag slowly Is better; the food has thus
a better chance te digest
A cup of hot water taken oa rising
Is recommended by some physicians,
and a glass of cold water on retiring.
As to foods that will remedy this
state of liver, fruits, such as apples,
prunes, figs, dates and strawberries
are essentials of dally living. One
physician advocates the use of a few
ounces of plain molasses candy at the
end of a meal. Fruits may be eaten
at any time. All broths except mut-
ton are good; poultry and beef, vege-
tables and vegetable soups are desir-
able on this dietary list.
No treatment that la limited to tho
diet alone will show any beneficial re-
sults unless exercises are takes in
connection. Walking briskly should
be regarded as part of the treatment.
At feast an hour each day should be
spent in this healthful exercise. Night
and morning, when unrestrained by
fight clothing, different exercises
should be taken. An excellent one to
quicken the action of the liver is to
stand or sit twisting tbs body first t®
one side and then th® other as far
around as It can go without, one’s
moving on the seat; the object is to
pull cofds and muscles In the ab-
dominal region. Many exercises un-
less carefully followed are decidedly
harmful Instead of helpful.

(By 1. E. PAYNW. Colorado Agricultural
Thu history of the settlement of
Western Kansas nnd Western Ne-
braska shows that tho people who
kept milch cows wero able to hold
their claims and make themselves
homes, while many of their neighbors
who refused to be In partnership with
the cow failed. This has been found
true of the early settlers of Colorado
nnd other states. Homo people are
hbio to got along without cows, but
the chances are against the person
who makes tho attempt.
It seems to be one of tho foundation
principles of agriculture lhat no sys-
tem can long be followed at a profit
which does not make provision for re-
turning to the land In some form the
elements of fertility tnken from It by
the crops. Ho no system of farming
tins ever been successful for any great
length kif time tn any climate which
does not Include the keeping of live

grain, corn stalks and all other rough
food which Is produced on the farm Is
of a nature that market for It Is ex-
tremely limited. And some variety of
this rough feed Is produced In large
quantities In every community every
year. So much Is produced that If
th® growers tried to sell It all directly
for cash, It would not bring enough to
pay for hauling It to market. As
much Is produced forty miles from a

Th® cow will furnish a homo market
for all tho bulky feed which the farm-
er can ratio, and will take It, deliv-

One recipe will answer for all fruit
juices and may be bottled with or

time of year for making jelly, adding
sugar and cooking th#required time.
The amount of sugar to use In th®
fruit sirup depends upon the fruit
used, for grape juice a cupful of sugar
Is sufficient for a quart of th® Juice;
currants require more, a pint of sugar
to a quart of Jules. The only differ-
