MONTHLY CROP SUMMARY FOR
The growing condition of wheat is
62 per cent. This is an increase of
11 per cent as compared with the
growing condition of last month.
The condition on same date last year
was 81 per cent. The conditions of
wheat is the poorest in the western
and extreme southwestern counties.
The best growing conditions are
found in northern and northeastern
counties, these counties received good
snows during the past* month which
have greatly benefited the wheat crop
in that section. Scarcity of mois
ture seems to be the only thing glid-
ing back conditions. The acreage
sown to wheat at the present time
shows a two per cent decrease as
compared with the acreage sown at
the same time one year ago. The
big decrease in acreage is shown
where condition* are poorest. In the
sixteen leading wheat counties the
acreage remains practically the s^me
as last year. The counties showihg
increases are those iji the northeast
j>art of the state and the counties
with smallest acreage. Our esti-
mate of the 1918 wheat acreage is
BOY ACCIDENTALLY KILLED
AND BABY BROTHER INJURED
A very sad accident occurrcd last
Thursday when a team raj away in
the bam lot at the home of J. (•'. Lyle
19 miles northwest of Texhoma.
Robert, the 11-year old son of Mr.
and Mrs. I,y!e was instantly killed
and his baby brother wan painfully
Injured. Their sister 1 years of age
who was also in the wagon when the
team ran away, escaped injuries.
Robert had just hauled a load of
maize from the field and unloaded
it into the granary. After the
maize was unloaded the litUe boy
and girl climbed into the empty wag-
on with their elder brother.
From some cause, unknown to the
father, the team became frightene I
and ran several times around the lot
before they were stopped. Robert,
with the little child in his arms was
thVown to the ground. The scream-
ing children attracted the attention
of ths father who was fn another lot
near the accident and upon his arrival
he found Robert lying dead with the
2-year old child in his arms. Upon
investigation he found that Robert's
skull had been crushed and that the
wagon wheel had passed over the
baby's leg. It is not known whether
the wheel passed over the elder boy's
head of whether his skull was crushed
when he struck the ground.
The little girl remained in the
wagon until the team was stopped
and as above stated was not injured.
Funeral services were held and
the body was lain to rest in the
Thompson cemetery Thursday.
The community in general extends
deepest sympathy to the bereaved
family in this their hour of bad-
BEAR DIED OF STARVATION
Folks will see no more of the big
brown bear in the cage at the city
park. During the cold weather last
week, when the water was frozen ov-
er in his pen no one thought enough
of the bear to feed her anything or
even give her water. When found
one morning last week she was lit-
erally and truly nothing but skin and
bones, having actually starved to
death from lack of water and food.
The News regrets to chronical such a
fact, but the dumb brute was so poor
and thin and light in weight that any
fellow of reasonable strength could
lift her remains from the ground and
hold them at arms length with one
hand. Whoever is responsible for it
certainly ought to have something to
think about. The bear was a big at-
traction for all the little folks who
kept it well fed in summer time and
sleek in appearance. Other towns
had ask for her but Mr. Larrahee
gave her to the city. That she was
alloWed to starve to death is a shame
and a disgrace.—Liberal News.

COUNTY AGENTS IN SOUTH.
That the county-agent plan of
carrying agricultural information to
the farmers is firmly established as
a satisfactory system in 16 Southern
States is known in review 0y officials
of the United States department of
Agriculture of progress made during
the last calendar year. A report of
this work recently made public shows
the status of this rapidly developing
agricultural organization in the South
during 191(5, and also discusses some
of the problems which are being met
in the effort to increase this service
in accordance with the country's
emergency agricultural needs. The
confidence of the States in the county-
agent plan is shown by the fact that
most of the legislatures in the South
are making liberal appropriations
to aid in its support.
There were employed in the 15
Southern States during the year 860
regular county agents, 28 assistant
county agents, 31 boys' club agents,
and (56 colored men agents for work
among the colored people. Eat h State
also has a director of extension and
a State agent or assistant director
in charge of the work of the county
agent. Women engaged in the home
demonstation work numbered 576.
Of these, 13 are State agents in
charge of the work in their respect-
ive States, 41 are assistants and dis-
tHct agents, and 513 county women
agents and 7 colored home demon-
Progress in organizing the county
agents' work in the South this year
was gratifying, officials of the de-
partment of agriculture say . The
last annual report shows the formation
of 1,654 community organizations of
farmers, with a membership of 44.-
548. The report of the present year
in increase to 2,508 organizations
with a membership of 78,660. This
report does not include cooperative
organizations not formed by the
county agents, even though they gave
active support and assistance to the
county representative and served in
the capacity of a community organ-
ization. Such associations include
local granges, farmer*' unions, and
churches and civic organizations of
various character Tt i: estimated
that 2,000,000 farmers arc enrolled in

you say. Well, It is guaranteed to per-
form miracles if you could believe
these hot water enthusiasts.
There are vast numbers of men and
women who, Immediately upon arising
In the morning, drink a glass of real
hot water with a teaspoonful of lime-
stone phosphate In It. This Is a very
excellent health measure. It Is In-
tended to flush the stomach, liver, kid-
neys and the thirty feet of Intestines
of the previous day's waste, sour bile
and Indigestible material left over In
the body which If not eliminated every
day, become food for the millions of
bacteria which Infest the bowels, the
quick result is poisons and toxins
which are then absorbed Into the blood
causing headache, bilious attacks, foul
breath, bad taste, colds, stomach trou-
ble, Kidney misery, sleeplessness. Im-
pure blood and all sorts of ailments.
People who feel good one day and
badly the next, but who simply can
not get feeling right are ur^eil to
obtain a Quarter pound of limestone
phosphate at the drug store. This
will cost very little but is sufficient
to make anyone a real crank on the
subject of Internnl ranltatlon.
Just as soap and het water act on
the skin, cleansing, sweetening and
freshening, so limestone phosphate and
hot water act on the stomach, liver,
kidneys and bowels. It Is vastly more
important to bathe^n the Inside than
on the outside, because the skin pore?
do not absorb Impurities Into the
blood, while the bowel pores do.
Hats off to the hen! She Is going
to help us win the war. Mr. Hoover
It has long been known that the
quickest and cheapest way of adding
to the meat supply is by producing
poultry. Eggs play very much the
same part in the food ration as meat.
Fondness for chicken is not confined
to Methodist ministers and Senegam-
blans, as some person^ profess to be-
lieve. We are a nation of poultry eat-
ers and the hen would probably be
adopted as the national, bird if the
eagle hadn't put in his aplication when
the Republic was young.
The British and French, so we are
told, are not so strong on poultry,
The British, especially, ar| beef eat-
ers and next to beef they prefer mut-
ton. Beef, pork and mutton are the
meats In demand on the western front
and the armies of our allies, as well
as our own armies, are going to get
what they want, or just as near it as
wo can supply. If there is to be a
shortage of red meat, it is going to
be with us stay-at-homes. That is
quite an Incentive to raise poultry.
Read what Mr. Hoover, has to say
about it in a letter to the American
"We are short of red meat. Our
soldiers and our allies require more
than ever before. We are advocating
in every household, every hotel and
restaurant in this country the substi-
tution of poultry for red meat. In-
creased production of poultry can be
effected much faster than beef, pork
and mutton. While we want increase
in all the latter, we must have a quick
response in poultry and poultry prod-
ucts. There is a great waste of poul-
try feeds from every household and
farm. It requires little labor. * Can-
not the poultry raisers of the country
help us by providing the increased
supply we need?"
So there you have it! The shortage
in meat is real and not fancied. The
demand for meats for war needs will
be for beef, pork and mutton. Our
substitute for those meats, it we can
get It, will be poultry.
U. S. Department of Agriculture sta-
tistics show that there are only forty
hens for each farm In the nation.
There Is a total of 6,371,502 farms in
the United States and 1,527,743 farms
reported no egg production in the last
census. In other words, almost one
farm in every four kept no hens. That
Is a ghastly showing in times when
ws need every food resource at its
highest efficiency. Oklahoma is far
above the average of the states in the
matter of poultry. More than a year
ago the State Board of Agriculture
published figures to show that there is
an average of about 70 hens to the
farm in Oklahoma. In some counties
there are more than 100 to the farm.
The present standard set by The U.
S. Department of Agriculture is for
100 hens to the farm. If the nuipber
of hens to the farm can be increased
in a year from forty to 100, it will
mean a production of something like
four million tons of poultry and eg?s.
Oklahoma can reach this standard
easily if the people can be convinced
of the necessity of more poultry and
that the increase can be made at a

winter eire of poultry is supplied by

homa A. & M. College at Stillwater:
