Among these things animate and Inanimate of whose influ- ence we are so dimly a prominent place should be accorded to "the farm dog,"—or probably it would be better to say the farm dogs, for it is rather unusual for • farmer to have only one canine helper and he may possess half a dozen, without giving any more thought to the subject than the aver- age city man would have to bestow upon one small four-footed servitor. For all that the busy and preoccu- pied farmer accepts the presence of «onsclous y. ihls favorite dog so much as a matter of course it is noticeable that the favored animal seems to have some mission as "man's best friend" that requires his presence on all occasions. Certainly a trip to town would be in- ...

Colquitt was a candidate for the Democratic rumination for Governor in 1910, he promised the people that if he were elected he would give us a season of "legislative rest and political peace." That we have not had it is apparent to all, and those who have kept up with the political affairs in Texas must .know that the Governor,himself, is largely responsible for that. Chosen at the same primary and elected on the same date were members of the Legislature and various other State officials, many of whom did not agree with the Governor on political questions. Instead of waiting until he was inaugurated and then attempting to bring about harmonious action between his department and the others, in order that the State might enjoy the promise...

TO ELECTRIFY WATER M - U ' I in Y i \ T.i< \ Benefits Which Are Said to Be Secured Are Two-Fold. System la Expected to Materially ln- ereaae Cropa and to Combat Effec- tually Drought, Insects and Other Troublea. (FROM THE SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN.) We have had occasion in these col- umns to refer repeatedly to experi- ments carried on by Sir Oliver Lodge and others on the influence of electric- ity on the growth of plants. Mr. Emilio Olsson of Buenos Aires, Argen- tine Republic, at present in the Unit- ed States, has of late years been giv- ing his attention to the practical de- velopment of a process in which it Is proposed to make use of electrified water for sprinkling fields. The in- ventor claims that his experiments demonstrate the practical utility of such a procedure. The benefits which are said to be secured are two-fold. First, there is a direct advantage to the plants, and secondly, Mr. Olsson states that according to his observa- tions various harmful Insects and other org...
