I DESTROY BOLL WEEVIL Birds Assist Greatly in Holding Down Cotton Pest. Maadowlark Is Vindictive Enemy of Insect, Hunting for Prey Among Dead Stalk*—Never Injurious to Growing Crape. Birds of the woods and fields can- not be expected to kill out the boll weevil and prevent its spread, but they can, and do, help greatly. Any help that planters and the small cot- ton growers may receive from bird life will aid in controlling this pest of the southern agriculturist. The United States bureau of bio- logical survey has found that there are forty-three species of birds that devour millions of boll weevils. The experts of this bureau have issued a bulletin announcing that these birds are one of the most Important checkB upon the spread of the weevil. During the fall migrations of the swallows, the orchard and the Balti- more orioles I have watched these !birds, feeding by the hour on the jweevlls that are then flying freely, jtjya a writer in the Farm Progress, ^ome of the birds shot at th...

TO THE VOTERS OF DALLAS AND KAUFMAN COUNTIES: At the solicitation of many of the leading business men of Dallas and Dallas County, who believe that the commercial in- terests should have representation in the Legislature, I announce my candidacy for Floater of the 47th Representative District, composed of Dallas and Kaufman Counties.

When young Clarence Dayton atepped Into bis auto waiting (or him •t the depot at Short Hills on bla re- turn from the city, he had Just three miles to go to reach the family man- sion. There wasn't the slightest oc- casion for haste. He would simply take a seat on the veranda when be reached the house and probably fall •sleep. "Hit *er up!" That's what young Dayton said to the chauffeur as he entered the car. The chauffeur proceded to hit. As be had Just been Jilted by the cook at the Dayton mansion he was ready to face death. Farmer Saulbury was on his way to th« Tillage to do some "trading," and on the four fingers of his left band hta wife had tied four strings, lest he forget. They stood for a quart of molasses, a can of baking powder, three pounds of sugar and a package of starch.

But looking back over the campaign just closed, calmly and deliberately, I can see no act or word—spoken or printed—that seems to me unfair, unjust or unmanly.

EXCELLENT AS DAIRY COWS Dutch Belted Cattle Have 8ame Gen- eral Qualities of Holsteln and Give Large Milk Yield. Not very many pure bred herds of Dutch belted cattle are found any- where In America, and their appear- ance at the cattle shows always at- tracts attention because of the unus- ual color markings. Each animal possesses the broad white belt about the body presenting the appearance of a blanket. The Dutch belted cattle have the general qualities of the Holstelns and are Inclined to large milk yield. Ab the herds actually exist, they are Dutch Belted Cow. probably pot equal to several other breeds in average milk yield, but the comparison is hardly fair because there are ten herds of Holsteins, Jer- seys or Guernseys to one of the belt- ed, and it is easier to select compet- itive herds of more popular breeds. One of the best practical uses of thq pure bred stock is in crossing with other cattle. The grade heifer of part Dutch belted ancestry is pret- ty sure to be a good a...

He has had recorded against him the largest vote ever polled against a govern- or on the second term proposition. It is perhaps well for the state that Governor Colquitt has been re-elected. The rebuke administered may be tMSfffl- cient to teach him the lesson needed and to bring about changes and reforms for which Ramsey stood, without the fear of state-wide prohibition that Ramsey in- spired.
