' an ALFALFA FED HOGS. J . Hunch From Canyon City Sold at Ft. Worth Yards. Fort Worth, Texas, Dec. 10. What one man can do, another one ought to be able to do. F. Hoffman of Canyon City was here today" with sixty ' bogs averaging "39 pounds and sold for $4.70. The hogs hardly kuow what corn looks like. They were grown on alfalfa from the time they were tarrowed until taken up and fed for mar ket. Their feed consisted of ground rye and milomaize. Mr. Hoffman's ranch is situa ted in wnat is supposed to be one of the parts of Texas not suited for hog-raising, yet alfal fa, kaftir corn, milomaize and rye can be grown very profita bly. Buyers looked with as much favor on these milomaize, crack ed rye and alfalfa-fed hogs as tbey did on the corn-fat hogs from the Territories in the ad joining pens. The hogs looked as solid, and perhaps more vlieaHhy than did several buDt-: ted on corn. " The cost was a mere bagatelle d hardly considered, for on the same fields of alfalfa that were used to...

FROM CANYON CUV. Dear Index: After quite a delay I will write a few dots as we are housed in this morning baking our shins. A full grown norther came down on us last night, although it is nice and clear, which looks line to the old cows. I have just read Uncle Zekiel's comment on theconcluctoftho.se military youths at Denison. I say amen to what he says. A cigarette firm and a booze gug gler dressed up in uniform can get boozy, cuss, smoke cigar ettes and take in the public thoroughfares and come out in llyiug colors, but let a bunch of so called hayseeds try it and see the results. I think it hih time for those bigbmucketymucks at Austin to give the boll weevil a rest and look into affairs that would be a benefit to the state. We Plains people are going into winter in good shape, but can't say how we will come out in the spring. Some parts of the Plains made good crop.-;, while other portions made a failure. In this immediate neighborhood crops were good, also grass was fine, and t...

THE KAUFMAN INSTITUTE. A Business Meeting of Busines; IWen. K. D. Andon-on spoke on tho 5m1! worm especially, and touched on the main facts of the methods of com liating the boll weevil. In regard the boll worm he spoke as follows: The boll worm feeds on many plants, anil is espeeialiy fond ol corn. Kffs are laid on the silk ol the ears anil the worm that hatches from it is commonly known as the corn er.r worm. The worm, when full grown. roe.- to the ground and burrows down and there changes to a pupa. Later it emerges as a moth which flies ahcut in the r.ight laying eggs. This insect prefers corn to cotton, and if corn it planted about in the cotton field and dune corn planted later to form a feeding ground all summer, the worms will stay on the cojai nnd not seriously injure the cotton. By watching the corn when in ro:itimr ears and when worms are thick, it may be cut and fe'fp ftock so as to kill most ..fine worms. The worm pass the winter in the soil of the old corn nnd cotton f...

PLAINS COTTON. The ravages of the boll weevil in the central, southern and southeastern portions of the state the great co'tton growing region of Texas has opened up a new era; one of high prices, which, everything considered, promises good if not high prices for this staple foe several years to come. So far nothing has been found that will effectually check this weevil pest and many of these cotton farmers are look ing toward new fields. The question has of late been fre quently asked of the writer, will it grow on the Plains?,, The News can say that it has done so in the past and that the turnout has been fully equal to the cotton fields of the central portion of the state. This year in the vicinity of Clarendon, the average yield has been over half a bale per acre. Lubbock, about one hundred miles to the south of us, claims for this year an average of ten bales to seven acres, or nearly three-fourths ot a bale per acre. To the north of Randall county as far as l'0 miles it is als...
