THE TEXAS MESQU1TER WASTHEOLD STORY By HAROLD CARTER. "William," said the farmer' wife gently, coming up to where he sat and placing her arm round his neck, "what are you going to do about Bessie and her little girl?" The old man looked up angrily. "Do?" he repeated In a dull, mechan* leal way, "What do you suppose 1 am going to do? Nothing." "But we can't let her starve, dear." "She would have let roe starve," an- swered William Ives, staring Into the tire, "if there hadn't been minerals on that piece of land I owned and •old, Mary, where would we be now? In the poorhouse. 1 gave my best years to her and now—no. let her •warn her own living." "But the board won't appoint a mar- ried woman as a teacher when she 'has a child, even If her husband Is dead, William," said the anxious ^mother. "Won't you help her?" • "No," said her husband finally. Everyone In Iiocust knew the story. Commonplace enough, It was yet es- sentially one that finds its yearly «qulvalent in a thousand homes.

Since the telescope was invented. In 1608, astronomers have busied themselves tn endeavoring to ilnd out what this other world looks like at close quarters, and, thanks to many a fine photograph full of de- tail of landscape, we now have maps of that satellite which are at least as accurate as those we have of cer- tain countries and more ample than those of the heart of Africa and the Polar regions. The moon Is nearer to us than Is any other heavenly body; only 238,8113 miles divide it from us—a distance a bullet could cover In some eight days and an express train In some six months—a distance which seems short, indeed, when we recall the fact that the sun is four hundred times further from us. Our huge modern telescope. Instruments which, i...

THE TEXAS MESQU1TER I QUEEN LOSES THREAD OF CONVERSATION Queen Mary of England Is a poor conversationalist, according to ber most recent critics. On someone being brought up to ber it is Bald she wlii begin to talk with remarkable felicity, setting tbe other at ease and delighting him. Then, all of a sudden, she ceases, an acute silence supervenes, and the other does not know whether to break the pause or slip away. The fact Is the queen talks well by dint of con- centration; this does not always last until the end of the conversation and once the thread is broken she grows abstracted, thinking of something else. It Is suggested that her majesty has adopted the idea, not new to many politicians, of posting herself on a subject that she knows she will be called upon to discuss. Miss Muriel Wilson, one of the most popular girls In society, carried this Idea out to perfection, and thereby won the repu- tation of being one of the most inter- esting women in England. Nobody who has not b...

Vi ASSOC)* Friday, May 8, 1914. ^ Thk Dallas pastors are right in objecting to the Sabbath day being set aside as real estate tag day. It is amusing to observe Mr. Ferguson and a few of his fol- lowers trying to prove that Mr. Hall is not a good prohibitionist. President Wilson attended a circus the other day and fed peanuts to the elephant. Well, there is good reason to assume that the symbol of the Republi- can party was hungry, all right. the Mksquiteh extends con- gratulations to its friend, Mayor Holland of Dallas. He is about the only member of the board of commissioners of that city who has escaped arrest for speeding, etc. The daily newspapers insist on wording it a little different each day, but it seems to us that all that is necessary is to provide a fresh date line f...

\ II <1 THE TEXAS MESQUITER 3 PREPARING FOR WHEAT DISKING SHOULD BE USED IN CONNECTION WITH PLOWING. Dating Is Good Method of Preparing Seed Bed, Providing Work Is Well Done—Plow Pulverizes and Inverts the Soil. Disking Is a desirable method of pre- paring the seed-bed when used in con- nection with plowing, but it is a poor method when used alone? In a trial at the Kansas agricultural college a plot that had not been plowed for three years but where the seed bed had been prepared by disking Just be- fore planting, produced only 9 1-3 bush- els of wheat. The average yield for the last three years from seed-beds similarly prepared has been oaly 6 2-3 bushels to the acre. This yield is not sufficient to pay for the cost of pro- duction. On lighter types of soil, in the central and western parts of the state, this method has produced satis- factory cropB of wheat for a single season, but when the method is fol- lowed year after year it cannot be ex- pected to equal plowing or any ot...
