WESTERN SEARCHLIGHT Ihís lion Something New Under the Here- ford Sun. It is with great pleasure that we announce to the ladies of Hereford that we are now ready to open a department of domestic science in our College. We have secured Miss Delia Harris, a graduate from the largest and best Agricultural and Industrial Colleges in the west, to take charge of it. The day has long since past when young ladies in order to be accom- plished must confine their education to foreign languages and art for now they must also be familiar with the art of cooking and sewing in order to hold their place among college women. We do not need to tell you how necessary it is for every housewife to know not only the way to cook food but also its chemical composi- tion and effect upon the body. The health and happiness of a family de- pends more upon the cookery than upon any one other thing, for as Owen Meredith says: We may live without poetry, music and art, We may live without conscience, and live wit...

WESTERN SEARCHLIGHT Ks Cleo Community, Castro County. We have at last had that long hoped for rain that was so badly needed. It came on the evening of Sept. 11th. We had one and one- half inches of rain, which will do some good to late crops if winter doesn't set in too early. Health of our community is very good at the present. S. J. Lee's little girl, who has been very sick with typhoid fever, is able to be up some. Mrs. W. P. Boyd, who has been very sick, we are glad to state, is improving. Kenneth E. Turner of Dimmitt was visiting in our community last Saturday and Sunday. Mr. and Mrs. H. Baker and daughter, Miss Emma, of Dimmitt made a business trip to our neigh- borhood last Saturday. John Obethier, who has been in Yoakum county improving his ranch, is back shaking hands with old friends again, but we are sorry to learn that he and his wife are pre- paring to move down there in the near future. While we are sorry to lose them from our community we wish them much success in the...

WESTERN SEARCHLIGHT ( RELIGIOUS THOUGHTS! J SPPPPPPPPPPPPPOPPCtJ&PCÜDP&Pfteee&frfctaPPPPPPOPPSPPS* Preaching at the several churches tomorrow. The Baptist young people have organized a Union which is starting off nicely. If the world cannot use you rest assured it will abuse you and vice versa. If you are not being abused very likely you are being used. Since College opened the Chris- tian Endeavor is becoming a stronger factor in christian circles having we learn a membership of 86.

The Epworth League has just undergone re-organization, the roll being revised and all those on roll who had lost all interest cut off. Prospects are bright for good work during the winter.

WESTERN SEARCHLIGHT i j 5 Our Notation for Time. Why is tirae^ divided into sixty minutes, each minute into sixty sec- onds, etc. ? asks Max Muller in the Fortnightly Review. Simply because in Babylon there existed by the side of the decimal system of notation, another system—the sexagesimal— which counted by sixties. Why that number áhould have been chosen is clear enough, and it speaks for the practical sense of those ancient Ba- bylonian merchants. There is no number which has so many divisors as sixty. The Babylonians divided the sun's daily journey into twenty- four parasangs. Each parasang or hour was divided into sixty minutes. A parasang is about a German mile, and Babylonian astronomers com- pared the progress made by the sun during one hour at the time of the equinox to the progress made by a good walker during the same time, both accomplishing one parasand. The whole course of the sun during the twenty-four parasangs, or 360 degrees. This system was handed on to the Greek...

WESTERN SEARCHLIGHT Market for Macaroni Sought. There has been such a notable in- crease in the production of macaro- ni wheat during the past few years, that the government is now engaged in trying to find a market for some of it abroad. Prof. Carleton, ce- realist of the department of agri- culture, has frequently pointed out how these hard varieties may be successfully utilized in making bread and that the loaves produced from macaroni wheat flour are equal if not superior to the product with which we are all familiar. It would seem that with these facts demonstrated there should not be much difficulty in finding a market at home, but the millers are slow in trying new experiments. This year it is estimated that the macaroni wheat crop of United States will be 10,000,000 bushels, compared with only 2,000,000 bushels in 1902, and it is believed that by next year the output will have increased to 25,- 000,000 bushels. With such a splendid outlook for this season and bright prospect...

Notice to Cattle Shippers. There seems to be a mistaken idea among the stockmen in the counties south of and tributary to the trail to this place, and more es- pecially in regard to water on the trail. Coming out of Col. Slaugh- ter's Running Water pasture the range is all open to Dimmitt. By turning off the trail to the right a few miles before reaching Dimmitt it is only four miles to Sam Wise's tank, where from two to three thousand cattle have watered in the pasUttpr weeks >nthout exhausting íe supply. Cattle will be watered and grazed at this place for two cents a day per head. There is but one lane on this trail to Hereford. It is twelve miles long, but at two places cattle can turn out and be watered and grazed for two cents a day per head. This is at Allen Bell's lake, ten miles south of Here- ford and at J. 0. Lindsey's place, seven miles south of Hereford. Should there be any delay in secur- ing cars and parties stay at Mr. Lindsey's place for three days or more, terms ...
