i Texas in 1860-70 as Told by Pioneer Woman .. .. „ „„ _ _4U 1-i.u ^ * 4>,p Hfivil!'The leller smiled, touc! By MRS. R. F. MAHOOD Stamford, TeiaR. (Copyright, 1040, by the SouthwMt Co.) US. Ma KB of Ve Mary Oshorn, pioneer woman ernon, Texas, and a native Texan, was born in Collin county in 1850. Her parents, William G. and Mary Dewees, came to Texas in 1846 from the Old South and settled in Collin county. Land was cheap at that time and Mr. Dewees bought sev- eral thousand acres of the best Collin county bluckland, paying only 50c an acre for it. Later he sold most of the land at a good profit. Mrs. Osborn, as a child, can remember what North Texas look- ed like in the sixties and seventies. "The level prairies," she said, "were beauti- ful, covered with grass waist high over which roamed great herds of wild cattle and wild horses, antelope and deer. There were no fences — just open range—and neighbors were few and lived miles apart. Little attempt was made to farm the land—most...

CURRENT COMMENT By A STAFF EDITOR (Oopyright. 1940, by the Southwfet Maguine Co.) Second Line of Defense Is Building jlNDER the slogan "Be a modern minute man," Uncle Sam is build- ing a reserve army nearly 200,000 strong. A force of about 120,000 officers and 75,000 non-coms will be provided under the plan, the leaders and backbone of a second line of de- fense to be recruited after war starts, and built into a fighting machine be- hind the first line of land defense, the Regular Army and National Guard. The accent in the slogan is on the word "modern," for through sad ex- perience in 1917-18, the United States learned that a million men cannot "spring to arms overnight," as the late pacifist-minded Secretary of War Wil- liam Jennings Bryan once said. In the days of the original minute- men, citizens perhaps could become soldiers of a sort overnight. Every able-bodied man would simply get out his old squirrel gun, with which he was a dead shot, and march off with his neighbors. Use...

TEXAS FARM NEWS REPORTS More than 45 per cent of the 500,000 farms in Texas have no hogs to help keep the family in food, according to a recent farm census . Rut these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name. John 20:31.

"Old Mose," a veteran cow- horse on the E. V. Magill ranch west of Burnet, (Bur- net county), lost his patience with turkeys sharing his meals recently and, as one gobbler reached in to get a bite of corn, the horse bit his head off, then turned and watched the turkey flutter. Twin calves were born to a prize-winning Hereford cow owned by VV. D.

■tltflliMNSR ■ I Poultry News L,jy""/ <?uartm Producing Clean Eggs A good deal of time and hard work in the egg room "sanding off" dirty eggs can be saved by getting at this trouble before it begins. If ever the old saying, "Ah ohce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" applies, it does here. A few minutes and a little effort in changing nesting ma- teiial and gathering eggs frequent- ly will save a lote of time. An abundant supply of clean nesting material is the first pre- requisite to clean eggs. Ft-e^uent gathering will prevent excessive breakage and will help preserve in- terior quality as Well. Every time an egg is broken it means that the rest of the eggs in the nest must be cleaned. Use of Eggs in Industry Eggs are used in the manufac- ture of soap, ivory, pharmaceutical preparations, paints, glue, and varnishes. They are used as a fixing agent for pigment colors, as an adhesive, sizing for paper, by bookbinders in gilding books, in photography, in making printer's ink,...
