A Letter to Old Man Eli. "There was a time long ago, ai d we are glad that it is gone, when a store could mark the goods 150 per cent, then change the price to suit themselves and make the cus oaier believe that she was getting the biggest bargain that was ever packed away by the arms of a shrewd buyer. That day has gone, and peace to its ashes. A man must prove by his dealings that his integrity is at par value and that he would prefer your friendship rather than your dollars if such a decision should have to be made, before he would rely on big head lines to establish his reliability. "In your store the goods are marked in plain figures. The price is the same to all, rich or poor and the goods are sold on securely as th< shrewdest shop- per th«t ever picked a piece of dreps goods to clirtds." your approval—no trade until you are satisfied, except in goods capacity we will that are cut, when you should not expect one to take back Yes, we think we are safe in saying that nearly a...

Pick out your best bird now, feed him for weight, and get half a hundred dollars for him. Why Hens Cackls. Miller Purvis, the poultry ex- pert, writing in Breeders Gazette, gives it as his opinion that the "cackle" of the hen is a relic of the jungle fowl from which our domestic hens are descendants. He has observed that hens in close confinement either cackle a very short while after laying or do not cackle at all. In India the home of the jun- gle fowl, there are a great many predatory animals. The female j jungle fowl steals quietly away Enemies of the Peach. Of the diseases that affect the peach, the heaviest losses are due to the brown rot and scab or black spot, and on the insect side ...

CITY PLANNING FOR YOUNG CITIES FROM DALLAS NEWS THE VALUE OF THE VISITOR. To a great many people familar with the largest cities there is positive and emphatic relief in living, if only for a day or two, in a smaller one. But so very many of the small- er cities fail to grasp this and make the most of it. The visitor, wearied of elevated railroads and rigid paved streets, wants a change, to be sure, but but he doesn'c necessarily want untidiness and squalor about him and given him as an inducement toward his staying. It would be foolish for those interested in a small citv to at- temp to make it equal New York City. That can't be done, in a day, month or year. Neither does the visitor referred to want it so. He wants to see the home peo- ple in their home town. He wants to feel free and easy. He wants to let his mind rest and enjoy life as exemplified by a small but up-to-date city. He does not want to occupy a dirty bedroom in an unclean hotel, and he doesn't want to see barren, un...

For the Farmer Fight the Boll Worms. Wilmon Newell State Entomo- logist of Texas and Professor of Entomology at the A. and M. College of Texas, says of th^ Boll Worm : The control of the boll worm is rather difficult. However, the principal methods of control con- sist in, plowing earn, pea and cotton landa daring the early 1 winter so as tu break up and ex- pose the under ground pupal cells in which the boll worm hi- bernates. By breaking up these cells aud plowing the land the insects are exposed to weather conditions and to attack by birds. The efficiency of this treatment will be inereased if the land is disked or dragged two or three times during the winter months. The second method of combat- ing the boll worm lies in making use of corn as a trap crop in such a way as to protect the cotton. It has been noticed that a gener- ation of boll worms mature in the corn just before it hardens. killing each other, the cutton crop can be quite well protect ed. To Combat the Striped riel...

I > J CITY PLANNING FOR YOUNG CITIES FROM DALLAS NEWS CHANGES AND ALTERATIONS. It cannot be denied that a great deal of laokneaa has char- acterized the management of most towns at some point or other of their life. It shows itself in irregularity of street line. It bobs up in the fencing in by private parties of alleys supoaed to be dedicated to public use; in the use of side* walks for the storage of things; in the permitting of the dumping of garbage in the guttera and in a thousand and one other ways. The chances are that when the town was first laid off regular lines were laid down, and the ex pectation was that people would be interested enough to follow them. Then, say, John Smith decides that he will fence in the space al- loted to side-walk purposes, but seldom used. He wants to build a shed on it. Next door, Bill Smith, preferr- ing to have a fence as far for- ward as his brother's, builds it accordingly, though adjoining him the unimproved Davis prop- erty has a fence ...
