For the Farmer Suggestions to Farmers, j We suggest that you do not have your crop too thick. One good stalk of corn or cotton will produce more than two poor stalks. When your corn is fif- teen inches high, the small hair- ! like roots will almost meet be- tween the rows. You should therefore cultivate a9 nearly lev- el as possible. If you go deeper than two inches you will cut thousands of these roots and greatly damage your crop. Use a sweep or a very short toothed harrow that is narrow enough to go between the rows. Pull up up all weak plants, and destroy all suckers and weeds. These parasites suck the life blood from the plant just as vermin do from live stock. Plants, like animals must have a balanced ration with an abun- dance of nutritious food, if you expect the best results. The larger the plant, the more food it will need to assist it in its life work of producing and perfect- its crop. It is a very great mis- take to lay by and leave the crop when it is one-half or two-t...

CITY PLANNING FOR YOUNG CITIES - I ■1 ■ It is generally the little city that needs city planning most. A greater city may show the absence of it and the careless* ness of its promoters and build- ers more forcibly because of its greater size, but a small and growing city is just at a point in its life when it can correct in ad- j vance—if such a term is permis- ; sible—the mistakes that must, | under carelessness of accurate [ city plans, be revealed in the fu-1 ture. In a general way the city plan- | ning of a small city need not; be more elaborate than the look- j ing ahead to possible or proba- ble growth. The plans will, if the looking ahead be sensible, then suggest themselves. A crooked street, once a bend in the road, but being built upon can be easily corrected and tho new buildings or fences put where a larger city will some day require or desire them to be. If there is a pronounced low FROM DALLAS NEWS CONCERT OF ACTION. place in the road leading to the depot, a look ahead...

CITY PLANNING FOR YOUNG CITIES PROM DALLAS NEWS THE BACK YARD HYSTERY. - Just why a back yard in either a large or a small city should be regarded as a dumping place for everything; a place unworthy of beautifying; a stretch of badly kept premises, carefully hidden from view, is more than human intelligence can reason out. It is just as close to the living apartments of a family as the front of the house- maybe closer. The fact that it is used does not explain the myptery, for the front yard is used just as much. Probably the only reasonable explanation of it would be that mo6t people have a way of hiding unsightly things—poking them away—yet this is an explanation that doesn't explain, since the unsightly things in the back yard are seldom hidden. Maybe it's sheer laziness on the part of people. Maybe it's the idea at work that gives glad wel- come to the hookworm — lo it tj* morrow. Procrastination—ah, that's the word. Sieze it quick, before it getsa way. It'a procrastination— tha...

That is a serious question, and whether the problem has been solved by H. L. McKnight, in charge of the farm crops depart- ment of the farm crop3 depart- of the Texas Experiment Station at the A. and M. College, re- mains to be seen. Experiments of two years have given Mr. McKnight h'-pe, but he is not convinced tkat he has found the way, and he hesitates in ad- visiting others to follow his plan, yet he does not refu-e to talk to those who approach him. It is well known that all land which will grow peanuts has ground pests such as moles, gophers, field mice etc. In the eastern part of the state the mole is more prevalent. In the west- ern pat t of the state the gopher causes heavy loss. The ordinary way of planting peanuts is to chance to save their crop " "I am carrying on an experi- ment that is to ...
