Oakdale Echoes. The dry weather is gaining very serious proportions and un- less rain comes soon corn will be almost a total failure. Cotton is most all chopped and is looking well. Farms have never been so clean since we can remember—too dry to bring up the vegetation. Several went from here to court at Gainesville last week. Our community was almost de populated last Sunday on ac- count of Children's Day at Bar- ren's school house. F. M. Price, J. E. Price and P.M.Winfrey attended tha W. O.

For the Farmer Science in Agriculture. The value of science in agri- culture is no longer open to de- bate. We imagine it has been accepted by farmers more un- iversally than many of us have suspected, and that the attitude of the farmers, as a rule, is not so much that they must be "shown" as it is that they want the science "trotted out." Some dozen years ago, when Secretary of Agriculture Wilson came South and told us that this sec- tion of the country ought to grow big crops of corn, most of us were skeptical. We know, or thought we knew, all about the corn pos- sibilities, of this country. But Mr. Wilson has lived to see, and Dr. Knapp, whom he sent down here to trot i.ut the scierce lived to see theprophecy made good in large measure. Last year nine of the Southern States—Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georga, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisanu, Arkansas and Texai— produced neatly a billion bushels of corn, worth approximately half a billion dollars. This was an increas...

CITY PLANNING FOR YOUNG CITIES # That the surroundings of a depot in the averajca small city should be of the most uninviting and unattractive description is a fact that no logic can justify. The very fact that the sur- ronndings of the depot furnish the first impression of a town, and give a departing visitor whatever he may have to remem- ber it by, should make the scene about the depot, if anything, the most attractive in the town. Thefaot of the matter is that the average town depot shows up mighty discreditably. It may be a station built in attractive shape and of proper construction, but the surroundings are gener- ally squalid and indicative neith- er of business nor culture. AH about it are barren, dusty stretches of street, littered and cut up. Across the street aro Bhacks of unattractive sort, plentifully beplastered with lurid FROM DALLAS NEWS THE RAILROAD DEPOT. advertising signs and posters. j The boxes, barrels and debris of business houses are in plain sight.

For the Farmer Demand for Educated Ag- riculturists. President Milner of the Agri- cultural and Mechanical College stated, in an interview which the newspapers printed several days ago, that applications come to him continually for the services of young men who are graduated by that institution. He included the texts of some of the letters in his interview, and these showed that the graduates of the Aricul- tural and Mechanical College are wanted for farming, horticultural dairy an I live stock operation*" In most cases such as are com- petent to assume the manage- ment of rather large places were desired. Gew things are more certain than that within ten years at most all the arts of husbandry will be practiced in accordance with the established laws of science. Empiric methods will become obsolete, and be as ex- ceptiot.al as now thoy are com- mon. The highest price of the land and the inexorable need, growing out of the world's in- creasing population, for a large acreage producti...

CITY PLANNING FOR YOUNG CITIES Away back in early days of town-building there was some excuse for absence of sidewalks in a settlement that purported to be a town. There is absolutely none today for a town that pur- ports to be a city. In those early and more stren- uous and less enlightened times people paid less attention to civic improvement than now—gave it practically no thought, as many of our modern worries over town- building attest. There was no cement; brick was made by hand or later by a slow-producing machine. There were few factories producing even cinders for sidewalks, and FROM DALLAS NEWS SIDEWALKS. the locomotives burning coal ! were few. Thus it was that the sidewalk was a real luxury and people (walked in the mud cheerfully, appreciating it much when some good citizen had made a dry sideway of ashes before his ' door. ( Today some very small towns have a splendid array of solid sidewalks, unbroken stretches of them for miles in some cases, and these sidewalks are ...

The Home Circle A true home is a little frag- ment of heaven let down to earth to inspire us with patience and strength for the way. Praise the work of your child- ren, no matter how trivial the act. It will give them an honest de- sire to do better next time. If you wish your ceildren to be respectful to you, then you should be respectful to them. The boys and g r)s who are spoken to in a harsh, rough tone of voice nutur- ally fall into the habit of respond- ing in the same way. If the mother is in the habit, in her common conversation, of coloring facts, of exaggerating what she hears and relates, can she expect her children to grow up with a love and reverence for the truth? Do not think too much of your dignity. Do anything to make the boys think they are having a good time. In short, live with your boys. A little fun and good nature will go far toward turning work into play. When you geta a boy so that he will love hi-? home and his parents then you will have a stongarm to rest...
