y H W-, SOCIETY NOTES 5 O Rose-fete and Flower Luncheon June, the month of roses and weddings is the ideal month óf entertaining and when members of the Quid Nunc Club received invitation to a luncheon, at the lovely, new, colonial home of Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Hail, all gladly responded, feeling sure of a day of rare pleasure. Mrs. Hail and Mrs. Page, the two club entertainers, have given, their hospitality, but this entertainment of the distin- guished Quid Nunc surpassed anything yet undertaken. The doors of this lovely, new- lv-finished home were thrown open for the first time, and the broad veranda, majestic in ap- pearance, with its concrete floor and steps was converted into a Reception Porch and gave the keynote to interior decorations. It was here, that Mrs. Hail and Mrs. Page received their guests.

Why a road as level as a floor and as straight as a line would become monotonous from sheer sameness. We want a road that winds in and out among the pine clad hills and through lanes that are mixed with sunshine and shadow. We want to drive slowly through t...

SHEEP «RE OFTEN NEGLECTED Mo Farm Animal More Capable of Adapting Itself to Different Meth- ods of Treatment. Too many farmers are overlooking a good opportunity by neglecting to have sheep on the farm. Men who do not like sheep must either learn to Uke them or keep out of the business. Men who do like them will take care of them, and when they are taken care of they are no more liable to dis- ease than any other farm animal. The sheep is the most modern ani- mal in creation. By that we mean that he has left no fossil remains of his own kind or ancestry. He is a de- velopment of the last days of creation and of about the same geological age as mankind. There la no animal on the farm that is more capable of re- sponding to different methods of treatment and adapting himself to different environments than is the sheep. ^ He can be bred into almost any- thing of the sheep kind. Long, coarse wool, or short, fine wool, horns or no horno, bjack or white, a big carcass for mutton^ or other...

If you are wtoe, you will not be too curious, but will allow the Instinct of the hen to do her work. It may be well to quiet- ly reach under the hen and remove such egg shells as can be taken out without disturbing her, but nothing further should be attempted. The first duty is to provide a coop for the hen and brood. No matter what kind of a coop, from a barrel laid down to the most improved pat- ented article, is used. See that it is clean and the bottom covered with And sand, or if the weather be really cold, with oat chaff or short fine hay.

TEXAS CROP CONDITIONS e O o Dallas, Tex., July 29. —Texas has been facing drouth condi- tions except for local showers more or less general over the state, for many weeks, and is feeling the consequences. A trip across the state with close ob- servation of the crops would 3eave the observer in a very mix- ed up condition of mind. He would see corn of all sizes and stages, and all degrees of suffer- ing from drouth; and cotton from a few inches high to the bloom- ing and fruiting stages. The injury to the corn is becoming marked, and our advice to the farmers who have silos is to cut and ensilage their crops before they get too yellow, and play a stream of water into the blower while the filling is taking place. If corn has not sufficient moist- ure during the fruiting stage it will not make ears, and the nub- bins will be far better for live- stock if chopped up and fed green with the remainder of the plant than in the shape of a half- sized cob with a few lonesome grains on it. The...

Towery of the Tow- ery Motor Company, has just re- turned from Houston, and an- nounces he has closed a contract with Robertson & Pearson, Inc., Fordson Tractor demonstrators, for the sale of the Fordson Trac- tor for this locality. The tractor is made by Henry Ford, who manufactures the Ford automo- biles, and is the result of exten- sive trials and experiments cov- ering a period of many months carried out by him in this coun- try and abroad. The tractor is designed as a utility farm implement, and is admirably suited to the needs of the' small farmer who cultivates from 50 to 60 acres of land, as it only weighs 2,700 pounds when full of fuel and ready for work. It will turn in a 21 foot circle and with the specially designed implments which are used with it, one man can operate...

Commercial Club of Crockett WEEKLY BULLETIN THE CROCKETT FARM LOAN ASSOCIATION Edited by H. A. Fisher, Secretary How It Is Helping Our Farmers and Some New Features The Crockett Farm Loan As- sociation, which is serving the entire county, is performing a most substantial service, as the figures that follow will testify. One year ago at a special meet- ing of the board of directors of the Crockett Commercial Club it was decided to put the support- ing influence of the club behind the movement to permanently establish a local association con- nected with the Federal Land Bank at Houston, through a charter granted by the federal authority at Washington, so that the farmers of Houston county could secure this 51/2 per cent long time government money to enable them to own farm homes and become independent. When it was announced that this action had been taken all of the other associations that had been partially organized in the county dissolved and the appli- cants transferred their mem...
