IMPROVE TEXAS SOIL 7U I Y Method for Bringing Orchard Into Better Fertility. Sowing Burr Clover Is Excellent Plan ■—Wornout Lands Can Best Be Re- stored by Planting Cowpeas and Turning Under. <By H. H. HARRINGTON, Texas Ex- periment Station.) One of the best methods for bringing an orchard into better fertility is to bow burr clover in the early fall. This clover will grow and soon cover the ground during the-winter and early epring. The burr clover will ripen its seed during the early part of the month of May, and should be then turned under and the laud kept in clean cultivation until the next fall, when the clover Beed left in the ground •will germinate and give you another covering for tho entire winter and early spring. The burr clover seed will not germinate during the summer, no matter how favorable the conditions may appear. It does not grow before cool weather of the fall, and it is not necessary in the spring to wait until the clover is all dead before plowing It under,...

plains*-] i M (is s KEEP AT IT, SAYS CHALMERS Business Success Depends on Consis- tency and Thoroughness and Eye to Future. Hugh Chalmers of Detroit, the man who quit a $72,000 a year job to enter the automobile manufacturing busi- ness and made good, told the Omaha Ad club at a banquet irt that city the other evening of "The Principles of Business Success " "It is easrer to make goods than to sell them," said Mr. Chalmers, so the principles of business success, as far as his mind was concerned, are in- volved in successful salesmanship. Advertising and the personality or the salesman were the two points empha- sized. "Advertising and publicity are the two greatest builders of confidence known to the business man," he said. *'A salesman can talk to only one or two people at the same time, so it might properly be said that salesman- ship applies only to the individual, while advertising reaches the public as well, because by advertising you can reach hundreds and thousands and millio...

Decoration for Fur Hats W* Si I'rIE home milliner has been able to find a turban cov- ered with fur of almoat any description and almost any shape. The matter of trim- ming it at home la a prob- lem of easy solution. Fur turbans are not exactly trimmed—they are dec- orated. The soft shapes, made without wire, carry bows, rosettes or motifs, applied flat to the body of the hat; or tinsel and silk roses, a smart cockade or an aigrette fastened on with an or- nament, all easy to procure and the trimming easy of accomplishment. Fashion permits the trimming to be placed anywhere, from back to front, at the sweet will and sense of style possessed by the wearer.

BREEDING FOR SUMMER EGGS '© SHED FOR MANURE SPREADER Farmer Who Has Part of Flock Lay- ing in Winter and Rest in Hot Weather Makes Money. (By M. C. CLINTON.) Nearly everybody wants winter eggs, but why not have our hens lay through the summer months as well? Chickens of a good many breeds batch in February, and ought to be- gin laying the latter part of June or early In July, Just when the winter layers are going off the Job. Pullets that commence laying about this time are not likely to moult very heavily the first year, and If they are well cared for they will lay right along through the summer months and well Into the winter. Of course, the demand for eggs Is much heavier In the winter than the summer, but then, too, the supply Is greater. The farmer's wife who will have part of her flocks laying during the Bummer months, will find she can arrange with customers In town to supply them with eggs all the year around at a fixed price. This is the kind of egg business which pays best...
