That Old Guy.
тАв Mrs. "Carico, a middle-aged and talkative curalist, was appearing in a suit
brought by her husband. She insisted
on loudly commenting on each answer
given by tile first witness. Repeatedly
the judge requested her to keep quiet,
but she .persisted in audibly disputing
the words of the witness. Finally the.
judge said:
"Mrs: Carico, the court demands that
you remain, quiet. Unless you do so
you mill be held in contempt."
Giving the judge a savage look, the
woman turned to her attorney and inquired :
"Who is t h a t old guy that's buttin' in

A Conserving Food
The recognized value
While half the trades seem to' be
busy, to judge by advertisements,
producing coffeeless coffee, tanninless
tea,- and tobacco without nicotine, it
does seem a bit incredulous to learn
of seedsmen offering seeds guaranteed
to produce tobacco with from three to
ten times, as much nicotine content as
is found in ordinary smoking and
chewing grades* observes a writer in
the New York Times. Of course,
that is n o evidence that the time-honored belief that nicotine harms humans h a s been discarded, for in the
same seed catalogues one finds tobacco
seeds commended to the planter because they1' will produce leaf with the
minimum of the supposed poison. Doctors still tell us to smoke mild tobaccos, and the cigarette with its claim
that its makeup carries little nicotine
continues 4o grow in popularity.

"French war dogs are not the only
ones that could be taught to do great
service in the world struggle," remarked H. R. Turner, a Kentuckian,
discussing the marvelous feats performed by some of the dogs on the
battlefields of France..
"The dog of America commonly
called a cur has instinct for such secvice. Some patriotic women in the
West have undertaken to train dogs
for Bed Gross work, and they have
found that the 'cur' dog is possessed
of,all the natural qualifications for
war service. But, in my judgment,
the Kentucky hunting dog Is better
adapted for this woijk than any other
because of his wonderful Instincts. A
few years ago a sportsman of Iowa
had a hunting dog bred in Kentucky.
It was an unusually.fine dog and during the 'racing' season in Kentucky he
sent his dog back to Kentucky to take
part In the fox chasing. After the
sport was over the friends to whom
the animal had been sent lost him.
They were much perturbed, because
they had promised they would see
that the dog was sent safe back home
to Iowa. After many days of searching, however, they sent word to the
owner that the animal had disappeared. Sixty days afterward tho'y
were informed that the dog had returned to his home in Iowa."

Farmers Would Save Quail
to War on the Boll Weevil Texas Farmers Urged to
When a Georgia farmer found the
crop of a quail that he had killed on
his farm loaded with boll weevils he
immediately conferred with county authorities to ascertain if he could keep
hunters off his land, which is not
fenced. H e was very much disappointed when informed that he could not do
It is stated on good authority that
in farms in this part of the county
where the quail and other insect-destroying birds have been protected the
boll Weevil is but seldom seen, While
on adjoining farms, where the public is
permitted to hunt, cotton crops have
-been practically devastated by them.
A concerted movement is now on
toot among the farmers to conserve the
quail in an effort to combat the boll
weevil. T h e jnatter will In.all probability be brought to the attention of
the legislature when It meets this summer, with the Idea of "having more
stringent laws passed fo* the protection of insect-destroying birds.
Produce Peanuts for Use
in Both Meal and Butter
That former peanut manufacturer
who said that people could exist for a
long time on nothing else but peariut
butter and crackers was doing a little
gratuitous advertising for crackers,
asserts the Houston Post. There is
no reason why Texas peanuts should
not furnish both bread and butter for
all Texas people and there might be
enough for a few favored mortals In
other states. If the food and feed;
campaign which is being conducted
should result In the pi anting of 1,000,000 acres in peanuts (his year, Texas
farmers will be richer by some $50,000,000 and the food, supply will contain,
a plenty of one of the best foods in
the world. And then if the food administration shall force the peanut
factories to make a reasonable proportion of the nuts into edible meal the
country Will have plenty of bread material as well as a liberal layer of butter for every slice.
At a recent hearing of the Federal Trade Gommission there
was intrdduced correspondence taken from the private files of
Swift St Company, which showedthat the Company had been considering for some time an educational advertising campaign.
The need for this publicity has been apparent to us for sev1
years* The gross misrepresentation to which w e have
recently been subjected has .convinced us that w e should no longer
delay in putting before the public the basic facts of our business,
relying on the fair-mindedness of the American people.
, The feeling against the American packer is based largely on
the belief that the income and well-being of the producer and
consumer are adversely affected by the packers' operations,
resulting in unreasonably large profits.
Swift & Company's net profit is reasonable, and represents
an insignificant factor in the cost of living.
For the fiscal year 1917 the total sales and net profit of Swift
& Company were as follows:
This is equivalent to a $3,465. profit on a business of $87,500.

Talking Photoplays Next;
Eliminates the Phonograph
and Utilizes Film Record
Numerous attempts have been made
to link the phonograph with the projector and give speech to the silent
drama. Inability to obtain perfect
synchronism of sound and motion has
been only one of the bugaboos encountered. The limited capacity of
talking-machine records, the difficulty
of amplifying the sound suflicientlj
for theater purposes Without increasing the foreign noises to an objectionable degree, and t h e Impossibility of
cutting or mending a film without destroying the usefulness of the sound
record have been other of the bewildering enigmas. Their solution has
finally been undertaken in a new way
and highly promising results attained.
The newest system of talking cinematography eliminates the phonograph
and utilizes a film record that is produced by photographic and rendered

means. This enables the sound and
the picture records to be of corresponding lengths and synchronous. This
