' AND HINDOO CATTLE
Okeechobee, Aug. 1. The success
of experiments to improve the beef
and rustling qualities of native cattle
by cross-breeding with' the Jebu, or
Brahma, cattle of India, is reported
by Ly tie '.Hull, manager of the South Southern
ern Southern cattle ranch here. There is a
scarcity of the Indian pure breds, ac according
cording according to Mr. Hull, but the seven seven-eights
eights seven-eights and three-quarter breds are not
uncommon and he has acquired nearly
300 of this type. The Indian cattle
are virtually free of ticks, he says,
which is attributed to an oily sub substance
stance substance exuded by the cattle. Mr. Hull
.says the Indian cattle have inherent
rustling qualities and "thrive on a
ration that will starve a goat."
The valuable, characteristics of the
Brahma cattle are transmitted to the
offspring, according to Mr. Hull,, and
experiments have proved, he adds,
that the strain of the Indian cattle
predominates in the hybrid after
cross breeding. :
He describes the 1 Brahma as "ex "extremely
tremely "extremely hardv" cattle, due to the
"hardships their1 ancestors have un
dergone in resisting v; the droughts,
floods, insect pests and general condi
tions in India."
"The Brahma r tendencies seem to
predominate," he says, "where there
is but a slight trace of the Brahma
blood. A cross or rather .an infusion
of the Indian blood into the native
herds makes an ideal range and beef
breed. Florida cattle are miniature
beeves, being well shaped, broad and
stocks. By crossing we enlarge upon
these qualities and add the best ones
of the Indian stockl
"During the time we have used the
Brahma stock we have found that in
crossing it with the milking strains of
this country, we transmit the rustling
qualities, reduce the quantity of milk,
.which is natural, crossing a beef and
milking strain, but improve upon the
richness in the majority of cases."

Chickweed a Pest In Lawn.
The most successful method of com combating
bating combating common chickweed In lawns,
according to specialists of the United
States Department of Agriculture, is
to rake out as much of the weed as
practicable in the early spring, using
a fine-tooth garden rake. This will
seriously retard the growth of the
weed. Commercial fertilizer should
be heavily applied Immediately after
raking and the lawn liberally seeded
with a good lawn-grass mixture. The
heavy growth of grass which should
result wiU tend to crowd out the shal
low-rooted chickweed. Constant mow
ing and watering throughout the grow
ing season will hamper the spread of
the pest The lawn should also be
rolled each spring.
One method of destroying chickweed
Is to allow chickens to have access to
the lawns early In the spring. Exten Extensive

cliemlcals for destroying chickweed,
but without marked success.

subject to mortgage indebtedness and
the amount of such indebtedness
Schedules of inquiry calling for this
information have been sent to all of
the persons reported in your city as
owning homes subjectto mortgage

The new Four-Cylinder Buick, here announced,

of its name.
Down to the very lait detail, this new model possesses
every quality of enduring serviceability, complete
comfort, and distinctive appearance that have always
characterized Buick automobiles.
The advent of this new Four makes the Buick 1922
line complete. It offers to purchasers of a car of this
size all the quality and service that go to make up
the name "Buick."
The engine, of course, is of the time-tested Buick
Valve-in-Head type. The year-after-year concentra concentration
tion concentration of Buick 's engineering skill and experience in
building Valve-in-Head motors assures the highest
standard of performance obtainable today.
Every other unit is of a quality equal to the power
plant. The whole assembly constitutes a perfectly
balanced chassis which is of typical Buick construction.
The equipment of Cord Tires is merely evidence of
the quality which characterizes the entire car.
Two open and two closed body types mounted on
the Buick built chassis comprise the new series.
Even the most casual inspection of the details of design
and. workmanship will reveal that full measure of qual quality

Obviously a high grade automobile a genuine Buick

Four even greater. A value such as this is possible
only because of the combination of Buick engineer engineering

production facilities developed over nearly a quarter

and service organization.
The Buick Motor Company is proud of the Buick

piece together some explanation of
this Miss HIgglesby-Browne and her
place in the scheme of things. It was

had assisted Aunt Jane to find herself,
and as a consequence Aunt Jane, for
the comparatively trifling outlay need needful

As the captain's angry thunder
died away came the small, anxious
voice of Aunt Jane.
"What's the matter? Oh, please tell
me what's the matter!" she was say saying
ing saying as she edged her way Into the
group. Her eyes, round, pale, blink blinking
ing blinking a little in the tropical glare,
roved over the circle until they lit on
me. Right where she stood Aunt Jane
petrified. Her poor little chin dropped
until It disappeared altogether. In the
folds of her plump neck, and she re remained
mained remained speechless, stricken. Immobile
as a wax figure In an exhibition.
"Aunt Jane," I said, "you must come
right back to shore with me." I spoke
calmly, for unless you are perfectly
calm with Aunt Jane you fluster her.
She replied only by a slight gob-
bling In her throat, but the other
woman spoke In a loud voice, ad addressed
dressed addressed not to me but to the universe
"The Young Person Is mad !" It was
an unmistakably British intonation.
This, then, was Miss Violet HIgglesby-Browne.
I saw a grim, bony,
stocky shapes in a companion fcos fcos-tume
tume fcos-tume to my aunt's. Around the edges
of her cork helmet her short iron-gray
hair visibly bristled. She had a mas massive
sive massive head, and a seamed and rugged
countenance which did Its best to live
down the humiliation of a ridiculous
little nose with no bridge.
But what riveted my eyes was the
deadly glare with, which hers were
turned on me. I "saw that not only
was she as certain pf my Identity as
though she had guided me from my
first tottering steps, but that In a
flash she had grasped my motives,
alms and purposes, and meant once
for all to face, out-general and defeat
me with great slaughter.
So she announced to the company
with deliberation: "The Young Per Person

It nettled me extremely.
"Mad!" I flung back at her. rBe rBe-cause

from such a situation as this? It
would be charitable to infer madness
In those who have led her Into it!"
When I reviewed this speech after afterward
ward afterward I realized that It was not, under
the circumstances, the best calculated
to win me friends.
"Jane!" said Miss Higglesby-Browne
In deep and awful tones, "the time has
come to prove your strength!"
Aunt Jane proved It by uttering a
shrill yelp, and clutehlng her hair
with a reckless disregard of- its hav having

stranger. So severe were her shrieks
and struggles that it was with diffi difficulty

I had seen Aunt Jane in hysterics
before she had them that time abdut

I hurried after her- neck and neck

and then she would only moan. I

awoke suddenly to a rhythmic heave
and throb which pervaded the ship.
Dropping Aunt Jane's hand I rushed
on deck. There lay the various pieces
of my baggage, and in the distance
the boat with the two brown rowers
was skipping shoreward over the rip
pies. As for the Rufus Smith, she
was under way, and- heading out of
the roadstead for the open sea.
I dashed aft to the captain, who
stood issuing orders in the voice of an
' "Captain!" I cried, "wait; turn
around! You must put my aunt and
me ashore !"
He whirled on me, showing a crim

already at the table. I slid unobtru unobtrusively

who glared at me savagely, as though
still embittered by the recollection of

the kindest air of making allowance

I hurriedly turned the subject

to eat her?"

rest to the ship, continued vigorously
to hack their way through the meal
with clattering knives and forks. Of

There's a heap tasks before us
And it somehow sort o seems
That the men who make great cations
Are the men who follow dreams.
We've been dreaming of world brother brotherhood.

And chaos would be certain
If the dreaming we should cease.
There's a dream somewhere within zas
Of a cation strong and great ;
Of a manhood good and coble.
With the pluck Instead of "fate."
Ifs a dream of love In action,
If en wholl lead the nations far.
With the Golden Rule before them
As their leading, guiding star.
Wt cannot stop at dreaming.
We have got to form a plan.
For the boy of today, tomorrow
Will be the Nation's man.
In our boyhood lies tomorrow.
