WILD OATS THAT MAY
BE MADE TAME
California's Good Roads Give that
State an Immense Advantage
Editor Star: I am sending you by
parcel post some of the wild oats that
grow here in California. Also am
sending one of the stalks so you can
get an idea of the height it grows,
and thinking it might be cultivated
in Florida so as to be valuable there
as a cattle feed as it is used here both
for pasture and hay.
When growing it resembles the cul cultivated
tivated cultivated oats but has a heavier blade.
It appears the latter part of January
and ripens the first part of June.
While it is growing the nights are
quite cool or a little colder than
Florida at that time of year, but as
they get all through growing by the
time the hot days appear, I should
judge that they would not do well in
the summer season in Florida without
being well shaded, but I do think they
can be grown there in the same sea season
son season that oats are grown.
Am sending you these in hope you
may know of some one who would
like to try them out and se if they
may prove to be beneficial as a pas pasture
ture pasture for cattle and hogs; the great
advantage is in its being an annual
This part of California puts one in
mind of the climate of Florida as eve everything
rything everything is green in winter with cool
nights; the days warm up and the
rainy season is between the months
of November and April.
At the present time the grass is all
turning brown except what is irrigat-;

in summer that Florida has it would
be an ideal state, and if Florida had
the soil of this state no other state
of the Union could equal it. I believe
alfalfa can be grown there by prepar preparing
ing preparing the land and inoculating the soil
with some that alfalfa has grown on.
Am thinking I may come back
there next fall and bring some of the
seeds and plants that grow here to
plant there. I like the climate better
in Florida than I do here, but Florida
is behind this state in business enter enterprises,
prises, enterprises, and especially good roads.
Every one I met when driving from
Indiana to California last fall, who
had been here, praised this state for
its good roads. When I came into
the eastern part of California over
the Santa Fe trail far over the moun mountains
tains mountains and back into the wilderness
were fine macadamized roads and
there is a network of these roads all
over the state. An automobile can
make the trip from Los Angeles to
San Francisco in twelve to fourteen
hours, a distance of 500 miles.
California's Great Advantage
That is one of the advantages Cal California
ifornia California has over Florida. The tourist,
the native and those who contemplate
going to California realize the advan advantage
tage advantage of roads they can drive fifty
miles an hour on without jarring all
the bolts loose on the car or using
very much gasoline.
One man got 30 H miles on a gallon
of gasoline with his car on these
roads but that is the most mileage I
have heard of yet.
People come here from all over the
United States and when they realize
what advantages good roads hold out
to them they just want to buy a home
and stay here.
Now I am convinced after living in
Florida about six years and from
what I have sen in California that
California has been wise in building
splendid roads as good roads increase
the value of real estate. The tourist
is attracted, new settlers are bound
to come. It is a pleasure to drive
over the roads, time is saved in travel,
greater loads can be hauled with less
power, business is increased and there
are other advantages too numerous
to mention. That is why California
is ahead of Florida. The land here
sells for $1000 an acre and up. Why?
Because good roads attract peoole,
and the increase of real estate will
more than pay the cost of good roads,
leaving more money in theh ands of
one who sells his land than he could
ever expect to receive by trying to
keep up the old sand road which is a
waste of money when we stop and

"The bride was a picture of beauty
in her wedding gown, fashioned of
shimmering folds of rich white satin,
with an over drapers of real lace,
caught here and there with orange
blosoms, a court train falling from
the shoulders. Her tulle veil was ai ai-ranged

material holding it in graceful wreath

orange blososms encircling the head.
A shower bouquet of white roses,
showered with valley lilies, completed

"The bride entered with her father,
who gave her in marriage, while down
the opposite aisle came the groom
with his best man, Mr. Douglas Igou,

steps leading to the pulpit rostrum,
the matron of honor and maid of
honor at the top and the maids on
down to the lowest step, while on the.
opposite side were the ushers and
groomsmen in the same arrangement.
The bride and groom mounted the
steps and were met by Dr. Moore for
the ceremony which was beautiful and
impressive, and during which the
organ sounded soft strains.
"Immediately after the ceremony an
informal reception was held at the
home of the bride on West Lemon
avenue. The interior of the house was
lovely in decorations of ferns and
roses. The dining room was especially
attractive, streamers of pink tulle
interwoven with aspaargus fern,

edge of the table, which was covered
with a lace cloth.

I am sure you can make no mistake in laying in a supply of

talk the matter over.
A COSTLY MISTAKE
That is, thinking that you can pay a good price for a good automobile, feed
it any old sort of oil, and expect service and satisfaction from your car.
Do you realize that over 75 of motor breakdowns and engine trouble is
traceable directly to flint, or hard carbon ? Would you not believe a man crazy to
deliberately place a handful of gravel or broken glass in the cylinders of his car?
Naturally you would. Yet you place oils in your motor that produce carbon flinty
enough to cut any metal surface, no matter how hard it is. This is expensively
foolish. You did not understand it before, but:
If you will bring your car to us, we will have your engine washed out at
no cost to you, fill it up with Texaco Motor Oil Extra Heavy, and if you do not
immediately get more mileage per gallon of gas and per quart of oil, and notice
an improvement in the performance of your motor, we will give you the six quarts
of oil necessary to fill up your car.
TEXACO MOTOR OILS CANNOT MAKE A FLINT CARBON
Therefore, by using it you eliminated imperfect lubrication.
