Small Grain Crop VitaTThis Year It Is Only Hope for Emergency Feed for Domestic Livestock The planting of small grain crops for stock gra/.ing this winter and car- •ly spring is the only- hope for many farmers this fall of obtaining feed for domestic stock. With a, fall season, oats, rye, barley and wheat can be plasted for grazing as soon as the forst of September, for spring grain, they should be planted about a month later. During the druth many farmers have observed the increased yiled fo corn on land that had a crop of vetch turned under on it this past spring. Permanent and lasting relief from much of the cronic drouth periods can be had by increasing the water- holding apacity of our soils by turning under a good crop of humus. The best crop adapted tor this is hairy vetch which can be grown in tiie winter while land is idle and which produces sufficient nitrogen for the use of the following crop as well as libc'rating other important fertilizer elements in the soil. Farmers who arc interested in a permanent relief program for their farms should see their county agent and arrange for a supply of vetch seed to start their farms on the road lo recovery of plant nutrients and moisture conservation.

Local committeemen are taking applications in all comunities at present .and wil be until next Saturday. August 18, which is the closing date for the applications.

Phenix mill, Columbus, Ga., part of the telegram read: "It is impossible to get justice from local attorneys. The city police are planning to win the murders on one of our boys.

More showers were promised for some of the Central states—Illinois and Indiana,—and forecasters said weather chanes should be more rapid from now on out, indicating that the drouth's long siege might be lifting.

Scorched pastures were given a new lease on life ai owners hoped that more livestock could be saved. Rain fell at the rate of one inch in one hour at Henryetta, Okla., a sight the natives had not seen since June 11. Light rains were general over the state, and in many instances it was the first measurable precipitation in two months. The Cheyenne Indians regarded the rain as an answer to their animal dance, staged on the North Canadian river Saturday, and prepared a celebration feast.
