Simmons said favoniole that parts of the plant may wilt and die. Occasionally, evergreens that are partially shaded during the growing season by deciduous plants have fallen, and there may "be actual scorching of bark and needles because of the • rapid drying out .of the tissues. If the Fall has been dry. Mr. pickren advises, -a generous watering of evergreens before cold .weather sets in will be highly beneficial. Where it is not possible to] water the plants, the ground about the evergreens may be mulched 10 conserve moisture and prevent excessive- evaporation from the soil surface. Mulching will help even though the plants 'have been watered, and .this practice may also protect- the roots from .occasional injury by freezing of the soil. 'Sunburning and the drying effects of winds may be avoided by a wind-break or screen of some type. • Fresh barnyard manure is no r . advisable for winter mulching as it may stimulate growth during the warm psriods of winter % If is best- to use straw or pine needles.

Durin-j the five-year period. 192832, Arkansas farmers averaged 194 pcund.s of lint psr acre annually. "The total production and acreage figures give an even better Illustration of the increased efficiency of production, the extension specialist said. "In 1940. with an acreage omy 62 per cent as great as the average of 1928-32, the total production \yais H per cent, or about 190-COO bales, more than the average o.r^.the .ftye-yeav period. 1028-32." ~"'MrT: Simmons' said several factors or combinations of factors had caused the greater acreage yields. "Farmers, in reducing cottoi acreage, have put cotton on thci better land," he .said. "They havr u smaller acreage, and are thu able to care for it better. They iir using better varieties and they ar using ' greater quantities of soi iniilding crops. "Soil-building practices, especial Uowden varit^y.

Blend Lespedeza Seed Is Advice Of Inspector Lespedeza seed should be blemi- :d lo evenly, distribute impuritio's d make the lot uniform, Paul Millar, chief inspector of the state Plant Beard, said yesterday. A purity analysis of blended seerl •••ill usually hold up. he said, •"hcrcas successive analyses of un'•'ended lots will vary so much that r-fficials of a state seed laboratory may be compelled to report the seed mislabeled. Arkansas regulations prohibit the ^ale of fespeclessu seed if more than 500 dodder cr 25 Johnson grass •cods are present in each pound, Mr. Millar said. If between 100 ••nd 500 dodder seed are present i .special permit tag must be at- 1 ached to-the seed containers. The "jn-i -uU' opve'''\< .Johnson nrass same to operate, since electricity is figured out by the kilowatt hour, and its original cost Is only about one-third as ir.uch as four 25'$. , Put another way, Mrs. Fenton says, to get as much light as one lOO-watt bulb gives, two SO-watt or six 25-wutt bulbs are needed, since the small lamps are less efficient in producing light. The first, a single bulb, costs 15 cents; the second, two 80-watl bulbs, 26 cents; and the last, six bulbs, 60 i cents."Then, when the cost of electricity is counted at 4 cents a : kiio- v/att hour, hourly cost for lightin: with the lOO-watt bulb will be four-tenths of a cent, or $4 thousand hours. That's about the average life of a standard bulb But ut the same rate the two BO'i will cost five-tenths of a cent ai hour, or S5 per thousand hours the six 25's six-tenths of a cen an hour, or S3 a thousand hours.
