' Boys Band ,
' Wm. Burger who organized
the boys band last fail is again
instructing the boys after a rest
during the school vacation. The
writer interviewed Mr. Burger
recently and the band had twelve
' members with a prospect of
several new members, . The boys
do very well while practing as a
body, but there is not the time
t and interest given by the boys
during their home prat Lice. The
writer feels that a word from
this paper which will reach the
"parents and citizens of the
community with respect to en
couraging an organization of this
' nature would not be out of
place and would say that an or
ganization of this kind is sr step
higher for our community and it
would appear enly fair to Mr.
Burger that the boys be provided
with the necessary instruments
and the parents take an interest
to the extent of requiring their.
boy er boys to devote so much
time each day to practice. It
might sound from this writing
' as though Mr. Burger were dis
' eouraged with the support given
him but such is not true as the
writer be taken this means of
arousing more, .and greater in-
ten at In oar boy's band. Let
everyone help this organization.

Rabbit Drive, Success
300 PeopJeTAttend
Sudan- Grass Shows Up
A. B. Stalt Heading, Expects To Thresh At Once.
The rabbit drive last Sunday
at the Emil SwaiTSon ranch was
well attended by people all over
the county, about three 'hundred
were present The rabbits were
very numerous and various esti
mates were made as to fchVnum-
- "5 p'a 11 " woaih
and. About nve hundred were
killed and more would have been
disposed of if the correl had
been built on a larger plan. The
rabbits were everywhere, and
those 'present voted it the best
j time they have had . for years.'
Everyone had a club and the
many little incidents that hap-i
pened during the drive, if writ
ten were enough to fill good
sised . book. There will be
another drive s little later.
Neari everyuto in lone was
i out to the drive and manvi
made several trips loaded full.
Last Thursday Mr. snd Mrs.
Jos. Knappenberg, accompanied
by Rev. J. L. Jones and the
Journal editor made a pleasant

ffrowing Sudan Grass on dry
land. . A careful examination of
the ground showed exactly the
ame condition there as on hun
dreds of other dry farms in Mor
row County, worse if anything.
The seed was planted on June
21st in what could be called dry
dust, last Thursday the plants
its viewed by the party measured
ever five feet tall and were a
bright green with shoots coming
up all over the field. The grow
th was wonderful and when It
i known how little care this field
I'eoefved during the growing
period it will not be surprising if
there is not thousands of acres
planted to this wonderful grain.
Mr. Strait was assisted by his
brother who is helping him har
vest the seed. The field was
somewhat damaged Ly Jhe rab
bits and the grasshopers, but
what was left surely shows that
Sudan Grass is one ot the most
wonderful dry land crops
found, Every person present
could see that the ground was
nearly in the same condition
as the day it was first planted
to the seed. The patch was
about 12 acres in extent snd is
about ready for harvesting. Be
sides this he has 4 seres ofsor
gaum In fine shape and 4 seres
of Fettireta and also s large
patch of Egyptian corn all of
these crops have done well snd
show that this dry land farming
can be improved by addition of
these products to the regular
croos. ' If you want to be con
vinced eall at the St Clair ranch
and see for yourself. The 'grass
is a wonder and should receive
the attention of every farmer in
this ' district' Samples of the
product are on exhibition at thel
office ot Jos. Knappenberg' on
