the program and a short devo
tional led by Rev L E Lewis of
the First Methodist church the
chief speaker of the convention
Mrs Mary Harris Armour of

change from the regular program

Armour had to make some dates
in Kansas and Missouri at once
and she left for those states im
mediately after her address on

Mrs Armours Address
Mrs Armour devoted herself
to a defense of prohibition and
to a scathing denouncement of
the liquor traffic of the land
Mrs Armour is a Georgia lady
bred and born and with the
warm and ardent characteristics
of the women of the south land
Shr is evidently not Llven to
nice little parlor talks and she
went at the topic in hand like a
southern cyclone She may be
called with considerable proprier
ty Carrie Nation minus the hatch
et and makes no bones about
a disposition to use the hatchet
under certain given provocation
Ilers was a passionate appeal of
is desperately
a live woman whose heart
perately in earnest She had the
enthusiastic support of most of
her audience
Over 1000 Pledged

taking pledges for the state
work was takenup and conducted

Those Army Worms i
Considerable interest has been j
shown in this city and vicinity
by the presence of what have
been called army worms One
of the MeCook public school chil
dren took personal interest
enough in the matter to write the
university people about them and
the following reply was received
The University of Nebraska
Lincoln Sept 20 1911 Miss
Lena C Falliek MeCook Neb
raska My Dear Miss Falliek
Your very interesting letter in
which you give an account of a
green worm or caterpillar that is
destroying things in MeCook has
been received I like the way
you describe it and the manner
in which you tell me about its
habits Without seeing specimens
of this caterpillar I was able to
tell that you were writing about
the young of the Beet or Russian
thistle Web worm which has been
very common in some parts of
middle and southwestern Nebras
ka during the past summer This
insect likes weeds better than
grass Sometimes it has eaten all
the weeds and then attacks al
falfa and clover as well as garden
plants These caterpillars will
soon dig into the ground and
they will change to little brown
things which we call chrysalids
and will live over winter in that
form Next spring they will come
out as light colored motlis
I do not think that they will
do any damage next year because
there are a number of kinds of
other insects that kill the cater
pillars Some of these are called
parasites These parasites live in
side of the caterpillars and chry
salids and when the parasites are
full grown the caterpillars are
dead Birds also like to eat these
worms and help to destroy them
