News Briefs- Helpful Hint: Farmers who are troubled with the Texas fly pest, should take note of the following: An exchange says, "A farmer informs us that one of his cows had many flies on her and did not have her bag full of milk. He went to his barnyard and got a handful of smartweed, rubbed it up and rubbed the cow with it. At the next milking the flies were not there and the bag was full of milk. At another time he rubbed one side of the cow with the smart weed and at the next milking the bag on the side that was rubbed with the weed was full while the other side was lank.
