K. LcMay, a member of the Riverside home demonstration club in LaFayelte county has thoroughly convinced her friends and neighbors that the home garden plays a very important part in the live-at-home' program, states Miss Ruby Mendenhall, extension economist in food preservation, University of Arkansas College of Agriculture. • Last winter Mrs. LeMay was selected as the county garden demonstrator for LaFayelte county. Her report shows that she was serving four vegetables, mustard, onions.lettuce and turnips, from her garden in January. Quite early in the spring she started her early tomato, pepper and cabbage plants in a hot bed. A little later she planted other vegetables In the open. Just as soon as one crop was harvested she replanted the ground and in this way kept all of her small garden plot producing throughout, the entire year. She says all the land in her garden grew at least two crops this year and much of it grew four. During the year she has had 22 different varieties.of vegetables growing in her garden. On June 20 the first ripe tomatoes were, served on her table .and. thoy .have been available every "day since that date. : Mrs. LcMay's garden has done much to keep down the grocery bill this year, by not allowing anything to go to waste. She says "I dispose of my garden products in three ways; , home . consumption; canning; and marketing the surplus. The largest portion was used at home. Most of oUr food so^ly came from iny garden.' I used the canning budget and filled my pantry stielves with vegetables and fruits to supply plenty for my table through the winter months." Mrs.' LeMay's pantry shelves are full of a good supply of big variety and excellent quality canned foods. She started working on her canning budget just as soon as'her vegetables were ready to use and she canned the products when they were in prime condition for use. In addition to her canned food she lias stored in bags and boxes, 40 pounds of dried limn beans, 2 bushels peas, 5 bushels of onions, 16 bushels of Irish potatoes and one peck of shelled pop-corn that were produced right in her garden. She has also dried peaches in her store room. Mrs. Lemay did all her own canning and helped several of her neighbors with their canning too. ' When there was a surplus of fresh vegetables after the canning was done, she sold it„to .the people on their farm, totals amounting to $25.05^ There are several larg¥ figUrejis fit Mrs. LeMay's garden that furnished, all the figs needed' for her preserves. There arc no weeds growing around the garden fence, but instead there are zonias, chrysanthemums and dahlias blooming profusely. Grand!

Scenic Beauty Is Basis for Court Suit Million Dollar Battle Looms Over Waters of Lake JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — (/P) — A million dollar legal battle over a question of scenic beauty, has begun in federal court here with former Senator James A. Reed, Kansas City, as an attorney, and Gutzon Borglum, famous sculptor, as a witness. The question is whether waters of the "Lake of the Ozarks" newly formed by the building of a $30,000,000 hydro-electric dam at Bagnell, Mo., has ruined or improved Mahatonka, a beauty spot of the Missouri Ozarks, owned by the estate of the wealthy Snyder family. Hahatonka, once adjudged the most beautiful scenic spot in Missouri, was a moutnainous tract of land, threaded with rivers and brooks, but now is partly, submerged by the, waters from the new dam built by the Union Electric company, St. Louis, which is defending the suit for ?1,000,000 damages, brought by the Snyder estate.

HOLLYWOOD.—The idol of Young America for more than a decade, Tom Mix has known hero worship as few others living have. And Mix, his friends say, tried honestly to live up to the small boy's conception of him as the dashing screen hero, and the resourceful conqueror of western, villains. Mix's life has been one not so far different from the types he played on )th,e< screen. Born in El Paso county, Texas, on January 6. 1880, he soon began his career of adventure and thrills when he joined the U. S. army in time to serve as a scout during the Spanish-Amer- rican war. . Service in the Philippines and China tfoliowed, after which Mix found army life to tame and join the British forces' in time ~to' 'falce ipart'iri the siege of La<f*smith in the Boer War in South Africa. When Madero raised the banner of revolution in Mexico, Mix was on hand to help in the taking of Juarez, and he narrowly missed getting shot by a Mexican firing squad for his pains. ... The story goes that just as a Nationalistic firing squad was ready to shoot the captured rebel, a body of Madero troops came up and saved the cowbor. • .Three years in the Texas Rangers and then a year as deputy U. S. marshal at Twin Buttes, Col., completed his military career. Fourteen buckshot were taken from his back after he had been fired on by Mexican horse thieves at Twin Buttes. Tom Mix got this first job in the movies purely by accident. While he was deputy marshal at Twin Buttes, he happened to ride to a ranch where a battery of movie cameras were shooting a cowboy scene. Mix had won the' national roping and riding contest for cowboys at Frescott, Arizona, the previous year, and admitted that he was "a pretty good cow hand" at the 'time. Interested, he asked if the movie scene was a private party, and being answered in the negative, he proceeded to rope, bulldog and tie a steer in 16 seconds. A movie contract was immediately forthcoming and Tom Mix left for Hollywood. ' • During .the period .from 1910, when he made his first picture, to 1925; Tom Mix and his famous horse "Tony 1 were unquestionably the screen's greatest drawing cards in the smaller cities and towns which form the major portion of the American movie audience. ' Mix drew the remarkable salary of 517,000 per week, and at one time his estate was estimated at more than $5,000,000. He built a "million dollar cabin" as he called it, in Hollywood, and proceeded to be miserable in it. Butlers and valets and chauffeurs and waxed floors were endured by the western star, but they were never really accepted by him. He told 'of one amusing incident which illustrates the way he felt Coward his new mode of living. "High-heel boots weren't made fo' polished floors,' and I slipped down as I came in the door," he said. " 'Go on and laugh,' I said to the butler when I noticed ,hlm holding his hand ove; his mouth. 'I'm just trying to be entertaining.' " The affection between Tox Mix and Tony is not a creaation of movie press agents. Mix bought the pony,for.?18, and thought of him almost as of . child. One of Mix's cowpuncher friends once asked him why he didn't .insure the horse for $500,000, since he was such a vital part of the screen star's drawing power. ' . : "Well, have you got your kid insured? 1 ' Mix fired-back." "Mone'y couldn't take Tony's place any more than it could a kid's place." The only thing in Hollywood which Mix really loved was his work. And the thing which appealed to him most about that was the constant danger and the thrills which came from narroy escapes. . "About the only injuries I have received are a fractured skull, a hole in the cheek, a crushed nose,' broken shoulder blades, crushed ribs, a splintered arm, a broken leg .and a crushed foot,' he said once, smilingly. : "And I've lost enough skin to paper a flat, but I'm still whole and able to do my turns and I like it," he went on.
