Corn picking has just started with farmers reporting that 25 per cent of the ears have fallen from the stalk. Yields will be less than anticipated. Lack of moisture is causing serious feed losses and hay may run short by next spring. Many cows are now being fed grain and hay. The Aurora Borealis is a display of light in the high levels of the earth's atmosphere, associated with high sunspot activity and world - wide magnetic - electric storms. f\avor Blend tasty Dish" THE MORE TENDER MORE DELICIOUS MACARONI HOME PREPARED LOOK PEAR--THIS IS NATIONAL NEWS- FftPERBOV DAY SO I THOU6MT I'D PRACTICE UP .

State irna HARDWARE STORE ALINEO'PIPE Stick to the Pipe—Let the Smoke Blow Where It Will By T. PIPE STORM WINDOW TIME Get the windows from the basement, Putty them and wash them clean; , Borrow then your neighbor's ladder, Put them on e'er winds blow keen. Do not wait till wintry weather, Fills the air with snowllakes gay; Put them on while sunbeams flitter, On a pleasant autumn day. Summer time has come and wented, Swift it passed and left us, then, Though they scarce had off been taken, "Windows must go on again. So get out the storm sash brother, While the sun shines put them on; Do not wait, then freeze youi fingers, When the warm days all are gone. . A ^r ^"^^ Which why do people take off the storm windows off at all Is an unanswered question of considerable merit. The total time tha storm windows spend In the basement compared with the actual time spent in reposing on the side of a house, if any, !s so small and insignificant that it hardly seems worth the while to ever remove them from the said house sides. As this is written we have all of our house storm windows washed, puttied and in put upable condition. Also several are applied to the down stairs portion of our humble domicile and we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our regular storm window applier and taker offer man for the erection of the upstairs windows. The said upstairs application of said s.w.s does not appeal to us in a very inviting manner. We prefer to keep our big and well built feet on the solid ground as much as is humanly possible. — A —_ We saw a copy of the magazine, "Ford Times," for the first time just recently (where have we been all our life). It's by far the best magazine of its kind we have run across. Makes it almost worth the while to buy a Ford car just to be put on the mailing list. — • — NOT THAT WE ARE ADVERTISING FRIEND PRITCHARDS JUSTLY FAMOUS LINE OF AUTOMOBILES NONE. — • — We never owned a Ford Auto. Although we often see one, But this we very well do know, •We'd rather see than be one. (With apologies to the purple cow) AB ——- ^ -^—An opportunity for the swift of foot. WANTED—A man to drive and help catch turtles. —Wantad ___•__ ^f As to how much of a job it might be to drive a flock of turtles from where they are to where they are elsewhere wanted to be we know not. Nor how much skill and endurance would be required to catch a swift moving one. ^ • ^f ^^^^ Which the driving of a herd of wild, turbulent turtles must be accompanied by considerable uproar and maneuvering. Unless the driver comes equipped with a good turtle dog or two, and is mounted upon a swift bronco hoss, it would seem to be well nigh impossible to drive a flock of them across the country without a noti- able loss in numbers. ^ . — ^p«» The catching of the turtles should not be too much of a proposition. Any good, well bodied, hound dog should be able to run down and capture the jnost agile turtle with but little trouble or exhaustion. Especially if the turtle should be over led or be enjoying sore feet. The turtle toddles slowly hut, It doesn't seem to care, For though it moves about it ne'er, Is going any where. — • — Some time when we get around to it we are going to enter a high toned hotel and ask them in a clear, well moduiated'tone of voice just what the heck do some of the mystic signs and emblems mean on a food menu. For so long as we have lived we have encountered such items on menus as chicken Creole, croutons, ribs of beef au jus, (what the el kind of meat is au jus) fillet mignon, bearnaise, etc., etc. Perhaps these food articles are just as palatable under an assumed or foreign name, but why can't a menu be printed in the United States language and permit a poor, uneducated patron to know what and how to order a bite to cat.
