THE PAintSOtJNT NCT3 FOWLERTON DEPARTMENT Mrs. Minnie Crecraft, Reporter chance now to go out in these little groups. The regular discipline that children get in a gofcd campis a wonderful thing for them. It is also a great economy of human effort. Parents otherwise spend a large part of their time straightening out their roaming youngsters, who are butting into all kinds of trouble in their effort to have a good time. But a few camp leaders will take this same bunch of children, train them in orderly ways, and get them in the habit of obedience. Children enjoy so hugely their experiences in the swimming pool and around the camp fire, that they will be amenable to discipline rather than be sent home. So the problem of conduct is solved, mischief is avoided, health giving pursuits are enjoyed, high ideals are stimulated.

The people who have been finding fault with the farmer because he does not keep accurate books, will probably kick very hard when his accounts show that he needs higher prices. After throwing away clothes because they are a little out of style, the city folks complain that the farmers exactions makes it impossible for them to pay their debts.

It is such a convenience to have good stores inyour home city, that people consider it in choosing their place of residence. Many towns that lack desirable attractions have yet been able to grow because they had such good stores. People would say that there were features about these communities that they did not like. But the good enterprising stores helped them to save on the cost of living, and it was a satisfaction to get dependable and attractive merchandise and secure the shown us by the Community. LYDIA P.

Individual f growers feared they would not be treated as their neighbors. They could not be persuaded to pool their issues. Consequently they' let the movement drop. Most of the farmers of Grant county have got beyond these unprogres-sive ideas. They have learned that to put farming on a basis like other! busineess, they must unite for com - mon action and trust that other people are as honest as they are.
