The lumber dealers report that there will be considerable building in the country around Fairmount, more than common, and the farmers are spending lots of money for building materials.

It will cost between $2,500 and $3,000. One of the songs sung at the oratorical contest Friday evening last was composed by Thomas Jenkins of the Academy and set to music by Miss Leona Wright, the well known pianist of this city. The song is very in farming take the form of ai increase in inventory.

This is a very good year to start, reporting on the "accrual" basis because farm profits have been small and the closing inventory for this year will contain very low values because of the recent decline in the price of livestock and products. In the year the change from the "cash" to the "accrual" method is made, the inventory of livestock, crops and pro- - - . j t , I I methods of obtaining confessions from prisoners at police stations are no longer permitted. This action has been taken in part as the result of trials at which prisoners from whom confessions had been wrung in this way have been acquitted. Their confessions were thrown out of court. This is a practical consideration which cannot be ignored by police om- , Wonderful Exhibit At Flower Show (Continued from Page One) in Indianapolis was at a poultry and dog show held in Tomlinson hall in 1915. It aroused such intense interest that fish displays are now annual occurences, particularly at the Indiana state fairs. The main object of the display, he says, will be to show that Hoosier public waters offer some of the best game fishes in the world, and that as a tourist state Indiana has excellent piscatorial sport along with numerous scenic and historic spots always of intense interest to overland traveler and reereationist. Mr. Mann-feld will be assisted at the exhibit by Georpe Berg, superintendent of the state hatcheries where the conservation department annually propagates millions of baby fish for stocking In ... . Bordenkecker, manager of the Riverside hatchery, one of the largest in this part of the country. In nature's marvelous scheme for maintaining a balance of all its creations, it is decreed tha certain butterflies, moths and insects exist if our rarest flowers are pollinated and mature into beautiful and exquistie bloom; likewise produce seed and reproduce their kind. For this reason the flower show committee conceived a collection of such mounts at the show in order to demonstrate the connection between the most beautiful in sect subjects and the rarest of horticultural blooms. The conservation department exhibit along this line will occupy a assistant state entomologist, and con sist of an unusually large collection of butterflies and moths, many from Central and South America, some from Japan and of practically every Hoosier subject. Notable in the display is the famous Morpho butterfly from Central America. This is a rare irridescent blue creature with a winp expanse of four :ncnes. Specimens of this insect cost DieU will bo at the exhibit not only to discuss the insects displayed but to diffuse information on insects and plant diseases in which backyard gardeners are vitally interested. Inventory Plan For the Farmer (Continued from Page One) the year before. With this method it is necessary continually to turn back to the records of previous years to determine the cost of property sold if the cost is to be claimed as a deduction. For instance, if a horse were sold in 1919, only the difference between the cost and selling price should be reported as profit. If the horse were bought in 1915, it would be necessary to turn to the 1915 record book to determine the cost. Furthermore, when reporting on the cash basis, it is often .necessary to icport the income from crops and products produced in previous year. Corn, potatoes, apples, hay, etc., are often carried over and not sold until after January 1. Thus two years crops may be sold in one year, caus- ing an abnormally large income for that year!. If one took inventories and reported on the "accrual' basis, such income would be credited to the year in which it actually happened. The second method known as "accrual' or "inventory" is in accordance with good accounting practice and more nearly shows the true net farm income for any given year. i his method of reporting overcomes the disadvantages referred to under the "cash" basis. By equalising the income, it results in a fairer basis of taxation and may resu't in a saving in iaxes over a period of years. This is especially true when it It reotera bcred that a good chare of the prot-U to become a the Academy prime favorite with students.

In the larger cities, especially, the man or woman on foot, even with their faculties alive to the situation, are in danger, while the child playing in the street indifferent to everything except the exhuberanee of youth, is often the victim of a careless driver. The speedester should be treated as a murderer, for by the mere act of speeding he endangers human life. Too many drivers are brutally insolent and wholly indifferent to the safety and convenience of pedestrians. There is something weak and wrong about a government with a pedestrian majority that permits such an enormous outrage to continue. TOUR JOB. A five-year old child the other day asked, "Daddy, where does corn come from?" "Well,- replied daddy, "a man in the country plants some seed crn in the springs when the leaves begin to come on the trees, and the seed grows. In the autumn, when the leaves ,f all off the trees, the man gathers the corn and takes it to a grist "mill, where another man grinds it into meal. Then other men take it on a freight train and carry it to the city, , where it is placed in the stores. And when daddy wants any corn meal he' goes to the store and buys it, and that i is how we get corn 'meal. And here the child uttered a great economic truth, for he remarked, arent people good to us, daddy. The father had never thought of It in that way, but that is how every man job works out, though he may bo thinking only of the reward that c ;ms to him. Every man's job is one of serving not so much himself as it is of assisting others. Every worker is performing a service to hundreds of thousands of ether people, and the bet ter be does bis Job the better be ts to the beginning of the taxable year had been purchased and the cost thereof not previously charged to expense, the cost may be entered in place of the inventory of livestock, crops and products on hand at the beginning of the year."
