Highland Township Farmer Winner In Soybean Contest Earl Slraughn, a farmer or Highland township, won the soybean yield contest in Vermillion County with an official yield ir 42." bushels per acre. Mr. Slraughn used the new Lincoln Sohean variety. The field was planted about the first oi June at the rate of 3d pounds of seed per acre and sci-dcd in 40 Inch rows with a corn planter according' to M. .1. Peterson. Vermillion County agricultural agent. One hundred pounds of an S-S-S analysis fertilzer was used per acre on the field which was cultivated twice with a rotary hoe and once with a regular cultivator. The beans were lnnoculated. Mr. Peterson in recommending the Lincoln soybean said that it was a new and superior yielding variety i with about the same maturity and growth habits of the Dunfield bean but has been yielding on the average se'en bushels more beans per acre than the latter according to the records of Indiana, Illinois, Ohio and Iowa Experiment Stations. The re sults of variety demonstrations In Vermillion County have shown a-bout the same correlation in regard to yield. William A. Walthall of Vermillion township place second in the con-est with a yield of 33.7 bushels per acre. Mr. Walthall used the Richland soybean, seeding them solid at the rate of two bushels per acre. No fertilizer "was used. This Boybean yield project Is a new crop project for Vermillion County, the county agent explained, as he expressed his hope that several more farmers will be enrolled in the project for next year.

Eack in 11)03, Eirar Hulboell, then a young mail clerk in the post office at Challoltenlund, Denmark, conceived the idea of a voluntary tax on CliriFtmas greeting cards which would benefit the poor. He- gained permission from tiie miniFtry to sell the stamps at post ofhecs for a fund to erect a hospital for tubercular children. In 1907 Miss Emily P. Bissell of Wilmington, Del., adopted the idea and interested the American Red Cross in the project. The first national sale in 1908 brought in $135,000 and the amount has grown larger each year. The sale of seals has saved 100,000 lives annually among tubercular patients, officials declare. At the time of his death in 1927, Holboell was president of the International Tuberculosis association and a member of the board of directors of the National Tuberculosis Association of Denmark. As a mark of honor to the originator, the Danish Christmas seal for 1927 bore his picture. Christmas Poem . The time draws near the birth of Christ: The moon Is hid; the night is still; The Christmas bells from hill to hill Answer each other in the mist. Four voices of four hamlets round, From far and near, on mead and moor, Swell out and fail, as if a door Were shut between me and the sound. Each voice four changes on the wind. That now dilate, and now decrease, Peace and good-will, good-wfill and peace, Peace and good-will, to all mankind. Tennyson. F;imou-!

Peacock Christmas Dish It's been a long time since the peacock was considered the best dish for Christmas. This bird used to be served to gatherings of knights and lords in "merrie olde England." It was first skinned, with all its featiiers intact, roasted, then placed back in its skin. Gift Giving Gift-giving was well established among Northern European tribes before they became converted to Christianity. It was so much of an obligation among pagan Germans to distribute gifts that men actually Irlt the country during the holiday season to escape gift-giving.
