The aim of both the bread and the biscuit contests is to improve the quality of the bread used in farm homes and to establish better standards for both yeast and light breads. Many who did not take part in the final contests were interested in the demonstrations given by extension workers directed by the United States Department of Agriculture and the Texas Agricultural and Mechanical College and either participated in community or county contests or carried ideas on improved baking into their own homes.

JV, it '? : Few Animals Live In Depths of Mines Pit ponies are not the only creatures that live in coal mines, seldom seeing the light of day. Miners are often troubled with rats, mice, flies, and even frogs and toads. The presence of mice spells danger. They have been known to gnaw cables, calsing electric wires to fuse and vapor to be exploded in gassy pits. Their food consists of scraps from the miners' meals, and they have a strange liking for oil, which they lick f rom the lubricated parts of machinery in the mine. Whatever their diet, however, the mice never grow very big, because the entire absence of light has a dwarfing effect. Flies seem to thrive underground, and are a great nuisance to the miners, especially at mealtimes. Other minute forms of insect life which inhabit the mines explain why frogs and toads are frequently found there, looking fit and well-fed. World Wage and Cost Of Living Investigation Fifty-two delegates from thirty-three countries attended a conference of official labor statisticians recently held in Geneva under the auspices of the International Labor Office of the League of Nations. Among them were heads of statistical divisions of national labor departments, chiefs of statistical offices, chief factory inspectors and other experts. The conference discussed the question of statistics of labor and wages and of industrial accidents and the classification of industries and occupations for the purpose of labor statistics. The International Labor O ffi c e was requested to proceed with an investigation of statistics of wage rates of typical categories of workers in important industries throughout the world and of the prices of items of ordinary consumption in working class families. These data will furnish the basis for interna Chicago. With what it terms a "perfect hanging case" against Richard Loeb and Nathan Leopold, Jr., confessed slayers of little Robert Franks, virtually ready to submit to a Jury, the state went ahead to assemble absolute evidence that the youthful murderers are sane. The first step came with the revelation by State's Attorney Crowe that he was zealously guarding notes taken by the two boys In their own handwriting directly after the confessions were made. These notes are expected to be far more Important In the case than even the confessions. The authorities read Leopold's confession aloud to Loeb, and then Loeb's confession aloud to Leopold. This occurred immediately after the boys confessed. Takes Notes as Proof. These notes prove the boys sane beyond any vestige of rt doubt, the officials say. By these notes they are proved cognizant of their crime, Its motives. Implications, results and possible entanglements, State's Attorney Crowe holds. The notes, Mr. Crowe let It be known, are the final clinching steps In the "hanging evidence." But even this Isn't enough for the state's attorneys who are out to make "the trial of a century" a complete job from the prosecutor's angle. As a second "anti-Insanity" step, they prepared to collect testimony from scores jpf persons who saw Leopold and Loeb directly after the murder. Another Grand Jury Hearing This evidence is likely to be preserved by bringing it before another grand jury hearing Immediately. State's Attorney Crowe has left an opening for this procedure. Inasmuch as he can still ask for Indictment of the young killers on a conspiracy to commit murder charge. ALEXIUS BAAS Trustee's Notice.

An eloquent politician was constantly interrupted by a man in the crowd, who kept on shouting out, "Liar!" After about the twentieth repetition, the speaker paused and fixed his eyes on his Jtormentor. "If the gentleman who persists in interrupting," he said, "will be good enough to tell us his name instead of merely shouting out his profession, I am sure we shall all be pleased to make his acquaintance." P THE PROPHET. It was the young candidate's first campaign and his very first political speech. He was much encouraged by the hearty welcome extended by the local committee and delighted by the elaborate preparations for the meeting. There was even a band to play on the stand before the speech.

The most noticeable trend of modern education is to develop what is in a child, rather than whip them all into one general shape as they used to in the old days, but there are still to be found plenty of the old-fashioned teachers who seem to have the faculty of stifling the kiddies with the two greatest bugaboos of youth impatience and intolerance. At school one day shortly before the close of the year, one of the children unwittingly got revenge. Eager to share a new discovery with others, the little fellow cried: "I is" The teacher swooped down at once. "Never say 'I is,' " she admonished, "It is never, never, never correct. Always say 'I am.' " Tomany looked pairted, but he was always an obedient little chap. "I am the ninth letter of the alphabet," he continued timidly, and even his little mates were not too young to appreciate the discomfiture of the teacher.
