An aggressive skunk at the Wayne Sienknacht home near Gladbrook gave Carl Wulf and his dog a stinking good time last week. The skunk was first seen strutting along the sidewalk and the dog gave chase, but was soon on the run himself with the skunk close behind. Wulf threw a board at the striped little "stinker," which immediately chased him into the barn. When he emerged with a pitchfork, the skunk was chasing the dog again but it turned and made for Wulf again, wholly undaunted by the injection of the pitchfork into the battle. This attack proved to be a tactical error on the part of the skunk, as Mr. Wulf stood his ground and won the engagement. At least, as much as it is possible to win a battle with a skunk.

BUSY BEES ARE WORTH MILLIONS TO IOWA The production of honey has Interested Iowans since pioneer days. In 1839 Iowa almost ciime to blows with her neighbor to the south in the so-called "Honey War", which was precipitated . when • some Missourlans crossed over into Iowa und chopped down some coveted bee trees. Since then beekeeping has grown into n million dollar industry. The story of the honey industry In Iowa is told by Flora Clark Gardner In the November issue of "The Palimpsest." For many ^cars Iowa has had ns many bees ns any other state of equal area nnd produces more honey than many States of larger area. Today more than 20,000 Iowans are directly connected with the care of its bees nnd morclat beekeepers. The Iowa Acad*, my of Science mnde Its contribuilon t,! betted beekeeping ot an early date Although the present Iowa Beckeopeti' Association was formed in 1911 a „ earlier one had been established | n 1875. At least two bee journals ha Ve been published in Iowa. Bee Pep made its first appearance nbout 1915. and Q, e Beekeepers' Buzi appeared in 1941, But bees are important for other things than honey. Experts say real value of bees as pollinators c{ Iowa's field crops, fruit trees, and gar. den plants is "from 8 to 10 times th st , of their value as honey makers"! 0i* authority believes that the bee in. dustry can expand ten times as much in honey production and be at least eighty times as valuable In the po|. linatlon ot food crops, the marketing of Us- honey and war. Some three hundred of these arc com- j Before starting construction of new building on the farm it might be well to make a layout of the farmstead and study it for possible improvement. Shifting of fences, roads and small buildings may give a more efficient arrangement. Deep litter—8 to 10 inches deep- spread evenly in the laying house, if stirred occasionally and the house is well ventilated and insulated, need not be cleaned out for 4 to 6 months. Clinton oats may eventually replace all other varieties in Iowa.
