The subject of the second lesson Is "Block Printing" and takes up design, the cutting of linoleum blocks, the printing with the blocks, materials suitable for block printing, and the different articles of home furnishings that may be beautified by this decoration. Training schools for the different centers will be held at the following homes: in the county: one at S. J. Anderson's near Malvern. This plot below what is needed for domestic consumption.

Plot N'o. 2 had same treatment as plot No. 1 and plot No. 3 was treated with 3 >4 Ibs. of regular dry sodium chlorate. This plot on the fair grounds was treated with sodium chlorate spray last July In a very hot, dry time but, according to Frank Summers, secretary of the Fair association, there was approximately a 90 per cent kill of the thistle. Plot N'o. 4, 6 and 6 was on Canada thistle at the Leonard Seeger farm in Rawles township. Plot No. 4 was treated same as plot No. 1 and 2; plot No. 5 with sodium chlorate spray at a rate of 3H Ibs. of chlorate to the square rod. Plot No. 6 same as plot No. 3.

Plot 10 was treated same as plot products, unemployment will decrease and the general welfare of all classes will gradually Improve. The reason why the farmer must reduce his production to secure higher prices is because he formerly marketed pork equivalent to nearly 33 million market weight hogg and to the product from 8 to 10 million acres of corn. But farmers last year (1932) sold less than 5 million hogs abroad as compared with 13 million 10 years ago. Farmers should apply for loans directly to secretary-treasurers of national farm loan associations, authorized correspondents of federal land banks or to the bank itself. A number of unofficial and unauthorized persons hare sought to collect fees from farmers for so-called "service" In helping them to obtain loans. Buch service Is not necessary.
