Nature can be depended on to strike a balance. Comes the first warm days of spring and most persons are simply burning up to go forth and wear themselves all out getting started in their spring work. But before tie ambition can be realized they contract a case of spring fever and arc incapacitated from farther effort. Speaking of spring, we are anxiously awaiting its advent. Come the time when the maple leaves, or is it the oak, attain the size of a squirrel's ears and we have over 40 packages of flower seeds to inter. To say nothing of the packages of seed our friend, Jim Hardy, is starting for us in his justly famous hot house. Heretofore ive have planted the early starters in boxes which we herded in the sun parlor in an earnest effort to obtain proper germination of the seeds. But this year Jim has come to our rescue. He raises cabbage and tomato plants, as well as inany flower plants to supply his customers and has planted the seeds we gave him along with them. We hope Jim keeps the flower seeds separate from the vegetable seeds. We would hate to set out a few dozen tomato or cabbage plants expecting to raise a flock of choice petunia or snap dragon flowers, only to discover our mis- :ake when it was everlastingly too How very sad 'twould surely be. To set out plants on which to grow, A flock of flowers and reap instead, A cabbage or a tomato. . A _. _ Warning to motorists! Use unusual precautions to avoid accident when you are adjacent or in close proximity to a truck bearing an official county license plate. The county is not permitted to carry insurance on county owned trucks and if your automobile is damaged by a county truck it is just too bad--for you. Not that the county officers are to blame. It's a state law. The county officers tarried insurance on all trucks up to a year or two ago. Then the esteemed state auditors required the insurance be canceled out and carried no more. In regard to which we might say that the Buix has been repaired, and looks the same, but our pockelbook doesn't. Our own insurance policy carried too much deductible to do us any good in time of stress. Which we have been carrying automobile insurance for some 12 or lo years only to find when we have our first accident the darn policy did not cover the loss. Did you use your car a heap during used car week? While in Eagle Grove last Tuesday we dropped in to see Ward Barnes, America's, with one possible exception, greatest humorist.

TIPSY DRIVER IS CAUTIONED Drunk Driver Should Consider Consequence of Such Violation DBS MOINES, (ff)_A word o caution to tipsy motorists came Thursday from Secretary of State Earl G. Miller. Beseiged with from 15 to 20 requests a week from motorists whose driver's licenses have been revoked for drunken driving am who want them reinstated, the secretary said: "It would be a lot better foi these fellows to consider the consequences before they commit the crime. "Won't Drive for Year" "They may get off with a light sentence or fine for driving while intoxicated, but if their driver's license is revoked they can be assured they won't drive an automobile in this state legally for 365 days. "The laws relating to suspension and revocation of licenses are as inevitable and inflexible as the proverbial .'death and faxes.' " Can't Restore License The secretary pointed out that ins office has absolutely no power to restore revoked driver's licenses, and that even a judge can't reinstate a license until the full year has run its course. "I've even had close friends come to me and go away mad" Secretary Miller said. "They don't seem to realize that there's nothing anybody here can do once a license has been revoked." He said the same laws apply to licenses that have been suspended for a certain period, usually 90 days. Only by obtaining a district court injunction restraining the motor vehicle department from taking up the license can the ae-, tion be halted, he said.

An amazing remark,* What are these creatures, everywhere present, yet so seldom seen ·md so little known? Worms-- of 11 sizes, from several feet in ength down to a small fraction I an inch.

Every- here-- and I mean just that! The oil of Iowa swarms with them ten-acre field being estimated to arbor more than thirty thousand millions; enough, i£ placed end to nd, to girdle the world! They ave been thawed from the ice at he South Pole, taken from the vaters of hot springs, from the ap of trees, from the sands of hot eserts, from the bottom of the cean and from the bodies of every animal man has examined. Man himself is plagued by fifty ft h ' v ar TM« than that number if WR count those destroying his' crops and domestic animals. It is estimated hat nearly a fifth of the people of the world are infected by hookworm, a nematode common in southern United States. This tiny worm, less than half an inch lon« is hatched from eggs lying in. the damp soil. While yet immature it bores through the bottoms of the feet of its victims, gets into the blood and finally lands in the intestines where it hangs on and sucks blood. There it lays more eggs and these, passing to the outside, soon hatch and are ready to infect others, Another nematode, called Trichina, lives in hogs, the youn*r worm finally getting from the hog's intestines into its muscles If partially cooked meat frorr such a hog is eaten by man, th worms enter the muscles of his body, often with fatal results. Do you know of the diseasi called Elephantiasis? Thousands o people in the tropical countrie have this asvful sickness which may cause the body to assume unbelievable proportions. It is caused by a nematode. That dreadful ailment mentioned by Moses in Numbers and called the Fiery Serpent is caused by a nematode. u your dog has worms, he is suffering from nematodes. When a child has worms, nematodes are bothering him. Every farniei strives to- keep his hogs free of nematodes; there are a dozen kinds of them that infest sheep; and I have never found a house cat free of them. at all.'
