The County Farm Tlie county penr.1 farm, like any other public institution, should 1)0 managed as efficiently and economically as possible. Us financial records should be accurate and complete and subject to periodic audit. There is no gooi excuse for careless and slipshod methods in its administration any more than such methods would bo excusable in the oll'icc of the treasurer or tax collector. The Osccola jcnim! jury's recoup mendations that an adequate accounting system be installed (it Hie farm and that a competent resident man' ager bo made responsible for the proper conduct of its affairs scum to us altogether sound. We trust they will be adopted. We are in complete disagreement, however, with the jjrand jury's rcc- Mujnendalion that it the farm cannot be made to show a prolit "it should be disposed of or. it, with the prisoners, leased (o sonic responsible farmer." It seems to us that Uio faim ought to sbo\v a . prolil or at least to pay its own way. 1C it is not 'doing thai, now every ctt'ort should be made to make il do it. But if for reasons beyond our understanding that is impossible, !hcr. the farm should be 'maintained anyway for the ' good and sufficient reason that there in no satisfactory substitute for it.

The officer's training points him in Ihe other direction; il is only natural that his remedy for subversive talk is usually hard-boiled suppression. But Admiral William 11. Slandley, chief of naval operations, is different. He recently urged that the Washington, ellipse, the parkway between the White House and the Washington monument, be turned into a sort of American Hyda Park, a soap box arena where agitators of any and all descriptions could air their views publicly without the slightest restraint. "if their doctrines were proclaimed publicly to the housetops, they would lose all their persuasiveness and stand forth clad in all their absurdity," remarks the admiral. "Such a relief valve could never endanger the republic and would give us no worry,'' Sound democratic doctrine, this—cx- .coptionally refreshing, coming from an admiral in the navy! Unusual Candidate 'A (all, svello blond, Melinda Alexander, is running for congress in New York; and what makes her candidacy interesting is the fact that she, has the temerity [o adopt tactics opposite to those tried mid true methods used by mule politicians. • ' "1 have not mt'iilioned the name of my" opponent," she maintains. "If 1 hiiye to become a character 'assassin to win this election, I'd jolly well prefer to slay at homo. "Don't vote for me because 1 like your children. 1C you have not made up' your mind that 1 can represent you best in congress, don't vote for me." Besides thin astounding unorthodox}', Miss Alexander devotes two' hours of each campaigning day to prayer, and hasn't n boxer, wrestler, or sprinter iiii her political repertoire. They. Were Warned Spanish revolutionists lire closing in . on Madrid. Unless something unforeseen happens, they may soon raid the , capital. In the United Stales embassy in Madrid arc housed 100 American refugees, many of whom may die if there is a bombardment. It is very possible, then, that American headlines soon will blare tho fact that Americans were numbered among tho fatalities in Madrid. Our breasts will swell with indignation, representations will be made by our .state department to rebel leaders, and our neutrality in the Spanish crisis may be threatened, in such event. It may be well, then, for : United States.: citizens to remember that the Americans in Madrid ihavQ-.ljccn iwarn-" 1 eel repeatedly (o "evnainte the threatened city, and that such warnings apparently wore 'ignored by this group until the path to safety no longer was open. Helping [he Churches in Maryland 'Those who enjoy nice problems In" morals nml ethics should turn their attention lu the Maryland Free State, where 400 negro pastors have received a contribution of $5 from the Hepubltain slats committee, "for their' clmrciica."

' : -- v When she reached Meed Meadows she inquired Mr. Howard's whereabouts from a farmhand and learned lhat he was gathering. ai4 pies. It amused her to see his surprise when he looked up from '.'the basket he was packing and found her there. Kate said, "I've conic on business, Mr. Howard.

"I'm right fond of cake, and pie, too. The man I've got cooking for me can't make cither. Yes, I'll lake some. Regular—regularly," he corrected himself hastily, college triumphing over cabin. Kate's eyes were discreetly lowered to her order book. "Two cakes a week, say? And a couple of pies, Mr. Howard?" "Surely. ^Ycs, indeed." "* Kate said, "How about collage cheese? Would you like a pint ol that delivered twice a week?" "That would be suitable/' he assured her quaintly. Salesmanship was now'in Kale't, blood. She made another suggestion. "We have very good beaten biscuits. H you'd like several dozen of them each week, it coulc be arranged." * * * JEFF HOWARD had the moim- " taineer's distaste for the "little cracker biscuits" that Blue Grass people set such store by. But then he reflected hastily, he could-feec them to the chickens. He calmlj ordered four' dozen a week.

As she rode>hbme she remembered her lie and thought, "I told Caroline I hadn't much {also pride left,: •'•Well,T.'must be coaled with it!;.;.Why should I mind cooking for him? v. ; BiiO do, because I hate him!' I'll, not let him picture me toiling over the food he eats!" Then'she dismissed Jeff Howard as-a, person and Considered him only as n surprisingly good customer. • Yes, she and Caroline would be able to keep (lie family above water at this rate. She'd show Morgan Prentiss a thing or two! Why, she thought- hopefully, shouldn'l Meed cottage cheese become as famous as Meed hams used to be? And there/was an idea!

"We didn't think of Hyacinth a being old," Kale protested. Sh and Caroline had tears in thei eyes. Partly for Hyacinth hersel whose'ways had been so gentle But mostly the tears were for th cottage cheese business, which wa to have built a smokehouse an set them up in the baked hai business. They went to the house an broke the news to their granc father, who was confined to h room with a sprained back.

'Go away and let me alone!" "I will not," Kafe told her. "Not ill I find out where the funeral is." "There's ho funeral," Caroline -eplied, lifiiny her head. "It's a vedding. Mine." 'What do you mean?" Kate asked blankly. "I'm going to marry Mr. Grayon," Caroline said steadily. Kate sat down and stared at her sister. "You don't mean thai, Cai-oliiie?" She was suddenly frightened. There was so bleak in Caroline's announcement So definite. "Is it the sort of thing I'd be apt to joke about?" Caroline asked. She got up and smoothed her hair at the mirror. "Do I look facetious?" ''No," Kale answered, swallowing. "But you wouldn't marry that man, Caroline'. You couldn't!" "He's a fine person," Caroline said, wheeling about ami facing her. "He's a gentleman. He's froi^ good stock. He's fond of me." ; j{ "Why?" Kale demanded.

A poison similar to that o[ the mushroom seems to develop occasionally in mussgls found in most deuce ol tho fact that the body is trying to eel rid of the poison.
