At our com la only an Inch hign, the birds have to kneel down to eat it. Our wheat Is so short your father's going to have to lather it before he can mow it. Also, your father sold our horse and he wants to buy a cow. 1 want him to buy a iractor. I told him he'd look awful silly trying to ride a cow, and he said he'd look a lot sillier tryin' to milk a tractor. On second thought, knowing your father, 1 don't think he would. • •_-. Anyway, we already have a cow. She's very friendly, She'll let anyone milk her—even people with cold hands. Leonard Box hid all the horn* removed from hia cow*. He • said a-was - cheaper- to -do then than join the rnusfcl ins* unton. " Gomar Cool finally gpi engaged. He met this girl in a revolving door, and they started going around together..

She reminds you of the Loch Ness monster—if it were taller. Gomar tried to get her a 24-carat diamond but nobody would c*np him a diamond for 24 carrots.

The other day what Gomar wit taking a load of hay to town, hi» wagon hit a rut and the whole load overturned on the road, A fanner came out and invited Gomar to dinner. Gomar said, "I better not. Father wouldn't like it." The farmer in- elated, so in he went and ate a wonderful dinner, After dinner they played the Gramophone, looked at the family album, played several games of Parches!. ' Then Gomar thanked the farmer and said, "I guess father wouldn't like my being here." The farmer said, "Where is your fatiisr." and Gomar says, "He's under the hay!"
