FROM COR WITH WRITER Fairview-Corwith: Spring has surely made its appearance as the sun shone brightly Thursday and the farmers got out tractors and discs and commenced work in the fields. After several months of winter weather, snow, sleet, ice and mud what is more welcome than the warm sun in the spring and the hum of tractors in the fields, the seeders busily sowing oats, and the hustle and bustle of the farmers nnd horses making ready to sow the seed, which if nature is willing, will be reaped within a few months. Every where one can see folks busy raking yards, the burning of fires and the smell of the srnoke tells us the havoc winter has wrought will soon be a thing of the past. Gardens will soon be planted, chicks will .soon be heard yeep- ing, house wives busy with house cleaning. What can be finer than the spring when every thing becomes jjreen nnd soon the fields will again be planted with straight, long rows of corn.
