The new pupils that enrolled in our. school the urst of the year are: Twila and Charlene hughes, Darwin, Bernadine, Bernard and Gene Duncan. Our fifth grade are completing their Iowa scrap book and are ready to take up the Northeastern states in geography. Ivan Bennett, our first grader, has finished his Gates-Huber reader and has started Elson Gray first reader. For language Monday, the primary grades wrote letters to Santa Glaus. At this time of the year the boys are busy with their saws and hammers and the girls are sewing. We have started working on our Christmas program, wMch is causing much enjoyment. Moldy Corn Is Poison Danger If Many Moldy Ears Arc Left in Field, Pasturing of Stalks Should Be Cautious Look out for poisoning if you feed badly molded corn to sheep and horses. There is some danger with cattle, too, but it is not so great as with horses and sheep. This is the caution given by {Dr. Charles Murray, head of veterinary investigations at lowa State College. The appreciable pick-up in the number of cases of poisoning reported or coming to the laboratory at lowa State College during the past week and the fact that there is much moldy corn in lowa this year form the basis tor Dr. Murray's apprehension. If corn is badly molded, it is much safer to feed the horses oats, for these animals are especially apt to get poisoned. If a lot of the moldy corn is left in the field at picking time, these stalk pastures become of questionable value. Thin Animals Most Susceptible If the nenith of stock turned in to graze on stalk fields is watched carefully, farmers can expect the stalks to provide some feed. Too many, however, make the mistake of not feeding anything else during the period the animals graze on the stalks. Horses, breeding cattle and sheep that are in good condition when turned Into the corn fields will get along well on stalks alon^ for a few weeks, but when snow covers the beaten down stalks and cold winds sweep across the fields, that good condition can be maintained only by supplementary feeding of legume hay, silage or some other roughage, authorities at Iowa State College say. if the animals are in poor condition at the time they are turned into the corn fields, supplementary feed must be given from the first. The chance of cornstaiK poisoning showing up is increased greatly if the animals are In thin condition. Unless there is an unusual amount of ear corn left in the field, hogs will get little or no feed from it. Fattening pigs should be kept in the drylot, and pregnant sows benefit only from the exercise they will get if allowed to run in husked fields. Milk cows in production must be fed a grain ration high In protein each day before being turned into the corn field. Otherwise they will stuff themselves with i»ie fibrous stalks and refuse the grain ration needed for high production. Cornstalks are low in protein, and this deficiency must be made up by additional feeding of a ration rich in protein. In experiments conducted at Iowa State College cows eating only corn stover produced only an average of 6 pounds of milk per day less than cows fed a protein rich grain ration in addition to the stover. BOYS 4-H CLUB COMMITTEE APPOINTED The Farm Bureau Board of directors has recently announced the appointment of a boys 4-H. Club committee in Taylor county to serve from now on through 1936. Members of this committee are Arthur Bishop, chairman, Bedford; R. p. Andrew, New Market; Herman Wurster, Clearfield; Frank Smew* Bedford; Alva Hiaks, Q/aytiy, and Claude Hamilton, Taylor Co. Boys Form Beef Club New Bulletin For Club Boys Is Available A number of Taylor county farm boys have recently enrolled in the baby beef club and some have secured their calves. Boys recently enrolled are Arthur L. Bishop, Jr., Dwight Levitt, Dean Lovitt and Harlan Hopple, Bedford; Melvin Nelson, Gravity; Adrian Andrew, New Market; Gene Hamilton, Blockton. Dwight and Dean Lovitt, Adrian Andrew and Gene Hamilton have secured their calves and have them on feed. Other Doys are endeavoring to secure calves at this time. The closing date for making entry in the Daby beef club is December 31. aoys who desire to enter the Daby beet club are urged to see the County Agent or a member of the boys club committee at once. The lowa, Beef Producers As- fliiation Has Just sent the county agent a supply of their ne3e bulletins, "Feeding and Care of Baby Beef" and "Pure Bred Heifer Club Calves". Boys interested in club work and cat- tie raising may secure one of these bulletins for the asking, illustrations and covers the selection, care and feeding of beef calves, rations and treatment of common ailments. putlefl of Ifce boys 4-H Club ^iiiimmiiiiimimiiiiiiiiiimiiimiiii: | Our | f EXCHANGES ( | Say: | nimiimiimimiiiiiiiumiimiimmir: Taxes Have Increased Shannon City Messenger — The other day J. J. Petrie showed us a tax receipt issued to his father, the late William Petrie, on March 24th, 1862, for payment in full for all taxes for the year i860, poll, personal and real, on 80 acres described as the W»/ 2 of SW Section 4, Township 71, Range 31, located near Kent, and which was at that time the family's homestead, Mr. Petrie being the first private individual owning that piece of real estate. rue receipt was issued at Afton, which was at that time the county seat, and Is signed by Thos. M. Robinson, County Treasurer. The enumerations are as follows: State 36c; County 72c; School 36c; Road 60c; Costs 20c; Interest 23c. Total $2.47. That same piece of real estate is to'day the property of one Charne Madden, and an investigation shows that the taxes assessed to it for 1935 are $67.97, an increase of $65.50, or about 2,bol percent in the 75 years uiiat have elapsed since the original taxation, an interesting notation, indeed. it will be noted that even at that time the road tax was nearly Double the amount of some of the other assessments excepting the county tax which totaled V2 cents. It would indeed be interesting to be privileged to compare these two assessments at this time, which we are unable to do just now. It is believed that the abstract of deed to the property given by the senior Petrie wHen he disposed of it was the shortest woraed document ever recorded in Union county. Injured Boy Ran Wild Osceola Tribune — Clarence Rawuns,. 20, living near Osceola, may have a crippled hand the rest of his life as the result of an unusual accident on the streets of Osceola last Saturday night. Ail the tendons and arteries in his wrist were severed when he ran into a car and broke the glass with his fist. Rawuns, in company with some other youths, was going east at the southeast corner of tae square. There was a friendly tussle and he started running across the street. Carl Booth of near Hopeviiie, was driving north and saw the youth running and slowed his car almost to a standstill. The lad ran squarely into the machine. He apparently became panicky wnen he saw the injury and ran east a half block and then darted into a driveway to the north. His companions followed him but soon lost sight of his fleeing form. He was easily trailed by the stream of blood on the ground, however. He reentered Main street by the alley on the east side and then ran north. Somewhere on North Main street he was caught and taken to the hospital. Aside from losing much blood, he is little the worse for the experience but if the tendons do not heai he may have a badly crippled hand. Get Your Order In Early Hopkins (Mc«.) Journal—Oli- tver Young is the busiest man in Hopkins, being like the old woman who lived in the shoe, except instead of children, he has so much work he doesn't know what to do. Only last week he was out repairing a pump that he was called to fix a year ago. Candy In Jail Bhenandpah Gazette—Candy Valentine, barber, was found guilty of intoxication, and was fined $25 and costs, which he was unable to pay, and so was sentenced to thirty days in the county jail at Ciarinda. An interesting incident in connection with the Valentine, case, was the tact that his liquor permit book, October 8, im, s chases of three bottles of liquor on the day of arrest. The book showed that Valentine had evidently spent over $40 for booze since the date he acquired the oook. valentine spent 30 days in jail on the same charge just previous to his purchase of permit. He will no doubt have his liquor license revoked ber cause of this last offense, but in reality, he was not eligible to purchase a permit in the beginning. IDept. of Commerce Weekly Bus. Survey Government Bureau Gives The Figures For the Entire Country "Business trends as reflected by reports to the Department of I commerce from "more than 30 i important cities indicate that I the depression is over", Secretary Roper said at his weekly press conference in connection with the statement that holiday business "will far exceed that ol last year and may be the best year since 1930." He attributed the improved conditions in retail trade to increased farm income, employment gains, higher payrolls, expanded credit sales and freer consumer spending. Referring to the estimate recently made by the National Retail Dry Goods Association that the Christmas volume of trade will reach $4,500,000,000 and result in the employment of 500,000 extra sales people during the holidays, he proceeded to report on trends in several individual cities. Gains are running from 5 percent to 30 percent ahead of last year, depending of course upon the city and the community. Leading New York department stores expect a gain of at least 5 percent over last year. In Minneapolis noliday trade is running ahead of expectations. Atlanta reported the need of 1,000 additional postal clerks to handle the rush, the figure being largx than 1929. Official opening of the holiday season in Chicag'o was moved up a week earlier and the opening day was reported the best last year» Dallas and Houston reported trade 10 percent to 30 , percent better than last year. Memphis ushered in the season with a street parade witnessed by 100,000 and 10 percent to 25 percent better business is expected. Early buying was also reported in Kansas City, St. Louis and other areas. In some sections, unseasonable weather continued to have a depressing effect, but in most instances volume was substantially ahead of last year. Last week, department store sales In Pittsburgh were 22.5 percent ahead of the 1934 week; 18 percent in Detroit; 10 percent in LOS Angeles and moderate gains elsewhere. Reports also indicated that private business and industry were vicing with WPA for labor. Job placements were especially heavy in industrial centers where there has been a considerable upswing of activity among the durable goods groups. An illustration of the widespread absorption of em- ployables was noted in Cleveland where factory payrolls for the year are estimated at $148,- 840.0UU, an increase of $17,600,OUO over 1934. In Detroit, 3,900 families were dropped from relief roils in the week and the relief total was only 43 percent of the same period last year. Other Michigan industrial cities showed peak employment. increased placements in Pittsburgh were attributed to increasing demands on the steel industry. Laborers long idle were being absorbed in the building trades in Georgia. Andover, Mass., reported employments in textile and rubber plants had reached such a high point that few workers are available for WPA projects. Payrolls in Worcester, Mass., in the first ten months of the year were 20 percent greater than lor the same period last year, in Maine, a decided improvement was reported in employment in the textile and paper mills and railroad repair shops. • I • STOCK UP,DURING J OUR GREATEST • CANNED FOOD SAL • Every can of Fruits and Vegetable • •• store is on special sale during th fanned" values.

Growing and fattening pigs, full-fed from weaning time to a desirable weight on a ration of corn and soybeans in the dry- lot, usually will produce soft or oily pork, the circular warns. The degree of softness and oiliness depends upon the length of the feeding period, the amount of soybeans consumed, the weight of the pigs when started on the soybeans and the rate of gain.
