DON'T USE CANDLES Warning Against the use of candles to melt ice or sleet from motor vehicle windshield^; is contained in a timely bulletin issued by the Keystone Automobile Club. According to Matthew P. Hanley, Manager of the Eastern Shore Division of the Club, many accidents have occurred as a result of this practice. Windshields have burst, due to unequal expansion, and in some instances flying glass has injured the eyes of motorists. "Instead of candles," he said, "we recommend the use of salt for clearing windshields of cars not equipped with' high grado electric or other heaters. A small bag containing an ounce or two of salt may be attached to the blade of the windshield wiper. As the wiper moves in itii arc the salt water will keep the space clenr. "Another method found useful is to place sticks or blocks of rubber under tho hood where it fits to tho cowl, allowing a small npcrture for the escape of engine heat, which will be blown by the fan directly against the windshield. Applications of glycerine to the windshield al : o arc found effective, although not lasting." In cases of burst or "exploded" windshields studied by tho Club, it developed that the glass was of the type which is built in layers, %vith a cellulose center layer designed to prevent shattering in cnso of col- JUion. This cellulose material is u non-conductcr of boat, and in consequence tho hcnt of candles cannot penetrate readily to the outside layer. Instead, It rapidly expands the inside Roycr, cast of town, on Thursday of last week, aged eighty-seven. Her funeral was held in tho Reformed Church, of which she was a member, on Sunday afternoon.

Since the President, Bryant Cawley, was absent, Richard Garcy, vice-president, carried on through the meeting. Keeping of Farm Accounts was discussed by the boys and Mr, George Clendaniel, County Agent. Several of the boye seemed interested in keeping these records. The question, as a general discussion problem, of raising sheep vs. dogs on farm; of Caroline county was presented by Frank Zeiglcr, who told how destructive dogs can be by killing three or four sheep in a night. If there could be a provision such a- one out west about dogs that are seen off of the premises of their owner they can be immediately shot. Members of the legislature have been approached several times about providing for i=uch a law in Maryland. But have been unable to do anything about it because the love of dogs, by people, is stronger thnn their love for sheep. So this question of importance is at a stand still. It decided that the next meeting would be held the first of January probably in the Soil Conservation Office of Mr. Clendaniel for the purpose of election of officers for the coming y.'nr. The meeting was adjourned with cocoa. which tliry enjoyed thoroughly.
