You It find some valuable Bring them in to \'a Pharmacy. H. C. DOUGAN All farmers in Taylor county who kept records of their farm enterprises during 1935 are ur^ed by county agent Robert M. Davie, to summarize and analyze the figures at once. Mr. Davie also suggests that farmers who wish to begin keeping farm business records start at once because inventories are taken at the first of the year. Not only are farm business records beneficial in the study of each indivdual's problems, but the summary results of a large number of records are useful n general program planning for agriculture. Inadequate records last year resulted in many farmers consuming long hours and spending money in an effort to make income tax returns. In addition, many farmers paid more tax than was necessary because of their inability to find records of all the expenditures. Expendtures are more easily forgotten than receipts because the items are smaller but more numerous. The inventory basis of filing income tax returns is equitable to the farmer over a period of years, says Mr. Davie, because it smoothes out the large fluctuation in cash sales. Often one year's production will be carried into the next year and as a result no income tax is collected that year while the next year the income is thrown into the higher tax brackets when farmers are without adequate records. Two types of farm business record books are at the office of the County Agent. Mr. Templin who has been an instructor in the schools in India for several years. Mr. Templin gave a very interesting account of the life and habits of the people in India, told us a great deal about the type of | education carried on in their I land. I Semester tests were given last i Thursday and Friday. The new ' semester begins Monday, Jani uary 13. There will be only a J few changes from the work given the first semester. Coach Dahlgren took his boys to Conway to practice last Tuesday evening after school The boys had a good work out. We are handicapped since our court is covered with snow. Wednesday evening Supt. Thompson asked coach Dahl-r gren to bring a grade team to Conway to play their grade boys. While our boys had never played before this year they showed up pretty well, holding the Conway team to a few points. The following grade pupils made 100 per cent in spelling last week, Dorothy Selders, Phyllis Grimm, Helen Harmon, Helen Huber, Marilyn Pennebaker, Mary Gundy, Hazel Edwards, Ruby Fickess, Norma Grazier, Howard John, Bernice Blair, Vivian Bull, Mary Hamblin, Ellen Knott, Alice Fickess, Paul Fickess, Walter McMahill, Mildred Pennebaker, Maynard Stogdill. At a meeting of the W. C. T. U. it was decided to have a library open on Tuesday evening from 4:00 to 5:00 instead of Wednesday evening. The basketball team has two games next week, a New Market conference game on Tuesday evening, January 14 and a game with Zion on Friday evening, January 17. effect from AAA decision. New York reported moderated retail Improvement over last year with trends spotty and confusion over AAA decision with many cotton mill agents withdrawing firom market entirely pending examination of possible effects. Buyers were reported cautious with no rush of buying or selling. Boston reported moderate improvement in cotton goods sales stopped with announcement of AAA decision and normal turnover was not expected to improve until the price situation clears. Mills were reported in 'strong position regarding stocks i and unfilled orders, but raw j.cottjfon marke.ts reflected confusion. The wool goods market was reported more active. Minneapolis (reported lull in wholesale centers with evidences of fear of cancellations from rural areas on account of the Supreme Court decision. Los Angeles reported little effect from the decision but lower food prices weire expected. Retail • trade in Atlanta was set back ;by inclement weather. Chicago retail trade suffered from adverse weather conditions but with hotels full of out-of-town buyers, greatly increased sales i were reported by the Winter 1 Market, notably in furniture, ! house furnishings and Spring ' apparel. Retail stocks were generally low throughout the country and wholesalers were expecting to feel the impetus | during the next few weeks. Most cities reported best post-holiday business in several years. WPA projects were being ^speeded up throughout the j country with employment on work relief passing the 3,500,000 mark on December 21. Private Sharpsburff Elmer Zrown of Gravity was here Thursday visiting friends, between trains. Mrs. Lydia Filbert spent the clay Friday at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Chas.

Survey Retail trade bounded substantially from the holiday week lull and stimulated by January events, ran well ahead of the 1935 week in most of the 33 cities reporting to the Department of Commerce. Confusion resulting from the AAA decision retarded activity In some of the wholesale markets with uncertainty as to the price situation a disturbing element and expected to be cleared up soon.. Employment gains were noted In most regions, construction gained momentum, banking resources and deposits moved into record figures and industrial operations resumed the pre-holiday pace under the impetus of increasing orders, particularly In the heavy goods groups. Most of the gains in retail trade over the previous and 1935 weeks were recorded in heavy clothing lines. Especially gratifying gains were reported by Boston, Houston, Los Angeles, Seattle, San Francisca, Memphis, ! Charleston, New York, Louisville 'and New Orleans. Philadelphia 'reported a flying start for the New Year with no appreciable ] industry was moving into high gear. Pittsburgh reported increased orders for structural steel, oil tanks, coal barges, rail road cars and locomotives. Pro' cluction and employment in the I metal trades overcame the holiday decline the report from Cin- I cinnati showed. Memphis an' nounced a $500,000 improvement 1 program by the Frisco Railroad. Seattle reported 65 new industries during he year; Atlanta reported Georgia textile rnillis operating at capacity; Detroit activity exceeded last year; industry was active in Buffalo and Denver. Los Angeles reported i many new industries and considerable expansion. The reopening of a remodeled plant employing 500 was reported by In! dianapolis. Louisville reported 1 14 new distilleries during the ' year with production rising to 53,838,379 gallons of whiskey last jyear compared with 22,000,000 i gallons in 1934. j Pig iron production in Decem• ber was the largest for December since 1929 and of any month since 1930. Railroad carloadings in the week ended January 4 gain 10.5% over 1935 and in the ! same period, electric powei 1 ; gained 11.2%. Sales of General i Motors cars last year gained 38.3% over 1934. MORE BUSINESS ENCOURAGEMENT As Iowa farmers begin their farming operations for 193G, the generally accepted measures of ; industrial conditions present an encourageing picture of the demand for farm products. One of the best measures of general business activity is the Federal Reserve Board's index of industrial production. The index stood at 97 percent of the 1923-25 average In November, 1935. This is a 2 point gain over October and a 22 point gain over November 1934. The gain in production was almost equally distributed between manufacturing industries and mining industries. Factory employment, as measured by the Federal Reserve Board, stood at 85 percent of the 1923-25 normal in November as compared with 84 percent in October and 77 percent a year earlier. Factory employment usually declines between October and November, but the decline was less than usual this year so the index of employment rose. Total factory payrolls were slightly lower in November than in October but did not decline as much between those two months. THIRD YEAR HOME FURN. TRAINING SCHOOLS How to rebind old books, make portfolios or memdran- dum books and select lampshades and lamps will be explained by Miss Irma Garner, extension specialist in home furnishing from Iowa State College will be in Taylor coun- ty conducting training schools for local leaders in the women's home project work January 1415-16 and 17. This lesson is the third one of the third year home furnishing work for farm women sponsored by the Farm Bureau. The use of marbelized paper, batik paper, parchment paper, methods of rebinding and how to make memorandum books and portfolios will be demonstrated. Miss Garner will discuss selection of lampshades and lamps that will give adequate and comfortable lighting and at the .same time present an attractive appearance. The local leaders will conduct schools in their communities for farm women who are interested. The time and place of the local leaders' meetings may be learned by calling the local leader or the Farm Bureau office. The leaders training schools will be held as follows: Jan. 14, Mrs. Hazel Wallace, Gravity; Jan. 15, Mrs. Emmett Osburn, Clayton twp.; Jan. 16, Mrs. Elizabeth Pennebaker, Sharpsburg; Jan. 17, Mrs. E. A. Jefferies, Bedford. MOST HOME ACCIDENTS CAN BE AVOIDED "Accidents don't happen; they are committed." That slogan and information on how to prevent accidents in the home are being emphasized by Miss Fannie Gannon and Miss Ruby Simpson, home management specialists in the Extension service of Iowa State College, in lessons on home safety conducted in connection with home project work for farm women. One-third of all home accidents are caused by falls, due partly, says Miss Gannon, to poorly constructed and illuminated stairways, loose throw rugs scattered on floors at random, and improperly placed furniture. Such causes should be eliminated, particularly in bedrooms, where the largest percentage of fatal falls occur. Out of every 100 fatal burns in the farm home, 57 occur in the kitchen. Special precaution should be taken, in handling kettles of hot liquid. Throwing kerosene into the firebox of the stove on the supposition that the coals are "out" follows the same theory that the gun "wasn't loaded" and has caused a large percentage o f fatalities b y burns, says Miss Gannon. Cuts and scratches, poisons and infections need to be properly cared for, says Miss Gannon. Every farm home-maker should think through the possible accidents in her home and make definite mental plans for procedure in case of emergency, Miss Gannon states. Statistics of the National Safety Council .show that, in spite of the educational work done, home accidents are following the upward trend of highway accidents. In 1934, deaths from home accidents totalled 34,500 and injuries 5 million. The extension safety education project is a part of the Iowa State College program of cooperation with the other 33 Iowa civic, governmental and business or- ganizjutions which recentli|y formed the Iowa State Safety Council.

TESTS SHOW THAT MUCH OLD CORN IS GOOD SEED Searching for every possible source of seed corn, Dr. R. H. Porter, chief of the seed laboratory at Iowa State College, has recently had encouraging results from samples of 1933 and 1934 corn. In general, 1934 corn that was shelled, sacked and properly stored has lost but little of its vitality. Samples of this corn have been averaging around 94 to 96 percent germination. Samples of 1933 corn have also shown rather favorable germination, according to Dr. Porter. Testing a limited number of samples at temperatures ranging from 40 to 75 degrees F., has given returns as high as 97 percent germination. Porter warns, however, that 2-year-old ;orn must be tested under sev- sre conditions in order to de- ermine the true viability of the samples. Good, Poor Seed Everywhere During the past 2 weeks the college seed laboratory has been running at full speed testing samples of 1935 corn sent in by farmers, county agents, insurance companies and seed companies. Recent results are sim- .lar to earlier findings—that tliere is both good and bad seed corn in every county. Composite sampling of cribbed corn has been begun, but results are not too favorable. Tests of fodder orn, in general, have been ligher than field corn, Porter states. Farmers are urged by Dr. Porter to continue sampling every ear of corn they expect to use for seed this spring and to cooperate with the seed laboratory in locating surpluses of good seed that can be used as a source of supply. When Buying a Dress When you buy a ready made dress there are five points for you to consider, says Miss Hazel McKibben, instructor in home economics at Iowa State College. 1. Choose a style and fabric suited to your needs. 2. Look for a label which will tell what kind of fibers make up the material. 3. Be sure you know about shrinkage, weighting, sizing and whether or not the color is fast to .sunlight and washing. 4. Be sure the fabric is made of durable yarns, with firm, balanced weave. 5. For economy, choose staple fabrics rather than novelties of which you will tire.

Is it a cause of trouble to i you or a result of trouble you have had and are i having? Chiropractors know that pain is a i final warning that there is something wrong. i They know that pain can be eliminated in one i; way or another but that elimination of pain does i i not mean cure of the trouble that caused the i i pain. Permanent relief for pain can only come i through elimination of the real cause of the pain. If a vertebrae has slipped and is pinching a nerve the organ to which this nerve leads must suffer because of lack of brain stimulation. When the organ fails to do its duty for the body pain results. Sometimes it is a headache. The Chiropractor removes the cause of the pain and the pain disappears because there is no reason for it to exist. Try Chiropractic for health. Try it to keep your health and to regain your health. X-ray and Neurocalometer Service Dr E. R. Pennebaker CHIROPRACTOR Office 2 Blocks West of Telephone Office-Phone 114
