"Three-quarters of love is nothing but unsatisfied curiosity," says a George Bernard Shaw quotation in the Arenac County Independent of Standish, Mich. The Algona (Iowa) Upper Des-Moines tells about the young coed who, when asked by the bursar's office to pay a $20 incidental fee, asked, "How many incidents does this entitle me to?" Home of the Purple Cow? Farmer Fred Peyer of Delavan, Wisconsin has large flowers blooming all year around on his farm silo. He might have started a new trend in rural art when he painted his silo entirely black then daubed in large flowers in bright gold, yellow, red and purple. It is known locally as the 'Calico silo'. One wag has said "Silage inside, corn outside,".
