E. Liers, of Homer, Minn., who , makes a hobby of raising and training these wild creatures, rarely seen by man. According to a story in "Our Dumb Animals," Mr. Liers re- •cently showed up at the Angell Memorial Hospital and Dispensary for Animals at Boston, Mass., with ten otters,-all of whom were very • sick. Most of the hospital attendants had never seen one otter before, let alone ten. The otters were treated for their ailment, which proved to be a stomach disorder, 'and soon developed into the liveliest patients'the hospital had had in months. Mr. Liers' picture with three of the sick otters and one of the staff veterinarians and a dog appeared in the magazine with the story. Mr. Liers is probably the only .known otter breeder and trainer in the world. He has more than twenty of the fur-bearing animals on his farm in Minnesota.

Since wools will be hard to replace, it is' especially important that they be in good shape for wear next fall. Moth prevention is the big thing to remember in storing wools. Making sure that clothing is clean before storing helps control moths. Dry cleaning and washing are effective means of killing moths. Sunning and airing, as well as bi-isk brushing with particular attention to pockets, tucks and folds, will help rid the clothes of eggs and larvae as well'as adult moths. Wools stored for the summer should be placed in airtight containers with flake naphthalene or paradichlorbenzene scattered between the folds of the clothing, using Vi pound to a small_ container of about 3x2x2 feet. Mothballs may be used, but the flakes evaporate faster and allow fumes to penetrate clothing more rapidly. For a large closet or storeroom use 1 pound to 100 cubic feet. Keep the storage place shut as much as possible. If a closet is used for storing clothing, the flakes or balls are put in a cheesecloth bag and hung high in the closet or attached to hangers. Cedar chests are useful for storing clothes but they merely repel, rather than kill moths. Naphthalene or paradiclorobenzene flakes should be scattered between the folds and on top of clothing as in other types of chests and boxes. A further precaution to observe n storing wools is to store in a dark place because sunlight anc artificial light weaken fabrics anc fade colors. The store place shoulc be cool and dry_ to guard againsl mildew. Pvt.

Tips From County Home Economist An efficient wallpaper cleaner, recommended by Miss Alma G. Schultz, county home economist, can be made at home of unra- tioned materials. The cleaner is made by mixing 4 cups of flour, 4 tablespoons of salt, 2 cups of warm water, 4 tablespoons of kerosene and 8 tablespoons of ammonia. The materials are beaten until smooth and cooked over boiling water until the mixture thickens and does not stick when rolled between the fingers. Cool in a covered pan, knead, make into balls, and store in a tight container for several days to cure and to prevent crumbling while being used. This makes enough cleaner for an average size room. Before cleaning wallpaper, any cobwebs or loose dirt should be removed with a wall brush or clean soft cloth. If the paper is sooty, care should be taken not to let the brush or cloth touch the wall, as soot streaks are difficult to remove from wallpaper. Cleaning should be started the top of the room in an uncon- spicuous place. Rub the paper gently with short, even, overlapping, downward strokes. The soiled part of the cleaner should be worked into the center of the ball after each few strokes. Badly soiled paper may require two cleanings. Particles of cleaner left on the paper may be removed with a soft, clean cloth. For Air Raids Only Investigation of • a storm sewer- in Gladbrook proved the undoing of "Molly," dog owned by Fracile Hall. About forty feet from the point of entrance Molly got stuck and was unable to extricate herself. An hour's work of two men removing bricks finally brought rescue... .

Tragedy The wedding plans of Mary Fields of Searsboro, • Iowa, were shattered two weeks ago when she arrived at Ephrata, Wash., and learned there of the death o1 her childhood sweetheart, Sgt.

A soil mapper usually carried a small level in a holster that, looks like a gun and the auger he carries to bore holes in the soil is not a dynamiters weapon, the announcement said.

All of us have been paying increased taxes and we are paying them willingly because they are for a good cause- the defense of our American way of life. Have you ever figured out what accidents are costing the people of the United States even in these ;imes? The money that is spent for accidents isn't spent for a cause, because every cent of it is wasted. Accidents can be prevented and therefore any money spent because of accidents is money thrown away. Here is our accident tax bill.for ast year as announced by the Na- ;ional Safety Council: $113 per second $9,500,000 per day $3,500,000,000 for the year What is your share of this tax Dill? What have you done to contribute and what effort have you made in the reduction of this tax bill by driving safely, working safely, and living safely? Think 't over. _ FOR SALE—2 Purebred Milkhx Shorthorn bulls, 12 and 14 'mos old, 4 Purebred Berkshire boars Wm. Fritz, Rt. 1, Wesley, Iowa. 22-23 Trill. JL'Alkl., -LIU A, VV miles north 'Wesley.
