How to be Happy Though Hot.
On nearly every farm and in
nearly every country home is a great
deal that can be done and ought to
be done to increase human comfort
in summer. Here are a few sug
I. Work early and late but take
a good rest and a nap in the middle
of the day. This is the custom in
nearly all countries to the south of
us, and ought to be followed more
generally by farmers in our sec
tion. The writer was talking re
ceDtly with ex-President Taft, who
emphasized this wise adaptation to
conditions in the Philippines as one
of the most striking features of life
in those islands.
2. Screen the house to keep out
flies and mosquitoes.
3. Provide comfortable ham
mocks, rocking chairs, and rustic
seats for the porch and lawn. Ham
mocks and rocking chairs don't cost
much, and after doing a hard day's
work, the tired farmer and his wife
are certainly entitled to the extra
comfort these conveniences offer.
4. Give the boys Saturday after
noons off for baseball or the swim
ming pool, except when the work
of crop cultivating is most pressing.
Mr. Farmer should also |have the
same time "off" for attending his
farmer's meetings and Mrs. Far
mer for attending the meetings of
her farm women's club. Arrange a
picnic, too, after crops are laid by.
5. Have plenty of big, red, juicy
watermelons together with an abun
dance of cantaloupes, grapes, figs,
apples, pears and peaches. Then
don't stop with eating these fruits
raw or in pies, but get the good
wife to learn the forty other ways
of serving and cooking them, each
one with a new and keen appeal to
the hungry palate, the very sight of
each producing what Charles Lamb
calls "a premonitory moistening of
the nether lip." (If you haven't
provided these things this year, you
can at least resolve now that you
will not let another fall go by with
out planting abundant fruit trees
nor another spring without planting
a big enough melon patch.)
6. Keep a great variety of vege
tables in the garden. Many far
mers have plenty of vegetables in
early summer, but a scarcity toward
fall. Let's see if every Progres
sive Farmer reader this year can't
have growing clean up to the last
of October all the good things Mrs.
Lindsay Patterson had growing up
to that time last year-corn, peas,
okra, lima beans, beets, tur
nips, cabbage, lettuce, radishes,
snap beans, sweet and Irish pota
toes, carrots, pumpkins, salsify,
parsnips, tomatoes and onions.
Don't let a foolish fancy keep
you from enjoying certain vegeta
bles, but try a little while and you
will learn to like all of them.-The
They Shall Return.
They shall return when the wars are
When battles are memories dim and
Where guns now stand shall be corn
Flowers shall bloom where the blood
They shall return with laughing faces,
Limbs that are lithe and hearts new
Yea. we shall see them in old home
Lovelier yet in the light of morn.
Dream not they die, tho their bodies
Spirits like theirs, so free and
Go on to conquer and vitally flourish
Spite of the sword and grasping
They shall return when the wars are
When the battles are memories dim
Where guns now stand shall be corn
Flowers shall bloom where the
They shall return!

ENGINE BUILT LIKE A WATCH
Fast, Modern Airplane May Read'* *
Cost From $10,000 to $20,000 and
Wears Out Quickly.
The engine of your motor car
weighs from 500 to 1,200 pounds, or
more. It will average from 20 to 30
horsepower et the lowest, says a
writer in Collier's. The new airplan*
engines run less than three pounds per
horsepower and the finest of them two
pounds or less. Airplanes have been
built with air-cooled engines for short
distance, fast scouting whose en
gines weigh less than a pound and
three-quarters per horsepower. They
must be quite literally, as an old ad
vertisement used to say, "built like a
At present a high-powered airplane
engine of the best type-say 120 to
150 horsepower-cannot be purchased
for much less than $3,000. And the
whole airplane, a big one, may readily
cost $10,000 to $20,000. You ?an read
ily see why the construction of only
15,000 airplanes, as in England's pro
gram, would easily equal, for a total
expenditure for men and camps and
hangars and repairs and wastage,
more than half a billion dollars.
A fast modern airplane has an aver
age life of only about two or three
hundred hours of active service-say
two months at the outside. This
means that to keep 10.000 airplanes on
a battle line you have to be able to
build 5,000 per month or more. The
,cost would be almost unthinkable.
That is why warfare in the air for any
length of time would bankrupt the
world. And that, In turn, is why war

SHIPS NEED OF AUSTRALIA
Grain of Little Value Without Trans
portation, as Little of lt 1* Used
"Australia's food production this
year will average normal ; it is neither
unusually heavy nor light, but there
is going to be considerable difficulty,
in handling the trops, because there
are no facilities for transportation,"
said H. W. Stephens, a merchant of
Melbourne, who was visiting the Unit
ed States. "The greatest need of Aus
tralia today is transportation. Until
ship tonnage is provided it ls almost
useless for the farmers to complete
their harvesting, as lt requires only a
small percentage of the crops to sup*
ply the domestic needs. Heretofore
great quantities of grain have been
shipped to England and it is still going
overseas, but in not sufficient quantity,
for En?Iand needs wheat now as never
before. But without ships it IA impos
sible for us to send our wheat
abroad. - . .? . ...??
"The wheat crop of Australia was
damaged to some extent by mice, and
until the farmers learned how to com
bat this pest lt threatened to become
a serious menace. The farmers used
poison, water, gas and other means,
and finally got rid of them."
Pray at Old Shrine.
Fifteen years ago the supreme court
of the United States evicted 300 In
dians from their old home on Warner's
ranch, in California. Some time later
the Sequoia league induced President
Roosevelt to name a commission to
find a new tract for the Indians. This
resulted In the government buying the
Pala valley, where the Indians found
homes much better than those they
were evicted from. But Warner's
ranch was the old domicile, where Fa
ther Ubach of San Diego held services
once a year, at which time ail mar
riages, baptisms and funerals were
held. The present priest is Father
George G. Doyle, and he has rehabili
tated the chapel "for memory's sake."
On a recent Sunday the old chapel was
rededicated, and the Indians from the
^ala valley were happy In praying at
?he old shrine.
I take this means of letting the
people know that I have re-opened

guaranteed. Let me know when
you have work and I will send for
it and make prompt delivery.
