The unusual sight of thunder and

was due to the fact that while z rain

ragid for several hours and the snow,
fall amounted to five inches '

With ice and snow. The fall of snow

impossible to walk without falling

been low, too.
The weather conditions have
caused a great deal of sickness, con

How To Fight
' The Liquor Habit
Do yon honesty want to stop
nuking? Then read an article
n liquor by Booth Tarkington
n. the January American Maga
zine in which he writes abont a
nan who says: i
"They tell mq tnere are dipso.
nauiaci, (rid there may b'e some
abnormal people who can.t turn

And 1 don't believe there's the
ilightest question of will power.

'Ciously rxort my will, there
vasn't anything real to exert it
against. I didn't say to myself,
I will,' or 'I won,t.' 1 said,
'I've had my last,' and knew
that It wartroe. It didn't take
the will power, or the strength of
a caterpillar. It didn't take any.
I juBt rested a little, got my head
clear, and saw that I preferred a
real life, however little comedy I
found in it, to a drugeed one.
And, also, I preferred not to be a
sogiiy thing, myself. Fiuding
out that preference was import

Simple enough, isn't it.
Feed The Birds
At this period of the year with
the- ground all frozen and cover
ed with ico and enow these little
feathered neighbors of ours are
facing famine. They cannot
raise trembling bands aud beg
for charity, so we forget their
needs, and since they cannot
speik for themselves their friends
should never coaso to do it for
them in the same old words, win

TOO MANY MIDDLE MEN
Says a leading southern agricultu.
"bifteen just plain Mississippi
farmers got together without .any
frills, and shipped a car load of vet
ordinary hogs to St. Louis, gettufi
as high as ten cents a pound ty.
weight for them."
This item Jells a taTe that should
be of deep interest to every farmer
who has anything sell.
Why should it bethought necessar;
that everything produced on thclarhMf.
of our country Should go through the
hands of half a dozen middle men be
fore it reaches the consumer?
Tafee the case in point. Ordinar
ily these farmers would have sold to
a small stodk jobber, he to a shipper
he to another gp-between at the other
end 'of the route, when the stoda
would possibly have reached the pack
ers for whom it was intended. I
The action of those Mississipp
farmers is to be commended. Tl'
farmers of this community might dc
well to afford a like opportunity fo
They would get- more for UkF
products and trie ultimate consurr
in the end would pay less for v
necessities of life.
There are too many middle tr
And middle men are expensive !
in many cases wholly unnecessary.
