TO BRIGHTEN FARM HOMES.
Work of Miss liens Bailey, a Univer

r Miss Iena M. Idl!ey. a student in
the home econonids department of the
- University of Missourl at Columbia,
Mo., has invaded a new field. S1he is
I a lecturer to farners and particularly
to farmners' wires.
Under the direction of the state
board of agri-ulture she goes over the
state to fartmers' institutes. Her ob
I Ject is to get the women amid girls of
Missouri interested In better home
work and the lessening of the drudg
ery found in so many country homes.
The board sends her out to talk a
new side of farm life at the institutes
tn the winter months.
"I believe the girls should have the
same chance as the boys." Miss Bailey
says. "The farm boys are given the
opportunity to take part in corn grow
ing and stock judging contests, and the
girls likewise should have something
to stimulate their interest in the great
work of the home. At Sarcoxie we
have started the first of our contests
for girls; it is a buttonhole contest."
In her talks Miss Bailey discusses
foods, clothing, homes and home fur
nishings. She attempts to organize
homemakers' clubs at all these Insti

A new canal on Mars a thousand
miles long has been discovered by
Professor Percival Lowell of the Flag

that the planet is Inhabited. The an

made the other day to Professor S. W.
Burnham of the Yerkes observatory.
Professor Lowell spent a few hours in
Chicago recently on his way west.
Not only did he see the new canal,
but he photographed it. Previous pho
tographs of this region made as late
as last May failed to show any trace
of the canal. The fact that it devel
oped between May and September,
when it was first observed, Professor
Lowell regarded as positive proof that
it was artifIcial and therefore that liv
ing beings exist on Mars.
The new canal ctends southeast
from the region of vegetation, known
as Byrtla Major, through the great
plain of Libya.
FARMER'S HINTS ON LIVING.
Drop Style, Pay Your Debts, Buy For
Cash and Look Ahead.
Be a farmer and snap your fingers
at the monopolists, says 0. C. Biggs
worth, a Venango county (Pa.) agricul
turlst. "But If you must live in the
city," he says, "then buy your apples
when they are at rock bottom prices
and snake apple butter. Lay in fifty
quarts of tomatoes when they are 60
cents a peck and preserve them.
"I take idone with those who say
things cost more than they used to,"
he d6ntinued. "In 1872 I paid $1 for
four pounds of green coffee, 12u cents
a pound for sugar, 15 cents a pound
for prunes and 26 cents a pound for
rice. I paid $8 for a lilt I could buy
now'for $1. $3 for gloves that I could
