GREENFIELD FARM CAMP
Hundred Boys Register Community Takes Deep Interest
. .The fourth annual Crout farm en
campment for the 20th congressional
district, held this year at Greenfield.
Aug. 23-27. was a marked success.
There was an increase of regular and
interested learners; about 100 boys
were registered, half or more of them
camped on the ground, and the day
attendance was 60 to 100. The night
audiences were much longer.
The leading instructor in farm
crops was Professor O. D. Center of
the university of Illinois, who stajed
the five days. He reports the boys
regular in attendance, right on the
front seat and that they did more
thinking than the classes of last
year. He also noted that the ques
tions asked by the older farmers in
dicated closer and more complete
thought upon the topics than he had
seen at almost any meeting he had at
tended. He believed that one man
had voiced tho ideas of the progres
sive men of the community in say
ing, "I give $.". a year for this en
campment and I consider that I get
two or three times the value of the
subscription in attending the meet
As on last year. Superintendent H
G. Russell of Greenfield schools, look
ed after the details of management
in a very thorough manner. Mr. A.
P. Grout, the originator of the en
campment idea, was present most of
the time, giving able assistance. The
program began at 8:30 each morn
ing and lasted all day and during
the evening. Lessons or addresses
were given by Professors .1. G. Mo-
sier, Fred II. Rankin. O. D. Center
and Messrs. Leonard Hegnauer, R. C.
Obrecht and L. D. Hall, six men from
the university of Illinois; Farmers
A P. Grout of Winchester and W. S.
Corsa of White Hall; Francis G.
Blair, state superintendent of pub
lic instruction; Mrs. H. M. Dunlap
of Savoy and Professor Fred R.
Crane of the Dunn county, Wis.
school of agriculture.
Mr. Crane's demonstrations and
lectures on farm machinery, espec
ially the gasoline engine, and the
use of concrete in making silos, water
tanks, walks and floors, were both
popular and valuable. Mr. Hall ir.
three or four talks explained the cuts
of beef, using illustrations, told
about the selection of stockers and
feeders, and gave many result's of
I cattle feeding experrments at the un
iversity. Mr. Obrecht told how to
feed horses for market and he out
lined the excellent prospects for
raising draft horses, but emphasiz
Iing the fact that farmers must learn
this business and quit raising scrubs.
He told of the better methods fol
lowed in Europe as he has seen them
there. This second encampment at
Greenfield leaves no doubt of its pe
culiar value and acceptability to the
community. Some hints of the in
struction are gi,ven in separate notes

The Sort of Table He Wcnted.
The following conversation was over
heard between a joiner and bis cus
tomer a short time ago:
Joiner Please, sir. I've brought the
table you ordered me to make.
Customer Well, put it down here.
;ny mau. and let's see what sort of
job you've made of it.
The man set it down in the middle
of the room, and the customer exam
ined it with the air of a critic.
Customer Why. my man. there is
here a crack filled up with putty.
Joiner Yes. sir. Well, sir, 1 know
about that, but It wou't be noticed
when it sets hard.
Customer (coming across some more
putty) But here's some more, my
man. What is the meauing of this?
Joiner Well, sir, you see. a little bit
of wood chipped off the corner, and I
just put a little putty tbere to fill up.
It won't do no barm, sir, when it's set
Customer (finding some more putty
patches) Look here, my man. this
won't do. Why. here's a big lump
right In the middle of this leg. What
can yoa say about that?
Joiner (scratching his head and try
ing hard to find some excuse by which
to retrieve his honor) Well. sir. that's
no harm whatever, and the putty when
it sets hard will be firmer and harder
than the wood. So, you see, it will be
all the better if you wait a bit. sir.
Customer (sarcastically) Here, my
good man. just take this table home
and bring me one made of putty, alto
gether. I want a good strong one. and
you can fill tip the. cracks with wood.
The Wonderful Waters
Prepared to Suffer.
A road weary ' traveler plodding
northward from Mountain Home, Ark-
came to a crossroad barber shop. The
temptation to risk a shave was strong.
In fact, it was so strong that the
tramper decided to take a chance.
"Of course it's going to, be awful."
he philosophized. "He'll scrape my poor
face till I shriek and then rub in his
aromatic liniment until I weep in ago
ny. But this beard"
He entered. The barber was an ex
pert. His razor was sharp and didn t
pull. Neither did be deluge his victim
with an excess of bay rum. When the
shave was finished the barber asked.
Shall I shave your neck?"
But the traveler, recently from the
city, was not to be denied. . Why
tramp If there are no hardships to re
