counting the cells present on 50
different areas on the glass, as
seen under the microscope, it
Lwas.estlrnated that the cup con

as 150 germs were seen clinging
to a single cell, and very few
cells showed less than 10 germs.
Between the cells were thous

An oxchango recommends
"Potato Water" as a cure for
chilblains stating that it should
bo prepared same as for yeast
in bread making, and that the
feetgshould be soaked in the
liquid for 14 minutes, before
go ng to bed. It also adds that
the water can be used afterward
for making yeast cake for your
neighbors, so there is Ho loss in
useing the brew.

It is early yet to consider 1910
crops, but better plan early than
too late. In this connection we
want to urge broom corn for the
leading money crop It is easily
grown, matures and is ready
for market sooner than most
crops; and will do about as well
on sod as on old ground. It is
worth big money now and is
likely to be very little cheaper
another year than it is at pres
ent. Arrangements are being
made by some of our business
men to get a good supply of
seed' and we hope to Bee a big
crop of it plahted. It was a
winner in the early days of Ok
lahoma, and is largely planted
in that state even yet. It stands
drouth as well as any crop
grown, and there is no doubt
that it it adapted to this soil.
Farmers need a crop that will
bring cash, and in our opinion
broom corn is the answer. By
planting at intervals you can
have your harvest begin in July,
and continue until frost and it
is cash on the paddle whenever
you have it ready for market.
There is no crop easier to raise
and to handle, and it brings
from 50 to $200 per ton. It
takes ordinarily from four to
rive acres to yield a ton of brush.
Tho stalks make good fooder.
