The recent tirade which Gov. Allen,
of Kansas, delivered against Iie
South's ootton holding movement Ias
.,erved to bring out one thing .which
will he worth a great deal to farmers
of this section if properly considerd.
Kansas an(d the other cereal growing
tates have planted the greatest acre
age in their history In 'wheat in order
to profit by the price fixed by the gov
ernment. In Increasing the acreage
in wheat the avrearg in vorn had to
be reduced. A shortage in corn with
(onse qulien t high prices is likely to rv
silt. To the man who grows all cot
on and buys his corn. this should be
1ood for thought.
PROU'D OFTil F1al7. .
I.aurens occulies today, In regard to
her returning soldiers, just about such
a position as the bashful lover does
who is already condeined to servitude
by the fair maiden by hils side, but who
still remains speechless when the fate
ful cluestion would be asked. Ile
doesn't know what to do or say, but
just trusts to luck and to her that
things will come out. aright. Trusting
to her, incidentally, is often a very
safe plan. Dut iaurens hardly knows
,what to do for her returning soldiers.
She is anxious to express a sense of
appreciation and pride In the records
her soldiers of the Thirtieth Division
and all other divisions have nade, yet
too many celebrations and too many
speeches are not always to the taste
of the soldiers. They are human. rhey
want to go home, enjoy the pleasures
and treasures of homielife and forget
about the army and marching. .We
want to honor them all and do honor
them all, but it may be expressed by
a simple deference to -what may be
their wish-to be let alone for a time
while they renew their home ties. greet
their old firends and then make plans
for the fiture. Inut, whatever may be
the case, L aur lens is prolud of the bril
liant record her soldiers have made.

so please 'write me if you need help or

not received your seeds or instructions

Your tomato seeds should be sown in
hot beds as soon as posalble.
The roads to some sections of the
