Public Library to Carry Books to the Farm Families It Is One of the Six Such Wheel Libraries' in the $tate. There are some few things that are denied the farmer's family, simply because he lives out in the country arfd gets his mail out Of a R. F. D. mail box, rathe"r than from a uni formed postman. One of the most lamentable of these is the public libr-ary. And fhe public library Is perhaps one of- the things that the boy and girl on the farm need more than anything else. The public library commission of Indiana is trying to take their li braries into the country and have fit ted up six "traveling libraries" which travel through the country with an assortment of books for farm folk. The first of these wagons was put Into operation at Plainfield in 1915. (Since that time five others have be gun to take the books from the town libraries into the country. Thirteen counties in the state are covered by library systems with stations- estab lished in local communities of the county. In all there are 300 of the 1,000 township units se-rved from the town centers. This service covers more than two-thirds of the popula tion of the state and one-third of the purely rural population. While Indiana has done much to develop the traveling library system and to improve its service it cannot claim credit for being first to get the idea. ltural delivery service from town libraries started in Hagerstown, Md., where Tile book wagons have been serving Washington county for 20 years. TOBACCO RAISERS IN FRONT RANKS AGAIN Co-Operative Marketing of Crop Pays Better Than AnyOther Method Tried. At the close of the first year's ac tivities of the Burley tobacco growers In Kentucky, there is little doubt in the minds of tobacco growers in the state that the co-operative marketing of their crop pays them better than any other method they have ever tried. This co-operative association has rone more than it claimed by actually obtaining prices more than double those of 1921, and by bringing pros perity to 55,000 growers of Builey to bacco, who were worse than bankrupt Just a year ago. The splendid record . of the Burley Tobacco Growers' Co-operative association and these special achievements have placed the associ ation in the front rank among Ameri can co-operative marketing organiza tions. The American Farm Bureau feder ation participated in the attempt of the tobacco growers of the South to organize the marketing of tobacco co operatively. The Kentucky iann bu reau was host to a conference in Louis ville on March 29, 1921, at which more than 200 tobacco growers, represent ing ten states, indorsed the formation of a national co-operative marketing association by federating the existing exchanges. The Burley Tobacco Grow ers' association is leading in co-ordinating other state and local associ ations with the national movement. The Kentucky farmer's fight for good prices for his annual crop of 200, 000,000 of Burley tobacco has been one of ups and downs. The 1920 crop brought him the highest price he has ever received for his tobacco, but the 1921 crop ;vhich it cost 18 cents a : pound to grow, was sold at an average j of 14 cents. I By the first of this year the Burley j Tobacco Growers' association had se- , cured a pledge to receive 85 per cent i of the crop and 117 warehouses in- Ohio, Indiana, West Virginia and Ken- i tucky, for its exclusive use. The war j finance corporation and banks in inter- j ested districts had pledged almost $6, 000,000 in credit. On January 26, the warehouses were opened for the receipt of the pledged tobacco. It was graded upon deliv ery by the growers, and a check for an estimated value of 40 per cent of the worth of the crop advanced to the growers. The farmers have signed up for five years. dazing the trail for co-operative marketing in West Virginia, the tobac co growers of the counties around Huntington are just now organizing under the California or commodity plan, with the Burley Tobacco Grow ers' Co-operative association. The results of the campaign, which Is now under way, will be watched with considerable interest by farmers throughout the state, offering as it does, an opportunity for them to ob serve the operation of an association Including a whole industry, operated entirely by farmers. James C. Stone of Lexington, pres ident of the association, made this the message of his address to a large gathering of growers at Hurricane, June 17. "This is our association," he said. "We have associated ourselves togeth er to do a certain thing, that is, to market our tobacco in an orderly fash Ion. We will get more money, it is true, but the association Is bigger thau money. For the first tiftie, we are able to associate on anything. Tobacco is the first, but other things can follow, and will do so. This is the beginning of an age o'f association of farmers." Putnam -is the first tobaeeo-produc-ing county to be organized fully for the campaign work. Other counties are signing contracts, of the associa tion, and will be, ready soon to stage their own drives. Preliminary educa tional work has been in progress for two months, in charge of - Clifton Rodes. The organization has estab lished an office at Huntington. Kentucky was the first to perfect and actually market the tobacco un der this pooling contract system, but the organization of tobacco growers under similar plans is proceeding at the present time in Virginia, West Vir ginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Wisconsin and the Connecticut valley. These organizations are' looking for ward to the time when all tobacco growers will be. enlisted in similar or ganizations and to the next step which will be the federation of the organiza tion into a nation of tobacco growers' exchange. TWO NICE EYES Now Peter Gnome was perfectly de lighted when Mean Old Measles had to pick up her things mid leave Lucy. Of course, she couldn't be got rid of in just a moment or two, but once she had really been forced to start in leaving, that was the main thing. Ca rrie Cough had to leave with Mean Old Measles, and that made Carrie very angry. Carrie was a good companion for Mean Old Measles, for Car rie was as mean anyone could well be. playing in Lucy's Whole System It Benefited by Tanlac Thousands of frail, nervous people and convalescents everywhere have testified to the remarkable power of Tanlac in bringing back their health, strength and working efficiency. It seems to quickly invigorate the consti tution, and is a powerful foe of weak ness. Mrs. George G. Owen, of Salem, Oregon, says : "My nerves wore upset and the little I ate wasn't enough to kep up my strength, so I lost weight and became so weak it seemed I had no energy at ! all. Tanlac restored my health com j pletely, and I gained twelve pounds in weight." There Is not n single portion of the body that Is nut benefited by the help ful action of Tanlac.

Now Peter Gnome had been told by Fairy Wondrous Secrets that Lucy had to take great care of her jeyes. He had been told that Mean Old Measles was only too anxious to leave behind her all sorts of things, such as sore eyes and rheumatism, and Peter Gnbme took great pains to see that she woulnot do this. He saw that the doctor was being very careful not to let Lucy catch colli and to make her careful of her eyes. And he saw that Lucy's granny .was being very careful of Lucy, and that Fortune in Scrap Iron.

BELIEVED IN "EARLY TO BED" Small Town Evidently No Place for Individual Accustomed to the City's Bright Lights. Recently two newspaper correspond ents were sent to the coal fields in Clay county, where martial law has been declared, and in the evening they wandered to a small village near the fields in an effort to find some enter- ! taiimient. After walking up and down Main street several times, the correspond ents sighted a public drinking foun tain. It was then nine o'clock. On ex amination they found that the drink ing fountains had been locked by the town official for the night. Then they headed for a drug store and found the proprietor locking up for the night. On inquiry they were told that "it is past nine o'clock." One correspondent sain to the other: "Well, Mack, do yon suppose the hotel is closed for the night?" "I don't know,'" the other replied, "but I think we had better get to bed before they move the curbstones in." Indianapolis Xewe. The Cuticura Toilet Trio.

Hays, formerly horticulturist for the extension service of A. & M. college of Texas, has accepted a posi tion with the Texas farm bureau, as vice director of commodity organizai tion. Mr. Hays was formerly on the faculty of the University of Missouri.

TOBACCO GROWERS SIGNED UF Massachusetts and Connecticut Farm ers Have Agreed to Support Pooling Project. Growers controlling 21,000 acres of tobacco in Massachusetts and Connec ticut have signed with the Connecticut Valley Tobacco Growers' association in support of a tobacco pooling project. It is estimated that the sign-up will control 75 per cent of the tobacco acreage in the two states. The Wisconsin Co-Operative Tobacco Marketing association has reported contracts with G.000 growers, covering 42,000 acres out of the state's total acreage of 50,000. Lucy had a soft, cool, damp cloth across her eyes so that the light would not bother them, for the light would have been very bad for- them Mean Old Measles hoped they wouldn't take such care. But they did, oh yes, they jld ! And when it was dark or when a dull, rainy day came along, Lucy could take off her bandage and then she would make daisv chains out of the leaves which were upon the flowers which "people brought to her. And she would dress and undress her paper "dolls. Oh, she wguld do so many things and she would play games, and her toys were all about her. Then when it was bright once more the bandage would be put across her eyes- as they did not want to shut the sunlight out by drawing the shades. Yet they did not want the sun to hurt her eyes, so the bandage was put on at such times. It was not that Mr. Sun would want to hurt Lucy's eyes, but Mean Old Measles had made them a little weak for the time being, and no one wanted them too weak for any length of time. And Mr. Sun couldn't get rid of the germs without shining, so he rejoiced when he saw he could do his good work without hurting Lucy's eyes. And Peter Gnome would hide behind the curtains and he would send mes sages to Lucy. Of course he did not let Lucy see him, as he 'had to wear his invisible robe. That was the only way he could go around calling in the daytime. But he sent messages which Lucy re ceived, as every once in awhile a thought would come to Lucy of a new game to play, or of a new way of keep ing herself amused, and that was Pe ter Gnome sending messages of suggestions. For above all he did not want Lucy to hurt her eyes or catch cold. He wanted her to be quiet, until she was all, all well and quite, quite strong. And he wanted to think of games which would not hurt her eves and he suggested stories and books for others to read aloud to her. "Lucy has two such nice eves," he said to himself so many times. At last the doctor came and said Lucy was all, all well. He said that every trace of Mean Old Meas les and Carrie Cough and the Spot children had departed and that Lucy could go out once more. . They burnt candles to be sure that all the old germs were killed and then once more Lucy was able to go out of doors. She was able to go back to school, she was able to go out on her rol ler skates. She was able to take her dolly out for an airing in her doll carriage. Once" more Lucy was all right. And Peter Gnome was very happy. "My little friend Lucy is quite, quite herself again," lie told his friends in Fairyland, "and those two nice, eyes of hers were not strained, at all for she was so very careful." And everyone in Fairyland rejoiced too. Kveryone had been so interested in Lucy and how they all hated Mean Old Measles. Being pleased with yourself is a condition of mind not intended for dress parade. Cutting Down Time of Apprenticeship. The Industrial association of San Francisco, Cal., has started a school of apprentices with some novel features. The boys have been divided into three classes and one class moves along be hind the "other. The first two weeks will be spent in school after which they will be put to work as assistant helpers for four weeks after which they will return to school , and so on during the term of their apprentice ship. In this manner of alternating the school and shop experience it is anticipated that from 12 to IS months will be saved and the "boys will be full-fledged plumbers in two and a half or three years instead of four. The apprentices will be paid for the time they are at work, but not for the time at school. Going Down. , Blackstone "Is - your wife still re ducing?" Webster "If you mean my income yes."

That Baby should have a bed of its own all are agreed. Yet it is more reasonable for an infant to sleep with grown-ups than to use a man's medicine in an attempt to regulate the delicate organism of that same infant. Either practice is to-be shunned.- Neither would be tolerated by specialists in children's diseases! Your Physician will tell you that Baby's medicine must be prepared with even greater care than Baby's food. A Baby's stomach when in good health is too often disarranged by improper food. Could you for a momenta then," think f giving to your ailing child anything but a medicine especially prepared for Infants and Children ? Don't be deceived Make a mental note of this: It is important, Mothers, that you should remember that to function well, the digestive organs of your Baby must receive special care.

French General Discarded Cigarettes When Great Offensive Against German Enemy Began. The truth about Foch's famous pipe same out also on the Metz trip. It was on the way home, and the marshal was dining in M. Poincare's private car. After dinner the prime minister said : "Pray smoke your pipe If you like, mar shal." The soldier pulled a beautiful case, containing two handsome pipes, from his pocket. As the chief of state commented on their beauty, he said they were given to him by a group of American artists. 'Have you been smoking a pipe for long?" asked Poincare. "My first pipe was on July IS, 1918." "The very day you began the offen sive that led to victory?' exclaimed Poincare. "Yes. The cigarettes were fearful j at the time, so I took to the pipe, like everybody else." And that is the true story of the fa mous "peace pipe" of Marshal Foch, if we can trust Le Slfflet.
