TOYS I USED TO KNOW
Within th# shopping center here I stand a wa.f and stray, And watch lh* throngs of women dear Who pay and pay and pay. Wule-#*y#d, a look about, but oh! Where are the toys, I used to know? Swift an acrobat goes by, To boyhood's marveling, And fascinated eyes rove high To watch the wonder thing. Hut, heart of mine! across my sight There floats a little homemade, kite. My boy demands a ’lectric train, With fifty feet of track. Mis modem spirit skims the plain And brooks no holding hack. O f’hrislma* when I used to bless My key-wound fifty-cent express! My little girl I must amuse, Arxl so I buy at view A doll that wears French high-heeled shoes And silken stockings too! Yet 10, a t ision from above My sister’s doll, of rags and love! O dear, dead days that brought to me My earliest burst of speed. When Santa placed beneath the tree My first velocipede! Vet my son tells the Christmas Czar He’s got to have a motorcar. 0 tree, long since decayed and dead, What joys you held apart! Gee! how those mittens, thick and red, j Warmed both my hands and heart! Hut now my wife 1 have to buy A pair of auto gauntlets high. Here, where the incandescent* gleam \ Amid the costly show, 1 seem to sec as in a dream, The penny candles glow. Tree of my youth! m> heart grown j new, Again hangs on a branch of you! —John O’Keefe, in New Y’ork World, j FEED FORTY CENT CORN TO EIGHT CENT HOGS “A bushel of com in the hog is j worth two in the corn crib.” This is about th* way Dr. H. J. Hat- j teraon, director of the University of I Maryland Experiment Station, sums j up the present situation of the farmer j in Maryland who has produced a large | crop which he is finding it difficult to j dispose of at a paying figure. i ■ Although the quotations for spot ■ com in the Baltimore market are „ around 58 cents per bushel, the farmer . who has to sell his com on the farm or ' at local buying points is getting no ( where near this figure, according loDr. i Patterson. Many sales of com at local J buying points, which means that the ( farmer has loaded and hauled the pro- / duct from the farm to thosepointshave . been marie at 36 and 40 cents per bush- ( el, says Dr. Patterson. In one county, ( according to report* reaching Dr. Pat- t terson, com has sold as low as 26 cents > per bushel. ( “At these prices,” says Dr. Patter- / son, ** it is belter economy for the ( ’ farmer to feed : s much of his crop as ( possible to hogs despite the prevailing / low prices of pork. Results of numcr- J ous experiments in feeding hogs on V com rations alone show that on an av- 1 erage, about ten bushels of com can / be expected to produce 100 pounds of pork. In experiments where other ( feeds, notably grazing crops, have / been used to supplement the com, re- ] suits have been better. "With com selling at 36 cents per bushel, pork can he produced on this j on# feed alone, at an average cost of $3.63 per hundred. At 40 rents per bushel, it should cost $1.15 to produce | a hundred pounds of pork. Live hogs i am selling at from 7 to H cents per pound so that the farmer who feeds 36 cent com and produces a hundred pounds of pork for $3.63 still has a 1 pretty safe margin of profit. Another factor in this connection worthy of the farmer’s consideration is that in feed ing com to hogs, approximately 80 per cent, of its fertilizing value is retained on the farm instead of being sold.” I A GREAT BIG HOPPER When you find your green peas tarn- 1 pered with and see a rabbit hopping spryly from the garden you don’t feel | very angry. The bunny’s size, his gen tleness, and his winsomeness mitigate the damage done. Hut if you lived In ; the Australian group of islands, and > went out some morning to catch a kan- . garoo hopping out of your garden plot, ( taking ten of fifteen-foot leaps as he , / went and leaving a ruined plot behind ) him, you might feel at least a bit mel- V inrholy, while a whole herd of hop- f ping kangaroos, everyone as tall as > your father, would prompt you to plan a higher, stronger fence for next se- ( son’s garden. 1 > The kangaroo never eats flesh, so J never harms people or animals, while ( it U almost us timid as a rabbit It ( carries its young around in ita pocket, . or pouch, and the babies are trained > to pop into Mamma Kangaroo's hiding- ( place when flightened. The onossum t of our country has the tame kind of ' pocket as Its cousin kangaroo, where ( the little ones are carried in times of | / danger.—Lillian Trott in Our Dumb Animals. | ( THE QUADRUPLE ALLIANCE I , Four great nations - France, Great | i Britain. Japan and the United States i are entering into a treaty concern- I ( ing the islands of the Pacific. The | treaty, in brief, is an agreement that if differences arise between any or all ’ of the four nations, they will arbitrate i ( those difference* rather than go lo war , over them. This is all right, as far as it goes. I But why limit the arbitration agree- , menl to the islands of the Pacific? Why not include all other mutters in 1 which these four nations may have a common or conflicting interest ? And why limit the alliance to these i four nations? Why exclude Italy, Spain, Holland, the Scandinavian and all other countries? I This quadruple alliance looks to be , all right, at first glance, but the more unsatisfactory it becomes. It falls so 1 fur short of what it ought to lie. I And it would lie so easy to enlarge it and perfect it. HE BELIEVES Sir Oliver Is>ge. one of the greatest of British scientists, and until re cently an agnostic, is now I tying to communicate with the spirits of his dead friends and loved ones. So far he has not succeeded. Some people may regard his efforts os a sort of heresy, a thing that would ; much belter be left alone. They may claim that a teal Christian would not engage in such efforts. But is it not a significant thing that this noted scientist is devoting all his knowledge and talents to trying to prove in a material way the things which others of us have accepted on faith ? Does it not prove that he now be lieve* m the immortality of the soul a doctrine which until recently he denied ? If he did not believe he would not he trying to prove his faith? PLENTY OF PROOF From People You Knot From Bel Air Citiaens The greatest skeptic can hardly fail lo be convinced by evidence like this. It is impossible to produce better proof of merit than the testimony of reai ifiits of Bel Air, of people who can be j seen at any time. Read the following i case of it; J. I). Whitmore, auto trimmer. Main St., Bel Air. says: “Some years ago my kidneys became | disordered and weak. I suffered quite I a lot with dull, nagging backache* and I a soreness across my kidneys. When I 1 stooped it was hard for me tostraigh- fc ten and my kidneys didn’t act right.
