Many ol the farm ers are now busily engaged in har vesting their hay and small grain, which was belated by wet weather, and the threshermen are making their rounds, so that they have but little time to devote to potato dig ging.

Then one of the men asked: "And how did you come to make that startling discovery?" "Well, it was this way. My wife was jumping on me something fierce, and I couldn't figure out how I de served it So I spunked up and said: 'Look here, why do you always pick on me when you're sore? Why don't you raise thunder with Albert once in awhile?' (Albert's our youngest boy.) 'Why,' she says, 'Albert wouldn't stand for it, that's why!'" *F4M A4U%4&Ski. i A Fall Greeting!
