The time has come, the Walrus said.
To talk of many things—
Oftsailing ships and sealing wax
And cabbages and kings.
Not many days since a friends was kidding the editor about
the jumps his editorials made from spuds to baseball, from gov
ernment policies to kerosene oil. Another party called up ann in
sinuated that we were a worthy member of the Ananias club be
cause while he did buy some potatoes from Mr. Black in 1893, fit
was from Gus Siegling of Upper Belt that he bought them in 1903
and in 1918 he bought some from Phin Irving on Box Elder. He
did not mix his potatoes in the same bin because in the winter of
1902-3 he had "et up" every darned potato and had to buy some
for the table as well as for seed. Since then we have been looking
for a safe sphere for our editorial vaporing«.
We have thought of the waters of Belt creek but that is such
a dirty subject. We have thought of prohibition but after quiz
zing some of our friends on the subject we find that the meaning
of the word is hardly understood. We have thought of bank fail
ures as a topic were being contempt by
the grand jury.
The dumping of ashes in the street has been a favorite topic
in the past but when we suggested recently that a man ought to
be tarred and feathered for his first offense and set to work ori
the road for his second, we were greeted thusly, "where do you
expect a man"to put his ashes anyway ?* He can't keep them in
hia front room. If you dump them in the back yard your wife
kicks because they blow on her clean clothes on wash day and be
sides it costs money to get them hauled away.
We shut up. How much nicer it is to have all the ashes
dumped securely in the street in front of your neighbor's door
where only in case of excessively high summer winds will they
elude your neighbor's living room and sift through the screen into
yours. The proper procedure is for everyone to dump his ashes
where he darned pleases and then take up^i subscription list among
those upon whom you can exert some friendly pressure to finance
the operation of some sprinkling cart during the summer.
The athletic field some say should be fenced. Maybe it ought
to be but far be it from us to suggest that anyone in Belt would
attend a ball game and refuse to pay. There isn't any such ani
mal here, and it must be that only in case of the visit of large
numbers of our neighbors could sue!) a thing happen. These same
neighbors live so far away that it is much safer for the editor to
east this vile insinuation against them than it would be to suggest
that anyone in Belt would do such a thing.
Belt is going to have a sure 'nuf ball team. Never doubt it
and let us just imagine the fun we are going to have scrapping
with our neighbors over the hill about the respective merits of our
teams and the damnable one-sidedness of the other fellow's um
pire. A Stockett fan recently told us that while Rachac had been
called to Portland they had filled his place with Hoyt of the New
York Yankees .with Urban Faber and Coveleski as subs. The only
thing for Belt to do is to get Babe Ruth, Sisler and Roger Hornsby
in our batting line up. Now some of our readers will take all the
joy out of life by suggesting that Belt hasn't got the money. What
do you know about that ?
We were going to write an editorial on "Spring, Beautiful
Spring" but the local weather prophet announced the other day
that we should have no spring this year but that immediately af
ter March 20th we would have hot summer weather,

The Ford Motor company enters
the new year with a new product, an
■II steel combination track body and
cab mounted on the standard Font
One Ton chassis to 0b sold as a com
plete unit. -■■■•■, ■ -V- - ■'
The new body is of the open /ex
press type, so constructed that it may
be readily converted into other body
combinations by using stakes, side
boards, canopy top, screen sides, etc.
"In fact," says the Ford statement,
"the purpose in producing the new
body was to place a low cost general
utility track, meeting both agricul
tural and commençai requirements, at
the disposal of ton truck users." <
The body is built of steel to with
stand the most severe usage and pre
sents a new development in constrc
tion. The steel sills are reinforced
with wood in order to lessen vibra
tion and road shocks, thus making for
more durability and longer life.
The loading space is seven feet two
inches in length, by four feet in
width*and of convenient and practical
depth. The end gate is strongly
braced and secured by heavy chains
which hold it in position when lowered.
The cab, also of steel construction,
is extra roomy. The seat is of arti
inch springs. 'Protection from the
weather is afforded by close fitting
door curtains mounted on uprights and
opening and closing with the door. An
oblong window in the back of the cab
gives ample facilities for rear vision,
adding to the .sifety as well as the
convenience of the driver.
The new truck which is already on
display in many Ford dealers' show
rooms throughout the country, sells
corhplete with steel cab and body for
$490 f. o. b. Detroit, being priced in
accordance with the standard Ford
In addition to the saving offered to
truck users in thjs body, is the con
venience of now being able to buy the
Ford Ton Truck complete and ready
to put into service.

Urging larger use of locally pro
duced sugar, the Cowley, Wyo., Prog
ress says: "The appalling fact comes
to light that the American people in
1923 took $260.000,000 from the Amer
ican farmers and paid it to Cuban
cane sugar producer*. And then we
wonder why the American farmer is
not more prosperous! Making a home
market for beet sugar is the most
practical way of helping the farmer
get more money for his sugar beets

You have thrown many a pair of good shoes away just
because the soles were worn through. Perhaps the count
ers were out of shape, and the welts may have been 'shot.'
Don't do it again. No matter what the condition of the
akqp, if the upper is good, we can rebuild it and make it
almost like new. Perhaps there is a pair of shoes in your
