Lite plowing will be delayed and. wheat growers worry about a too heavy “top growth.” Wheat grown suddenly too tall falls before high winds or heavy rains, and athletic young gentle men, please notice: When the wheat stalk is over-developed, the head of the wheat containing the grain is feeble. Too much straw means too little wheat. And too much muscle means too little brain. Unless inhabitants are misin formed, the Western mind runs to peaeeful philosophy. The Joplin News-Herald says, “As to street siqns, read 'em and leap.” And the Richmond Missourian quotes a philosophical lady as follows: “Kissing is about to be carried so far that every lady is likely to get so tired of it that it may go utterly out of fashion.” The St. Joseph ^Mo.) News Press says: The mrls have re sponded nobly to the ajppeal for the observance of paint-up week.” A negro applying for admission to a Government training camp is told by the War Department that rules makes if impossible to admit Regulations say colored mep iwef enlist m colored regiments. Camps for colored young men will be established, which mar solve the problem. However, if whites have the right to decide In what regiments and camp3 colored young men may jwroU, it would seem only fair to 1st tne colored young men decide in what particular wars they would be enrolled.
