Former service men will no doubt
be interested in te statement made
by President Harding in a speech a
few days ago. According to the
dailies, the president said" in effect,
' that while he was greatly interested
in the fate of the injured ex-service
men, he had little concern for those
who returned .without injury (for
they had the reward of having had
the experience and service, and asked
them to stand back of him in what he
would attempt to accomplish during
his term of office.
' There is an old saying the ,'cvery
knock is a boost". Well, the school
board of District No. 2, sure got a
dandy "boost" last week. And Lib
eral also got the same kind of a
"boost", from the same source. How
ever, we question the value of such
"boosts," believing that the 'direct
kind are the best in the long run.
Secretary Mercer of the State
Live Stock Association is out in an
article lauding congress for the leg
islation passed to aid the farmers of
the country. This is the 'first anyone
knew that the farmer had been help
ed a great deal, other than to be re
lieved of his products at less than
the cost of production. With steadily
falling live stock and grain markets,
poultry markets, butter and egg mar
kets, hide markets, etc., it is going to
be a hard matter to convince the
average farmer - that he has been
helped a horible lot. t ,

Have started drilling well and will equip
with good wind mill which will insure suf
ficient water at a reasonable distance to

These tracts are level and can be easily
irrigated, and I am positive that after mak

with the idea of owning a home of this kind
