This town may never be a Chicago or New York, but it can be made to grow. If you have the impiession that these cities grew entirely be cause of their geographical location, you are wrong. That helped, but it took conscientious work and per severence to make them gtow and keep them growing- There isn’t a man in this town who would want to see it become a town of tenements. This town is a better place in which to live. You get the rain, the sun shine and the fresh air here, while in these big cities you get rain, little sunshine and practically no fresh air. If your boy talks of going to the city advise him otherwise. Keep him here in his own home, where environ ments are good and pure. If you want your children and your grand children around to cheer you when shadows of time begin creeping into you life, make this town so good your boy will want to stay here. Show him the old home is preferable to the big city in which to live. Unless old King Winter decides to give us a change of temperature from what has been dished out dur ing the past six weeks there is likely to be an ice famine the coining sum mer. Chequamegon bay cities will probaply be able to harvest a crop of ice, even though it will not be near ly as heavy as former years, but con ditions in other places are alarming. At the Twin Cities the Mississippi river is still free from ice and as a good many dealers depended upon this for their supply of ice there will be a great shortage. That Northern Wisconsin is not the only place where quietness pre vails as a result of the ending of the war and the ceasing of war activities is told by former Washburnites who are returning to their homes- One resident who returned this week said that thousands of idle men were traveling the streets of one big city which he had recently visited and that conditions were as bad in other places. The smaller places seem to be the least hit Blindpigging does not pay. This was learned by a local young man who plead guilty before Judge Axel berg this week and received a fine of SIOO.OO and costs for the offense. Soak it to them Judge when you get a chance.

In general, the aim of the home gardener should be to raise vegetables in which freshness is an important quality. Peas, string beans, Lima beans, asparagus and sweet corn, for example, lose much if they are not cooked almost immedi ately after they are picked. In the case of potatoes, corn, cucumbers, squashes and melons, it should be re membered that these vegetables occu py a large area in proportion to their yield and in a small garden consume valuable space which, in most cases, could be used more profitably. In the case of potatoes, however, it also should be noted that they are easily stored and are an extremely good staple crop, and many gardeners will find it to advantage to plant as much ground to potatoes as possible after sufficient space has been allotted to the other garden crops. , Plan Your Garden Early. Diagram your ground, allot the space to the vegetables you want to grow, buy your seeds, have your tools at hand, prepare for the opening of thtil growing season. Use All Available Space. Intensive culture and carefully ar ranged rotation will help make every foot of available space in the small garden produce the maximum yield. BE A “HOME GUARDENER” The home gardens of America are the home guard in food pro duction. The “home guardener” of this year—our second in the war —is forewarned and thus forearmed. The “home guardener,” before he arms himself with his hoe, must fortify himself with knowl edge. Every peck of vegetables pro duced \for home use this year from ground that never before grew food will mean a certain quantity of meat or wheat re leased for use behind our battle lines. Join the “home guardeners.” BOWLING LEAGUE IS ORGANIZED Six Teams to Compete for Honors at Y. M.C. A. AUeys First Game Played Upon the Alleys This Week. Promises In teresting Contest. A big meeting of bowling fans was held at the Y. M. C. A. assembly rooms on Friday even ing of last week, the purpose of the meeting being the organiza tion of a bowling league for the city of Washburn andfiomthe attendance it is apparent that there are a large number of “bowling bugs” in the city. The meeting was a very enthusiastic one and the outcome was the or ganization of a strong bowling league. In order that one team might not have the advantage of the other six captains were chosen and they drew numbers from a hat entitling them to choose in the choosing of teams. Thus the league was formed and a glance at the combinations con vinces one that there will be in teresting contests at the “Y” alleys during the winter months. The teams will line up as fol lows: Harry Risler, Captain, C. Han sen, Ole Green, Andy Johnson, Walter Anderson and Campbell. Gray Thompson Captain, A. Larson, Geo. Waters, Jimmie Cook, Roy Markham and George Morgan Capt. Peavey, Captain L. B. George, R. A. Hering, Joe Martell, V. E. Brubaker and C. McCall Chas. Wolff Captain, A. Weg sten, H. P. Axelberg, Mathews, Otto Pallage and Pete Fox John Gibson Crfptain, Ed. Kasmarek, H. Ross, Joe Johnson J. S, Fletcher and C. Taberman. Walter Milberg, Captain, A. I. Lien, J. D. Manning, T. C. Oscar Curley Beaudfn, Grant Johnson. The schedules of the games are as follows: Feb 10th—Milberg vs Thomp son Feb. 11—'Gibson vs. Risler Feb. 14—Peavey vs..

The first game of the league series was played at the'Y” alleys on Monday evening of this week and was between Mil berg's team and Thompson's team. A good deal of interest was centered in the contest and a good-delegation was present to root for the different teams. Thompson's team had the better of the contest, winning all three of the games and coming out with a total of 2347 pins against 2266 for Milberg's team. The high score was * made by Al. Larson with 210 pins and he also won the high average for three games with 180 2-3. x Charles Wolff was present and watched the foul line for both teams while members of other teams were also present to get a line on the players. The second game of the league series was played at the “Y” alleys on Tuesday evening, be ing between the teams captained by John W. Gibson and Harry S. Risler. From the very start of this contest it was apparent that it was a game in which both sides were determined in win ning the victory but in this it appears that Gibson's men had the better of the contest for when the total pins were counted it was found that Gibson's team had made a total of 2344 as against 2195 for the Risler boys. Both Captains had extra men on hand to sqbstitute and this was done first by Gibson who sub stituted Taberman- for Fletcher p.nd later by Risler who substi tuted Campbell for himself. Ross rolled the high score of the game with 197 while his high average for the three games was 188 2-3. Some of the best bowl ers on both sides had their off night and the pins would not fall. Risler says “just wait un til the next time” while Gibson chuckled up his sleeve and says “I told you so.” The teams captained by Wolff and Peavey are next on the docket and they say that the former games have been mild and will not compare with the scores they will make.
