The special features of the after

Our. object in holding this conven
tion in San Franciscd," said Flaher

an opportunity to see the United
States before passing upon this ambi
tious program for the benefit of Amer

country will inspire every man at
tending the convention with the ut
"In addition to the program-already
mentioned, we shall receive from
Archbishop Hanna of San Francisco,
one of the leading members of the
Catholic heirarchy in the United
States, a call to fight lax divorce laws
in this country. We have discovered
in the Knights of Columbus work of
securing homes for dependent orph
ans that children suffer greatly
through lax divorce laws to a great
er extent, in fact, than through the
deaths of household bread- winners.
"This is an evil to which the paid
reformers might well turn their ener
gies instead of pestering the American
people with foolish movements de
signed to restrict personal liberty."
No Expense to Service Men
Flaherty added that the Knights of
Columbus record showed that with
$40,000,000 the-knights had provided
recreation and free creature comforts
for 5,000,000 men during tha war, se
cured employment for- more than
300,000 after the war, technical train-'
ing for 130,000 former service- men
and women, college education for 500
veterans, and that now the Knights
were maintaining an educational eys
tm of 128 night schools throughout
the country and providing recreation
and creature comforts for 25.000 men
in 62 military, marine and government
hospitals. " "
All this work, he concluded, had
been done without costing a cent to
any service man. The Knights of Co
lumbus convention will vote to con
tinue the work until the last man is
cared for. "

It is unqualifiedly claimed that never before have so many of the great
est riders in the world been brought together for a single performance as in
the program of Howe's Great London Circus and Van Amburg's Trained
Wild Animals which will exhibit here on Friday, Aug. 5. The most expert
artists from the four corners of the earth have been successfully induced
to unite in the enormous bill of these supreme shows. The three rings of
the huge circus are filled with equestrian acts of novelty, peril and.exclus
iveness from the time the arenic program begins until the ending two hours

.When Otis Harlan is working in the
movies he drives a small sedan flivver,
the better to get about quickly and
avoid accidents or possible theft Dur
ing the filming of the latest Hodkin
son release, "Keeping Up With Lizzie,"
Mr. Harlan was cast in one of the
leading roles. One day he was hasten
ing to location in the country and as
it was very early and the road deserted
he "stepped on it" in order to catch up
with a car ahead which he assumed
to be that of Enid Bennett, who
played the star role of "Lizzie" in
"Keeping Up With Lizzie."
Just as he flashed past he saw that
the car that he had taken for Miss
Bennett's was full of traffic oSlcers.
There was a shot and call or halt, and
poor Harlan pulled up at the side of

the speed limit like that?" asked one
of the officers.

drew up and stopped where a motion
picture company was setting up to

called the director.
And then Harlan realized that the
"officers" were actors engaged to stage
a scene in "Lizzie," which, by the way,
is at the Murrette theatre Thursday.

Follow Early Vegetables
As a crop to utilize garden space
after early vegetables have been
harvested, nothing Is better than
the turnip. Turnips should be
planted in most parts of the coun
try .about July 25, but in the ex
treme South as late as the last of
August and can be left in the
ground until after several light
frosts or all winter in the South.
They are useful as a table, vege
table and to a limited extent will
supply the place of potatoes. It is
the general opinion of specialists of
the United States Department o
Agriculture that the American pub
lic could consume many more tur
nips than It does, a fact of partic
ular interest this year when there
seems every indication of a cur.-,
tailed potato crop.
For field sowing, turnips are us
ually broadcasted. The particular
requirement is a reasonably rich
soil finely raked and leveled off to
avoid water collecting in pools.
The seed should be sowed sparing
ly. One homey rule isto take the
quantity which seems sufficient
and divide it in half. After the
seels have been scattered on the
surface of the ground, they should
be well raked in. This may be done
by dragging a piece of brush over
the ground. The surface should be
well smoothed. It is a good plan
to sow turnips Just after a rain,
giving them opportunity to sprout
before a crust forms. After sow
ing they will need little attention
IT DOES PAY TO
A hog feeding demonstration
forcibly brought out the fact that
under dry lot conditions, it takes
13 bushels of corn to make 100
pounds of pork. By feeding tank
age with the corn, it required but
IVi bushels of corn and 33 pounds
of tankage to make 100 pounds of
pork. By applying local prices, any
one can tell whether it pays to
feed tankage. We do not recom
mend feeding in dry lot; neverthe
less, many folks are feeding that
way. No one claims that tankage
is the best high protein supplement
therels. Skimmed milk is better
and in the feeding trials conducted
at Purdue University, fish meal
showed up a little hetter. We aren't
arguing for tankage; we are saying
that fattening on corn alone with
out a high protein supplement is
not a paying business. Neverthe
less, tankage is more available than
most of the others. The dairyman
selling whole milk has to feed
tankage as well as the professional
If you want fine looking musk
melons, place a shingle under each
ripening melon to keep it clean and
so there will be no yellow blotch
on the underside.
Morning Is the time to weed and
cultivate (except with beans, when
covered with dew), because the
weeds can be thoroughly baked by
the sun all day and thus prevented
from taking root again. .
Summer pruning of fruit trees is
now in order. It should be nothing
more than a light shaping process.
Black raspberries may be multi
plied by bending over the canes,
holding them down with (a stone or
peg and covering the ' tips with
earth. New plants will be formed
by fall. Gooseberries are increased
by rounding up earth around the
base of the bush. Later, the branch
es that have formed roots may be
removed as cuttings.
If your catalp trees are being
ravaged by the catalpa sphinx, a
yellow and black worm about two
inches long, spray the trees thor
oughly with arsenate of lead, one
ounce to two gallons of water. If
in small numbers, the worms may
be shaken from small trees and
crushed under foot.
GOOD RATION TO FEED
BROILERS FOR MARKET
Many farm men and women. In: .
Indiana will be getting broilers,
ready for the market during the
next few weeks. The ration fed
for several years on the Purdue
university poultry farm which has .
given best results consists of two
pounds of corn meal, one pound of
shorts, one pound of ground, oats,
eight pounds of buttermilk.
This should be mixed and allow
ed to stand and sour for 24 hours
before feeding, and then placed in
a trough in front of the birds, only '
outside the crate. The birds al
ways appear ravenous and eat
greedily. If they do not, something -is
wrong and they should be taken
from' the crate. Give them all they '
will clean up in 30 minutes twice
daily and no more. After feeding,
clean and dry the trough so that it
will be ready for the next feeding.
Water is not necessary except in
hot weather, and grit should be fed
every few days. Two weeks is the
average length of time to feed. The
greatest gain is made the first -week
but in most cases it-Is prof
itable to continue another week.
Windbreaks are in many ways a
farma asset. They tend to prevent
the soil from drying out quickly
and they protect grain and or
chards from injury by the wind. A
belt of trees near the farm build
ings protects them from extreme
cold and from summer's heat: Trees I
make the farm a pleasanter place'
in which to live. The windbreak
may be also a source of wood sup
ply for fuel or for sale.
LET'S TALK "GOOD TIMES"
We all think we have the hard
est time in life of anybody on earth,
but if we compare notes with other
folks we will find that every -one
thinks about the same way, ; Fool
ish business to look at it that way,
though. Let's talk good .times, .It -will
help us to have the best time
Don't Stop Feeding Chicks
"When can I quit feeding the
chicks?" wrote a farm woman re
cently to the poultry department of
Purdue university. Like many oth
ers this woman believed that the
chickens would grow satisfactorily
if allowed to shift for themselves
after they were big enough to get
around. This is a mistake. Feed
ing of grain and a dry mash, con
taining meat scraps or tankage, is
desirable throughout the season so
that the pullets may be matured
and started to laying before cold
