RURAL CREDIT TRICKSTERS
Farmers Warned to He Cautious in
Dealing with Then*
The department has recently receiv
ed letters from a number of farmers
who have subscribed for stock in
rural-credit companies, including so
called cooperative companies which
appear to have no real cooperative
features.
In some of these letters the com
plaint is made that the agents selling
the stock make misrepresentations as
to when loans may be obtained by
subscribers and that the companies
later disclaim responsibility for the
statements made by the agents. In a
number of instances, farmers seem to
have gained the idea from the agen*
that they would be able to secure
loans within a relatively short time,
and express disappointment on realiz
ing that they must wait for an indef
inite period for the promised loan and
go on making payments just the same
on the stock which they have agreed
to take.
Whore farmers are confronted with
a proposition of this character they
should first read the prospectus and
the contract very carefully and make
sure that they know exactly what
these mean, especially the contract.
If the contract is so worded that its
meaning is not clear after a careful
reading, this in itself should be rea
son enough for extra caution. The
agent’s explanation of the contract is
not a part of the contract, nor is his
promise that the company will do
things not specified in the contract
by any means sure to be recognized
by the company.
Farmdtt ought, first, to find out
whut provision has been made for the
protection of the interests of sub
scribers, either through responsible
Government supervision over the ac
tivities of the company, or in any
other way, and if they are in doubt
they should consult competent advis
ers with regard to responsibility of
the company before paying over, or
agreeing to pay over, their own good
money. Always, in the matter of
subscription to stock in any kind of a
company, they should exercise cau
tion.
TURN WIND MILL POND INTO A
SWIMMING POOL
Will Provide Darrels of Fun For the
Young Folks—Copper Sulphate
Will Prevent Scum
On some country places much pleas
ure, particularly for the young folks,
may be derived from the use of the
wind mill reservoir as a swimming
pool in the warm weather. The only
essentials are perhays a load or two
, of gravel or sand thrown on the bot
tom of the pool if it is inclined to be
I .somewhat muddy, a moderate amount
> of care to keep out animals and too
much vegetable growth about the
. edge, and the periodical application of
i copper sulphate to destroy organic
I matter in the water and prevent for
. mation of scum. About half u small
. bucket of the copper sulphate or blue
i vitriol may be placed in a gunny sack
i and dragged about through the water,
, or left in a comer of the pond for a
day or two and removed.
A well-built spring board some
where on the edge above the deepest
part will add to the enjoyment, and
there will probably occur other ideas
for improving the pond as a pleasure
resort without hindering any use for
which it is originally intended.
The younger boys on the place
would no doubt be delighted to as
sume the task of working the trans
formation of the reservoir to a swim
ming pool.—Regina Emmerich, Colo

INDEPENDENT OF SUN’S RAYS
High-Power Lights Enable Film Pro

The whims of the weathei have reg

the film studios of the country, and
although the most favorable locations
have been sought, the actors and ap

to the unsuitable weather conditions.
Many experiments have been made,
with the Idea of placing them In a po
sition of Independence of the sun,
and In away the mercury tube lamps
have sufficed, but the main difficulty
in their use has been their awkward
shape, which makes It Impossible to
place them just where they were de
sired to secure th best Illumination.
The mercury lamps, combined with
the high-powered nitrogen lamps,
seem to solve the problem, ami they

ANCIENT TEMPLE GAVE NAME
Ammonia Was First Manufactured in
the Vicinity of the Oasis of
Jupiter Ammon.
The Libyan oasis o> Si wall la identi
cal with the ancient oasis of Jupiter
Ammon, where, near the famous tern
pie or oracle, the "vehement odor' of
Pliny was first manufactured by a
process too Inelegant for description
here.
Ammon, at first a pet deity of the ■
Pharaoh family circle, ultimately
eclipsed all the other deities of Egypt,
Libya and Ethiopia, becoming "king
af the gods." and his oracle In tho
present oasis of Slw&h achieved such
celebrity that Alexander the Great
considered it necessary to Journey
thither after the battle of Issue In or
ier to be acknowledged the “son of
God Ammon.” The oracle fell Into
disrepute under the Romans, and Pau
■anias reported It dumb A. D. 160. The
ruins of the temple are to be seen to
day two miles east of the town of
Slwah The Senussi long dominated
the oasis.
John Adams a Hard Loser.
John Adams, second president of g
the United States, was not a good
loser He wanted another term, and B
worked hard for It None of the can
didates received a majority of the t
electoral votes, and the election was
thrown Into the house of representa !
lives. But Adams had no choice
there, for he was third in the race,
and only the two having the highest I
number of electoral votes could be
voted for Thus the choice lay be
tween Jefferson and Burr, and Jeffer
son won. Adams was very much dis
gruntled, and did everything in his
power to make things unpleasant for
his successor He filled every vacant
office he could lay his hands on, so
as to leave as little patronage as pos
sible for JefTerson. Not only so. but (
In the closing hours of his administra
tion he and his party associates cre
ated twenty-three new judgeships, for
which there was no necessity, and
worked till the stroke of midnight on
March 3d filling out and signing com
missions for these "midnight Judges,"
as they wen called
Horrors at Home.
"The football tournament between
the teams of Harvard and Yale, re
cently held In America, had terrible
results. It turned into an awful butch
ery. Of twenty-two participants, seven
were so severely Injured that they had
to be carried from the field In a dying
condition. One player had his back
broken, another lost an eye. and a
third lost a leg. Both teamn appeared
upon the field with a crowd of ambu
lances. surgeons, and nurses Many
ladles fainted at the awful cries of the
Injured players The indignation of
the spectators was powerful, but they
were so terrorized that they were
afraid to leave the field."
