Making the Record. L. L. Van Ginkel has established this year's wheat crop record in all probability. One fieid which he rais ed on the McNerney ranch returned a yield of 65 bushels per acre ami sold at $2.67 per bushel or at the rate of $174 per acre. That will pay pretty fair interest on SIOO land. The Amer ican Beet Sugar Co. threshed out 5? bushels per acre on a 35 acre field on the East farm and sold it for $2.6S per bushel making a return of sl3! per acre for the field. Since Mr. Hoover, the food dictator, has now taken hold of the situation it is be lieved that the future sales will be a a much lower figure and there will b< no more returns equal to these fig ures. The mills are not buying a* present, but waiting for him to : ; nounce his policy for the future. Methodist Church. Sunduy School at 9:45 a. m., with classes for all ages.

Jan. 1895) Sell Right Store Circus Day. Cole Bros, circus came to town on Monday and if uny person doubted the desire of our people* to see the old fashioned favorite entertainment of both young and old all they had to do was to view the crowd. The tent was packed to overflowing in the aft ernoon, and the management not dreaming they could have two such crowds in one day tore down part of j the seats before the evening per formance. They had to put part of them up again. The town was full i of people some coming from u d tance of a hundred miles, and all were jammed on its streets when the par ade went by. Everybody was happy and contented even if it was only a small circus. What there was of . was good and it was the first time they had the opportunity in two years. It is time our city council repealed the antiquated license ordinance try ing to keep circuses out of town to prevent people from spending their money. The ones that go uway to see circuses at other points take a lot of money out of town. While the people who would come here to see a big cir cus would leave more money than the circus could get away with. We be lieve in offering inducements to the best and biggest shows to make this town every year. Nobody but a regu lar killjoy grouch is opposed to a cir rus anyway. Heavy Rains. Most sections of this county have been visited by heavy rains the past week breaking the long drouth from which we have suffered. The weather has moderated materially since, and all sections where it fell report great crop improvement. Several of the ♦•reeks were flooded on Monday night causing a temporary blockade* on the railroad but it was soon broken. REAL FOOD VALUE IN SALADS. Though Often Regarded as Dinner- I Table Folderols, They Contain Valuable Food Elements. Some people think that salads ar an extravagance, time killers, and general nuisances. However, if the food value of salads is properly up ' predated, their use will not be con j fined to company dinners and Ladies' ! Aid meetings. In the first place, any salad drest ing contains a considerable amount o fat. Usually, there is an accon paniment of herbs, as lettuce or water cress, that furnish valuable mineral constituents, as well as giving bulk. ' For the materials for the main pan of the dish, there are many to choose from. If the meal has been heav>. J fruits, furnishing water and mineral-, might well be chosen. If the rest of the meal is light, the more nutritiou> ' animal or vegetable foods may b r used, c. g., meats, shell fish, eggs, P nuts, cheese, or vegetables, either raw 'or cooked. A salad is a many-sided dish, in . that is usually includes some of all the food principles. There is con . trast in texture, flavor, and color. , The appearance of a salad may be decided stimulant to the appetite. Also, salads are just as valuabb for the man doing heavy work, a they are for his wife, and they will not make him into a monocled, wrist watched mollycodle.
