THE LEXINGTON INTELLIGENCER, LEXINGTON, ?!0.' U. S. Grain Growers, Inc. Kansas City, Mo., June 8. Grain growers of Missouri and Kansas are to be given an op portunity to support the U. S. Grain Growers, Inc., plan for co operative marketing of the grain crops of America. This plan is the outgrowth of the rec ommendations made by the Far mers' Marketing Committee of Seventeen. The announcement that the plan is to be 'introduc ed into Missouri and Kansas was made here last week by C. H. Gustafson, president of the organization, following two days' conference with represen tatives of farmers' co-operative and other farmer organizations of the two states. Fifty trained fieldmen met here Monday. They will be schooled in the general plan of organization and operation of the U. S. Grain Growers, Inc. The school will be conducted by Judge P. E. Donnell of Waco, Missouri, and H. W. Avery of Wakefield, Kansas, and R. C. Obrecht of Topeka,' Kansa3. These men are members of the board of directors of the U. S. Grain Growers, representing their respective states, and they will be in direct charge of the oganization work. The work of singing contracts between local co-operative ele vators and the parent corpora tion will be the first undertak ing. As soon as that is complet ed, the fieldmen will make a canvass of grain growers and in dividuals will be signed for memberships. The entiref plan hinges on these contracts, P. E. Donnell said. Briefly the grow ers contract to deliver their product to their local co-operative elevator under any one of a number of options and then the co-operative elevator con tracts to market the grain thru the central sales agency. All of the legal aspects of the plan will be explained in detail to the solicitors at the- school here next week. The men will be schooled in the underlying fundamentals of the plan. As a guarantee to farmers against be ing victimized by unauthorized agents, the U. S. Grain Grow ers have worked out an identi fication card system and each fieldman will be supplied with a card on which is a copy of his picture together with the seal and signatures of the officers of the association. "There is a rapidly growing sentiment in favor of the plan," Judge Donnell said. "The vari ous farm organizations in Mis souri, particularly, have express ed a desire to give this plan their support. The U. S. Grain Growers is so gigantic a pro ject that the board of directors has moved slowly in order to leave nothing undone. "Now, however, our finance corporation, with a capital stock of $100,000,000 has been organized and we are ready to do business. Contrary to the general opinion, this great fi nance corporation will not in any , way supplant existig fian cial institutions but it will as sist banks in , financing grain movements from farm to mar ket in an orderly manner. "Heretofore, this has been impossible in many instances and grain growers have been forced to dump their , products on the market, helter skelter, within 90 days after the harvest with disasterous results to the producer. "The U. S. Grain Growers is a farmer-owned and farmer- controlled organization to which only grain growers can belong.' It is not operated for profit nor is it intended to serve as an a gency for boosting prices to the ultimate consumer. The only people we expect to hurt are the grain gamblers and middlemen." False and True By MARTHA Mc. WILLIAMS Ohildron Cry FOR FLETCHER'S CASTORIA ( 1921. by McClur Now.paper Sy ncikt.) "Why did they call me Llnnt? Of all ntuups I The resit of the world Is saddeM wheu I singl" Linnet War said plaintively to her new-! rtctlm, Selden Moore. He laughed, softly answering, "Praise be for that. In this day of musical prodigality, you're an oasis." "In a desert of melody I Thanki for them kind words," Linnet flung back, nettling herself comfortably In a nest of rainbow cushions. Yet even they could not make her look washed out, so vivid was the yellow of her hair, the violet of her eyes, the healthy scarlet of her very perfect mouth. Her skin had the texture of a camel lia petalshe was further shapely, and extra well finished. There was a look of race to accent all this. What wonder that she had gone rather to the heads of her countrymen at least that moiety of them lucky enough to know her? This in spite of the fact that she danced without enthusiasm, was a dub at tennis, and refused even to look on at golf. Polo she loved but sex and convention for bade playing It. So she took to going cross-country in any weather, never flunking the stiffest Jumps, nor mind ing hazardous spills. The spills were few she had ap parently as much Influence over hunters as over men. Anything bittable became pliant to her will after a few miles to the disgust ot Amazonian horsewomen who got re sults with malice aforethought. She was so confoundedly, so confounded ly feminine, with her side saddle, her noft collar, her picturesquely untidy tam that had always a bright knot tucked amid Its folds, It was disgust ing to have her almost always tn the first flight, and not winning prizes wlely . through refusing to' compete for them. She mounted herself well bpt not extravagantly. "Any good horse will go If yon get the best in him," she explained more than once. Which moved her much tired mother to add : "If only you'd be as sensible about men as horses, It would tak a load off my mind and heart." Being Interpreted, this meant, con cretely, a shrinking estate, and the Wendell King millions. All through Linnet's bringing op Mrs. Ware had had the millions In the back of her mind. Retrieving them was poetic justice, tdnce they bad been unjustly diverted from Linnet's fath?r through his elderly nncle'a marriage with the beautiful Widow King. He had settled them upon her In the first flush of Infatuation when the pair went down with their ship upon a long wedding tour, the wrong was put beyond righting. Wendell, a quiet, kindly, dull-witted lad of fifteen, had Inherited them from his mother In truRt for possible children. So It had been out of his power to do mor than make handsome gifts to tb Wares. Linnet, an elfin, no-colored child, had appealed only to his pity until at fif teen she bloomed with that beauty of the devil wMcb works to many evil miracles. Seeing her round and flush and glow, bis plan of life changed. ' When she was twenty she must marry him, and begin a fairy tale existence. (Cntll then let her play to her heart's content he knew he could trust her besides, there whs her mother. I Mr. Ware was far from heartless jlDdeed, love for her child was the spur to her worldllnes. She said nothing to Linnet of the future beyond advti ilng a wise choice If any. She knew Linnet would rebel against a cul and Jdried family arrangement much bet ter let her continue to think of Wn idell us a liberal pseudo-kinsman who .regarded her as a child to be teased land spoiled. When she hid had her ,fliiiH playing with the youngsters Lin met might sensibly drift into love iwlth her doting fairy roiifaiher. ; Linnet showed a zest Ir. ;ltijing with the youngsters equal to her zest cross. country, yet until the era of Selden tMoore her mother had never beeu th least uneasy. Knr her girl had played the game with tbe fine reserve of a ;geurlewomun, making her safety, In numbers and surrounding herself with ian aura of untouchableness beuutlful !to see. I But Moore wus different. Toward ;hlm she glowed as a gem, a star often' when he had left her she sat silent, smiling happily or rousing to hug her mother tight and whisper: "Is there anything like real lm'?" Moore was only rich enough to be a competent Idler.' Living was, he said, business enough for a gentleman- wherefore why swamp himself with the risks and the turmoil of active work, when he was so much more valuable as an example of moderation T I Linnet scarcely sensed the nut'stlon but her mother pondered it deeply. To her It meant either, that Moore ,had no thought of marriage, or that bis wife nOds must bring with her an Income equal to his own. Linnet could not do that already living ex penses were trenching upon their mod est principal she must either marry money or become a drudge, else pensioner upon Wendell King. Impossible to think of either alter native so Impossible Mrs. Ware lost sliep and Itcsh In considering them WutVhltig Linnet narrowly, she noted a subtle change In her. She laughed more and smiled less wiia by turns oxtreager and overlistlcss also, she had no more Joy In playing the game of hearts. A bad sigu, thought the cnxious mother, especially now tbat she was well past nineteen. She hud not found Prince Charm ing, plus even a scant million It was unlikely tiiat she would find him be fore WendeW King required a decision. She could not blame him he had been almost unreasonably patient and trust ful. He would not try to force Lin net's Inclination, but It would hurt him sorely to find he had waited in vain. She sat thinking things over upon a stormy afternoon when Moore was the only caller at tea time. Despite a lovely flush of greeting Linnet had gone to the window and stood looking wistfully out Into the rainy murk. Suddenly she said: "I wish every body could be home now, warm and comfy, with dry feet and good dinners ahead. That's what ought to be" "Agreed we'll make It so when we come into your fortune," Moore said teasingly. "We may not have to wait very long I heard yesterday the In surance folk are worrying a lot over Uncle Wendell's million-dollar policy." "I don't know what you can mean," Linnet cried, coming toward him white and shaking. "He mustn't die he Is so good I'd rather die myself " "What! When you're bis only heir?" Moore bantered.. Mrs. Ware looked at him fixedly. "You are misinformed," she said drily. "Wendell King could not leave Linnet his fortune it Is strictly en tailed, falling direct heirs, It goes to distant cousins." Moore'g face was a study. "I I am sorry I thought I knew," he said, Btumblingly. "Now I must be going. Au revolr." Linnet did riot hear' him. She was ot the phone calling breathlessly a number her mother smiled to hear. She shut ber ears against her daugh ter's voice, but her heart sang at the timbre of It something new and won derful rang there. Presently Linnet caute to her, becoming like a rose, to say: "Mother, he is perfectly, (splen didly well. We are to dine with him and go to the opera. I'm so happy, hug me tight." "You are going to be happier, dar ling," the mother murmured softly In her heart a mute thanksgiving that her daughter's heart had gone through the false to the true.

Lumpkin, writing of "A Hike In Alaska". In Boys' Life. "It Is not such a tremendous sheet of water. ' Not nearly so large as many other Alaskan lakes, being some three miles long by a luilf mile wide.

If that Isn't a good fish Btory, then you try to go me one bet ter. Other stories that I think are well authenticated are these: Tbat in winter, under fhe Ice Is heard a rumbling, groaning sound. . So much so that, although the winter trail lies straight across It, the Indians refuse to travel It, and go all the way round. That In summer there rise periodically great bubbles of gas of some kind, that bubble, and bubble, and finally die away. I talked with those who have seen this phenomenon. Then two things I found for Inyself. First, the lake Is very deep. It Is'eparkllng and clear, and shelves rapidly, a few feet from shore, to an unknown depth. Second, It does teem with fish, be cause I saw them, although I do not know the variety, for having no' prop er tackle, we did not catch any. The ones I saw would average two to three pounds. No monsters. But who can say what may inhabit those spark ling depths? I'gh !" Few Pence Once Day's Wage. The use of beaver, In making hnti came Into Veing nbout 1200," for Chau cer mentions It.
