Vic Pile, president of The Breckinridge County Farm Bureau has called a meeting of the members of this organization, and all farmers who arc not members, to meet in the Court House at Hardinsburg, Saturday, April 10, at 1 o'clocU p. m. This is a very important meeting the constitu tion and by-laws will be read and adopted, and an Executive Board, con sisting of one member from each magisterial district in the county, will be elected. Mr. Pile is taking hold of his work with a vim, like he does in his own business. He is enthusiastic in the movement and sees in it much for the farmers, as well as for every citizen in the county, whether he be a farmer, banker, merchant or mechanic. What Mr. Pile wants and hopes to ac complish with the help of the members of the bureau, is better citizenship, better schools, better roads and a better production of farm products. All of this can only be accomplished by organization and co-operation. 'The eyes of the whole world are on the farmers of this county and all over the country. Without them and their products there would be very little ac complished for the good of humanity. There is no politics in this organization nor political alliances. No officer of this Bureau is allowed to hold a political office 'and remain a member of the body. The Breckinridge County Farm Bureau has every promise of bring ing about an untold amount of good to our farmers and citizens. And ma.y we extend our congratulations to this organization upon its executive body. Mr. Pile, the president with Mr. Geo. N. Lyddan, vice president, and Mr. Joe Harth, secretary and treasurer, compose a fine body of men; men who are conscientious in the disposal of their duties, and who feel a keen interest in the welfare of their fellow PROSPECTS FOR BETTER SCHOOLS. Never before have the prospects for better schools in Kentucky been so encouraging as they are today. The General Assembly in its recent session enacted many laws aimed for the improvement of schools over the State, and the enforcement of these laws to the very letter will necessarily bring the desired aim. One law, which is essential fn this day of high prices, and which may he the means of inducing more young men and women to enter the prof fession, is that of providing a minimum salary for public school teachers at $75 But along with the taise in salary there are more rigid requirements of teachers, so that school teaching in this age, even in the rural districts, will not be altogether a "fat" job, as it were, and many incompetent ones will be barred. One of the foremost qualifications for teachers is the law requiring that teachers' examinations be held in counties and papers sent to the State Department of Education, and requiring high school education and normal training. It is an absolute fact that no teacher can inspire a pupil to seek a higher education unless the teacher has it. One cannot recommend the value of a 'thing they know nothing about. In this issue we are publishing the school reform laws in Kentucky so that the patrons of schools in Breckinridge county may be informed of the educational laws of the State. With road improvements in the county, there will be better oppor tunities for school improvements, and the proper development of religious and educational life must come with the development of our traveling facilities. THE RIGHT SORT OF GARDEN The United States Department of Agriculture states that more garden seeds have been sold this vcar than last which croes to nrove that while the war is over the home gardners hae producing all tliey can But as one writer said, "Two and three years ago many Americans who had never planted before did a bit of gardening to save their country. This year They are going to plant in order to save themselves and stop the whole in the family pocket-book." Many have become fascinated with diRcing down into mother earth. scattering seeds and watching them grow while the majority prefer fresh vegetables from their own back yard rather than the corner grocery. t Since home gardens have become so popular why not have one that produces beauty as well as provender for the family. In traveling over the country one may see beautiful home gardens laid off by landscape gardners, hut they can never excell the beauty of the gardens our grandmothers had with their flower beds on each side of the garden walk with those magni ficient old fashioned flowers; and sometimes at the end of the walk there would be the 'summer house covred with honey-suckle. Gardens like this require work and time, and an eye for beauty, but who wouldn't enjoy one? ? , Beautify the home and its surroundings. Make it a haven of rest for the eyes; a place where the soul may be fed upon nature's loveliness, and the body with the fruits of nature. Then the memories of the old home place will be to our children as happy and pleasant as the memories of tne nonte many ot us have lett. "Be Kind, to Dumb Animals Week" is April 12 to 18th.

Cady in Burlington News, j A-half the relishes I know Are palate disappointments, That fail to "work a cure" the .same As medicines and oinments; But, one there is that makes the test A-Iook exceedingly silly. And stands the tensest table test Tomater piccalilli. We always used the biggest bowl To chop the green tomaters; We cut 'em finer than they did A-cross at neighbor Slater's We'd chop til all our arms would ache, There ain't no chance to dilly, Or dally, once you start to make A crock of piccalilli. We salted 'em like sixty next And set 'em off for dreening; In the Valley Decision. in, Today you are at the cross-roads the crossroads of your future career.

FARMERS BANK & TRUST COMPANY Service and Safety; first HARDINSBURG, KENTUCKY HOW THE RABBIT BE- CAME EMBLEM OF EASTER The Easter rabbit or hare comes from Germany where Eas- ter is celebrated with almost as- much enthusiasm as Christmas In this country. There the children arc taught if they arc good and mind their parents, and are truth- ful and kind to one another, a white hare will steal into the house on Easter Eve, when every body is asleep, and secrete any number of gayly-colored eggs in the corners of the room. A search in the morning soon reveals a nest filled with Easter eggs. The association of the hare with Eas- ter springs from the latter's con- ncction with the moon. Inasrrtuch as. the date of Easter is dependent on the moon's phases, it is prac- tically a lunar holiday. From an- cicnt times the hare has been the symbol of the moon, many rca- sons for which have been given. The hare is a nocturnal animal and comes out at night to feed Both hare and moon were in former times thought to have the power of changing their sex, the new moon being masculine and the waning moon femine. Anoth- er reason for identifying the hare with the moon was the young are born with their eyes open unlike rabbits which are born blind. Another rcasdn fs that the name of the hare in Egyptian was "tin" meaning open. Now, the moon was the open-eyed watcher of the night, and the hare, born with his eyes open, was fabled never to close them. The substitution of the rabbit for the hare in America is easily understood- The hare is not indigenous to our forests, and by many persons the hare and rabbit are supposed to be iden tical. Selected. Both cullenders got busy quick, If you collect my meaning; By morning quarts of salty juice Had dript, which, willy-nilly, Got emptied out we had no use For brine in piccalilli. And then we cut the smarty things, The peppers, jest a-turning And that there Whitehouse radish root A-jest about as burning; And long before we had 'em chopped Our eyes got kinder filly, But jest the same, we never stopped We wanted piccalilli. A-next came in the cooking part, Which took the stove and kittle; We het it up to boiling point. Or jest beyond a little; And them we set it by to cool A-till 'twas middling chilly You've got to go right straight by rule Or lose your piccalilli. Then back inside the bowl it went To get them fixings firey, And sugar, cloyes and mustard seed A-saved by Aunt Almiry; And then come on the tasting act, I tell you what, 'twas thrilly The way the family lips a-smackt O'er perfect piccalilla. ' The vinegar was last to add. Which made it pickle proper; We always fetched the fullest cruse And me, I held the stopper; And then the one that poured it in Would hand the cruse to Willie; We each was handy as a pin A-making piccalilli. Great stuff that forms 'twixt food and taste, An appetizing isthmus; It's jest as good as it can be Before or after Christmas; How others feel, I may not know Perhaps you'll think it's silly, But as for me, I'd want to go It 'twa'n't for piccalilli.

But a few posts you see there stilL So oft I think of the happy days Spent at the dear old mill Fishing with a pin hook; Until our sacks withi minnows would fill.
