What is probably the smallest golf course in existence is to be found on the May, the rocky islet which lies on the north side of the mouth of the firth of Forth, some five miles south of Craill, on the coast of Fifeshire. The island is about a mile in length and two and ono-lialf furlongs in breadth and has a surface of rather more than 160 acres, but as a large part of it is unplayable for one reason or another the course consists of only three holes. To make the “round” it is necessary to play the course six times. The dis tance between the holes, however, is considerable, and the links are decid edly difficult of negotiation. The best score is said to be seventy.— Pearson’s Weekly. Not Used to Sleepers.

Barley and Beer It is estimated by the grain experts of the Chamber of Commerce, Milwaukee, that the barley crop of Wisconsin for 1912 was valued at $22,855,560. That is a pretty tidy sum, Being the best qual ity barley in the world, almost all of this grain went to the maltsters and was used in the manufacture of beer. Every farmer knows this demand establishes the high price of barley. With the malting plants out of business, barley could be used only for feed purposes and would have so low a value that no Wisconsin farmer could raise the crop at a profit. $22,855,560 for barley alone in one year in our own state! And this best barley in the world makes the finest beer in the world—pure and wholesome. Wisconsin Brewers’ Association Go Right At It! Friends and Neighbors in Edgerton Will Show You a Way.
