COMPANY The Best Place to Trade After All EDGERTON, WISCONSIN Wisconsin Tobacco Reporter Edgerton - Wisconsin D G. RISTAD - Publisher FRIDAY, DECEMBER 8, 1922 The Pool Tobacco Grading. The following announcement of how the Pool will grade tobacco on the farms is given out by the Pool head quarters : At first it seemed to be quite a prob lem to arrive at some plan that would enable the Pool to settle with the farm er on an equitable basis. Considerable time and study was given to this phase of the Pool work by C. A. Hoen and John Holtan, and finally the following plan was adopted. There is no doubt but that it will be more just than the plan that has been used in the past. This Grading Plan is as follows: Two men will be sent out to draw samples from every 3rd, 4th or sth bun dle. The farmer owning the crop must be present when samples are drawn. If the farmer has some late tobacco, hail-cut tobacco, or, in other words, different classes of tobacco, a notation will be made of the number of bundles of each type that he possesses. A cer tain number of bundles will be weighed in order to arrive at the approximate weight of the crop. These samples, wl.en drawn, will be placed in a regular bundling box and wrapped in paper. A tag with the contract uumber of the pool-member will be tied to this bundle of samples. This bundle of samples will then be taken to the warehouse where an ex perienced sorter will sort it in the reg ular way. The weights of the different sizes will be taken, the weights of rags and fillers will be taken in order to ar rive at the percentage of each in this certain crop of tobacco. When the sorter is through, this bundle of sample tobacco will have a card attached show ing the percentage of each size, the percentage cleaned out, and also the remarks of the man grading the sample as to his opinion of how the tobacco was put up on the farm. The grader then comes, and with this information before him he places this crop in one of four grades. The grad er, after consulting the card attached to the bundle of samples, must be guided by the quality of the tobacco. He does not know the farmer who raised the tobacco. The only identifica tion of the crop at this time is the con tract number. The facts are before him and he must judge. In case the farmer is not satisfied with the grade in which his tobacco is placed, he notifies the headquarters at Madison and another grader is sent out to draw samples. If the grade remains the same as before, the farmer must stand the expense, but if the grade is changed the pool must stand the ex pense. For Sale— House with lot and a half on Rollin street.

MALE BIRDS MOST GORGEOUS Females Less Showy Because Nature Knew They Had the Greater Need for Protection. i Speaking of classes of birds, includ- I ing, for instance, the bullfinch, in which the plumage of the male is more i brilliant than that of the female. E. Kay Robinson, president of the Brit- j ish Empire Naturalists’ association, j says that in nature it is always the male who has more decoration and a ! louder voice. This is because the male I is of comparatively little value, says . Mr. Robinson. It does not matter a great deal whether the male is discov ered and killed or not, because there is always another bird to take his place at the head of the family. The female and the young are more impor tant. The reason why the breast of a bird is the place where nature always seems to put color is that when a male bird takes its turn on the nest crouch ing over the eggs its breast cannot be seen. Young brown owls and other birds of prey, Mr. Robinson explains, are always covered with gray fluff. When the mother bird brings home some animal, usually bleeding, and tears it to pieces, giving each little bird a joint of raw flesh, they make themselves in a great mess. The suit of fluff, according to Mr. Robinson, is really an overall to protect the grow ing feathers underneath. As soon as the young bird leaves the nest the fluff, which has gradually become loose, is shaken off. The Origin of Salt. The geologist Suess holds the source of the sea salt was volcanic eruptions, when the earth’s crust was beginning to harden it. Eruptions, he says, give forth gaseous compounds containing chlorine, which is brought down by rain.

Ladies’ Slippers $1.25 to $1.85 Children’s Slippers SI.OO to $1.45 Love of Praise. The love of praise is generally con nected with all tfie finer sensibilities of human nature. To be entirely'des titute of all this passion betokens an ignoble mind, on which no moral im pression is easily made; for where there is no desire of praise, there will be no sense of reproach. But while it is admitted to be a natural and, in many respects, a useful principle of action, it is entitled to no more than our secondary regard. It has its boun dary set, by transgressing which it is at once transformed from an innocent into a most dangerous passion. When passing its natural line, it becomes the ruling spirit of conduct; when the re gard we pay to the opinions of men encroaches on that reverence which we owe to the voice of conscience and the sense of duty, the love of praise, having then gone out of its proper place, instead of elevating, debases.— Doctor Smith. I Foiling the Check Forger. 4- branch of crime that causes great loss to business men is check forgery. By the use of bleaching acids, ink eradicators and “penning,” checks made out for, say, sl6, have been al tered to $1,600, and cashed for this amount. When such a swindle occurs, the bank concerned is not responsible for the loss unless the actual signature has been forged. The only method of preventing these crimes is the use of the patent check-writer, of which there are about fifty thousand in use. The machine “shreds” the words and fig ures into the check. Acid-proof ink in two colors is used and a check would have to be destroyed before any alter ation could be made. The Morris-Dancers. In England, in medieval times, the Christian feast of Penticost absorbed one of the summer festivals of the pagan inhabitants of western Europe. It was commonly celebrated in all parts of the country by what was termed the Whitsun-ale, and it was a great time for the Morris-dancers, Antiquaries seem agreed that the old English Morris-dance, so great a favor ite in the Sixteenth century, and still used, was derived through Spain from thp Moors, and that its name in Span ish, “Morisco,” a Moor, was taken from this circumstance.

The good saint is said to have been a shoemaker who made shoes for the poor out of leather supplied him by an angel, and he gave them away gratis in spite of the fact that they were manufactured from ex tra quality heaven-made leather, im ported exclusively for his patrons.
