Doing Things
Differently 1
If only the Criswells were content
to live according to conventional rule
existence doubtless would bo much
smoother for them Also for others
It principally is others who rebel
against the Criswells cheerfully ec
centric method of conducting them
selves their household and their af
fairs in general because when things
go wrong the Criswells are never
botjiered nor upset having a childlike
and joyous Interest in whatever Is un
When a couple who have been mar
ried eight years get energetic enough
to go to a ball the usual method of
procedure after the dance is over is
for the masculine member to yawn
mutter wearily that he has to get up
at seven in the morning just the same
and why the dickens doesnt the taxi
get them home faster while hjs wife
says her head aches and somebody
elses gown was far prettierthanhers
and oh my but she is sleepy y
Not the Criswells however When
they reached their home shelter at
two oclock the other morning after
dancing since nine they surveyed one
another meditatively
Im starved said Mrs Criswell
Som I agreed Criswell
With one accord they made for the
kitchen When the light was switched
on anddisclosed a disguised and
startled mouse scurrying wildly for
shelter Mrs Criswell did not faint
Both she and her husband gurgled
Joyously She grabbed a broom Cris
well seized the poker
Probablythere is some costume ap
propriate for the pastime of killing
mice but whatever it may be it assured
ly is not trailing lavender satin and a
brand new dress suit Still the con
sciousness that they were inappropri
ately clothed had no deterring effect
on the Criswells A boiler factory in
full action was the only thing that
possibly could have mademore noise
than did they with broom poker over
turned chairs and falling dlshpans
Finally the intrude was dls
patohed and swept outdoors the Cris
wells repaired personal damages and
once more attempted a frugal lunch
They got It with some minor mishaps
Criswell knocked over a Jar of pre
serves and his wife In pulling out the
silver drawer pulled it too far spilling
a peck or so of table implements all
over the hardwood floor Still they
laughed so much that their troubles
more than paid for themselves
Just as Criswell pushed hlsj chair
hack from the table a joint of light
glittered at hlni from the library
Diving toward it he quickly emerged
with a large toy engine in his hands
Elmer said his wife T hate to
appear inquisitive but would you
mind telling me if you have quite lost
your senses Have you still at this
hour of the night such an insatiable
thirst for amusement that you have to
fall back on Tommys toy engine
Isnt a dinner party a dance a mouse
killing bee and a supper enough
Thats all right Minnie said
Criswell soothingly You know
youre Just as crazy over this fool
thing as I am and Its never worked
right since Tommy got it Christmas
and I dont know of a better time to
fix it
The engine was an affair run by
gas so the Criswells with much labor
got It attached to the gas fixture
Then on hands and knees they
watched it plunge madly across the
hardwood floor chugging in a very
businesslike manner It was while
they were thus occupied that a noise
interrupted them Raising their heads
from their absorbing occupation they
saw enter what Mrs Criswell after
ward said was the biggest policeman
she had ever In all her life beheld Be
hind was a policeman still bigger
who in turn was trailed by the biggest
policeman ot all They regarded the
two persons in evening garb with sus
Whatchu doln here demanded
the biggest policeman
Even the Criswells could see how
foolish and inadequate it sounded to
explain that they were running a
childs toy engine at three oclock In
the morning That was why they
were meek when they had to explain
the mousekilling in the kitchen and
the crash of silver In the diningroom
and why they insisted piteously in
stead of wrathfully that they lived
there and had a right to run toy en
gines In the middle of the night If
they wanted to It was not till Nora
and Mary the maids who roused
from slumber by the weird noises
downstairs had telephoned the police
station that there were burglars in
the house and their employers were
out peered in timorously that the
Criswells finally cleared themselves
of suspicion
We convinced those policemen
that we werent burglars Mrs Cris
well says but nothing In a thousand
years ever will convince them that we
arent lunatics and dangerous ones
at that
I dont care says Criswell com
fortably I think it was a very pleas
ant evening

In the Corn Club Movement Report
of the Meeting Held Saturday
Afternoon In the City Hall
The Anderson County Boys Corn
Club met at the city hall on Saturday
afternoon March 5 Mr W F Proc
tor special government agent for this
part of Texas addressed the boys on
how to plant and cultivate their corn
He said the ground should be well
Broken and harrowed at least once
two or three times is better and then
fertilized well with lot manure if suf
ficient can be had if not a high
grade commercial fertilizer should be
used say two to four hundred pounds
per acre mixed well with the soil lie
fore planting Two hundred pounds
of cotton seed meal and one hundred
pounds oxacid phosphate mixed well
give the best results on the average
uplands The planting seed should be
the very best type of local corn grown
in Anderson county The rows on up
lands should be from five to 7 feet
apart and left about 20 inches in the
drill The plat should be harrowed
just as the corn is coming up and
then if desired the first cultivation
after the harrowing should be some
deeper that it will stir the soil down
say tlnee inches and later it should
be cultivated very shallow with
sweeps or spring tooth harrows or
weeders Go over it every eight or
ten days When the corn is about
three feet high it should have a side
application of cotton seed meal of at
least one hundred pounds per acre
He then told the boys of other boys
wiio raised last year on one acre of
corn moie than their fathers did on
ten times the land
Then Mr Sterne on behalf of the
Board of Trade read the rules adopt
ed by the Board to govern the distri
bution of prizes He stated that the
Board of Trade had selected for one
piize a sold gold Waltham watch on
exhibition in the show window at the
Kolstad Jewelry Store a fine Win
chester rifle also on exhibition and
later a list of prizes will be published
including suits of clothes and various
valuable ai tides contributed by mer
chants and business men This pait
of the woik is not yet completed but
they expect to have about twenty
piizes Mr Bratton of the Bratton
Drug company was present and stated
that he would give 2500 in gold Mr
Geo A Wright said he would mix
fertilizer for every boy according to
whatever formula he desired and wait
until the ciop was made next fall
giving him the benefit of the lowest
cash pi ice without interest and the
boy who receives a prize shall have
his fertilizer free Mr Pioctor then
added that the Bankers Association
of the state of Texas orfers the boy
who receives first prize at theDallas
