"It is immaterial as to which par. ty a man belongs, he should hear all . sides of the tax question." "25 to 40 per cent of the taxes are delinquent on the books which j means that 25 to 40 per cent of the , people cannot meet their bills—35 per cent are delinquent this year, or $300,000.00 worth of taxes were on the delinquent list when the last day to pay wa s past."

LUTHERAN CHURCH (Firth) Remember the Sunday School, it meets at 10 a. m. There will he no services in the morning but in the evening at 8 o'clock We hope to have a good at tendance from now on as we did last Sunday. Come and hear the Word of Life. The District meeting in both Blackfoot and Firth was a success. The true gospel of repentance was the keynote at all the services. This is not the popular message of today but it is the most needed message. The world is crying out, "What Must I Do to be Saved?", and the Christian church must come with the only true answer; "Believe in Hhe Lord Jesus Christ and thou shaft Ibe saved." But before there can be any real ifaith in Jesus Christ there must be repentance.

The busy lion is the one that lays the most eggs. The .'cod is of as much importance P; the breed. With proper care and food come plenty of eggs. Remember, that "anything worth doing at all is worth doing well." Variety in rations i, s one of the most important things connected with good feeding. Sometimes even a faulty ration will give fair re sults because of the variety that enters into it. Don't expect the fowls to find grit ifor themselves. No matter how much range they may have it is best to keep grit, charcoaj, oys ter shells, etc., constantly before them. Apoplexy and egg-lbound are al most always the results of excessive fatness among the hens. Don't feed any more mash at one time than the fowls will eat up per fectly clean. To allow more is not dnly wasteful, but promotes unsan itary conditions. Generally two-year-old hens and cock 8 make the best breeders. Or, pullets should be mated to well sea soned cock birds and young cock erels fihould be mated to weil ma tured hens. Always balance youth on the one side with wejl seasoned stoick on the other side. Don't feed dry grains alone to your hens unless you want them to become too fat, and always make them scratch for all grain feed by throwing it in a deep litter. Over-crowding causes many los ses and disappointments with poul try. If you have room for only fifty fowls you will make more mon ey from that small flock thain from twice as many fowls crowded into the same space. Weed out every thing but tihe best. This policy not only prevents over-crowding but nl so mises the excellence of (he en tire flock. In selecting males for breeding, never give the preference to size alone, as size may he due to fat and idleness. Tt is better to select a male that is active and of medium size. Observation will enable you to make a selection without diffi culty, but many persons are so par tial to large males that they often sacrifice other interests that would prove more valuable in the end.— Farm Life. musty ALL-STATE HOOP TEAM PICKED.
