Not the simple life is the simpleton Ufe. The latter is usually expensive. A woman seldom dresses to pleas« her husband—unless she pays the bills. Stop worrying about the sorrows o t yesterday and go after the Joys of to day. When you talk louder than the other fellow It's a sign you're wrong and he's right. As a rule when a man begins to look for trouble he overestimates his ca pacity. Every man Is as old as he feels, but he should try to look younger to pleas« his wife. Every woman has a certain look with which she thinks she can squelch a man. Getting Into trouble Is generally ex pensive, hut some people Just will have expensive things. Poetry of love is transformed Into prose when matrimony reaches the paregoric stage. If a bad habit hasn't killed a man by the time he Is seventy-five, he la pretty sure it won't. The halo a man sees on a girl's head during courtship develops into a bon net after marriage. So many people are Imposed on be cause they fear they may be entertain ing an angel unawares. Any man who can keep his um brellas In the right place has the faculty of saving money, i . No one now offers any moralising on the blessings of poverty. It la called "the simple life." If there Is such a thing as a perfect woman It must be one who Is able to conceal her Imperfections. MADE WISE CHOICE OF WIFE John Brown's Helpmate Apparently Ideal Woman for a Man of HIs Stern Dlaposition. John Brown, prhose body later on lay "a-moldering In the grave," once described the lady who afterward be came l)ls wife as a "remarkably plain but neat, Industrious and economical girl." These latter virtues seem to have atoned for her want of physical charm, for he and Dlanthe Lusk were married when she was nineteen and he was only twenty. Dlanthe was a strong-minded wom an, but she made John an excellent wife, and their twelve years of mar ried life—termlnatel by her early death—were most happy. He was a man of decided and violent disposi tion, and his wife is said to have pos sessed the faculty of getting him to do as she wished and causing him to believe that It was his Idea all along. She died In 1832, twelve years after their marriage and Just after the birth of their seventh child. Averting Suspicion. "Some of your constituents are crit icising your English."

GRASSHOPPERS BEING CON TROLLED WITH POISON BAIT The grasshoppers are very numer ous in many parts of the county. Com munications with the dry farm sec tions reveal the fact that the hoppers are present in great numbers. Steps have been taken to poison them with bran mash and good results are being obtained. In sections where the small hoppers continue to hatch over a period of a number of days it Is necessary to spread poison twice on the same field The poison should be spread while the hoppers are small, before they begin to fly. Twenty-five pounds of poisoned mash will cover five acres of land and should he mixed as fol lows: Wheat bran ...........25 lbs. White Arsenic .......1 lb. Cheap molasses.....2 qts. Amyl Acetate ..............3-1 oz. Water ....................3-4 gal. Mix the bran and Arsenic dry. Stir the molasses Into two gallons of water Add the Amyl Acetate and then pour the liquid over the dry mixture. Add enough water so that when a hand full is squeezed firmly only a few drops of water will ooze out. Care should be taken not to get the mash too wet. If the hoppers are destroying your crops, or seem to be thick on the gro und you should take steps at once to control them. When they get their wings and begin to travel they will consume the crops much more rap idly.

SHORT COURSE OFFERED IN THE UNIVERSITY There Is no longer any doubt that education in agriculture pays big div idends. The business of fanning has become so complicated that the man without training in up-to-date meth ods is placed In a very disadvantag eous position. Men who are not pre pared to farm are even now being forced to seek employment in the city Competition In the work which they enter is between brawn rather than brains. The fanner of the future must be so trained that he can use his head as well as his hands. He must be familiar with the best meth ods of producing crops and animals and of the most economical means of disposing of the product. Recognizing the fact that the farm er has very little time in which to acquire the technical knowledge needed In his work, the College of Agriculture has established the School of Practical Agriculture, the principal aim of which is to provide effective training for the man on the farm ut a season when he can best take advantage of it. The school year extends from the middle of October to the middle of March, the slack season on the farm. Prospective stu dents should be sixteen years of age or older and graduates of the eighth grade. The full course covers three winter terms of five months each and includes practical work In animal hus bandry, field crops, farm machinery and motors, dairy husbandry, horti culture, poultry husbandry,etc. Any young men Interested In this course should write to F. E. Arm strong. Principal , school of Prac tical Agriculture, Moscow, Idaho, for a copy of the announcement and fur ther details. LUTHERAN CHURCH. (Blackfoot) Sunday School at 10 a. m.
