The old plan of sending music and speeches to many families over the wire telephone was a failure because each additional receiver that was taken down reduced the force 6t the message and it soon reached such a limit that none of the listeners could hear distinctly.

Plant and cultivate about like sugar beets. T3 The Danish sludstrup is a mangel of rich yellow color, yields heavy, easy to pull and is very rich in food values. The Klien Wanzlehen is a sugar beet and one of the best in the world, a heavy yielder and good for stock, being rich in sugar. ' The giant rose half sugar beet yields the heaviest of gny but the mangel wurzel and is very rich in sugar. It grows partly above the ground and Is a good crop to store tor winter feed, being smooth, hard and a good keeper. We have all these seeds in bulk and nqjv is the time to secure and plant them. It pays to get good seed, and It pays to keep the stock fed on a • mixed ration for the same reason that a family do better with a variety of food than when con fined to bread and water. Fisher Commission Co. t the wireless telephone they do not have this difficulty. The wireless radio telegraph is sent by dots and dashes and one has to learn the code before they cn get the message as It is spelled. Mr. Dolman said the manufacture of equipment for handling the wire les phone mesages is quite an in dustry and bids fair to spread its goods over the nation with great rapidity. It is a study that every body seems to be engaging in, to catch the messages filling the air in which they live. When a bunch of people are found together talking about something it is a safe guess that it is radio they are talking about—some phase of it is being told by one or several or all of them as fast as they can get a hearing, and radio outfits are favorite articles for dressing show windows. Bunches of people stand in front of them nearly all the time talking radio, taking turns telling what they have or what they are making or how the one worked that they put in and what they .beard on it. They never eeem to tire of the subject, and, to use the words of the street, they are "plumb crazy over it." Protn a business standpoint Mr. Dolman says the country seems to have passed the peak of hard times and is facing an era of slow recovery with the speed likely to be incresed as it goes alohg. Stocks of goods are said to be rather low thruout the country and very low in many re spects. Factories are likely to op erate in a conservative way for a while and only when demand gets quite strong are they likely to launch out freely. He says the master minds of the country as he hears it, are all pretty well agreed that recovery from hard times de pends absolutely upon production— : production of everything that makes up the sum total of civilization, and if anybody can tell how slow produc tion is going to be, that will explain how slow the recovery from hard times will be. He said that he and his family enjoyed their trip greatly and he came back rested and feeling fine. He had not had a vacation for a long time and had worked longer hours than a man ought to if he is to keep his health. City Cleaner Now Than Ever Before Continued from page one symptoms laet year at clean up time, but this spring they broke out all over with itchings for clean yards, both front and back, and for clean streets and alleys. Even the wood is piled up straight this spring in stead of being thrown into a heap when chopped and left so. There are more neat looking chicken yards this spring and less of fringes on the outbuildings where grass grew and was never removed carefully— fringes that start a fire so easily— they are missing now, just as if the family had decided to reduce the fire menace. A great deal of the trash that has disappeared from rear lots wds a fire menace, some of it lying for several years where It might easily set a building afiire by merely having a spark dropped in the right place. Gone is the trash, and the fire risk from most of these places. A good many people have done something this spring which they had neglected to do for years—they took the leaves off of the "valley" in the shingle roof, where they ac cumulate and decay, rotting the shingles under them. A good many of the young folks have practiced climbing this spring, in the direction of rotting leaves on the roof, and have cleaned them oft. That not only removes a fire risk, but saves decay and loss of shingles and loss inside the house by leaking that spoils plaster, paper and tinted walls. Old Tinier Talks A man who is an observant old timer says that whenever people be gin taking an interest in the roofs of their houses, they begin to see that the shingles dry out, lose their paint and curl, and then they see the need of paint as a preserver of the whole house and they get to using paint brushes and paint on the roof. This old man was once something of a sailor and he says that a sea captain says that to have a clean deck is to have a clean ship, so when he has. the decks well washed, the cleanup naturally, spreads to the whole boat. With a land lubber, he sayc, when a family begin to take care of the roof of their house they protect all that is below it, and it runs to painting and preserving what is already built and a house with a good roof Is a compliment to its owners. It looks good and is good, and they don't stop at the roof; for when they can afford some more work and paint, they paint the porch and the window sills and casings, and the screen door and finally the whole house and it makes for good appearance, good economy and fon comfort and satis faction not only* with the family, but with the neighbors. School Property Cleaned The schools have been busy put ting their real estate In order and It is a credit to the management and to the workers. Well kept school property bespeaks a spirit of com munity pride and it spreads. If school property is not well kept, it spreads gloom and slovenliness to the homes. It is like the cat that gets too trifling to lick itself— everybody avoids it and it gets so it seems to hate itself. There is no surer way to destroy school Interest than to let the school property run down at the heel., A good deal of money has been spent to make good entrances to the town of Blackfoot and about the worst trash and disorder looms up at the Broadway entrnce. Tourists will be impressed by it and it will he a fire risk and a weed menace if not removed. a Ditch Companies Surprised Ditch companies having ditches running thru town long ago gave up getting the adjacent residents to take leaves out of the ditch. The leaves fell from the trees belonging to Smith and Jones, for example, but the moment the leaves got into the ditch, Smith and Jones disowned them and left them for the ditch owners to take out at their own pense. Smith and Jonps might be stockholders in that same ditch, and they might have more time than money, but in spite of all logic, they would wait till tfie ditch company hired men to clean out the ditch, then an assessment would be levied on Smith and Jones and the others, the money would have to be paid in to the ditch treasurer and then paid to the workmen, and in that way the owners of the trees, and the ditch, worked it aroiind so that the ditch company hacP to do some work that by right should have been done di rectly by the owners of the trees that shed the leaves that fell In the ditch that lay thru the town that Jack built. ex A Popular Holdup Last year there was considerable complaint because the ditch com Hie Brown-Hart Co. ■ 'The Home of Popular Prices" National Gingham Week April 24 to 29 Women all over the country are finding more uses every day for ginghams.

People said the ditch companies ought to be made to do it. People said the town ought to do it for the ditch companies, but after all, the cost of It all had to be paid by the dear people,' Including the cost of overseers to see that the workmen worked at the times and at the placea directed. Smith, for example, left half a ton of his own leaves in his own ditch and refused to take them away becuse they were In the ditch. So the ditch company hired a superintendent, and he hired some men, and then he hired a straw boss to work along with one of the gangs of workers, and they went down the line and cleaned Smith's leaves out the main ditch that Smith gets his water from, and if the men are seen loafing on the job or fooling away their time, Smith thinks that is a pretty good joke on the ditch com pany, the way those fellows fool away their time. The next week per haps, he gets an assessment notice and he wonders why in the dickens it is so much. He remembers that in the old days the assessment was hot so much, hut he sees no connection between the half ton of leaves in his section and the tons and tons all along the line, and the big assess ment on his shares of stock in the ditch. Getting a Wholesome View Some day the residents are going to see things clearly instead of thru a glass darkly. They will not draw the lines so fine as they have been doing, but will skirmish all about to get the leaves that fell from their trees whether they are on the top of the house or in bottom of the ditch. They will be rounded up directly without any waiting or hiring or fir ing or superintending or straw-boss ing or paying of assessments. The delivery of water for gardens and lawns has been greatly delayed at times by the fact that leaves in the ditch cannot be cleaned out until men can be hired to do It. When people get to looking after their own leaves regardless of where they are, the burden of cleaning ditches by the use of hired men wll lapproach the vanishing point. * Why the Clean Town Blackfoot is a well cleaned town this spring—not a spotless town ex actly, but it may easily become so now, for the bulk of the work is done. We don't know whether peo ple have cleaned up because it is hard times and there is less to do making money or whether they just naturally like to have things clean. It may be that we have cleaned up the town so It will look attractive to the tourists coming up the line. It may be that we have done the clean ing so It will look good the Fourth of July or at fair time; It may he that we have done the job because we remember that the teachers' In stitute Is going to fill th town with teachers again next fall, or it may be just for the joy. of working. + MRS.
