"1 began chewing some years ago," said one, "and I soon found that it is the only way to get the benefit of ail the rich juices stored up by nature in the tobacco leaf. I refer, of course, to the plug form of tobacco, which is the most natural and the cleanest form. "Chewing good tobacco like Spear Head makes the salivary gland active, which in turn has a beneficial effect on the whole system. Add to this the sweet, mellow, delicious flavor of a chew of Spear Head, and you have the highest possible degree of tobacco satisfaction. "I mention Spear Head because I have found that this brand is exception ally pure, being made in a factory that's run strictly according to pure food rules." Spear Head is made of sun-ripened Burley, which is acknowledged to be the richest, mildest, finest flavored to bacco leaf in the world, produced by the latest processes, which develop the quality and luscious flavor of the choice Burley to the supreme de gree. A chew of Spear Head has a whole some relish that is not found in any other chewing tobacco. Try a 5c 10c cut.

The first month the Holstein men rather felt they had the best of it, and it appears some of them felt a little too sure. In the second month the Jerseys came in for a bigger share of the honors, but evidently not enough to put the Holstein men on their mettle. The third month (De cember) C. E. Long with his seven Jerseys carried off enough of the honors to show the Holstein owners that Jerseys can do good work in Twin Falls county. Mr. Long's herd captured first place in herd average and in the individual cow record, he can claim the second and third prizes. The cow giving the greatest amount of butter-fat for the month was a grade Holstein owned by A. A. Stauff acher. She gave 69.6 pounds, which by the way but makes her high cow for December, but puts her in first place, as the cow giving the out ter-fat in any month. It is also in teresting to note that she is only a grade. This is the first time a grade cow has been able to win the blue ribbon. Some of the men who have a desk full of pedigrees would do well to look to their laurels. Another inter esting circumstance is that a large per cent, of the cows making the hon or roll are to be found on the farms as the silos. Here are the figures: October, 25 cows on farms with Another feature November, 24 cows on farms with silo, 18 on farms without. December, 32 cows on farms' with silo, 19 on farms without. It is probable that most of the silos were not opened in October, but the point is that the silos and the best herds are on the same farms, average. best herds have no silage, but most of their owners are giving the silo seri ous consideration, worthy of note is that of the 10 cows which were on the honor roll for all three months, seven are being fed silage. It appears that the silage must have some good effects on the yields of these cows. While considering testing associa tions. it might be well to note the re sults obtained in seven herds in the first association organized in the Unit ed States, and which is still in oper ation. The first year 1906 the cows eraged 231.1 pounds butter-fat, which yielded $22.23 more than cost of feed. The last year's record available (1913) was 284.7, giving returns over cost of feed of $51.08. cows had been disposed of. will keep a boarder cow if he knows It, and the testing association is one of the best means of knowing.

STRIKE AT YOUNGSTOWN IS DECLARED Off State Mediator is Successful in End ing Strike. Will Attempt to Adjust Other Trouble. YOUNGSTOWN, O.—Fred Croxton, state mediator, announced Tuesday night that the strike of tube workers at the plant of the Youngstown Sheet & Tube company had been declared off.

Rockefeller, in a telegram received late Tuesday, denied charges made by Thomas H. Flynn, general organizer of the American Federation of Labor that the Rockefeller inter ests were in any way interested in the proposed merger of big, independent steel interests or were responsible for the rioting in East Youngstown last Friday. Mr. Flynn had charged that the riot was part of a scheme to depress the value of stock of the Youngstown Sheet & Tube company, so that con trol could be obtained and a merger affected with several other companies in which the Colorado Fuel & Iron company was to be included. When the telegram was received, Mr. Flynn at once replied that he would, if Mr. Rockefeller desired, submit to him the source of his information.

He has received assurances from all sides that he will be given staunch support. Mr. Van Deusen is the first Democrat to announce his in tention of running for the nomination to state office.
