Applications for conversion nre now being received. While no intensive campaign to induce holders of the War Risk Act policies to transfer to tho new form of insurance has been launch ed as yet, applications are invited now in order to obviate a rush when the time arrives for trans fers to be made and also to en courago holders of the policies to make tho exchange when it is most convenient for them to do so. Tho Bureau has also made it known that it will not consider policies as having lapsed even though after discharge, a nun may have ceased payment or has noti fied tho Bureau that ho wishes to cancel his policy, until ample time has been granted for reinstatement.

Try it udy The Missouri Farm Flock Egg Laying Contest. Something different in tho way of an egg laying contest is being carried on in Missouri this year, where instead of having a few selected fowls competing agniiist tho selected best of other breeders ur.dor tho euro of an export, wholo flocks of lions on tho homo farm and under tho caro of their owners are matched against similar Hocks iu various other-parts-of tho- state. This is not only a contest to see which hens can lay tho most eggs, but is also a demonstration to show how proper management will increase tho egg production and the profitableness of the farm poultry flock. Favorablo weather and careful attention combined to givo the hens iu tho contest an unusual high egg production for March. The 14,478 lions in tho contest for this month laid a total of 20!), 457 eggs or an nverago of 15.5 eggs per linn. Tho White Rocks with an averogo production of 17 eggs per bird made tho best breed average for the month, but were closely pushed by tho White Leg horns with an average of 16.7 eggs and the White Wyandottes 1G.5 eggs. Tho highest individual flock re cord was made by 80 Brown Leg horn hens in Holt County, with an average of 21.0 eggs per hen. This flock was only a few eggs ahead of 75 White Wyandottes in Colo County with an average pro duction of 20.!) eggs per bird. Tho average income from eggs for each farm was $60.70 and. the average expense for feed $19.90, leaving a net return of $40.80 for each farm. In addition to the eggs listed in the above income, 97 farms set 2,145 dozen eggs during the nioiiili or an average of 265 eggs peffarm. Forty-five of the farms reported G,f,2 chicks on April first or an average of 138 chicks per farm. It is interesting to note that the $40.80 average profit for March exceeded by a considerable margin the average total profit of$29ll for tho four winter months. It is also noteworthy that the 33.5 eggs produced by the nverago lien in this contest between November firet and April first is more than half of the 65.5 eggs credited by the 1910 census as tho annual pro-, euction of tho average Missouri lieu. To Ford Owners Wo arc now prepared to over haul your Ford Motor with our latest type Service Station Equipment, (a Bearing Burning in and Running-in Machine.) By the old .scraping method it re quired 5 to 8 hours and after this has been done the actual bearing surface does not exceed 00 per cent. By the use of the Burn-ing-in Machine the work is done a great deal quicker and gives a 100 per cent Bearing surface all the -way across the Main and Connecting Rod Bearings. After the Bearings have been properly Buvned-in, the motor is assembled and placed in the Motor Test Stand where it is Run-in from the lineshaft until sufficiently limbered up to oper ate under its own power. While the motor is operated on its own power on the Test Stand all the Oil Leaks, Noisy Timing gear trouble, Magneto and Corbure tor trouble can be immediately detected and corrections be made on the Stand, eliminating the necessity of pulling the Motor from Chassis as has to be done when the Motor is put into the car before the final test is made. This is the System used by the Ford Motor Co. exclusive in all of their Service Stations. STANTON GARAGE FOHO AL'THOWX.ED SALES AND adv Service. Kor a Sprained Ankle.

Itlchnrd A drove his car swiftly along the road to Way Fells' pretty country station. "One mlnuto to make It In I I hopo he's n patient sort of fellow." lie was the prospective lnndscnpo gnrdner, whom Walter M , nn old friend, was sending down at Richard's request, nnd who was to begin work Immediately on the A 's country es tate. Walter M , an agricultural ex port, was a man to bo relied upon, nnd the A s had left the matter of selec tion wholly to blm. The result of their request had been a telegram, an nouncing that "Hobby G ," personal friend and expert," would arrive nt Way Fells on the afternoon express from the city. Tho train was just pulling out of the station when Richard stopped tho au tomobile at the curbing. There were only a few arrivals, as Way Fells con sists mostly of large country estates which arc reached more easily by mo tor than by train. A peddler with his pack, nn elderly gentleman, who was met by an enthusiastic party, a girl In brown, who carried a suitcase, and a fussy little woman with two fussier little children were the only passen gers to get off at Way Fells. Deciding that tho fellow must have lost his train, Richard was turning away again toward his car, when a sweet but hesitating voice caught his attention. It was the girl in brown talking to the freight agent. "Could you tell me," she was saying, "whether I could hire any sort of con veyance here to take me to Mr. Itlch nrd A 's estate 'Bellcmere,' I think It is called?" "Ah, some friend of mother's, prob ably," thought Richard. "Funny, though, she didn't. write, asking some one to meet her. I never saw her be fore, Hint's certain." "I beg your pardon," he said, ap proaching the girl. "I am Rlcliard A and I should be glad to take you up. Mother must have forgotten that you were coming. Is this your suitcase, Miss er er?" "Miss G . Roberta G ; but you are mistaken. Surely Mr. M must have written to say that I was coin ing, i am the landscape gardener whom Mrs. A asked Mr. M to send down here?" "Roberta G I Landscape garden er 1" cried Richard, "Why er To tell the truth, Miss G , I was expect ing n man, not a girl you sec, Mr. M called you 'Bobby In his tele gram." Richard's pet prejudice at that time was the fanneretto movement. Farm ing was a man's Job, he declared, and had better be left to their experienced hands, than to be indulged In as a whim by girls. In the days that followed she learn ed the true reason for his change of manner, and could not help being some what amused over his absurd preju dice. Mrs. A , on the contrary, was for more cordial, and nt the end of two weeks, wns calling her Roberta, and asking her advice on various mat ters. Tho men who worked on the es tate admired her from the start; first, because she was young and attractive, but gradually, through respect for her trained and thorough knowledge of the work she had fitted herself to do. Richard's manner was still the same, although he was necessarily brought into close companionship with her, for Mrs. A preferred thnt her son should manage all details of the estate. When Roberta had been nt Belle mere for almost a month word was brought to tho house by one of the workmen that Miss G had been thrown from her horse nenr the out skirts of tho estate almost a mllo away. Mrs. A was very much alarm ed and sent her son back with tho workman at once. Richard took the little car and has tened to reach the spot where the ac cident occurred. As he neared tho scene he reproached himself for the unnecessary coolness with which he had treated Roberta. The white face, half turned to the ground, rebuked him far more than his conscience for his past actions. Rich ard drove slowly to avoid giving her unnecessary pain, but before they had gone far a rut In the road Jolted the car quite heavily and Roberta opened her eyes, wincing nt tho pain. She could not remember nt first what hud happened, nnd tried to raise herself to an erect position, but her right arm fell bnclc limply when die tried to ex tend It. "My arm," she said weakly. "I must have broken It. The horse fell and " "Yes, I know," answered Richard; "but you mustn't try to talk now. I'm so sorry you were hurt, nnd It Is more than half my fault, top." "You mustn't say that," she said, "because It's not true." "But it Is true, and so Is tho rest of It. Do you suppose you cotild ever for give me, Bobby, dear?" "I think I could try," she replied, and a faint color camo Into her face at the last words. "Because, you see", I know now that I was wrong; but more than that, be cause I want you nlwnys for my own, little Bobby." The landscape gardener smiled, but It was n very tender little smile, nnd Richard appreciated It as he realized the courage It took to smllo when she was almost on the verge of crying with Wfr. - ' & W, LAMIilG, M.
