A concrete hilo Ih the heat and cheapest in the long run, and no dairy iH complete without a Kilo Mr. Marluegs algo hag a very promising cotton crop, lie hag gpnced his cotton thick and it cer tainly looks like he is going to make gome cotton. 1 tell you the thick spaced cotton is showing up best this year. I visited in the Octoc communi ty and inquired about what sue cons were the people having with their turkeys. I heard everywhere tales of woe I asked some of them finally what kind of succors Mr. Arthur Kentmid was having, and they said lie seem to be having better luck than than they were. 1 recalled that Mi. Kennurd,had been having good luck every since 1 have been hero. I kinder have a feeling that it is not luck all together with Mr. Keiniard. and I advise turkey raisers that have nut been success ful to go to Mr, Keuiiard and talk the matter over with him. 1 Imd a very pleasant visit the other dav in the home of Mr. and Mrs. C. K. Uartness. They are raising turkeys with some method, Mrs. Marinese is a splendid repre senfative of our great woman's college at Columbus, and Mr. Martness appreciates his good tor tune. Mr. liarluess has fenced in about an acre of ground, mostly tree* and thick undergrowth, with about alO it fence. They haye laid barrels down tor nests and had their turkeys lay and hatch iu this enclosure. They have also built houses to protect the little poults from bad weather. You will per haps say this will not work, hut you ought to see the turkeys they are raising. They have over fifty youug turkeys and about half of them are so large that we common' v regard them as being out of danger. 1 am ready to agree that a five-acre enclosure might be better. They have alreuny turned the oldest poults out at large and will turn the others out as soon as they are big enough. I think that Mrs. ilurtness is using her bueiletin right regularly and I am very much interested iu the results she is getting I am just iu receipt of the res turns from a shipment of cattle and am giving some of the prices received lor your information, best steers brought 50,25 a hun dred, best cows iH.St), best bulls 54.2 i. worst cowsS2 of), skim milk calves Sd, The cost of shipping was about Goc a hundred, but when you take into consideration the shrink, it would be ut least 7oc. I have Just received anew sup* ply of the new Farmeis’ bulletin No, 1211 “Home Canning of Fruits and Vegetables,” All of the aO' cumulated knowledge of canning is brought up to date iu this bul - letin 1 thiuk that every family should make immediate application or one of these bulletins. 1 have talked canning to the ladies on a good many occasions in the different counties 1 have served. I have two questions that 1 ask them about canning. 1 Why do you cook fruits and vegetables before canning? 2. Why do you seal them iu air tigut containers after cooking? The usual answer I get is to keep them from s-poiliug and it is only rarely that I gel the correct answer given below. 1. To kill the'germs, organ isuu, or bacteriaVhat cause deeav. -■ They 'would be rtiofeclfcii i ffom tlie mt witu"'lhb organism. s' that cause decay if they were-' uot sealed. With the above knowledge it. mtud it is easy to see why it is’bf ic ier to cook fruit or vegetables in the containers rather than in in' open vessel and pour them iu the |container*, us v>n always run the risk of getting them reinfected bv pooling them through the air, I hope none of the woman of this county are using Canning acid In the first place it is an admission that other folks have more ability to can fruit and vegetables than you have. The Government ex part* have been demonstrating canning without acid and thou sands of farm women have been practicing it fora numberot Years. Then it is not healthy. This acid is a great germacide, It will kill the germs that cause decay and then when its gets in the stomach it will lull a lot of bacteria that perform a useful function in the process of digestion. The locomotive engineer has a schedule to make; he runs his train on a minute schedule; he has the) right-of-way on his tracK; he is not expected to look out for auto ists and “slow up’’ or stop his train for them, it would paralyze the whole schedule system of the road if he was to. The nutoist is traveling on his own schedule: he may be in a hurry, but the loco motive engineer is in a greater hurry, Therefore, when ton come to a crossing, “Stop, Look and Listen.” Always do this and it will prevent many ot the horrible disasleis that we read of every day.

To all Illinois Central System Shopmen; On June 14 I addressed a eoramus nication to you in which I appealed to you to cast your vote against the proposed strike. Since that time the strike has been called by your lead ers, and some of you have left your positions, while others have femeined steadfast. I feel that the time has arrived when I should make clear to those of you who have left your positions, as well as those of you who have remained, the position of the Illinois Central System with reference to this en tire matter. In mv letter to volt of June 14, I enumerated the three things which vour leaders proposed to have you strike against, namely: (1) con tracting of shop plants to outsid ers, (2) the order of the United States Railroad Labor Board re lating to rales and working con ditions, and (3) the order of the United States Railroad Labor Board establishing rates of pay effective July 1.- The question of contracting shops to outsiders is not a part of the controversy so far as you and the management ot the Illinois Central System are concerned, be cause this railway system has not contracted any of its shops to out siders. The question involved iu the matter ot rules and working conditions and the order of estab lishing rates of pay effective July 1 are the only ones at issue. They are not questions between you and the Illinois central management, They were decided by the United States Railroad Labor Board and those of you who are nut on a strike are striking against lawful decisions of a branch ofthe United States Government. Ii goes without saying that the public welfare cannot permit the re revocation of a decision of a gov ernmental agency under a threat of the use of force. No patriotic citizen would expect such a thing to ho done, or would have it done. We believe that we have the best government in the world, but you will all agree with me that it would not long so remain if its institu tions could be over-ridden and set July ipaa Hourly Kutes Machinists. IJoiler Makers & lllaclisiniths 70c Helpers, various classes.... 47c Coach Carpenters 70c Freight Car Carpenters.... 630 Car Repairmen 03c Upon reflection. I believe that you will be broad-minded enough to accept the recent decisions of the United States Railroad Labor Board which you consider uutavor able. A long drawn out contest would mean losses and suffering, not only for you and your families, but also the public. VVe should ail recog nize that the public interest always rises above the interest of the rail road ov its employes. None of us is fortunate enough to have issues affecting his life air ways decided in his favor. The principle of “rule or ruin” inva riably has led to disaster. It can have no other ending.

The management of the Illinois Central System believes that those of you wbo are out on strike have been It bears no feeling of hostility towards those who have left its service. To those who have remained loyal it ac knowledges a debt of Platitude. It feels that it has a valuable asset in its old employees, and it is eager to hold them together, Itbe* lieves that if thbse of you who are out will calmly analyze the issues upon which vou are striking, your better judgement will assert itself and you will return to your posh tions. I sincerely invite yon to return. Morever I esrnestly ad vise you to pursue that course. "hose who report for duty not 1 ...er than 11:59 p. m Monday, July 17, 1922, may do so with the resumption of full seniority and pension rights and will be treated as if their services had been con tinuous, Those returning after that time, if accepted, will rank as new employes, I trust that those of you who are out will consider this matter seriously and that your action, whatever it may be. will turn out to be for your own best interests as well as the best interests of your families and those dependfhgupon vou for a living. I ai.k those of you who are strik ing to bear in mind that you ac cepted the decision of the United (States Railroad Labor Board when they were favorable to you. and that the Illinois Central System accepted those decisions which were unfavorable to it. Let mo also again remind you that since December, 1917, vou have received three general increases in wages ami that your hourly rates of wages in effect at present, as li\ed by the United States Railroad La bor Brfard. are from 40 to 113 par cent higher than in 1917, as fol lows : \ 1917 Increases Hourly Kates Over 1917 50c 40 per cent 29 1-2 to 32 I-2c 43 to 59 •• •• 40c 75 “ *• 35 l-2c 77 “ 29 I-2c 113 “ “ heen fully demo sstrated.
