WHAT'S THE MATTER
WITH AMORY ?
The local representative of
Swift & Company had an order
from Amory the past week for
a case of eggs. The order was
filled from a consignment of
cold storage fruit just from
Chicago. These eggs were
bought in the south last March
and April at from 10 to 15 cents
per dozen and shipped to Chicago
where they have been carefully
stored until a shortage brought
them into demand at fancy
prices—anywhere from 35 to 50
cents per dozen. The time ar
rived and Swift & Company
turned loose their eggs at a good
n I'A fi f
Amory’s case is not an excep
tional one- The entire south is
experiencing an egg famine
which seems to extend in every
direction. There never has been
a time when the supply was so
short and fancy prices were so
easily obtained. This condition
has been brought about by a
failure of the southern people to
raise grain. The poultry busi
ness cannot be made profitable
unless there is a bountiful sup
ply of corn, wheat, oats or rye.
The south has had none of these
in great measure for several
years. As a result living has
advanced materially and a num
ber of the necessary articles in
every household have reached
In making our plans for an
other year the question of a crop
of small grain should not be
overlooked. Nothing will pay
half so well as furnishing the
fowls with small grain. It is too
late to plant wheat and rye for
this season, but a small patch of
oats near the house will pay for

The citizens of Cleveland, 0.,
have inaugurated an anti-meat
strike as a blow at the increased
cost of living. It is estimated
that fully 6,000 men have signed
a pledge to abstain from meat a
month in an effort to break the
high prices. An effort will be
made by the promoters of the
pian to spread the doctrine of
anti meat to all parts of Ohio.
Already a similar movement has
been started in Springfield, and
while the strike is directed at
the high cost of meat, the ad
vanced prices of other staple
foods will not be overlooked.
The Baltimore American says
if, at the iniative of the United

differences can be arbitrated and

too much like the establishment

A Quaint Indorsement.
J. Pierpont Morgan at the
recent diocesan convention in
New York, amused a group of
clergymen with a story of a
“He was as ignorant, this
good man, of liancial matters,”
said Mr. Morgan, “as the
average financier is ignorant of
matters ecclesiastical. /
“He once received a check—
the first he had ever got in his
life—and took it to a bank for

check,” said the paying teller,
returning it through his little
“‘Indorse it?’ said the old
minister, in a puzzled tone.
“ ‘Yes, of course. It must be
indorsed on the back.”
“ ‘I see,’ said the minister.
And, turning the check over,
he wrote across the back of it.”
“ ‘I heartily indorse this
check.’ ”—St. Louis Globe

Why You Need |
Some of These Tools |
Go and look at the household hammer, screw
driver or hatchet. . Would you give them to a
carpenter to work with without an apology? If
they are not good enough for a carpenter, they’re
not good enough for you.
TOOLS AND CUTLERY
are workman-like tools, quality tools. If you have use for
a hammer you want it to do a hammer’s work—and
the better the hammer the better the work. This is
true of any tool. Keen K utter Tools are
recognized as being the only complete,
high-grade line on the market. They
are guaranteed perfect or money
refunded, so you take no chances.
