SHORTS AND MIDDLINGS The three high Ohio counties in 4-H club enrollment in 1941 were Muskingum with 1,138 members, Scioto with 1,113, and Fairfield with 1,055. Home mixed fertilizers made en tirely from minerals should be used soon after being prepared or they may harden enough to interfere with their application. Domestic rye grass appears to have considerable promise as a cover crop in Ohio. It can be seeded after corn is cultivated the last time, after tomatoes or cabbage are last culti vated, or ofter early vegetable crops are harvested. This grass grows only from seed. Exports of wheat from Canada to England in recent months have been larger than the combined ship ments of that grain from Argentina, Australia, and the United States. The favorable position of Canada is likely to continue. Ohio farmers who are handy with tools will get considerable practical information from extension bulletin No. 201, The Farm Shop, printed at Ohio State University. The bulletin can be obtained free from any Ohio extension agent. Fruit growers who have been de pending upon retail farm sales to dispose of their crop are wondering xx hat the tire shortage will do to their business. Some of the orchard I owners are considering the idea of pooling crops for sale from a con venient central sales location. What’s the Answer? By EDWARD FINCH WAS THE. PRACTISE. OF KJSSIHG ORIGINATED? 1Z’ ISSING as we know it today (i. e., the touching of lips between two people) was first recorded as practiced among the early Persians. Herodotus tells us that at that time, an equal was kissed on the mouth, an inferior on the cheek. The Romans and classic Greece seemed to practice the custom at about the same time. In less civilized coun tries, the expression of affection was, and frequently still is, accom plished by the rubbing of noses, pat ting of arms, breasts or stomachs. Western Newspaper Union.

A magnesium bomb will burn thru any kind of roof and fall onto the attic floor. Its effect can be counter acted by a fine spray of xvater. or by the use of sand.
