The almost snowless winter this
year is making a neat saving for
Richland township in both dollars and
hard work. Last year the township
snow equipment was engaged in an
almost constant battle to keep the
roads cleared of snow at a cost of
approximately $2,600. This year the
cost has been only nominal. One of
the trustees estimated this week that
the cost would not exceed $25. Money
spent for snow removal comes from
the township’s road fund and delays
the program of hardsurfacing. Pre
sent plans are for hardsurfacing four
miles of highway in the township.
After this is completed there will re
main 18 miles of stone pike roads
in the township, it is stated.

Chinese proclaiming the “cease fir
ing” order, thousands of which were
dropped by American planes over
Communist territory in North China
presumably after the conferences
held by U. S. Ambassador Marshall
with Chiang Kai-Shek and Commun
ist leaders. The leaflet is attracting
much atention in the News window.

Life nowadays is just one thing
after another—and the latest is the
shortage of egg crates, which is giv
ing Bluffton produce dealers some
extra headaches in addition to the
disastrous break in the egg market
several weeks ego. Produce buyers
say they never have seen a time when
egg crates are so scarce. Eggs can
not be piled up or placed in sacks
like other food products in storage
so lack of crates or other containers
will certainly result in wasted food
at a time when world needs are criti
And speaking of eggs reminds us
that the present incubator-brooder
method almost universally followed
in hatching chicks is a comparative
new development. It was only some
thirty years ago that a few venture
some poultrymen decided to discard
the hen in favor of a new-fangled
contraption which appeared on the
market known as a hard coal brooder,
which was followed by the rapid rise
of the commercial hatchery business.
