It’s a grand time for travel and sightseeing.
Mother Nature’s brilliant fall show is on dis
play. Trees are dressed in fiery reds and golds.

this autumn spectacle is through the large pic

Puppy Dairy Bar
When Dr. E. J. Hall’s Irish setter,
Pepper, gave birth to 13 puppies a
short time ago the Findlay veterin
arian built a wooden “dairy bar”
from which protrude 13 soft rubber
nipples at which they guzzle their
daily milk rations. They “snitch
snacks” from their mother, but Dr.
Hall tends bar twice a day, warm
ing the milk and then filling each
of the bottles with the correct
portion for their puppy stomachs.
Each feeding spout is labeled with
a name of one of the Irish pups—
Danny, Molly, O’Shea, Mike, Pepper,
Rosie, Bridget, McBoy, Mickey, Pat
O’Flynn, Dennis and Terry—but
come dinner time the “first there,
first served” rule holds. It is
Pepper’s first family, although she
is 7 years old. .....

Few farmers will question the value of skim
milk in feeding pigs, calves or chickens. With
supplements so scarce, it becomes still more
profitable to keep that skim milk right on the
farm and sell the cream to The Page Dairy

The toughest period of mail-carry

In the first, Mike never so much as
had a boy on his route wounded.
In the last he didn’t fare so well.
“The hardest job in my career
was delivering the confirming letters
on the deaths of two boys on my
