Here is August—with dogdays ...
and it’s the last month of the of
ficial slacks season and bathing
suits and swimming at the
Buckeye which has been a well
managed and inviting place this
summer and end of the vacation
season ... we heard a locust the
other day—hope that doesn’t mean
frost in six weeks—these cool nights
are a reminder that when summer
wanes can autumn’s chill be far
away and Labor day four weeks
from next Monday—and school opens
the next day—and remodeling being
rushed at the college for opening
first week in September which
means that it’s time to be getting
some coal in the bin—they say it
may be higher—and scarce and
cigarets up two cents a pack with
most dealers gettnig 20 cents
straight—and milk up one cent to
22 cents Monday—and hogs hanging
up record marks—they say it’s in
flation but that’s nothing new—old
Adam Smith’s book “Wealth of the
Nations" written three hundred
years ago told all about it and no
one has added much to the subject
since—it should be a best seller and
we commend it for your summer
reading especially if you aspire
to he a congressman and m$ke laws

Modern agriculture goes in for
spraying in a big way—some of the

tomatoes on a commercial scale had
a helicopter dusting their fields last

superior to dustiing from an airplane
