BACKWARD, TURN BACKWARD Backward, turn backward, O Time in your flight,—I am as blue as they make'em tonight. I have been blessed with an appetite rare, equal to that of a cinnamon bear. Now, I'm lopsided, dyspeptic, and lank, living on stuff that has made me a crank. O, for some gravy like Ma use to make,—Pass pass me me the steak, brother the steak! AY hen I hark to the smokehouse of yore, loaded with goodies from exit to door. Think of the pantry, and spring-house, and cave, busting with viands an angel might crave. Now I front up to vulcanized meat, doped and embalmed till it aint fit to eat. O, for some corn-bread, and hog-jowl and greens—Pass me the beans, brother, pass me the beans. Once we ate hominy, finer than silk. Now, its ground corn-stalks with racket-store milk,—stuff that was never inside of a cow—made out of whitewash, the devil knows how!. I have grown weary of "crisp ies" and "flakes"—cppy-riglit wafers and patented cakes,—factory made fodder that ain't worth a damn! Pass me the ham, brother, pass me the ham!—by Uncle John in theMcKen zie Co. Chronicle. FLY SEASON IS HERE! WEAR A DAISY OX MAY 30TH Jack Williams, Department Adjut ant of the American Legion, today announced that a state wide daisy campaign will be opened on the morn ing of May 27th to continue through Memorial Day. We have just received a stock of screen win dows and doors. Look over your screens and see if they are in shape to use this year, if not place your order at once as we might not have your size when you are ready to buy. On that date two hundred twenty one posts of the American Legion will sell the daisy, their national flower, in order to obtain funds to enable them to carry on their ser vice work. During the last few years this work has been handled by the State Headquarters but the cost of maintaining this department has been more than the membership dues of the organization could cover. We also have the combination screen and storm door. These are a nifty door we would like to have all of our customers come in and see. The Service Division of the Ameri can Legion in North Dakota has handled approximately five thousand claims during the past three years and has received nearly two million in compensation, traning pay, trav el pay, federal bonuses, back pay, state bonuses and allowances for dependents of deceased soldiers.Four campaigns for disabled soldiers have been planned and carried out. An average of ten ex-service men visit State Headquarters each day to have affidavits and claims prepared, to se cure advice on vocational training and for readjustment of their com pensation claims or differences with the several Government departments. It is to carry on this work and to aid the disabled and unemployed that the Daisy is being sold. WE CARRY A STOCK OF SCREEN PAINT CRANE-JOHNSON CO. Phone 119 Hope, N.

Merchants and business men will be asked to use the daisy in their window decorat ing. Hotel and restaurant men will be asked to use the daisy for decorat ing their lobbies and tables. "WEAR A DAISY ON MEMORIAL DAY" is the slogan which has been adopted by the Legion. RECENT REAL ESTATE TRANS PERS STEELE COUNTY X. D.

CITY SCHOOL XOTKS Tuesday night after school the Finley high school base ball team came over from Finley and showed us how to play the great American Game They won the game and practically eliminated us from the Play Day Base Ball game?. But they had to use three pitchers to do it and we got nine h'ts to their seven. Plaine started the game for the locals and he walked the first man, which was a b.i.l Li in)ng' then a hit and a couple of errors gave Finley three scores in the first inning. We came back just as strong in our half and made five hits which counted four runs. Plaine again walked two men in the second but on 3 of them was caught asleep off second, Plaine struck out the next man and the third was out on a fly to Brewster at short stop. We had another bad inning in the third and also the fourth. At the end of the fourth inning the score was eight to four in favor of Finley. Brewster went in to pitch for the local and pitched wonderful bail up to the eighth inning when he walked three men let in one score. However he settled down with thrpe men on h.ises and fanned three men. The locals gathered two runs in the fifth and the score at the end of the game was 9 to 6 in favor of Finley. Sharon is to be here Saturday if the diamond is dry by that time. The preliminary Declamation Con test was held in the High School Aud itorium Wednesday morning at ten thirty o'clock.
