Ie a ll e n e o e!meeeIeI INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT PUMPKINS In the current issue of Farm and Fireside appears an article entitled "In Defense of the Pumpkin." The following facts about pumpkins and the uses to which they can be put are taken from the article: "Pumpkins are largely com posed of water, and so some agricultural writers have de clared that pumpkins have little value as stock food. The same objection might be made against grass, which everybody knows is the best food in the world for farm live stock. Pumpkins, in my experience, are as valuable to feed to cows and steers as turnips, rutabagas, and beets. "Horses are fond of pumpkins and will eat them without any cutting up. They are healthful for horses that are kept on dry feed when fed in moderation. "Hogs will eat pumpkins, and they are cheap and wholesome feed for them when fed in con nection with grain. We cut the pumpkins into small pieces which can be eaten easily, and put them into the trough instead of. break ing them up and throwing them into the pen. We find it pays well for the time spent in cut ting. The pumpkins are fed in the morning when appetites are keen, and before the grain is given." THE WAGES THAT FARMERS GET In the current issue of Farm and Fireside, the national farm paper published at Springfield, Ohio, Judson C. Welliver, Wash ington correspondentof that pub lication, writes a most interest ing article in which he publishes many facts recently collected by the United States Government in the course of an investigation of 700 farms in Indiana, Illinois an .Iowa. On -the question-of the wages that the farmer earns Mr. Welliver reports: "The most interesting compu tation made by the experts from studying these 700 farms was that concerned .with the wages the farmer gets. The hired man! always knows what his wage is; the farmer generally hasn't an idea. Well, the statistics show that just about one third of the farmers managing their own! farms get less than rio wages at* all. ! "The group of the men who earned the largest incomes as compensation for their manage ment of their farms are shown to have been in almost or quite all cases live-stock farmers. "In general, the live-stock farmer improves his land most; and the man who sells his crops improves it least, and commonly may be said to injure it most." WHAT RURAL SCHOOLS WILL SOMETIME BE According to the current' issue of Farm and Fireside E. C. Clax ton, United States commissioner of edcucation, has aligned him self with those who have at vision of what rural schools must sometime be. Following is Mr. Claxton's idea: "Every rural school will one day have attached to it a farm of twenty or thirty acres pro vided with a house for the teach er and the, teacher's family. This farm will be a kind of mod el farm, if properly operated by the teacher, and a center of the agricultural and social life of the distriet. And, he might add, when that time comes the exam ination of the teacher for his certificate may safely be con fined to his ability to manage this farm and make it produce. WHO MAKES MONEY FAItM ING AND HOW? In the current issue of Farm and Fireside, the national farm paper psbhisked at Sprijagied, Ohio, Judson C. Welliver, Wash ington correspondent of the pub lication, writes an interesting article in which he shows that large farms are more profitable than small ones in proportion to the dollars invested. He says that after two or three years of investigation the Government has published a bulletin present ing the conclusions of a survey of representive farms in Indiana, Illinois and Iowa, wherein is shown who makes the money farming and how, also who loses it and why. Following is an ex tract giving some of the facts contained in the Government's reports: "In the first place, it seems to have discovered that most of it is made by the landlord, and that chiefly out of the increase in land values. The farmer gets poor wages for his work. In a start lingly large proportion of the cases he gets no wages at all, af ter allowance is made for inter est on investment and cost of health. The man on the small farm makes less wages than the man on the bigger farm because it costs more for what the efficiency experts might call over head operating costs on a small than on a large farm. - If you don't own enough land to make a good sized economic farming unit, rent some and farm it along with what you own. If you can't get it, sell what you have and go where you can buy enough or rent enough, to make the proper unit. "The Department figures show that as the size of the farm in creases the proportion of it actual ly raising crops increases, and the number of horses and amount of machinery required per acre to farm it decreases. Likewise, until the farm gets big enough to make it possible to handle labor most efficiently-that is, to have something for all the hands to be doing all the time that is worth while-the proportionate labor cost is too large on the small farm. That may be tough on the intensive experts, but it's a fact they can't get around. The small farm must have the various implements, but they don't do as much work per dollar of cost that they represent, as on the bigger farm. The survey which brought out these and many more important facts included 277 farms in In diana, 196 in Illinois, and 227 in Iowa. In each state rather more than half were operated by the owners, and the rest by tenants. iO WHERE YOU PLEASE EAT WHAT YOU PLEASE That is what you can do if you take Dodson's Liver Tone. Many people know the danger of calomel, yet they take it be cause they know of nothing bet ter. Other people are not afraid of calomel, because they do not understand what a dangerous drug it is. Because it has never hurt them, they believe it never will. No one needs to take danger ous calomel (which is just an other form of mercury). Shute's Drug Store sells Dod son's Liver Tone for fifty cents a bottle and guarantees that it takes the place of calomel. Dodson's Liver Tone is a pleas ant-tasting vegetable remedy that livens up the liver without causing any restriction of habit or diet. It has none of the had after-effects of calomel and is safe for children as well as You don't run a single risk when you try Dodson's Liver Tone, because if you aren't en tirely satisfied all you need to do is go right back to where you bought it and have eyour money cheerfully refunled to you with a smile.

HUNTINGTON. A Connecticut boy-one of nine children --born in 1821. His parests were poor bat thrifty. At a very early age he was com pelled to do such work as he could. Ex cepting four months in the year, when at school, he worked hard all the time. He was 14 years of age when he went to, work for a neighbor at $7 per month and board. At the end of the year he had saved all the money thus earned. At the age of 21 he had saved enough money to go into the general merchandsse business with his brother. When the news of the discovery of gold in California came, he drew $1,200 front his business and started west via the Isthmns of Panama. For want of shipping facilities he, with many others, was detained on the Isthmus for three months. During this time he traded in commodities and made $4,0M0, to add to his original $120O0. He located in Sacramento and engaged In the hardware and miners' supply busi ness. In a few years he had sufficient capital to undertake uniting the two coasts with a railroad. To his untiring efforts are we indebted for the first trans-continental railroad. He amassed a fortune of over 50 million dollars. das Paid on Time Certificates of Deposit Paid on Savings accounts $1.00 Starts an account A. MORESI, President. YARD and OFFICE L. H.
