The ordinary boy who plays
marbles hasn’t stopped to figure
that they are all made out of clay,
just ordinary clay dug up out of
the ground. Most of the supply
is made at Canton and Akron,
Ohio—the industry is a large one
employing many girls. The man
ufacturing continues the year
round, but the shipment is de
pendent on when the boys are
ready to begin to play marbles.

In the spacious residence on the
C. P. Brown farm west of Revere,
was celebrated the wedding of
the eldest daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. C. P. Brown, Miss Edna F.
to Mr. David White Swickard of
Cheyenne Wells, Colorado. 11
was a home wedding the guests
being kindred and intimates of
the bride and her parents. The
floral decorations were largely of
the various spring blossoms, with
bunches of beautiful flowers
tastefully placed and m great
profusion. The bride was be
comingly gowned in white, so
dainty and faultless for the hap
py event. The bridegroom was
proud and smiling in the con
ventional garb of black. The re
freshments were varied and
sumptuous, all cake was not only
wedding cake but bride’s cake.
Their excellence was a fine com
pliment to her skill.
Both the bride and groom own
farms in Colorado, but Clark coun
ty looks so good to them that
they will make this their perma
nent home. The bride is t h e |
daughter of one of the old and
honored families of our country
and a lady of the best womanly
type. The fortunate groom is a
young man of an excellent rep
utation and good business ability.
Wecanconfidently predict for her
a prosperous and happy future
and a host of friends will follow
them with good wishes. Rev. W.
F. Laidley was the officiating
clergyman.—Clark County (Mo.)
More Water Not More Land.
The time to think about putting in a
pumping plant to provide for a water
supply next summer when the whole
country is burning up is right now
and suppose we sit down and discuss
the matter a little among ourselves:
“A pumping plant large enougli to ir
rigate twenty acres will add the equiv
alent of a whole section in the dry coun
try where the short grass has to do its
part in maintaining the family. Any
irrigation dich system which will water
a whole quarter section of alfalfa is as
good as the permanent acquisition of
eigiit sections of range. In other
words, a section of alfalfa is equival
ent to 20,000 acres of range as a source
of food supply for stock. The figures
are worth studying. They show that
a great many of our livestock men are
worrying about more range and schem
ing and planing to get more land when
they would find it easier aud more
profitable to cultivate some of the land
they have already and get far greater
returns from it. All they have to do
in this connection is to buy a good
husky pump, throw up a reservoir and
go to it. Sitting around the stove all
winter will not irrigate the dry ground
