From May 24 to May 29
Inclusive. Get this 1 -quart
For only 15c
This quart pan which would regularly sell for 45c but has been
advertised in several women's magazines at a special introduct
ory price of SOc is offered for the first time at a price of 1 Sc and
the coupon which you can cut out of the Kansas City. Star, Times,
Journal or Post, and when filled out as directed I will honor these
coupons at my store and furnish the pan as advertised for 15c.
This offer is made so that you can see for yourself if you do not
already know the difference between WEAR-EVER and flimsy
aluminun ware.
Aluminum is NOT all the same. Be sure you
get Wear-Ever. Look for the Wear-Ever trade
mark on the bottom of every utensil. We cannot
sell the pan for less than 20c unless the coupon is
presented, because they will cost us more than 15c ,
unless we turn in the coupons. Only one pan sold
to a customer.

Report of Poultry
Show Conferences.
The recent series of conferences
between officers of the Missouri State
Poultry Board and the Missouri State
Poultry Association, with officers of
the county and local shows was for
the purpose of learning the needs of
the small shows and to get sugges
tions on how they can be successfully
une ot tne greatest needs is uni
form cooping and several plans were
suggested. Some of the officers want
the State Poultry Board to recom
mend a standard coop and make ar
rangements for buying those in large
quantities, giving the individual
breeders a chance to get what coops
they need at wholesale prjces. Some
of the poultry show officials would
like to have a circuit of shows and
make a rental arrangement for all
the season, while a few of the most
prosperous shows own coops of var
ious designs and are not particularly
interested In the proposition.
Nothing discounts a poultry show
more than to have the birds cooped
in a variety of boxes, coops and oth
er packages, most of which are dif
ficult to get the birds out of for
Some associations wanted the State
Poultry Board to purchase coops and
rent them to the various shows at
cost, but as the appropriation has
been reduced considerably, that plan
will be impossible, even if it .would
have been practical, which was an
open question.
One of the most important features
connected with a successful poultry
show is in getting lots of publicity be
fore the showj to arouse enthusiaasm
about the work.
' If possible work up a girl's and
boy's poultry club in your community.
There are lots of them starting in all
parts of the country and Missouri has
several. Give the Juniors a setting
of eggs and let them become poultry
fanciers by the time you hold the
next show.
The officers of the Kansas City
district, including its trade territory
are: Edson Snyder, Butler,secre
tary:treasurer, Bates County Poultry
Association; Fred D. Campbell, Lee's
Summit, vice president Suburban
Poultry Association,' and J. S. Nor
man, Gallatin, , secretary Daviess

The rural-examination papers have
been examined and mailed. I eon
gratulate those who have been sue
cessful . in securing the required
grades, and sincerely hope that those
:s fortunate will try again, next
Most of the teachers graded the
papers as I requested. Some of them
did not. I had several reasons for
asking the the teachers to do this.
First, I considered it more -just for
the pupil, as the teachers in charge
understood the ability, of the pupils
better than I." Secondly, it has been
my observation that some teacners
grade unjustly, and I desired to find
who these are. To justify what I
have sakfl am going to present some
of the questions and the answers:
One Of the questions was: Who was
Robert Morris? Tell of his service to
his country. One of the answers
read: "Robert Morris invented, the
telegraph. He seen the telegraph in
operation all over the United States.
His service to his country was . in
venting the telegraph." Another
answer read: "Robert Morris in
vented the telegraph. He built lines
and made telephones to talk long
distances over. It was great help to
this country a message could go over
this in a little-while. Before this they
had to go on foot or on horseback."
One of the questions in physiology
was: "Describe the process by which
we hear." One of the answers was.:
1 he process by which we near is-
called the ear. The process on the
side of the head is not the thing from
which all the hearing comes from."
I could give many more such an
swers, the above answers were
graded correct by several teachers.
I do not mean this criticism unkindly,
as I found many of the pap'ers justly

The Season's Crops
It is too early now to make any es
timate of the crops of the season, says
the Wallace Parmer, a season in
which the whole world is interested
in the crops of America as never be
fore. About all that can be said is
the winter wheat crop, grown mainly
in the west, covers a large acreage,
but the increase in acreage will be
about balanced by the loss of condi
tion. There has been a great deal of
freezing and thawing in the middle
states, and the condition is not up to
the average; while in the .. west the
conditions are ideal - We can reason
ably look for about the same yield of
winter wheat as we had last year, not
any more, perhaps a little less. The
conditions for sowing' spring wheat
have .been favorable all over the
spring wheat country,' and we may
expect a considerable - increase in
acreage; but no man can guess - at
r - . ,
what the wheat crop will be until it
The seed corn is excellent this year,
the ground in fine condition, the sea
son favorable for planting. So far,
everything is favorable, but it is too
early to even guess what the crop
yield will be. A failure in the crops
of America this year would be a
world calamity. ; ,
