Mill and Elevator Co. Walker W. and Harry M. Can non, proprietors of the W. W. Cannon Elevators ' on Monday completed negotiations for the purchase of the Power Brothers Koller Mills, one of the oldest in stitutions of its kind in the coun ty. . , The formal transfer of the property will be made on June 1st to the C annon brothers, who will adopt the firm name of Can non' Urns.

V. W. Cannon will continue the management of the elevator and H. M. Cannon will assume the management of the firm 's business at the mill June 1st.

Power in 1912 when the business manage ment was placed in the hands of S. F. Warnock, a brother-in-law, E. R. Power supervising the me chanical department.

A judge in Detroit, who holds court amid a swirling maze of mo torists, has just sent a man to the penitentiary for a term of three to fifteen years for running his car into a safety zone while drunk and killing a man". "This will be a wholesome lesson to a lot of other fools in Detroit who think they can mix whisky with gaso line," is the comment of his hon or. Detroit has no monoply of hooliganism awheel that uses the first liquid for a personal lubri cant and the second to burn up the speed laws. The combination is peculiarly deadly, and the worst of it is that those whom it vic timizes are usually the innocent. The man of the reeling head and the derelict wheel wakes from a drunken stupor to a mumbled penitence, but the bloody trail be hind him cries from the ground for his proper penalizing. Public opinion will applaud the decision of a righteous judge, whose seem ing severity is a forewarning that will prevent the loss of other lives. Life of Fence Posts. The average life of fence posts from the following kinds of wood is: Osage orange, 30 years; lo cust, 23 2-4; red cedar, 20 1-2; mulberry, 17 1-2; chestnut, 13 3-4; white cedar, 14 1-3; walnut, 11 1-2; white oak, 11 1-2; pine, 11 1-4 ; tamarack, 10 1-2 ; cherry, 10 1-3; hemlock, 9; sassafras, 8 9-10; elm, 8 3-4; ash, 8 1-2; red oak, 7; willow, 6 1-4. The number of years that a fence post will last should be considered in the price ' paid for it Oftentimes for a few cents additional a much longer lived post can be secured, making it much cheaper is the long run. ' It is estimated that the average life of a cement post is 48 years tod of a steel post 80 years. Uisaoui tod Eaneas Farmer.
