RINKE MUST KEEP PACE WITH THE TLMES One of the biggest services that a country newspaper can perform for its community is to help make the community a better place to live in. . The demand for the services of com petent people is so great that they can choose their location. The town that does not keep up-to-date will lose its progressive young men and women and suffer the fate of eastern villages whose young men and women went west and whose old men and women are past the productive stage. Our farms demand the attention of progressive intelligent people if they are to respond to the enormous world demand for the production of food. That kind of people can get big money in factories and offices of every description in the cities where all mod ern conveniences are available. If the modern conveniences do not come to the people on the farm, the people on the farms will go to the modern con veniences. Water, heat and light must be a? conveniently availablo to people who produce food on farms as to people who work in offices or stores or shops. Otherwise the farmer's boy3 and gills will leave the farm and the price of food will increase. . FERTILIZE THIN WHEAT LAND Farmers who plan to sow wheat on thin land this fall should not fail to use fertilizer with it, if the fertilizer can he secured. Results from the exper iment fields of the University of Mis souri College of Agriculture show that an increase of 5 bushels of wheat is a conservative estimate of what may be expected from the application of 150 pounds of highly phosphoric fertil isers. Acid phosphate, bono meal, or mixed fertilizers which contain 1 to 2 per cent nitrogen and from 10 to 12 per cent of available phosphates are the best fertilizers to use. The value of a 5-acre increase this season will certainly be not under $10 and the cost of 150 pounds of these fertilizers will range, from $2.15 to $3.25 at present prices. As stated, a 5-bushel increase is a conservative estimate. There are many places, however, where- the yield will be increased considerably more than this, altho it is probably best to limit the expectation to 5 bushels. Further, the return on clover and gr ass following the wheat is usually very marked. N PREVENTION CONTROLS POULTRY MITES Preventive measures are the best methods of control for poultry mites. Since it is known that darkness, dampness, and filth are favorable for the development of the pest, it is clear that sunshine, dryness, and cleanliness are the best means of pre venting the mites from getting a start. The hen house cannot be kept too clean, and it should be so con structed that it may be easily cleaned. Provide good ventilation and allow a maximum amount of sunshine within. For eliminating the mites from the hen house, T. J. Talbert, of the Uni versity of Missouri College of -Agriculture, recommends thorough spray ing with kerosene emulsion, strong lime-sulphur, miscible oils, strong to bacco solution, or commercial stock dips. The spray should be repeated within a week or ten days to kill the young which may have developed from the eggs that were not destroyed by the first spray. Sprays should be applied as often as necessary to keep the pests under control. SURPLUS OF VELVET BEANS IN THE SOUTH Because of the surplus of velvet beans in the South efforts are being made by the Bureau of Markets to acquaint dairymen and feeders of live stock in the North and East of the value of velvet-bean meal in feeding live stock. Experiments have been conducted at southern experiment sta tions indicating that this meal is an excellent feed for cattle, horses and hogs, and it is pointed out that be cause of the high prices of mill feeds velvet-bean meal should be used more generally by dairymen in the North and East. Now the least pathetic feature of the present situation is that trie deep sea excursion fishing boats will take a vacation. An exhibition of German art and kultur is to be opened in Constanti nople. This is enough to cause the "unspeakable" Turk to And his voice. DR. R. E. WALSH DENTIST Farmington, Realty Bldg. Phone 111. Tuesday, Thursday and . Saturday. . Flat River Phone 572.

"Every man who helps to set free a fighting man is helping to fight and win tne w;r, ' declared Provost Marshal General Crowder to day, commenting on hi3 "work or fight" regulation. "The army and the navy are tak ing the men who are best able physi cally to do the fighting," he added. "But that is-only one part cf the na tional task imposed by the war. The other part that falls on the otner man, in to set free thoEe men who are to do the fighting.
