S. reached the 200 mark; our League has thribbled, and our con gregations have been large thro-out the six months. As I have stated from time to time, I do not care much for spasmodic congregations, but I hope we are doing a work that will abide thro-out the year, and I hope to suggest from time to time plans that will keep the work goin. and I hope to have your hearty co operation. I am aware that people are discussing some things I have said, but I am open to criticism and if they can prove I have erred in telling the truth I will apologize. C. I. HOY.

The movement to have every : American farmer select a name for his farm and use the name as a j trade mark, is meeting with great success in soi.ie parts of the coun- j try. Many of our exchanges have published lists of the names select ed for the farms of their neighbor-1 hoods, the publication acting as a I s;rt of a patent or copyright. It has ! been ssdd by some unthinking per ' sous that the plan is not American, j but a little reflection will conviiice: anyone that the point is well taken, j Washington called his home "Mt.j Veiuon," Jiflerson, the great demo- j cat, named his place "Monticello" I and any schoolboy can give you a flz?n I'tr-fr instances. So name your farm and put the amue uut where everyone can see it. Make it a Trade Mark. A well known, advertised trade mark is worth thousands of dollars to the owner. Your farm and its products are your stock in trade. Name them and you have added real hard cash value to everything you sell. Choose a name well suited to surroundings, a name that will tell in its very sound some of the characteristics of your business home; then come to us and have letterheads made for your correspondence with the name of your farm on them and your name and your wife's name and your postoflice address beneath. Of course you want your wife's name on your stationery. She is your partner and the best and the truest, and the hardest working and the most interested party m the whole concern. Once you were glad to get the chance to endow her with all your worldly goods, now make your promise real. Here's how letter head might look: EAST VIEW FARM. James and Mary Smith, Proprietors.

Two Fires Saturday. About 11 o'clock Saturday morn ing fire was discovered at the home of J. B. Anderson. The supposition is that it caught from the flue. The fire had quite a start when discover ed, but the prompt arrival and the energetic work of the fire depart ment soon had it under control. As the fire was between the walls and roof several holes had to be cut in order to put it out. The house was badly damaged by water. Mr. An derson had $1500 insurance on the huuse and $800 on contents. They moved their household goods to the property recently va cated by C. B. Anderson. Saturday evening Fire Chief Wil son was called to the home of E. A Thompson. Smoke was coming out of the roof. On investigating they found the timbers against the flue to be afire. It looked like the be ginning of a pretty big fire. W. W. Wilson and fimily return ed Friday from a months visit in Indiana and Chicago. Within an hour after their arrival M r.
