The val ue to the farmers of this new service can hardly be estimated. The winter and spring service will be especially valuable. ***** *4 4 4-4 444*****4 4 4**4 4 t SOCIAL AND PERSONAL. t * * fHM>* ******** **** ****** **** Miss Lalla Mae Dial entertained the Mysterious Twenty-two Club at her home on Main street Monday after noon.

When He Is Really Its Abject Stave. Money talks and life listens as it listens not to the tongue of men or of angels. Hut when money, the means of life, becomes the end. the end to tdl intents and purposes it is. Then doo9 the man of means, king of a vasty realm, abdicate In favor of the slave. None Is so poor as he that Is pos sessed of his possession; none so con temptible as he that abjectly serves his servant. Money is an old servant of man's, forever forgetting Its placo and going unrebuked. Never to have taken orders from It or "back talk" Is to be a master Indeed. 1 Nothing is more common than to* hear a man bo&st of his money. Is It hiB? Rather, he Is its. It Is a thing of authority. It salth to one man, ?'Go," and he goeth; to another, "Come," and he cometh, and to Its ser vant, "Do this," and this he doeth. At Its word, n-.an jumps out of his sick bed, Jostles his bosom friend, breaks an appointment with love, lets music come and go unheard, beauty unseen. L?8t money should talk to him like the green of the earth, the blue of th? sky, Jealous mistress it is. ho forgoes tho gTeen of the earth, the blue of the sky, flowers and the songs of birds. The voice of hiB old playmate, tho river, calls to him in vain; the mother tongue of wind and wave is no longer oven a memory; tho meaning of pleas ure is lost to him. All this for money's sake.?Smart Set. WAGON JACK IS CONVENIENT] Nebraska Man Describes and Illus trates Farm Implement That Often Comes In Handy.

OTjBS Lay a llttlo tile through the garden before garden work begins. Don't forget to plant half an acre or so of sweet corn for early feeding. Everybody makes mistakes, but the man who Is most successful profits by his, Hum all trimmings and trash In the orchard and garden and kill insects and fungi. Twenty acres of corn put Into the silo will supply 30 bend of thrifty cows for a year. The old-fashioned plan of raising the flower or vegetable beds is fast going out of Btyle. One winter's exposure to the weath er will do tho tools more harm than several years' use. Peas, radishes, lettuce and similar hardy plants may safely bo planted very early In spring. Wait till after frost and till the ground becomes warm before planting beans and sweet corn. Act out rhubarb, brush fruit and such plants Just as early as the ground will do to work. Radlfl.es have the best flavor when grow, In a loamy soil that is light tnd rich to promote rapid growth.
