FRIDAY MAY 7 , 1920 An "Old Clothes Club" is just as impressive and honorable as an "Overall Club." The fact that bacon is selling in Staunton for 22 cents the Round would indicate that the Monterey merchants are favoring the producer and not the consumer. o ? < Clean Up tlie Stable Fly Have you ever tried to sleep on a hot summer night when just-one mos quito had crept through the window screen? Imagine your state of mind if that single mosquito were multi plied by 100 and you had your hands tied! ' That sensation, according to the Bureau of Entomology, United btates Department of Agriculture, is some thing comparable with what a horse, mule, or cow endures when the stable fly is present in great numbers The stable fly greatly resembles the ordinary house fly but for the lance with which he is armed. It is known that he carries disease from infected animals to healthy ones, and theie is somo ground for belief that the in sect aids the spread of cpinal menin gitis among human beings. The eggs cf the fly are laid in loose, warm straw heaps and piles of stable refuse. A plague of flies al ways starts from those sources, and the control, of the pest is best manag ed by scatering the straw early in the spring before the beginning of warm weather and plowing it under, or by burning it when the former method can not be appiiicc. Stable refuse should be scattered regular intervals of one week or less throughout the season, starting with early spring. Inthis way the first gen err tlon of t've pest Is destroyed and a plague aveitcd. A recent publication of the clop;*.! tT.ent, Farmer's Bulletin 1097. gives in detail the life history of the stable flf, methods for cor.tiol and some fucis concerning the amou nt of damage- dene by the insect. ? o Relation of Soil to Road Building An investigation which promises to place at the disposal of highway engineers important information re garding the relation ofsoils to high way durability has been undertaken uy the Bureau of Public Roads, Un ited States. Department of Agricul ture. This work includes taking sam ples of soil at spots in the subgrade of a highway where the road has be gun to fail, studying surrounding geo logical conditions to deermine how moisture arrived in the subgrade thus destroying its value, making labor atory tests to determine the physical characteristic.; of soils, and- obtain ing ^ scientific measure of bearing \alue ui" ft 'Is In t^is inv-tj*. gati^n it is pr \:d ? i? i btain as much cooper ation as possible from various State highway departments. The Bureau of Soils is cooperating with the Bureau of public Roads in this work. Preliminary investigation has been started in Maryland on the Washing ton-Baltimore road, and will be ex tended beyond Baltimore and on oth er roads in Maryland. Progress has been made in the matter of laboratory testes, a number of samples of sub grade materidi and other samples hav nig been examined. The Federal highway engineers point out that soils differ widely in their ability to support loads particul arly when they are wet. Just why this is true and just what are the charicteristics which make them, dif ferent is little understood at present. It is in this field of investigation, of increasing importance because of the growng volume of heavy traffic, that the Federal investigators expect to secure important information. TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN NOTICE is hereby given that on the first day of July term of the Cir cuit Court for Highland County, Va., I will make application to said ccurt for an order directing the removal of the estate of Kemper Malcom, an in fant now residing in Cole's County, 111 from the jurisdiction of Highland county, Va., and authorizing me as the guardian of said Kemper Malcom in Cole's CoUnty, 111. to sue for and receive the Laid , estate and remove j he same to the domicile of the said Kemper Malcom.

Leaders of the churches and women's clubs and soc ial workers here are engaged in a city-wide drive to. induce residents of Louisville to join in a campaign to cut down the cost of living by cur tailing reckless buying at high pri-* ces. Thousands have already joined and it is hoped eventually to enlist 300,000 persons. The movement was inaugurated by Louisville club women. It was in dorsed and given impetus by the Presbyterian Tlinisters Circle and the Conferance of Social Workers, Church es have approved it, and the United Trades and Labor Assembly and the Building Trades Council have -been asked to join in permanent organi sation. It is proposed to organize a cheaper iiving committee, to be composed of representatives 9f many civic organi zations. Mayor George W. Smith has given the movement a semiofficial indorse ment by announcing his adherence and Mrs. Smith has promised that her household will be conducted so near as possible along the lines of economy suggested by the promoters of the idea. . . The drive against reckless buying is headed by the Rev. Dr. Chas. W. Welch, president of the Louisville Ministerial Association, who is aided oy a committee including in its mem bership a Roman Catholic priest and a Jewish rabbi, as well as representa tives of women's clubs. "Buy no new clothing, shoes or other wearing apparel," is the first plank in the economy platform. Wear what you have, no matter how shab by or out of style" it continues, and adds: ' "Reduce the consumption of meat in cach household; abstain from candy, soft drinks and other confec tions; deposit money in the bank and keep a record of money saved through practicing economies. "If the people of Louisville will take, this movement seriously," said the Rev. Dr. Welch, "we actually can force down prices here on the neces saries of life. Persons generally are spending money like drunken sailars; labor, which should be producing es sentials, is devoted to nonessentials. This is no time for overalss, ex cept, for working people. We don't want fads ? what we do want is at | least 200.000 Louisville people to (join this campaigns Let's make it a badge of honor to wear old clothes, I carry lunches to the office, abstain from sweets and buy nothing but ab solutely needed articles. Then watch prices drop. Pimples and Eruptions Mean Bad Blood _ People who have impure or impover ished blood should be careful to take only a temperance remedy made of wild roots and barks, such as Doctor Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is and has been for nearly 50 yeara. Ingredients printed on wrapper. ? The first day you start to take thia reliable medicine, impure germs and accumulations begin to separate in the blood and are then expelled through the eliminative organs. In place of the impurities, the ar teries and veins gradually get fresh vitalized blood and the action of this good blood on the skin means that pimples, boils, carbuncles, eczema, rash, acne and many skin blemishes will disappear. Then you must re member that when the blood is right, the liver, stomach,, bowels and kidneys become healthy, active and vigorous and you will have no more trouble with indigestion, backache, headache.

Sometimes talks and demonstra tions are given to the mothers and sometimes they are given to the chil dren at school. It is an interesting fact that the best results come when talks with mothers are supplemented by' talking directly to the children. Milk whole milk is always advised as the ideal food for the growing child, and sometimes the results of the experiments made by an invest igator w.ho fed milk to rats is told the children to drive home the neces sity of drinking milk if they wish to be healthy and strong. Among the pupils who I\eard such a lecture in a school in. Platte Cpunty Wyo., were three boys from one fam ily. All three were very much under weight, as were two younger broth ers at home. Their mother had had little training in the care and feed ing of children and the children show ed it. She was very wiling, however to help carry out the -suggestions about food that the children hrought home from the lecture. . Two mpnths Iatei^the home demon stration agent met the mother who told her how pleased the whole fam ily was at the children's gain in weight and general health since their .change in diet. Then she said: "I must teji you about the experiment that the boys tried with cats to show me that you told them about the rats was' true. They thought that thfr cats | ought to do as well ap rats in an ex periment of that kind, and they had the cats and didn't have .the rats. So ithey took two kittens, | and to one they only. fed Seperat^ed milk, and to the other tfcey gave whole milk with a tablespoon of cream added to each feeding. "It turned but with them Just like it did with Wie'ratfe, to the intense satisfaction of the boys.
