The Montcalm potato market in Greenville, probably the largest in Michigan, looks like a de serted farm these days compared to former years. Opinions vary as to whether the de liveries will be much larger or not. The last week has averaged about 50 loads a day against 100 to 150 loads of former years. The tubers run from the smallest to the near large, with a decided scar city of the large ones but everything goes. The best price so far reached has been $1.14. Different buyers place their estim ate at from 40 to GO per cent of a regular crop, but many raisers are storing their potatoes, which helps hold back an already slow market SMOKY ROW Mr. and Mrs. C. G. Blackmer and son, Dale, of Washington, D. C, are spending their vacation at Oak Lawn, the home of Mr. and Mrs. R. B. Cowles and C. B. Johnston and fam ily.

The old farmer takes a load of beans to mar ket and comes home wit two or three hundred dollars in his pocket, smok ing five cent cigars with a couple of calico dresses for his wife and a pair of shoes for the kids, and he begins to feel like a millionaire and his face is about eighteen inches .shorter than it was last spring when he was a-wading around in the mud trying to get his crops planted.

MAIL ORDERS PROMPTLY TAKEN CARE OP Other Side of Sheriff Ex- . Expense 1915 The SERVICE BILL for the sheriff and five deputies (not including court officers) for the year 1915 is $6,909.89, the county was reimbursed by fines and costs by reason of convictions the sum of $505.00; which means the total cost to tho county for the year 1915 for the sheriff and five deputies for service, $6,464.89. Tho bills allowed by the board of supervisors, sometimes called the sheriff's bills, include in addition to the sheriff's service bills above, the bills for county coroners, truant offi cer, court officers, constables, city and villape marshal fees, pame wardens, nnrl HMortivpa naid bv the board of su pervisors, and jail board bill; for none of which items tho sherm is respon sible. The board bill is the amount paid by the board of supervisors to tho sheriff for meals furnished by him to persons awaiting trial and persons committed to the county jail under sentence from the county courts, and nvpr which he has no control. The amount now allowed is 17 cents a meal; this amount was increased in 1911 from 13 Vfe cents to 15 cents a meal, and again increased in 1913 from 15 cents to 1714 cents a meal, to meet the increasing cost of provi sion; both increases having been made by the board of supervisors. Ionia, Michigan, October 16, 1916. I hereby certify that the above is a correct statement taken from the records in the county clerk's office of Ionia county, of the sheriff and five deputies service bills for the year 1915; also of the facts and circum stances in connection with the so-called sheriff's bills as allowed by the board of supervisors.

Why Advertising Pays Everybody reads the ads and nearly everybody remembers what they read. Mrs. Jones remarks to Mrs. Smith that she simply must go to the store and get a new dress pattern, or a win ter coat, or possibly a new hat. Mrs. Smith has read of the latest creations at some store and immediately springs her knowledge upon Mrs. Jones, who simply can't resist the temptation to go and see for herself. Once there she generally buys. Farmer Hankinson needs a new har ness, or a plow, or some other imple ment for progressive farming. Hid neighbor, has read tho up-to-date ad of the implement house in the local paper and incidentally mentions that So-and-So carries a good article, which he is advertising ouite heavily. This excites Farmer Ilanldnson's cur iosity and he "just drops in to see it." Ho too, often ends with a buy. The woman's club or sewing circle, or the pink tea ladies get together and spend the afternoon or evening in gathering up stray bits of infor mation. Anything that has attract ed the eye of any member comes in for discussion and nothing is more dear to their hearts than those de lightful things that were advertised in the last issue of the paper. Of course they all want to know about them, and then they must see. them, and in the end they buy them. Bill Doolittle wants a new overcoat, and the well written overcoat ad nev er gets by him. He drops in and looks over the coats of which the merchant has spoken so glowingly. They are as represented, and he buy.?. Yes, they all read the ads, and they talk about the goods they read about, and they buy when they are sufficient, ly interested to talk about them. Of course advertising pays. Every body knows it pays. Coopersville Observer. OAKFIELD fipoi-fo Klsbv. Frank Bowman and their wives and Oren Elsby attended the funeral of Amelia uooiey in ueia ing Sunday.

Says There is no Crocker Land Ensign Fitzhugh Green of the U. S. navy who accompanied D. B. McMil lan in 1913 on his exnedition in search of Crocker Land whoso discovery was reported by it. K. 1'cary, tne arctic explorer, has confirmed previous re rnrts thnt thpro is no such land. Ac cording to Peary's report, he observed about 130 miles from the Greenland coast a body of land which he nam ed Crocker land. Green says that McMillan and himself traveled 150 and, favored by clear weather, they determined from observations and careful soundings that Peary had been deceived as to tho existence of land there. Further confirmation of this belief was furnished by the fact that they themselves saw mirages. . .McMillan and Green explored and mapped the northern coast of Green land and obtained a valuable collec tion of skins, minerals and other ex hibits which are to bo brought to tho United States soon. Friends of Dr. Cook, the discredited polar explorer, havo pointed to the doubt about Crocker Land as evidence tending to show that reports and statements made by Peary concerning other polar discoveries of his are un reliable. It is said that explorers in tho polar regions may be easily de ceived by low hanging clouds which remain for days in one position, so if Peary was deceived bv this and other necessarily cast on hia veracity or reliability as an explorer. Some men are born lucky and some arc lucky to havo been born at all. Why does a selfish man expect the wholo world to mourn for him when ho is gone? A white lie is seldom as white as it is painted. Success is the one sin some people refuse to forgive in their friends. The last step in a questionable un dertaking may be a lockstep.
