Haying there is nearly done; wheat will be ready to harvest by the 25th of this month; saw many fields, of barley looking like green velvet and things are in very fine condition; about three weeks earlier than here. For many miles through Indiana one is not out of sight of some beautiful lake. Farming land there is much higher than here but taking all things into consideration Michigan is a grand old ritate to live in. In fact it is home. The hog and dairy business is the principle line of stock industry in Stubens county where the writer investigated farm products. Jerseys are the most popular; Poland China hogs are most in evidence.

The Orleans Epworth league went to Belding city park Friday evening for a business meeting and picnic supper. It is an ideal spot and the evening was greatly enjoyed. Children s day at Laston church went off with a swing last bunday morning that was a credit' to the children and the committee. The decorations were beautiful. The baccalaureate service was held at Orleans church Sunday evening. The pastor spoke from the text. Ex odus 14:15, "Speak unto the children of Israel that they go forward". He spoke of Moses as a leader, urging the class to become leaders rather than followers. The choir furnished special music. The church was dec orated with class colors.

Men, donf t stay tat homo from church because, it is hot. We do not wear any coats in hot weather. It was decided last Sunday to pur chase the Crown piano for Dildine church. Those people have gone at the thing with lots of vim and the pi ano debt will be cleaned up almpst before we know it.- Orleans Ladies' aid voted at its last meeting to have screens made for the church to get even with th? mosquitoes. Dildine church has purchased coal for next winter. Orleans church lawn hasi been graded inside the curb. We will set out a row of maples next year to help to beautify the ground?. Dry Cigars. When, a cigar is dried, once it never regains its original flavor or aroma. Moistenersl give little trouble and they cost little. The absorbent ma terial generally used by manufactur ers is mineral wool or asbestos. This is sanitary and a moistener that will keep in good shape for from ono to five years. Formerly a felt was used but this, as do sponges, soon becomes sour and foul and spoils the cigar stock. To keep a sponge in a cigar case is a mistake, for the moisture is given off too slowly, in addition to the fact that its use is not good from a sanitary standpoint. Different in Men and Women. Young Johnny had been reading the evening paper, and paused contem platively for a few moments. "Father," said he, "what is 'iner tia'?" - i "Well," replied the father, "if I have- it, it's pure laziness, but if your mother has it, it is nervous prostration." Your work tells the tale. If you don't care how you do it, don't try to deceive the public, they know it People go on suffering from little stomach troubles for years and imag ine they have a serious disease. They overeat or over drink and force on the stomach a lot of extra work. But they never think that the stom ach needs extra help to do extra work If these people would take a Mi-o-na tablet with or after meals if would be a great big help to the Stomach in its strain of overwork. Mi-o-na tablets help your tired-out stomach to do its work and banishes the cause. No matter what you eat or drink Mi-o-na tablets should sweeten your sour stomach and stop gas belching in 10 minutes. The heaviness disap pears, and the stomach is greatly aid ed in us worK oi digestion. And M-io-na not only promptly re lieves all distress but if taken regu larly will absolutely banish indigestion by buiding up the flabby overworked walls of the stofach and making them strong enough to digest the most hearty meal.
