There is a polishing of hoofs and a brushing of silky coats, a spraying of vines and watchful waiting for the de velopment of fancy fruits, a measuring of eggs and weighing of milk abroad in the land. The season of county fairs approaches. The prospectus for one such event remarks: ''In recognition of the importance of thefair and its educational value to the community the supervisors have made liberal appropriations, which have stimulated interest in agriculture and . added to the comfort of visitors to the fair grounds. "Plans for the Fair here indicate that it will be the best ever held in the history of the county. The premium list shows that the society has done its j part to attract the best exhibitors in .y the state." So the way is paved for one of the pleasantest and most valuable gather ings in the history of any community. It is an event which grows in import ance and gains fresh interest every year. Here friends and neighbors meet and get new ideas and renew old ties. The man who exhibits, whether he gets a prize or not, helps to raise the standard of production in the countryside generally, just as his inter est and study have raised his own stan dards. The visitor gets a new inter est, enthusiasm and respect for the unrlf nf thnsft whn nrnrliirf fnnrctnf fo for the nation. Morally, socially and economically a fair is a great thing. Present Newspaper Costs. July 1st, an increase in postal rates on newspapers took effect and this is an added expense to every newspaper publisher. With no lowering in wages of employes but rather some tendencies to an increase, or shorter hours for the cam a uarrp with nrJnt MtMr nnHnr , 150 per cent more than pre-war price, with power, gas, coal, freight, etc., at Jr war rates,- there is not even a small chance for a reduction in either sub scription or advertising rates for newspapers.

WHEN ANDY LEWIS FOUGHT CHIEF CORNSTALK The battle of Point Pleasant on September 10, 1774, was the first "all American" hattie ever fought on this continent. Europeans had taken part In all Important engagements before French and Indians against Uritlsh and Americans. But when Andy Lewis and his borderers batled with Chief Cornstalk and his Shawnees, It was strictly a native affair. Lewis was born In Ireland, but he had come to this country while still a child, and he was no less an Amer ican than the frontiersmen he led. He fought with George Washington In the French and Indian war and he became one of the greatest leaders of the co lonial troops. lie was six feet two Inches tall and powerful. Lewis was chosen by Lord Dunmore In 1774 to lead a picked body of men against the Shawnees while Dunmore attacked them from another direction. Chief Cornstalk knew the two armies were coming and decided to defeat one before the other could Join It a fa vorite trick of Napoleon. The Shawnees attacked Lewis' army early one morning. Lewis had taken out his pipe when the first shot was fired. He coolly finished lighting his pipe and then gave the orders to his men, who rushed to meet the Indians. Koth sides fought "Indian-fashion," dodging from tree to tree and taking advantage of every bit of cover. The fighting was at a close range and In tho smoke-filled forest frontiersman and Indian came hand to hand toma hawk against hunting knife. Late in the afternoon the Indians gave way, but there was no rout. Cornstalk was too good n general for that and the Americans paid dearjy for every foot of ground they won. That night Lewis held possession of the battlefield, but he had won It nt a terrible cost 75 men killed and 140 wounded. Andy Lewis and his bor derers had won the greatest Indian battle In early American history. Andy Lewis did not have n chance to make a name for himself In the War of the Revolution which soon fol lowed. He was passed over for gen erals of less ability and he died in 1780, an embittered, broken-hearted old man. The fate of his opponent, Cornstalk, had also been a sad one. In 1777 he came to a fort on the Ohio on a friendly mission. He was arrest; ed and thrown Into prison. While there the great Shawnee leader was treacherously murdered by a mob of soldiers In revenge for the death of a comrade who had been killed by Indians. Charlevoix Fuss Not Warranted No Danger From Infantile Parlysis. Says Doctor. The scare that developed last Wed nesday and Thursday when it was discovered that Charlevoix had two cases of infantile paralysis. is subsiding and Charlevoix summer residents and tourists who had been considering the advisibility of taking their children a way have decided to remain on the ad vice of Dr. R. D. Armstrong, leading physician, and others who have assur ed them there is nothing to fear. One case is that of the seven-year-old son of a Kalamazoo family that occupi es a cottage at the Belvedere resort. It developed three weeks ago and the child is recovering. The other case is at the other end of town and it devel oped Wednesday. A few frightenod mothers packed up and took their children away, but there was no exodus of 300 as was re ported in one of the Chicago newspa pers. There are many tourists lesving for southern points because their vacations are over and the weather is cooler at home, but comparatively few of these are leaving because of the alleged epi demic. More are coming north than going south. Stories that the disease was caused by Charlevoix's contaminated water supply are branded as untrue by Dr. Armstrong, who states that bad water there caused by the leaking of a sewer pipe near the city well, but that trouble has been remedied. Dr. Armstrong also points out that the water drank by the Belvedere victim comes from an. other source a pure, deep well of excellent water and G. C. Stuckey, bacteriologist for the state department of health, who has analyzed all Charle voix water states that it is perfectly safe. Stories of By Elmo r Great Scouts w.m , "Western Newspaper Union. HOW ISRAEL PUTNAM OUT WITTED THE INDIAN "BEAR" In 1758, while General Lyman's army was encamped near Fort Edward, N. Y., during the French and Indian war, sentinels at one outpost began to disappear mysteriously. Night after night a soldier was posted there and the next morning could not be found. Only the bravest men In the army were selected for this post. General Lyman gave orders for them to call out "Who goes there?" three times, If they heard any noise, and then If no answer cume, to fire. But the disappearances continued until his men were panic- stricken and refused to take such a dangerous station. At last Israel Putnam, a member of Major Rogers' rangers, volunteered to go on guard at that place and solve the mystery. One hot summer night he heard a rustling In the leaves near-by. The sounds were those of an animal scuttling about on the ground for food and, peering through the darkness, Putnam saw by the faint sturllght a huge creature, which he recognized as a bear, slowly sham bling toward him. Something In the bear's gait aroused the scout's suspicion. Putnam obeyed the general's orders. He challenged three times and then fired. A loud groaning and struggling noise followed and when the scout rushed forward he found the bear In Its death agony. Then he turned the animal over. En closed In the shaggy skin, still clutch ing a tomahawk but stone dead, lay a giant Indian. The mystery was solved. The other sentinels had believed It was a real bear they heard and allowed the dar ing warrior to get near enough to use his tomahawk before they learned their mistake. No more sentinels dis appeared. Some time after this event, Putnam was captured by the Indians, who started to burn hlra at the stake. Just as the flames began to scorch his buck skin garments, a heavy rain began to fall and put out the fire. The sav ages collected more dry wood and again began the torture. But again they were foiled. A French officer appeared upon the scene, dashed through the ring of flame, kicked the blazing brands right and left and released the scout, telling the Indians that he must send Putnam to Montreal to be questioned by Gen eral Montcalm. Putnam was held In Canada until an exchange of prison ers allowed him to return to his home and he lived to become a famous gen eral In the Revolution. HEALTH HINTS FOR PLANT LIFE GIVEN Valuable tips on plant sanitation to prevent parasitic diseases and rotting of farm produce have been issued by Dr. Q. II. Coons, plant pathologist at M. A. C. If they are heeded In time, many a threatened tree, may be kept alive and many a bushel of vegetables kept from rotting. Following are the notes prepared by Or. Coons: The raspberry patch should be 'caned' to remove all dead and badly diseased stalks. This is more or less of a sanitary measure and it gives the sound canes a chance. , "In the fall pruning of apple orchards the farmer has a chance to rid the trees of cankered limbs. , In deciding what cuts are to be made, the vigor and freedom from disease of a limb should be borne in mind. "Any pruning cut exposes the heart wood of the the tree and opens the way for heart rot fungi. As soon as the cut surfaces are dry they should be painted with a white lead paste (not zinc white). Common barn paint or ready mixed nouse paint has small protecting value for pruned surfaces. The pruning cut should be made flush with the main branch. The heal ing of wounds comes about from a 'callus growth from the cambium. If stubs are left the projecting parts pre vent the healing. Hold-over cankers of fire blight can be located by the blighted twigs on which the leaves have withered and dried. The canker is at the base of the twig. These should be located and removed. Through winter eradication coupled with vigilance in the early part of the growing season will control fire blight. "Ventilation is necessary in the storage cellar if disastrous rotting of the produce is to be avoided. Vege table pits should be provided with a straw floor and a straw or crate chim ney. Black heart of potatoes and black specking of cabbage are due to lack of oxygen in the storage room. A cleanup of all trash from the pre ceding crop should take place promptly in the garden. Many fungi survive the winter in such trash. Sanitation is the gardener's greatest protection. "In the field sanitation is obtained by crop rotation. Those who followed corn with corn, beets with beets, or beans with beans have this year found that disease has been one important factor in their farming. Aside from its relations to soil fertility, crop rotation is necessary to avoid disease intensifi" cation. "Seed corn is best chosen in the field rather than from the bin, but must come from stalks which mature naturally and not prematurely as a result of root disease."

The recent demonstrations in poultry culling, conducted by E. C. Foreman, throughout the county were well at tended. Mr. Foreman showed how five things should be learned about any hen. These five things were as follows: 1. Is the hen laying? 2. Is she going to continue to lay, or Is she about through for the year? 3. How many eggs has she layed during the past season? 4. How many times has she been broody or taken a rest? 5. Does she lay three eggs a week or six eggs a week? When these questions are answered. a person has a good idea whether or not a hen is a profitable one to keep in his flock. All those that heard and saw Mr. Foreman were able to answer these questions with a reasonable de gree of accuracy and we feel that his work was very profitable to the county. me JJetter Sires Demonstration train which arrived at Boyne City,' Aug. 12, was enthusiastically received. Two good bulls were left in the county; one with T. S.Tunison at Bay Shore and one with Albert Bathke and Frank Fox of Horton Bay.
