When the yellow stars go down,
Out in the gleaming, golden
Tired Angers, thin and brown,
Turn from labor unto rest ;
And the solemn hush of night
Soothes euch world-worn, weary soul
Brings fresh vigor for the fight
That comes to all who face the goal.
When the yellow stare come up
From beds of matchless, molten gold,
Fragrant rose and butter-cup
In joy serene their leaves unfold ;
And down each pathway marked by God
These orbs of beauty wander by,
Flinging kisses to the daw-wet sod
Gems of night that blaze on high !

Your Own Breakfast Food
I wish, to mtse.this question:
Why' cannot the farmer who
raises his own cor,n and wheat
make his own cereals? Have you
ever stopped IdX-th.ink of the
price you receivedor your grain
and th.2 price "you pay whetf'yim
buy back that same corn and
wheat in small packages, with
much of the nourishment taken
out in the process of manufac
ture? Is it any wonder living is
high? There is no better cereal
in tho world than popcorn eaten
with cream. We have a little
hand mill, that cost $3.75, with
t which we grind our flour for
bread and crack the wheat for
cereal. Rye may be ground in
with the wheat for bread, and
corn can be ground into the rich
est looking corn meal you ever
saw. Whole wheat sliould be
soaked over night, then cooked
until the grains crack open.
We eat both with chopped dates
instead of sugar. Since I have
been eating whole products my
appetite is good and that gnaw
ing feeling of hunger never any
more bothers me. Well do I re
member the time when I was
faint with hunger before twelve
These mills may be had in dif
ferent sizes, to be run by water
power, electricity, etc., and one
in a community could keep the
whole neighborhood in whole
some cereals, at an extremely
low cost.

From seven to eight hundred

School building,
The program will begin Thurs

entertainment. Practically all
day Friday will be devoted to

Teaching" and "New Conditions

President's annual address on
"Needed Legislation;" an ad
dress by President Griffith, of the

er ford; followed by Ira L. Caine,

The production of agricultural
wealth this year reaches the as
tounding figures of nearly nine
billions of dollars. In the year
1900 the total figures were only
a little over four billion. This
vast percentage of increase is
far in excess of the increased
acreage brought under cultiva
tion, which proves greater yealde
per acre by improved method.
