Black, SINKING SPRING Our public school here continued on through the thickest of the "flu" nnd also through an awful rainy week. Most schools have again re sumed, but .with a rather small at tendance. However, our attendance at Midway was much better than we expected.- The rainy weather was harder on us than was the "flu." Farmers are set to the rear in get ting their fall work done on account of so many late hard rains, but if the weather continues as it no wis for a few weeks corn will be in and wheat sowed. The tobacco raisers have made use of this damp spell in handling off their crops. " V 1 It would not pay any one living in this immediate locality to get sick now, for doctors are scarce and a long way off. W. E. Jones has been very poorly for several days, we learn with the "flu" and pneumonia, but we hear that he is improving. Place Your Orders Now for .

' , juTllC " -"- f OitfiMl Swift Unlike Topsy Swift & Company Has Not ''Jest Growed,, Swift & Company, in fifty years of well .ordered growth, has become one of the great national' services because it has ' learned to do something for the American people which they needed to have done for them, in the way in . which they preferred to have it done. ' It has met each successive demand, in the changing conditions of national life, , by getting good meat to increasing mil lions effectively, efficiently, economically, and expeditiously. The Swift & Company packing plants, i refrigerator cars, car routes, branch houses, organization, and personnel of today are the practical solutions, born of practical experience, to the food problems ' of half a century. Because of all these elements working in correlation and unison, Swift & Company is able to supply more and better meat to more people than would have been pos ; sible otherwise, at a net profit per pound of , meat so low (a fraction of a cent) that the consumer price is practically unaffected. Strip away any portion of this vast, smooth-running human machine, and you make a large part of the meat supply : uncertain, lose the benefit of half a century of fruitful experience, and scatter the intelligent energies of men' who have ' devoted a life work toward meeting the needs of a nation in one vital field. The booklet of preceding chapters in ihls story of the packing industry will be ma'! ?d on request to Swift & Company, , Union Stock Yards, Chicago, Illinois. Swift & Company, U. S. A. "I told Miss Sharp what you said about her club; that you would not join because it was too full' of stupid noboddies." "And what did she say?" "She said you were mistaken; that there was always room for one more." Boston Transcropt. A novel club for policeman con tains a singleshot pistol in its shaft. A horse has been known to live seventeen days without eating or drinking. ; Prays for Red Hair. , At a religious meeting In Pennsyl vania a youth asked the prayers of the pastor and people In order that , h might become redheaded. It seems that his hair was of a yellowlsh-whltc shade that was no color at all. He had heard the red heads were good scrap pers, and he was praying the Lord to give him red hair so that he might go forth to fight the kaiser. There's something In this, .too, and there's an Idea abroad that a regiment of auburn haired Amazons could put a crimp in the" Prussian quicker than a whole di vision of mere chocolate-haired men.
