Plenty of Acreage Secured for
Season's Pack, and Prospects
Look Very Bright
The public meeting at the Audi
torium last Friday evening was
not as well attended as hoped for,
but nevertheless considerable en
thusiasm was" shown.
Mr. Fred J. Strong, receiver
for the Michigan . Canned Food
Co., was present and explained to
those interested in the growing of
peas that if enough acreage could
be secured for this season the
Yale factory would operate this
A large acreage was taken and
Saturday seed was given out and
planted. And since that time
many more farmers have since
expressed their willingness to
put in a crop of peas, in fact more
acreage is in sight than can be
taken care of.
It is now an assured fact that
the Yale plant of the Michigan
Canned Food Co. will be a busy
place again during the season,
giving employment to a large
number of people.
Mr. Strong is a man well post
ed in the canning business, having
had considerable experience in
He owns two canning factories
in Wisconsin which are success
ful, and says that under compe
tent management there isn't a
question of doubt but that the

Why The Editor Left Town
Somebody sent the editor of
the Poketown Gazette a few bot
tles of home brew, relates the
Dallas Mirror. The same day he
received for publication a wed
ding announcement and a public
sale notice. Here are the results:
William Smith and Miss Mary
Anderson were disposed of at
public auction at my farm 1 mile
east of town. She wore a beau
tiful cluster of roses on her
breast and two white calves, be
fore a background of farm imple
ments too numerous to mention
in the presence of about CO guests
including 2 milch cows, G mules
and 1 bobsled. Reverend Jackson
tied the nuptial knot with 200
feet of hay rope, and the bridal
couple left on one good JoKn
Deere gang plow for an extended
trip with terms to suit the pur
chasers. They will be at home to
their friends with one baby bug
gy and a few kitchen utensils
after 10 months from date of
sale to responsible parties and
some 50 chickens."
The business man who makcj
the biggest success is the one
who advertises all the time.
MOTHER AND DAUGHTER
GATHERING FRIDAY EVE.
Nearly two hundred mothers
and daughters met at the Metho
dist Episcopal church on Friday
evening, May 12th at G:30, and
repaired to the dining room where
all were seated at tables decor
ated with runners of yellow
crepe paper and adorned with
bouquets of yellow tulips , and
white lilacs. The walls of the
room were tastefully decorated
with the same colors.
After the "invocation by Mrs.
F. D. Mumby all were quickly and
efficiently waited upon by a corps
of young men to a banquet in
three courses, while an orchestra
provided excellent music. Mr.
Drayton, Willard Gough and Ar
chie Ludington sang "That Won
derful Mother of Mine." Mrs. R.E.
Andreae opened the after-dinner
program with a happy little wel
coming speech, honoring mothers
by quoting that as "God could not
be everywhere, therefore He made
Mothers." She introduced the
principal speaker, Mrs. R.G. Bur
well, from Port Huron, who gave
an address on the subject 'Mother
Love and Daughter Worth."
There was splendid truth in
the many good things that Mrs.
Burwcll said, and man' thoughts
left for both mother and daugh
ter which should help to strength
en the love of the one and the
worth of the other.
Frances Andreae sang two
numbers, "Sing ! Sing ! Birds on
the Wing," and "The Little
Brown Owl", so pleasingly that
she was persuaded to give an
Doris Parks recited the quaint
little poem, "I dreamed that I
was Mother dear, and Mother
dear was I."
Mrs. A. T. Greenman spoke in
intelligently and charmingly on
the subject of "Daughter."
A selected piano solo by Nila
Holden was much appreciated.
This was followed by a reading
from Mrs. C. T. Peacock, who
gave Edgar Guest's "She othered
Five," and also responded with
another of Guest's poems.
The last number of the eve
ning's entertainment was given
by Neva Ostrander, who sang
(a) "Sunshine Song," and (b)
"The Mother Rose," with Mrs.

SHOWER FOR BRIDE ELECT

that of the shower given by Mrs.

came as a surprise to the reci

home of Mrs. Bricker, where she
found twenty-five young ladies,
married and single, busily work
ing upon holders and towels. She
was persuaded to stay as the
guest of honor, and a delightful
evening was spent.
The holders and towels were
presented to Miss Ulrich when
finished, together with a miscel

A dainty luncheon was served
by the hostess at ten o'clock.

Come in and get better ac
quainted. I may be too busy to
talk to you, but I'm never so busy
I can't listen to you. I want to
