Phi flfawlison l*a\ ilion Satin- CHRIS RENSCH OBSERVED CON- TRADK TIO.N JLX BIRD LIFE. Chris Rensch is not too old yet to notice many things in nature that es i- cape the eyes of most of us. Not long ago Mr. Rensch saw a neatly built nest in the forked franches of one of the big trees in his yard. He also observed hovering around that snug straw and stick home a pair of blackbirds scouting round with sort of proprietary airs. There also came to that tree some patronizing, robins that engaged the birds of coal black coats in a terrific kind of struggle for possession. Ev ery artifice in bird wisdom made use of by the robins in order to drive away the enemy that is none to scrupulous in principle to devour By and by it began to develop that the robins were getting the best of the situation and had managed to drive out the blackbirds. He dis covered tiny heads peeping over the edge of the flimsy abode and to his great, surprise they proved fce be young blackbirds. With a mothering affection the female robin watched with solicitous care over the air cradle and occa sionally she winged her way nooks where fat grubs and worms burrow ed under leaves, returning with reg ularity to stuff into the gapping mouths the results of her foraging. Mr. Rensch stated that all is going well in that small habitation and the faster parents are rearing their little group of gloss backs most success fully. with the exception of one or two that died by accident. This would make a good story for Ernest Seton-Thompson, or, again, ine near the Garfield school. Mrs. R. I.

Nine township meetings were held during the month of May and one township picnic. The total attend ance was about 1,400. Meetings were held in the following townships: Badus, (2 Rutland, Summit, Or land, Clarno, Le Roy, Chester, Her man and Wayne. The president and secretary of each township take charge of the meetings. Before any talks are given township business is discussed. After the program a good lunch is always served. Mr. P. J. Scarbro and Miss Kiethline, both of Brookings, were present at the Her man township picnic, May 26th, and both appeared on the program. At most of the township meetings Mr. L. G. Atherton gives a most interest ing talk on the Farm Bureau. The aim is to have each township work out its own problems, and be able to show results at the end of the year. Road Signs. The first four days of the month were spent in putting up steel road signs over the county. These signs were ordered last fall under the di rection of the County Commission ers. They are shotgun proof and give direction and mileage to vari ous towns. The work is not vet com pleted. Livestock Improvement. The Farm Bureau office assisted the Lake County Shorthorn Breeders' association in compiling and sending out a list of 51 Shorthorns for sale ranging in price rrom $50 to $350. A list of 24 Hol.-jt-ins was Imewise sent to dairymen over the county.

Twenty-three farm Bands were sent out during the month at $35.00. If each farmer who secured a farm hand through the Farm Bureau of fice was charged $5.00 (as is done by many labor agencies) the county office would this spring have taken in $1,5 40.00, and by the end of the year it would be a much larger sum. Soy Beans. The following farmers have put in soy beans this spring: D. Currie, J. L. Sunde, Jim O'Connell, Ralph At kinson, L. C. Shroeder, J. E. Payne, Fred McNeil, John Trotter, Perle Beckett, A.

This year it ha# been $35.00 straight through. In 1920 harvest wages were $5.00 per day. So far one township has voted harvest wages at $2.00 per day, and another voted $2.50.
