Knroute to Aberdeen recently just as we passed the International Harvester company farm, we noted a tield of peculiar pegetition. It was something we hadn't seen be fore and we asked the man seated with us what it was. He said he didn't just know, but he thought it waü weeds. The next day in com ing home we happened across a better informed traveler. He told us that the field was hemp, used iu the manufacture of binding twine. The field is exceptionally luxuriant and will no doubt make a splendid crop, and if it proves to lie of good quality, it will be worth thousands of dollars. It stands some three feet high and we were informed that it was worth from §130 to $150 a ton, We don't know whether this will prove a practical crop for this coun try, but in case it should prove such it might be worth looking in to.—Groron Independent, The publishers of the Huron State Spirit have just won a case in court which is of considerable interest to the printing fraternity. In the test case they were awarded a judgement on back subscription amounting to eight dollars and the costs were added almost doubling the amount. There are a lot of dead beats who will refuse to pay unless a judgement is returned against them, and while it is a bother, still there are a great many newspapers who will find it neces sary to take similar action rather than lose a large sum due on back subscriptions. There are no feder al rulings which exempt a man from paying his subscription Two of the robbers that burglar ized The Big Store at Fairmount Saturday night a week ago have been caught. The robbers made a clean get away, but being of the thirsty kind, after selling some of the goods in Vehlen went to Lake. Citv and proceeded to get soused.

One honk of the horn means "cross," two honk means "stand still, I'll get you coming hack, three honks get your ol' ice wagon out of the way, A dozen honks, help I'm out of gasoline. The automobiles should pass on either side of each other, rather than on a direct line thru each other. Autos should always stop abruptly for washouts or burned fuses. It is not proper for an auto to turn the corner on two wheels. Before an auto turns turtle all the passenger should get out The number of a car should be 6699 and should be worn upside down. For the benefiit of the man be hind the thoughtful autoist will mix perfume with his gasoline. It is considered very bad form for a man driving an auto to try to drive between the headlights of another auto. This is liable to seriously damage the crank handle. If your auto resents being crank ed and has a tendency to backfire, sneak up on it and crank it when it isn't looking. If you drive faster than 60 miles an hour you are liable to muss up the right of the way. A woman driving a car is entitled to the right of way. If you don't give it to her she will take it any way. After beiug allowed to move about without handcuffs, William Huck, an escaped prisoner of the Montana penitentiary, took advantage of the opportunity and escaped from the train and authorities, who were bringing him back to the Montana pen.

Make Sunday Work Easier Sunday is often the busiest day of the week for many housewives, especially on the farm, on account of Sunday visiting and big Sunday I I dinners—thus is the dav of rest de» stroyed. Miss Dil la Wimple, State college extention specialist in home economies, suggests methods of lightening the Sunday tasks for wo-' men, as follows: Sunday visiting is probably bet-, ter than no visiting, but as people grow wiser they will plan time for meeting their friends during the week, leaving the Sabbath for a' quiet family day, and the house wife will learn that she can add to its enjoyment more by her own presence in the family circle than by any table delicacy which keeps her in the kitchen. I Until we change considerably, however, Sundav dinners and Sun day company must be provided for, and the following ideas may be helpful: Plan to do no cooking on Sunday unless it be to warm a prepared dish or make a hot drink. In sum mer serve most things cold, on the porch or under the trees, on paper plates and cups if possible, to do away with dish washing. Every body enjoys a picnic dinner. Serve the dinner cafeteria style, i. e., put the food and dishes out on a table and let each one serve himself. This saves many steps for the housewife. An indoor picnic is as much fun as an outdoor one, and even less work.
