next month. He sailed some time
ago on his last trip as a member of
the crew on the ship Van Steuben,
which will be released after tne pres

boat is docked in the French port,
the crew will be given a (en days'

The town of Avoca is democratic

Thousands Of Farmers
To Keep Books
Through State' Bankers' Associa
tion thousands of farm record books
produced by the university depart
ment of rural economics will be dis
tributed over the state for the cal
endar year beginning January 1.
Ten thousand of these books were
used by farmers this year, and they
were declared to be of much value,
especially in determining income
tax. The book is the result of sev
eral years work and investigation
by the university and is said to rep
resent the best of its kind so far
produced. It is simple and yet com
plete, providing for a record of all
receipts and expenditures, together
with a farm inventory at the be
ginning and end of the year. Thru
its use a farmer knows his exact
worth and his profit or loss for the
Young Hens Lay Best.
It seldom pays to keep hens for
laying after they are ; more than
two and half years old, -say univer
sity extension poultrymen. ThiF
may not be true of Leghorns but i
generally so of most other breeds.
Hens older than this may return
some profit but younger hens will
return greater profit. In this day of
high feed prices, flocks must be
culled 4 the non-layers and poor
layers and only those kept which
produce the most profit.
Silage Zept 'Ten Years.
A silo filled ten years ago was re
cently opened in Australia and thr
contents found In excellent condi
tion, according to the National Woo?
Grower. The silage was eaten by
stock with great relish.
National Egg Laying Contest.
To promote the breeding of high
laying strains of standard-bred poul
try, the Nebraska agricultural ex
periment station is conducting what
is known as the Nebraska national
egg laying contest: Any breeder of
standard-bred stock may -enter teD
pullets and the state will keep 8
trapneet record of their laying.
Monthly reports , will be made and
published in farm and poultry jour
nals. The records will be of adver
tising value to breeders, and in ad
dition help them to establish a well
standardized flock. Entries must be
made before October 1, and those
planning o take advantage of this
opportunity should communicate
with the Farm Bureau.
Kanred Wheat Giving Satisfaction
Dodge country farmers growing
Kanred wheat report good satisfac
tion, according to L. C. Christie,
county agricultural agent. Warren
Mulliken had a yield of 25 bushels,
or 5 bushels more than his other
wheat. The straw ws sti filer and
the wheat stood up better. S. W.
Peters reported his Kanred, wheat
superior to his other wheat. Kanred
wheat was developed at Kansas
state agricultural college and is
rather extensively" grown in Kansas.

The patriotic towns of Cedar

Louisville, sure put one across when
hev celebrated the returning of the
joys from the services in the array

Thursday, with games, addresses,

'mm the auto barrel race to the
Durine the afternoon of Thurs-
lay Judge J. T. Begley made an ad
Iress at the carnival grounds Avhich
was intensely listened to by a large
lumber of people, of the assembled
'housands Davinff homage t.the
Ighting boys of that portion oi Cass
county. Following his address was
;ome races on Main street, which
were inteersting to a great degree.
The first was the girls race, of
which there were some eight entries,
ind all good sprinters, some a little
faster, but all such as - could step
ilong at no slow gait.
The race was for fifty yards, and
Irst money was'taken by Miss Lydia
Stohlmann, who could run like a
leer, while she was only a foot and
i fraction ahead of Miss Esther
Hartman. $3.00 going to the first
nd $2.00 to the second. The other
half dozen were within two yards of
he winners when they crossed the
line, and all may well feel satisfied
with their speed.
The Boys Race.
This was for 75 yards, and was
participated in by about ten coming
American voters, now Americans in
the most intensive sense of the
term. Glen Ward secured the first
money, while Clifford McDonald was
the winner of the second prize,
three and rwo dollars Irespectively.
Eight more panting, straining
youths came across the line like, an
avalanche, but only a few feet be
hind those who took first place.
The Fat Men's Race.
It was originally thought that
they would have to weigh over two
hundreds pounds in order to enter,
but on account of all fat men hav
ing to work to their limit, the fig
ure was lowered. There waa four
tp start, but as one did not get away
good at the start, he dropped out,
and another on'e dropped in the road
just before the line was reached.
This left but two to finish. Wm.
Ossenkop, the winner of the first
prize came up the street like a Rock
Island passenger, winning the race
as clean as a hound's tooth, while
Charles Vogtman. while running a
good race, was no match for the
winner. They respectively received
three and two dollars for thir burst
a chance, and many availed them
selves. The start looked like a flock
of black birds arising, but the fin
ish found the line filled with a swift
ly moving line of humanity, all just
within reach of the line, but a sec
ond late for E. D. Reed had copped
the first three dollars, while Marion
Ossenkop had the second but were
breathing so hard they could not
give their names for some time.
The Soldiers Race.
This was for three prizes instead
cf two, they being $5.00. $3.00 and
$2.00. The soldier boys ran one
hundred yards, and the way those
boys came up the stretch reminded
one of how weread of them going
over the top, and their way of get
ting there showed , that nothing
could stop them. The winners were.
Will Gobelman. first. Harvey Koop,
second, and Harold Koop, third.
Women Driving Nails.
Then followed a contest peculiar
in itself.' in that it imposed on wo
men a man's occupation, and expect
ed her ta succeed in it as well.
It was the driving of nails. The
ladies showed that they, were able
to drive nails, and the contest was
won by Mrs. Paul Fhelps and the
second prize going to Mrs Roy
lilunt. They sure drove home the
This was a sample of the enter
tainment of the afternoons. Dur
