people who are needing this article
a great deal of concern. The supply
has to be gotten from Ashland and
with the capacity way beyond the

FARMER'S WIFE GIVES ORDERS
A peculiar, as well as amusing in
cident occured in the country, when
a certain farmer's wife endeavered to
introduce a new custom anions; farm
er's wives at threshing time. She
tried to evade cooking for threshers
by trying to persuade the farmers
of a threshing company to take their
own hired men home with them it
dinnertime so as to emininate the
work of preparing big dinners. Fail
ing to do so, she reluctantly prepared
the dinner for the men who wen
threshing at her home, but upon no
ticing that a certain farmer who had
ignored her proposed plan was not
present at her home, becoming an
gered hastened to call this farmer up
and learn why he did not appear.
The conversation that was heard over
the party line is restricted from print,
hut needless to say it was very amus
ing to the eaves-droppers. The farm
er bravely held his own. hut insisted
that he be given the privilege of eat
ing at home with his own dear wife,
but wished that she would kindly
permit his hired men and horses to
be fed. But when the wrath of the
said lady continued, the farmer
sought defense by politely telling her
that she had better own a threshing
outfit, then she could give orders.
However, the threshing proceeded a
few hours later and no more spats
have been flashed over the wire, to
the great dissapointment of those on
the party line.
