Love is just two things after each other. Jud Tunkins says he loves music, and that's why he wouldn't buy his boy a fiddle. :o: Another dreadful effect, however, that is likely to come from kissing, is marriage. o : o When a girl starts talking about rents coming down it is time to give up or go home. :o: The only noL-e some men make in the world comes from their unex ploded theories. :o: According to divorce figures, this- is either the land of the freed or the home of the brave. Probably that story about a . New York farmer who dug up . bar silver worth $4,000 on his farm is just an other attempt of eastern interests to keep the farmers of that state from coming to Nebraska where soil is really productive. :o: The hoDeful young heir to the Dodge millions seems to be occupied principally in getting himself out of scrapes that his motor car has got him into. Evidently he has been put- tine that "Dodge Brothers" motto into effect too seriously. ro: If U isn't one thing it's another, For a while we suffered for lack f Turkish tobacco on account of la bor difficulties in Virginia, and now we find ourselves up against a sham rock shortage on St. Patrick's day, due to a short silk crop in Japan. :o: The official .announcement that Premier Lloyd George is going to the Genoa conference seem to settle two points. One is that there is to be a Genoa conference and tho other is that the hopes of the coalition rebels that tire premier would resign were premature. o : o We read a real sad story in one of the papers where train passen gers were snowed in with no heat, and all night long they listened to a girl "play a violin with fingers numbed with cold." A girl like that had grit and so djd the passengers who listened. THE COST OF PEACE soon as Americans got into the world war. It is not American nature to sit in the mud impatiently for two or three years. Americans, most nervous race so far in history, want constant action. They either go forward or are car ried off the battlefield feet first. The War Department now wisely issues orders fo corps commanders, that are to be trained primarily to attack the enemy instead of merely 'holding their ground. There is a success tip that you may turn into money. All business, all participation in the great industrial machine of civ ilization, is a form of warfare. You see the law of "survival of the fittest" working in trade associ ations. Jobbers or manufacturers band together together in good-na tured fellowship to accomplish cer tain ends. Easy to Peace is costing France half as much as being at war. France's total national debt is $.28,000,000,000 francs, an increase! of nearly a half since the war end ed. Her entire national wealth is es timated at 400,000,000,000 francs. She is mortgaged 82 per cent of her face value. Cheron warns the French senate that by 1930 France's debt will be 425,000,000,000 francs. Debt will exceed national wealth. France, insisting on arming to the teeth, especially with submarines is grasping a cast iron life preserver. Now quit saying that you don't get enough for your tax money. We have just learned that any citizen can write to his congressman and get, free of charge, a pamphlet on "The Economic Value cf North American Skunks."

Wagelius, brilliant young chemist and psychic investigator of Brooklyn, N. Y. A tlaring scheme to peek behind the mysterious curtain of death oc curred to him. Locked in his labratory, young Wagelius rigged up an apparatus that dipped an anesthetic drug into an inhaler attached to hi3 nostrils. This had an automatic regulator. Each ruccessivo experiment. Wag elius went one drop of drug nearer to death. Then, coming out of his stupor, he wrote down his experiences. ! "I am on the verge of discovering the great secret of the hereafter," he told his friends. Finally the drug carried him be yond the curtain showed him what lies after death. But death is a one way door. No on will ever know what Wagelius discovered. He has been buried. The mystery of death has been a matter of deep -thought by every person 1hat ever lived. Haller, great philosopher and physician, watched hispulso on hi3 death bed, hoping to be able to speak a message an instant after death claimed him. His last words were, "My friend3 the artery ceases to beat." His voice was stilled before be could impart the secret of the beyond. Harvey, discoverer of the circula tion of blood, also kept a close watch on his pulse when he was dying in 1657. He knew the exact instant he died but was unable to get a mes- j sage back to the doctors grouped n H t-H 1 H I I MM f H M"t 5 J CASS CO. FARM ? BUREAU NOTES J t 2 M 1 i I 1 H t "M-Hl MUM f n T. B.

Probably because they go to sleep with a conviction -that they are cer tain to awaken in the morning, while death closes the door on mor tal consciousness and opens the way into the unknown. People have an instinctive fear of what they do not understand. The savage is terrified at the explorer who can remove his glass eye. But explain the glass eye to the savage and he loses his fear. Our ancestors of 500 years ago would die of fright if they could come to life and see our movies, elec Treating Potatoes for Scab The most effective method is to treat the potato before it is cut. Uae one pint of formaldehyde to 30 gal lons of water and let soak for one hour. Spread out so they will dry, and then cut to plant.
