uiiding Your Wealth!
A bank -works for you night and day, week after week, adding
cents to your dollars. Little by little the amounts grow till each
addition is a respectable sum.
Where does tte gain come from? Not from your pocket. Nor
from ours. It is the result of production. Money placed in a bank
is given an opportunity to work and to produce.
Thus a bank BUILDS your wealth.
Start with a small deposit if you will. Add to it when you
ean regularly if you can do so. It will not be long till you can
fairly see it grow.

Harvest is Near!
A few fields of Kanred wheat have
been inspected this week. Many
acres of Kanred wheat were raised
in Cass county this year.
Harvest is Here ;
We may be short of harvest hands
for a few days, but we believe they
will come soon.
Eradicating Lawn Ants j
To get rid of lawn ants etomolo-
gists of the United States Department
of Agriculture suggest drenching the
nests with boiling water or pouring
in a small quantity of kerosene. Sim
ilar treatment may be applied to
nests in or under walks. For large
ant nests, carbon disulphide poured
into the nests is recommended to
kill ants. The" fumes of carbon
disulphide have a very disagreeable
odor and are inflamable, but they
are not injurious to higher animals
in the open air.
The C. C. club met at the home
of Mrs. Oscar Domingo Monday af
ternoon. Several women brought
vegetables for canning and the af
ternoon was spent in canning same
by the cold pack method. One lot
of vegetables were processed in the
boiler. The pressure cooker was al
so demonstrated as it is used in can
ning fruits and vegetables. Most of
the women were much interested in
comparing the time saved in canning
with the pressure cooker. The vege
tables were processed in 40 to 45
minutes in the pressure cooker while
in the boiler two or three hours were
needed. Several kinds of rubbers
were tested. Good rubbers are very
important in canning. Any club or
persons interested in canning and
wishing assistance please write the
Farm Bureau. We have splendid
bulletins on cold pack canning of
fruits and vegetables. . I
The Triangle club, north of Ne
hawka, met at the home of Mrs. Ed ,

tiens on causes of flat sour, loss of ;
liquid from jars during sterilization,
etc., all of which were answered. At j
the close of the meeting the hostess ;
served dainty refreshments.
