Every fell our exchanges print nu
merous recipes for the cure of corn
stalk disease, but no one ever yet in
our knowledge found them to be of
any benefit. Here however, is a cure
all for tlie disease: On some conven
ient hill, if you are fortunate enough
to have one. dig a cistern as wide and
deep as you want to. Cement this in
the same manner as thougii you
wished it to hold water. Get a chop
per such as is generally used for pre
paring ensilage. When your corn is
hard the husks beginning to turn a
little brown but the sulks still green
cut whole blamed coni field, chop it
up and dump it into the cistern,
spreading it around carefully so that
St will pack down evenly. Put a floor
over tiie liole and a roof over the
w hole. When winter come draw this
fodder out with a windlass or a horsa
and feed it to the stock. Everything
will eat it and prefer it to alfalfa of
any other of the best feeds. And you
wil' thrive and such a thing as corn
sulk disease will be unknown: Fur
thermore the cost of corn'husking
will be saved and your corn field will
feed out 4o per cent more than it does
now. it will cost you some work in
tlie early falf but you will liave a
bank account jn a few years if you
will follow this advice, where you
have an overdraft now. If you can’t
put your silo down then put it. up
using some of tlie many weM-knywn
makes.' But by all mean$ have one
of some sorfc. If you ure going'to
put it down in a hill.it wMl be a good
winter job this winter.—Ord Quiz.
A Parental Duty
William Hawley Smith said in part
of a lecture pertaining to schools os
"You will go out three times a day
to see how the hogs are getting along
but you will not go into the school
from September to June to see how
the children are getting along: and
yet the children are ail that makes
life worth living. There is no power
that wields so great an influence on
the minds of your children, as the
public school, and what is done there
you ought to know. Gentleman, I
know vou are busy, but you should
have a little time to loaf in the school
room. Ladies, you are busy, but take
your work and call on the schools;
go and sit down with. the teachers
and children. It wiu.do them good,
and do you good. Don’t go to criti
cise, or to annoy them, but go in a
friendly way. It will be worth while.”
How louse Red Cross Seals.
With the sale of Bed Cross Seals In
progress in almost.#very state and
city of the United states, The Na
tional Association for the Study and
Prevention of Tuberculosis is issuing
the following instructions to its fifty
thousand paid and volunteer workers
engaged in selling the seals, and to
the millions who will buy these hol
iday stickers for use on.their Christ
The Post Office Department has
approved of the Bed Cross Seal design
and they may, therefore, in accordance
with order No. 5020 of the Post Office
Department “be affixed to the reverse
side of domestic mail matter.” Bed
Cross Seals must be placed only on
the back of letters and not on the
address side of any packages that are
going through the mail. They may
be placed anywhere on matter going
by express. As manv seals may be
used on the back of a letter or pack
age as may be desire. Everyone is
urged to use them liberally, since
every seal is a bullet in the fight
Care should L<e excercised in sending
merchandise through the mails not
to place seals over the string with
which the package is tied, since this
seals the package against inspection
and subject it to first-class postage
Red Cross Seals may be used also
on the revese side of mail matter
sent to Austria, Germany, Great
Britain and most of the British Col
onies except India and Australia.
Guatemala, Uruguay and Portugal
refuse to admit mail bearing non-pos
tage stamps. '. - -
Red Cross Seals may be used on the
face of checks, .on bills, on legal' doc
uments, andonany commercial paper.
These Christmas seals are not good
for postage. They will not carry any
mail matter, but any kind of mail
matter will carry them. The slogan
of the campaign this year is “A mil
lion for tuberculosis from Red Cross
Seals.-’ Every letter or parcel sent
out during the holiday season should
bear one or more seals.

Be a Cheerful Loser
Nobody has any sympathy for a poor I
loser. A man who enters into .the
uncertainties of running for public
office and cannot accept the result
gracefully and philosophically should '
not become a candidate at the begin-,
sing. The man who, after being de
feated, continues annoying his friends 1
and the public in common with his I
grouch, his fault-finding' his accusa- .1
tions and his sour grapes, disgusts -
his friends and drie§ up their sympa
thy and he then becomes a three-fold
loser Everybody admires a cheerful
loser—a man who is ready to accept
the public's choice in a spirit of man
liness anh broad-mindedness. He '
should remember that had the'people
•wanted him in preference to his op
ponent he would have been elected,
but to not accept the result manfully
only convinces those- who did vote
for him that they made a mistake in
doing so. A successfull candidate
can also become just as bad as the
defeated grouch by becoming egotis
tically officious and assuming the re
sponsibilities of Atlas, imagining that
the universe is now resting heavily
upon his sho.dders. Self-importance
has rained the usefulness of more
youngmen in official positions thun
any other shortcoming. Sometimes
they do not realize this fact, because
of the convicton of their own great
importance, until! they again appeal
to the public for vindication. Vind
ication come slowly to those whose
actions are inspired by malice, hatred
or revenge. The public takes un
kindly to itand never encourage those
who carry out the plans of t.hn^
protected by concealment. To be
manly is to be fair, honest and honor
able, extend the same official treat
ment to all men and play no political
tricks because the game is a long one
and is never finished. It is a two- |
