Lack of moisture during the past
few weelcs has caused tho farmer and
cardcuer to become uneasy about the
products of his labor and the hot winds
which prevailed during Saturday "anil
Sunday have added to his already long
list of troubles, as unless rainfalls be
fore many days the corn crori will be
a complete failure. AVdbVding to re
ports from various parts of thntlstate,
published in the daily papers the mer
cury has climbed as high as 113, the
hottest weather known since 1890. As
the wheat crop was practically a fail
ure the farmer is depending on his
corn to feed and finance, but unless
the much desired moisture arrives In a
very short time he cannot expect any
results from that source.
As one would naturally suppose the
duties of providing for a family during
these days of strifo and high prices
would almost eliminute from the mind
of a man all thoughts of pleasuro
and plant therein improssions of .a
more serious nature, never the less, in
one instance, tho head of the house
not only has willingly accepted these
duties in a cheerful Jmannor, in the
past, hut has welcomed with joy the
arrival of another member in the
family circle, as on Tuesday night n
bouncing baby girl arrived at tho home
of Mr and Mrs. Floyd Turnure. While
Floyd Is a very busy man lie
finds time to receive congrotulatlons
from his friends, and when addressed
as "Papa" the light of lovo and parent
bliss beams upon his countcuance.

state paper fiom which we copied tho
numbers did not includo the one which
belongs to him. We are inclined to
hope that tho oho wo used is right, ns
wo should dislike to seo Brother Mc

work ho is doing in tho production of
a live, Interesting county paper, tho
only ono of his political persuasion in

Inggood service for our Undo Sam in
giving publicity to tho bulletins and
other information which the President,
tho Provost Marshal General and the
other officers of tho government arc
desirous of bringing to tho attention
of tho public. Should ho bo called to
tho ranks, however, we predict that he
will acquit himself in such u manner
as to bring credit upon both himself
and tho city whore ho has grown to
manhood. Wu should also be pleased
to see him returning with an addition
