FARM I1UKEAU NOTES
(Ity County Extension Agent, Henry
,. II. FmiFch
A short time ago 1 heard a man of
national repute deliver an able talk
on "The Low Cost cf Thinking." For
Ihc past 2 J months farmers have been
doing more than their usual amount
of thinking some good and some no
doubt not eo good. There Is evidence
that the sane minded ones have ar
rived at the conclusion that in the
Jong run the successful man works
out his own salvation; and he who can
think clearest; work the hardest and
produce more or better materials, or
both, is most successful. It is also
evident that most people now realize
that the high prices of war times are
last and profits (if there arc any)
must bo figured out on a new scale.
Many lectures and programs of
thrift were delivered and practiced
during the war. We don't need lec
turing to practice economy now. It
it forced upon us; nnd whether we
like it or not we must take it and
make the best of it.
There are still many wastes upon
farms; nnd one of the most glaring
ones is that of feed and space given
over to cattle that fail to pay their
board when milked and to mnke
profitable gains if fed for beef. To
many inferior animals appear on our
markets. Many calves that are kept
to maturity should have been slaught
cred for veal. It would indeed have
to be an inferior Shorthorn bull whose
first crop of even twenty calves would

Honable that now is a logical lime
jf-ir onr to cnns'dpf an investment in
quality. The easiest way to a market
is to improve the quality of the com
modity marketed. The logical way to
improve the quality of moikct cattle
is through the use of a good pure
bred bull and a few carefully selected
pure bred ows for foundation herd.
The Sni-n bar demonstration car
ried on at Sni-a-bar Emms, Grain
Valley, Missouri, pro -cuts many val
uable and striking lessons. I'cihaps
rone of the most valuable is
is the improvement worked by the
mating of pure bied Shorthorn bull-
with common cows.
In 11J14, four steers from common
cows sired by common bulls sold for
$2.25 below top of the market. In
1916, 20 steers fed the same a? the
! common ones out of cows of similar
quality and breeding but sired by
pure bred Shorthorn bulls topped the
inarket. From November 3, 1914, to
May 11, 1921, fifteen different sales
of common, first cross, and first and
second cross steers arc reported from
Sni-a-bar. The two shipments of
commonly bred steers sold for 60
cents and $2.23 below the top of the
market. Three shipments of first
cross steers sold from 50 cents below
top to 5 cents below top. Ten ship
ments of first and second cross steers
sold from 15 cents to S3.-10 above
other top sales.
Does quality pay? Think. Im
prove your own market by improving
the quality of our cattle.'

HE WON A I'll EXCESS
"NCK upon a time there was a
princess so beautiful that dozens
of suitors came to her father's court
to seek her hand. The lrlug was
rich and powerful, but he loved his
daughter so much that he let her have
lier own way iu everything.
Jem was an orphan lad who cleaned
the pots and pans In the Kitchen. His
post was mi humble one, but Jem was
Btrong, bravo and determined to make
lilmself something In the world.
That pvenlns the palace was full of
music, light and willy dressed lords
anil ladles. All the prlmvs who came
courting wore gorgeous suits, and so
many wore there that their lioises
stood four deep In the stables.
Behind a big palm Jem hid himself
nnd looked in wonder at the scene of
wngnlllcence. As midnight sounded
Hlo Post Was Humble.
there wns'.t lnust heard from without,
a noise as of tramping feet grow loud,
the doors of the hi;; ballroom Hew
apart mid there on the threshold stood
u great brown dwarf. Ills rs were
green, his facu wrinkled, and his long,
black hair hung In curls around his
huge head. ,
"I have come for my bride!" he
Ahquted in a loud voice. "I am tliu
king of the Thousand Isk. and no
liimiau dare bravo my power. Let
the princess como with me and maKo
no resistance, lest I destroy this whole
castle nt once with my men."
The king was slinking with rage.
"Arrest and cast Into prison that
Impudent clown," he cried to the
"Put out the lights," screamed tho
dwarf. ".Seize the princess nnd bear
lier off to my cur." . , ,
At the foot of the marble stairs
waited a golden car drawn by four
winged horses and Into this the dwarf
Not a soul had moved to save her,
for all were stunned by tho sudden
ness of tho attack and blinded by the
darkness. Yet one there was who
kept his senses, and that was Jem.
for us the dwnit' bore the princess by
him, the lad followed closely behind,
and hid himself behind the high beat
which the others occupied.
In another instant the horses were
cleaving the sky with their wings and
leaving behind the castle, from which
they could hear a great tumult and
The princes were running about
madly seeking the one who had stolen
the princess, and the king sat ns If

searched bljih and low, but not

toning Par away, a mere sped; In the
mldnluht sky. the dwarf is urging
h.s horses to their home In the crest
of the great Black mountain, where
no one could scale the walls to rescue
Jem held on silently. The rush of
air made his head swim, but he
wrapped his anus and legs nrouud
tho seat posts, and was carried safely
along with the princess. About dawn
tho horses stopped on a rock and tho
dwarf took tho princess Into a stone
chamber, which stood a thousand feet
nboe the valley below.
"You are my captive," salil tho
dwarf as he placed the filghtened girl
within the room. "When you consent
to be my brldo you shall be freid."
Then he went out, closing the door
and locking it fast behind him but
ho did not notice that In a dark closet
in the ball nearby Jem had secreted
himself so as to be able to aid tho
prli.cess. Hut what could he do
here, hundreds of miles away from
homo and tho princess secured within
huge stone walls?
While the dwarf lay sleeping Jem
went outside beneath the window of
tho princess and saw there a hugo
hammock swinging from the trees-. Ho
called 'softly to her to leap out. Slio
stood a moment on the window, then
spuing down. The soft, firm folds of
silk held nnd she rolled to the ground
unbanned. Quickly Jein ran to the
stable and hurno .i'il Hie winded
horses to the glided car. The printess
leaped In and Jem took his place be
By dawn tho car alighted In tho
courtyard of tho princess' homo. And
the next night there was a wedding In
which Jem was tho groom and tho
princess the happy bride.
