1. Provide plenty of clean, dry nests for your hens.

5. Market your eggs twice a week if possible.
6. Don't sell eggs which are found in a stolen nest.

8. Don't keep eggs near oil, onions etc., as they readily absorb
9. Don't sell eggs known to be bad or which have been in an

Three Acres Plowed in July Are
W.rth Five Plowed in
Bury tin1 Hessian Fly—Entire
neighborhoods must light at the
same time to win. Late sowing
is a help, but will not prevent
April hatching even in the latest
seeded wheat. Plowing under
and dragging is the only way.
What to Do Right Now.
Cut the wheat high, above the
second .joint, wherever possible.
Remove the grain from the field j
and stack it somewhere else. The
Fly is now in the resting stage, |
and the safest way and only sure
plan is for every farmer to plow ■
every acre deeply and thorough- |
ly within two weeks after har I
vest, turning under the stubble |
completely and then drag early. 1
This will fix Mr. Fly.
Team work is necessary. Teach
the school children to look for
the Fly and report it at every
stage. Appoint a Captain in each
school district, who should be
the best wheat grower in the
This early complete plowing
will not only reduce the Fly, but
will be a great benefit to next
year's crop, ft does not let the
field dry out after harvest, and
gets it ready to hold all the mois-
ture, which may be needed before
spring. It is said that other
things being equal, three acres
plowed in July are worth five
acres plowed in September.
We feed 50,000,000 bushels of
good wheat to the Hessian Fly
every year, to say nothing of
what it costs us to feed our
chinch bugs and other pests, anil
have only ourselves to blame.
There is only one subject in
which al farmers agree, and
that is, high taxes. They want
pay for sheep killed by the neigh-
bor's dogs. Why not ask pay
for sheep killed by the neigh-
bor's Hessian Flies?
Get together. Every neighbor-
hod should have a Farmers' Club
and appoint a Hessian Fly com-
ways the time for beginning the
reform is right NOW. Don't
wait for your neighbor to make
the start. It is your problem. Of
course you, yourself do not ileal
in slander, but by listening to
scandal or bv repeating it, even
without approval, you spread
contagion. The best course al
ways is to seek good in others,
but the next best thing is to de-
ter the dealers in unwholesome
uess, and the way to do this is to
deprive them of an audience; for
unless it is listened to, scandal
dies us soon as it is horn. \N'o

And Who Was the Lucky Man?
Here is an item from the Far-
iningtoii, Mo., Times that is lia-
ble to cause an exodus of elig-
ible young men to the "show-
nic * state to see if there are any
more at home like her. "The
bride is a young lady of won-
drous fascination and remarka-
ble attractiveness, for with man-
ners as enchanting as the wand
of a siren and a disposition as
sweet as the odors of the flowers,
and spirits as joyous as the ear
ruling as birds, and mind as bril
liant as the tresses that glitter
ingly adorn the brow of winter,
and with the heart as pure as
dewdrops trembling on violets,
she will make the home of her
husband a paradise of enchant-
ment , like the lovely home of
her girlhood, where the heaven-
toned harp of marriage, with
its devotion and f^nd endearment

that ever thrilled senses with

It Is a Personal Problem
There is a very old proverb
that half the worhf delights in
slander and the other half in be-
lieving it. It is our most popu-
lar sin. We realize its wicked-
ness and yet we keep on endur-
ing it. We swat the fly, but we
.tolerate ''soft-buzzing slander,
silky moths that eat an honest;
name." Surely there is a great
opportunity for improvement
here Moreover, it is a personal
matter. We can all help by turn-
ing away or by turning the con-
versation instead of encouraging
those who speak ill of others. Al-
What a great relief it is to the man
with money to know that no misman-
agement of a bank can affect the secur-
ity of his Savings. Ihe Hennessey
State Bank offers in the Guarantee
Law a splendid protection for the de-
positors. Although failures have oc-
curred involving millions of dollars, all
the depositors of failed banks have al-
ways secured every dollar of their own
on demand. Isn't that a pretty fair
record from the depositor's standpoint?
We will extend any accommodation
that any other well managed bank will
and in addition we give you Absolute
Protection for your money you de-
posit with this bank. We guarantee
