Farmers Sowing Oats
F A. Mitchell who is now
traveling over the county lect-
uring schools on agricultural
subjects, reports that many
farmers are now sowing oats,
while others have finished. The
acreage this year will not be
so great as last year on account
of the higher price of seed. This
year the seed is costing the far-
mers 70c while last year at sow-
ing time it could be had for
about 40c. The better prepar-
ation of the ground this year,
however will go a long way to-
ward offsetting the decreased
acreage Farmers in this coun-
ty are becoming more careful
every year and more inclined to
study closely methods to increase

Would Have Made a Great
Success, But "It" And
"So &. So(i Were In
Many young people who lack
| gumption, get-up and-get, or
whatever you term it, often rea-
son thusly. If it had not been
for so-and so, and such and such
a thing, I could have made a
great success. The if and so-
and so are in the way of these
young people, and such a suc-
cessful career is barred by the if
and so-and so that enter into
their daily life and rob them of
their vim and couiane. These
little words are the breastworks
thrown up by the weak and
vicillating, which beguile and
deceive, and which are offered
as excuses for many failures.
This class of young people need
our help. Our life work is to
train young people to determine,
to get up and do things the com-
mercial world wants done, and
for which it aeadily pays cash,
develope their talents, quicken
their perceptions, teach them
Shorthand, Typewriting, Busi-
ness English, Business Law,
Business Arithmetic, Spelling,
Business Writing, Rapid Math
emetics, and the use of the most
modern office applianbes. With
such training the if and so-and-
so is put out of the way. We
have trained hundreds w ho are
now on the road to success, and
can do the same with you.

What Does it Cost
To Feed Your Horse?
If it costs more than 70c per week you are pay-
ing too much and are throwing money away.
Here is the way to save it: Nutritive ratio 1:7.1
20 lbs Hulls at 30c per hundred - - 6c
3 lbs Meal at $1.35 per hundred - 4c
Total cost of daily ration ... loc
Seventy Cents per Week
A quart of Cotton Seed Meal weighs a pound and a
half. A water bucket of Hulls weighs about 5 pounds,
Give No Other Feed
Except an occasional change of good bran, shorts or chops and
some good hay. Any horse weighing eight hundred pounds or less
and doing light work will keep well and strong on this ration. Any
other or more feed is a waste of money. If the horse is heavier or
the work harder the feed may be proportionately increased. Try it
and if it isn't true, we'll return your money.
