What some people spend foolishly is making others rich and
somebody is saving a part of what you spend.
You do not in the end deny yourself pleasure when you save
because saving becomes a pleasure and results in comforts and
pleasures that no one enn enjoy unless he has saved.
You are riot stingy when you save but hjensible. Don't deny
yourself a bank account.

58342.00 CROP OF BROOM CORN.
II. I). Wood who owns land lifteen
miles toutheast of Braver marketed
here last week tho biggest crop of
broom corn grown in the Southwest
ttils year. We doubt if a bigger crop
has often been marketed by one
farmer any year. Mr. Wood's crop
was produced on G0 acres of ground
and Hold for $8342 00 In rouud nuin-'
hers. He sold before the markot was i
at his highest receiving flOTi.flQ per
ton. Had tie waited a few week hit
returns wijuld havvlrfeen muchrgreitqr
for he had splendid -corn and could
have topped the market. As it was
he tells us that he will net between
$0000.00 and 17000.00 for his season's
work which he considers good enougli
and he is not grieving because ho did
not hold for the bight price
There are eeveral things tn con-
nection with the production of this
immense crop this year which are
worthy of note. In the first place
Mr. Wood employed all home labor in
the production and harvesting of his
crop which Mt many dollars in the
pockets of other Beaver county farm-
ers as well as the producer a moit
worthy thing to do. 'Then ho gavo
the crop the right kind of attention at
tho right time. The ground was
properly prepared and the jsrop was
not "hogged in". After tho briiidi
was pulled it was cured in sheds and
kept protected from the weather until
it was hauled to market. This is one
of the grerteet items in the successful
production of broom corn. So many
farmers grorr a good crop of brush and
then allow it to deteriorate by not
curing and preparing it for market
If t lie re are those who are still in
doubt as to the agricultural posslbili
ties of Beaver county wo respwtfully
refer them to the record made by Mr.
Wood this year. The past season has
not been a favorable one by any meant
for wo had more dry hot weather
than we have had for years If sucli a
yield could be produced .luring an un-
favorable year just what would have
been tho result had everything been
Mr. Woods is tboro uglily convinced
that this Is a farming section. He has
returned to his home at Battle Greek
Michigan to spend the winter but will
return in the spring and put out 800
acres to broom corn
THE MASONIC BANQUET.
The banquet given Monday night by
the local A. P & A. M. lodge was one
of the most successful and highly enter
taining events of the kind ever given
here by that eminent organization.
An immense crowd of Masons and
their families from all parts of the
county together with their fraternal
sisters the members of the Eastern
Stir enjoyed the occasion and feasted
upon the fat of the land as guests of
the Heaver Matons
