< SLVQ ^6 Established 1878 OLARE, MIOHI0AN, FRIDAY MORNING, JL7LY 4, 1913, New Series; Vol.21, 9«..3£' * i i r MORE BURGLARS, Rosebush Stores Entered and Farm Rig Stolen. On Friday night of last week a thief or thieves, broke into the Btore of Alexander Hislop, also the meat market of William Calkins, at Rosebush, securing some money and perhaps other valuables. The same parties doubtless later entered the barni of Dennis Fitzpatriek near Rosebush and stole horse, harness and buggy, driving to this city and putting the horse in Mr. MoKeever's shingle warehouse near tbe depot, breaking tbe lock to enter it. The next morning Under Sheriff Morris- sonjoame here with Mr. Fitzpatriek who identified the hotse as his. No trace of the thieveB haa yet been found so far as -we know. Good Cattle. Last Saturday John Levingaton oi Sheridan sold to Johnson and Son of Rosebush'nine 2 year old steers that weighed 9000 pounds, lacking only 40 lbs. 1?bey sold for S6.90 per hundred, or for S618.24, an average of S68.70. Tbe steers were low grade' Durham as we are informed and were raised on the farm. Mr. Levingston contemplates going into the stock business on a more extended scale. Now we are not publishing this because the result waa anything extraordinary. Mr. Levingston would doubtless disclaim any such idea. We are glad to note any improvement in stock breeding and feeding and at present high price of beef, it would Beem to pay farmers to feed stock, if they are rightly situated to do so. Recently we spoke of the. organization of "Stock Improvement Associations" now being carried on by the Agricultural College. It is certainly something intirely practicable in any community and would result in a marked improvement in stock and at a minimum of expense to- the members. FARWELL June Wedding.

The house and granary were saved, thanks to the favorable direction of tbe wind and tbe use of a sprayer. The fire was started about 9:30 Sunday evening and the flames spread so rapidly tbat only a part of the tools in the barn could be slotved. The loss wiil foot up somewhere from 81500 to $2000 with an insurance of only $575. We Shall Know. When the mists have rolled in splendor From the beauty of the hills, And the sunshine, warm and tender, Falls in kisses on the rills; We may read love's shining letter In tbe rainbow of tbe spray, We shall know each other better When the mists have cleared away. We shall know as we are known, Never more to walk alone, In the dawning of the morning When the mista have cleared away. DOING GOOD WORK. Corporations Employing Experts To Instruct Farmers. Corporations come in for their full share of cussing on all Bides doubtless, and very likely more or lesB of this is due them all right. However, some of them are undertaking things that certainly cannot but result in much good to the agricultural interests of the country and thns indirectly benefit all. 'The International HarvesterCo. of Chicago, for instance, employs Perry G. Holden, the "Corn Wizard" as he is often called, the man who has perhaps done more than any other man in this country to improve the corn crop, to direct campaigns of educa-. tion among tbe farmers. He is endeavoring in this state to call the attention of farmerB to the importance of the alfalfa crop. Assisted by others he arranges a series of meetings in every pection of a county, then in an automobile tour each place is reached and addresses made the evening meetings being made in the towns. Now tbe Dnluth, South Shore and Atlantic railroad employs Prof. Jeffries of "our" Agricultural College to train the farmers ©£ Upper Michigan in, the newest and most scientific farming methods, He has been with the college 14 years and recognized as an expert, Doubtless hie services will be of great valueto that section of our state. ~M"W!^ Y f*'f,Kt '« t~ nilii niiai ¥i i i i iW mm:i High Priced Potatoes. The Northeastern Michigan Devel- opment Bureau agrees to pay twenty dollars for the bushel of potatoes, of any variety, winning first prize at the States Fair this Fall providing they are exhibited and grown by a resident of Northeastern Michigan. Prizes on potatoes at tbe State Fair this. Fail have been materially changed; Instead of giving a prize as in the past of a few dollars each, on many different varieties they now offer for the best bushel of early potatoes; prizes of S20.00, $15.00, 81.0.00, and three prizes $5.00 each. The same amounts are offered for tbe best bushel of late potatoes. This gives the grower of one or two varieties of potatoes an opportunity to enter hia potatoes and win a prize wortb while and then by selling the buahel to the Development Bureau for twenty dollars the winner, if from Northeastern Michigan can get forty dollars for tbe best bushel of potatoea at the State Fair. The Development Bureau ia very anxious that all these prizes, each and every one, offered for potatoes at the State Fair shall be captured by Northeastern Michigan growers. We believe Northeastern Michigan produces the best potatoes, let our growers prove it. Copyright, 1913, by American Press Association. By WALTON WILLIAMS "VJLTHEN Uncle Samuel had reached His eighty-seventh year He had about the biggest fight That Time has witnessed in his flight , Upon this rolling sphere. "OUT now that fifty birthdays have Been added to the score Your Uncle Sam is of a mind That is more peacefully inclined. And he would fight no more. AND yet if other lands get gay— A course they might regret— They would awaken to the truth That Uncle Sam is still a youth With some fights in him yet. If yott ore in give us a call. need of stationery The Big Ad. We do not need to call attention to Bicknell'a big ad in this isaue. No one could overlook it if he tried a«nd certainly no one will desire to do so. Perhaps we are prone to think of certain portions of the year as "the dull season," but Mr. Bicknell is not inclined to tolerate anything smacking of dullness around him. CANNING FRUITS. No Preservative Necessary Food Commissioner. Says As the canning season is close at hand, Commissioner Helme calls attention to the fact that no drug preservatives are necessary for either fruits or vegetables. An analysis of one of the compounds that iB widely advertised shows that it is composed largely of Boric Acid, a subBtance that is prohibited by both Federal and state governments as injurious to health. Moreover the cost of the compound is only 17 cents a pound while it sells for $1.60. Long continued beat will kill all germs without the use of any chemicals. Wedded Yesterday.
