Pigs started on Larro Pig Feed means they mature quicker, dress a better percentage and make better flavored pork. 32% Larro Dairy Feed is proving very popular. It's a much safer feed-than cottonseed meal, as you have three sources of protein instead of one. Larro Egg Mash needs no comment—ask the dozens who are feeding it. Also in stock, Meat Scraps, Package Salt, Grit, Cracked Corn, Bone Meal, Charcoal, Cod Liver Oil, Bran, Middlings, Dog Pood, Calf Meal, Stick Yeast, Stock Tonic and Conditioner, Epsom Salts, Morton's Smoke Salt, Liquid Smoke, Sausage Seasoning, Larro, Golden Eagle and Snow Loaf Flour, as well as Pancake Flour and Table Corn Meal—we might trade some of this for Johnnycake. ren© ristmas Fresli shipment of J CANDY aU 5©=»8© and $1.00 pound Big dolls, little dolls, dolls with curly hair! short ones, tall ones, go- to-sleep and crying ones—Santa has left them all for the admiration and love of little girls in the vicinity of Saline. The local merchants have large stocks and a wide variety of gifts to delight the boys and girls on Christinas morn. Wandering through the stores to see what Santa had left for this season the Roving Reporter was astonished at the multitude of gay and attractive things which filled shelves, counters and even stacked on the floor. Games of every kind and description—spin the wheel ones, authors, Old Maid, and what variety; building toys as Lincoln bricks, logs, mechanical sets, doll dishes, toy pianos, sleds, scooters, skates, wagons, drums, books,' tool kits, flashlights, and so many, many more that you will have to look for yourselves. At any rate there were so many and such lovely things that the Reporter wished that again she were a little girl hanging her sock for Santa to fill and waking oh, so very early Christinas morning to find the assortment of treasures which Santa prepares for children everywhere. j But for Dad and Mother there are j just as many and just as nice things.

A man had a vision. ed the old molasses-soaked boards, but tlie new fashioned like the first. In time the little school stood there proudly looking as it did many years ago when men, now gray and feeble but mere lads then, ran at the tap of the bell. A search was begun and a former teacher secured to again preside at the little village school, Jerome Travis who lives across the way. A hand bell is used, the gift of Miss Sue Langan, a former teacher, and is the same bell she used. Regular village school is still conducted in the 1 frame building down the street.
