It is no disgrace to find red mites
in your poultry house but it is a dis
grace to leave them. Keep the brood
coops and laying houses clean and
sprayed with a good disinfectant.

Perhaps one of the worst storms
this section has ever known swept
over it July 5. Trees were uproot
ed, literally twisted into" splinters,
corn broken down, buildings torn
and rent, some completely demolish
ed. So far we hear of no lives lost,
land no stock killed in the storm. A
check up on the destruction made by"
the cyclone is about as follows:
The tops out of three large white
pine trees in Jim Scrogg's yard
broken out ? one of these almost
crushing the Post Office.
Sixty-seven trees counted on the
jhill above Harley Scrogg's uproot
ed, twisted and broken, and crossed
over each other.
Mr. R. L. Anderson's barn top
lifted from the walls and set away
from the building at a distance.
Over one hundred trees counted
blown over and crossed over one an
other on the hill above Mr. Hersehel
