The Fruit Growers
Brushy Mountain oyhardists are
known far and wide for their products. It
is hard to get far enough away that you
cannot hear of fruit from the Brushies.
•In this connection we pause to say a
word about the Brushy Mountain Fruit
Growers’ association. The orchardists are
organized into a compact group and work
in unity. Needless to say that they are
reaping benefits by co-operation.
They make co-operative purchases of
fertilizers and sprays, thus saving much
hard cash. The association furnishes a
means by which the advice of the best
specialists can be provided for all without
expense. A representative of the exten
sion service may come to Wilkas and
through the medium of the organization
he can contact all the orchardists.
Producers of other products would do
well to observe the methods of organiza
tion and co-operation. Agriculture has
suffered more than anything else because
of haphazard methods.
Grand Jury Report
The semi-annual report of the grand
jury is the one official way of letting the
public know the status of county affairs,
particularly the condition of county prop
erty and management of public offices.
It is interesting to study the reports of
grand juries. For instance, the Iasi one
examined 116 bills of indictment and out
of that number 72 were true bills and 54
not true bills. This seems to indicate that
there was quite a bit of indictment under
way that was either not comprehensive
enough to go before the court or was of a
frivilous and malicious nature. Apparent
ly the grand jury did a good job of culling
out and keeping many frivilous indict
ments from reaching the stage of trial.
The report of the county home is also
interesting in that it denotes that things
are in good condition at that institution.
The 25 inmates in the county home are
well fed and cared for and the only recom
mendation in regard to inmates’ care
was that they should be fed whole millk
instead of skim milk. The recommenda
tion that more fruit trees be planted is a
timely ona An abundance of fruit for
the inmates would be quite an asset, "^e

WICLIPF AND TYNDAMl
So the Bible passed Into Latin and finally
into English. There had been partial transla
tions from the Latin from the time of the Ven
erable Bede and King Alfred, but the name of
the great English pioneer translator is John
Wiclif, who lived from 1324 to 1384.
As a translation his work was of secondary
value, for he, too, used the Latin and not the
original tongues, but he put the Bible into the
hands of the reading public of England, which
was small but potent, and made it what it Is
today, the Book of the common people.
One hundred and fifty years after Wiclif
came William Tyndale, who undertook a trans
lation of the New Testament from the original
Greek. People were horror-stricken by the
impiety of the Idea. He had to flee to Ham
burg, and never again set foot on his native
shore. Against fierce opposition he continued
his work. Printing had been invented, and
Tyndale determined to "make every plow-boy in
England know th© New Testament.” His book,
printed by Caxton, had to be smuggled Into
England and was read by stealth. With such
asinine drivel as the following, written by the
pious Friar Buckingham, Us circulation was
Where Scriptures salth, ‘‘No man that
layeth his hand to the plow and looketh
back is fit for the kingdom of God’’; will
not the plowman when he readeth these
words apt forthwith to cease from his plow,
and then where will be the sowing and,the
harvest? Likewise also whereas the baker
readeth, “A little leaven leaveneth the
whole lump,” will he not be forthwith too
sparing in the use of leaven, to the great
Injury of our herlth? And so also when the
simple man reads the words, “If thine eye
offend thee, pluck it out and cast it from
thee,” incontient he will pluck out his
eyes, and so the whole realm will he fall
of blind men, to the great decay of the na
tion and the manifest loss of the king’s
grace. And thus by reading of the holy
Scriptures will the whole realm come into
Tyndall himself was treacherously dealt with
and arrested, and lay for eighteen months in
Antwerp for no crime other than that of giv
ing to the people a truer version of the Scrip
tures. On October 6, 1536, he was strangled
and his body was burned. Thus have Christian
folk welcomed the better and more accurate
translations of thi Book which teaches kind
ness, tolerance, forbearance and the open mind
and thus do they still denounce those men of

Application of scientific pro
duction methods to engine recon
ditioning A? practiced 'by the
Ford Motor company, is consid
ered by experts the post notable
advance in service twhnique of
this decade. It produces some
fling new in the automotive
world—a reconditioned motor in
every respect the equal of a new
one. And it is done with the
very hearty co-operation of the
dealer, who is relieved of heavy
investments for service equip
ment and obtains a potent argu
ment to assist in sales of new
cars and trucks. : .
In brief, the operation m^ly be
described as complete disassembly
of the motor and its components,
followed by replacement or refin-
ishing of all worn parts of sur-
face."The operation is exactly the
same as the building of a new
motor. Elvery bearing surface is
fitted to precisely the same limit
of tolerance as a pew motor. In
part the assembly operation is
done on the new motor line, al-
J’tough natilally most of it is
conducted on a special disassem
bly and assembly line.
To provide sure control of the
policy that every part must fit to
the original tolerance limit, those
parts which are to be used again
are returned to the factory de
partment in which they were first
made, for gauging, either acept-
ing or rejecting. There is thus
no pressure on the reconditioning
line to attempt a d.ingerously
high level of parts recovery.
What is new in the Ford V-8
reconditioned engine ? Pistons,
'>iston rings, cylinder head
studs, nuts valves, valve as-
semblira (except spring, many of
which^re 0. K.L main bearings,
connecting rod bearings, camshaft
bearings, cam gears. In almost
any given dxample a great many
other parts will be new, as all
those which fail to meet gauge
and other tests are replaced.
