Record Available For,
Bulls Bought Here
(By R. W. Shoffnrr, C ounty Agent.1
I have just received from the
Many Springs farm, Pennsylvania,
the records on the dams of the bulls
■that were bought In the county last
summer, the records that were made
last year. As you know, then were
seven bulls brought to this county
from the Many Springs farm. Of
the seven bulls, six had an official
record. One of these bulls did not
have a record, due to the fact that
the dam died while on test. No doubt,
but what this dam would have made
as good a record as the rest, Mr
Williams, manager of this farm says,
We have sold a lot of bulls in the
last year, but among the best are
the ones that came your way.” The
average milk production of the six
dams of the bulls that, we have In
the county Is 12,208 pounds of milk.
The average fat production of these
six dams is 627.1 pounds.
Of these six records, two made
gold medals last year. This Is r
mighty good record for a club of
bulls and is a credit to any county
in this state.

Spirit Of Century
Will Bring Us Out
To The Kill tor.
When times got, to their worst lust
summer and full. so many bad
things had happened we wondered
what would happen next. Many of
our banks hutl closed and tied up
the people's money, following 'the'
stock market crash of the year be
fore. Industry slowed clow t v-si tikes
were called when tljo questions in
dispute should have been settled by
a spirit of conclliatiou and mutual
good-will and sympathy by the em
ployers and the employes. Our peo
ple were restless and reckless and a
few were openly Bolshevik. Troops
were called out to keep order. The
papers were filled wltli robberies,
murder.!, crimes, suicides and viol
ence of all kinds, and it seemed our
civilization was about to fall. Thou
sands of the unemployed were
tramping the streets and highways
looking for jobs and begging fur
bread. while a pitiless sun was
scorching half the continent leaving
many sod hearts and empty stom
achs. For 50 years we had been try
ing to help run things and It seem
ed we had made a mess of it all. We
had built schools, churches, hospi
tals, trying to educate the masses
and enforce law and order. We
thought of all the groat teachers,
preachers, editors and statesmen,
and many men and women who had
given their wealth and their lives to
advance our civilization for the past
50 years. I do not need to mention
their names—this paper would not
hold the list -you know them for
you have also worked with them.
We were blue; everybody was blue,
not so much because our crops fail
ed to pay our debts and taxes and
that we might lose our little of tilts
world’s goods, but becuuse we felt
somehow responsible for such con
ditions. Very many things were be
ing suggested and done to help the
situation but it still continued to go
from bad to worse, cattle and peo
ple were suffering and starving in
the midst of plenty when Thanks
giving Day came.
The roads were still filled with thu
hungry and Jobless—confronted at
every corner by the sign: "No Hiflp
Wanted." Misery and despair was
plainly written on many faces while
some were outspoken Bolshevik. The
very air was charged with danger,
anything could happen. Something
did happen just four weeks later
when Santa Claus came. Times were
hard and money was scare and hard
to raise but every community in this
land placed a sufficient sum hi the
hands of charity to take care of all
the needs of every citteen. The nak
ed were clothed, the hungry were
fed and the sick were administered
When your euutkis walked in to
their' Christinas dinner, and laid
down contributions to be added to
your already very liberal charity
fund, they carried the spirit of the
Twentieth Century that will save
us. Not the size ot the gilt so much
as the spirit in which it was done.
They, and all men of like capacity
represent the sum total of our times,
they are the product of Vae last half
The pinch oi poverty was relieved,
laces brightened—the sun came
through the clouds again and with
that spirit we crossed the cross
roads on Christmas day to a brigh
fler day of Hope, which is now being
fulfilled as conditions all over the
world are growing better, and the
worker may rest assured that every
thing possible is being done to make
his job secure.
Thanks to the men and women
who made the sacrifice. On Christ

Red Badge of Courage Not Male Monopoly
Determination of Lady Wilkins to Dare Perils of Sub-Arctic Expeditions
Recalls Other Examples of Women Who Preferred the Wilds to Pink
Teas, Boudoirs and Civilization in General. '
Fudv N
r Mrs? 1
Nrv York.—When Sir Hubert)
Wilkins, 'the noted Arctic explorer,
made public his intention to attempt
un approach to the North Pole by
submarine, many opinions were
voiced as to the wisdom or practical
value ot such an expedition. Beyond
that, public interest in the affair
was, to say the least lethargic. But
since the wile of the Intrepid ex
plorer has declared her intention ol
making the hazardous trip with her
husband, the world, which is first
and foremost an incurable roman
ticist, lias set up with a jolt and is I
beginning to take notice.
Lady Wilkins, who only recently
made known her determination to
be one of the crew of the sub-Arctic
Nautilus, doesn't think that there
is anything crazy or fool-hardy j
about the proposed trip. She has no
fear of that blind dive through frigid
seas tinder an Ice field twenty feet
thick. The thousands of perils that
lie in their path between Spitzber-]
gen and Alaska are to her just de
tails ol' a great adventure. Only one
thing matters. She'll be with her
man—and that's the true woman of
Lady Wilkins is just running true
to form. History teems with exam
ples of heroic women who have
braved untold perils to be with the
men they loved. One need only think
back to pioneer days When the
hardy men and women who made
our west trekked out into what was
then the great unknown. In those
days the women fought side by side
with the men, and many of them
sent more than one would-be scalp
lifter to Join his ancestors in the
happy hunting grounds.
Our own generation contributes
generously to the reputation that
woman has won for fearlessness.
Another lady who has no fear of
old Davy Jones is Mrs. William
Beebe, wife of the submarine scien
tist. Mrs. Beebe has accompanied
her husband on many perilous ex
peditions in search of new data re
lating to marine flora and fauna.
To change the scene from ocean
depths to tropical jungles. We have
the saga of the Johnsons, whose ad
ventures through regions of unmap
ped Africa make a more blood-stir
T'.ng narrative than the wildest flight
of fiction.
Martin Johnson, who shoots big
game with a camera instead of a
gun, has penetrated parts of the
dark continent where a white man
had never before set foot and filmed
scenes that astouud us stay-at
homes who must find our adven
tures in the pages of detective
thrillers. In all of his harzardous ex- j
peditlons Mr. Johnson was accom-1
panied by his wife, who did her]
share of the dangerous work of re-,
cording the habits of wild animals

Well, maybe, but not scared enough
to make her hand shake; for she

only fifteen feet from her and killed
her lion With one shot.
Pink teas, boudoirs and civiliza
tion in general pale upon many
woman who have that dash of ad
venture in their blood. Mrs. William
Seabrook, wife of the author and
traveller, is one such. Mrs. Sea
brook has accompanied her hus
band in his strange wanderings in
many lands, among Bedouins in
Arabia, cannibals of unexplored
West Africa and Voodoo workers of
Haiti. She once averred that she
lelt much safer in the most savage
infested jungles than she did in
some of our most civilized cities.
