THINGS WORTH READING
So many good—and bad—things
are in print nowadays, that we must
be careful, lest we go astray and be
lieve some stuff that is not good for
us. Sometimes in the little circular
that comes to my desk, I find some
of the brightest, most practical ideas
and so well worth reading.
A prominent woman, Marie Dress
ier, is quoted in “Food Facts,” in
substance, as follows:
The modern cult among women is
to reduce. No matter what happens
just so you ladies remain slim. You
resort to any means that promises a
slim figure—some of it dangerous
When you want to make a thing
better, you fatten it, don’t you? A
cow, chicken, pig.—fruit or vege
table—you grow them as big as pos
sible . . . Dressier sagely remarks,
“I never could see any beauty in the
human skeleton.” She is right, too.
Let me quote this interesting wom
“I fail to see where the fun is in
a life that holds nothing more than
a sip of orange juice for breakfast,
two biscuits and a raisin for lunch,
and a small portion of a grated car
rot for dinner . . . This is a cruel
diet for which there is no necessity.
Women are advised against eating
carbohydrates— and since they do
not know what carbohydrates are,
they ‘play safe’ and eat next to noth
ing at all.”
I know a lady neighbor, who must
weigh almost 300. She is as happy
a woman as I know. Seemingly per
fect care-free. I saw. her dining at
a restaurant the other day—she sat
at the corner on one of those little
perches provided for speed . . . She
was the picture of happy content.
Isn't that about all that matters?

“Whaf $ this gadget?”
—and we sold him 4 new tires
The “gadget” la a little machine that
shows the difference between ordinary
cord, used in other tires, and Super
twist cord, used in Goodyears... That
difference is in the stretch and come
back—you can see how Supertwist cord
stretches and comes back, how the cord
in other tires loses its life and elasticity
... It takes about 3 minutes to tell the
story—but as this customer said—“If
every car owner could see that demon
stration, there wouldn’t be anything
used but Goodyear Tires.”

Wool prices at present are better
than they were a year ago. I real
ize that a large number of farmers
needs to sell their wool in order to
meet their current- obligations for
fertilizer, seeds, and other farm nec
essities. However it will be poor
economy for our farmers to sell their
wool at a comparatively low price in
order to get their money for it at
an early date.
The officers and directors of the
wool pools in the county will make !
an effort to sell our wool at the.
earliest date that it can be sold, at
the most favorable price that can be
had. It will be to the interest of
every farmer in the county to keep
their wool until the wool price for
this year is fully established, and
the best price obtainable can be had.
Hold your wool, stick to the pool, i
and get the price that your wool is
The U. S. Department of Agricul
ture has made accurate checks and
found that 21 times more soil fer
tility is washed away than taken out
by crops each year. Anyone can
readily see that this is a tremendous
waste. We have had a large number
of hard washing rains this spring
and it is appalling to see the amount
of good top soil washed across roads,
into creeks and on out in the rivers.
It must be disheartening to any
farmer to go out and look at his
field filled with gullies as deep as
it was plowed.
Some of the most gullied fields
are the small field on the lower side
of pastures. Erosion of this kind
can nearly always be prevented by
a few hours work with a team and
plow. Deep furrows should be
plowed through the pasture to car-!
ry the water around the field in
Cut hillside ditches through your
fields, above your fields, or around
your fields if necessary to prevent
the fine top soil from being washed
away. Remember that your time and
labor is thrown away in cultivating
a field that washes badly. It will
cost more to build it back than your
crop will be worth.
