What promises to be a new in
dustry for this country has been
launched by C. B. Doyle who last
spring planted a Bmall patch of
broom corn on C. 0. Maynard'a
farm which developed into a fairly
good grade of broom corn. The
straw was a little short on account
of the extremely dry season, but
he harvested it, made his own
machinery for threshing and mak
ing the brooms. Mr. Doyle is an
experienced haud in broom mak
ing and is now turning out a very
good grade of brooms. He says
be sees uo reason why broom corn
cannot be raised successsully here
and be a profitable crop. Now
what we need here is for some one
to experiment on sorghum, so that
we might have some of the good

Only A Volunteer -
Why didn't I wait to be drafted
And be led to the train by a hand
And put iu a claim for exemption
0 why did I hold up my hand;
Why didn't I wait for the banquet
Why didu't I wait to be cheered
For the drafted men got the credit
While I merely volunteered.
And nobody gave me a banquet
And nobody said a kind word
The grinding wheels of the engine
Was all the goodbye I heard;
Then off to the camp I was hustled
To be trained the next half year
And then in the shuffle forgotten,
1 was only a volunteer.
And maybe some day in future
When my little boys sit on my knee
And ask what 1 did in the conflict
And bis little eyes look up at me
I will have to look back as I'm
To the eyes that so trustingly
And tell him I missed being drafted
As I was only a volunteer.
