Since the new calendar contain
ing 13 months instead of the usual
12 has been so much under discus
sion of late in various periodicals
it might be of interest to Boardman
people to learn that Freidinburg
Embarger, a local man, had a cal
endar of this type copyrighted in
the year 1903 at Lindsay, Tex. He
has hopes that he may yet be suc
cessful in obtaining some material
benefit from his plan. According
to Mr. Embarger's calendar the
months are the same as at present
with the exception of the seventh
which he calls Septimus, the Latin
for seventh, and each month has
28 days, starting with Sunday each
time. New Years day is not in the
dated month but is a day for itself.
In Leap Year there is New Year
first day and New Year is extended
the second day. Mr. Emberger has
a number of copies of his calendar
in printed form which anyone who
is interested may have.
Home Honey Sales More
But Exports Decline
An apparent increase in the do
mestic consumption of honey is re
ported in a statement just issued
bv L. R. BrelthauDt extpnstnn nn.
omist at Oregon State college. This
increase, ne oeneves, Is due to the
fact that many beekeepers packed
their 1930 crop honey in small tin
and glass containers and marketed
it to nearby dealers and consumers.
runner aeveiopment of such
methods seems advisable, according
to the report because exports of
honey have declined sharply. For
merly around one-sixth of the hon
ey produced In this country was
marketed in foreign
only 3.7 million pounds were shipped
out iasc year compared to 10.8 mil
lion pounds in 1928. The exports
were mostly from Pacific coast
ports. Germany, the principal im
porting nation, has increased the
import duties for honey and other
restrictions have been imposed.
