two prominent farmers who had
seeded a large acreage, made a
tour of the wheat fields in this sec

him to re-seed all of it with the ex

last year s crop, is going to make
it rather tough for the farmers.

The New Year
"I will find a way, or make one,"
Cried a brave soul, long ago,
Pressing onward, still undaunted.
Over trackless wastes of snow.
So today the New Year stretches
Vast, unknown, before us all,
With its misty secrets hidden,
Dangers that might well appall;
Trials, struggles and temptations,
Sweet rewards and joys unguess
ed, Resolutions kept and strengthened,
Hours of gladness and of rest,
eady, then for action! Forward,
Ready, then, for action! Forward,
Manfully, with courage bright,
Wheresoever that way shall lead us,
Valley, plain or mountain height.
Trustful, faithful, earnest
In our work and in our play,
Let us eagerly press onward,
Ever onward, day by day.
He who watches o'er the sparrow
Never will forsake His own;
He will ever be beside us,
Never shall we be alone.
White and fair the New Year opens,
Calls us each to do his part
Enter! Find a way, or make one,
With a joyous, trusting heart.
You are welcome to all our ser
