' The retiring secretary shows just one faint glimmer of hard horse sense, and that is in declaring he will not take the stump to oppose Wilson. To do so would be to double the measure of his foolishness and childishness. Just why a man who has served in solitary confine ment for four years as vice-president of the United States should seek to be resentenced to another four year term is one of the things that will never be known.

It used to be thought that when one graduated from high school they had completed their education, but now a farmer id up against it if he does not study continuously. There is no end to our education. For every new thing we learn 10 more are brought to our no lice that ne feel we ought to know. It is just as important for the farm er to study out the proper methods to follow by which to learn as it is to be come inspired with the incentive to leatn.

One day I went through a poultry show with a certain farmer. We look ed at every coop of birds in the build ing and made casual remarks about a great many of the birds on exhibit. There was a raponizing clinic but we didn't stop for that. The next day I went through the same show with another farmer. At the very first coops we met the owner, nnd the farmer began asking all manner of questions. "Were thev hatched in an incubator? What did he feed them when thev were small?
