What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

TOEISINVIT . : SOCIAL ADVANTAGES OF THE FARMERS' People ar; essentially socket beings. They are e not usually happy; when. !isolated, and do not develop proper- ly except in groups. Life on the farm tends to keep people too much to themselves. A farmers' deb that will bring the people together month- ly or gemi-monthly furnishes a very desirable change from the ordinary 'routine of farm life. Everyone is in- terested in making the most of hitt- trelf and his life. An important part of one's pleasure and deveibopment eomes from meeting people --gaining the ability to mingle with them free- ly, without which one cannot appear at his best or get the moat out of life, either socially or in a business war One needs to get away from' his CAM work and home and get an op- portu.nIty to tee life from a differ- ent angle. As a rude, one is better tatisfied witch his own condition; when he sees how others live and do. A better acquaintance with people CLUB usually resales in more tolerance for their shortcomings. Many times when left to ourselves we begin to think 'unkindly of our neighbors, and real- ly believe they are not what they should be. Usualy a closer acquaint- ance and a clearer knowledge of their trials end strulggles shows us that they are really better than we had thought them to be. A coming' nity In which people are interest and are boosting for each other, 's a much better place in whick to live than is one in wbich there is mein\ distrust. As a rule, knowledge of one another increases confidence Play is an important part of one's Wei One cannot do his best if every minute is devoted to work. Relaxation and pleasure are abso- lutely essential! to good diving. Clubs. that will bring some entertainment, Social gatherings, or other means of 'arnusetnent into the community, are very important. —A. D.

THRESHING MACHINE — WEED AND SMUT SEEDS. That the threshing machine is one of the principal means of spreading smut diseases in greet is emphasized in a recent article by H. O.. Gussow, ienninian botanist of Canada. A mac- hine that has been used in threshing smutted grain is no fully infeeted with spores that all grain subsequeet- ly threshed, unless the machine beconie liable to infection. Moreover, ' PUBLIC LANDS ARE In traveling from one farm to anoth- er the infested machine scatters the spores along its route. Dr. Gusgow enges' the enactment of legislation against this evil analogous to that. al- ready in force Ia some provinces of Canada against spreadlnig of weed seeds .by threshing Machines. The laws _requiring that the maehines be swept free from seeds after use should also require thorough disin- fection, which may be readily car- ried out by enclosing bags er sacking soaked in formalin solution in the Machine for a few hours, and spray- ing the exterior parts anid imple- Means with the same solerion.—Scien title American.

K. lane of the Interior Department. The re - stilt is a net decrease in outstanding withdrawals in the public -dead states of nearly 1,630,000 acres. This action was based on recommendations ,to , the Secretary by the United Statea Geological Survey. The states most affected are tuna, In which 120,000 acres hereinee e„ tare inoliele•d in phosphate lands were shown by the Geologioal . Sor- vey to be not phosphate bearing ad 'were therefore restored to entry; North Dakota, in which the withdraw- als of coal land were likewise re- deced by over 646,000 acres; Wash. and 'Wyoming, Where there were re- ductions• of 'nearly 500,000 and. 400,000 acres, respectively, in' coal land With - &emits. The principel areas with- drawn during the month were in cal- irornia and Wyoming. in California public water reserves aggregating 36,000 acres were created, and in Wyoming more' than 12,000 metres were withdrawn for the, same pur- pose.. ! The net effect of this action has been to reduce the entire area with- drawn In the public land states from somewhat less than 87,900,000 acres at the beginning of the month to a little less than 66,270,000 acres at the end of the month Thar area withdrawn is to be comettaed with 'approximately 88,000,000 *trees that have thus far been ellessitfied under the several Mineola land flaws. -e'er/nein thie - ninth .
