Many things Are being said regarding the Best Way to keep boys and girls on the farm. Yet Day by Day they continue to leave the farm and seek for happiness and Fortune in the cities and towns. Some succeed admirably others in a moderate Way while Many either Huttt re fail or make Little or no Progress. With the latter the Only real gain is that they realize that the country is the better place for them and they would gladly go Back if there were any Chance for them to get a foot hold and make a living. But relying on their own efforts alone they can not go Back. In time there will be re colonization of the Large almost deserted Large farm districts where iii Chinery has largely supplanted human labor.

The conservation idea is gaining strength helped largely by the so called higher Cost of ving. _ More front Page space is now Given in tie big newspapers to the food problem than wins even Given or. Cook when he came out of the Frozen North and told of Liis quot discovery quot to an Aji lauding world. The food subject is quot dished up quot if that figure of speech be Jermis Sable i in every form . Oilie Newman s Home with contents barely escaped the Home of mrs. Ollie Newman a widow of Glenwood was totally destroyed by fire about Midnight last night along with its valuable contents. Mrs. Newman and three children barely escaped with their lives. The neighbors rallied promptly but nothing of value could be saved. The House and contents Are estimated As Worth from $2,500 to $2,-800. Mrs. Newman carried $1,700 insurance. She had a Library which alone was valued at $500. The fire is thought to have resulted from a defective flue. New House threatened. The new Home of mrs. Milt Ochiltree stands next door to the Newman Home site. When the neighbors saw that nothing could be done to save the property of mrs. Newman they concentrated their efforts on the Ochiltree residence and by hard work prevented it from catching fire. The House had just been finished and is about to be occupied by the owner. The Midnight fire was a startling event for Glenwood people.

Mrs. Newman has the warmest sympathy of her neighbors in the loss not Only of her Home but of Many cherished articles a Iose value to her cannot be measured in Dolli to and cent. Quot a Wayne county Board Are giving the matter serious thought a difficult Job for treasurers the Pennsylvania Iman commended. Publishing a list of the names of All persons owing delinquent Persou al taxes As an Aid in the collection thereof is a matter now being seriously considered by the county commissioners says the Richmond item. While no provision for the publication of such a list is made still an appropriation covering the Cost could be made on the grounds that it is regarded As a necessity. The matter of collecting delinquent personal tax is a problem that has confronted county treasurers for years and no solution has Ever been offered that has proven satisfactory. Piles upon piles of notices have been sent out to delinquents and in most counties More than half of these Are returned to the treasurer unclaimed. Parties owing personal taxes Are divided into three classes deceased transients and those who Are generally without sufficient funds to meet the obligation. It is a conceded impossibility to make collections fro a the first two classes and almost us much of a Job from the third. While the Law provides that a Man s effects in excess of $100 Worth of household goods May be seized for the obligation still sentiment and Charity Are such Large factors that not one treasurer in a Hundred will Avail lii self of the provision and Talie the property in lieu of the Money. In Many instances it would Meiji deprivation to Large families. The nearest Correct i solution of tic problem Ever employed is that in Vogue now in the state of Pennsylvania whose Laws prohibit a Man from voting unless he can produce a receipt for personal taxes. Indiana trea Sierers Are heartily in favor of a similar Law and there is already a movement on foot to have a Bill of this kind formulated and present it he to the next legislature that it May become a Law.
