disporting herself over the lunar satellite but fortunately the supply does not seem to be di minishing This merry month of May witnesses the opening of the salmon season The Springs as they are called are the advance of the swarms of salmon and will be followed during the summer amid pearly autumn by the humpback Cockeye and silver salmon the sea eon closing in September Urged by 1 a biolosical imperative to propa j gate their kind the schools of fish j have crossed the ibroad expanse of the E Pacific before reaching their breed Ing grounds in the rivers and inleta of the Pacific northwest The im f pulse of life that causes the salmon to make the transpacific trip is in a Jure to destruction Even if the fish escape the traps that are set for them and dp not end their careers In a tin can with a litho graphed label death in another form awaits them at the breeding grounds 0f their desires After the female laya her egiss and the male has fer tilized them both give up the

Industry in which mil lions of dollars are invested and in thousands are employed it jowes its existence to the instinct of the fish to return to the spawning season to itsown birthplace The strength of this migratory instinct la j eueh that the salmon will overcome j seemingly impossible obstacles to reach its goal Practically nothing I Is known of the life of the salmon In the ocean except their growth is j exceedingly orapiS A little fish weighing only a few ounces may fare out to sea and return in a few months weighing eight or ten pounds Salmon have been caught weighing a pounds but the average is frim tea to twentyfive pounds and each school Is usually composed of fish of about the same size The iflsh swimming in a solid close together that as one writer has ex pressed it it seems as though one could walk across on their head unsuspectingly into the traps ARBITRATE DISPUTES The probability that the threatened locomotive engineers strike will be settled by mediation and the fact ithat a similar trouble in 1910 was thus adjusted through1 the Erdman act gives new hope to arbitration as a means of stopipimg industrial war With the hopeful promise of the arbitration movement about a diozeu years ago industrial disarmament seemed at hand The National Civic Federation held enthusiastic The millenium very near as the Roman punch circulated and the skilfully seasoned terrapin was con sumed Then came the failure of the fed eration to settle the coal strike fail ure of arbitration In the Philadel phia general strike the itallure to settle the shirt waist makers strikes In that way The reports of state arbitration boards make jobs for the state prin ters but their achievement is not large Now look at strikes as a part of the coat of living The Pullmaa strike of 1894 is figured to have cost the country The coal 1902 cost the railroads in loss of freight alone a small item in the general loss The French general strikeof 1909 cost that country jniot to speak of the general discomfort and paralysis to business Compulsory arbitration is con trary to many preconceived theories and established traditions Theoret ically an individual and a corpora tion has a right to hire whom it pleases and theoretically a workman bas tha right to quit work at any time But suppose every railroad from New Orleans and St Paul to the Aroostook in Maine were tied up by a general strike for some weeks The losses to the innocent public public would run into the hundreds of mil lions Suppose that kind of thing should happen several years running How long would people permit theories in black covered books and dusty polit ical economy to interfere with some new conception of the power of gov ernment that will provide a certain means for stopping such waste and at the same time dealing out jus tice as far as our imperfect human nature will permit A great deal of interest is being aroused by the Fair committee among the farmers clubs of the country in regard to having Coun try club exhibits at the district fair this fall It is the plan of the as sociation to have these exhibits con ducted IE much the same manner as the individual exhibits they would represent a township or whoever makes up the club membership The past few years these farmers clubs lave been springing up In nearly every township and now they report a development that is not small The clubs take up ingeneral those topics of study which will be of benefit to heir interests along the lines of arming stock raising etc A aum er of farmers having had individual arm exhibits at the district fair but the idea of having these country club exhibits is a new one and one which he various clubs are taking up well Progressive Olub At a recent meeting of the Pro resslve club which includes the farmers of west Portland the com mittee which had been appointed to itovestigate the matter handed in their report that they thought the dea a good one and that they would announce their club willing to ex hibit at the fair This was the first club to announce their intention but t is expected that before the month s out there will be at least four or live more The Progressve club will give an exhibit 15x71 Another meeting pi the club will be held in one week and further plans will be discussed pleasant Ridge Club The Pleasant Ridge club of Bath and Mason townships bas not yet iad their

iaext meeting which will be on he evening of May 31 A number of the farmers in this club are much in terested In the farm exhibits and un doubtedly they will consider this idea of a club exhibit

meeting to decide the matter has been called for two week May 17th It is thought this Club will be In favor of the plan suggested SUCCESS WITH ALL RECIPES It is all nonsense asking women to change their cooking methods The methods used by their grand mother and their mothers are good enough and every cooking recipe be It oldfashioned or newfangled Is bound to be a success if the right flour is uesd My wife eays that the only flour that she has ever bought that is always the same that can always be depended upon that always brings success is MAR VEL FLOUR EXCHANGE House and lot in Nora Springs for house and lot in Mason City F A Bruce 123 W Miller Home Improvement Club The Home Improvement dub of Lake township have not yet held their meeting to decide on ques tion of the club
