But almost any pig does one scratch its side or bacon sec Lion it will lie down and grunt in a contented manner so long as the scratching continues Which if it feels as good to a pig to gel its sides

so Therefore if this column doesnt appear next week that is the reason Everything is in good shape in the North Light Suburbs and we feel it is safe to be gone for a week or Speaking of the North Light Sub urbs our friend Dean Miller spent some time in it fast week trimming up some shade trees including some of ours And from the results fie obtained we would say that a little tree trimming is well worth while j WHEN TREES ARE TRIMMED AS THEY SHOULD BE THEY MAKE A PRET TY SIGHT TO SEE A Now comes a story about a squir rel that tried to store nuts in a hol low tree that was hollow clear through with an opening at the bot tom As the story goes the squirrel found a walnut hiked up the tree with it and dropped it into the hole at the top of the hollow The nut dropped to the bottom and rolled out on to the ground The squirrel came down the tree found the nut took it back up and again dropped it in the same place with the same results It kept this up for some lime until an onlooker picked up the nut and threw it away Where upon the squirrel no doubt think ing it had laid up a winter supply of food went away from there Sounds rather squirrelly but thats the way we heard it And E P writes in to itk what is the difference between ave nue and a street and what makes one out of what To which we would reply by saying knew not Beth of these animals seem to stray over cities without rhyme or reason and one is liable te run into them un expectedly almost anywhere Her Local Livestock HOGS tPhune JOGi For Saturday 25c lower Good light lights 1CO170 S1650 Good light lights 170180

it used to was in the not too long ago other days it would be something At the best a good picker could turn out around 75 bushels a day daylight to dark Imagine a fellow starting out to pick some 150 acres of 80 bushel to the acre corn It would take con siderable time to do the job A w Which when we were on the farm in the long ago corn husking was our biggest pain in the well known neck Out in
