Man and beast require salt to pro-
mote the flow of gastric juice. De-
prived of salt, indigestion will result.
It has been said that the failure of
Napoleon’s drive on Moscow was caus- the loss of his salt supply. With-
out salt his soldiers weakened and
many died.
In an enlightening account of salt
history, The Progressive Grocer says
that salt is known as “sodium chlor-
ide” in chemistry and as “halite” in’
geology. It is found in the ocean, in
salt lakes and in earth deposits the
same as coal.
Sea water yields one-quarter pound
of salt to a gallon, water in the Great
Salt Lake, one and three-quarter
pounds to a gallon, and in the Dead
Sea, two and one-quarter pounds to a
gallon. The United States produces
over 99 per cent. of the salt consumed
in this country. Our production in
1928 was 7,130,713 tons, valued at
$36,837,162. The famous mines of
Wieleczka, Poland, have been known
of since 1000 A. D. A brine spring
was found on Avery’s Island, Louisia-
na, by a deer hunter in 1791. The
Kansas mines were discovered by an
oil-well driller who left them in dis-
gust. They are about six miles wide
and one hundred miles long. The
Michigan mines are the deepest in the
world. It took three years to reach
the deposits, which are 1,150 feet be-
low the surface.
There are general gradings of salt
known as rock salt, extra coarse salt,
ranging from the size of your finger
on down, and fine table salt. Free-
running salt is prepared by adding
calcium phosphate, which is a bone-
builder and does not impair the puri-
ty. Iodine is a natural content of salt
and when it has not been removed in
the process of evaporation, or it has
been replaced later, such salt is a goi-
tre preventive. Celery salt is prepar-
ed in combination with celery seeds
and onion salt is salt combined with
ground dehydrated (evaporated) on-

Our two church congregations, the
Methodist and Lutheran, have very
wisely decided to hold a combination
picnic next Saturday, at Hecla park.
This shows the manifestation of the
proper kind of spirit prevailing in our
community. A good attendance and
an enjoyable time is assured. It is es-
timated that between four and five
hundred boys and girls will respond to
the call. 3
Poets may live a century of years,
but they never grow old. It is univer-
sally conceded that they stand among
the highest and foremost men, at the
head of the human race. Their mem-
ory is a sweet-smelling immortal flow-
er. If any men are inspired, the poets
are. Their speech is the purest, their
ideas the grandest, their sentiments
the most divine. Paul, the most elo-
quent man of his age, was a poet, with
reverence and sincerity. Jesus of
Nazareth was a poet. The prophets
of Heaven’s interpreters were poets.
I see a notice in one of the papers,
emanating from a certain beauty doc-
tor, who solicits her patrons to call at
her office and have their knees paint-
ed. We are surely living in a fast age
and progressing beyond comprehen-
sion. Our girls can be accommodated
right here at home. Our artistic
painter, Jack Noll, is onto his job, and
is always eager to accommodate the
most fastidious patrons. He is up-to-
date in all kinds of tedious work re-
quiring special attention, and it is.
needless to say that this kind of work
especially appeals to him.
Why is it so? The average men
farmers, in the past few years have
become more enlightened to taking
advantage of the up-to-date methods
of farming simply because it means
dollars and cents in their pockets. But
the women have failed to keep up to
the standard. A lady visitor recently
said to me, “We are so set in our ways
and the way my grandmother did
things is still good enough for me.”
This state of affairs is all the more de-
plorable because it is so unnecessary;
for all it does is to produce an over-
worked housewife, an illy managed
home and a family unfit to produce
their best results. The woman on the
average farm home spends fifteen or
sixteen hours per day doing house
work. Why? Because she is using
her hands and not her head in the
caring for her home. A household, to
be successful, must run on a business
basis, the woman in charge of it us-
ing her brain to do the biggest share
of the work, regardless of how capa-
ble she considers her hands. House-
holds run along the old-fashioned hit
or miss ways are extravagant from a
cash standpoint, and they are sinful
in their waste of human strength and
efficiency. We must adopt modern im-
provements, make our kitchen first-
class and our efforts will be rewarded
with half the expense.
Our farmers in Centre county seem
to be getting along amazingly well,
things seem to be coming their way;
our wagon roads have been wonder-
fully improved the past ten years, and
our railroad facilities are superb, and
all the products of the farm are in
great demand in the nearby towns;
our means for communication are
modern in every detail; rural free de-
livery of mail and telephone lines are
available all cver the country, and we
are favored with exceptional educa-
tional advantages. However, there is
room for the advancement of special
forms of horticulture and farming.
The production of truck and fruit
growing are the most profitable en-
terprises awaiting development. In
the course of time Centre will rank
among the first agricultural counties.
Fruit growing is neither difficult nor
expensive, when compared with the
rewards in sight. Fresh fruit from
your own trees or vines is a luxury
you might as well enjoy if you have
only a small lot. Many kinds and va-
rieties can be planted on the lawn or
along the fence for ornamental effect
as well as for the luscious fruits you
obtain. It is a foregone conclusion
that fruit growing for profit brings
greater rewards for the labor requir-

ed than any other crop. As a matter
of fact the man who puts his heart in-
to it, studies the proper principles and
methods and puts them into effect will
have the greatest success. It is to be
regretted that many of our farmers
aré, slow in realizing what money
there is in raising fruit judiciously.
To those about to embark in fruit
raising I would say, choose varieties
that are adapted to your particular
requirements as well as to your soil
and climate. Select varieties that will
ripen at the season when prices are
the highest. For home use, your se-
lection should include early, medium
and late varieties, so as to cover as
long a ripening season as possible.
Farmers be wise and don’t neglect
fruit raising.

County Horse Pulling Contests In-
Applications for the staging of
horse pulling contests at farmers’ pic-
nics and county fairs are still coming
in to Joseph M. Vial, horse extension
specialists at The Pennsylvania State
College. Last week the Blair and
Huntingdon county fairs joined the
rapidly increasing list of manage-
ments dating up the new dynamome-
ter which has been received at Penn
State from the Iowa State College.
There are now ten counties in which
the “How much can your horses
pull?” contests will be held during
August, September and October. Oth-
ers have made inquiries and Vial ex-
pects to have the “plllometer” busy
throughout the county fair season.
The first appearance of the dynamo-
meter will be at the Susquehanna Val-
ley Farmers’ picnic at Rolling Green
park, near Sunbury, on August 12th.
The Blair county contests will be held
August 19-22; Westmoreland, August
27; Huntingdon county September 1
and: 2; Mercer county, 3 and 4; Ches-
ter county, 11 and 12; Jefferson, 15
and 16; Fayette, 17 and 18; Beaver,
24 and 25 and Bucks October 7 and 8.
No difficulty is being experienced by
Vial and county agents in obtaining
horse and mule team entrants for the
contests; team owners appear very
anxious to see what their teams can
really pull in competition,

Twain’s Description of
Missouri River Wate
In one of his return trips to the
state of his boyhood, Mark Twain
wrote a friend he had found one thing
that had not changed—the mulatto
complexion of Missouri river water—
and probably a score of centuries
would not change it. “It comes out
of the turbulent, bank-caving river.”
he explained, “and every thimbleful of
it holds an acre of land in solution.
I got this fact from the bishop of the
diocese. If you will let your glass
stand half an hour you can separate
the land from the water as easy as
Genesis, and then you will find them
both good—the one to eat, the other
to drink. The land is very nourishing,
the water is thoroughly wholesome.
The one appeases hunger, the other,
thirst. But the natives do not take
them separately, but together, as na-
ture mixed them. When they find an
inch of mud in the bottom of the
glass, they stir it up and take a draft
as they would gruel. It is difficult for
the stranger to get used to this batter,
but once used he will prefer it to wa-
