Hands and before meals and at bed every day or at least NEWS and COMMENT By THE INDEPENDENT Raids on Moonshineers in the ad-I joining counties are netting the au-I thorities big quantities of liquor. At Canby, The News reports a raid by I the sheriff and his assistants in which ] they captured a man and his two sons, ander age, manufacturing "moon." l'he stills, five stoves, coils, washboil-I ers, and eight barrels of mash and I "moon" were taken as evidence. While[ enroute from Canby to Granite Falls] with the prisoners and "dope," they conducted another raid at St. Leo, an inland village, which netted them a prisoner, complete still and ten bar- rels of mash. This they were obliged to load on a second truck and the two cars then proceeded to Granite Falls. One of the men pleaded guilty and was fined $50 and 60 days in the coun- ty jail. The other is expected to plead guilty also. That the Commercial club of Wah- peton, N. D., is up-and-coming was manifested clearly at a recent meet- ing in the appropriation of $1,000 for the purpose of promoting the dairy industry in Richland county when making their 1922 budget. The com- mittee in charge recommends that this amount be expended in the pur- chase of dairy calves which will be given out to any boy or girl in the coun- ty and that the club take a note for the value of each calf, payable in three years, without interest and that this amount be carried in the budget un- til the club feels that the dairy indus- try has been stimulated to a sufficient degree. Operations in connection with the gravelling of state road No. 28, be- tween the Stevens county line and run- ning west to Beardsley, are being pushed rapidly and up to this time the work is finished from a point four miles east of Beardsley to a point one mile east of Graceville. The work un- der the .Connelly-Scully Co., of St. Paul is expected to be completed aboul February 10. Frank E. Millard, of Canby, besides being re-elected as a member of the State Agricultural Society at a recent meeting at St. Paul, was elected presi- dent of the Minnesota Livestock Breeders' Association. Mr. Millard succeeds T. E. Cashman, of Owatonna who had been president for the past two years. The Livestock Breeders' association has a membership of 2,450 By the election of Mr. Millard to the important positions mentioned and the recent election of Mr. Reed, of Lac qui Parle county, as president of the State Farm Bureau Federation, honor is not only conferred, upon the men mentioned but upon this section of the state as well. Sub-zero weather accompanied by high winds has caused many fires in the neighboring towns as well as in this county and the fire departments have been working "overtime." At Milbank two calls brought out the de- partment last week and at Morris the department was called to quench a fire at the N. P. Roundhouse. once a week; teeth brushed morning and night; a regular bed hour and ten hours of sleep each night with open window will set a child on the right road to health, they say. Altho simple, the clothing should provide clean, whole garments; dif- ferent clothing for each day and night; clothing suited to the climate; change of underclothing and night- gowns at least weekly; change of stockings at least twice a week; warm underclothing and stockings; heavy coat, cap and mittens for cold weath- er; and shoes free from holes and of the right size. Right recreation will be insured by the right sort of playmates; a safe, roomy place for outdoor and indoor play; at least two hours outdoor play every day; constructive and suitable playthings and tools and some one with sympathetic oversight to direct the play. WHAT IS COURTESY. One of the finest tributes to courte- sy, as well as one of the best defini- tions of it, we have ever read, is the following, from Drews' Imprint.: "Treating a customer like a rich uncle so that you may extract his coin, is not courtesy, that's .foresight. "Offering a seat to a man who en- ters your office is not courtesythat's duty. "Listening to the grumblings, growlings and groanings eL a bore without remonstrance is not ourtesy --that's forbearance. "Helping a pretty girl across the street, holding her umbrella, carrying her poodle---none of these is courtesy. The first two are a pleasure, and the last is politeness "Courtesy is doing that which noth- ing under the sun makes you d@ but human kindness. Courtesy springs from the heart. If the mind prompts the action, there is a reason; if there be a reason, it is not courtesy, for courtesy has no reason. Courtesy is good will, and good will is)prompted by the heart full of love to' be kind. "Only the generous man is truly courteous. He gives free without a thought of receiving anything in return. The generousman has devel- od kindness to sucl an extent that he considers every one as good as hiumelftreats others not as he should be treated (for generosity asks nothing) but as he ought to be treated." School Children Show Gain On Milk Diet Adding seven pounds of flesh to a pupil at the public school within a period of twenty days is the maximum obtained thru the adoption of the "Milk for Underweight Children" cam- paign inaugurated under the direction of Miss Rogashaska county nurse, in a report given out on Tuesday. Of the sixty-three children of the Ortonville Public Schools that were given milk each day, with Christmas vacation intervening in the middle of the time allotted, gains were made aS follows: 1 gained 7 pounds. 1 gained 6 pounds. 8 gained 5 pounds. 11 gamed 4 pounds. 8 gainel 3 pounds. 16 gainbd 2 pounds. 1 gained 2A pounds. 1 gained ] pound. 3 showed no gain. 3 lqst 1 poundeach. Notwithstanding that 2 pupils in the bove list were ill part of the time thereby affecting t h e percentage somewhat, the record made is consid- ered as exceptionally good. The high est gain was made by the pupils o" the sixth grade, "Have you heard today's gossip?" "No, I haven't." "Then I guess there isn't any." "BILL AND JOE." Both Go Below, and Make Big Stone Just Overflow. One Is Fat, The Other Lean, The SIlash They Made For Miles Was Seen. Last week Joe Class, Bill Johnson James Laughlin, Nels Nelson, and Ed. Rodemacher went to Mattsons on Big Stone Lake upon a fishing excursion. They went down with two autchmo- biles, and raced over the ice most of the way after leaving Browns Valley. The five men caught a nice bunch of big fish and started home on Friday afternoon, taking the ice for a speed- way. Johnson drove his racing run- about, the one with the dishpan fend- ers and timothy hay upholstering, while the other car took its smoke, as usual. About half way from Mattsons to Browns .Valley, with Bill leading, about half a mile and going strong, the occupants of the rear car lost :ight of the first car and as there was no roadway off the lake thereabouts they wondered where Bill and his Betsy speeder had gone. Finally they discovered the top of the ear sticking a few inches above the ice and pretty soon up bobbed Joe Class spouting like a whale, whereupon he calmly climbed upon the runabout top and wave his hand to the ap- proaching automobile, then looked around for Bill. Bill wasn't in sight go Joe climbed down to help rescue a perishing partner. He found a pair of wooden shoes floating near by, grabbed them, turned the object to which they were attached end for end and found Billy somewhat waterlog- ged but full of good nature, smiles. catfish and mud. Joe had popped out thru the wind- shield opening when the car went down to the watery depths, but Bill was behind the steering wheel and since he doesn't resemble a" lath in latitude he had to pry himself out. found the windshield opening too his eorporosity, was forced to unfasten the storm curtains, open the door and crawl out as best he could. The wooden shoes he wears on all cold drives anxt fishing excursions sort of annoyed him, too, for they wanted to come up first and Joe insists they did bring Bill up wrong end formost. Joe also points with pride to the fact it pays to grow perpendicular rather than upon an equatorial basis, especi- ally on fishing excursions, for you never know what might happen. It seems the extremely cold weath- er of the day previous had opened up a seam in the ice, wide enough for a car to drop in, and then froze over with thin ice and as it was solid a few' days before when the party went down, none of the drivers watched for thin ice and the Johnson ear took its dive with scarcely any warning. When Class and Johnson succeeded in" getting free of the car, which rest- ed in seven or eight feet of water, Mr. Class sort of crawled upon the top of the ,machine, Mr. Johnson con- cluded the top wouldn't support a heavy weight too and so he tried to climb out on the ice, which wouldn't bear his weight. Then he flung hi arms out over it, expecting the cloth- ing to freeze and hold him up, bu * this didn't work, so he swam back te the machine and stood on the rear deck. By this time Laughlin, Nelso and Rodemacher had arrived. They had a tow rope along which they flun, to the shipwrecked maVners ad pull ed them out of danger ;n -hrt orde .ot them into their machine and raced hack to Mattson's where the cabin hey had occupied w s still warm.

Johnson had hs " 1., dog "Bob" ong and he liko-- seaped with- '.,t conseouenees. ,Class was mnokb hs pipe when the car took the dive, he still had it n his mouth when he came up and ae kept it in his mouth all the time nd about the first thing he did was ask for a match to light it after be- ing pulled out. We don't know whether Bill's Rac- ing Betsy has been pulled out of the Jake yet or not. Mr. Mattson said he had pulled other cars out, that it wasn't a difficult task and he would rescue it in a day or so. Also Bill's wooden shoes, which were lost in the final schuffie. The weather was around zero when the accident happened and their es- cape from drowning or serious illness from the exposure is mighty lucky, but Class says a man who is destined to die peacefully of old age like he-- Bill will never die from taking too much water.--Sisseton Monitor. APPLETON BOYS OPPOSE VISIT OF BONUS BOARD Resolutions Adopted by Le- gion Post States Visit Means "Unnecessary Ex- pense." Appleton, Minn., January 18.Sug- gesting that a proposed visit of the State Bonus Board of Review to this city at this time could accomplish no good purpose, and would e an un- necessary expenditure of public funds, the local post of the American Legion at its meeting tonight unanimously adopted resolutions against the hold- ing of the proposed meeting of the Board of Review here. "It is the belief of the members of Russell Johnson Post No. 72 of the American Legion," the resolution states, "that a visit of the State Bon- us Board of Review to Appleton can accomplish and will accomplish* no good purpose and in the interest of economy in the expenditure of public funds, which this post believes have been unnecessarily expended ,by the State Bonus Board and by the Bonus Board of Review in the work of dis- bursing the money appropriated by the state for the aid of its service men and women, the post hereby respect- fully suggests that the visit of the Board of Review to Appleton be dis- pensed with." Adoption of the resolution came when it developed that officers of the post find but two disputed bonus claims in this community, and that both of these have been previously .reviewed and disallowed by the Board of Re- view after having put the claimants to considerable inconvenience and person- al expense. "Without assuming to possess the technical knowledge necessary to de- termine the strict operation of thc bonus law," the resolution further states, "but with a there knowledge of the military service records, the family history and the points of resi- dence of the claimants referred to. and as compared with similar records of other men who have long since beel paid under the act, the post ex- presses the belief that the claims of both of these men are valid and just and should be paid without further de- lay and without further unnecessary ,expenditure of public money, such as would be incurred by a visit of the State Bonus Board of Review to Ap- pleton." COURSE DRAWS 2,000 FARMERS, HOMEMAKERS Altho the total enrollment for the eighth annual Farmers and Home- makers Short Course at University Farm, January 2 to 7, was 1,556, Dr. A. V. Strom, director, and other Uni- versity Farm officials assert that more than 2,000 persons were in attendance during the week. Al persons regis- tered were given badges. Many of the attendants had none. The 1922 en- rollment, a large increase over last year, has been exceeded only on one previous year, but the actual atten- dance for the present short course was probably the largest,in history, High praise, given for the course by a large number of those attending, indicate that it was the most successful Far- mers and Homemakers Week ever held at University Farm. "It may be all right to junk these battleships," said Spiffens, "but jus ,ik of the awful w,qst." one eleven Made to SuitYourTaste We htve for years catere4 to tl cigarette mmkem of Amedcm.

Re- gardless of whether your battery is a Vesta or some other make, we will give it the same conscientious atention. When you again need a new battery, it will mean dollars in your pocket to secure 66 99 a Vesta Its patented Isolators firmly lock the plates apart, thereby preventing short-circtfiting thru plate-buckling. This feature means longer battery life, and thus lower cost per month of battery service to you. It is our desire to assist you to obtain the longest.possible life from y.our present battery. We trust that you well call occa- ions lly in order that we may be privileged to do so. Always at your Service. The Park Garage i i nl n i n Anker-Holth Cream Se arators The Filtered-Oil Oiling System Everyone familiar with oil or machinery knows that if you let dirty oil set for a while the heavy used oil and sediment will settle o the bottom and the good light oil will stay on top. This same principle i used in filtering the oil in the Anker- Holth Cream Separator. The oil reservoir is made with a pit in the bottom which catches all the sediment, water, milk, or any forai-n substance that may get into the oiling chamber in any way. Then a little pan shaped like a trough is plabed in the oiling chamber to keep the light oil on top and this heavy oil from remixing, This feature alone adds m any years o life to the Anker- Holth and many user:; tell us is worth the .price of the separator. It keeps the heavy used oil from gummmg up the gears and means easier running. There are many reasons why you should use the Anker- Holth Cream Separators and we will be glad to go over them with you. J.

"It is the belief of the members of Russell Johnson Post No. 72 of the American Legion," the resolution states, "that a visit of the State Bon- us Board of Review to Appleton can accomplish and will accomplish* no good purpose and in the interest of economy in the expenditure of public funds, which this post believes have been unnecessarily expended ,by the State Bonus Board and by the Bonus Board of Review in the work of dis- bursing the money appropriated by the state for the aid of its service men and women, the post hereby respect- fully suggests that the visit of the Board of Review to Appleton be dis- pensed with." Adoption of the resolution came when it developed that officers of the post find but two disputed bonus claims in this community, and that both of these have been previously .reviewed and disallowed by the Board of Re- view after having put the claimants to considerable inconvenience and person- al expense. "Without assuming to possess the technical knowledge necessary to de- termine the strict operation of thc bonus law," the resolution further states, "but with a there knowledge of the military service records, the family history and the points of resi- dence of the claimants referred to. and as compared with similar records of other men who have long since beel paid under the act, the post ex- presses the belief that the claims of both of these men are valid and just and should be paid without further de- lay and without further unnecessary ,expenditure of public money, such as would be incurred by a visit of the State Bonus Board of Review to Ap- pleton." COURSE DRAWS 2,000 FARMERS, HOMEMAKERS Altho the total enrollment for the eighth annual Farmers and Home- makers Short Course at University Farm, January 2 to 7, was 1,556, Dr. A. V. Strom, director, and other Uni- versity Farm officials assert that more than 2,000 persons were in attendance during the week. Al persons regis- tered were given badges. Many of the attendants had none. The 1922 en- rollment, a large increase over last year, has been exceeded only on one previous year, but the actual atten- dance for the present short course was probably the largest,in history, High praise, given for the course by a large number of those attending, indicate that it was the most successful Far- mers and Homemakers Week ever held at University Farm.

A few simple precautions now will guar- antee perfect battery service in the Spring. If your car is running your battery should be kept fully charged; if idle it should be stored by either the Wet or Dry method, both of which we will gladly ex- plain. These methods prevent freezing, which means battery ruination. Economy is the present watchword economize by giving your battery proper care. We service all makes of batteries. Re- gardless of whether your battery is a Vesta or some other make, we will give it the same conscientious atention. When you again need a new battery, it will mean dollars in your pocket to secure 66 99 a Vesta Its patented Isolators firmly lock the plates apart, thereby preventing short-circtfiting thru plate-buckling. This feature means longer battery life, and thus lower cost per month of battery service to you. It is our desire to assist you to obtain the longest.possible life from y.our present battery. We trust that you well call occa- ions lly in order that we may be privileged to do so. Always at your Service. The Park Garage i i nl n i n Anker-Holth Cream Se arators The Filtered-Oil Oiling System Everyone familiar with oil or machinery knows that if you let dirty oil set for a while the heavy used oil and sediment will settle o the bottom and the good light oil will stay on top. This same principle i used in filtering the oil in the Anker- Holth Cream Separator. The oil reservoir is made with a pit in the bottom which catches all the sediment, water, milk, or any forai-n substance that may get into the oiling chamber in any way. Then a little pan shaped like a trough is plabed in the oiling chamber to keep the light oil on top and this heavy oil from remixing, This feature alone adds m any years o life to the Anker- Holth and many user:; tell us is worth the .price of the separator. It keeps the heavy used oil from gummmg up the gears and means easier running. There are many reasons why you should use the Anker- Holth Cream Separators and we will be glad to go over them with you. J.

Hands and before meals and at bed every day or at least NEWS and COMMENT By THE INDEPENDENT Raids on Moonshineers in the ad-I joining counties are netting the au-I thorities big quantities of liquor. At Canby, The News reports a raid by I the sheriff and his assistants in which ] they captured a man and his two sons, ander age, manufacturing "moon." l'he stills, five stoves, coils, washboil-I ers, and eight barrels of mash and I "moon" were taken as evidence. While[ enroute from Canby to Granite Falls] with the prisoners and "dope," they conducted another raid at St. Leo, an inland village, which netted them a prisoner, complete still and ten bar- rels of mash. This they were obliged to load on a second truck and the two cars then proceeded to Granite Falls. One of the men pleaded guilty and was fined $50 and 60 days in the coun- ty jail. The other is expected to plead guilty also. That the Commercial club of Wah- peton, N. D., is up-and-coming was manifested clearly at a recent meet- ing in the appropriation of $1,000 for the purpose of promoting the dairy industry in Richland county when making their 1922 budget. The com- mittee in charge recommends that this amount be expended in the pur- chase of dairy calves which will be given out to any boy or girl in the coun- ty and that the club take a note for the value of each calf, payable in three years, without interest and that this amount be carried in the budget un- til the club feels that the dairy indus- try has been stimulated to a sufficient degree. Operations in connection with the gravelling of state road No. 28, be- tween the Stevens county line and run- ning west to Beardsley, are being pushed rapidly and up to this time the work is finished from a point four miles east of Beardsley to a point one mile east of Graceville. The work un- der the .Connelly-Scully Co., of St. Paul is expected to be completed aboul February 10. Frank E. Millard, of Canby, besides being re-elected as a member of the State Agricultural Society at a recent meeting at St. Paul, was elected presi- dent of the Minnesota Livestock Breeders' Association. Mr. Millard succeeds T. E. Cashman, of Owatonna who had been president for the past two years. The Livestock Breeders' association has a membership of 2,450 By the election of Mr. Millard to the important positions mentioned and the recent election of Mr. Reed, of Lac qui Parle county, as president of the State Farm Bureau Federation, honor is not only conferred, upon the men mentioned but upon this section of the state as well. Sub-zero weather accompanied by high winds has caused many fires in the neighboring towns as well as in this county and the fire departments have been working "overtime."

Altho simple, the clothing should provide clean, whole garments; dif- ferent clothing for each day and night; clothing suited to the climate; change of underclothing and night- gowns at least weekly; change of stockings at least twice a week; warm underclothing and stockings; heavy coat, cap and mittens for cold weath- er; and shoes free from holes and of the right size. Right recreation will be insured by the right sort of playmates; a safe, roomy place for outdoor and indoor play; at least two hours outdoor play every day; constructive and suitable playthings and tools and some one with sympathetic oversight to direct the play. WHAT IS COURTESY. One of the finest tributes to courte- sy, as well as one of the best defini- tions of it, we have ever read, is the following, from Drews' Imprint.: "Treating a customer like a rich uncle so that you may extract his coin, is not courtesy, that's .foresight. "Offering a seat to a man who en- ters your office is not courtesythat's duty. "Listening to the grumblings, growlings and groanings eL a bore without remonstrance is not ourtesy --that's forbearance. "Helping a pretty girl across the street, holding her umbrella, carrying her poodle---none of these is courtesy. The first two are a pleasure, and the last is politeness "Courtesy is doing that which noth- ing under the sun makes you d@ but human kindness. Courtesy springs from the heart. If the mind prompts the action, there is a reason; if there be a reason, it is not courtesy, for courtesy has no reason. Courtesy is good will, and good will is)prompted by the heart full of love to' be kind. "Only the generous man is truly courteous. He gives free without a thought of receiving anything in return. The generousman has devel- od kindness to sucl an extent that he considers every one as good as hiumelftreats others not as he should be treated (for generosity asks nothing) but as he ought to be treated." School Children Show Gain On Milk Diet Adding seven pounds of flesh to a pupil at the public school within a period of twenty days is the maximum obtained thru the adoption of the "Milk for Underweight Children" cam- paign inaugurated under the direction of Miss Rogashaska county nurse, in a report given out on Tuesday. Of the sixty-three children of the Ortonville Public Schools that were given milk each day, with Christmas vacation intervening in the middle of the time allotted, gains were made aS follows: 1 gained 7 pounds. 1 gained 6 pounds. 8 gained 5 pounds. 11 gamed 4 pounds. 8 gainel 3 pounds. 16 gainbd 2 pounds. 1 gained 2A pounds. 1 gained ] pound. 3 showed no gain. 3 lqst 1 poundeach. Notwithstanding that 2 pupils in the bove list were ill part of the time thereby affecting t h e percentage somewhat, the record made is consid- ered as exceptionally good. The high est gain was made by the pupils o" the sixth grade, "Have you heard today's gossip?" "No, I haven't." "Then I guess there isn't any." "BILL AND JOE." Both Go Below, and Make Big Stone Just Overflow. One Is Fat, The Other Lean, The SIlash They Made For Miles Was Seen. Last week Joe Class, Bill Johnson James Laughlin, Nels Nelson, and Ed. Rodemacher went to Mattsons on Big Stone Lake upon a fishing excursion. They went down with two autchmo- biles, and raced over the ice most of the way after leaving Browns Valley. The five men caught a nice bunch of big fish and started home on Friday afternoon, taking the ice for a speed- way. Johnson drove his racing run- about, the one with the dishpan fend- ers and timothy hay upholstering, while the other car took its smoke, as usual. About half way from Mattsons to Browns .Valley, with Bill leading, about half a mile and going strong, the occupants of the rear car lost :ight of the first car and as there was no roadway off the lake thereabouts they wondered where Bill and his Betsy speeder had gone. Finally they discovered the top of the ear sticking a few inches above the ice and pretty soon up bobbed Joe Class spouting like a whale, whereupon he calmly climbed upon the runabout top and wave his hand to the ap- proaching automobile, then looked around for Bill. Bill wasn't in sight go Joe climbed down to help rescue a perishing partner. He found a pair of wooden shoes floating near by, grabbed them, turned the object to which they were attached end for end and found Billy somewhat waterlog- ged but full of good nature, smiles. catfish and mud. Joe had popped out thru the wind- shield opening when the car went down to the watery depths, but Bill was behind the steering wheel and since he doesn't resemble a" lath in latitude he had to pry himself out. found the windshield opening too his eorporosity, was forced to unfasten the storm curtains, open the door and crawl out as best he could. The wooden shoes he wears on all cold drives anxt fishing excursions sort of annoyed him, too, for they wanted to come up first and Joe insists they did bring Bill up wrong end formost. Joe also points with pride to the fact it pays to grow perpendicular rather than upon an equatorial basis, especi- ally on fishing excursions, for you never know what might happen. It seems the extremely cold weath- er of the day previous had opened up a seam in the ice, wide enough for a car to drop in, and then froze over with thin ice and as it was solid a few' days before when the party went down, none of the drivers watched for thin ice and the Johnson ear took its dive with scarcely any warning. When Class and Johnson succeeded in" getting free of the car, which rest- ed in seven or eight feet of water, Mr. Class sort of crawled upon the top of the ,machine, Mr. Johnson con- cluded the top wouldn't support a heavy weight too and so he tried to climb out on the ice, which wouldn't bear his weight. Then he flung hi arms out over it, expecting the cloth- ing to freeze and hold him up, bu * this didn't work, so he swam back te the machine and stood on the rear deck. By this time Laughlin, Nelso and Rodemacher had arrived. They had a tow rope along which they flun, to the shipwrecked maVners ad pull ed them out of danger ;n -hrt orde .ot them into their machine and raced hack to Mattson's where the cabin hey had occupied w s still warm.

Johnson had hs " 1., dog "Bob" ong and he liko-- seaped with- '.,t conseouenees. ,Class was mnokb hs pipe when the car took the dive, he still had it n his mouth when he came up and ae kept it in his mouth all the time nd about the first thing he did was ask for a match to light it after be- ing pulled out. We don't know whether Bill's Rac- ing Betsy has been pulled out of the Jake yet or not. Mr. Mattson said he had pulled other cars out, that it wasn't a difficult task and he would rescue it in a day or so. Also Bill's wooden shoes, which were lost in the final schuffie.

Appleton, Minn., January 18.Sug- gesting that a proposed visit of the State Bonus Board of Review to this city at this time could accomplish no good purpose, and would e an un- necessary expenditure of public funds, the local post of the American Legion at its meeting tonight unanimously adopted resolutions against the hold- ing of the proposed meeting of the Board of Review here. "It is the belief of the members of Russell Johnson Post No. 72 of the American Legion," the resolution states, "that a visit of the State Bon- us Board of Review to Appleton can accomplish and will accomplish* no good purpose and in the interest of economy in the expenditure of public funds, which this post believes have been unnecessarily expended ,by the State Bonus Board and by the Bonus Board of Review in the work of dis- bursing the money appropriated by the state for the aid of its service men and women, the post hereby respect- fully suggests that the visit of the Board of Review to Appleton be dis- pensed with." Adoption of the resolution came when it developed that officers of the post find but two disputed bonus claims in this community, and that both of these have been previously .reviewed and disallowed by the Board of Re- view after having put the claimants to considerable inconvenience and person- al expense. "Without assuming to possess the technical knowledge necessary to de- termine the strict operation of thc bonus law," the resolution further states, "but with a there knowledge of the military service records, the family history and the points of resi- dence of the claimants referred to. and as compared with similar records of other men who have long since beel paid under the act, the post ex- presses the belief that the claims of both of these men are valid and just and should be paid without further de- lay and without further unnecessary ,expenditure of public money, such as would be incurred by a visit of the State Bonus Board of Review to Ap- pleton."

"It may be all right to junk these battleships," said Spiffens, "but jus ,ik of the awful w,qst." one eleven Made to SuitYourTaste We htve for years catere4 to tl cigarette mmkem of Amedcm.

The Park Garage i i nl n i n Anker-Holth Cream Se arators The Filtered-Oil Oiling System Everyone familiar with oil or machinery knows that if you let dirty oil set for a while the heavy used oil and sediment will settle o the bottom and the good light oil will stay on top. This same principle i used in filtering the oil in the Anker- Holth Cream Separator. The oil reservoir is made with a pit in the bottom which catches all the sediment, water, milk, or any forai-n substance that may get into the oiling chamber in any way. Then a little pan shaped like a trough is plabed in the oiling chamber to keep the light oil on top and this heavy oil from remixing, This feature alone adds m any years o life to the Anker- Holth and many user:; tell us is worth the .price of the separator. It keeps the heavy used oil from gummmg up the gears and means easier running. There are many reasons why you should use the Anker- Holth Cream Separators and we will be glad to go over them with you. J. D. l COMPANY
