Eleven prizes were given pupils for essays submitted in a contest on "How I Can Make the Highways More Safe," First state honors were award- ed a paper prepared by Alfred Miller of Ortonville, whose paper likewise represents Minnesota before the Na- tional Essay Committee, He also re- ceives, as state winner, a gold medal and fifteen dollars, second honors, a silver medal and ten dollars, were awarded Miss Frances Walsh, 322 Sixth Avenue, North, a pupil in the South St. Paul public school.

The gen- eral sentiment of those present fay, ored a fair this year and to use every effort to make the fair the very best possible with the mount of funds available. J. C. Bender tendered his resigna- tion as president, which was accepted, and appointment of Pat Daly Was made to fill the vacancy. Because o$ flnaoial stringency in which the society has been placed on account of the inclement weather dur- ing the last fair, there had been con- siderable talk of dropping urther plans for a continuance of a 1922 fair, Failure of the county commis- sioners to appropriate the amount re- quested added to the discouragoment of the officers. In spite of these han- dicaps the association, backed by the united support of the different towns in the county, and farmers clubs, has decided that a fair can be held this year.

GOOD THINGS FOR THK FAMILY VERYBODY in the household likes cinnamon rolls or ehmamon buns. The following is a reliable recipe: Take one cupful each of milk, water and sugar, two eggs, three-fourths of a cupful of shortening, one yeast cake and a teaspoonful of salt. Scald the milk and while it is still hot pour it over the shortening and add the sugar and hot water; when cool add the yeast cake which has been softened in one-half cupful of water, add the salt and' enough flour to make a batter which drops from the spoon. Beat it thoroughly and let tand In a warm place over night. In the morning add the well beaten eggs and flour to make a dough whlch can be kneaded ; knead lightly and well, put back into a well buttered bowl and. let rise until double its bulk. Separate into two parts and roll out into a sheet. Spread this with soft butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and well w'ashed and dried currants. Roll In a long roll and cut the buns in Inch slice Place them in a pan and set in a warm place to become light Bake in a moderate oven with a grate under them It there l danger of burning. If the family llkee sticky buns put one tablespoonful of butter, one-half cupful of brown sugar, onhal cup- fl of ap, and one-half cupfl of wate in a sauce pan afl boil until thlek. Add errant to It.

Trunk Highway Funds Being Used Mainly for Grading and Graveling. Paving is taking about ten cents of each 1921 and 1922 state trunk high- way dollars, more than 90 per cent of the fund under the Babcock Good Poads law being used for inte- nance, graveling, grading, bridges and similar work to distribute early benefits widely on the 7,000 mile sys- tem. The foregoing system is made on official figures in a state highway bul- letin this week outlining methods au- thorized by the legislature for "financ- ling the trunk highway program. The paving summary lists 294 miles of which 58.65 miles is by the state and paid for direct from trunk funds, and the remainder or 235 miles is by coun- ties acting under refundment and re- imbursement laws. Chas. M. Babcock, state highway commissioner, points out that the state is building but one ufile of hard- surfacing while four miles are laid by! counties controlling funds which must i be spent within their boundaries and! subject only to state specifications and l supervision. 2%e state paving at an average of $28,787 a mile cost $1,688,333 or about one-tenth of the total trunk fund reve- nue of $16,170,000 for the 2-year per-! iod. The biggest project is that of 25 miles of concrete at $630,554 on T. H. No. I bebween Nortlffleld and Westcott .only recently started. Fourteen counties have filed flaimq for $3,717,518 of refundments for 116 miles of paving at an average of $32,058 ant nearly sll have been charged to the trunk highway fund, i the bulletin shows. Sherburne county I claims total $52027; Watonwan, $518,780; Hennepin $846,488; Ram- say, $338,605; Dakota, $276,736; Stevens $252,135; C%isago, $243,442, and Kandiyohi county, $237,413. i Reimbursement projects in seven counties aggregate $3,673,811 for 119 miles at $30,859 average. St. Louis county leads with $1,737577; Itaska, $34291; Benton, 559,474; Morrison $336,089 and scattered jobs maline up the balance under the special legisla- tive previsions. "The Independent is extending good roads in its field--ontinulng an in- valuable contribution to the Mnnv- sota good roads movement before the Amendment No. 1 cmpaign in which it took an important part. And thiq is but one public service of many given by the nvspapers of the state." The statement was made by Chas. stoner. He had just received an offi- cial report that following announce- ment in tiffs and other papers of a drive against autotax slackers re- veipts in the license department had suddenly doubled and were averag- ing $12,500 a day. "Here is an added demonstration of the force of newspaper publicity and advertising," continued Mr. Babcock. "During the war it exerted strong in fluence on the use of our savings and in many other directions, even to what we ate. Now it is collecting delin- quent taxes for the state and at the same time saving newspaper readers more penalties anal costs.
