Representative, MINNESOTA SELECT LIST. 709 Exchange Bank - St. Paul 215 S. 6th St. - - Mimaeapolla KNOW WHAT IT LOOKS. LIKE. The press all over the spring wheat area recently has published hundreds of columns of information in regard to the comm0n barberry bush and the tremendous damage it has done in spreading black stem rust. The pest has been intimately described in carefully drawn word pictures pre- PaTed by trained writers. Photo- graphic illustrations in the papers and faithful pen and ink reproductions of the plant on government posters have attempted to show the farmer exactly what the bush looks like. The net result of the flood of pub- licity is that the grain grower has been convinced that his losses due to black rust have been caused by the presence of the common barberry but he does not seem to know any more about identifying the bush than he did before. The average laTnan can't tell whether a barberry looks more like a current bush than a strawber - " plant. He has a hazy idea that its P-kyiea! aspect is some-here between that of the lowly cabbage and the lordly oak. He isn't certain whether to icok for it beside the babbling brook or upon the rugged hillsides, whether it -.'!ouri,-2",es best in the sunbaked fields or in shady woodlands, Tke farraer, who pays the bill for harboring the barber- viper on his land, apparently is not much better in- framed. Weed inspectors have said that the:.- can be sure land owners recognize the barberry, only when they lead them by the hand right up to the habitat of the plant and give them a formal introduction. This isn't in the nature of a criticism, by any means. It has been many years since the common barberry was of any use in the community and the present clay agriculturist doesn't go out of hi way to familiarize himself with use- les. plant-.-,.. So the farmer is in the dark and the printed word and picture appar- ently have not been entirely success- ful iv. showing him the light. Ac- cordlngly the Independent has under- taken to put or, display in its office a "horrible example" of the "wheat man's burden." We have a common barberlT bush dug up and placed in our office. If you don't know what it look like anal want to be able to meatify t when you run across it cn your farm you are cordially ined to come in and give it the "once over." Then go back home and dig up any similar growths you are able to find. Your reward will be reflt in your wheat crop this year, if you act at once, and in your eld next season, if You are too late to stop the spread of rust this summer. ADVERTISING MINNESOTA. For the purpose of making Minne- sota a greater tourist state the Min- neapolis Journal thru its Resort Bu- reau i doing a great service. The Journal has recognized in the tourist traffic an industry, which can become of first importance as a source of annual income to every community in the state, it has established an organization which thru contact with highway groups, railroads, commer- cial clubs, newspapers and various pub!ic officials, it is carrying the mes- sage of Minnesota's matchless vaca- tion facilities to every section of the country. That bureau has on display a dozen or more large photographs of Orton- ville and Big Stone Lake, sent in re- cently by this paper after having re- ceived a letter from the Journal ask- ing for them. In the letter that pa- per said. "Your community should have print- el material, covering roads, historical spots and resorts. If your locality has no such material the business men should get together a fund and commission you to publish such an in- formation pamphlet. A simple map showing the best route by highway and railroad fram Minneapolis to your town and community would be a good feature and would enable this bureau to serve you in a valuable way." In view of the fact that proper distribution is assured of the pamph- lets, without cost, we are drawing up plans and hope to be able to furnish several thousand of the pamphlets to different information bureaus in the cities :and 'ha them at the desks of MALLORY PLAYERS P At the Chau auqua.

McDOWELL Graceville, Minnesota WHY 7-- DO WE FEEL HUNGRY O IlE feeling of "*hunger" is a pe- culiar craving which we are ac- customed to say comes from the stom- acl= and which we know by experience comes when we have not had as muci: food as we are in the habit of eating. But, although the stomach appears to be the seat of this craving, it really orglnates in ther parts of the body. The stomach Is merely the organ which prepares the food for blood- making by mixing it with the "gastric Juices" and other secrlons which the stomach supplies. Tts ystem works automaticallythe stomach digesting the food and making it ready for the bitted, the blood absorbing as much as ls necessary and then calling upon the stomach for more. But the stomach acts principally as a storehouse. The sensation of being hungry disappears if we take previously prepared food-- food which has been made ready for the blood and upon which it Is not necessary for the stomach to set--In other ways than through the stomach, either lrypodermtcally or through other  means of inJeetloa. This food does not pass through the stomach, but it reaches the blood and the fei- ins of hunger vanLshe That's Why I got There, Bilikens, much aggrieved, was be- fore the court for speeding.

I I i II For Better Citizens Better Service O promote the safety first movement, the Standard Oil Company (Indiana) has created within its own organization 7,4 seImrate and distinct inquisitorial N)dies to investigate acci- dents involving Company motor equipment. These bodies are called "Safety Courts." The primary purpose of these courts is to reduce the hazard of automobile accidents on the public highway. This is directly in line with the policy of the Company to help the employee to a better un- derstanding of his obligation to his fellow citizens. The Court meets weekly and before it must ap- pear any employee, whether manager or truck driver, who has been involved in an acddent during the preceding week. The employee comes into court as defendant with his immediate superior as his attorney. The Chairman of the Safety Cxaml is the judge Other members of the Council serve as jurors. When the investigation shows that the employee has been guilty of carelessness in okerving traffic laws, penalties are fixed and punishment assessed, by t, he juts. The_punishment is.often as nove as the pmn tseit. For instance, a trucK- driver recently convicted of carelessness was removed from his position and sentenced to work for two weeks in the Company warehouse as a common laborer. The pLan is in operation throughout the 11 Middle Western States served by the Standard Oil Company (Indiana) and has been responsible for reducing automobile accidents approximately 50 percent. The spirit which pervades the "Safety Court" is to inspire employees with a sense of their re- sponsibiIity tothe community. As in the case of the Annuity System, which gives the employee a feeling of security regarding his future, and in the case of the Stock Investment Plan to promote the desire to save, the "Safety Court" has as its object the making of better and more responsible citizens who will render continuous and gTeater service to society. The Standard Oil Company (Indiana) is continu- ally studying methods for improved service through adjusting its organization to the con- stantly changing needs of the peopm oz me Middle West.
