Their Superiority to the Cat as an Asset Is Asserted. To The New York Herald: I had not supposed it possible that in 1020 any correspondent of your paper could make the assertion that "a cat is more useful than all the birds can possibly be" to farmers. Therefore I was surprised to read A C. Wcek'3 letter. For some years in our public e schools in the country even the been taught the great value of birds from an economic point of view. The migratory bird law has attracted much attention and the bulletins of the Department of Agriculture have been so carefully studied that I though every one living in the country or the suburbs understood the devastion wrought by insects, and apart from the costly and difficult job of spraying trees and bushes the only way of keeping the hordes' of marauders in check is by the help of the birds. Elaborate calculations have been made by biological experts and it has been determined how many insects are put out of commission during1 the nesting season by a single pair of adult birds through the destruction of the insects themselves and their eggs and lavae, which would later develop into insects. The amount when multiplied by the number of birds in a single State becomes almost unbelievable. The cat is valuable to the farmer's wife by killing the mice in the pantry, but carefully set traps would dispose of these and very few cats would or could cope with the gray squirrels or the great rats which prey upon the grain in the farmers' granaries. As for the field mice so destructive to fruit trees, the slow sailing hawks, not the swift small chicken hawks but the butecs, cope with them more effectively than domestic cats, whose name implies their nature and habits. Of all the farmer's assets insectivorous birds are among the most valF. L. Russell, uable. New York, January 3. child-hav- The Breckenridge News JNO. D.

JANUARY 12, 1921 During the months of January and February, which arc sonic times considered dull months with merchants, and it usually is with those who slack up in their advertising, this article, taken from the hditor and Publishers .. magazine is well worth reading. It says: Advertising is more than a business tonic; it is a business necessity. That is why it is needed all the time Of all advertising, that which carries with it the greatest waste is what is known as the once in awhile kmtl. Successful advertisers arc the kind that keep it up persistently. They arc judged successful because of the resulting success of their business. Up until four years ago there was a crtatn soap that was known around in the world It had been the most persistently advertised article offered day the markets of the world during the previous hundred years.. Irom thesmall this soap was first put on the market in 181:! it was advertised, in a way, but persistently and continuously. For the last :0 years it has been products in the world. Then the directors decided one of the because the factory was selling to capacity, advertising! could be disconthat tinued as a useless expense. In less than' one year from that time the business of the firm dropped X, per cent on volume. That soap is again being advertised and we understand it was necessary to spend $.1,000,000 in extra ooo publicity, over previous appropriations to get back to normal. Mr. H. A.

Yes, a long time ago; it was in 1777 that a brave little girl and a brave English General met each other, and all about a cowl It was during the war of American Independence when Lord Cornwallis was General of the English army. An English foraging party had invaded the farm belonging to Major Rudulph and carried off a valuable cow, the especial pet of Anne Rudulph, twelve years old. When the English soldier took the cow she implored them to spare it; then, failing to move them, she rushed to the stable, saddled her spirited pony and galloped off to the quarter's of the English General Cornwallis, hoping to reach him before her pet cow would be killed. When she reached the British lines, the guard demanded her business. "I must sec the General at once." "But I must know your business before I can let you pass. The General must not be troubled by trifles. Where have you come from?" "From Darby, and my business is' to see the General at once; no one can tell him but myself," cried the exited child. It was late in the day and Lord Cornwallis was with a number of officers, when the child was brought to HIGH LIVING AND PLAIN THINKING. There is a town out in Ohio (let it be nameless) which has just perpetrated an exploit that is too typical to be flattering. A noted journalist cast some asper-ion- s Now the town notifies him that it has built a huge and expensive hotel, and invites him to come back and try again. This is, of course, hospitable; but it is hospitality of the show-windovariety. This ambition of a town to have a smart hotel as much like a w on its hotel accommodations.

There was deep silence and then roars of laughter from the officers. The young girl's eyes flashed, but she stood firm. "Why did your father not come?" asked the General. She replied. "My father is from home, but General, while you keep me here they may be killing my cow." "And where are your brothers?" asked the General. "The eldest is with General Gates, the second is with Harry Lee," she replied, "and my father is with General Washington." "So. do, then I think you are a little rebel," said the General. "Yes, sir, but I want my cow." Lord Cornwallis was a noble gentleman. He said: "Yau are a brave child, you shall have your cow, and something more." Then, stooping, he detached one of his diamond shoe buckels, and gave it to her, saying, "Keep this and remember Lord Cornwallis can appreciate courage and truth, even in a little rebel."

One would hardly suppose so. But at all events we are quite keen about "high living and plain thinking." There is a small city in Maine where the business men (one of them had evidently been down to Broadway) thought it would put the town on the way to have a double row of brilliant electric lights the length of Main .treet at jeast in the business district. They were planning to spend the town's money quite generously for this imitation of a Gay White Way. (Or is it the Primrose Path?) Anyhow a sensible woman went to the Board of Alderman and told them that the High School boys and girls were being obliged to leave the town after graduation to find something to do or else spend their lives in minor jobs at home. She said, what any of them might have seen on a little reflection, that it was less to impress strangers with the it is of the town than to keep their own best blood at home busy and wholeome. A town, like a person, has two ways to invest its money: One, where it will show; the other, where it will count. As between exterior decorations of one's back, or interior decorations of one's brain, what rationat being could pause to choose? As between putting one's town on the map with a cheap and vulgar imitation of the cheapest and most vulgar aspects of New York, life, or keeping the town's young folks on the home map, where is the choice? tin-horn at THE SALT BOX CRADLE When I see little girls today With dolls. so fine and toys so gay, I wonder just what they would. say To' see a Salt Box Cradle!

"The outstanding and unprecedented feature of metal mining in California in 190," the survey said, "was the closing down of a great number of the largest gold and cooper mines, particularly in the mother lode region, where some of the mines that were once among the largest in the State stopped work, several of them permanently. "Another feature of the year was the restriction of the supply of power c by companies in the Fall, which affected the deep mines of all .classes, as well as the dredging companies. For lack of this usual power some mines had to cloe altogether and others were compelled to restrict operations. "The hardships suffered by the gold miners in the foothill and mountain countries have partly depopulated towns and camps and even counties.

Davis of Ohio has already accepted , ar corn, oats, barley, potatoes, apples, peaches, pears, sorghum, soy beans and clover seed; the same production as in l'Jlu of beans, cowpeas and sweet potatoes; and decreased production of tobacco, wheat, rye and hay. Hurley tobacco production in the State increased (according to estimates) from about 213,000,-00- 0 pounds in 1919 to about 230.500,-00- 0 pounds in 1920. These estimates may be slightly revised later when more complete checking up of yields is possible. The reduction of dark tobacco acreage in Western Kentucky together with light yield in some other counties in 1920 reduced the estimates of the State's total tobacco crop of all types from 498,000,000 pounds in 1919 to 407,500,000 pounds of all types together in 1920. The acreage of wheat sown in Kentucky in the fall of 1920 is estimated at 025,000 acres, the same as in 1919, the condition of the crop Dec. 1, 1920, being 84 per cent of normal compared to 80 per cent Dec. 1, 1919, and an average condition Dec. 1, of 90. The total acreage of wheat sown in the United States in the fall of 1920 is estimated at 40,005, 000 acres, of 97.2 per cent of the acreage sown in the fall of 1919. The condition of the United States wheat crop Dec. 1, 1920, is given as 87.9 per cent of normal compared to 85.2 Dec. 1. average Dec. 1, of 1919, and a 88.4 per cent.
