Merchants are unable to purchase
many of the items they would stock.
From now on until the Germans and
the Japs are licked we are going to
learn to get along with less and less
of the things we have been used to—
things we thought we could not do
without—and fussing and fuming
about it will not remedy conditions.
The remedy will come when enough
of those fighting with the Axis
forces are under the sod.

Some of the gardening lore one

stance. wc were being told that a
fall garden can be planted as late as
Sept. 15. That's true—it can be plant-
ed—but with a frost coming • Sept.
27, indications are that those of us

going to come through the winter in

much like any other automobile
trailer which may be seen on’ the
highways or in the tourist’s camps.
The Army’s trailers are used as
traveling hospitals, dental clinics
and testing laboratories.

units are hauled to their destination
and the trucks released for other pur-

No Time to Permit Waste
Of Food and Feed By Rats
Many people are coming to the
county agent’s office for a rat pois-
on formula, says Agent Jack McCul-
lough. By this he takes it. that the
rats are getting numerous and are
no doubt doing considerable damage.
“A simple formula is to mix with
a spoon (not hands) one pound of
Barium carbonate poison with five
pounds of hamburger meat, or a pro-
portion of 5 to 1.
"To get the best results small bits
of hamburger meat should be put out
two nights without poison, and on the
third night put out the mixed poison
bait. Place the poison where the
rats eat and not where they stay.”

WITH THE CALLS
It’s true we usually can put through
quickly your long distance telephone
calls to towns near-by. But when you
send your voice to far cities, it may
travel on lines jammed to the limit
with calls that help move troops,
make planes, build tanks.
We can’t put up more lines, because
most of the metal has gone to war.
So please help us in a vital job. Make
as few calls as possible to war centers
or cities far away, and please plan to
keep such calls short. It will help
clear the way for the calls of war.
