Two-Minute Sermon DISSATISFACTION At a banquet of the Chamber of Commerce in Plainville, an ex-presi- dent ql~oted me as saying: "Let us be tremendously dissatisfied." Now I do not remember having, said this thing, but it has been my thought. The man who is satisfied has reached the end of his activity, the end of ambition, the end of development. He becomes like a pool of stagnant water--scum rises to the top, ooze settles beneath it. God forbid that before our eyes we should ever cease to hold our ideal; that ~e sho,fld ever cease to strive for something bett.n" than we have attained. A "tremen- dous dissatisfaction" with ourselves and our attainments will spur us on to greater achievement. The self- righteous alone are satisfied. Swin- nerton has said that "a man may be satisfied with his circumstances, but not with his achievements, and ~he man who is satisfied with what he has done has no future but the dust-bin." In the old days when a man pra- seted a new idea to the world they burned him for a heretic. Nowadays they elect him president of the cor- poration. ---o--- The best way to make a short win- ter is to have a note come due in March.

KRAMER Jeweler and Optometrist Salid~, Colo. t COLORADO FARMS DECREASING IN NUMBERS, BUT ACREAGE HARVESTED SHOW BIG GROWTH Although there are nearly 3,000 fewer farms actua'ly operated in Colorado at present than were being worked in 1920, the farm acreage in the state is increasing steadily, ac- cording to reports recently completed by the Colorado Co-Operative Crop Reporting servi .'e. The service. which is composed of the state boo, el of immigration and the bureau of crop and livestock estimates of the federal department of agriculture, reports that the average size of farms in the state ha~ increased sufficiently in the past decade t.~ more than' ac- count for the reduct'-., ~ in the num. her of farms. The decrease in the number of farms does not "ndicate any failing off of agricultur~ in the state, the report says, but on the contrary in~ d-'cates a consistent a,] healthy i,- crease. The perfection of improved machinery for farm operations has m~de it possible for the indi~iduaI farmer to handle much more acreage today than he could have handled in 1920. The combined harvester, the tractor and other :omparatively new farm implements have resulted in an mcrease of more than 80 acres in tl=.e average size of farms since 1920 and have.resulted in the consolida- tion of many holdings into larger farm units. TAKES SOME BLAME The farm tractor is receiving some of the blame for tl,e present low prices of corn, oats and hay. The tractor is not doing its part, it is said, in the consun,.ption of farm crops. While farm surpluses in. crease and prices decline, it adheres to a diet of gasoline and lubricating oil, says the St. Louis Globe-Demo- crat. The plow horse, o~ the other hand~ is a large consumer, as well as a producer, of agricultural pro- ducts. There is nothing "he likes better than eating away a farm sur- p:us whether it he a surp]uss of oats, corn or hay.. Ten years ago there were 21,000,000 horses on the farms of the country and in 1929 there were but 14,000,000. HOW MUCH DO YOU KNOW?. QUESTIONS 1.

Wheat, corn rye WHAT WE THINK --o-- Politicians who bury the hatchet always leave the end of the handle ~ticking out. ~o--- The tunney'spent for tobacco in this nation would pave every main road in the United States in a few years. We hear a lot of complaint about the good roads tax but noth- ing about the cost of tobacco. ~o--- We watched a group of workmen on a job the other day. There was enough time wasted to cut the cost of the job 30 per cent. It is our notion that it would do every man working for wages in this country good to get on the other side of the counter some time. Wheat is getting lower and lower in price, but just as soon as they find NOTICE OF FINAL SETTLEMENT AND DETERMINATION OF HEIRSHIP Estate of John A. Welch, Deceased. No .......

A political headquarters will claim victory for its candidate when it knows victory isn't anywhere in sight. Politicians get so used to fooling the people that they fool themselves. ---o-- A lot of things are done by this guvernnient of ours that show less good business judgment than that possessed by a seven dollar grocery clerk. ~o-.- Co-operation would solve most of our problems. Freckles would be a nice coat of tan if they'd get to- gether. STRANGE BUT TRUE --o-- The First Baptist church of Ben- ton, IIL, has taken over the operation of a gasoline filling station to help meet operating expenses. ~O~ The Department of Agriculture has determined that a bee will fly up to 8 miles in search of honey. A out the farmer has sold all his wheat pound of honey, it is estimated repre. the price will soar. ]gents 300~000 miles of flight by bees. RUPTURE EXPERT HERE C. F. Redlich, Minneapolis. Minn., will demonstrate without charge his unequalled method at SALIDA, COLO. MONDAY, DEC. 15 at ~he RAINBOW HOTEL from 10 A. M. to ~ P. M. Evening by telephone appointment Mr. C. F. Redlich says: The "Perfect Retention Shields" hold the rupture perfectly, no matter what position the body assumes or how heavy a weight you lift. They give instant relief and contract the opening in a remarkably sh~rt time. The secret of their success is in their simplicity. An expertly adjusted device seals the opening without dis- comfort or detention from work. It is practically everlast;ng, sanitary, comfortable and actually n:,lds rup- tures which heretofore were consid- ered uncontrollable. Stomach troubles, backache and constipation, nearly alway~ a conse- quence of rupture, promptly disap- pear.
