Luethe Co. have an ad in this issue in which they offer to buy poplar wood for shipment to pulp mills.  This is a commendable enterprise and farmers should profit by it.  The poplar is easy to cut and light to market, and here is a chance to get ready cash with which to buy feed for stock.  Everybody shoulder an ax.  See Luethe about it.

Mr. W. E.
