Boyle Garrard and Mercer were present as well as Lincoln and many from other sections of the State and other State The old confederate comrades of the deceased turned out in a body and acted a escort

that her son was unruly and she feared he was associating with company that in the end would bring disgrace to him and her The judge told the son to step near him and in a pleasant ton of voice said pointing to the parent Boy there is the only true friend you have obey her Let me impress this on your mind think of it Whatever shadow you cast in life will follow you along as you live and always keep up to you That is your reputation It is always in sight and just your size exactly and how proud and happy it will make your fond mother if you will sto going with bad youths and Stan in such a

paper recently it has been suggested that Luther Burbank the wizard of plant life since he has proved that he can do almost anything with plants and flowers might devote his energies to producing a bachelors button that can be sewed on so that it wont come off and a sage brush fo go with the coxcomb But there are al so some people who are urging Burbank to give them a canta lope without a hole in the mid dIe raspberries and blackberries without seeds and odorless onions v Those who have become disaffected with the newfangled breakfast cerals want him to de visa a mushroom that will yield a superior grade of mush and they hope by crossing lemons and watermelons a plant may be evolved that will contain lemon ade just as some varieties of cactus are reservoirs of water They fully expect that by grafting apples on on pine trees he can produce pineapples and they look to him with confidence to get prunes by properly pruning the hedges But while every body wishes Burbank would give them the best kind of thyme some people wish it longer and Eveen some of the disaffected ones go so far as to claim that Burbank is a firstclass grafter The influence of the moon has been much discussed by farmers and it is still an unsettled matter among them A learned pro fessor says The influence of the moon upon the germination of seeds and growth of plants has by some been believed for r powedof the ocean at certain phases as to produce the tides might it n be potent in other respects An as it is clearly established that the direct rays of the sun have such a powerful effect on vegetation as that some plants cease to grow and die without them not the reflected light of the moon have a similar though modified effect Let us con ider some of the good that comes from turning over the soil in the fallor winter In doing this you bring up and place on the surface soluble matters that have leached down too low for the feeders to reachand you cover in the soil the weeds grass and stubble of

read by Mrs Mary I ewis at 5th Sunday school con vention held at Pleasant Ridge church in Green County Ky July 31 1910 One of the modern Sunday School methods for the ingather ing into our Sunday schools is the Home Department This work if rightly conducted involves very little cost and material and often doubles both membership and spiritual powers of the school It consists in the exten tion of pledge lesson study to shut ins and shut outs To make it a success there are only five requisites to be met First a corps of visitors zealous for the cause second Home study helps third a record book fourth pledge cards fifth collection en velopes In nearly every household there is one or more persons who rarely if ever leave home and if we can by securing a pledge from them to study the home helps a half hour per week get them interested in the Sunday school work I believe we have that much in favor of the home SunIone becomes interested in Gods work they will want instruction and will begin to discuss and ques tion about the subjects they study and will thus bring the lessons for the Sabbath befor the family and in many in stances get them interested in the lessons where they not have been if this shut in had not taken the Home Department pledge Again all of those who remain away from Sunday school may become so interested in the lessons that they may finally put forth an effort and become a member of the Sunday school proper If this member is th mother of the family will she not requirde ren than if she had not taken that pledge Then if there ar fifty families represented in ou Sunday school and we by organizing a home department enli stafifty more persons in the study of the Bible especially with the literature explaining the passages is that not worth the energy and expense of doing so Then there are in all communities a few families under the head of shutouts As they hay by circumstances probably by theIprivileges of the Sunday school ought not we carry the Gospel theirr doprsjThe great commission did not stop at Jerusalem nor yet Ju dea nor Samaria but it ex ende thte toearth Going back to the shutinswho are they Are they not often the householdpwe not en and behalfgof our Again let us consider this question from a financial stand point Suppose at the end of the quarter we gather up the collection envelopes from these fifty or more members of the Home Department here we have fifty different collections for the thirteen Sundays Say it is only woulhd per quarter Again fir each of the fifty gaye 5 cents per Sunday tictoUf ir J 1 IIIqnr f treasury would be increased by 3250 per quarter and four quarters per year Is this not worth trying IThe extra Bible study secured the extra amount of prayers for our schools success The increase of membership and the increase in the treasury all result from one rightly conducted home department Let every Sunday school here representedorder the Home de partment literature select ad corps of visitors and organize a Home department remembering that it is worth much more than it can cost The work assigned to us Sun day school teachers is not like the vain and fruitless task once

every clime and every rrnk of life but it is a lesson of neverending presence which the heart can feel and acknowl edge and needs not example tot teach how to venerate Can there be a being so vile and odious so dead to natures impulse who in return for con stant care such unvarying kind ness can willingly or heedlessly wound the heart that cherished him and forsake the now lonely one who nursed and sheltered him who can madly sever the sweet bonds of human union and bring down the gray hairs of his parents with graveIwho can leave them in their old age to solitude and poverty while he wantons in the pride of undeserved prosperity If there be why let him adjure the man and herd with the beasts that perish or let him feel to distraction that worst of human miseries How sharper than the ser pents tooth it is to have a thank less child fl Shoulders of The Young Horse During the first few weeks of the spring work the care of the young horses shoulders is of great importance Especially is this true in the case of the young horse whose shoulders have not yet become hardened by the collar and whose flesh is in a very tender condition A horse is not a machine and he can not be expected to do a certain amount of work unless the proper care is taken He should be looked upon as a creature with feeling and ambition taking pride in its work that is willing obedient and therefore valuable as ser vant and should be properly cared for In discussing this subject the Bulletin of the Colorado Agriciil tural College says The first thing of importance to consider in the draught horse is the co IItct It is a good idea to have a has ness maker fit the collars to yoursi r horses l Heavy collar pads are to be avoided if possible They are hot and cause the shoulder to sweat this keeps the pad

as it does not keep so well as drypicked poul try and does not look so fresh and plump after it has lain on the counter a few hours By the modern methods fowls can be drypickedas quickly aa if scald ed and besides the feathers can be saved for the market if one is situated where there is a de mand for such goods which are now used for many purposes Fowls to be properly dressed should be killed by being struck in the mouth with a sharp point ed knife and the picking should be done while the fowl is dying when the feathers are warm and will come off easily A rapid picker will take off all the large feathers bythe time a fowl is dead and then an assistant will finish the job by picking off the pin feathers Care must be used not to break the skin as if it is the fowl is unsightly and will always com mand a lower price The feet and head should always be left on as one can tell from these when a fowl is young and tender Always pack them carefully in the box as much depend on toe looks A

have no fairs but have to depend on c- irIcuses and nigger hangings for festival occasions and as felons are to be hereafter electrocuted privately we shall miss the spec tacle of seeing a nigger strug v gling in the halter Seriously I cant see why any body could enjoy such a revolt 7 ing spectacle as a human execu a tion but it is a scene which many i form rly witnessed witnessed with enjoyment Seven years since a woman of rather ignorant condition was at our home and was asked if she were going to circus at Shelby She said that she and her hus band had talked over matters and argued that as it would cost sev eral dollars to take all the family into the circus they had decided to see a nigger hanging which would be free and just as enter taining A nigger had killed the chief of police at Shelby for which he was to be hung just a u few weeks after the circus t This was tome a matter of disgust for depraved taste but all such relish is not confined to North Carolina The press reports of the Reno prize fight between a white preachers son and a free nigger was witnessed by several thou sand spectators and among them several hundred women The gladiatorial contests o f Rome were witnessed by patrician la dies and their descendants take rare pleasure in witnessing a Spanish bull fight I presume your readers would relish something as to climate soil crops and conditions of this region This is strickly a tern perate region geographically my home being near 35th degree of north latitude The summers are some longer than in Kentucky and the win ters shorter and milder The rocks here are of igneous forma tion and granite Also here is found a great deal of monazite a yellow sand used in making in condescent lights A good deal of gold is mined in this State also emeralds hid dinite etc and in all 67 varieties minerals Y I Of timber about 66 species are found among them large and j and sjiort leaf pines hickories poplars iron bush several va rieties of

Teachers are paid from 20 to 40 for four months service in small schools here but local taxation is doing much to lengthen term and pay better salariesWhile public highways are generally execrable
