TARTER making that part of our pleasures too prominent, and perhaps some others may think so, but don't you know there is a real hearty hospitality about a good' meal, and an expression of friendship "that is hard to express any other way. In this way we become better acquainted, and a more intimate friendship is cultivated. Then if the preacher has a spiritual turn of mind he can make the social part a scriptural uplift. We had such a sweet service in Mr. Bell's home after dinner. Then it is in harmony with the scriptures. Don't you remember how Abraham killed the fatted calf to entertain the heavenly visitors, and Simon, the leper, made a dinner for Jesus, and how Jesus tells Zacheus he would dine with him that day, and what a blessing-camto Zacheus on that occasion. Then how He, JesUs, was accused of eating with publicans and sinners. I like it very much, not just to eat, but the opportunity that it affords for cultivating real intimate friendship. Mr. D. C.

Luther and Julia are the only ones that live here now and their children are all away from home, and so it seems a little lonesome, but we had an enjoyable trip. The good neighbors invited us to visit them. Mr. John Bell and his good wife live just across the road from Luther's place, and they had us visit them one day. They are splendid old people, and have the finest water in all this country. Mrs. Bell killed one of her fatest hens and had other things in proportion, and it was an enjoyable feast. Mr. L. P.

Just 557 of them loafing and 64 contributing to their idleness, by selling them the liquor that increased their desire for a wanton waste of time and energy. The Herald made this canvass of the saloons. Men visited the 105 bars in Lexington and in each counted the number of men drinking, fine number merely hanging aimlessly around viewing the passage of the afternoon and thenumber of men behind idlers support the bars that-thwith the money they derive from mysterious sources.

Most of r housewives depend on the grocer for their supply of dried herbs, but these are of more or less variable strength, and at times, of no strength at all; for this, if not for economy's sake, the garden should grow at least a family supply. The seeds are not expensive, and a paper of the seeds will grow more plants than one housewife will want; plants, ready to set out, can be had of most kinds, especially the perennial herbaceous kinds, at small cost from the nurseries, and this is often the most economical plan, as well as the surest. Direction for planting seeds are on each label, and any grower of plants will tell you how to set outrnd care for the young plants. As to har vesting and preparing the herbsj for drying, write to the Department of Agriculture, or 'even your own State Board of Agriculture, or experiment station. Most of these herb are biennial or perennial, but the annuals gro thriftily without undue de mands on your time and strength Now is the time to attend to this, and your seed catalogues wi'l tell you wjiat you should have. The salad plants will thrive in almost any soil that will grow plants. The seeds of salad chervil should be sown in the spring; by itself, it is an excellent alad, but mixed with a water-cres- s or corn salad, the flavor is much improved. The turniprooted chervil should be sown in the fall, but the plants do not appear until Rpring, maturing in earlysummer,'and can remain in the ground all winter; the roots are like carrots, though of different flavor, and they are used for flavoring soups. Corn salad is usually sown in the fall, covered lightly through the winter, and used in the spring. Dandelion plants are now among the cultivated salad plants, and cultivation much improves the of the leaves. They are best when mixed with other salad plants. -- TUTT & REED EVglAJL, ESTATE DEAIjKRS Offer the following Property for Sale: FARM LAND acres of good lime stone land well watered, good dwelling and out buildings on public road, and in agood neighborhood.

There never has been a time that the raising of the weed was profitable. Any section where too much stress is turned in this direction, will show run down farms -- and neglected families. Any produce raised on the farm commands satisfactory prices, and the same amount of spent effort is productive of better conditions all around. Mr.C. B.

Quite a number of farmers have planted corn, and if the weather is favorable the coming week, the bulk of the crop jyill be seeded. The ground for a bumper crop has been broken. The prospects for wheat are not good. At best not over 60 percent, of the usual yield is expected. The oat'erop is almost negligible. Grasses are late. Not so many seed sold as formerly. An unusually flattering outlook for a variety of small fruits. Every one has placed special stress on garden pi la. A proper application of energy and foresight might save a great deal of distress Jn the future. The opportune time for' preparation is at hand, and every idle laborer should be made to do his part in producing something to stem the world over our present plight which faces us. x.

Our farmers are making the effort of theirlives to get out a large crop Of everythings that grows out. of the earth in the way of food stuff. Up to this time there has been quite a lot of corn planted, and we are glad to say that there is not an idler In the camp, and everything is moving off nicely In the way of making a'crop. Our wheat and our small crop of oats is looking a great deal better since the recent rains. We are sorry to say that there is a failure with some of our farmers in their tobacco plants, while others have a. bountiful supply bf plants on their Jbeds. On the whole we take it there will be enough in this community, to transplant what is intended to be put out. that' Adair county can easily win first place, I take this method of appealing to you to make the effort. I know that there is not a county in the State that can grow better corn, wheat, oats, hay, tobacco,. etc., than can Adair county. So will you not make an effort to put the county at the head of all other counties agriculturally, as well as alphabetically? A few years ago when the moonlight school was inaugurated in this State, Adair county won first place, so will you farmers not try to be as patriotic as were our excellent teachers. Hold a county meeting at Columbia on some Saturday, or better on the opening day of circuit court, effect an organization, and let every section of the county contribute its share winning first place for the countyj. One section of the county may contribute the corn, another the wheat, another the hay, another the fruit, vegetables, etc. I am readyvto cooperate with you in any way that I can, and shall be pleased to meet with you this summer sometime, to discuss the best methods of assembling and exhibiting the display. I am sure that Mr. Harris will cooperate, and will give space in The News for articles upon the subject that may be contributed by everyone interested. It always pays to advertise anything and I am sure that it would pay big dividends to enter this contest. For nothing would be a better advertisement than for it to win the first place with an agricultural evhibltat the State Fair. So please get together and make an effort to win, Yours for the betterment of the best of all counties- E. L. Campbell.
