He declared the United States had done more in four montlis than Germany did in a year. America's Immediately after the declaration of war with England in 1812,. Elbert Anderson, of New York, then a contractor, visited Troy, where he purchased a large, quantity of provisions. The inspectors of the articles at that place were Ebenezer and Samuel Wilson. The latter (universally known as "Uncle Sam") generally superintended in person a large number of workman, who on this occasion were employed in overhauling the provisions purchased by the contractor. The casks were marked "E. A. U.S." Their inspection fell to the lot of a facetious fellow who, on being asked the meaning of the mark, said he did not know, unless it meant "Elbert Anderson and Uncle sam," alluding to "Uncle Sam" Wilson.

This is not right. It is lime for us to change our habits and begin to repay some of the vast amount thi.t has been so freely bestowed upon us. I think, too, that I have found a good place to begin. It is with the railroads. Jiiven tne metropolitan news papers are beginning to realize that the "food shortage" of the cities is not due to any actual scarcity of stuff to eat. but to the inefficiency of the systems of transportation and distribution. There is plenty of food if it could be distributed where needed. It is not distributed because of a scarcity of freight cars. There is a scarcity of freight cars simply because the traffic managers of the railroads have not yet learned how to keep freight cars moving. The average freight car is said to spend more time standing on the siding than moving from place to place. It has been made a warehouse rather than a vehicle of transportation. In the course of a year its actual traveling speed per hour is just about that ot a fast walking horse.

Surgical assistance did not reach the battlefield until the day after the engagement or even later, and for many of the wounded it was then too late. In 1792 Baron Dominique Jean Larrey, of the French army, introduced his system of "ambulance volantes, " or flying field hospitals, capable of moving rapidly from place to place. They gave primary surgical treatment and removed the wounded quickly from the field. Napoleon warmly supported Larrey, and the system was quickly brought to a high state of efficiency in the Grand Army. The actual founder of the Red Cross society was Jean Henri a philanthropic citizen of Geneva, Switzerland. On June 14, 1859, he chanced to be preB ent at the battle of Solferino and wes an eye witness to the vast amount of unnecessary suffering that resulted from the inability of the regular surgical corps for the thousands of wounded who lay upon the field. Three years later he published a book on his experiences at Solferino and advocated an international cohven tion to provide for the aiding of the wounded in war. This convention, which took place at Geneva in 1863, neutralized the surgical corps of hostile armies and volunteer socities caring for the wounded As a compliment to Switzerland the Swiss flag in reversed colors, i. e.. a red cross on. a white field, was to be adopted universally and worn on arm bands by all members of the neutral staffs. Geneva has been since that time the headquarters of the International Red Cross society. Fro m ' "Switzerland, wounded Du-nan- t, The railroad men have been clamoring for higher freight rates so that they could get more money to buy more freight cars, but they are letting the cars they have loaf half their time. If the farmer was as much a slacker as the freight car, there would, be sure enough trouble. It is time for us farmers to do something. We should at once send "experts" to tell the traffiic men of the railroads how to get more service out of their freight cars, how to speed up their distribution of food products. If would be but a fit return for all they have done for us. So I herewith offer my services at any reasonable salary, to any organization of farmers that feel disposed to pay the good advice the railroads have been so freely offering farmers for the past few years. I do not claim to know exactly what these traffic managers should do to help things; but" that need be no drawback. I know that something ought to be done, and that is about the extern of the knowledge possessed by some of the "experts" they have turned loose on us. E. 'E. Miller, in Southerriagricult-uris- t.

Southern Agriculturist. ADAIR COUNTY, NEWS United States of America aspires to be and the nation the German Empire aspires to be. This nation is, as Lincoln said, a republic dedicated to the proposition that all men are free and equal. Despite all its failures and shortcomings it aspires to develop along these lines to become a more democratic nation as it becomes a greater nation; to lead other nations by the force of its example, to become free and strong and With all its record of wars and conflicts, its ideal is peace. The one thing it values more than peace is justice. The German Empire is the last great stronghold oE the doctrine of "divine rights," of the belief that some men are appointed by God to rule over the rest of mankind. It aspires, even as Ceasar and Genghis Khan and Napoleon aspired, to world domination. It is ba3ed on ' a belief in force. For two generations it has subordinated everything to military efficiency. The right of the, German Empire to dictate to other nations is an accepted part of its creed The use of any measure of force or brutality that will enable it to do so is openly proclaimed as a national policy, Two such nations could not cuntinue to exist and to grow in a world no larger than ours. A clash was inevitable. The world cannot remain halfx democratic and half autocratic. - This, in few words is why we Agricultuare at self-sustainin- g. corn stalks to best advantage the corn has to be cut and shocked and let stand until cured when the ears are removed and the remainder is shredded and put in the barn, is stacked or fed to the stock from the shocks. As this is a new practice for most of us it will have to be begun on a small scale until the art is learned. Corn that is cut early while the weather is hot must be pretty ripe. In the hot climate of the South probably not more than a third to a fourth of the blades should still be green. It is an advantage to start the shock and cut on one fside until the whole field has been gone over in this way. .Then the corn on the other side of the shock is cut and it is finished. This allows the blades to dry out inside the shock. Just before frost the corn can be cut somewhat greener as the weather is cooler. It is the warm moist weather that frequently occurs in September and early October that spoils the corn, so badly. Southern Agriculturist. Diiinfect. Save the Roads.

Last fall plans were made for a large amount of new road con-- " struction and the reconstruction of many which were pretty well worn out or in need of more durable surfacing. The cost of maintaining the latter roads was so great that it was economical to reconstruct them and thus cut down the annual cost of keeping them in good condition. The summer is half gone and a considerable part ot these improvements has not been undertaken because of labor and material conditions. It is impracticable to carry out the 1917 road program in these localities. That is no reason, however, for allowing the old roads to become impassable. It i3 good reason on the other hand, for straining every Resource to maintain them in as serviceable condition as possible. When conditions become readjusted, as they surely will be soon, the really important roads of the country will have the attention due them, and the cost of reconstruction will be reduced if the old roads have not been allowed to go to pieces. It is not the kind of work which is attractive to the road builder, whose joy lies in building something new, in creative endeavor. But it is the kind of work that is needed. The road builder must be content to work with what he ha3 to keep the old roads in service even though his neighbors criticise him for not accomplishing the impossible task of maintaining them in aa good condition as new roads just as they are criticising everybody these days who is doing his bit for the public.

History surely repeats itself in so far as inefficient highway administration is concerned. Professor R. L. .Morrison has recently pointed out. Many states are struggling today with the same problems which engaged the attention of the British Parliament one hundred years ago and were met and solved by the French nearly one hundred fifty years ago. It is very nearly two hundred year s since the organization of the famous Corps Des Ponts and Chausses, the body of engineers in charge of the roads and bridges of France, and about t, 1776, the French engineer, the real orignator of the broken stone road, first proposed a system of continuous maintenance. He fought with energy the old method of intermittent repairs, ana the American Highway Engineers are fighting the same battle today. In 1775 Tresaguet became Inspector General of the Corps, and the same year the i"Corvee," which corresponds to our system of working out road taxes, was abolished. At the present tune, 142 years after France put road on an efficient basis, . the old inefficient "Corvee" is iStil) used in many places in the lUnited States. So little have "we. profited by the experience.of ' Tres-ague--- the best plant to use for the reclamation of the lands worst eroded, and the best thing to plant on many steep slopes which are bound to wash away if continued in cultivation, but other plants are available. On thousands of acres Bermuda grass will be the best thing to plant. Thousands of smaller gullies can certainly be stopped, tens of thousands of acres too steep or toq susceptible to washing for profitable cultivation can certainly be saved, by the planting of Bermuda. The Kudzu vine Jalso promises to be valuable for this purpose, and the planting of honeysuckles on many steep banks is well worth while. The farmers who have these eroding lands should wake up to the folly of permitting such destruction to continue and to the profits to be had from stopping it. They should set themselves to stop every gully they have, and, equally oimportant, to important, to prevent the starting of any new ones. This means for the farmers of this part of West Tennessee that they must discontinue their present unwise and utterly indefensible policy of running the rows of their cultivated crops up and down hill, Just such foolish methods as these are responsible for many of the waste acres now in their fields, and as long as .they continue to plow up and down the slopes instead of. around them they will continue to start new gullies faster than they can stop old ones.

I live in the ridee country, s where the grass is not especially so in the late fall and early spring. To carry my sheep through the year successfully it is necessary to sow a pasture crop. For this purpose I use rye and crimson clover, sowing five pecks of rye and ten or twelve pounds of crimson clover per acre. I prepare the land in July or August when I can, and sow the seed from August 10 to September 15; I will sow as late as the 20th or 25th if it is not possible to sow earlier. In this latter case I reduce the clover to about eight or ten pounds per acre and increase the rye to six pecks. I like to have good land for this mixture, and if I try tc manure this as fast as. I have any to put on it. As soon as I sow the seed I clean out all, stables and spread this manure over the thin land as far as it will go. I keep this up as I have manure to put out, and the land can be run over until time to plow the crop under in late April or May. The part I get manured early is practically sure to stand the win- ter, even if it is sown late. If I get the clover sown early it is ready to pasture by the latter part of October and is always ready to pasture fairly early in However, I can November. keep ray sheep on my meadows through September and October while the rams are with them and do not need the pasture badly until after Christmas, ordinarily. However, I frequently turn on the rye and clover in November and December for awhile. In January, February, March and April the pasture is fine and will carry the sheep and will carry the sheep and lambs through these months with the exception pf sortie of the worst spells of our bad winters. I account for much of my success with this pasture in that I either put it on my best land or manure as near all of it as I can. E. M.

The teachers of Adair county were given a great treat last Tuesday eveningThe pleasure of hearing Dr. W. A. Ganfield, President of Center College, Dauville. The speaker's subject was "Efficiency in Education" and he handled it masterly. He not only dwelt on efficiency in education, but in every other laudable undertaking. The production "was evidently worth much to the teachers and to all who were in the audience. The perfect language of the speaker and the impressive manner in which he addresses a congregation, has given, him a nation wide reputation as an educator and of character building. His visit to Columbia will linger in the minds of those who heard him for many weeks. Before Dr. Ganfield took the stand there were several songs rendered and ,a reading by Miss Frances Strange, who recently passed the High School examination Her selection was "The Lost Chord" and it was delivered most tf beautifully, and some parts of it very pathetically. It was rendered with outembarrassment and the articulation was distinct, making it very appreciative. Married at Jamestown.
