Decoration Day wis appropriately observed in this place last Thursday afternoon. The hour of meeting was 4 o'clock, and by that time the cemetery was full of residents of Columbia, nearly all bringing flowers. The exercises were opened by singing "America," which was followed by an address which was well worded and well delivered, by Mr. J. R. Garnett. The flag over the graves of two soldiers was then raised, followed by a song, "The Star Spangled Banner." Mr. L. C. Winf rer then delivered an address on the proper care of the cemetery. It was timely and well received. This was followed by a beautiful memorial address by Rev. S. G. Shelley. Eld. Z. T. Williams was the master of ceremonies, and at the conclusion he dismissed the congregation with prayer. Before the exercises commenced the graves of departed loved ones were strewn with beaufiful flowers, and when the audipnce left for their respective homes, an odor like that that- permenates a grove of roses, pervaded the entire cemetery. At this time the City of the Dead Ms in a cleanly condition, due to the energy and management of the good ladies of the community. - Bishop George C. Clements, of the African M. E. Church, preached to a mixed congregation at the courthouse last Sunday afternoon. It was a clean, thoughtful discourse, deliver ed forcefully, showing that the speaker was a man of education and also full of the spirit. Many of the whites in the congregation shook his hand at the conclusion of the services, bidding him God speed in his great work. It is an inspiration to hear such an able man, it matters not the color of his skin. He is evidently doing much to elevate his race and his people are justly proud of him. He was born, reared and educated in Alabama, but at present is located in Louisvile. His work carries him to six or seven States. The music rendered upon this occasion was by the Church choir and it was very inspiring. To Stone and Cement Contractors.

It matters not how much longer the war continues, if he keeps his health he will be in the service until hostilities cease. It has now been on nearly four years, and signs of peace are not in sight.

The plans for the drive were outlined at a meeting of county chairmen with members of the National Committee at Lexington on Friday of last week, and the hundred county chairmen in attendance upon the meeting were shown how easily the plans can be carried into effect in the State of Kentucky. The general outline has been fitted to the campaign in Kentucky, and printed forms are being rushed through in order to get them in the hands of county, chairmen as speedily as possible. The whole tiling depends upon organization in the several counties of the State, and the counties represented at the Lexington meeting and those whose chairmen were unavoidably absent on that occasion were pledged to the National Committee to make whatever organization is essential to the success of the Nebraska plan. Rather than to devote every week of the remaining months of the year 1918 to the work of the War Savings campaign, it was determined to make one big drive, June 24 to June 28 next, closing on National "War Savings Day, during which time the rest of Kentucky's quota, that not already secured, will be pledged by its citizens, to be purchased during the six months following. This drive will not be for sales of stamps, but for pledges. When it is over, and Kentucky's quota has been pledged by her loyal citizens, the rest of the year will be mere "follow up" to see that the War Stamps are purchased as the months pass, to the end that when December 31 comes we can wire Chairman Vanderlip, of the National Committee, and our own Federal Director J. D. Lyon, that Kentucky has met her obligation as she always has done in the past, and this best Government security. The War Savings activity in Kentucky stood aside recently and helped "put over" the Third Liberty Loan campaign. Its organization has done its part in the other war activities of the year, and our county chairmen can now call upon those loyal men and women for assistance in our big June drive. Already scores of persons who have been engaged in the other activities have tendered their services to county chairmen for this drive, and in every instance their tender of service has been accepted. We should add every volunteer to the ranks of campaigners for the June drive. ,The plan of winding up the big campaign with a public meeting in every schoolhouse in Kentucky in the afternoon 28, which is to be proclaimed National War Savings Day by President Wilson, by Governor Stanley and by the Mayor of every city, town and hamlet in the State, and at a 'time when all of the other States of the Union are holding such meetings, is-- splendid one. The entire country will take an hour off on this day to pledge itself to Thrift and War Savings. Men and women of the entire country are to attend, but are to be told that they are expected to be there to participate in the meeting of their community. The meetings are not to be adjourned until each community in each State of the Nation has pledged its quota, which will be announced in advance of the meeting. In order to start off each meeting in the State of Kentucky with the proper enthusiasm the four days preceding the holding of the meeting will be devoted by the organization in each school district to securing in advance of the meeting the pledges of as many of the people of each community as can be seen in that limited time. A record of those pledging in advance of the meeting will be read at the meeting to show that they have already signed up to save and serve their country. A record also will be kept of those of each community who do not answer present when the community roll is called. Our Uncle Sam wants to know if there are any in the community who are not in sympathy with him as well as he wants to know the names of those who answer the call of the President on that great June day. over-purchase- fnti.t..t..fr.M- - 'l',l'i.I,Xil HOW CORN IS UTILIZED WHEN LITTLE ONE SINGS EI"T"T" ITT ITWhen evening comes over the gray shad- Numerous Products Are Manufactured From the Raw Material In food production per acre, corn'excels all other staple crops. In pounds of protein produced per acre .t is exceeded orfly by soy beans and beans, says the United States department of agriculture. The great stock feeding and dairy industries of 'he country are based largely upon the corn crop, as are also important manufacturing industries, such as starch, glucose, corn oil, and related products, varloua food products, and alcoholic beverages. Corn is the great feed crop of the nation. Fed with legumes and grasses it is unequali as an economical ravfr material for the production of meat, anc" butter. Because its high starch and oil content makes it primarily a feed, corn is of almost inestimable value in finishing stock for mar. et. The remarkable development of the pork industry in this country has b en due to the high feed value and abundant yields of the corn crop. Of all types 0f stock feeding, the pork industry is associated most closely with ihe corn crop. Of the d5 per cent of the crop consumed on the farm, all except a small, percentage milled for human food is used for stock feeding. The extent of the dependence of the feeding industry upon the corn yields is indicated by k the fairly consistent relationship maintained between corn and prices. By far the greater part of the corn used in feeding is fed as ear corn, with the dry stalks and blades used as roughage, either as pasturage in the field or as cut stover. To a less extent the grain is fed in the form of1 shelled corn, milled products, and various manufactured feedstuffs. Another form in which corn is largely fed is silage. Silage, at present, is of more g industry, but its importance to the dairy industry than to the use in fattening steers is increasing rapidly. Its most extensive use is found in the sections where dairying is a leading type of farming. While the silo has become a more or less familiar sight to almost every section where corn is grown, it is used most extensively in Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, New York, and New England. It is used also largely in other states of the corn belt and in the central Eastern states. Among the common cornmeal dishes eaten in the South are a mixture of cornmeal and water with or without salt, cooked in a frying pan or griddle; corn bread or pone, made with the addition of baking powder or its equivalent and baked in the oven; griddle cakes, prepared from a thin batter with the addition of a leavening agent; egg or spoon bread, differing from ordinary corn bread in that eggs are used ; and corn dumplings, usually cooked with either meat or vegetables. Cornmeal is used in puddings, waffles, poultry dressing, meat, and fish dishes. In the North where corn products are consumed to a less extent, the preference Is usually given to meal made from yellow corn, although the hominy (grits) made from white corn is a common breakfast cereal. e Hasty puddin (corn mush) and Johnny cake (corresponding to the of the South) have been made in New England households since colonial days. Indian pudding, a popular dessert prepared from cornmeal, milk, and eggs, has long beer, regarded as. one of the necessary adjuncts to the New England Thanksgivin dinner. Other form in which corn is consumed are grits, consisting of the hard ' portions of the kernels but not milled so finely as meal, eaten as a breakfast cereal or as a side dish with meats ; hominy, the same as grits but milled more coarsely; and lye hominy, or hulled corn, prepared from the whole giain after removal of the hull with caustic soda. The latter products are usually eaten as dinner dishes and serve largely to replace vegetables. Aside from its direct uses for stock food and for human food, corn is the raw material from which numerous products are manufactured. These products include articles both suitable and not suitable for food purposes. fat-jroduc- in ows fall, Softly my Little- One sings; Cuddles and C003 to a little rag doll.

The following statement regarding the poultry needs is taken from the official agricultural program for 1918 Issued recently by the United States department of agriculture: "Poultry production should be increased greatly, especially in back yards and on farms, where waste material is available and the purchase of expensive grains and other material is not required. "Increased poultry production may be attained most economically by early hatching; by confining mother hens at least ten days after the chicks are hatched; by reducing losses on, account of rats, weasels and thievesand from cold, damp conditions; by thorough sanitation; by discouraging the d marketing of pullets as broilers ; by eliminating hens and kepping good layers through at least two laying seasons; and by the poultryman raising his own feed as far as possible."

Some' farmers, it is said, refuse to plant crops or to kill hogs unless the moon is in some particular position. The influence of the moon on the growth of crops, or on other agricultural operations, has always been denied by scientific men. The following brief statement by C. F. Marvin, chief of the United States weather bureau, printed in the Rural New Yorker, shows what they think of the matter: "It Is the general belief of scientists that the moon has no appreciable influence on temperature, rainfall, or any other weather, element, or on plant growth. "Plant growth depends upon temperature, light, humidity and plant food (both in the soil and in the air), and its availability. Obviously the moon neither mellows the ground nor fertilizes it, neither does it alter the composition of the atmosphere; hence it affects neither the mechanical condition of the soil nor the kind or quantity of available plant food. "If the moon has any influence on plant growth, it would seem that it must exert this influence through its light. Experiment, however", shows that when a plant is so shadowed that of norit gets only one mal daylight, it grows but little better than it does in absolute darkness. Full daylight is about GOO.OOO times brighter than full moonlight; hence one of daylight, already too feeble to stimulate appreciably plant activity, is still 6,000 times brighter than full moonlight. The conclusion is that, even in respect tc light stimulus, the moon's Influence on plant growth is wholly negligible.'' th th Dash for Paris m Foes Halt On R iver Mam W Smashing Counter Attacks By the Frei.cla p, Stem German Tide and Hundreds of Prisoners Are Taken While Enemy Los es Much Ground and Fails to Gain Further In Any Direction.

By 1899 cotton had taken precedence of the wheat crop, although the exceptional situation during the first two years of the present war gave wheat the higher place. Gradually the cotton crop, lint and seed, climbed over the great hay crop, and thus has cotton become in recent years second only to corn. The corn crop of the United States is by far the most valuable agricultural product. When the colonists at Jamestown and Plymouth were saved from starvation by the corn provided by the Indians, this was a common L dian crop east of the Great Plains, and its annual production at that time has been estimated to have been possibly 2,000,000 bushels. Corn at once became the mainstay of the agriculture of the whites, and the value of this crop, at farm prices, according to the estimate of the United States department of agriculture, reached the extraordinary total of -- SSF 515DGE H.

Don't overstock your land. Purchase pullets rather than hens. Don't expect great success In hatching and raising chicks unless you have had some experience and have a grass plot separate from the yard for the hens. Build a cheap house or shelter. Make the house dry and free from draughts, but allow for ventilation. Fowls stand cold better than dampness. Keep house and yard clean. Provide roosts and dropping boards. Provide a nest for each four or five hens. Grow some green crop in the yard. Spade up the yard frequently. Feed table scraps and kitchen waste. Also feed grain once a day. Feed a dry mash. Keep hens free from lice and the house free from mites. Kill and eat the hens in the fall as they begin to molt and cease to lay.

When $327,000,000 is added for seed, the aggregate value of the cotton crop of 1917, at farm prices, becomes $1,843,000,000. Hay is not the joke that the funny writers would have It. Indispensable to proper crop rotation and to stock keeping, hay often contended with both cotton and wheat for a place next to corn in value, but in the order of crop values in recent years it has a settled third place, below corn and cotton, and usually above wheat before the present war. In 1914 to 1916 It was slightly exceeded in value by wheat, but It resumed its third place with emphasis In 1917, when the value of the crop was $1,307,000,000 for 93,000.000 tons, both quantity and value making the highest record, while the wheat crop value was $1,307,000,000 for 051,000,000 bushels. Oatmeal was only for the sick, many years ago, and was sold by drug tores; now! this food, more especially in the form of rolled oats, has become dietary, and horses and other live stock share the large crop with their owners. In both production and value the oats crop of 1917 exceeds that of every former year, and the 1,3S7,000,000 bushels have a farm value of $1,061,000,000. This is regularly the fifth crop in order of value. The potato crop of 443,000,000 bushels in 1917, the record crop, has a producers' value of $354,000,000.

The tobacco crop of 1917, also, is at the top of the record, the 1,196,000,-00-0 pounds being worth $297,000,000 to the farmers. Below this, in order of value, follow the barley crop with a farm value of $237,000,000 ; apples, kafir corn and mllo maize. $131,000,000; dry edible beans, peanuts, $107,000,000, and xye, SIOO.OOO.OOO. Every other crop has a value less than that of rye.

We are not greatly elated over the prospect of eating fried whale, although the dish has been pronounced excellent by Boston connoisseurs. When corn and oats were suggested as a substitute for wheat all patriotically fell in line, for it was thought that horse feed would be cheaper than man food, which would mean a financial saving as well as conservation for the good of the country. But we reckoned without our restaurateur. Immediately substitute sandwiches began to perform the feat of diminishing in size and increasing in price at the same time. The great abundance of the whale would seem to justify the hope for a large meal at a nominal cost, but there is a fear that the restaurateur will soon learn to slice him up with a safety razor with the same dexterity that he can now make a raisin pie with one raisin.

Close observance of the doctrine, "Keep perishable food, especially, milk, cool, clean and covered continuously," may make a striking difference in the food bills of many families. Fresh vegetables not needed Immediately for other purposes should not be thrown out or allowed to spoil, but should be used in making soups, salads, or combination dishes. Fruits are sometimes allowed to go to waste which might be stewed and kept a day or two until needed. Vegetables and fruits should not be stored in quantities in hot, damp, and poorly ventilated bins. Such conditions hasten wilting, fermentation and decay. Shooting Stars Date Back Into the Prehistoric Times Our knowledge of shooting stars extends Into the oldest history of humanity, back Into prehistoric times. Yet today no one knows exactly what, a shooting star is, or from where It comes, says the Popular Science Monthly. A hypothesis proposed in 1875 and generally accepted today is that meteorites are fragments broken from small planetary masses by volcanic explosions, brought about by a sudden expansion of gases, steam and probably hydrogen. The broken bits, after their separation, are believed to arrange themselves In swarms 'which cross the orbit of the earth in accordance with a definite law. Shooting stars, then, undoubtedly come from within our solar system and ar.e broken bits of a world body destroyed by rolcanlc events. Many meteorltes'have been found in Arizona. Surplus fruits, beans, tomatoes and other vegetables produced in home gardens should not be allowed to spoil on the vines or rot on the ground. A morning's work would can and preserve such surplusage for use when fruits and vegetables are scarce and high in price. Much food, ruined by being stored where flies or other insects, or rats and mice can get at It, can be saved if It is given proper care. Much cereal food is ruined because It Is not kept In cans or other suitable containers and protected against weevils or other Insects. Prevent such losses by careful handling.
