ents as Mayor of Now York and brought about the endorsement by them of the entire Republican ticket except for the office of Mayor This f makes a very peculiar situation e There are three nominees for mayor Gaynor Tammany Bannard Repub e lican and Hearst but only two tick ets for the other offices Tammany consented to nominate Gaynor who + Is a good man for Mayor with the idea that It would bo better to put I up with a good Mayor than loose the whole ticket Hearst will draw many votes from the whole Tammany ticket to the Republican list and probably elect it but as the Republican andr Independent vote will be divided bop tween himself and Bannard Gaynor awill probably bo elected Mayorwith tea Y a Republican ticket This will be fortunate for tho City for tho not a Republican Gaynor is honest and Bannard has never had a chance of an election anyway There is some t talk of his withdrawing in favor off Hearst in which case Hearst will at most surely bo elected k MORSE MUST SERVEThe

Money forthe CUltomer and Makes It for Both the Advertiser and the Editor Why It to Patronize tho Man that Advehlses A Few Facts no Merchant Can Get Around Do you always got your full moneys worth when you buy goods This is an article that every man woman or child that 13 Interested in that question will want to read ltd is an article for tho buyers of adver tised goodj It explains why tho ad vertiser will give a man more for his hard earned money than the man I who does not advertise it proves that for tho man who wants to make tho most out ot hla money it is pretty expensive to trade with the fellow I who does not advertise I Tho oUltbr WItS in a store not a thousand miles from here the other day and heard the merchant bragging up his low prices We cans givo you bettor values ttan ho said because we dont advertise Advertising coots mercy of course and wo save just that much You get tho benefit of what wo Ion t pay the newspaper luau you soe Tho argument sounded all right and tho customer bought Wo went to another atom that does advertise and found that It was soiling the same goods at a lower price than tho anti advertiser And that sot us to think ingMaybe you havo heard tho same ar guments used before We have and wo believe you will bo interested in the results ot our thinking for it ndvretlaesIca sell tho same goods cheaper than the man that doesnt The figures I am going to glvo you have been looked over by a first class businessman and ho says that it anything they do not make out a strong enough COM for the advertiser There ought to bo a bigger difference in prices than they show However I jhavij taken then as being surely on tho safe side Remember no merchant who is trying to prove that ad vertising does not pay the buyer can possibly provo any of these figures wrong If a merchant tries to tell you differently from what those fig ures show it is because he doesnt know or dont want to know Every one known that a merchant hIsletbckf ot 1000 for instance ho will sell HOOO or 5000 worth in a year Ills goodsjhe can increase tho amount he sells without Increasing his stock ho in creases his profits just that much Now let us suppose that Mn Waye B Hind has a stock worth 42 000 and that in a year ho sells 7 600 worth of goods at 10 per cent profit netting him 760 If ho pays for them promptly he gets 2 per cent off the east and ho pays as fast 03 ho takes in tho money for the goods ho ache that Is he Is able to discount on about 3000 worth That eaves him another 10 In tho year ho has left on his shelves goods worth 500 that hang over till they are shelf worn or stale or out of style Ho cuts prices on these and soils about 250 at cost Then ho cuts again and sells 200 worth at 25 per cent loss 50 and ho loses en tirely 50 worth hero then is his balance sheet PROFIT 10 per cent on 7i00j 750 2 per cent discount on 2000 s 40 790 LOSS 200 at 25 per cent off 60 50 not soldp GO 1100 Not profit 690 Thin is a nice comfortable profit NowIhad been doing just the same kind of a business that is ho had the samo capital trade credit sotpk good will and everything else and the sarno profit But ho thinks tho home paper is a gobd thing for tho town and ho decides to help it out with 100 worth of advertising even It ho does lose by it Ho decides that customers shall not lose and so he goes on doing business at the same 10 per cent rate of profit Now 100 Is a good deal to pay for advertising We may remark in passing that no merchant has ever paid us that much in any one year No one that patron Continued on fourth rage JlJIIIrgnoronco

wealth of the country increases Hndno riches in other forms can ever mako permanently prosperous a country where the farmer is poor and ground down Wlieu we find therefore that in a part of our country the farms are growing poorer we know that the prosperity of the whole country is in danger And especially we know that poverty and hardship face the people who will bo forced to live on the farms That is the condition in our Kentucky mountains todayThe farms are wearing out The hillside fields are In an hours ride up the rich Sextons Creek country this summer the editor counted twentyuiuo such fields fields where the richness stored in a thousand years of forestation had been taken out by the rains and n few years cultivation without fertilizers and where culti vation has been given up And there are practically no new fields to go to Crops are getting smaller corn higher and living poorer and more costly At the same time the population of the mountains is increasing Many of the young people are leaving home it is true but still there are more mouths to feed from these poor farms each year The timberingand other industries help for a time but cannot last and the poor farms and large families mean that in duo time perhaps soon the standard of living in our mountains will have to go downunless something is done about it The one great comfort in the situtution is that something can be done about it if the farmers will only take the trouble There are considerable quantities of good lapd in the bottoms and on the benches These fields can be cultivated by the most improved methods and if they are so treated the amount that they produce cotile easily be doubledprobably trippled A first class corn field can be made to bear seventyfive bushels to the acre An average mountain farm will usually produce about twentyfiveone third as much And the difference would be not in the richuepH of tho land but in the methods of cultivation Landcan be made rich and methods can produce better results from poor lands but poor methods will not produce good results with the best of land There is more in the man than there is in the land as is shown in the little poem printed on this page And the time has come when we mountain people have got to learn how to get the most out of our land And to do it we have got to put more into the men that are working the land We have got to learn the newfangled methods which are making old land produce big crops and which are making it possible for a single man to get larger crops far the same amount of land We bave got to learn how to make our bottom and bench lands produce more than the old hill sides ever did If we dont learn all this we willsoon find ourselves poorer than ever There is not a doubt in the yorld that all these things can be learned Many men in this country todgy know how to do them there are whole sections where all the farmers are doing them And they work indefinitely so that the fields of Europe which have been farmed for thousands of years are today producing bigger crops than the new lands of the West the richest in the world It is what there is in the man that does it Most of us are too old to go to school to learn the new methods any more but none of us ore too old to learn And to make it possible for all td learn in the best and easiest way The Citizen has arranged with Francis 0 Clark to write for us a series of articles on Intensive Farming which wilt tell these things which we ueed to know There is no doubt of Mr Clarks ability to writa them All farmers who wish to know these new methods and make their farms bear more will want to read these articles for they will be more complete more easily understood and more helpful than any series ever before printed in the mountains The articles will begin this weekdont forget to look for them every week for a while TharsMore in the Man Than Thar is in the Land Bjr Sidney Lanier r I knowed a man which he

mens was rich or poor Thar was more In the max than thar was in land GAME WITH CENTRAL Tho third and worst defeat ot the year was administered to the Berea football team at Danville Saturday when Central beat It 630 Tho game was entirely In Centrals hands from the startnot a single Berea play went off right and the boys wore simply knocked off their feet by Cen trals fine work Bcrca fought gamely to the end but several of the men were sick from the hard trip over and could not play their usual game and others were overawed by the big Danville men Never for a minute at a time did Berea play even the grade of ball she was able to When she did she gained but tho men did not keep it up Even the simplest things were done wrong tackles were miss edono time five men in succession failed to stop a man they all got their hands onwhen there was a fumble Central almost always recover ed tho ball and so forth But with the best ot work Berea could put out she would have been heavily outclassed She was outweigh ed over ten pounds to the man and her men were many of them green against a team mode largely of ve terans Centrals men played with perfect coolness and used their heads at all times Their coach Banks seems to be the brainest in the state this year Central has a fine team and seems likely to take the champ IonshipITho game was perfectly clean and too much cannot be said of the treat ment accorded the men both by the players and the crowd No fault could possibly be found with of ficials or team and if it had not been for the score nothing would have marred Ufo pleasure of the trip The defeat does not mean that Be rea is In a hopeless condition for the fall If the same amount of work had been put in before the State game there would not have been more than two touchdowns The boys were simply carried oft their feet and there is every hope that with enough hard work and training a first class showing can be made In the tour games yet to come A deficit in the finances of the athletic association has been accumulating for some years and has this fall reached the point where the bur den has become almost intolerable to the officers of the association and those who are supporting athletics A movement is on foot to raise suffloent funds to clear oft the heaviest part of the present Incumbrance and an attempt will be made to find some plan which will assure better support in future A pleasant surprise The warm bath that goes with a stop over at the Boone Tavern KENTUCKY GAME LAW The quail shooting season closes January 1 Rabbits can be killed ten

looting the wrecked train Sinclair pleaded In nocence declaring It only amounted to a email euma treat for the men McCloud discharged the whole outfit and ordered the wreckage burned McCloud became acquainted with Dlckale Dunning a girl of the west who came to look at the wreck She gave him a message for Sin clair Whispering Gordon Smith told President Ducks of the railroad of Mo Clouds brave Sight against a gang of crazed miners and that was the reason for the superintendents appointment to his ofllce arranged to board at the boarding house of Mrs Sin clair the exforemans deserted wife Dlcksle Dunning was the daughter of the ate Richard Dunning who had died of a broken heart shortly after his wifes demise which occurred after one year of married life Sinclair visited Marlon Sin

Interfered to prevent a shooting affray Dlcksle met McCloud on a lonely trail to warn him his life was In danger tCHAPTER XIIIContinued Miss Dunning wont you listen just a moment Please dont run away j McCloud was trying to come up with her Wont you hear me a moment I have suffered some little humiliation today I should really rather be shot up than have more put on me I am a man and are a woman and it Is already darki Isnt It for mo to see you safely to the houso Wont you at least pretend I can act as an escort and let me go with you I should matte a poor figure trying to catch you on horseback Dlcksle nodded naively With that horseWith any horseI know that saId McCloud keeping at her side But I cant lot you ride back with mo declared Dlcksle urging Jim and looking directly at McCloud for the ilrst time How could I explain Let me explain I am famous for explaining urged McCloud spurring too And will you tell me what I should be doing while you wero explaining sheaskedPerhaps getting ready a first aid for the Injured- I feel as It I ought to run away declared Dlcksle since sho hod clearly decided not to It will havo to bo a compromise I suppose You must not ride farther than the first gate and let us take this trail Instead of tho road Now make your horse go es last as you can and Ill keep up But McClouds horse though not a wonder went too fast to suit his rider who divided his efforts between check Ing him and keeping up the conversa tion When McCloud dismounted to open Dlcksles gate and stood in the twilight with his hat In his hand and his bridle over his arm ho was telling a story about Marion Sinclair and Dlckslo In the saddle tapping her McCloud LalJHis Head Low and Spurred His Horse knee with her bridlerein was looking down and past him as If tho light upon his face were too bright Before she would start away site made him re mount and ho said goodby only after halt a promise from her that she would show him sometime a trail to the top of Brldgers Peak with a view of the Peace river on the cast and tho whole Mission raugo and the park country on tho north Then she rodo away at an amazing run McCloud galloped toward the pass with one determination that he would have a norse and a good one one that could travel with Jim if it cost him his salary lIe exulted as ho rode for tho day had brought him curytMng ht wished and humiliation had been swallowed up In triumph It was near ly dark when he reached tho crest between the hills At this point the southern grade of tho pass winds sharply whence Its name tho Elbow but from tho head of the pass tho grade may bo commanded at Intervals for half a mile Trotting down this road with his head In a whirl of excitement McCloud hoard the crack of a rifle at tho same Instant he felt a sharp slap at his hat Instinct works on all bravo men very much alike McCloud dropped forward In his sad die and seeking no explanation laid his head low and spurred Bill Dan cings horso for life or death Tho horse Quito amazed bolted and swerved down tho grade like a snipe with his rider crouching closo for a second shot But no second shot came and after another mile McCloud ventured to take off his hat and put his finger through tho holes In it though be did not stop his horso to mako the examination When they reached tho open country tho horse had settled into a fast long stride that not only redeemed his reputation but relieved his riders nerves When McCloud entered his office Iti was half past nino oclock and first thing he did before turning on tho lights was to draY the window shades He examined the hat again with sensations that wero new to him fear resentment and a hearty hatred of his enemies But all the while tho picture of Dickslo remained He thought of her nodding to him as they parted in the saddle and her pic taro blotted out all that had followed CHAPTER XIV At the Wickiup Two nights later Whispering Smith rodo into Medicine Bend Ive been up around Williams Cache he said answering McClouds greeting as he entered tho upstairs office How goes itt Ha was In his riding rig just as he had come from a late supper When ho asked for news McCloud wtthLaUCftadded that ho had referred the matter to Glover He told then of his unpleasant surprise when riding home afterwardYes assented Smith looking with feverish interest at McClouds head I heard about it Thats odd for I havent said a utiher I heard up the country It is great luck that ho missed you Who missed me The man that was after you Tho bullet went through my hat Let me see the hat McCloud produced It It was a heavy hroad brimmed Stetson with a bullet hole cut cleanly through tho front and the back of tho crown Smith mado McCloud put tho hat on and describe his position when the shot was fired McCloud stood up and Whispering Smith eyed him and putquestionsWhat you think of IU asked McCloud when he had done Smith leaned forward on tho table and pushed McCIouds hat toward him as If the incident wero closed There Is no question In my mind and there never has been but that Stetson puts up the best hat worn on tho range McCloud raised his eyebrows Why thank you Your conclusion clears things so After you speak a man has nothing to do but guess But by heaven George exclaimed Smith speaking with unaccustomed fervor Miss Dlcksio Dunning is a hummer isnt she That child will have tho whole range going in another year To think of her standing up and lashing her cousin In that way when ho was browbeating a railroad man I Wbero did you hear about that The whole Crawling Stono country Is talking about It You never told mo you had a misunderstanding with Dlckslo Dunning at Marlons Loosen upi I will loosen up in tho way you do What scared me most Gordon was waiting for tho second shot Why didnt ho fire again Doubtless ho thought ho had you the first time Any man big enough to start after you is not used to shoot Ing twice at 250 yards He probably thought you wero falling out of the saddle and It was dark I can account for everything but your reaching tho pass so lato How did you spend all your time between tho ranch and tho foothillsMcCloud saw there was no escape from telling of his meeting with Dick sle Dunning of her warning and of his ride to the gate with her Every point brought a suppressed exclama Uon from Whispering Smith So she gave you your life ho mused Good for her If you had got Into tho pass on tlmo you could not have got away the cards wero stacked for you Ho overestimated you a little George just a little Good men make mis takes Tho sport of circumstances that we arol Tho sport of circum stances Now tell me how you heard to t r much about It Gordon and whore Through a friend but forget H Do you know who shot at mot YesI I do too I think it was tho fellow that shot so well with tho rifle at tho barbecuewhat was his name Ho was working for Sinclair and perhaps is yet You mean Seagrue tho Montana cowboy No you are wrong Soagrue is a man killer but a square one How do you know I will tell you sometimebut this was not Soagrue One of Dunning men was IU Stormy Gorman 1 No npa very different sort Stormy a windbag The man that is after you Is in town at this minute and ho has como to stay until ho finishes his job The dovlli Thats what makes your eyes so bright Is It Do you know him- I t have seen him You may see him yourself It you want to Id like nothing better When t- TonlghtIn 30 minutes Mc Cloud closed his desk There was a rap at tho door That must be Kennedy said Smith I havent seen him but I sent him word for him to meet me hero Tho door opened and Kennedy entered the room Sit down Farrell said Whisper- Ing Smith easily Vo gates Hows that Wlo gohtesT Dont pretend you cant make out my German He Is trying to let on ho is not a Dutchman observed Whispering Smith to McCloud You wouldnt believe it but I can remember when Farrell wore wooden shoes and lighted his pipe with a candle He sleeps under a feather bed yet Du Sang la In town Farrell Du Sang echoed the tall man with mild interest as he picked up a ruler and throwing his leg on the edge of the table looked cheerful How long haa Du Sang been in town Visiting friends or doing business He Is after your superintendent Ho has been hero since four oclock I reckon and Ive ridden a hard road today to get in in time to talk it over with him Want to go Kennedy slapped his leg with tho ruler I always want to go dont U Farrell if you hadnt been a rail road man you would have mado a great undertaker do you know that Kennedy slapping his leg showed his ivory tooth You have such an Instinct for funerals added Whispering SmithNow Mr Smith Well who aro we waiting fort Im ready said Kennedy taking out his revolver and examining It McCloud put on his now hat and asked If bo should take a gun You are really accompanying me as my guest George explained Whispering Smith reproachfully Wont It bo fun to shove this man right under Du Sangs nose and make him bat his eyes ho added to Kennedy Well put one In your pocket If you like Georgo provided you kayo one that will go off when sufficiently urged McCloud opened the drawer of tho table and took from it a revolver Whispering Smith reached out his hand for the gun examined it and banded It back You dont like It Smith smiled a sickly approbation A fortyfive gun with a thirtyeight bore Georgo A little light for shock- S little light A bullet Is intended to knock a man down not necessarily to kill him but if possible to keep him from killing you Never mind we all have our fads Como cal At the foot of the stairs Whispering Smith stopped Now I dont know where wo shall find this man but well try tho Threo Horses As they started down tho street McCloud took tho Insider of tho sidewalk but Smith

way Ken nedy sauntered In first and moved slowly ahead Ho was to step asldo only In case ho saw Du Sang Mc Cloud In every instance followed him with Whispering Smith just behind amiably surprised They spent an hour In and out of tho Front street re sorts but their search was fruitless You are sure he is in town asked Kennedy The three men stood deliberating In the shadow of a side streetSure answered Whispering Smith Of course If ho turns tho trick ho wants to get away quietly Ho Is lying low Who Is that Farrell A man passing out of tho shadow of a shade tree was crossing Fort street 100 feet away It looks like our party whispered Kennedy No stop a bUS They drow back into the shadow That Is Du Sang said Kennedy I know his hobble CHAPTER XV A Test Du Sang had the sidewise gait of a wolf and crossed the street with tho choppy walk of the man out of along saddle Being both uncertain and quick ho was a man to slip a trail easily Ho traveled around the block and disappeared among the many open doors that blazed along Hill street Less alert trailers than tho two behind him would have been at fault but when he entered the place u was looking for Kennedy was sO close that Du Sang could havo spoken to him had he turned around Kennedy passed directly ahead A moment later Whispering Smith put his head Inside tho door of thejoint Du Sang had entered withdrew itand rejoining his companions spoke in an undertone A negro dive hos lying low Now wo will keep our regular order Its a half basoment with a bar on the left crap games at tho table behind the screen on tho right Kennedy

tho tables When Smith stepped around the screen and into the flare of tho hang ing lamps Du Sang stood In the small corner below tho screened street win dow McCloud though vitally Interested in looking at tho man that had como to town to kill him felt his at tendon continually wandering back to Whispering Smith Tho clatter of tho rolling dtco tho guttural jargon of tho negro gamblers tho drift of men to and from the bar and the clouds of tobacco smoko made a hazy background for the stoopshouldered man with his gray hat and shabby coat dustcovered and travelstained Industriously licking tho broken wrap per of a cheap cigar and rolling it fondly under his forefinger ho was making his way unostentatiously toward Du Sang Thirtyodd men wore in tho saloon but only two knew what tho storm center moving slowly across the room might develop Kennedy seeing everything and talking pleasantly with ono ot tho barkeepers his closeset teeth gleaming 20 feet away stood at tho end of tho bar slid- Ing an empty glass between his hands Whispering Smith pushed past the on lookers to get to tho end of tho table where Du Sang was shooting Ho made no effort to attract Du Sangs attention and when tho latter looked up he could have pulled the gray hat from the head of the man whoso brown eyes were mildly fixed on Du Sangs dice they wero lying just In front of Smith Looking indifferently at the intruder Du Sang reached for the dlco just ahead of his right hand Whispering Smiths right hand thb fingertips extended on the table rested In front of them It might havo boen through accident or It might havo been through design In his left hand Smith held tho broken cigar and without looking at Du Sang ho passed tho wrapper again over the Up of his tongue and slowly across his lips Du Sang now looked sharply at him and Smith looked at his cigar Others were playing around tho semicircular tableit might mean nothing Du Sang walled Smith lifted his right hand from tho tablo and felt in his waistcoat for a match Du Sang how ever made no effort to tako up the dice Ho watched Whispering Smith scratch c match on tho tablo and either because it failed to light or through design It was scratched the second time on tho table marking a cross between the two dice Tho meanest negro in the joint would not have stood that yet Du Sang hesitated Whispering Smith mildly surprised looked up Hello Pcarllno You shooting bore t Ho pushed tho dlco back toward tho out law Shoot again Du Sang scowling snapped tho dice and throw badly Up jump the devil Is It Shoot again And pushing back the dice Smith moved closer to Du Sang The two men touched arms Du Sang threatened In a way wholly new to him waited like a snako braved by a mysterious enemy Iris eyes blinked like a badgers Ho caught up tho dice and throw Is that the best you can dot arifcd Smith See hero Ho took up the dice Shoot with me I Smith threw the dlco up tho table toward Du Sang Once he throw craps but reaching directly in front of Du Sang ho picked tho dlco up and threw eleven Shoot with me Du Sang Whats your game snapped Du Sang with an oath What do you caro If Ivo got the coin Ill throw you for UO gold piecesDu Bangs eyes glittered Unable to understand tho reason for the affront he stood like a cat waiting to spring This is my game he snarled Then play It Look here what do you want he demanded angrily gumoyouvoDu Sang With his right hand bo snapped the dice ender Du Sanga nose and looked squarely Into his eyes Got any Sugar Buttes money Du Sang for an Instant looked keen ly back his eyes contracted In that time to a more narrow silt then sud den as thought ho sprang back into tho corner Kennedy directly across tho table watched the lightning llkn move For the first time tho crap dealer looked impatiently up It was a showdown No ono watch- Ing the two men under tho window breathed for a moment Whispering I ISmithhalfclosed eyes You cant shoot I craps ho said coldly What can you shoot Pcarllno You cant stop a man on horseback Du Sang know ho must try for a quick kill or mako a retreat Ho took in tho field at a glance Ken nedys teeth gleamed only ton feet away and with his right hand half under his coat lapel ho toyed with his watch chaln McCloud had moved In from the slot machine and stood at tho point of tho table looking at Du Sang and laughing at him Whisper ing Smith throw off all pretense Take your hand away from your gun you alblnol Ill blow your head off lefthanded if you pull Will you get out of this town tonight If you cant drop a man in tho saddle at 250 yards what do you think youd look like after a break with me Go back to the whelp that hired you and tell him when he wants a friend of mine to send a man that can shoot If you are within 20 miles of Medicine head at daylight Ill rope you like a fat cow and drag you down Front street Du Sang with burning eyes shrank narrower and smaller Into his corner ready to shoot It ho had to but not liking the chances No man in Williams Cacho could pull or shoot with Du Sang but no man in tho mountains had over drawn successfully against tho man that faced him Whispering Smith saw that ho would not draw Ho taunted him again In low tones and backing away spoke laughingly to McCloud While Ken nedy covered tho corner Smith backed to tho door and waited for the two to Join him They halted a moment at the door then they backed slowly up tho steps and out Into tho street Thero was no talk till they reached tho Wickiup office Now will some of you tell mo who Du Sang Is1 asked McCloud after Kennedy and Whisper ing Smith with banter and laughing had gono over tho scene Kennedy picked up tho ruler Tho wickedest cruelest man In the bunch and tho best shot Where is your hat George tho ono he put tho bullet through asked Whispering Smith limp in tho big chair Burn it up he thinks ho missed you Burn it up now Never lot him find out what a close call you had Du Sang Yes ho Is cold blooded as a wildcat and cruel as a soft bullet Du Sang would shoot a dying man George just to keep him squirming In tho dirt Did you over see such eyes in a human being sot like that and blinking so in tho light

depended to enable him to finish the whole work within the year was by this news brought to naught Those of the railroad men who said ho could not deliver a completed lino within Uio year could never

is only proper and right that tho publics attention should be called frequently to tho evils of intemperance Few of us meanwhile realize what Immense strides humanity has made In tho course of the centuries toward temperance- As late as 1736 we are told by Pore ter in his Progress of the Nation the favor in which Intoxicating drinks were held by the people had reached coqtlnualdebatesremedies ot a very stringent charac ter It was then the practice of some keepers of liquor shops to entice customers with a notice to be following effect painted on a board outside tho getdrunkpence and have clean straw for noth lug The mere difference In public opinion in our own day and In tho ago which would tolerate such n vicious appeal to the lowest of instincts per haps is Its own best comment When the legislators of that time thinking to correct tho abuse by In creasing the price of spirituous li quors proposed n duty of 20 shillings 480 a gallon tho act led to riot and violence on the part of the populace The secret sale of gin went on In defiance of the law Says the his torian The demand for penalties the offenders were unable to pay filled the prisons and by removing every re straint plunged them into courses more audaciously criminal In March 1738 a proclamation was Issued to enforce the gin act to pro tect the officers of Justice in their efforts to that end and threatening offenders with punishment Within less than two years from Its passage 12000 persons had been subjected to tines The harsh measures failed ut terly as any measure unsupported by public feeling hlwnys must fall Nor were those habits of drunken ness Porter ngaln remarks con fined to the laboring classes What would now be called drinking to ox cess was then so much the custom In every circle that it was as uncom mon for any party to separate while any member of it remained sober as it is now for any ono in such a par ty to degrade himself through Intoxi cation In those days It rarely hap pened that men holding the rank and otherwise bearing the character of gentlemen rose from the table of a dinner party in condition to cuter the society of females and thus all wore debarred from the sweetest hours of rational enjoyment which now springs from social Intercourse The con temporary novels verify these words With reference to this same period another authority tells us No loss of character was incurred by habitual excess Men in the position of gentlemen congratulated each other upon the number of bottles emptied and It would have been considered a very frivolous objection to a citizen who aspired to the dignity of alderman or mayor that he was a habitual drunk ardIt one seeks an explanation for the great and most satisfactory decrease In drunkenness which has come one finds it not In drastic laws or com pulsory prohibition but in the growth of Intelligence among the people in an enlightened public opinion In tho spread of education refinement and sane living consequent thereupon writes I K Friedman In Chicago Dal ly News Better living conditions bet ter wages and shorter hours and the diversion of the people from grosser and crueler forms of sport to healthy amusements have been tremendous factors In the movement Nor Is it to bo doubted that these same beneficent forces increasing in strength as humanity increases In age and experience will lead to a greater and greater decrease in the drinking habit for of all methods of abolishing an evil that of pointing out its bad effects to thoso who indulge in It has proved tho best and the most lasting The Coke Evil Spreading All over the south the cocaine habit seems to be on the Increase remarked Dr J V Hyde of New Or leans in Baltimore the other day lesaenedlit drugIthem visions of paradise The

greater Income la crops and more pleasure in farming We now see what Intensive farming means do we need It Our beautiful forests on the hillsides are fast be ing destroyed and corn planted In place of the trees In about four or five years this land becomes so poor that it will not prduce a good crop if corn wo then let It rest How many of us really think it is resting when It Is producing a big crop of weeds and bushes It is true that in some places the soil washes off BO fast that weeds and bushes can not get a start But some ono says it must be resting because we get a better crop of corn the next time we plant it The answer Is this the plant food from the subsoil has a little time to work up to the top where the corn can get it no food Is added by a weed crop We must use less ccreagc and rest the land by putting in a useful crop such as clover which will really put plant food into tho soil Between now and next week notice how many old worn out cornfields you can find n your

EVERYBODY WINS Continued from Pint 1e1- Izea the Borea stores has suffered from overadvertising But for the sake ot the example leIS let it go at that exorbitant figure What hap l 0Q3 7IFlrstIn Mr Dates advertising he suggests to his customers the purchase of things they had needed but hadnt thought of They didnt have to buy but they wanted to Two hundred of these people as a result bought 5 worth apiece more than they would have That made Jl 000 more trade SecondAa a result of seeing his advertisement suggesting the right thing at tho right time fifty new customers found their way to his place They came again some of them and altogether they averaged buying 20 worth of goods rrhat made another 1000 worth of business This means that bo has 2000 more business than befor- eThirdWhen his new goods came iln his customs heard of It thru the advertisements and came in too And ho got his monoy in shorter timehe could discount more of his bllls5OOO worth Fourth Wheu ho did find some old goods on his hands ho advertis ed a solo at cost and got the stock olt his panda before he lost sty money on It And he didnt have any more old stock than Mr B Iliad If as much Here Is his account Profit 10 per cent on 9500 950 2per cent discount on 5000 100 1050 Lose none on stock but there was that horrible 100 wasted on advertising which has to come out of bin profits He was honest enough not to make that customers pay Ittyou see and only made 10 per cent like Mr B Iliad did So wo put it downDead loss to advertising 100 Net profits 950 What T T J I Why that would be 260 more than B Hind made 4 hat cant bo right Advertising costs money The custom era didnt pay for It and ho sold I goods for the same profit as B Hind So he must have lost on the advertising Figure that out again I Wall no matter how runny times and ways you figure that out tho result will be tho same profits 950 Now where did that money come from Well I toll you what I think That advertising paid for Itself and it paid a profit of 2CO besides And heres a secret Dont tell Mr B lUnd or It might spoil his sleep All the progressive hustllrp geltlngrlchqulck business men of this day and age think the same as I do

has been criticised In ono or two sections of tho State because of Its apparent failure to recognize tho school happen t lIngs of that section In the School News The critlcsm is Just There are several sections of the State unfairly represented In tho news columns For this there are two reasons First the failure of the county newspaper to place the Southern School Journal on Its exchange list We are I sending the Southern School Journal etch month to about seventyfive county newspapers which wo never j see We depend on theso county pa pers for the school news finding this a more satisfactory plan than depending upon personal correspondence where we can secure tho county p peraIof co operation existing between teachers aWl their1 local papers One county newspaper in August gave the greater part of an entire Issue to tho pub lication of the minutes of the teachers Institute and in a footnote ask ed for the support of tho teachers stating that while Its space had been freely given there seemed a total failure on the part of the teacher to appreciate the favor extended There are other papers probably In the same position but rather more long suffering or else more optimistic Tho county newspaper Is a friend to tho teacher a friend from whom we often borrow and whom we seldom fully repay Tho position we secure the successful entertainment our school has given tho purchase of a library cr bookcase or organ for our school the favorable comments on our work these are given space gratis We may borrow our neighbors paper In order to read such comments and may even ask our neighbor to give UB the paper when ho has finished raiding it In order that we may send It to a friend who also Is not a sub scriber When we see tho editor we may remember that It was he who made such pleasant publicity possible whllolthely thinking of the coal bill which the I one dollar subscription would bring might help him to pay and tho cake I of Lava soap ho needs to hands of printers ink

houses in Washington and the chief botanist says the outlook is promis ing The aim Is not to greatly In r create the size of the berry but to Improve the flavor if possible An Im portant discovery Is the fact that the blueberry requires an acid soil which 1agriculturlsts generally seek to miti Ii gate as the first step toward general cultivation A fungus on the roots of the blueberry enables the plant to as I similate the food which It draws from the acid soil Success Is therefore In dicated on nearly worthless areas possessed of the proper soil elements on which the necessary acidity can bet retained In other words blueberry culture may be profitable on soils i which are good for nothing else and for that reason have been practically abandoned The experiment at Wash ington hints at

the major leagues Williams was not at his boat last season and La jolo lacked a few points of traveling at his top speed at times while Evcrs coming slowly each year showed more brilliancy than either during the race and lacked but n small margin of reaching the highwater mark of the phenomenal performances by Napoleon Lajolo who without doubt to my way of figuring has a shade on nil second basemen
