Tobacco An exchange thinks there is more money for the farmer in wheat fit 1 per bushel than in to bacco at 200 per acre consider ing the labor and drain on the land and the difference in the two crops Wheat it is pointed out is easily and quickly put in the ground and then there is no more labor or trouble with the crop un til the harvest and thseshing sea sun which with modern methods is a light and comparatively cheap jobsIn contrast is the months of laird labor and drudgery and ex posuije to all sorts of weather and heavy outlay for help and hand hire and the quick exhaustion of the soil in the production of to bacco After summing up the expense and receipts of a heavy yielding tobacco crop the prolitis placed at not more titan 3 per acre Thats about the correct ligure and when you read of such big money being made ingrosvingto buccd just set it down as coming from sources not posted as to the costiulllimeysoHlaborand back greaco of a tobacco crop The worst enemy the country

catalpa last year part of these being in Kentucky one at Wil ders Licking river near New port The object is to secure timber for cross ties and tele graph poles for future use the catalpa being of

With Nature Real life is the life of the country The life of the hills and the plains is hand and hand with na ture Many city people who trav el the superficial highways of artificial society have an idea that the country is only for the pro duction of corn and pork and that the making of men is a task x left to the cities Perish the thought Natuarally the city attracts people because of the centered opportunities and advantages which are possible only in large communities If he is to be ev ery inch a man he needs as a foundation something that the artificialties of the city cannot supply that something is a boy hood that instills into the soul the loves and longings of the fields and the woods the yearnings and aspirations that are born of ryalife whose paths lead close to natures confidences There is a M permeating uplifting influeuce a in a field of new mown hay a freshly turned furrow a flower dotted meadow through which a little busy brooklet born of a pure bubbling spring winds its search to some friendly river There is in all this a breadth a purity an ingeniousness that is impossible in city life where everything is veneered with show andsham It is therefore an inspiring intoxication for the man whose avenues lead between skyscrap ers and false fronts to get away from the shutin smokeinfested confines of the congested city There is a world of truth in

W HENRY A Good word is as soon said as an ill one r r I h 5v Vaccinate Your Land Have you had your farm vac cinated If not you should pro ceed to have it done at once say the Minneapolis Journal Sci once has done a great deal for the farmers It has killed the bugs and worms that prey on hit crops it has treated his animals when sick und saved their lives it has experimented with seeds and raised the quality and quart tity of their yields it has done many things to help him achieve successThe latest series of special in terest which we have heard from is that of the process of inoculat ing sterils ground and making it being forth the fruit in an a bundance is an easy task Inoc ulation to prevent smallpox diphtheria rabies etc we knew about but it is quite as mysterious as the inoculation of the old worn out soils to make them fer tileCertain germs make for fertil ity of the soil They are collect ed or generated by the depart ment of agriculture according to this veracious authority and sent by mail in a small package a bout like a yeast cake The cake is said to contain millions of dri ed germs It is thrown into a barrel of pure water and turns it a milk white Seeds of grain and grass es are washed with this water and when planted are said to pro duce wonderful results even on what is regarded as exhausted soil The land is really treated to an inoculation and cured of its disease of barrenness Have your farm vaccinated and get rich from the big crops you will raise Complainers of Hard Luck A writero in Word and Works very truthfully says There are a great many people who com plain of hard luck They say that fates are against them that all their undertakings go to the bad that their neighbors succed with little exertion while they work hard and fail They believe in good luck and bad luck and will argue with you all day that suc cess is largely a matter of chance They cite you to Solomon the wise man who said that the race is not to the swift nor the battle to the strong but time and chance happen to them all or words to thatoffect There is no use arguing with the believers They claim to have learned in the school of experience and they cite you to numerous examples They are like the housewife who knew that there was something in planting potatoes on the dark or light of the moon for she had tried both ways When a nun knows a thing of course you can not convince him But all ye hard lockers come to book and be fair Arent you responsible in a measure at least for your ijard luck Isnt your hard luck due to your own laziness or your own neglect or your misdoings Have you not come pretty near getting all that deserved Hasnt the world given you all it owes you Havent you gotten value received for all that you have givenThese are searching questions and you are not expected to answer them to the general public but answer them to your own conscience and bo sure that it is honest An honest confession even to yourself is good for the soul amid such confession may help you to mend your ways and give yourself a better chance and give the world abetter chance t F V to reward you Be fair with yourself and fair with the world There is something in opportunity but the man who gives the world a faithful and honest service will get fair compensation luck or no luck Be ever ready to work with willing hands and heart and do less complaining a bout hard luck They Accept From an exchange we clip the following truthful unto ahout a much practiced and a most deceitful habit There was a time when people secured positions but now in the vernacular of the press reporter they always ac cept It matters not how long and hard the chase after the posish and how much influen tial backing when it is secured it is announced as an acceptance It is certainly creditable toaper son to seek and secure employment whether it is digging in a ditch or running a big corpora lion driving a cart or commer cial traveling and time accept falsehood should be cut out A Texas editor IIBB hit the right spot when he says The sorriest fellow on the earth is the fellow who will sit around and cuss his own town If I lived astride the north pole I would call it home and be ready to boost it up If Icouldnf say anything mice about it I would say my ice bill didnt come high I would not stay in a town I had to cussnot while the world is ns
