issue of a local paper we note the following bit of mews A good many are on the sick list with colds and grip including our genial townsman lobe Snuth Sorry for you Tobe it is 10 fun to be sick A tantrum is life and life in such abundance that it boils over It means potential excellence and it you will only wait you will find that the child who occasionally has a tantrum will grow into a man who will have the strength to care for himself and his strength will overflow so liecan bear burdens fer others and never fesll the weight SUCCESS ANI HOW TO ATTAIN IT Wheiij there is a question of success do not look to this man or that newspaper for help look to your work and make it of such o quality that the market must come to you Saccess is simply applying good sense in business methods Good sense manifests itself in not trying to foist upon your fellow man any manufactured article or article of merchandise that you are convinced is of an inferior qualityD Dickinson raises and puts onto the market the finest apples in Fulton county When he offers a barrel of his fruit to any of Hickmans merchantsI I they know that getsti 1 jtle top price without question or cavil To use his own words the center of gravity for small apples ia toward the center of the barrel Squire Dickin sons small apples are culled out and sqld for what they areor fed to his lions In consequence of this adherence to honest busii ness methods ho has earned and mantaine a wide reputation for integrity and good business sense I am not calling the attention of the readers to the above from any other motive than a desire to point out that reputation in any particular line once made is the sequel of success Success means a good easy living of affluence if desired The dairy man who gives the business his strict attention as to details keeps good stock brings his milk to market in clean vessels pure and sweet I and above all is prompt in de liverances soon develops a business that stays with him and affords him not only the neces saries but also many of the luxuries of life So in horses IOultry hogs andall the pro ducts of the farm Get the best to start with maintain that standard and soon a reputation is assured you that only yourself can overturn Merchants usually measure the price of the farmers produce by the worst that is brought to them They have long since learned that puny farmers wives cannot pro duce a good article of butter unscrupulous ones will foist upon them sick eggs and decayed vegetables While all these methods are in vogue low prices will prevail in Ilickmnn while St Louis Cincinnati and Louisville are paying fancy prices for choice poultry strictly fresh eggs prime country butter and vegetables This condition of allairs however we 1 think has

court used to be colonel of thf Seventh regiment the famous Irish regi ment of the Illinois National Guard Sc strict was the rule of admission to the regiment that before a man was placed on the muster roll he was obliged tc prove his nationality This proof was secured by sending the candidate in charge of a corporals guard to the wind swept corner of the Masonic temple Hr was also given a pipe full of tobacco and a single match If standing at the cor ner he was able to light his pipe with the one match he was adjudged worthy of admission to the regiment During the SpanishAmerican wai Col Kavanagh took his regiment intc camp yearning for active service Then was a private in the regiment named Casey Casey was in a way the butt of the regiment He was always gottin into trouble and his native Irish wit was always getting him out again The regiment wanted to do some fight Ing and its members chafed against the confinement and strict discipline ot camp life All sorts of excuses were presented by members who wanted to be shipped back to Chicago for a few days Cot Kavanngh got to bo sadly cynical One day Private Casey managed tt slip by the sentinel In front of Col Kay anaghs

Polish farm hand who had been in this country only three months and had proved himself to be far above they aver age laborer at nearly every kind of farm work on the farm I never saw a better man in the field he said than Stanis laus I hear he this done a mans work on a farm since he was 12 years old but he has never milked a cow The New York Sun gives the farmers views In regard to the Importance of milking In his country milking ife work tot the women to do If a Polish peasant man is seen milking he is asked if he haE forgotten to put on his petticoat Stan islaus says he is perfectly willing tc learn but I dont know that he will make a good milker willing as he is Many American farmers seem tc think that almost anybody can milk but our dairymen are beginning to learn better A milker must be clean and he must be quiet and gentle An expert make must have one other very important qualification he must be quick ThE quicker the milking the richer the milk if the work Is done well and completely I am inclined to think that it mighttr be better for our American dairy inter ests if milking were a part of women- work as it is in many European coun tries The dairymen of England are do ing everything they can to perpetuatet the custom of employing women instea- of d men as milkers and to maintain theE efficiency of the milkmaids We never hear of a dairy show tin England nowadays without Its popula milking contest in which the milkmaids contest with one another These con tests are the talk of the British dair F districts and are proving to be very use ful I shall not be surprised if in th c course of the next ten years the milk maids of America become very mud more numerous Perhaps a lot of prize winning maids of England should be imported to arouse the emulation of thel tlI iI American ststersII Olil Alte IVualoiiM Under the old age pension law of New Zealand a person to draw a pension i must be C5 years of age and must havE resided in New Zealand

xcetleut 5to41y for Muileiith A bulleUn recently issued by Colo rndo college corrects the popular error that there nee only a few Kinds of bees Sonic people indeed think that there are only threo the honey bee bumble bee and a smaller wild species According to the authority Just quoted no less than 1878 different species of wild bees have been described from North America that is Includ ing all of the country north of Panama up to the present day When one comes to study the habits and struc ture of all these bees says the New York Tribune it Is possible to under stand why the varieties are so numer ousTho poUon of flowers has to be carried principally by insocta that ot one flower to other flowers of the same sort In order to bring about the far UUaattou and production of wed Of alt the invert carriers the bees are the most important They visit the flowers for nectar and pollen to store up in nests for their young When so doing they carry the dustlike pulton from dower to flower leaving a little of that previously gathered each time they alight on a blossom Now suppose that all boas visited indiscriminately every sort of flower it would continually happen that the pollen of ono species of plant was loft on the flower of a quite different species where it would bo altogether useless It is desirable therefore that each kind of bee should visit one par- tIcular kind of plant or at any rate should prefer certain kinds This proves to bemore orless the case and there are many bees that never visit more than one sort of flower The num ber of flowers is very great and con sequently it is not surprising to find that there are many sorts of beee In numerous instances the mouth part of the bees is exactly suited ty the flowers they visit Thus certal kinds with very

fag pillow is made of silk or made of satin It matters not what the outside may be It is the interior part that is important says the Brook I yn Eagle The pillow when it is made must i contain a small slit in one side a slit Just largo enough to admit ones hand Into this thero can be bundled the con of a rose jar The Idea is to produce a variety oC steal And when all the odors of Araby and a few extra ones have been the whole must be stuffed into the pillow- It is a very good plan to add a few feathers or a little down for rose leaves are not always soft enough and sweet grasses have stir hard stems A little inner pillow of down or a few handsfnl of down added to tbe leaves the balsam the lavender and all the rest will make the pillow light and fluffyThe pillow must be filled with every sort of sweet thing all nicely dried and rolled with the hands Rolling the leaves and the grasses with the hands tends to powder them and make them softer and more easily packed The first breath of the pillow is that of herbs It seems a little like a pin pillow Late in the season when all the rest have begun to grow dint one gets the scent of the rose leaves They pervade everything upon which the pillow lies and even ones hair and lones gown if one hOB lain upon the pillow will smell like rose loaves If one wants it to bo real rose one can adda drop of attar of rose and ten drops of oil of rose geranium Shake it through tho leaves before putting them In the pillow let dry off a little to take off the oily feeling and then one will have a scented pillow that Is a scented pillow Such a pillow is not for ordinary use It Is not for show but for headaches It is kept put away In tho locker or high in the clothes press where tint e sills quilts lie When tired the owner of the brain fag pillow breathes it long and deopl and sometimes she falls asleep Tho sleep may not be more than five minutes long just the forty winks o beauty sleep But what are the r sults Bright eyes quick good

previous conditions and present iuvirorments we feel the loss of our buy possibly a trifle more than others under similar circum stances We desire to take this means of publicly expressing our heartfelt gratitude to tho many friends who have called upon our wife and rendered every service possible She is doing finely stud her recovery is but a matter of time The baby lived six hours and we named him Geo W Wilson Ho vas buried Sunday morning December 20 in the city cemetery An effort way niado this week to release Birch Hollier convicted of bootlegging and serving out tines of S200 in the county inilbut as Jailor Noonon knew that no one but the governor of the state had any right to cause the release of convicted prisoners ho refused to turn them out In this connection we desire to say that the will of the people of Hickman is that these men convicted of the crime ol bootlegging pay the penalties assessed against them by the courts and that it is their intention to see that the letter of the law against bootlegging is carried out The friendly offices of some of our citizens in behalf of these bootleggers will avail them nothing bnt the disapprobation of the people and the sooner they realize this fact the better it will be for them We decline to men tion names for their owners good and hope that in this as in other eases a word to the wise is Huflcient The Shortest Day

TIME Eton the fchnnjje from Eolgr lime Yilu Effected lu Ottltinture Twenty Years Act I I Previous to November 18 1SSS there bad been as many different kinds of time in the United States as thore were cities towns and villages and It was necessary for a traveler In those days to be moving his watch backward and for ward as he progressed over the country Railroads in their attempt to use some special time throughout their systems reaehed or left a town ahead or behind the scheduled time according to the local I standards I The new system finally adopted was a simple one and has proved most successful says the Baltimore News Previously each town or city based its local time upon mean sun time but the new system abolished this and dividing the country into certain districts parallel of longitude being the boundaries adopted as i standard time for all the territory within the prescribed boundaries the mean sun time for the central degree of longi tudeAfter this system had been worked out and approved by pie United States goy eminent officials it was decided to put it into operation on November IS which was Sunday and on the same day the railroads of the country put into effect new winter schedules Plans for inaug uration of the new system of time caused much excitement everywhere as it meant that all watches and clocks would have to be changed and that many people were going to lose several minutes out of their lives while many more were going to gain several minutes In Baltimore the proposed change caused much interest as local time hofe was six minutes and 28 seconds faster than the scent fifth meridian time and all clocks and watches had to be sot back that much Lieut Commander Thomas Perry United States navy who had figured out Baltimore time found that the Washington monument here was situated at longitude 76 degrees 36 minutes and 59 seconds west of Greenwich England where the calculation of the worlds longitude begins and that sun time here was five hours six minutes and 2S seconds behind Greenwich time With the corrections under the present system Baltimore time is exactly five hours slower than Greenwich time It was arranged for the convenience of Baltimoreans that the new oilicial time should be struck off at noon bv Dig Sam the bell in the city hall tower and should also be sent out over the fire alarm telegraph and struck off by thei bells on the engine houses throughout 1 the city As usual the city hall clod was out of order and Big Sam refused to work so Mr A Lehman to whom had been delegated the job used a sledgej hammer to make Big Sam toll the new time He depended upon his watch and started to work five seconds too soon Chief Charles J McAleese received the accurate time by telegraph from Vasli ington and aent out fryer hVlft 6lfalnrni1 telegraph and the bells all over the oity notified the people that it was time to jump their watches anil clocks six minutes and 28 seconds ahead The new time was generally in
