Tyler, president of the Hickman Bank, was led to remark Friday, on account of a shortage of small change, that one of the peculiar problems of a small bank is the continual drain on subsidiary coin. It is ncticable that hundreds of people enter a bank daily and get change for bills, while practically none ever bring in small denominations and ask for larger ones. One unacquainted with the banking business would naturally think the small coins would come back to the bank in the way of deposits but such is not the case.

Mr. lankersley has always farmed and says he would do nothing else but he reminds us that the newspaper men too often assert that a farmer is the most independent man on earth and that he has nothing much to do but enjoy life. In explaining the other side" of the farmer's lite, he says we overlook the fact that when winter cotaes and the blizzard's on the wing, the farmer has something else to do besides toasting his feet in the oven and reading the Hickman Courier. That there are other things to disturb him besides the call to a banquet of mince: pies and other luxuries. The industrious farmer begins work before the sun thinks of putting up. With his soul shrouded in gloom he proceeds to build a fire and soften his boots with a sledge hammer. He then takes a lantern and shovels his way to the barn and feeds the hogs. It is then time to feed the newly arrived calf which seems to delight in butting a pail of milk over the tiller of the soil until he only needs to be stamped to pass for a He p ack a ge of oleomargarine. crawls through the wire fence and digs the hay out of the snow, feeds the cow, cleans the stable, gathers the frozen chicks, chases a stray pig worth about 25 cents four miles and does not catch it, doctors a sick: horse, freezes his fingers and gets: mule, and kicked by a when the gloaming comes and quaint-ne- ss broods over all the earth he has a single half hour to meditate and; wonder how he will pay his taxes.

The military organization of the Young Turks" in Macedonia and Asia Minor, the strength of which forced the Sultan to grant tho constitution, has been intact. Backed by It, tho Macedonian reformers arc demanding still other concessions from tho Sul tan, and, in tho event of his refusal, political leaders express the fear that another uprising will bo inaugurated and the Empire thrown Into a war. In an effort to pacify the Macedo nians, the Sultan has sent Koutshouk to Macedonia to explain the new con stitution. Everything possible will be done to allay the fear in this part of the Empire, as it is recognized that the 3upport of the young Turks is nee essary to the fulfillment of the prom ised reforms.

Doth wero reaching out to tho now fields, nnd Chambers knew that bo long as Haylcss' strength and position wcro so strong his great desires of conquest could not be gratified. Ho deemed himself tho wiser, moro resourceful buslnoss man, and ho figured that a linking of the two families by tho marrlaga tlo would afford him tho opportunity that might enable him oventually to wield tho scepter ot mastery. Away back in tho grammar-schoo- l days Marsylla Haylcss, now a vivacious social butterfly, plighted her troth to Gerard Chambers. In tho years that followed tbo ways parted, but each was actunlly forced to affect a relationship that was moro than that ot mcro friendship. Marsylla's greeting was coated with Sho tried tho sugar ot to Impress upon Jerry that sho was too happy for adequate expression.

"Through school at last, and now for tho cruel, cruel world," said she, ns thoy sat on a davenport In tho mellow light of a shaded tablo lamp. "You must now feel Indeed that you have entered Into man's estate. What arc your plans?" Jerry had determined to humor his father as much as ho consistently could, but ho also was equally deter mined to let hor know that ho was not dangling at tho end of her string. "I think I'll bo going away for a time," said he. "To the beach?" "Oh, perhaps. I'll be gono for at least two years and maybo longer. I may havo a world ot fun." "Two years?" sho said In surprise, and her pretty brow wrinkled. "Why, Jerry, you you never have mentioned this to me" "I really haven't told anybody nbout my plans.

It Is simply a selfish notion" "Jerry!" Tho Interruption was as flcrco n nny that hnd over broken n sentenco from tho seventh person. "Hut ns to money?" went on tho father In n much milder tone. "I'll need no money now," nnd Jerry laughed aloud. Ills father's brow wrinkled In amazement. "No money? How In tho world do you expect to keep allro?" Jerry hold out his hands and nodded significantly nt them. "Woll, well, well." chuckled Mr. Chambers, "If that's tho case I can't say that I envy you your 'vacation. Do you really think you can earn your salt to say nothing about your pep. per? Getting along In this world of ours, you must remember, doesn't mean lifting your volco In a glco club or hating tho unsophisticated freshman." "I'll have to exist, that's all cither exist or starve." "Well, starving, I've been told, Is not tho beat thing In tho world for ono's constitution." Wallaco Chambers admired the son's spirit, but tho earnestness of Jerry's purposo chilled him. Ho tried to appear cheerful, but Jerry know that tho older "colors" wcro drooping. After thoughtfully running through the mass of papers on his desk, ho said: "You may do as you plcato, my son. You aro old enough to follow the dictates of your mind, and I shall not put an obstaclo In your way. It you think tho fish In worth tho bait and troublo of landing it, and you have tho right kind of a hook, why, go on. I want you to feci, however, that I am tbo real sufferer. You know what my business has grown to bo and that one day It will bo all yours. My cherished plans for a decent vacation aro shattered. Hero I havo given you course In Spanish, so that a you might sry soon assume chargo of my business In Havana. You can speak tho languago woU enough to keep thoiii from handing you wooden money nnd worthless contracts. I am downright sorry and tremendously disappointed, that's all." There was a suggestion of molsturo In his eyes when ho said resignedly, with a wnvo of his hand: "Hun homo now and mako peaco with your mother that unfortunate daughtor of Aquarius, and with but I am not going to talk about her now." That night Jerry succeeded In ob taining what ho was magnanimous enough to call hor consent, through tho unwilling assistance of his father, who appeared to favor tho "experl enco," as ho called IL "Maybo, Isabella," said Wullaco Chambers, "this thing will do him good It will certainly 'do' mo good. When ho gets back and there may be enough ot tho 'Chambers' In him to get him back In somo manner, shapo or form ho may, If ho avails himself ot his opportunities, bo a modcrato Judge ot human naturo and tho gon oral run of things. Of course, wo don't count. My pleasure In the mat tor Is not to bo considered. You and I, lovoy, will contlnuo to tako our week-enJaunts Into tho country and to got back moro tlrc"d, more worn out than when wo started." Wallaco Chambers was among tho first of tho great merchants of tho United States to see tho possibilities ot a war with Spain. Ho beheld a vast field In tho far east opening, nnd ha saw tho advantages of being first In that Held-- ho, liko tho stalwarts who built up an American navy before congress could do- a tormlno tho whys and wherefores, saw years ahead. For thrco years before tho arras pf tho Don and ot tho Van kco clashed ho had Jerry studying Spanish. "Ot courso, you nro going to see Marsylla said Mrs. Cham hers, after Jerry hnd said something about calling on somebody elso. I guoss, mother," ho "Not answered. "I'll see her In tlmo." His father frowned at this; ho detected no desire ut ail on tho yflung man's part to visit tho girl whom he had chosen for his wlfo. "It strikes me," said ho, "that you aro a bit unreasonable In this. You must bo aware ot tho tact that you are dis plouslng me." Jorry, realizing that In this Instance at least wisdom was tho better part ot valor, hastened to. say that ho would go to seo Marsylla naylcss first of all 'Tcrhnps, Jerry," said Mrs. Cham bors, after hor husband had left tliojr presence, "you do not caro for Mar sylla as you might if sho were any. body else, but you know that your ia thers likes her, and It Is Just as well to humor him for a tlmo.

"I prefer not to discuss" "I prefer to discuss," Interrupted tho father, sternly. "Aro you trying to be about tho thing, sir?" "No I am not," angrily returned Jerry. His patlcnco was going fast. "You certainly are displeasing mo grpatly. I no longer can doubU that you And pleasure In your notions. You must not Imagine, sir, that" I am to bo bull-heade- s; "Father, I think I nm capable of; doing somo of ny .own thinking now," was tho heated retort. Jerry's checks' were nflamo nnd his blood was boiling. "Ungrateful "Unreasonable " nnd Jerry checked himself as quickly as he had checked his Irnto father. Wallaco Chambers was so angry that ho brought his teeth together hard and clenched his haitils. For a moment his tonguo burned tho words that came. "You may go to your room now," ho "Hut finally said, forcing calmness. T shall havo something to Bay later on, remember." "If you Insist on saying something, father, say It now." "You know well enough how I feel towards Marsylla Haylcss." "And you know how I feel." "Again you are unreasonable. You You are fighting will not listen. against tho best thing that fate has in store for you. You aro moro than independent you aro downright sir!" Again tho blood surged In tho father's veins, and again the ire and resentment flared up in Jerry. "I do not lovo Marsylla Bayless," snapped Jerry, "and tho match you would have made would bo a curso to both of us." "Again I say you aro unreasonable; you are displeasing me mightily," and the father's tono had an ominous ring. "I am no longer a boy, father." "You may go to your room!" half cried the father. "Let this stubbornness wear off and you'll como to see that your father Is right that the college-breyoungster Is wrong. Jerry went to his room with brain afire, and In a few minutes, from a re clining position on the couch, ho was rushing clouds of smoko across the room. There was but ono thing to do to acqulesco to his father's way of thinking or to take a determined stand against it Then thoughts of the future flashed across his brain.

Scores o' young fellows that know all about shlppln' can't get places." Jerry went across to a saloon and bought a quart of whisky, which he presented to tho old sailor. "Just to show thore is no hard feeling," ho laughed, as ho handed him tho bottle. He was about to leave when the old man'a brow became furrowed In thought. Presently the sailor said, feelingly: "Know what a supercargo Is?" "No." "Well, a supercargo's ono that goes with a shipment o' goods looks after It, and the like, you know." "He doesn't havo to possess much knowledge of shipping, then?" asked the much interested Jerry. "He don't have to know the difference 'tween a spar V a mlzzen-mast- , Ho's a good sort liko a passenger." "Do you know of any ono that needs a supercargo? I'll mak'o you a present of a dozen bottles, ot the best liquor In that saloon It you can put mo In touch with such a fellow. Yes; sir, If you can get me on a boat that's bound for somo foreign shoro and takes Its time about It, I'll tack on a $20 gold piece besides." "That's worth tryln' for," said tho tar, knocking tho ashes from his pipe. "I havo a cap'n in mind that might be able to uso a supercargo. We'll Jus' try, anyway, and if nothln' comes of it, why, thero won't bo a heap lost." At tho expiration of an hour Jorry and the old sailor approached tho pier of the Sister Mary, an old freight-e- r of tho smaller type, over In the Erlo basin. "Cap'n Hank Hulgor's nbout ready to tako tho Mary out," said Jerry's companion, "and It's barely possible ho might havo room tor you. I don't think ho had a supercargo yestlddy." Tho sailor led Jerry to tho cabin of tho vessel, where tho captain, a man of nbout 55, was reading. At the sight of tho two tho captain shouted out In a deep bass volco: Steve! swordflsh, "Swnllowln what fetches you 'round? I thousht you cleared this mornlng'l" "Waltln over till tomorrow," said Stove (Jerry never learned his sur- pamo). "Hank, I vo got a young fellow here that wants to go out with you. He's likely enough, I think. Did tho cuss you was 'Epoetin' show up?" "No, damned llttlo liar went back on his word," answered Capt. Bulger, hotly, "I'd nbout concluded to do without this time, Stevo." Addressing Jerry, ho udded: "Wont to ship?" "My frlond hore apoke about a " Bald Bulgor, "Oh, i glancing significantly at Stove. "You might do worso, Hank," Bald Stevo, who was beginning to feel tho effects ot tho whisky Jerry had given him, "I think ho's constructed o' tho seasoned timber. You'll do mo a favor it you can And a berth for him." Capt. Bulger and Stevo went to the other ond of tho cnbln and talked la a low tone tor several minutes. Jerry did a deal ot wondering, but with each succeeding moment his hopes rose higher. VAro you willln' to put uu with heap?" questioned the captain, returning to Jerry, whom his keen eyes almost pierced. "I am willing to put up with almost anything," enthusiastically answered the soventh person. "Well, I'll give you a trial," said tha captain, thinking hard. "You can act as supercargo on tho Mary. You wouldn't be worth a strand o' seaweed at shlppln', and I ain't on the lookout for ornaments Jus' now. The Mary pulls in her ropes at half after seven In tho mornln'." The announcement that tho Sister Mary would start to sea tho following morning sent a thrill over Jerry and caused his heart to beat hard and. fast. Ho was too excited at the moment to consider the result of an interview with tho folks at hifme. "Thero ain't much pay, you know on'y enough to buy your tobacco and get drunk once in a while If you get a chance," said Bulger. "I don't care much about the money end of It," said the exuberant seventh person. "All I wnnt Is to get to another continent and be on the sea at least a month." "The Mary will bo movln for more 'n a month, most likely," said Bulger. "I reckon you'd best think twice before takln' mo up on this proposition, "Oh, I'll go," said Jerry. "Where Is tho boat bound for?" "Sho'll stick her nose straight across," half frowned the captain. "And her cargo?" "Guns arms for a military school. Remember, tho Mary ain't much la tho habit o' waltin' for anything 'r anybody," the captain addod as ho started to walk away with Stevo, "and if you ain't hero prompt you'll get left." Jerry gavo Stevo $20 and then started home. He had a hard time bringing himself to a realization of the situation. His enthusiasm was running very high and his eyes reflected tho oxcltement that raged within him. That night ho told his parent3 ot what fato had offered, and they both quailed at the thought ot tho reality. After long argument, in which tho father endeavored "on behalf ot mother" to dissuade Jerry from such an early departure, and In which Jerry Insisted ho must go, "Wallaco Chambers' "colors" flew Into tho air. It was not, howavcr, until Mrs. Chambers had gono to hor room, almost heart-brokethat ho gavo vent to his fury. "You havo decided to go,'-- ' ho, snapped, "and I shall tlo no Btrtng to you, nor will you tlo a string to mo. Have you given thought to what I had to say last night?" "Father, If you will but listen" began Jerry, pleadingly. "I want au answer," stornty. "What shall I say?" "Say that you will seek to marry Marsylla Bayless." "Let mo thluk " "Answer!" "No! I will uot make such a promlso now," and flro was flashing from Jer ry'a eyes. "Mako It now or not at all." "Thon, not at alll" Wallaco Chambers, almost beyond control ot his will, went Into the houso without another word. Jorry followed and asked that ho say nothing to his mother about what had passed between them. "This is our affair," said his fathor In a chilling tone. "She need know nothing about It." . for" (TO BE CONTINUED trK Cold As Charity Buy your calendars at home. Arc lamps? Tel. No. 4 Are tbe Drinks Miss Cleve Thomas, of Earle, Arte , is visiting here.

James has refused to pay over to the three educational institutions of the state the $500,000 appropriated for them by the last session of the general assembly and will not do so until he has an opinion of the attorney gen eral advising him to do so. The question of the constitution ality of the act as passed by the legislature has been raised and until he is sure that all is right the audi tor will not turn over one cent to the state normal schools or the state university. About $80,000 of the appropriation is now due. Auditor James' doubt as to the constitutionality of the law arises under that part of Section 184 of the constitution, which reads as fol Miss Mary Waters arrived home from Humboldt today where she has been visiting relatives.

Every sonsnn In this western conn try largo numbers ot plumi aro lost by tho fruit falling to tho ground In state. An examination tho ot this fruit will show that It Is In fested with whlto grubs, which eat Into tho kernel nnd causa it to drop, Tho work Is very similar to the plum curculto, which Is such a serious pest In tho eastern states. This Insect, howevor, Is a''natlvo western form nnd finds its way Into our plum orchard from tho patches of wild plums which grow along al most ovcry creek. It Is a very difficult Insect to com bat, becauso the work Is done Inside tho fruit, and poisons ennnot be ap plied for tho larval forms of tho In sect Tho adult Insect can sometimes bo killed by spraying tho plum trees with nrscnato ot lead or other poisons of a similar naturo In tho tamo way that npplo trees aro sprayed. Tho adult beetles cat the young leaves or cut off tho stems ot the young fruit. nnd poisons placed in these localities aro likely to provo helpful remedies. Tho adult beotlos may bo caught by Jarring tho trees. Tho Insect "plays possum" when a limb is Jarrod and drops to tho ground. If tho ground Is covered with sheets, tho Insects may bo gathered In them and destroyed. This Is best dono early In tho day and should bo contlnuod from tho tlmo tho plum trees aro In blossom until tho first of June. Tho insects are reddish brown snoot beetles about a quarter of an Inch In length. Thoy aro qulto oaslly rccog' nlzcd, and It present, somo will be found usually each morning. A fow Jarrlngs of the tree will Indicate whether or not tho Insects aro nu merous and whother this remedy should bw continued. Probably this remedy Is tho most usoful ono jln the homo orchard pr gardon. It is a good plan to permit chickens to run around about tho trees, since they often pick up tho wcovits or the larvae that havo como to tho ground. During tho summer all plums which fall from the trees and even those which show tho marks whllo they are still on tho trees should bo taken and destroyed. By destroying we mean burning or somo other mothod which will mako suro that tho Insect inside tho plum is killed. S.
