Theso skates, which resemble nothing more than miniature bicycles, weigh 25 pounds each, and work automatically. Thoy havo thick pneumatic tiros and tho wheels, of which there are two on each skate, are II Inches In diameter. Thirty miles an hour can easily be ciade by an unexpegonced skater with these skates. The skate Is clamped to the shoo, and when tho foot Is raised a spring Is automatically wound up around a specially constructed gear attached to the rear wheel. When the foot Is put to the ground the pressure reloases the spring, unwinds the gear, and revolvos tho rear wheel at a great rate. Nearly 900 revolutions a mlnuto aro thus produced. t r' " btj C What He Had to Say.

LOUIS WEATHERLY JT1 rVl minn f jaZoxxt.xcJ.y "It you mode a slnvo dress nud live as you do he would run nwayt" And tho sneered n rich Athcnlnn man ho nddrossed was ono of tho first Socand greatost of Progross-Makorrates. This sago, who revolutionized religion, thought nnd education, looked hobo than a more like a comic-pape- r genius. Socrates was tho son of a statue-selle- r his father's nnd learned Tho Greeks of his time trade (471-39IJ C.) worshiped a colony of gods who wero supposed to Inhabit Mount Olympus, who led scandalous llvos and who blessed or cursed ninn-kinaccording to the whim of the momont. To those gods tho Athenians orected nltnrs. mndo sacrifices and supported a body of prlosts. "The actions attributed to our gods," said Socrates, "would dlsgraco the vilest of human bolngs. It Is Impossible that tho world can bo governed by such dlotles." Yot ho saw that somo ruling force controlled human destiny, and he began to prench tho oxlstonce of a Supreme DolnK. nn nnd bonofl- cent Creator of Substituted Truth tho ya8t unlverso. for Superstition. To th,9 he .,,,,,,,, tho bellof that man's spirit is Immortal and not tho mere sport of dwoller of Olympus, somo and that a guardian nngel (or conscience) dictates nil mortal Impulses. Ho argued that men should labor and prny to become better and wlsor Instead of making sacrifices of sheep nnd cattlo on the altars of tho Olympian gods In hopes of being fatored with luck In war and business. This doctrine of higher Idoals and the discovery of conscience's exlstonco raised a howl from the hosts of priests.. Rut Socrates- did not stop thoro. He attacked tho nnrrow, stupid system of education In vogue In Athens and sought to rebuild It on broader, more modern lines, adapting tho vague, abstract facts to practical value and . teaching youths to think for Ho was. In a way. the founder of modern education He also assailed municipal Rrftft and Incompetence and tried to show his fellow Allien lans their duty toward the state. It was largely due to his opjoltlon thnt the tyrnnnlcnl council of thirty, who ruled with tho Iron hand of Injustice, was As deposed and a democrapvformcd. an example In patriotism he served for threo years as a private soldier, winning fame for his courage and endurance. But he rofused to nccopt promotion In rank or public office of any kind. He furthermore lived In abject poverty that he might teach othors to think more, of the mind and soul than Rousing people's dorof the body. mant minds, teaching them to think for themselves, fearlossly rebuking public Injustice and superstition, he gathered about him so many disciples and admlrors that the government became seriously alarmed. Persecutions nnd 111 treatment beenme his reward. Not tho least of theso came upon htm at home. He was married to a shrew named Xantlppe, who could not In the very least appreciate him and who by hor scoldings nnd beatings made his life a dally burden. He bore all this with the patlonco of a true philosopher. But worso wns In store for him. Tho tyrannous council of thirty whom he bnd so often assailed had not molested him. It romalned for the popular democratic government (which ho hnd helped to restore) to nrrost him and bring him to trial for his llfo. He was accused by tho authorities with denying tho gods, pronchlng tho existence of a new God and of corrupting the young by his tenchlngs. Socrates replied In effect Condemned to th h(J hn(, more. Defies ,v Death Bub8tltuted Judges. tnUh for flupftr. stltlon, and thnt his only "corrupting" of tho young hnd consisted in making them bettor educated than their For doing all this, ho claimed, tho city should honor and pension him. This speech naturally did not sorve to pacify his Judges, who noxt tried to frighton him with threats of death. Socrates answered them that whatever world lay beyond the gravo It could not bo much worse than Athena under Its present rule, and that tho change could not be otherwlso than a benefit. The Judges, In a rngo, condemned him to die. He was led back to prison. His friends thronged his coll. Ono of them secretly offorcd him a means of escape. Ho rofused, preferring to nbldo by tho court's ver dict. In tho prusenco of his disciples he drained n cup of hemlock poison. Xnntlppo ront the nlr with cries of grlof. Ho asked his friends to removo her from tho cell so that In his last momenta ho might enjoy In dying tho tranquillity sho had always denied him In life. Then, while tho poison crept through his veins, ho preached a powerful sermon on tho Immortality of tho soul, oxhortlng his followers to romombor his teachings and to profit by them. Ho ceased only whon denth at last overtook him In tho midst of his Hormon. Thus died Socrates, first and greatest of tho wholo mighty army of philosophers; tho man who, as a roward for lending his fellowmen from dark ness Into the light of knowlcdgo, wna officially murdered. Rut tho spark ho had lighted was destined to Illumine tho world for all time.

Hen Much Confusion. There 1ms been n phenomenal advance In land vnlties both In ami out of Hirkmnn during the past few weeks Somo of the prices of todiy are not at all compatible with the real values of tho proporty. The boom came with n mushroom growth, and there is always n clianco of a drop In n like manner. Thoro seems to be more of speculative than, business basis to some of tho deals wheh have boon recontly cousummntA.l. "The discovery of gold or oil would la idly have advanced tho local prices more rapidly. Farm property has taken a greater jU'iip than city estates. When farm land Jumps in price from $50 to S0 to $160 to $300 an acre. In the spaco of CO days, confusion naturally rolgns Instead of bettur Judgment. It Is well to remember, even though wo hnvo tho host land 0.1 earth, that (hero Is not of laud In Fulton county producing net revenue equal to 4 per cent on tho Investment when land roaches a price of $160, to say nothing of $2n0 to JS00. Such prices cannot last. The ovll of reaction and chaos are almost certain to follow. When capital once becomes shy, or competition sets up to turn It to other locations equally favorable to tho purpose' In view, then, nnd right then, vnluee will descend tho scale to n normi'l statu which is ever Intrinsic worth. Then- can be no other standard. It railroads, land companies, or what not, can afford to pay unreasonable prices for a limited amount of ground, that Is no Index to tho value to all lands embraced In tho vicinity. It is only speculation following In the wake of such deals, and this Is n very uncertain element. It Is a matter of common knowledge that about ten men break whero one mnkee when it comes to handling watered atock or Inflated value. There Is not enough to fnll back on. It Is the rixhtful prerogative of every man to use his own judgment as to hie action In such matters, but suffice to say that no man lives to himself.

Need Variety of Food If They Aro to Do Kept In Healthy Laying Condition. Poultry need variety of food It they aro to bo kept In n health laying condition. There aro too many (locks of poultry on our farms during tho winter that lack Animal nnd green food in fact, aro fed a Corn and oats aro handy, and It is "something to cat" for tho hens. Rut in order to produce cres nnd bo profitable, hons must havo somo proportion of anlmnl food. Docf scrap Is xcellent If it Is proierly prepared and properly fed. This is a preparation from scraps of boof that aro purified and, through a chomlcnl process, are preserved for future use. Care must be taken that tho scrap Is pure nnd of cood quality. If it Is salty, musty, lumpy, or has a foul odor, It is not fit to feed; in fact, will cause indigestion and bowel trouble when forced upon the bens. Whero the hopper system of feeding Is follow od, do not mix tho boof scrap with tho groin, but supply it to tho fowls In an apnrtmcnt by Itself. Fowls should first become accustomed to it by giving them a little at a time nt first. Overfeeding of this highly nutritious food will causo bowel trouble, says Wisconsin Farmer. After hens have becomo accustomed to It, ft supply can bo kept before them at all times, and that they will cat only what they need, provided they aro fed liberally of other foods and do not partake of the scrap to satisfy their hunger. If It Is found that fowls are eating too much of the noof scrap, take it away altogether and only feod it occasionally, giving it olthor In the .dash or feeding It dry, according to tho convenience of tho poultry kooper. Fowls should have only a small proportion of tho boef scrap about 15 or 20 pounds to each 100 pounds or dry grain, and even less than that will givo good results. Farmers who are keeping a small flock of hens for winter eggs say about fifty henB will do well to buy a couple of hundrod pounds of beef scrap, or any other prepared animal food, and see what a difference can be made In the production of eggs. A little of scrap, togother with a variety of vegetables and what other animal food that Is usually obtainable on a farm, will mnko eggs when tho price Is high. Do not wait until the last moment before laying in the proper food for winter eggs. one-Bide- In Memoriani. r. i On Jan. 2S, 1911, the Death Angel came to tho homo of Mr. and Mrs Claud llamby and made it sad by taking the darling littlo Thelina. age three years and four mouths.

Everyone Is familiar with tho Itlbla narratives respecting these demons some of them very startling. For Instance, our Lord's visit to the country of the Qadarenes, where ho was met by a crazed man. obsessed of evil spirits. Tho Master addressed, not tho man. but tho demons of whom a legion had taken possession. crazing1 their victim by their various and contradictory suggestions and commands.
