BOY WORTH 960 A MINUTE.
▲ South Carolina boy is advertised
as having been worth $60 a minute
to his state. He was just a plain
country boy, bat he had progressive
ideas and studied batter crop methods;
under his scientific--culture he pro-
duced 228 bushels of com on one
acre, setting a new world’s record for
com production. His plans were fol-
lowed by the people of South Caro-
lina, with the net result that the aver-
age com crop was increased from 17,-,
000,600 to 50,000,000 bushels. Expert in
figures makes the calculation that the
difference between 17 and 50 millions
bushels of com is worth even $60 a
minute to the people of South Caro-
lad yet, some people insist that
there “haint nothin’ to there here hifi-
luting ideas about modern farming.”
Many Hopkins county farmers have
raised enough feed to last them two
years, this year, and some of them say
they are going to keep it, as they
might need it. Our people had a heart
scald of buying imported, high-priced
feed last spring, and it will be many
years before they will forget the les-
son they have learned.
Fewer acres and better and more
scientific cultivation is the solution of
the Southern farmers’ financial trou-
Cotton sold for 12 l-2c Tuesday and
below 12c yesterday. You can’t tell
WHAT the cotton market is going to
do. It may be 13c within a week, and
then it may be back to 9c. However,
we look for the price to hang around
the 12c mark, since it has been seem-
ingly steadying around that basis.
William Jennings Bryan called on
President Woodrow Wilson yesterday.
Of course quite a number who have
never liked Mr. Bryan over-much will
be disappointed to learn that these two
gentlemen are yet the best of friend?
and later on they will be exceedingly
sorry to learn that Mr. Bryan is not
politically dead and will again be dis-
appointed when he supports Mr. Wil-
son for a second term but their sad-
ness will be overcome and overshadow-
ed by me great Joy of a lot of other
people, who have the good of the coun-
try at heart and who give Mr. Bryan
credit for being an honest, able, cour-
ageous and, above all, a clean man,
who has the good of the world at heart.
Incidentally, it is stated that Mr. Bryan
will visit Texas in tho near future.—
A great many men who hate Mr.
Bryan are much displeased because
there has been no break between Mr.
Bryan and the president. Many of
those who dislike Bryan also dislike
Wilson and they ,had hoped that a
breach between tho two would destroy
both. They are disappointed that the
breach has not come.—Bonham News.
THE HAPPY HOUR.
The busy day is over,
The household work is done;
The cares that fret the morning
Have faded with the sun,
And in the tender twilight
I sit in happy rest
With my precious rosy baby
Asleep upon by breast.
While lids with silken fingers
Shut but the wanting light;
A little hand close folded
Holds mama’s fingers tight.
And in their soft white wrappings
At last in perfect rest,
Two dainty feet are cuddled
Like birdies in > nest. >»i;*
All hopes and love unworthy
Fade out at this sweet hour;
All pure and holy longings
Renew their holy power,
For Christ, who in tne Virgin
Our motherhood has blest,
Is nearer to every woman
With a baby upon her chest .
—Mary Francis Butts.
DISMISSED FOR GOOD REASONS.
A motion for the dismissal of a
case against King Richman for as-
sault to murder was made by the
district attorney. The reason for this
was a perfectly good one, as stated
by the district attorney, and that was
that Richman had recently been
burned to death by the citizens of
Sulphur Springs for having killed
a deputy sheriff who was attempting
to arrest him on the charge which
he now asked the court to dismiss.—

WHAT A $4 HAT COSTS IN TIPS.
Let us say that a hat costs $4.
When a diner enters a cafe he finds it
convenient to check his hat, reminded
of the convenience by gilt lettered
signs reminding him that the manage-
ment will in no wise hold itself res-
ponsible for unchecked articles. When
he again receives his hat the signs of
the outstretched palm reminds him
that there is a coin known as one
dime in circulation. Suppose he is
one of those unfortunates who must
needs dine regularly in places where
the tip hunter can do his worst. At
luncheon, 10c; at dinner, another
dime. His hat is costing him 20c
daily. At the end of tha month that
$4 hat has cost him $6 in fees. Take
a trained tip extractor ani he will
get that dime ten chances in ten. If
he doesn’t he will not -old his job.—

BOY WORTH $60 A MINUTE TO HIS
The above startling headline to an
article in the September number of
the American Magazine caused many
business men to stare—and most
farmers to grunt dissent. But when
they read the facts, the business men
saw the point and resolved more and
more to assist farmers to get profit-
able returns from their crops. And
many farmers resolved to profit by
the lessons these actual facts taught.
But, of course, the majority of grown-
up farmers grunted, said it was luck,
or new fangled book-farming bosh—
and returned to continue the old slave-
grinding act of their usual lives. But
the father of Jerry Moore ot South
Carolina, the “Boy Worth $60 a Min-
ute to His State” was compelled to
quit grunting and join the energetic
intelligent, successful boy in making
farming pay by brain work instead
qf continuing to not pay by only
muscle work. The story of how an-
other boy won out is told in the
American as follows:
‘Dr. Bradford Knapp, who succeed-
ed his late father as head of the farm
demonstration service, tells another
story of a reluctant parent: A freck-
led-fgced South Carolir.an of tho
younger generation type, teased for
an acre to emulate Jerry Moore. But
the father thought there was some
trick back of Jerry’s achievements. He
at last consented to allow the hoy to
grub an acre near the forest, pull
the stumps, remove the stones and to
work it. The boy did it. Then the
father said he’d take that acre himself,
and if the boy was really in earnest he*
could grub another one. Then he was
willing to compete with him, old ways
against new ways of the boy and the
United States government . This was
‘When the crop was harvested, the
boy’s measured eighty bushels, and the
old man’s (adjoining) measured only
eight! ‘Every since then,’ says Dr.
Knapp, ‘the old man has been going
to farmers’ institutes with the boy,
sitting on the front seat and saying,
'Look what me and John went and
done!’ But he is growing more corn,
and a boy is showing him how.”
Then the fact of the 1,200 Ohio boys
who increased the corn crop of that
State by intelligent methods in 1914
(last year) more than $20,000,000
worth, stands as a stone wall against
which old-fogy farming will butt its
brains out in vain—for the State of
Ohio, under the leadership of the pres-
ident of the Ohio agricultural commis-
sion. Hon. A. P. Sandies took those
1,200 boys to Washirgton, to New
York, and to the Panama exposition in
San Francisco as a small return for
the immense good they had done their
State and as an appreciation of the
vast and permanent wealth they had
All of this immense addition to the
value of agriculture in the way of
profits to producers on eacn acre with-
out adding to either the labor or the
cost, came through the work of the
late Dr. Seaman A. Knapp of the Unit-
ed States agricultural department. He
found in Mississippi the germ of the
wonderful American farm boy.
Jerry Moore, the South Carolina
boy—“Worth $60 a Minute to His
State”—made over 288 bushels of corn
per acre in 1911. Since then in three
years. South Carolina's com crop has
increased from 17,000,000 to more than
50,000,000. And all the Southern
States have made a like increase. All
because of Jerry Moore’s great work—
and victory over his father’s grunting
skepticism and opposition.
Just now, we want you to get ac-
quainted with Jerry Moore. For he
is becoming so well known in the
farm-homes of this country that now,

A TYPICAL FOOL
A fool there was who went to war
(As fools are wont to do),
To kill some one he never saw,
For gaisers and kings whose will is
To freeze and starve and sleep on
(As fools are wont to do).
Oh! the lives we take and the sorrow
we make, \
And the orphans’ cry in the land,
Charge up to the devils who started
We hope they will have to account for
And be made to understand.
A fool there was and his strength he
(As fools are wont to do),
He shot to kill with good intent
(He didn’t know what the war-fare
But rules must follow their selfish
'(As rulers are wont to doi.
Oh! the blood we spilled and the men
Were just what the rulers planned
We did the killing but never knew
And now we know we never knew
(And did not understand).
The fool was cut through his foolish
(As fools are wont to be).
When he found the rulers cast him
With an iron cross to swell his pride.
So part of him lived but most of him
(As fools are wont to do).
And it isn’t the cross rmd it isn’t the
That stings like a white hot brand,
‘Tis coming to know that he acted the
And did not understand.

FIRING OF GUNS AND RAINFALL.
The present war brings small com-
fort to those who assert that the fir-
ing of guns produces rain. A recent
article in the London Times points
out that although gunfiring at the
front was probably most violent in
the earlier days of the war, the rain-
fall in August, September and October
was much below the average. There
was no prolonged period of unsettled
weather until November and Decem-
ber, when they are naturally , expect-
ed. Moreover, a correspondent of
Symons’ Meteorological Magazine
shows that at Shoeburyness. where at
certain times of the year big guns are
firing almost daily, the average an-
nual rainfall is less than in any other
part of the United Kingdom.—Ex.
