firmly at right angles as shown in
Fig. 1, also boring a small bole
through the centre of same. Then

Novel Toy For Children.
Children who have been watching
the circus parade this season with
bulging eyes and have seen the lions
and tigers pacing their cages may
themselves own a cage with a restless
lion in it if their parents are so fortu
nately situated as to be able to buy
them one. A Michigan man has de
si-ned a toy which fills the bill. It
consists of a little wagon, modeled
faithfully after the usual circus cage,
inside which is an oval track. On
this track is mounted a lion or some
other one of the animals that Colonel
Roosevelt is busily engaged in shoot
ing. Pulleys running under the body
of the wagon connect with the wheels,
and as the child draws the wagon
around the nursery floor the animal
circles the track inside the cage for
all the world like one of the restless
rc
man-eaters in the circus p)arade. It
now remains for the Michigan genius
to so improve on his invention that
Leo will give forth blood-curdling
roars as he stalks about.-Washing

The dust laying on Erglish roads
pro:nises soon to be a problem of the

roads in Englan:I: yar there
were 200 milcs: tir re are n::: -5;P
miles, and in two years you may e:
pect 20,000 miles. On th-se roads
the dust problem is'absolutely killed.
Until recentl: what tarred roads
England had wt:re nearly all hrt
lengths. Now long stretchcs have
been completed, such as from Coven
try to London and from London to
Herne Bay. In many counties. nota
bly Hertfordshire. Middlesex and
Kent, the advance has been rapid.
To-day England leads the world in
road improvement. France comes
next. Five years ago the "routes na
tionales" in France were, as a whole,
superior to English roads as a whole,
although not equal to Englani's best.
To-day England is enormou3ly ahead
even of France. and the work done in
other countries is comparatively
small.
Tar fresh from the gas works is to
tally unsuitable for using on the
roads. It contains a proportion of
soluble matter which washes out and
which. if it runs into streams, may
kill fish and do other damage. The
ordinary tar splashes and injures
dresses, etc. These facts have caused
considerable naturalprejudice against
tar preparations among many land
owners and country residents. Meth
ods had to be found of removing the
soluble matter without going to the
other extreme and making the coat
ing brittle. There are now various
ways of doing this.
The Roads Improvement Associa
tion's experiments showed that roads
can be made dustless by applying one
gallon of tar to every four superfi
cial yards, costing about $200 a mile
for an average road. It was found
that satisfactory results could only
be had by giving much heavier dress
ings than were formerly considered
necessary.
This tar dressing so adds to the
wear-resisting qualities of the high
way that so far as can be now seen it
will more than repay its cost by the
saving it effects in road mantenance.
But it is not possible to speak finally
on this point until the tarred roads
have been laid down for a longer pe
riod.-Chicago Tribune.
Get Expert Advice.
One or two bits of counsel in re
gard to good roads building cannot
be too often emphasized. In the first
place, never proceed without expert
advice. In some sections of the South
the movement for better highways
has been set back a full generation
because of ignorance and consequent
,wastefulness in the use of road funds.
Get your State Highway Commission
er, your State Geologist, or some offi
cial of your State Department of Agri
culture, to advise you as to what sort
of road improvement policy you
should advocate. Many counties are
too poor to build macadam roads as
yet, especially where stone for macad
amizing must be brought a great dis
tance. In such places the merits -and
applicability of the sand-clay system
should be considered. It is much less
expensive than macadam. and in hun
dreds of counties in the South is the
best system that can be adopted. And
on all clay roads, the split-log drag
should be regularly used.-Prores
sive Farmer.
A Good Roads Dividend.
The county of Sullivan, Tennessee,
Is building turnpikes. A dispatch
from Bristol tells of the sale of a
farm in Sullivan County for upward
of $14,000. Before the building of
turnpikes the farm would have sold
at not more than half that amount.
The place was put up at auction and
sold to the highest bidder. There is
nothing to account for the increase in
value, aside from the fact that Sulli
van County now has good roads where
formerly it had bad roads.--Louis.

Baltimore's Horse Heaven.
Baltimore is about to open its rest
farm or fresh-air home for horses tin
der the management of the Animal
Refuge Association. It is a charit
able enterprise, as only the horses of
poor cabmen and hucksters, who are
unable to care for their animals when
they become ill, will be received at
the farm. These men are forced to
let their horses suffer, and oftentimes
to sell them when they are unfit for
work. When the horse of a poor
owner becomes ill now he has only to
notify the Animal Refuge Association,
and for $2 a month his horse will be
taken to the farm, where it can revel
in clover and forget the hot and dusty
streets and the rough cobblestones
until it is well.-New York Tribune.

'Arlington. N.. J.-M,%rs. Mary Pattl

the ideal village in a talk before the

"Let us take at imaginary Jour

sweep of greensward shaded with
trees and cut with winding roads, a
few hills and a cool, picturesque val

with sewerage and disease-carrying

refuse usually deposited along such
banks. Let there ha.cleinstead
grass, flowers and birds.
"On o e of these hills near by we
find a roomy sehoolhouse, than which
nothini better Is known, where the
children are bein educated In the
real things of life, in common sense,
and in industrial and organic matters,
with no danger of forced mentality.
Here we find usefulness with beauty
of method; as a result, horse or
coarse play and disrespect are un
known; individual and careful think
ing are encouraged, and appreciation
Is developed, with charm of manner
and the cultivation of the hec.lthiest
bodies.

an airy and well built market, where
only the best and purest foods can be
bought. not necessarily luxuries, hut

"His Brother's Keeper." I
By HOLMAN DAY.
On Little Spruce Island on the
Maine coast I feund three old men,
brothers-williai, Daniel and Nehe
miah Shanks. They have lived there
all their lives in a iumble-down little
shelter. They are melancholy old
men. They are contentcd, but the
rea has b-ought to them a strange
brooding, wistful solemnity. William
and Daniel never married. Nehemiah
has had a poor little romance that
broke his heart. He went home with
his confession of wrong-doin.
-*Then you must look out for the
boys after I'm dead," said his father,
forgiving him. Nehemiah has spent
his life "looking out for the boys,"
who are now infirm old men. 'It is
my duty in return for my father's
pardon of my wrong-doing," he told
me, "and I have tried to do my best.
I am the youngest, and I am best able
to work."
For more than twenty years Will
iam has never come out of the hut
into the sunshine. He told me that
he feared the sun might heat his
brains and interfere with his life
work, which is the composition of
poetry.
While William idleE, Nehemiah
tills the little garden, catches fish,
digs clams and cooks. He is cheer
fully the burden-bsarer, and wi.th
some pride says that he is the head
of the family; for when his father
imposed the trust on him he did so
with a ceremony truly patriarchal;
he gave into Nehemiah's hands the
staff on which he had leaned for many
years, saying that it should be the
badge of Nehemiah's authority. Nehe
miah described the scene to me, tears
trickling down his wrinkled cheeks.
Memory was only a partial spur to
this grief.
Daniel, after more than sixty years
of obedience, had' become a most
amazing rebel. He had declared that
another flood had been prophesied to
him in a vision, and that he had been
ordered to build an ark on Little
Spruce. Little Spruce is owned by a
lady in Boston, as part of an exten
sive holding of Islands. The Shanks
brothers have been permitted to re
main as squatters on condition that
they do not disturb the standing tim
ber. Nehemiah gave this promise to
the manager of the estate.
Daniel, though threescore and ten;
took the family axe, hand-saw, and
hammer and proceeded to his labors
on his ark. Nehemiah stood in front
of the lordly spruce that Daniel was
about to attack with the axe, and in
the name of the Shanks family for
bade him to chop. Daniel had the
zeal of monomania and insisted. Then
Nehemiah brandished the family staff
and threatened to chastise the disobe
dient son of their, father. Daniel, in
a frenzy, made at his brother with
the axe, routed him, captured .the
staff, chopped it up, and then began
on the tree. He laid waste quite a
section of woodland before Neheiaih
got word to the agent. Then in high
dudgeon Daniel built a shack of his
own. He lives In it and, refuses to
speak to his brothers.
"I still hope to be able to meet fa
ther at the door of heaven and tell
him that I kept the Shanks family
together and kept it decent, as he
would have liked to have me keep it,"'
said Nehemiah, sadly. "Daniel was
always hard to manage; father found
him so. But I think he will come
back to his home, for I-'am .the only
one in the family who can cook things
as mother used to cook them."-Har.
per's Magazine.
Pope Pius and the Guards.
It would seem to be the ambition of
Pope Pius X. to pass down to pos
terity as..the Reformer. He has al
ready instituted several notable ro
forms, in the total reorganization of
the financial departments of the Vat
ican, in the ecclesiastical congrega
tions, in taxes, and in the ceremonial
music. At present the Pope Is con
templating a number of important
changes within the walls of the Vat
ican with a view to reducing need
less expenditures. He has expressed
the opinion that there are far too
many idle people about the premises
-officials who are costly, but whose
offices are pure sinecures. The
guards, for instance, are practically
valueless. The Guards of Nobles, the
Swiss Guards, the Palatine Guards,
the Gendarmerie-all alike necessi
tate a vast expenditure for which
little is obtained in return. If his
holiness acted In accordance with his
real wishes, he would abolish all
these, but consideration of historic
interest will probably induce him
to confine himself to a mere reduc
tion in numbers.-Rome Correspond'
ence of the London Globe.
Facts About Gravesend.
Gravesend, now smarting under
her treatment by the admiralty in re
lation to the disposition of the war
ships in the coming Thames review,
has been always more or less a spoiled
child of fortune. As the great out
post of London her privileges in the
matter of customs and pilotage have
been considerable. When the town
was burnt and plundered by the
French and Spaniards in the reign of
Richard II. the king compensated the
citizens by giving them the exclusive
right to carry passengers to London
by water at 2d. a head (., 4s. per
boat). Twopence, of course, was no
mean sum in those days. Gravesend
has also the distinction, among Eng
lish towns, of having been the first to
organize a river steamboat service to
London. This she did as long ago as
1829. The gloomy name she bears
loses its sombreness when we remem
ber that it Is derived from the Saxon
"gerefa," and indicates the limits of
the jurisdiction of a port-reeve. In
Domesday Book she is recognizable
under the name of Gravesham.-Lon

PALETTO STATE NE!S
COlumbia, S. C.-A statement I,
sued from the office of Commissione
Watson shows the average yield pe
acre of the oat crop in South Car(
lina this year to be twenty-one bust
els per acre. The yield shows a;
increase of one bushel per acre ove
last year. The average yield for te
years has been 16.2 bushils per acr,
It is shown in the report that tb
average yield for South Carolina
greater than any other of the souti
ern states.
The number of bushels producE
this year is 4,431,000. The numb.
last year was only 4,020,000.
On October 1 the average price e
bushel was seventy-four cents, an
one cent less in September.
This is a most excellent showin
when compared with the prices in th:
west, oats in Illinois bringing only 27
cents per bushel and 34 cents -

The following comparative stat
ment of average yields per acre V

very interesting:
South Carolina 21, Texas 2.3 bushe
less, Mississippi 5 bushels less, Gec
gia 2 bushels less, Florida 4 bushes
less, North Carolina, 4.5 bushels lei
Kentucky about same, Alabama 4
bushels less, Tennessee 1 bushel lei
Virginia 2 bushels less. The quali:
of the oats has been increased to
great extent.
Spartanburg, S. C.-Many farme
in Spartanburg county have be@
caught short because they contract%
with buyers and mills to furnish a ce

price, less than 13 cents. Cotton -h:
advanced within the last few day
and many farmers are now forced
buy as much as thirty bales to
their contract, paying as much
13.50 for the staple. At a meeting
the County Farmers' Union, held hel
this feature of the cotton busnls
was discussed, and the practice
farmers of selling their crops befor
gathered was decried, for it is a form
of speculation. It was said it 'is a

Columbia, S. C.-According to
preliminary statement Issued froip-s
office of Commissioner Watson,
consumption of cotton 'by the m.
of the state this year will be 45,
bales less than last year. The repor
based on reports already received d
ing the year from eighty-three ml
and the reports of the other at
as given in the handbook for 15
The consuming of a less number
bales this year is caused by the f.
that most of the mills are changi
or have already changed, from
coarse grade to a finer grade mat -
ally Increases the value of the pra
act. It does npt mean that the
has been a curtailment in productic --
but rather Increased value of prodt
tion; a product which can .be plac.*
directly from the mills on the sout.
en markets.
Only about fifteen mills, and half
their production, turn out expoa
goods, according to the statement.
Up until a few years ago all -a
the mill manufactured a coarse gra.
of cloth. Since 1907 there has be
a gradual change from the coarse -
the finer goods, all of which Is beL
