Dying to Order.
Dying to order Is one of the most
sacred customs or the American Indian.
Thirty years ago Standing EMc

The major aBked him what the ail
merit was and ho replied;
"Just nothing but thnt she hoard
the ghoBts calling and muBt go."
Homebody had told her, it turned
out, that she was sick, so sho had
"painted for death," and all her relatives
had gathered about to bemoan
her?and Incidentally divide her
property as noon as she was dead.
There was no use in the major's
arguing about it, so ho had the cofJln
In many cases those "painted for
death" are actually bullied into dying,
but Mrs. Standing Elk was stilt
too vinorous. Finally in desnair sho
carried the coffin into the house on
her own shoulders and several years
later the major Baw it still standing
on end in her house. Shelves had
been lifted into it, and it was doing

A CHAIR ?OF GOOD ROADS.
The directors of the Texas Sfata
Agricultural and Mechanical College
have determined to establish a good
roads chair in that institution and
their action is wise and commendable.

Farmers ought to be interested in the

ancestors plodded. Others are affrighted
hy the prospect of Increased
taxation or do not realize the worth
of a good road to a rural community.
The young man who wants to become
educated in farming is a progressive
individual and is not going
to be satisfied with running a farm
on the conventional pattern that was
handed down to him from his great

to do things on a different plan.

The Good Roads Question.
There are so many reasons foi
good roads In the South that the subject
could be discussed from now on.
The sole cause of bad roads, however,
is the indifference of Individuals.
Men meet and blow off a lot
of steam and resolute only to go
back home and wait for the other
fellow to start the work.
The only hope is in perfect organization
with a definite end in view?
an organization that has some financial
resource, and that is made up
pntirely of people free from politics.
So far as possible, the board or members
at the head of such an organization
should be made up of men
scattered in all directions, and as far
apart as possible in the territory to I
be Improved. This will prevent any j
clique or taction getting together
and scheming to improve certain sections
of the territory to be improved,
and incidentally securing options and ,
gobbling up real estate along the
line of improvement. This form of ;
graft is what brings about much of ;
the protest usually heard from small (
property owners who feel that they |
are already tax-ridden. And their \
complaint is not without just cause
The people who should take the
most interest in good roads are tho |
farmers. It means to them:
Highways over which to haul t.heir
crops to markets.
Smooth, good roads that will save
their time, and preserve their hardworked
and high-priced live stock.
Better facilities for sending their ,
children to school.
Enhancement of their farms'
values (for every man covets a wellkept.
profitable farm facing a good
In Davidson County, Tenn., in the
wonderful bluegrass section around
Nashville, the highways are dotted
with profitable dairy farms. Tho
great roads stretch for miles like
white sheets ("pikes" they are cnlled
up there), and in that section there
Is no cry of "back to the farm." The
greatest, iron dig seeing *.o ue 10 duuu
What a sight it is to visit that section
and notice the things you don't
see. No farms without live stock, no
idle fields, winter or summer, no unpainted
farm homes, no isolated
rural school houses, no big plantations
rented to ignorant whites and
negroes while the owner lives in a
Those folks live and die within
their own domain and hand their
lands down to the next generation.
They are content with tlieir lot and
live on the fat of the land. Their
homes face the beautiful pikes and
are surrounded by great groves and
rolling, well-kept lawns. They do
not call themselves farmers. They
simply own a place where they raise
everything they need. Fast horses
carry them to and from town miles
away. Automobiles carry them to
the theatres and bring them home at
Those folks are good roads cranks.
Invariably the man who takes the
least interest in good roads Is tho
lenow wr.o owns a vast aiuouui 01
property. Ho is too greedy to sell
that part of his land that he cannot
till himself, and yet he is not willing
to enter in a movoment that might
so improve his land that the assessor
will raise his tax.
One of the greatest evils in the
cotton belt to-day is the owning and
controlling of vast plantations, and
the renting of these lands by the
owners who sap a living from the
toil of poor white people and negroes
?"share croppers." The breaking
np of these plantations will make our
country the richest in the world.
Good roads will break these up.
The owners will groan under the ^ax
and they will bo compelled to relinquish
their holdings to people who
are farmers and who want to farm.
?A1 em phis Ne ws-Scimitar.
Farms and roads are generally
pretty close together?in fact a farm
is not a desirable possession unless
there is a passably good road leading
to it. Farmers ought to bo Interested

most localities they pay most of the
taxes that go to the maintenance of

More than four-fifths of the world's
supply of asbestos comes from tho
Province of Quebec, in what is known
as the serpentine belt, running
through the counties of Thetford,
Coleralne, Robertson and Rroughton,
about 100 miles from Montreal.
While the history of the Industry
dates back to 1877, it has only expanded
to its present proportions during
the last few years. The province

How to Kill Flics.
"Formaldehyde is a good fly killer
and can be used with splendid re- j
i suits," said A. P. Pannill, assistnnt
"We tried it last year and found It I
very effective. Put two teaspoonfuis
of formaldehyde in a plate or
saucer," said Mr. Pannill, and place
tho vessel in a light place and the
(lies will go to it. After drinking
the poison they will fly away and
Boon fall dead. While the flies will
drink the formaldehyde if it is plac!
ed in any part of the fooiu, the result
will be better if the vessel containing
the stuff is placed where it
hi light, because the light attracts
i the flies and for that reason many
more will bo put out of existenco j
than if the receptacle is kept in a
I dark place. To place the saucer or
plate in or near a window early in
the morning will get tho reBt results."
