TO BENEFIT THE SOUTH.
In a recent issue the Jacksonville.
Fla.. Enterprise, has this to say:
The war with Spain promises to
have at least one good effect?it
has frightened Southern farmers
Into planting food crops, instead of
all cotton crops, as heretofore. Re?
ports from every section of the
South indicate that the acreage of
corn, oat.s, wheat, potatoes, etc.,
is larger than was ever known be?
fore, while more attention Is being
paid to raising caul.- and hogs, in
many sections, it is said, the farm?
ers have actually plowed up a
portion of th.ir cotton crop and
put in corn instead
This is almost too good to be true.
The farmers of the South should have
learned this lesson ten years ago w ith?
out waiting for a foreign war to im?
press upon their minds the necessity
for farming on a common sense plan.
To one unitiated in farming it would
seem that the farmer who rinds it ne?
cessary to buy food for either his fam?
ily or his live slock is a very poor
sort of an agriculturalist, and yet
there are thousands of farmers, in the
South especially, who are annually
pinning their faith to some particu?
lar crop, because in the long ago it
was protltabie. It is surprising that
experience, has never taught the tillers
of the soil that their salvation lies not
in an immense production of some
money crop, which frequently cost as
much as it sells for in the markets of
today, but In a diversified crop, milk?
ing his own necessities his first
thought, after which it is impossible to
make him the slave of markets and of
speculators who come in for the lion's
share of the prolit on farm products.
If the war teaches the South to give
up a blind and undivided adherence
to cotton it will not only accomplish
' the freedom of the Cubans, but will
liberate many a tiller of the soil who
has tor many years worked for less
than board and clothes.
The proposition to appoint all army
officer above the grade of colonel with?
out reference to the seniority rule
should be nipped in the bud. Many of
the "political pull" appointments al?
ready made threaten to involve the
administration in a scandal of no small
magnitude. Every consideration which
makes it expedient for the spoilsman
to be kept out of the civil service of
the government applies with double
force in regard to the military serveice
of the country. The United Stales has
had some costly experiences In taking
its politics and wars "mixed." it
should learn the lessons of experience
and make merit and faithful service
the only passoprts to high rank in the
United States army.
While the story to the effect that
Admiral Dewey defied the German
consul and German cruisers at Manila
may be an imaginative bit of writing
on the part of some enterprising cor?
respondent, the reply attributed to tin
commander of the'American squadron
sounds rather natural. Whatever may
be said of the American sailor, it goes
' ?without saying that he cannot be bluf?

"I Never Thought
a Gas Stove Could
Be Stich a Comfort,"
Said a -th street
lady to us a few days ago, and
one by one the ladies are Unding
out that they are not only a very
great comfort, but that the well
appointed gas range is the prop?
er appliance to have in the
kitchen. No need then of a
poor fire; you strike the match
and we furnish the gas to give
you just the kind of lire you
need; quick, or slow as you
please. We can bake, broil,
stew, In fact do anything that
any stove can do; and oh, yes,
give you all the hot water you
want; connect your pipes under
the city pressure, and we give
you hot water In any part of the
house. Gas fuel costs $1.00 per
thousand feet. This will give
gas cooking for $2.50 to $3.00 per
month. This Is cheaper than
coal or wood. Just think it
over and you will see. Ask
your friends who use gas stoves
and you will be surprised at the
saving. Call at the ofllce and
see the Inducements we have to
offer you. If you can't call
send card or call 'Phone 24.
