The iniquities ol the father may
sometimes be visited upon his de
scendants, even to the third or
. fourth generation, but lhere is a
degree of compensation in the fact
that the good deeds of an ancestor
come as blessings upon the heads
of those who follow in the line of
descent. Half a century ago a
kind-hearted woman in Pennsyl
vania took charge of the five chil
dren of a man who was executed
for-the murder of his wife. She
went co her final reward years ago,
but one of the children whom she
befriended in the purest charity,
died recently and left the woman's
grandchild a pleasant fortune of
$200,000. When gratitude survives

How to Kill Hawks.
As this is the season when hawks
most do worry the housewife, we
give the following as a sovereign
remedy for killing these bipeds.
Take some crystalized strychnine,
pulverize it, then make it into a
paste with some honey or syrup,
and put it on the back of the heads
of a brood of chickens and let
them go out where the hawks can
catch them. You will lose some
chickens, but for every chicken
you lose you will kill a hawk. The
mixture should be blacked with a
little soot or something else to
keep the chickens from picking it
off the heads of one another. It
should be applied about once a week
and put down under the feathers.
A piece about twice the size of a
pin head is larg* enough.

1 New Departure.
Mr. John C. Morgan, living near
Parksviile, and one of the best
'armers in the country, proposes to
nake a new departure this year in
'anning. He intends to plant his
and in alternate rows of cotton
md speckled peas. He thinks
ie'11 make nearly as much cotton
:his way, and have the peas addi
tional, and gain much in improv
ing his land with the humus and
immonia furnished by the pease.

i like experience last year and was
oighly pleased with the result.

Mr. G. G. Lewis, whose injuries
in the railroad accident of some
?veeks since, which we made men
tion of last week, is still unable to
;et about much, although he does
so to a limited extent upon his
?rutches. We are not in favor of
nulctiug railroads in extortionate
iamages on any and all occasions
ind under any pretext, but in this
iccident, from all we can hear, the
railroad authorities are totally in
excusable, and the collision was
reckless, simply a piece of gross
negligence, if not actual defiance
of all proper care and foresight to
prevent damage and danger to the
iife and limbs of passengers.
A. Chance for Somebody.
The fruit crop promises to-be so
ibundant that we think some en
terprising citizen ought to estab
lish a cannery. Upon this subject
;he Piedmont Headlight says : "It
is surprising how small a capital
ie required to start a cannery. We
oave investigated the matter, and
ind. that a plant having a daily
;apacity of 2,000 cans of three
pounds each will not cost for its
mtire equipment more than $100,
)xclusive of the building and the
orick used for the chimneys and to
jet the kettles. The equipment
cor a 4,000 canning factory can be
oad for $200, not including bricks
or building. Three hundred dol
lars will buy the equipment for a
factory turning out daily 10,000
ians of three pounds each. The
iverage labor cost in a 4,000 can
factory is about $25 per day.
