? Constructive Genius.
Henry M. Flagler, the man who put
Florida on the map, was a great con
structive genius, whose name is sur
rounded by none of the glamour and
glory that are associated with the de
structive geniuses of war, but which
will nevertheless be'held in memory by
future generations because of the
monuments he has left and the pleasure
he bas made possible to the millions
who will visit the Land of Flowers i n
the years to come.-Columbia Record.

Not Cast Down by Gloomy
Your humble scribe has been OD
the siok list or rather indisposed
for some time and the pross of the
farm has delayed this letter. We
are wanting rain to bring up the
crops. Here is it the 25th of May
and not half a stand of cotton up.
The outlook is a little gloomy, yet
with all the drought our farmers
appear to be hopeful and contented
about the outcome. The drought
bas damaged the oat crop at least
half of what it promised the first
of May. The acreage in corn is
much more than last year and from
what we can learn the farmers of
the south are realizing the necessity
of planting more corn and others
snough at least for home use. Some
of us have learned by experience
that we can make more clear mon
3y by sowing oats and following the
oats with peas. For last years ex
perience I planted on a one horse
Farm 8 acres to cotton on good land
md calculated getting 8 good bales
of cotton. The excessive rains in
lune and July made rapid growth.
Then the dry spell followed which
jaused the dropping ol? of the
Forms and thc result was that I got
i light bales of cotton. The fall of
1911 I sowed t? acres in oats in
jame field the same quality of land
iv i th less than half the fertilizers
that was used on the cotton. I made
over 200 bushels of oats. I followed
with peas and cut over two hund.ed
dollars' worth cf good pea vine hay,
iot only made more money on the
?x acres I had in oats but improved
the land and now I have on a por
tion of that six acres a fair crop of"
volunteer oats that are about as
?ood as the oats I sowed last fall.

Keeping Ever at lt.
Some men make poor farmers be
c?ese they are easily discouraged.
Other men make good farmers be
cause of the simple reaoon that thsy
never knew when they are beaten
always working, plowing, hoeing or
harvesting in season. These latter
kind of fellows have not time to
become discouraged nor sour upon
their calline in life. Industry breeds
happiness; loose application fosters
discouragement. A man may be
buffetted about by adverse fates, his
morrow looked upon to bring noth
ing good; and be he a farmer, me
chanic or a laborer, he can search
the universe and he will find only
one rule tu help bira. That rule says
that whatever his trade or calling
be, he must keep ever at it, because
