Speaking of grab bags, the writer
vividly recalls, in childhood days,
an occasion at old Long Cane school
house, where the membeis of Ste
vens creek church had a Sunday
school sale and to her the large
fJowerel grab bag was the chief in
terest, having hoarded for a week
a nickel for a grab. When the gol
den moment arrived and the myste
rious package unwrapped, there
lay an ugly cob pipe. She wept in
childish disappointment but soon
ber tears were dried. The present
editor of The Advertiser had taken
a grab and was equally surprised
with a doll. This was set up as a
target with the aid of two other
cousins, with the view of breaking
its head. Seeing his little cousin's
grief, he secured his doll and say
ing that he had wanted more th in
anything else, that cob pipe, the
exchange was happily made.

How to Tell When Soils Need
How are we to know, or how can
we tell whether any given soil re
quires li mi i m?
The methods of testing soils for
acidity which is in most common
use is known as the litmus test. It
is none too reliable, and yet, if made
with reasonable care, it will not
often mislead. In ordinary field
tests a ball of' damp soil is broken,
a piece of blue litmus paper placed
between the portions and these
pressed together again for a few
minutes A more accurate test may
be made by placing a strip of blue
litmus paper in the bottom of a
glass tumbler and over this putting
a round piece ol' white blotting pa
per cut such a size as to completely
cover the bottom ol'the glass. Then
put in a small quantity of the soil
to be te&ted and add enough water
to thoroughly wet the soil and cov
er the glass with a saucer. Prepare
another glass the same way, but
put i>o soil in it, merely adding wa
ter to the blottiugand litmus paper.
; Allow both to stand for an hour or
two and then examine through the
bottom of the glasses. If the blue
litmus paper still remains blue iu
the glass in which no soil was put,
but turns red iu the one where the
soil is, the evidence is tnat soil is
sour or acid. If, on the other hand,
the litmus paper remains blue in
the glasses it is pretty certain the
soil is not acid or sour. If the
litmus paper turns red in the glaEs
in which lhere is no soil then the
paper or water contains some acid
and the test should be made again
j with both glasses, but with different
paper and water.
A test for a deficiency of "lime,"
rather than a test for acid, is de
scribed as follows by Van Slyke:
"Put about a tablespoonful of soil
into a glass, or cup half full of wa
ter, to which is added a teaspoonful
or two of strong ammonia thal has
been diluted with four or five times
as much water. After standing
several hours, the liquid becomes
dark brown or black if acid com
pounds are present in the soil."
The kind of plants growing on a
soil, or the way certain plants grow,
may be a good indicatif ol au
abundance of "lime" on the one
hand or a sour soil on the olher,
although this io not always to be
depended upon. When alfalfa,
melilotus, and red clover grow well
on a soil it is a pretty good indica
tion that the soil is not sour, bul
contains a pretty lair amount of
calcium carbonate. Un the other
band, when "sour grass'' or sorrel
grows on land it is some indication,
but not a positive one, thai the soil
is sour.-Progressive Farmer.
"Last spring 1 sowed some aspara?

I never transplant asparagus roots
as is commonly done. I sow the

When James Ox. Blaine was a

defend a trainp accused of stealing
a watch. Convinced of the tramp's
innocence, Mr. Blaine pleaded with
such convincing energy and elo

even the tramp wept, and the jury
almost immediately returned ihe
verdict "Not guilty."
Then the tramp drew himself up

AIRY SPRING WEARABLES
It is just as important for you to study the character of a store as it is for
you to study the character of an individual. The honesty, truthfulness and
reliability of a store's methods should be your purchasing guide first ; then when
you have ascertained the store that measures up to the standard in these respects
shop them over thoroughly and let merchandise merit win. Did you ever stop
to think that when you made a purchase of a shop with a shady reputation you
are aiding and abetting the continuance of an evil that thousands of dollars are
spent annually in an effort to protect you ?against? That you reflect on your
own character when you visit a shop of this kind, knowing their reputation.
We offer the following articles in competition to all those who believe in
truth in advertising and clear cut anti-sweat shop merchandise, and it's up to
you from a moral and physical sanitary standpoint to patronize the store of char
acter, truthfulness and reliability. Now if that's buggy, why we're a little red
wheeled one, and if it is not, and we are just daffy, why we want to be the prize

become such that he will not need a mower or binder, we will accept a counter

placing his order now.
