D. A. R. Meeting.
The Daughters of the American
Revolution celebrated the Thanks
giving month with a lovely meeting
at the home of Mrs. N. G. Evans.
The meeting was well attended, and
each member responded with a
Thanksgiving fsentiment-all splen
did selections. The vice-regent,BMr8.
J. H. Cantelou, presided, and the
Lord's Prayer was offered by all the
members in concert.
The historical programme con
sisted of a historic paper on the
Sioux and Fox Indians by Mrs.
Jas. R. Cantelou, and two very
beautiful folkfore stories were given
by Miss Annie Clisby, who has so
generously contributed by her tal- i

The Surplus be Large.
When we remember that our pop
ulation has had a marvelous growth
in recent years and that manufac
turing and transportation have a
large number of farra laborers we
need not wonder that the war has
contributed its intiuence so soon for
higher prices of foods.
Our urban population has grown
rapidly and at thc expense of rural
According to statistics about
two-thirds of our people lived in
the country 50 years ago and one
third in cities and towns. Now
there are almost two-thirds of the
people in cities and towns and but
about-one-third on farms producing
food for the people. This means
that whereas one family on the
farm half century ago produced a
very small surplus now one family
must produce surplus sufficient to
feed two families in cities and
towns. It is said the farmer's obli
gation now is nearly four times
what it was 50 years ago.
How will it be with farmers at
the close of the war? No one can
answer that question for no one
knows when the war will end or the
condition of the people when peace
is made. But it does not seem that
the demand for food will be much
less at least for many years after
peace is declared. One thing we
should remember, that is farmers
now have the greatest opportunity
of any other people. Farm and
Ranch believes they will make good
use of their opportunities. While
they may have temptations to re
taliate for the manner in which
speculators and unfair middlemen
have treated them Farm and Ranch
expects that farmers will be just,
honorable and fair as the majority
of them have always been.-Farm

Billy Sunday on Home Life.
In Atlanta, Sunday morning, Billy
Sunda} preached on ''The Home"
and paid his respects to the various
members of the family from the
busy fathers and fashionable idle
mothers to the wine drinking young
women and disobedient boys. His
remarks on the modern neglect of
home life are sadly true, and worth
We are neglecting the home
life today for the club, for the
lodge, for the literary, for so
ciety, and a thousand one thinprs,
sir. Fit yourself to be the in
tellectual companion of your
children. The learning at the
school and college will soon
fade from their minds, but what
they learn at your knee will
stick after they have to hobble
on the crutches cf decrepitude.
There are mighty few things
more important than conver
sation. Oh! the good you can
do with your tongues or the evil
and pain you can give. A lov
ing conversation is a great
panacea. Many homes have
none. No affectionate greeting
when they return from school
and the store, no regretful good
bye when they go away, no fire
side chatter. M^als are eaten
in silence and the old man never
speaks unless he grunts for
somebody to pass him the grub
and you'd think you were in a
deaf and dumb asylum.
The perpetual scolding, don't,
don't, DON'T. A child should
never be told that they were to
be seen and not heard. Of all
sentences that crawled out of
hell, I think that is the rotten
est. Forget it!
This picture drawn by the evangel
ist is true of many homes, which are
little more than sleeping and eating
houses for members of the family.
Meals are eaten in a hurry to "catch
the car" and get back to work for
some, and to fill engagements for
others, and little time is given to
pleasant conversation. As a result,
the art of conversation is being lost
in large measure, and the happiness
of home life is sacrificed in the daily
grind of earning a living, or the
quest of pleasure everywhere else
but at the family fireside.

WIDELY KNOWN BUSINESS MAX
TELLS STORY THAT WILL
ENC O U R AG K II D S I) REDS.
In the list of the men of New
York who have done big things is
that name of Morris Garlick. This
man is Secretary of the Down
Town Taxpayers' Association of
Brooklyn, representing $10,000,000
in realty holding* aloi e in the
heart of the great business district.
He was largely responsible for
Brooklyn's noted Flatbush exten
sion, the great ^traffic artery from
the new Manhattan Bridge. He is
bead of M. Garlick & Company of
181 Gold Street.
Prominent in the real uplift work
of the world's greatest city, he hold3
the deep respect of thousands with
whom he comes in contact in busi
ness, political, church and fraternal
affairs. Since boyhood, and for 45
years, he has labored. He is now
57 years old. It is only natural
that, with all his activities, the
strain should begin to tell.
"Maybe I have overworked,"
said Mr. Garlick, "but, at any rate,
I began to suffer from broken rest,
loss of appetite, failure to assimilate
the nourishment I needed, and nerv
ousness," he explained. ' It is
what the average man calls all run
down,' and there are a lot of us in
every city. I felt as if I needed
something to build me up-some
thing that would bring back the
strength I was losing; something
that would help take away the wor
ries, give me a real appetite, tone
up my stomach and whole system
and quiet my nerves. Through
friends I heard of a new medicine,
Tanlac, aad decided that if it could
help others it ought to help me,
too, so I tried Tanlac. And now
he continued-for work is his big
thought in life-"I can do twice as
much work as I could before. My
nerves are cjuiet, I rest well, I enjoy
meals because my stomach digests
my food, I am stronger and feel

further proof asked. He felt it was
his duty to tell of Tanlac to help
others. No other medicine ever
has won such ?upport. Because
Tanlac is the reconstructive, system
purifier and stomach tonic, supreme
for weak, nervous ailing men and
women who need more strength,
better digestion and revitalization
of the nervous system, it re
