Study the Business and Profes
sional Men in Your Town.
Watch the men in the towns you
trade with-the merchans, bankers,
lawyers, doctors, warehousemen, cor
t?n buyers, etc., etc.
See which men are generous and
public-spirited and which are not.
Find out which men are interested
in better schools, better roads, public
health, sound morals, good citizen
ship, and all the things that make for
civilization and progress.
See which men arc liberal and
which men are "tightwads*' when ap
peals come- from Red Cross, the V.
M. C. A., school taxes, new school
buildings, community fairs, prizes
for boys and girls and all such things.
See which men subscribe adequate
ly for Liberty Loan bonds and War
Savings Stamps, and which men sub
scribe as little as possible so as to put
their money in something which will
bring in a little more interest.
Xow shall we criticise, abuse, and
denounce the men who by these tests
show themselves selfish, little-hearted,
little-soulcd? No, let's try apprecia
tion of the generous men rather than
depreciation of the selfish ones. Al
ready too many of our people are
so busy criticising, abusing and de
nouncing all the bad they find in the
world, (and making themselves mis
erable thereby) that they never get
time to praise and encourage thc
good-and increase their own happi
Try to pick out the men who are
liberal and unselfish and atune with
progress. Tell your neighbor about
then1 and make up your mind to do
business only with such men hereaf
ter. In this way you will throw the
profits of your business where part
of it will go to improve the communi
ty and the county and the country,
instead of having these profits go sim- ?
ply to enrich some selfish man and ;
It is your duty to throw your finan- j
cial influence to business and pr fes
sional men of the right type. And by
the right type we mean men who be- !
lieve that whatever prosperity God
gives them. He gives them not for j
their own selfish enjoyment but to I
hold as trustees of His, giving a fair
proportion to each good and worthy
cause that presents itself.

Fresh and smoked country sausage

Sausage is profitable because it 1
brings almost as much as ham. There
is little shrinkage compared to smok- j
ed goods. In sausage one gets a high
price for fat and seasoning.
Leave liver out of sausage, also
lumps and everything else but lean I
meat and fat trimmed from the back |
and cuts of meat. There are plenty
of other uses for the "innards," j
Do not use leaf fat in sausage, as it
melts av.ay and leaves the sausage
A sausage proportion that most
people like is three parts lean meat
to one of fat.

you put it on to cook, or the casing j
Don't throw away the bones. Crush
or grind them for the chickens and

Fresh sausage can be k"pt under a
layer of lard for a number of days.
Aside from the immediate demand
for poultry and eggs for home and
local consumption the close of the
war will, we believe, open a large
market for poultry for breeding pur
poses to supply the needs of the
countries now at war. The destruc- j
tion of breeding stock of all kinds
in the war zones will, after the war
ends, create an enormous demand
which this country will have to
This breeding stock will include
poultry, and as we can see it, the
many months, find a large market for
all good poultry at remunerative prie- ;
es, and now is the time to make prep
The first step is to make up the
breeding pens. Select no fowls for
breeders that are not pure bred, in
vigorous health, and strong in all im
portant breed characteristics. Dis
card all those showing disqualifying
points, studying the standard in mak
Avoid the common error of mating
a male with too many females. Of
the American and English breeds, use
one vigorous male to six or eight fe
males; of Mediterraneans, one male
to ten or twelve females. Where it is
convenient to have a separate run
5.nd house for extra males, two males
can be used with each pen, increas
ing the number of females one fourth
or one-third. Put the males in the
runs with hens on alternate days, giv- '
ing each a day of quiet.
As a rule, the best results are ob
tained by mating full grown cocks,
two years old or more, with pullets,
and cockerels with hens two years
old and above. Use no males that are
noe vigorous, aggressive, constantly
attentive to their flock, regardless of
the beamy of any bird. No drones
Relying cn hens io do thc hatching
is too uncertain and risky, especially
at this time, when even market eggs
are so high-priced. Get an incubator,
not a cheap one, but a well made re
liable machine. Study carefully the
instructions for operating, and follow
them strictly. Do not allow any med
dling with an incubator, not even to
show a visitor "how it works." Do
the lamp filling and cleaning, and the
egg turning at regular fixed hours.
A brooder is absolutely necessary,
and for the best results, a well venti
lated brooder room. Many claim good
results from the use of outdoor brood
j ors. but at this time of the year the
brooder room is safest. Make sure
'of ventilation, see that it is rat-proof.
j Keep a good bed of dry sand on the
floor, and on this three or four inches
i of line cut clover, alfalfa or other lit
ter. When fine grain is scattered in

? Few Facts About Tobacco.
Result of the Life Extension Insti
tute's Investigation as Given in
"Nicotine Next," by Fred
erick William Roman.
Suggestions for Lesson on Anti-Nar
Tobacco is a plant quite as poison
ous as the deadly night-shade. Indeed
its active principle, nicotine, is the
second only to pruss': acid in the
rapidity of its fatal effect. One drop
on the unbroken skin of a rabbit has
caused death, and fatal results from
external application of tobacco to
human beings are recorded. One cigar
may contain enough nicotine to kill
a man if the entire quantity be taken
It is claimed by some that thc nico
tine is destroyed in the process of
smoking, but the weight of evidence
is against this conclusion. A sufficient
amount of nicotine is absorbed be
fore it is destroyed by burning to
make it a drug factor. There is also
formed in the process of burning.
Pyridin, a poisonous substance used
to denature alcohol ami render it un
fit for internal use. Furfural is also
formed in the process of burning to
bacco. This substance is found in fu
sel oil. and is a source of danger in
improperly aged whisky. The smoke
of one cigaret may contain as much
furfural as two ounces of bad whisky.
Experiments on rabbits which have \
been compelled by an ingenious appa
ratus to smoke cigaret tobacco from
six to eight hours daily, showed the
development of degenerative chang
es similar to those produced by thc I,
injection of nicotine, the most im
portant being hardening o? the blood j i
Nicotine at first slows the heart ?
and increases the blood pressure, sub- j
sequently the blood pressure is low
ered and the heart action becomes j
rapid. The effect on thc brain is es- j
sentially narcotic, or depressing, j
Those whose thoughts flow more rea- |
dily under the use of tobacco are j
simply in the same case with any |
other habitue whose thoughts can not j
flow readily except under the accus- .
tomed indulgence. That a sound and j
healthy man, who has never been ac- j
customed to the use of tobacco, can j
do better mental or physical work j
with tobacco than without it has nev- j
er been shown. Indeed, thc experi- j
ments that we have quoted show the j
Experiments on animals with nico
tine extracts of tobacco, and the in
halation of tobacco smoke, have pro- .
duced hardening of the large arte
ries. .Many clinicians have observed j
these same conditions apparently
brought about in man by heavy smok
Some of the unfavorable effects :
noted by physicians are as follows: .
Heart and Circulation: Disturb
ance of the blood pressure rapid r
heart action, shortness of breath, pal
pitation of the heart, pain in the re
gion of the heart. So-called tobacco
heart is a very serious condition.
While the cessation of the use of to
bacco may restore normal conditions
death may occur as a result of any
unusual strain while the condition 1?
present. How many deaths have oc
curred from typhoid and from sur
gical operations among those who 1
have injured the nervous mechanism ;
of their circulation by tobacco will
never bc known, but surgeons have
noted instances of failure to rally
after operations among cigaret smo
kers. In such cases racovery has been
postponed until tho accustomed in
dulgence was supplied. j
Acid dyspepsia, insomnia, catarrhal
conditions of the nose, throat and ear
and even blindness, have followed thc
excessive use of tobacco.

No Restrictions on Building.
Columbia, Nov. 22 - Effective
Thursday, November 21, all restric
tions previously in force on construc
tion projects of every kind were re
moved by the War Industries Board.
The State Coueil of Defense has been
?o advised in a telegram from Wash
This action was taken by the War
Industries Board after a question
naire had been sci:! out to the De
fense Councils of all States, which
have been acting as thc agencies
through which the War Industries
Beard has investigated and passed on
non-war construction projects. In the
opinion of the majority of the De
fense Councils the necessity for re
strictions has been relieved. On No
vember 12, all restrictions were re
moved on building projects ranging
from $10,000 to $25,000 in cost, as
the re sult of a conference of Defense
Council representatives held in Wash
ington with the War Industries Board
but it is now felt that the situation
as regards labor and building mate
rials will permit of the removal of
The State Council of Defense, act
ina; for the War Industries Board
handled a large volume of applica
tions for building permits, involving
heavy work during the past few
months, while the restrictions have
been in force. The number of con
struction projects in South Carolina
for which thc War Industries Board
declined to issue permits during this
period was 85, totalling $700,000 in
cost; and it may bc reasonably ex
pected that, the restrictions now re
moved, this projected construction,
held up temporarily, will proceed.
