They say true love is pleasure.
But what pleasure do I see,
Since the only girl that I ever loved
Has turned her back on me?
Since she's gone, let her go, God
She is mine wherever she may be.
She may travel this wide world over,
But she'll find no boy like me.
I would pawn my watch and chain,
I would pawn my diamond ring:
I would pawn this heart in my bosom
Just to win her back again.
There is many a change in the ocean,
There is many a change in the sea;
There is many a change in the heart,
But you will find no change in me.

Selection of Good Poultry
Clemson College, Feb. 6.-In the
breeding of poultry, it is very essen
tial to mate well developed males
with the breeding females. The
breeding males should conform to the
standard for that particular breed,
including color pattern and shape.
Breeding males should be vigor
ous and healthy. When selecting a
male bird for your breeding pen,
says N. R. Mehrof, extension poultry
specialist, select one whose every ac
tion bespeaks of life. Know his an
cestry, so that you know what he will
produce. Use only males out of h^h
producing females. Unhealthy and
non-vigorous males are unable to
transmit their desirable characteris
tics to their offspring.
A good breeding male has the fol
lowing characteristics: Carries his.
body erect, head up, breast out; has
a large heart girth as well as a deep,
long body, all of which are evidences
of abundant capacity; has /great
width of back and breadth between
the legs; has fineness of head parts
and color markings; shows vigor and
Good Breeding Females Necessary.
It is just as necessary and impor
tant to select good breeding females
as it is to select good breeding males
The breeding females should conform
to the standard in regard to shape,
color, and weight for that breed, and
should show all indications of health
Select females that are high pro
ducers. If you do not have hens that
have the ability to lay a maximum
number of eggs, purchase a few and
improve your flqck in that method.
Mate these females with desirable
A good breeding female has the
following characteristics: Clean cut
head, long back, large abdominal ca
pacity, well developed breast, good
color markings, vigor and health.
WANTED: Good, sound corn, for
milling purposes, fifty cents paid for
same in shuck or sixty cents shelled.

If the venerable ex-president of

that he derived some dletlc benefit
from tea, no exception would betaken
to the statement. It Is his frank ad

VOO ls nt the ?pot of the Hst
Polly and the
By H. LOUIS RAYBOLD
The position of flagman at Saunders
Crossing, which the railroad company
gave John Peters when he Injured his
foot while acting as brakeman on one
of -their trains, had Its delights and
Its torments. It was an easy -job with
considerable leisure time attached, but
it afforded him too frequently ' the
sight of -Polly Carr, who lived in
the little red house at the top of the hill
Not that Polly was disagreeable to ,
look upon. Quite the "contrary. Any j
girl ls pleasant to see whose eyes I
sparkle with the joy ot living, whose i
curving mouth turns upward at the
corners and in whose cheeks shines
the glow of health and youth. But
when John hurt his foot he gave up
the thought of Polly. Ask a girl to
marry a cripple, with nothing better
than the job of flagging trains? Well,
he should say not. And Polly, who
bad been on tip-toe for the question
to which she could so truthfully say
"yes," was left to wonder if she had
been mistaken in thinking he cared.
Now Polly, otherwise eminently sen
sible, was the most superstitious little
body Imaginable. j
Then one bright May morning the i
north-bound train slowed down and |
stopped at the crossing. Out stepped j
Polly's up-country aunt with umbrella
and traveling bag.
Polly was glad to see her aunt, part
ly because she was fond of her, and
a very great deal because nov?\ it
would be quite all right to Invite John
Peters to supper. If she had known
that Aunt Susan carried in her bag
something which would prove more*
efficacious In John's case than any
love philter, she would have fallen on
her aunt's neck and blessed her. That
something was an ouija board.
When John received from Polly the
Invitation to supper he had half a
mind to refuse. '
"I'll initiate you Into the mysteries
of the ouija board," she promised.
"Aunt and I work at lt every eve
ning. And every single thing it says
is true!" she added solemnly.
Ordinarily John had three hours at
supper time when neither north nor
south-bound train was due at the/
crossing. On the very night of Pol
ly's Invitation, however, he was no
tified by the dispatcher at the junction
to throw the switch for a freight
I Throughout the meal, delicious evl
denct of Polly's ability to cook, he
kept his brain working at the words,
i even as he praised with masculine ap
preciation the featherweight biscuits,
steak done exactly right and flaky
plc. Airer supper Aunt Susan gave
Polly little- push. 'Tm going to wash
.np, child. You run along in the parlor
and ?ntertain Mr. Peters." And Polly,
after one dutiful but weak protest,
"Let's get out the ouija board," she
suggested. "You ask It the first ques
tion and see what happens!"
So John, thinking how pretty Polly's
pink cheeks were, wanted to know ff It
would rain ia the morning. Heade
close together, Angers resting lightly
on tire triangular blt of wood, they,
waited for the ouija spirit tc start
working. Polly pouted when John
didn't seem Impressed at the vaguely
indefinito reply of "Maybe." Question
followed question, turn and turn about,
with more-or less-marvelous re
sponse. Then Polly, her color docp?
enlng a bit, inquired if she would
"Some day," came the answer,
tb "Who?" dared Polly.
John, his fingers trembling In spite
of himself, awaited the answer with
trepidation. What was Polly-or the
ouija board-up to?
Slowly the letters spelled ont into
John sprang up as If shot. Down
clattered the board and planchette.
Seizing his cane, the man leaped to
the front door, opened it and was gon$

Quickly she went out to the little
porch. Far down the hill sounded 1
the tap-tap of John's cane and his \
swift footfalls. There was another 1
sound-slow, monotonous, rumbling- !
then a whistle for the Crossing.*
She must find out if he got there in
time. Hatless, coatless. she ran down
the hill, only to meet John, breathing !
heavily, on the way back.
I "Were you In time?" she cried. !
"Thank heaven, yes!" he answered [
Then, "Polly," he demanded qqickly, I
"what was that answer going to be?" \
Polly gulped down a little sob. "G- '<

Biloxi and Otootan Soy Beans
Absolutely the best Soy Beans grown. The Biloxi
for seed production and forage, and the Otootan for
hay and soil improvement. The root system of the
Otootan is the greatest nitrogen gatherer of all beans.
. From four quarts of Otootan beans planted in 3 1-2
foot rows I actually made three tons of cured hay per
acre last year. The hay ranks higher than Alfalfa in
feeding value. These beans do not shatter in the field
like the Mammoth Yellow and others.
? Price $2.50 per peck, or $8.00 per bushel.
