GHOSTS THAT REALLY LIVE
In the Modern World 8ome of Them
Actually Make Their Living,
Hiere are ghosts in ^ie material as
.well as in the spirit world. In fact
some people earn their living by act
ing as "ghosts." Some "ghosts" often
become prominent in their "profession"
despite the fact that their work ls
Busy painters sometime hand their
canvasses over to lesser known artists
to "touch up" or finish off. The
struggler is glad of the work, the
artist ls able to do more and the re
sult' seems to please the public.
Minor authors often practice the
same thing. A man may be writing
a book on the history of Mexico-let
ns say. He needs certain Informa
tion which he knows can be obtained
from reference books. Gathering that
information does not require the
brains trf a genius, his secretary can
do that quite well while he works up
the "local color" from the bare facts
obtained. It 13 an open secret that
many writers work in this way and
that ghosts are often employed to
"write up" books of reminiscences of
celebrities. Sometimes, the work these
"authors" behind the scenes do is lm-%
portant. They revise novels, draw
"ends" together, work up "climaxes"
and give dramatic effect to "situa
tions."-Cleveland Plain Dealer.
INDIANS WELCOME AT MIAMI
Seminole? Add Picturesqueness to
Well.Known Florida Resort by
Their Gaudy Costumes.
Visitors to Miami are always in

Everglades paddliu;,' down the Miami
river or the canals In their quaint ca
noes, or mingling with the crowds
upon the streets in their character
istic and picturesque dress, made of
gaudy colored horizontal stripes of
During the summer the Indians go
far out Into the Everglades, but in
winter months they come nearer the
city, and a camp of them is usually
situated on the Miami river Just out
side the city limits. Here In a trop
ical jungle, on the banks of the river,
they erect their huts with thatched
roofs and sides, Pranged in a circle
with the communal campfire in the
center. The number in this camp
varies from 80 to 50. They go back
and forth into the glades to their
truck farms for provisions and for fish
The Seminoles are a peaceful
tribe, and cause no trouble.
Selects Strange Home.
No bird selects stranger places for a
home than the house wren, the flighty,
fidgety, fussy little midget of a bird
that carols all day and would fight a
-Sharkey buzzard or any .other thing that
flies. The biological survey of the
Department of Agriculture says:
"Probably no bird displays greater ec
centricity in the selection of a nest
ing place than the house wren." A
hollow branch or a knothole in a post
or stump are his more prosaic choices.
When more esthetically inclined he
affects old boots and hats hung up to
scare robbins from the cherries, or
takes an old copper pot or tomato
can lying on the roof of a back shed;
or If the gardner hangs his coat on
the fence when warm weather begins,
and forgets It for a few days, he may
find when he returns that an enter*1
prising wren has preempted one of his
pockets and has his domestic affairs
under full headway.
Demon Was Cuttlefish.
For many centuries Norwaj has had
its legends telling frightful deeds of
the kraken, a great and mysterious
marine creature that was a danger
to sailors on the high seas. Now
. scientists have fonnd that the locali
ties in which these folk-tales flourish
are the habitat of giajuVsqulds or "cut
tlefish," of the genus Archlteuthus,
that have frequently been cast up
upon sea beaches. According to Dr.
James Ritchie of the Royal Scottish
museum, the largest of these on rec
ord had tentacles with a span close
to 30 feet It was nine feet nine
Inches lcng from the tip of its tall to
to tip of Its short arms, but Its tenta
cular arms were each 14 feet long.

Publishing Items Over and
The Salisbury News is '''serving
notice" because some of its patrons
commenced a row when it refused
to publish items over and over again."
It was this way: Good people asked
publicity for proposed entertain
ments of a most ' worthy kind, and
where no private money would re
sult. This publication was cheerfully
made. But, then, continued publicity
foir the same enterprise, day after
day, for a fortnight, was asked.
The News declared that this was
asking too much, however-public in
stitution a privat? newspaper busi
ness may be, that the subject matter,
having lost its "news" feature had
lost its right in the "news" columns
and that, having become pure adver
tising, properly belonged to the ad
vertising columirs at so much per.
Newspapers everywhere face just
this situation always with trepidation.
They want to help in worthy under
takings. Yet if they would say "yes"
to every request along this line made
on them, they would.soon butt the
rocks. It is difficult for a good citizen
to see why he or she, or his or her so
ciety, or his or community enterprise
-into which they put days of hard
work and out of which they get, and
expect, absolutely no money or other
reward-should be expected to be
asked to have their projects pay for
newspaper publicity. Yet if the pub
lisher in an ordinary-sized town yield
to all of the requests of this kind, he
hurts his business materially.
This is one of the vexatious prob
lems of newspapering. As for the
Salisbury paper, hereafter it is "go
ing in for one publication only" and
after that "you'll find it in the adver
tising columns or not at all."-Au

These are therefore to cite and ad

and creditors of said Nora M. Bart
ley deceased, that they be and appear
before me, in the Court of Probate,
to be held at Edgefield, S. C., in my

after publication thereof, at ll
o'clock in the forenoon, to show
cause, if any they have, why the said
adminsitration should not be granted.

Produce Clean Infertile Eggs.
Clemson * College, May 8.-^Now
that the' breeding season is over,
poultrymen must give attention to
the production of eggs that are infer
tile. The markets want infertile eggs,
and it is up to the producers to put
a product on the market that the peo
ple will buy.
After the breeding season the
males .should be separated from the
females. If the male birds are good
ones, they should be penned up sep
arately, and if they are just mediocre
it will not pay to feed and keep \them
over till the next breeding season.
The government estimates state
that the farmers lose $15/JGu,OOO a
year on fertile eggs. The U. S. De
partment of Agriculture says: "You
can save the $15,000,000 now lost
from (blood rings by keeping the male
bird from your flock after the hatch
ing season is over. The rooster "does
not help the hen to lay. He merely
fertilizes the germ of the egg. The" fer
tile germ in hot weather quickly^b?
comes a blood ring, which spoils"the
egg for food and market. Summer
heat has the same effect on fertile
eggs as a hen or incubator."
And it is not merely a question of
infertile eggs. That is very impor
tant, but ifinfertile eggs aren't' pro
duced under sanitary conditions, it
will be almost impossible to produce
good clean eggs, says N. R. Mehfcjlog,
Extension Poultry Specialist. . \
Clean nests must be provided for
the hens to, lay the eggs in, one lie-k
for every four to five hens. It is im
portant to gather the eggs often, at'
least twice a day. If the hens are
kept in a sanitary environment, good'
clean eggs will be produced. These
should be marketed often.

How firm a foundation, ye saints
of the Lord,
Is laid for your faith in His. ex

What more can He say than to you

You who unto Jesus for refuge
In ev'ry condition, in sickness, in
In poverty's vale ,or abounding in
At home and abroad, on the land,

As your days may demand, shall
your strength ever be.
The soul that on Jesus hath leaned
I will not, I will not desert to.its
That soul, tho' all hell should en

I'll never, no never, no never for
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus' blood and righteous- .
I dare not trust the sweetest
But wholly lean on Jesus' name.
On Christ the Solid Rock I stand;,4
All other ground is sinking sand, v
All other ground is sinking sand.
When darkness veils his lovely
I rest on His unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale,"
My anchor holds within the vale.
His oath, His covenant, His blood,
Support me in the whelming flood;
When all around my soul gives
He then is all my hope and stay.
Am I a soldier of the cross
A fdllower of the Lamb!
And shall I fear to own His cause
Or blush to speak His name?
In the name of Christ the King,
Who hath purchased life for me,
Through grace I'll win the prom
Whate'er my cross may be. /
Must Lbe carried to t? skies
On flowery beds of ease,
While others fought to win the
And sailed through bloody seas?
Are there no foes for me to face?
Must I not stem the flood?
Is this vile world a fri?nd to grace,
To help me on to God? ^
Revive Thy work, O Lord!
Thy mighty arm make bare,
Speak with , the voice that wakes
And make Thy people hear !
And give refreshing showers,
The' glory shall be all Thine own,
The blessing shall be ours.
Revive Thy work, O Lord !
Disturb this sleep of death;
Quicken the smould'ring embers
By Thine almighty breath.
Revive Thy work, O Lord !
Create soul thirst for Thee ;
And hungering for the bread of
