want to speak bard of any ono, but it
was easy to seo how things lay be

have been forty If abe wus a day,
though sho didn't look it. Infatuated

"You know when a woman gotB to

crazy about him from the first, and lt

J "Thut was when she began coining
In hero to have her face massaged.
Sho didn't look forty,'but there's no
way-no, absolutely no way-in which
,a woman of forty can look like a girl

?but it didn't bring back youth. |

was so good at manicuring. She got
friendly with Mrs. Ulntoul, mid Mrs,
Ulntoul used to confide in her-most
everything, save that she never men

Matty told her about the doctor that
made a specialty of taking out wrin

permanent cure. You can massage

he never saw the Inside of any med

Of course Freddy Laurie didn't know

When I saw Mrs. Ulntoul I saw what !

BOYS DEMAND BETTER BOOKS
Youngsters Not Content Thea? Days
With Anything Dreamed by *
A Chicago librarian has made the
discovery that boys aro qulttlug the
so-callod. "boy fiction" for reading of
a different kind.. Thoy still read ile- ;
Hon, to be sure, but lt ls not their
chief reading nor ls tho Action they j
reud that provided by the old-school j
writers of boys' books, who had the
notion that the youthful masculine
mind required- and demanded a spe
cially prepared # and specially fla
vored food. 1
The boys of today, according to
this finding, are calling for tho bl
ogrnphles of Lincoln, Roosevelt, and
Edison. They are rending CJirlsty
Mathewson's "Hook of Sports," tho
"Hoys' Hook of Mounted Police," the 1
"Hoys' Hook of Home Science and i
Construction" and books on camping ;
and woodcraft. . J
When they go' In for fiction they j
read Mark Twain, Scott, Dumas,
Stevenson? Jules Verne find Kipling. !
They do not read, Henty and Oliver !
The only thing at all curious about !
this Is that lt should ever have been :
believed thnt boys had standardized
minds capable of taking anything but
spoon food. Roys Want first of all :
the genuine, and It would bo strange
If they didn't learn where to find lt.

(?'razing Crops for South Carolina.
A great deal has benn said and
written about forage crops for tho
southeastern States, but it is of such
vital importance that a review of
tho facts will do no harm. As the
uso of a certain forage crop so ma
terially reduces Ibo cost of produc
tion by reducing tho amount of con
centrates, and at the samo limo is
usually a soil building crop any Way',
it ls difficult to seo how we can af
ford to bo without it.
With tho exception of one or two
months in the year, the swine men
say, wo can have at any timo three
to slr different crops for grazing. We
can have oats and rye from January
until .lune, crimson clover (where
suitable) from February un tl J ?lune;
Bermuda and lospodc/.a from April
to 'Qc lober i velvet heans from .No
vember 1 to March 1 ; vetch from
December 1 to April 1; peanuts from
June to September, and cowpeas
and soy beans from May until No
Soil Moisture Control.
According to tho best estimates,
'.he United States is annually losing
400,000,000 tons of valuable sur
faco soil through erosion, or enough
to fill a Panama canal each year.
This loss is immense, especially in
tho Piedmont section of South Caro
lina, The control of soil moisture in
South Carolina is, therefore, tho first
big factor in soil management, says
N. R. Winters, specialist in soil fer
This soil goos ort through field
gulleys into our creeks and rivers.
lt is always tho finest soil particles,
tho most soluble plant food, tho very
cream of tho soil, which loaves us
first, because of the lack of control
of the soil moisture.
Our winters aro mild and our win
ter rainfall is hoavy, resulting in' a
serious loss In plant food'by leach
ing, even where the land ls not hilly
enough for surface erosion. This
leaching loss probably amounts to
40 to 50 pounds Qf precious ni tro
gen per acre Where our Holds are
left bare all winier long, following a
clean cultivated crop. In view of the
fact that commercial nitrogen ^vill
probably cost, us 30 cents a ?mund
next spring in our fertilizer, it be
hooves us to use every means avail
able for saving this plant food from
washing .nd leaching away during
the coming winter.
Tho uso of wide, clean t -nices
where ibo slope of tho land is from
foe to sixteen feet in 0 hundred 's
absolutely necessary to prevent sur
face erosion. Good soll .nanagement
is all that ls needed if the slopo is
loss than four foot in a hundred/ If
the slope 1B more than Htxteen feet
per hundrod, tho field had better be
soeded down in permanent grass and

the uso of green winter cover crops,
sucii as rye, oats, wheat, ryo and
vetch, oats and vetch, crimson clover,
bur clover, one or moro of which is
adnptdd to evory soctjon of South
Carolina, will help control tho soil
