Boys fifty years ago rejoiced over
finding a hornet's nest and they had a
royal battle for every, one they did
find, but a "y aller jacket's" nest gave
the greatest pleasure to these boys,
and whatever boy has not been stung
bj one of the little "yaller" flyers
knov. n nothing of pain. A baseball
may break a finger or a rib, but there
is no suoh glory in this as was brought
by tho sting of "yaller jackets,3' and
there were preoious few boys raised in
Georgia before the war but what have
felt the pleasure of this sting and re
ceived the plaudits of the other boys
for some gallant rush with a brush on
the little hole in the ground that went
to their nest.
Biding the colts fifty years ago was
not so subjeot to wholesale killing and
mangling os the automobile runaways,
bot they were quito.as foolish, for the
colts could have been broke and man
.?ed in su.oh QQ intelligent way ai
ifould have brought no danger, but
there was better excuse, at least, more
romance in wrestling with a thing of
life, and taking tho chances that they
aid take than oan. ever be felt or

Sentiment, reverence, affeotion has
about gone through the worship of the.
commercial idea and now greatness
viii be simple meohanism-there will

I have said this little as a hinton
the lineB that have been and are still
drifting us away from things that once
lost oan never be reclaimed, and from
things that brought the best results
tod greatest blessings to these United
States of ours. I received a ' letter
rrorn a "orank" yeBter^p^, wherein ho
lays that in twenty more years one
half the people of the world will live
io towns and in this connection he
shows the speed of this trend. My
own observations makes me think this
bas been true, but I am hopeful and
believe that this trend has already
called ? halt, and of this satisfied
spirit in country life is what I liko tho
most to write about. .
Just DB boys took up tho notion that
it was better tc develop muscio by
athletics than by labor, so the girls
ook up the notion that the excellen
eies of their sex lay in wearing fine
clothes and having smooth skin. A
boy would refuse to out stove wood or
fo work the gardon because it was too
Wd work, go to the baseball field
and struggle and sweat almost to ex
haustion. Tho girls went to dieting
and bleaching for a complexion that

hose who hold their beauty from fol

We should bo no objection to any

oolish and ridiculous. A girl able to
'ear silk and satin[dqes not seem ridi

just about as easy by doing some good
in the -rorld as they ern by following
tho fads that puts mosey into some
fellow's pooket who has a "scheme"
and nothing.but a "soheme" to re
commend him. The farmers strong
enough to survive through "the
schemes" of the past thirty years
hare at last got .tho young folks to
guessing, if the old farmer's ways are
not the best. So the trend seems to
mc and I rejoice that it is so, and I
would.bo more than glad if I could
help along on this line. Thousands
of poor girls have been raised in re
cent years who could no more perform
the dutiea necessary to a housekeeper
than they could fly. It is not the
rich girls who suffer from this. If a
rich girl be sensible enough to become
imbued with economic and industrious
ideas suitable to the poor, then that
rion girl only gets the rioher, but where
a poor girl beoomes imbued with rich
notions she only gets ?bo poorer and
wilf curse the home that she enters or
the man that she marries. This ap
plies to boys and girls/and here in our
Country it is plain that they haye
awakened to it. I have never been
one to belieVe that girls should work
in the fioldo, but they should work in
the home and they should be sensible
enough t.* ;void such ideas of life as
will discourage the men who should
and will work for them if they only
will bo sensible.
We have already had some dewberry
pies and the blackberries will soon be
ripe. I never saw such a crop of these
berries as there is this year. Nature
is kind to us people in Georgia; if we
desert the fields they grow up in ber
ries first and then the pines take
possession and in a few years they are
as well timbered as in the original
fotest-no oonntry but the South, I
think, can claim this, at least in so
short a period. A field that I saw in
oom ten years ago is now covered
with a growth of pines that I am sure
would turn oat as mach wood as the
original forest, while there tte spots
here and there co vere tj with briars and
literally covered with berries.
And the "redbugs" have returned
to us, not in such abundance as they
used to be, bat enough to make' us
scratch and feel good at scratching.
Brown has always said that the itoh
gave him the greatest pleasure that ho
felt during the war, and to understand
that you only have toc?me out and
get covered with these "redbugs"-it
is splendid, as far as the boys are oon
?e?nsd, and I ezpeot, the giris would
say so too, for it is.fashion here now
and whatever is the fashion is hard io
disagree with. I Can't see why country
people should not have some fashions
of their own without going to town
for the tip, and I think we have in
these "redbugs." ,

"0,1 take it to aid digestion.' I
suffer so from dyspepsia," was the
reply pf an army officor when caution
ed against tho uso of aleoholio drink.
What folly i Why, men put dead flesh
into alophol to prevent it from corrup
tion, To take drink to allay fever or
reduoe an inflammation ia like putting
oil on fire. Injuries and gunshot
wounds fare far worse in a drinking
man than in a sober one. "But for
the alcohol in him," says the doctor;
"or the bad blood caused by the beer,
there might be hope."
A man's motive in taking the drink
may bo good, but liq?c?? never stop
to ask you what you want of them;
they go in and do their work of death.
But it IB said that liquor is needful

Why does the soldier need it? Is it
to give him warmth? This it never
.does. Aloobol produces a sudden ex
citement and glow, but it abstracts
heat, and the man is colder after it
than he was before it. o Does he need
it for nourishment when exhausted?
j This if does not give. Tho idea that
alcohol is consumed ia the system,
and is properly food, is exploded? ; It
is never digested, more than a stroke
of lightning. It remains in che sys

Driak Water Freely,
Few people realise the importare*
ol free water drinking. Yet the large
proportion of wator, not only ?in the
body, but elsewhere throughout tho
earth, would of itself indicate tho im
portance cf water. Tho hum au body
contains about ?hreo-fourihs water,
while most of the articles used as food
contain from three-fourths to nine
tenths water. Is the human system
there is no e true turo or organ whioh
decs net contain water. 'The teeth,
the hardest ead densest tissue ia the
body, contains IO per cent of wster;
the muioles are three-quarters water;
the bones are 13 per cent water and
the blood is four-flf the water. Gae trio
juico is 94 per oent perspiration, 98
per cent saliva and 90 per cent water.
The blood stream, consisting of
about seven quarts of fluid, circulates
through its tubular conduits, the ar
teries, capillaries and veins, at the
speed of about seven miles au hour,
168 miles per d-.y.
The blood is in reality only a solu
tion in water of certain matters out of
whioh by a complex system of filters
all. the other Fluids of the body are
formed. In other words the blood
holds, in solution, all the elements
out of whioh the gastrio juice, the sal
iva, the intestinal fluids, the synovial
fluid and a dozen other fluids are pro
When it ie mentioned that during
twenty-four hours these wonderful
little filter o ell a secrete from the blood
about from four to eight quarts of gas
trio juioe, about one quart of saliva,
about two quarts of intestinal and
pancreatic juice, as well as smaller
quantities of many other fluids-when
this is understood some idea may be
gathered of tho immense j importance
of water, whioh is, aa has been said,
the real fluid of i the body, A great
authority on physiology has said:
"Water is a very important f jod ele
ment, as all physiologic ohanges take
place in a wate?, y solution. Water is
the medium through whioh the body
i 3 Douri shed,"
Water is constantly leaving the
body-through four avenues, the skin,
the lungs, the bowels and the kidneys.
Of the total amount of water leaving
the body about 5 per cent, or one
twentieth, is excreted through the ali
mentary tube. One-fifth,, or 20 pei
cent, is oarried off by the lungs in the
form of aqueous vapor. About one
third leaves by way of the skin, thc
fluid known as perspiration, while
nearly one-half is voided by the kid
neys. The water thus carried out ol
the body is heavily laden with vari
ons poisonous mat. ers, the retentioi
of whioh would be not merely injuri
ons, but fatal. For instance, the per
spiration contains about one-half of "
per cent of urea, besides other pois
ons, lactates, sudoratos and iporganl
salts. The urine contains about '
per cent of urea, also urie acid, orea
tin, Creatinin, exanthin, tyrosin, hyp
purio aoid, leuoin, oystin and taufin
besides many other exorementitiou
poisons. V \
As one Of the greatest pathologist
now living said: "The body is a fae
tory of poisons." And upon th
ability to relieve itself of these poi(
ons-upon the incessant activity . :
the organs intrusted with ouch wor
of elimination depends not only th
health, but the very life of the indiv:
dual. There is a story to the eSEee
that somewhere a great pageant wt

be a good idea to GO ver the little bo

that is to say, he was dead. Tl

point is that it might have oeon tru
For to paint the skin and thus ob s tru
the pores of the skin would mean tl

, cient to cause death in a very sho
Now from the foregoing we see th
all the vital processes take place ic
watery solution, and that tho exoi
tion of tho waste poisons of the bo?
is accomplished by a process of was
ing ont with water through the fo
avenues of elimination known as ski
lungs, bowels and kidneys.
From what has been said it c
readily be understood why it is thi
although a man can live for from sis
to eighty days without food, as t
".??cen proved on several occasions, j
if deprived of fluids for six or eij
days he dies a terrible death,
these cases death would result fr
two cause; first, the retention of po
ons for the elimination of whioh wa
in the forms of sweat,. vapor from i
lungs, urine, cte., was necessary, ai
eocond, from a stoppage of those vi
functions in whioh water is used.
Tho most striving and distinct
peculiarity of watPv is that it is af

water in the body as elsewhere ia

The following inquiry has been re
ceived from H. P. Briden of Bremer
"Would like to ask about feeding
coal to hogs. Is it of benefit? Ie it
not injurious to little pigs, from 4 to
8 weeks old?"
Mr. Theo. Lewis, a man who has
been eminently suooessful in raising
hogs gives the following advice:
"Take six bushels of this cob char
coal, or three bushels of common ohar
ooal; eight pounds of salt, two quarto
of air-8laoked lime; one bushel of
wood ashes. Break the oharooal well
down, with sb o vol or other imple
ment, and thoroughly mix. Then
take ono and a quarter pounds of cop
peras and dissolve in hot water, and
with an ordinary watering pot sprinkle
over the whole mass and then again
mix thoroughly. Put this mixture
into the self-feeding boxes, and plaoe
thom where hogs of all ages can eat
of thoir contents with pleasure."
Judging by tho success that Mr.
Lewis has had in the hog business wo
would infer that tho above mixture is
in no way injurious to hogs of any
ago. Tho manner of reducing corn
oohs to charcoal as praotioed b v Mr.
Lewis, is to dig s hole in thc ground
five feet deep, ono foot in diameter at
the bottom and five feet at tho top,
for tho charcoal pit. Take tho corn
oohs, whioh havo been saved in a dry
plaoe, and, starting a fire in the bot
tom of this pit, keep adding oohs BO
that the flame is gradually drawn to
tho top of tho pit, which will bo thus
filled with oohs. Then take a sheet
iron cover, similar to a pot lid in
form, and over five feet in diameter,
so ss to amply cover the hole and
dose up the burning mass, sealing the
edges of this lid in turn with earth.
At the end of twelve hours you may
