A Kansas polico judge has hit upon
a new plan for dealing with persons
who aro brought before bim on tho
charge of being drunk. He sentences
them to stay in bed for ono week, thc
alternative being two weeks in jail. If
a person so sentenced "breaks bed"
that is, jets up and puts on clothes
before the expiration of the time of
the sentence, suoh person is hold io
contempt of court and must go to
jail for fifteen days. The justice says
that the best remedy be has ever
known for drinking is tho bed. So
long as a man can bo kept in bed he
doesn't eare much for a drink, and
when he has remained in bed a week
he is pretty apt to be sober and re
morseful, aqd willing to try to do the
tbe right thing.

There ?B a class of people who pride
themselves on their honoety and
frankness because, as they*tell us,
they "soy just what they think,"
throwing out their opinions right and
left just as they happeu to feel, no
matter where they may strike or whom
they may wound. TMB boasted frank
ness, however, is not honesty, but is
rather miserable impertinence and
reckless cruelty. We have no right
to say what wo think unless we think
kindly and lovingly; no right to un
load our jealousies, envies, bad hu
mors and miserable spites upon the
hearts of our neighbors. If we must
be bad tempered we Bhould at least
keep our ugliness locked up in our
own breasts and not let it out to
wound tho fcelirgs and mar the hap
piness of others. If wo must speak
out our dislike and prejudices and
wretched feelings let us go into our
own room and lock the door and close
the window?, so that no ear but our
Own shall hear the hateful words?
. If any man seemoth to be religious or

Will Raise Thc Best Apples.
Greenville, April IO.-Clemton Col
lege professors, m u going lu the apple
raising business. Not that tho mem
bers ot the faculty nru investing any
large SUIIIH of money in tho fruit in
dustry, but under the direction and
guidance of Col. Newman, formerly
head ol <lm agricultural department of
the College several hundred acres of j
land have heen purchased in the lillie
Kidge Mountains, on the headwaters I
ni the Savannah arni its tributaries,
and ?hirt spring thousands of trees have
been grafied or set out.
Because of declining years, Col.
Newman resigned some twelve months
ago, and with his books and other
personal belongings, t(?ok himself off
to a little cottage in tho mountains ?d'
Georgia, hut near the Oconee County
line. There ho iq spending Ins time

Other members of the Clemson fac
ulty have visited Col. Newmnu at his
mountain home. They have eton his
orchards and listened to his plans for
making a mountain homo and a paying
business at the same time, it there
ia ono thing Col. Newman knowe, and
he knows many things of agriculture
and horticulture, it is the cultivation
and handling of apples-tho sortof ap
ples people want and for which a full
price will be paid.
Col. Newman says thut he knows no
better spot in the land for cultivating
apples, the best apples, than the little
farms in the Blue Ridge. The Colonel
knows, because he bas raised apples in
the hills of Virginia. Following the
Newman cottage have como half a
dozen others, most of them of profes
sors who know more about chemistry
and English and mathematics than of
apples, so that now a regular summer
village is springing up, a village of ap
ple orchards and chestnut oaks.
There can be no doubt that the
strong sentiment rapidlv developing
in this section ia favor of diversified
farming is due in a large measure to
tho efforts of Col. Newman and his as
sistants at the State's agricultural col
lege. And it is not nt all improbable
that he will succeed in reviving the
apple i nd ur-try in the mountains of
this State, just ns tho peach business
hus sprung up in Georgia, with the
melon and trucking interests in lower
Apples, like other thingB, aro of two
kind of apples, good apples and poor
apples. '1 hero is money in the former,
but none in tho latter. That is what
Col. Newman emphasizes on his farm.
The trees must be of the right sort to
begin with and then they cannot be
neglected. The demand tor good ap
ples far exceeds the supply. During
the past season apples brought almost
as much on the maiket as Florida
oranges. There is little or co expense
attached to an orchard in the moun
tains once it is brought'to the point
of bearing. The fruit is easily har
vested and stands shipment. It is
thought that in the course of time
avni 1 abbi lands in the upper part of
the Piedmont, generally regarded as
unlit for use, will be turned into mod
ern apple orchards, adding a new in
