Country Banks9 Opportunity.
There is a great opportunity now for
the country banks, which are generally
the mainstay of their comunities, and
whose officials are usually farmers as
well as bankers. The State receipt
! puts them on an equal footing with
the metropolitan hanks. 1 am confident
that they will make a proper response
to the request of President Wilson',
and that if they are given money
at 4 per cent they will be perfectly
willing to let the farmers have it at
6 per cent.
When war was threatened between
the States in 1860 one of our statesmen 1
started the work by the declaration'
that there could be no war "because j
cotton was king." He was-only fifty i
years ahead of his time. Today man- j
kind is under the complete domination;
of cotton. 'There could be no war without
cotton. The war last year overturned
prices and caused untold hardship
to the producers, and yet without
cotton there could have been no war.

i HOW TO DRINK FROtf
A BUBBLING FOU>TAI>
If improperly constructed or irr.\properly
used, the bubbling drinking
fountain may be a greater menace to
health than the common drinking cup.
j T< e other day an inspector of the U.
j 5. -health service took a seat beside a
j bubbling drinking fountain in a raili-way'station
and watched the wav in
| which it was used. Firty-seven differ!
ent persons, of whom 11 were men, 22
were-women, 14 children, used the bubj
bling fountain. In almost every case
j the lips were placed almost completeI
lv around the metal ball from which
ti~e crater spurted, and one small boy
seemed as if he were trying to swallow
it. Several of the men obviously
were chewing tabacco. Of the 47 peonlp

Every persons using the bubbling
drinking fountain should bear in mind
that t:e object of the sanitary device
ie to prevent the interchange of the
moufcb secretions. Wien mucous and
other matter becomes attached to
metal It sometimes requires considerable
force to remove it, and this is not
always accomplished by a slowly moving
current of water. In using the
bubling fountain, the rule should be,
"Bite t)":e Bubble." The lips should not
touch any part of the fountain and
under no condition should the foun-1
tain be used for rinsing the mouth or j
