FARMERS! Fence Your Land
Control the price of your produce in the only way
you can by diversfying the use of your land. More
pastures will mean more pork and more profit. A hog
pasture is not expensive. Bermuda Grass planted this
fall will be in fine condition for pasturing next year, and
once planted will afford grazing for hogs and cattle sev
eral seasons. It will enable you to keep cows at small
expense and these housed from convenient pasture will
help to cut down fertilizer bill.
There is no limit to the possibilities with well fenced
land, and farm cut into convenient fields for pasturage

The proprietor of one of the largest
hotels in New York. speaking of the
uses made by nonpaying customers of c
his house, said to a rural guest a few c
days ago: "We have a large number of 1
patrons from whom we never collect t
a cent, although we have no such c
thing as a free list. They come here t
in the morning, pick up a castoff pa
per, which they read, keeping an eye 1
open for another, which they grab as
soon as it is dropred. After reading r
awhile they stand at the ticker, often c
giving long lectures to their fellows on r
financial conditions and stock possi- c
bilities. The overcoat becomes bt.rden- t
some, and it is taken to the check I
room, where its owner knows it will a
be perfectly safe. Then, if they can s
tear themselves from the ticker, let

cause we charge an extra a cents for 1
the call, but they carry home matches. I

They also take generous nibbles of c

The strangest part of all is this-that
the majority of this class are well to
do and highly respectable, and on that
account we do not shut them out"

The Sleeping Sickne .
The terrible sleeping si mess of a
tropical Africa is discussed at length t
in an article in Popular Mechanics. D
The disease. which long baffled scien- I
tists, is spread by the tsetse fly, a t
bloodsucking, day fying insect. On the I
approach of either man or animal at a I
river crossing in the densest forest t
the victim is soon scented out by the e
fly, if there is one in the vicinity, and t
then, either silently or with a peevish t
buzz, it makes straight for, the most a
accessible spot and gives' its -stab.
The usual course of the disease is t
from four to eight months. At the N
outset there are headache, a feverish a
conditon, lassitude and a correspond- a
Ing disinclination to work. The facial t
aspect changes,and a previously happy
and intelligent looking negro becomes a
instead dull, heavy and apathetic. e
Later, tremor in the tongue develops, i
speech is uncertain, and mumbling,
walk shuffling and progressive weak- t
ness, drowsiness and oblivion to his
surroundings afflict the sufferer. The
last stage is marked by extreme ema
ciation and a coma deepening into t
Cause of Fatty Heart. I
'The great danger from obesity lies
in the liability of the fat to invade the t
cellular elements of the body, especial- I
ly the muscles. This produces fatty t
degeneration of the muscular tissues, n
which greatly weakens and impairs t
their functional activity. When the b
fat invades the tissues of the heart a
muscles the disease known as "fatty S
degeneration of the heart" results, and t
the patient is in serious danger. When- d
ever a slight additional strain upon the e
circulation results from undue exer
cise, excitement . or other cause the d
muscles interfere with the heart's ac
tion, and It is liable to cease beating. I
Anaemia and hysteria often are accom- a
paniments of obesity. Because of the f
increased weight and difficulty of I1
moving about such patients are pre- b
vented from taking an ordinary I
amount of exercise. Often, too, thereo
are a lassitude and a positive dislikeC
for muscular exertion of any kind.
What to Eat.
From Medicine to the Drama.
The earlier part of 'Victorien Sar
dou's career was beset with many
trials and difficulties. His parents
wished him to take up a medical ca
reer, and he began his studies with
some zeal. The love of the drama,
however, was far greater than the
love of the pill box, and In the inter
val of the other work Sardou was
busy upon a play. Life was a strug
gle for him, for he had little money,
though he managed to get journalistic
work to supplement his more slender
income. His first play was a failure,
and Sardou rushed from the theater I
vowing never to enter one again. He
fell seriously Ill, was nursed back to '
health by Mile. de Brecourt, an ac
tress who lived on a floor below, and
from that time his fortune was made.

The Senate's Hole In the Wall.
When the rineteenth century was as
yet only half grown, senators applied
ustomarily for their toddies at the so
ailed Hole in the Wall, a small circu

ipper house. The 14tter body then
ccupied what is now the chamber of
he supreme court, and the postoffice

vearer of the toga found himself in
teed of a "snifter" he had only to

often the case, senators ate their sand

"Thou Diest on Point of Fox."
Fox blades were celebrated all
brough the sixteenth and seventeenth
enturies for their excellent temper,
nd mention of them is frequent in
nglish drama. This is their history:
There was a certain Julian del Rel,
lleed to be a Morisco, who set up a
orge at Toledo in the early part of
he sixteenth century and became fa
aous for the excellence of his sword
