It came to be evident about the mid-.
die of the last century that, in order
tn explain certaiL' facts connected with
th~e relative weights of gases, matter
must not merely consist of atoms, but
that these atoms must have the power
of uniting in small grn:ips. In form
ing a compound. indeed, thIs must be
so. For ,instance.. a rbonie acd, gas,

INCREASE IN FARM PROFITS
Farmers Make Serious Mistake of
Spreading Energies Over Too
Large Ares, Says Worst.
(By J. H. WOrST. Dean of North Da.
kota Agrieultural Collge.)
It requires approximately seven dol
lars per acre to grow a crop. This
includes interest on the investment,
coat of seed, wear and tear on farm
machinery, labor, etc. By adding one
dollar's worth of labor to each acre,
there Is little question but that the
average profits would be doubled. In
Ather words, as much profit should be
malised from the one additional dol
ar's worth of labor as Is now realized
rem the seven dollars' worth of n-l
Lvodable labor and investment. Con.
iequently If farmers would devote
me-third of their land to growing corn
nd alfalfa, neither of which interferes
rith the time and labor emloyed In
arming wheat, and put one-third
more labor, thus make available on
uly twothirds as many acres -of
rheat, they would grow more wheat
ban where they spread their energies
ver one-third larger acreage. The
orn and alfalfa fed to live stock
rould insure them a large additional
icome, and one that Is not often ad
ersely Influenced by climatic condi
ons. while the fertilty deposited up
a the -'farm resulting from feeding
1e corn and alfalfa to live stock
ould vastly Improve the productive
Bas of the soil.
Handling Manure Once Only.
It should be the rule never to ban
e manure more than once. When re-4
oved from the barn or feedingashed 4
should be loaded at once into the
'reader and hauled to the fild. If
e farm Is small and the amount pro- 4
teedlisonly at the rate ofone or two
dad a week, the convenience and im
ovement of taking It directly from
e stable and spreadingit at once o 4

Manure and Moisture.

Clarendon County Schools' Fa>
The School Improvement Assoiation i co-operation wvith
County Board ot Education has decided to hold a County sch
fair at Manning Frid ay, December 12th. At 10:30 o'clock, tb
will be a parade of the future citizens of the county, the sc:
children, beginning at the school house and ending at the
Each school in the county is expected to have as many boc.
at the fair grounds as there are teachers in the school. The
hibits in these will consist of any articles made, raised, or owitr.e
by the cbildrce.
These will be judged according to Quality. Quantity, Var
Attractiveness, by men and women from other parts of tbe st.
Each school is expected to decorate its own booth, and to b
the expenses of constructing it. This will be only a small amot:,
and the boys and girls will beallowed to sell any of their artic.
to defray all or any part of such expense. I suggest the followi i
things as suitable for the booths. but this by no means limits "
display, as we want originality, and are anxious to see just what
our boys and girls caa do.
Examination papers, compositions, maps. 'drawings, paining,
problems in arithmetic, algebra, geometry. Exercises in gram,
mnar, paper cutting, paper folding, posters, sand table work, se%.
ing, fancy aprons, plain aprons, dresses. shirt 'waists. embro 5

on patches, in mending clothes. in darning stockings, quilts, sc:
pillows, work bags, dressed dolls, bought dolls, and home maie
Lolls, rag dolls, hickory nut dolls, corn shuck dolls, paper dolis,
baby caps, sun bonnets, shuck and raffia hats, doll hatq.

Articles raised. such as corn, potatoes, chickens, hogs, goats.
calves, nuts, vegetables, fruit, sugar cane, flowers, etc. -
We expect to offer $5.00 in gold each.'for the best exhibit by a
one teacher school, by a two teacher school, by a three teacher
school, and by those with more than one teacher, makink twenty
lollars in prizes.
Immediately after the parade, and while things are humming on
the fair grounds, we expect to have a "Better Babies Contest"
the school house.
These contests have taken root wherever thinking men aned
women are found. They are practical, because they arouse p:.r
ental pride, creates a desire to study child life, and help'hunianity.
by teaching each parent to help himself.
The better babies contest consists of a competitive examination
of children of three years of age, or under, by physicians, with
prizes for the high scoring babies, Mere beauty does not cout.z,
but the intrinsic value of the baby as a human machine, well prro
portioned. properly nourished, does.
The Woman's Home Companion is behind the movement. Ihae
received from them instructions -as to the conduct of the conte-i.
They will contribute to handsome better babies, medals in brone.
to be awarded to the farm:baby. and the town baby scoring t :e
highest average. To each first prize winner in any class, thv
vill present a handsome cprtificate, prir-,rl in three colors. The
will be other better babies prizes annow:.
