the most humane way of killing crabs
and lobsters Is to place them in cold
water and very gradually raise the
temperature. The death which ensues
is apparently quite painless, and must
be somewhat analogous to .that of a

Extremely Contagious Disease a
Fowls Can Cause Serious Los
Unlc%-s Promptly Checked.
Sorahead, a disease of chickens caui
ed by spores of a common mold, al
pears when fowls come in contact witl
moldy litter. or moldy grain. It seem
not to be a constitutional disease. I
is usually confined to the face, comt
wattles and ear-lobes, eyes, nostrils
and mouth, but Is occasionally foun4
under the wings in advanced or ne
lected cases. It is extremely coi
tagious and may spread through i
flock in twd or three days.
Sorehead is of two kinds, dry an
moist, according to the surface at
tacked by the spores. If it is on the mt
cous membrane of the eye, mouth, o:
nostrils, the moist type develops; I
on the skin of the face or adjacen
parts, It will be the dry or warty varl
ety. The moist type Is a most seriou:
disease, growing rapidly. It. soo
closes the eyelids. which swell to al
enormous size, blinds the fowl, an
causes it to waste away and die.
When sorehead appears, it is no
necessary to Isolate the diseased fowl
from the flock. Look for moldy litte
or food and if it Is found replace I
with fresh. Check the disease by colot
iag the* drinking water -pink with i
few crystals of permanganate of poi

-Plant Pecarn For its Shade as
Well as It's Fruit.
I have before me pecan nuts of th
1915 crop that were grown in th
Coastal section of South Carolina and
some others that were produced il
the extreme northwestern corner c
the state at an elevation of 900 feet
These nuts, representing one of os
best varieties, the Stuart, are suff
cient evidence that the pecan wil
thrive in~ practically every locality I1
South ,Carolina, from the foothills c
the Blue Ridge Mountains to the sea
-Each of our farm hories should be
surrounded by nut-bedring trees rath
er than by other trees of less beauta
and of no economic value. We paa
high prices for small, inferior nutt
when about our very doors can be
grown the choicest sorts. F'urther
more, there are large possibilities ir
the production, of pecans for conimer
clal purposes. Standard varieties sel
dom sell for less than 30 cents
pound,. et there Is a profit In growing
pecans at 10 cents a pound. A pecar
orchard of good varieties gives pleas
ure as well as profit and is to an:
farm or suburban home a permanen1
and valuable asset.
The most Important point in the
successful establishment of a pecar
orchard is to use vigorous trees oj
good varieties. Varieties recommnend
ed for South Carolina are Stuart
Schley., Success, Van Deman,- Frot
scher, Pabst, and Money-Maker. Se1
the trees .carefully in large deep holes
about 60,feet apart each way. Glve
them as much-care and attention as Is
given your - most profitable farm cro:
and you will not be~ disappointed it
the results. A neglected pecan tree
will yield nio more profitable returns
than will any other neglected crop o1
It Is well to plant the orchards t<
gardeji or field .crops, driving 'stakes
beside the trees to prevent them frot
being bruised In cultivating. Intensive
cultivation and fertilizing of the crops
between the rows ci trees will usuall!
be sufficient to kcep the pecans grow
A few nuts may be expected from
each tree in three yer.rs after trans
planting and the amount will increast
each year. By the tenth year' the tree:

About Sond Wave.
- One of those scientists ,;ho are al
I ways' developing apparent paradoxes
, In thought as come forwardlwith the
a statement 1:rLsound itself Is not eg
traneous, but exists only because of
nerve. In other words. If the ears of
the human race 1were removed tomor
- row the world would be absolutely
noiseless to hpmanIty. The contention
-is that the sound waves, traveling at
- a rate oj 1,090 feeta second, create
invilsible ripples in th' air justjas.. a
pool ripples when a rock is thrown
into It. The greater the force of these
1/aves the louder the sound. But there
e Is no noise until these sound- waves
a strike the sensitive nerves of the ear.
I Thus, reverting to the original propesi
a tion, the air waves themselves would
j be noiseless did they not operate in
conjunction with the human igense o1

"To die~ in the last ditch" has be.
come ones of the commonplaccs of
proverbial philosophy. The wordi
were originally used by WillIam of
Orange durIng the Dutch war of in
dependence, when he was asied if he
rdid not see that the commonwealth
was ruined. "1 shall never see the
ruin of my country," replied. the
prince, stoutly. "I shall die in the

spirit and led by such a leader, it is.
not to be wondered that the tide soon
turned and that the necessity for such
heroic measures never arose.
