We would suggest to our citizens.
that we form an independent mli:ary
company in this town, one for our home
protection and a'. the same time learn h
something about military. This town
could raise at lea-t one hundred men
that would be willing to drill every
afternoon for an hour: so as, if we were
ever called on to defend our country.
we would know something, and when LL
we enlisted in the United States army. .)
it would take a very short while to get or
in shape. We know that it would be G
ruination to a great many of us to enlist
now and maybe stay in camp a year or
more, and :hen be sent home to find
oar business gone and posterity staring
us in the face, and for that reason the "
most of us will wait until we are forced
into service. But, we can at least pre
nare ourselves to a great extent at
home, and too, it will be good exercise.
Of course, we hope that the time will
never come when we are called to
arms, but no one knows what is ahead at
of us. We have good military men o
here that could drill us, and we know
they be glad to learu us what. we do
not know. The editor will head tne list,
so come in boys. and let us be soldiers'

Attention Farmers. to
n The attention of the farmers are .
called to the fact that there are two f i
very serious diseases found in our cot- tr
ton fields in this county. especially on
J the light sandy lands. These two dis of
easas are cotton wilt, or "block-root," i M
and root-knot. I i
I will venture to say that these two
n, diseases alone, cost the farmers of this -
r, county, annually eight thousand dol
lars, and from my own observation I e
believe this is a very safe statement to da
)d make Why should this condition ex- de
b ist now? I believe in my own opinion, m
. that these diseases can be controlled he
absolutely by the pioper methods of! ly
harm management, that is, by diversi- Ith
fication, deep fall plowing, and proper th
seed selection, and by planting a w'iltm
eresisting variety o~ he infested lands. th
When the plants lt suddenly or the! sti
rleaves yellow and fail off without ap wI
o parent reason. and'wilt is to be inspect ni
ned. If the freshly ulant is pulled and ito
mthe inner wood of the stem or root is Ire
found blackened, the disease is almost s
ecertain to be wilt. Where root-knot ro
leoccurs with wils the injury from the !f i
elatter is greatly increased. Root-knot! mn
r itself does not show on the above be
ground partoftheplant except thro ugh 1b
its indirect injury, andi hence is fre- .cm
2e quently overlooked. tn
ee It is desirable that tile farmer know!
t with certainty there is root-knot on his
land. To tell accurately whether you of
have root-knot pull up about midsum- ('1
mer, a stalk of okra, tomato. or Cauta- 0'
-lope and you will notice the sweling or Pt
to alls on the roots, and in almost every bi
of Ease you may rest assured that your .j
land has root-knot. w
Now, here's what I want. I want
e every man in this cotunty to let me be
a- know if he has wilt in his cotten or' m
ly either root-knot.. Just send me a cara g
stating that I have found wilt in my i
cotton or I haste found root-knot on my Ici

Molly Foss was one of seven girls
who had grown up together in Easton.
Molly alone had shown no signs of
losing her heart. She had studied
nursing. And, of course, she might
have gone on nursing peaceably for
ever had not Dr. Richard Randall
come to town.
Molly apparently did not recipro
cate Dr. Richard Randall's devotion.
The first to speak to Molly about it
was Carrie Smith, who had been Car
rie Waters. Carrie's husband had had
an attack of pneumonia, and Molly
had come to help Carrie out-and Doc
tor Randall was the doctor. One
night she told her friend just what she
thought of her indifference to the
"Molly, my dear," she said, "I am
going to speak to you plainly. Let me
tell you it is a great thing to have the
devotion of a man who is interested
in the same things you are. Think it
over, Molly, dear."
It was Helen Lake who spoke the
next word to Molly about Doctor Rich
ard. "You ought to be mighty thank
ful, Molly Foss," Helen said, "to have
a man like Doctor Randall. He Is so
exactly the right size for you." Helen
A week or two later Molly was call
ing on Betty Arnold Wister, whose
husband, Peter, had brought her much
love and a salary of $15 a week.
"Molly," said Betty, "The slightest
mischance would send us both to the
poorhouse. Doctor Randall is the most
prosperous person in Easton."
Grace McPherson overtook Molly
a few days later. "Molly," she said,
"you may think it is none of my busi
ness and I am awfully silly, but you
know I've seen quite a lot of Tom
Sears lately, and I like him very much.
But Sundays he just stays at home
and smokes, and when he takes me
home from evening meeting he al
ways waits outside the church door.
I feel so wicked, Molly! Dr. Richard
Randall comes to church every Sun
day. I envy you, Molly."
Gertrude Fiske Ingraham called on
Molly on purpose to deliver her mes
sage. "I am going to tell you frankly,"
she said, "that you don't half appre
ciate Dr. Richard Randall's family con
nections. I know a girl who lives in
Rye, where his family came from,
and she said his mother had just read
a paper before the women's club on
the mistake It was for relatives to
come to live with a young couple. I
vow I never spoke of this before, but

Grandmother Ingraham and Cousin

Molly's dearest friend, Lou Thomp
son, who was to be married in June,
came to Molly a few weeks before the
wedding. "Molly," she said, "I know
you'll understand why I tell .you this,
for I'm doing it not to hurt John, but
for your own sake. I love John, but
he's so forgetful of little things that
sometimes he almost breaks my heart.
He doesn't take off his hat as soon as
he comes into the house-and things
like that, you know. I never dreamed
of speaking of this before. Until
you've had an experience like mine
you won't know that manners can be
more aggravating than anything else
In the world. And you ought to know
how Important they are. Molly, for
Dr. Richard Randall has the best
manners I ever saw in any man In all
Then Molly unburdened herself.
"Dear Lou," she said, "Richard Ran
dall is too perfect. He Is interested
in the right thing, hi Is the right size,
he has a good Income, he's got the
best kind of habits, and the best kind
of relatives, and he's eugenic, and
fatherly and generous, and he has the
best disposition In the world. And.
to cap the climax, he has absolutely
flawless manners. Lou, I am not per
fect myself, and I'm not going to mar
ry a man who is. If I ever did a
thing that wasn't quite right, or ac
cepted, you know, Richard would
never say a word, but I would feel
his reproach to the end of my days.
If I could only find one single little
human failing in him I would marry
him, but I won't marry a perfect man,
and If I were you, Lou Thompson,
I'd be mighty thankful that John does
sometimes forget to take off his hat."
Dr. Richard Randall continued In
his devotion and Molly Foss continued
in her indifference until early last
July. On the Fourth they were In
vited to dinner several miles from
Easton. That night as they were driv

Randall asked Molly Foss to marry

said yes without a moment's hesita
They were married in September
and lived even more happily than
their friends had predicted. Richard
was perfectly satisfied with Molly and
Molly was perfectly satisfied with
Richard: but one day, six months
after the wedding, Richard looked at
his wife very seriously and asked,
"How was it that you said yes so
suddenly on the way home from tin

"Dearest Richard," Molly said, kiss
ing him, "it was because you ate youl'
peas with a spoon."
