To all Officers. Secretaries, Uult Dt-

We desire to cull your attention to
the daugor of cotton seed being Im
ported into your community having
wed perhaps from regions in TVxa
infested with the link IkiIJ worm. We
am ud vised that some seed from theae
infected districts have already gono
into parts of West Tens. Already
numerous findings of the pink poll
worm eggs have been discovers! in
peed from Infested districts.
If any traces of the pink boll worm
i-oiild bo found In seed shipped to
your county It would moan that you
would be placed under a very rigid
yuarantlno against shipping your
cotton or cotton socd. It would also
mean a material decline In land and
real estate values. In fact It would
be a real calamity. T.et us cona'der
this seriously and If you or your
neighbors have received seed from

CLOSE observers Id the ranks of tUe
medical profession have noted one
very Interesting fact concerning I ha

engendered at this time of Joyous

certain freshness It given to the dally
round, differences of opinion ere sunk,
and a charltabU spirit prevails. Is
It, by the way. hoping for too much,
asks the lancet, that the season of
good fellowship should leave some
lasting effect upon the manners and
methods of all?
It may not be easy to trace exactly
why the sense of exhilaration and
well-being comet with the advent of

Most Beautiful Songs.

dates Any Others
TIIK ancient Christina carol. "Holy
Night" Is Herman In it origin
und Is considered by many persons to
be the most bcuutlful of all Christ
ma carols. It has sometime been
ascribed to Martin Luther, but the
consensus of eipert opinion la that it
Is much older than his time and is one
of the oldest of German folk songs.
The carol "(Jod Rest Ye Merry,
Gentlemen," Is English In Its origin
and date bnck to about the beginning
of the Seventeenth century, although
the author of the words and tho com
poser of the music are unknown. The
flue old melody sung to this poem pos
sesses all the best qualifications of a
sterling hymn tune and will probably
last as long aa tho verses with which
It is always associated.
The carol "Draw N'tgu. Immanuei,"
It one of the oldest pieces of coherent
music In existence, and both the word
and music far antedate any of the oth
er. The music le an o'd French mel
ody, dated from the Thirteenth cen
tury, although, of course. It has been
harmonized to conform with more
There Is a most curious but beauti
ful musical effect at the close of this
carol. The words of "Draw Nigh, Im
manuei," are about 10i year older
thuu the tuuslc, being takeu from the
Mozarabie breviary of tho Twelfth cen
tury, and it Is generally believed that
they were taken from the liturgy of
the early Christian af Toledo. Spalo,
