There Are No
There are two classes of chil
dren called "lazy."
First, there is the very large
class that has energy enough
when it comes to playing ball or
jumping the rope, but develops
a tired feeling whenever the stove
wood or the broom is mentioned.
To call this "laziness" is a mere
mis-use of language. These chil
dren only wish to do the things in
which they are interested, not in
which other people are interested.
They have not yet realized that it
is good to work, and all that they
need is education that will turn
their abundant activities into use.
Then, there are those who real
ly seem lazy, who are listless,
stupid, imdifterent, who play
without enthusiasm and work only
because and when they must.
Many parents have been vexed
and troubled by these children;
but lately scientists have been
investigating this class, and they
say that the trouble is not laziness
or stupidity or obstinacy. The
Youth's Companion gives the
"There is no such thing as a
"Issy" child. The child is inter
eted, alert, bright-minded, full
of waking Curiosities about the
world into which he has come,
and endowed with an almost un
quenehable physical vivacity.
What, then, is tbe matter with
the little, inert, stupid, dull-eyed
creatures, forever at the bottom
of the class, who never put a
gqstion, or seem to pass a given
"The matter is that they are
ill. 8ome of them are. hungry,
and it is as hopeless to expect a
child to study well when he needs
food as it would be to expect a
ire that needs fuel to burn well.
The hunger may be due to an
aetual lek of food, or it may be
that the teeth are in such poor
condition that the child can not
diew, and therefore does not di.
gpet.' Or it may be that the food
otered to it at home is entirely
unsuited to its needs.
''Some of the children can not
hear well and some pan not see.
They do not complain, because
they do not known what is the
matter. They accept constant re
boke and lisefeat with the dumb
mystlflertion of ignorance. Many
ot them have never drawn one
Suatural breath sines their birth,
ewingto the presene of enlarged
tonsils and adenoids.
"Thes ohildreu can never oom
pae with their fellows, until all
hindrances have been removed."

that the animal can not eat and
digest enough of the feed to get
what it needs to sustain life, the
animal will eat n^,! ligest more
than enough of one food element
in order to obtain what it needs
of other elements. For instance,
when an animal has digest enough
corn to supply the carbohydrates
and fats needed it is still short of
the necessary amount of protein;
but if enough corn is given and
the animal is able to digest it,
enough corn will be taken to sup.
ply the necessary amount of pro
tein. In obtaining this necessary
amount of protein more carbohy
drates than is necessary must be
taken, hence these carbohydrates
are wasted. The loss, then, in
failing to balance the ration is
two-fold. 1. Feed is wasted
proper gains are not made for the
feed consumed. 2. The animal
may not be able to digest enough
of the feeds to get all the material
it requires to sustain life, or in an
attempt to do so. it may injure its
digestion or cause disease of
some other kind.
Since pratically all feeds con
tain all the materials needed, in
larger or smaller quanties, and
the average animal is able to
overcome a considerable lack of
balance in a ration, if given
enough of the feeds, we think the
loss to Southern farmers from
neglect to study the feeding prob.
lem is probably greatest in the
amount of feeds wasted; but the
loss is also great in the failure to
produce strong, vigorous animals
of good size and development for
breeding purposes.-Tait Butler

In curing [hams dry, out and
properly boine the hams; sprinkle
a little powdered saltpeter on the
feshy side; use three parts salt
and one granulated sugar; salt
and pack in a pile, or put in a
box. The third day break up
your pile and re-salt with same
salt: re-pack and let lay in bulk
for one day for every pound the
average ham weighs; hang up
and smoke for ten days with a
biekory twigs or chips. Make a
paste of black pepper and mo*
lasses and put on the flesh side;
wrap in paper and pack in a box
or barrel, putting new hay cut (in
cutting knife) 1 or 1 1.2 inches
long between the pieces to keep
them from touching. Be sure to
keep the micoe and rate out. This
curing is also fine for kreakfabt

I continually get letters fronm
farmers in the south asking for
information in regard to grow
ing sunflowers and broom-corn
and ginseng, and what not.
These letters are almost invari
ably from men who have been
growing cotton only, and whose
methods have not proved
successful, and instead of en
deavoring to intprove with the
crops they are familiar with,
they want to try some that they
iknow nothing about and the
success of whiheb with them
would be very problematical.

your conditions, and then so
arrange your farming as to give
that crop the best possible
chance in your rotation. In the 1
Cotton Belt there is no crop that E
can compete with cotton as a l
money crop if the farmer farms c
and does not merely plant '
cotton year after year on old t
dead soil with the aid of a little c
low grade fertilizer. He should r
associate in his farming the a
legumes for forage and feeding, I
and corn and oats as auxiliary l
crops, and if he farms with c
these in a good rotation and
makes manure, he will soon find t
that these auxiliary crops are I
not merely "supplies" but are t
profitable crops to grow for sale. f
The South is rapidly getting a
into the Corn Belt, for Louisiana
and Mississippi have corn to sell, c
and when this takes place all a
over the South the feeding of a
farm animals will naturally c
follow, and bigger cotton crops
will be made on less land.-W.

The Roads to
"A road between two import
ant towns, which are, perhaps,
already connected by a raiway or
by a trolley line, may seem to
owners of automobiles to be of
more importance than the more1
utilitarian roads leading back in.
to the country away from the
railroad. At the risk of seeming
to be officially actuated by sel8h
motives -however, 1 will it
at ap i abter ban. road of this
character is not the one that,
generally speaking, should re
ceive first attention." There is
just about a peck of good sense in
this statement of President W.
W. Finley's. We have insisted
time and again, and wish to re.
peat, that it is folly to begin road
building with these interstate
and "from city to city"
higsways. The road that you
are interested in is the one you
must travel to get to your market
town, to the school-house, the
court-house, the church. And
these are the roads that need
frst attention. Begin at the
towns and railway stations and
improve the roads that run from
them to.the neighboring country.
WThen these are made psasbl,
there will be time enough to be.
gin talking of the big "high,
ways," that are more ornament.
ai but of less practical value.

The funeral services were con- d
ducted by Rev. C. T. Corkern
and the body was put away be
side his mother and sister in the
cemetary at Richardson, La.
Again our community has been
saddened by the sure reaper,
Death, who this time claimed
Miss May Magee after a few
days struggle with pneumonia.
May was the sixteen and one.
half year old daughter of J. T.
Magee. She was just blooming
into womanhood with many -
bright prospects before her, t
possessing the coveted gift of
entering into the lives of those j
with whom she met thus making a
many friends who are made sad
because of her death.
We can't refrain from speak
ing of this young girl's Christ- I
life. She was one of the most
4vet Christians it has been our
I loVttie*.- This fact was proven
by her every day life and by her
testimony during her recent ill
ness. Her pastor. 'Rev. C. T.
(3orkern, while preachig he
funeral said: "I have never con:
duczted the funeral services of
one whom I felt better satisfied
of their being prepared to die
than this young girl." When she
knew she must die in her own
quiet way she kissed ea*h mem
ber of her family good-bye and
said; "I want you, if you nhaven't
already done so, to give your
hearts to God and meet me in
heaven." Reader, would you die
that wat Only those in Christ
There are many, many good
things we could say of May's
modesty, gentleness, and kind
ness but to say she was one of
the Lord's choicest flowers and
that He saw fit to transplant it
from this earthly garden infected
with weeds and thorns to the
heavenly garden where it may
bloom in perfection, is the great
est thing we can say for anyone.
She will be missed in the liter
ary and Sunday Schools, the
church and in the home by the
father, step mother, three broth
ers and six sisters but she knew,
"in whom she had believed and
was persuaded that He was able
to keep that which she had com
