There is no reason for peach
trees dying in ten years, "bearing

What they mean is "being starved
out." A peach tree, barring acci
dents, should be good for twenty
five years. It should, however,
have good cultivation, generous
feeding, and as much general at
tention as an annual crop. The
trees should be examined at least
twice a year for borers, and when
their limbs begin to die out and
look straggly, so that people ordi
narily will say that it is "played
out,!' the trees should be pruned
back severely cut way back and
new, vigorous shoots with green
leaves will put forth, and the sec
ond year thereafter a good crop
may bo looked for. There are a
great many thirty year old peach
trees in the county.

J. Bomar, who passed away last

Bomar had been in feeble health
for some time, his death was some

the end was so near.
Mr. Bomar was about 71 years

an honorable man. He has held

ON THE LOOKOUT.
I heard an interesting argument
the other day between several well
qualified citizens of the town.
"I sric a man in one of the dry
towns of East Tennessee recom
mended the use of wine in small
doses for tho general welfare of the
stomach," said one.
"Is that so?" nsked the other.
"Well, that's right. These blamed
prohibition fanatics would kill us
all if they could. Now everybody
knows that wine in small doses
won't hurt anybody."
"Sure," chipped in a third.
"Well, that's accordin'," broke
in the fourth man, who wore a
rather firm, but suppressed air.
"Accordin' to what?" indignant
ly inquired No. 1.
"Well, accordin' to what a 6mall
dose is," was the quiet but philo
Number 1, 2 and 3 looked
rather blank and scratched their
"Well," said No. 2, finally, "I
should say a small dose would be
about a teaspoonful."
"Small!" yelled No. 1. .
"Small!" moaned No. 3. "Well,
I should say it would be small! A
teaspoonful! I should say a wine
glass was small enough for any
body. Say," looking at No. 2 sus
piciously, "you must be one of
them gol darned perhibitiouists!"
"Well, you aint but blamed little
better," retorted No. 1. I tell you
that a man who can't take half a
pint three to seven times a day aint
in it. That's what I call encour
agement for the stomach."
"I don't pretend to bo a hog,"
hotly replied No. 2. "I was try-in
to tako a common sense view of it."

said No. 2. And he walked away
in a deep study, leaving me alone
to settle the question. I pass it up.
