PICKENS S. C.
ONE NEW YEAR's EVE.
Thle swish of a blue dress, a faint
breath of violets, as in passing, and he
felt rather than saw Marie Summer
fild go by.
Standing a little apart from the knots
of merry young people thronging Ile
pleasant rooms, he was coisciouis of a
thread of pain running through the last
night of the old year, touching only
Miss Summerfield and himself.
By he, I mean Leigh Reyburn, the
owner of the old fashioned, low-roomed
grange beneath whose roof the young
people of Gladbrook had gathered to
keep a merry watchnight. With music
and laughter and gay repartee they
meant to dance a welcome to the joyous
New Year without much thought for
the staid old twelve-month which had
served them so faithfully.
But Leigh moved uneasily, sending
imploring glances after the blue grown,
all to no purpose. Marie was absorbed
with the fascinating company of Mal
rice Davenport, and was smiling her
sweetest-and Marie could smile di
vinely.-and entertaining him mimira
Reyburn was imking hard, and, it
must be confessed, uncharitably. lad
he worshiped and petted and lived for
Miss Stii meriln-'d these two blessed
sun1lit years, o have 11011 and hap
ness go into the ganve of tlie frail ol
year leaving nothing but memories?
What was that M iiic was sining to
the sweet-t onied guitar stie ield so dainl
tily, stral)ped inl phice with a bhle ri'b
't'ing out the old, ring in the new:
The year is dying, let it go;
Ring in the new; ring inl the new."
H1er voice seemed to falter a littie on
the repeat as it tell to a St ent adteince.
Was it possible sIt was tIhinking of the
old so tenderly--t lie old love, for inl
stance? Ah! well he0 did not know.
The yule log had burned out a week
ago, but he had not Ile heart to take
up thte silv' ry ashes from tl e ltI, red
brick hearth . as yet. l ver since that
other night he hat kept his vow amtI

At the cry "train, train," everybody
began to bustle about. Friends, bag

discriminatiely, but Leigh wias very still.
Ile could hear his anxious heart beat
out its suspense in great suftocating
leaps, as the fateful ttain thundered in.

Somnething fr'oin nothing you cant't
take. Most of us are beginntintg to
t'eahtze the truth of' thlis~ trite sayintg in
regard to mt'ost. thtings about ust. It is
a poor farmer whio does nolt retalize
that lie can not take thte gramt frtomt

niothtintg to them without some timte,
soonerdi or htatei', gettintg to the entd ot

nothting there, either. If' your hent:
arec to lay eggs, they must have sonme
thiig to work with ; they must ge
egg-lormaing elemients fromt some souirc<
or other'. In recenit years the practi

his egg sutpply in the winter by carefu
stutdy of egg-prodlucing foods. Pronut
neunt amtong these must be p~lae<
greeni cut-b'ne, a food that is eatsilj
anti cheaply obtained andl thuat is un
dotibtodly the greatest egg-priodluce;
ever fed to hensb. The bone, whet
finely cut while it is still greeni, 8sup
plies that element of animtal food 5<
nieeded and~ relished b~y fowls, taking1
the place of the bugs and worms whticl
the hents devour so greedily upon thi
range. Moreover, the bone suipplie
the mtineral matter needed for eg;
formation, the lime, the phosphate
Ithe magnesia, and is, in short, an ides
egg food. Whin we consider hm~
cheaply the bones can be procure<]
and how little trouble it is to prepar
them for the fowls, it Is diflcult to u:E

PROLIFICACY VERSUS PRODUC
Correspondence Cotton Plant.
Although the terms, prolific and
pro(luctive, have both been deIllned as
nianing fruitful, it by no menns fol
lows Ihatt they are to be regarded as
synonyoliOls, meaning one and the
same thing, or that they are inter.
chlnIgelble, the one with the other.
In the case of vegetation in general,

plhospliate, 600 pounds of cotton seed
ineal and 400 poun i of nmriate of
'lie former lolnbination would tend
to increase prolineacy and by so doing
would at the Earie tilne tentd to inlerease
prodtiuctiveness allittle ; while the lattor
combination would tend largely toward
Micreasing 1)1od(u.tiveiess'; whether
prolilicacy was inereased or not. Phos
phoric acid is good in its place, but it
cannot be mado to take the place of
either potasi or nitrogen ; prolilicacy
is not evervthing ; quantity and qual
ity rank ahead of it.
