General Sir Ian Hamilton, K. C. B.
Makes a Striking Declaration for
Total Abstinence.
Gen. Sir Ian Hamilton, K. C. B.,
was the principal speaker at the Gen
eral Assembly of the -Presbyterian
church held in the Scottish capital and
delivered an address which was a
striking declaration for the cause of
temperance. Sir Ian, it will be re
membered, pledged himself to total ab
stine ace just a year ago, and it is
candidly stated by personal interview
ers that twelve months of water-drink
lag have not in the least impaired the
health. soured the happy disposition or
diminished the cheery outlook on life
of the distinguished general. Incident
ally his pledge has had a most benefi
cial effect on the rank and tile of the
army and has given a new stimulus i
to temperance in both services. In
opening his address, Sir Ian said he
had come there to strike a blow for
Scotland. He thought the finest stroke
for Scotland was that of Bruce at
Bannockburn, when he raised his tat
tleax and crashed the casque of Sir
Henry de Bohun as if it were a nut
shell. But he believed as line a de
liverance for Scotland was to be
gained by dealing a stroke at another
sort of cask-the cask of whiskey. No
longer advancing at the head of the
English army, that cask was in the
middle of their own camp, and it was
there poisoning and lowering the vi.
tality and pride and honor of the
truest, bravest troops to be found any
Continuing, the general said that
he thought that they in the army
were rather showing the way to the
civil population. He believed honest
ly that any mother sending her son
into the army could do so with the as
surance that her son would run a less
chance of getting a taste for drink
than he would in most civil occupa
tions. These were no fancies of his,
but they were supported by figures.
India was a most astonishing case.
In the Indian army there were 47 per
cent. who were temperance men, at
home there were 26 per cent., and
they were increasing every year. To
put it in another way, the number of
temperance men in the army, taking
the past two or three years, had in
creased at the rate of 2,500 a year.
From the medical department of the
war office he learned that during the
past twenty years the number taken
to hospital per thousand had fallen in
India to the extraordinary extent of
from 10 to 1, and in England from
2.6 to 7. The head of the medical
service told him that, directly and in
directly, he considered that the great
er temperance was very largely re
sponsible fcor it. Disease had de
creased as temperance increased. It
was his opinion that the enemy were
on the run, and that they could afford
to be bold; and he believed that if
anyone could lower the drinking in
Scotland by 20 per cent. he would do
more good than by adding another
province to our empire.
Saloon Has Much Better Chance to
Exhibit Its Fruits Among Work
ing Class Than Among Rich.
The Christian Evangelist contends
that the liquor business is the great
est foe of the workingman, and that
he is the greatest loser by the sa
loon. The rich man, it says, can get
along fairly well. "The money he
spends for liquor is not a serious mat
ter to him. He runs no risk of los
ing his job for drunkenness. His
family is not often brought to starva
tion or beggary, and when he gets
seriously intoxicated his valet or the
servant at the club can take care of
him, Of course, even among the rich
a large proportion of the divorces are
produced, directly or indirectly, by
hisky. But among the laboring
classes the saloon has its best oppor
tunity to exhibit its fruits. Its effect
on character is no worse, but its
economic results are vastly greater
and worse."

Among Other Things Planter Should
Study Good Agricultural Liter
ature and Diversify.
(By G. H. Alford.)
I submit the foiowing as a piatforml
for cotton farmers to stand on dur
i n the year 19121:
First. We will write to the Secre
tary of Agriculture. Washington. 1.
C., the congVessman from our district.
and our experiment station for agri
cultural literature, and subscribe tor
at least two good farm papers. We
will study this literature carefully.
Second. We will clean up our
farms until they are as neat as pins.
We will burn all rubbish in the waste
places in our fields and around our
farms. We will make our farms look
like some one lives on them. We will
not leave any places for boll weevils,
minks. oppossums, and varmints of
many kinds to hide.
Third. We will quit the one crop
system and resort to diversified farm
ing and stock raising. We will grow
every farm product necessary for
home consumption and some to spare.
We will prepare to live at home
and board at the same place.
If the boll weevil destroys our
crop or the speculator forces the price
down below the cost of production,
starvation will not stare us in the
Fourth. We will not buy anything
on credit except the actual necessities
of life. We will practice strict econ
omDy until we get out of debt and then
we will pay cash as we go.
Fifth. We will thoroughly pulver
ize our soil a little deeper than it
bas ever been broken before. We
will have our soil like an ash heap
b,!fore we plant our crop.
Sixth. We will make full use of all
available fertilizing materials on our
farms and on soil that responds we
will make free use of commercial
Seventh. We will study the fer
tilizer question and endeavor to pro.
portion cottonseed meal and 16 per
I cent acid pohsphate according to the
probable needs of the soil in each
Eighth. We will plan to get ahead
of the boll weevil and also obtain a
good price for at least a part of our
cotton crop by planting a very early
variety - early in the spring.
Ninth. We will plant only as many
acres of cotton as we can cultivate
Tenth. We will keep more and
better stock, increase the yield per
acre on our farms, use stronger teams
and more labor-saving farm imple.
"The crowd hiss me, but I applaud
myself at home when I contemplate
my money in my treasure chest."
Ho it is, then, that no one lives
content with his condition, whether
reason gave it him or chance threw
it his way?
But a great majority of mankind
. . -cry, "No sum is enough, because
you are esteemed in proportion to
what you possess."
If length of time makes poems bet
ter, as it does wine. I would fain
know how many years will stamp a
value upon my writings.
Hence it Is that we rarely find a
man who can say that he has lived
happy, and, content with his past
life, can retire from the world like a
satisfied guest.
"Even the expert tax-dodger hez to
o some."
"Some men try fur fame an' git
thirty days."
"Anyone with ha'f an' eye kin see
afterwards where he's he'n a fool."
"Most ev'rybuddy would like to re
write the Bible to suit his partic'lar
"Ef on'y ha'f our bad pennies would
return we'd be richer than what we
be now."
"When some folks look the situa
tion square in the face they want te
do it frum around the corner."
Cause of High Prices.
Uncle James Wilson, secretary of
agriculture, declares that our popu
lation is increasing faster than our
food production and says serious
troule lies in the unnecessary deter
ioration of eastern farms. A farmer
gets good prices now but it costs
twice as much to grow things as it
did ten years ago.

There are cnough facts in this book

"The Maoris of New Zealand. accord
Ing to Captain Cook, were at the time
when he first visited the island almost
perfect in 1physique. Even the old
men. he states, possessed the endur
ance of youth. They numbered then
over 120.0.00. Alcohol and tobacco
found their way to them as the island
became inhabited by the white race.
Men. women and children began to

believing it a blessing. Today the
Maoris are a race of physical and
moral degenerates, numbering only
41,000." Thousands of tippling m'em

if not as visibly, degenerating.
Swallowing the Farm.
ly homeless man with the chro
matic' nose. while you are stirring up
the sugar in a 10-cent glass of gin let
ne give you a fact ta wash down with
it. You may say you have longed for
years for the free, Independent life of
the farn:er,. but have never been able
to get money enough together to buy
a farm. llut that is just where you
are mistaken. For some years you
have been drinking a good improved
farm at the rate of 100 square feet a
gulp. If you doubt this statement,
figure it out yourself. An acre of
land contains 43,560 square feet. Es
timating, for convenience, the land at
$43.5G an acre, you will see that it
bringn 'he land to just 1 mill per
square foot. Now pour down the fiery
dos? -nd niagine you are swallowing
a strawbcrry patch. Call in five of
your ir!ends and have them help you
gull) dwu that 500-foot garden. Go
on a pro!nnged spree some day and
see Low long it requires to swallow
enough pasture land to feed a cow.
Put down that glass of gin; there Is

Community Cotton Growing.
A general study of the subject b:

mixing of varieties is a serious ob
stacle to the improvemoent of the c(t

planted only one kind of cotton th
crossing of varieties in adjacent fie!dh
and the mixing of seed in gins wotil
be avoided, selection could be madc

Removal of Warts.
Warts are a very common cattle
afilicticn. They may be removed in
several ways-cut off with a pair of
scissors, twisted off with the fingers,
or deadened by tying a strong silk
thread, a rubber band or a horse bair
around the growth close to the ani
nral's body. After the wart has been
removed the roots should be cauter
ized or iodine applied to prevent a re.
newal of the growth.
Danger of Overfeeding.
Dcn't overfced thbe steers in the feca

and don't crowd them too much at any
time. A steer can make good use Of
a certain amount of feed, but whEn
that amount is exceeded the waste is
