The Kind You Have Always Bought
18 ABLE ALWAYS TO
How tho United Bt?t<s Is the Most in
dependent Nation on the Face
of the Earth.
The following editorial is from The
New York Sun. It is all true. It 1b
also true that more than any part of
the United States the South is inde
pendent, in that we can raioe mo:e
kinds of crops and have more kinds of
"It I." >robable that $100 per capita is
a moderate estimate of the value of
the food annually consumed by tho
people of the United States. In other
words, the grocery and provision bill
of this country approximates $8,000,
000,000 a year. The impossibility of as
certaining with accuracy the money
valuo of these sources of table supply
in which no commercial transaction is
involved?the farrier's kitchen gar
den, the fish and tho game of those
who eat what they catch and shoot; and
tbe beef, mutton and pork killed and
eaten by those who raise the animals?
leaves any statement of the cost of
feeding the nation a matter rather of
estimate than of known amount.
Somo idea of our absolute econoraio
Independence, so far as food products
are concerned, is obtained by a realiza
tion of the fact that about 97,5 per
cent, of the $8,000,000,000 grocery and
provision bill is supplied from domestic
sources. If the remaining 2.5 per cent.,
obtained by importation, be analyzed,
It is seen that a half dozen items, such
as coffee, cocoa, sugir, spices and
tropical fruits, represent more than
three-quarters of the foreigh supply.
The importation of artloles which
might be or even could be raised in
this country is probably less than one
half of 1 per cent, of the total value of
our annual consumption.
Not only does our actual domestic
supply of alimentary substances exceed
In Its percentage that of any other na
tion or people rightly claiming lo be
civilized, but there is the further fact
that in point of variety our menu is al
most unlimited. But the question of
cookery ie a side Issue depending
on individual taste. But tbe fact re
mains that we have the food in limitless
quantity and infinite variety, the pro
duct of American farms, gardens, or
chards, fields, forests, river?, lakes
In addition to this generous supply
of our domestic needs, we sold toother
counties, last year, about $900,000,000
worth of surplus crop. It may bo re
marked that we also have a few acres
of land not yet under cultivation."

A VERY CLOSE CALL.
"I stuck to my engine, although
every joint ached and every nerve was
racked with pain." writes C. W. Bell
amy, a locomotive fireman, of Burling

out appetite and all run down. As I
was about to give up, I got a bottle of
Electric Bitters, and after taking it, I
felt a9 well as I ever did In my life."

An Old Favorite \
ODE ON A GRECIAN URN
By John Kent/
HOTJ still unravlshed bride of quietness!
Thou foster-child of Silence und slow Time,
Sylvan historian, who canst thus express
A flowery tnle more sweetly than our rhyme:
What leaf-fringed legend haunts about thy shape
Of deities or mortals, or of both,
In Tempo, or the dales of A ready?
What men or gods are these? What maidens loath? \>
What mad pursuit? What Btruggle to escape?
Whut pipes und timbrels? What wild ecstasy?
Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard
Are sweeter; therefore, ye soft pipes, play on;
Not to the sensual oar, but, more endeured,
l'lpe to the spirit ditties of no tone.
Fair youth beneath the trees, thou canst not leave
Thy song, nor over can those trees l>e bare.
Hold lover, never, never canst thou kiss,
Thouub winning near the goal; yot do not grieve:
She cannot fado, though thou hast not thy bliss;
Forever wilt thou love, and she be fair!
au, happy, happy boughs! that cannot shed
Your leaves, nor ever bid the spring ndleu;
And buppy melodist, unwcarl-cd,
Foraver piping songs forever new;
More happy lovol more happy, happy love!
Forever warm and still to bo enjoyed,
Forever pnnting and forever young;
AU bronthing human passion far above,
That leaves a heart high-sorrowful and cloyed,
A burning forehead, and n parching tongue.
Who are those coming to the sacrifice?
To what green altar, O mysterious priest,
Lead'st thou that heifer lowing at the skios,
And all her silken flanks with garlands drest?
What, little town by river or sea-shore
Or mountain luillt with peaceful citfldel,
Is emptied of its folk this pious morn?
And, little town, thy streets forevennorc
Will silent be, and not a soul to tell
Why thou art desolate can e'er return.
O Attic shape! Fair attitude! with brode
Of marble men and maidens overwrought,
With forest branches and the trodden weed;
Thou, silent form! dost tense us out of thought
As doth eternity. Cold Pastoral!
When old ago shall this generation waste,
Thou shalt remain, in midst of other woe
Than ours, a friend to man, to whom thou any'st,
'Beauty is truth, truth beauty,"?that Is all
Only ll' Bults 'IV11.
Ihero is llltlo or no difference in the
appearance of flour, but there is all the
difference in tho world in tho results.
