Farmers Are Kings. . . Their kingdoms are farms, tbeir body-guard is their faithful guardian who constantly accompanies them on tbeir ways to protect them from all harm and danger. Tbeir servants are the domestic animals to assist them when ever Deeded. Tbeir subjects are wbo pay their duly tribute for taking care of them and also furnish tbem with the necessaries of life, as eggs, butter, meat and the like. But their -enemies are numerous besides those that are on the farms. Farmers lives are indeed nicely provided, they make It so. The soil is unexhaustible in so many nice things," but they have to dig for it. ture has io store for you almost anything you could wish for, so many different kinds of grains, vegetables and lucious fruits too numerous to mention, and your linen made of flax and hemp, as in many countries, you ought to be proud of your vocation of life and give thanks unto the LKrd. An Ideal Orchard Southeast or south slope for an orchard. Never have it in a draw or bottom ground. High ground is more fruitful and stands the winter better. Sandy sub soil is the best, have the ground plow ed deep then the roots will grow deep and the trees will stand more dry weather. Manure-mulch is bad, be cause the roots will grow too shallow, rotten straw or litter is best. Have a windbreak. to protect the trees, etc. now to select the best kind of trees for poor climate and soil to do well, and how to select the right kind of trees to bear well is a very important question. Some trees will not bear fruit unless you get the right kind of trees to go with to fertilize them, the same as jn strawberries. Some peo pie believe in planetary influence and say trees set out in barren sign, a scanty crop will result. If set out in a fruitful sign a full crop will follow. Never set out trees in freezing and windy weather. Make sure to use a Knife with a keen edge to cut out all the bruised and broken roots and cut out all damaged and weak branches, and then cut back, at least, one-half of t he prey ious growth of the branches, have the holes large enough to straighten out the roots good. Some plant their trees in subsoil well en riched with good rotten manure. Never let any fresh manure ccme in contact with the - roots, don't plant them too deep and run the soil well in among the roots and stamp good while filling up. Some think it best to plant in spring while others prefer fall planting, as the time is not so pressing as in spring. Farmers ought to be more ambitious about orchards in order to do justice to themselves. This is not a fruit country. People said it was no farming country years ago, but don't let that talking fool you out of it, better try anyway. Peter Mosdloch, The best men we have ever known have been men who said very little about how good they were. In fact, they didn't make any pretens'e of be ing so much better than other folks. And these people who are forever pa rading their piety make a fellow tir ed. V. iie!! : ::ian puts on that holier-than-thou luok, and makes so much noise telling about what a perfection of piety lie possesses, you'd better watch himN in "a trade. True piety doesn't go on dress parade. It doesn't get on the housetop with a megaphone to talk about itself to the surrounding country. True piety is accompanied by a spirit of humility. And it is a little bit safer when you are dealing with one of these . sanctimonius fel lows who boast about their piety," to look a little close to see whether all the big potatoes aren't on the top of the measure. -Marion Record.

" , " Watcher insisted that a cancus and a conference were the same thing. . "You're wrong," replied Reeder. "A conference is merely a meeting at which there is. an interchange of views. A caucus is arneeting called to put a political party on record on a public question. The word caucus takes its oriffion in the Indian word, cawcawwassougli, hich means one who pushes on. Cannon must do all kinds of pushing on to get the Repub licans Pa. line for his program to keep Oklahoma and Indian territory out of statehood." 'JWho told you about that Indian word?" asked watcher. "Naaa. webster," replied Reeder. A duck wbo had faithfully stuck to business during the sunmer and laid several dozen large, fawn colored eggs, complained that she was not appre ciated. "See that ben over there? said the duck; "she has not laid so many eggs as I have, nor so big, but she has books written about her and verses composed in ber honor, while nobody says a word about me." "The trouble with you is," said a- wise Buff Leghorn cock that was standing near, "that you do not tell the public what you nave done. You lay an egg and waddle off without saying a word, while that sister of mine never lays one without letting everybody know it. If you want to cut any ice in thi community you must learn to adver tise." Trov Chief. t 4 PORT ARTHUR ROUTE "Straight as the Crow Flies."
