It Pays to Advertise In the Rising Son VOLUME X. MR. T. B. CARTER. The subject of this sketch Is Thompson Browning Carter, born in Boone county, Mo., March, 1856, A. D. Like many thousands of his race was born under the "Iron Hand." When his master at the close of the war told him he was free he took to him self wings and flew away to the city of Columbia and there became a bank employee. He held this posi tion for four years. A better place with wider possibilities was his watchword, therefore, he became an employe at the State university. Filled that place with credit until the First National bank at Galnsville, Texas, demanded his services at a higher salary, but like all true and tried Missourlans he was compelled to return to her soli. He was appointed custodian of the University College of Medicine of Missouri at Kansas City which post tlon he filled with credit for thirteen years. A change in the institution naturally changed his fortune so he cast his lot with the U. S. Customs and three years later was appointed 4 one of the custodians of the states property located at Jefferson City which position he now holds. There There were many applicants for tills position but Attorney General H. S. Hadley appointed him and he is fill ing the place with credit and is giv ing perfect satisfaction to all con cerned. Mr. Carter feels that he owes much to Gen. Hadley. We think a great deal of Dr. Carter and his amiable wife, Mrs. Carter, who was Miss Winnie Crosby. She 1b a great help to Mr. Carter in his efforts to rise above the tide, the wind and the gale. Mrs. Carter has a very beau tiful home in Kansas City at 1210 Highland avenue.

Some thief had entered his den that night And stole his instrument of might, And mayhap pawned It for a meal. Ho cried aloud In sore dismay: "A hundred plunks I'll give today To he who brings my weapon home!"

On all the great lakes of China are found floating Islands, which are enor mous rafts of bamboo, overlaid with earth, and upholding above the sur face of the water pretty houses and gardens. They are, in fact, aquatic farms, bearing crops of rice and veg etables, large sails being attached to the dwelling house as well as to each corner of the Island whenever it is desired to move about. After gath ering a crop of grain or garden truck from the surface of the lake, the float farmer casts his net Into the water and from their depths brings up a supply of fish for his family.

In the State. X HMD Kit W iiilffi The Study of Soils. There U no study that wlli prove niort- profit a hie to the farmer than the study of soils. Kverywhore agri culturists are coming to realize the importance of this study and are giv ing to It the attention thnt It deserves. I'l nearly every state In tho Villon tho tnte government has taken up tho matter as has also tho National Gov ernment. When the soli survey work or the United States Oovermont was begun on Its present large scale there wore many who believed thnt this ex penditure of money was In part tin locessary. They could not see how the mere knowing about the soils ihould Improve its condition. They could not seo why drawing maps of states and representing thereon tho various kinds of soils could prove of any financial valiio to tho agricultur ists of such states. It was only after a year's work anil after the soil sur vey of some states had boon partly completed that tho real results began to be seen. The llrst stales in which the work has boon partly completed Is Illinois. Investigations of the differ ent soil surveys has brought to light the condition of tho soils in wliolo counties, and has shown what is need ed in those soils to make ihem valu able. This could not bo foreseen by the critics of the soil surveys. The knowing of tho condition of tho soils lias resulted In the finding out of a way to greatly increase their value. The soil survey In Illinois lias demon strated the fact that there are mil lions of ae res of laud only partly pns ilucllve heciui.se of the largo amount of acid In the soli Having learned this fact was an easy matter for tho scientists to find u remedy. They know that It merely requires an ap plication of llinu to make those soils double In value. The Increased value of Illinois soils alone, due to this dis covery, and the application of a rem edy, will he greater than the entire expense of all soil surveys and soil studios in tho United States. Weston Sinclair. Buffalo Co., Wis. Film Moisture. Film moisture Is the moisture In the soil that Just surrounds each part Ida of sand or sell with a thin coat of wa ter. The film around one partlclo touches the films of adjacent particles. The attraction of tho particle draws the film tight around It and each new particle above that one does the same. When a film of wilier touches a soil particle above It that diy partlclo draws the water with great, forco to cover Itself. Tho film of water Is drawn from the soil particle below, but In turn pulls up the next particle film below It, or, rather, the soil pBr tlclo does that by its attraction. So tho water films work up toward tho surface of the ground. Wo call that capillary attraction. When the films covering the particles reach the sur face of the soli they become exposed to tho air and the moisture on the top of the 111m Is evaporated or turned Into gas. Tho films below push up to supply the need caused by the vacancy in a part of the water film collection. When those- films are disturbed by tho cultivator tho upward movement of the film moisture is stopped till the soil particles have settled back In place and new films havo worked around tho soil particles once moro brought into touch with the film wa ter below. This la why we cultivate ground to prevent tho loss of soil water. T,,uTTope that heaven is a place where the suburbs aru not in tho hands of real estate agents.
