It Pays to Advertise In the Rising Son
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
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. May his life be as
useful in the future as it has been
In the past. Mr. Carter is also a
prominent Mason as well as a prom
inent and tireless worker in Allen

Life on the Water.
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.
Odors of the Mountains.
If you notice a strong spicy and
"woodsy" odor about any woman these
days, do not imagine that she has
adopted a new perfume. It is balsam
that you smell, for the lady has just
returned from the Adlrondacks and
brought with ber a balsam pillow as
a souvenir of her stay In the moun
tains. Of course she JJammed the
pillow into a corner of ber trunk
when she packed up to come home,
and equally, of course, the strong
smell of balsam permeated every
thing. It is as much a mark of the
returning vacationist as is the coat
of tan. New York Press.

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.

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
T,,uTTope that heaven is a place
where the suburbs aru not in tho

It Is more or less difficult for some
people to do their duty thanks to
the vigilance of the customs officials.
