This ls ono of the adventures that I think you'll wuut to hear that the boy and girl had who were on their way to the House of Secrets-that long, long, but vory Interesting Jour ney. ? It was at Mother Gossip's. There were the little Gossip children, aud tho Hearsay Triplets, the Tattle-Tale Twins, the Bxagge ate boys and all the others. Mother Gossip had told Mr. Wood Elf that she had heard that the boy and the girl who were adventuring had thrown stones nt each other and had a dreadful quarrel. "1 must tell you," said Mr. Wood Kif, "that that story you told about the boy and girl is wrong. They nev er threw stones nt each other. You're trying to make a great big story out of a little blt of a quarrel. You don't like bearing that lt was only a small quarrel, you don't like that at all. You want to add to lt nod make it sound so much worse, and then you Will add some mort;, and say that the children are quarrelsome, and later on you will get lt around that they're not friendly nt all and tidally that-4hey don't speak." T "But I had something to start on, didn't I?" asked Mother Gossip, hap pily. "Of course," said Mr. Wood Elf, "though I've known you to start up things on nothing nt all." "Shows jhow much Imagination I have," said Mother Gossip. "You've a mean nature and that's not imagination,'1 said Mr. Wood Elf. They were In the woods and look ing around they saw lots of little mountains which had been made out of mole hills. While they were walk ing between the mountains they would have lost each other if Mr. Wood Elf had not said, "Each take ono of my. hands so we don't lose each other. This Is a bad place In which to get lost." "You see," said Mother Gossip, as you w8n't be friendly with me, and as Mr. Wood Elf knows all about me, I'll tell you about these mountains. They all began by being mole hills. Do you remember the expression? "It goes something like this: 'You can make a mountain out of a mole hill.' "Now sometimes lt Is made In differ ent ways-a mountain out of a mole "Don't Lose Each Other." hill. It's not always made of gossipy stories, but lt is pretty often, and so herc are some of the stories we've made. "We've added to the little stories and made little hills and then wo've added and added, and made everyone so curious that they added more bo cause they thmiKbt there surely must be something more to add, and so we've gradually made our small moun tains. "But they'ro so big now that no ene could move them or pull them down. It's hurd to deny n story which has gone around well and which hits been well added to, Isn't lt? We knew that and so we've made our moun tains big enough to stand anything. "Besides," Mother Gossip added, "If anyone does try to destroy one of our nice little mountains we always hnve our Untrue Spiders to help us." "What are they?" asked the girl. "They're untrue spiders," repeated -Mother Gossip. "They're not real and they're not true. But just ns soon as anyone tries to pul I down a bi? story, or a big hill which has been made out of a little one, they make the person ?et Ro tangled In their webs of un truth that they can't chango the story or the mountain at all. "Oh," Mother Gossip went on, "I make folks so unhappy. I make folk? so miserable. I try to do thom barm. I try to rfpoll them by making them weak and making them give In to tho fascinating wiles of Mother Gossip. I make them enjoy talking about each other and how puny, and delicate and yet how dainty they do become ! They become so fussy. Everyone ls wrong but themselves. But because they be come so delicate and because they so lack strength, they're not good at go ing up the hills and doing things that are hard and becoming strong and fine."

Hospital Ship Took Wives of Sailors to tho Pacific Consta In tho early summer of 19 20 tho navy hospital ship Mercy sailed for tho Pacific Coast with tho wives and famillos of the officers and enlisted men of tho Pacific lleet. The vessel had undergone extensive repairs for two months previous at tho Brook lyn, N. Y., Navy Yard in preparation for this novel cruise. Tho Mercy was commissioned in February, 1918, and made five trips to Europe, carrying over three thous and wounded soldiers and sailors homo to the United States. She was completely equipped as a hospital ship, there being over three hundred beds, divided into several different wards, There is an examining room and an isolation ward, an operating room, dental ward and other wards and rooms, all of which are fully equipped to care for the sick. The vernacular of the sea is not strange to the unique passenger list which embarked on this strange voy age on this famous vessel. Assocla OEO. HARVEY ".SKINNED ALIVE In Senate by Harrison-Finds n Do fender in Senator Reed. Washington, April 21.-George Harvey, recently appointed ambas sador to Great Britain, was attacked in the Senate to-day by Senator Har rison, Democrat, ~' Mississippi, defended by Senator Reed, Demo crat, of Missouri. Senator Harrison declared that Harvey's appointment by President Harding was a "reward for Iiis ef forts to discredit Presilent Wilson, anl that there never was such an un suited, unfit individual" to take up the duties of American representa tive at tho Court of St, James." Senator Reed, in reply, said that President Harding was "perfectly within his rights" In appointing Mr. Harvey, and 'pointed out that the Senate had confirmed the appoint ment. "I have failed to agree with Col. Harvey on thousands of subjects," Senator Reed said, "but I recognize in him what is probably one of the greatest intellects of tho country," Senator Lodge, of Massachusetts, the Republican leader, also defended Mr. Harvey, declaring that "it was very unfortunate that tho Senate, which has just confirmed 'Mr. Har vey, should bo forced to listen to tikis attack upon him because now lie la the representative of the United States. Senator Lodge described Ambas sador Harvey as "an American through and through," mid tho at tack on him In the Senato as "a sor ry piece of political tactics." He added that tho appointment had been given to Mr. Harvey "without suggestion or application from him." Tho Mississippi Senator said that Mr. Harvey's "pursuit of Wilson through his Journals and otherwise ls only comparable to Milton's hell hounds that were stationed at thc gates of the Infernal regions." He added that the ambassador had "no equal as a creator of prejudice and a stirrer of strife," and that he was "a vindictive, self-appointed, In tolerant political accident." He feared, he said, that "Col. Har vey's arrival fiY'London would cause Great Britain and other nations lo bollevo that he will uso whatever Influence he may possess and the power of his position In attempts to destroy the League of Nations," Recalling that his attempt to ob tain tho consideration of Col. Har vey's nomination lu open session ol tho Sonate had boen blocked, Sena tor Harrison said that the nomina tion was "of BU ch peculiar making and such potential import that thc country has a right to know tho un dorlying facts that prompted thc nomination, and tho influence that brought about Its confirmation." ? -?.* Subscribe for Tho Courier. (BoaVj Mon and correspondence with their sailor husbands has been an excel lent means ot instruction. The wife of one chief petty officer.was sure that her husband had told hor quite enough about the sea to qualify her as a "man-o'-warsmau." And no doubt there were many surprises nurung, as when a sailor announced that dinner was about to be served, and some fair passenger informed him that she had not seen the meal pennant broken nor heard "pipe down" blown on the boatswain's pipe. When the Navy Department decid ed to send a fleet of ships to the Pacific it was not possible to keep all the sailors residing on the East Coast in the Atlantic fleet. As a re sult a number of married men wore separated from their loved ones, and tlio navy did the best thing possible by taking tho wives of the sailors to their'husbands, the only exponse be ing that for moal?. Everything else on this pleasure trip was free for the wives of tho sailors, and doctors, nurses and attendants were on board to caro for tho sick passengers? A novel milk machine was installed for converting milk powder into a bev erage similar in every respect to frosh milk, thus Insuring plenty of good milk for the children and the sick passengers. * This wonderful trip gave tho sail ors' wives an opportunity to see the strange lands and peoples of which they had often heard their husbands talk. Tho Morey went through the Panama Canal and shaped her course over tho route taken by the Pacific fleet iii its historic cruise from Hampton Roads to the Golden Gate. The trip took about three weeks, and after a liberal stop-over at Colon and Panania City the hospital ship turn ed her prow towards the sunny coast of California. These little incidents mean much for the morale of the men in the navy, and lt may be truthfully said that the Navy Department is sparing no expenes to make the men as com fortable in every respect as is possi ble, and expresses clearly what is meant when a navy man exclaims, "The Navy Takes Care of Its Own." j GENERAL LIGGETT IN OVERALLS j - J Docs "His Hit" Helping Legion Men Preparo for ''Opening Party." San Francisco, Cal., April 21. A white-haired, elderly man, dressed In blue overalls, yesterday entered a building here which is being con verted into a club house for the American Legion, looked around cu riously and then accosted the men in charge of tho volunteer workers.

The elderly man "pitched in" with hammer, saw and broom.

(Rost) |? 6R0W?NS "S?G?HSPUDS" .mettions for Caro of Sweet Potato Beds and Setting of Plants to the Field. Clemton Collogo, April 18.-At this season tho awoot potato slips should" be coming up in the sweet potato bed. Caro should be taken that the bed ls kept moist at all tlmeB in order to en courage growth of the slips. Usually four Inches of sand or sandy loam soil ls placed over the potatoes in the bed. This will force the slips to come up through four inches of soil or sand. When thy slips are throe inches above thb surface of tho ground they will bo largo enough to set to tho field. Care should be taken to wet tho sweet potato bed thoroughly two or throe hours before tho slips are drawn; otherwise they may bo broken In drawing. It will require three bushels of po tatoes to furnish suffelont slips to plant an acre. One aero transplant ed early in tho season, say during the middle of May, will provide enough vino cuttings to sot five acres moro. After the vines have made a growth of from tun to twelve inches they are cut and transplanted in tho same way as slips. These cuttings are usually from eight to ten inches long, and set tho jr full length in the soil, leaving two or throe buds only above tho sur face. In order that a large number of cuttings may be available early in the sr ison, lt is desirable to trans plant tho first aero of slips on com paratively rich noil, or to fertilise the land heavily with a commorcial fer tilizer in order to stimulate a vigorous growth. Usc Vine Cuttings. Potatoes grown from cuttings will be freer from disease than those grown from slips. Therefore, it ts de sirable to have as large a per cont o' the crop as possible produced from vino cuttings rather than from slips. Three or four drawings may be mado from tho potato bed, provided the slips are not allowed to grow too long before removing them. The slips are supported by the plant food contained In the potato Itself, and after the third drawing is removed, will not sprout freely. In order that the slipB or cuttings may bo transplanted to the field as soon as they are large enough, the ground where the potatoes are to bo planted should be prepared in ad vance, i o that advantage may be taken of a good season; otherwise it may be necessary to water the plants as they are transplanted to the field. This, of course, ia very expensive and should bo avoided wherever possible. Distance for Setting. The usual distance for setting the plants is from fifteen to eighteen Inches apart In three-foot rows. When set eighteen inches apart lt will require 9,680 plants to set an acre; If set twelve Inches apart, as is some times recommended, it will require 14,520. Potatoes are seldom set as cloao as twelve Inches in the row, and this is done only when the tend ency is for the potatoes to grow too largo. By close sotting a larger num ber of potatoes is produced, but very few of the large or Jumbo type are found, the Idea hoing to produce ns large a percentage as possible of the No. 1 potato, that is one that is not more than 3% or loss than 1% Inches In diameter. Preparing and Fertilizing the Land. After the land for swoets has been thoroughly plowed, the rows should be laid off three foot and a deep fur row oponed with a shovel plow. Tho fertiliser should be applied In this drill at the rate of 600 to 800 pounds per acre, a ridge formed over this fur row by running two furrows with a half-shovel turn plow on each side. The plants should then be set on this bed. A fertilizer analyzing 8 percent phosphoric acid, 3 percent nitrogen, and three percent potash is recom mended for the Peidmont region, whose the soils are clayey, or clayey loam. In the central and southern parts of the state, where the soils are more or less sandy, a fertilizer analyz ing 8 percent phosphoric acid, 3 per cent nitrogen, and 6 percent potash is recommended. Tho greatest care should be taken in the preparation of the land and the subsequent cultiva tion In order that as high a yield as possible may be obtained. We should endeavor to produce not loss than 160 bushels per acre. Two hundred to 225 bushels are frequently harvested where the fields ore properly plowed, fertilized, and cultivated. Varieties Recommended. Tho Porto Rico, Nancy Hall, and Triumph are the three varlotios now being grown most extensively in the South. The Porto Rico is tho most popular variety in this state. Tho Triumph ls an early variety lind ls planted extensively when the pota toes are shipped greon to tho north ern markets during August and Sep tember. In an age demanding efficiency there Is no place for the scrub. The progressive dalry farmer can not afford to be without a silo. A good sow is a gold bond yielding ?ix to eight coupons semi-annually. There is no equivalent or substl tute for good milk.
