Her that used to como hi hero to huvo her face uius soged pretty nearly overy day? Flue looking woman she wus, wasn't shel Yea, there's a story about that, and I don't mind telling lt you, now that she's left those parts. "You 'remuiuber Freddy Luurle, who married Squlro Embroo's daughter? j Good-hour ted follow he was, but wild, 'and couldn't resist women. He hadn't ?been married more than a your before Mrs. Ulntoul and he-well, I don't want to speak bard of any ono, but it was easy to seo how things lay be tween these two. Fascinated with each other from tho sturt, they woro, and poor Mrs. Laurie crying ber eyes out hi tho Lillirie place, f "Night after night he'd bo seen driv ing about with Mrs. Ulntoul. Freddy [wasn't moro than thirty, aud she must have been forty If abe wus a day, though sho didn't look it. Infatuated tiley were, but she wus moro Infatu ated with him than ho was with her, I guess. "You know when a woman gotB to [bo around forty, all the fires of youth .oro apt to burn up In ber again. Espe cially if she's been unhappily married, ins Mr?. Ulntoul had been. She was crazy about him from the first, and lt Jwaa that that attracted him. J "Thut was when she began coining In hero to have her face massaged. Sho didn't look forty,'but there's no way-no, absolutely no way-in which ,a woman of forty can look like a girl ?of twenty-five. They all think they 'can, though I Mrs. Ulntoul looked llvo (years younger than she was, but sho iliad little lines about the corners of her eyes and mouth, abo hadn't tho firmness of Hush that a young woman has. And the massaging helped some, ?but it didn't bring back youth. | j "Matty was with me then-you re member her? That tall, ?lark girl who was so good at manicuring. She got friendly with Mrs. Ulntoul, mid Mrs, Ulntoul used to confide in her-most everything, save that she never men tioned Freddy Laurie's name. Then Matty told her about the doctor that made a specialty of taking out wrin kles by operating. "Of course that's really tho only permanent cure. You can massage and massage, but tho lines will always come buck nguiu unless you take a flap of the * loose skin away and tighten tho whole fuco up. That's What Matty advised-and Mrs. Rintoul fell for lt. "Not good business of Matty's? I told her no. 1 reckoned it cost mo ten dollars a week, what .with tito ma?; sago and the huh* dressing. Malt) was a fool In a way-but anyhow the hann was done. "Mrs. Ulntoul went to Dr. Deering. Called himself a doctor, though I guess he never saw the Inside of any med ical school. Why, they're not allowed to do operations unless for sickness, I've heard. However, ho knew his Job all right. There's plenty of foolish women in this town ho's operated on nt two hundred and fifty apiece-and changed their faces so that you'd hardly know they were tho samo people. i 1 "Mrs. Rintoul went to bini, and after that she stayed home for two weeks, watting for thc sears to heal. They . make the cuts under the bair, you (know. Matty went up to the house [to seo ber while abo was convalescing, and the report she brought buck was perfectly startling. She said Mrs. Uln toul hadn't a Uno In her face-Just as smooth ns a baby's. Lord, what some w omen will do when they're Infatu ated with a man I "Tho day came when abe was out. Of course Freddy Laurie didn't know what she'd been doing. Ho thought abo was 111 with grippe, and every day ! ho was around there with flowers and poor Mrs. Laurie crying up nt the Laurie place. "It was Mrs. Rintoul's 'maid told Matty what happened when they met. Young Laurie stared at her ns If she'd turned black. 'I didn't .seem to recog nize you somehow,' thc maid heard him say. That was all-Just Unit. ! And Mrs. Ulntoul turned UR whlto ns a ghost, and soon after Mr. Laurie cunio away. "They met once or twice "nf tor that, hut their lovemaking was ut an end. When I saw Mrs. Ulntoul I saw what ! had happened. You soe, before tho I operation she'd been a sweet-looking [woman. After lt-well, everything was different-ber with her smooth, i baby ince und lier mature figure. Sho was a woman of thirty-five Just tho Hame-nothing could alter that; but her face-didn't flt. "So I don't ad viso my customers to have anything to do with Dr. Deering." A Profitable Ruo?. A physician was walking up Broad way when he saw a dentist friend look ing nt somo shirts In a show window. Just then a panhandler stepped up to tho dentist und begun to unravel a hard-luck story. To the physician's as tonishment tho dentist lifted his hand to Ids ear. and auld, rolslng his voice considerably : "How's that? You'll have to aponte | louder. I'm hard of hearing." The panhandler hurried away, grumbling, to himself. The physician walked up j and laid his hand on the dentist's shoulder. "Jim," he sn id, "you seem to havo ear trouble." , "No, perfectly normal," was tho ro Wy. ?"But that chap was a profes sional,' and 'ploying deaf Is the best way I know to get rid of thut kind."

Some people sing their way through j fifo, and such people have a wonder ful Influence on the lives of others. Music can have an almost magical effect In producing the desired re sults. In fact, the Imagination fulls to picture a world without music. Mind Conquers Matter. Have you heard the latest Cone story? A man with bandy legs called to seo the great practitioner of heal ing by suggestion. After an examination,- tho doctor said : "Yes, they can bo cured. Mas sage them every night and before you go to sleep say, 'My legs are getting less and less bandy' a hundred and fifty times." Full of hope, the man went home. That night he carried out the massage treatment, but he could not remember Just bow ninny times" he had to repeat the magic words. Ile knew lt was something and fifty, so, to make sure, ho recited the phrase three hundred and fifty times. Next morning bc found that he was knock-kneed I Death Rate Already Too H lah. The death rate for tho first (punier of 1D22 among Metropolitan Life pol icyholders was higher aiming whlto policyholders by 5.3 per cent lund among colored policyholders by 0.0 per cent than for the same quarter of 1021. This was due very largely to the effects of epidemic ' Influenza. There ait?, nevertheless, many favor able terns in the figures for tho quar ter. The outstanding one ls the con tinued low mortality from tuber culosis. The unfavorable develop* merits, in addition to the much higher rates for influenza and pneumonia, aro the Increases for organic heart disease, cerebral hemorrhage and chronic nephritis. A higher rate was also registered for automobile acci dents. Art and Beauty. A collier and his wife visited a pic ture gallery. They came to some pho tographs of classic art, and seeing one more striking than the rest, they asked what lt .was. "That," said n visitor standing by, "Is a photograph of the famous Venus de Milo, tho per fect woman." The collier gazed at tho photograph for some timo, nnd then, glancing nt his wife, he snld: "Hy gum, Lizzie, they made a mess o' thee I" Eleven thousand new books woro published in Great Breath last year.

MACAULAY HAD FINE CLOTHES Learned English Historian and States man Had Hobby for Variety of Apparel. Lord Macaulay, the English his torian and statesman and Inexhaust ible conversationalist, had a mind overstocked with learning. And ho had a wardrobe overstocked with clothes, according to Margaret Mac aulay's "Diary." ."Later In life," she writes, "he Indulged himself In an apparently Inexhaustible succession of handsome embroidered waistcoats, which he would regard with much complacency. He was unhnndy to a degree, quite unexampled In the ex perience of all who knew him. When In the open air he wore per fectly new dark kid gloves, into the fingers of which he never succeeded in inserting his fingers more than half way. After he had sailed for India there were found In his cham bers between 50 and CO strops, hacked ' into strips and splinters, with razors ! without beginning or end. About the I fame period he hurt his hand and was Induced to send for a barber. ' After the operation he asked what he was to pay. M,Oh, slr,' said the man, 'whatever you usually give the person who shnves you.' Tn that caso,' said Mac aulay, 'I should glvo you a great gash on each cheek.' " Shades of the Laundry.

(?'razing Crops for South Carolina. A great deal has benn said and written about forage crops for tho southeastern States, but it is of such vital importance that a review of tho facts will do no harm. As the uso of a certain forage crop so ma terially reduces Ibo cost of produc tion by reducing tho amount of con centrates, and at the samo limo is usually a soil building crop any Way', it ls difficult to seo how we can af ford to bo without it. With tho exception of one or two months in the year, the swine men say, wo can have at any timo three to slr different crops for grazing. We can have oats and rye from January until .lune, crimson clover (where suitable) from February un tl J ?lune; Bermuda and lospodc/.a from April to 'Qc lober i velvet heans from .No vember 1 to March 1 ; vetch from December 1 to April 1; peanuts from June to September, and cowpeas and soy beans from May until No vember. Soil Moisture Control. According to tho best estimates, '.he United States is annually losing 400,000,000 tons of valuable sur faco soil through erosion, or enough to fill a Panama canal each year. This loss is immense, especially in tho Piedmont section of South Caro lina, The control of soil moisture in South Carolina is, therefore, tho first big factor in soil management, says N. R. Winters, specialist in soil fer tility. This soil goos ort through field gulleys into our creeks and rivers. lt is always tho finest soil particles, tho most soluble plant food, tho very cream of tho soil, which loaves us first, because of the lack of control of the soil moisture. Our winters aro mild and our win ter rainfall is hoavy, resulting in' a serious loss In plant food'by leach ing, even where the land ls not hilly enough for surface erosion. This leaching loss probably amounts to 40 to 50 pounds Qf precious ni tro gen per acre Where our Holds are left bare all winier long, following a clean cultivated crop. In view of the fact that commercial nitrogen ^vill probably cost, us 30 cents a ?mund next spring in our fertilizer, it be hooves us to use every means avail able for saving this plant food from washing .nd leaching away during the coming winter. Tho uso of wide, clean t -nices where ibo slope of tho land is from foe to sixteen feet in 0 hundred 's absolutely necessary to prevent sur face erosion. Good soll .nanagement is all that ls needed if the slopo is loss than four foot in a hundred/ If the slope 1B more than Htxteen feet per hundrod, tho field had better be soeded down in permanent grass and clover pasturo. Under all conditions the uso of green winter cover crops, sucii as rye, oats, wheat, ryo and vetch, oats and vetch, crimson clover, bur clover, one or moro of which is adnptdd to evory soctjon of South Carolina, will help control tho soil moisture Ibis wintor, and possibly cave $10.00 to $15.00 worth of plant food per acre from leaching out. Thou if theso green wintor crops aro plowed under or used as pasturo and tho resulting organic mailor incor porated into tho soil, soil molsturo Right now there is a thief prowling 'round your barn WHEREVER there is a patch of bare or poorly painted sur face, there he destroys the fibre und steals the value.

C. ii control la henolited and plant food saved. lt is cons va lively estimated that) South Carolina loses annually over ?200,000,000 on h?r coin and cotton crops alone because of either exces sive moisture or droughty conditions' and that $110,000,000 of this could be saved to tho farmers of South Carolina by good soil management, which Includes the five big factors-. soil moisture control, Incorporation of organic matter, good plowing and tillage, t-ho regular and systematic: uso of limo in the rotation with leg umes, and tho intelligent usc of fer tilizer. Why Figaro Hogs on Our Program,'/! Owing to the fact that new money crops are much in demand in South Carolina at the prosert time, it 13 well to consider tho relativo meriti? Of tho various ppss?.bilijties tt'onn. HUH lino. Farmers aro diversifying, but a ve having trouble Unding CT?ptij which can be produced at any con siderable net profit with any dogreo of certainty. There have boen two largo stumbling blocks In the' way of the average South Cnrollnn farmer under the one-crop cotton system - first, a largo fertilizer hill, regard less of crop production; second, hav ing to soil on a market not controlled In any largo mensuro by supply "ami demand., Tho hog crop is not endangered by these stumbling blocks, and asido from these facts it has se. al other points much In Its f(*vor, says S. D. Sims, extension swine specialist, who calls attention to the following facts: The crops grown for pork fetid aro in the main legume crops, which naturally build up tho soil. If these crops are pastured, over three-quar ters of tho plant food contained In the crop is returned to the land, it cnn bo readily seen, therefore, thar, by a continuous system of livestock management, the soil can ho enrich ed, and at the samo time Ibo farmer will have a sure source of profit, without spending largo sums for com mercial fertilizers. *In regard to the mat 1er of market ing, there aro few crops which oro so nearly dependent on supply and demand for their selling price as aro hogs. Slightly higher prices usually prevail in April and September, since in these months fewer bogs aro coming oh tho market. Tho ma jority of tho hogs come from the cora bolt and are put. on '.ho market in Juno and July and December and January; Rut it does not pay io go to much extra oxpense in order to finish pork for tho li lg li er marketa because tho difference is so slight, though with tho favorable climate prevailing in our Stato for a contin uous growing season, wo can Como nearer catering to high prico periods than producers in moro rigorous cli mates.
