New York. April 22.—(Special.)—It
tvas In North Carolina that one of the
important factors In manufacture of
acetylene gas was revealed to an ex
pert at a time when he was Investi
gating mineral properties In that state,
having in mind the manufacture of
carborundum and of aluminum. Now
through the utilization of French capi
tal there is to be established in North
Carolina a plant which represents an
Investment of approximately $12,000,
)00. This is one of the many of the
features of the wonderful industrial
advance which has characterized the
south in the past 10 or 16 years.
Even in this city there was no
knowledge, excepting to a feflr that
French capital had discovered tempting
opportunities in North Carolina where
by through the utilization of water
power and the conversion of that en
ergy into electric power there could be
manufactured aluminum in large quan
tities and at a less cost probably than
the manufacture of this metal in the
past has entailed. The capital which
Frenchmen have put Into this under
taking is expected to develop ulti
mately energy equivalent to 120,000
horse power. That matches, probably
overmatches, the power development
recently constructed at Masslna
Springs, N. Y., whereby some of the
energy that is In the rapids of the St.
Lawrence river is converted into elec
tric power.
This North Carolina water power is
believed to be unfailing. It. can so be
utilized as to make the manufacture
of perhaps as much as 20,000 tons of
aluminum a year possible. The energy
is carried for a considerable distance,
some miles, by means of suitable ap
paratus from the water power site to
the manufacturers, and the magnitude
of its entire construction is suggested
by the fact that it would entail the
use of between 600,000 and 700,000 bar
rels of Portland cement. The New

will require a larger amount of ce

CHARITY OR RELIGION?
By GEORGE EAVES I>.U.
ANoimiiK i- muio n^fuwi hi on muiKuaiii
than a new baptism of what is called
“Charity.” The common sort too greatly
lacks the spirit of Jesus, in Whose name
it so often stands and pleads. Indeed one
may almost see that some who honor
Jesus only as a great Teacher, are carry
ing more of His spirit into their acts
of charity than many who are called
by His name.
Does Birmingham give on principle or
because her feelings are appealed to? Is
it not a shame to us that we must have
the Boys’ club selling tags, or Mercy
Home showing its babies in a shop win
dow, to make us help to save the boys
or feed the babies? So when three of the
most compelling agencies of our city ap
peal for the means of doing our work for
the broken-hearted and the sick, the de
pendent child and the home exposed to
deadly infection, is it not pitiful that
busy men must leave their business and
call again and again to ask for subscrip
tions which at last are given grudgingly
and penuriously?
Questions like these do not apply to
everyone, hut they do apply to the whole
community because they are created by
members of the community.
The response to the Tri-Charities' cam
paign was in many instances nobly gen
erous, and especially by the men who
formed the working committee. Some of
the most self-denying gifts came from
working men. Ensley, with a wage-earn
ing population, did splendidly. Other re
sponses from working areas are still ex
pected. But looking at the facts before
us, only about 1000 subscribers “came
across,” with an average gift of loss than
$10 for a year’s war on those twin foes
of mankind, disease and poverty. Only
what was needed was asked. The execu
tive officers, responsible for the work,
are still left facing the half empty com
missary department, less than half of the
necessary funds being yet pledged. Some
subscribers gave less for three organiza
tions than they had formerly pledged to
one, others gave no more. Others in giv
i ing seemed to think that they were doing
a favor to the gentlemen soliciting.
T assume that everyone now knows how
closely the Income and expenditure is
figured in these lines of service, the Chil
dren’s Aid society, the Associated Chari
ties and the An^i-Tuberculosis associa
tion; that no big salaries are paid; that
co-operation is secured with churches
and orders and other philanthropic forces,
so as to reduce the cost of service, and
that all three stand for phases of a great
nal construction has made a world’s
record in the use of Portland cement.
A Groat Industry
Not longer ago than the time when
tlie late George Westinghouse, in com
pany with men of dsitinctlon in the
world of science, visited Niagara Falls
for the purpose of Inspecting the first
installment of the turbine water
wheels which were to convert the en
ergy of the Niagara river, or some of
it, to electric energy aluminum was an
expensive metal. Its great value in
the arts and domestic purposes had
long been known, hut the expense
of extracting aluminum from 1 lie soil
was so great as to prohibit the uti
lization of It except in some special
fields.
With the development of electric
energy at Niagara through the aid of
Niagara river’s energy it became pos
sible to extract aluminum at much low
er cost. Gradually it has gained a per
manent place in the industrial world
and in the future may he utilized to
an enormous extent in industrial elec
tricity.
French bankers have long been in
terested In various propositions for en
larged utilization of aluminum and the
manufacture of it at such low cost as
might make its use commercially as
practicable as is that of Iron or cop
per. They have demonstrated th'eir
faith in the North Carolina proposi
tion by investing $12,000,000 in the
plant. This is only one of several in
dustrial promotions now in progress
in North Carolina and in other partB of
the south which should w'lthin a fewr
years greatly increase the industrial
Importance of the south.
Another Southern Enterprise
Recently Mr. Richard H. Edmonds,
editor of the Manufacturers’ Record,
Baltimore, has made reference to the
important gathering of the National
Drainage congress which is now being
held in Savannah. How important from
the scientific as well as industrial point
of view is the work undertaken by
tills congress is proved by the fact that
Sir William Willcox, one of the world’s
great engineers, the intellect that de
signed the Assuan dam, whereby the
Nile can he controlled, is to be the
guest of honor of this congress and is
to deliver an address.
A Great Undertaking
The agitation in favor of the reclama
tion,of lands in the south which are now
unfit for tillage because swampy, if
it should be successful, will he of
practical Importance not only to the
south, but to the rest of the country.
There does not appear to be any pri
vate interest to be subserved by this
proposition, since the lands which it
has sought to reclaim are either in the
ownership of the federal government
or of the state.
Congress can be relied upon ade
quately to legislate so as to perfect
an organization for the reclamation of
these lands and It Is understood to be
the purpose of the members of the
National Drainage congress to place
the entire proposition in the control of
the interior department, excepting in
cases where drainage work entails a
river improvement. Then that work will
he done in co-operation with the war
department.
Tlie details of organization, however,
can safely he left to Congress. Tlie scien
tific and commercial features of the plan
are of special interest at this time, when
there is a growing disposition greatly to
enlarge fields wherein agriculture can he
made profitable. Mr. Edmonds reports
that there are some 75.000,000 acres of
swamp land or overflow' land in tlie Uni
ted States which can be recljfcned with
out prohibitive cost being entailed. The
cotton crop of the south, whose average
yearly value of recent years is approxi
mately $1,000,000,000, is grown and harvest
ed upon only about 40,000,000 acres. Al
most all of the land in the United States
now under surface water or swampy is
nf a fertility which is equal to that char
1 .(.eristic of the valley of the Nile. It is
peculiarly adapted to tlie cultivation of
corn.
About 50.000,000 acres of these swamps
or water-covered lands that can he re
claimed at comparatively small cost lie
in the south. Some years ago a capital
that had been invested very profitably in
the timber industry of the northern penin
sula of Michigan foilnd that vocation
no longer possible since Michigan timber
was practically exhausted. This capital
turned Its attention to the south and
was especially impressed with the cy
press timber In some of the great swamps
of the south. Some day there will be
large development of the cypress tim
ber industry in the south. Some of the
swamp lands of tlie south cannot be re
claimed at reasonable cost, at least by
any of the methods known to men of sci
ence of the present time. But much the
larger part of the swamp lands of the
south can easily he reclaimed, and that
portion will prove especially attractive Lo
the farmer. Ixmislana has done wmnder
ful reclamation work, relying almost ex
clusively upon the capital of that state
or of statets wfhich are neighbors to it.
There Is no state in the union which has
been so greatly and so successfully oc
cupied in reclamation as has Louisiana.
At the approaching national drainage con
gress some of the leading engineers ot
the United States and of Europe will
lie pjesent, and it is expected that the
discussions will be of the utmost interest,
since they will be carried on by men oi
such expert ability.
Lwumiuii [ifmnmiiK iu U1C n fiiy
and county. Is Birmingham facing that
task as a high religious duty?
The task may be classified thus:
(a) Children's Aid Work:
1. The proper care of dependent chil
dren, mothers and homes.
2. Adequate visiting service to discover [
all available facts concerning neglected i
children, broken down homes, vicious sur- ,
roundings, etc., and to inspect homes Into j
which children have been received or
adopted.
3. Means to provide equipment for cen
tral receiving home and proper homedk* '
care for children there resident, that th y 1
may be glad and childlike while wards - i !
the city.
(b> General Service.
1. Money to purchase relief of the
pressing want or destitution. however
caused, whether in individuals or families.
2. Well trained visitors to study every
case and to co-operate with the unfortu
nate for permanent upbuilding, without
pauperization.
.3. Sufficient space, properly arranged,
so that humiliation of applicants by
avoidable publicity may not occur.
4. Means of grouping families that need
continued and sustained assistance, so
that such aid may tend to awaken as
much self reliance as possihle. as well as
providing constant supervision in the
most fruitful and economical tvav. A
N« ighborhood House should be the center
with a playground and highly trained
leadership reaching the associated homes.
to Tuberculosis Relief.
1. 1 >iscovery and reinforcement of fam
ilies attacked by tuberculosis; securing
proper employment, necessary equipment
for fresh air, nutritious diet, etc.
2. Relieving the incipient consumptive
in the sanatorium to free him of the anx
iety that pulls him away to take care for
his loved ones, when he needs continued
sanatorium protection.
•3. Founding farm colonies for black an 1
white families respectively, where de
pendence caused by tuberculosis might be
economically overcome, and discharged
patients held till recovery is made per
manent.
4. Support of a thoroughgoing county
nursing system, to carry the gospel of
fresh air, to uncover hidden cases of
tuberculosis, to bring the aid of the
health officers to the badly housed fam
ily. and to prevent the spread of the
disease by segregating consumptives
where possible and necessary in their
homes.
Hastening the growth of an adequate
hospital system for care of all advanced
o:* apparently incurable cases of consump
tion. both white and negro.
6. Provision of a colony or sanatorium
for Incipient negro tuberculosis.
7. Provision of day camps for tuberu
lar or anaemic children, with open air
! schools, taught by the board of educa
tion.
j S. Generous support of the existing san
atorium for Incipient, cases among white
I poeple.
This last point is so placed because
It already is a fact, end involves all
| the others, if we are to do the work
in a strong, broad, effective way. 1 do
not speak merely of what we have, but
also of what we ought to have, and what
w« easily might have, if Birmingham
woke up to her need, her wealth, her op
portunity, her responsibility.
Pocause there is so much to do. many
arc doing practically nothing.
Because they say appeals are so fre
quent. many give out a grudging and mi
croscopic dole.
And yet most of the things above emim
eiuted should lie supported by public
t'ixes. Taxes are low he*e, and it is little
| indeed that volunteer taxation can add
for the succor of Christ’s little ones. «ay
I not, without offense, ask whether the
religious motive Js in our so-called “char
ity''? These are taxes we owe both to
the city of Birmingham and the city of
God.
Consider now the wealth of Birming
ham.
1. What do we spend on luxury? That
is a fair question, and the answer shows
that Birmingham is a wealthy city.
We are spending millions on luxury.
Think of the theatres we support, the
theatre tickets we buy, the suppers and
the flowers and the taxicab or auto,
[all involved in the theatre party. Then
place opposite that annual sum what
the family or the individual pays to
God for His needy ones. I do not ar
gue against such expenditures, but I
appeal for a square deal. Surely it
isn’t just to pay more for amusement
than for our dying neighbor!
Or think of the money spent on beau
tiful dresses, feminine and masculine,
by those whose dole for “charity" is,
as T said before, microscopically small.
Not that dress should be neglected, but
that the poor nniPt not be neglected. Or
consider the holiday and vaca
tion expenditure, the trips to Europe,
to the mountains, to the seaside, the
money squandered in great hotels be
cause others do the same; the time and
energy spent in pleasure while at home,
the workers for the por are struggling
against overwhelming needs with in
adequate and paltry support.
Then there are the cigar bills, the
automobiles (very long hills these!), the
club lunches and dinners, the unneces
sary servants, the delicacies that nre
costly, the food that is wasted, and
offset nil those things with the cost
of bearing the burdens that crush out
hope and joy and life .itself.
Speaking particularly now of the
tight against tuberculosis, it is clear
that It cannot go on unless generously
supported every day in the year. The
expense is constant. A yearly donation
i8 nothing without constant remem
brance. Where dollars have been given
hundreds must be given.
The task will widen and become more
and more costly until the enemy is con
quered. But "charity” gifts, unintelli
gent bestowals of a little money, must be
exchanged for personal interest, under
standing’, and an interest that holds 365
days in the year.
And the same is true of all service.
What can answer the need but a wise
and fervent religious passion, applied
Christianity, wearing well and working
always, with fixed principle and loving
faith and wisdom? In the long run this is
no more than enlightened selfishness. The
more we love our neighbor the better
wewe serve ourselves.
But when it pomes to pressing individual
needs upon the public, what is that hut
exploiting the breaking heart, making a
parade of sorrow? Men ought not to re
quire that! The sufferings disclosed at
dispensary or office or sanatorium must
not be published. I hate to say how
many “free" eases we handlp, for it hu
miliates the recipient of aid. Never a
week goes by when we do not need gifts
to succor families attacked by tubercu
losis. It is a last resort for us to make
descriptive appeals for these. Is not the
luxury of doing good sufficient reward
for its cost? Is it not enough that the
association always can use more money
than It receives and always Is in debt?
Hence with all respect, appreciation and
love, I send out this appeal to all Bir
mingham, begging everyone to take the
religions view of "charity." He whom
Christians worship Identifies Himself
with the slek, the prisoner, the poor, the
broken. "Ye did it unto me.” He says.
But we cannot do it cheaply! That is
the essential fact. We cannot do It cheap
ly! Sacrificial giving Is 'die merest jus

Talks of the Formation and Struc
lure of the Hair
The Hair and Scalp—I’art I
Hair Is composed of the same elements
that enter into the structure of the nails, j
that Is. a certain hardening and modifb’a- I
tion of the epidermis which In the cast j
of the hair forms little tubc-like depres
sions called hair* follicles. These lie em
bedded in the second skin among the ca
pillary and sebaceous glands which bring
them nourishment, and the hair itself
springs out of these follicles, ltalr is
cellular; it grows by the constant push! r;
up of the cefls always forming at the
root. There is considerable difference ot
opinion as to the life of a single hair ;t.ud
it undoubtedly varies In different cases.
A healthy hair should live about fire
years; at that period it fulls out natur
ally and a new hair springs from the
same follicle.
Why Hair Falls
If hair fulls before It Is mature, It Is
<lue to some weakness at the hair root:-,
insufficient nourishment or possibly the
presence of some form of bacteria. This
being so, the hair that takes its place *n
; the hair follicle will be equally weak and
| of short life. A condition of mal-nutritloii
I or persistent disease will result In com
| plete atrophy of the hair follicle, which
' means that no new hair will push out,
: and complete baldness results.
This explanation of the nature of th*
I origin and growth of the hair shows .nw
j necessary It is that the scalp In wnicn
■ the hair follicles are ebedded should be
j kept In healthy condition. A healthy
I scalp is fat and moves loosely over the
j skull. It contains a plentiful supply of
blood vessels to nourish the hair roots
and its surface Is free from dandruff or
any deposit that may clod up the count
less sweat and oil glands with which !i Is
supplied. In this and following lessons
we shall take up the various forms of
scalp troubles and learn how to recognise
and overcome them.
Mabel D.—The chapped lips come from
lack of oil in the skin. You may have
exhausted this by biting or wetting tin
lips, and if so, correct these uufortuna* •
habits at once. Do not use glycerine on
the lips; It is too drying. Treat them t<»
a plentiful supply of cold cream at nigh?
and rub in a little always before going
out.
Planting Backward in Chattooga
Lyerly, Ga., April Vi.— (Special)—Not
In many years have the farmers been
so badly behind with tlielr planting
as Is the case this spring. The con
tinued wet weather has prevented the
planting of any cotton seed and but
few have their land ready for the seed.
A small amount of corn has been plant
ed, but this haB been Injured by the
recent cold weather. At this time last
year much of the cotton crop In this
section had been planted.

other type. The native wistaria lias |
pale blue flowers, smaller than those oi
the Chinese variety, and coming a month
later.
Climhing Vines and Roses
The floral display Is continued by climb
ing roses, coming into bloom after the
wistarias. The south is to be envied for
the possession of the finest climbing roses
of all—the Marechal Niel. The climbing
roses require support which is best given
by trellises. Roses planted nl arches over
walks and entrances make a magnificent,
display, and are equallj effective when
grown on the veranda pillars or trained
up the corners of the house, where the
shoots may be kept in place by the lar^e
staples the kinds used to fasten on the
top of grape baskets.
