Prof. Dix, Miss Kersey, and Miss Haley from Berea were present Miss Kersey as usual told some of Southern Agriculturist NASHVILLE, TENN. The Giant of the South Its immense popularity is due not only to the fact that every line in it is written for South ern farm families by men and women who know and appreciate Southern conditions, but to the practically unlimited personal service that is given to subscribers without charge. Every year we answer thousands of ques tions on hundreds of dilTerent subjects all without charge. When you become a sub scriber this invaluable personal service yours. That is one reason why we have 375,000 Circulation her good stories. Miss Haley played and sang beautifully. Prof. Dix al ways gives Interesting talks and stirs up interest in the whole audience. The community sang hymns while waiting for the crowd to gather in and during the rent periods had regular jam social which all enjoyed, On account of flu the play which Miss Hayes had for the children had to be postponed. The next meeting in April will be taken from the Bible. A prize Bible is offered to the one reciting the most Bible verses. Everybody invited to attend. pose a setting.) Have about 10 dot en on hand at present, FIGHT THE SCALE Now is the time of year to fight the scale that ia playing havoc with fruit trees. Everyone who has an apple tree, a peach tree, a plum, a pear, or cherry tree, or a currant or quince bush should examine it j carefully right away for signs of dis ease. If dead limbs are found on the trees, or if limbs look dry and are covered with a grayish substance which resemble ashes dusted on the bark, action should be taken at once. If much of the tree is lead or gray' looking, it should be cut and burned at once in order to protect the other trees. The fruit trees of east Berea are juffering badly from scale. Almost every group of trees is affected. Un less everybody fights the disease at wee serious results will follow, Wind and birds scatter the scale from i tree to tree and from orchard to )rchard. It has already gone from infected trees to almost every orchard iot m the, eastern part of the town, Prompt Bpraying ia the only safe remedy, If everybody will spray ever tree on his place, and cut and burn every badly infected tree, it can be con trolled. This should be done at once. This is a case where every family wno possesses a friut tree should work with every other family in stamping out this killing disease.

K'OPTTlght is The Open Country Just at the Threshold of a Social Development By DEAN EUGENE DAVENPORT, University of Illinois. Tlie development of country life in America has boon a slow and in nmny rojwta a complicated matter The old-time throe months' winter school tins developed into th modern community hijjh school, and in many localities the farmers' sons and daughter can prepare for college while sleeping cery night under the father's rnf. The religious life of the community has not equally developed. In many respects e have gone backward, as compared with the early days, and there is no feature of farm life tlmt needs now more earnest attention than the development of the country church. The best of modern country homes are now oquiped with all modern conveniences, and they are real centers of culture, but their number need vastly to increase. There is no larger problem before the American people today than is the financial machinery for facilitating the purchase of country home. All in all, the open country ia just at the threshold of a social devel opment ahich euglit to result in an American type of citizenship, not only industrious but cultured and in every way thoroughly consistent with tha standards of a self-governing people.

K oto riarfit I HOME DEPARTMENT Conducted by the Home Economics Department of Berea College n.AN THE GARDEN There are many (food reasons why we fdioiild plan tha aanlen, but I shall only mention a few of tha mnt Im portant. First: We should plan the jrarden herau.He it will ennlile us to anticipate our seed order In time to place it with some tvtinMc seed house and not I he forced to buy from tha commiasion hx of seed at the (rrocery the last i hour. An experiment at tha Illinois I station showed that Danish ball bead I cahbape produced from one lot of I seed tons, while from another lot of wet I on the same pround and same romlition tons were produced. This will be frenrrally true of all seeds. Therefore, if you want the best iranlen with the largest produc- I tion, you rann.it afford to nejrlect or- ' derinir your seeds from some irood seed house. I ' Second: We should plan the jrar ' den because it will enable us to have J vegetables early in the season. In ' the spring- when our body is suffering t for the lack of a proper balanced ra i tion, we have what we rail "spring j fever." This disease is rharacterit ' ed by laziness, boils and a miserable 'disposition. We ito to the doctor andj ask for a tonic. He (rives us a little i bottle filled with red liquid, changes J ! what we call "robbery prices," and we 1 fro away and take the medicine before 'and after eating our meat, rornbread, J and coffee. In this expensive way we fret for the system what we should have had in our regular diet If we planned our garden so, we might have kale, asparagus, spinach, etc., in win- ter and early spring. Third: We should plan our garden because it will enable us to produce I more on the acreage by having the proper succession of crops. That is, to have the planting arranged so that all the crops th.it mature at the same time are together and as soon as they are harvested we have other crops to plant, repeating this thru the season. Fourth: We should plan our gar den because it produces from 10 to 15 times as much food as any other like acreage on the farm. A aurvey in Ohio showed that the home gardens produced on the average $9228 per acre, while the farm crops ranged from $;.o0 to $17.00. Next week we will submit a plan f'r the garden with a view of dem onstrating how the above auggestions may be worked out. KIDDIES SIX y WillMMaupln DOOD MORNIN'."

They were told that if they failed to carry out this order, they would be fired. They piled up their millions during the war, and now they are not willing t pay a few dollars in taxes to help the boys who offered their lives t-J pmtect them and their fortunes and are now, the majority of them to say the leant, in actual neod of money to pay their debts, help buy a little home or get started in business.
