The Pool Tobacco Grading.
The following announcement of how
the Pool will grade tobacco on the
farms is given out by the Pool head
quarters :
At first it seemed to be quite a prob
lem to arrive at some plan that would
enable the Pool to settle with the farm
er on an equitable basis. Considerable
time and study was given to this phase
of the Pool work by C. A. Hoen and
John Holtan, and finally the following
plan was adopted. There is no doubt
but that it will be more just than the
plan that has been used in the past.
This Grading Plan is as follows:
Two men will be sent out to draw
samples from every 3rd, 4th or sth bun
dle. The farmer owning the crop must
be present when samples are drawn.
If the farmer has some late tobacco,
hail-cut tobacco, or, in other words,
different classes of tobacco, a notation
will be made of the number of bundles
of each type that he possesses. A cer
tain number of bundles will be weighed
in order to arrive at the approximate
weight of the crop. These samples,
wl.en drawn, will be placed in a regular
bundling box and wrapped in paper. A
tag with the contract uumber of the
pool-member will be tied to this bundle
of samples.
This bundle of samples will then be
taken to the warehouse where an ex
perienced sorter will sort it in the reg
ular way. The weights of the different
sizes will be taken, the weights of rags
and fillers will be taken in order to ar
rive at the percentage of each in this
certain crop of tobacco. When the
sorter is through, this bundle of sample
tobacco will have a card attached show
ing the percentage of each size, the
percentage cleaned out, and also the
remarks of the man grading the sample
as to his opinion of how the tobacco
was put up on the farm.
The grader then comes, and with this
information before him he places this
crop in one of four grades. The grad
er, after consulting the card attached
to the bundle of samples, must be
guided by the quality of the tobacco.
He does not know the farmer who
raised the tobacco. The only identifica
tion of the crop at this time is the con
tract number. The facts are before
him and he must judge.
In case the farmer is not satisfied
with the grade in which his tobacco is
placed, he notifies the headquarters at
Madison and another grader is sent out
to draw samples. If the grade remains
the same as before, the farmer must
stand the expense, but if the grade is
changed the pool must stand the ex

the four upper years of H. S. is now in

their ability by winning. On Wednes

Females Less Showy Because Nature
Knew They Had the Greater
Need for Protection.
Speaking of classes of birds, includ- I
ing, for instance, the bullfinch, in
which the plumage of the male is more i
brilliant than that of the female. E.
Kay Robinson, president of the Brit- j
ish Empire Naturalists’ association, j
says that in nature it is always the
male who has more decoration and a !
louder voice. This is because the male I
is of comparatively little value, says .
Mr. Robinson. It does not matter a
great deal whether the male is discov
ered and killed or not, because there
is always another bird to take his
place at the head of the family. The
female and the young are more impor
The reason why the breast of a bird
is the place where nature always
seems to put color is that when a male
bird takes its turn on the nest crouch
ing over the eggs its breast cannot be
seen. Young brown owls and other
birds of prey, Mr. Robinson explains,
are always covered with gray fluff.
When the mother bird brings home
some animal, usually bleeding, and
tears it to pieces, giving each little
bird a joint of raw flesh, they make
themselves in a great mess. The suit
of fluff, according to Mr. Robinson, is
really an overall to protect the grow
ing feathers underneath. As soon as
the young bird leaves the nest the fluff,
which has gradually become loose, is
shaken off.
The Origin of Salt.
The geologist Suess holds the source
of the sea salt was volcanic eruptions,
when the earth’s crust was beginning
to harden it. Eruptions, he says, give
forth gaseous compounds containing
chlorine, which is brought down by

Love of Praise.
The love of praise is generally con
nected with all tfie finer sensibilities
of human nature. To be entirely'des
titute of all this passion betokens an
ignoble mind, on which no moral im
pression is easily made; for where
there is no desire of praise, there will
be no sense of reproach. But while it
is admitted to be a natural and, in
many respects, a useful principle of
action, it is entitled to no more than
our secondary regard. It has its boun
dary set, by transgressing which it is
at once transformed from an innocent
into a most dangerous passion. When
passing its natural line, it becomes the
ruling spirit of conduct; when the re
gard we pay to the opinions of men
encroaches on that reverence which
we owe to the voice of conscience and
the sense of duty, the love of praise,
having then gone out of its proper
place, instead of elevating, debases.—
Doctor Smith. I
Foiling the Check Forger.
4- branch of crime that causes great
loss to business men is check forgery.
By the use of bleaching acids, ink
eradicators and “penning,” checks
made out for, say, sl6, have been al
tered to $1,600, and cashed for this
amount. When such a swindle occurs,
the bank concerned is not responsible
for the loss unless the actual signature
has been forged. The only method of
preventing these crimes is the use of
the patent check-writer, of which there
are about fifty thousand in use. The
machine “shreds” the words and fig
ures into the check. Acid-proof ink in
two colors is used and a check would
have to be destroyed before any alter
ation could be made.
The Morris-Dancers.
In England, in medieval times, the
Christian feast of Penticost absorbed
one of the summer festivals of the
pagan inhabitants of western Europe.
It was commonly celebrated in all
parts of the country by what was
termed the Whitsun-ale, and it was a
great time for the Morris-dancers,
Antiquaries seem agreed that the old
English Morris-dance, so great a favor
ite in the Sixteenth century, and still
used, was derived through Spain from
thp Moors, and that its name in Span
ish, “Morisco,” a Moor, was taken from
this circumstance.

The 25th of October is “All Soles'

St. Crispin, patron saint of shoemak
ers. In merrle old England St. Crispin
day was one of gay festivities, in
which all those in the shoemaking
trade participated. The good saint is
said to have been a shoemaker who
made shoes for the poor out of leather
supplied him by an angel, and he gave
them away gratis in spite of the fact
that they were manufactured from ex
tra quality heaven-made leather, im
ported exclusively for his patrons.
