A Billion Dollar Session.
When, ten years ago, the appro
priation of a single Congress during
its two years' term aggregated a
billion dollars the country stood a
ghast at the contemplation of such
extravagance. The present Con
gress pormises to break all past re
cords by appropriating a billion dol
lars in a single session.
Although some of the congression
al leaders have sounded many notes
of warning during the session now
drawing to a close the houses of
Congress, urged on by the Admin
istration, have appropriated money
at a rate which will run the totals
up to the billion-dollar mark. The
fact that the country is facing a big
deficit in its revenues compared to
expenditures does not seem to cause
either Congressmen or the Admin
istration to hesitate.
Of course the country cannot go
on facing an annual deficit. When
the surplus which has existed hith
erto is all wiped out either the ex
penditures will have to be reduced
or some new sources of revenue will
have to be found. There will be
little desire on the part of the
deople to sanction an increase in the
tariff duties, and the prohibition
sentiment which is growing in the
country is not favorable to an in
crease in internal revenue taxes.
How then will the additional re
venue be provided? That is a prob
lem which public men shrink from
answering, for fear that there
should arise a fresh agitation for an
income tax or some similar form of
While it is reasonable to-expect
that the country's expenditures
should grow with the increase of
wealth and population, the appro
priations by Congress have grown
very much faster than has the
country, having, in fact, doubled
in ten years,
a halt should be called in the rate
of expenditure.—New Orleans

Economy of State Association.
The organization of a State Truck
Growers' Association would mean
much in the way of saving money.
Let us say for illustration that
there are 20 comunities interested in
trucking,and that there are 10 avail
able markets for their produce.
Say each of these 20 comunities
offers its produce by wire to each
of these 10 markets, there you have
200 telegrams at an average cost of
say 50c., each, or $100. Now let
the State Association handle the
matter. Each comunity wires its
offerings to the Central office,
that's 20 telegrams; the Central
office wires its offerings to each of
the ten markets, that's 10 telegrams
more, or 30 telegrams, at the same
average of 50c., or $15, as against
$100 the other way, a saving of
$85. Let us suppose that it was
necessary to make this offer only
once a week during the shipping
season, and that the shipping season
lasted only 12 weeks. It's quite sim
ple : 13 times $85, or $1020.00
saved to the truckers on the one
item of telegrams during a season.
That is only on the telegrams
offering the produce, to say nothing
of other telegrams that follow in
completing transactions. The same
thing applies to postago.

First Give Your Home a Thrifty
My argument is not to ride about
so much, trying to control some
market or other; but to go back
home and go to work first, to make
a respectable home that the strang
er passing will look upon with
pleasure. Build barns as you can,
poultry houses as you can, and
cattle sheds anyway. Raise
chickens as a sideline. Your wife
or daughter will help tend them,
and you can with the proceeds of
ten pay little bills with ease.
Make corn, and a lot of it; and
don't be afraid to feed it to your
hogs. I am straining every nerve
to make too much corn this season.
I think that by working this way 1

make some peavine hay, too, this
season. There is no better feed
for horses in the > spring, in plow
time; and milk cows will yield
abundantly after being fed on it,
besides the fine manure is ready
for poor spots in the field. We
cannot make too much feed stuff.

George finally extricated his head,

had nothing to do with it; and
other evidence in the same effect
was introduced and only one wit

years, and that they have never

petitioners respectfully ask that

January term of the Circtit Court
of Claiborne County, Miss., 1907,
and sent to the penitentiary to
serve a term of 4 years at hard la

made a right judgment, it appears
to your petitioners that it is rather
severe, as the amount collected was
not more than eight or ten dollars,
and that the said Martin has been
confined 14 months and has made a
model prisoner, and we think he
has been sufficiently punished for
the crime, as the aggrieved parties
got their money back.
