CUT-OVER LANDS PRESENT PROB
LEMS SIMILAR TO THOSE OF THE
New Orleans. Nov. 14. That the own
ers of cut-over lands have a very com
mon Interest with the owners of so-called
swamp or overflow lands In the bringing
of both c?a3ses promptly into beneficial
agricultural use, was emphatically de
clared ' by A. G. T. Moore, director of
cut-over land utilization. Southern Fine
Association, in an address before the
National Drainage Congress at St. Louts,
Mo., on Wednesday, November 12th.
The entire south presents to the minds
of the unposted resident of other sec
tions of the country, a vast sparsely
settled, malaria infected. mosquito
ridden, and strange to say at this late
date, yellow fever Infected population.
It Is not generally known that yellow
fever has been completely eradicated
from the south by the elimination of. the
Btegomeyia mosquito, nor is it known
the extent to which 'malaria has been
curtailed. The tininltlajive mind does not
differentiate between the , Stegomtyla
and common swamp mosquito, and the
mere fact of mosquito prevalence creates
an unfavorable psychology towards the
Naturally, until the mosquito is elim
inated this mistaken impression will pre
vail. Although the mosquito finds his
breeding place In the swamps he does
not confine his activities thereto, but
comes up In big droves to pester the
patience and efficiency of the resident
on so-called cut-over pine lands for many
mifcs distant from his breeding place.
Reclamation of swamp and overflow
lands In the south will eradicate the mos
quito and thereby indirectly re-act to
the benefit of the owners of so-called
cut-over pine land.
Tho owners of these two classes of
lands have in the past been too prone to
consider their interests divergent, and
indeed, they are in bo far as direct lands
sales are concerned, but there has not
been exhibited In the past a sufficient
spirit of co-operation between them to
tho end that the south as a whole get
her stride towards Idle land utilization.
It Is a well-known fact that the in
herent fertility of reclaimed soil Is
materially greater than that xt Irrigated
arid land, yet one hundred and twenty -or.o
odd million dollars have been spent
by the federal government for irrigation
in the western states. Call it a revolving
furid lf you will, but" the fact remains
that the money was spent. I may be
improperly posted, but I do not believe
that one hundred and twenty-one cents
were ever spent by the federal govern
ment In the reclamation of southern
overflow lands. There are possibly two
reasons for this. The first being that the
arid lands were held in federal owner
ship, and secondly the south has never
been organized to the extent that It
could successfully approach congress
rthI the several state legislatures to the
cn5 that our vast idle acreage be brought

Breaks Up Reichstag Com
mittee Hearing. -
Berlin, Nov. 14. (By Associated
Press) Pan-German students today
refused to permit Field ; Marshal Von
Hindenberg to enter the Reichstag
building to testify before the subcom
mittee Investigating war responsibilIr
tles. It was a nationalist demonstra
tion for Hindenburg and Ludendorff
and for a time assumed serious pro
portions, as the crowd cheered Hinden
burg, Ludendorff and shouted "Down
with the Jewish government." They
then cheered for the former kaiser and
state and federal government money.
There are three distinct drainage prob
lems confronting the south tiat of the
overflow lands in the griff states, the
everglades of Florida and the overflow
lands of the South Atlantic states. The
everglades. I believe, we may dismiss
aa a. consideration, because through the
Florida. state co-operation with private
enterprise that problem seems well on
tlic way towards solution. There Is much
room, however, for constructive activity
with federal and state co-operation in the
other sections of the south mentioned,
and the south should et strongly be
hind the so-called Smith-Chamberlain
bill to the end that this constructive ac
tivity be facilitated and expedited.
WESTMINSTER MAY BE. SACRI
FICED TO PAY THE NATIONAL
DEBT CREATED BY THE WAR.
Lonon, Nov. 13. Observers of Ggeat
Britain financial problems attach some
significance to a suggestion made re
cently that the main burden of paying
off the huge national debt created by
the war nhould be laid upon the church
of Kngland and the church of Scotland,
more particularly on the former. . The
proposal Is that all their property, in
cluding Westminister Abbey should be
sold and converted into cash for the
rei:ef of the debt-afflicted country.
The attention attracted by the Idea
is dde largely to Its source, it being
brought forward by the cftatlst, one of
the widely read journals of finance and
trade. The writer of the article asserts
the annual Interest charge of 500,000,000
pounds, which he estimates Kngland is
facing, will hang like a mill stone
around " the nation's neck unless some
means is fou.nd to get rid of it.
Hence the necessity of making , a large
hole in the debt "by one large sacrifice."
with those who have the most money
Contributing the most in the emergency.
"There . is no reason," argues the
writer, "why the church of England
shculd be supported by the whole popu
lation. It is not believed in by the
whole population, and, therefore, it has
lost all right to exact support from those
who do not attend Its services. What is
wanted now is that the whole property
of the church, without exception, should
b used for the freeing of the country
from debt. . .
"It has been suggested , very little
could be got for Westminster "Abbey.
We differ entirely. We belie-v e that a
very large sum could be got for , West
minster Abbey. The wise course would
be to put the abbey up at auction and
allow - every great chrrch . to - bid for it
aa much as they please." '" ;

Grandma s Powdered Soap is the finest bar
soap ground to a powder. Just a tablespoonful
or two in the dishwater makes the most splendid
suds you ever saw.
It is almost uncanny the way the grease
spots and kettle and pot rings disappear when
Grandma gets after them. Takes the place of
both bar soap and washing powder. Does the
work of both. Saves one purchase. Goes
farther. Cheaper to use.

Below is one of our numerous proposals of how your sayings are
guaranteed by a legal reserve insurance company:
x AMOUNT, $1,000.00.
PLAN20 YEAR ENDOWMENT PAYABLE AT DEATH
AGE 20 YEARLY DEPOSIT, $43.21, or SEMI-ANNUALLY, $22.47
- THIS POLICY IS FULLY PAID UP AT AGE 40.
THE CASH SURRENDER VALUE OF THIS POLICY AT AGE OF 40 IS $1,000.00.
Your protection for 20 years would have cost you nothing and you would get $135.80 interest on your money.
You pay this policy up while young and during your productive years when you can best afford it, it constrains
you to save and develops in you the traits of character that will make you a success. If not thoroughly convinced
that this is the policy for you to take, vise 'with a friend who is 20 years older than you are.
' V ? 1 THE COST f
Of this policy is a little less than 12c per day, this is a saving which is commonly thrown away on shows, cigars,
THERE IS NO WAY TO LOSE.
After the third year you have the choice of the following options which increase with each payment:
Cash Surrender Value, Loan Value, Extended Insurance, Paid-Up Insurance
Life insurance is the only necessity which has not increased in cost in the last few years.
You are in good health now Why not consider this insurance while you can pass the examination. The INFLU
ENZA killed about 400,000 people last fall and winter, disqualifying for insurance several times that many.
