The new Chamlier of Commerce of Colum bus ami I,o ndes County starts out full of the kind of determined enthusiasm that means piu-ce.-s. It's member. should not fo'nret, however, that it will not run itself, nor can the secrctary manajrer do all thing-. by himself. When the Members Council, composed of thirty-six lending citizens, thoroughly considers any en terprise for the good of the city or county, and decides that we ought to do it, let's every man of us get behind it as a unit and "put it over." Columbus can do anything she wants to, because Columbus Co-operates. CALLS FOR AUTO REGULATIONS. Why don't our board of aldermen place some restrictions on auto traffic on our thor oughfares? At times it is dangerous to life and limb for pedestrians to attempt to cross Main street. Not only must they dodge around stopped cars, which are in all parts of the :nid, fi,nd often blocking the crossings, but 'iK.jfHost run the risk of.bointr run over by diivors who seem to think that they alone have ."j-j&ht away. It does seem that they wouldn't wait for a serious accident to occur before reg uiatli'ift :is menace, but would see the need, and prevent any such occurrence. Starkville News. This applies to Columbus as well many other cities. as CROPS SHOULD BE GRADED. The following advice from the Birming ham Ledger is along the line that Secretary W. 11. Carter, of the Chamber of Commerce, has been advocating for farmers of this section: "If food crops are to become permanent wi.th our fanners as a business, there should be a uniformity of product. Dealers do not want mixed oats, mixed corn, and six kinds of hay. "With the Farmers' Union as a basis there can be a series of crops of one grade, from cot ton to field peas. If a whole county, or one valley, produces crops that grade, it is far eas ier to find a market. If Shade's valley produ ces black-eyed peas, it is easier to sell 1000 bushels than ten. If Blount county raises a good grade of white corn, 'ready shelled and sacked, so that a buyer can get 1000 or 10,000 bushels of the same quality, the market will seek the corn. F.uycn already know the grade of Alabama cotton; and jt i the custom to jfin it and pack it, so that the buyer knows before he sees it w hat it is. "So it must be with all our crops. They must be "of a kind;" they must be sacked or baled, in marketable condition. Then there will be no more doubt about the condition. Then there will be no more doubt about the market The great point is to have enough of some cer tain grades to supply the market, ami to have them packed ready for the market. c1 n 8 Ii Ladies!

Among the Boy Scouts The Boy'i Part in the Great Gam. Hoys, you are the most energetic lifinns in the world. Thoughtless oKIer rpl ca' yu 'azy some times, but they do not understand. You are not a bit lazy. You are all afire with eagerness to play a man's part in the Great Game of Life. You country boys may think yon ure standing merely on the edge of things, that you are only distant spectators of the contest which the strong and lucky are waging. You are impatiently waiting for a chance to jump in and try your mettle. Why you are right in the heart of things already. Those distant shouts that you hear are just echoes of the battle cry at your elbow. Get in the game? At this moment it is raging with breathless intensity all around you. Your comrades are calling. The strong and the lucky everywhere are your blood brothers. Indeed, you yourselves, are the very giants and star playeis, the central figures in the Great Game. Look around, buys! There ir hundred things for you to do; brave and beautiful things. There are vorn out aers lo to renewed, gooj 4.uds to be built, trees to be planted, new methods of cropping, and new breeds of livestock to be introduced. Or, if your aspirations be higher, if you want to reach the souls of men instead of their material comforts, why, look around you once more! Are there not wrongs to set right, drab lives and dull minds to be en lightened, tears to wipe away, causes to plead, gospels to preach? A hun dred things to do? Yes, a thousand, and everyone, a man's sized job. You cannot do them all, and you cannot do them alone. But when your work Is selected, you will find a mul titude of willing hands to help. The whole world has heard the call to service. The greatest happiness life finds is comradeship In unselfish de votion to the common welfare. This may sound "preachy," but it is the homely, practical truth. The ancient curse of country life was its loneliness. The farmer plowed alone and marketed alone. He was a solitary individual long alter cny men had learned to move in groups; therefore, he suffered at their hands, he paiii the penalty of standing alone. Cut it is a great thing for you, boys, that your fathers stood alone j planted and cultivated the same as against the world. Standing alore corn and harvested by cutting the made thorn strong, and you have in-'heads. Store them under shelter herited their strength. You, too, arc and not over live heads deep until strong. You can always more than! dry. Then beat out the seeds with a hold your own in competition with the city men on their own ground, as your fathers who went to the cities held their own. But you boys on the farm no long er stand alone. The marvelous ma chines of the age have tied you to the city, have tied the city man to you. The scene has shifted as the playground of the world enlarged. You are no longer on the side lines, but in the very vortex of the great game of life. You have only to reach out your hands and every good thing the city holds is yours; even that comradeship which alone has been the lack of country life. Farmlife. The baseball guys have gone away, for twenty weeks or more, And now the mole-skinned youths have come Amid a rah-rah roar. They'll battle 'till the turkey's dead, And then, they too must go And leave behind the sporting stage Knee-deep with ice and snow. N. O. Daily States. flail. "The yield is usually 800 to 2.000 pounds per acre, varying with the soil and season, and the market price varies from one to five cents per pound, according to season, crop and demand. "This crop is largely grown in southern Indiana and Illinois. White Russia is probably the best variety for a farm crop and is sold by most of the prominent seedsmen." POINTED PARAGRAPHS. Laughter is merely a smile set to music. Words of wisdom are few, but there are many echoes. It's easier to fall in love ,r a river, than it is to fall out. True domestic happiness is found ed upon the reck of a cradle. We feel sorry for a deaf mute when he steps on a tack in tha dark. It's a poor mirror that will not enable a man to see his best friend. A foolish woman grows old about as gracefully as she climbs a fence. What most marriell men would re joice to see is a war tax on old bach elors. Eliminate politics, religion and the weather, and there wouldn't be much left to talk about. Toadstools are often mistaken for Harvesting of Sunflower.
