ORIGIN OF THE BOYS’ AND GIRLS’ PIG CLUB. Starkville, Nov. 2, 1910. Last fall Mr. Hugh Crltz suggested to me the idea of organizing the boys and girls of the county into a Pig Club. We discussed the matter and finally agreed on the plan carried out. We decided to offer SSO in cash prizes. We didn’t know at the time where the money was to come from, but had con fidence that the public would aid so worthy a cause. We did nothing toward getting up the money until the week prior to the fair. Just at this time Mr. Crltz was crippled, and the matter of getting up the money devolved upon the writer. The Berkshire Breeding Association had already donated $lO through Mr, C. With this as a starter I succeeded in securing the following amounts: Berkshire Association SIO.OO Hugh Crltz 10.00 W. H. Miller 5.00 A. B. Harrington 5.00 W. W. Magruder 2.50 J. A. Lamb 1.00 A. C. Ervin 2.00 L. B. Camp 1.00 Wier & Wier, rape and rye, con verted into cash ! 2.50 J. H.

We were short $8.05 of the amount we wanted, but the prize winners re ceived every cent promised them, and Mr. Crltz and I divided the loss be tween us. There has already been SIOO cash subscribed for the Pig Club another year, but we are promising $l5O in cash prizes and must have that amount. Remember, you won’t have It to pay until next October, so hand In your names*and amounts to Mr. Hugh Crltz or to me. \ We confidently expect one hundred entries for another year, and the ben efit It will be to the county cannot he estimated.

She took her dally afternoon drive until two days before her going. Mrs. Eddy was born In Bow, N. H., July 16, 1821, and was, therefore, In her 90th year. DETERMINED TO SHUFFLE OFF Farmer Uses Unique Method of Killing Himself. Corning, Ark.—John Pace In the western part of Corning committed su icide Sunday night.

WAS NOT NECESSARY TO ASK Man Win* Bel as to Sex of Lusty- Lunged Youngster on Steamer. The boat had gotten well under way, and the excursionists, having made themselves comfortable In their various nooks, were beginning to think that, after all, this world may have Its good points, when they were suddenly “brought to" with a Jerk. The disturbance that made them alt up straight In their chairs and threat ened to disseminate even the humid ity was a specimen of the volley of sound that can Issue only from the lungj of an infant that Is very angry as well as very healU>y. Someone brlgnter than the others suggested that It be taken below to sea the “horsle." n "That won’t do any good," said the female constltutent of a couple sit ting by the rail; “the only way to silence that baby would be to drop him overboard." "Him!" repeated her companion In dignantly; "that’s a girl. No male on earth would have the nerve to keep up a how) like that In a place like this, and In the face of so much re sentment. It’s a coming suffragist, that’s what It Is!” The woman looked at him pitying ly. "No little girl baby would have the strength for that noise," she said. “I’ll bet you anything you say against two pounds of your fudge that It’s a girl," said the man; and “Taken; we’ll ask Its mother," replied the woman hastily, as the familiar noise Indicated the return of the un appeased infant. But the next instant and the next one and the one after that brought no walls. And then there was a rush of wild-eyed excursionists to the scene of death or distraction, they knew not which. And then the women looked at each other self-consciously, and the men looked at each other wisely. For the mother, with no other Idea than that of patting her hair Into place, had stopped before a mirror. And the erstwhile demon of noise, with Its head coyly on one side, was smiling and cooing and gurgling at its own reflection. The man who had made the bet slapped himself on the knee. "I win.” ho said, and laughed. And the woman nodded in affirma tion and sighed. Small Wonder. We quote the following extract from a review of a farce recently produced In New York: “There is a mythical sea captain whom Mr. Son-In-Law Invented to ex plain his visits to Baltimore to pacify his first fiancee. “There Is a real sea captain who turns up in New York to confound Mr. Son-In-Law. "There Is a bogus sea captain, Im personated by a friend of Mr. Son-In- Law when the demand for the appear ance of the mythical sea captain on the part of the family becomes too In sistent "Business of all the sea captains appearing on the scene at the same time.” And yet people wonder why New Yorkers look old at 30. Start a Library. In amazingly cheap form—for a few pennies, Indeed —almost all tbs best books are to be had; and I think every one owes It as a sacred duty to his mind to start a little library of bis own. How much do we not do for our bodies? How much thought and money do they not cost us? And shall we not think a little for the clothing and adornment of the Imper ishable mind? This private library may begin, perhaps, with a single volume, and grow at the rate of one or two a year; but these, well chosen and well mastered, will become such a fountain of strength and wisdom that each shall be eager to add to his store. A dozen books accumulat ed In this way may be better than a whole library.—Drummond. Appeal Made Effective.

These were scattered where the trespassers were usually found, and a score or more of hens carried home the appeal Feminine Moods.
