The Germans in the invaded territory of Delirium aud Northern France are levying a tax on dogs. This tax amounts to thirty marks per head. Whosoever is not will ing to pay this tux is compelled to deliver his dug to the military au thorities) whereupon it is killed. The skins are transported to the German glove factories, while from the grease, oil is made for motor cars. In the region of Lille several cars full of dogskins have been seen on their way to Germany. The Illinois Central railroad is making a vigorous campaign in which it is seeking to educate the people— motorist especially*—to use ordinary precutiou to prevent ac cidents at railroad crossings. Take the history of all the recent ac cidents where autos have been struck by trains at crossings and ninety-nine times out of the hun dred. You will liud there accidents were caused by carelessness or foolish risks cR the auto driver. When the chauffeur learns to heed the railroads slogan "Stop! Look! Listen!” the awful accident which result tu loss of life will cease Tue news of the death of Capt. D. P. Davis, which occurred ai his home in Columbus last week was received by his numerous friends in Btarkville wilh deep re Bret. Capt. Davis who lived not for himself uloue but for his fel lowmau, was a man of af fairs in the business world, but st the same time he was a philan thropist and a friend tu humanity, and never forgot in the rush and hurry incident to a busy life, tu cheer, assist aud counsel those who needed his assistance. Like the character described in Bam W, Foss’ poem— “Uc tiveU l>y tbs bids ot Ibe ruH'l Ami wa* a iris ml uf mso," A long aud useful life is closed, and the hundreds of people in all parts uf the State, to whom he had endeared hiu.**‘f, .will ever ebtiiih kill memory good deedi. Stop ibe Leaki in (he Farm Business. An inventory taken once a year .will show the net worth of the 'farm. Hv comparing these inven tories from year to yenr the fcxacl progress of the business can be found. Many times n farmer feels discouraged at the end of the yenr because his cash is short, when an inventory taking in growing stock and crops, and unsold products would show that he had made a nice profit for the year. In taking an inventory the farm er must go over all of his property '■ at least once a year. In this way his attention is called to the con i dition of his stock, machinery or jsupplies; to needed repairs; and ;to missing tools that have been | borrowed and not returned. Any tme before the tush of wor’r ! starts is a good time to go over the ■farm property ind make this list. The next step in stopping the leaks in the farm business is to keep a record of receipts and ex penses of the farm throughout the year. From these and the invent ory the farmer can figure not only his net worth but the -profits and losses ns well. If you don’t quite understand how to do this the Farm Management Department of the Mississippi A. and M. College will explain it to you. Think Abont This. Did you know that n cow giving only one and one half gallons of milk per day for a year would give 4,597 pounds for the year? Did you know that should this milk rest 4 5 per cent butter fat, this cow would produce almost 212 pounds of butler fat? Did yon know that this butter fat at the present price would be worth more Ilian $70.()0t Did you know that the skim milk from this cow for a year would be worth $29.98 for hog fcedl Did you she manure from this cow for a year, if saved, would be worth more than $23.00t Did you know that the calf from this cow would bo worth some thing f Did you know Ihat the feeds ue cessary to feed Ibis cow. it bought, would cost between $40.00 aud #SO 1)0 per year? Did you know that you could raise practically all the feed for this cow and make, money selling it tu her? Did you know that some of the dairymen in this county are sell ing 87.00 worth ot butter fat per cow per mouth f Did you know that a local creamery paid $50,000 00 to farm ers in this section in ten mouths? Did you know that a few good cows would be a line weapon for lighting bull weevils? Other farmers are making money out of their cows; why not put yours to workf Printing for Farmtis. When I get u letter from a farm er written in ink on a a printed letter head, I assume at once that here is a reading man and an in telligent farmer and much the contrary is the impression when I get a letter scrawled in pencil on dark, poor paper, which makes it hard fur old eyes tu read. Then another advantage in the printed letter head especially when the letter is from a business man, is that many of these business men make their signature in the most complex manner, and but for the printed name at top I could hardly know to whom to send the reply. One can guess at a good deal in any one's letter, but cannot guess at a signature that is unreadable. —W. F. Massey, in The Ppogres siye Farmer. * New York will feel better after Billy Sunday demonstrates that it has really attained its ambition to be the wickedest city in the world. The people who desire to keep their money rather than advertise usually have the privilege also of keeping their goods, Spoliating in Eggs. There are some tnings that ac" quire value with age, but eggs were never in the list till cold storage came. To show how this phenomenon is wrought, the Bos* lon Transcript tells the story of a carload of eggs —a storv which is thoroughly authenticated and which may he summarized thus? A consignment of 311 cases, collected by the Decatur, Ind., Produce Company from the hen neries of the vicinity, at 24 cents a dozen, was sold, June 8 last.tp a New York wholesaler for 24 1-4 cents a dozen. Put in cold storage,.and sold. June 22, to a vendor who held them for a rise, for 25 1-4 cents a dozen. Sold back to the wholesaler, Sept. 8 tor 29 cents a dozen. Sold by the wholesaler, the same day, to another dealer for 30 cents a dozen. Examined and'found to he ‘‘re frigerated seconds,” and forced back on the wholesaler at 30 cents a dozen. Sold, Out. 21, to another whole' ealer for 31 cents a dozen. Consignment divided, a part he mg sold for 31 3 4 cents and the remainder for 32 cents a dozen. Sold back at 32 cents a dozen. Sold again, part at 32 cents and the remainder at 32 1-2 cents. Sold again, Nov. 15, at 34 cents a dozen, 20 cases sen* to hotels, grocers and institutions at from 42 to 45 cents a dozen, the grocers retailing them at from 42 to 55 cents a dozen; the remainder at last, account being still in cold storage, Thus the eggs, bought at 24 cents a dozen, were wiihbeld from the market more than five mouths and sold for nearly twice the cost —more than twice, when the price paid by the private consumer is ascertained, Besides there were nine or ten different profits in the pricel some of them being speculative, the eggs not having been removed from stoiage, The Bird Family The wife of a Methodist minister in West Virginia has been married three times. Uer maiden name was Patridge, her first husband was named Robin, her -second Sparrow, the present Quales. There are now two young Robins, one Sparrow and two in the family. One grandfather was a Swan and another a Jay, but he is dead now and supposedly a bird of Paradise.

When there’s a will there’s a way, but sometimes the way is so darned elusive the will gets tired out before it finds it. It may be quite a shock to King Constantine of Greece, to pick up his morning mail and not find un> ultimatum m it. President Wilson has put four years of hades behind him and has four years of hell in front of him. He can have it. Much anxiety is manifested in Congress for fear there may be some money left when that body adjourns March 4.

Morning and Evening This prose poem was written by Rob Tavlor, of Tennessee. It is a most beautiful effort in strong keeping with the mind which pen* ned it. It has appeared in print often, but is worthy o* frequent reprinting for the thoughts which will engender iu the minds of the appreciative reader: . “I qaw the morning, with purple quiver and burnished how, stand tip-toe ou the horizon, and shoot sunbeams at the vanishing dark ness of night, then reach up and gather the stars and hide them in her bosom, and then bend down and tickle the slumbering world with straws ot light till it woke with laughter aud with song. A thousand bugle calls from the rosy tires of tbe e.-sl heralded her com ing i a thousand smiling meadows kissed her garments a= site passed, aud ten thousand laughing gar dens unfurled their flower-flags to greet her. The heart ot the deep forest throbbed a tribute of bird song, aud tbe bright waters rip pled a melody ot welcome. Young life and love, radiant with hope aud sparkling with dew drops of exultant joy, came hard in hand, tripping aud dancing in her shin ing train, aud I wished that the Heaven of the morning might last forever. "I saw the evening hang her silver creseeut ou the sky aud rival splendor of ILO dawn with glory of the twilight. I saw her wrap the shadows around her, and with a lullaby on Ler lips, tock the weary world to rest; then I saw her with Iter dipper full of drops and IteV basket full of dreams, slip back to the horizon of! the morning aud steal tbe stars again. The gardens furled their flags of flowers and the meadows fell asleep, the-song of the forest fell into silence, and the melan choly waters whispered a pensive good night to the drowsy byjjs aud aleopy hollows. Life end love, with halo of parting day upon j their brows and the star light tang* j led in their hair, walked arm in I arm among the gathering shadows and wove all the sweet memories of the morning into their happy evening that it might never end. “Tims life steals up from the dust. We wake to think and sleep to dream. We love, and llaugh, and weep, and sing, and sigh, un til death steals us back to dust again.” Go to Sunday School Day. Sunday February 11th, is "go to Sunday School Day’’ in Missis sippi. The day being thus desig nated, every Sunday School Supei* intendent, Teacher, and Worker in Outibbeha County is urged to use the greatest diligence to secure a one hundred per cent attendance then. The Seoretaftfes will please keep records and send thesef to the Coun ty Secretary as soon as convient. Our county, at the last State Convention, was a banner county because our assessment was paid. Now Oktibbeha has au opportuni ty of being a, "banner county” for attendance next Sunday, and it is possible for your school to he a “bannerschool,” WILL YOU HELP IT TO.BE. We hope every person who pos sioly can will hear the story ob Sunday of ‘Jesus and the Woman of Samaria.’ It is an old, old story but grows richer ever* time it is heard, Let us again urge every , Sunday School worker to do all he can to have a large attendance at his School Sundays then when tha r • records are sent in, let’s see whose school has the best. , G.
