VOL. IX. The South, The Ideal Place For Poultry. The South is a land without a rival in its bright mornings, sunny noons and starry eventides —without a rival in green fields, silvery streamlets and azure heavens. Italy may have bluer skies but they are beyond the Alps: Switzerland may have clearer lakes but tiiev are shut in by narrower boundaries. No where are there as many broad acres under as wide a scope of unremitting sunshine. Nowhere are there as many brave bodies making rich soil for vegetation as rises from the honored graves in the land of the “Conquered Banner.” The South! What a world of melody tills the air at the touch of the fairy wand of thought recalling “Dixie” and “The Girl I Left Behind Me.” The South! What a world of industry has arisen from the ash es of her vanished past: what a world of unused material is grow ing on her surface ; blowing in her breezes and gleaming in her sunshine for the almost virgin industry of poultry culture! The industry that should appoint in every farm yard a gallant Chan ticleer to herald the dawning of the morning hours and halt the dancers at the midnight of the closing year. An industry that should make merry music for the hillsides and the dales, and mer ry hearts for the matrons, maids and males, and merry jinglingof the guineas to till the purse that erstwhile was but trash. Musing on the retreating years of five decades that have silently slipped into the infinite guidance of Him who gave them birth, we see the plantations of the “Old South” white with cotton bloom sweet with the odor of the ripen, ing sugarcane and resounding with the deep throated harmony of Contraband Corn Songs ris ing and swelling in dulcet meas ures to the Hashes of the cutting blade and the moving of the nimble fingers as they lay low the mellifluous stalks and bag the white pods which, by and by, will be transferred into a harvest of gold. These w T ere the days when the toil of man was the on ly factor counted in the nation’s wealth. These were the days when the mothers donned their robes of silk and the graceful mantillas draped their ease-lov ing shoulders, whose highest mission was a place for loving heads to rest and loving hearts Vo deal out their timorous tales lot romance with some princely \swain of southern chivalry. These were the lotus-eating days of dreamful peace. But a change came over the homes of our lux urious laud in answer to the red cry of war, and though bathed in manly blood and washed in women’s tears and dotted over with silent cities of the dead, it brought a change of conditions and opportunities and opened a new world to woman. Labor is now dignified for all alike, and made almost majestic to woman, when she crowns it with success —a success adorned with the grace of a tender hand. No long er must the mothers and sisters and wives and sweethearts sit with folded bands and dream the STARKVILLE, MISSISSIPPI, FRIDAY, APRIL 15, 1910. day away, for the world of action invites them. And no pursuit now open within their grasp is more suited to their strength, or productive of greater reward than the perfecting of the farm vard fowls whose intrinsic worth and natural beauty respond so readily to painstaking care. And in no land can these fowls be brought to greater perfection at so little expense of mind, muscle and money. Indeed, with our salubrious cliqiate. our vast ter ritory, our semi-tropical sun. our stretches of green and our long, lovedream summers, more eggs and more downy leathered things are possible to the South than anywhere else in this great em pire of God. We only need wo men as guardians of the poultry yard to make this one of the most lucrative tields of business, affording also a graceful and healthful employment, curing ennui and soothing griefs. I am a breeder of Bulf Orping tons. My “Joyous Gard” poul try yards are hedged about with bonny sweet-briars, stately haw thorns and modest daisies and daffodils, and within are my birds of golden wing almost convert ing the ancient fable into a vcri tv of the hen that lays the gold en egg. Far in excess of my supply is the daily demand for eggs. Why will not more breed ers help answer this crying need? Why should we in our favored section, lei our neighbors of the North bear off the victor’s palm? What I can do, other women can do. We need only an enlarge ment in our ranks to convince the nation that the South can have the superbest birds in Christendom. Let every woman possess the breed of her choice, only let it be the highest of its kind. Let us push our opportu nity to show our worth. Let not a scattered handful claim all the returns that belong to every wo man in a land where the wild Hower springs indigenous to the soil, and the red bird whistles in the mating time in answer to the perfumed breezes which bear him aloft in his leafy home among the Southesn trees kissed by God's eternal sunshine. Awake, my sisters! Unfurl the banner of the glorious South! Put a Buff Orpington bird high on his perch, and Hear his clear-cut, happy crow. Cheering crow! What a world of happiness his voice does show! Through the balmy air of night How he rings out his delight’ From the frilled and golden notes, And all in tune What merry crowing floats To the burnished hen that listens while she gloats On the moon! O, from out the sounding coops What a gush of euphony voluminous ly whoops! How it swells! How it dwells On the morrow! How it rends All the hatches and the pens Of the cackling and the laying Of the hens, hens, hens, Of the hens, hens, hens, hens, Hens, hens, hens— Of the nesting and the setting of the bens. Peace! to the ashes of Edgar Allen Poe The tinnabulations of whose pen is heard even in the cackling of the hen —Mrs. S. C. Bridgewater, Dixon Springs Tenn. —Courtesy The Miss. Poultryman.

If suffering from a lame, weak or aching back they think that it is only a muscular weakness; when unrlnary trouble sets in they think it will soon correct itself. And so it is with all oth er symptoms of kidnev disorders. That is just where the danger lies. You must cure these troubles or they may lead to diabetes or Brights’s disease. The best remedy to use is Doan’s Kidney Pills. It cures all ill which are caused by weak or diseased kidneys. Starkville people testify to permanent cures. J. J. Dennis, Sr., Ames St., Starkville, says: “I have used Doan’s Kidney Pills with good results and in return, am pleased to recomend them. My kidneys troubled me some, evid enced by a severe pain in the small of my back and a weakness across my loins. My kidney secretions were irregular in passage and I was forced to arise four or five times during the night. I seemed to be gradually growing worse and when I learned of Doan’s Kidney Pills, I procured a box. The benefit I derived from their use convinced me of their great curative powers.” For sale by all dealers. Price 50 cts, Foster-Milburn Cos., Buffalo. New York, sole agents for the United States.
