Tick Eradication With the boll weevil practically upon us we should take active rsteps to rid the county of the cattle ticks in order that an ave nue may be opened up to escape the financial peril that surely -r.T.rnif’C' rbo arnwer in this section. The devastation of the boll weevil cannot be discounted, and the man who shuts his eyes to the near approach of this pest is blind to actual facts and real conditions. In those counties that this pest lias visited the production of cot ton has been fearfully reduced. In counties where the annual number of bales were as much as twenty-five thousand, the pro duction was cut down to less ; than five [thousand bales. Gins in many communities were never run, and those that did run had certain days in the week only that they were open for ginning. These are facts that cannot be •disregarded. To avert the calamity that will befall us when the boll weevil destroys our cotton crop we must raise stock —cattle and hogs. There can be no question of pro fit in this business if thejmarkets of the country are open to us. IT however, we continue as one of the few remaining tick coun ties of the State, then[the value of any cattle that we may raise will be materially reduced. Un less we eradicate the tick we are shut out of the best market. The question of cost is very small, and we should not hesitate to begin at once to get rid of this enemy to cattle raising that is j costing the county may thousands i of dollars yearly. _ r Why Living Costs.More.

As Strong Today In Russia and the Balkan States as It Ever Was— Superstition Leads Frequently to Violation of Graves. Proofs of the persistence of the belief in the reality of vampires are to hand from a small Russian village. Some three years ago the head of a family resident there died, and since that date nine other members of the family have also died. Relieving that their deaths were the result of the roving spirit of their chief, the remaining surviving mem bers of the family assembled together a few evening since, disinterred the remains, and cut off the head, again burying the body. They hope by this means to prevent any further evil happening to the family. The belief in vampires can be traced back for more than two thou sand years, yet there is not on record a single authenticated instance of a vampire having been seen by a hu man being, and there are no data available by means of which the ori gin of the belief can be ascertained with any degree of certainty. These blood-sucking apparitions, or “living, mischievous, murderous dead bodies,’’ as one writer quaintly term ed them, were common to all coun tries, whether Occident or Oriental, but it was generally agreed that the phenomena of vampirism were to be seen only in persons cursed by their parents, excommunicated by the church, the illegitimate offspring of parents themselves illegitimate or people attacked by vampires after death. Quite recently there wras reported in the daily press the story of a Hun gar inn iurincr who u«ai uug up lire corpse of a supposed vampire, stuffed three pieces of garlic and three stones in the mouth and then driven a stake through the body. Servia and Bulgaria follow closely to the wake of Hungary, and In the eighteenth century an official examination of many graves was made, and the re port of such examination embodied in a public document. It states that a large number of undecomposed bod ies, undoubtedly those of vampires, were discovered. In 1863 there was an epidemic of vampirism in a Bul garian village. The inhabitants became so fright ened that when night set in instead of retiring to rest in the usual manner, they all assembled together in one central hall to pass the night in com pany. While they were away from their houses, however, the enraged vampires entered them, turned every thing topsyturvy and smeared all the pictures, ornaments and furniture with blood and dirt. The Russians hold tenaciously to a belief in the reality of vampires, but they attribute the birth of a vaumire as due to an unholy union between a witch and a werewolf, or a devil. In many parts of Russia watchers re main by the dead right through every night until burial. Inspiration Suggested a Way Out. It was the morning after, and he was telling the fellows at the office about it. “Tom and I spent last eve ning with some friends and were re turning to our hotel at a rather late hour. We walked in the middle of the street, for we felt so good we wanted room in which to expand. At a place where some work was being done there was a pile of dirt about five feet long and about ten inches high. Arm in arm we made an effort to step over the obstruction. We met with utter failure. Try as we might, our feet seemed to be too heavy to lift over the obstruction. We were about to give up in despair and resign ourselves to being marooned on that lonely street for the rest of the night, when I had one of those rare inspira tions that come only to men of geni us.. ‘Tom,’ I exclaimed, ‘we are saved; we will go around this pile of Ji.. > A xxA xx-a ”_TVoncaa fMtV Star. Zeppelin’s Adventurous Career. “Let us resolve to live long,” said a German cavalry officer, addressing comrades who had assembled to cele brate the seventy-fifth birthday of Count Zeppelin. “The evening shad ows were already gathering when this man surprised the world with his work. That sometimes happens to a man whose morning and noon were quiet and devoid of adventure, but his has not been a life of that kind. In the Civil war in the United States he barely escaped with his life, in the war of 1866 he plunged into the River Main, horse and man fully accoutred, and swam the stream; in the war of 1870 he risked his life by riding unaccom panied into the camp of the enemy, and as a retired general of cavalry en titled to rest he appeared in a new role, allowed himself to be laughed at and then, with a great leap into the air, became the most popular man iD Germany.” Peculiarities of English Law. Women cnnuot be lawyers in Eng land. but they can be queens, mar shals, champions of England, sex tons, church wardens, constables, workhouse governors, returning of ficers, overseers of the poor and sheriffs of assizes. And yet the objec tion of the law society to a woman entering the legal profession is that she i3 not a “person.” Certainly when English law entitles her to fulfill so many functions she cannot be called i “nobody.”—Rochester Post Express GIVE UP WORK GRADUALLY Man Accustomed to Regular Duties Makes Mistake When He Sud denly Ceases All Labor. Many business men at the age of fifty or flfty-flve work eight hours a day and enjoy it. They will tell you they feel aB young as they did ten years before. Then some of them conclude they have enough of this world’s goods and retire. It is a well-known fact that brain or muscle work forms In the system a poison, and if we keep on working a condition which doctors call auto intoxication Is produced. Which means that the antitoxin nature has produced in our bodies haB not been enough to offset the poison of our burned up energy. Rest and deep sleep are supposed to clear the body of all poisons and waste. But it has been proved in the cases of persons who use drugs that after they have taken into their system a certain drug in increased amounts for some months they can stand an amount which would kill a dozen persons not accustomed to the drug. From the minute the drug was in their system nature started to work to produce in that body an antitoxin to fight the poison they were taking. Nature gets many habits of her own, and she gets into the habit of expect ing to form an antitoxin to battle with that poison or drug which that | body has been taking daily, and she j produces it daily. Now suddenly let that same body stop taking into it the drug it was used to; nature does not stop form ing the antitoxin. No indeed; she goes right on for weeks and months foam ing the antitoxin she has been accus tomed to form, and the little fighting army to fight and being of a poison ous nature themselves, turn from lit tle workers, when they have their own work to do, to bad workers, with no work, and start fighting the good cells of the body, producing a self poisoning which Is likely to cause J_iL If a man haa been working daily for years and the energy used up by work has produced a sort of poison ous waste, enough to cause auto in toxicating if hot cleared out by rest and sleep, would it not seem reason able that nature had dally in that man’s system been forming an anti toxin to offset the poisonous waste and that when he suddenly stops work the same condition takes place as with a person who takes poison? The antitoxin cells, finding no poison ous waste to work on, turn and work on the good cells of the body, causing auto intoxication and sickness and many times death. It would seem that a man giving up work should do so gradually. Sacrificed All for Hobby. At Ivry, a Paris suburb, has just died ! a remarkable old man, a septuagenar ian, named Fraissard. He died in pov erty, but had he chosen he could have j become one of the most fapious Euro- : pean sculptors. As it was, he finished life as he began it—more or less pen niless. When a boy he was appren ticed to a marble cutter, and he at. once discovered his powers in this di rection. For fifty years he had contin- | ued to execut the most beautiful works of art, mostly in mosaics. M. Frais sard's masterpiece took him nearly twenty-four years to perfect. Tt is a black marble table. In the middle is a chessboard, on either side of which are playing cards arranged as fans. On the table are dominoes and dice, cig ars and cigarettes, and sevral coins in gold and silver. All these are, of course, inlaid. The materials in the table, beside the black marble, are agate, onyx, porphyry, malachite and lapis lazuli, the tones of which are black, red, orange, blue and white. Ninety different kinds of marble were also used. p- 1_--J U . . ’ An elopement by aeroplane which has yet some features of the old-time elopement is reported from Niort, France. Two months ago a good-looking young airman was giving exhibition flights at Niort. A pretty governess fell in love with him and begged him to take her up in his aeroplane. A few days later the airman eloped with her In the machine, and did not descend until he reached Issy, 250 miles away. The girl’s father has now lodged a complaint against the airman, whom he accuses of having adbucted his daughter and detained her against her will. The governess, when she ap peared before the police commissary, said that she had eloped with the air man of her own free will and declared that she would be eternally grateful to him for flying away with her. She add ed that, as she was of age, she was ; free to do as she pleased. The father’s complaint was dis missed. Women in Turkey. Dr. Mary Ellis Patrick of Boston, president of the American College for Girls in Constantinople, who is now in this country, says that she finds Turkish girls apt pupils and very anxious to learn. As many wom en are now being called to take the places of men who have fallen in battle, the value of an education is better appreciated than ever before. Today there are several thousand Mohammedan girls and women at tending the university. One of the girls who left the school less than a year ago is now chief editorial writer on the Tannin, the leading Young Turk publication. She has written two novels dealing with the political situation in Turkey.
