Ho Hays: "If bin BOOtiuh wunts to ooril6 to ho front in mining, like North iru and Western Pennsylvaina, A/eat Virginia und at present Uubama, it must, welcome the breign laborer. There should to no prejudice or antagonism owurd him becuuse he is issentiul to tho development of he vast natural resources of his section. The Hungarians, Slavs, l'oles und ltaliuns are obor, peuceuble people. The lyrains and Greeks are tine nerchunts und ull of these us a tile muko gooti citizens. It is mportunt to keep out others vho prey upon these plain, t?nest people." 'ostal Savings Depository. The post oflice at this place vas designated a saving do lository on July 1st and depos ts are now being rocoived. It s to bo hoped that our people vill take advantage of this op lortunity to lay away nest eggs or the future. Spending is a lubit: so is saving. The habit mco formed abides usuully hrongh life and helps in a arge way to dovelop a safe, :ouservative and useful citizen. The postal depository pro ?idea ready means whereby lersous over 10 years of ago ?.an lay by sums of from 10 cents o $100, with tho guarunteo of once," declared an olllcial of he Slate Health Department, n discussing the case yoster lay,''that the llrst, death of vhich we have receivod official lotitlculiou should be one that mphasiaed the importance of be precautions taken in the tatute. Heretofore, persons vho died without physicians kttendance in country districts ,nd in many towns, could he niried without a permit o r without an investigation of any ort. The death might huve leou due to natural causes or it night have been tho result of 'ioloiiee, but in neither case lid the State have any macbin ry except the coroner for the ascertaining tho facta. The leath reported by Squire Heath vns clearly accidental, but hud t been duo to violence, the ocal registrar, in carrying out he provisions of the law, would lertainly have uscorlainud that act. This new statute will be if great service to the civil law md to the individual, und it vill undoubtedly be of value in letecting deaths due to vio ence." Broad Tires. Counties like Wise and Tnze vell which aro spending largo urns of money on their high vayB cannot afford to havo h e m destroyed by narrow ires of the vehicle now in gen iral use. Bread tires aro being .dopted in eastern counties and ither states by the noossary egal action, and will consorvo ather than destroy roads. In ome localities tho people who tay the taxes aud own the cvo? um? HUB wunesxeil 1110 III' <imiini: of the removal of a liatoric land mark from Hotol. For more than half a ' :entury it has housed famous ' neu of this country. J. Pior- ' )ont Morgan at one timo kept a ' mite of rooms constantly en- 1 raged there, and it is related ' ;hul during the Cleveland ad ninistrutiou the negotiations ' ?y which the Morgan syndicate 1 leqnired uu entire issue of 1 (overnmout bonds authorized ' >y tho last Democratic prosi- 1 lent wero conductod under the ' ihelter of the Arlington Hotel, 1 n the rooms of tho financial 1 nagunto. 1 The old hotel has boon sold 1 ind will be removed to bo re- ' >laced by a new structure, one ' >f tho moBt costly over orected ' n this city of wonderful public 1 iiiilditiKS. When complete it ' s estimatod that tho tho now < mild im: will cost over three 1 nillion dollars. The furuish ngs and ornaments havo been m sale at auction for many ' lays, and scores of men and vomen whoso names are fum t liar to the public have been < niyiiiK brie n-brac, rare vases | ind pictures. At times the . uictiou room rosombled a social | unction, mid some fabulous trices were paid for articles j laving little intrinsic value but unions for their associations. To Prevent Flie9 From Breeding. Screen stables if possible. Remove the manuro at least ! ,wice a week. Keep the manure, while it is n the stable, in a closed bin or tit. Kvory time the stalls are lledned, und the manure placed n the pit or bin, sprinkle it vith dry plaster (powder gyp mm) or slaked lime. Me sure thut you sprinkle the tracks and crevices of the bin >r pit, us well us tho cracks be ween the plunking of tho stull loors. If tlies begin to breed in stored nanure they may he killed by boroughly spraying i t with teroseno or Paris green, and hon pouring on enough water 0 wash the oil or poison well n. The objection to the usu of ceroseno is that it ruins the nanure for fertili/.iug purposes. V solution of iron sulphate (ono lotted to a gallon) applied at he rate of one gallon a day in 1 stable where one horse is kept vill kill all tho maggots. It losls about $1 per hundred lOUudB; so thut the cost in keep ng (lies from brooding in a ouo lorse stublo is about one cent a lay. It is well to abolish old-fash - oned outhouses where possible iVbero this cannot bo done u iberal amount of lime sliouid ie used, applied in small imounts daily. Chloride o f irae is better than slaked lime, >ut slaked lime is better than tone at nil. Garbage cans should be horoughly cleanod after empty - ug, and tho contents should bo iprinkled with crude oil, limo ir kerosene oil. It is usually conceded that .ho editor of a newspaper gets ill that is coming to him. As Iii* is usually criticism of one lort or another, a little word )f praise goes a long way with js. For instance, wo wero .eld by a lady of this town one lay last week that she felt that ?ve deserved a compliment for .he clean, wholesome write-uos Arli ?marked to her friends that! ur accounts of tho Rociall rfaira in our town compared to! ur credit with those of tho city apers. As the lady, herself, i very prominent socially, and ? ;ems concerning herself and unity are eagerly chronicled 5 y more newspapers than the J 'list and by considerably big? er ones, we felt quite proud of he compliment. : a new ?uuetin. The Stut,? Department of Agriculture is now sending out the June Monthly Bulletin. This issue goes to about 6U,00O farmors, who are scattered in L>very one of the ouo hundred Counties in thin State. These Monthly Bulletins are fresh and practical for tho Beason in which they uro issued. The Juno Hullotin contains a very pactical and instructive article [>n Why Wo Cultivate Tho 8olt. Many peoplo think tho soil is cultivated simply to kill the weeds, but this Bulletin shows Ihoro aro moro important reasons than to kill weeds. It says tho soil is cultivated to lousen it, to lot the air in. that iho plant roots need air, as well as man. The loose soil nU *o lots in heat to warm up the loll and hasten plant growth, ind cultivation loosens the soil to allow the tiny roots to push jut in their growth and lastly the cultivation is to kill the woods. The article fully ex? plains the importance of theso important results that are ob? tained through cu'civati?n of .ho crops. Jutlook Bright In Coal Fields Charles W.
