ifgy acres of land in the South will

acres in the North. This statement
,was'made by a northern man to a New
SOrleans newspaper reporter, .1 ames E.
Grayes, of Grand Forks, South Da
Sots, who has been on a visit to sev
eral Louisiana points, makes the ob
ieryation. lHe cites the fact that for
isveral months in the year farming in
i enorthwest is unprofitable because
It is so cold no farm work can be
:done. He says a farmer's horses eat
Ir heads off in the stable unless
Sare-engaged in other work, some
Ailng not possible at all times.
Furthermore a big hole is made in
profits because of the fact that north- '
Srafarmers must wait until the frost
Isoutofthe ground bef,re they may
proceed to plac" it inl t.'nldition to
srnsomethin. Ili the S,,ct!I things

Another interesting - obl,:"-rvation
litdeby Graves relates to the reason 4
'4 some of the northern .:.,n who
e a0 down here become dissatisfied.
.ORthis point he says:
'The only reason I can see why
l:re southeru land is not settled by
,lrmers from the North is that, after
tiey livehere for a few vears, they
k:d that the farmer here does not

, The next thing is that he cannot
Sletre the labor to do it for him as he
W., it done. This causes many of
gIntoget into a dissatistied state,
prevents them feeling at home.
While this is a small thing, however,
is certain that the man who owns a
o 1d farm in the South is much better
:l than the man who owns a bigger
ihm'in the North."

HATRED OF SCHOOL-DISLIKE OF STUDY.
For the cure of the Above Named lhis.
ease the Following Prescription
and Treatment is Iteeom
mended.
PRESCRIPTION
Take the following ingredients in
the proportion named:
per cent
Thorough knowledge of subjects
being taught .....................50
Careful preparation for each
recitation................. .....10
Interest and enthusiasm in the
subject........ ..................10
Sympathy with the pupil's dimf
culties .................... ......10
Appreciation of the pupil's efforts...10
Kind, cheerfuf tone of voice when
teaching.......................10
Mix thoroughly.
TREATMENT
This disease is most successfully
cured when the doctor instead of the
patient takes the medicine, and the
patient gets the effect of the medicine
by pleasant association with the doc
tor. Therefore it is recommended
that the teacher take a large dose one
hour before breakfast. Then, begin
ning with 9 a. m. take a dose each
hour until 4 p. m. In very bad cases
the teacher may take a dose one or
two hours before retiring at night.
Continue the treatment during the en.
tire term, unless the pupil is cured
sooner. If faithfully administered, it
rarely requires over thirty days to
effect a cure, but to prevent a return
of the disease, or other pupils catch
Ing it, it Is recommended that the
teacher keep a supply of the medicine
on hand and take a dose whenever
any symptons of the disease appear.

Washington, Dec. 28.-Congress
will be urged to rid the army of all
negro troops when it takes up the
Brownsville affair. Army officers
and members of Congress are giving
this matter much thought. Four reg
iments would be affected. The sug
gestion grows out of the fact that ever
since the incident leading to the
Brownsville affair and the troops dis
charge, a wave of crime seems to have
swept over the negro troops.
