The ancient mariners measured the) tbe middle of the river for a rest at
steed of their vessel by means of a log
let out astern with Hue attached,
which, K'ing played ont as fast as the
vessel moved showed in a few minutes
how many feet it was moving. From
this it was easy to compute the rate
of speed per hour and this was entered
on a book which was called the log
book, or dmply the "log." Gradual
ly other items were added, and the
whole made a record of the progress of
of the thip. The Scotield family
h greed to send us the log or account
of their progress and the following is
the interesting record of their travelH
from their start at 5:15 a. m. Wednes

postmarked from Cairo, the junction
of the Ohio and Mississippi riveis, and
instructions were to send their next

Louis. The "log" was prepared for
us by Miss Muriel Scofield, one of
tbeir brigbt young daughter. It reads

We acknowledge tbe receipt of a
very interesting 33-puge booklet ou
fur-bearing animals, entitled "The
Farmer's Bet Friends," by Prof. Jno.
F. DrauKhon. Nashville Tenn.
From a volume of experience and as
a result of extensive observation the
author declares that fur-bearing aui
mals are tbe farmer's best friends; and
throughout the booklet bis declaration
is supported not only by experience
and and observation of farmers, hut
also by the statements of high autbor
ties such for instance as the Agricul
tural Department at Washington
which as the result of scientific ex
perimentation nas found that foxes,
skunks and the like render the farmer
a valuable service by destroying the
things that destroy bis crops. The
booklet reviews certain of tbe Agri
cultuial Department's bulletins rela
tive to its investigations of the matter
and gives tba department s warning
tnat ne growing of crops is sure to be
come difficult in proportion to tbe
destruction of these fur-bearing ani
mala; tbat tbe farmer s pests are sure
to increase with the decrease of the
animals that destroy these posts; tbat
with the otter extinction of fur-bearing
animals crops will be wholly at
the mercy of these pests.
Tbe department estimates tbat these
pests which constitute from 80 to 90
per cent, of tbe food of foxes and some
of the other fur-bearing animals de
stroy crops and frnit trees to an
amount in excess of EIGHTY MIL
LION DOLLARS each year; and its
estimates are based upon actual inves
tigations of the stomachs of fur bear
ing animals.
Tbe department's statements in re
gard to the fox and other fur-bearing
animals being of great value to the
farmer are corroborate! bv numerous
letters in the booklet letters from ex
tensive landowners, successful farm-
eis. In tbe booklet Prof. Drangbon
does not claim for fur-bearing animals
toat tney are entirely innocent or in
capable of wrong doing but he asserts
and his assertion is supported by
what appears to be incontrovertible
evdence tlat for every dollar's worth
of carnage done tbe farmer bv foxes.
skuuks and some other fur-bearing an
imals, the farmer is directly benefit
ted to tho amount of ten dollars
by reason of , these tame animals
destroying his pest?, such as field
mice, moles, pocket gophers, etc.
This booklet also gives a svnocsis of
the recently enacted Tennessee law
rugulating the setting of steel trans
and the killing with gun foxes -and
other fur-bearing animals. Tha pen
alty for each violation of this law is a
fine of $25.
A corv of this booklet should be in
the hands of everyone who desires in

the mouth of the Mussel Sboala canal
we had to go aronnd a dredge and
were shown the wrong channel. Tbe

We went in at 11:54 and at 12:19 we

Since I last wrote uncle Nathan Mo

await until bis change comes.
1 don t euow wnetner anyone cares
much about what I believe or don't
believe. I believe in God the father
and in His Son. Jesus Christ, and
believe a whole lot of tbe church rules
and regulations are not in barmony
with the design and teachings of
God The Ten Commandmeuts are
the law and commandments of God
bnt men have added unto them until
about all the real social recreations
of this life are under the ban. Actu
ally some people believe if a christian
dances they ore very wicked and fal
len from grace. Now, I don't believe
any such thing myself. I bave heard
preachers say no ladies wonld dance.
well, l differ wltn tnein, and l guess
in David's day and time there were
plenty of ladies wbo danced, and they
danced because they were full of joy
and gladness. Dancing is a very an
oient mode of expressing joy and glad
ness and about the only real, true
method tbe human family has of ex
pressing tbeir joy. People don't dance
when sad or sorrowful. Think of it
anyway you rleaee and there is less
evil attached to the social dance tbau
any other social recreation among us.
Dancing is not forbidden in all the
Scriptures, as I can find. There are
two things tbat are soul and body in
epiring and tbat is music and danc
ing Good, lively music, sucb as
"Dixie," makes n fellow feel lively.
and there is no sweeter music than tbe
fiddle and many old grandmas will pat
tbeir feet when a good musician is
playing for them. If we had no inns
ic we would bave no dancing. I think
and believe a Sunday school picnic
should always be coupled with music
and dancing, but this is only an old
man's belief, and you can have it for
what it is worth.
Well, I spent Sunday at Foster
Falls. I attended Sunday school there
and was mrprised to find such a splen
did Snuday school and in such fine
working order. Homebody Las been
doing a splendid work and from what
1 could gather, my old comrade, r.
M. A i many, is the guilty man. 1 sus
pect tbe parents of those bright-eyed,
rosy-cheeked boys and girls are guilty
of being in a conspiracy with Bro. Du
Bose and Bro. Almany. Now, don't
you all deny it, people, for I believe
can prove' you guilty. The Sunday
school was fine and so was Bro. Du-
Bose' sermon, and now, youug people,
let me ca.Il your attention to bis abort
lecture at tbe close. Try to get as
much joy and happiness out of life as
you can. I wrote the first part of tbis
letter before I heard his sermon and
bad the thought on my mind, and
am confident there is no clash, only be
cautious and careful for there is dan
ger upon tbe right and upon the left.
He baptized one adult and one infant.
I've no criticism to make regarding
baptizing infants. I'll leave tbat for
people who have different opinions to
do. God, so far as I can learn from
tbe Bible, got tbe cbildien into his
fold before he had any organized
church, to-wit the children of Abra
ham. Well, after dismissal, we all
repaired to F. M. Almany'a for din
ner. The dinner was fine and there
was plenty for all. There were about
one hundred or more preent and ev
erybody seemed to be friendly and
kind. Comrade Almany's children
serin to take delight in honoring their
father and brought great boxes and
baskets of provisions for the occasion,
but tiie children in honoring their
father and mother did themselves
proud and I have no doubt, feel good
over what tbey did. Bro. DuBose and
Sister Almany were the last to quit
eating and I, well, I tried to do jus
tice to the well-cooked viands. One
lady insisted that I should try her
cake and I did and to tell the whole
truth it was tbe best cake I ever ate.
Sister Almany seemed to enjoy herself
though I am catisfied she worked like
a heroine to make the dinner a suc
cess, and I vote ber a compliment,
but you needn't tell her that I even
offered to pass any compliments, for
she didn't much want to speak to me,
but I didn't care for that as I was
