Jim Leiper, the wide awake Tullahoma correspondent of the American, sends that Journal the following: "Looking north towards one of the railroad switch tracks, Tulla homa people were surprised and not a little mystified at seeing what appeared to be a small mountain, which had risen sud denly as if from the earth. Up on getting a closer view, it prov ed to be a veritable mountain of white clay jugs. Each one had stamped upon it in letters of blue the name of a well known distill er, and varied in sizes from one half to three gallons. The jugs were for use in the' retail trade and will be duly distributed to "dry towns " after being filled with Jack's No. 7 whiskey. While it has been common to see shipments of" 2,000 in number, the present one is the largest yet seen here in one lot. The pile was about 25 feet by 10 feet and 7 feet high and consisted of 7,000 jugs. It is stated that this one establishment gives constant work for a large plant to keep it supplied with jugs to be used in the enormous and fast frowing "jug buisness." There are two other large distilleries within a short distance of Tullahoma that are large consummers of jugs, which are used in the "jug busi ness," and the amount of liquor shipped daily would be a revela tion to the unitiated. It is con ceded by all parties, Prohibition ists and whiskey people, that the jug trade is increasing at a rapid rate and the question arises: What is to be done about the matter? It is evideut that the whiskey germ has not been kill ed, not even scortched." Best Oough Medicine for Children.

E. W. Cheek, Dep. C. & M. This April 21, 1904, Agriculture For The Common Schools. llyjas. B. Hunnicut. (Cultivator Huh. Co., Atlanta, Ga ) The book which conies to hand under the above title is the work of an experienced educator and farmer and has been adopted for use in the public schools . of Georgia. The author, after completing a regular course and teaching a few years, spent many y e a rs fanning in Coweta Co., Georgia, where the success of the methods adopted on his farm gave him a more than local reputation and ed to his being made Assistant Commissioner of Agriculture for the State. After a short service in this office he was elected to the chair of Agriculture in the University of Georgia. For the past five years he has been editor of the Southern Cultivator, one of the oldest and most influential agricultural papers in the coun try. The character of the book reflects the varied practical ex perience of the author. In the first place it is not a conglomeration of the elements of various sciences related to or contributory to the science of Agriculture, as so many text books on the subject are, Very justly, Mr. Hunnicutt seems to have the thought that the impor tant matter was to state in clear and intelligible terms the ele mentary principles of successful farming and not to waste time and dissipate the energy and en thusiam of the student on the terminology and elements of other sciences. We sar justly, for the other course, in addition to being a pedigogical mistake, defeates one chief end of teach ing Agriculture in the schools: that is, the arousing of such an interest in agriculture itself as will tend to keep young men on the farm. In the book before us this end has been kept in view all the while, so that not only is the matter itself cast in a popular form which will hold the atten tion, but every opportunity is seized of picturing the attrac tions of p roperly conducted farm ing and of fixing in the mind the most important lessons and facts, both by word and by means of very appropriate and suggestive illustrations. The makeup and printing of the book is good and it ought to have many readers among the farmers as well as their children. Written by a competent South ern farmer, it deals with South ern conditions, and it seems emi nently fitting that it should have been adopted as a text hook by the schoolbook committee- of Georgia: a fact that makes at least one exception to the saying that a prophet is not without honor save in his own country.
