For several years there has been a ;
movement in the south for smaller
farms. This movement has been con

much for the welfare of this section.
The old plantations were manageable

The south is becoming more utili
tarian. Descendants of those caval
iers who charged with Rupert and
melted their plate to support the tot
tering throne of an unworthy Stuart
have scanned their lessons well. Life
is activity, hurry and turmoil. It
still wmuld be an elysian existence
forever to loiter in the shade and yell
to Pompey for another julep—but it
is no longer practicable.
This month will see two of the fine
old plantation homes of Barbour
county go under the hammer. His

estate alike are to be sold. Some of
these days when the south gets enor

times may be revived. —Birmingham

STRANGE CRATER IN ARIZONA
Geologists Have Offered Several The
ories to Account for This Singular
About forty miles from Flagstaff.
Ariz., in the midst of a great plain,
there is a saucer-shaped hollow about
three-quarters of a mile across and
600 feet deep. The rim of this strange
crater rises between 130 and 200 feet
above the surrounding plain. Rocky
fragments are scattered for several
miles around the crater. Among these
rocks many fragments of meteoric
iron, some containing minute black
diamonds, have been found. The in
ner walls show that the crust of the
earth was broken when the crater was
formed; yet no volcanic rocks exist
there. Geologists have offered several
theories to account for this singulai
phenomenon. One is that an immense
meteorite made the hole, and that the
meteoric fragments just mentioned are
remnants of the falling star. Another
theory ascribes tlfe origin of the cra
ter to a tremendous explosion of steam
!n the rocks beneath, and a third com
bines the first two by suggesting that
the blow of a fulling meteor, striking
the earth’s crust at a point where
subtet ratiean water had accumulated
in the neighborhood of heated rocks
was the cause of the explosion.

Danger of Gasolene Fumes.
In a letter to the New York Med
ical Journal Dr. T. D. W. Pinckney de
clares that public warning should be '
given in regard to danger from'fumes
where gasolene is burned and cites

was rendered helpless and almost un

little or no warning of danger in the
