It arranges for buying the interest of the heirs who might otherwise be a serious hamper - in the future pohcy; of the company. It bridges the chasm which the loss of a man's services and personality inevitably cause.

The four-year-old daughter of Mar shall Randies whose home is in South Cape, was attacked by; a -vicious hog Ihursday afternoon as she, with her mother and two sisters, were walking along South Sprigg street a short dis tance below the Houck woods. ' 'As Mrs. Randies and her children were passing the home of a man nam ed McKnight, the hog rushed out of the yard and pounced upon the child. The little girl was knocked ' down and trod upon by the brute which is said4oAveigh about 20Q pounds. Herj ch ;hes Were torn' almost to shreds aM the long tusks cut. deep gashes in her back and over her body. George Reyburn, a , teamster, who was anving aiong tne roaa, neara tne screams of the mother and her chil dren and hurried to !the rescue. He drove the infuriated animal away and carried the injured child to her home. The heavy coat that the little girl wore at the time . of the ."attack, al though cut and torn almost to pieces, is believed to'have saved her life z.s it afforded much , protection against the long tusks and the sharp hoofs. For the past few days the hog has shown a vicious tendency, and a short time ago attacked Mrs: Calvin Pind, who lives in that neighborhood. Big Combination Sale of- i .

Miller Snider, a young man employ ed as a chauffeur by S. B. Hunter of this city, split his own nose Thursday evening, and came near bleeding to death from the injury before he could secure medical assistance. The young man had -been hunting ducks near Green Brier with his uncle, William Miller, and when they had finished the sport for the day, they placed their game in a sack and tied it securely with a heavy string. After passing through Advance on their return to the Cape, Mr.' Snider concluded to divide the game ' and avoid the delay after arriving home. As his uncle drove the car, Snider drew the sack up between his knees and inserted the keen blade of his pocket knife beneath the string with which the sack was tied. As he drew the knife forward the car gave a lurch, the string parted and the sharp blade was brought with force against the point of his nose, bisecting the organ as far as the bony structure would permit The wound bled profusely and de spite the fact that tht remainder of the trip was made rapidly, the young man was very weak from less of blood when he reached the city, and the physician who was summoned cn counterd considerable difficulty in checking the flow. The doctor finally succeeded in clos ing the wound and binding it to its natural position by means of plasters.

St Louis,-Nov. 28 The cotton sit uation promjses to afford new proof that "there is more than one way to skin a rabbit." The Federal Govern ment and all of the Southern State Governments except South Carolina's Bhied away from propositions to re strict next year's cotton acreage by law. It was, the cotton farmers who begged for it were assured, unconstitu tional; it was an outrageous invasion of a man's right to plant what he pleased; it would ereate a dangerous Socialistic precedent. The farmers were told they could arrange the re striction of acreage by co-operation, and the general public was reassured against fears of another low-priced bumper CTop next year with the ex planation that the cotton growers would have , to cut their 1915 cotton acreage in sheer self-preservation. It appears, however, that there is an agency of government which can be, and will bei employed to enforce, re striction of acreage quite as effectual ly, for a majority of growers, as a straight-out limitation law. This agen cy is the Federal Reserve. Board. The purpose of this new agency controlling American credits to use its power to enforce less cotton "and more 'grain acreage in the South next year was first broadly intimated in a statement given out by Secretary McAdoo. In that statement he said: While the creation of the cotton loan, fund and its use ' under the plan will have a far-reaching and beneficial influence upon . the cotton and busi ness situation, nevertheless the atten tion of the South should not be drawn away,from the. other pressing and im portant problem with which it must intelligently and effectively deal, namely, a material reduction of cot ton acreage in 1915 and the raising of food products on a large part of the acreage . heretofore devoted to cotton.: Not only will diversification help the prosperity of the South, but the mere assurance of a large decrease in the cotton, crop next year will immediately enhance the value of the present crop. The food products which the South can . advantageously raise on a part of the cotton acreage will find a ready market at profitable prices, even if the South itself cannot absorb them with greater advantage than by buying supplies from neighboring states. If the war in Europe is protracted the demand for foodstuffs will grow in volume and intensity, and must be supplied in large part by this country. The recently expressed views of the Secretary of Agriculture on this sub ject should be read by eVery farmer in the South. The Department of Agri culture will gladly give information to the farmers of the South about the best means and methods of crop di versification suitable to the conditions of each locality. The bankers also have an exception al opportunity to aid in this commend able work. They can, in large meas ure, influence the character of crops by imposing proper conditions upon the advances they may make to the farmers. Where the bankers are not dealing direct with the farmers, the merchant who supplies the necessary credits can exert the necessary influ ence. I earnestly hope that the farm ers, the bankers and the merchants in the South will co-operate with each other for the purpose of materially re ducing the cotton crop in lSio and se curing a satisfactory crop diversifica tion. Not only should the Southern farmer plant . food crops, but he can raise attle an4 poultry with great benefit to himself .and the country a4 large.? He fan - not do this, however, Hnlesrhe reduce cotton' acreage and raises food supplies. ' . - ' .

Was Scolded. Mrs. Emma Milford, plaintiff in the case of Emma. Milford vs. Margaret Milford, now being tried in the com mon pleas court, was on the stand for several hours yesterday in her efforts to show that her mother-in-law, the defendant, had come between her and her husband, Richard Milford, causing him to abandon her, and creating an irreparable breach in the happy re lations formerly existing between them. The young woman is asking $10,000 damages from her mother-in' law who is wealthy. She stated that from the time they were married on March 20, 1912, un til her husband, who had been serious ly ill, was removed to a hospital in St. Louis for treatment, they lived pleasantly together except on occa sions when the defendant visited them at the farm on which thpy were living near Desloge. She testified that when the mother H'ai 6n';.the' premises she was not al lowed' the companionship of her hus band( f ho ws$ compelled to go with hi$ lather; through the day, and re main with her in the house she occu pied until late at night When asked if the defendant had ever. scolded her she stated that she had not, but. that in speaking of her to Richard, she referred to her as a thing" unfit for him to live with. .She' said that one morning at the breakfast table when Richard asked his -mother why . she could not make nice, light biscuits such as were made by -the -plaintiff, the defendant became very angry and said that "anyone with good sense knew that no cook book recommended the use of two dif ferent kinds of powders for biscuits." She also stated her husband rarely complained of her cooking, although at times when she would cook the steak too much he would find fault. but never became angry. When her husband was removed to St Louis she visited him at the hos pital a few days latere and saw him at his mother's home after he had re covered, but he refused to return to her, and stated that if she came to the city it would be impossible for him to ive with her on account of his moth er's wishes. She testified that at one time when she was in the city while Richard was in the hospital, Mrs. Milford took her to her home on Barker avenue, and showed her over the premises, and while there, stated that she would never permit her boy to go back to the farm, and that they had not decided what. they would do with the plaintiff. " Her' testimony was corroborated by that of her brother, Emmett Robinson almost throughout, and a Mr. Buck al so testified as to the happy relations existing between the young couple when he was working on the farm af ter they were married. Miss Cora "Morris testified to con versations with the defendant in Which she informed the witness that she UM not consider the plaintiff as a fit wife for her son, and that she never intended to allow him to come back to her. At the conclusion of the plaintiff's testimony, the joint will of William G. Milford and Margaret Milford was offered and accepted in evidence, af ter which the plaintiff rested. ' The jury was then excused while the argument on defendant's motion to dismiss "for lack of evidence was in progress. f The motion was overruled by the court, and the case will proceed at the opening of the session this morning. Maggie Tarr was granted a divorce from Stephen D. Tarr and given the custody of he children. She was also awarded $500 alimony and $50 attor ney fees." - ' .
