It is a well known fact that
Ralls county soil will raise any
thing that is planted in it,
everything growing to perfec
tion. Last summer a boy living
west of town cut a pumpkin
vine in two and inserted the
end connected with the root in
to a jug of milk. The vine grew
rapidly and the big pumpkin on
it began to swell big. It was
immense. The boy's mother
cut the pumpkin to make pies
of the other day and great was
her astonishment to find in it 25
pounds of pure butter, equal to
the best creamery. Talk about
Ralls county soil. Nothing
beats it. Ralls County Record
Many persons wonder why
pork and even bacon have a
bitter as well as a salty taste.
notwithstanding the salt may
have been drawn out of it by
soaking in fresh water before
cooking. The reason of the
bitterness, in most cases, is i
that the pork was salted down
in a water-tight barrel or box
that prevented the brine from
draining off. The heat in the
freshly butchered meat tends to
dissolve the salt while the
moisture which the latter draws
rom the meat forms a brine
that will rise and cover more or
less of the meat unless there
are means tor it to drain off
just so certain as the brine
formed by the meat watei and
salt covers the meat for any
length of time the bitter taste
referred to above will be quite
pronounced. Even though pick
ling of the meat be intended,
the brine arising Irom the first
salting should be allowed 10
drain of as it contains bioud
and other soluble impurities ex
tracted from the meat, then
make t he pickle from clean s.ill
and fresti water. A bench, r x
top or board platform of sulli
ient space and strength sliuu!d
be used on which to salt the
meat, not piling more than
three pieces high, and thus af
ford full opportunity for thor
ough dr. linage as the meat brine
fjrrrs, and allow the air free
access to it. By this means the
meat is purified while curing"
and taking salt and will be free
from bitter taste Ruralist.

Three centuries ago the great
statute of James I came into
operations. It made felons
without benefit of clergy all
who "shall'1 use, practice or
excercise any injuration or cou
jurative of any evil and wicked
spirit, or shall consult covenant
with, entertain, employ, feed
or reward any evil and wicked
spirit to or for any intent ir
purpose or take up any dead
man, woman or child out of bis,
her or their grave or any place
where the dead body reseth. or
the skin, bone or any part of any
dead person, to be employed or
used in any mnatier of witch
craft, enchantment, charm or
sorcery, whereby any person
shall be kil led, destoyed, wast
ed, consumed, pined or lamed in
their bodies or any part there
of Under tilit act witches
were executed for more than a
century.
Id England the old time cure
tor small-pox and measles was

When George III was crown
ed King of England the cere
monies were marred by ceitaiu
blunders for which Lord Effing
ham, earl marshal, was respon
sible. Lord Effingham saw fit
afterwards to apologize to the
King, "There will be no such
blunders at the next coronation
your majesty," said he. King
George had a sufficiently strong
sense ot humor to laugh.

One of the greatest afflictions
to any person is that of self

age in combating the "ills that

A majority of people ere born

ents, who do everylhing and se
cure every possible opportunity
for their offspring, denying
themselves, and allowing their
children to bask in the sunshine
of their indulgence.
By-the bve the hopefuls ar
rive at the age when they
should assume the responsibili
ties of manhood and woman
hood. Untutored and undisci
plined, they hesitate and avoid
action as long as they can.
Finally their parents or guard
ians, having run their race and
finished their labors, pass to
their reward, and t heir depend
ents are f orced to take up some
thing from which tbey expect
to derive a living. Ignorant
and inexperienced through their
own lag'ardness and i lie over

had charge of them in their
youth, they -ire absolutely
without self-reliance, have no
knowledge of human nature or
confidence in themselves, and
