This will be heard before Judge Shelton today. shade is sickly and unsightly. The animal of darkness is restless, trouhlesome and fierce. And what is there worse than a sickly, un sightly plant, or a wild ravenous beast? Nothing but the man whose , home has been cold, stormy and ; cheerless, with sun shut out till! everything above him is black, every room a swamp, every picture weeping willow. He is worse than a funeral procession, with hearse and casket moving silently through the streets! These have a place and serve a purpose. But a murmuring, faultfinding man or woman is the worst thing nature ever produced. Never happy, nev er allowing others to be happy in their presence They carry a face as cheerless as a tomb stone and as gloomy as heaven's arch in a thun der storm, minus the lightning. Their presence is like a discordant organ ground by the hand of fate; they drive a hearse through every social gathering, hang pictures of gloom on the walls of home and hasten the death of the sick. We are provoked to sing in their pres ence the song of the sainted Bliss: Go bury thy sorrow, the world has its share; Go bury it deeply, go hide it with care. Go bury thy sorrow, let others be blessed, Go give the world sunshine, tell Jesus the rest." If you want cheerfulness in your home you, must have sunshine and genial hearts. Plan to live in the sunshine; ' if there is a pleasant room in your dwelling, live there; if there is a dark room shut it up; keep the children out of it; if you have troubles shut them up there never take them into the jtamiiy circle - give home the sunniest thought and plans of your ' whole lie and till it with love, joy. peace,. gladness sunshine.' LaBelle Star Rotation for Potatoes. Potatoes are the most common and popular vegetable grown on the average farm, and yet not all farmers are able to grow enough for home.needs. In some cases the tubers fail to set and mature prop erly, at other times the plants are eaten up by bugs, and not . infre quently the entire crop is destroyed by the .blight. Potatoes as a rule should not be grown on the same land two years A new disease has attacked young pigs, in the Gantt district of Audrain county. It . is a large parasitic worm about an inch .. in -.-length which is found burrowed in the flesh of the shoats. Many farmers have lost pigs by this disease within the last fortnight. : In no other part of Audrain county is the disease ap parent. It does not attack mature hogs. The state veterinarian has been notified, and. an investigation will be made. About a hundred hogs have died. Troy Eree Press, Pratts Stock and Poultry Food. Southern &. Spalding.

By rotating the crop and plant ing on new ground each year these pests will not be so' troublesome, and the crop of tubers will be larg er and better in many ways. Po tato rot and potato scab are caused by planting potatoes for a succes- sion of years in tne same sou, or from planting seed infested with spores , of the diseases. It is a good plan not only to ro tate the potatoes but to fertilize the soil each year with potash or phosphorus or both, the potash aid ing in search formation and large tubers,' and the phosphorus aiding in quicker and better maturity, to gether with good quality of the tubers.
