Hot Springs, Va., July 15. In an ad dress on "The Need of Rural Credits" before the National Fertilizer associa tion convention here yesterday, Myron T. Herrick, former ambassador to France, urged as a remedy for whatever trouble exists in rural communities the establishment of cooperative organiza tions of farmers. The greatest of all the needs of American agriculture is, in Mr. Herriek's opinion, organized selling and purchasing' power. "Organized selling , and purchasing power is best attained through coop eration," said Mr. Herrick. "Cooper' tion must be built up by the farmers themselves by starting at the grass roots and depending on their own re source and efforts, first assembled and combined in basic units, or local co operative banks, or credit societies. The mistaken belief .that these basic, local units are merely little savings and loan associations in which the fanner make small loan to one another from their savings, hat been written into the Mm sachusetts, New York, Wisconsin, Tex as and other state law on the erron eously so-called "credit unions," and it has made those law worthless. The er ror is, most unfortunate because it had beclouded the mind of the public about cooperative banking. All these laws will nave to be recast. A rural cooperative bank is exactly what its name signifies, and something more, because it takes the place to some xtent of the country store. It possesses general banking powers, but delimits it area, restricts it operations to agricul tural projects, confirms its credit facili- ies to members, and borrows, if possi ble, only from or through the system to which it belongs. It mar be either joiift stock company or a pure asso ciation like a caving bank. The rural cooperative bank work for the individual good through the common good of its member. The main use of the fund is to buy farm supplies in bulk at wholesale to retail to members t a lower price or on better term tha they could obtain for themselves, if each were standing alone. In tiler words, the bank's grand object is to as scmble the individual resource of it member and organise and ttrengthen their purchasing and selling power. It mitk it profit-taking to it own actual necessities. A rural qooperativs ban a too manv need for fund to giv things away free. "Govertiment aid is the rock against hii h the rural credits movement ha been dashed. Particularly i thi the case with land credit. The bill which have received the most attention In Con gres provide for state aid, tax exemp1 tion, and special privilege to such a pro nounced degree that if any of them be came a law it would set the farmer part a a class bv themselves, to be pamered and spoon-fed at public ex x-nse; and aa a consequence it would bring ilown upon them the enmity of Talcum D'JerKisTalc 21c Colgate's Talc 15c Violet Dulce 25c Harmony Carnation . 25c Powders Mermen's Talc Erwin's Arbutus Boquet Janice Squibb's RusselPs, The Red Cross Pharmacy WHEAT MAKES WILD JUMP UPWARD Aa Advance of Cents Per Bushel in Chicago Top Price $i.i6.

Kvery mature bud in the'axil of a leaf contains the rudiments of a plant, brush or tree, hence the proc is forms a quick and reliable means of propagating varieties which do not nour ish on their own stock. The operation consists in selecting a fresh, plump foli age bud, not yet beginning to grow, or which is too immature or small, anu which is cut out with a "heel" of wood sbout hslf an inch below and half an inch aboe the bud. The "heer will con tain a piece of w ood, and this wood must be removed by giving it a shsrp pull with a twisting movement at the upper or lower end. Examine the bud and v.ood just removed; if the wood haa not been properly removed there will be a small hole seen in the inside of the bark, and the wood will have a tiny little knob called the -eve"; the bud is then uselcsa. If rightly done, the bae of the bud when examined from the inside of the hark will appear filled up. Po not let it get dry or handle it more than is nee-csssrv. Take a sharp knife and make a cut I ke a "T" in the bark of the stock about the same length as the shield of the bud; this rut is made either on the main stem of the tock, or near the base of its branches, and the eut goes half-way sround. Lift up the bark carefully with a thin blade of hard wood, push the low er end of the shield well into the open ing, and let the side flaps fall over to enclose it. If the shield is too Urge, eut ofT the psrt which protrudes above the cross cut in the bark of the stock. and press the shield gently but firmly sssinst the fresh wood of the stock.

How one community trains its children for the responsibilities of citizenship is described in a bulletin just issued by the U. S. bureau of education on "Civic Education in Elementary Schools as Il lustrated in Indianapolis." "The practice in the Indianapolis schools," says Arthur W, Dunn, author of the bulletin, "ia to help the pupil to understand the nature of his own commu nity life, his dependence upon it, and his responsibility for it; to develop a right attitude toward government as the means by which all memlers of the com munity msy co-operate for the common interest; and to cultivate habits of right action as a member of the community." The bulletin emphasizes the fact that "civics is not taught as a separate sub ject until the eighth grade, but that civic education is a phase of all the work of the school. The aim seems to be to make of education, not etruction in a variety of subjects, but a process of growth, during which the va rious relations of life are unfolded." Incidentally it is pointed out that "there is no 'subject' of ethics or moral education in the Indianapolis schools, but the direct moral training afforded by the course here outlined is peculiarly virile, o, also, while there is no at Umpt to give direct vocation training in the strict sense of this term, nor even any organized form of 'vocational guid ance, nevertheless the fact is alwava taken into account that the citizen-must be a worker and the worker a citizen." Instruction through the course of studv is, however, only a part of the training for citizenship given in these schools. "An understanding of community life and of government," declares Mr. Dunn, "is fruitless without the cultivation of qualities and habits of good citizenship. Instruction and training must go hand in hand. The latter is largely a mat ter of practice." Pupil participation inj school management Is a very real thing in Indianapolis, and In some schools it is carried to a high degree of effective ness. It manifest itself in the method of preparing snd conducting recitations; in the care of school property; in pro tecting the rights of younger children; in maintaining the sanitary conditions of the building and grounds; in beautify ng school grounds; in the miking of re pair and equipment for "our school"; in fact, in everv asiiect of the school life. In Indisnapoli pupil prt!ciption in the government of the school leads nst- rally into pupil participation in the J larger civic life of the e-ommunitr of; which the school itself i a part. Main-1 tsning order on the playground natural-j ly extend to niintining order on the; street in tne vicinity of the school, it is rommon for committees of older bov to look after the ssfety of younger chil dren in crossing streets ner the school. Solicitude for the eleanline and beau ty of choo'groitnd develop ensl solid tnde for the cleanlines and bestifr of adjoining streets, alley and vacant lots. School gardening quickly stimn'te home gardening and whole neighborhood have been transformed through the in fluence of the Si honls. Whether the children hn sre now tin dergoin this training for citizenship wit! in relify be effinVfit citizen II or ?t year hence cannot be foretoll according1 to Mr. Dunn. But he adds: "There Is upparently ample evidence that they are better citizens now; and, moreover, that the present civic life of the city is ap-' preciably affected by it. Where immedi ate results are so apparent and so far reaching, the effect upon future citizen ship should certainly be appreciable." , What is a Placer? v A placer is an unconsolidated deposit accumulated by. mechanical processes, carrying one or more minerals in com mercial quantities. All placers are sec ondary deposits that is, the material of which they are composed was origi nally derived by erosion of bedrock. Al though it is undoubtedly true that under certain conditions nuggets of placer gold have been enlarged through chemi cal precipitation, yet this action is negligible quantity in placers. Placers may be derived solelv bv rock weath ering without water sorting, but more commonly are the result of water trans nortntion. sorting, ami deooaition. Manv process of in-of th)! richost placers are those formed by the erosion of older placers and the reconcentration of their gold. Awful Tthought.
