ANYTHING " that is seasoned

it is a piece of wood or a tobacco leaf.
VELVET is the mellowest of smoking to

Only the best of Kentucky s Burley crop
that is, the best of the world's best pipe tobacco is

Two years this tobacco matures in great wooden casks,
so' that the peculiar fragrance and rich mildness of the
Burley shall be brought out to the full in VELVET.
Once taste a pipeful of VELVET, The Smoothest

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

things away free.

Aa Advance of Cents Per Bushel
in Chicago Top Price
Chicago, July 15. Wheat made a wild
advance in price yesterday, jumping up
yt cent a bushel in tome ease, ns
compared with Tuesday night. Just be
fore the close, the July option sold as
high as $1.16, against $1 .10 at Tues
day's finish. The upward rush of values
was largely the result of new reports of
black rust infection in the chief pro
ducing states of tne spring crop belt, and
because of signs of liberal buying tor
all other classes.

Making Unsatisfactory Stock Yield Lus
cious Fruit.
Budding is generally carried on during
July and August. 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. Tie

up the hua wnn nmi. lie nrmiy u
iot excessively tight, and the actual bud
must not be tied over, but left peeping
hroiich. The het way i to take a
niece of woolea string, wrapping it round
and round the opening, pas over the bud.

Alwavs bud after showery weather, be-

Civic Education Important Phase of In
dianapolis School Work.
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

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
