It is a matter of fact that the states
and the nation spend' millions of dol

neglect almost entirely the most : im
portant crop of all the human crop.
With the great facts of modern medi

all allowed to go- to waste because
they are not taught to the people
and are not applied by the people to

Professor McKeever, has issued the
following bulletins: The Oigarette-

a success almost from, the beginning.

The result of the recent election in
Canada made reciprocity . a thing : of
the past and, as a result, the things
that were to have benefited the buy
er of grain and the, consumers of
flour' and . meat will not come to pass.:
The-defeat of reciprocity in Canadi,1
gives .the whip handle- to the - trusts
In the United States; and will cause
higher prices; for. grain, flour and.
meat in this : country. In the face
of these conditions, as the farmers of
the South consume much, more wheat
and other foodstuffs, than they pro
duce,; it is essential that they change
tactics and start a new regime' in
farming. ;c:--;si'.-.;fV; V."
This Is an old song, we ; know. One
that the ; farmers of . the South have
heard overand ; over again.' But. it : is
true, nevertheless, ' and the farmers .of
this section will never . become truly
Independent until; they adopt it. The
Augusta Chronicle.. in:dlscussing this
subject says: - "The x fall-time this
fall -is the best time, to begin the
work. Plant heavily of oats, espec
ially selected: seed and best varieties,
plant" some -wheat, some rye and bar
ley to. help along 'the live stock for
they, will need It during the "coming
winter, and spring' and, they will save
grain and hay This is a lesson that
should be easily learned by the far
mers of the cotton belt, for no mat
ter what the price, "of cotton they can
not " buy hay- and grain cheap enough
to warrent them n ' buying it." . ;
: "It is gettin g .to-be . a "common prac
tice among the mtst progressive far
mers to improve their field crops by
selecting their seed - from the most,
promising ,, plants." And this ,1s the
only radical means of securing' a great
er yield per acre and the sooner thjls
plan is put into universal practice
just1 so soon will bur farmers become
self-sustaining. The - land they culti
vate should produce more cotton and
grain to the acre, and this can be
accomplished only by proper seed, se
lection, and i thorough cultivation. As
soon as the farmer begins to pay at
tention to what he might term the
small and ' Insignificant things that
come before him from day to'-day,
there will open up an era of prosper
ity such as lie has never known be
fore; It has opened to thousands and
the "way is open to thousands more.
A better day Is his, it . Is his birth
right,": and the sooner he taikes, posses
ion to what is offered . the sooner he
will become prosp'erlous and happy
'"The propriety of seed selection and
proper cultivation is bing demonstrat
ed daily by many of our . Southern
yield up beyond their expectations by
following sound ' progressive : methods
in their work. And what they have
done , is -possible for every farmer to
accomplish." What . .the . Southern
farmer wants to do is to enlarge his
production in the way of grain props,
thus enabling him td keep a large
number of live stock which will bring
him greater returns, than trusting to
his cotton crop alone. His salvation
lies in a greater, diversification in
everything that he produces.' No
better advice could be given the far
mers than the. Chronicle gives above.
If all he farmers of the South would
follow it. this would scon become the

The Columbia State writes interest
ingly on this subject,. as follows: ' .-;.
'The Beattie trial; in the manner of
its-s conduct, : has elicted .favorable
comment from' newspapers ;in " the
great cities of the country.. The New
York Times,- for example, Vctimmends
the fairness and manifest endeavor,
to hold the balances evenly by T the
presiding judge and contrasts the xlig
Wty of the ' proceedings in the little
country court house with'-those ; of
similar trials in its own city . :
"In the South good court house
manners are' not uncommon;' They
are not generally so good now. asthey
were .years' ago, but most of the jegu
larly elected judges in this State are
faithful to the traditions of the older
days. Moreover,? the i character : of
Southern juries Is steadily improving,
in spite of the discouragements that
the enforcement ; of the criminal' laws
may sometimes receive, asr.an; example,-
by the abuse of the' pardoning
power v In Tennessee- during the aat
terson administrations ;
'. "The surprise that metropolitan
newspapers, betray, in spite of their
efforts . to conceal it, at- the; ability
displayed by. "country'' lawyers; and
judges is amusing. The . lawyer : of
the better class in a suiall.city or vil
lage is usually more fully and round
ly informed than , the practioner , of a
great city, or the- obvious ., Veasbn
that he has more, time to master the
principles of hiS; profession: -The
great city has lawyers who are, spec
ialists, .whom the village lawyer can
not meet on equal terms in the form
er's particular '. department of prac
tice, but one seldom finds in the great
city a lawyer capable- of conducting
either a criminal prosecution - or a
civil action with a high order of skill.
That sort of lawyer Is -not at all un
commpn 1 in the Southern court house
towns and from their ranks usually
come the. judges of the stamp of
Judge Watson who presided : in the
Beattie :trial. The late . Joshua H.
Hudson ot South Carolina, who SDent
JpJs whole life in a town of 2,500 peo
ple, would have won no less' recogni
tion from, the people of this Republic
had he- been placed on the Supreme
bench, at Washington than he' did' win
from his fellow citizens, of South Car

sThe late Mr. George Davis" (attor
ney general of the Confederate States)
had occasion about 1878-to visit New
York on business connected with his
profession. To a friend who asked
what was his -impression of New
York la wy ears, he replied that . they
were often admirable as specialists
(maritime lawyers, ' ; patent lawyers,
etc;), but that they were not to be
compared with the average country
lawyer in North Carolina in legal in
formation and efficiency. Thejate
Mr. Hale used to .say. that, as a rule,

cation which Admiral Chadwick, for

has given for the loop of the 'Brook

bound to be taken cognizance of by
Congress., '.A
The decision of the court' of inquiry
in the iamous Schley-Sampson case
has become a-part of the record, of
AdmiTal Schley and would be part of
the data to be used in case an official
biography of .the hero ' of Santiago
were written: This fact taken in con
nection with Admiral Chadwlck's his
tory of the fight has -put a new
phase on a caes - which was regarded
as being closed for all time- ...
It was a cass in - which it was
thought likely by the enemies of Ad
miral Schley that no new testimony
was possible. Naval pfficers ' are
thoroughly aware cs? the value of "Ad
miral Chadwickfe1 contribution to tFe
"facts" andthere is official; grounds
for theN statement that Congress now
has - enough on which to re-open the
case and expunge the stigma of the

Schley. ,- , -s : ; : '

againt discrediting the judgment ot
the court of Inquiry which decided
the Schley-Sampson controversy. ?

For this purpose special bills - are in

This LittlePlant Does Host Every-

'In. Mexico there is a. plant -that
feeds a greater number of persons in
more different ways thaijn Is known
perhaps in -any other country of ,the
world,"- s'aid W. W. Lucas, topographi
cal engineer for the - Mexican Trans
continental Railway. ; . -
"The maguey Is a-species of catus
which' thrives in greatest extent arid
profusion on the , great mes a of the
republic of Mexico, v It is' perhap the
most remarkable plant,as; regards its
utiH-zation; of aU the - more .common
tropical plants on earth. -In. this coun
try a plant of the same'. - family Is
known as the century plant, but ot
course the variety in; Mexico . Is dif
ferent,, and , here apparently the plant
is us'ed only for" ;ornamenil purposes.
This plant throws out tiny sprouts
with from five to eight branches edg
ed ; with small espinas or needles
which identify It as of the cactus fam
ily. It does not attain to ita. full
growth until its fifth year, but it may
be made useful two years" earjies. In
Its third year one or all of its branches
are' tapped, making , cavities in : the
sides of the, branches in which the
sap or Juice of the plant collects. .
"This latter liquid is what is known
in Mexico as equa miel, an efficacious
medicine "in ; many disorders of the
human ; system, but,: it must be used
as such the first day after it is pick
ed. If allowed to stand fermentation
takes ; places and - the acqa . miel
changes into what is known as the
most common of the, intoxicating
drinks of Mexico pulque. ' ,
"When distilled pulque is the' great
national drink of Mexico and is
known as mescal; The mescal distill
ed in the state x of San LuisPotosi is
regarded as the. best quality and is
called tequila. . ' ' '-;
"It is hot only in its medicinal and
drinking qualities that the maguey
plant is useful. It is one ot the most
important fibre plants in Mexico and
is. .utilyized In the weaving of baskets
and clothing. :..It. is a bought fibre,
