Some of the loneest journevs . are made by the tiniest birds. The hum ming birds go from the middle , States to. Mexico and even South America and back every year". Blackburnian warblers were still common at , the equator in Columbia on ADril 27 '.1911. though they , arrive in New York by May 10, and most of them breed still further North. - : . . Some birds for reasons hard to learn take a different course" coming Nortn from that going South. The Connect ticut warbler, fairly .common in SeDt- ember and October in the Atlantic States, is never seen three in the spring, invariably making its north ward journey west of the Alleghany mountains. ' Most small birds make their long flights at night and' feed and rest during the day. but the swal lows reverse" the rule- Generally the northward flight is rapid, condensed and soon over, but the return movement begins for some birds as early as the Fourth' of July and it is In progress until nearly Christmas Some birds 6ver a wide erea, spread nearly across the con tinent, while others have a narrow channel out of which they seldom go. The redpoll warblers wintering in Louisiana come northeast up the At lantic seaboard to Labrador, while those from Florida start northeast for Alaska, their paths Crossing in Geor gia at right angles. A few-speckles leave the far north in August and September. . makine- enormous flights . over the ocean to winter homes in the southern hemis phere. Thus the golden Dlover leaves Nova Scotia and-flies without a stop straight to South America, .wintering on the pampas of Argentina a jour? ney of some 6,000 miles. 2.500 being over -the . ocean without a stop even or rood. ' On the Pacific side the golden plover leaves the Aleutian Islands and goes 2,500 miles to Hawaii without a rest and winters vn the southern hem isphere from the Society islands to Austrialia. With this bird .it.

Wonderful as is the enormous Jour ney of 12,000 to 15,000miles each year, there is at least one bird whose an nual trip exceeds the plover's by sev eral thousand miles. The Arctic tern nests from Maine to within eight de grees of the north pole,, spends its summers In the land of continuous day and in its migration goes to a region In the antartic equally near the south pole. ' . ; In its round trio it mav cover as much as 22,000 - miles nearly eaual to flying around the world at the equa tor, in all the year the only time it experiences full darkness is during the few nights passed in the neighbor hood of the tropics, for its summer about the north pole is one long dav as is its winter about the south pole. . But although this is much the long est journey made by any bird it is not in some ways as remarkable as the plover for the tern is a sea-bird and can at any time dive into the water and feed on the abundant supply of fishes and other marine, animals, while the plover Is really a land bird, lnca- pahle of feeding at sea. So it, has to fatten up- before -leaving its summer home "and make half of its enormrjna autumn journey without food. The Farm Is the Thing. ' It . is" a significant and heartening fact that the nation-wide discussion of the high cost of living, its acuse and ist remedy has recently taken a new turn. . r ' Men are awakening to the truth that te solution of this problem lies .very laigei m lmyiuveu agricultural con ditions, in the production of more food through modern methods of farming and the development of .rural life along more . attractive lines.v There can be no doubt that the ex cessive cost of , many commodities is due in; considerable paft to artificial causes, such: as "monopolistic control and the tariff ; which 4b the mother of the evils of the trusts. And these are conditions -which can be remedied through wise and progressive legisla tion.";- - . : ' But it is equally apparent, that the supply of food is continually becoming Inadequate to the demand. Its rate of production falls far shorty of keeping pace with the Increase of population The time' is approaching when there will be simply not enough bread and meat to go around The only hope of salvation from such a state of affairs lies in bringing the the farm, to its due standard. Tht prosperity of the cities themselves rests upon the agricultural activities o -fthe country about them. - ' a- rural lire is made more attractive through goo3 roads and better pchools and more remunerative through mod ern methods of farm business; we shal have a greater number of farmers and a greater yield from the soil and there by-the 'burdensome cost of living wii be ' wonderfully reduced.

Grlggsv Secretary and Treasurer Westbrooks Elevator Co. and formerly Cashier Bank of Danville, says: "About ten years ago mv eyesiarht becran to fail to such an extent that it became necessary for me to consult a specialist. My trouble in creased until I found it necessary to consult sev eral others. My case was diagnosed as Atrophy of " the Optic Nerve, caused by impoverished blood supply. The progress of my trouble was slow but steady, with never any relief, until finally my physician advised me that nothing1 further could be done. About this time, about two years ago, I could not see to read, and my range of vision was so short that I could not see anything at a greater distance than fifty or seventy-five feet I often found it difficult to recognize ac- Siaintances when I met them, distinguishing em more by. their voices than their features. In May, -1909. a friend advised me that 'if the. pnysician's diagnosis was correct, aulamwui cure you, because it will purify and enrich the blood, increase the flow, and build up the sys tem; but it will take a lone time and the im provement will be slow.' . - 'I did not believe one word of this, and con sented to take MILAM because I did not think it could hurt me, and there might be a bare possi bility that it might help me. After six weeks' use I began to notice a slight improvement in my sight, which has been slow but steady and with no setback. Now l can read newspapers with ordinary glasses, can distinguish large ob jects two miles away, and have no difficulty now, as far as my sight is concerned, in attend ing to my duties as the executive miicer oi a corporation.. ". .' "I am still careful not to tax my eyes unrea sonably, because I realise that I am not cured; but hope, and am more and more encouraged as time passes, to believe that the continued use of MILAM will cure me. v "I think it proper to state that my general health and strength have also improved in the same ratio as my eyesight, and I attribute this to the use of Milam. ...
