ALONG THE SOUTHERN HIM Sections Favorable to the Location of Farmers. The farmer who is not satisfied with the prices he is obtaining for his pro ducts; who desires an agreeable change of climate, or who is anxious to obtain a home at low cost, should buy a farm in the vicinity of some busy manufactur ing center of the South, where farming products are the highest, the prices of land the lowest, and climate and sur roundings the most agreeable.

In a recent issue of the Sing Sing Star of Hope, written and printed by prisoners, the following ap peared: "Don't be a fool just because you happen to know how." How many bright boys and girls get into trouble which ruins their reputations, and sometimes makes criminals of them, just because they "know howl" It is so easy. They want to see what it is like; want to see if they can do it, not realizing that every time they do a foolish, questionable, or . dishonest thing it forges a link in the habit chain, which binds them, and makes it so much the harder for them to retract their steps. Doing wrong becomes a powerful habit, and each time the wrongdoer escapes detection he be comes more confident, bolder and bolder, until he takes great chances and is finally caught. 1. have known sharp, cunning boys to steal just to see if thev could do so without detection, not because they wanted tho things they took. Burglars have said that there is a great! fascination in planning and scheming ways and means of getting into a house in the night; that there is a sense of triumph felt in over coming obstacles, and in taking great chances, which becomes almost a passion with them. They say that they feel a sense of great exhilara tion, mixed always with fear, when they enter a room where people are sleeping. They know that they are liable to be shot at any moment, and yet the love of taking chances,, of going to the very edge of the dan ger, precipice, goads them on, often, as much as the desire to obtain the booty. A second-story burglar, who had been arrested and tried many times, and who had served more than twen-ty-five years in New York prisons, once told me that he felt a real pride in his skill as an expert, in entering second stories in the night, facing all sorts of dangers, and experien cing all sorts of hairbreadth es capes, and that he often did not care so much about what he might get as for exercising the love of ad venture, the passion to take chances. He began by making a fool of him self just because he knew how. He wanted to see what he could do with out being detected. Many a girl has met her ruin just by the fascination of taking desper ate chances. She just wanted to show those who knew her that she was entirely able to take care of her self, even in questionable situations. She went on daring and risking, fluttering about the fatal flame in a reckless manner. Then some day a scandal blackened her name, and, whether guilty or innocent, she found her life marred, and when she came to herself, she discovered that she had made a fool of herself. Success. When to Cry. There are millions of little boys and girls in the worlds who want to do just the right thing and the very best thing. But they do not al ways know what just the rie-ht thing is, and sometimes they cannot tell the very best thing from the very worst thing. Now I have often thought that there are little boys and girls who cry, now and then, at the wrong time; and I have asked many of the older people, but none of them could tell me the best time to cry. But the other day I met a man older and wiser than any of the rest, lie was very old and very wise, and he told me: "It is bad luck to cry on Monday. "To cry on Tuesday makes red eyes. "Crying on Wednesday is bad for children's heads and for the heads of older people. "It is said that if a child begins to cry on Thursday, he or she will find it hard to stop. "It is not best for children to. cry on Friday. It makes them unhappy. "Never cry Saturday. It is too busy a day. "Tears shed on Sunday are salt and bitter. "Children should on no account cry at night. The nights are for sleep. "They may cry whenever else they please, but not at any of these times, unless it is for something very seri- ous. I wrote down the rules iust as the old man gave them to me. Of course they will be of no use to the boys and girls who are nast six, for those children do not cry. The wise old man meant them for the little ones the millions of little boys and girls who want to do just the right thing and the very best thing. Mary Elizabeth Stone, in August St. Nich olas. Concerning the Indians. When cold winter days come I like to read about Indians, their home life, employment, weapons, etc. I have a few Indian relics: a hoe, an arrow head, a beaded watch case, a vase, a lizard about six inches long made of deer skin and covered on the back with beads. And now I have learned to weave baskets out of raffia as the Indians do. One day last fall we were at a hotel and talk ed -with John Deer, the son of an Indian chief, who is ninety-six years old. He is an Osage and his home is in Indian territory. He told us of -their fine forests, good game for hunting, good schools, and their medicine man, who is now 103 years old. He gave us his picture. It was a penny with the Indian head. I have learned about 200 Indian words some of them from Hiawatha, some from other books and papers, and one piece of poetry in their language. When I am older, I want to "-o to their reservation, and maybe learn all their language. Here is the first verse of "Jesus, my all to heaven is gone:" Jesus ne te tah ye moo win, Is mik kaka ee to tate; we yak piko nee ma me son nest a kee kaka ee to tayon."
