One Reason, Perhaps, For the Interest
Taken In Baseball.
How shall we explain the absorb
ing interest in baseball and football?
In baseball we have a game combining
three of the most deep seated racial in
stinctsthe instinct to throw, to run
and to strike. During untold periods
of the life history of our race survival
has come to him who could throw the
straightest, run the swiftest and strike
the hardest. To throw something at
something is almost as natural for a
boy as to breathe.
Throwing, batting, running, are no
longer of any service in this age of
mind, but thev were the conditions of
survival in the distant past. Baseball
reinstates those ancient attitudes and
brings a thrill of cherlnhed memories.
Any one who has ever held a bat in
hand and assumed the expectant atti
tude of the batter knows the peculiar
thrill which is explained only by re
calling that his distant ancestors in
just that attitude beat down with a
real club many an opposing foe, wheth
er man or beast, and those who held
clubs in this position and struck hard
quickly survived and transmitted this
The awkward throw of girls, like the
left arm throw of boys, is widely
known. The plays of girls reveal their
own set of instincts recalling the hab
its of primitive. "We are the descend
ants of those men who could throw
and those women who loved children."
From "The Psychology of Relaxa
tion," by G. T. W. Tatrick.

his cage." Boston Transcript
Coal Hauling In Japan.
A coal truck is unknown in Japan.
It would be a nine days' wonder in the
Flowery Kingdom, for they have seen
coal hauled only by hand. The coal is
put in baskets that hold about forty
pounds aud so handled and delivered.
The baskets are piled on a two wheel
ed wagon, and two men with ropes
round their shoulders pull the wagon
to the house of the rich person who
can afford to buy coal. Then they car
ry the coal in, dump it out of the bas
kets and carefully carry back the bas
kets. The men wear white cloths over
their heads to keep the dust out of
their hair and as a protection from the

Editor Palatka News,
In your announcement column I
see that my old friend, G. F. Bullard,
is asking the voters of your county
tor the place he now tills. For for
ty years I have known him; he wa3
assessor in Georgia four years and re
signed the place in 1889 to make his
home in Florida. He helped me in a
merchandise store at Hawthorne, then
married and moved to Putnam and
then became an orange grower. The
freezes "knocked him out" twice and
then he sold his place at a sacrifice to
better educate his children. They
are now a credit to him.
His wife being in ill health all the
while has, of course, Oeen an expense
to him, but I watched him along, and
he has, with the office the good people
gave him, managed to go since these
He is one who has lived right and
made friends all the time, and 1 am
so sure that he will continue thus,
and shall watch and hope for his suc
ces in the coming race. The tried
ones of his kind are the ones to be
retained and not exchanged for new
ones who might not be as efficient.

VISIT YOUR DAIRY
Have you ever visited the dairy
trom which you get your milk? If
not, how do you know as to the clean
liness of the milk you are getting and
as to the sanitary condition of the
bottles in which it is delivered to vou ?
The bottle delivered to you today
may not have been sterilized and may
have been returned to the dairyman
yesterday from a sick room where
there is measles, mumps, whooping
cough, scarlet fever, dyphtheria or
some other contagious disease. And
this endangers the lives of your chil
dren. Is this not a matter well
worth the attention of every parent to
Consider, that in a single year the in
fant deaths in New York city were
reduced more than one-fourth simply
by providing for inspection of the
city's milk supply.
FROM THE TIME OUR MILK
LEAVES THE COW UNTIL IT IS
DELIVERED TO THE CUSTOMER
