"The great economic question of the day is the elimination of waste, and especially tbe waste of human labor," says George Maxwell in "Maxwell's Talisman." "The man with five aeres of land, who knows how to cultivate it to diver sified fruit and parden crops, and who knows how to raise poultry and to care fora cow, appliesto the motto "Direct from the producer to the consumer" to everything he himself produces and consumes on his own table. He pays no commissions, or middlemen's profits or freight transportation upon any thing that he produces for home consumption on his own garden farm?his home crof t. It needs to be transported only from the place where it grew at that home, to his own stomach. He need bear no burde nof factory waste, unless it takes place in his own kitchon." It is a truism that human life is the cheapest of all commodities. A man will take great pains to avoid hurting his stock; he feeds his cattlo rarefully, he husbanda his beast strength, but he sparcs not himself or his family, wast ing, in too many instances, the strength and force that might by forethought be spared. But it is one of the real satisfactions of a farmer's life that hc will in any case have enough to eat. This grows at his hand, and the other? clothing, shelter, etc. ? is secondary. The burden of the artisan is first, how shall he get that to eat which is neces sary? He must toil for that, and may even miss the gain. Maxwell says further that "any in telligent, mdustrious, thrifty and eco lomical man who knows how can so -?ultivate five acres of land. almost en tirely with his own labor, that he will produce from it not only the principal part of the food for his own family during the year, but in addition a net profit in money of over one thousand iollars." This writer knows of a aiarket gar len a few miles from the city of Wasfi iogton. comprising 7 acres, and the ovroer employs three hands and uses foor horses. He has put in bank from hia aeven acres at the end of one year's operations $2,700 clear of eyp?nses. True, be is close to a pood oaarkat, and "lauls many tons of stable BMOttra from the city at a small cost. Peter Henderson, in his book on "Gardendug for Profit", tells of a man at Macon. Ga., who had an acre in isparagoa, and that his crop was sold year after year in New York from the one acre for $1,000. A gentleman in Westmorelacd some years ago sold the first crop from a quarter of an acre planted in dwarf pears for $83. The trees were four years old from the planting. $333 from an acre! It well nigh paid did he get only one crop. In deed in Delaware it is stated that now a-days if a peach-grower geta one good crop from an orchard he thinks he is paid, the trees having a short life in that State. HAS THE OCTOPUS GOT HIM? "Hon. A. C. Rraxton has been ap pointed general counsel for the R., F. & P. Railroad." That seems a simple enough and plain every day news item, but to those who watched this modern David as he came out of Staunton to go against the Goliatha of corporate influences there is altaost a tragic fear thrown out by these few words. It aeems but yesterday since the stalwart youth from the hills of Au gusta plucked the five amooth stones from the sinuous Shenandoah and jour neyod to Richmond to give battle to the giants. IJardly do the echoes of the cheeringof "the peepul" seem lost in space when from his sling the State CoporatJon Commission was launched straight at tbe forehead of their foe. No man in Virginia since the war with in so short a tiene leaped from the ordi nary ranks of caeo to sueh commanding position as the paerless champion of the rights of the masataa, a valiant leader against the merciles&corporation whose oppressions were too grievous to be meekly borne. At leact that was about the way the story went those days. Loud was the call for a place for him in the Senate, and when thrice he did refuse the kingly crown as president of the R., F. & I\ the joy of the populace knew no bounds. Can it be that the octopus has ensnared its former fearless opponent? The corporations appreciate brains, recognize ability, even at long range, and knowing this, we tremble in fear that there may be some grounds for the item as it appeared, even though once more the hope of the people may be departed.- Norfolk Ledger-Dispatch. JAPANESE AND CALIFORNIA. It is an indisputable fact that tbe Japenese are a clever people, and that they do not assimilate with the Ameri cans. "There isabsolutely nothing in com mon between the two races. They do not take any interest in anything in this country from a patriotic American point of view, because they are Japan? ese. A mere hint from the Mikado, however, will make them obey. They are all fighting men, every one of them. "We have about75,600 Japanese on the Pacific coast. They are clever and industrious. They may start in to work as laborers today, but they will notbe laborers long; they will soon be proprietors and bosscs. Japanese own about 50 per cent of the most fertile part of the Vaca Valley, and not long ago Japanese bought about 3,000 acres of land in San Joaquin Valley. The white man cannot live as cheaply as the Japanese can, and therefore cannot compete with him. The consequence is that the white man goes to the wall and is driven out. It is a question of self-preservation with us. "Japan, being a highly sensitive and proud nation, resents being legislated against in any shape or form. She places herself among the great powers, and regarda any measures which may be taken against her interest as offensive. "With 400.000,000 of people on the other side of the Pacific, and 80,000.000 of the most enliphtened and progressive people of the earth on this side, the Pacific ocean is bound to become the most important battlefield for the bu premacy of commerce in the world," said Mr. Manson. "The importance of the Atlantic has been lost, and it is the Pacific Ocean which is of far more sig nificance to us than any other part of the world." ?Washington Herald. THE COST OF A BOY. I read the other day that itcost nearly $2,000 to bring up a London boy and educate and dress him well. I said to myself, "That is because every thing in the city has to be bought and living is high"; but Ibegan to study the thing, and I found that a boy costs his parents a good deal. When we count what a boy eats and what he wears, and the school-books he must have and the doctor's bills which have to be paid when he Rets the measles or the scarlet fever. he *ill costs his folks at homc at leaat $100 a year. If a boy is given to breaking things, kicking the tocs out of his boots and so on, he costs more than that; so when I am 21 and old enough to do for myself I shall have cost my father more than $2,000. Mother cooked my food, and made my clothes and patched them, and washed and ironed for me. and took carc of me when I was a little fellow and whenever I was sick, and she never charged any thing for that. If she were dead and father had to pay for all that, it would cost two more thousand dollars, worth of work mother will have done for me by the time I am a man. Four thousand dollars for a boy! Whatdo you think of that? These are hard tlmes. When parents put $4,000 into a boy, what have they a right to expect from him? Is it fair for a boy to play truant at school, is it fair for him to play ball, go swimming, or hang aroung town all the time, when maybe his father's potatoes are not dug nor the wood brought in for his mother? Is it fair for him to disappoint them by swearing and drinking? Is it fair to forget his parents when he leaves home? ? Physiology Journai. BE UP AND DOING. Whoever becomes a man of infiuence by sitting, grieving and moaning under the harrow of despondency? What drone ever benefits the world, his friends or himself? There is nothing like action coupled with cheerfulnesa. We see it everywhere. Who is he sit? ting on that emptybarrel atthecorner? A man with no energy?a prey togrief. He does not know what to do or how to start. Who is that man standing in the market place? A lazy do-little, shift less sort of a fellow, hardly earning his bread and butter, whining hard times and nothing to do. Do you wish to becorne such a character? If not, arouse yourself. Away from the arm chair, up from the gutter, out of the downy beds! Move your arms, kick your feet and stir about. Give the blood a chance to circulate through the veins, and the air of heaven to enter your lungs. Seize the first job presented and dis patch it at once; up for the pay and get another forthwith. You will soon earn enough to pur chase a wheelbarrow or hand cart and then you will begin to live. Who knows what you will become? Energy is half omnipotent?small beginnings and large gains. A penny well turned brings a large fortune. Resolve, then, to do something and be something, and our word for it you will thank us for this plain spoken advice. FACTORS IN BACKWARD CHILDREN. Neustaedter concludes after carefully studying 95 cases of backward children in one school that it is the addiction to alcoholic stimulants or strong decoctions of tea or coffee, or to the smoking of cigarettes, or to a combination of two or all of the poisons enumerated that far outweighs in etiologic importance all of the phyaical defecta combined. After discussing in detail the effect of theso suhstances he declarea that the use of alcohol, tobacco and coffee or tea is an immediately exciting cause of hackwardness in children. ?Medical Journal. REVIEW OF OYSTER TRADE FOR 1908. I KishinK Ua?>tte, N. Y.l Oysters will go down in the year 1908 a8 being more plentiful on the Atlantic coast than at any other previous time in the history of the industry. This applies not to any particular section, New Englar.d and Virginia sharing alike, the former, however, having the advantage of selling stock and Becuring fairly good prices, while Virginia oysters have been a drug in the market, in some cases shucked stock selling for no more than the cost of opening. New York, New Jersey and Maryland, while faring better than Virginia, have not been as successful as Khode Island and Con necticut, for the simple reason that it costs more to grow oysters here than it does in the East. New York has been favored, inasmuch as growershere have practically had an unlimited sup ply of box oysters, so that both grow ers and dealers in other sections have had to come to this market in order to have their wants fillcd. Malicious attacks aa to the health fulness of the oyster as an article of food did much to injure the industry early last spring. Prompt and effec tive work on the part of health officials of New York and other points did much to restore public confidence. When the season opened up in the fall those who sought by tactics similar to those used in the spring to again influence the public against the oyster, found that the oyster-eating public took but little stock in the slanderous statements against the harmless oys? ter and the matter was soon dropped. At the closing of the year growers and dealers reported an active market and a complete return of public confidence. The one drawback at the time was the excessively mild weather which has in a great measure greatly retarded trade. While many of the dealers report that the financial returns of the last year have been less than those of the preceding year, there are many who also feel that the consumption of oys tors in 1908 waa far in excess of 1907 and that the difference in the money returns has been due to oysters beinj? cheaper during the last year. If there has been any fallingofl in the consump? tion, it has been due to the business depression. MARYLAND MARKET ALSO PARALYZED. ICambrldcrc Reconler.] Not in many years has there existed such a condition in the oyster business as now confronts those pcrsons engaged in any manner in the business. The years 1906 and 1907 were both excellent on.'s, and the oystermen and oysfeT packers made consideiable money, so much, it seemed to those outside the business, that a number of new packers started into business, while the old ones made preparations to increase their business, believing that with such an increase there would be a corresponding increase in the profits. The protits, it is claimed, thus far have, however, this year failed to materialize. Oysters are lower in the markets than they have been for a number of years, and strange as it may seem. not only is it true that they are so low as to make it impossible for the oyatermen or the packer tomake anything, but this con dition now exists after the working of the Haman Oyster Bill, which it was claimed by its advocates, some of whom live in Dorchester county, would pro duce anabundance of oysters andenable everybody connected with the industry to become fabulously wealthy. Now, after the State has expended thousands of dollars, the exact amount of which is unknown, the industry is found to be in a paralyzed condition because of the too great supply of oysters; and also it is claimed by some of those engaged in the business because very many of the best oysters in the State are run out of it to New Jersey, Delaware, Long Island Sound, Virginia and other plaees to furnish competition to our own local oysters. In this connection it may be stated that those who are buying oysters for seed purposes use only the very best, as a result of which the local oys terman has to take the leavings. It is interesting to hearour oystermen discussthe "Oyster situation as it is to? day." They all agree that our Virginia oysters were never in better condition or the flavor more to suit the taste, but why there isn't a market for one bushel of better oysters for less money, where there was a market for two bushels be? fore this aeason is the question they have different ideas about. One promi nent oyster dealer here aays "That so much attention has been given to the culture of oysters in some of the Northern States and some of the other Southern States, and they have been so successful that they not only have all they need, but they can put better oysters for less money in Philudelphia, Baltimore and Washington than our oystermen can, and he don't think the present situation will pass as the dew before the rays of the rising sun, but it has come to stay and that our oysters will never be as much in demand as they \ have been, or bring again the money that once they did." Another oyster dealer, with both large experience and large oysters, says that" little work and small pay knock the life out of no business as it does out of the oyster business That for the last nine months the work'n? people (throughout the UnionJ htve had to cut out and this has caused ih ? dull market and low price. He ia br.K..u and cheerful, says the clouds will soon pass and the sun shine again. While he waits his oysters are growing. He expects the demand to be brisk and the price good by the end of this year, and he always expects good Virginia oysters to bring a living price." , ?Westmoreland Corr. N. N. News. MAL DE MER.

Stinson. HIGH-TONED TIPPING. It is astonishing how much poorer Congressmen grow with each increase of pay, and how much like preachers and editors they become in the exppct ancy of favors in the future in consid eration of favors receiyed in the past. Nothing is more demoralizing to manhood and self-respect than the habit of ac cepting gifts?charity. The evil among editors became so rank in the days of free passes, free lunches and free theatre tickets that the average editor ?indeed, editors almost without excep tion?felt that they had been robbed when they paid railroad fare, or for hotel service or for theatre admission. It is said to be a habit among some ministers, when making purchases, to call attention to the fact that they are ministers, and on that ground to claim a rake-off. Many ministers with large salaries tamely submit to be made ob jects of charity by accepting reductions and gifts. instead of resenting or, at least, declining such proflfers as in a sense offensively patronizing. Con gressmen work their franking privilege to the limit of private business and social correspondence, and, as a class, it is said that they exact more for their money in hotels than any other class of people. Why this should be so is hard to understand. The editorialdead-beat makes some return in publicity puffs, the minister leaves his blessings, but what compensation on earth can the Congressman make other than pecu niary??Petersburg Index-Appeal. ULTIMATE FATE OF FISH. "Fish never die a natural death," said an old fish'-rman who has observed as he fished. "If they did bodies of daad fish would be floating on the sur face of the water about all the while, bacaajaa sueh bodies if unmolested would have to float. "I mean, of course, fish in naturenever die a natural death, not fish in captiv ity. And perhaps it should not be cal? led natural death that fish in captivity die. Their environment induces mor tality that fish in their native habitat would escape, and these causes mitfht be probably classed as among the ac cidents that carry the captive fish off. "If fish in their native element were never molested I believe they would never die. If they had sufficient food, which would be impossible if they no longer preyed on one another, there would be no reason for their dying. It was to prevent sueh uninterrupted ten ure of life that all fish were made fiercely predatory, if not remorselessly cannibalistic, as many kinds are. "A fish's life is a constantly strenu ousone and one entirely selfish. Afish lives only to eat and to avoid being eaten." LORD ROTHSCHILD'S COWS. When we consider that the average milk yield of the ordinary dairy cows of this country is variously put at from 400 to 450 gallons a cow a year, and that a 700-gallon cow is a remarkably good one, it is interesting to know that in theTring herds, belonging to Lord Rothschild there were four cows each of which gave considerably over 1,000 gallons of milk during the year that ended with Michaelmas. A 10 year old red polled cow, Clarissa, gave 13,577 pounds of milk (roughly, 1,350 gallons) during that period, and has further given an average of 12,233 pounds of milk a year for the three years since she has been in the herd. The other three cows were shorthorns. Darling ton Crauford 15th gave 12,370 pounds of milk in the year, and has given an average of 10,033 pounds a year for eight years; Red Rose 3d gave 11,650 pounds of milk in the year and Barring ton Duchess 31st 10,047 pounds. ?Lon don Globe. FAT WOMEN OF AFRICA. Speke, who travelled extensively in Africa, tells of a woman he saw who measured round the arm, 1 foot 11 inches; chest, 4 feet 4 inches; thigh, 2 feet feet 7 inches; calf, 1 foot 8 inches; height, 5 feet 8 inches. Speke's desire to learn the exact height of this court beauty led him to persuade her to rise from her habitual attitudeof restingonall fours. "This," he says in his diary, "after infinite exertions on the part of us both was accomplished, when she sank down again, fainting, for her blood had rushed into her head." OUR PUBLIC MEN STRONG. Bishop Hartzell in a recent address declared that he had no sympathy with that spirit of carping criticism against so many public men in the legislative, executive, and judical offices of the United States. "I have been in every great eapital in the world." he said, "and I can say from personal observation that we have j stronger and bigger public men, as a i rule, than any country in the world.'' TEMPERANCE NOTES. A German physician computes that the paapla of Berlin consume about one seventh of their income in drink. Dissention is stated to exist in the North Carolina Legislature over the premature prohibitlon law, and meni bers of that body are dropping out of the temperance column. With prohibition in effect in Atlanta, the number of cases of drunkenness tried in police courts during the past year fell off approximately 50 per cent. as compared with 1907. Other crimes decreased proportionatelv. Pennsylvania needs an Anti-Saloon League or it_ equivalent. Selinsgrove, in that State, has a saloon for every 297 inhabitants. and in one of the coal regions there is a drinking place for every l.'JO voters. Klupmont, another mining town, has one saloon for every 13 voters, and Mt. Carmel applies for saloons for each 23 voters. It may be, however, that many of the inhabitants are not naturalized citizens and so do not count. We perfer the "blind tiger" to the saloon if we have to .have one of the evils, for the "blind tiger" can be cap tured and punishcd for dealing out the deadly poison and the saloon can't be molested. The money spent for "booze" will go into the legitimate channc ls of business, and thereby the people will be by far the better off, and the community more prosperous and thriving. Is it not plain that whiskey is not the best for a community? ? Chase City Progress. ANNUAL MEET OF STATE ANTI-SALOON LEAGUE. The akghtJl annual meeting of the Virginia Atiti-Saloon League will con vene in the city of Norfolk February 9ihtollth. The prospectusof the meet? ing iata forth an unusually interesting pro^rammj. It includes for the meet ings a large number of papers and re ports, with many addresses from not only Virginia speakers but others of country-wide fame. Among the topics to be discussed are "The Dispensary", "Womanhood and the Saloon", "The Saloon and the Social Problem", "The Uhild and the Saloon", "The Saloon and Edacation", "The Liquor Evil as a Physician Sees It", "The Majesty of the Law and its Enforcement", "How the Law is Enforced in Local Option Towns'', and many other topics not less interesting. A most interesting state mont is included in the circular letter of the Field Secretaryin which he statea that? "Within the last seven years not less than 1500 saloons and 400 distilleries have been closed in the State of Vir? ginia. Eleven out of her nineteen cities have voted dry; 140 out of her 162 towns have abolished the liquor traJBa Eighty-five of her counties are without any saloons at all; sixty-five of them being without any form of license. There are only ten saloon towns in the State, and twelve other towns having dispensaries." A number of delegates from the Rappahannock section have announced their intention to attend the Ccnven tion. KNEW WHEN HE WAS HAPPY. The soul of an editor who had died of starvation was being conducted to the Elysian fields. As they passed tht portals of the infernal regions, he asked his guide if he might not go in and look around. The guide consented, but warned him to stay but a few minutes as he could not stay long, says Lippin cott's. A long time passed, and the editor had not returned; so the guiding angel went in search of him. He found him before a cage in which a number of doomed wretches were being toasted on redhot griddles. Over the cage was the sign, "Dehnquent Subscribers." "Come," said the guard. "We must be goin<?." "Don't wait for me" replied the editor, "I am not coming. This is heavenenough for me!" Never go to law, boys. It is a dan vjerous game, unless you know you are in the wrong; for then you are apt to win. But if you are right don't go to law, lor then they'll prove you are a thief and soak you for the expenses, and you'11 know that if a man takes your cloak give him your coat also.
