colic, which he had for three months.
My mother, who had used Teethina
twenty years, advised me to give it
to niy baby. I did so and he soon got
all right and at five months weighed
pounds. He is now so big and fat

Colic is caused by indigestion and
is often the result of overloading

Teethina soon relieves this condition,

KNOW NOTHING OF LAUGHTER
Most Solemn People in the World
Said to Be Aboriginal In
habitants of Ceylon.
Laughter and the faculty of being
nerry and bright are gifts of the gods
to a world in which there is not too
Much sunshine at any time. But this
?ift, according to scientists, has been
lenied to the Veddas, the aboriginal
inhabitants of Ceylon.
They are the 'only people in the
world who never laugh, and in conse
juence they are thin and flabby folk.
For nearly 2,0Q0 years, according to
the best chronicles, these people, now
almost extinct, have preserved the
same characteristics, and no one has
ever seen a smile on the face of one
of them or heard a laugh while in
their section cf Ceylon.
Why these peonle do not smile Is a
mystery. They alone of all the people
on the earth kTiow nothing of the sen
sation of laughter.
A scientist, who Journeyed to Ceylon
for the purpose of Investigating this
question, persuaded some of them to
permit him to tickle them in the ribs
and in the middle of their feet with
straws. He never caught even the
flicker of a smile on their faces, nor
did lie ever succeed in making one of
them squirm during the operation.
Another strange thing about the
Veddas, and one which may possibly
be connected with their lack of humor,
is the fact that every one of them is a
George Washington, unable to tell a
lie or to conceive of anyone else tell
ing a lie.
They cannot even believe that any
one\ would take the property of any
one else, and association with civiliza
tion has failed to convince them that
It is possible.
With all this—or, rather, without
all this—the Veddas are a peaceable,
gentle, quiet people. They take wives
without any marriage ceremony, and
are faithful and constant to them.
Government Apprenticing System.
The Australian government has laid
the foundation for future supply of
good workmen by regulating the ap
prentice system by which the interests
of all the parties concerned are taken
care of. The pay, care, instruction and
amusement of apprentices are pre
scribed in carefully prepared laws. In
certain specified districts, instruction
from a state or continuation trade
school, approved by the authorities,
must be given £or not less than five
hours a week for not less than three
years and this must be given on the
time of the employer. If the appren
tice elects to take such course in his
own time, allowance must be made for
it upon his term of apprenticeship.
Apprentices must be allowed all holi
days or paid for their services upon
such days at the rate allowed for adult
workmen. All disputes between ap
prentices and employers must be set
tled by the board, which has the power
to prescribe a punishment in the shape
of a fine.

* Farmer* in State* where the boll weevil
first appeared have proven that cotton can
be successfully grown even in badly infest
ed sections. If you are willing to faithfully
follow the rules for weevil control, rules dis
covered by the U. S. Department of
Agriculture and vouched for by all county
and State authorities, you too can make
money this season on your cotton, despite
the boll weevil.
Remember, you can not neglect one of
these rules and expect to get the best of the
weevil. For the information of our good
friends who grow cotton, we' briefly state
below the ten rules to be followed. Tear .
them out of this paper, and keep them ever
1. Grow not more than 8 or 10 acres of
cotton to the plow until you learn for your
self how many you can handle profitably.
2. Prepare land early. Break heavy lands
in the Fall, sandy lands earlier than usual.
3. Plant early, using delinted seed for
quicker germination and better stand.
4. Plant early fruiting varieties, such as
Cleveland, Cook or Express.
5. Fertilize liberally, both to hasten ma
turity and to set unusual quantity of fruit.
You must depend on phosphoric acid for
an early crop. Bto 10 per cent on sandy
soils and 9 to 12 per cent on heavy soils.
Apply when rows are bedded, at least two
weeks before planting.

8. Gather and destroy infected squares.
When squares flare open and turn brown

your chance to do the weev4ls the most
damage. Gather all .such squares, whether
on stalks or on ground, and destroy them.
9. Use calcium arsenate poisoning on

agent. While the,U. S. Dept, of Agriculture
says this is the best method, you won’t suc

10. Destroy stalks early. Gather cotton
and immediately plow up or otherwise kill
the green stalks on which the weevils feed.
