CAROLINA Ml WITH iSTOMACH V. K. Davenport, of Parker, Better After First Dose of Remedy. W. R. Davenport, of Parker, N. C, long suffered from a peculiar malady of the stomach. He sought treatment with but little relief. At times it seemed as if he would have to give up hope. He took Mayr's Wonderful Stomach Remedy and found immediate bene fit. He wrote: "For years I have suffered from a disease which puzzled doctors. They termed it catarrh of the stomach, say ing the only hope would be a change of climate, and that in all probability I would never get well. Then I heard of your remedy. One trial bottle gave me instant relief. It made me feel like a new man. Your full course of treatments has about cured me. Sev eral of my friends have also been cur ed." Thousarvls of others suffering from 'maladies of the stomach have found SOWING SEEDS OF SUSPICION Published by request The man who looks wise and hints darkly of the misdoing on the part of those he' responsible places in a denomination, without making specific charges, is an unworthy coward. And. there arc such men, and they do im mense damage, for they know full well that they cannot sustain it, but they can create suspicion in, the minds of honest men and cause them to stum tie. A man professing to be a gentle man, not to say a Christian, who will do a thing of this sort ought to blush with shame every time he looks in a mirror. It is the duty of us all to cry aloud and spare not when we see dan gers ahead in the affairs of the King dom. Every man ought to be a watch man on the walls of Zion. We should spare neither ourselves nor our friends in jeopardy; but that is one thing, and what we are discussing in this article He who endeavors to engender -distrust or doubt in the minds of those over whom he has influence, without coming out in manly fashion and telling the straight truth, ought at once to be discredited by those he "is trying to poison. Here, for instance, is a Man in a responsible place in our denominational affairs. . Somebody whispers in somebody else's ear: "He is a good man in some respects but better watch out. Something is going I to drop some of these days"; and with a knowing wink drops the . subject.

Charity and Children. EYES Mortimer Collins. There's the eye that simply reflects a mere retina, a mirror and, no more, People with that sort of optical in strument go through the world with out a suspicion of its mystery and its magic. They look with an equal in terest on an oak and on an omnibus, unaware that the oak has its Dryad, and the Dryad perchance her Rha ecus. They see no Dryads, bless your heart! nor any Naiads with soft solu ble limbs in wandering waters, nor any ghosts in grim old houses, though ancient unholy murders be photo graphed on their walls. Worse than that, they never see their wives and children. They perceive fine, well dressed females, and jolly young cubs of their own race, but the divinity of womanhood and the mystery of child hood are alike beyond their ken.

Nearly four million acres In the United States,, it is estimated, have been devastated! by soil erosion, and a vastly larger-area has lost much of its fertility. Nowhere is soil erosion more serious than in tue South. The climate, the character of the soil, the economic conditions, and the type, of agriculture, which has. hitherto pre vailed, have all contributed to the damage, yet with the exception of the amount of rainfall every factor ia ero sion can be controlled by mail. Soil erosion is the carrying away of the soil by the action of wind or wa ter. In the South the action of water is much the more important. If all the water-that falls upon u given area were to be- absorbed by the soil, it would cause no erosion. This, how ever, scarcely ever happens. Wsfere the slope of the ground or the char acter of the soil is such that the wa ter runs off rapidly. It carries with it1 a very appreciable quantity of "soil particles, the quantity increasing as the speed of . the running water in creases. Where this erosion is exces sive the soil is left bare aud gullied. The land is hard to cultivate and so much organic matter is taken from it that it is frequently abandoned as too poor for profitable agriculture. To check this process, terracing, deep plowing and the use of cover crops are advantageous. Vegetation not only hinders the flow of water over the surface, thus lessening the amount of erosion, but the roots strik ing through the soil loosen it and en able it to absorb the water more read ily. In the South the use of cover crops for this purpose is particularly important because so much of the rainfall in this section is in the win ter when the land is frequently bare of crops. Winter rye is particularly advantageous in holding the soil. The value of deep plowing lies in the fact that this loosens the soil for a consid erable distance below the surface and thus enables the water to be absorbed quickly. Terracing obviously is de signed to provide level areas for the water to fall on Instead of steep hill sides down which it can rush. The importance of measures that will check erosion is indicated by the fact that In some southern states vast areas amounting sometimes to 60 per eent of the arable land in these sec tions have been abandoned because Feeding Oevlea to the water has carried off much of the best soil and impaired the value of what has been left. On moderate slopes in the Piedmont region of North Carolina erosion has been esti mated to cause a yearly loss in crop values alone of three dollars an acre, making the total loss in this region over two million dollars each year. On the other hand, there are many hilly farms in which excessive ero sion Is effectually prevented. Farm ers who wish detailed Information of the best methods of terracing and oth er means of control, should write to the United States department of agri culture for Farmers' Bulletin No. 20, Circular No. 94 of the Bureau of Plant Industry or U. S. Department of Ag riculture Bulletin No. 180. When land has once been badly eroded the task of reclaiming it Is apt to be difficult and long. It can be done, however, and at times may be made very profitable. An Instance of this Is a tract of 38 acres near John sa City, Tenn., wheh was purchased F ;i r years ago for $53 an acre. At u lime the land was badly eroded tere was one gully eight or ten f . ?ep. This the new owner filled ebris and soil, 200 loads of ma n were applied, and the soil was I to a depth of ten inches, plant rye and the rye turned under, leep plowing and the organic in the rye left the soil in such. sr. fSf... - ? $ f- - "H$'J DURING FARROWING condition that practically all the water which fell on it was absorbed. As a result the land increased in value so that the owner declined $100 an acre for it. The cost of reclamation was approximately $10 an acre. It is sim pler, however, to prevent excessive erosion than to- reclaim land after It has occurred. Locations for Creameries. In developing the dairy industry throughout the South a very important matter Is the selection of the loca tions In which to erect creameries. No one would build a sawmill where there is little or no timber suitable to be made into lumber, and it would be equally unwise to start a creamery where the supply of milk and cream is insufficient for economical opera tion of the plant. In many dairy re gions creameries have been operated successfully and have brought pros perity to the community. On the oth er hand, there are many closed cream eries in the United States and many farmers who have lost money by un wise investments in them. The first essential for the success of a creamery is a sufficient supply of milk and cream. An insufficient sup ply means a lbss for all concerned. The number of available cows in a community' is frequently overestimat ed. About six hundred southern cows should provide raw material enough, and if this is sent to the creamery in the form of whole milk the cows should all be within five miles of the creamery. i In order to keep expenses reasona bly low, an average of at least 1,200 pounds of butter must be made each week, which will require about one thousand pounds of butter fat. The smaller the output the greater the cost per pound of butter, for some of the expenses will remain approximately the same whether the dally output Is one hundred or two hundred pounds. If a careful canvass reveals the fact that,' excluding those required to -meet the demands of home consumption, the necessary cows -are available) the information should be sent to either the state agricultural college or the Dairy Division, Department of Agri culture, Washington, D. C, with a re quest for plans and advice for the organization, building and equipment of a plant that will be likely to suc ceed under existing local conditions. Next to an insufficient svpply of milk, one of the most frequent causes Prevent Crowding. of creamery failures Is the erection of poorly planned and cheaply construct ed creameries equipped with expensive but more or less useless machinery. Many creameries have been organized by promoters who derived their profit from the sale of the plant and its equipment, not from its. successful op eration after they, bad severed their connection with it la consequence, it was to their interest to unload as expensive and as poor a plant upon, the farmers as they could. Cases are on record in which promo ters have secured the signatures off, farmers to documents which purport ed to be nothing more than a general expression ot opinion that a creamery in that place would be a good thing. Later it developed that the document was an iron-clad agreement to take stock in the company. Creameries or ganized in such a way prove profitable only to the organizers. Moreover the iauure or. one or two such companies t) serves to discourage dairying In that I ' region for many years thereafter. Before it ia decided to build a cream ery, therefore, its prospective share holders should convince themselves of three things: (1) That there will be milk and cream enough for it to be operated economically; (I) that the marketing facilities are adequate! and (3) that the plant to be built Is well designed and equipped and the cost reasonable.
