ON LARGE SCALE
V. Campbell of Maggie, Haywood
County, has found that grocery stores
catering to a select trade will pay
him 40 cents a bushel above the mar
ket p.'ice of irish potatoes when he
produces the so-called "baker" type
of potato an ^ he is cashing in on the
idea on his 1400-acre farm located on
Mr. Campbell has 100 acrcs of his
land planted to irish potatoes,
says H. R. Niswonger, extension hor
ticulturist at State College. One sec
tion is devoted to growing the baker
type .neighing .from one to 2 1-2
pourj^/'ach. These are sold to a
larg4jR)cery store in Asheville. Last
year, Mr. Campbell sold 400 bushels
at the premium of 40 cents above the
market price. The remaining acreage
is given over to producing seed po
tatoes of the Green Mountain and
Spaulding Rose variety.
Niswonger says Mr. Campbell's
idea came as a result of training
given his son Hiram by the local vo
cational teacher and the county farm
agent. Hiram saw the need for grow
ing a supply of seed and of producing
something unusual from a market
standpoint. In producing the baker
type, Mr. Campbell plants a large
seed piece with one eye 18 inches
apart in the row. Ordinary seed po
tatoes are grown 12 inches apart so ,
that th? tubers will not weigh over
S ounces each.
In addition to the commercial pro
duction of irish potatoes, Mr. Camp
bell has 300 acres of pasture on which
are grown 100 head of cattle and
300 sheep. He also grows cabbage,
onions, rutabagas, snap beans and j
broccoli. He is now building an air- j
cooled storage house in which to store
his expected crop of 1,000 bushels of .
irish potatoes and other farm pro
He has found, says Niswonger, that (
it pays to do something a little dif- ]
ferently from what neighboring farm
ers arc doing. ,

"NEARER MY GOD TO TIIEE' |
When William T. Stead, a noted!
English journalist, was making a col
lection of "Hymns that hatl helped,"
he wrote to many well known people
asking them which hymn helped them
most. Among those he asked was the|
Prince of Wales, afterward Edward
the Eighth, the father of the present
monarch. He received the following
reply from the Prince through his
"December 29th, 1895.
"Dear Mr. Stead:
"The Prince of Wales desires mo
to thank you for your letter, and to!
say that he fully appreciates the com-;
pliment you pay him in your propc-j
ed work. His Royal Highness would]
have gladly lent his aid if it had been j
in his power, but he fears an oppor
tunity for doing so will hardly be I
given' him. He directs me to mention '
that among serious hymns he thinks
there is none more touching, nor one
that goes more truly To the heart,
NEARER MY GOD TO THEE.
"Believe me, Yours very truly,
"Nearer, my God, to Thee
Nearer to Tliee!
E'en though it be a cross
That raiseth me.
Still all my song shall be,
Nearer my God to Thee ?
Nearer to Thee!
Though like the wanderer,
Daylight all gone,
Darkness be over me,
My rest a stone
Yet in my dreams I'd be
Nearer, my God, to Thee ?
Nearer to Thee.
The hymn is as dear to tne peas
ant as it is to the prince. Bishop Mar
vin^ wandering homeless in Arkansas
during the war, and almost inclined
to despair, found himself marvelous
ly cheered and reproved when in the
midst of the wildness he overheard
a widowed old woman singing
"NEARER MY GOD TO THEE'
in the midst of a dilapidated log
cabin. Her wretched poverty was for
gotten as she sang:
"There let the way appear
Steps unto heaven;
All that Thou send'st me,
In mercy given;
Angels to beckon me,
Nearer by God to Thee
Nearer to Thee.
Then with my waken thoughts
Brightly with Thy praise,
Out of my stormy griefs
By Thee I'll raise
So by my woes to be
Nearer my God to Tfiee.
Nearer to Thee.
Another story of the Civil War
tells how a little drummer boy whose
arm had been shot off at the battle
of Fort Donelson, died on the battle
field-, singing with his last breath,
Nearer my God to Thee.
"Or if on joyful wing,
Sun, moon, and stars forgot,
Upward I fly;
Still, still my song shall be,
Nearer my God to Thee ?
Nearer to Thee.
It might fairly be called the most
popular hymn" among all sorts and
conditions of men in American.
Dear Father, how. can I tell The<
how I long for Thee, how my heart
is restless away from Thee, and how
r>iv life finds its barrenness made
:ch only when I hold Thy dear ham
:r.d. serve Thee. Forgive me that J
lave not loved Thee as my God ought
Lo be loved. Forgive me that I hav<
measured Thy commands as if ther>
were threats. Forgive me that I hav<
been peevish under restraints whicl
were only meant to hold me till 3
could understand Thy ways better
[May my life, through Jesus be con- i
i seoatcd to Th?e, and find in Thy j
caro the sunshine and peace for which i
t pines, and may my heart always
, and everywhere by truly only Thine.)
j Diar Father, my Father, the;
Father ot' my Lord Jesus Christ, j
make me truly Thy Child in spirit |
and in love, that J may with a clear |
heart know Thee in this Thy divine j
| relationship to me; Let me be asham- !
ed to be afraid of Thee or to doubt !

lowship, that I may not tremble in I
loneliness or in battle. And when at i
last Thou dost call me tc come nearer j
then let Thy Son, and my Savior, j
I take me by the hand and lead me tc |
Thee as His redeemed ore. For His I
sake ask it. Amen.

You know yourself far better than do ?

you do not misjudge. There is no one

Inclined to spend so much time telling .

ing anything to back it up that you

Chicago. ? America is faced .vrith
a transient jobless problem such as it
has never knowr..
Hundreds of thousands of unem
ployed and. homeless men are roving
An astonuding number of these
nomads of unemployment are boys
and young men.
Joblessness, failure of local relief
work, poverty ? these are mainly the
forccs driving this great army of the
roads. But they take to the brake
beams more often than to the roads.
Kansas City reports that in May
more than 1,500 men and boys daily
passed through the freight yards
In eight months the Southern
Pacific ejected 416,915 members of
this new wandering horde.

army is not of the old type. Many
have high school and college educa

Last winter the tide flowed south

report such numbers of itinerant
travelers as to leave the roads help

Towns on the route of Southern

Nature's Own Secret
3f Health Revealed
Science Discovers That Good Health
Depends on Supplying- the System* with
Necessary Minerals and Vitamins. ?
Medical Science has discovered that'
the human body is made up of a very,
limited number of essential elements.
All of these nic found in the Mineral,
kingdom and in foods in their natural'
slate. To be exact, the healthy human
body is composed of eleven Minerals and
when these are present, in balanced pro
portion, we enjoy good health i
PROPER FOODS ESSENTIAL
Unfortunately, few of us give any
thought to balancing our di'ts, accord
ing to their Mineral content., and there
fore we mu=t pay the penalty A defi
ciency of these elements brings on Indi
gestion, Gas, Hloating, Constipation,
Headaches. Nervousness and a host cf
other ills. We soon lose strength, go
from bad to worse and become disgusted i
with life itself.
NEW WA\ TO HEALTH
For many long years, Phyjiciars and;
Chemists have been trying to combine,
in proper proportion, the eleven essen
tial Minerals with necessary Vitamins
They realized that the preparation must
b* easily assimilated and supply the
