Keep Out the Moisture. A very effective agent for moisture proofing wood has been found in an aluminum leaf coating. This coating practically insulates the wood against any change in atmospheric conditions, and is particularly valuable for use where accurate form and balance must be maintained, as would be necessary in an airplane propeller. . - Great Care Taken of Silk.

R. Sam, County A s in addition' to the. usual -work plan- tied lot the farm,- there are several things which we want as- many far mere asi possible to undertake during the incoming year. First We. f under- took lastyear the task : of drivin? scrub poultry out of Polk county;-and the - resu.lt ris, that there ;. are many larmers now in the county who have nnrA hrpd noultrv hf HiffPi-fmt hrwda So it will bean easy matter: to . sret started in this . line of ; work. i and I urge veryfarmerwho has not done so, to urucur some eggs ana sutru next spring. Second, The next step is to bejji to grow hogs ly ihe.moft improved mettiods, and that . is to procure pure bred stock and trrsfrAnv1 rrona for tWn. A mitnhfcr of faiTners have organized themselves into a' Hampshire 5wine ' Breeders Association for this purpose, and to standardize the i growing of . hogs in the - county. Third, we want :. to press thelowing: of I pei manent ? pastures harder : than ever; tecause : the boll wevil is 'ch his wav ancl liable to be in Polk! countv even " next : vear. and I pastures, crop rotation and live stock is the only solution -yet discovered 1 besides, thi,t isthe only : logical ' Way i to farnt anywayCFourthVvwe waflt to try hardr. than ever, to learn v to co operate . in. many : ways more thor- oughly.than in fyears ; gone by--we want to organize some real commun ity If arm clubs and do - some i active community! work that will make the commumtya l)eterplace to live; such as jpeiter roads, better '. schools, bet ter pastures; and. live stock and then I ' Jt2x-l "' V mi .' 'V' by ,'alV-" means we . want the ; soil of Polk county Tanns- left at , the close of nexr year, .in better-condition than at Uv,?i ;,-w.-. h i-' rn-i ? ' , , L , : r-L r xw. w -w-k 'J 11 'J. ni 'T'Ji and shallow cultivation or any other kind of cultivation alone ; when the crops are removed and nothing re turned to compersate for the loss "of plant food that went into the crop, the land is left poorer. We must learn once for all that we . . cannot make something out of nothing. So when we grow a crop of corn, wheat, cotton, hay or any other crop, the soil gives up part of its fertility to produce the vcrop, and it is our place to learn and practice such a system of farming as will replace these lost elements! of plant food. .. This can be done by growing and turning under TRYON WALKABOUTS AND TALKABOTS. A cynic , says that whether a wo man's will is stronger than God's der pends upon who starts in first. The down east contestants of a late lady's will found that it was stronger than j theirs anyway, and learned that I "They are but fools who think by force or skill To turn the current of a woman's will." o The two following ' incidents vshow I that Tryon people, if not leading a cat-and-dog life themselves, are tak ing a good deal of interest in it. While devouring a tender fried pul let, a Tryon woman with the vigor possessed only by the Tryonese,- de nounced a neighbor's cat for devour- ing humming-Diros. jne was re minded that the famous old Roman epicure who made a feast of nightin gales' tongues, was not a cat, but a human being who ate pullets as well as hightgale?. However a; cat that will eat humming-birds, instead of English sparrows, has not been well brought up. It needs training. Among Tryon talk-abouts is sheep raising, it's reaiiy a question oi aog raising; whether the people of Polk county would rather raise sheep or hunt rabbits. A vagabond dog re- centlty became the mother of a litter of six, near a Tryon residncee and the women of the household when they heard of it rushed to the spot to have the whole batch, drowned of course? Not on your life! feed and care for six future sheep. butchers, capable of making way with a score or more in a single night. Yet probably the . tchances ' are that these i tender-hearted women went back to their . growling oyer the high price of muttton and winter clothing. egume crops, ana growing - cattle sheep, hogs 'and -poultry pnthef farm C and feeding1 our. crops and returning " he manure to the land supplement- . ing these with' acid phosphateirftrate , of soda, etc. During these lonz win- - ter nights" is" the time to plan for all x ; this 5 work which, tmu3t be done next spring and summer- so there is 'lots ' for Polk county farmers " to think about this winter ; and ' while we are . thinkng about v- our' Vfarm improve- ; ments for ; our own sake and the sake of those dependent upon us, let us- think- in broad ." terms - that will take in the interest df our' neighbors, and let .us not . confine our neighbor --to the man that: lives nearest our dodr: because that modem, appliances have brought the whole world Into a neigh-' . borhood, V - -x Look well ..to the family health. Better, keep well ' than expose -your self in bad weather and have to: hire a doctor at a high price to cure you. ; Any way, Jsn't : the Chinese way of hiring a doctor .' to keep you well more ' sensible . and bettter than to go on carelessly aiu get jsick and then hire him to cure. you. When:weH"a little ' advice-rfrom 4 an honest ; doctor, taken, might' save a big doctor's bilk By the way nine f tenths of, our ills, and perhaps ninetynine . hundredths, come from our own carelessness and fault. ' . . - ,i Now listen, Polk county farmers " , we love .all our neighbors , 0 ; yes- ' certainly we do, but t you see we are . trying to keep liouse in Polk county and not many of our neighbors send , any . business - over our - -way so my ' advice, is ; that we s had-better " attetnd . aurfovrn. knitting , and 'keeV -onr-' yarn where, we "can put our hands on . it when knitting is to be done Do you see the point ? When you sell cotton or anything else ; and deposit your money in a bank out of the county, you are helping that county to grow rich at the expense of your own. And helping to educate some -, body else's children and let your own remain in ignorance. So let us all get . together and support our home institutions and get somewhere. I believe in PULLING for POLK COUNTY or PULL OUT, and give room for some one who will PULL. Somebody once said that God could have made something better than a peach or strawberry, but doubtless God never did. The same of Tryon's Thanksgiving weather. There some time may have been a finer Thanks giving day, but even the "oldest in habitant" couldn't have remembered any. It was a sublime cocktail " .of weather; just the right amount of January and February temperature mixed with the exact quantity of Au gust and July, the most . glorious of blue sky above, the most splendid of gorgeous tree coloring on the earth beneath. The Blue Ridge lived up to its name. . Old Tryon never looked higher, serener or more dignified. Anyone not thankful for such a day on the edge of December, should bei deported to the North pole in Decem ber and the Equator in July. ADAM JAY WALKER. ! J Foundation of True Beauty.
