"No: a very elegor.t title!" you say. 1
1 N"o, indeed, and not a very elegant
hab.t you wiil agree. Not a very
legant thin:.: to (k. this spitting. In
' fact a very disgusting species of
j license.
You do not indulge -n it? So much
the better then, but do you allow your J
friends, your father, your brother,
your husband, or your sen to do it?
SO-O-O-O? You do not spread disvasc

1 kr.ew a 1 ttle boy once,?a lad of 1
\ about nir.e years, lie was bedridden. ! <
: had been so for over a year when I
j first saw him. Pitiful little chap?j:
Alex! Had tube ro-ale-is of the bones 1
; and the knee joint was larger than a ' ,
| football, by a goo-t deal. The particles !
of bone were coming through the fit sr. i
which was also diseased. The odor i
vus so off ens \e that r< - r.c ut * e
j doctor and the g? ? ?i nurses, the father, j
:nd the mother would visit r.i? nos- |
pital room. One day, with his face I'
quivering, he turned .is appealing
eyes to mine and said, "i wish the ,
?ther children would come in and ,
play with me. Not even the little;,
Jesus would come to see me. I guess." (
You think i should not till you such
a story? How else am I going to
make you see how terrible a thing it
may be to expectorate in public
places, or t?.r that matter in anv ulace
except into a handkerchief or it?
equivalent, which can be boiled or
burned. How can you care unless you
know of some of these awful constqeunces,
to children especially, which
follow carelessness-.
I know the old excuse. You and
they "have not the germs of tuber
culosis in your non- and throat." Ho**
do you know? Pneumonia, influenza,
diphtheria, scarlet fever, and most of
the other infections?how are they
spread if not in this way and by
coughing ar.d sneezing improperly?
Little children are the ones who are
most frequently endangered because
?f their great susceptibility. Doctors
and nurses are all the time seeing just
such suffering Alex went through.
It is not rare. It s not necessary.
Use your scouring powders and
your soaps, by all means, bat in the
name of pity and decency, wipe out
the prevalent habit of spitting. Make
yours a "spitless town" in the full
meaning of the t< rm.

since then probably not over 20 pei
cent or one fifth has been mnrketci

The density of population and th<
nearness of markets, and their demands,
made cooperative marketing
less essential. Economical or efficient
production was their piohlem. as il
is rapidly becoming our impcrativt
problem, and they have devoted theii
attention to it and through educatior
and cooperation have come nearei

when 1 speak of cooperative production.

few facts regarding how this bacoof

First, ther'e are cooperative breeding
farms for the improvement of
the breeds by breeding.
Second, a type of hog is chosen
developed and maintained l?y co
operation that will produce a hit?h
quality of pork. Two white bieeds
and only two. are used.
Third, there is not only enforcement
of those heed requirements
but there is also supervision by co
operation in the feeding,.
