j k lesson From Hatnre.
(By Kabl Lanorxreck.)
v\ hen wash day came around,
old Mrs. Sims filled her tods from
the water barrel that caught the
rain from the roof of her cabin
down near Nortb Bend way on the
big^.Miami Kiuer. But in dry
weatlier, she lia<raT>airtime. The
boy* had to fetch water from the
river. Miami river water is hard
aa blazea and washing in it ia gome
job. In the drought of /17, the
boys had to go to Cincinnati and
they filled the water butt for her
before they went. It waa three
day* before wash day. Next day
Jimmie and Sara Slick were fool
ing 'round the yard. They had
chased the chichens and walloped
the ahote* and gotten fr lickihg
from Mrs. Sim* for general devil
ishress. They were mad and bound
they woirtd do "mora" a turn. So.
when she waa taking a snooze,
they up and shoveled a lot of dirt
in the water butt to fix her against
washday. My, wasn't she mad
when alie saw it. The boys dursu't
come nigh her. ? Well, wash day
ciiine, the mud had settled and
Mrs. Sims was highly careful how
she dipped into the barrel so as
not to stir it up, The boys were
still keeping pretty quiet but they
saw that "mom" was hulking ter
rible pleased over the tub. "Boys"
says slie, "wasn't this here witter,
rivsr water?" "Yas'rn", ssys
Jim. "Wall. I declar", says Mrs.
Sims, "itsydum'soft like rain wat
er. I do believe that mud you
'uns put in have took up ail the
hardness." '? *"*"
Now, this ig'true and every old
farmer in Ohio and IndiHiiaknowiv
it. Hut, there in much more to it.
limn the mere softening of water
for washday. Tlio it is thin that
tells the story, which is, that a
+ime-hungry soil will take lime
from a, natural water and leave it
soft. For it is lime and magnesia
in solution that makes waters hard.
Where ever you find sections with
river bottom lands that have a
great reputation for fertility you
can be sure that the river waters
which overflow them, in the Spring
freshets, are very hard waters
bearing a fairly good percentage
of lime and magnesia. There
waters standing op the land, lose a.
part or all of their lime and mag
nesia which are then .retained by
the aojj beneath. . This is true of
all these lands in the Mississippi
Valley, Ohio. Kentucky, Indiana
and the Val|,ey of Virginia. Thb
flood waters standing on these bot
toms lime them and it is easy to
show it chemically.
Now, why is it that such lends
have no such reputation in Virginia
and North Carolina east and south
of the Shenandoah and Potomac
flood plains. A mere glance at the '
analyses of the river waters of the
country, published by the govern
ment. tel la the story. "The waters
of the Miami, Maumee, Kentucky,
Muskingum, Cumberland, Missouri
and Cedar rivers of the middle
west contain six to twelve times
the amount of lime and magnesia
at that contained in the Dan, the
Neuse, the Pedee, the Roanoke and
the .lames rivers of Virginia and 1
North Carolina. Tho, the James
gets thru its tributaries from the
Valley enough Time to make it 1
something of an exception to the
rule. This is the reason why even
bottom lands, ns well as other
lands, in the South must be limed

What Tuberculosis Day Should
Mean to North Carolinians.
Broadly speaking Tuberculosis
Day i? n national movement hav
ing for its aim the prevention of
tuberculosis, but more directly
speaking, it is a personal responsi

it comes as a grave responsibility,
imposed by lite 4000 needless
deaths annually in pur state from
While the plan of Tuberculosis
Day is an edncaliOiud campaign
against tubprculo*is, its ultimate
aim is prevention, for knowledge
is power. With this in view the
preachers and (lie churches have
been called on to present to their
congregations ; the nature and
methods of prevention of tuber*
culosis, or souorf feature |>ertainiiig
thereto. T^e movement is un
denominational and nonsectarian.
Its aim is toNcaayh Jew and Gen

Futhermore it aims through the
church, through its message and
presentation, to reach lodges,
schools and varioua social and
'ci\ic bodies of the country.

Now that prosperity and good

for the towns in this section to
organize Business Men's Associa

engaged in boosting a town, good
results are sure to come. There is '
